I am so underwhelmed by that episode.
I mean the time jumps all over the place where Sam is magically talking to Metatron at a sketchy crossroad out of the clear blue sky. We all know how codependent Sam and Dean are. How the fuck was Sam escaping to talk to Metatron without Dean following him like the stalker he is?
(Also, that crossroad literally looks like the first one we saw Crowley at, anybody catching the subtle hint??)
And all this talk about Bartholomew…where did that story even start? I don’t remember him being involved in the last episode, or the one before. I’ve been busy so maybe I missed it, but I honestly can’t remember that name even being mentioned.
And then Cas acting COMPLETELY out of character, multiple times, in multiple ways…it’s just lazy writing. And don’t get me started on the whole stealing-another-angel’s-grace thing. Like Cas would ever do that, considering that is the EXACT THING THAT HAPPENED TO HIM THAT CAUSED THIS WHOLE SHIT STORM TO HAPPEN!
God forbid Cas remain an actual character with flaws and limits, no, we need our Get Out of Jail Free Card back. UGH. Don’t get me wrong, I love Cas to death. But this episode was not Cas. I don’t know who the fuck it was, but it was not Cas.
And now another “ally turned enemy”, big shock there. Yes, I will admit killing Kevin was huge shock value. But in terms of actual plot value, not so much.
I try not to complain about shows because a) it’s pointless, b) I hate wank, and c) nobody cares, but I am just so fed up. This semi-finale is not the show that I care for. This was just crap thrown at us in an attempt to get a reaction. Well, you succeeded. This is my reaction.
