So after complaining a lot, finally an episode that I thoroughly enjoyed watching. Everything was just perfect in this episode. Can't say it enough, totally loved it!!
The beginning and the ending clearly showed the ice between Dean and Sam thawing. FINALLY
!! About time. Dean was concerned in the beginning.. When asked Sam, "You okay?" I was reminded of the good old days when the brothers felt what the other was feeling. Their relationship is beginning to resemble normalcy. And I couldn't stop smiling when Sam said in the end, "You're right. Having fun won't help me. It'll help both of us." Sam saw how much Dean was enjoying LARPing so he decided to join him so the boys could enjoy together. This is the Sam and Dean, the brothers, we've loved for 8 years. And notice Dean's expression there... he was obviously totally ecstatic but then suddenly he's like "Yeah, sure, I'm doing it for you only "
It was a unique concept and the episode kinda had a light undertone.. Especially with Charlie around or maybe because Sam and Dean are trying to, in Cas's words, stow their crap.
I couldn't stop laughing at Dean's expressions throughout the episode. Hilarious!! Totally cracked me up. Anyone noticed that he has these small reactions to everything
that's going on? Even when he's in the side shot, you can see him responding to what's going on. Like when that guy drops his dentures and the other guy picks 'em up and gives 'em back to him. Dean moves his lips weirdly. Jensen Ackles is one brilliant actor. Hats off to him.
Felicia Day as Charlie was as refreshing as she was in the episode she first appeared in. Charlie has a certain spark to her personality - loved her. Loved the way Dean was bonding with her.. really like "the little sister he never wanted."
He actually shared everything with Charlie. Can you imagine that?? DEAN sharing ANYTHING with ANYONE?!
Loved that Charlie told him on his face that that was a 'dick move' and Dean agrees but you also see his point of view. In this line of work, attachments are not good.
"Call me, maybe?" Hahaha... I totally cracked up at that line of Charlie's. First because that was so Charlie. I personally am not a big fan of that song
But it fit perfectly in the situation
But my favorite scene has to be when Sam and Dean meet Charlie in the tent. You could see how alike Dean and Charlie were. The way Dean gives her advice on her army and the thing about the poison
AND the ending was, of course, EPIC!!!!
Charlie: Isn't that the speech from...?
Sam: It's the only one he knows.
5/5 - Loved the episode! It was just as much fun as I was expecting it to be.
