Supernatural 5x10 'Abandon All Hope'  
.... because of course, 'before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure, abandon all hope ye who enter here'.

Did I say that I LOVE that they stole the title from Dante's Inferno? Now I'm nostalgic of my high school days when I'd do that. *sigh* Well, hey, I always said Italian literature > you, at least until the 70s.

1. Okay, so, this show is becoming Good Omens, but I'm not caring much. Maybe I just like the idea of everything being a huge, huge crossover.

2. That said, Crowley is my new love. Apart from being taken straaaight from the book complete with looks, intelligence, English accent, making deals on highways, fancy house and not wanting to help the devil, HE GOT ME SOME GAY ACTION. WELL, FINE, THE DUDE WASN'T EXACTLY WHAT I'D HAVE GONE FORE BUT STILL. Also I <33 that he totally pwned Sam when he was like 'maybe you need ammo' and that he was like MORONS!!! all the time.

2b. Which brings me to, THERE NEEDS TO BE BOBBY AND CROWLEY FIC ASAP WHERE BOBBY CALLS THEM IDJTS AND CROWLEY CALLS THEM MORONS. If no one writes it I fucking will, sometime in the next four centuries.

3. SAM ALWAYS SAY NO TO LUCIFER.

4. And Dean will always be awesome. Lame pick up lines included.

5. CASTIEL HAVING THE DRINKING CONTEST WITH ELLEN AND JO = NEW FAVORITE SCENE LIKE EVER. AND HE DOESN'T EVEN GET DRUNK. HE DOESN'T EVEN GET DRUNK. AND WITH THAT ADORABLE FACE OMG.

6. Also he's a total voyeur. When he spied on Crowley and telling Dean at the phone, omglol a+++++++. And hanging out with Jo and Ellen, awww.

7. Bobby wasn't in there much but he was awesome.

Except when he burned the picture at the end. WHAT THE FUCK. WHY.

8. Picture talking: I teared up. I <333 it from Bobby saying they were drinking his beer so just shut the fuck up to Cas' face and Dean's face and everything else and just, ;______________;. Though one would believe that Bobby would have a color camera... or maybe not.

9. Okay, I'm totally dancing around this, but. The only thing I have to say about the deaths is:

;_________________________________;

Because. Really. Jo never was my favorite character but I liked her just fine and Ellen was my favorite female character and I ♥ed them both and THEY KILLED THEM AND I WAS CRYING DAMMIT. But then they did it in such a poignant way and... hi. Hear my heart being ripped out into tiny little pieces. I just... if I read some bashing Jo comment I swear I'll flip. I. Will. Flip. When Ellen stayed with her and Jo was like 'treat me like an adult for once' I... just... ;_________; and while I never shipped Dean/Jo THOSE TWO KISSES KILLED ME. THE FOREHEAD ONE ESPECIALLY BUT the second too. Jesus. ;____________; and at least they went out in a badass way. But. Still. ;_________; now all the Roadhouse crew is dead and I'm.. like.. no. Argh, I loved the Roadhouse.

Whatever. Let's go on before I start bawling again and end up late for the only class I have.

10. Mark Pellegrino, be Lucifer forever and ever. Amen. I love how he's being gentle and alien and evil as fuck all at once and that he digs on his own and that he doesn't really have minions and then in the end he'll just screw them all. Also poor Nick, he's falling apart. Aw. ;__;

11. DEAR CASTIEL, BE EVEN MORE HOT GETTING TRAPPED IN RINGS OF FIRE MOAR OFTEN.

Duh. I. Died. I loved their confrontation and I loved the tones of it and that they were sorta speaking at an even level and _izu_ and lasamy can confirm that I totally called the whole thing he put on Meg. I loved that he was obvs. scared in the beginning but then got calmer and then he totally pwned Meg. I don't like that he can't burn demons out anymore though, the more power he loses the more he gets close to f!Cas, but THEN HE USED MEG AS A BRIDGE AND I SQUEED.

Er. See. The actress playing Meg in S1 had the same face of a friend of mine. Trufax. So for me Meg = MAJOR CREEPS and sincerely even if she changed her face I never was too attached to the character so CAS PWNING HER AND USING HER AS A BRIDGE HAD ME SQUEEING. Sorry. I swear I usually am more objective and she was an awesome character. She just crept me out for years.

12. Cas doing the catwalk = why not moar often, show? Just sayin'.

13. Also Dean, if you call him huggy teddy bear, CAN SOMEONE GIVE THE ANGEL A HUG ONE OF THESE YEARS? Thanks.

14. I think I need to re-watch it because I'm sure I missed a hell of a lot of stuff while flailing and sobbing my eyes out, but still. Loved it. Even if Ben Edlund = evil. Can he and Jeremy Carver write an ep together? Y/y?

15. I realizes I barely said anything about Dean and Sam which I guess is weird but this ep I just felt like everyone else was getting the spotlight, y'know? I mean. I lovedlovedloved their exchange at Bobby's with the beer and the ending scene with Lucifer and pretty much everything else they did (including being totally pwned by Crowley lololol win) but I just felt like the focus was more on Jo/Ellen/Lucifer/sort-of-Cas this round, so I probably would have more to say if I re-watched it.

16. Also when Bobby was like 'battle of Carthage' I was like 'when did this show became about ancient history?' and then I realized that it was a Carthage in the US. *headdesk*

17. Okay, I answered some reviews. Now I'll be running to class because it's the one where if you don't get there an hour before you don't get to sit, then I'll get back and answer the other reviews and watch my vampire porn. Which is going on hiatus too. WHAT WILL I DO WITHOUT THE VAMPIRE PORN AND SPN. Maybe catch up on other shows, duh.

Did I already say that quoting Dante = win? ;)

Ugh! I so fail for taking so long to get back to this, sorry about that hun. :)

Nice to know you're not gonna flip on me, for that. Ugh, that's kinda sucky way to act about things, I might not of cared for Jo or Dean/Jo at all, but I wouldn't go so far as to say something like that. It's pretty ridiculous, so I get why you'd be frustrated.

To be honest, I kinda like how they brought her back and actually made her death count for something, instead of just being anothe random horrible thing happening in the world. If they would have kept her around for a few more eps, I might have actually liked this version of her. My main dislike of the character, was how under-developed that she was and the fact that a certain portion of fandom was trying to shove the whole Dean/Jo chemistry don't you see there you're blind if you don't, on those of us who just really didn't care for that. And, they were getting mad at the slashers for saying they didn't like Jo, because they thought we were just being petty when some of us had actual valid reasons for not liking the character aside from being so damn shallow. lol.

Ugh, there's nothing I hate worse than gratuitous bashing. That sucks the worst, I'm sorry that you had to put up with that.

Yeah, I think you're right about that. :)
