This meta is a bad actress.  


OH MY GOD POOR DEAN.

I'm sorry, but how BROKEN are these boys? They don't even remember how to relate. There's no heart to their brotherly bond anymore - it's a closed-off, sterile working relationship between them because they're both SO damaged. But it's Dean who's more damaged, that much we know. And if he thinks he's gonna be able to make that work, that whole smiling, one-day-at-a-time thing...

no, if the SHOW doesn't realize how "surface" it is...

I mean, I get that they need him to be in a good emotional place in order to make next week's episode work. But if that trip doesn't have something to do with where they're going emotionally - if there ISN'T a break in the offing for Dean - it will feel fucking cheap.

So this is where I stand with SPN right now. I dig some of the different modes of storytelling they're doing. But I need to know that there's an emotional journey still not undertaken, because there's too much cruise control right now and not enough drive. These boys can break or they can heal, but they cannot go back to the way things were just like that, and it's the uncertainty as to whether the powers that be see that, that keeps me hanging on edge.

Are they trying to just put a fix on things? It doesn't seem so. They're bringing up enough topics - of quitting the life, of children and legacies, of revenge, of tragedy compounded upon tragedy - that it makes me want to have faith. But if the boys are not in an emotional place for a comedy episode, you can't do a comedy episode just to relieve the tension, and I'm worried next week will be a bit too lighthearted.

Well, it is what it is, and I'm stringing along for another week.

If only for the bowler hats and suits.

I dunno- the dimness in Dean's eyes at that last scene gave me some hope. (Also that smile freaked me out, what the fuck)

I dunno. I remain hopeful.

also crissy was the most badass woman on this show ever.

AMEN SISTER! I feel like a damn yo-yo right now! Even more than Dean, how has Sam not broken with this considering how fragile he must be???? I wish they would stop with the bringing in of nonsense "Gods" and do something with this storyline already! I also feel cheated for not knowing what happened to Bobby in the end. Did they burn his body or bury it? *sigh*
