Sam: I just want to make sure you’re okay.
Dean: What, like my feelings?
Sam: If that’s what you want to talk about, sure.
Dean: Okay. I’ll tell you what. Why don’t I go get some, uh, herbal tea…
Dean: …and you can find some Cowboy Junkies on the dial…
Sam: Eat me Dean!
Dean: …and ya know what? We can just talk it out. Good talk. Nay! Great talk. Very healthy!
Dean: What? Sneaking out in the middle of the night to go hunt monsters with the apple dumpling gang? Is that what kids are doing for kicks these days?
Dean: Look, I’m sorry to be raining on your parade, but you’re way too young to be doing this.
Krissy: You’re never too young to kill monsters. Especially the ones who kill your family.
Krissy: Don’t be suck a dweeb, okay. We’re not the X-Men. Victor’s helping us get revenge.
Dean: Yeah? Well I don’t care what he is, he sucks, because you and you’re little crew here got caught and if it wasn’t for me, your faces would be spread all over the news.
Sam: Alright so these kids are…
Dean: Dangerous and off their meds?
Dean: Not what I expected.
Krissy: And what was that?
Dean: A little more Lord of the Flies and a little less Huxtables.
Victor: These kids are the cream of the crop. They are The Beatles. They are the dream team. And once they get their revenge, they’ll be better hunters than any of us ever dreamed of.
Dean: Why don’t you stay here and look after The Brady Bunch.
Dean: Yeah, I never trust a guy who wears a sweater.
Krissy: Why are you with the vampire that killed my dad?
Dean: You’re barkin’ up the wrong tree. She didn’t kill your pops.
Krissy: I don’t want to hurt you, Dean, but I will if you don’t move.
Dean: Like I said, hunting isn’t always about killing.
Victor: I’m sorry, Sam, I can’t have anyone poisoning my kids minds.
Sam: Other than yourself, that is.
Victor: I don’t need to justify my actions to you or your self-righteous ass of a brother!
Krissy: He killed them off your orders?
Victor: You needed motivation. I scouted each and every one of you and I knew it was the only way to get you to hunt.
Aidan: So you killed our families?
Victor: I know the deaths are tragic, but think of the future lives that will now be saved because you are together.
Dean: So what you’re saying is you like that boy over there and you want to stay.
Krissy: You’re alright for an old guy.
Dean: I’m really not that old.
Krissy: You keep telling yourself that.
Dean: Listen, there’s something I want to tell you about Krissy.
Aidan: Yeah, you’ll kill me if I ever hurt her, blah, blah, blah, blah.
Dean: No. She’ll kill you.
Dean: Maybe if we shut that hellhole once and for all those three can have a real life.
Sam: Maybe they won’t be the only ones.
I know I didn’t promise any extracurricular activity at the end of the post, but this Supernatural was outstanding, wasn’t it? It was such a great look at how the life of hunting and doing so at such a young age turned Sam and Dean into the men they are today. They’re worried about what might happen to Krissy, Josephine and Aidan going forward, but with the network of good hunters looking in on them, much as they did Sam and Dean as their own father was gone, I think they’ll turn out just fine. Listening to the advice from the lips of the brothers during the episode showed how much they have grown and how incredible it would be see the, some day, with families of their own. That inevitable series finale can shoot us through the remaining years of their lives and what becomes of them and I won’t be unhappy!
Until next week…
