7x06 "Slash Fiction"

I'm up to 7x06 "Slash Fiction" of the SPN rewatch I started last year, and oh my god, I remember enjoying it when it aired, but I don't remember enjoying it THIS much. I was cackling out loud at regular intervals, in the dark, in my apartment, so it's probably good I live alone now. XD

Highlights, for posterity:

- The extremely disturbing opening scene where "Sam" and "Dean" open fire on a banks'-worth of civilians in an enclosed space. DDD:

- How genuinely upset Dean is about this--he has trouble speaking--particularly in the context of having killed Amy for reasons I'm not sure he ever adequately parses for himself.

- Frank Devereaux! <333 My threatening, ultra-prepared, definitely paranoid, poor-advice-giving, prickly bb!!

- Baby in the corner. I remember this being an unpopular move in fandom, but I like sharp knives stuck in deep places. >:)

- The Sam and Dean Leviathan grumbling about how much they dislike Sam and Dean, lol. And Leviathan!Dean on burgers: "Did you know that in his heart, he thinks these are almost as good as sex?"

- Bobby and Jody totally had a Thing this episode and I completely forgot they ever had a Thing.

- Bobby and his confrontation with Nacho Cheese Leviathan, and the juxtaposition between all the sad sack things the Leviathan drudged up and Bobby's deep an unabiding interest in the poetry of Robert Browning. This is actually one of my favorite Bobby scenes in the entire show. XD (One of my other favorite Bobby scenes is a phone conversation from 7x05 where he actually doesn't have any lines--it's just Dean reacting to them. Bobby was on FIRE the first half of S7, which was great/fairly subtle set-up for 7x10.)



- The Leviathan also genuinely liking Robert Browning's poetry, lolol.

- Winchesters behind bars, which is always a plus.

- That Sheriff guy who listens in on a crazy conversation between Dean and Bobby about borax, thinks its crazy, and then LATER HAS THE PRESENCE OF MIND TO REMEMBER THE BORAX once his officers start getting eaten.

- Also, Crowley brought an entire basket of muffins to his first meet-n-greet with Dick Roman. Muffins made from baby uvulas, but guys. A BASKET. OF MUFFINS. OF AN ENTIRELY UNSARCASTIC NATURE. Amazing.
