Supernatural: Let's make another 100
"I slaved over those burgers and beer for your 100th episode. The least you could do is sit and enjoy it!"
This week on Supernatural we saw Bobby get mad, Dean get desperate and Zachariah get even...sorta. We also saw a lot of other crazy crap, but that's just par for the course with this show.
The down-and-out Zachariah gets offered another chance in the game by the powers that be and immediately sets to work on the Winchesters again. Though some really big developments happened, the central story seemed to be the brothers' struggling relationship and Dean's lack of faith in, well, anything. Read on for some more brotherly emotional torture!
Strung out by a need to save as many people as he can, Dean is bound and determined to be the sword of Michael. He even gives away his leather jacket, probably the most comforting scrap of fabric since Linus's blue blanket. But Sam can't let Dean just give in and puts him under house arrest with Bobby and Cas.
We absolutely loved Bobby's scolding. He may not be Dean's father, but he's the closest thing the brothers have, and this episode saw him doing a damn good job. Even though it seems their family ties get them into trouble with Zacharaiah, we never get sick of seeing the small clan (finally) come through for each other.
Watching Dean verbally take down Sam was extremely hard. Basically getting a no-confidence vote regarding your addictions from the one person you love the most is devastating. It's even worse when they think you'll become a minion of Satan, as opposed to say, going back on cigarettes or killing people for sport. At least Dean got some retribution in the form of an angelic ass-kicking and a few tongue-lashings.
We got to see the Littlest Winchester...Milligan...whatever, again, who it seems has also been persuaded by the angels to be the sword of Zachariah. He's been told some unflattering things about his brothers, though he's definitely channeling a lot of Dean with that hard, sarcastic attitude. Shockingly, the kid is getting set up by Zachariah as a pawn to get at the senior Winchesters, namely Dean. But since Dean has a hard enough time letting one brother down, let alone two, the ploy backfires and he takes out his overprotective angst on Zachariah's head.
We also saw Cas bust out some mighty angel kung fu and trick his fellow angels with a sigil involving a glimpse of his abs. Sigh. But seriously, Cas, you let Dean outwit you like that? You're thousands of years older and wiser, so let's use our big boy brains, shall we?
All in all, the 100th episode was very satisfying. It had everything: some brotherly strife and eventual making up, Cas's bare chest, some Zachariah zingers, gratuitous violence, Cas's bare chest...
What did you folks think? Chime in!
Quote of the episode:
Dean: Cas, the last time someone looked at me like that, I got laid.
