No real spoilers here because I only came home in time to catch the very end of the episode but wow...those last few seconds had almost everything that captivated me about SPN in the first place -- the music, the atmosphere, and Dean's perfect, perfect face.

It's been a long time since SPN gave me goosebumps but wow. Goosebumps it is.

Took my breath away.

I'll be interested to see what you thought of the whole episode when you get a chance to see it.

I just watched it. Thought it was okay. The MoTW was pretty straightforward, a little on the meh side. The girl who played Chrissy was very good -- I think the producers must have had True Grit in mind when they cast her because she looked exactly like Hailee Steinfeld. I had to laugh at the way Frank kept telling Dean he looked terrible because I should look half so terrible. Really though, those last 10 seconds or so, they really knew what they were doing with that long closeup. Pure fanservice and I ate it up. Golly.

Have you seen the actress gushing over Jensen on twitter. She is adorably adoring of him. https://twitter.com/#!/MadisonBlaine95

Who could NOT gush over Jensen?

OMG I just noticed your icon says four-nine-four! LMAO there's nothing quite like Dark Angel!

Hah! X5-494, my first Jensen-shaped love.

Yeah this little Madison has been gushing over him and his acting since she shot the episode way before the holidays. They really seemed to bond. Apparently she had a birthday on set and they got her a cake and she posted pix and Jensen had that beautiful Jensen smile (as opposed to the various Dean smirks. You know the one I mean. So shweet.

At least Madison didn't tweet episode spoilers like that poor silly thing who was in "Girl Next Door!"

And that is why I can't completely quit this show. Fuck you Jensen.

That's exactly what I was thinking. No matter how boring this show gets, they just have to throw me something like that last shot and I'm back in. SHIT.

I may have to join the "I Wish I Knew How To Quit You" club that you and mangokulfi have created. :) Is there a meta post somewhere that may explain why I just cannot let Dean go, no matter how uninteresting his plight?

So, what do you think is the explanation behind the vanishing beer? Maybe our favorite functioning alcoholic didn't remember drinking it?

Dean trying to smile through the pain had to be the best part of the episode. Didn't think he'd actually try it. Then again, I didn't think a guy who drinks like a fish could sleep for 36 hours and wake up not needing to pee, but I guess Dean's surprising that way. :)

My husband commented that Krissy came off as a teen girl version of Dean, and another LJ friend wondered if these writers know how to write a strong female character who's personality doesn't resemble Dean's. What do you think?

I don't think you need a meta post to explain that -- IMO, he's just about the best-looking thing on television and he continues to bring the manly angst like nobody's business. Even when the show gives him so little to do, he's still the most interesting part of it just by virtue of his prettiness.

I've heard others say that Krissy was a distaff proto-Dean, which leads me to wonder if we're going to see her again. Given the show's premise, I don't know if they could introduce a strong female character who didn't resemble Dean; I long ago gave up any belief that a female character could be worked into this show and to be honest I don't really care. I have had many things on my wish list for this show over the years, but that was never one of them. They've let so many important things fall by the wayside that I don't consider the introduction of a strong woman to be a priority, and at any rate, the opportunity or need to do so passed by a long time ago.

I don't know what to make of the beer -- if it's another jab at Dean's drinking problem or if they're suggesting Bobby's hanging around in spirit form. Neither theory seems worth pursuing. I don't want Dean's drinking to become a topic on the show, and I don't want to see Dean and Sam exorcising Bobby from the house. And seriously, as hunters, wouldn't they have burned Bobby's body anyway, the way they burned John's?

I was hoping it was, like, Cas or something. Don't ask me how it could be him, but his body was destroyed and he could be floating around!

I found it funny in this ep that it started out as if Sam was going to go help the girl (thus Sam helping the living) while Dean was obsessed with the numbers (Dean focusing on the dead) but ultimately the girl wound up connecting to Dean more than Sam. Because that tends to happen.

I was kind of laughing at that myself. It seems like every opportunity that comes Sam's way winds up defaulting to Dean. Because he's awesome.

Just working my way through season 6 with your episode comments (very helpful!) and wondering if I should consider season 7, thanks for posting this, makes it seem like come what may there will be reasons, however small, for this show to keep stringing me along!
