Last night's Supernatural was sure interesting. Lots of myth-arc expansion for Kripke, some discovery of the Colt's limitations (Uh-oh), and a capable actress doing a demon for a change! I haven't liked the female demons thus far-- trying too hard to be sexy, so much so that the line readings suffer at times. I loved the YED, in all his deranged game-show host sinister glory (that cracktastic combination was unexpected, but also irresistible). Last night, we finally got someone who was strong, smart, and unforgiving... but not coy or leaning on the sex-siren approach. (Obviously, I'm not talking about Ruby here).
I'm getting a little unnerved at the change in Sam's behavior, because it amounts to the loss of his part of his humanity, and that humanity was what made him uniquely Sam and not some other random guy. I like that Dean's somewhat pained by that. I'm not sure I like the suggestion that Sam SHOULD become more that way, and I really don't like the idea of Dean being gone after Season 3. (Standard warning: Don't spoil me and I won't spoil you! Thanks.)
If it weren't for my utter mistrust of the CW network suits and the way they keep trying to influence the direction of the show, I would have found Ruby's backstory simply interesting instead of also fearing that she and Dean might eventually 'bond' as a means of finally getting him to have sex with one of the blond chicks that keeps turning up.
Also, while I admire the irony of what's in Dean's future (he'll finally understand what Gordon felt while being 'turned'), and I wibble over yet another angst opportunity for him... I'm glad one of those anvils didn't get me in the head.
Loose question: why did the coven demon decide to kill off the first witch at that specific time? I mean, other than it moving the plot forward?
Lost: Dangit, I got so excited over the new Supernatural that I forgot the premier of "Lost" was happening at the same time! Worse yet, I spent time on Wednesday watching what was essentially a rehash but with really annoying text boxes underneath the scenes supposedly 'explaining' the action. And now I have a point of confusion: in last season's finale, Kate asks Jack why he's telling her something about Sawyer that's essentially good. I heard his response-- this week and last May-- as "Because I love him." Which made my slasher heart zing, and on the intellectual level was "Monkey wrench! Yes!" But the text box below had some blurb about "Jack and Kate lovers rejoice at this exchange. Though the Sawyer/Kate lovers are less happy." And I thought, "What? Jack didn't say he loved her. Did he? Because I heard it differently two times."
So what's the scoop?
