In case you were wondering, the titles of the Fast franchise go like this:
The Fast and the Furious
2 Fast 2 Furious
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
Fast and Furious
Fast and Furious 6 (it tried to call itself Furious 6, but NO ONE calls it that)
Furious 7 (because if at first you don't succeed, try, try again!)
And now, THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS.
And all I can think of is furious fates, like these ladies:
I haven't seen 12x07 yet, and all I know about 12x08 is the title: "Lotus."
Which, thanks to Fast, which has got me thinking about Greco-Roman mythology transported onto a kitschy, modern-day American setting, I can only connect "Lotus" to the Lotus Eaters, because they appear in the first Percy Jackson movie, in Las Vegas. And since the villain in that movie is played by the kid who plays Adam/Michael, this can only mean that the Las Vegas Lotus Eaters are involved somehow in Supernatural as well. It probably has something to do with Michael in the Cage and Lucifer not in the Cage.
In the Percy Jackson movie, the gate to Hell is in the "H" of the Hollywood sign.
As part of my dissertation, I just spent the morning brushing up on the Hollywood blacklist and the House UnAmerican Activities committee during the late 1940s through the 1950s. This involved sniffing out, in Red Scare style, Communism in the movie industry. Some of these activities were led by Walt Disney and Ronald Reagan.
Disney connects back to Furious Fates (that GIF is from Disney's Hercules, for those who didn't recognize it), and Reagan connects back to Hollywood, California politics, and ultimately the presidency. Also, a Republican Presidency where both the US House and Senate were also Republican-controlled, just as these posts will be, come January 20 (if you can call Trump Republican--he may be doing kind of his own thing, given his relationship with the RNC).
Therefore, as proven by the Fast 8 movie title and the fact that Jake Abel is in both Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief and Supernatural, "Lotus" is a reference to the Lotus Eaters, and somehow the episode will feature Communism and the Red Scare and the House Un-American Activities Committee and also the President, because Mark Sheppard played that FBI agent (or something) in Doctor Who that one time, and I'm pretty sure both the US President and Hitler were involved in that episode. And the British Men of Letters, are--idk, but they're related to all this somehow.
In Percy Jackson, Percy Jackson's father is Zeus, who's played by Sean Bean, who is British. Therefore, Sean Bean is in the BMoL and so is Zeus, and he has some hand in the business of the Lous Eaters, somehow. That's how they're involved!
THERE. TAH DAH.
IT ALL COMES FULL CIRCLE.
I could probably make a killing as an Illuminati conspiracist. XD
