There’s no place like HOME!

We know Sam said these words during the final scenes of the episode, which by the way I’ve still not seen yet. But have sensed that Sam has finally come to terms with the bunker and doesn’t just see it as a place of work. He can relax and finally feel that he belongs some where and fits in. So finally we get to see and learn a bit more about Sam from his own room. I have also picked up that the only TV in the bunker is in Sam’s room. Which appears on the surface a bit wired. So from the layout in Sam’s room. How did it appear, was it as you expected. Neat, tidy and uniformed not a thing out of place? I would also like to think there was some form of a desk in there and a bookshelf and a few books scattered around the place. I can also imagine there a few old newspapers lying around to help them with any of their cases.

I would hazard a guess that we wouldn’t have seen any family photo’s, hence Dean’s room with a picture of him with his mum. So what did this tell you about Sam? What did we pick up from this viewing that gave us more details about Sam’s inner layers? Was the room enough of a give away into what he enjoys, or doesn’t enjoy in general?  Did it give us any real further clues? Or wasn’t there much else to really uncover?

So what did this tell you about Sam?

I understood we also got to see other rooms in the bunker; such as the Kitchen, and the newly furbished car show room hiding some very old classic cars and a couple of motor cycles. I feel the bunker is like an optical illusion that it appears possibly bigger than what it actually is. I think its vast underground with little to show on the surface. Also with Sam’s room being shown we’ve seen another three new sets which tell us a bit more about the place, and what history had gone before.

This is the KITCHEN OMG! Room 23…

Its nice to think the boys finally have a place they can call home, in their every day lives and manic as it is a secure place to lay their weary head of an evening can only be a good thing. I hated the thought of the boys resting in horrible motel rooms even though it became a familiar (and still will be) fixture. Most of us in the world today have some resemblance we can call a home. We are used to going to work, and coming back to our home, cooking a meal and later going to bed. But for the boys this was never really possible to have such luxuries. We often tend to over look it, until the bunker arrived and faced up to the fact that finally they have a safe and secure environment they can call HOME! Even though it took Sam a while to warm to the place, he’s eventually owned up to the fact that he feels he does belong, and wants to put down some roots. We’ve seen in early episodes how the boys have been shunted around from pillar to post  with only a matter of weeks at a time in one place. So this must now take some getting use to and register, that there will be no more moving and moving, and moving.

There’s nothing like a classic car to blow away the cobwebs!!

So when I think back to ‘The Wizard of Oz’ this episode probably did fit as there was never a truer line said for these boys at least, ‘There’s No PLACE like HOME!’.  A place they can finally call their own …..     So what did you all think?

  1. Sam’s room reflects his abandonment issues and attachment disorder. He fears putting down roots since permanence is not part of his history and attempts at it have failed miserably. He has no pictures of him with his family, not even with just John and Dean. He falls for the bad girls so easily – a desperate need to attach perhaps. His hard mattress demonstrates that he has given up pleasurable items, sort of like a monk of letters but Game of Thrones and the ‘Slumber party’ sort of wake this area up for Sam.’Slumber party’ has more meanings than Dorothy and the Witch waking up. However, he does smile a lot in this episode, some say sneer, but Sam didn’t use those facial muscles to much in season 8. Nice to see. The connection to Charlie does that for both brothers. He seemed to come around to the concept of his own home with Dean at the very end- and wasn’t that a point of the episode?
    Good to see you back Debbab 😉 You do sometimes forget about their issues, and how fragile they both are inside. Even with Amelia he had to give up his home and start a fresh some where else.Its sad that he doesn’t show pictures. But not all of us humans are built in the same way. Maybe Sam has a reason for not showing photographs. It is sad that he has trouble with little things like this. Its almost as if he has lead a sheltered life like a monk, in a retreat. I’m pleased he’s smiling, or is this Zeke from the inside out 😉 Did Charlie spot this time there was something wrong with Sam. As when he was sick with the trials she appeared concerned. I just wondered if she had picked this up this time round? I am chuffed that the episode showed us a bit more from Sam’s perspective. I do enjoy how the writers unravel these layers in our boys 😉

    1. Yeah, Sam is definitely putting those facial muscles into practice this season. People have got to expect some glitches as he doesn’t use those two much. Sam smiling just because he’s happy is like seeing a unicorn and its especially great that he mostly smiles when hes with Dean, now.
      Its good to see them both smile once in a while, they both have lovely smiles 🙂

  2. Right now Sams room is very sterile. Nothing like Deans room. The beginning of the episode he tells Dean the bunker is just his workplace, but the end of the episode he says there’s no place like home…so I’m hoping he has changed his mind!
    I did begin to image this, so I wasn’t far off with my crazy thoughts. 😉 I’ve waited so long for this, and don’t know why its taken over a year for us to see it. What was the big deal? Why show us one, and not the other? I’m not jealous, just found it rather odd. Maybe Dorothy has talked him into something which made him feel better about the place. Its good he could talk to someone at least.

    1. I don’t think he’s quite there yet but hes open to the idea that he can relax. That the rug wont get pulled out from under him again and they’ll have to leave. Dean is basically trying to let him know that its okay to settle down.
      This is probably what it is. He’s nervous of relaxing in it too much in case it all is taken away from them. It shows how pent up he still is about stuff though. At least Dean can talk some sense into him, and make him feel more at home, and that he does belong.

      I thought Sam’s room was sterile but not in an empty way. To him that room was a place to sleep and watch TV. He treated it very much like one of the motel rooms they used to live in. Its not empty. Its quite cluttered but with files and boxes and papers and no personal items. We don’t see clothes on the floor or trash or anything but I do get the impression that once Sam calms down and settles in, his room will be messier than Dean ‘s because cleaning things is one of Sam’s lowest priorities, I suspect.
      So I wonder what will make it appear more like a place he can call a home. If he’s still thinking of motel rooms. I suppose they don’t have much personal stuff any way, but since roots are being put down, this might change. Sam I don’t think was a very untidy person, from what I could make out he always was organized, and he was a bit of a stickler. You surprise me there, I thought Sam did keep things pretty clean. Although saying this they do leave the motel rooms without making their beds? 😉

      Its interesting to note that we’ve seen Dean in his boxers and bathrobe a couple of times now. In fact Dean just wanders around the bunker like that in the morning and makes full use of the kitchen, but Sam is always fully dressed whenever we see him.
      I think its actually rather cool, that he can wander about and relax. That he’s not all tensed up and ready to bounce out the door at a moments notice. I wonder if this is more at the weekends, rather than a week day? I loved it when Sam mentioned the dead man’s bathrobe. Dean’s face was classic!! That kitchen looked like a bomb had hit it. Had the witch been in and blasted her powers in there or something? It would be sexy to see them both in their robes. Could Sam appear in perhaps a silk one? 😉

      Is anyone else really keen to see Dean on one of those motorcycles?!! Yes!Yes!And more Yes!.
      Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There was a picture out not so long back in the summer with both the boys on scooter’s the tiny ones that they whiz around the set on sometimes. But Dean in motor cycle leathers, I suddenly feel faint!

      1. The TV in Sam’s room is the only one we’ve seen in the bunker. There may be another. We just haven’t seen it. We know Dean likes to watch movies so he might just use Sam’s TV for that.
        Its wired that we’ve not seen some sort of movie room, or living room. I cannot believe for the life of me that its the only TV in there. I know they’ve also got the computer but do they watch TV on there?

        1. Oh, I forgot. There was a movie room, sort of. We saw them watching a home movie in Clip Show. They could be doing that all the time. The writers are very good at giving us the impression that there is a bunch of stuff going on that we just don’t see.
          I thought in Clip Show they were just using one of the board room desks to put up the projector on. I didn’t notice it was a separate room?

      2. Sam gets up early, goes for a run, cleans himself up and gets breakfast-outside. Clearly at the beginning his mindset is that on being on the road. What else does he know? Dean has had a home-life and modeling of domesticity so it is far easier for him to cook, clean, not be dressed and ready for action. And yes, those motorcycles look awesome. But we know how Dean feels about Baby. It does give Sam an alternative mode of transportation should Dean take a side trip.
        Dean did have a year with Lisa, so he had a firm idea of what domestic bliss was all about. This is a whole new ball game to Sam. At least when he went out early for a run, its in perspective and not out of character, as he does go out for that early morning jog. I wonder if Sam will learn how to cook from Dean, that will be cool to watch. Cooking demonstrations with Daddy Dean’ …. I can imagine soon, if the Zeke thing gets out of control Sam will just nick a car and bugger off he doesn’t have to steal a get a way car now. Oh now which car shall I take out for a test drive today 😉

        1. Yeah! I agree. Sam is still living as if they are at a motel. Its a habit and it still hasn’t sunk in that the bunker BELONGS to them. Dean had his parents briefly and then Lisa so he has morning rituals that are different.
          I’ve loved how the writers have made the boys very different from each other. In the lives they’ve both lead. Sam still has a long way to go, but he will make it.
