Supernatural 9x23 Do You Believe in Miracles
TAKE ONE - THE QUICKIE VERSION
(I'm calling this take one, because when/if I watch again I might have a "better" review - then again I may not.)
Okay, so I had the extremely early shift on Tuesday, which generally means I wouldn't have been up late enough to watch Supernatural on the proper night, but since it was finale I made myself manage (and the review didn't go up this afternoon because I worked the late shift tonight just for the record), which was probably a mistake on my part. Don't get me wrong, I think I liked the episode and all that, but I didn't retain much from watching it either. So that means I wanna try and watch it again maybe in the near future.
Though I do remember thinking that perhaps that "unfair" commentary toward Metabore from another angel in a previous episode was correct - Metabore didn't want to wipe out humanity or anything like that he just wanted to be loved.
And I do remember thinking at the very end of the episode that I had totally called that - you know what I'm talking about. And this time, while I do loath stupid boys, I can actually forgive them for not seeing this coming, because Dean was obviously distracted by demonic feelings, and Sam was too wrapped up in Dean worry to think about long-term problems. However, I am very curious why Cass didn't say anything - I mean surely if Crowley suspected the outcome so would (and should) have Cass. Of course, I guess we are supposed to forgive that because Cass also had other things on his mind, but really ain't Dean supposed to be like his BFF.
I also remember thinking that at times I do feel like I misjudge Carver - more and more I do think the story he's trying to tell ultimately might not be so bad and perhaps if it didn't have to go through the process of going from his head to writers that don't seem to communicate well with each other and then moving through even more people still before getting to the small screen it might not feel so fractured (is the best word I can think of here), though I still think his ideas re: Sam do leave something to be desired. Seriously one of my first thoughts after the credits rolled was what would Carver have Sam do now - run off to get married or something, because this time from Sam's pov Dean was even more dead then the end of season seven.
