For Your Consideration: Supernatural, 4.07 “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester”

I touched ever so briefly on my love of Supernatural when I wrote a post during the 30 Day TV Show Challenge. Well, on my love of Dean Winchester anyway. It’s only natural that I include the Halloween themed episode of Supernatural in my Halloween themed posts.

OBSERVATIONS

I want so desperately to be one of those people who can go crazy with their Halloween decorations. You know, fake gravestones in the yard, spiderwebs on the porch. That kind of thing. Sadly I now live in the middle of the woods where the spiderwebs are real and we get no trick or treaters. Congrats to the people in this neighborhood for keeping it real.

I dig the spooky yard.

The female in the cold open bought a shit ton of candy! I’ve never had enough trick or treaters to necessitate both a bucket and jumbo bag of candy. It’s a good thing too because like her husband I don’t think I’d be able to resist the temptation. Unlike the husband, I don’t imagine my candy coming complete with razor blades.

How I'd look if I found razor blades in my chocolate.

Probably how I’d look if I found razor blades in my chocolate.

How did the husband die of a razor blade in his stomach and one in his throat? Four razor blades could not possibly have fit into that one piece of candy. Could it? Great, now I’ll be checking all my candy for hidden blades. Good thing it tastes the same when it’s all crushed up.

Thanks for putting this image in my head the next time I eat a Snickers bar.

And there’s a hex bag. Witches here we come! Bonus points to Dean for describing them as skeevy.

Boo hiss to skeevy witches.

The teenagers Halloween party in the basement is super lame yet highly realistic. Though I’m pretty sure my mom would have killed me if I tried to leave the house in a skirt as short as the one the cheerleader is wearing. And I would have been double dead if she caught me slutting it up while bobbing for apples.

She should probably get used to being on her knees. Just saying.

The sexy nurse is drowning in the apple bobbing bucket and her friends can’t get her out! Plus the water is boiling? It reminds me of a scene in this one Fear Street novel where a cheerleader gets stuck in a scalding hot shower and drowns/burns to death. As if one of those options isn’t horrible enough. Ugh.

Thank you for officially ruining apple bobbing forever.

How do the Winchester boys afford sexy, tailored suits? I assume that they are purchased with fake/stolen credit cards. But damn. How high is their credit limit?

All I can say is yum.

A history of Samhain and Halloween! For more information on this please read The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury. It’s fantastic and I love every bit of it.

Ghosts, zombies and leprechauns. Sounds like a very unique Halloween experience.

Damn Dean is seriously wrecking some Halloween candy. I picture one massive upset stomach before the day is through. Belching can only help so much.

That boy is going to need someone to rub his belly and I fully volunteer.

Ms. Blondey McCheerleader knows the deceased husband. Looks like the boys have a liar on their hands. Also her name is actually Tracy and she gets into violent altercations with teachers.

Violent attack on a teacher? Let's just make a casual note.

WTF kind of masks are the teenagers at the high school making? Some of those things are seriously fucked.

WTF? A bunch of little serial killers in training.

The art teacher looks like he would be a witch. Or are male witches known as warlocks? It’s hard to know from show to show. Either way this dude is creepy as all hell.

 

He looks like he may or may not torture small animals in his spare time.

There is a kid in an astronaut costume trick or treating at a motel. And he throws Dean some serious shade when he’s told that there isn’t anymore candy. This kid is a little bit my hero.

Castiel is in the house and Same is totally bumbling over him. It’s adorable and super awkward. Especially when Cass refers to him as the “boy with the demon blood”.

Total fangirl face.

Total fangirl face.

How does a witch get a hex bag INSIDE the wall of a motel room? I imagine that would take some serious magic. Or a lot of time to hang drywall and match wallpaper.

Is it horrible that all I could think was the word urologist when Uriel the specialist was introduced? Despite all of the serious talk about smiting towns and saving seals, I got a serious case of the giggles.

But the real laughter came when Dean found the Impala in the parking lot and yelled “Astronaut!”

astronaut!

How does Sam know the exact amount of fire required to blacken the finger bone of a newborn? Sometimes I wonder if Sam is actually a psychopath.

Gross Sam. Fucking gross.

Gross Sam. Fucking gross.

Bonus points to the pumpkin with its tongue sticking out. Very modern-day Miley Cyrus. It just hurt my soul a little to write that.

Unlike Miley, I find this delightful.

Little Miss Cheerleader is tied up in a basement and creepy art teacher is chanting over a cup of blood. And rubbing a knife over her boobs. That is so NOT necessary. Thanks Dean for shooting him and making it stop.

Everything about that creepy face screams witch.

Little Miss Cheerleader is also a witch! And the art teacher is her brother? Why did he choose such a disgusting shell when she chose a hot, young one? THIS MAKES NO SENSE TO ME.

You know she's bad because she's making a pouty face.

Samhain is a black cloud of smoke that possesses ugly art teacher/man witch. And makes out with his sister. Then snaps her neck and calls her a whore. To quote Veronica, “How very. ”

So not frightening.

So not frightening.

Ew, Sam rubbed blood on his and Dean’s faces to hide from Samhain. It worked but it’s disgusting. What if the art teacher had a disease? Never play in other people’s blood!

This is not a thing that should be happening.

This is not a thing that should be happening.

I like that Dean takes the opportunity to play big brother, warning Sam against using his psychic powers against the witch. Once a big bro, always a big bro.

Even his concerned face is adorable.

Zombie kid is totally reusing his Halloween costume at the mausoleum party. It’s not even that good of a costume. He makes up for it by being sucked into a crypt and dying.

Peace out zombie boy.

Peace out zombie boy.

Real zombies are joining the party! And ghosts! Now where are those leprechauns Sam promised?

Not as cool as the zombies on The Walking Dead.

Not as cool as the zombies on The Walking Dead.

I can’t take Sam seriously when he uses his psychic powers (aka holds out his hand and makes a constipated face). I hope the killer headache and nose bleed are worth it buddy.

Someone get him a laxative, STAT!

Someone get him a laxative, STAT!

Uriel is such a dick, showing up to remind Sam of the upcoming anniversary of the deaths of his mother and girlfriend. Use your psychic powers on this chump and see what happens.

Dick.

Dick.

QUOTABLES

DEAN: “Yeah, well, if you were a six-hundred-year hag and you could choose any costume to come back in, wouldn’t you go for a hot cheerleader? I would. Mmm.

DEAN: “Well are you gonna figure out a way to find this witch or are you just going to sit there fingering your bone?”

DEAN: “Zombie-ghost orgy, huh? Well, that’s it. I’m torching everybody.
