Quick Reaction: 8x20 Pac-Man Fever

This week, I'm cat/house-sitting, so I got to watch early with the east-coast - but then I had to make dinner, because I was hungry. BUT! It also means that I have a PVR (That's DVR to you, Americans, and "-box" to you Brits... I don't know what they say in other countries, sorry folks).

Having a PVR means that I can rewatch while I type up my reaction... this way, I'm less likely to forget things. Also, I can timeline right away. It also means that probably despite watching the show early, you aren't going to see this reaction until the usual time I post it. :P

Anyway, ON WITH THE SHOW...

The teaser - so they've been starting the show in media res and then backtracking a fair bit lately, I find, but you know, I don't actually mind it. I LIKE it. It means that we get more Winchester time instead of just some random teaser death.

Okay, so SUIT!!! Or, rather, uniform!! Unf. My god, man. It's even single-breasted - usually it's only double-breasted suits that get my attention, but damn, apparently if you're Jensen Ackles, all bets are off. Did you see his WAIST?! And I'm not talking about his stomach, I'm talking about the sides of him, that spot between the ribcage and the hip on either side where you'd rest your hands while you... um... yeah, anyway... man looks good.

I love the overhead tracking shot while he's stepping over the bodies in the hallway. And yeah, did I mention he was gorgeous?

Cut to the bunker and 24 hours earlier, and we get sleepy Sammy! I love Sleepy!Sammy.

"Give me five minutes with some clippers"
"Shut-up"
- How much do I love that they actually mentioned Dean's opinion of Sam's hair? Answer: A lot! And if Dean DOES go at him with clippers, can we see that scene too please?

I love Dean throwing the beer bottle! And it just smashing in the other room. "This is why we don't have nice things, Sam" -  um, Dean, I think you don't have nice things because you THREW a beer at your brother rather than handing it to him like a civilized human being. :P

SHOOTING RANGE! Poor Sam though... he's feeling so bad that he can't even shoot straight. :(

Email from Charlie! Who is, apparently, still using a Charlie Bradbury account. I guess she figures that now that Dick's dead, she's safe to go back to her old aliases.  Also, Sam and Dean are subscribed to "Mythology Weekly" and I find that adorable. Also, possibly a website that finds and rates diners in the US. They have very narrow interests.

And we find out more mystical magic Men of Letters bunker trivia - apparently whatever warding spells are on it also keep people from tracking cellphone signals. I still wonder how Sam hooked up the wifi, but maybe they have a spell for that too. ;)

CHARLIE! I know there are probably people out there that do not like Charlie, but I am not one of them.

I love how Charlie knows there's something off with Sam right away, and you can see why, when Sam goes to hug her, he basically uses her briefly to hold himself upright. Imagine being little Charlie and having all of Sam Winchester using you as temporary support in a hug...

Also, HUGS! This episode was so full of them and it made me happy. Say what you will about The Carver, I do approve of the increase in hugs this year. I mean, yes, it makes them a less special experience - but I think it's actually a little more in keeping with NA culture... at least as I know it. We are a huggy people (at least in Canada and the US, I've never been down to Mexico, so I don't know their stance on hugging.)

Comic convention in Topeka... a likely story... and there definitely wouldn't be one mid-week. Though, hey, at least I know this is midweek. Any time information is good information!

"Holy Awesome. Too bad they got wiped out... though, that is what they get for the sexist name."
-Hahaha, I'm pretty sure Charlie is the new fan insert with this line. I love Dean's reaction to it too.

The boys are still playing Moondoor! Awesome! They are going to the "mid-year jubilee" - I'm going to go ahead and assume that's sometime in the summer.

And Charlie's been doing her research. I'm not surprised. If I found out monsters were real (and a threat), the first thing I would do is research everything I could about monsters. Knowledge is power! I like Dean's reaction though, because you can tell he doesn't like it. He wants Charlie to stay away and stay safe, which is kind of funny, because that was Sam's whole argument for getting away from hunting... oh Winchesters, I don't know if you're hypocritical or you just keep changing your mind about what "safety" actually means.

And she found the Carver Edlund books!!! I actually think this is pretty ingenious, as we see in this episode, it allows Charlie to know everything she needs to know about Sam and Dean to basically skip a bunch of steps to having a very "family" feel with them. She knows them enough to love them, even though this is only the third time she's ever actually hung out with them. On the other hand, this skips a whole bunch of "getting to know you" friendship building episodes that are always fun (and one of the main reasons I like crossovers)... but on the whole, I think it was really clever. Also, it evens the playing field later on when Dean discovers Charlie's real identity and "origin story"... Charlie already knew his, so it actually puts them back on even footing.

Also, I guess Chuck managed to get that last series of books printed posthumously, because Charlie knows that Dean and Sam saved the world.

"Sorry you have zero luck with the ladies"
-Aww, poor Sammy. He has luck with the ladies, he just... you know, has bad things happen AFTER the luck with the ladies.

"We need to find every single copy of those books and burn them"
"They're online now, so good luck with that."
- Ouch. Once it's on the internet, it's there forever. Poor boys.

SHOOTING RANGE! This time it's Charlie that has to prove herself, and she does with flying colours!

BRO SHOPPING TRIP! Seriously, Dean and Charlie is my Supernatural brotp, I think. (Along with Sam and Jody Mills). And I love Dean making Charlie a fake FBI badge while Charlie creates her own montage.

But bro shopping trips are a great time to talk about your feelings... and Dean once again confides in Charlie about his relationship with Sam, and the fact that Castiel is MIA and also can't heal Sam anyway.

"Must be nice having a brother - someone to always watch your back"
- Oh man, now I'm thinking that Charlie is LONELY and I'm back to my Benny-feelings... DEAN, ALL YOUR BROS ARE LONELY! YOU NEED TO CUDDLE MORE! (My prescription for all problems is cuddling, fyi. I once got upset and cuddled my best friend, and he politely asked if it would be rude if he continued to play Final Fantasy while I did so... I said yes - we are bros for a reason... also, possibly this is why I like the Dean/Charlie brotp, you just have to reverse the genders and you get me and my best friend.)

I like Dean's brief phone conversation with Sam, and how pissy Sam is with him when he thinks that Dean is actually calling just to check up.

I also like Sam's "close enough" when he once again fails to hit the target.

So, the Djinn-cousin/morgue-lady looks REALLY familiar. Does anyone know what she's been in? Or has she been in SPN before? Or did I meet her in Vancouver once? (Uh, I don't actually expect you to answer that last question.)

Also, the fact that she asked for their form should have told us that she was the monster. NO ONE EVER DOES THAT!

I also like the conversation that Dean has with Charlie about breaking and entering vs. hacking. The physical versus the virtual. It's interesting! Also, I love the fact that as a teenager Charlie hacked into NORAD. And I also love the fact that Dean knows the War Games reference - seriously, Sam might be the knowledge nerd, but Dean is definitely the geek of the Winchester brothers.

Gross dead body... like any kid would ACTUALLY poke a bloated corpse with a stick?! I mean, seriously!?!

(See, it only took me a half hour to get to the first commercial break... oh dear)

"Charlie, why don't you go talk to the witnesses"
"But I don't want to miss the broment."
"Charlie!"
-Hahaha, oh man, yeah, Charlie is totally the new and improved Becky... no offense to Becky, of course.

"Dean, you cannot look after the both of us. I need to be out here. Play through the pain, right?"
"Come on, don't quote me to me."
- Oh boys, you are so messed up.

"Sounds like something you should read about. In a book, at home!"
- I love how they actually HAVE A HOME. Sorry, I just had to take a moment to say that.

"Is he leaving? He's leaving!"
"It's alright. I stole your car. I think I know where he's going."
"Cool... wait, you stole my car?"
- What's not to love about being friends with the Winchesters? Haha... seriously, I love them. Also, we've come such a long way from Sam in S1 who was a little bit ashamed of stealing a car in Scarecrow.

"What took you so long?"
"I stopped for gas"
- Hehehehe...

So, Charlie heads off the coroner and the boys head off the morgue. And the body has been burned within hours... yeah, that's not suspicious. Especially if they actually thought it was an outbreak of something.

I love Charlie's coat too.

So, the Djinn off-shoot thing is... you know, I guess it's okay... I just would prefer it if it didn't seem so convenient, but then I suppose all monsters on Supernatural just so happen to be convenient.

Charlie goes off to get food and promises not to forget the pie... but, she finds out the hard way that there's a reason Sam always forgets the pie...Charlie, for some reason, stops on her way to pick up food in order to send money... *shrug* We do get to see some of her other aliases though... Christine K. Le Guin, Annie Tolkien, Susan Asimov. US, Canadian, and I think UK? aliases.

The monster is the coroner! As we learned from Amy Pond, it's the perfect cover for a monster. Really, Sam and Dean should check the backgrounds of each coroner they meet at this point. :P

So, we find out that Charlie's real last name is Middleton, and her mother is in a coma and her dad's dead... and it's been that way since she was 12?! I wonder who she lived with, she doesn't appear to have any family now. I doubt someone with Charlie's talents would let herself get lost in the foster system for very long. Poor Charlie.

"Gertude seemed like a cool mom too - kind, strong, taken from her family way too young... remind you of anybody?"
- Uh, Dean, I think you're projecting... there's no way you could get all that from a coma patient and a nurse that is not old enough to have known her much before the accident.

Also, just a small note, I doubt someone who's been in a persistent vegetative state for 20 years or so would look as healthy as Gertrude.

I love the shot though that tracks Dean through the bunker and then rests over his shoulder on that low angle towards Sam. That was kind of cool.

"My manly man friend is going to come get you..."
"Oh, let him come, he reeked of fear as well."
- Firstly, I can't decide if I love or hate Charlie calling Dean her manly man friend.. on the one hand, it's very damsel in distress, but on the other hand, it's kind of hilarious.
- Secondly, I love the fact that the Djinn smelled fear on Dean too. Because Dean is afraid, he's just better at hiding it... basically because he's been trained to hide it since he was five.

I love the fact that Dean got Sam to punch him to put him to sleep, but I just want to point out that the last time they took African Dream Root, they fell asleep instantaneously.

"Come with me if you want to live!"
- I think this makes up for any misgivings I had about the "manly man" line, because Charlie's still the badass hero, even in her recurring nightmare.

Also, I get my answers to Charlie's backstory... she stole and released a videogame when she was 12 as well, and got arrested, and has been on the run ever since. So, yeah, I'm guessing that was after her parents' death("s"). Poor Charlie.

Dean finds out that there are two Djinn and proceeds to freak the fuck out (silently and buried inside.)

Seriously, LOOK AT HIS WAIST!

"It's an infinite loop, like pac-man without level 256"
"Level what?"
- I love this line. I just read Ready Player One though, so that might have something to do with it. I recommend the book, by the way, if you like videogames and/or the 1980s.

And one of the patients in the videogame in Charlie's mind is her mother... and it's sad. And even though I have no soul, by the end of this episode I was kind of teary for Charlie, though it really didn't kick in until the very end of the episode.... because I have no soul.

The other patient is Sam. I like Charlie's line "Is this my nightmare or yours?" - but it's actually really interesting, because it means that Dean's affecting Charlie's dream.... which is something we've only seen Sam do in the past, and only deliberately, and when he did it they implied that his ability to do so might have been preternatural (even WITH the African Dream Root), but here we see Dean doing it subconsciously. This fits into my theory that Dean and Sam are actually both pretty preternaturally powerful, but Sam's powers are more conscious and visible (and demon-blood dependent sometimes), and Dean's are all subconscious and subtle.

But Sam doesn't need rescuing on the outside! He's still badass enough to get his villain monologuing while he goes in for the kill. Helps that it's a teenager, I think.

And then we get the big Dean speech about letting go that saves the day... and Charlie's horrible guilt that she accidentally killed her parents....and it's sad. Charlie just wants to tell her mom that she loves her one more time.

But Dean's speech works, and Charlie is able to defeat the dream.... and then they wake up and cuddle. SEE! CUDDLES FIX EVERYTHING! Bro-cuddles!! I also love Sam's look to Dean while he hugs Charlie, the look that clearly says, "Tell me what the fuck is going on, damn it!"

I also love how Sam calls Charlie "your highness"... I would like this trend to continue, please and thank you. Charlie must forever be their Queen.

AND THEN SAM INVITES CHARLIE TO DIG THROUGH THEIR ARCHIVES BECAUSE SHE IS A "WOMAN OF LETTERS" AND ALL OF MY DREAMS COME TRUE!!!

MORE HUGS!

Dean and Charlie goodbye...

"What about you, you going to let it go?"
"Never"
"That's my boys..."
- Ugh, I LOVE this. Because they're talking about two different things... Charlie is talking about saying goodbye to her mom and getting closure, but Dean is talking about never abandoning Sam, or never stopping to believe in him... and yeah, it's kind of perfect. I mean, for all Dean SHOULD have to be able to let go of Sam EVENTUALLY, I think even Charlie recognizes that they aren't at that place yet.

"I love you"
"I know"
HUG and KISS ON THE HEAD
- I love this. SERIOUSLY LOVE. Because this episode really isn't about letting go of the ones you love when it's their time (we had that in S3 and S7), it's actually about making sure that the people you love KNOW that you love them. That you take every opportunity to tell them, so that it never feels like it's too late.
- And I love that Charlie loves Dean, and that Dean loves Charlie... and... yeah, I just really love Charlie, you guys. I want her to be the little sister they never wanted.

And then we know that Dean learnt the lesson of the episode too, because he goes straight into the bunker and HUGS SAM!! And it's perfect, because Sam's bracing for a fight, but all he gets his a whole bunch of love being thrown at him. Oh boys....

Charlie says goodbye to her mom by reading the Hobbit... and this is the part that makes me cry, goddamn it. Even on the second watch... and the fact that it ends with "... and that means comfort." My heart, geez, it's almost as though I have one.

Next week's promo: Looks like we're definitely heading into quite the 3 episode finale arc. Next week is written by Edlund too, whom I adore.... so man, I am looking forward to it!!

So, I don't think I missed anything this week, but let me know in comments if there's anything you want to discuss more!

The perfection of this episode almost makes me forget the awfulness of the plot holes in 'Taxi Driver'--can we have Robbie Thompson and Ben Edlund write all the rest of the episodes until the end of the show in season 20? Please?

Dean hugging Sam at the end--YES!!!!

PS The line about 'that's why we don't have nice things' is something Jensen actually said to Jared at a con when Jared was talking about being clumsy.

What a fantastic review/recap. I thought they said Charlie's last name was Milton and I thought "Anna?!" but Middleton makes far more sense.

Re. Charlie knowing the boys had thwarted the Apocalypse? I don't think she needed the books for that; the world is still in one piece. ;)</p>

Again I say, great post!

Apr. 25th, 2013 05:58 am (UTC)
Haha, good point about the apocalypse. BUT, she also knew about Castiel, and when the boys met Chuck in S4, only S1-S3 had been published. So, at LEAST S4 ended up being published since then.

I'm glad you liked the post! I wasn't sure if it'd be better or worse (entertainment-wise) not working off memory.

To be fair to Kansas (my home state may suck but I do kinda love it a bit cause it is home)we just had a con in Kansas City, but to be fair again we were all pathetically excited about it.
Also unless I have mispronounced it all my life they said Salina wrong. Considering that is my ONLY complaint about this episode I think I can forgive it.
Then the ending happened and I broke down and actually cried. My dad read me The Hobbit and I miss him so much, I was having some serious projection issues with Charlie in this.

It might be one of those things where only "locals" know how to say it right. There's always a town or street or county like that in places. :P

I think the only thing that got me through that ending was reciting the opening of The Hobbit along with Charlie... although I have to confess that if they'd done what I half expected and played "Into the West" under that, or if Charlie had read any of the passages from LOTR about deaths and farewells, I would have lost it.
Wonderful episode, and all three actors just killed it. Charlie needs to just move into the Batcave now and make it a hobbit hole. And Jensen absolutely positively has GOT to do a WWII drama at some point!

Oh man! I completely forgot about the resemblance of the entrance to the batcave to a hobbit-hole! (or, at least, *I* think it resembles one). Man, I should have mentioned that... CHARLIE NEEDS TO LIVE IN THE HOBBIT-BUNKER!

nd Jensen absolutely positively has GOT to do a WWII drama at some point!

Agreed!

It's kind of interesting that they had Sam be the one to kill the teen Djinn. And this isn't the first time, Dean seems to have a harder time killing a monster when it looks like a kid or a teenager. Not that he won't do it, he just seems to find it harder to do so than Sam.
hells_half_acre
Apr. 25th, 2013 04:48 pm (UTC)
Very true. Dean has a soft spot for kids, and that translates to being hesitant to kill even monstrous kids. Sam, meanwhile, is surprisingly a little more matter-a-fact about it.

Great review as always. :)
I think you're quickly becoming a Dean/Jensen girl. So much mentioning of his slim waist. *g*

I just really love Charlie, you guys. I want her to be the little sister they never wanted.
Pretty sure she's firmly cemented her place there by now. ;)

All the hugs!!!!!!!! So much love! This has been such a huggy season, we'll be spoiled for anything less in the future.

Apr. 25th, 2013 04:47 pm (UTC)
Haha, I firmly stand by my bi-bro affiliation (and that goes for the actors too). I love them both equally. ;)

The trend with hugs definitely must continue!! And Charlie must have her place so cemented that she never dies (like Cas).

The suggestion I like is that Sam punching Dean is actually part of the dream state, a transitional phase before he hits Charlie's dream.

Yep...was not expecting this episode to slay me as much as it did. So much hugging and cuddling, and Dean and Charlie being bros forever, and then the scene with Charlie reading the Hobbit...yeah, was totally flat out crying by that point. I'm tearing up again just thinking about it.

Also, small note, but DEAN IS MAKING PLANS FOR THE FUTURE!!!! He's starting to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel!

That whole exchange, though, about Dean never letting go...I think yes, he isn't, he's still holding on to his brother, but that what he's actually let go of is his fear for Sam. Because we see at the end of the dream sequence that Charlie's mom has vanished from the patient bed, signifying to us that she's let go of her fear. But we aren't shown whether Dean's vision of Sam had disappeared. And I think we're shown the implication of Dean also letting go of his fears for his brother at the end of the episode when he tells Sam that they're both going to go look for Kevin. He's not letting go of Sam, but he has let go of the fear that Sam's going to fail, that he's too weak or too sick, and now he's trusting in Sam. It's like what he did in "Swan Song", except not in the Eleventh Hour. Dean's having FAITH, in himself and in Sam (and maybe in Cas too). That's my take on it, at least.

Also, that was a nice, subtle character development moment, when Dean decided in Charlie's dream to stop playing along with the game and refused to be a soldier, the soldier that John made him to be. Instead, he chose to do what might be considered as the "unmasculine" thing and let go, to not fight. *tears up* DEAN BABY, YOU'RE GROWING UP.

And I love that Charlie told Dean she loved him. Just...he doesn't hear that NEARLY OFTEN ENOUGH, not just straight out like that, where there's no possible misinterpretation, and just...all my creys. Charlie/Dean is truly my BROTP. I love Dean's friendships with people like Benny and Krissy and Victor Henriksen and such, but CHARLIE AND DEAN....they slay me.

So true!! I didn't even realize that, because I was too distracted by the fact that they were LARPing plans.

e's not letting go of Sam, but he has let go of the fear that Sam's going to fail, that he's too weak or too sick, and now he's trusting in Sam. It's like what he did in "Swan Song", except not in the Eleventh Hour. Dean's having FAITH, in himself and in Sam (and maybe in Cas too). That's my take on it, at least.

Well said.

Instead, he chose to do what might be considered as the "unmasculine" thing and let go, to not fight. *tears up* DEAN BABY, YOU'RE GROWING UP.

Also, well said - I completely agree and it is awesome.

Charlie/Dean is truly my BROTP. I love Dean's friendships with people like Benny and Krissy and Victor Henriksen and such, but CHARLIE AND DEAN....they slay me.

Dean has a lot of good friendships, it's true. But man, I love the dynamic between Charlie and him... I also like the fact that it's not excluding Sam. Charlie has a dynamic with Sam too that might not be as intimate (in terms of venting about his problems), but you can tell that Sam and Charlie care for each other a lot too and they're also friends. That's less common with Dean's other friendships, and I'd argue really only present with Cas. (Not including Sheriff Mills, because she's actually interacted far more with Sam than with Dean, but similar to Charlie, she's also friends with Dean)...basically, I'm saying that I think this is why their friendship seems so strong.

Does this make any sense? I feel like I'm babbling nonsense, but I am legitimately trying to say something. :P

Hey there

Loved that ep. Especially because of the pretty, but also because Charlie is awesome and because HUGS! And even one completely unexpected one - awww...

And the pretty. Did I mention that? Yeah... worth repeating.

but it's actually really interesting, because it means that Dean's affecting Charlie's dream.... which is something we've only seen Sam do in the past, and only deliberately, and when he did it they implied that his ability to do so might have been preternatural (even WITH the African Dream Root), but here we see Dean doing it subconsciously.

Hmmm, I don't really know what you're referring to, but Dean influenced Bobby's dreams when he was trapped by that... uh, monster.


Other than that: I loved this for probably the same reasons as you did. And Charlie is really cool. I like her, and she made me cry.

Yeah. Hm. Nothing more to say, actually...

Hmmm, I don't really know what you're referring to, but Dean influenced Bobby's dreams when he was trapped by that... uh, monster.

Dean didn't affect Bobby's dream - he talked to Bobby, and BOBBY affected his own dream. Then, later, in the same episode, Sam entered Dean's dream and AFFECTED it without Dean's help. He was able to conjure people into it to defeat the "monster" (who was just a powerful dude).

It was implied afterward by Bobby that Sam shouldn't have been that powerful inside someone else dream... not unless he had years of practice/power-building like the bad guy had.

Other than that: I loved this for probably the same reasons as you did. And Charlie is really cool. I like her, and she made me cry.

It was a good episode! I'm glad you liked it as much as I did. :)

I kept thinking that the coroner lady looked familiar too, but I haven't figured out from where. I don't think she was on Supernatural before though. I think it was something else.

She's not listed on IMDB for the episode (yet), so hopefully someone somewhere will eventually solve this mystery for me.

No problem! It was fun (albeit time consuming) to type up the review while I rewatched the episode. :)

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. This was the first time I wrote up the review while the episode played in the background, which is probably why it's so detailed. :)

Uh oh, as my job seems to consist primarily of ensuring that the paperwork is in order ("Do you have a 26b/6?" "Did you see the memo about the new cover sheets for the TPS reports?" etc), I guess that makes me the prime suspect in any supernatural cases. Mind you, if Dean pulled those puppy-dog eyes on me, I would likely be able to overlook his lack of the new cover sheet on the TPS reports.

Hahaha, yeah, don't worry, after working for the gov't, I'd also be like "listen, I will get into shit unless you have the right cover sheet on the TPS report." :P
