SPN #9x11 First Born (episode review)  
Just a few thoughts on this...


I knew they were going to draw that parallel between Dean and Cain. I honestly groaned when they did. Although I liked what Dean said about family (though Cain had a point when he said "where is you brother now"). And I admit I did cringe a little when Cain gave him the mark. I know he wants to use it to kill Abbadon, but I hope that is all he will use it for and not something else.

Always like Dean and Crowley working together.

As for Sam and Cas...that scene about the PB&J... I thought Cas had eaten food before as a human. Wasn't it in My Bloody Valentine when he was going crazy eating all the burgers? Or does that not count because he was affected by Famine like almost everyone else?

The fact that Sam wanted Cas to keep going with taking out the grace, and what he said.... It was heartbreaking. I did like what Cas said to him about Dean though or rather about the two of them. And about Sam himself. Did anyone think that Cas healing him after the grace was out was too easy? Though I don't know how else Sam could have been healed...
 
 
Current Mood: blahblah

Was the episode any good? I'm kinda looking forward to the Sam/Cas scene's but on the other hand I'm like, fuck Dean's going to get all the action as usual, while Sam is busy "cough" outta the way "cough" >.>;;;

How the ep end?

It wasn't bad. I found some of the Sam/Cas stuff a little awkward, but some of the more serious conversations were good. Cas apologized to Sam & said that he screwed up more than anyone (including Sam).

Dean did have a lot of the action and the whole thing involving Cain. I basically groaned and cringed when they made the parallel between them and then Dean got the mark from him.

It ended with Sam & Cas basically concluding that they have to find out where Gadreel went from Metatron, and then Dean realizing that Crowley set him up for the whole thing with Cain.

I agree, the healing was too easy. And Sam's willingness to die is still there. I need to rewatch. It would be fun if Dean got possessed by something for a change!

Yup, I noticed that too. I guess they'll revisit that.

I agree! I wonder what's going to happen now with the mark from Cain.

I'm so interested and confused by the Cain mark thing, especially because the mark didn't just transfer from Cain to Dean. Now they BOTH have the mark. You could see it on Cain's arm just before he attacks the horde of demons at the end. I'm wondering if it will have an effect over Dean like the demon blood did on Sam or like maybe it'll have him become drawn to demons or something. As in, he 'senses' hunts/monsters and has an internal urge to kill them more so than just reading about a case in a newspaper. I'm thinking of this because the mark was still hurting him in that last scene when he's alone. That has me wondering.

As far as Cas eating the burgers a few seasons ago, he did that because his VESSEL felt the urge to eat the meat, not Cas himself. So I think Jimmy wanted it but Cas couldn't taste it, at least not in the way a human would. I'll have to go back and rewatch.

Same here. I'm really curious about where that's going to go. I kind of like that idea, of Dean being able to "sense" hunts or monsters.

Ah okay, you're probably right. I almost totally forgot about that.

I accept the handwavy healing of Sam because it means he is finally healthy. Grade A depression, yes, but at least he isn't sitting in a corner and waisting away anymore
jessm78jessm78 on January 26th, 2014 07:32 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I have to say I am glad that Sam is healthy again. I didn't want that to drag on for the rest of the season.
