But there are always exceptions, late-game explosions of compulsively necessary rewatch material. 5x16 was one; and 6x19. 8x20. 10x19. And 10x21, because I absolutely love everything about that episode. I loved its beats, the camera framing, the character stuff, interactions new and old, everyone's acting A-game, the tension, the way the baroque spectacle of the Stynes played against the bare starkness of that final scene (pushing SPN's dealings in both genres and aesthetics to a whole new intensity of encounter)--everything. I loved everything. ♥
Sorry guys, this one was written for me.
Bring on 10x22! \O/ [& please help keep this journal a spoiler-free zone!]
