The boys are driving in the car, and Sam suddenly notices the road sign has drastically changed from Fort Collins half an hour ago the sign said 5o miles and now it saying a 100 miles.
Sam: turns round looking very bewildered and confused ‘ That sign said Fort Collins 50 miles?’
Sam: ‘So last time I looked like 12 seconds ago erh, um ‘Fort Collins was a 100 miles
Dean: shakes his head ‘Hey man, you no god has got his hocks into you, you no?’
Sam: No, Its more than Vesta’ it’s like this kind of thing has been happening to me, its like there are just chunks of time missing, like there are times when I’m not here.
Dean: ‘Well like I’ve said’
Sam: ‘The trials I no, yes I heard you. I heard you last week, the week before and the week before that’.
Dean: ‘Yes, damn straight the trials’ they whacked you man, your not at warp speed yet okay, but you will be, Dean slaps Sam’s leg to reassure him and there’s a pause …. ‘Would I lie?’
Now Time loss is way different to memory loss? So again what is Ezekiel doing?
Sam has lost quite a bit of time during 50 miles worth of driving, so is this beginning to drive him crazy, Is Sam having a nap and he hasn’t realized it, and Zeke has been having conversations with Dean in the car for what, half an hour to an hours worth of driving?
Are the cracks in Zeke’s fixing Sam beginning to show its true colours? And has Dean come unstuck. Is he into deep that he’s finding it hard to give Sam decent words to reassure him, as Sam has picked up that he’s told him three times before already. Are Dean’s excuses wearing a bit thin? Is Dean ready to tackle Zeke and ask him what the hell he’s playing at?
Or has Zeke got lazy and he’s got his wires got crossed and he’s taken away the wrong thing?
Sam is as scared as hell, and rightly so. How would you answer time passing you by without having answers, with wired unexplained things happening to you that you didn’t have any control over? Dean’s line ‘would I lie’ has pricked a nerve with me. As he is doing just that. He is lying through his teeth and has been for weeks. He’s trying damned hard to cover up, but is Sam seeing right through Dean? Or is he still actually oblivious to what is happening to him. Zeke is taking chunks of time away which is rather spooky as Sam will never be able to get those back? He might be able to with the memory loss which is still annoying as hell. But some how you cannot play with time, that has gone for ever. Has Zeke been giving Sam fake memories, as after all this was what happened with Lisa and Ben? Dean hated Cas doing that to them and Sam said back then Dean had done some shady things in his time and Dean replies; if you talk of this again, I will punch you. So again we are seeing a similar story being re-told in a different format.
So what do you all think of this tense, unnerving plot stretching out before us for tonight? If I were either Sam or Dean at the moment I would be bricking it. The more I think of Sam twigging the more I think he doesn’t no. Or is he just picking up on strange moments and not being able to put them together as we’ve seen in the clip. Taking chunks of Sam’s time away cannot be a good sign, can it? Is this all necessary in the healing process. Is he doing something with Sam’s mind? Dean hates the thought of lying and covering it up to take away Sam’s stress. But is it enough? How long can the writers churn this out? I have heard that episodes 9 and 10 are going to be teary and the boys do cry, so are we right to feel nervous as the weeks have gone by and the deception still continues to travel. Is this the worst lie Dean has ever told in his life?
