Know The Snow (And Other Hunger Games Movie News)

Today we got another big piece of casting news for The Hunger Games movie! Donald Sutherland will play the evil President Snow. i never really thought of him as a possibility but now that i'm kinda forced to since he'll be playing him and whatnot, i gotta tell ya, i don't hate it. In fact i think he pulls off that whole charming yet kinda creepy vibe really well. So i think that he'll make a great addition to the cast.

In other casting news, Nelson Ascencio has been cast to play Flavius while the role of Venia goes to Kimiko Gelman. The Avox girl whom Katniss meets in the Capitol has also been cast. She'll be played by Amber Chaney.

And lastly, here are some ALLEGED photos of Jennifer Lawrence from the Hunger Games set. She's wearing a blue dress which i find a little odd cos i don't really remember Katniss wearing dresses except when designed by Cinna. And this one looks kinda Dorothy Gale to me. Prim (or the actress that plays her) looks to be in one of the pics so i'm assuming it's when they were still together in District 12. WAiT A FUCKiNG MiNUTE! Didn't Katniss borrow a dress from her mother when she was setting out for the Capitol? Am i just making this up? Remembering it wrong? Damnit, i need to read these books again! 

Well what do you think of our President? The other characters? And what about those ALLEGED photos? Dish it up in the comments section, guys.

The Super Nostalgic Book Flashback Challenge: Round 5 Part 2 Reviews

Shit has been going down in Stoneybrook, y'all. Mysterious shit. And who better to solve a mystery than a group of baby-sitters who fancy themselves detectives. And us! Lets help the BSC get to the bottom of thangs!

EvilEva reviews...... The Baby-Sitters Club Mystery #19: Kristy and the Missing Fortune by Ann M. Martin.

Circa: 1995.

Dissecting The Cover:
Because you can judge a book by its cover!
*The faces say so much on the cover of this one. Lets break it down mug by mug:
-Claudia: "Um, y'all, don't hate me but I've been holding the map upsidedown this whole time. The only treasure here is my fringe-y jacket."
-Jessi: "You mean I dug this tiny hole for nothing?!?! Bitch, I'ma hit you in the face with this trowel."
-Kristy: "Don't worry, Jessi, for I of course have a great idea. I'll dig your puny hole deeper and then we can shove Claudia's soon to be lifeless body in it."
*P.S. Kristy, if you're trying to sneak around unseen in the middle of the night (or 10pm) you might wanna choose something a little less vibrant than that bright ass red turtleneck and hat that you're wearing.

Lets Review:
One wintry blahbiddy-blah day, Kristy finds a book in Watson's library about Ye Olde Stoneybrook and finds the name Christina Thomas in it. Which is totally cray cray cos it is so close to Kristy Thomas it is UNBELIEVABLE!
Turns out Christina Thomas disappeared like forever ago and took her inheritance with her. Where did she go? No one knows. That's why this is a MYSTERY!
So because this woman's name is so close to her own (and because her greedy ass is hoping to find the missing fortune) Kristy starts researching Christina's life. 
Soon Kristy finds out that Christina's home and the arboretum that Jessi is coincidentally trying to save are one and the same! So the girls recruit the rest of the BSC to help them dig up the flowerbeds so they can find the treasure and then use the money to save the arboretum. 
But all they find is a box full of not money. But Christina did leave behind the lease to the property containing the arboretum. She left the land to the town of Stoneybrook! So now the developers that were trying to buy the land to put up apartments can suck it! The arboretum is here to stay even though no one even knew it was here in the first place. So now we can go back to not enjoying these flowers all year long! And it's all thanks to Kristy and her nosy tendencies! 

Say Whaaat!?!:
And the most ridiculous line in the entire book goes to...
Kristy, for this gem about how she will make her millions since they were unable to find the treasure:
"I guess I'll have to make my millions by baby-sitting instead!"
Yeah. From one baby-sitter to another--- good luck with that, sister.

The Fashion!:
Please enjoy this description of Claudia's stakeout outfit:
She was wearing black jeans, short black cowboy boots, and a black suede jacket with fringe along the back and arms and silver buttons that looked like those old Indian-head nickels.
Even while technically committing a crime Claudia Kishi does NOT do inconspicuous.
And I know that you're dying to know what Claud wore to the arboretum celebration:
Claudia was wearing a tuxedo, with a huge pink rose in her lapel.
I.... I don't even know what to say. Every time a Claudia ensemble is described it's like a gift from Baby Jesus himself. I just love it! 

Bonus Shizz!:
OMG! There is an ad for The Baby-Sitters Club Mystery Game! You have to use the special Mystery Case card to pick WHO did it, WHAT was involved, WHY it happened, and WHERE it happened. Then dial secret words on your Mystery Wheels to add to the story! Travel around the Stoneybrook map gameboard to uncover your friend's secret word clues! Finish four baby-sitting jobs and find out all the words to win. 
Idon't even remotely know what the fuck ANY of that means but.... I WANTS it!

EvilEva reviews...... The Baby-Sitters Club Super Mystery #2: Baby-Sitters Beware by Ann M. Martin. 
Circa: 1995.

Dissecting The Cover:
*This isn't any ordinary mystery--- It's a Super Mystery!
*There's a girl I'm guessing to be Kristy cos she's got a fucking turtleneck on, and a girl who I imagine is Stacey because of her wavy, voluminous, blonde hair, and they are scared, y'all. They're making gasp-y faces while clutching a little boy. It should be noted that the little boy is looking in the complete opposite direction as the girls. So this little idiot isn't even looking at what he's supposed to be scared of. 
*There's a creep wearing a black leather jacket, black knit hat and black leather gloves. So their stalker is OJ Simpson? Sorry. I always think of OJ when I see black leather gloves. Maybe he could get some kind of endorsement deal. You know, when he gets out of prison. And if there's a glove company that would want to hire a spokesperson/murderer. 
*The tagline reads: 
Someone's stalking the BSC!
God what a tedious job that must be. Hey look they're.... baby-sitting.... again.

Lets Review:
Oh my God, y'all, we get to go skiing at Shadow Lake! Doesn't that sound like a shit ton of fun?!?! But uh oh. All of a sudden totally not fun stuff starts happening to the BSC.
Like Stacey nearly gets her ass run over!
Kristy has a rock thrown through her window and someone spray paints a threatening message on her door!
Someone even sets Claudia's trash cans on fire!
However, while all this shizz is super scary, the girls refuse to let it ruin their trip to Shadow Lake.
That is until they start getting full-on stalked there to!
Stacey gets stuck on the chairlift!
Kristy's skis get broken and placed in a menacing fashion!
And Claudia nearly falls down a dangerous ski slope!
Meanwhile, back in Stoneybrook, Mary Anne and the less important members of the BSC, namely Mallory, Jessi, Logan and Shannon, are trying to figure out who in the world could be so pissed at the BSC that they would vaguely, semi, not really try to kill them.
All signs point to Karl Tate, a no good dognapper that the BSC helped send to prison.
But as it turns out it isn't Karl Tate. It's his son Woodie! He's beyond pissed off at the girls for sending his dad to prison and making their family *shudder* poor. Now he's gonna like kill or rape or just yell and wildly gesticulate at them. Oh noes! We need to tell the girls they're in an assload of trouble. But the phones are down! And there's a blizzard!
It's ok though cos eventually Nancy Drew enthusiast, Claudia, figures it out and Woodie falls in a frozen-over lake. The cops fish his ass out and take him to jail. 
Kristy, Claudia, Stacey and Abby return to Stoneybrook and the BSC, safe to meddle in other peoples lives once more. Yay! 

Say Whaaat!?!:
And the most ridiculous line in the entire book goes to...
Claudia, for uttering these words about a man whose home was broken into but he denied it and didn't allow the cops to investigate his house:
"Maybe he has something inside the house he doesn't want the police to see," Claudia suggested. "Like... like stolen art."
While the art thief ratio is right up there with the divorced parents ratio in Stoneybrook, I'm fairly certain you are wrong on this one, Claud. He's probably just got a meth lab or something in there. Or maybe he's one of those people that grow marijuana in his closet. Either way, Nancy Drew would be ashamed of you for that suggestion.
And also to Mary Anne, for being a dumbass:
"Have you and, uh, James, been bothering me and my friends? I mean, two of my friends saw you, and we're all members of a club together, the Baby-Sitters Club, and some strange things have been happening to us, and I wondered..."
Mary Anne, you are so stupid. What kind of idiot would go up to someone as they're being cuffed and taken to a police car, and basically say "Uh, hey, my friends saw you commit that crime and scary shit has been happening to us ever since so I was wondering if you were the one trying to scare us and if you weren't well I've just given you all the information you'll need if you'd like to seek your revenge on us in the future."
Nancy Drew would spit in your face, Mary Anne.

Those Were The Days:
Here's a new category for the Super Nostalgic Book Flashback Challenge. I found  something that I semi-squealed with delight over when I read it cos it took me back to my childhood:
That day we decided to make cookies. (But Shea, who is nine, and Jackie weren't calling them cookies. They were calling them Edible Slammers, after their Pogs and Slammers games---
OMG! I LOVED playing pogs! I probably had a hundred of them. Sparkly, holographic, glittery! They were very popular with me and my friends. I still have most of them in my Keorppi pencil box, including my Hypno Slammer which is An Official Bart Simpson Fun Toy and which won me many a pog battle!

Bonus Shizz!:
This book was written from the different POVs of all the baby-sitters. Thus I was finally introduced to Abby Stevenson. Up until now I hadn't come across her in my BSC dealings. What do I think of Abby? Well. I hate her. She's like the worst character in the BSC universe. I don't think I'll be checking out any Abby books from the library. In fact, I'd kinda rather jump into the frozen-over lake with criminal dipshit Woodie.

That's all the nostalgia I can cram into this month. Be sure to come back next month when I'll be getting my Christopher Pike on!

Supernatural Shakedown: Season 6 Episode 22 OR Sams I Am

It's Friday night. It's 9 o clock. So sit your Ass-butt down and lets watch some Supernatural!

Episode #22: The Man Who Knew Too Much.
Previously on Supernatural...
Shit. Went. Down. Lisa and Ben no longer remember Dean. Balthy's on Team Winchester and working as a double agent against Cass. Cass and Crowley are still working together to find purgatory but you can tell they're starting to get on each others nerves and something is about to give in that relationship. And we were introduced to a horror novel writer named H.P. Lovecraft who opened a portal and caused a lot of people to die and might have known where to find purgatory. The thing he let out of the portal? It was Bobby's friend Ellie. She's from purgatory and has been trying to keep that door shut for thousands of years. And Cass just kidnapped her.

It's Blair Witch Sammy!
It's like shaky camera angles. What is going on?
The police are after him. Sam hides in an alley.
He breaks into the back of a bar. There's some chick working there. Sam is super flustered.
The bar chippy asks Sam what his name is. Sam says he doesn't know. He can't remember anything.
Glass shattering. Supernatural logo. Showtime!

Sam says that he woke up on a park bench (lucky park bench!), that the cops tried to wake him but he knocked their asses out.
He tells Bar Chippy that he feels like there's somewhere he's supposed to be. Sam finds a book on a shelf. It's by Lovecraft.
Sam has mini-flashbacks.
Bar Chippy is super concerned about Sam.
Sam sees some motel in his flashes. He looks it up on the internet and finds out it's only two towns over.
Bar Chippy says that she'll drive him as he is freaking her the fuck out with his flustered flashbackery.
They drive to the motel. Sam suddenly knows which room he would pick.
They go to that room and Sam picks the lock with Bar Chippy's credit card.
Visa--- It's everywhere you wanna be!
There are newspaper clippings all over the walls. Bar Chippy finds all of Sam's various alias badges, licences, etc.
There's a clipping with Ellie's picture on it. It says that she's missing.
Sam has a flash and falls to the floor.
Now he's with Dean and Bobby walking down an alley somewhere.            
They find Ellie. She's bleeding.
It seems to open up purgatory they'll need one cup virgin's blood (not extra virgin-just virgin.) and one cup purgatory native's blood. Mix well and then open purgatory carefully.
So someone has already succeeded in getting their hands on purgatory native's blood. So virgins beware!
Aw. Ellie dies.
Cass appears. He tells them to go home so he can deal with Raphael.
Cass tells them that he'll save Sam but only if they stand down. Dean's all save Sam from what.
Cass touches Sam's beautiful head. Sam is out.
Sam is back with Bar Chippy. He remembers Bobby's name and looks him up in a book to find his address.
Bar Chippy says mm-kay this is where i get off.
Sam finds the Impala keys but Bar Chippy doesn't feel right about letting him just take off in his fainty state. Ok, look Bar Chippy, you better not be angling to try to sleep with my boo or shit is gonna get intense. You hear me?!?
All of a sudden someone takes a shot at them!
Holy shizz! It's Sam!
But now Sam is in Bobby's panic room unconscious.
Dean is calling his name but Sam is unresponsive. What the fuck is going on?!?!?
Commercial break.

Bobby says that Cass let down the dam in Sam's head and now it's all helled up in his noggin.
Dean's gonna stay with Sam and Bobby is gonna find Cass.
Sam is back in the Impala with Bar Chippy whose voice sounds like Sophia Bush's and who best not be putting the moves on my man. Bar Chippy is uber concerned/scared.
Dean shines a light in comatose Sam's eye.
The other Sam reacts by flinching and slamming on the brake. He gets out of the car. Suddenly it's daytime. Bar Chippy says that it's been daytime the entire time they've been out gallivanting. 
Suddenly Sam sees something in the woods at the side of the road. He tells Bar Chippy to get back in the car.
Sam goes to the trunk and finds the Winchester arsenal. He gets a gun and heads into the woods.
He's hunting....... himself?
This Sam takes the gun from the Original Sam. He explains that Sam is dreaming. When Cass took down his hell wall he fell to pieces. Oh this is Soulless Sam.
Soulless Sam is making fun of my baby!
Original Sam hauls ass. Soulless Sam shoots at him.
It's some serious Sam-on-Sam violence going on.
Original Sam hides behind a tree.
Soulless Sam shoots behind the tree. But it was just Original Sam's jacket.
Now Original Sam is behind Soulless Sam and he shoots him.
Soulless Sam says if you think i'm bad wait til you meet the other one. Soulless Sam is now kaput.
Smoky stuff gets all up in Original Sam.
Back in the panic room, Sam starts twitching.
Now back to Original Sam. He's back to the Impala and Bar Chippy. He tells her that he remembers her.
Flashback! A demon has Bar Chippy. The demon is taunting Sam with Bar Chippy thinking that Sam won't shoot him while he uses Bar Chippy as a human shield. 
But Sam shoots her and tells the demon that he's lost his leverage. 
Back to the side of the road. Bar Chippy has blood all on her shirt now. She told Sam to leave it alone. 
Back to the panic room. Balthy's here with info about Crowley. He's quickly becoming my new fave angel. (You had your chance, Cass!) 
Now on to The Double C Angel/Demon Duo. Crowley gives Cass the virgin blood/purgatory native blood cocktail. 
Cass is rethinking their arrangement. He's thinking perhaps Crowley shouldn't get anything. 
Crowley's all whaaaaaa?!?!? 
Cass tells Crowley to either flee or die. So Crowley flees. 
Now Sam is in some creepy candlelit room. There's someone at a desk. 
It's another Sam! And he's all bloody!
Original Sam asks which Sam this is.
Thing 2 says he's the Sam that remembers hell.
Now for another commercial.

Bobby's packing up his hunting equipment.
Back in the panic room Dean leaves Sam a piece of paper with where he and Bobby will be along with a gun next to him. Dean leaves to go after Crowley.
Back to the Sams. Hell Sam is the last piece. Sam has to piece himself back together so he can wake up. He has to listen to what Hell Sam has to tell him.
Hell Sam picks up a knife.
Original Sam holds up his gun. Hell Sam tells him he's not gonna fight him and hands him the knife.
Original Sam knifes Hell Sam. Blue smoky stuff abounds.
Sam thrashes around back at the panic room.
Cass calls Balthy. He tells him that Dean is on his way. It seems they have a Judas in their midst. Balthy tries to pretend he knows shit-all.
Cass tells Balthy that it's a difficult time because all of his friends are turning against him.
Then he stabs Balthy in the back! Literally! Balthy angel-explodes. Aw. Pour one out for Balthy y'all. He was a good badass angel.
Dean and Bobby are staking out the place where Crowley and Cass are supposed to be. There are angels on the lookout. 
Suddenly there's a noise. Look, Dementors! 
Dean and Bobby jump in the Impala. 
The impact of the Dementors knocks the Impala upside down.
Dementors descend on Cass' hideout.
Crowley comes in.
Cass puts his hand on Crowley's head trying to get rid of him but it doesn't work.
Crowley's made a new bestie that offers him a certain amount of protection.
Enter Raphael in his black lady suit.
Cass pulls a Scooby rut-row.
More commercials.

Cass is all Raph, you work with demons now?
Raph's all you're doing it. It looked like fun.
So Crowley has made a deal with Raphael.
Crowley tells Cass he has two options- flee or die.
So Cass throws Crowley the blood cocktail and leaves.
Crowley starts Latin-chantin'.
Bobby and Dean enter. They throw a dagger at Raphael but she catches it and sends Bobby crashing down the stairs and Dean goes flying and crashes to the floor.
Sam sees the car and has a hell brain flash.
Crowley finishes his chant but nothing happens.
Cass appears. Ha ha suckas! Cass gave y'all the wrong blood!
Dean and Bobby get up.
Raphael tells Cass to quit playing. Crowley tells Raphael that Cass' jar is empty and he bets that Cass' chant went a lot better than theirs did.
Cass starts glowing all golden-y.
And yet more commercials.

Everyone is super impressed with Cass' golden glow.
Crowley gets the fuck outta there.
Raphael is getting pretty scared.
Holy shit! Cass just snapped his fingers and completely killed Raphael!
Cass says see i saved you, Dean.
Dean tells Cass they need to get all those souls outta him pronto before he pops.
Cass says that Raphael had a lot of followers. He has to punish them all severely now.
Dean pleads with Cass to get rid of the soul juice.
Cass tells Dean he's not his family, that he has no family.
Sam stabs Cass in the back with the angel blade.
Cass just takes it out. He tells them it won't work cos he's not an angel anymore.
He's the new God. And if they don't bow down and profess their love for him he'll have to destroy them.
Bobby's all huh?
Dean's all whaaaa?
Sam's all say what now?
Cass looks smug with his recent promotion.

And that's it, y'all. That's the end of season 6. Holy shizz! Cass is totes going on a power trip. What does this mean for season 7? Is Cass gonna be a baddie now? Are we gonna have to take him down next season? We'll have to find out in the fall. See you then, Superfans!

Supernatural Shakedown: Season 6 Episode 21 OR Everybody Do The Limbo ;)

It's Friday night. It's 9 o clock. So sit your Ass-butt down and lets watch some Supernatural!

Episode #21: Let It Bleed.
Previously on Supernatural...
CASS BETRAYED US!!! He's been working with Crowley (who, p.s. IS ALIVE!) trying to find purgatory. They're all about the souls, people.
We've had a massive death toll this season--- Mama=Gone. Gramps=Done for. Annoying Girl Cousin=See ya. Rufus=*sniff* Pour one out, y'all. Crowley=Thought to be kaput but then CASS BETRAYED US!!! Dean=For a hot second when he was trying to get Sammy's soul back. Ellen and Jo=Brought back but dead again. Lenore our Friendly Neighborhood Vampire=Deader.
There's unrest in heaven. You're either Team Cass or Team Raphael. Looks like it's about to get apocalyptic in this bitch. Again. And Sam might get a little cray cray cos i think his soul walls might be a-crumblin'.

It's March 15th, 1937. It was a dark and stormy night and some dude is typing on a typewriter.
The door creaks open. Typewriter dude goes for his gun.
He opens the door further. No one is there so he closes the door and locks it and then drinks.
Something crashes through his window.
Typewriter dude says "We didn't know. i'm sorry."
And now typewriter dude gets killed.
Glass shattering. Supernatural logo. Showtime!

We're at Bobby's. Cass has stolen a journal from Bobby's house. The journal belonged to an H.P. Lovecraft. He was a horror story writer. He may have known something about purgatory. But we'll never know cos Cass is a thief!
At Lisa's house. She's got a new boyfriend.
OMG, someone just kicked the door in.
Ben hauls ass upstairs. Lisa gets grabbed.
Well Lisa had a new boyfriend. That thing just snapped his neck.
Ben heads for his room and calls Dean. Dean tells him to jump out the window. Any broken bones will be better than whatever is in the house will do to him.
Ben drops the phone. Dean tells him that he's on his way.
Dean calls Ben's name. Crowley answers instead. Oh shit!
Commercial time.
Ooh a preview for The Secret Circle! Another L.J. Smith series made into a TV show. Will it be as good as The Vampire Diaries?

Dean tells Crowley to let Ben and Lisa go.
Crowley tells Dean he's gonna keep Lisa and Ben until Dean agrees to back off.
Then he hangs up.
Uh HELLO!, like Dean would ever back off after finding out about something like that. 
Dean tells Sam and Bobby the bad news.
He's going after them. He tells Sam and Bobby to take care of the Lovecraft bidness. 
But Sam says he's going with him. 
So. How are they gonna find Crowley? 
Lets summon Balthy! 
Sam and Dean tell Balthy that Cass is a doublecrosser. They want Balthy to help them find Crowley. 
Balthy exits stage left. 
Sam suggests maybe possibly calling Cass. Dean is all oh hell no. 
Back to Bobby. And Bobby is all cleaned up, y'all. He's at some Lovecraft nerd's house pumping him for Lovecraft info about a certain date.
Lovecraft Lover tells Bobby that a man sounding a lot like Cass asked him about the same day.
On that day Lovecraft had a dinner party. They were gonna open a portal to see what else was out there.
Lovecraft Lover had letters about the dinner party but they have mysteriously disappeared.
Bobby tells Lovecraft Lover to call him if he finds them and leaves the Lovecraft Lover's nerdy abode.
Bobby calls Sam with the Lovecraft info and tells him that all the dinner guests either died or disappeared within a year but the maid's 9 year old son is still alive and may know something. So Bobby is going to talk to him.
On to Dean. He's in some type of warehouse or somewhere warehouse-y looking and he's killing demons to try to find Crowley's location.
Sam wants to take over cos Dean is kinda going cray cray. But Dean wants to do it himself.
So Sam goes outside and tries to contact Cass. 
Cass is there but in his invisibility trench. Sam walks away. 
Cass is at Crowley's. Cass didn't know that Crowley took Lisa and Ben. He wants to know where Crowley has stashed them but Crowley ain't talking. He tells Cass to go find purgatory. 
Cass is getting an angel message. He goes to meet with Balthy. 
Balthy wants to know if Cass was super really working with Crowley. 
Apparently if Cass finds purgatory and soaks up all those souls he could explode and take half the planet with him. 
However, Cass says this isn't gonna happen. 
Well. Fine then. Balthy's in.
Back to Bobby's research project.
He's visiting a nuthouse.
Bobby is interviewing the maid's son from the dinner party but he's an old man now.
He tells Bobby that that night at the party, Lovecraft and the guests opened a door and something came out. It was invisible. No one else could see it. But the maid's son could. It went in his mother and she disappeared. Then one by one the guests started dying.
Bobby says that he's sorry about what happened to his mom. The old guy asks if Bobby would like to see a pic of her and hands it to him.
Bobby's OMGing.
Back to Dean's Interrogation Room Of Doom.
Dean is giving the whatfor to a demon.
The demon breaks through his restraints and sends Dean flying. He crashes into a van. (ok seriously. Where the hell is Dean?) The demon advances on Dean but Cass pops up and kills the demon.
Here are some more commercials.

Dean tells Cass that he didn't ask for his help.
Cass tells Dean that he had no idea that Crowley would take Lisa and Ben.
Dean says that he doesn't trust a word outta Cass' mouth now.
Cass promises that he'll find Lisa and Ben and bring them back. And he asks Dean to stand down.
But Dean is so not gonna stop until he finds Lisa and Ben and gets rid of Crowley.
Cass leaves.
Back to Bobby's adventure.
Bobby's at a cabin in the woods. He knocks on the door. Ellie answers the door. (Ivy from Passions, remember?)
Bobby tells Ellie that he knows who she is. Would you mind filling the rest of us in, Bobby?
She's the dame in the picture. The old man's mommy.
Bobby wants to know why Ellie didn't tell him she was from purgatory.
Ellie's all yeah my bad.
Ellie has been trying to keep the door to purgatory closed. Bobby tells her that Cass is gonna come after her.
Back to Sam, pouring himself a drink. Perhaps he's playing our drinking game. ;)
Enter Balthy.  He tells Sam that he's on Team Winchester now cos Cass is a big ol' lying liarface that lies like a dog.
Dean's here.
Balthy says he asked Cass some questions and didn't like the answers he got. So now he'll be their double agent. He says that he found where Crowley is keeping Lisa and Ben.
Angel powers activate! Balthy takes them to Crowley's hideout. And much like a banana, Balthy splits.
Dean ganks a demon. The boys split up.
Corridors of Doom! Oh how we've missed you!
Oh no! Some demon jacks Sam. They lock him in some kind of cave.
Lisa and Ben are tied up in a room. Two demons walk in.
Suddenly there's a commotion in the Corridors of Doom.
The demons go to check it out. It's Dean!
He kicks some demon ass and unties Lisa and Ben.
But Lisa has a knife! And she's pointing it at Ben's throat! And she says this brat isn't going anywhere!
Damn you, commercials!
Ooh. On second thought yay commercials. It's the trailer for the new show Ringer starring none other than Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar! Can't wait for that one. i'm gonna post all the trailers for the upcoming shows that i'm excited about soon so stay tuned for that. Now back to the Shakedown.

Lisa is fucking with Ben and Dean. Damn! She is being a huge biatch.
Dean throws holy water in her face. She lets go of Ben.
Dean starts with the Latin-chanting.
Lisa attacks him and grabs his throat.
She knows how to really hurt the boys. She stabs HERSELF! She says if Dean exercises her now then Lisa will just be a dead meatsuit.
Dean finishes the chant anyway. The demon is done for. And now Lisa is in trouble.
Dean tells Ben to get the gun and the knife and to shoot anything that comes at them.
Dean finds Sammy and frees him.
Everyone starts running for the exits so that they can save Lisa.
Sam gets a car and hauls ass to, i guess in normal sitches a hospital, but this is the Winchesters so who knows where they're taking her.
More commercials while Lisa's life hangs in the balance.

Ok. They took her to the hospital.
Dean and Ben look over her. Dean tells Ben he's sorry. Ben leaves. Cass enters.
Dean doesn't want Cass there.
Cass tells Dean that he's not there for him. He puts his hand on Lisa's forehead and heals the shit out of her.
Dean tells him thank you and that he wishes that it changed anything. Cass says he knows.
Dean asks for Cass to give him one more thing.
Cut to Lisa in the hospital bed with Ben in the chair next to her. She's awake!
Ben tells Lisa that they were in a car accident. That she hit her head but she's ok now.
Dean knocks on the door.
Ben asks who are you? WHAT!?!?
Dean tells them that he's the one that hit them with his car. Oh noes!!! Cass erased their memory of Dean! Aww!
Dean leaves. Aw, he's crying, y'all!
Sam is waiting outside the hospital.
Sam doesn't think what Dean had Cass do to Lisa and Ben's memories was right. Dean tells Sam if he mentions them to him again he'll break his nose.
They drive off.
Back to Ellie's cabin. She's walking to her car to get the fuck outs o' here.
Cass is there. He touches her shoulder. And they're gone!

Next time on Supernatural...
It's the final episode of season 6, y'all. Get ready!

More Hunger Games Movie Casting News

So a big decision was made today. Cinna was cast. And who did they get to play him?
Lenny Kravitz.
Wait. What?
Yes i know that his name had been tossed around a few weeks ago as a possible contender for a role in the movie but honestly i thought it was just a rumor. i didn't really think that he would actually get a role. i mean, he's Lenny Kravitz for fuck's sake!
i mean, that's just such a random choice, no? What is going on over at Lionsgate? First the Peeta/Gale debacle and now this! i know one thing, if Lenny rocks his famous dreads i will totes no longer be on Team Cinna!

In other casting news, the role of Peeta's stylist, Portia, will be played by Latarsha Rose. And Octavia, a member of Katniss' prep team, will be played by Brooke Bundy. Here's a pic of those chicks:

i ain't mad about this decision.

 And lastly, here's some interesting news. Claudius Templesmith will be played by Dobby the house elf. Or at least by the guy that voiced him; British actor Toby Jones.

So those are the new cast members (so far) for this week. What do you guys think? (Especially about the Lenny decision.) There are only a few roles left so who do you think we'll see next? Will they announce who will play Madge or Greasy Sae or the Avox girl?
Or will they hit us with the biggie--- President Snow? 
Tell me your dream cast or if you're happy with the reality cast thus far. (Lenny Kravitz? Really?) Dish it up in the comments, people!

The Super Nostalgic Book Flashback Challenge: Round 5 Part 1 Reviews

It's almost summertime! What better way to celebrate than by taking a road trip to visit our favorite Stoneybrookians! Lets hop in the Junk Bucket and head to Connecticut, y'all!

EvilEva reviews...... The Baby-Sitters Club Special Edition Reader's Request: Logan Bruno, Boy Baby-Sitter by Ann M. Martin.

Circa: 1993.

Dissecting The Cover:
Because you can judge a book by its cover!
*Ooh, this book is a "Reader's Request." Apparently a lot of middle-schoolers wanted to know more about handsomepants Logan Bruno.
*This book is from the early 90s which would explain why Logan seems to be getting his fashion cues from Zack Morris. I mean, shiny white hightop sneakers, a striped Polo-esque shirt, light blue blue jeans? Shouldn't you be out macking on Kelly Kapowski right now?
*Is that one kid wearing Zubaz pants whilst "raising the roof?"
*Um, Logan? You might wanna check on that little girl. I mean, I understand that y'all are enjoying a rousing game of Twister but, to me, her arm looks beyond twisted and verging into broken territory. Unless she's practicing her America's Next Top Model broke-down doll pose. If that's the case then she totally nailed it!
*The tagline reads:
Is Logan too cool for baby-sitting?
Um, unequivocally- NO! No he is not.

Lets Review:
Logan is sick of being teased for totes screwing up last weeks track meet and for being a baby-sitter that also happens to have a penis. So he's semi-stoked when the school's ruffians, The Badd Boyz, take up for him. He starts to hang out with the Boyz but becomes concerned when things start to get a little fishy. Like when kid's lockers are being broken into and their stuff is being stolen.
Then the Badd Boyz find out that Logan knows the man that owns the local music store. And, y'all, they rob that guy! They steal a whole box of Nicky Cash (who is the 90s Stoneybrook equivalent to Justin Bieber) CD's!
Oh noes! And Logan was with them while they did it! Oh noes yet again! And now the Badd Boyz are being, well, bad boys, threatening Logan if he even thinks about ratting them out. When Logan catches wind of the Badd Boyz plan to rob the same music store again, he can't just sit idly by. So Logan goes to the police, they set up a sting operation and catch these evil EiGHTH GRADERS in the act! The Badd Boyz get hauled off to eighth grader prison whatever that is and we learn An Important Lesson: Don't steal and don't join a gang.
But if you're going to steal and the name of your gang has the word bad in it then it would probably behoove you not to filch pussy music unless you want your ass beat by your death metal loving gang leader. Just a suggestion.

Say Whaaat!?!:
And the most ridiculous line in the entire book goes to...
Logan for his description of the Badd Boyz:
The Badd Boyz. I'm serious. That's what these guys call themselves. They're like the junior version of a high school gang. They like to hang out in the shadows of the school, looking bored. Sometimes they smoke cigarettes, sometimes they work on cars belonging to the older gang members.
Is it just me or does this sound like the lamest gang EVER? I'd be interested to know what the initiation is...
"Alright, listen up newbs. Your first task is to take that there candy from that there baby. Careful. He's a biter."

The Fashion!:
Logan on Claudia's "wild" style:
She can make weird clothes look cool. Once she went to school with a rattle in her hair, like a barrette. Another time she wore bell-bottomed pants exactly like ones I've seen in these embarrassing old photos of my parents in college.
Oh Claudia. You never cease to amaze me with your crazy ass fashion ideas.
Now here's Logan describing the Badd Boyz signature look:
Both D and Remo were wearing T-shirts with cigarette packs rolled up in the sleeves.
So they're either gonna cut a bitch or put on a fabulous production of Grease! It is the word after all.

Bonus Shizz!:
We can join the new ONLINE Baby-Sitters Club! OMFG, the BSC is getting all digital on our asses!

EvilEva reviews...... The Baby-Sitters Club #51: Stacey's Ex-Best Friend by Ann M. Martin.
Circa: 1992.

Dissecting The Cover:
*Ha ha, lets make satellites and molecules out of prunes and pretzels! This is equal parts educational and hilarious!
*Claud is rocking a side-pony, y'all!
*The tagline reads:
Is Stacey's friend Laine super mature or just a super snob?
Well considering that she looks like the irritated teacher that's forced to deal with these kid's prune/pretzel shenanigans even though she's the same age, my vote is for super snob.

Lets Review:
Stacey is so psyched that her New York bestie Laine, is coming to Stoneybrook for a visit. They are going to have sooo much fun! Except when Laine finally arrives she acts like a huge diva-bitch that's too good for sleepovers, Stoneybrook and the BSC! Cos Laine has changed, y'all. She has a BOYFRIEND! And he's 15! And she drinks seltzer now. Seltzer! That's practically vodka! Stacey's not so sure she's down with this new Laine that seems juiced up on Haterade. And Laine makes things even worse when she totally ruins the Valentine's Day dance by being a snobby snot to her date Pete whom we'll never hear about again so you can see why we care so deeply about his hurt feelings. So Stacey does the only logical thing there is to do--- kick girlfriend to the curb. The curb of New York! Where she belongs!
Now Stacey can have fun with her real friends. Hooray! Lets celebrate with a Valentine's party in a barn!

Say Whaaat!?!:
And the most ridiculous line in the entire book goes to...
Stacey when describing Laine's outfit when they pick her up at the train station:
She was hard to miss, considering she was wearing a jean coat with a fur collar (I sincerely hoped the fur was fake), black capri pants edged in lace, very chic black ankle boots, and on her head, a brilliant red over-sized beret.
Let me get this shit straight, Stace. Claudia can wear A RATTLE as a barrette but a jean jacket with a fur collar if too crazazee for you to comprehend? Perhaps you have been in Stoneybrook too long.

The Fashion!:
This is the "perfect" outfit Stacey wore to pick up Laine:
---a purple shirtwaist top over flowered leggings, my cowboy boots, a purple hair ornament made from shoelaces, and long dangly silver earrings.
OMG, do y'all remember those shoelace hairbows?! Aw. Pour one out for the shoelace hairbows.

Bonus Shizz!:
It's your 500th chance to join The Baby-Sitters Club Fan Club! You get a camera, a photo album, a diary, note cards, stickers, pencils, posters, official BSC newsletters, keepsake shipper, oh and uh Bragging Rights! For the low price of $8.95 (plus $2 shipping and handling.)
Ooh, there's a new ad! It's for G*I*R*L magazine. It's where you can get the scoop on The Baby-Sitters Club, plus you can enjoy articles on handling stress, turning dreams into great careers, making and keeping best friends, and the latest in movies, books, music and sports! 6 issues for only $15!
Goddamnit! This special offer ends July 1, 1996!
I'm 15 years too late. I'm a whole Laine's boyfriend too late. Ugh!

Well, I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of this months nostagia and flashbackery fun. Be sure to check back soon for Part 2 in which I will review some BSC Mysteries!

The TBR Back Burner Challenge: Round 5 Reviews

This month I decided to go with two YA books that I have continually heard great things about courtesy of the blogosphere. With this much hype will they live up to it or fall flat? Lets see.

EvilEva reviews...... Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan. 
One night, in a porn shop of all places, Will Grayson meets Will Grayson.
Will Grayson is killing time, trying out his new fake ID after being ditched by his friends.
The other Will Grayson is there to meet the boy of his dreams (and IMs) Isaac, for the very first time.
But when Isaac doesn't show, one Will Grayson will try to help out another with a little assistance from could-be crush Jane and the fabulous, musical-loving, larger than life Tiny Cooper in this story about maybe-love, betrayal, friendship, chance encounters, jazz hands and allowing yourself to fall.

This book is so clever and witty and unique and honest and full of hilarious one-liners!
I liked both Will Graysons. I thought they each had clear, individual voices. And I found both of them to be likable characters.
I liked the concept of a straight character and a gay character essentially going through the same romantic hardships but in different ways. They both want love and want to be loved but at the same time they're afraid of it.
Will #1 likes Jane but he doesn't know if he like likes her. Except he totally does and they're so good together but he doesn't want to ruin what they have by diving into something he may not be ready for. But he also doesn't want to see her with anyone else.
Will #2 has fallen in love with a guy online. But the he finds out the whole relationship was a lie. He's devastated, obvs, until he meets Tiny Cooper. Tiny takes Will under his massive, gay wing and shows him kindness and understanding. And though Will loves Tiny, he's not sure that he's in love with him.
I liked that. It made the characters seem real. Love isn't just wonderful. It's scary. It's a leap of faith. And that's scary. I thought the authors did a spectacular job of showing both sides, the beautiful and the uncertain. 
I also thought it was great that one of the protagonists was gay. So often in books gay characters come in as the sassy stereotype, sashaying into a scene, making some pop culture quip and exiting in a flash of glitter. Will Grayson isn't a glittery guy. He's just a boy that happens to be in love with another boy. I liked that he wasn't just the one-dimensional sidekick that he so easily could have been. 
At it's core, this book is about love--- first love, false love, loving your friends and loving in spite of being afraid. And I loved it!

EvilEva reviews...... The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart.
Frankie Landau-Banks attends a prestigious boarding school known as Alabaster Preparatory Academy. During her sophomore year, Frankie becomes somewhat of a bombshell, nabs the senior boyfriend and discovers a secret society on campus. She also finds out that said boyfriend is a member of said society. And Frankie wants in.
But one thing about the Loyal Order of the Basset Hounds--- it's BOYS ONLY.
And that doesn't really jive with Frankie. So if she can't join 'em, she's gonna take 'em down.
Masterminding a series of intricate pranks, Frankie is gonna make this a year no one will forget!

Dust off your Spice Girls CDs (or if you're A Young, google "Spice Girls," go to iTunes, purchase Wannabe, then promptly crank it!) cos this book is totes Girl Power-y!
Frankie is one smart cookie. She works the Loyal Order of the Basset Hounds like no boy ever could. And yet the boys still won't give her her props. Stupid boys!
Frankie is an awesome protag. She completely outwits the Basset Hounds and relishes in that but she really just wants them to acknowledge her as something more than simply "Matthew's girlfriend." She wants them to see her as a worthy opponent (or ally), that she has a brain and good ideas.
But the boys are stuck in that old school, 1950s, Leave It To Beaver thinking of men make the money, have the ideas, rule the world while the women cook, clean, and make babies. i can't stand that type of thinking. So that kinda kept me from feeling the swoony-swoon for any of these dudes.
And for Frankie to be so brilliant, it kinda annoyed me that she really just wanted these elitist boys approval. i kept thinking "Frankie, you are made of awesome! Don't get bogged down in these nub's opinions of you." 
The story, on the whole, is about not being afraid to grow into who you are meant to be. Frankie says bye-bye to Bunny Rabbit. She is more than Zada's little sister. She is no longer just that adorable sophomore that goes out with Matthew Livingston. She's Frankie Landau-Banks and she's a force to be reckoned with.
Never hide who you are becoming. Whether it's a great debater. An ultimate Frisbee champ. Or a criminal mastermind. ;)

Supernatural Shakedown: Season 6 Episode 20 OR It's A Cass-tastrophe!

It's Friday night. It's 9 o clock. So sit your Ass-butt down and lets watch some Supernatural!

Episode #20: The Man Who Would Be King.
Previously on Supernatural...
Mama got ganked. Crowley's back and he wants all the souls he can get in order to be super powerful. Oh and apparently Cass is working with him now. WHAAAAA?!?!?

Cass is in a forest somewhere. He's talking to someone about good ol' biblical times. The most remarkable of which was the non-apocalypse.
By averting the apocalypse it left freedom and choice for all! Hooray!
But Cass doesn't know if he made the right choice.
Cass says to whoever he is talking to let me tell you my story. i have a feeling things are about to get real flashback-y. Cass is gonna tell us everything, y'all.
Glass shattering. Supernatural logo. Showtime!

Dean is alone in the Impala. Cass enters.
Dean asks if Cass has gotten any word on Crowley and if he's still actually alive and kicking.
Cass tells him that he's still looking. He doesn't understand how Crowley could have tricked him. Cass! Liar liar thou pants are ablaze!
Cass asks Dean if they've found anything yet. Dean tells him no.
Cass asks oh btw where is Sam's sexy ass. Dean tells him that he's in Omaha tracking a djinn and that he's on his way to meet up with Sam right now.
Dean tells Cass to call if he gets into any trouble.
Cass leaves. Dean keeps on trucking.
Now Cass enters some kind of lab. Crowley's there. There's some dude strung up on a contraption. It looks like we're on the set of one of the Saw movies. Is Crowley the new Jigsaw?
Anyhoo, Crowley is doing an autopsy on Mama. Cass asks him what he's found.
Crowley tells him that Eve's brain is dead but somehow she keeps laying eggs. And they are so super gross. Plus Crowley has discovered something else. He picks up a hot spike-y thing and sticks it into Eve's brain.
The strung up dude (who appears to be a vamp) starts flailing and screaming. It seems that Mama's babies can feel whatever is being done to her.
Crowley takes the spike out. He tells Cass that he thinks Eve was the key to finding purgatory and he's pissed that Cass let the Winchesters kill her.
Cass tells him that it was unavoidable.
Crowley tells Cass that he reeks of Impala and he isn't happy that Cass is spending time with his homeboys. But Cass says that he needs to know what the boys know.
Crowley's mad that the Winchesters are gunning for him. So he jams the spike into Eve's brain making the vamp go cray cray.
Meanwhile, Cass is narrating the story. And it is very hard to write this recap while Cass is telling his own recap. So whenever Cass starts talking over the story, i'll hit you with one of these--- Narrator:  Ok. Got that? Good.
Narrator: Cass is conflicted. He still considers himself the Winchesters guardian yet he's kinda working against them by working with Crowley.
Flashback to the birth of the Ass-butt and Adam/Michael's demise. And Cass going kersplat. (See season 5 finale for more deets.) Ok clearly there are gonna be flashbacks a-plenty too. So whenever a flashback comes i'll do this--- Flashback:  Maybe this will help clear up the confusion. Back to the show.
At that point, (the whole going kersplat deal) Cass was done. But unlike Humpty Dumpty someone could put Cass back together again. And so Cass heals a bloody, puffy Dean and brings Bobby back from the dead.
They stopped Armageddon. But it was at a terrible cost. Cass says he knew what he had to do next.
Flashback: Sam is outside Dean's house that he shares with Lisa and Ben. Cass is standing next to him. He's the one that raised Sam up from hell. But he was arrogant in thinking he could bring Sam back minus any complications. Cos turns out, he didn't raise all of Sam.
Flashback: Sam beating the shit out of some guy, the Dean being forced vamp blood smirk, and nearly knifing Bobby to death.
Cass says sometimes you're lucky enough to get a warning and this should have been his.
Back in front of Dean's house, Sam walks passed Cass but doesn't acknowledge that he sees him.
Back to Crowley's Creepy Laboratory.
Crowley begs Cass to just kill the boys already. Cass says no and that if Crowley tries to kill them then he'll just bring them back.
Crowley's all oh no you won't. Not where i'll put them! Ew. What does that even mean?
Cass tells him no again and tells him not to worry about them.
Crowley goes down the laundry list of baddies that the boys have taken care of and thinks that he might be the only one that doesn't underestimate them.
Cass tells him to find purgatory. If he doesn't then they'll both just keep dying again and again for all eternity.
He tells Crowley that the Winchesters won't get to him.
Crowley yells "Let 'em get to me! i'll tear their friggin hearts out!"
At Bobby's. There is some kind of demon in a wife beater under the demons snare, tied to a chair. Bobby is interrogating him.
It seems wife beater demon, Redd, is a hunter. He killed a bunch of vamps. Bobby asks if he took them to Crowley. Redd calls Bobby a redneck and tells him that The King Is Dead.
Bobby chuckles and throws holy water on Redd. Bobby tells Redd that Crowley is alive and that he's been using Redd and other dumb demons as monster hunters. Redd gets mouthy. Sam breaks out a big ass knife and hands it to Bobby.
Dean walks in. He motions for Sam to follow him to the kitchen while Bobby interrogates Redd some more.
Redd is being sassy and unhelpful so Bobby jams the knife in Redd's leg. Redd screams. Bobby goes into the kitchen.
Dean tells them that Cass popped in on him. Bobby asks what Dean told him. Dean tells them that he told Cass they were hunting a monster. Cass is unaware that they're getting closer to Crowley. But Dean doesn't like lying to Cass.
Sam and Bobby aren't sure if they can trust Cass anymore.
Meanwhile, Cass is standing right behind them but i guess he's got on an invisibility cloak or something cos no one is commenting on his presence.
Sam and Bobby hope that they're wrong about him. But Bobby says if they're not then they've got a Superman that's gone to the dark side. We might need to stock up on kryptonite.
Dean looks unconvinced.
Bobby wants to get back to the task at hand. Which is finding Crowley before he can open purgatory. So Bobby goes back to question Redd.
Redd isn't really in a giving mood so Bobby turns the knife in his leg. Redd feels like sharing now. He says that he never met Crowley. He only worked with a dispatcher named Ellsworth.
Now we're at Ellsworth's house. Evidently, Ell is the demon equivalent of Bobby Singer. Instead of various phones, he has various blood bowls.
Two goons walk in dragging a body. Ell tells them to take the body out back.
Narrator: Cass says that these demons would lead the boys to Crowley and Crowley would tear their hearts out. And he can't let that happen.
Cass busts into Ells joint, grabs the goons by their heads and slams them into the floor.
Ell tries to escape his meat suit but Cass shoves his demon smoke back into his mouth, killing him.
Cass did it to protect the boys. Or himself. He doesn't know which anymore.

Dean and Bobby bust into someone's house, guns drawn. Sam enters from the back. All clear.
The place looks clean and demon-less. Oh. i just realized they're in Ellsworth's house. *smacks forehead*
They search the place. Cass is there in his invisibility cloak. He's been hiding and lying and getting rid of evidence and feeling pretty bad about it.
Cut to Cass in heaven. Turns out there are different heavens for every person. Cass is in an autistic man's heaven. It's very garden-y and kite flying-y.
Cass meets his angel peeps there. Hey. Isn't that Lt. Angel Bitch? She thought Cass was destroyed. She says God chose Cass. God brought Cass back to lead them.
Cass is all slow your roll sister. We're free now!
Angels apparently don't "get" the whole freedom concept.
Now Cass is in some swanky house. He's visiting Raphael. There is some crazy pic of George W. in Raph's heaven.
Raphael is calling a meeting. He wants Cass to kneel before him and pledge his allegiance to him. He wants Cass to atone for his bad behavior brought on by too much Winchester-following. Raphael wants to free Lucifer and Michael from the cage. He wants the apocalypse to happen.
Cass won't let Raphael do that.
Raphael is all oh reeeeeeally. Then he puts up his bright light angel hand and sends Cass back to his kite flying heaven with a nose bleed.
Cass starts coughing up blood. Raphael tells him that tomorrow he will kneel or Raphael will kill him and anyone foolish enough to follow him.
Back at demon Bobby's abode. Bobby thinks the place is too clean for demon living. Dean suggests they call Cass. Bobby and Sam aren't so sure. Dean says that after everything Cass has done for them they at least owe him the benefit of the doubt.
So Sam calls Cass. Dean calls Cass.
Cass is behind Dean in his invisibility trench coat (teehee!) He doesn't come because he knew they'd have questions that he couldn't answer.
So now they're back to square one with the Crowley search.
They start to leave to find other monster hunting demons, when suddenly a demon grabs Dean! One throws Sam over a table! One's got Bobby!
Dean's demon tells him Crowley says hi.
Time for some more commercials.

The demon is beating the shit out of Dean.
Narrator: Cass says Crowley sent his best hitmen. Cass has been caught off guard. Now he has to make a decision- to smite or not to smite. Crowley wouldn't like the smiting but dammit! these are his friends.
Cass enters sans invisibility trench and smites the ever loving shit out of the demons.
Dean verbally smites Sam and Bobby for not trusting Cass since he just saved their asses and all. Bobby apologizes. Sam explains that they've been looking for Crowley behind Cass' back. Bobby tells Cass they thought he was working with Crowley. Cass tells them they could have just asked him. They apologize again to Cass for thinking he's a lying liarface that works with demons. Cass is all fuggitaboutit.
Then he says that it's absurd, Superman going to the dark side. He's still just the same ol' Cass. Dean says i guess we can put away the kryptonite then.
Cass says exactly and you are so busted Cass cos they had that convo while you were in your invisibility trench!
Back to Crowley's Creepy Laboratory. Cass busts in. He can't believe Crowley sent his demon hitmen. Crowley's all you kill my hunters, i'll kill your hunters. He tells Cass that the Winchesters are starting to see that Cass isn't good or righteous. Then he calls Cass a whore.
Cass shoves Crowley against a wall, tells him to quit messing with his boos. If he doesn't then their arrangement is over. Cass out.
Narrator: Cass says that Raphael is bigger and stronger than he is and that there is no way he could win against him. So he went to ask his friends for help.
Cut to Dean raking the yard. Cass enters wearing his invisibility trench. Crowley appears with a proposition for Cass.
Cut to some dude taking a number and heading to the back of a line. Cass and Crowley enter. We're in the new and improved hell that Crowley masterminded.
Hell is waiting in line. You ain't just whistling Dixie, mister.
Crowley and Cass talk about what to do about Raphael. Cass isn't strong enough to defeat him alone. Crowley tells Cass that, much like a Gllimore Girl, where he leads the angels will follow. So make an army and attack Raph's ass already. Start a civil war in heaven. Crowley tells him that God loves him and brought him back so that he could be the new sheriff upstairs. It'll take a lot of power though.
The answer to all our problems? Purgatory. There are tons of souls ripe for the taking. The only problem is finding it.
Crowley thinks they can get the bros to help but Cass tells him that Dean is retired and not to be bothered. They could just use Gramps then. They need to get the monsters and the monsters will lead them to purgatory.
Cass wants to know what Crowley gets out of this deal. Crowley wants half the souls.
But Cass thinks this plan will take entirely too long. Crowley says he'll float him 50,000 souls so Cass can impress his angel buddies. And butters him up further by telling him God has chosen him to save us.
Back at Raph's. Cass enters. He goes all bright light angel hand and momentarily blasts Raphael. Cass tells the goons there'll be no apocalypse and that they are either with him or Raphael.
Back to the bros. Dean calls Cass. Cass comes.
Sam tells him that they've figured out a way to track down Crowley. Cass asks what is it.
Bobby's all it's you mofo and throws a match on the floor and it ignites an angel snare. Cass looks all whaaaaaa?!?!?
Damn commercials!

Dean is all you're busted, homeboy. Sam asks Cass how long he's been spying on them. Cass is floundering. Dean tells him to look him in the eye. He wants Cass to look him in the eye and tell him he's not working for Crowley. Cass looks down. Dean has a sad.
Cass tells them he did it to protect them. He can take care of Raphael but he needs them to trust him. Sam wants to know how they can trust him now.
Cass tells them he's still Cass. He's still their friend. He tells Sam that he's the one that raised him from perdition. Sam is all you did a pretty shitty job of it and wants to know if he brought him back soulless on purpose. Cass asks him how he can think that but doesn't really answer the question.
Cass says that Raph will kill them. So he had to make a choice. Dean tells him he made the wrong one. He tells Cass that when the shit hits the fan you work together you don't go and make a deal with the devil.
Suddenly there's a breeze a-blowing.
Cass says he can't turn back now. He tells the boys to run.
The boys haul ass, leaving Cass in his angel snare.
Another commercial.

The dementors descend on demon Bobby's house. Cass is still trapped. Crowley's home! He snaps his fingers and extinguishes the fire circle.
Cass advances on him, saying if he messes with the Winchesters he'll be in a world of trouble.
Crowley's all please, not this same old song and dance again. He says that he won't hurt them and they've proven his point for him.
Crowley sees the new God and the new devil working together in perfect harmony. Cass tells him that's enough. Tells him to get out of his sight.
Crowley's all you're welcome for saving your ass.
As a parting shot he tells Cass that at least he knows what he is. Who is Cass? What is Cass willing to do?
Crowley leaves. Cass has a sad.
Back to Bobby's place. Dean is asleep. He wakes up suddenly. Cass is there.
Dean wants to know what Cass wants.
Cass wants Dean to understand. He's doing this for them. Cass tells him he knows what he's doing.
Dean asks him not to do it. He tells Cass that he's like a brother to him and tells him if he asks him not to do something it's for his own good.
Cass asks him what he'll do.
Dean says he'll do whatever he has to do in order to stop Cass.
Cass says he can't. Dean's just a man. Cass is an angel. Dean tells him he's taken out stronger people before.
Cass tells him he's sorry.
Dean says he's sorry too then.
Cass is gone.
Back to the forest. Cass has been talking to God. He wants to know if he's on the right path. He wants a sign and if he doesn't get one then he'll do whatever he has to.
Wait for iiiiiiiiiiiiiiit...
No sign. Cass hangs his head.

Next time on Supernatural....The 2 hour season finale is coming May 20th.
A bloody Sam is talking to a clean one. Cass asks Balthy if he's with him or not. Crowley's back. Lisa has a knife to Ben's throat. Dean is super concerned. Crowley's talking about breaking contracts. And some building somewhere explodes.
Holy shizz, y'all! Only 2 episodes left. How's it all gonna end? Who will make it to season 7? Will the apocalypse go down yet again? Will we see more of Sam than we have in the past few eps? Grab your popcorn, Ass-butts, cos it's all going down next Friday starting at 8pm!!!
*totally geeks out*
