Another thought: I am 99% certain that Watts is on their side. He’s a detective, he’s smart. He would have known to stay out of the whole thing so he could help them later. No one outside of station house 4 knows of his connection to Murdoch and the others yet, putting him in a really good position to help. He probably knows everything Murdoch does already (because, you know, plot). And now that I think about it, I remember either Graham or Davis saying at one point that George was the only person left at station house 4 who could help (before he got shot). I think it makes a lot of sense for Watts to show up and prove them wrong.
Either way, they’ve set him up for some Character Development™ in the next episode, which is all I wanted from this show anyway
Castiel takes his time in the bathroom of the cheap motel, slowly and methodically unknotting his tie. Ever so carefully hanging the suit jacket as to avoid wrinkling it. Carefully scrubbing his teeth with the minty fresh toothpaste he’d forgotten to return to the Bunker. Right now, he just wants any excuse to not have to face Crowley in the other room.
It leaves a bad taste in his mouth, how well they work together. Not in a Sam and Dean way, those two pair seamlessly, but more…fire and ice. Good cop, bad cop. Two wild opposites that just manage to subvert any law of logic saying they shouldn’t work. But they do, and Castiel hates it. Because if he fits with Crowley, well, that’s just another sign he doesn’t fit with the Winchesters.
He can’t help but feel a minor surge of irritation towards Mary as he spits out a mouthful of toothpaste. Mary belongs with Sam and Dean just by nature of the fact she birthed them. She won’t have to earn her place, she won’t get turned away. Still, as quickly as these thoughts come, Castiel expels them as he rinses his mouth. It’s not fair to Mary that he’s jealous of her, after all.
As he prepares to leave the bathroom, no doubt Crowley will tease him about this too, his phone rings. It’s an unknown number, but Castiel’s been in the game long enough to know you always pick up your phone. Just in case. He swipes the answer button and presses the phone to his ear. “Hello?”
But you know what gets me in that panel with Unnamed Falconer Player™ besides the angst? Is that he says “Big smile for Zimmboni!”
Like, I can’t stop picturing Jack walking down that hallway smiling as Bits chatters on about the jam and as he chirps him and how he probably hangs up and still has that smile on his face and far away look in his eyes when the light bulb goes off about the basement keys.
And I can see him SO clearly in my head, stopping in his tracks and taking out his phone again. And he could text, or he could wait a little (it seems like he was heading to practice or something since he’s the one who ended the first call) but he doesn’t, he veers over to the windows and stares out while he talks to this boy he is completely gone on, like he needs to hear his voice again immediately, like maybe he’s a bit tense and nervous and needs another minute to collect himself.
Jack Zimmermann who so rarely smiles has this big grin on his face and cant you just see that? Can you just see his face looking young and untroubled? Can you see his smile full of pearly teeth? Can you see the glow? Can you see the love written on his face?
“Big smile for Zimmboni!” means Jack looked happy. He looked like a guy in love.
i like how as soon as larry does something suddenly no one is allowed to enjoy things anymore becaUSE YOUR SHIP DIED IN 2012 NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT LARRY like why do you care so much if you don’t think it’s real just go on your merry way and let me have a fun time and idk consider petting a cute dog or finding a hobby that is not pissing on something people enjoy
