Yeah, they need to do something more with the new guy to get things rolling.

I don't know about the rest of you, but Mjölnir could REALLY come in handy in future episodes.

Which brings up the question... Where is Thor?

We saw Zeus or someone didn't we a few seasons back at that meeting of the old gods? Seems like Thor would want his hammer.

Not sure the point of tonight's episode, so there are lots of gods in the Supernatural Universe, we've seen that before. Kind of felt like a place holder episode, but it's way too early in the season for that.

I wonder if you die in Purgatory if you are dead or go some place else? Seems Dick would have been there some place itching for a rematch.

I hate to say this, but all things considered, it looks like it's time for our God of Mercy to take the boys to Paradise.
This series seems to have run its course....frown.gif

Last episode seemed like Supernatural's take on the movie Chronicle. Watching it unfold i knew what was coming, but I enjoyed the story. Good episode.
post #1839 of 2202
Really enjoyed last night's episode. imo, the best of the season.
post #1840 of 2202
Got to say that is not saying much. For me so far this entire season has been phoned in. The wheels have been spinning and I keep waiting for some traction but all we get is flying mud. The Kevin thing looked interesting, but they dropped it. The purgatory thing might be interesting but they are stinging it out too long. Same with Sam and his girlfriend, bits and pieces. Grab something and dig in with it.

Seemed like a "filler" episode because they figured people would be doing something else on Halloween night and not watching TV.
post #1842 of 2202
So we bought Season 1 on blu-ray. Have to say, we watched the first episode and all that time and that episode holds up with most shows on TV today. Acted well, looked great, good special effects. Really impressed. Glad we purchased it, I forgot a lot about what happened. Well worth it and the blu-ray set was pretty cheap.

Based on what ive seen so far this season the only differences between this season and the first is that the lighting in the first season was a lot darker and the colors less saturated.

Otherwise the show is almost back to square one. No other characters in the mix, Sam whining about how he doesn't want to be a hunter and would rather be in college, road trips and monsters of the week ... I wouldn't be surprised if Dean forgets what year it is and starts looking for their father again.
post #1844 of 2202
The most odd thing to me... is Dean being mad at Sam for "taking a year off" when that is exactly what Dean did the previous season when Sam was in hell (well, Dean thought he was anyway.)

Sam makes Dean promise not to try and save him... to have a life... Sam goes to hell, Dean has a life... after a year Dean finds out Sam has been back all that time but only reluctantly goes back to "the life"

Lather, rinse, repeat this season with the roles reversed... Each brother got a year off to be normal... seems like balance has been restored.

I thought the exact same thing. The only way I could see Dean being entitled to his high horse this season is if during his year off he accepted that he was meant to be a hunter and couldn't stay in the domestic life.

Right now I can't remember if that was the case or if he was just thrown back into the mix against his will.

Either way the character arcs are all over the place now. When Dean went to Hell, Sam became a hunting machine trying to get him back. This time around Sam decides "nah, been there done that. Dean's dead. What's on television?"

LOLOLOLOL!

How many times can Dean get banished to a netherworld? I mean, first time Dean screwed up, Sam tried to bail him out. Second time Sam is probably thinking "Again? Come on, at least I only got sucked into a hell dimension once and that wasn't my fault."
post #1848 of 2202
Don't forget the time when Dean thought that Sam was locked in the cage with Lucifer and Michael. He stopped hunting and got a family too--the same thing.
post #1849 of 2202
They at least semi-addressed the elephant in the room... the "wait, you did that too" aspect... though they kind of glossed over it.

Also... I can't be the only one who saw Garth's Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Bobby hat
and immediately thought... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Object owned by deceased, strong emotional attachment... why can't Bobby come back for his hat like he did the flask?

Garth alternating between silliness AND believable seriousness worked for me... showing competence while also maintaining his innocent streak.
post #1850 of 2202
While it was an improvement, again this same plot device has been used several times in the past. At this point I'm totally fed up with Dean's attitude, it is out of character, annoying and is dragging the entire show down. Writers get a clue and move on.
post #1851 of 2202
They need to add that character as a perm. member. He was pretty funny last night.
post #1852 of 2202
You idjit!

Garth is OK in small doses, no way I'd want to see him every week.

+1 - Comic relief.

It appeared as though he was being groomed to permanently replace Bobby.

The series REALLY misses Sir Bobby, it isn't nearly as good without his ugly, nasty mug around....wink.gif
post #1856 of 2202
Bobby made things too easy for the writers, but added soul to the show. He seemed to have a vast library to pull whatever book was needed at a moments notice. The showed Samuel's library once and seemed to drop that plot point. For me without the requisite big bad for the season the show is lacking. They introduced the tablet as a way to end the show, perhaps they need to do it this season and call it a day - so far it seems like a bunch of filler episodes this season.

No argument here....wink.gif
post #1858 of 2202
I just caught up on the last 4 episodes....They mentioned Chuck as a prophet and Cas says he's dead, now that Kevin has "come off the bench"

Whatever happened to the archangel that was protecting Chuck? Shouldn't the archangel be protecting Kevin too?

And on a side note, I can't believe it's been 10 years since I registered on avsforum. Goodness.

Leviathans a/o disarray among the angels since Cas went "nuclear." Take your pick ...
