Quick Reaction: 11x13 Love Hurts

Hello! (Just an FYI to those who read them - haven't forgotten about rewatches. I've just been busy. I'm midway through the next one and will finish up tomorow if I can).

Alright, standard rules apply - positivity, only seen the episode once, been drinking, etc, etc...

Let's do this thing...

Oh my dog, I think this is the first episode this year since the first three that I can actually put a date on. I would like to thank the writers, and Jermey Carver who accepted the pitch, for throwing me this very very small bone. I will treasure it always.

I think it's kinda telling and hilarious that the only time I yelled "GROSS!" during this episode was when the babysitter kissed the husband. I am really really not a fan of older adults kissing teenagers. Anyway, gross cheating husband is gross... SO GROSS. And I briefly wondered if the babysitter was evil, but nope. I also didn't understand why they were zooming in on the teddybear, because I didn't clue in that it was a nanny-cam. Luckily my friend did and said something out loud, because I was like "Is the Teddy Bear evil? Why is this important?"

Then we get to Sam and Dean zu hause. Dean is hungover like mad - and I love Dean's hungover shuffle around the kitchen, where you can tell he's doing that thing where he's trying to keep his head as still as possible and his torso straight so that his head doesn't pound and he doesn't get nausated (again/more). We've all been there.

It's the day after Valentine's day... I wonder how the heck Dean even got home the night before? Walk? They live in the middle of nowhere outside of Lebanon, KS. I mean, really... maybe KS has the same problem with drunk people having no other way to get home besides driving just like rural ontario does. I doubt Lebanon, KS, has uber...or even a taxi company.

Anyway, while Dean was out living it up in the city, Sam was researching...or, at least, he was that morning... Sam never actually answers the question of what he did the night before besides that he wasn't watching Fifty Shades of Grey. I think it'd be hilarious if at the end of season we find out that Sam had some sort of steady lover the whole time, and he's like "What do you mean you don't know who this is?! THEY'VE BEEN HERE ALL YEAR!" and then we see flashbacks to things like Valentine's day, with Dean out drinking and Sam having a romantic evening in... oh man... I want it to happen now.

So, Sam's found the missing-heart teenager, no doubt reported that very morning - Dean thinks it might be an ironic werewolf, which I'm all for... but we all know it's never their first guess.

So, after Dean showers, it's off to Hudson, Ohio, which is a 15 hour drive, so I'm going to guess they spend a whole day driving and didn't speak to the family until February 16th... otherwise there's no way they would have arrived when the dude still had a working day to complete. Sorry, this is timeline stuff... I'm just multitasking.

The baby's name is Tegan and they use a feminine pronoun, btw - and this led my friends and I to have a discussion about the gender of the name Teagan/Tegan/Teegan/Whatever... because I swear I grew up about five doors down from a male Tegan. But then my friend's pointed out that there was Tegan and Sarah, who are both of the lady-variety of humans. So, we decided that the name must be unisex, then we realized that the babysitters name was Stacy, which is also a unisex name... and then we decided that obviously the monster only strikes households with unisex names! Much like the Winchesters, our first guess was also wrong. :P

Dean right away picks up on the fact that the husband was having sex with the babysitter. Then we get confirmation that, indeed, the teddy bear was a nannycam... and we realize that of course the husband would take it to hide the evidence of the kiss.

Then Sam and Dean step outside and we find out that Sam picked up on the husband sleeping with the babysitter too! Or at least, he realized that he was being shifty. I love when Sam and Dean are good at their jobs.

So, they split up and Sam goes to the morgue - where nothing much interesting happens. And Dean goes to visit Husband-Dan at the office. Where Dan comes clean about taking the nanny cam and he even shows Dean the footage. We briefly debated whether this was smart or stupid of him, but then realized that he really did have an airtight alibi.

Dean takes the SD card to Sammykins. and they figure that they must be dealing with a shifter - though, shifters don't normally take hearts, so it's still super weird!

Back at Dan's office, his coworker leavs and at first I thought she might be the next victim, but then someone gets off the elevator and I could tell by the skinnyness of the shoulder and the leg that it was the babysitter.... and then it's Dan who gets killed. Awww, poor gross dude.

But don't worry, dead guy, Sam and Dean are BACK ON THE CASE. They find out that the wife knew about the babysitter - then they test her to see if she's a shifter by handing her a silver pen. Clever!

Sam and Dean take off and decide to split up once again - Sam's going to do research, and Dean's going to see if he can get laid on February 17th too.

Meanwhile, the wife is up to something! She's got a weird hex box! She's calling someone! She's treating dried herbs like weed! Who knows what's happening! Then her dead husband shows up and doesn't even knock on the door like a normal person! I mean, geez, if you're going to murder someone, at least lull them into thinking you MIGHT be human by knocking on the door like a human would. But nope... then we all yelled at the TV as the wife made no move to run away or call someone or anything, until dead-Dan got into the house.. THEN she fell over... but then we all had to bite our tongues as she did a far better job of defending herself and running away than Dan did. Though, she was obviously not as taken off guard (and far more suspicious) than Dan had been.

So, wife runs to Sam and Dean's motel - where Dean has returned after stricking out at the bar (and really? I find that hard to believe - but then it IS a random wednesday in February, I suppose.) She comes clean about buying a love-spell from her hairdresser. Her hairdresser called herself a white-witch, but Sam and Dean really hate witches you guys. The spell is sealed with a kiss. She shoes it to them, and Sam finds out that it's not a love spell but a kiss of death spell... and then they work out that it must spread by kissing an the kills work their way backwards through the chain to get to the source.

So, this is all well and good, but then dead-Dan attacks, and bullets do nothing... so Dean kisses Melissa (HA! I DID write down the wife's name eventually in my notes) and this both tests their hypothesis AND (since the hypothesis turns out to be true) it buys them a little extra time to save Melissa as the monster is now focused on killing Dean.

Sam is kinda mad about it though - he doesn't want Dean to treat himself like a guinea pig or a martyr or whatever. I mean, yeah, I get Sam's point, but I'm PRETTY sure he's being a little hypocritical, as Sam has also treated himself or Dean as a guinea pig in similar "tight spot" situations - like Route 666 and It's the Great Pumpkin Sam Winchester...though, I suppose in those cases, Sam was testing ways to kill the monster, rather than redirecting a monster to kill Dean (or himself) instead of a civilian. Though, even in that event, Sam is pretty much KNOWN for standing between monsters and civilians in situtations where the monster would have to go through Sam to get to them - Dean's just doing it in a more guaranteed to be killed first sort of way.

I'm not going to lie, the whole time they're having this conversation - I was sitting there thinking "you know, a good way to get back at Dean for that stunt would be to kiss him, Sam... come on... kiss him...." and then me and my friend started wondering what the monster would do if they just kissed back and forth... like, who would actually be at the end of the murder chain if they just made out for a really long time...

Anyway,they've run away when they have this conversation, obviously... and then Melissa sees the trunk of weapons and they have to do the Hunter reveal. She takes them to the hair salon - called "The Art of Dyeing" - hilarious - and they go on a witch hunt. They leave the wife in the car with a knife to defend herself - probably not the BEST plan, but I could see that it was the best one they had at the moment, and it DOES pan out well for Sam.

I like the fact that when Sam says he's loaded his gun with "witch killing bullets", Dean comes back with "we gotta find a better name for those" - please do, Dean, I love it when you name things. It's why I have a house-plant named Jefferson.

The monster, as it turns out, is a Qareem... who appears as your deepest desire and then steals your heart, because it doesn't have one. It's controled by whoever DOES have it's heart.

Dean says that he looks forward to it finding him, because his deepest desire is Daisy Duke - who he's had a crush on since he was 7. Sam asks whether he means the original Daisy or Jessica Simpson who played her in the more recent movie... I mean, obviously, Sam shouldn't need to ask that, because Dean's already said that the crush began in the '86... so, original for sure. But, granted, it might be the character not the actress. I never watched the Dukes of Hazzard.. though we had the dinky car from the show when I was a kid and played with it all the time (had absolutely no knowledge of what the flag on top meant, since we were raised by wolves in the vast Canadian wilderness, as is tradition.)

So, the boys have to split up to go find the heart. AND DEAN WINS AT ROCK PAPER SCISSORS! Surely, this is the first sign of the apocalypse part deux. They both do rock. Sam is shocked. They both do scissors, which is an interesting choice on Sam's part and a risky move by Dean, and then Sam does Rock again, pershaps thinking that now that Dean has remembered Scissors, he will once again return to it.... but no! Dean does Paper! Meaning that Dean didn't just deviate from scissors, he cycled through ALL OPTIONS. I don't know what this means, you guys! Up is down, black is white.

Anyway, Sam has to go upstairs, because apparently that's what losing means - the loser DOESN'T have to stay in the creepy basement. Weird.

Sam finds the heart, but before he can do anything about it, he is SET UPON BY A WITCH.

Meanwhile, the monster finds Dean, and takes the form of Amara - which, yeah, I saw that coming a mile away.... but I do look forward to seeing (though not reading) the many shipper AU fics where the monster takes the form of Cas and/or Sam. I think it'd have been a cool twist if the monster went after Sam and we got to see Sam's greatest desire. I mean, think about it, there really aren't even shipper options for that! (besides Dean, but the show's never going to go Wincest) Personally, I kinda want Sam to hook up with Eileen from a couple week's ago - I liked them together. Though, it's pretty heteronormative for the most vague Winchester when it comes to sexual preference (at least spoken/implied - though personally Sam doesn't pig my gaydar at all - even with his frequent use of neutral pronouns and open mind)

I'm so off track.

Sam's trapped with the witch instead of exploring his lack of love life or inner fantasy world. The witch is explaining how she's punishing cheating men. Sam has this line about how she's "almost a feminist" and I just cringed because I know certain fans are going to get angry about that line - but I mean, he was being sarcastic! Sigh. Anyway... the witch is just evil, because she also wants to punish the women for wanting to stay with their cheating husbands - dude, harsh, you don't know their lives! Not everyone can afford to leave their spouses and sometimes you CAN actually recover from infidelity... geez...

Meanwhile, in the basement, Fake!Amara is going on about how she can see inside Dean's heart and it's full of love cloaked in shame... and again, I thought of the destiel shippers having a field-day with that line taken out of context... but a larger part of me was like "MAYBE HE'S ASHAMED THAT HE'S BEING COERCED!" Jeez... this whole episode is full of gross sexual situations.

Dean's cool though, because he admits that the real Amara does have some sort of hold over him, but that the Qareem doesn't...so sucks to be the monster, because he can actually fight back!

Upstairs, Sam is getting force-choked. Luckily, Melissa comes to the rescue! She doesn't stab the witch, but she distracts her long enough for Sam to escape her hold and shoot her himself. Yay!  Sam stabs the heart and kills the Qareem just before it kills Dean, yay!

He then bounds downstairs and tells Dean that he took care of everything, and asks if Dean's cool. And Dean's like "yup, awesome! Nothing to see here" but meanwhile the basement is full of holes punched in pretty much every surface.

As they pack up their motel room the next morning, Sam asks if it was original Daisy or Jessica Simpson - and Dean just comes clean about EVERYTHING Amara related. Just... BRAVO DEAN! I wonder if that beats Dean's previous record of secret keeping... probably doesn't count, since I think it took Dean until the last meeting to realize the extent to which Amara controlled him.

Still, honesty is the best.

Sam isn't even surprised - and he's also awesome. He doesn't think Dean is complicit in it, weak, or evil. Sam knows that it's God's sister and that Dean is being controlled and has no choice. I mean, seriously, I "awww"ed because Sam is so understanding. Dean's experience only reinforce Sam's conclusions, because he says that when he's away from Amara, all he wants to do is kill her, but as soon as he's near her, he can't... but he balks at the idea of it being called "desire or love" because it's not that. But, Dean basically comes clean with Sam that he doesn't think he can kill her, and he apologizes for with an "sorry to do that to you" because he KNOWS that what he's saying is "you're the only one that can do this - possibly completely without my help" and I love Sam's response of "I got it, Dean" because it's just... great.

Anyway good MOTW episode. I also like how they just left a wad of cash under the cinderblock next to the broken window. Classy guests for a classy motel. :P

I loved that Dean instantly realized that the best way to protect Melissa was to kiss her and take over the curse. And sure, it puts a target on Dean, but it's not like Dean wouldn't have put himself between the threat and its victim to begin with. All it changes, is that now, Dean doesn't have to split his attention between protecting Melissa and keeping himself safe.

It's true. I'm in the process of rewatching The Executioner's Song at the moment, and that was the reason Dean gave Sam for not wanting Sam and Cas in the room with him and Cain - he didn't want to divide his attention between keeping Sam and Cas safe and fighting Cain. It makes sense that Dean would do the same thing here - keep the monster focused on himself, so that he only has to worry about defending himself.

It basically makes the fight easier on him.

the only real mistake the Winchesters made in this case was to split up. They got lucky with that one, but they really shouldn't have done so. If the witch had gone after Dean instead of Sam, he'd have been forced to deal with a situation of two against one, which would have only been resolved if Dean had had the chance to kiss the witch and focus the monster's attention on her.
But I guess they wanted Sam to have something to do as well ;-)

I enjoyed the cleverness of the case and how the boys figured it out very smartly.

Did you catch the line Dean says when he strikes out at picking up a girl when they're at the motel--he asks Sam 'what is dad bod?' (whoever he tried to pick up must have been blind...)

I also had the same flash that Sam could have kissd Dean to take the curse himself. Can you imagine what would have happened in fandom if they'd done that? Yet I could picture it in a totally gen way, Sam just doing it to get the curse off his brother because Dean pissed him off taking it from Melissa.

I was stunned when Dean threw rock in the rock-paper-scissors game and then laughed out loud at the disbelieving look on Sam's face and the stunned look on Dean's face when Dean won--but what I thought was hilarious was that it started when Sam said he'd search upstairs and Dean challenged him--and then Dean won and Sam says he's going upstairs--Dean challenged Sam for the choice to go upstairs and then was so stunned that he won that he didn't take what he'd won!

Side note, I love the long coats the boys have been wearing over their suits a lot lately. (Vancouver must be cold!) Sandymg and I were discussing how the boys' suits look so fine on them, clearly they get them tailored to fit because that would be a hunter priority :) They first got suits back in 1.04 Phantom Traveler and they were pretty shapeless, but their suits started getting more classy-looking way before they found the bunker, and of course it was a mystery how they kept the suits from being a wrinkled mess when they had to be kept in the Impala or a duffle bag! They seem to have multiple suits each and they are not getting them off the rack or at Goodwill to fit so well, especially Sam!

Also when I saw the long overcoats last night I wondered why they weren't messed up from the fight at the end of last week's episode--Dean's coat would have gotten blood splatter from beheading the janitor vamp and Sam's should have some marks or holes from being smacked with a 2x4 and Sam rolling on a dirty floor...but you've pointed out in your clothing posts how they have mad clothing cleaning-and-repair skills. I didn't look, are those overcoats included in your clothing inventory with the boys' coats? Someone (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) should inventory their suits someday...

So last episode we found out both of them had crushes on actresses in "Golden Girls" and this week that Dean crushed on Daisy Duke. Love that the writers are giving us tidbits from their past lately! Although Daisy Duke, seriously? Dean couldn't think of anyone more recent? Wonder how many younger viewers got the reference...

It was pretty obvious that the heart's desire coming for Dean would be Amara, especially after the emphasis 2 episodes ago that Mildred put on Dean 'following his heart' and that he is pining for someone...

But the best part of the whole ep was that DEAN TOLD SAM THE TRUTH! YAY! And then Sam's response was sheer awesome!!! Loved that he knew that Dean was ashamed and that Sam said it wasn't Dean choosing Amara and that Sam had Dean's back!

This has been a really good season for the writers giving us interesting stories, a meaty mytharc, and lots of great character stuff! Hoep they keep knocking it out of the park down the homestretch!

Did you catch the line Dean says when he strikes out at picking up a girl when they're at the motel--he asks Sam 'what is dad bod?' (whoever he tried to pick up must have been blind...)

Oh man... yes, DEFINITELY BLIND.

Can you imagine what would have happened in fandom if they'd done that? Yet I could picture it in a totally gen way, Sam just doing it to get the curse off his brother because Dean pissed him off taking it from Melissa.

It would have been pandemonium, even if it was filmed in the most gen way imaginable.

--and then Dean won and Sam says he's going upstairs--Dean challenged Sam for the choice to go upstairs and then was so stunned that he won that he didn't take what he'd won!

Oh my god, I had missed that entirely! HILARIOUS! Man, I love Dean.

Side note, I love the long coats the boys have been wearing over their suits a lot lately. (Vancouver must be cold!)

I love them too! It's actually been ridiculously warm this winter though - at least in my humble opinion, though you have to keep in mind that I'm an Ontario girl, so I'm used to more, well, Chicago-type winters.

but their suits started getting more classy-looking way before they found the bunker, and of course it was a mystery how they kept the suits from being a wrinkled mess when they had to be kept in the Impala or a duffle bag! They seem to have multiple suits each and they are not getting them off the rack or at Goodwill to fit so well, especially Sam!

Ah, the magic Impala, that somehow keeps suits pressed and stored in some unknown location - though, in fairness, the trunk is actually big enough that you could lay a garment bag flat in it - so it could be that's what they're doing. Still though, I do like the fact that we only really see them in these trenches and better suits now that they have the Bunker - it also makes it more believable that they'd be traveling around with less gear. Before S8, if they actually carried around their whole wardrobe, it would have absolutely filled that car. I had to headcanon that they had various storage facilities around the country where they'd switch the clothes they were carrying.

I didn't look, are those overcoats included in your clothing inventory with the boys' coats? Someone (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) should inventory their suits someday...

I didn't include the suit-coats/FBI-trenches in the Clothing Catalog, just the casual wear. I'm half tempted to include at least those trenches though, just because I love them - but I never noted down when they started wearing them and I'm not really sure I want to do an epic rewatch of the last few seasons just to figure it out. So, yeah... maybe some day, but for now I'll leave the suits/trenches for someone else to inventory. :P

Although Daisy Duke, seriously? Dean couldn't think of anyone more recent? Wonder how many younger viewers got the reference...

I had to explain it to my friend, who is OLDER THAN I AM... but that's, I think, because we are both Canadian and Dukes of Hazard just wasn't a thing up here like it was down in the States. That being said, I actually kind of LIKED the fact that Dean had such an outdated crush - and that it came from when he was 7... because it really reflect the sort of 1980s repeat-TV that was a constant back then, and how you'd end up watching MASH and Hogan's Heroes and all sorts of really old shows just repeating over and over on the most basic everybody-can-get-these channels. So, for me, I just immediately picture Dean watching fuzzy bunny-eared TVs in crappy motel rooms.

But the best part of the whole ep was that DEAN TOLD SAM THE TRUTH! YAY! And then Sam's response was sheer awesome!!!

AGREED!

This has been a really good season for the writers giving us interesting stories, a meaty mytharc, and lots of great character stuff!

Me too! The writing has been pretty damn solid this year. It's been nice!

Another episode I don’t have many comments for…it was good! The monster plot was entertaining, and I am loving this trend in increased communication!

I liked how the Previously On was basically ‘look at all the holiday episodes we’ve done before!’ and then a bunch of stuff about Amara.

Totally agreed about how skeevy the husband was.

I also didn’t get the nanny cam until they explained what it was.

All the stuff with Sam and Dean in the bunker was amazing. And I would totally be on board with Sam just quietly having a long-term relationship in the background. XD Though obviously he only met this person after he hooked up with the waitress in the backseat…still!

My first guess was that it was going to be some sort of pagan god, but I was wrong. Should’ve known…

I agree, I love it when the boys are competent.

Also agree about Dean playing guinea pig making perfect sense, and Sam being somewhat hypocritical in being mad about it. Ah, well.

That Rock Paper Scissors scene was golden.

The one thing that annoyed me about the episode was that, when Sam found the heart, he just sort of…stared at it…for like thirty seconds? He definitely was staring for long enough to stab it before the witch found him. And, like, I get that they needed to prolong the fight because Drama, but if she’d broken in before he got the lock open, or even just cut the time after he did down…IDK, minor quibble, but it bugged me. Especially because, like you pointed out earlier, this is overall very much a competence porn episode for the boys, so Sam pausing there for a moment stuck out to me…

And then the episode ended on a major up-note for me (despite Sam’s somewhat tragic face after Dean left him alone in the motel room) because communication! Dean comes clean about everything with Amara, and Sam handles the conversation in basically the best possible way and I just love that final moment at the end.

So, yeah. Much less to say this week than usual for me…but apart from that one little moment, I enjoyed it a whole lot!

Oh! Good point! If there's one thing Sam would never do, it's cheat on his long-term relationship, which he is totally having in the background... lol, the idea just amuses me to no end.

The one thing that annoyed me about the episode was that, when Sam found the heart, he just sort of…stared at it…for like thirty seconds?

Oh man! That annoyed me too! I didn't get it - at first I thought that he didn't know what to do with it or something (my friends and I may have been talking when he did his exposition spiel - but, he seemed pretty confident when he stabbed it. So, yeah, I was like "then why did you contemplate it for so long?!"

And then the episode ended on a major up-note for me (despite Sam’s somewhat tragic face after Dean left him alone in the motel room) because communication! Dean comes clean about everything with Amara, and Sam handles the conversation in basically the best possible way and I just love that final moment at the end.

Same. As for Sam's sad face, I think it's because while he is confident that he will always have Dean's back and will commit himself fully to the cause, he's probably lost a little confidence in himself after the whole Lucifer fiasco. So... it's an intimidating task, to think that it might be down to him to defeat Amara.

But yeah, the communication levels are out of this world and they make me so happy - and I think the boys are going to need that strong level of communication in order to deal with the fallout of the Casifer reveal, which is no doubt coming soon - if not next week.

This was a fun episode...and I love that Dean came clean to Sam about Amara. And Sam admitted that he knew. Oh, boys, you're growing up so much!

;)

I love the name Tegan...too bad they promptly forgot about the kid. (My first thought when it was a kissing curse was "Oh no! She left the baby with her mother...she must have given her a kiss goodbye, right? They've got to go rescue the baby!") But nope. Poor little Tegan just got dropped off with grandma, kiss-less. Probably good in the long run, but.

Did anyone else have an issue with the three actresses in this episode? I thought that the teenage babysitter, the mom, and the witch all looked remarkably alike. In fact, I wasn't sure that the witch wasn't the mom when she first attacked Sam. Maybe it's the bad non-HD cable reception on my little HD TV.

There were skeevy vibes all over the behavior of the dad and Amara in this ep. I wonder if that was intentional though. Sometimes, I think the writers don't recognize what they're writing!

Maybe it was only kisses on the lips that counted? I know a lot of parents who only ever kiss babies on the cheek or head.

I always have a hard time with white long-haired brunettes. I could tell the wife and the teenager apart because of their size difference, but that's about it.

I'm not sure if writers know what they're writing either... because yes, that whole thing was really skeevy, on really both participants' parts. :P

Yeah, I can kind of hand-wave it with 'it's the intent behind the kiss' too, but I still wondered!

I usually can focus on something that differentiates between different actresses, but in this episode, I was having a problem. I did wonder why they didn't pick at least different shades of brown. Or curly hair on one of them, or something! I'm having a similar problem on Teen Wolf with the bad-guy teen wolf pack. All the boys look alike.

Maybe it's age. :p

Great review and I was yelling when Dean finally won at Rock, Paper, Scissors..... That was great and his face was priceless! So was Sam's....

I was so happy to see Dean finally share what the problem is for him with Amara and to see Sam so accepting and not judgmental at all was fabulous, basically saying to Dean "I've got your back" and meaning it!

Looking forward to more, thank you for sharing.

The wife looks so much prettier without the red lipstick.

It bothered me how perfect Melissa's hair was the whole time. I guess the witch really is a good hairdresser.

It bothered me how all the information about the monster was in plain sight.

Amara's cleavage... still makes me cringe.

Overall a bothersome bothersome episode :) But hey - at least Sam and Dean are talking.


ETA: Yes, the cash at the end was a good touch! How considerate of them :)
