What gets me is that Mercury singled out what Pyrrha’s semblance was so quickly, exactly as Pyrrha described it several episodes prior. There wasn’t any conjecture or anything, no “she shoved my attack away, it could be any number of means of deflection or misdirection.” No. One guess, spot-on, down to the wording.
Pity they didn’t show up a day earlier, else they could have learned about her super-secret semblance by watching through one of several giant windows as she hurled a metric ton of soda cans across the cafeteria through sheer force of will.

Fic Summary: It takes two angels on a snowy night to bring hunters Luke and Castiel Milton together again for the first time in decades - well, two angels and a looming apocalypse. As their brother Michael hurries to open the Seven Seals that separate humanity from it’s final judgement, the hunters and their angels have to struggle against heaven, hell, and all the morals in between to try and save the world and the all the mortals who have unwillingly filled it. That is, if in the end, it really is worth saving.

They get eighty miles, thirty towns, and two hours away before finally coming to a stop. The minivan and truck wait outside a trucker’s diner, squished in between Minnesota snowbanks, the wide parking lot and assembled herd of tractor-trailers making the aluminum-sided capsule look even smaller than it is.
Luke leans heavily over his coffee, sipping deep even though it’s still too hot. Castiel’s staring reverently down into his own, hair still ridiculous from his winter hat. Dean’s flipping through his menu with an amused grin. Sam’s sitting still. He has been since they got there.
"Well," Luke says. "That went about as well as I expected."
I’ve isolated the lovely piano-violin duet in episode one that could easily be argued to be Roman’s theme (seeing as how the same melody occurs in each encounter with him). It’s just after the narration, when we first get a glimpse of Roman as he’s walking down the terrorized streets of Downtown Vale.
As it’s part of the score, it technically doesn’t have a name. I took the liberty of calling it “Roman Candle.”
