DEAD IN THE WATER 1:03

The Way things go…

If eating butterflies gives you a bellyache quit eating them.  It is as simple as that.  So if you don’t want a vengeful ghost to drown you, don’t drown Peter Sweeney in Lake Manitoc especially if that lake was being drained due to a dam leak. Leaking dams could put a rush on the ghost. You could end up drowned in that lake  just like Sophie Carlton, and even Will Carlton who managed to drown in his own sink that could even have been full of dirty ole lake water.

Folks would not stop drowning like Bill Carlton who didn’t even get to drown because his boat blew up.  Andrea had better luck because Sam saved her from drowning in her own bathtub filled with that ole dirty lake water.

Things just couldn’t find a place to stop and that lake was getting lower every day, so Peter’s ole ghost called down Lucas to the lake and got the lad to jump in for a swim.  Dean jumped in too and did his level best to find Lucas down in that ole dirty lake water, but they vengeful ghost showed himself with that bloated, blocked dead grey face was having none of it.

Things looked like Peter was going to get a bonus with Dean, when Sheriff Jake Davin’s raced to the lake eaten up with guilt and shame and a goodly amount of fear desperate to save his grandson’s life. Jake confessed that he and his big bully boy Will Carlyon 35 years ago had been having a little fun play drowning little boy Peter, and they just held his head under the water too long.  So the ghost grabbed Jake and took him instead. Then Dean, clutching Lucas, punched up high out of the water with both of them gasping for breath. It was over.

What if 35 years ago Jake and Will had ran for help and confessed what they had done?  What if all those years of guilt and fear and watching Peter’s mother suffer had never happened and all those folks had not drowned including 18 year old Sophie, just taking a morning swim?

  1. Jensen and Jared both stated a while back that the water was so very cold when they shot that scene and yes it was the two actors not stuntmen-before J2 were really considered so important by the network. As the writers went along and developed the lore on ghosts, the vengeful aspect made more sense. The ghost waited until the natural lake was about to be drained before it went after folks. Says more about the treatment of the environment and than consequences of digging up old wounds.
    The portrayal of Dean’s protector side with Lucas is the start of fleshing out the character who was to be a second banana to Sam. Jensen’s delivery of the lines with Lucas reveal much about Dean. At that point, the story became “believable” and the brothers working together at their own risk became front and center.
    Sam saves the Mom from the bathtub drowning. Jared had some commentary about pulling a naked actress, save a few small spots covered up. in this episode and not knowing where to look. That actress I believe is Amy Acker, who has since gone on in many other roles, now in “Person of Interest”.
    Of course, the black water often now reminds me of the Leviathan goo that came through the water pipes 7 years later. There is a nod to the environment every so often.

    1. I noticed the NOD too regarding the environmental issue. I often wondered what show Amy went onto. As she was on Buffy previously which I never watched, and don’t watch Person of Interest. Heard its good though. I wonder if she would ever reappear on Supernatural. She was a good guest star.

    2. I did not know the actors did their own stunt work by jumping into water that could have drowned them! Oh! My! I had just been pondering how dangerous it was to jump wearing heavy boots the other day. (side notes–lots of World War II GIs jumped into deep water to wade to the shore and their combat boots drown them.)

      Now I can worry all day!

      Double Wow!

      1. I know they have stunt doubles, but there have been times when the boys have wanted to do their own stunts. Remember Sin City and Sam rescues Dean from the church, the vicar throws Sam onto the car, that was Jared all his own work. Also in Repo Man when he hit the car, I am pretty sure it was him. He is so eager to do stunts and I bet they have to rein them in a lot of the time and say hey not doing it, not on my watch. Jensen did say on the commentaries that they were held under the water by divers to make it look realistic. Scary thought!

    Sam and Dean would be out of a job! 🙂

    I loved Deans interaction with the boy. I think this is the first time we see Dean with children-and how he is so good at relating to them. I think its because he sees them as Sam as a child. He wants to protect them and give them the childhood he (Dean) never had, and what Dean wanted for Sam.

        1. Concerning our actors doing their own stunt work, I just found out our Dean and Sam did their own fight scene when Sam battles Shifter Dean (except for Sam flying into the book shelf )

          Jensen and Jared make dance out of blows and blocks and close combat.

            They do great fight scenes! As they got more famous they are allowed to do less. I think Jensen did so most of the fight scene in Executioners song and the other fight he had with the demons at Cains house.
