Oh, my heart.

Not sure how coherent this is going to be, since I'm still crying. Jesus.

Completely setting aside for the moment the fact that I really, genuinely like Bobby...what is this going to do to Sam and Dean? To Dean, in particular.

I love that Bobby thought of Sam and Dean as his boys. That he threw a baseball with Dean. Stood up to John about it.

The scene with Bobby's parents broke my heart. His dad...oh, man. What an awful person. I can't feel bad at all that he died the way he did; I do feel horrible for Bobby that he felt driven to do it. And his mom, all, "God is going to punish you."

I really loved that Rufus stuck with Bobby. I think there was a lot of layers to their relationship, partnership, whatever that we will never know or see. And whatever their falling out, that core was still there.

This episode...definitely up there in my "favorites", but trying to think too much about it right now is making me want to cry some more. Which is making my head hurt again.

We didn't actually see Bobby 'letting go' (also, how big of a dick was that reaper? Geez.) so I suppose maybe there could still be a miracle and Bobby isn't actually dead? Though I'm not holding out a lot of hope for that.

I loved the episode like woah! but it was so not the episode to watch when you're already dealing with a sick parent. I keep finding myself wanting to cry just thinking about it. Everyone was amazing in this one, though.

it was so sad! I was right with you bawling my eyes out (even though I cried the hardest at the whole:"they are my boys!" parts....the proud, bittersweet moments get me the most)

It was awesome, but jesus do I have a crying headache now

That episode gutted me -- and made me remember why I fell in love with Show in the first place. Amazing writing, acting, cinematography, everything. *sobs*

*hugs* it's okay bb

I definately agree with a lot of things you've said here. Though I dont think it will be one of my favorites because of how angsty it is... Im not a huge fan of angst because I cry way to easily sometimes *sigh* it was still a really heart breaking episode though- definately going to live on in my memory

I had a moment where I wondered if we'd get a little peek at what caused Rufus and Bobby to fall out. Dude, I could watch them bicker forever. Alas.

I am home sick today in bed, and just thought, oh, I'll watch Supernatural from yesterday.
I basically cried the whole way through. That was awful. And amazingly excellent.
I am so utterly wrecked at this point! And kind of delighted, because how good was that episode, in every way.

*hugs you*

I'm blown away by the performances, of course, and I'm worried about all of them. I don't want to lose Bobby, I don't want *them* to lose Bobby, but at this point I think they sort of have to, in order to grow up all the way. And I do think that having taken it this far, giving him a miracle and letting him live would be a cheat. Comatose and in long-term care to make him useless as a resource for them? That might work. But the reaper said he was done--can a reaper ever be wrong?

Basically I'm trying not to think too hard about it, and just waiting to see what the writers are going to do with it.

One thing I hope does happen, and I can't see how they can avoid it now, is Dean's falling apart. I think his "You have to carry *me*" in Bobby's scrapyard was prophetic for the second half of the season. Sam may be suffering and staggering under his own load, but he has managed to devise coping mechanisms--Dean has just kept his head down and kept powering forward and never developed ways to cope with stuff. I think the day's finally here when he can't power forward anymore. And this time, finally, after all the times Dean's parented Sam, it'll be Sam's turn to carry Dean, and have them both acknowledge his effort.

I find myself actually missing Castiel, as he was before he started trying to run heaven and enlisted Crowley's help to do it. I never thought I'd say that. I have half a suspicion that Cas will return for May sweeps, and he might ressurect Bobby for the season finale. That's my spec. And them's my thoughts, such as they are.
