...I don't think I was supposed to laugh at the heartfelt video and training the antichrist seems a wee bit stupid. Sam also has a less than stellar record with his powers when he had them so it's so amusingly arrogant for him to be doing it. Of course he waits until they're alone to do it. Super in character.
I did like the personal life life fallout from Missouri's powers and she thanked Dean after treating him like a minion. Low bars are nice. Again, fairly in character and not being awful to Dean. What an episode!
They killed an old character, they killed another woman... what a swift downturn for this episode, and it was looking so vaguely competent. The new teen looks like she's easily in her mid-twenties, as is the CW way. They got really hamfisted the further into her story we went. I watched That's So Raven as a kid, I don't need a monster version of that and it's basically "you'll be miserable either way." Yay!
Dean got to save someone and do stuff AND kill a monster. Wow. And get told he's still got it, what a nice episode for him.
Jack is smarter than Sam, tbh. Awkward.
I feel like I'm supposed to really like Sam in this but mainly I think he's a projecting idjit for the nth time. It showcases some major selfishness along the way while he really doesn't seem to be helping Jack. Always with the hiding shit and never learning. Naturally it's all Dean's fault but the blowup was satisfying. Even if once again they were doing it where he could easily hear...
JA is looking verrrrry good this season. I'm waiting for Dean to get his face burned off or whatever.
I'm so disconnected from the show that I haven't been able to muster any enthusiasm, be it happy or angry, to genuinely rate these episodes. They're all so meh that I just settle on a general "3" for everything. Seems easier, though I don't think they deserve much more than that.
I'm all for the brothers having separate storylines, providing Dean legit has one, so that was fine. I despise Misery, so I was good with her being offed right away. Besides, I always got the impression that's what was going to happen so that Patience the Boring Psy Kid would feel compelled to join Jodi and her wayward whatevs. Retconning Misery as a "hunter" was lame, but that's how Singer and Dabb roll.
I hated that Jodi threw Dean under bus at the end of this episode, so any little bit of fondness I had for her went right out the window. Fine, it just gives me reason #127 not to tune into the spin-off. Between Jodi acting like she knows better than Dean who has lived his whole life as a hunter, and boring Patience and her boring psy abilities that saved everyone - because apparently they were all bumbling fools without her - you're getting a great taste of the foundation of the spin-off, which will be how Jodi and her young hot chicks are SOOOOOOOO much better than the idjit Winchester brothers. Fully expected, but now entirely confirmed.
Otherwise, like I said, I have no real feelings about this episode one way or the other. Sure, Jensen was excellent in his Dean rant to Sam at the end, and I always love it when Dean gets that rare chance to stand up to Sam. And at least Dean got to kill something too - because, you know, Sam wasn't there. Though still surprising seeing as Berens et. al. are only interested in the spin-off and not the Winchester brothers in general, so it's shocking that Berens didn't hand the kill to Jodi or Patience.
I saw someone on another board say that even though they weren't at all enamored of this season, WRT Dean it was slightly improved because so far Dean hasn't been reduced to valium!Dean like he was all last year, and I agree on that point. At least, so far.
I FF'd through most of Sam and Jack, but I could tell it was hella boring. Sam was an ass, per norm, and of course Dean is being set up for a fall, which is predictable as hell, and to which I say to the showrunners, fudge you. The relentless woobification of the demon seed is truly barf-inducing.
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.
Sept 20, 2017 7:25:07 GMT -5
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...
Sept 19, 2017 13:10:20 GMT -5
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.
