I liked the opening, the juxtaposition between the apple pie life activities and the things Dean used to do while hunting. I really think it's meant to be memories. Like...all these things remind him of these things he used to do in his real life.
Of *course* he keeps a gun and holy water under the bed. He's still Dean.
Okay, so the title shot. That usually has something to do with the season. Season 1 was sort of metallic, right? Season 2 was fire. Season 3 was demon smokey and lightning. Season 4 was wings. Season 5 was blood in the water. Season 6 is glass shattering? Maybe a mirror? The title is reversed in the shards. What's it MEAN?
It's weird, the whole episode is really brightly lit. It's not natural. *glares at show* Stop that! You're making me suspect that the *entire thing* is not real somehow. I mean, this is my second watching, so I know about the djinn and all, but this is different. It's *too* Mayberry.
Hi yorkie! So cute! Hellhound yorkie strikes again!
Heh. Lisa is not falling for your shit Dean. This is part of why I think I love Lisa.
Hmmm...I wonder how many times Dean has gotten 'worked up over nothing' in this past year? It's like a solider coming home from a combat zone. PTSD out the yingyang. Lisa and Ben are *good* for Dean. Doesn't mean I want him settling down with them by any stretch.
Creepy bouncing ball...
Hi YED! Original, crunchy flavored no less!
Oh, Dean, you don't ever believe you can have nice things, do you? I blame John.
The *whole* sequence with Sam 'proving' he's Sam is wrong. If a hallucination cuts itself, why wouldn't you hallucinate blood? And how do you know that's really salted holy water? Hmmm? I want it to be Sam, but it's all just a little *too* easy. Something must explode!
Dear Dean - punch Sammy in the face.
Okay, problem: Sam didn't ditch in a field. It was a graveyard. And realSam would know that. And if this is just writer screw up, I will be disappointed. I believe it's a clue! How does Sam know that Dean's always wanted a family? I mean, it's true, but Dean's always portrayed Hunting as what he wants. Suspicious.
And oh, hey, look, I pulled a bunch of Campbells out of my ass.
Hey! Christian is that guy who was supposed to replace Daniel on SG for that one season. Um...yeah. That failed.
Okay, see, so I can see Chuck or maybe even Cas pulling Sam out of the cage. I lean towards Chuck, because Cas would have told Dean, and while an angel is the only thing that can yank a soul out of hell, I think it would require magnitudes more power to yank a soul and a body out of a cage designed to hold an archangel, so Chuck. But why pull down Samuel from heaven? Makes no sense. I call bullshit.
Oh! Maybe Raphael. He's still around, and likely pissed off. Maybe Samuel's working for him?
Assume it's all loaded. Heh. I love Bobby.
*grin* I do love this part where Dean realizes they've all been holding out on him and forcing him to live this life he thought he wanted.
You know, Hunter's don't really retire. The only one we ever saw was the guy in the asylum. Not the best example.
Because a monster always shows up. Dean can't have nice things. Except the Impala. And Sam. And Cas. And you, Lisa, but only on alternate weekends.
Hey! That's it. Do a Persephone thing and split Dean. Half the year with Sam, half the year with Lisa. And Cas can just pop in when the mood takes him.
Sam, I like your car, but the Impala is BETTER. It makes me happy deep inside.
*chuckle* I do like the conversation between Christian and Dean. Kick him in the ass, Dean. 'It's almost like I'm a professional.'
It's long been said that Dean was Mary's son while Sam was John's. I see nothing to contradict that in this ep.
Do not trust the resurrected grandpa!
There go the neighbors. They were creepy anyway.
I love the djinn tattoos.
Hmmm...how many things may have a personal vendetta against the Winchesters? My guess is a lot. The djinn are just the beginning.
Dean's subconscious brought his childhood boogey man out to play.
I wonder what the Campbell's are going to do with the girl djinn. And what else they might have locked away.
ep 2: was that Cas's voice saying 'he's a monster'? Or am I wish-hallucinating again? Is the baby eating the mom?
