Supernatural 3.11 - Mystery Spot
(condensed version)

1. The two of them rushing their teeth together, and Sam getting all impatient with Dean. (justlikeanoldmarriedcouple)
2. And Dean dies.
3. And Dean dies again (and peed himself).
4. And again.
5. And again.
6. And again.
7. Aw, poor Sammy.
8. "I get all tingly when you take control like that."
9. And again.
10. Sam Winchester wears make-up. Sam Winchester cries his way through sex. (By the way, BEST SCENE EVER.)
11. And again.
13. Wednesday, and Dean still dies.
14. And from here on, I was a complete mess. You should know why.
16. HUG.

That is all.

In conclusion, WOW. Sam being all bad-ass was incredibly creepy. His face was really rigid and cold. And that whole sequence with Sam going on the hunt all by himself was genuinely well-done. We've all seen Jared being all bad-ass in Born Under A Bad Sign, but watching Sam, really Sam, go to the dark side is a little bone-chilling.

Question though, did Sam really go through months like that? Or did the trickster somehow speed up time? Or was it all an illusion? False memories? It doesn't quite match up. It appears as if he was a vindictive, selfish bastard who seek only revenge (ref: John Winchester, Gordon Walker), and the moment the trickster showed up and gave Dean back, it was as if as those tough times Sam went through by himself didn't happen. hunter!Sam is so different from defeated&angsty!Sam. The only reason I could think of is that those times never really happened, probably just illusions or false memories. For Sam's sake, I hope so. Another question, so what did the trickster really do? Manipulate dimensions? Time and space? Create illusions? Perceptions? I have no idea anymore.

Next question, why did the trickster go through the trouble to teach Sam a lesson? Just for fun? Which side of the war is he on? He appears to be a little worried about the enemies using exploiting Sam's weakness. I am guessing he's neutral, but he would not rather have demons control the world. That will spoil his fun, won't it?

Those stuff aside, excellent episode. Although I must say, the tone of the episode swayed so much, it kinda threw me off a little. It switched from light, to heavy, back to light, and then OMG TOTAL ANGST, and half the time, I'm not quite sure what I'm suppose to feel. But that last part of the episode? I was such a mess afterwards. SO MUCH LOVE.

I wondered about the trickster too. Since he's a semi-god, I thought he wouldn't really care about who wins or loses in the war. But then he wouldn't have gone the trouble to teach Sam a lesson, so I guess he'd rather have the good guys win. Man, I don't know. XD I'd like to know more about his motives, though.

Thank you for the songs! *downloads*

Yeah,Sam was pretty dark at that one point when Dean died. man! I couldn't believe it was the trickster again. But I knew he was alive of

It was sad see Dean keep dying all those different ways. And I can't imagine how hard might have been for Jared & Jensen to

Hey! I haven't seen you post one of these in awhile. : )

Yeah, this episode sort of tore me up. One minute I was amused and then I was sad and then I was kind of horrified and then I was sorta turned on. It... confused me emotionally!

Question though, did Sam really go through months like that?... ~ See, this is the part that has me conflicted. I was thinking one thing and then I kept reading in a bunch of reviews something different. I'm still a bit confused as to what I think definitely happened.

(I posted a question about it here in my journal if you want to see what other people seem to think the answer may be.)
