Today marks the installation of a series both I and the Collectress will be working on the next few months. We have a soft spot for the bad guy (or gal), and figured you might, too. This week’s villain of note is from a little show, not sure if you’ve heard of it, Supernatural, featuring Crowley, the King of Hell.
Name and Rank:
Crowley the former Crossroads demon, current King of Hell.
Snide comments, witty remarks and he came up with the nicknames “Moose” and “Squirrel”.
The Devil You Know:
Crowley claims he was born in Scotland, 1661 as Fergus Roderick McLeod. He originally sold his soul to a demon for 3 inches onto his penis to get him to those coveted”double digits”. The ladder-climbing demon became King of the Crossroads and Lilith’s consort at some point in time. He also speaks Enochian, is pyrokinetic and has telekinetic abilities, although he doesn’t flaunt his powers. The King of Hell’s eyes turn red when he goes demon and is the only one on the show to smoke red when he exits his meat suit. Crowley is always looking out for Crowley, although season 8 and 9 have given viewers a softer side of the top dog demon and put him in league with one of my favorite Winchesters.
Episode 09×06 AKA the Episode When Cas Worked in a Convenience store
Cas is back. After the heart-wrenching, feel-stomping, episode 3, Cas has been on his own for the past few weeks, and let me tell you, the fandom was pissed. Whether you ship Destiel or not, last night the hashtag #profoundbond trended worldwide as SPN fans showed their support via social network for the friendship of Dean and Castiel.
The boys are back in the bunker, and SPN cutie Osric Chau is back too. Kevin has found a footnote to Metatron’s angel tablet, and he’s hoping that it will give them a clue as to how to re-open Heaven (implied: getting Cas his wings back). Unfortunately, they cannot translate the dead language, so Dean takes this as an opportunity to go hang out with his boyfriend to check out a potential hunt that Castiel called him about. The episode is split into two focuses (focii?); one plot focuses on Sam and Kevin as they interrogate Crowley for information on Metatron’s footnotes (love Mark Sheppard’s snark) and the other focus is on Dean and Castiel’s investigation of a few mysterious deaths.
Episode 09×03 AKA the Episode Where Cas Loses “It”
We all knew this episode was coming, and I think most of us half-anticipated/half-dreaded it. But, in case you’ve been living under a rock, here’s the biggest spoiler in last night’s episode: Cas is no longer a virgin. Yup, he finally gave it up (no, not to Dean. Settle down, Destiel shippers) and he is beginning to realize what being a human is all about.
Dean’s Best One-Liner
Dean had a lot of really fun, sarcastic quips, but this was my favorite:
“I read ‘pie.’ The rest is just blah blah blah.”
This episode had a lot of feels in it, so please forgive any ranting, raving, or spontaneous weeping that occurs.
