While I’m busy cackling at Dean’s most-awesome John McClain shout-out, we switch to Cas and Bobby and Cas is totally powering up and glowing from the power of Bobby’s soul. Switching back to Sunrise, Sam hurries around the corner, yelling, “Dean! The ashes!”
Dean drops the Colt, grabs a bottle out of his pocket and they run for the pile of ashes…only to end up skidding to an empty-handed halt in Bobby’s living room. I think I may have startled my dog with my cry of, “oh, NO!”
I do want to say that I loved how they had Dean drop the Colt in the dust—leaving us to assume that Elkins picked it up and kept it for his descendant, Daniel, who would ultimately befriend one John Winchester. It makes John’s grudging, “Son of a bitch had it this whole time,” comment even more powerful.
Also? I love that in Colt’s journal he’d written, “The gun killed a Phoenix…” Not that he had killed a Phoenix. Meaning, Dean didn’t change history by being the one to do it. Dean had been history. I like that a lot.
Anyway back at Bobby’s, Dean’s wrecked that they went through all of that and came back empty handed. He wants Cas to send them back.
Sam (looking as done-in as his brother): Dean, look at him. He’s fried.
Cas: I never want to do that again.
Dean looks worriedly over at Bobby.
Bobby: Still kickin’, Annie Oakley. But you’re back…good as new.
Dean (totally dejected): We screwed the pooch. Bobby…I’m sorry.
And then, there’s a knock at the door. As soon as Sam opened the door to reveal a mailman, I knew what they were going to do. *grins*
Mailman: Is there a Sam Winchester here?
Sam: Who’s asking?
MM: Me and a couple guys made a bet…so, this package has been laying around the offices since…ever. With a note on it to bring it here. Today. From a…Samuel Colt?
Loved this shout out to Back to the Future II. Nicely played.
Sam’s all yougottabekiddingme…. He takes it and hurries back into the room to open it in front of everyone. Inside is his cell phone (heh) and a note that says, “Dear Sam. I got this address and date off your…thingamajig…and I thought the enclosed might come in handy. Regards, Samuel Colt.”
And of course, it’s a bottle full of Phoenix Ashes.
Now, forget that it’s pretty much a miracle that Samuel Colt was able to figure out how to get anything off of Sam’s magic brick. That’s pretty cool. And now they have the ashes they need to go up against the Mother of All. Which they need to do soon, since there are only 4 episodes left.
Dean: You know what this means?
Bobby: Yeah. I didn’t get a soulonoscopy for nothing.
Dean (closes his eyes with a pained expression): Yes. And. (His look takes them all in.) We take the fight to her.
And then he puts his hat on, tugging briefly on the brim. And grins.
Oh. My. I love our show. This was so much fun. And I’m pretty sure this is officially the longest ramble I’ve written this season. Next week’s previews look harrowing and very Mother of All-centric, but I hope we don’t lose the thread of what’s going on with Cas. We’re getting close to answers…so, so close.
Thanks again for reading. I hope you enjoyed. See you next week. Slainte
