"Supernatural" Catch Up Marathon: 6x10
Updated: Jun 6, 2020
Season 6, Episode 10: Caged Heat.
Needs Less Meg.
SAM: Cas, we found something. It's this gold box. Apparently Nazis were after it back in the day. Someone tried to open it and their face melted off. I think its the - ready for this - the Arc of the Convenant.
CASTIEL: I'm here Sam. Where's the box?
SAM: I can't believe you fell for that. That was the plot of "Raiders", idiot.
Souless Sam is fun! Good thinking, using "Raiders of the Lost Arc" to trick Cas into thinking they found one of Heaven's lost weapons. XD
Cas, there's a lesson to be learned: next date night with Dean, go see a movie.
SAM: If you don’t help us, I will hunt you down and kill you.
CASTIEL: *swaggers up to Sam with an amused look* Will you, boy? How?
Cas! You are BAD ASS!! <3
Oh my god. The pizza man scene was AMAZING!
CASTIEL: It’s very complex.
CASTIEL: If the pizza man truly loves this babysitter, why does he keep slapping her rear? Perhaps she’s done something wrong.
DEAN: You’re watching porn? Why?
CASTIEL: It was there.
DEAN: You don’t watch porn in a room full of dudes. And you don’t talk about it. Just turn it off.
DEAN: Well, now he’s got a boner.
SAMUEL: This what you boys do, sit around watching pornos with angels?
CASTIEL: We’re not supposed to talk about it.
CASTIEL: I’m ambivalent about what we’re attempting.
DEAN: Well, breaking into monster Gitmo is not exactly a two-for-one in the champagne room.
CASTIEL: I’m not sure retrieving Sam’s soul is wise.
DEAN: Wait, what? Why?
CASTIEL: I want him to survive.
DEAN: What are you talking about?
CASTIEL: Sam’s soul has been locked in the cage with Michael and Lucifer for more than a year. And they have nothing to do but take their frustrations out on him. You understand? If we try to force that mutilated thing down Sam’s gullet, we have no idea what will happen. It could be catastrophic.
DEAN: You mean he dies.
CASTIEL: I mean, he doesn’t. Paralysis. Insanity. Psychic pain so profound that he’s locked inside himself for the rest of his life.
DEAN: But you’re saying you don’t know anything for sure. I mean, he could be fine.
CASTIEL: He could be, yes.
DEAN: Okay then.
CASTIEL: But I sincerely doubt it.
DEAN: Well, if he’s not fine, then you fix him.
CASTIEL: Dean, I wouldn’t know where to begin.
DEAN: Then you figure it out, Cas. Come on. I mean, the guy’s a frigging replicant. He needs his soul. Look, we get it back. And if there are complications, then we will figure out a way to deal with those, too.
CASTIEL: Of course… Or we fail, and Sam suffers horrifically.
Oh, my God. This scene.
He wants to help Sam SOOO bad ( for Dean, :P ) but he's worried about the potential damage ( to Dean, :P ) should he fail, the odds of which are tremendously high.
It's almost like Sam and Dean are Ed and Al Elric, from "Fullmetal Alchemist". Though Cas does recognize that the boys have good intentions, he also has a pretty good idea of what the outcome will be should they attempt to bring their mother back to life which is NOT GOOD ( actually, worse when you consider that the boys have precious little information and experience ). Ideally the boys shouldn't attempt this AT ALL, but because he can't talk them out of it, he's interfering in order to mitigate the consequences as best he can... Also, Dean and Cas are SOOO in love in this scene. <3
I have survived the dreaded kiss scene!
( No pictures because, obviously, I'm HELLA biased. XP )
Verdict: My ( unpopular ) opinion is that Meg and Cas have absolutely NO romantic chemistry in this episode.
( See? )
Meg's dirty flirting was... Well, she's a friggin' DEMON! What did everyone expect, exactly? That a demon wouldn't talk dirty to an 'goody two-shoes' angel of the Lord? Puh-lease. That's their go-to move to get a rise out of their celestial counterparts.
As for Castiel, the kiss is the FIRST and ONLY time we see Cas, well, actually acknowledge Meg's existence ( which is pretty lazy writing, isn't it? ). Combine that with the fact that his "people skills" are "rusty" and that he had LITERALLY just watched a film that—very likely—only further confused his current understanding of humanoid social interactions, even after putting aside my personal bias I'm STILL having trouble seeing this as having anything to do with 'romantic interest' on Castiel's part.
To summarize, thought they appeared to have romantic/sexual chemistry in that scene, when you take into account the context—that while Meg is experienced with humanoid social interactions she is still a DEMON; that Cas is NOT experienced with humanoid social interactions ( especially not THAT kind ) and was probably imitating video footage he had JUST seen ( much like Data from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" would in an attempt to 'be more human' ); and finally the notably few interactions these two characters have had leading up to this kiss scene—said chemistry simply isn't there.
P.S. I'm extremely disappointed that Cas wasn't kissing Meg as a distraction to steal HIS sword back from her. That would have been bad ass.
Where did Meg's clothes go?
So... The guys get to keep their clothes on when being tortured, but the women don't?
Sith lord Meg uses the dark side of the force on Crowley.
It's SUPER EFFECTIVE!
Castiel took advantage of being temporarily banished to find Crowley's bones?! BAD ASS!!!
( and when he returned with said bones, he doesn't even so much as look at Meg! )
( I'm telling you, they have NO chemistry~ )
But I'm torn now.
I mean, Cas ganking Crowley without hesitation was bad ass, but... He GANKED Crowley! T_T
DEAN: Well, she’s smart, I’ll give her that. I was gonna kill her, too.
DEAN: *to Cas* ’Course, I’d have given you an hour with her first. CASTIEL: Why would I want that?
I'm telling you, there's NOTHING between Meg and Castiel!!!
Well... Not in this episode, at least. ^^;;
The last scene: Dean and Cas in love-love!
DEAN: Thanks, Cas. Hadn’t it been for you—
CASTIEL: Crowley was right. It’s not going well for me upstairs.
DEAN: If there’s anything we can do—
CASTIEL: There isn’t. I wish circumstances were different. Much of the time I’d rather be here.
DEAN: Look, Cas, we know you got a steaming pile on your plate. There’s no need for apologies. We’re your friends.
CASTIEL: Listen, Sam, we’ll find another way.
Their love-love almost evident with JUST the transcript alone, but when you hear their tones and see their expressions... Well, you can't deny that it's love.
