“I remember one particular day Zakk and Darrell were on the phone for seven or eight hours. I kept havin’ to bring Darrell a different phone because they kept going dead. These two were doing shots all day… long-distance drinking. The two of them just spent the whole day drinking together, doing shots, all by phone. I think to myself now, if only Darrell was here today, he would so appreciate Skype and Iphones, and the boys would enjoy things like that.” 
- Rita Haney on Zakk & Dime.

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…”

Zakk Wylde “Between Heaven and Hell” (from the album Book of Shadows)
