SPN #9x14 Captives (episode review)  
So, new episode on my birthday. Yay, right?


Well...meh.

At least for the angel part. Honestly, I don't know how much less I could give a crap about the different factions fighting and Bartholomew and etc etc etc. The two different plots in this one didn't seem intertwined at all and IMO it would have been better for both to get their own separate episodes. Maybe the fact that they were discussing Metatron is part of the myth arc, but still the two plots didn't fit together seamlessly. Maybe other people don't care and I'm just too critical but it just irks me. Bart was killed off, meh I was not attached to him anyway. And we learned that there are angels willing to follow Cas ( or at least they tell him that).

As for the other half...well I just need to say this upfront first....

In the bunker in the beginning..... Sam's hair!! Looking all long and bouncy....thanks SPN for the birthday hair porn :D Though I wish it'd been that nice for the whole episode. The scenes in the storage unit...did he use Vaseline as shampoo or what? LMAO, seriously hair dept, use the opening scene as a guide and keep his hair like that for each scene this season. I mean for reals, his hair in most of the preview for next week nearly made me weep (though it looks glorious in one of the promo pics). Be nice to the hair please, kthxbai. (I know I'm too obsessed...please don't mock lol)

*cough* okay as far as the rest of that thread...I honestly did think that Kevin's mom was alive the whole time. Nice to see it confirmed. Sam and Dean's interaction is at least civil through this case, if not a little frosty (like in the summoning Candy scene). Not that that isn't expected at all. And as expected,  Dean is still feeling really guilty for Kevin's death.

So the guy keeping Kev's mom captive is a shapeshifter working for Crowley. Why does the actor look so familiar to me? He looks like he was in another episode in the past, but I can't put my finger on it. Nice that Mrs. Tran got her revenge for Kevin's death and was the one to kill him. I liked her scenes with Sam. And the look on his face when she wanted them to bring her to her son.

Kevin is reunited with her at the end and actually tells the boys to knock off the fighting and drama. And as kinda expected, Sam leaves the room as Dean's about to say something. It's way too soon for them to just call a truce like that and it would be the easy way out. Sam goes into some other room...can we assume that he's got his own room too now? Or did he go into some different type room? Dean goes into his room and listens to his music like he did in the beginning. Has he resigned himself to the fact that they can't just mend fences yet or is he just trying to put it out of his mind? I wonder what it will take for them to get back on better terms, something really big? Or is it something that will just happen gradually? Guess we'll find out.

I enjoyed it, but Bartholomew was such a B-movie Nazi. "Resistance is futile!" You're right, I could give a crap about the angel war. They managed to keep it on earth for three seasons, you think they could go back there?

Oh goodness, yes!! Complete with that cheesy grin with those thousand-watt pearly whites. *snicker*

My thoughts exactly!

Sam always had his own room. It's where they watched Game of Thrones and Charlie noted that it was completely not personal. So, I think he went to his not personal room that he doesn't consider home.

As to what it will take to get then on better terms, from tonight I'm guessing Sam just admitting that he should never want anything, never do anything without Dean's consent and just turn his mind, body and soul over to Dean to use as Dean wishes, because absolutely NO ONE will give Sam one ounce of consideration, just tell him to get over it and let Dean be Dean.

Oh goodness, I totally forgot about that *blushes* I haven't rewatched that one ( yet) since I first saw it.

You mean that's probably how TPTB would want to portray it, right? Which yeah, is ridiculous. After reading some comments about this one, people are saying that Kevin's speech was pretty pointed and meant for Sam pretty much. I guess I could see them wanting to show it that way *sigh*
percysownerpercysowner on February 26th, 2014 05:20 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm starting to get concerned that TPTB have decided to go with Dean was right to let Gadreel possess Sam and Sam has no right to be angry. If they aren't going with that, they are certainly writing things to look that way and making those who are angry at Sam feel more justified. I just want one (good) person to tell Sam he's right, but it's looking like I'm not going to get that.

Sorry to interrupt but this 100%!! Also people saying Kevin was just talking to Sam, need to actual watch the scene again. He was telling BOTH Sam and Dean to "get over it". Which did rub me up the wrong way, cause Dean hasn't even said sorry to Sam about the whole Gadreel mess. So for me, no Sam shouldn't just "get over it".

LOL! Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel. ;-) Bur yeah, I'm starting to fear that will happen.
caranfindelcaranfindel on February 26th, 2014 03:20 pm (UTC)
Totally agree on Sam's hair. Awesome in the beginning and then he needed to wash it.
jessm78jessm78 on March 4th, 2014 02:16 am (UTC)
Glad it wasn't just me. I hope his hair will be better in tomorrow's episode.

Happy Birthday hon!!!!! \0/ Hope you have a great day!!

Snap!! I couldn't give a flying fuck about the angels and their war. I'm so over angels. STOP STEALING SCREEN TIME FROM THE REAL STAR'S OF THE SHOW!!

It's so clear the writers are only doing this story-line as to "show" look we still need Castiel on the show....>.>;;

Also I don't understand how the hell there are angel's that still like Castiel/want to follow him. He as caused more mess/trouble for haven then Lucifer and he was throw into the pit. Why's he so special?!

Sam looked as good as ever.(Dean too!!)

Same I really thought she was dead, so glad she wasn't. Also seeing Kevin with his mum again was sweet.

100 points to the writers for having SAM yes SAM save Dean for a change, that's see more of this please.

BTW I was hoping Sam and Dean would make up BUT I get why Sam isn't ready yet. I mean Dean hasn't ever said sorry to Sam yet!!

Like the Dean/Kevin scene was good BUT now Dean as said sorry to pretty much everyone but SAM?!

Sorry I'm only seeing this now *blushes* but thank you so much hon!! I had a very nice day :)

I'm glad it's just not me. It is sooooo tiresome. They should be sent into a spinoff and let this show get back to the good stuff.

I loved the way Sam looked in the opening scene (that tight shirt and the hair...mmmmmm), actually he looked really good in all the bunker scenes. And Dean with the scruff :D

Me too, I loved seeing them reunited at the end.

I loved that too, it was about time!!

Yeah, I get it too. It would have been way too easy and too soon for them to make up.

Errr yeah that bugged me too. :/

Happy birthday!

How dare they not have perfect Sam hair on your birthday. I'm calling the showrunner! :)

I haven't noticed his hair in the bunker, I was looking at the pecs. *blushes*

I agree, the two parts were not connected, one was interesting the other was meh. Hopefully they'll bring it together later. I'm curious about what will happen with the brothers relationship, how it will evolve, the other stuff not so much.
jessm78jessm78 on February 26th, 2014 07:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

I know! The nerve of them! ;)

LOL, it shows I have my priorities all screwed up, eh? When he left his room in the beginning and started running into the main open room, all I saw was the hair bouncing up and down. D'oh! Now I have to rewatch that scene again.

Exactly. I'm really hoping so. I'm very curious too. I saw a promo pic for next week that has me wondering if they will be talking about stuff related to this... then again, promo pics have thrown us off many times in the past.
