  1. Wow. What a sight to wake up to...๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ’–
  2. They could use that top pic in the dictionary under the term "smoldering". ๐Ÿ˜
  3. I wonder what Jensen really thinks of this sl. ๐Ÿง๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ฃ
  4. I've been watching non-stop since last week, and I have to say the old episodes sure do stand up well. I watched John's funeral pyre today and got so teary-eyed at the thought of watching something similar for Dean. ๐Ÿ’”
  5. This is Dabbernatural in which canon doesn't exist-unless Dabb wants it to-then it does. ๐Ÿ™„
  6. It's strange. They restarted the series again on TNT after taking us to mid S5-something I can't recall happening before and I've been able to re-watch every episode since then and I have to say that these early episodes really appear to be superior in so many ways other than the writing. The wonderfully subtle musical cues and the amazing cinematography are most notable to me in this regard. And the familial stuff was just so, SO! promising from the writing standpoint back then. I guess for me one of the most disappointing aspects of the show as we wind down is that, IMO, they didn't really do the core familial relationships justice through the writing in that there were imbalances and blatant inattention to some of the biggest reasons for many of the numerous dysfunctions-and some of them were even perpetuated via the writing w/o their even being alluded to as extremely problematic, in any way. "Family" is everything and more important than "anything" was portrayed and explored in a very superficial way, IMO and AFAIC, because the parentification of Dean-one of the biggest problems within the Winchester family unit-was never really explored in a truly in-depth manner and it was something that I was so hoping to see when I first became a fan of the show. That Dean's journey might end w/o even an acknowledgment of how deeply the parentification affected him will always seem like a failure on the part of the writing of this show for me, and that's sad, but Jensen's portrayal of what it did to Dean and how deeply it affected his character will never be lost on me, especially when I watch these early episodes. Dean will always be the tragic hero of this show for me and after watching the show from the beginning again, I'm now more positive than ever that even Dabb's pettiness in these last seasons will never change or affect that feeling for me-not in the least. Indeed, I think I feel it moreso now, and in all honesty.
  7. My fear is that he wants to burn it all down to the ground so badly that, like those shows Aeryn mentioned, any kind of a spin-off or furthering of the story through a movie, would not receive the necessary backing in order for it to happen. I wonder if we'll ever get more on what's presently happening BTS of this show. Clearly the network was not ready to end it. Not with the news that renewals for s16 and 17 were already in place.
  8. I think that Jensen is concerned about what the fandom reaction is going to be to the ending that Dabb has planned. He knows the fandom and how attached they are to the characters and if either or both brothers die, or if something happens that might seem ooc for either brother, he wants it to be remembered that, as Aeryn said, the show is a work of fiction and in any work of fiction-especially this show with a supernatural theme-anything can be changed or redone because anything is possible in a fictional world; and again, especially in the fictional world of Supernatural. I think he is most worried about an over-reaction to the ending of this story set in this fictional world from a fandom that has so very often shown and stated how very real these characters seem to be to them(the fandom).
  9. I'd easily take her over godstiel and the Leviathans, too.
  10. IA and this sounds like a great ending to me. ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘
  11. I think it has been a great season for Sam. I further think that s12-15 have been great for Sam, since Regarding Dean when, IMO, Dabb(for all intensive purposes) completely killed off the complex character who was Dean Winchester and that was previously written, more often than not, in all of those previous seasons, and replaced him with a Dean Winchester who was narrowly, strictly, and only written to prop and pimp ALL the other characters on the show now(and instead of JUST Sam) when he wasn't being written as strictly and only the comic relief. And I think it's for this reason, more than any other, that the show is ending now, at least two seasons before the network hoped it would end. And I wholeheartedly applaud whoever first put that thought into words and I think it's easy to guess who that was, ESPECIALLY given the no-holds-barred, utter ugliness and pettiness that almost the entire writing room is showing not just the Dean character but, IMO, the actor who portrays him also. At this point, the finale being more Dean-positive is just a pipe dream, IMO. I would take it completely as his due, if that's what happens, again, especially after the treatment he's received for the past 4 seasons, but I can in no way expect it or hope for it from this set of writers. No way. Not at this point.
  12. I think it's either one of two things that bothered Jensen and I'm going to spoiler tag because one scenario has to do with something that JP may have already spoiled... Personally, I'm hoping that Dean dies. It's the only way that I can see any sort of real "peace" possible for an IC Dean, and this, yes, even if he winds up in Purgatory. The part that has always been the most worrisome for me, is not just that Jensen was uncertain about it, but moreso that JP loved it.
