I think if I'm going to post caps from episodes with the car in them, I should probably do some from the episode done from the car's point of view. I liked the episode and it gave the show a chance to let us see the car in ways we don't usually get to view. The episode was written by Robbie Thompson and directed by Thomas J. Wright.

Toward the beginning, we got a great shot of the steering wheel with a nice rainbow lens flare.



The boys wash the car and we got to look up through the soapy windows at them.











We got shots of the boys riding in the car that are a bit different from what we usually see.



More lens flare and the chance to really see that with both Winchesters in the front seat, there's not a lot more room.



Plus we got to see how they manage to sleep in the car.



There were more shots looking in the rearview mirror.





Great inclusion of the green cooler.



A gory look at how big the front seat is and the lower part of the steering wheel.



I really like this one with the sun just coming up outside the roadhouse as seen from the backseat.



And the driver picking the music. This is the tape from Swan Song but I'm not sure if they used the older footage or just reused the cassette tape.



Then they head back to the Bunker but like Sam says, they are already home.



All caps are from Home of the Nutty.

Car porn: the episode. Love it so much. I love the opening shots, with the rattling aircon (from the Legos), and the initials carved, and the army man. Brilliant.

I'm so glad they did it. It was fun to go back and look at it. Now I need to do a full rewatch.

There were more shots looking in the rearview mirror.

Those really look like the Impala was looking at her boys!

I haven't seen this episode btw. Was it really done from the Impala's POV? That sounds awesome. Makes me want to go watch it :)

The Impala looking at her boys is a great way to think of it. The episode was a lot of fun. Not too much myth arc, so if you aren't up to date, it won't really matter. If you have some spare time, I'd give it a watch. Some of it is sweet and some of it is pretty funny. Plus you get to see the car and the boys in ways that we don't usually see.

This episode was a total love letter to the fans and the car! ♥ I love the scene with the boys washing the car - the POV makes it look like Baby's watching them. :) Getting all those unusual camera angles is such a treat as she has no corner that doesn't look pretty.

I think that the footage of the cassette tape is reused.

(I just had a big bunch of your Baby50 posts show up on my DW and I realized that I had missed some of them at LJ for some reason.)

This episode was great for all the unique angles they used. And yeah a lot of the footage gives you the feeling that she's watching them or watching over them, especially the sleeping scene.

I haven't figured out how to crosspost but I didn't want to import my lj journal over on top of the coding changes I've made to some entries so they work with dw so I did a cut and paste on the entries and I tried to post them with the right date but I have no idea how they came up in the reading list. I don't think my season 1 entry showed up on anyone's journal here on lj. It's all a mystery. 8-)

Cross-posting is pretty simple to set up and the DW FAQ is helpful. You just add your LJ account details in the account settings and you can also specify if you want to automatically cross-post all entries and if you want to have a link to the cross-posted LJ entry in the DW post, but that's pretty much all you need to do settings-wise.

I saw a comment in a DW_maintenance post that the DW reading page is populated based on what time the posts were registered on the DW servers instead of the timestamp set on the post. I didn't know about this before either. :)

I realized I couldn't remember my LJ password and that's what hung it up. I'll try it again.
