My feelings on the mid season finale, for what they’re worth.
So, okay. First of all, I’m pissed.
This isn’t what I signed up for. Supernatural used to be this beautiful, cohesive, edge-of-your-seat, smack you in the face with sudden plot defining moments, kind of show. It used to be intricate with plot archs and really wonderful, multi-faceted characters. The kind that are so rare in television these days.
Now? Now I hate Dean Winchester. And I never wanted to get to this point. I never wanted to hate the very character that made me fall in love with the show. He was the hero. When I had nightmares, I would think of Dean, kicking the monster’s ass. And, yeah, it was silly. But I was like 14 and it made me feel better. He made the world safe.
Now I feel like cursing every time he opens his mouth. This is season nine. Why the fuck are we still lying to Sam? And who the hell are you to take all his choices away. Sam was ready to die. He was prepared to go. There comes a time when you have to stop being so fucking selfish, Dean.
And that’s it, right there. Dean Winchester is so selfish he didn’t even realize the consequences of his actions. He made war plans during an apocalypse, but he didn’t know that there was no possible scenario in which this would end well?
And as much as it hurts to believe that, you know what’s an even worse thought? He knew, but he didn’t care.
There’s no character growth anymore. We’re making the same mistakes, the same bullshit calls, engaging the same half-baked plans. And now all we have to show for it is another character death and more betrayal.
Fuck that. Kevin’s death was entirely unnecessary. I get it. We needed something that forced Dean to deal with Crowley. But killing Kevin? Yeah, fuck you too.
And now that Dean needs help, he’s yelling for Cas. Of fucking course. Because the entire fandom didn’t see that coming.
See? Zero growth? Dean still treats Cas like shit and Cas has done more for him than anyone else.
Also, who the fuck wrote Cas tonight? I excused the drunk scene (by the way the Destiel was overwhelming. Cas is such a flirty drunk) But the crime scene? Never have I ever heard Cas speak like that. That wasn’t even growth. That was shitty writing.
I just feel like I don’t even want to watch the show anymore. And that hurts more than Kevin’s death.
I feel like all the writers want is the biggest reaction from us. So they do whatever they can to get that. Even if it hurts. (And, God, does it)
