'what kind of guy would leave a usb key containing highly classified intelligence behind two pieces of gum in a vending machine'
probz the same kind of guy who hides his spare house key under a haphazard cinderblock that literally anyone could kick over by accident
Let’s Fucking Talk About the Way He Sits - NJ Con 2014
honestly? it’s On The Head of A Pin.
just in case you cant remember which one it is (which i will judge you for), its the 16th episode of season 4. its the episode in which uriel wanted dean to torture alastair so he’d spill the beans about whether or not the demons have anything to do with the angel murders.
and just because im in a ranty mood, [fixes knot on tie] [speaks in bussiness-like voice] let me elaborate.
here we have cas walking among cars and causing them to blare their alarms due to the sheer amount of angelic wavelength he was letting out. no matter how many times i watch this scene, it always awes me because this is what reminds me that cas is not human. act like one he probably does, but still not a human whatsoever. this is only the 1st minute of the episode, but i was already in love with it the first time i watched it.
in the 4th minute of the episode, uriel and cas flew in, uriel asked dean to do a job, dean got pissed, yadda yadda yadda, and then cas went all like
but then uriel knowingly glanced at cas and said “and we. DONT. care.” so cas looked at him, felt chastised, and continued to look forward all soldier-like with empty eyes and 100% obedience.
this was the first few signs that gave away how cas has softened. he probably came into that room reminding himself that you shouldnt care, dont say anything, your job here is just to be present, to deliver the news, dont show them you care, but then OOPS he let slip a few words that showed everyone he does. he does care because he knows it’ll be difficult for dean, and to show sympathy is to show care.
and then theres this scene that confirmed it
sy M pAthi e s?? cAre?? aNGel ? ? ? ? does not equal emotions? ?? wha ?? ?
chARGE?? ?? what chARGE? ?? ?
[AMBULANCE SIRENS WAILING IN THE DISTANCE] [THE SOUND OF 1000 NEWBORNS SIMULTANEOUSLY CRYING] [COWS AND GOATS AND HORSES ALL STAMPEDING DOWN THE HILLS WHILE STOMPING ON ALL HUMAN BEINGS UNTIL THEY BLEED AND BLEED AND LOSE ALL THE BLOOD IN THEIR BODIES]
yeah. that pretty much explains why i liked that scene.
okay. moving on. people like to claim cas is weak. people like to think that cas is just there for the fanservice, for the eye candy, wELL GUESS FUCKING WHAT?????
IM STAPLING THAT PICTURE ON YOUR FUCKIN FOREHEAD SO YOU’LL BE REMINDED OF HOW CASTIEL SAVED DEAN GODDAMNED WINCHESTER FROM BEING CHOKED TO DEATH AND THAT’S JUST ONE OF THE FEW THINGS HE HAS DONE TO PROVE HOW HE’S A STRONGASS MOTHERFUCKER AND YOURE JUST A WEAKASS BITCH WITH A WEAKASS ARGUMENT
not to mention he did a hand-to-hand combat too and i tried to take screencaps okay i did but it was too blurry and they turned out like these instead
so yeah. but you get my point.
ALSO LOOK LOOK LOOK
THE SCENE WHERE CAS FIGURED OUT URIEL WAS THE ONE BEHIND ALASTAIR’S FREE OUT-OF-JAIL CARD!! THE REASONS BEHIND ALL THE ANGEL MURDERS!! HE FIGURED IT OUT BY HIMSELF!! WITHOUT ANNA’S HELP!! WITHOUT DEAN’S HELP!! WITHOUT SAM’S HELP!!!! CASTIEL CAN BE SMART TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
also just as an additional bonus, the amazing angles and shots of cas along with cas’ sex hair in this episode dont hurt too. let me grace you with some examples:
KUDOS TO YOU CAMERAMAN, MAKEUP ARTIST, AND HAIRSTYLIST
okay wow this rant got out of hand and there are actually still lots of more reasons behind why this episode is my fave but it would require more typing and i really cant be bothered with that.
On The Head of A Pin? totally got a massive hard-on for it.
