I’ve been thinking about this a lot. Oswald says it’s to remind himself never to make the mistake of letting love weaken him. That’s a great explanation for the whole popsicle!Ed thing but Oswald could have just brought Ed to the docks himself.
Why let him think he had the upper hand and another opportunity to kill Oswald? Was it simply to humiliate him by proving he could be outsmarted? Possibly.
I think there was one other reason for it though. This was Oswald’s version of Ed’s love test. In 3x14, Ed let’s Oswald think he has the opportunity to betray Ed to the trio so they can kill him. Ed’s reasoning for the test is that he wants to prove that Oswald’s love for him wasn’t real before killing him. I’ve always suspected that Ed did this because he thought it would be easier to get himself to kill Oswald after proving that his love was a lie and that he would sell him out to save himself. Oswald ends up proving him wrong, but Ed shoots him anyway.
I think it’s pretty obvious that Oswald is still in love with Ed in the finale. That being said, it must take a lot of willpower to freeze the man he loves. What’s one way to talk himself into going through with it? Prove that Ed would kill him again without hesitation. So he let’s Ed get free of his handcuffs, grab a gun, taunt him, bring him all the way back to the docks where he already “killed” him once. He waits for Ed to actually pull the trigger before revealing everything. Basically, Ed failed the test.
I really do believe that Oswald wouldn’t have been able to go through with it if he had any indication that Ed had regretted killing him. Or that he still cared about him but unfortunately he never found out about the drug use, hallucinations, etc (I’m still so bitter about that). So freezing Ed was the only thing Oswald could do instead of actually killing him. Otherwise, Ed would have continued to try and kill him.
When I created this blog in May, 2016 I never expected to have so many people following me. And now I just hit 5k followers!!! It’s insane!!! I can’t even imagine having 5k people in front of me. 5k people that for some reason found this blog and decided to follow. All I can say is thank you! Thank you so much for everything! Every reblog, every like, every message that was sent to me, to every person I met here… I love you guys so much and I appreciate every single one of you!
I wanted to make something special for this personal milestone of mine so here is a small follow forever with some of the most amazing people we have in this fandom. First, two special shout outs:
Honestly, whether Nygmobblepot goes canon or not, I’m going to watch Gotham regardless. But, tbh…it seems just odd that they would make a huge deal of Os coming out to say he loves Ed. Remember, nothing in this show happens for no reason. How many parallels and how much foreshadowing have they done in the past???
Look at one obvious one. Edward killing Kristen Kringle’s bf because he was abusing her. (Let’s face it; he was in the way…period.) and boom! They were in a relationship a short time later. Oswald had Isabella killed because she was in the way. If this is truly a parallel, doesn’t that mean Isabella was out to hurt Ed? I mean, she kinda already did by making herself look now EXACTLY like K.K…that was just plain WEIRD.
How many parallels have their been? I mean really? And foreshadowing galore? I’m not ready to give up hope for this ship yet. However, the entire show is amazing and the whole cast is fan-bloody-tastic!
Summary: Season 9 is well underway and Jensen is a little frustrated with his wife so far away. Misha decides to offer the wisdom and relief of Eastern mysticism and meditation to help them reconnect. It does not go as planned fortunately for all of us.
Summary: It’s Christmas and the otherwise so mild Vancouver is hit by a rare blizzard. Misha is hit by the flu and Jensen is hit by the urge to take care of Misha. Of course there are unexpected consequences to it all.
Summary: Jensen is happy that Danneel gets along with everyone from the show; especially the wives - which, doesn’t always bode well for him. Sometimes, however, certain things just happen to work out.
Summary: He has good reason to be paranoid - even if Misha is relaxed about the idea of the world knowing about them, Jensen sure isn’t. Life can already be tough in the public eye. Why would they want to make it harder by exposing all this? Yet, when it comes down to it, Jensen might not really have much say in the matter.
Summary: After an accident on set, Jensen is hospitalised and in a coma for 2 days. To everyone’s relief, when he wakes up he appears fine, but it soon becomes clear that Jensen’s memory has been affected. How much can he remember, not just about who he is, but about the people in his life, and what he feels for them?
Summary: Nobody told Jensen that activating his magical abilities to improve his everyday life would make him see the spirits and colorful little monsters living in the realm beyond. However, nobody could’ve prepared him for falling for a cheeky gypsy who was trapped in the spirit realm centuries ago and who already knows him better than his co-ed Danneel and fellow magician Felicia together. Misha and Jensen are head over heels for each other - if there weren’t those annoying technicalities, like the non-existence of a portal between the two realms. But when a wizard and the spirit of a gypsy set their mind to something, they get stuff done.
Summary: In a world where super-villains have to compete against each other each day to gain the respect of the Evil League of Evil and the support of the Bank of Evil, Mischievous Misha struggles with both, plus a distinctive lack of new ideas for heists. He’s been in the business for quite some time, and though his minions and his best friend Jared keep him busy just fine, it’s only when Jensen moves into the house next to Misha’s that he becomes aware there’s something more to life than being evil. What he doesn’t know is that Jensen is a villain like himself, just younger and an up and coming one, and only moved here to put Misha out of the way.
Summary: “So honey now… take me into your loving armssssssss!” Jensen sways a little to the music, “Kiss me under the light of a thousand starssssss… Place your head on my beating heart!” He closes his eyes with a grin, “I’m thinking out loud… that maybe we found love right where we are…”
A voice calls out from somewhere down the hall, “SHUT THE FUCK UP!”
Jensen turns to scowl at the source of the voice before hollering, “Hey, FUCK YOU!”
He opens his mouth to say something else but suddenly Misha’s there and he’s got a hand on the collar of his shirt as he yanks him into the room.
Summary: No matter how insignificant the question, Jensen has always craved answers. The origami birds scattered in his path are no exception - each accompanying message more obscure and more pointed than the last. As he slowly becomes the proud owner of a growing paper menagerie, Jensen has to decide whether to follow the clues or follow his heart.
Summary: Jensen is having issues. Work is getting on top on him and inside his head is not where he wants to be. So when something unexpected occurs with Misha it distracts him, but also complicates life in a way that it’s the last thing he needs. Or so he thinks.
Summary: After eight seasons of Supernatural, the writers finally decide to openly have Dean and Castiel fall in love. The only problem? Jensen and Misha fell apart when Misha left for most of season 7, and they had a hard time fixing their friendship ever since. Now it’s not only having to deal with character bleed – because Jensen starts to understand where Dean is coming from – but also with the fallout of their failed friends with benefits arrangement.
Summary: Misha has always prided himself on his mastery of the first impression - both giving and receiving. After all, people are easy enough to read if examined through the appropriate lens. For the last two years he’s stuck to his guns and his assumption that Jensen is just a good guy who made a dick mistake back when he thought Misha was disposable. Pushed him up against a trailer door and took because he could. But now, with Jared overseas with his new bride, Jensen around more than ever, and a decision weighing heavy on his conscience, Misha realizes that truly knowing Jensen might be nearly as impossible as knowing himself.

Summary: Jensen and Misha have been working together for six years but they’re only friends. Jensen’s in love with Misha and jealous of Barrowman. Misha’s in love with Jensen and thinks it’s unrequited. Barrowman helps, or tries to.
Summary: Everyone knows Jensen and Misha are together. Nobody even thinks about it. They just know. Except Jensen and Misha. They don’t know. A few things happen in the space of a few weeks that leave everyone at least knowing the same thing
Summary: Misha is sick – fucking miserable, but refuses to go home and rest instead of finishing up the last scene for the day. His own obstinacy is going to come right back and bite him in the ass and leave him in a much worse shape than he first thought. Luckily, a certain Jensen Ackles comes to his rescue.
Summary: Jensen Ackles loves his co-star Misha Collins; there is just one big problem, he married Danneel Harris and has tried to bury his attraction to Misha. Until one night at a Christmas Party at Misha’s house he gets drunk. Once something happens it can’t unhappen.
Summary: Based on a lovely, emotional prompt from earth_dragon She wrote: “Your awkward project is amazing! There’s something specific I’d like to see. There is never enough Emotional! Misha in cockles fic. I’d love to see a fic in which he’s just had a terrible, no good, very bad day/week/whatever. Nothing goes right. And by the end of it he’s just HAD IT and the last thing sets him off and he bursts into tears. Of course, neither he nor Jensen really knows what to do because it’s not really like Misha to react this, but Jen hates to see him hurting and upset.” You may not believe me but I somehow managed to make it even sadder than it seems.
Summary: Misha knew he should have checked that photo more, but now it’s too late. Not only is he having to deal with the pressures of being at a con, he is now having to see all of the hate and malice being thrown his way. He also fears how Jensen will react when he finds out, and decides to lock himself in his room with a cheap bottle of whiskey to drown his fears.
