READ THE TITLE AGAIN.
Ugh, what a mental image. The Bobby part that is. With Sam and Dean, well…it’s understandable. But still pretty fucking weird. And, seriously, this is all that I took from the episode if I ignore Booby-Bobbeh and every scene he was in.
Episode title: Of Grave Importance
What it should be called instead: The One Where You Almost Die of Boredom. Again.
I think it started off with two dumbass teenagers in a haunted house. “Oh, this is wrong we shouldn’t be here” “I know, but we’re dumbasses in the opening of a Supernatural episode – death lies ahead” “YAY!!”. It didn’t go exactly like that but I can assure you that my version is much more entertaining.
After the opening, Sam and Dean are in a diner talking. Dean mentions Dick Roman, I stare at Sam’s hair…I wonder where they get these fugly shirts from…
I wonder what I’m having for breakfast. I realise that I don’t even eat breakfast. Oh. Oh. Sorry! I’ll get back to the episode now. Dean gets a call from Annie. She’s some hunter that the boys know, y’know. One of those we-have-so-much-long-winded-history-together-even-though-we-have-never-called-on-you-for-help-or-acknowledged-your-existence-until-this-episode kind of people that they “know”. Please, show. Don’t insult me. The other fans, sure. But not me. So yes, she asks for help on a hunt and Dean’s all, “Yeah, sure. Fine! I know that this episode will suck so let me end this phone call and move onto one of our more humorous moments” Again, it may not have gone like that exactly but far more entertaining than what he actually said.
Sam: You know that she and Bobby had a thing, right?
WE DON’T NEED TO KNOW. DEAN DOESN’T NEED TO KNOW AND WE DON’T NEED TO KNOW.
And then Dean’s all like, I mighta had a thing with her too. Eventually Sam admits that he has too and, lol this Annie check gets around doesn’t she. Sam’s explanation was pretty funny that. “She was stressed, and I, I, I…..didn’t have a soul?” of course it also made me realise that
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DEATH BY SAM WINCHESTER’S PEEN’O’DEATH WOULD BE HAPPENING*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But after the next scene, I’d say that she deserves it. She walks into the house where the dumbasses were with no weapons (sigh). Looks around, spots the bodies and the *DIES. (Told youu). Now usually this would be the part where we never see this random woman again but….
It’s all about ghosts and…ghost!bobby and, does anyone actually still give a shit? Sam and Dean get radio silence from Annie and decide to look for her. Of course this is all prefaced with scenes of Bobby screaming “YOU FUCKING IDJITS. Y U NO SEE ME EVEN THOUGH I’M A GHOST. IDJITS! LOOK AT ME! I’M IN A PINK TUTU! LOOK AT ME!!!” or something, like they can fucking hear him. Dude, shut the fuck up already. Dean momentarily leaves the flask (I’ll get back to that) behind but the remembers it meaning that (spoiler alert: BOBBY HAS BOOBS. Joke. That was a joke) Bobby’s coming too.
They get there and Annie meets up with Ghost!Bobby and blah, blah, blah. But, lol they both fail at being ghosts and can’t touch anything or see anything. BOBBY HAS BEEN A GHOST FOR A MONTH, GUYS. HE HAS DRUNK BEER, HE HAS MOVED BOOKS, HE HAS…DEFILED PAPER (PROBABLY), HE EVEN SAVED A FALLING ROBOTIC CAT FROM A TREE. WHY CAN HE SUDDENLY NOT DO ANYTHING? But no he can’t and we’re treated to Ghost 101. Boring!
Some ghost called Victoria tells them that this other dude is evil and killed them all blah, blah. Annie by the way is like an Ellen 2.0. Just what this show needed.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>boring, stupid unimportant stuff happens<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
After Sam and Dean leave to do research. They end up back in their motel room at some point and Dean’s in the shower. IN THE SHOWER. I may have gotten a little excited. BUT THEN WE SEE HIS ARM AND HEAD FOR THREE SECONDS AND…THE CAMERA PANS TO….Bobby.
He writes a message in the mirror after Dean (who’s looking pretty good post-shower, yum) is all like, “Who’s there” and Bobby helpfully writes “Bobby”. Awww. Sam and Dean make some shocked faces for a few minutes. I assume that that’s all they did, I got distracted.
They go back to the house and somehow see Victoria who tries to tell that that they’re about to burn the wrong bones (or whatever) and that it was the other mean!ghost who killed all of them blah, blah blah. But then mean!ghost (who’s been listening in, clearly Vicky, Bobby and Annie were too stupid to realise that he’d fucking hear everything) comes over and…kills Victoria…again. Oh well. And then (and pay attention here), he puts something of his in Sam’s pocket – BOBBY AND ANNIE SEE THE ENTIRE THING – and then is attached to Sam and Dean when they leave to kill him (again) or whatever. Leaving Bobby and Annie behind…sigh. But then Bobby’s like, “HE MUST HAVE PUT SOMETHING ON THEM”. WHAT. MUST? MUST? YOU JUST WATCHED HIM DO IT! Ugh, what is this shit. Also…really, ghosts are bound to a physical object that has to be close to someone to be able to haunt them/follow them around. LOL, oh show. We have six other seasons that say otherwise. Fail.
They drive somewhere. The mean!ghost attacks Sam for a few minutes and Sam’s all, “OMG! OWWWWWWWW! DEAN MAKE IT STOP, OUCH. DAMMIT, OW!” and…well mean!ghost eventually dies.
They go back to the house and RING-A-DING-DING they can see Bobby! “You can see me?” You don’t fucking say. Bobby goes to get rid of the other ghosts or something, and tells Dean to keep the flask safe.
OH YEAH, even though I cottoned onto this like, 500 episodes ago and thought it was stupid. Sam finally realises that the flask is what’s keeping Bobby around, and that’s why he couldn’t find Bobby when he tried to use a talking board to contact him. Well done Sam. Now toss the flask into FIRE. Do it! /wishful thinking. Sam and Dean say some shit about maybe tossing it into fire behind his back and Bobby tries to defend himself, saying that he stuck around to help them. Blah, blah. Dean gets pissed and says something about natural order (I’m pretty sure that argument will always fail when it’s coming from Sam or Dean) and how Bobby should have gone (hear, hear) and Bobby goes off in a huff.
Maybe something else happens, but I have no idea.
Thoughts: DULL, DULL, DULL, DULL, DULL. I don’t CARE about Booby any more. Nor did I find the whole Bobby, Sam and Dean sleeping with the same chick thing funny. Sam’s hair was just, simply not up to my standards. The ghost plot probably would have been better if they hadn’t fucked up what they’d established about the ghosts before. They used the house from Playthings, which was a much, much better episode. WHY. Also, really? Another filler episode? Apparently having an extra episode this season means that we need 5 more filler episodes that we had last season. It’s sad when the only memorable scenes of an episode are Dean in the shower and Dean after his shower.
Next week: I’m pretty sure I’m going to be bitching about Felicia Day. How sure is pretty sure? Really pretty sure.
