I have a feeling the Wayward Sisters arc will have considerably more Dean than Sam, since that storyline almost always does (because of Claire and Jody, but even Alex got more Dean time late last season than Sam time). Yeah, they're throwing in Missouri for a bit, but she's just there to introduce Patience. I seriously doubt she'll be sticking around--and by that, I mean they'll probably kill her off.
The thing is that aside from Missouri, the writers have pretty much never had Sam bond with PoCs, let alone WoCs. And the relationships Sam has with women are usually sexual. Even Ava was teased as a possible love interest initially. The few exceptions were either maternal or maternal substitutes. Dean is the one who bonds with women as a mentor or a friend. And PoCs. And GLBT folks. The writers just throw those characters at him by default.
Mary is far more closely tied to Dean than to Sam. I don't see that changing. There's just not much there between her and Sam to write about. They tried during the LoL arc and it fell very flat. It would be nice to see Sam form *something* with Mary, but it's never going to be as deep as her bond with Dean and it would have to be built from scratch.
Jack could be tied almost completely to Sam, I suppose, but with Dean actively trying to kill him, it could go either way. I know these writers (especially Dabb and the Nep Duo) can be stupid about conflict and try to force it in directions it doesn't naturally go, but there's just plain lots more conflict with the Brother who's trying to kill the New Guy than the one who wants to be buddies.
Castiel is never going to be anything approaching as much about Sam as about Dean. They have pushed that hard in past seasons, and Cas-and-Sam arcs have never worked. There's just a point where you gotta let that one go, writers.
Jensen has been on set a lot more than Jared recently.
I'll believe Sam has a grief arc when I see one. The writers have always consistently fumbled such arcs and ended up bunting. Or whiffing. (Hey, how many sports metaphors can I mix in here?) Jared promises stuff like that every season and every season, it doesn't pan out to much.
thesnowleopard: The season finale was better than last season's finale. Hell, the whole season was better than last season. Some episodes were worth watching. Others were kinda messy.

onali: Since I haven't been watching the show I don't know how some (former) dead characters have returned (in what form) but I have to say that I don't miss the show at all. Is it still worth watching or not?

onali: It's been a long time since I've been here. Only watched the Season premiere then .... nothing. Every now and again I watched what you were rating the episodes and yes I've seen some spoilers (can some people just please stay dead??!!!!!) (1)

SkeksisGirl: I'm not, and I think I'm gonna stop working SPN conventions. BTW, welcome!

gopacgo12: Ok, so is anyone here going to the Las Vegas 2018 Supernatural convention, because if so I will see you there, but i'd just like to talk to some others

thesnowleopard: I have to wait until tomorrow night to "live recap." I don't currently have live TV, just streaming.

paforrest: Excited is not what I'm feeling. But I've set the dvr, will live watch Gotham & Will & Grace, then The Good Place off the dvr. Maybe tomorrow I'll FF through SPN if, and only IF, I hear there's any good Dean.

onali: So ... who is excited for tomorrow? I still have to re-watch the last couple of episodes, but I am lacking the enthousiasm.

SkeksisGirl: Just FYI guys, Luxshine is going to be in Florida come mid October. She and I are going to be vending as artists at Spooky Empire. So much hugs and puppies to her when she's here.

luxshine: Thank guys. There was ANOTHER earthquake here today, but this time I didn´t even feel it. Just dealing with a bit of PTSD. So if you can send fluffy things and cute Jensen or Misha pics my way, I´ll appreciate it.

onali: Glad you all are ok over there.
Sept 22, 2017 19:31:28 GMT -5
paforrest: So glad you're okay, luxshine! Absolutely heartbreaking situation. And I'm terrified and devastated for Puerto Rico and the other islands impacted by Maria. Mother Earth is very pissed off at us.

luxshine: New Earthquake here in Mexico. Now... a bit more savage than last week's. But I'm ok!
Sept 19, 2017 20:37:51 GMT -5
SkeksisGirl: And now we may have Maria...

luxshine: I'm glad people from Florida are ok! We had a bit of an earthquake in Mexico, but other than three terrified kitties, I'm ok.

paforrest: Belatedly checking in from Florida. My roof held and no trees fell on the house, miraculously enough. Spent two days cleaning up debris in the yard, but we fared better than most, for which I'm grateful. But I feel for so many that are suffering.

SkeksisGirl: Checking in from FL, I survived Irma with power and no damage to my apartment.

SkeksisGirl: Oh, the new owners for Megacon are just turning it into a meat grinder. They've screwed over a lot of people.
May 27, 2017 16:59:57 GMT -5
paforrest: Yeah, I've been to a few Megacons in the past - they can be a cluster. But I was talking about how years ago I'd have been thrilled if a Creation SPN con finally came here. Now it is and I don't care and can't justify the money. Changing times.
