    Maybe someone who would prefer he is not home investigating his wife's murder?

    Thank you for letting me know that.

    I also wonder about the circumstances of his wife's death. I never saw the original Walker, and don't want to be spoiled. She seemed as much surprised by something, as well as terrified running for her life. What did she say? Something isn't right? As if what she had expected is not the case or discovered something or someone out of place. So, I didn't get the impression it was just a band of criminals that she encountered.

    I liked it! The show has lots of energy. I particularly enjoyed the sense of being dropped into the story already in motion. It felt natural, allowing me to get to know them on their terms, while I engaged. A bonus is that I was expecting to see Sam playing Walker and perhaps resist. Pleasantly, I accepted Walker.
  5. Maybe. I doubt beyond crowning Jack king and all the retcon required to get there, that the finale for Sam and Dean was much more than an afterthought, whether written or rewritten. The point was to separate them, allow enough time to pass that no realistic continuation is plausible. Except that it is, and I am in the process of writing it.
  6. I don't know how much any were told about the ending. "Sam and Dean die; after years of struggle and strive, they are rewarded with Heaven." Sounds lovely and fitting. But, the shallow, almost vengeful, execution of that is deplorable. Maybe in contrast to Kripke's season 5 finale leaving Sam damned in Hell with Lucifer for all eternity while Dean attempts to live a normal life while drinking himself to death, this series finale did seem ok. As I think about it, what the hell is wrong with these people?
  7. I think Robert Benedict is fine, though much better as an endearing prophet and a benign God. I detest Misha Collins, at this point. I liked earlier Castiel; but, started to literally cringe whenever he showed up these past few seasons. By "cringe" I don't mean rhe overused modern meaning kind of cringe. I mean shrink away from as if from pain, irritation and embarrassment. Compounded with his perverting the interpretation of a poorly written and acted scene, he capitalized on it with his disgusting and rabid fans. I can't believe for a minute that Kripke enjoyed the maligning and destructionof his representatve, Chuck, only to be replaced by Dabb's representative, Jack. Furthermore, he never would have reduced Sam and Dean to shallow caricatures of their former selves, while kicking them to the corner to let someone else save the day.
  8. Perfect analysis of everything wrong with that scene and the overall message of the season. Vilify Chuck, take away free will that Sam and Dean always had, have someone win it back for them, turn that someone into a hands-off God, which was precisely what Chuck was before they retconned him, render Sam and Dean pointless, then kill them.
  9. I loved that whole story arc! Intense, and hillarious. "It's a sign." As I think about it, Season 2 is one of my top favorites, nestled in there with 4, 5, and 11.
  10. I loved Gordon! Well, actually, I hated Gordon. But, what a great character. So dedicated to his absolute pursuit of evil, that he couldn't make distinctions. And he had followers! I miss the good old days.
  11. And I thought I couldn't dislike Jack even more than I already do.
  12. Castiel's speech was awkward in not only the vague wording, but also the atrocious acting. I could barely understand what he saying. That was the primary problem with the scene. Some half-assed attempt at being ambiguous, just came off as incoherent. At the time, it seemed like an expression of achieving a kind of humanity via Dean. But in retrospect, it was clearly a last minute effort to pander to those who have exaggerated convoluted and completely fabricated ideas.
  13. My two cents with respect to this unfortunate aftermath. My initial reaction to Castiel's monologue was that it was some understanding on his part that, although he can never be human, he experienced what he could through his association with Dean and others. I thought the "I love you" was the ultimate feeling that humanity experiences. Dean's reaction was that of shock because his friend told him he would soon be dying, having made a deal, while Death is pounding on the door. There's a lot going on and much to process. How anyone could have interpreted Dean's silence as anything other than stunned is beyond me. I did get the brief impression of repulsion. This is not a reaction to a potential '"gay confession" but rather the way many react to sudden bad news. However, as a viewer, I found that monologue to be one of the most poorly written and badly acted scenes I have ever witnessed. This may also account for that hint of incredulity that crossed Jensen's face while Misha was hamming it up. I liked Castiel up until season 12. His focus on Jack, repetitive sappy dialogue, eye rolling and pursed lips were a chore to watch. Though, now, I have encountered Misha Collins. It is impossible not to. I have come to understand he gives his phone number out to depressed little girls and boys, capitalizes on selling his merchandise to them and serves as a beacon in the night to all their woes. He took it upon himself to interpret the monologue the way his fanatics would wish it to be without consideration for: his costar's interpretation of an 11 year old brotherly bond, the interpretation of the majority of less vocal viewers, or the ramifications of insults and injury to Jensen, the show and the viewers. His pale attempt to put out the fire he started and the flames he fanned is laughable and self-serving. He wasn't the hero of the story, and he is not the hero in this controversy. He's an instigator, an opportunist, a whore.
  14. Yes, I remember, which is why this new brand of Heaven reminds me more of standing in line in Hell.
  15. Most negative reactions I have are more about the season than the finale. The finale simply fit the final piece into a very uninspired, rather vindictive story. My principal problem was with recreating Heaven as this perfect place without want or cares. An eternity without struggles or accomplishments, sadness or joy and little do but visit others. How does this literal eternal peace satisfy anyone, especially Sam and Dean. Or Bobby, who feared a rocking chair, is now content with sitting on a stoop drinking a beer for ETERNITY. It's a child's understanding on Heaven. Looks fine on the surface, perhaps; but like everything else with this season, you barely scratch beneath the surface and it falls apart. An eternity of meaningless, quasi-existence where you get everything you want sounds like Hell.
