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.

Just gonna heaps hugs on you, woman!

You can DM me on twitter if you wanna rage. ;)

(I have very conflicted emotions about the episode, but I know why you're frustrated. I feel ya. There was stuff I superficially enjoyed...*hair-petting, cough*...but I was kept at arm's length by the writing. Didn't make me rage, exactly, because I knew what to expect from RT, but...anywho, ping me if you want!)

Thank you darlin'! I had a little rant season with JC. That helped at the time. And Bookdhal's comments on twitter strangely helped too. I was trying to pinpoint why I was so bitter about it and she put it into words (as she can).

In any other episode the scene in the police station would have had me squeeing. Hurt!Sam with protective Dean. Hero boys and deadly mist. I love that stuff! But Robbie's manipulation and mocking tone with the rest of the ep just made that even hard to watch. Bringing back the amulet was such blatant fan servicing that I just can't. I said somewhere else (maybe on twitter) that I'm ok with fan servicing (like Baby and Fan Fiction) when it's clearly that they know that we know. As in, they were contained episodes and designed as fan service. I know some don't like that, but I'm ok with it when it's like that. But this episode was actually an important myth arc ep - it was part of the overall story (unlike Baby and FF) and the fan servicing was off the charts. It just felt dishonest to me. And if there's something that I hate in storytelling is dishonestly. Sure, write badly, make a canon mistakes but don't give us what we think we want to make us love you.

And don't make God sing. Sure Rob has a nice voice and it was a lovely song but no. Crossed a major 4th wall breaking line and...*sigh*. Maybe it just shouldn't matter any more. Maybe the show really has been on so long that they can just do whatever they like.

Hee,looks like I ranted without the DM. I suppose this has been my chance to write some of the stuff I was attempting to do in my original post.

Aaanyway. Maybe it's prepared me more for the next 3 eps. I think they're going to be hard going. I'm going to utterly spoil myself before I watch so as not to be blindsided like I was in this one.

I almost didn't watch last night because I knew they were going to make Chuck, God and I didn't want that. Once they did, I found myself not paying attention, so I suspect I missed things I might have liked because I hated the Chuck/God thing so much. I'm going to spoil myself as much as I can for the next few episodes, too.

I knew I would hate this twist, I just didn't realize HOW MUCH I'd hate it.

I probably should have been more sure. I kept denying it. Even during get episode! I keep thinking any moment now there will be a reveal. I was at least hoping for Chuck to be a mere messenger or something.

I made a comment below that I think once I get used to God as Chuck and the amulet being back I will not feel so angry about it all.
