SpN 11X12, version babble

I still get a kick out of posting 11X--it's still to me incredible that we made it this far! And we're doing great!

Wednesday's ep...I admit I was eyerolly and sighing "Oh, great, Cas' wooden kid and the annoying vamp bait again. Wonderful." I was pleased to see Jody--I like her a lot. I ended up being pleasantly surprised. I hope Show will let Nancy Won write all stories that involve teenage girls. Turns out that Cas' kid and VampBait are much, much more interesting when they're written like humans and not cardboard cutouts stamped "Angsty Girl, Teenage". This young actress is seems to be wanting to make a spot for herself on the show--she seems to have jumped on the SpN Family bandwagon. I'm not especially opposed to her now--she really did do a good job last ep, and was able to show that yes, there was something going on there besides rebellious teen with daddy issues. She's also not suffering from the Supernatural Hooker makeup that the show seems to love. These makeup people make some startling choices, face-wise. Was it last season, or the one before, where Jensen/Dean very distractingly (in a bad way) wore lip gloss quite a bit?

So, yeah, Claire was actually sympathetic in a way she hadn't been to me before. I could see why she was throwing herself into the life and making huge mistakes because she wouldn't unbend enough to ask for help--maybe even forgot how to ask for help. I'm glad she bonded with Jody. The scenes featuring Dean and her were a little softer (Dean-softer) and Sam was good with her--much better at the Talks than Dean. I was glad to see it, the way he talked to her felt real. I confess, I haven't bought any of Sam's special talks since the ep where he lied to the ghost boy. It shook me so much because I'd always seen Sam as the more compassionate brother, the one better able to deal with average people and the most honest bother. Boy, season 4 left me with a lot of fallout so far as Sam's character, stuff I'm still dealing with. Let me also say that I've come to admire and appreciate Sam so much more, because of everything he's been through and overcome. He's so brave. And very handsome, the years have been good to him…yesss….

I'm watching these eps and worrying more and more—this is SpN, they give with one hand and take with the other. The boys are getting along better and better, and I'm not sure if anyone agrees with this, but it's mostly because of Sam. In my opinion, Sam made a conscious choice to make the brotherhood what it once was. He knows how much Dean needs that, and I think he's accepting it finally. Again, this is just my opinion, or head canon, or whatever you want to call it.

Anyway, the point (there is a point?) of this blabbling is The Girls Are Alright, and if this is a sneaky, 'round about way to get to a spin-off, more power to them. They'd do good in my books by making Jody the headmistress of the WOL Hunters Boarding School. just sayin'.

Yes, WOL boarding school!

I would love Jodi in a spinoff, with the girls or with Sheriff Donna, it would be awesome. I enjoyed the last ep quite a lot, quite a lot.
I'm sorry, i just can't brain right now.

LOL! This post used up my allotted bit of braining for the day....

I just came here to post the same thing! Ever since the Hibbing 911 episode, I've been wishing for a Sheriff Jody/Sheriff Donna spin off. I would definitely watch that :)

Either WOL Hunters Boarding School. or Wayward Daughters... I'm a YES! With Jody, Donna, and now Eileen - I would LOVE to see some sassy older women in the story lines as well.

It would be neat to have a woman-centered show as the spin-off. I doubt that they'd ever again hit that right combo of chemistry with another set of guys. The ensemble show that they tried to foist off on us was suuuuuuuch a miss for who their audience is, but something like this? We're on board! :D

And they could add little hunter chick (I'm pretty crap at names) that called Sam and Dean because her Dad went missing and whatever's left of her little Scooby Gang that the Evil!Dad-dude didn't get killed. I think there was a token boy who survived the episode. :)

Right, right, I'd forgotten about her--probably because I *really* don't like her....

You forgot built. Sam is built, baby.

And I'm not a fan of Claire or Alex but I agree that Jody AND Donna running a school for bratty teenage hunters (which Alex is pretty adamant about not being part of and who can blame her) would be an excellent spin off.

I agree that the brother's seen to be doing so much better. And it is because of Sam's efforts, I think. But Dean's hiding the truth about Amara and now that stupid Casifer knows I'm sure it won't be secret for long. I think the bumpy ride will be along real soon.....

I think if they use Dean's secret as the reason for some kind of blow up between them then that would make the whole Amara thing a waste of our time. That just pulls her down to the level of Ruby. What would be cool is if Dean spills, they argue (get it out of their system) and then work on it--TOGETHER. For once. ;D

And also, hell yeah, Sam is built, gotdamn.
