I think I'm still shaking. Whoa.
I just piggybacked on somebody's nearby wireless and watched the latest two episodes of Supernatural. Holy CRAP. Why am I not watching this show full-time?
I wanted to watch this mostly because I wanted to see how the show actually did the idea I had for an SPN spec script. They covered all the bases I wanted to, plus some. Wow.
Also, may I completely fangirl Jensen Ackles for a second? I'm not talking his hot factor (which for me is right off the charts), but his acting is subtle and believable and sells everything about this show. Not that Jared Padelecki doesn't contribute loads of awesomeness on his own, but Jensen...owns this show. IMHO.
THERE ARE SPOILERS BEHIND THE CUT, PEOPLE.
I have no words. Okay, I do, but that last scene knocked them all into disarray. Suspenseful, interesting...I saw someone else call this episode "brutal," and that's right on. I want to talk about the shock of what happened at the Roadhouse, and the new backstory we learned (if the demon wasn't lying outright, and why should it?), and Dean receiving a vision....
But all I have in my head is the shock of that last scene. The knife twist. The echo of Dean's "Sam!" from the end of the teaser. The utter emptiness of Sam's body crumpled against Dean--I'm not sure I've ever seen anything more convincing on TV.
And Jensen, again...gah. There are no words. None.
