That's Just not right
A very short, very negative reaction. Please be warned (I mean it. Not a happy camper - so, you know, don't click).

(*meep* and my comments are full of unmitigated bitterness too. So yeah. Don't read! You know the drill!)



That, quite possibly, has become the most rage inducing episode for me in the history of the show.

All I can say is FUCK THEM and their manipulative, canon and character destroying bullshit. I used to like Robbie, but now I'm just *side eyeing*

(I had a heap of stuff written up but I just couldn't post it. Too ragey and messy. I hope to gather myself and write a constructive crit on why that episode was the ultimate in mockery and manipulation. Or maybe it will come up in comments).

(and no, Dean calling "SAAAM!" didn't make things better - though the hair petting went some way in helping...;D)

ETA: Dammit, I have to add - making God real is the single worse thing they could ever have done. Just think about what he's allowed Sam and Dean to suffer (Rape, torture, loss etc etc). And think about how, with a snap of his finger he could change EVERYTHING. Every. Single, Thing. Curious to see how they write themselves out of that one.

Wow, I did not see this reaction coming from you...

I thought they addressed the issue of God not responding to prayers--albeit obliquely--in some of his chapter titles--'why you don't want divine intervention' was one--I saw it as his interference negates free will, and isn't 'free will trumps everything' the show's second main message (after family over all)?

Think back to the djinn episode in season 2--if John hadn't turned hunter, the people the Winchesters saved would have died. Fixing things for one person changes it for someone else...

And Metatron called God on it--said he was a coward...God is flawed too! Which reinforces that he shouldn't be looked to as the Deus ex Machina--only to turn that around and give us God coming to the rescue after all when there was no hope left for the Winchesters!

I couldn't believe that I liked Metatron by the end of it--he is the villain I have hated the absolute most out of all 11 seasons! I couldn't imagine how they were going to turn nebbish Chuck into almighty God, and yet I believed it, from God who just wanted to not be responsible anymore, just wanted to goof around, to the God who got really pissed at being called a coward, to the God who decided to accept responsibility for being too hands-off and get re-involved.

Maybe I get it from the perspective of being a parent--wanting to not be responsible sometimes...

I wish there was a way to make you see what I loved...I'm always distressed when you are :(

Me neither. And I am really sorry. I go into every episode with the plan to love it no matter what. I had high hopes for this one (hearing so many good things about it) and that might have been the issue. I just wasn't expecting a) God to be revealed as actually Chuck and b) that the amulet would return.

So yeah. I won't repeat my above ranting on your thread (some of what I'm feeling is in the above responses, but it's not fair I rant on your lovely positive comment).

Oh me too! I read your post but I think everything people are loving is in fact the things that make my blood boil the most. I'm not sure exactly why I've had such a visceral reaction to it, but yeah. I'm pretty bitter. And I don't want to be!! I hate feeling like this after an episode. I just feel like Robbie used manipulation in the most crass way and I will possibly not be able to get past that.

Though, as I always say, I'll see how it pans it. Maybe I'll just have to steel myself even more for the next 3 eps as they will all be myth arc. Or try to skip them (which, nah, if I continued watching after S9 I suppose nothing can stop me...*g*)
