12x12 Episode Review - Still Screeching...this time about the colour “Peach”.

I gave my 12x10 episode review the title “Pterodactyl Screeching into the Void” because I was so happy about it I couldn’t help but scream with glee at practically every moment. I also said this: “I feel like there is so much to talk about in this episode that fandom will be chewing on it for months if not years to come.” I still believe this, I just didn’t expect that two episodes later I would be reliving this exact same thoughts and feelings. I considered 12x10 to be a one off, a glorious gift to fandom wrapped in a big destielicious bow. Clearly, we celebrate our fandom birthday only two weeks before fandom Christmas because we just got ANOTHER gift wrapped in an even BIGGER destielicious bow and I can hardly contain my glee. (baring in mind fandom Christmas falls on the tenth anniversary of tumblr and close to valentines day I can’t help but feel this was planned - PRESENTS ALL AROUND)

But anyway. Lets talk meta. Once again I am very late to the party as I doubt I will be posting this any earlier than Saturday evening when you have probably all been talking this to death for the past two days. But eh, I’m gonna do my thing and hope you all agree, or aren’t bored by now if everything I talk about is stuff already gone over by my fellow very talented meta writers.

Starting with the obvious, Director Dick Speight Jr and Writer Davy Perez made this episode an homage to Tarantino movies. Specifically Reservoir Dogs which has so many ties to this episode both visually and subtextually that it is kind of difficult to keep track of my thoughts on it. I have to confess, I hadn’t ever watched Reservoir Dogs all the way through prior to watching the episode because it never really interested me. However, after watching the episode for the first time Friday lunch time I decided that it was in my best interests as a meta writer to give it a go. I watched it and tried to take in everything Tarantino was saying and doing with this movie… 

Being a meta writing, destiel shipper with heteronormative goggles permanently removed since watching this show guess what the first thing I picked up on was? That’s right Mr White and Mr Orange… what WAS going on there anyway? Because these guys didn’t know each other very long but they became VERY close by the time of the heist. Poor Freddie and Larry. Such doomed tragic lovers… do we have a ship name for them yet? Frarry? Leddie? Or maybe just “peach” (hence my title)

I believe that when Perez was writing this episode he had a SPN character in mind for each character in RD (mostly anyway). Cas is obviously Mr Orange (the bleeding out from the stomach thing gives it away as does Davy’s tweet here. Here is who I think the rest of the characters are supposed to be:

Dean – Mr White (duh)

Mary – Mr Pink

Wally – Mr Brown

Sam – Nice Guy Eddie maybe? I struggled here

Crowley – I wanna say Joe. (though I also kinda think Ketch would be Joe here… its not too obvious)

Remiel – Mr Blonde (“yellow” hair)

Explanations and various meta under the cut. This gets long:

So, apparently, Dabb killed off Crowley because they no longer knew what to do with him and they thought he was getting boring. Meanwhile, Castiel has been repeating the same arc for how long now? Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Cas, and I don’t want him off the show, but he’s been following the same feeling worthless - trying to fix problems - making everything worse pattern for some time now, and Crowley is the one getting stale? Not to mention, Mark has offered to help with Crowley’s arcs and development, but for whatever reason, Dabb couldn’t have that - maybe he knew what Mark would come up with would far overshadow anything he did because it would actually be good.

The bottom line is, there was no good reason to kill off Crowley, and then to treat Mark like shit by cutting out what he wrote. Crowley and Mark deserved better.

I might be a bit slow today but what does Bobby's soul have to do with the Gavin situation..?

Hooboy! Okay, buckle up for some Wild Canon Fuckery. Seriously, this is one of the few Truly Effed Up Retcons this show has ever pulled, and by far the one that makes me the most *keysmash rageydoodles*

Let’s start out on a little Background Refresher on the State of Bobby’s Soul, just so we all understand what’s at stake here…

In 5.20, The Devil You Know, Bobby agrees to a ~shady deal~ with Crowley, in which he ~loans~ his soul to Crowley in exchange for the location of the horseman Death. In 5.21, we learn the terms of their agreement– that Bobby will theoretically be given his soul BACK after they stop the apocalypse… and Crowley even threw in the use of Bobby’s legs as a bonus (he’d been paralyzed since stabbing himself in 5.01 while possessed by a demon who was about to kill Dean…)

Anyhoodle, the apocalypse was stopped, Sam was soulless, Dean had “gotten out” and then gotten dragged back in… The world was going wacky in a whole new way, monsters acting weird, far outside their usual patterns, and most of s6 seemed like it was trying to deal with this strange upsurge of Monster Problems. Cas was busy off in Heaven trying to gather power to stop Raphael from restarting the apocalypse… And Crowley still hadn’t given Bobby his soul back…

So that brings us to 6.04, Weekend at Bobby’s. (written by Andrew Dabb, btw, who’s probably just as bitter about this timeline fuckery as I am) Bobby was mustering all of his resources trying to get enough leverage on Crowley to force him to return his soul. That took some doing.

Bobby tortured a demon into revealing Crowley’s human name (Fergus Roderick MacLeod), combined with Crowley having told Bobby that his favorite whiskey was Craig, narrowing down where in Scotland Crowley had hailed from. Bobby dug into his past (with the help of Rufus) and discovered Crowley had a son, Gavin MacLeod, who’d perished when his ship went down. The wreck of the ship had been discovered, and a ring belonging to Gavin had been recovered.

Rufus then went and stole the ring from a museum where it had been on display, and Bobby used it TO SUMMON THE GHOST OF GAVIN, in order to learn the location of Crowley’s bones. Sam and Dean then FLEW TO SCOTLAND TO DIG UP CROWLEY’S BONES BASED ON THE INFORMATION THEY GLEANED FROM GAVIN’S GHOST. BECAUSE BOBBY HAD BEEN ABLE TO TRACK GAVIN’S RING TO THAT SHIPWRECK.

This was the leverage Bobby needed to compel Crowley to return his soul. Sam and Dean standing over his grave, flicking a zippo open and closed, threatening to burn his bones… which is death for a demon.

So in 9.21 when Abaddon went back in time to pull Gavin out of his timeline the night before he was supposed to embark on that fateful sea voyage, thereby BORKING THE ENTIRE TIMELINE AND EFFECTIVELY RENDERING THE EVENTS OF 6.04 IMPOSSIBLE.

If Gavin stayed in the current timeline, there was no way for him to have died on that ship. There was no way Bobby could’ve retrieved his ring, or summoned his ghost. There was no way for Sam and Dean to have gone to Scotland to dig up Crowley’s bones, because without Gavin’s information, they wouldn’t have known where to dig.

There’s an argument that it was because of this “timeline borking” that allowed Crowley to bring Bobby’s soul to Hell in the first place (as we learned in 8.19, Taxi Driver, when Sam’s Hell Tablet Trial to free an innocent soul from Hell involved rescuing Bobby and returning his soul to Heaven). And on the surface that seems like at least a head-scratchingly plausible theory.

I mean, Bucklemming were responsible for 8.19, 9.21, and now 12.13 as well… but 6.04 and Gavin’s original inception were on Andrew Dabb. He’s likely been pissed off for years about this fuckery, and now that he’s showrunner he actually gets a say in fixing it. I’m really happy for him… :D

Because while the “Bobby’s soul” part of this equation is sort of handwaved by this theory, it doesn’t cover ~every other damned thing~ that was utterly borked by having Gavin yanked out of his timeline, INCLUDING the fact that this began the “saga of Crowley’s bones” that became a legit plot point later in s6…

It’s just… infuriating, because if the events of 6.04 were rendered impossible and never set to rights, it just leaves this gaping hole through which the rest of subsequent canon is built on a non-existent foundation. And that really, REALLY grinds my gears.

I hate paradoxes, basically.

They really need to fix this.

stories i will probably never write: elodie evie andrews

Ellen Harvelle’s job was to protect her little sister (she wasn’t that little but that’s what Ellen likes to think). She had to look out for Evie Andrews and threaten every guy that looked at her sister in a way that she didn’t appreciate it.

As much as Evie loved her sister, sometimes it became too much. She couldn’t look after her twenty-four seven and make sure she’s okay. Not especially when she knew Evie was a hunter and killing demons or any other supernatural creature was her forte.

Evie just never thought crossing paths with Sam and Dean Winchester would turn her world upside down and facing supernatural war would be a thing.

note; I couldn’t find Ellen’s last name before she took her husband’s, so I came up with my own.
