Also sad? The complete lack of hot gay incest in this episode. Fic taught me that boys telling the truth always ends in a lot of porn. Not bloody, mushed faces. Well, sometimes bloody faces too, but that's often a by-product of the porn.
I loved that Lisa dumped Dean for shoving Ben. She was willing to put up with a lot for Dean, but her son still comes first, and I really love that.
Also, I kinda liked that Bobby said Dean was his favorite, because Dean needs to be someone's favorite. Sam has always known he is the center of the world. As someone at the Show panel at wincon put it (gigglingkat?) "The sky is blue, the grass is green, and Dean loves me." Sam does not question it, and sees no need to. Dean, on the other hand, would not be Dean without his amazing lack of self-worth. And Bobby is too smart not to know that.
Sam's confession there at the end, HMOG. SAMMY. I wanted to hug him, but it would probably be awkward since right now he is more sociopathic than Dexter. What I find really neat, and totally awesome on Jared's part, is that Sam has shown that he can fake emotion when he needs to—his main problem is that until he's called out on it he doesn't remember/realize that he should be acting differently than he is.
Also, even though I saw Veritas on Sam;s computer in the Soon from before, when they started mentioning the horns I got all excited thinking it was gonna be Pan, or Pan's pipes or something. And then I was so excited about Gabriel's horn, because of course Gabriel's horn is gonna give people ALL of the truth ever. Or, as waterofthemoon puts it, "(this would be when he pops in and says, "hellooooo, TRICKSTER.")"
Veritas the Goddess wasn't bad for a MotW, but we all know it wasn't about her this week. I loved her throwing the boys into her half-eaten torso, though.
OH, SPEAKING OF GROSS THINGS. I watch the show at least twice every week, once on the East Coast live feed, and then again two hours later when it airs live here. The first time I totally covered my eyes through the dentist's scene because I was terrified he was gonna start ripping out the dude's teeth and I would not have been able to handle it. But I could watch it fine the second time because I knew he "just" drilled through arteries and got a blood bath. Also, I totally cheered for the doctor for killing that dude. Guy had it coming. (And I feel bad for the poor waitress at the beginning.)
I love Bobby's TMI, BTW. And the random creepy little girl at the beginning who wanted to burn her mother? Hilarious in a "GOD, WRITERS, KIDS REALLY CREEP YOU OUT, HUH?" way.
Spoilers for the promo only: [BY THIS TIME NEXT WEEK CASTIEL WILL HAVE CANONICALLY FISTED SAM. Also, I'm thinking Sam bought his way out with his soul and doesn't remember it. I mean, come on, if he were already in hell? He would sell his soul to get out, especially if he thought he could break the deal before it came due. Wouldn't really count on anyone to keep it right then.]
OKAY, SO I GOT KIND OF RAMBLY AND PROBABLY FORGOT A LOT. BUT IT IS LATE AND I'M TIRED. wave_obscura, I AM NOT GONNA HIT POST ON YOUR COMMENTFIC UNTIL THE MORNING. Trust me, you don't want tired!fic from me. It's not pretty.
