" I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful - for all of it.” —  Kristin Armstrong

 

 

Sometimes Supernatural story disappoints me. Specially when a good fleshed out character is killed just like that. I mean, Mick's death had shock value but we all already knew the British Men of Letters were evil. Also same backstory would have been better if told in different way. I mean Kendricks... Really? How about Mick leaving his friend die because of mission? That it was SORT of believable and not the Harry Potter nightmare mess we got? There were some good parts in the episode but the disbelief from the bad parts cast too big of a shadow over the good parts. I had even trouble to choose the word and videos for this article. Disbelief could have been good but yeah. Mick deserved better so I chose redemption and few Mick fan videos. He was liked. Rest in peace.

 


Mick Davies - "How to Save a Life" by: Jennifer Gitler

 

How to Save a Life by The Fray

 

Step one, you say, "We need to talk."
He walks, you say, "Sit down. It's just a talk."
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

 

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

 

Let him know that you know best
'Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
Pray to God, he hears you
And I pray to God, he hears you

 

And where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

 

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you've followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came

 

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

 

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

 

How to save a life

 

How to save a life

 

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

 

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life

The Fray achieved national success with their first single, "Over My Head (Cable Car)", which became a top ten hit in the United States. The release of their second single, "How to Save a Life", brought the band worldwide fame. The song charted in the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 and was a top 5 single in Australia, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

 

The group's self-titled, second album, released in 2009, debuted at number-one on the Billboard charts and was certified gold in the United States, Australia and Canada. It was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album in 2010. While both the albums were commercially successful, critical reception was mixed. The Fray was ranked No. 84 on Billboard's "Artists of the Decade" list. Their third album Scars & Stories, released in 2012, achieved moderate commercial success; debuting and peaking at number four on the Billboard 200. The album again received mixed reviews from critics. The band's fourth album, Helios, was released in February 2014. The band's compilation album, Through the Years: The Best of the Fray, was released in November 2016.

 

The Fray's use of the piano as the lead instrument in their music has led critics to compare the band with English piano-driven bands such as Coldplay and Keane. However, the band lists its influences as the Wallflowers, Counting Crows, Better Than Ezra and U2. 2008.

Quotes

 

Mick: This is not some werewolf. Do-- Do you have any idea what will happen if this abomination is born?
Sam: Mick... we're handling it, all right? We'll find her.
Dean: So, until then... I say we drink.

 

Crowley: My loyal...ish subjects, these troubled times, I'm aware there might be some confusion as to where you're supposed to place your loyalty. Even with Lucifer back in the Cage, there are those of you who would try to help him... because he scares you or engorges you. Just the chance that Lucifer could come back, the rumor, would've been enough to keep some of you working against me, undermining me, being a royal pain in my... pert, royal ass. But lo, the beast has been humbled. From his own lips, you will hear proclaimed of the one, true leader of all Hell. See... I didn't just beat the Devil. I tamed him.

 

Sam: I'm Sam, this is Eileen Leahy.
Renny: Ah, the banshee girl. We have a file. From what Mick tells me, neither of you have any formal training. Fascinating. I was top of my class at Kendricks--
Eileen: No one cares.

 

Mick: My entire life with the Men of Letters, I never broke a rule. And yes, at first I was shocked at how Sam and Dean operate. But what Lady Bevell doesn't mention is the lives they've saved, monsters destroyed, and outcomes made better not because of the Code, but because of Sam and Dean Winchester's sense of what's right.

Dr. Hess: And that is the crux of the matter. The Code is not a suggestion. It's an absolute. The Code is what separates us from the monsters. It is the order by which we all live.
Mick: No. The Code is what makes a young boy kill his best friend. When I was a child, I had nothing. I owed you everything, and I obeyed. But I'm a man now, Dr. Hess, and I can see the choices, and I choose to do the right thing.

The coat of arms includes an Aquarian Star, a rampant lion and two crossed keys. In heraldry, crossed keys represent the Keys of Heaven and can be seen on the papal coats of arm.

 

Dean: So, who's the chick with her, that, uh, Pat Benatar wannabe?
Pat Benatar is an American rock singer and songwriter.

 

Crowley: Look, kids. He goes where I tell him. He does what I tell him. He is my dog. Showtime, Marmaduke.
Marmaduke is a cartoon Great Dane who appears in the eponymous cartoon strips. No one can tell him what to do.
