Diner Of Death. A 45 clicks into place on the jukebox, and as the vaguely psychedelic opening bars of Jefferson Starship's "Miracles" emanate from the jukebox speakers, the camera leaps across the room for a low, wide angle of Castiel standing alone among the corpses. And I must admit, clever as it is for them to end this episode with a Jefferson Starship song, it was even more clever of them to open it with a song that swears, "I believe in miracles!" while closing it with one that sighs, "If only you believe in miracles, so would I." Remember when they used to pull shit like this all the time on this show? "I do not!" Only because you have a brain the size of a walnut, you dizzy lizard. "Hey!"
The camera roars forward, angling itself around the various corpses on the floor, and as it reaches My Sweet Baboo, Crowley himself calls out, "Really, Castiel, this is getting ridiculous." Dun-dun-DUN! "How many times am I going to have to clean up your messes?" Crowley mildly wonders, and the camera gets all up in My Devious Baboo's steely-eyed grille for a moment before we cut abruptly to black.
I enjoyed that far more than I thought I would. "So did I!" I still think the seventh season's going to suck, though. "So do I!" Care to handle next week's promo? "No!" Shit.
So, next week's apparently devoted to Castiel's season-long backstory, and will apparently explain this episode's supposedly massive twist. I think. As long as they leave that Jimmy Novak moron out of it, it might be okay. Maybe. See you then! "Kisses!"
Demian is inordinately impressed by episodes with huge body counts. Raoul's just happy they referenced Mommie Dearest. "My babies! Someone stole BOTH my babies! EEEEEEEEEEEEE!" You may reach the former at firstname.lastname@example.org. The latter is an imaginary gay dragon on the Internet.
