"A brave man is a man who dares to look the Devil in the face and tell him he is a Devil." 
- James A. Garfield

I guess you could say we lost two characters in this episode. At least for now. So I choise two videos this week -one about Rowena and the other about Castiel. Both are really great. Even though I have some mixed feelings about Rowena, she was a scene stealer in this episode. I am not sure she is gone, though. She is smart and she has all the means to prevent her death. Also, even she has the hots for Lucifer. I don't think she is so naive to not have a backup plan if things with Lucifer backfired. But we will see. In a way her last words for her son were, "I love you". Mark Sheppard and Ruth Connell stole that scene together. They were perfect.

Castiel on the other hand is in a pickle. What was he thinking? I would have liked to motherly smack him to the back of his head. I read one review that really opened my eyes as to why Cas would make this fatal choice. It has been build up many seasons, even in season 11 and not only with the bad stuff the angel Ambriel, Amara and Lucifer said about him.

I feel shitty for Cas; he’s had a rough trot of it of late…(well for seasons really). He got the snot beat out of him by his bestie, then he was whammied by the attack dog spell, which he’s probably only just recovering from, beat the snot out of his bestie, got tortured by psoriasis angel and his buddy and got betrayed by Hannah. He’s definitely in a weakened state, physically and emotionally. Then he hears how he’s useless, not super important, expendable, the Winchesters are the real heroes not him, and to top it off, that he’s hated by his own kind. Then Amara bangs the nail in the coffin and says he reeks of self-loathing, he’s weak, he’s not even worth consuming – he’s all used up. Poor Cas, he’s getting kicked while he’s down.

Supernatural Episode 11x10 review " The Devil in the Details" by sweetondean

Castiel has some learning to do. Lucifer beat the snot out of him and he was like a ragdoll against Amara. Taking Lucifer in makes him stronger but also mirrors that he sees himself expendable. Poor Cas. I hope he makes it.



Rowena || Control made by: Doreen Grey

Control by Halsey

They send me away to find them a fortune
A chest filled with diamonds and gold
The house was awake
With shadows and monsters
The hallways they echoed and groaned

I sat alone, in bed 'til the morning
I'm crying, "They're coming for me"
And I tried to hold these secrets inside me
My mind's like a deadly disease

I'm bigger than my body
I'm colder than this home
I'm meaner than my demons
I'm bigger than these bones

And all the kids cried out,
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
I can't help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?

I paced around for hours, on empty
I jumped at the slightest of sounds
And I couldn't stand the person inside me
I turned all the mirrors around

I'm bigger than my body
I'm colder than this home
I'm meaner than my demons
I'm bigger than these bones

And all the kids cried out,
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
I can't help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?

I'm well acquainted
With villains that live in my bed
They beg me to write them
So they'll never die when I'm dead

And I've grown familiar
With villains that live in my head
They beg me to write them
So I'll never die when I'm dead

I'm bigger than my body
I'm colder than this home
I'm meaner than my demons
I'm bigger than these bones

[2x]
And all the kids cried out,
"Please stop, you're scaring me"
I can't help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?

Castiel - On my Own made by: Angel Dove

On my Own by Ashes Remain

They send me away to find them a fortune
There's gotta be another way out
I've been stuck in a cage with my doubt
I've tried forever getting out on my own.
But every time I do this my way
I get caught in the lies of the enemy
I lay my troubles down
I'm ready for you now.

[Chorus:]
Bring me out
Come and find me in the dark now
Everyday by myself I'm breaking down
I don't wanna fight alone anymore
Bring me out
From the prison of my own pride
My God
I need a hope I can't deny
In the end I'm realizing I was never meant to fight on my own

Every little thing that I've known is every thing I need to let go
You're so much bigger than the world I have made
So I surrender my soul
I'm reaching out for your hope
I lay my weapons down
I'm ready for you now.

[Chorus]

I don't wanna be incomplete
I remember what you said to me
I don't have to fight alone

[Chorus]

Quotes:

Lucifer: Okay, you don't like me. I get it, sometimes I don't like me either, but Gabriel and Raphael are dead, God went out for a pack of smokes and never came back and Michael... Well, let's just say prison life hasn't really agreed with Michael. These days he's usually sitting in a corner singing show tunes and touching himself.
Sam: So you're it.
Lucifer: Heh-heh, I'm it! And hey, I'm not the good guy, we both know I'm not, but the Darkness, she's the end of everything. But I can beat her, we can beat her. You and me, together. So come on, Sam. Make the right choice, the big sacrifice one more time, man. Sam, it's time to save the world, man.
Sam: No. No.
Crowley: Mother, why do you hate me?
Rowena: I hate you, because when I look into your eyes I see the woman I used to be, before magic, before the coven. When I was nothing but Rowena, the tanner's daughter. A pale, scared little girl, who smelled of filth and death. I hate you, because when you were born, your father said he loved me, then he went back to his grand wife and his grand house, whilst I lay pathetic and half dead on a straw mat -- my thighs slick with blood. I hate you, because if I didn't, I'd love you. But love, love is weakness. And I'll never be weak again.
Minutiae:

Sam's voice mail message has been recorded by Dean. On it Dean says "Sam can't come to the phone right now because he's waxing...like everything" Sam then says "What are you doing with my phone? Dean! Come on!"

On his voice mail Crowley says "Thank you for phoning Crowley, King of Hell. For demon deals press 1. To report a sighting of that ginger whore Rowena, press 2.
