SPN #7x19 Of Grave Importance (episode review)  
Not going to be too wordy with this one but I wanted to post my thoughts...

Okay, I love haunted house type stories. And is it me, or did they use the same location as the old hotel/inn/whatever from Playthings? Looked like it from the outside.

Nice little scene at the beginning of the boys eating in front of the car... even if it isn't the Impala.

Annie kind of reminds me of Ellen a little. At first I thought her name was "Andi", the way the boys were talking about her in the beginning... I swear it sounded like "Andi"... Then Bobby said "Annie"... maybe I didn't have my tv on loud enough, lol. She has a history with Bobby... and Dean... and Sam. That's...er...interesting. LOL. She and Bobby played off each other well.

So Van Ness ends up "eating" the other ghosts to become some sort of "super ghost"??

Awww @ Bobby trying to get through to the boys. Love the "I just made that curtain shimmy" line in the beginning. So he is indeed connected to his flask that Dean keeps on him. And I love when Sam realized that that was the reason Bobby wasn't answering him all those times... because Dean had the flask and Sam had been alone each time he tried to contact Bobby. Awww, I liked seeing the sorta relief on his face.

Loved Bobby's "they're a little slow" or "they've gotten a little slow since I've been gone" line when Ellen-er, Annie was trying to get through to Sam and Dean.

Time for a quick trip to the shallow end... Dean in the shower!!! Pity we didn't see much... Would have been nice to see Sam in the shower, it's been forever since Hell House, heh... And FreshlyWashed!Dean! Mmm.... As for this week's hair report, Sam's hair didn't bug me as much as I thought it would after seeing those pics from filming. Although there were a few scenes where it looked like his hair was too pushed back and glued to his head that really annoyed me. I must mock it in the forthcoming Puppy!Sam picspam. Obvious disclaimer... You guys know I've been loving his hair this season, but after seeing those pics I was prepared to hate it... Though it wasn't as awful as I was expecting. Most of the time, anyway. Heh...

So Van Ness sneaks something into Sam's pocket so he can sneak out with them. Kind of an "eep!" moment where he made Dean lose control of the car.

Bobby and Annie decide to put the spirits to rest and burn their bones. Thought Bobby was for sure a goner until Van Ness bought it.

I'm guessing that the boys were able to see Bobby because he gained enough strength to make himself visible to them? I guess I can kinda understand why Dean didn't like the fact that Bobby stayed away from his reaper, the whole thing about it being not right etc. I keep thinking back to IMTOD, where he seemed pretty close to going with Tessa (after what she told him he'd become if he stayed) until John sacrificed himself for him. But I just had to go "AWWWWWW" when Bobby told them that he wanted to help. Although I'm still curious, if they supposedly burned his body, how was he able to stay? Was it his love for the boys and his sheer determination to help them?

Curious about next week's ep.

That's about it. It's getting late, haven't got my PC reconnected yet so I'm downstairs on the netbook and keeping my puppy awake with the light (still not used to typing on this thing, esp. in the dark...heh). Have a good night, everyone.

Bobby's tied in some way to the flask Dean always carries. I loved the episode, it was definitely creepy and scary. We don't see many women hunters but the ones that are out there are probably just like Ellen and Annie: Tough and no nonsense.

That makes sense... so I guess to get rid of Bobby they'd have to destroy the flask somehow (not that I'd ever want them to get rid of Bobby!!).

Me too, love those good old creepy type episodes. Annie, like Ellen, was pretty awesome. It's a shame she had to die, but I really liked her in the episode.

I love that Dean showed strength and basically told Bobby it wasn't right for him to stay and stated it went against the natural order.

Yeah, and I guess it made sense given his experiences with reapers... I keep having in mind what Tessa told him in IMTOD... and then what happened in Appointment in Samarra.

I was thinking the same thing about Annie being just like Ellen. It kinda distracted me at first, but then I liked her and didn't care. Was kinda annoyed that the introduced this cool character just to kill her off, but that's our show. They like to mess with us. :P

Oh, how I loved all the Bobby stuff. And yay for the shower scene! Our show is such a tease!!

What I loved the most was how early-season it felt... a real haunting with ghosts and everything, but with a wonderful new-season twist. Kudos, show!!

I'm looking forward to getting my download and watching it again.

Yeah, I was kinda like, "Is this Ellen??" for a while LOL. I liked her too. Haha, they sure do like to mess with us. She did a good job in it, although I wish she'd lived long enough to come back for a second appearance (even though no one really "dies" in SPN).

Heh, I kept hoping that shower curtain would push back juuuust a little bit more ;)

Oh me too! I got more of an early season vibe from it... the creepy, haunted house type episodes are some of my favorites. They did a good job with this one!

I'll be DLing and rewatching to make screencaps for my picspam... can't wait!

Dull, dull episode. Sigh.

I'm a little divided about the episode.
but we have more of ghost Bobby, we see there are still other hunters roaming around (other than Garth) and we got shower Dean...
That alone made my day

YES, THANK YOU! Annie totally looked like Ellen! Are the writers trying to imply that Bobby has a type? But if that's the case... does that say something about our boys and Ellen too?... I hope not! lol

And second *high five* goes to your mention of the shower/mirror scene! I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. From the implication that we had naked!Dean behind that shower curtain, to him peaking out behind it, to his damp post-shower hair! ; )

I definitely loved the ending for how ominous it felt! What will happen to Bobby? Will he be able to finish helping the boys and leave before he loses control and either turns vengeful spirit or gets "ghost senile"?! *dun dun DUN!* ; )

Anytime! :D I'm so glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. Hmm that really makes me wonder! Oy, I hope it doesn't.,.. heh

Oh gosh yes, that was so made of awesome :)

Me too, it was almost like a mini-cliffhanger in a way. I'm so curious to find out what will happen to him now. Really hope he doesn't become one of those senile or vengeful spirits!!

"And is it me, or did they use the same location as the old hotel/inn/whatever from Playthings? Looked like it from the outside."

I really think your right, it looked like it to me to!! ^_^

I thought Annie was awesome and the episode was creepy and scary.

Glad I'm not the only one!

The actress looked familiar to me too, especially her name... I'm wondering if she's someone I saw in a show back in the 80s. Need to check out the IMDB!
Naomi: SPN Sam and Dean roadside scenefrelling_tralk on April 23rd, 2012 01:59 pm (UTC)
She was in Melrose Place and Savannah in the 90's
jessm78jessm78 on April 23rd, 2012 02:12 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, Melrose Place... that's one place I remember her from. Thanks!

I went to the IMDB and she was also in Just The Ten of Us, a sitcom from the 80s. That's def. where I remember her from. And now I'm probably dating the hell out of myself, LOL
werty30: samwerty30 on April 22nd, 2012 04:15 pm (UTC)
LOL, I must have selective hair blindness or something, because Sam's hair always looks good to me. Nice and pretty and probably feels like silk to the touch...
jessm78: Supernatural: Sam grinning in TKAAjessm78 on April 22nd, 2012 04:29 pm (UTC)
LOL, or I could just be extremely picky. ;) It did look nice and soft most of the time, just a couple of scenes where it looked a bit too much like a helmet for my tastes, lol.
Amyames1010 on April 24th, 2012 12:47 am (UTC)
Just wanted to say that I love you. :D
jessm78: Supernatural: Sam smiling (Salvation)jessm78 on April 24th, 2012 12:52 am (UTC)
Aww, love you too, bb!!

I felt that when the villain got through other ghosts, then the ghosts can be visible?
