The Best Episode Ever.

8x18 "Freaks and Geeks" is quite possibly my favorite episode this season. From what I'd seen from fandom when it first aired I was gearing up for something boring and mostly stupid (LIKE 8x16 "Remember the Titans" :FFFFFFFF) but this was so good in so many ways. More on that when I finish out the season, maybe. I've been quarantined from the Internet because I want to avoid finale spoilers at all costs, so I need to watch as quickly as possible. XD I watched 8x16 and 8x17 on Tuesday morning; I adored 8x17 as well--there was a full segment of that episode that was actually exquisitely paced; the tension was palpable and real and just wow. SPN is never well-paced. Except apparently it can be!

My drive-by notes:

8x16 was extremely poorly executed on all fronts, sweet baby jesus.
8x18 made me question some of my core-est beliefs as a SPN fan, in good ways.
Rachel Miner will always be my favorite.
But then, Madison McLaughlin. J'adore.
Oh my god, I just had a terrifying epiphany but I lack the coherence to articulate it at this moment. I may need to add a Big Bang scene for all these feelings.

4 episodes and the finale to go...
