"Supernatural" Catch Up Marathon: 6x17
Updated: Jun 6, 2020
Season 6, Episode 17: My Heart Will Go On.
Oh my God! The Winchester boys played ‘rock, paper, scissors’ and Dean DIDN’T pick rock!
ELLEN: You smell like a bar, you know that?
BOBBY: You don't exactly smell like a rose yourself.
ELLEN: Huh. Yeah, I've been hunting with Jo. What's your excuse?
Did I miss an episode— Nope? Okay, then I’ll wait for an explanation…
While you did demonstrate that you were ‘smartening up’by FINALLY picking something OTHER than ‘rock’, but then you had to go ahead and say THIS:
DEAN: I mean, accidents don't just happen accidentally.
SAM:*gives Dean a look*
DEAN: You know what I mean.
Two steps forward, one step back.
ELLEN: Oh, these so-called accidents— We're seeing 'em nationwide. About 75, so far. I got Jo and her crew working on a cluster in California.
Seriously, where the Hell did the Harvelles come from?!
Don’t get me wrong! I’ve missed them sooo much and I still love them dearly, but I am SO confused right now!
Wait, now NO ONE has heard of the Titanic?!
Not to sound like a broken record, but… What the Hell is going on?!
SAM: The RMS Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world when it made its maiden voyage across the North Atlantic in 1912.
DEAN: So what's the big friggin' deal? It's a ship. It sailed.
SAM: Yeah, I don't know. Um... Oh, looks like there was a close call. Ship almost hit an iceberg.
DEAN: Almost? So?
SAM: So, uh, looks like the first mate spotted it just in time.
DEAN: Good for him. There anything else?
SAM: Wait a second.
SAM: Uh, this first mate. Mr I.P. Freeley.
DEAN: Well, that's not suspicious. You got a picture of old Freeley?
Balthy, dear, that is a sh*tty fake name. You're an angel, you can do better. Much, MUCH better.
BALTHAZAR: Boys, boys, boys. Whatever can I do for you?
DEAN: We need to talk.
BALTHAZAR: Oh, you seem upset, Dean.
DEAN: The hell with the boat, Balthazar?
BALTHAZAR: What boat?
SAM: The Titanic.
BALTHAZAR: Oh. Ja. The Titanic. Yes, well, uh, it was meant to sink, and I saved it.
BALTHAZAR: Well it was meant to bash into this iceberg thing and plunge into the briny deep with all this hoopla, and I saved it. Anything else I can answer for you?
BALTHAZAR: Why what?
DEAN: Why did you un-sink the ship?
BALTHAZAR: Oh, because I hated the movie.
DEAN: What movie?
BALTHAZAR: Exactly. *laughs*
SAM: Wait, so you saved a cruise liner because—
BALTHAZAR: Because that God-awful Celine Dion song made me want to smite myself.
SAM: Who's Celine Dion?
BALTHAZAR: Oh, she's a destitute lounge singer somewhere in Quebec, and let's keep it that way, please.
Wait, wait, wait! Let me get this straight: Balthy saved the Titanic because he hated the movie THAT much?
OMG, Balthazar, you are my hero! LOL!
BALTHAZAR: Oh, uh, sorry, uh. You have me confused with the other angel. You know, the one in the dirty trenchcoat who's in love with you.
Balthy knows what's going on.
DEAN: You've got to be kidding me. Sam, check it out.
DEAN:*pointing at the ad* Too soon?
SAM: Yeah, Dean. I'm pretty sure six seconds is ‘too soon’.
SAVED BY CAS!!!
DEAN: Well, riddle me this -- if fate's going after the boat people, why'd she try to waste me and Sam?
CASTIEL: Well, I imagine she harbors a certain degree of rage toward you.
SAM: What did we do? CASTIEL: Nothing of import. Just the tiny matter of averting the Apocalypse and rendering her obsolete. I think maybe she's a little irritated about that. And then you go and dangle yourselves in front of her...
DEAN: So we've pissed fate off personally.
Cas the Sassy.
CASTIEL: If I know her—and I do—she won't stop until you're dead.
DEAN: Awesome. So what do we do?
CASTIEL: Kill her.
You are SO not in love with Dean.
Obviously, because EVERYONE’s first thought when a casual friend’s life is in peril is GANK THE B*TCH!!!
*ends heavy sarcasm with an eye roll*
Seriously, though. If it were anyone BUT Dean, Castiel would probably try many other things—offer to be an intermediary, negotiate, attempt a bribe should negotiations fail, attempt blackmail should the bribe fail, and so on—BEFORE giving the kill order for what was once an integral cog in the fabric of their known reality and whose death has the potential to have serious reality warping repercussions… Right?
DEAN: You need new friends, Cas.
CASTIEL: I'm trying to save the ones I have, Dean.
Paranoid Winchesters out for a walk!
When they suddenly stop and Dean says "Oh you gotta be kidding me." all I could think of is the end of the Smosh video: Pokemon in Real Life.
CASTIEL: Atropos. You look well.
ATROPOS: I look like stomped-over crap, because of you.
CASTIEL: All right, let's talk about this.
ATROPOS: Talk? About what? Maybe about how you and those two circus clowns destroyed my work. You ruined my life.
CASTIEL: Let's not get emotional.
ATROPOS: Not get emotional?! I had a job. God gave me a job. We all had a script. I worked hard. I was really, really good at what I did...Until the day of the big prize fight. And then what happens? You throw out the book!
CASTIEL: Well, I'm sorry. But freedom is more preferable.
ATROPOS: Freedom? This is chaos! How is it better? You know, I even went to Heaven just to ask what to do next, and you know what? No one would even talk to me.
CASTIEL: There are more pressing matters at hand.
ATROPOS: But I don't know what happens next. I need to know. It's what I do.
CASTIEL: I'm sorry. But your services are no longer required.
Translation: U FIRED!!!
CASTIEL: It's Balthazar. He's erratic—
ATROPOS: Bull crap. This isn't about some stupid movie. He's under your orders. You sent him back to save that ship.
CASTIEL: No, I didn't. Why would I?
ATROPOS: Oh, maybe because you're in the middle of a war and you're desperate?
ATROPOS: Come on. This is about the souls.
CASTIEL: You don't know what you're talking about.
ATROPOS: That angel went and created 50,000 new souls for your war machine.
CASTIEL: You're confused.
ATROPOS: No. You can't just mint money, Castiel. It's wrong...It's dangerous... And I won't let you.
Why am I getting the feeling that maybe Cas is going dark side?
CASTIEL: You don't have a choice.
ATROPOS: Maybe I don't. So here's a choice for you. If you don't go back and sink that boat, I'm gonna kill your two favorite pets.
CASTIEL: I won't let you.
ATROPOS: Oh, yeah? What are you gonna do?
CASTIEL: Do you really want to test me?
ATROPOS: Okay. Fine. But think about this: I've got two sisters out there. They're bigger, in every sense of the word. Kill me, Sam and Dean are target one. For simple vengeance. You're not fighting a war or anything, right? You can watch them every millisecond of every day. Because maybe you've heard – fate strikes when you least expect it.
BALTHAZAR:*like a ninja*
CASTIEL: Balthazar, stop.
BALTHAZAR: Ah. Awkward.
Dammit, Cas! She was threatening your baby!
Er… I mean babies. You know, cause he’s saving the friends he has and all that…
Of course they have to play Celine Dion!
Dean probably would rather NEVER wake up then to wake up to “My Heart Will Go On”.
Dean, stop being mean to Cas. At the VERY least, stop being mean to Cas for the things he did right: he fixed history AND he saved you without killing anyone ( this time ).
If you absolutely HAVE to be mean to Cas, why not tell him that you don't believe that Balthy changed history ‘just because he hated a movie’.
Oh, I just made myself sad. I sense that I'm going to be having a LOT of intense Cas feels in the immediate future.
DON’T GO DARK SIDE, CASTIEL!!!
CASTIEL: You're the ones who taught me that you can make your own destiny. You don't have to be ruled by fate. You can choose freedom. I still believe that that's something worth fighting for.
*attack of THE FEELS*
I didn't think they would be THAT immediate!!!
