: Dean broke down after learning he started the breaking of the 66 Seals, but Castiel's boss turned him around. Sam was drinking demon blood to bulk up for a confrontation with Lilith.
Welcome to the most wildly absurd episode of Supernatural
ever. For all of you big Supernatural fans, get ready for a swift kick in the pants with a series of shout-outs to the fandom. Sam and Dean walk into a comic book store and ask about a possible haunting. After some time, the comic book guy recognizes them and asks if they’re LARPers. As if you don’t actually know, this means Live Action Role Players. He asks because they’re acting just like Sam and Dean, two characters from an underground cult series of books called Supernatural
Let's go down the rabbit hole, kiddies, it only gets more crazy from here. Supernatural
is written by Carver Edlund (the real last names of two real Supernatural
writers) and even though they never sold very well, they had a small cult following.
The opening credits for this week are in the style of a faux pulp novel series. The Winchesters head back to the hotel to research the books, Dean reads a few, where he always appears shirtless on the cover with rippling abs. He’s shocked at how sexual the series is because he’s full frontal in it. I think I missed that episode.
Sam is busy on the Internet, reading up on what some of the Supernatural fans are saying. Apparently there are Sam Girls and Dean Girls, and some fans are even into slash. Sam has to explain to Dean what that is, and he’s disgusted by the notion of the two handsome brothers being intimate with one another. Actually seeing them talk about this could be the funniest thing this show has ever done.
Sam appreciates the comments, but he does add, “For fans, they sure do complain a lot.” As someone who writes about this show and sees you fans every day, I have to say that this show pretty much nailed the fandom to a tee.
