SPN #9x02 Devil May Care (episode review)  
Just some assorted thoughts on this one...


Um... So how exactly did Abbadon get resurrected? I'd have thought for sure the vessel was gone since she was burned in Sacrifice. Did I miss something? I thought I saw someone dragging her body in the beginning and doing something. I was distracted a little by the phone ringing (which was probably a solicitor... *snort*).

I am glad they finally addressed the issue of "is she/isn't she alive?" with Kevin's mom. After all, it wasn't really Crowley who told him that last season, right? It was a hallucination I thought, so we didn't know exactly what happened to her. Though who knows if Crowley is really telling the truth this time, either. Anything to get to Kevin. And the whole time I was thinking that Crowley wasn't really affected at all by the trial, until we see/hear all the stuff from the finale running through his head. Will be interesting to see how that all plays out.

I'm with Dean - this whole Zeke!Sam thing is going to take some getting used to. The way Jared was acting reminded me just a little bit of Samifer, at least in The End. And for the Stargate SG-1 fans, it made me think of the episode Holiday, where the dying Ma'chello used Daniel's body as a vessel... I keeping thinking of the way Michael Shanks played him, and I'm reminded of that, too. I do hope that Zeke is on the right side here, too.

I liked Dean telling Kevin that he's family. Poor kid though, the way Dean said that his mom would have to be dead to him even if she is still alive.

Hunter gal....wonder if she'll ever show up again. She reminded me of that girl Robin, the girl in Sam's mind after Cas broke his wall at the end of season 6 and she ended up being a girl that Soulless!Sam had killed.

I guess that's all I got for now. Oh, was thinking about something as I saw the promo for next week's ep (9x03), they didn't release any promo pics for it, did they? They usually release the promo pics for the next episode by this point, don't they? Guess they don't have any... *shrugs*

Yes, what you missed was he dragged the body into a tub and cast a spell with his blood, restoring the vessel.

What I enjoyed was the fact that when we saw Zeke's wings, they were TATTERED. That lends some credence to his story, in my eyes.

But I'm still reserving judgment till we know more. We're only 2 eps in.

I figured it was that, thanks. I got so distracted and then at the end, we had some noisy neighbors chatting outside. Some people have such lousy timing LOL.

Ooh, good catch! I went back and looked at screencaps and you're right. I think it does lend some credence to his story, too. At least the part about him being weakened. I believe Cas might also seem to have a positive opinion of him - when Dean mentioned him on the phone in the previous episode, Cas was grinning and saying he was a good soldier.

Yeah, it's still too early I think. We'll see.

Heh, these genre shows have a limited variety of plots. I wonder how it ended for Daniel, the possesion, I mean. I'm curious because I'm trying to predict what would happen with Zeke. He could just flutter away leaving Sam and Dean with a ton of issues, or it could be something more complicated.

lol, I'm definitely noticing that now. Well, it's interesting actually, not only did Daniel become possessed by the old guy, but they switched bodies. So now Daniel's consciousness was in this dying old man's body. They had to figure out how to reverse it, which they eventually did (and the old guy, whose body was badly damaged, ended up dying). In a later episode, though, there seemed to be some sort of "essence" of the old man left in Daniel, which helped them figure out how to resolve some organisms that were attacking them. It's a bit hard to get into, lol, but here are some links about the episodes if you're curious:

I am also curious what will happen with Zeke later, too.
