This one feels like a 6.5 or 7. At this point I feel like most of the episodes are running fairly consistently in terms of story and rating. Next week is probably going to break that consistency, at least in my books, when my least favorite character returns.
Weirdly I started to like Billie last year when she took on the mantle of Death - she became way less annoying, and it's like the actress finally found her groove in the role and brought a bit more gravitas to it or something. I even like Jessica the Reaper. Though there lingers some irritation by the way Carver completely busted Reaper canon by making them just another angel-like presence that can pop in and out without anyone having to die or be close to death to see them.
I have to wonder about Billie's words to Dean that she'd see him soon, if that has anything to do with what Jensen was talking about WRT the end of the season.
Mostly this episode felt like a reason to officially confirm Rowena as the resident McLeod frenemy to the Winchesters. The one big problem I had with that storyline is how unbelievable it is that Rowena would suddenly care so much about Fergus/Crowley to want him resurrected. Please, she couldn't stand him and never had a single maternal feeling for him from the day he was born. I don't buy it - but, like I said, it just looked like the excuse Yockey used to give her Crowley's role in the Winchester's lives, particularly now that Asmodeus had already been dispatched.
For once I actually thought the Heaven storyline was interesting, with the angel numbers depleted so badly. It makes sense now why they were willing to follow Lucifer for a while, thinking/hoping he had the power to create new angels. It's a little annoying that no one mentioned to Castiel that Lucifer had been there - and I did get the impression he had moved on and was no longer in Heaven - but they certainly alluded to him. I'm guessing this is where Gabriel might come back into play, with a bit of a redemption arc in helping to put Heaven back in order. We'll see.
I don't find it hard to believe that Naomi would fake her death, but I do find it hard to believe that she was in hiding so long after Metatron had been dealt with.
All in all, I found it watchable. I wonder if this will be Yockey's last script - certainly it would be if his series is picked up.
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)

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...
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.
