SPN 7.01

I really liked this episode.  I was pretty unsure how I would like it based on the way last season ended.  I have always had mixed feelings about Cas.  I think Misha is pretty entertaining in his own right and I have a lot of respect for all his charity work.  As for Cas, he always added an interesting dynamic when he was involved.  Season 4 Castiel was a character I didn't really warm up to very quickly.  As he started to fall in Season 5, I really liked his progress as a character.  Misha does comedy really well and Cas was used for comic relief a lot.  He was a lot of fun to watch even when he was in a serious place in the plot.  Then off to Season 6 and he was back to a character I couldn't really relate to.  At the end, I was having trouble seeing Cas as the Big Bad.  I think I've seen too much Misha gag reel and convention stuff.  I did a lot of eye rolling at the end of the last episode especially with the close-up of everyone's eyes.  After 7.01, I feel like the Big Bad as played by Misha in Cas's body has the potential to be pretty good.  Leviastiel can do more with emotion and Misha pawns that.

Maybe Cas is still in there to get control of the Leviathan.  It could be played out a lot like Swan Song with Cas jumping into purgatory with the Leviathan on board.  That's pretty close to been there, done that so I hope it gets wrapped up a different way.  I won't believe Cas's dead until I see the black wings.  

Here's some good stuff

Slow Ride is such an ironic song for the Road So Far

New exploding ectoplasm title card with the dripping goo

Dean's red plaid shirt of angst and the overshirt from the I Wuv Hugs scene

Dean's printed T-shirts calling back to earlier seasons

Dean repairing his car is always awesome

Crowley in the trailer park

Crowley's expression while he waits to be smited

Crowley, Crowley, Crowley

Death, Death, Death - everything about that whole scene

Sam not giving up on Cas and putting up with Dean

Nick!Lucifer, so cool to see him,  I was completely surprised

Here's some stuff I hope gets worked into further episodes

Dean's spiral of depression

Dean's drinking (he was drinking in four of the scenes he was in)

Sam's PTSD

More Crowley, Nick and Death

Some sort of decent resolution for Cas

I hope Dean, Sam, Bobby and Cas survive the season and go on for more.  Is it Friday yet?

Followed you over from SPN Heavymeta.

I hope we get decent resolution for Cas, but I am thinking now that maybe when we see Misha again he won't be Cas, but the leviathan leader.

Hi, I'm thinking you're right. Maybe Cas will be back in a flashback or something like that. Cas was hoping for redemption at the end and I'd really like to see him get a shot at that though. Cas is such a great character, I hate to see him have such an inglorious end. Even Jo and Ellen got to go out in a blaze of glory. The season's long though and there was surprise Crowley last year so who knows. I'm liking this season so far.
