I have two monsters-of-the-week that I've really liked over the last 8 seasons.

Cry and the world cries with you, laugh and you must be watching some other show.  Or something like that.

My favorite Ruby was only briefly on screen.



I liked the way both actresses played Ruby.  I started watching SPN live at the beginning of S4 and so there was more suspense with Ruby 2.0.  I also remember her better.  I liked both of them snarking at Dean.  The character of Ruby was well done and although I didn't trust her, I couldn't tell what her end game was.  I knew she didn't have Sam's best interests at heart.  I think she really cared about Sam in her own demonic way though.  But she was also his dealer and she got him addicted on demon blood, something I don't know if he'd have found if it weren't for her.  The sex makes it all the more complicated in that Ruby was wearing coma girl at the time and Sam was drunk and grieving.  As far as the twisted physical relationship they had going on, Gen and Jared sizzled in their scenes together.  Even then, it seemed like more than just acting.  It feels weird to go back and watch I Know What You Did Last Summer because it feels like intruding on something I shouldn't be there for.

I should start this entry by saying that what scares me on the show has more to do with the set-up than whether the monster is nasty looking or the results are gory.  I hate to be startled.  When I get startled, I yell and my fight-or-flight reflex has me swinging.  I get even more freaked out by knowing I'm about to be startled but not knowing exactly when.  Jack-in-the-boxes and horror movies are not my cup of tea.  Scenes of utter stillness before scary action or danger that you know is coming but you don't know from where are what have me hiding behind a pillow, or my favorite defense, turning the sound off.  Ironically, with SPN, it's not really the intendedly scary stuff that usually gets to me, it's things like waiting for Sam to find out Dean killed Amy and have the ensuing fight.  I do hate the torture stuff and usually watch an episode around it.  As far as monsters go, ones that suddenly spring into life are utterly hair-raising.  Following that are creepy children and Dean's face getting warped by Ellie's hellhound-induced vision.

Cut so I don't have to look at creepy scarecrows and children…. )

It probably comes as no surprise that my favorite character introduction is Death's.  Up to that point, I would have said Castiel's arrival, followed by college Sam peeking around the door.  I've already gushed about Death.  (That just sounds wrong.)  As the fourth horseman arrived, we had no idea what to expect Death would be like.  Going by the appearance of the other horsemen, Death would probably be a person and come in some kind of pale colored car.  SPN delivered, and how.

Cut for caps and car talk….. )
