first thoughts re: tonight's SPN ep

Y'all know those tears of rage people were crying in 5.10 over Ellen and Jo, years before I got into the fandom?

I AM CRYING THEM. RIGHT NOW.

Except at least Ellen and Jo got to die heroically and bad-assly, fighting for a cause. Meg just babbled about unicorns, and died.

I'm not entirely sure I'm going to watch this show next season /o\

I suspect I will watch this show until there is no more Jared and Jensen to watch. I'll just keep getting progressively grumpier about it. *sigh*

I really thought I was one of those people who would watch this show as long as they kept making it. And maybe I will. I do like some things they're doing, but so much of it feels like re-runs lately, and not of the best bits.

*sigh* Maybe I'm just a curmudgeon, IDK.

Jared and Jensen are very persuasive arguments, though.

Fucking this. I mean. Fucking. This. Fuck.

I guess they could bring her back someway somehow but I don't see it happening, since she's always been a bit of a filler character on the bubble. But fucking hell. Just when I was all melty over her and actually dying over character progression.

I HATE EVERYTHING.

I started tearing up 1/3 of the way into the episode actually bc I knew as soon as she and Cas had the MOST ADORABLE MOMENT EVER that she was going to die. Bc this stupid show is just that predictable.

I really don't know why I watch, sometimes. I can't even say I'm particularly fond of ANY of the boys at the moment.

I'm so depressed. It doesn't feel real.

My rage is so blindingly hot and bright right now that I might actually have turned into the sun

As someone who cried those tears back in the day, I can only say I'm sorry. *sigh*

HI I HAVE NOTHING OF SUBSTANCE TO SAY BECAUSE I'M ACTUALLY STILL 2 SEASON BEHIND BUT MY ROOMMATE WATCHED THIS EP IN THE LIVING ROOM AND I ENDED UP WATCHING TOO (I was in the room when it started, and after the first two minutes involved literally a thousand dead fake!Deans and also mind control I had to stay, obvs) AND I HAD ALMOST NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE OVERALL SEASON PLOT BUT I KNEW ENOUGH TO BE CRYING TEARS OF RAGE OVER MEG. I LIKED MEG. AND I WAS ALL SET TO BE LIKE, "HEY S8 IS GOING TO MAYBE CRANK UP SOME MEG ACTION, COOL." AND THEN SHE DIED AND I AM SO SO ANGRY.

On another episode note (ish), I'd watched Swan Song, maybe 2 hours before I watched this ep, and right before I was distracted by RAGE, I was flipping out a little bit over the parallels between Lucifer!Sam and brainwashed!Cas beating Dean into a bloody pulp, then snapping out of it because of Dean (It's ok, I'm here, I'm not gonna leave you/we're family, we need you, I need you). Because parallels are my favorite. also what the hell happens between 5.22 and 8.17 with Dean and Cas? Because I feel like I might be missing a large piece of that story

BUT SERIOUSLY, WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT WITH MEG SUPERNATURAL?! SHE WAS SO FANTASTIC. AND THIS IS GOING TO MAKE ALL THE GREAT MEG I KNEW I HAD COMING IN S6/7 SOMEWHAT DEPRESSING, DAMN IT.

And that was my "I have very little idea what was going on in that episode but I'm angry" rant. I imagine I will still be angry when I get to s8 and watch it with appropriate context, and I will rant again, if perhaps more coherently...

You haven't SEEN the fabulous Cas/Meg stuff! You're missing all the in between! And yes, tons and tons of Dean-Cas in-between, too. WATCH S6.

Yeah, fandom's spent a lot of time pointing out the 5.22 vs 8.17 parallels. You are not alone. :D

SO FANTASTIC, SHE WAS. Actually, I gather that the actress has been having some health problems - it was pointed out to me that she spent most of the episode sitting down. So it's possible they knew they couldn't keep her and so they wanted to give her a send-off. Which is a little silly, since Meg could have just jumped bodies, but. It still makes me feel a little bit better.

I look forward to your slightly more coherent rants. :D
