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.

but they also completely ruined Chuck.

Yeah. Why couldn't Chuck just have been a conduit rather than actually God. I was holding onto that hope right up to the end of the episode.

The continuing destruction of past canon and things that I've help dear is bordering on unforgivable to me. I keep defending their motives (I even believed letting Lucifer out would be interesting for Sam's character LOL), but now I'm just seeing sheer manipulation. The clarity from that episode has been rather devastating to me.

and of course the cheap return of the amulet…

Oh man, I haven't even started in on the crass use of the amulet. *sobs*. Maybe because I've never been one of the fans calling for its return it just didn't give me that emotional punch that I think it was meant to. hee, instead I muttered "Oh you've got to be kidding". But nope. Apparently God rescued from the bin (because I will not believe Sam actually had it in his pocket the entire time). He could come down to get his amulet, but not help the boys out. :(

I also refuse to believe that Sam had the amulet with him the entire time. Though I'm afraid that's what Chuck was implying, with the "LOL, you wouldn't believe where it was all the time".

If the amulet was ever to return, it should've been a moment dedicated solely to Sam and Dean. And it should've been Sam or Dean's (whoever would turn out to have kept it) decision to bring it up. And it should've been about their love and renewed faith in each other, not about God deciding to show up after getting a good dressing-down from Metatron, of all people.

Which is another thing I just can't stomach. It wasn't Sam or Dean (or even Cas) who made the "humanity is worth saving" speech that convinced God to finally step in -- it was the sleazy, opportunistic bastard Metatron, in some weird attempt to redeem his character. The last time we saw him, he was filming a dying man for money, and now we're supposed to believe he considers humanity the best of all creation? Just no.

This! So much this. I knew the amulet returning had another layer that I just couldn't accept. And that is that it was forced upon them. It was a symbol of their brotherhood and now it's lost that connection. Their brotherhood had nothing to do with it's return. :(

And yes. Metatron suddenly caring for humanity was a hard pill to swallow. A character that's been hated for so long and now we are supposed to be all "awww, he's redeemed himself". Much like Crowley. Liking the "bad guy" could be an interesting angle, but I just don't trust they've thought it through on those levels.
