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.

What a weirdly dysfunctional episode. Parts of it did work for me--all the Sam and Dean scenes and the Chuck/God 'fare thee well' montage because I've always been a sap that way--but the bar scenes rankled like every post Swan-Song angel episode has done.

During the first couple seasons of the show, "demons" worked--largely because they followed a relentless logic that made them terrifyingly real. Demons felt just as real as the boys with their hand-made tools in the trunk and the hilariously seedy motel rooms and the grind of the life Sam and Dean had eked out for themselves as hunters. Demons made sense.

Angels after season 4...they make no sense to me. No sense whatsoever. Boring. An easy out. And unless they find a way out of this plothole, I can't see how "God" is going to fare any better.

Sam and Dean still do it for me, every time (hair petting for the win!) but I really wish the rest of the mythos would disappear into that infernal fog.

Haha! That's one way of putting it! :)

I honestly can't see how they are going to get around having God present. If the first thing he doesn't do next episode is ease the world's suffering (without a damn good reason) I will be immediately annoyed.

And yep! Sam and Dean still do it for me. And the upside is maybe with God here he'll take Amara with him (with the angels) and we can get back to the saving people, hunting things. I imagine next season will be the last one, so it will be fitting to have one season free of heaven and hell issues.
