I’ve never seen Dean look so done
Dean was just so done with everything in this episode
#then the actors ‘contemplate’ it more
Don’t watch, sweetheart
Why is no one talking about how awesome Jody was, how great the interaction between the three women was. How Jody acknowledge past grief and how she was hiding. This was an episode for the women and I loved that part.
For a show that treats women questionably time and time again, last night was very, very surprising. Not only from the compassion that was shown through all three of these women, but the sharing that theses women did.
I can’t remember if ever there have been three women on the screen at the same time on Supernatural, and I was reeling last night with how great they all were.
Hey you know what, I think it passed the Bechdel test too:
- It has to have at least two women (with names) in it,
- who talk to each other,
- about something besides a man
You know what else is great about this scene?
It was a great big FUCK YOU to the idea that to be a hunter you have to be hard.
Jody wanted to save Alex. Jody wanted to protect Alex. Jody had a dangerous creature on her knees and she took time out to be kind to Alex. Jody clocked out for a second and told Alex not to watch her surrogate mother be killed.
Jody took in a girl being hunted by vampires, and she was kind. She offered to make up a bed or a sandwich. She offered to be whatever Alex wanted/needed her to be. She offered support and understanding when the others went, “Lt’s just kill her.”
Jody is a hunter. Jody is a sheriff and a deputy. Jody saw her husband being eaten by her son.
And despite all that, Jody is not hard. She is compassionate and brave and strong and loving. She will kill if necessary. But she is still soft.
What do you think
angels do in their free time?
nothing is more accurate.
reading through this was like an episode of supernatural: I laughed, I cried, and I got pissed off at the writers.
