More jumbled and unfocused arc story, Cas back to being an angel again in the easiest way possible, angel swords rushing in to solve a problem as quickly as possible, numerous story holes and bad characterization, Sam becoming completely nutso for the third or fourth time to give Jared something to do ...
I particularly liked the way human Cas can undergo extreme torture yet act like absolutely nothing had happened long enough to have a casual conversation with his captor. Maybe he will die yet again or be back back to human form in a month? Whatever state he stays in this season I'm sure stupid old Cas will create more havoc and chaos. When he isn't creating civil war in heaven, letting out Leviathan, or being fooled into kicking angels from heaven he's being tricked and tortured. Cas is becoming the dumbest character in Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
I have been saying for years: Cas needs to go.
He was cool for an episode or 2, but has become very annoying and in no way does he deserve a front row seat in the Dean & Sam Winchester story.
The showrunners have become very lame over time.....
Gadreel? Another character brought into the mix just for kicks. Especially since he was described as the protector of Eden, yet we already had Uriel seasons ago who was the established and feared guardian of Eden.
I am looking forward to the comedy episode in which they find the angel sword factory, because those things are everywhere now. Thrown around and left lying about so they can lazily solve a plot point or create some vacuous action scene. Remember when angels and demons were tough to kill and presented real threats? In the fourth season Cas could destroy entire buildings just by being in the area. Now a quick poke with a sharp stick is all takes to kill them. You don't even need an angelfire trap to ambush them.
A testament to lazy writing.
At least Kevin is dead? I wouldn't be surprised if the show resurrects even him now.
PLEASE don't say that!
