That title makes me giggle every time I type it or read it. This show needs Daniel Day Lewis, man. Or Leo. I'd take Leo.

So... I am still utterly underwhelmed by the Leviathans. In my opinion, the show is pushing the "They totally eat people!" thing way too hard. Particularly when they make the eating of said people so damn comical. When a monster's head pops open like a Pez dispenser to eat someone, I giggle. Sorry, it's just not frightening to me. Actually, they lost all credibility with me at the first "bibbing". I'm supposed to take them seriously after that? Right...

Speaking of which, is it just me or is Edgar way more bad guy like than Dick Roman?

I am worried about Bobby and his increasing anger issues. The last thing I want to see is Dean burn the flask and send Bobby on, but I'm almost positive that's what's going to happen. It's for the best, I know, but I'm gonna miss the hell out of Bobby and I don't think Dean will handle the loss well. The boy's already cracking under the strain.

I totally called the Alpha turning on the Leviathans, too. :D

One day when I'm really bored, I'm going to go back through all of Season 7 and collect all the Dick jokes into one place. Although, nothing will ever take the place of Sam's: "Are you strictly into Dick now?" The smarmy grin on his face was just priceless.

Favorite line of the night was from the Alpha Vampire: "See you next season."

Close second was Dean's: "Bobby can... Keep calm and carry on."

That's the sort of fan-service I enjoy. I kept expecting someone to turn, look directly at the camera, and wink at me. I enjoyed tonight's episode so much more than last week's and I'm actually excited for next week!

Even if it is the season finale... *sob*

For anyone who's interested, this is where I'll be chatting about SPN episodes from now on: [livejournal.com profile] spn_idgits

There's an intro and FFA post up here if you feel so inclined. :)

Man, I picked exactly the wrong night to tune into [livejournal.com profile] spn_party for the episode watch post. For one thing, I knew it was going to be rocky sailing, since it was an episode with Castiel in it. Regardless of what the mods of that comm say, the community is very pro-Castiel and it makes being a non-fan very difficult. Especially if you happen to also be a fan of Dean Winchester, who is fandom's current whipping boy.

Marvel with me at the incredible magnitude of assholishness required to bring the Dean bashing to me when I mentioned I was uncomfortable with it. Fortunately, there were a few nice people there, but I'm still pretty well put off that comm. Ideas are in the works to find an alternative, because I am seriously not putting myself through that again.

Anyway, about the episode... I honestly can't tell you much of what happened. That's because nothing much did happen. There was a new prophet... a terribly stereotypical Asian kid who was a cellist, top of his class, math nerd, cared only about school. You know what I'm talking about. There were more angels. Can I just say I'm sick of angels? Almost as sick as I am of Leviathans. Season 8 cannot come soon enough, I swear. I am officially over Season 7.

Meg was the highlight for me. I've been largely indifferent to her character for most of the show's run, but tonight made me appreciate her so much more. She was genuinely funny and consistent with the characterization she's had all along. Meg is out for Meg and whoever is helpful to her goals is okay and whoever is not is dead. I like that about her. She's up front about things.

I might have more thoughts on the episode after a rewatching. I was honestly too busy being horrified at the community post during most of it, so I probably missed some important bits.
