The Third Man: "No, just saying we're different."
A Supernatural Blog - Season 6 Episode 3

"I do the very best that I know how - the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, then what is said against me won't matter. If the end brings me out wrong, then 10 angels swearing I was right would make no difference."  - Abraham Lincoln 

"What people CAN do is very different from what they WILL do." - Anthony Robbins

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

"When men exercise their reason coolly and freely on a variety of distinct questions, they inevitably fall into different opinions on some of them. When they are governed by a common passion, their opinions, if they are to be called, will be the same."  - Alexander Hamilton

"Yeh, I get that. I just don't think I'm getting the whole scoop. You went to Hell, Sam and believe me, I know what that does to a guy."

"To you."


"You know what it does to you. It tortured you, you know. I think it still does, but Dean, I'm okay."

"So you're saying...what? That you're stronger than me?"

"No, just saying we're different."

Sorry this is late. Got started on it earlier in the week, but then real life intervened. Happens. Hee! Plus there is so much GREAT material to ponder over.

Sigh, I have to say, the episodes just keep getting better and better for me and the dialogue above, once again, dialogue that comes at the end of the episode which usually either summarizes things that have happened in the episode with a moving speech or reveals something to ponder, for better or worse, totally succeeded again in doing both and made me sad and shiver at the same time. It's a statement of distinction that truly divides our brothers in many interpretative ways.

"No, just saying we're different."

SamGirls, bear with me as I make one observation that will likely raise hackles for some of you, but know that it's only because on the surface, I repeat, on the surface, this distinction between Sam and Dean has been building all along and doesn't surprise as it's revealed because Sam's evolution seemed to be inevitably going the way where it currently is.

Dean's experience in Hell was different from Sam's. Dean was tortured, he still is tortured by it, Sam was right about that, but Sam, if he was tortured, isn't acting tortured, at least, not on the surface and not in the same way that Dean was tortured. Judging from his measured words, Sam didn't experience Hell in the same way as Dean or wasn't affected in the same way by whatever was done to him, if anything, as Dean was.

A lot of explanations come to mind as to why Sam was either spared the same torture or how he endured it differently. Perhaps it was because Sam was already changed in a way that made his experience from Hell different. We don't know for sure what that change could have been. Some possible clues could be Sam's resurrection in the first place, Azazel's taunt that Sam wasn't really Sam to Dean or that Sam's choice in Jus in Bello was reflective of how he is acting now because he stopped Dean from intervening in Aaron's "torture" by Cas. Maybe it was Sam's addiction to demon blood? Could that have altered something more than just his body? Or maybe because Lucifer had possession of him when he fell into the pit? There's a scary thought running through my head that maybe Lucifer regained control, maintained control in Hell and became an integral part of Sam that couldn't be separated as a conventional possession would have.

Scarier still, could Sam and Lucifer have melded into some kind of "hybrid"? I  mean, there were times when it seemed like Sam wasn't talking as Sam yet there were other times, like his banters with Dean, when he sounded just like himself, as if he was two people inhabiting one body. The SOON montage (which I LOVED seeing again and was relieved to learn didn't seen to be projecting a brief hiatus as past SOONs have done) seemed to intimate that there is something yet again about Sam that we're about to discover. Maybe Sam watched Lucifer torturing souls and somehow became indoctrinated? All are interesting theories as to why Sam had a different experience in Hell, but not necessarily why Sam is different from Dean. That is probably more rooted in elemental evolution, how they were raised, because contrary to what we perceive and I, as an unrepentant DeanGirl admit that I want to believe, as Dean's influence on Sam by raising him from a kid, keep in mind that there were 4 years that Dean had on Sam that Sam would never have. Sam said it himself, he never had the crusts cut off his sandwiches (another admission by Sam that maybe foreshadowed his difference with Dean and that Dean maybe should have taken a clue from). He never had a mother. Even Dean, for all of his best efforts and well-meaning, couldn't have given Sam what Mary was able to give Dean in those 4 short years he had with her. It could explain why Sam's memories in Dark Side of the Moon was bereft of any evidence of Dean. Again, more things that make Sam different from Dean.

Okay, to be fair. All along, from Season 1, one could hardly argue that Sam and Dean have always been different; from the way they were raised, to the way they responded to John's training, to the way they saw their father, to the way they responded to their father, to Sam wanting to have a normal life back then, to Dean having that normal life now, sort of, it wasn't hard to see the differences and honestly, how could it not have ended up the way that it did? Aren't we all individuals and don't we all develop uniquely to others, whether they be friends or siblings? Makes total sense to me, but what made me both sad and scared about Sam's change is perhaps that they were probably "destined" to go the directions they have because of how they grew up. I mean, there have always been contrasts between the brothers and in life there is always light and there is always dark. In many ways, Dean and Sam have been trading off being the one in the light and one in the dark. As we see them now, Dean is the one in the light and Sam the one shrouded in the dark, if for no other reason than we don't know what happened to him in Hell as well as why or who resurrected him. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that Sam is evil, just changed, as he said, just different. Different in ways that make you worry and make you wonder.

We could take a "bright side" approach to it, that Sam is being the kind of hunter that he needs to be, cold, distant, practical even, like Cas, feeling that sometimes causing pain, maybe to the point of torture is necessary at times to get the information that they need to defeat a larger, more dangerous evil. Greater good, as they say. Maybe instead of questioning Sam's view of hunting as suspicious, we should view Dean's need to want to spare Aaron "pollyanna-ish", unrealistic, and maybe even too idealistic. Perhaps it's that kind of difference between them that showcases why they experienced Hell differently. I mean, Sam had already taunted Dean last season about being too tortured over his experience in Hell, to the point of saying "get over it already", yes, it was said under the influence of a Siren, but they were truths finally exposed to the harsh light of reality.

I'll give that that's one way of defining their differences, but the unrepentant DeanGirl in me thinks Sam's acceptance of the way hunting should be carried out isn't absolute, that the compassion Dean was trying to exert towards Aaron is also a part of the job after all, it was once Sam's philosophy in Bloodlust, a philosophy he tried to convince Dean to adopt and in the end, it was what kept Dean from falling into his own person abyss at that time. Dean's very nature towards humanity makes him the righteous man that he is, why breaking him in Hell was such a victory for all that was evil and which started the Apocalypse on its path. Dean definitely still suffers (probably won't ever get over it completely even if he has learned to live with it) from the guilt of surrendering his conviction and compassion in order to save himself and to inflict pain on others. For good reason, he might also be particularly sensitive to the mere idea of torturing someone else, feeling no reason justifies doing it, having inflicted it himself. Dean has a unique, for now, perspective on torture. He understands it from both sides. I think it's more tragic to see Sam devolve into less the Sam who had that earlier philosophy, that he no longer believes that not all supernatural things are evil and should be killed and more sadly that he feels innocents are just collateral damage in the hunt. Was all that protest to Dean in Season 2 just his way of trying to save himself from becoming the monster that his father thought he could become if Dean failed in saving him? I hope it wasn't that self-serving. I'd much rather believe that something has happened to Sam to change that philosophy against his better judgment, that it's something or someone else's philosophy. I hope that the tables will soon be turned where it's Dean who will remind Sam about the goodness of humanity and of being human, that it's more than just flesh and bone.

Okay, the episode was not all gloom and doom, far from it. For me, there were wonderful moments of humor and joy at seeing Dean being his sarcastic self, even the banter between him and Sam, though not exactly like it was before, was enough to make me yearn for more and to bring a sigh and a smile.

Sidenote: Now, just because I am an unrepentant DeanGirl, doesn't mean that I didn't appreciate Sam's little workout routine or am blind to the beauty that is Sam Winchester. Hubba, hubba. Jared has certainly sculpted his body nicely. There was plenty to admire and drool over and I did. Only thing that bothered and scared me was, once again, Sam's attitude towards his one-night stand.  From a man who proclaimed that he doesn't have to pay for sex (though admittedly, we learned later it was Ruby so the protest didn't really apply convincingly) and for those of us who enjoyed the view find it hard to believe that he would even have to solicit the attention of a lovely woman at all, the idea that even when she would have walked away without being paid, even gave him her number to call her when she's not on the clock, Sam reacted as if she were an object, threw away her number without a second's thought.  It felt brrrr cold. Dean may have had his share of one-night stands, but I can't believe he ever treated any woman as coldly as that. Okay, unrepentant DeanGirl back. Oh, and I enjoyed Dean's love scene dream of Lisa. The romantic in me loved that he was thinking of her. Just wished there was more Dean if you know what I mean.

At the beginning with Sam and Dean reuniting for a hunt, it was just wonderfully comforting.  The banter, if not exactly the same was comforting just the same for me. I LOVE that Dean seems to be back to his old sarcastic self. He had a lot of great jibes and lines. I loved that he mutters, "Who died and made you boss?" on the way to meeting Sam in Pennsylvania. It's so Dean, that and carting a burger bag. Ah, how I missed Dean's unhealthy appetite. I LOVED the competition between him and Sam in their respective cars like racing to get to the cop's house and okay, I did cheer when Sam's car got trashed in the fight between Cas and Raphael's soldier.

Love the jibes though:

"Still driving the plastic piece of crap, huh?"

"What's your mileage again?"

"Shut up."

PRICELESS! I SO MISS THAT!!!! So every little moment that happened, I enjoyed.

There is something too cute about Dean scolding Ben over the phone, telling him to man-up and tell Lisa the truth, and that he can tell Ben is lying because he lies professionally! HILARIOUS. It's SO natural! I mean, you'd never suspect that Dean wasn't just another dad heading towards a 9 to 5, straightening out his kid in the process. Just TOO CUTE!  

Sidenote: Okay, the Supernatural gore factory is back. Though the boils didn't bother me, the cop whose flesh starting to...disintegrate. Yeow! I did look away for a second when more pieces started to go. The cop who had the locusts, you already knew something was up when he was scratching his head so that wasn't shock factor or even gore factor, just "okay...interesting." They keep upping the ante on the "ick" and they do it well.

I loved this:

"Yeh, but these guys, ate their way out of a cop's melon. I don't quite remember that in the King James."

I'm so happy to see sarcastic Dean back as well as Dean's colorful take on things.

I was definitely glad to see Cas back, but the tension it brought for Sam was intense. I LOVE the idea that Cas and Dean have a bond and it makes sense given all they have gone through together, Cas pulling him out of Hell for starters, but I wonder about the idea that Sam's calls went unheeded as if to imply that Sam didn't have a land line to Heaven, not just because Dean seems to have a direct line to Cas, but that Sam wasn't allowed one for some reason, that maybe Sam is different to Heaven as well. What that means, if anything, is intriguing at best.

"Dean and I do share a more profound bond."

Cas then turns to Dean and admits to him:

"I wasn't going to mention it." 

as if sounding guilty that he had to reveal that. It was both funny in a Cas-like embarrassing way because he misinterpreted Sam's "So you like him better or something?", but I have to admit that I took it initially as yes, that Sam doesn't have a line of communication to him or Heaven for a reason. It's that or Sam was lying about trying to contact Cas when he ended up topside. 

I LOVE that Dean defends Sam and lectures Cas about not being there for Sam, after Sam "took one for the team", but Cas's excuse about why Sam didn't get an answer because Cas had no answers to give was lame at best. If Cas felt any kind of kinship with Sam, which at the end of Season 5, it seemed that there was, Dean was right, Cas should have at least acknowledged that he had heard Sam and told him "I don't know."

Then Cas gets to be sarcastic and tells Dean he didn't come back because Dean called, but because of the plagues that have been appearing.

"You think I came because you called?"

Good on you, Cas. Still, I know that Cas was serious about the bond thing. After all, he is our lovely, literal Cas. Misha Collins plays this perfectly and it was nice to see him back.Cas is back with his kick-butt angelic powers too and it's a delight to see.

LOVED this:

"Well, it's nice to know what matters."

"It does help one to focus."

Ah, there comes that comforting feeling again. Nice to have literal Cas back. The episode is called The Third Man and it's nice to have Cas be that third man in the Winchester triad. He's certainly no third wheel. 

The realization of a "cursed object",  of sorts, (harks back to the show Friday, the 13th and maybe even more parallel, the current show, Warehouse 13) called the Staff of Moses only maybe not so much cursed as just a Heavenly weapon/relic is really cool. I LOVE that idea. And once again, humor at it's best:

"The weapon isn't being used to full capacity. I think we can rule Moses out as a suspect."

Dean's reaction just barely contained then saying:

"Okay, well...what is...what is Chuck Heston's disco stick doing down here anyway? I mean, don't you guys put away your toys?"

Jensen shows off his comic timing to great effect in these moments. He could just recite the line and be done, but the expression on his face as he takes in Cas's observation about Moses has that subtle yet expressive touch that involves the viewer too. He's showing and saying what we're all doing and thinking too. He's so versatile.  Ahem, okay, DeanGirl moment or more accurately, a JensenGirl moment.

As Cas relates to Sam and Dean about the state of Heaven and how much in chaos things are there, you realize that maybe averting the Apocalypse wasn't such a good thing. It's an angle that's a bit unexpected but very much welcome in its ability to turn what should have been a predictable salvation situation flipped on its head as not so much. Hints are everywhere that the post-Apocalyptic results weren't exactly what everyone thought they would be, certainly not what Dean had expected.  I mean, yes, no Hell on Earth,a good thing no matter how you look at it, but also no paradise either. Demons and monsters are "different" than the previous iterations, seemingly 2.0 improved versions of those "species" coming into the light or even more terrifying some "originators" or "alpha" versions showing up that are not so easy to kill or more accurately, can't be killed in the conventional way hunters of any kind have been used to. Legends of these beasts are being rewritten and along with it, angels are rebelling against previous constraints. With no Father figure to control His children, everyone is going rogue, like teenagers without supervision. So a once stable and controlled Heaven is now becoming an anarchist's delight and Raphael seems to be anointing himself to the role just nicely.

It's quite literally a mad, mad world out there and I've been loving that switch. Once again, Supernatural under the very capable guidance of new showrunner, Sera Gamble, is breaking conventional wisdom and shattering barriers to predictable storylines.  None of us fans ever doubted that she wouldn't be the perfect heir-apparent to Eric Kripke. She's proving it with every episode that airs, not just the ones she pens. 

Sidenote: Misha Collins should be commended for giving Cas such innocence where his "people skills" are concerned. Over doing the finger quotes was the perfect embellishment to emphasizing just how rusty Cas really is yet he manages to communicate just fine the seriousness of the situation. 

"Sam. Dean. My people skills are rusty. Pardon me, but I have spent the last year as a multi-dimensional wavelength of celestial intent, but believe me, you do not want that weapon down here. Help me find it or more people will die."

A multi-dimensional wavelength of celestial intent? HILARIOUS!

I have to say that Dean and kids, just a wonderful combo and I relish it when it happens. There is a chemistry there that just makes you want to have Dean hug you. He comforts and explains to calm Aaron down about all that he's seeing and it's believable. Dean takes the lead when interrogating Aaron and you're glad it's him. Sadly, it takes torture to extract who gave Aaron the modified staff and Dean bristles and is helpless to stop Cas. Cas's anger is a definitive sign that he doesn't relish doing what he has to do to Aaron, but like Sam, feels it's necessary under the circumstances they are in. You're not so sure Dean believes that and I really enjoy that he's this dissenting voice in the group, as if to be there to remind them that what they are doing is not okay even if it is necessary. It's a role I wholly believe in Dean to carry with respect.

When Aaron tells them about how he got the staff, his story resonates in mythologies past, for example, Aaron tells them how he prayed to God every night to punish the policemen for killing his brother, but never got an answer. There's a thread here to Nick from Season 5's Sympathy with the Devil when he is seduced by Lucifer to become his vessel. We learn that Balthazar offers Aaron the same kind of justice for his brother that Lucifer offered Nick for his family, both of them selling that God has forsaken them and that they have the ability to give them justice. The scarier change of mythology, suddenly, it's not only crossroad demons who can buy souls. Now, it seems so can angels. The realization shocks and appalls Cas. As it should, once again a predictable concept completely flipped on its head, the "universe" as we used to know it is now a universe thrown completely off its axis.  

Again, I LOVED learning how "different" the world is and is becoming in this post-Apocalyptic version. When we hear Sam's words about just being different from Dean, it's not hard to extend that concept to everyone around this new world. Perhaps Sam is just another cog in the wheel of how "different" things are becoming, that along with vampires, shapeshifters, werewolves he's just another representative of what else is different.

LOVED seeing Sebastian Roche! I also watch Fringe so seeing him as Thomas Jerome Newton and Balthazar is a double treat for me. Still, I'll always remember him as Jax's brother Jerry on General Hospital, that's when I first saw him. I LOVE how he's playing the rogue angel and though he's betraying Cas and his beliefs, I was touched that there was this sense of loyalty and friendship between them. Not anything like Uriel and more like a comrade-in-arms. I really felt for Cas then. I mean, he's been abandoned by all who had once fought by his side. Poor Cas is this last man standing by Heavenly standards and though it makes him all the more heroic that he's keeping true to his beliefs, it makes me feel terrible that he is standing alone for all that he is fighting for. Even with Sam and Dean there, he's still alone. There is this sense of loss about him, let alone an understandable anger for what is happening and his helplessness to stop any of it. Again, Misha Collins is playing this with a beautiful tragic nobility that I am thoroughly enjoying.

"You're gonna torture a kid."

"I can't care about that, Dean. I don't have the luxury."

Sigh, you can see the agony making that choice is for Cas and you can feel Dean wondering where the heck is the Sam who once lectured him about hurting an innocent back in Bloodlust or the Sam who once had his back and now Dean wonders whether he's there anymore. Hard choices, desperate times, desperate measures. It's all painful. In the way this has been unfolding thus far, it feels less like our boys are united. Here we thought that at the end of Season 5, they had finally come to a united front and they had, but now, they seem farther apart than ever and you can see that Dean is troubled as well as hurt by learning more and more about this "different" Sam. Though it's not realistic to expect Dean to expect the Sam he knew, it's still hard to take a Sam who doesn't think torturing a child is a bad thing or that at the very least doesn't struggle with it like Cas does. Again, Sam is acting coldly practical about it and it feels totally wrong. When Cas begins extracting the information from Aaron and Aaron screams, Dean's reaction is so visceral, he wants to help and immediately tries, as if it's a reflex, but Sam stops him. Dean yanks his arm away and gives Sam an incredulous look. It's terrible to watch in a way. However, it's Sam's look while Aaron is being tortured that chills. He's intent on watching, his eyes staring almost hypnotized. I can't tell if he's getting something from the torture itself, but it chills my spine to see it, as it must chill Dean.

Sidenote: LOVE the fight scene with Raphael's henchman. SO cool. Especially when it results in Sam's car getting  demolished. I'm so mean, but hey, there's only one car that belongs on this show. Dean's comment, again, PRICELESS. "Okay, silver lining."  *still laughs when I hear it.

DeanGirl Moment: Okay, I have to say that I LOVE that Cas chose Dean's blood to do the ritual because he needed human blood. Hold it, I know what you're going to say, Dean was closest that's why Cas chose him and the fact that he needed human blood doesn't mean Dean is more human than Sam. I get that, but allow this DeanGirl a moment where she can speculate that maybe there's yet another difference between Sam and Dean goes beyond skin deep. I'm still of the belief that Dean's humanity is unique, what has made him unique from day one. Despite Sam's proof that he isn't a demon to Dean in Exile on Main Street, he could still be something more than human. That doesn't have to mean demon, it could be a good thing, again, we don't know. Okay. It's a stretch. I admit it. Moving on. Thanks for allowing for a silly moment. Sidenote: Still interesting that the ritual required human blood. Begs the question of why human blood, but then again, rituals are picky that way.

Okay, another great Dean line:

"Huh. I was expecting more Dr. No less Liberace."

Have I said how much I have missed Dean's little quips and commentaries?

I loved the exchange between Balthazar and Cas, friends facing each other, once comrades, and yet, like Sam and Dean, they are now "different" no longer fighting for the same thing. By stopping the Apocalypse, Cas has inadvertently made himself an example of rebellion to the rest of the angels, in Balthazar's eyes, a role model for it. This harks back to Anna's declaration to Dean about how rigid and unyielding Heaven was, the blind faith to a Father only a select few even met, the clear control He exerted over them all. Now, without God, all is rebellion and civil war is breaking out. It's every angel for himself and Raphael is leading the charge to be the new commander and wants a "do-over" on the Apocalypse. Change is not a good thing at this point. Though Balthazar comes off as more of an opportunist than someone like Uriel, for now, I like the shade of grey Sebastian Roche gives him and maybe I'm naive (won't be the first time I've been accused of that -- hee), but I think that he'll be more ally than enemy to Cas, least I hope so. Call me a Pollyanna.

Well, I think I better wrap this up. I want to post it before tomorrow night's episode airs. This episode was chock full of new mythology to digest and ponder and I LOVE that. It's deftly setting up what's to come and the SOON tag makes it all the more enticing. I, for one, am fully on board and am pleased with how things are going even if they are not going well for our Winchester brothers.

Thanks for reading and here's to Jensen's directorial debut with Weekend at Bobby's.  I am sure I'll love this episode. Not that I don't want more airtime for our boys, but having Bobby play a more central role in an episode gives me a smile. Jim Beaver is beyond a delight playing crusty old Bobby Singer. His is the only sarcasm that can beat Dean's. I'm also excited about seeing Mark Sheppard again as Crowley. A deliciously ambivalent crossroads demon, one you love to hate, yet I don't hate him. Despite his ulterior motives, having Bobby make a deal so Crowley would help him and the boys was just purely his demon nature. It's that fable of the scorpion and the frog. The scorpion makes a deal with the frog that he won't sting him if he helps him across a stream, stating that if he did, he would doom them both. The frog agrees and takes him across, but the scorpion stings the frog anyway midstream. The frog, dying from the poison, asks the scorpion why and the scorpion replies, "It's my nature." I see Crowley that way. He knows no other way to be yet Mark Sheppard plays him so likeable in so many ways, you can't help, but wish he would go against his nature so he could join forces with them.

Boy, did I get long winded or what? Sorry about that. Thanks for sticking with it and forgive any mistakes I might have missed in the proofing.

re: the hooker. Someone else somewheres else made the point that hooker is a "no strings, no interaction" way to have sex without having to have any emotional conection. Which makes sense if Sam's "shut down" for whatever reason.

The "what's wrong with Sam" / Dean being the humanity of the two just doesn't work well with me outside of a few episodes. I just get tired that the writers tend to go the tension route every season. So I'll be glad when the two get back together WITHOUT one being suspicious of the other, even if they still have the yin/yang dichtonomy.

Thanks for your comment. You made some great points. You're right about Sam. If he's shutting down emotionally then he would want to keep his distance from anything that could make him feel anything. Even his attitude towards Dean is arms-length. There is banter, but barely a connection. It's more reflex than a real connection. As for the tension route, I agree with you that it seems like Dean and Sam are always at odds and at other sides of the fences. I miss their connection and agree that always making them divided can get pretty rote, but I can enjoy the conflict as along as there is resolution. Thanks again for your insight.

That was very comprehensive. Have to agree that it had some great banter and fun dialogue. The mystery is way off the charts and the actors are doing a fantastic job!!! :)

Thanks for your comment and compliment. Yeh, it just gets better and better. I'm SO psyched!

Scarier still, could Sam and Lucifer have melded into some kind of "hybrid"? I mean, there were times when it seemed like Sam wasn't talking as Sam yet there were other times, like his banters with Dean, when he sounded just like himself, as if he was two people inhabiting one body.

Oh, wow, that is a scary thought! It makes a frightening kind of sense though... *looks worried*

Dean has a unique, for now, perspective on torture. He understands it from both sides. I think it's more tragic to see Sam devolve into less the Sam who had that earlier philosophy, that he no longer believes that not all supernatural things are evil and should be killed and more sadly that he feels innocents are just collateral damage in the hunt.

So well said! Dean really does have a unique perspective on torture. And I agree, I think it is sad to see Sam changing that way. What makes me worried is that no matter what your philosophy, if you're a caring human being, you'd be tortured if you went through something like what what Sam went through. For him to shrug it off that way, if it's not just denial, is frightening.

I mean, you'd never suspect that Dean wasn't just another dad heading towards a 9 to 5, straightening out his kid in the process. Just TOO CUTE!

I loved that too! :D

Poor Cas is this last man standing by Heavenly standards and though it makes him all the more heroic that he's keeping true to his beliefs, it makes me feel terrible that he is standing alone for all that he is fighting for.

I feel sorry for him too! Though, like last season, I have a feeling that he's doing exactly what he was meant to do.

Sam's proof that he isn't a demon to Dean in Exile on Main Street, he could still be something more than human.

I still wonder about that... In Devil's Trap, the YED didn't react to the holy water when he was possessing John. He told them later, "That stuff doesn't work on something like me." If Sam is something bad, he's probably a big, powerful bad. *looks worried again*

Awesome blog as always! :)
