That cute little wink though (◠ω◠✿)
Shout out for Jodi Mills for single-handedly being the only female representation Supernatural has these days. It’s tough work but she does it impeccably.
And that is all I’m going to say about 9.19.
DEAN YOU LITTLE BITCH
Did you miss the part where he said “Same circumstances” hearkening to months of gaslighting and a history of mental illness and glaring consent issues?
Did you miss the Trials, when he would rather die than disappoint you again?
Did you miss all the times he has saved your life, and the reason you still hunt with him?
Did you miss the part where he went to Hell to save you and the rest of the planet?
Did you miss the part where he came back to the hunt for you after every time he tried to leave?
Same circumstances, you stupid little shit. These weren’t even remotely similar. And Sam is so much better than you that he doesn’t say a word, just takes your hate and sets it aside because he thinks you’re under the influence of the Mark.
Because for some reason, Sam still has nearly unlimited and unwavering faith in you.
God knows you don’t deserve it.
Here it is! Enjoy.
(and 9.18 is up as well)
ACCIDENTALLY GROWS REALLY ATTACHED TO A STORY I’LL NEVER WRITE
You wash up on a deserted island alone. Sitting on the sand is a box. What is in that box? Just say the first answer that comes into your mind.
This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.
Because wow, that was patronizing.
I loved that scene in Elementary.
1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.
2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.
3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”
You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.
I had my boyfriend who smokes use matches for a few days instead of a lighter and record the date and time and whatever he was thinking about while smoking.
It’s funny that he quit smoking a few weeks after this project.
Tomorrow night Jody Mills returns to Supernatural!
We’ve done a lot this season to support Cas, and there’s always ongoing support for the brothers, but I feel like Jody Mills deserves a twitter event just for her.
Why? Well, first off, on a show with a pretty poor track record for female characters Jody has survived since season 5, which is amazing in and of itself.
But also, she’s a total BAMF. Last time we saw her she got stabbed while tied to a table, managed to escape her bindings, pulled the stake out of her own body, and killed a Goddess.
Hell, the first time we saw her, in the aftermath of losing her son and her husband, she helped fight off a hoard of zombies.
Like, really, is there anything Sheriff Mills can’t do?
And that’s not even getting into how incredible Kim Rhodes, the actress who plays her, is.
So if you’re on twitter, tomorrow night join me in trying to trend #HunterJody
Let’s show @kimrhodes4real and the Supernatural PTB just how much we love our badass lady sheriff!
Gettin sick of that false equality mindset that’s flying around.
Finally, a comic I’d get behind!
Dean’s violation of Sam wasn’t a split-second, whoopsie, decision. It was a continuous, methodical violation that started when Dean chose the option of not letting Sam make the choice for himself (and I stress option because Gadreel gave the semblance of being willing…
I think the issue a lot of people are having is they’re capable of admitting certain behaviors are abusive, but the shy away from the word abuser.
"But…he’s so nice, he loves him, he does good things, that’s not all he is”
But nothing. Using abusive behaviors makes someone an abuser.
