Re: Amazing
Thank you! *Dang, I really, really need an icon for blushing ...*

I've got a few class ideas swirling around already; I just need to settle down and let the thoughts organize themselves. But I'll definitely be back soon!

and would likely play the game most subtly with the prize it most wanted to achieve. Dean’s and John’s deals had been overt and outright, predictable for someone who knew how to push their buttons.

Oooh. I like that, yes, those situations were tailored for each.

Thank you! Man, I so want to see what happens next ... it's going to be a loooong summer. Probably a good thing that my real-world job is going to be crashing busy to drag me through it ... *wry grin*

I would just like to add that i found the performance of the little girl playing Lilith amazing. This episode would not have been the same if she hadn't managed to be so scary.
Is it september yet ?

I agree - that kid did a great job!

Well, at least it's almost June ... we're getting there, counting down the days ...

Great read!

Overall I'm very happy with the episode, though I do wish they could have cut down on the amount they spent with Lilith in the house, maybe given us a scene with Bobby and one of the boys f.exa. I'm glad Show didn't take the easy way out, and actually had Dean meet his (apparant) demine at the end. I'm still suspecting Sam's abilities might have aborted his "transfer" before it was complete though, and next season will pick up right where we left of.

Thank you!

I'm dying to see where this goes when we pick up the story again. I know I'll be happy wherever we go; we're on a journey of discovery right along with the Winchesters.

Great recap and commentary Professor!

I was actually a little concerned that this episode wouldn't live up to some of the hype I'd heard..especially from Kripke about leaving us hanging all summer long. Silly me. I keep forgetting the mantra...Trust in The Kripke!

What I really loved about this episode is that it brought in bits in and pieces from all three seasons. Shades of the way the brothers interacted with each other back in Season 1, the dorky humour, massive amounts of angst, Bobby getting one up on the boys as well as the demons, Carry On Wayward Son, Dean getting beat up by a girl, Jensen (and Jared!) singing, and the brothers showing their love for each other without saying the 'L' word. This episode really had everything...even a healthy dose of Kripke-inspired gore!

Kudos to Kripke for the script, Kim Manners for the directing, and the rest of the crew from the lighting to the sound to the special effects. It goes without saying the Jensen and Jared hit it way out of the park this time. It's truly unfortunate that the awards shows tend to look down on and ignore genre shows. And I have to give props to Katie Cassidy. She really sold her transformation into Lillith.

Can't wait for your summer sessions!

I echo all your praise for the show and everyone responsible for it!

I've got a lot to play with for the summer session ... the toughest problem will be figuring out which idea to run with first!

Man, I'm fried ... time for bed now. But see you later!

I thought Jared in particular knocked it out of the park with his acting in this episode. Curiously enough, Jim Beaver said at Asylum that Jensen was couldn't stop crying on set.

I definitely agree that Jared did beautifully!

I'm not surprised in the least to hear that Jensen had a tough time emotionally with this episode. It never fails to amaze me how an actor can keep his head in the scene through take after take when he has to portray something intense - and it's hard to get more intense than facing your death after a year of expectation, and knowing that the next step is literally Hell. I'm not diminishing what Jared had to portray - I can't imagine how he dealt with portraying Sam's horror, loss, and grief at seeing his beloved brother brutally mauled to death in front of his eyes, or at having to helplessly watch that doom approach - but I'm guessing that Jared's naturally sunny nature handled it with less personal stress than Jensen's customary reserve.

All I can really say is, I would truly love to watch those two at work!
