Can you imagine how Bobby is feeling about all of this up in Heaven? I’m not exactly sure if the Supernatural mythos works that way, since I think I remember Heaven as basically a “greatest hits CD” on loop for all eternity, but if Bobby could watch all of this unfold on Earth below, he’s probably going ape shit right now. That should be the spin-off. Bobby sitting around a version of his house in Heaven space, shouting at his TV broadcasting Sam and Dean, and throwing beer bottles at the wall as he yells “BALLS” or “IDJITS”. Way better than Bloodlines already.
Sam: “Dean, are you feeling alright? Seriously, we’ve been through like, nine years of hell. You can tell me anything.”
Sam: Is that a yes?
Dean: Yeah, yeah, everything’s perfectly fine. *bursts out laughing*
Now I have 20 minutes. This is gonna be fast, and probably scattershot, but here goes. Season 9 has had some high moments, and some low moments, with a majority of the lows occurring during the tail end of the season which is kind of surprising. The episode with sheriff Jodie Mills was surprisingly bland, and I like Jodie. I’m also getting kind of tired with how much of Supernatural just becomes “people lying to each other all the time” the show. We have Castiel lying to his followers, which surprise! leads to everyone abandoning him in the penultimate episode, and Dean is now in Angst Blade mode which makes him twice as angsty, twice as powerful, and twice as full of lies.
Aside: I like how the writers were probably sitting around their poorly ventilated room, bouncing ideas off of each other, and someone said, “Hey, remember when Sam was all hyped up on demon blood and thought Dean was like, weak? What if like, what if Dean does that instead?”
Speaking of the Angst Blade, I was disappointed how easily Dean used it to dispatch Abaddon. Supernatural has a problem with villains dying in a minute or less in a pretty anti-climatic fashion. While it was cool to see Dean use the blade to overcome Abaddon’s force powers (seriously, that moment when Dean force pulled the blade from the floor? That whole boss battle was Star Wars-tier), I’m not really satisfied with how they got rid of her since she was such an interesting villain in the show. While she could probably never become a second Crowley given her penchant for evil and murder, I would have liked to see more of Abaddon and the vessel she inhabited given her relationship with Henry Winchester. I doubt it could have happened, but it would have been neat if Sam and Dean somehow forced Abaddon out of Josie’s body, adding another Men of Letters character to the show (seriously, the Men of Letters is the coolest addition to the Supernatural mythos and it’s barely touched. Why wasn’t the spinoff related to the Men of Letters instead of more Vampire Diaries melodrama?) I’m not quite sure how that would work though since Abaddon actually died as Josie and all that jazz.
Ah shit, two minutes now. Tamoh Pennikett is great as Gadreel, and I’m really hoping he lives through tonight’s finale because the show could honestly use more characters. I’m also hoping that Castiel’s new waifu-in-training, Hannah, doesn’t die tonight, but since she’s a woman and Supernatural hates female characters, chances aren’t looking good for her. REMEMBER TESS? Since when are reapers angles?
What do I hope happens tonight? Some good stuff. Hopefully nothing dumb. I have a feeling Dean will somehow ruin everything. I’ll be back after it airs.
idek man she just walked into my knife i swear i didnt do it

Supernatural writers: Pst hey remember Tessa?
Spn fans: Oh my god, Tessa! We missed having a bad ass female character on the show! Other than Abbadon, there has really been no bad ass characters in season 9!
Supernatural writers: Oh, did you guys think that she was going to STAY?
Does anyone else like it when an old character (usually an actress) pops up on Supernatural and they’re like “oh it’s cool to see you again” but then they’re like “oh wait you’re dead now” : /
I really don’t like how they got rid of Wells like that, mostly because he was empirically the best character on the entire show. I literally don’t care about anyone else; they have the depth of a sheet of paper. Bellamy is starting to develop some character, but Clarke’s just flat out boring, and the only time she actually showed some emotion was when she got intoxicated on whiskey that should have been kept for antiseptic or something.
In three episodes, Wells:
1) Buried Chuck and Lance, (I gave them names - the idiots who died before they even got to Earth) two people he didn’t even know
2) Stood up for order instead of chaos
3) Did everything that a smart person would do
4) Kept secrets even though he didn’t want to
5) Let Clarke hate him because he watched The Dark Knight a lot and wanted to be like Batman
6) Beat Julian from Continuum
7) Identified every fauna known to man (He got A’s in Earth Science, too based)
8) Got killed by a girl who is clearly way too old to be that stupid (seriously, what 12ish year old believes her nightmares are real? WHY THE HELL WAS SHE ON THE POD IN THE FIRST PLACE? Did they notice a crazy little kid was clearly missing on the roster?)
Seriously, I would cull the entire cast and just have Wells create a small utopia on Earth, then when the people from the Ark show up, they could see how wrong they were to send the other 99 kids down.
I’m not sure if I want to tune in for these other losers. Jasper should have died twice since he clearly died the first time he was speared. Seriously, he was dead in that scene, but the producers liked him so they brought him back for more episodes. WELLS 4EVER.
