Beer signs

anonymous asked:

I feel down after the new episode, do you think it is still possible that dean will stop sleeping around with women and get together with cas? idk i feel like it will never end and since 11x23 we've seen dean repeat too much that cas is a brother/best friend and it's starting to make me nervous

Well, Dean is a single man, not in a committed relationship (even if WE can clearly see he’s obviously married to Cas), who is allowed to sleep with whoever he wants. Period. But there are some things in that whole scene in the Pickle Jack Shack. And I mean really… the whole place is a sexual innuendo.

Sorry for my “photo of the tv screen screencapping” but… that phallic pickle protruding from the bull riding sign? Ooookay.

(this is also for my two anons asking about what the significance of “Riding Larry” is, so heads up. All will be revealed!)

Also, isn’t it awesome that Sam picked agents Moon and Entwhistle– the two deceased members of The Who as their aliases. THE WHO? on the nose aliases there.

Dean had been “Springsteen, like the Boss” the night before when he’d been talking with her. After she agrees to tell them everything that happened, here’s what she says, with my commentary in parenthesis:

Elke: He ordered burgers to go. It was gonna be a minute. We were slammed. And you knocked back… four shots of tequila?

(already yet another implication that Dean had been drunk, when four shots of tequila for him is probably a warm up)

Elke: Put some (finger quotes) “sick jams” on the juke, and then you hit the bull.

Sam: he what?

Dean: I what?

Elke: Oh yeah, you had the hots for Larry as soon as you walked in here.

(immediately setting an entirely different tone for this conversation, by presenting Dean’s interest in Larry– the mechanical bull with a huge pickle for a phallus– as sexual. Larry is a man’s name, and Dean had “the hots” for him.)

Sam: (quite befuddled by this) He… Dean… you rode Larry?

Dean: (considers this for a minute) Was I good?

Elke: You were– amazing.

(Dean processes that– the fact that he apparently demonstrated skill at riding Larry, and then hums in acceptance of the fact. He smiles. Elke smiles, Sam rolls his eyes so hard he nearly pulls a muscle).

Elke: Anyway, We got to talking, and… you know…

(remember what she’d said earlier, that they were “slammed,” meaning overwhelmed by a rush of customers. Not exactly the sort of situation in which a waitress can “get to talking” with a customer just waiting around for his dinner order to be ready, you know? I already suspect that Elke realizes that Dean WAS roofied here, and didn’t exactly remember what he’d said or done with her… AND THIS I BELIEVE WAS HER TEST TO PROVE IT. She needed to confirm whether he did or didn’t remember what had happened. I’ll quote her here, and then explain afterward)

Elke: (in response to Dean’s complete straight-faced, emotionless waiting for her answer) We blew off some steam.

(Dean STILL has to stop and work out exactly what she means, and then when it registers, Dean only replies with a surprised little “Ah!” Not seeming to recall anything. Because he didn’t. And this doesn’t seem to bother Elke. Because she’s already been told that he was “roofied.” Because most folks would be upset that someone had no obvious response to the confirmation that they’d apparently had sex… It’s kinda insulting, you know? BUT ELKE WAS NOT INSULTED BY DEAN’S LACK OF ANY SORT OF RESPONSE TO THIS INFORMATION. Like the slap to his face earlier implied she would be.)

Sam: Did you see him talking with anyone else?

Elke: My bartender said she saw him run out of here like his pants caught on fire. We were supposed to meet up after close-up. But you never showed… 

(Dean looks lost again)

Elke: Poor thing, you were all roofed up! I didn’t… I am so sorry if I took advantage of you.

Dean: (smiling uncomfortably… because yeah… and patting her on the arm) It’s okay.

(Sam asks if they have security cameras and then the scene shifts to Sam and Dean sitting at a table watching security footage on a laptop)

Dean: First action in I don’t know how long, and it’s like it never even happened. Figures.

Sam: Ha. See now that’s comedy.


Okay, now HERE’S THE KEY TO UNDERSTANDING THIS SCENE: waffles.

Yes, waffles.

Who doesn’t love waffles? May I direct you to the Waffle Masterpost, containing EVERY reference to waffles ever on this show (well, aside from this episode, but I’ll update it in a bit here…)

http://mittensmorgul.tumblr.com/post/156133372175/have-we-ever-seen-waffles-on-the-show-outside-of

But what it boils down to is the fact that waffles in this show share some of the same symbolism with El Sol beer. And if it wasn’t clear enough, there was a huge glowing El Sol sign there for good measure.

But as soon as Dean spotted Elke when he and Sam walked into the bar, he identified her as, “the girl from the waffles.” SHE WAS AN ILLUSION, A DECEPTION. She was the girl from the waffles. Waffles being a “more innocent deception” than El Sol.

Because her story of what she and Dean did contradicts itself. Either they were “slammed” to the point that they were so busy that Dean had to wait so long for his food that he not only had multiple shots of tequila but ALSO had time to ride Larry, or she and Dean had time for a leisurely chat and even MORE time to take a break and go somewhere to “blow off some steam.”

Which was it, lady?

She only knew that Dean LEFT, in fact “ran out of here like his pants caught on fire,” because HER BARTENDER told her. Because Elke was “slammed” with customers. THIS IS WHY SHE SLAPPED HIM. Because Dean ran out before her shift ended, when they were supposed to meet up. He ditched her, and then “pretended” not to even recognize her, after having chatted her up and made plans for after her apparently very busy shift, and that’s why I think she was just fucking with him here.

I mean, either she was so busy that Dean had to wait for service, or she had enough time to have some sort of long talk and a quickie in the bathroom or the alley or wherever. WHICH WAS IT, ELKE?!

So in the conversation that revolved around the fact that Dean had been “roofied,” bookended by “the girl from the waffles” and Dean’s assertion that it was “like it never even happened,” well…

I have serious doubts that anything really DID happen.

I mean, I think he was planning on something happening. He was going to go back after her shift to meet up with her… possibly… but did he ever even get his burgers?! 

And without his memories, is it weird that it took THREE TRIES to find the place Dean had gone that night. That place was the third one they checked out, and Sam would’ve followed the same sort of Hunter Logic in trying to find the burger joint Dean went to, probably starting with the one closest to their motel and working his way out. So Dean bypassed two other perfectly good burger places to walk to THIS PLACE SPECIFICALLY. This place that advertised the mechanical bull riding.

This place where Elke confirmed that Dean “had the hots for Larry as soon as he walked in.”

Dean went out of his way to get a burger from THIS PLACE not because he didn’t think the other burger places were any good, but BECAUSE HE WANTED TO RIDE THE MECHANICAL BULL. My guess? He probably saw the sign on their way back to the motel, and he gave the excuse to Sam that he was going out for burgers while Sam did the research SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE HE WANTED TO SNEAK OUT AND RIDE LARRY.

I mean… ???? This is one of those things that Performing Dean would NEVER do, would NEVER ADMIT TO SAM that he would do. Which is why Sam was so ?????? that Dean actually RODE LARRY.

Because Dean hadn’t been “roofied” yet at that point. That was all Dean.

He wanted to do something silly and fun and homoerotic without being judged for it. This is the same Dean that unapologetically loves Finding Nemo. And waffles…

So he has a few shots of liquid courage and climbs on Larry. We see that scene at the end of the episode. He fully gets that memory back, and what appear to be snippets of Hexed Dean Moments… and yet he gets no memories back of his “blowing off some steam” with Elke.

Because it’s like it never even happened.

I think Elke was slowly realizing throughout her conversation that Sam and Dean weren’t lying about Dean not remembering anything from the night before. So she went from angry over having been stood up and Dean “pretending” he didn’t even remember her, to passive-aggressively answering their questions… to noticing Sam and Dean’s bizarre reactions to hearing that he gleefully rode Larry… and then I think threw in the bit about blowing off steam with him just to see his reaction.

He seemed genuinely incapable of either confirming or denying it, and took her word for it that they did something sexual. He wasn’t gross about it, he didn’t elaborate on her assertion, nor did he immediately deny it either. He just accepted her word and moved on.

Notice immediately after that point she distances herself from Dean with her words… not “he ran out” or “I saw him run out, but “my bartender said she saw him run out.” BECAUSE ELKE HERSELF WAS “SLAMMED.” She was busy DOING HER JOB. She didn’t even SEE him run out without his food.

And really, how the hell long was he there, if he had multiple shots while waiting for the burgers, picked songs on the jukebox, rode Larry, made plans for after work with Elke (that he may or may not have intended to follow up on) while sitting at the bar while SHE WAS BUSY WORKING. Long enough after all that for her to not even notice him suddenly run out? BEFORE HE EVEN GOT HIS BURGERS?!

Like, how the hell long does it take to flip a couple of burgers? 15? 20 minutes tops? Even if they’re slammed?

And he still managed to do ALL THAT ^^ WHILE WAITING?

And then as Dean and Sam ran out the back door, we can see a GIANT glowing El Sol sign just inside the bar.

EVERYTHING that happened in there, aside from Dean riding Larry, was an illusion that started with the girl from the waffles and ended with him escaping out the back door past an El Sol sign.

The ONLY thing we actually SEE that was TRUE was that Dean rode Larry.

(aside to note that Dean confirmed himself that he hasn’t had any “action” in so long he can’t even remember when it happened…)

And for my Larry anons, I have no idea if “Riding Larry” is an idiom, but “riding” is a sexual innuendo. And the implication that Dean rode Larry… well… I mean just watch him and tell me what you think is going on there… Dean… riding a dude called Larry… it’s not complex math here.

(and heck here’s another reference… that time Dean WAS roofied in 9.13… SWEET POTATOES. Salted caramel. Best of both worlds. Salty and sweet. and that reminds me of the other “sweet” references lately in relation to angels… and we’re down the rabbit hole again)

Ok, controversial question warning. Aren't the Norse mostly violent? The historical records, the sacrifices and the die in battle or go to Hel thing makes me uncomfortable with the Scandinavian pantheon. Even more than other equally old or older mythologies. Old Testament included. Thanks!!!

Ok, so, I was really going to just say no and let it go but I’m honestly so frustrated because you straight up think the Norse(and do you mean the Norse people or the Norse pantheon -  you should really be more specific so I can answer more thoroughly) more violent than Christians and I would just like to casually remind you of the Crusades. Where a bunch of Christians just went an waged war on Muslims in the name of God and trying to eradicate them from the Earth. Like no one is more violent than Christian history. Ughhh. Anyways, I’m not going to deny Scandinavian history, yeah? Vikings definitely raided, killed, and raped, so have most militaries throughout history. It’s very unfair to the Norse deities and people to act like all they were was violent barbarians. 

Let’s begin with saying we don’t know everything about our gods and their history because there’s not that many resources on their stories or lore. Sure, our gods are a bit violent but that’s because they have to be - they’re warriors, they’re not immortal by nature, they bleed and breath just like you and I and they have to fight for that. As far as I’m concerned most deities are immortal and don’t have to fight to live. But really not all Norse gods are violent? Freyr(sweet precious bee dad) absolutely forbids weapons, armor, and violence in Alfheim because he chooses to promote peace and equality. 

Also, the Norse aren’t the first or only religion that includes sacrifices? Did you not have a history course in school? Manyyy ancient religions in civilizations practiced human sacrifice - Celts, Incas, and the Egyptians are the three that I remember the most from college. 

Furthermore, there’s more than Helheim and Valhalla when you die. Sure, Hollywood may make it seem like those were the only two options but you could be with Freyr in Alfheim, or go to Fólkvangr with Freyja. The Norse knew this, there were priests of Freyr who would work in his temples in hopes of going to Alfheim, it just so happens many of them wanted to go to Valhalla because it was d o p e. Endless beer, battles, and food? Sign me the fuck up.

To continue, can we please address that there was more to vikings than just violence? They were master blacksmiths and were forging incredible armor and weapons with iron/steel while many other countries were still using bronze? And can we talk about them being significant mercantile traders with parts of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Northern India, Kashmir, North and Eastern Africa. They were farmers, BOAT BUILDERS, and bomb hunters. the superiority of Viking ship-building skills enabled them to trade in much farther lands and carry way more goods and they were probably the most successful traders of their time?

I don’t know man, I had more to say but you’ve been kind of rude about this whole thing so this is it. Good luck.

Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell...

The episode title, in the subtext, refers, of course to the Crowley-Dean-Castiel love triangle of Heaven and Hell. 

Cas said “I love you” (in Stuck in the Middle With You) and Dean didn’t say it back. Cas is tempted by a return to Heaven…

Meanwhile Crowley, is, as ever, smouldering in the embers of his “summer of love” with Dean, and not remotely above needling Dean about their shared antics. 

“It can always get weirder…” (Don’t you remember, honey?)

Yep, Dean remembers…

Is that a painting of a giant feather on the wall behind Crowley? Yes it is.

Meaning - Dean is spoken for…

Crowley knows that of course, but still, here they are, almost like old times, chasing a Hell Hound in the woods after dark… 

What pretty eyes you have…

“Maybe, I rubbed off all over you….” ? 

We know you did, Crowley (you and the triplets).

Meanwhile, Castiel is tempted (right next to the El Sol beer sign) by someone who wants his hands… 

because (apparently) Dean doesn’t want his heart…?

“Dying to live
Living to die
Ain’t no hellos here
Nothing but goodbye
It’s like singing a song that cannot be sung
It’s like having to end child,
What’s yet to love begun 

Hey, hey, hey now
Where I am at times I just can’t tell
Hey, hey, hey, now
I’m lost somewhere between heaven and hell…”

OKAY LOOK AT MY CRAP GIF SKILLS, that basically involve me taking live pics of my tv screen with my phone. Now that we all understand that I fully acknowledge that I am crap at making gifs and I have zero business claiming this gif has any purpose other that making this one specific meta point, let’s move along to the actual meta point I wanted to make by inflicting this atrocity on y’all…

This singular moment, in my opinion, is proof that Mick’s past the point of any sort of “Come To Jesus” level redemption, and it’s all about the beer.

Yeah, haha it’s your expected stereotypical British reaction to drinking an American beer, a la that Eric Idle joke:

Haha, yes, hilarious.

But we know that the beer on Supernatural isn’t just beer. And the beer Mick’s drinking here is Margiekugel… which has been the Mom Beer, the Winchester Family Beer this season.

And this is the face Mick makes when he tastes it. He’s not willingly swallowing what the Winchesters are serving him.
