SPN #11x21 All in the Family (episode review)  
Okay, here are some of my thoughts on this one, as well as some speculation for the season finale.

To start... Kevin!! I seriously was not expecting that. Even if it was just a quick cameo. As for the "upgrade" Chuck gave him...is he an angel now? Just simply gone to Heaven? What, exactly?

Chuck is so non-chalant, eating donuts, wearing Dean's robe, wanting bacon, lol...And the boys interacting with him. Dean is rightfully upset that Chuck was gone all this time and so many horrible things have happened. And then Chuck tells him not to compare him to John...Dean's face when he said that....oh gosh.

When he wasn't around and Sam & Dean were talking about him...Sam was so cute when he was saying there was so much he wanted to ask him about, like ears. LOL :)

Cassifer still makes me roll my eyes although he didn't seem as bad this time (I guess he really couldn't be with Amara torturing him).

Donatello is the next prophet. I loved Sam's bitchface when Dean asked if he was named after the Ninja Turtle, lol. Nice touch making him an atheist too, kind of goes along with the whole thing about the prophets being people who didn't ask for this. He seems like an interesting character, although what was up with those weird noises he was making in the car? Shuddering?

It does bug me how Chuck doesn't seem to want to fight Amara, and that he would sacrifice himself and apparently be caged while she destroys everything. It bugs Dean too, obviously. Especially when Chuck says the humans like him and Sam will step up and fight her. Apparently they are "chosen" and this is why Chuck saved them all those years ago (I'm assuming when he put them on that plane in the S5 premiere). This suddenly seems way too big to Dean and he thinks Chuck needs to be the one to fight her.

We also see more of Amara's hold on Dean. He wants them to go their separate ways. She tells him to just go but he says he can't. Is it all due to his connection to her, or is he also trying to buy some time for Sam, Metatron and Donatello to get to Lucifer?

Speaking of which, aw, Metatron is gone now. :( Even though he really annoyed me in the past, I thought he redeemed himself a bit in the previous episode, and even in this one when he told the boys about Chuck's plan (or lack of one) to stop Amara. Oh well, if he had to be gone at least it was kinda-sorta as a hero in that he bought the others time to escape. That was a close call with them and Amara...so Chuck did actually answer their prayers and beamed them back to the bunker. Hmm I wonder who it was that prayed...Sammy?

So it looks like Chuck healed Lucifer (I'm assuming he's still Lucifer, right? Just healed from the damage Amara inflicted on him?). So is he technically going to be on the side of Chuck & the boys in the fight against Amara?

Getting back to Amara, I can't stop thinking about the offer she made Dean, to leave this world and basically be one with her. Dean seemed dead set against it, but thinking back on Chuck talking about making the sacrifice, I almost wonder if Dean will do so? Maybe act as if he'll go away with her to buy the others some time, or if it turns out Chuck isn't going to do anything he'll make the sacrifice? Something Jensen said at Asylum this past weekend really had me thinking about this (I won't say what exactly so as not to spoil...if you don't want me to), although I'm not sure if he actually leaked spoilers or if he was just joking around.

Whatever happens, it seems like a big mess to me right now :P

I think it was Donatello who was praying in the car and who Chuck answered by plopping the Impala inside the bunker. I'm pretty sure I heard him say Chuck's name in all the muttering.

I too am sad to see Metatron go. Just when he was finally useful and likable. *sigh*

I'm very excited to see how this all pans out in the last 2 episodes. :D

I wasn't paying enough attention the first time I watched, but I rewatched that scene and I think you're right, especially from the way his mouth was moving there.

Yep, although I guess it's nice that he went out on a good note.

Me too :) I've seen several theories already, so I'm excited to see how close any one of them will be.

I think Kevin's "upgrade" was going to Heaven.

The ep was OK, we have had far worse.

I might get hate for this but fuck it, Chuck is pissing me off. When he said to Sam and Dean about letting Lucifer out again....yeah that was Castiel but whatever. And his I don't care act is annoying.

I loved Sam being in awe and fan girling though. And loved that Jensen changed the scene from Dean being angry to having him cry instead, it was so much better that way.

Still hoping we get a Sam/Chuck talk scene I mean Sam as always kept his faith and praying to God and it would be nice for Sam to get some attention from God.

Also like Donatello and I think that mumbling he was doing in the Impala was him praying? I have seen comments saying that Sam was praying and thats why Chuck saved them from Amara but I didn't see Sam's mouth moving.

I was starting to like Metatron, though I will never forgive him for killing Dean, he was finally helping.

Going to be honest I wish the boy's would stop with the spoilers at con's. (BTW I don't know what Jensen said and want to keep it that way!!XD) BTW is it me or is it always Jensen that gives away the spoilers?! S9 he said it was a "real eye opener", I think he was the one again to say a fan fav would die in S10 and now again for S11?! -_______- Really boy's can you not keep it too yourselves for a few weeks.


So I still think Carver what's to do ANOTHER copy of Swan Song. But with Dean saying yes to Amara and going into the Void.

Yeah, I think you're right.

Nope no hate from me hon, it's not just you who is pissed off by Chuck. I totally missed that the first time I watched it (don't ask how...I think I was distracted) but once I rewatched I was like "what?????" I can't believe he was putting the blame on them for letting Lucifer out, that falls on Cas. Another weird thing was how they had Sam just go off and get Lucifer even after the way he'd tortured Sam only a handful of episodes earlier. I really don't get these writers sometimes.

Yes!! Sam was so sweet there, his excited smile just made me melt. And I agree, it did work better to have Dean crying instead of angry.

I really hope there will be a Sam/Chuck scene in the next episode or even in the finale. We need to see some of that interaction, especially like you said after all of Sam's faith in God.

Oh I think you're right there. I went back and watched that scene and it looked like it was Donatello praying.

Me too! They just kill everyone when they do that! And yes, I've noticed that pattern with Jensen, lol. I think he did say something similar at this con but Jared kind of stepped in and deflected it by saying something about the other characters. Still I think it was too late.

I have to agree it looks like it's heading that way.

Yes and then that line to Dean "don't confuse me with your dad."

Fuck you!!! Sick of the writers putting John under the bus and hating on him. He wasn't perfect but he did the best he could and he loved his son's.

Yeah Sam's pain doesn't matter to Carver and some of his writers.

I'm not saying I didn't like the Dean/Chuck scene BUT it is annoying how Dean's lack of faith is noticed and talked about. While Sam's faith that he as kept even after every thing that he as been though is used as a "joke".

Sigh sorry to be a downer but I'm getting so fed up with the writers not being to give one brother the focus (thats be honest here it's pretty much always Dean.) without leaving the other brother (cough Sam cough) completely outta focus.
