You know what? I'm !@#$ing pissed... the past three episodes haven't recorded. There was a pre-emption for sports, a mess up in the feed, and now a loss of signal.

Re: Supernatural 6x18 Frontierland Discussion & Spoilers

Awwww, that last scene with Bobby. Simple and effective.

I.P. Freeley saved the Titanic.... Castiel, you naughty, interfere with the prime directive angel. Fate looked like Reese Witherspoon in librarian's clothes. So, I guess she wasn't a Dean kind of librarian.

Castiel didn't have any problems lying to the brothers, did he? Even if they are his "favorite pets."

EDIT-and they did get the timing right, didn't they? The Titanic sank 99 years ago this morning.

You know, I think I'm the only female viewer who watches this show, and is in love with Bobby.

I just adore him.

Re: Supernatural 6x18 Frontierland Discussion & Spoilers

I love Bobby. Bobby's got that lovable curmudgeon/teddy bear/protector/sex god combo going on. Hard mix to pull off, but he does it. Or it could just be that he has facial hair instead of the manscaping shit that I hate.

Man that sucks, I remember back in season 4 (the season I love the most) my local affiliate was always having problems. No picture some nights, no sound on others, static others, cutting off mid episode, ect. It drove me crazy.

Re: Supernatural 6x18 Frontierland Discussion & Spoilers

Normally I don't pay much attention to this, but I really enjoyed the soundtrack in this episode. Especially Blondie's One Way or Another. I actually laughed out loud at that, and I don't normally laugh out loud at all. The "too soon?" exchange had a similar effect.

Good episode. One thing I was confused about though, how did Sam recognize who fate was after that guy got hit by the bus? Did I miss something there?

I assumed it was because a woman's face appeared in the window of an abandoned building, watching the man die. What they didn't really explain was how Sam could see her when no one else did.

Re: Supernatural 6x18 Frontierland Discussion & Spoilers

Well, no one else would have been looking directly at the building during the ensuing chaos after the lawyer had been hit by the bus. Sam was on alert looking for something else or someone else specifically. His focus wasn't on the accident itself while everyone else's at the scene would have been.

Fate looked more like Kaley Cuoco than Reese Witherspoon to me.

Re: Supernatural 6x18 Frontierland Discussion & Spoilers

We don't have any indication that Fate (or this particular fate) is invisible. She just has the ability to freeze people and/or time and thereby move around unnoticed.

I'm curious how this discussion of fate fits into Death and the natural order of things. We had a whole episode recently in which Dean learned not to mess with such things, after all. You would think he would have mentioned it.

Re: Supernatural 6x18 Frontierland Discussion & Spoilers

You'd think he would, but......two things. One, Dean was worried to death about Bobby and that setting things straight would cost him Ellen (and it would). Dean's been known to have a blind spot where family is concerned. Two, though their histories were basically the same, who's to say Dean and Sam's history was exactly the same at that point? They were already in the altered timeline at that point. Maybe Dean hadn't learned exactly the same lessons from, or had as much interaction with, Death.

Re: Supernatural 6x18 Frontierland Discussion & Spoilers

They seem to be two separate "occupations" though. Death is basically subordinate to the Fates. He doesn't decide who dies, he just makes sure that those who do, well, do. When Balthazar went back and changed history, Death wasn't responsible for killing those people since their fates had been altered, albeit without the Fates' consent. Which is what pissed them off.

Death really had no involvement in these events since Sam and Dean didn't actually stop anyone from dying. Fate were just running about "course correcting" the events, and Death was coming in to clean up after her (which we didn't see because it didn't play a relevant part in the episode).

Re: Supernatural 6x18 Frontierland Discussion & Spoilers

I thought this was a pretty fun episode. I am ashamed to say both I and my girlfriend were thinking we somehow missed when Ellen was brought back, but it was really bugging us because we didn't recall her at all in recent episodes (in our defense, there have been a number of resurrections on the show). My girlfriend kept saying something about the license plate being different but for some reason neither of us, despite both noting in our heads the car now had stripes, thought much of it.

I think our Supernatural fan club cards are in the process of being revoked.

Anyway, while I did enjoy this and have generally enjoyed this season (even if I do think it's weaker than previous years), there is a surprising lack of attention paid to what I assume is supposed to be the "big bad" - Mother. Do you suppose the plan was to always have that be a story that took place in just a couple of episodes at the end of the year or have they had two plans - one if they get renewed that stretched out the Mother storyline? I'm more interested in the war in Heaven thing and that got some slight mention in this episode, and I don't really care about the Mother thing right now. What confuses me is this season is pretty loosely structured for a show that had no real reason to expect another season after this one (unless I missed an early announcement).
