So i feel the need to get this out, since i missed the watch party over at SPNPARTY, but I need to talk about it. Won't happen too often though, so don't worry.
um. I loved, loved, loved last nights ep, even though apparently, i’m alone. but here’s why; are you ready for a novel? cause i’m about to write one.
I think people are mad for good reason; these aren’t the boys we fell in love with 5 years ago. But that’s how stories work, how life works. people change. the bond is not gone though; it’s different. as with last nights ep, i think i’m happy with it because it finally cemented something. Cause i’ve been irritated with Sam and his aloof, cold demeanor and so what happened last night affirmed something with me that a few people had been saying.
That’s. Not. Sam.
It’s not. And if it ends up being him, just fucked in the head, I will leave this fandom and never return but i’m sorry. It’s not Sam, it’s just not. It’s some sort of Samifer hybrid, or something, but either way, there is something supernaturally wrong with Sam. And i’m okay with that, because it creates a conflict which is essential in story telling, and will lead to the eventual, and hopefully pleasant, resolution. The only think i’m not okay with is the uncertainty in regards to how long it’s going to take until they dispel whatever it is, and they gang up, together, on these Alphas.
What sucks is, they’re never going to be Season 1 and 2 Sam and Dean again. But come on. They’re older dudes. They’re not kids anymore, so it’s almost fitting. I would like to see them joking around again, and just comfortable to be around each other. Like i said, i think the reason I liked this episode was because we have some concrete evidence that that’s not Sam, we’re GETTING somewhere. Before, it was like, why is Sam such an asshole? Well, still being Lucifer would be a very legit reason to me lol. If it’s just him, not being affected by Hell, well then. Show, we’re gonna have it out. But remember, Kripke still signs off on everything before it’s done. Do you really think he’d let the foundation of his entire creation (family, the brother’s bond) be dispeled? I may not agree with some of ways season 5 went, but I don’t believe that. Resolution is coming. It will be okay. There is an entire season of story to go; these episodes are just stepping stones to getting there.
Maybe i’m just optimistic; maybe i’m just hoping for something that won’t happen. But i know Sera and Co have written some of my favorite eps ever, and I just can’t believe that they’re gonna run out now. I believe they have something for us. It’s different, and kinda unstable at the moment, but I feel like it has real opportunity to either flourish or fade. we’ll see. This show owns my soul lol and I’m not generally the type to get this caught up about one, especially for this long. i have faith in the writers; aside from a few missteps in eps (esp in season 5, i give you that) they’ve never let me down. I don’t think they’ll start now. hopefully i’m right
