6x01: Exile On Main Street ~ Review  
So, September 24th finally arrived and we got to see the s6 premiere of Supernatural! Overall, I enjoyed it and was beside myself with happiness at seeing Jared & Jensen again. ♥

  • Domestic!Dean = adorableness. It was so sweet to watch him be a family man. Making breakfast, working a regular job and spending quality time with Ben. I thought Jensen did a great job at playing a softer Dean, but still seeing his rough edges and past present.


  • Sammy, Sammy, where did that sweet and gentle soul go? I realize he'd been down under in the cage with Lucifer and would not be the same, but it was still a shock to see how much he truly has changed. :( I know this was only the first episode and I'm hoping that we'll see some of the old Sam come through as the season progresses (I hope). Hasn't he sacrificed enough? If someone had the power to bring him back, the least they could do was make him forget what he went through in Hell.


    I understand that we don't know what/who brought him back, so it's difficult to speculate what they did it for. There was just something off about Sam. I was so happy to see another hug between the brothers, but it seemed as though he barely hugged Dean back. *heart breaking* I'm not complaining and have no intention of dissing the show, it's writers or anything else. I am just mourning the loss of my normal Sammy.


  • I DO NOT like the Campbell clan at all. It was a nice idea to bring more family into the picture, but something about them just doesn't sit well with me. Sam and Dean have always been on their own and they are all the family each other needs. I don't trust Grandpa Samuel either. He seems to have other agendas of his own and it worries me.


  • I completely understand why Sam & Bobby didn't let Dean in on anything. They both love and care about him, and desperately wanted him to have a chance at a real life. I can understand the feeling of betrayal from Dean as well though. As nice as the life he's carved out with Lisa & Ben, it's obvious that he would have chosen being with Sam and continuing to hunt alongside his brother. It was so touching how much Dean missed and wanted Sam back in his life. ♥


  • The part that got me the most was towards the end, when Sam wanted Dean to come with him and he refused to leave Lisa & Ben. It's understandable, but I still could hardly bear it when he wouldn't go with Sam. The fact that he tried to give him the Impala broke my heart too. I'm glad Sam did not take it. Unless they are both driving around in that car, together, it should stay where it is!

In conclusion, I have rather mixed feelings so far. Even though I'd read most of the spoilers and sort of knew what to expect, to actually see it play out, really hit me in the gut. Just to be clear, I will never give up on this show, EVER! I am taking each episode as it comes and trying to stay positive that the writers know what they're doing, and things will play out the way they are supposed to. I love this show too much to ever let it go. ♥

Not to be rude hon but could you put that under an lj cut? Even if we don't read it on purpose some people could read stuff they don't want to :-/

Sorry. I did put "spoilers ahead" in the subject line so people would know.
Heatherjadedlioness on September 26th, 2010 08:51 am (UTC)
I know but it's easy to miss that and it's only polite to make sure others on your friends list don't get spoiled.
Kristin: Summer » Rainbowkristypadalecki on September 26th, 2010 09:24 pm (UTC)
Okay. I've added the lj cut.

"I DO NOT like the Campbell clan at all."

I think nobody does!

I agree with you about everything that you said.
I understand Dean's reaction in the end not wiling to go with Sam, he felt betrayed. And Sam seems so misterious to me, after all this time I think I don't know him well.


Loved your icon!

Sam is definitely off somehow. I hope he'll be able to show some emotion as the season goes on.
savedean: sam close upsavedean on September 26th, 2010 02:49 am (UTC)
I'm really worried about Sammy as well! And the hug! My heart breaks with you. Sammy didn't seem to hug him back at all.

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE??! D:
*is going crazy*
Kristin: Spn (1x17) » “Who's Awesome?”kristypadalecki on September 26th, 2010 09:27 pm (UTC)
I'm sure Sammy is not himself after all he went through in Hell. I hope he will be able to open up more and show some emotions again soon!

Love your review, hon :)

You know I feel pretty much the same way. I'm worried about Sam and I really hope that a part of him isn't just gone forever :( I hope that once he and Dean get back to working together (and they really have to), things will get better. I wonder if he's just emotionally detached to keep himself from crumbling after whatever he went through in Hell. If the dam finally breaks, maybe he'll get some of that old Sammy back. I'm really hoping for it.

I don't trust the Campbell clan either. Something is just off with them and I wouldn't doubt that Grandpa is stringing Sam along.

It just seems like so many mysteries thrown at us at once and we're left wondering just what the heck is up with everything. Hopefully we'll get some good answers as the season continues!
Kristin: Spn (2x02) » Sammykristypadalecki on September 26th, 2010 09:30 pm (UTC)
Thanks!

I am sure Sam is emotionally detached from what he went through in Hell. Plus living an entire year without Dean probably didn't help matters. I hope he's able to break down that wall he's built up and show some of the old Sammy we know and love. ♥

I think that Grandpa Samuel is up to something bad!

I am looking forward to next week's episode though and sticking with it. :)
jessm78: Supernatural: Puppy Sam (from ELAC)jessm78 on September 26th, 2010 10:21 pm (UTC)
You're welcome. :)

That's exactly what I was thinking. Hopefully in time he'll break down that wall and things won't seem as strained. I just read a fic that deals with this so well. I recc'd it over at my LJ. I really hope we get to see something like this in the actual show.

Me too! That whole family doesn't sit well with me at all.

Yay! Me too.
Kristin: Spn (s2 promo) » “I Support the Mop”kristypadalecki on September 28th, 2010 12:06 am (UTC)
I hope that is the way the writers will take it. I will definitely check out that fic you recc'd too! :)

Of couurse, we don't give up our show and i'm sure we'll get squee again in the next weeks.

I have hope and will never stop watching!! ♥

The Campbells were so rude for starters. And creepy. And they took the djinn which was weird. :/

I agree, they should totally be driving the Impala together! ♥♥♥ It's just too much history there to just give it up or you know. For one of them to drive it alone. It's the Winchester car. <3
Kristin: Spn (5x22) » Sam/Deankristypadalecki on September 26th, 2010 09:32 pm (UTC)
I don't care for the Campbells at all! I hope they split from Sam and Dean soon.

I am counting on seeing them driving in the Impala again soon. :D

hey bb!
finally we have our brothers back with us. :)

If you read my review you know I agree with you on basically everything.

I liked domesticated!Dean more than I thought I would. But that doesn't mean I don't want him to be back with Sam as soon as possible. XD

Sam is really different. It's hard to get used to it. I hope that with the help of Dean he will start to let some emotions in soon. :/

the Campbells have to fuck off already!

*hugs*
Kristin: J² » 100th Episode Partykristypadalecki on September 26th, 2010 09:34 pm (UTC)
I know, I'm so happy!!

I hope the brothers will stay together soon. It broke my heart at the end when Dean wouldn't go with Sam. :(

I can't get used to Sam being so different, it's just so wrong. I'm hoping he'll let his guard down and open up to Dean soon!

Amen, I can't stand the Campbells.

*hugs back*

I hope you're right. I realize Sam has been through quite a lot this past year, but I don't think I can stand a whole season of Sam acting so different! Hopefully he will eventually open up to Dean and let those walls come down.
Krissy: Supernatural: Dean: Adorkable!ghostpiano on September 26th, 2010 06:30 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure what I think of the premiere yet. I think I'm just a little indifferent at the moment. It just wasn't quite as powerful as I was expecting of the show, I guess. But I have hope the rest of the season will be awesome as usual. :)

Sam seemed really odd to me, too. Like he was trying to be perfectly normal, and unless you weren't familiar with his normal, he probably would seem fine from the outside. But there was a very subtle hint at something being off. I'm very curious to see if they'll unearth more about what happened to him.
Kristin: Jensenkristypadalecki on September 26th, 2010 09:38 pm (UTC)
I know. I'm feeling that way too. I am definitely not giving up on it though. This show is too important to me! I am hoping that things will improve between Sam & Dean as the season progresses. ♥

Sam was definitely different and I didn't like it! I have a feeling we'll get glimpses here and there about what happened to him.
Kellie: SPN - Sam||Luciferkelzies on September 27th, 2010 01:24 am (UTC)
Didn't mind domesticated!Dean. Didn't think I would, lol. But Jensen has done a really good job and it's good to see he's still the hunter we all know at heart.

Right? Sammy has changed ay. We might get some of the old Sam back. The speech at the end... what the hell was that? Him saying he's not caring. Huh.

The Campbells are way shifty. Why did they kidnap the Djinn? And make a hasty exit. Hmmm.

I see both sides too, but really do feel sorry for Dean that they kept him out of the loop. He did deserve to know his brother was alive.

Everything will get back on track. Jensen said so himself ;) But I'm sure they would anyway. Can't keep those boys seperated for too long!
Kristin: Jared » L.A. Con '10kristypadalecki on September 28th, 2010 12:08 am (UTC)
Domesticated!Dean was rather adorable, but I am glad to see that he hasn't lost all of his hunting instincts.

I'm so confused by Sammy right now, but I just have to figure it's because of everything he's been through the past year. It broke my heart when he said he didn't care anymore! I want the old Sammy back soon. ♥

I'm looking forward to seeing how the rest of the season plays out! :)

I agree with pretty much everything you said. Sammy is so different right now! And I can't stand it when a Winchester boys hug is off! :/ Maybe the sweet, gentle Sam we all know and love will be back before too long
Kristin: Spn (3x04) » Samkristypadalecki on September 28th, 2010 12:09 am (UTC)
I hope you're right!! I need more sweet, caring Sammy back ASAP. ♥
