No one has anything to say about this one? I admit I had to do quite a bit of FF'ing because the witchy guest stars were so bad and annoying that it was like fingernails on a chalkboard. And I refused to sit and listen to Sam whine about his Hell/Luci experience AGAIN after having suffered over two full seasons of that crap, especially when Dean's Hell experience is still mostly ignored and treated for laughs when it is brought up. Boo-hoo Princess Samantha, suck it up.
And, of course, Rowena played the crap out of Sam anyway to get the page she wanted, as he has now allowed her to be massively more powerful than she ever was before, which could lead to serious problems later. Though I suspect Rowena will be both frenemy and enemy depending on what the script needs that week, much like Crowley was for most of his run. At least Dean figured out Sam's bone-headed move, so a point for him. Otherwise, it's obvious the Winchesters were just there to be played the whole episode. Boo, Yockey.
I was reminded by a friend about the whole Empty thing at the beginning of the season, with Misha's weird double with the bad accent, and the hint that Castiel may not be alone in his vessel - once again. Forgotten about that since it's been so long, but Cas wasn't quite himself in this episode - a little too snarky and confident, which is why it just seems like it's not entirely him. But who knows if that's really where this story is going.
I'm happy enough that Rowena is back because Ruth got such a bad deal last season given the whole showrunners vs Mark S. debacle. Of course, it depends on what they do with her after this if I remain happy enough.
And I guess the annoying sisters were supposed to be some kind of mirror of the Winchesters in their goal to get mommy back which I wish they'd take to heart, but of course won't.
It had some good parts, bad parts and mediocrity so overall, for me, it was average. I had some second hand embarrassment with Dean under the witches spell, and cringed several times. I did enjoy Cas. He was pretty smart about his strategy to escape by using Luci (who was a little less boring to me than usual, surprisingly) and not being duped by him at the end. There were some brief moments where he seemed just slightly off to me too. Not sure if it was meant to hint at something being wrong, an effect of being locked up with Luci for a length of time, character development or reintroduction of some of his former qualities, or if they just threw a bunch of words down on paper and said "WTH looks good enough". It's difficult to tell.

I liked the direction and acting better than the writing (which was a bit pants). Was fun to see Rowena again and surprised to find Sam's moping understandable this week. I'm guessing there's more to her resurrection than she's telling. The witches, though properly horrific, were paper thin and kind of a drag. Though the fight choreography was good this week.
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.
Oct 12, 2017 20:17:07 GMT -5
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.
Oct 12, 2017 14:18:09 GMT -5
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.
Sept 23, 2017 16:37:18 GMT -5
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: As for Creation, this is why I work them.

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.
