SUPERNATURAL “Hello Cruel World” Review

Supernatural (CW) Hello Cruel World

SUPERNATURAL “Hello Cruel World” Season 7 Episode 2 – For a little while in the beginning of this episode, I remember thinking to myself that this one was moving kind of slow. By the end though, I was eating those words, my heart in my throat for the last few minutes of it (much like the premiere actually).

First up can we talk about how absolutely wonderful Mark Pellegrino was in this? Lucifer’s mind screw with Sam reaches new levels as his “bunk buddy” starts seeing things even when others are in the room. Heck he’s seeing things *through* the people in the room. But just when I thought that Sam would never be able to tell reality from fantasy again, once again he is saved by his big brother. Dean grabbing his hand and telling Sam to hold on to him and how to tell what was real – that was, in a word, fan- freaking-tastic. Yes I know that Lucifer did make his way back but at least now Sam knows that he’s not stuck in Hell and that has to count for something.

And it’s a good thing Dean sort of got through to Sam because that’s about the only good thing that happened for them. Bobby’s missing and his place is burned to cinders, Sam is seizing in the back of an ambulance, Dean’s got a broken leg and oh yeah, even dropping a car on them won’t kill the leviathans. So far it’s been a bang-up week for the Winchesters.

Finally I’m going to stick to my guns and say that there are just too many reasons why Castiel can’t be dead. I could write an article on all the reasons. Heck I might even do that at some point. But for now, the simplest one I can think of is the fact that they would never let a main character go without a big sendoff. A jacket floating in water? Nope, no way. Not buying it.

My favorite bits..

Kinda loving that they started out exactly where we left off last time.

Oh noes! Don’t let Cass’ vessel explode. He’s gonna need that when he comes back. (yeshewillshutup)

“You’re my little bitch in every sense of the term.” – Oh I so don’t want to know what he means by that.

Aw hell…Bobby is so right on that one.

Aha! Now we know what the “black ink” is in the title card.

The way Dean’s chin started to quiver when he picked up Castiel’s coat and gently folded it. It made my chin quiver, too. (even if I don’t really believe he’s actually dead)

“He was friends with us, wasn’t he? Can’t get much dumber than that.”

Ha! Yet another song already in my iPod. Gotta admit, “Black Water” was indeed the perfect choice.

“Oh he wants to hold your wittle hand…sweet.” – OMG that was creepy, awesome and scary all at the same time.

Sam admitting that he was having trouble being able to tell what was real and what wasn’t.

Sam/Lucifer talking at once.

Sam telling Dean that Lucifer said he wasn’t real either.

“It’s like a salad bar, but with pie.” – Hahaha! Best commercial ever.

Thinking it was pretty smart of Dean to turn on Sam’s GPS on his phone.

Bobby taking the time to check in on Dean. Aw.

Bobby rolling his eyes at Dean for claiming he was fine even though he’d just lost the one best friend he ever had, his brother was going crazy and the Leviathans were surfing the sewers.

“Shut up..idjit.”

“He might not know your appendix from your vagina.” – Yeah that would be a very bad doc.

Chopped brains on toast? Nice one, Bobby!

The boss? The others who are eating? Edgar and Annie? Wow, are these all leviathans? Holy crap.

Lucifer sitting there reading the magazine like he didn’t have a care in the world.

“You can kiss my ass, doctor monster face.” Nice one, Sherriff Mills.

Bobby asking Sam if he was having a little “bag lady” moment.

“Just don’t let Satan change my pre-sets.” – Har.

Okay here’s one time where being spoiled really sucks. Cuz I already knew it wasn’t Dean who came and picked up Sam.

Sam trying to shoot Lucifer. Yeah, like that’s gonna work.

“This is a discussion that does not require a weapon’s discharge!” – You know, as a Winchester that is something that I’m sure has to be clarified sometimes.

Dean finding the way to break through the fog in Sam’s brain. By making his brother put all his trust in him.

“I’m the only one who can legitimately kick your ass in real time.”

No no no no…Bobby’s house can’t be burned down!

“This is Bobby Singer’s direct hotline. You should NOT have this number.” – I’m so gonna change my outgoing message to that.

Dean leaving that message for Bobby swearing that he was going to take himself and Sam out if Bobby was gone. *sobs a little*

Oh ouch. Yep, been there, done that. Breaking a bone like that is no fun. No fun at all.

“Come on, I’m the one with the broken leg. You gotta carry ME!” Oh, poor Dean.

Wow, I never thought I’d actually see Dean calling 911.

OMG my brain is going to implode. Sam and Dean BOTH hurt? BOTH in an ambulance and going to *that* hospital?? Aahhh!!

What did you think of this episode of Supernatural? Got any favorite bits or least favorite bits of your own? I’d love to hear from you!
