Awesome Sam POV (for the 2nd ep in a row is like heaven to this poorly neglected Sam!girl) and Sam talking about how scared and helpless he feels. And Sam's still depressed and in that dark, hopeless state but even worse now. Love that it wasn't just forgotten!! I loves me some (or lots) of Sam!angst!! And the connection he and Rowena now have, both terrified of Lucifer.
Sam: Even if you do get the book, and even if you get your power back, it won't matter. You won't ever be able to change what happened. You won't be able to change how helpless you felt, or how helpless you feel. You're still gonna get scared. And that feeling that feeling never goes away.
Bring on the tears!!! Once again, Jared gave a brilliant performance. I'm so glad the writers are finally letting us see and feel the hell that Sam is going through. It's been way way way overdue and I hope it continues for the rest of the season and beyond.
And oh God that scene with Dean at the end, I teared up big time!! Again!!! All I wanna do is hug him and never let him go!!
Sam: I know what Rowena is dealing with. And she's not the only one who feels helpless.
Dean: What do you mean?
Sam: I mean, I had a plan, you know. I, uh Help Jack, um, bring Mom back. It wasn't much, but it was something. It -- it kept me from spinning off the rails. A-and now Jack is gone, Mom is still in Hell, basically, a-and I-I-I just.
Dean: We'll figure it out.
Sam: Dean, we don't have a plan. We don't know what to do. So -- so how?
Don't mind me. I'm just a sobbing mess right now!!
And they remembered Sam being hexed by Becky!!! Continuity for the win!!!
And I loved seeing Lucifer again and he was awesome and snarky and ruthless... just how I love him. And even Cas didn't annoy me, so that's a win too!! But I swear to Chuck, if Cas has killed Lucifer, then I'm gonna be so so mad!!! I'm loving having Mark back on the show and am not ready for him (and his Lucifer) to be gone again.
The only thing that didn't sit well with me was love-struck Dean punching Sam and later almost strangling him into unconsciousness. In fact it kind of pissed me off!! But then it is in Dean's character to react with violence to get what he wants, perhaps the love hex just amplified it. But seeing Sam struggling for breath took me right back to Red Meat and *THAT* scene and then I was calling Dean every swear word under the sun!!!
