Live-Blogging 'Supernatural's' "There Will Be Blood"...


- Wait, is Mitch going to be back? These previously on segments always spoil the best things...

- Damn. My sugar habits are being proven as only being good for Leviathans. But I'm old and set in my ways. I guess there could be worse ways to go than being some supernatural being's snack.

- Oh kid, it's just college. Don't sell your soul for Princeton. 

- Don't sell your soul for your mom, either. She cared more about your brain and your test last week than she did about you yourself.

- Anna Nicole? Too soon, guys.

- It would be WAY too easy if Leviathans are like vampires and when you kill the original or the top dog or whatever you want to call it, the rest of them underlings just shrivel up and die, too. They're such different beings, the rules about killing them have to be different, too.

- Can dead guys get bad luck? Because Bobby (Jim Beaver) breaking a mirror can't be good. For the boys, either.

- Heh. "Officing out of the john." Cute and gross at the same time. Just like Dean's (Jensen Ackles) beloved pie being messed with by Dick. No pun or euphemism intended.

- Crowley (Mark Sheppard) is like a financier: he doesn't want to give first money. Of course, in this case, it's not really because he doesn't trust the boys can finish the job, but he doesn't trust them with his capital nonetheless. I don't know why Crowley doesn't come to Hollywood. I think he'd do well here.

- That is a poor substitute for *the* leather jacket, Dean. But I guess it fits with your poor substitute for a muscle car.

- Don't interrupt him, Dean; Sam (Jared Padalecki) is making a fantastic point about Bobby. What *are* you going to do with him?

- Dick (James Patrick Stuart) is such a fantastic metaphor for the political corruption in our government these days, but I think this "corn syrup will turn you into zombies" thing maaay be overkill. Of course, I may be majorly biased. I do love my processed sweets, after all.

- Well, they need one, Bobby. Damn, so selfish in your death state!

- Is this some kind of "Room" situation? This girl is way too old for all that pink and those stuffed animals.

- You know those bumper stickers that say douchey things like "Vegetarians taste better?" If you're into an organic lifestyle, you could have a field day with how poisonous those hopped up on corn syrup turn for supernatural beings-- at least vampires. It's the new verbane! And it's hard to be too mad at the Leviathans because of it. If they can take out other terrible beings, I want to use them to help with that. But of course, it's their drunkness on the power of being the supreme supernatural being that makes them hard to reel in. In truth, I get it. They want to wipe out anyone they consider a lesser being. They're the new Nazis.

- At least there's no corn syrup in bacon cheeseburgers, right?

- Hurricane Katrina is this guy's most recent reference? He may have been doomed before the poisoned corn syrup.

- I can't believe Dean said "Keep calm and carry on" with a straight face.

- 300 miles isn't bad-- if you know in what direction?

- DEAN AND I SHARE THE SAME BRAIN.

- Oh kid, TMZ will turn you into a zombie way faster than any corn syrup.

- She still seems too pale to be completely playing Sam and Dean. I feel like she just has Stockholm Syndrome. She really was locked away; she just doesn't remember her mother and has grown to love a few wackos as her own.

- An open door is never a good sign.

- If Bobby can do all that when he's mad, why can't he just blow open the safe door? And how is he able to even touch the buttons? He hasn't had such dexterity before!

- Oh Bobby, no... That's some demon behavior.

- I wonder how much Alpha (Rick Worthy) really believes Dick, versus just doesn't care that his lesser vampires are dying off. Survival of the fittest and all that. If he has a deal with Dick, it doesn't mean it's a deal for all of his kind. Nor do I think Dick won't sell out quite a few of his own, too.

- Why does this guy have random kids working for him? Just for the creepy factor? Because that's like quirky for quirky's sake; in the end, it just distracts you and takes you out of the real story/emotions of the scene.

- That's a little too easy. Even that little kid would have known to pat Dean down to his shoes.

- Oh damn, don't use all of your vamptonite on the underlings. Save some for the Alpha!

- Who would have guessed that vampires can't handle "your momma" references?

- Is that really it for Edgar? I'm inclined to believe not. He went down with so little fight for being such a big part (practically Dick's right-hand man) all season.

- And what exactly are Sam and Dean going to do with this little boy? They can hardly keep him around, like a mascot.

- "Next season" meta lines don't work in serious episodes like this. Especially because none of them sounded happy to say it, and intellectually you know it's because they're at opposites sides of this fight so crossing each other's paths again just means another fight, but it still made it seem like they didn't want to be back at all, in general. Lines like that work better with a wink. But no one's feeling that playful tonight.

- Dean's "Bobby" sounded a lot like Whitney Houston's right there. Too soon?

- I really don't like this. Bobby's good-bye in the episode in which he actually died was such a fitting tribute to such an important man. And yet, now the show is devolving him for just a little extra screen time with Beaver. I really don't foresee this ending in any way other than the boys having to "put him down," so to speak, and that would be a terrible way for the character to go out once and for all. It might not be this season, but it would still be bad. Maybe it would be poetic since he had to kill his own beloved one not once, but twice, but I don't think he-- nor Beaver-- deserve that treatment.
