Never thought I would write a post like this about my all-time favourite show and current obsession. Hopefully it's a 1 time thing and that I'm back to joining in all the fandom-wide love and happy feels from next week

No pretty here... Enter at own risk )

Holy frellin' frell!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG! OMG! OMfrellin'G

Sorry, that's all I got right now. I am still shaking with emotion and shock and love for Sam and severe, severe dislike of Dean right now.

I always thought Dean couldn't do anything more horrible to Sam than lying to his face, going behind his back to kill Amy and then continuing to lie about it for weeks after. That and letting Sam shoulder all the guilt for starting the apocalypse even after Dean found that he broke the first seal. I was wrong!!!!! What Dean did in this ep, the fake text from Amelia, and not showing the least scrap of remorse about it is lower than low. Sam doesn't deserve to be treated so terribly and all to protect a vampire who is clearly falling off the wagon.

I think I have just watched my favourite ep of the season so far and possibly of the whole series. If not my fav, then definitely in my top 3.

The next 6 weeks are going to be pure torture waiting for Jan 19 and seeing how this goes and what Sam does and what Dean does and how they can possibly recover from this. Fandom is gonna be a very interesting place to be over the next month.

Didn't think I could possibly love this show and our boys any more than I already do, but I do, damnit!!!!!

Saw this tweet from @clarissa373 and my heart broke more than a little. Not because of the article which I haven't read as I don't want to be spoiled but from the (over) reaction it's apparently garnered from some corners of our wide-ranging, diverse and amazingly passionate fandom.

I know there have always been and will always be fights and flame-wars between different parts of fandom (Samgirls vs Deangirls, Wincester's vs Destiel) but it seems to be getting worse and more over the top. This is one more reason I try to stay as spoiler free as possible. So I can avoid all the fan-wanking and fights that seem to come with even the most vague spoilers. 

Blanket statement re: Castiel & Dean - if, perchance, you've read my recent Misha spoiler article (http://www.tvovermind.com/supernatural/supernatural-spoilers-misha-collins-reveals-castiel-fate/#comment-356401) please do not jump to conclusions about Castiel and Dean fighting or not speaking or whatever other assumption you might make just because I happened to write that Castiel and Sam might spend a little time together.

First, the two of them have had a rocky relationship, so there's hardly anything wrong with spending some time together. Second, Misha and Jared really wanted an opportunity to riff on each other in good fun. Third, Misha spoke about Sam because we happened to ask him something akin to "if Cas is jealous of Benny [which we know since it's previously been published], then might he spend any time with Sam?" It's a perfectly innocent question born out of an established dislike between characters (Castiel and Benny). Misha specifically said they had only just started to explore any dynamic between Sam and Castiel. That HARDLY means they're going to run off into the sunset together and forget all about Dean, Amelia and/or the dog.

There's no adverse Dean & Castiel conclusions to be made here. And it hardly means that Dean is going to be written off the show or SPN will become the Castiel/Sam variety hour (although that might actually be amusing). What happens with them or any other friendships is up to everyone - including me - to see.

So, it seems to me from what Clarissa has written here and reading some of the comments, that the Dean/Cas fans are upset, (jealous even) at the thought of Sam, (one of the 2 lead characters) having 1 or possibly more scenes alone with another major character that has been on the show for 4 seasons and who played such a significant part in Sam's storyline. That it will suddenly turn into the Sam/Cas show with Dean on the sidelines or even (gasp) written out of show!!!!

Funny thing is, I seem to recall all of these same fears coming from Sam-fans when Cas was introduced in season 4. The more things change, the more they stay the same, huh? And now, with Benny as Dean's new BFF & substitute brother, some Cas and Sam fans are feeling left out and having to commiserate each other.

I, for one, am really looking forward to seeing some more in-depth interaction between Sam and Cas. I even still have a tiny bit of hope that it may one day be revealed to either Sam or Dean or both that it was Cas who let Sam out of the panic room in 4:21, thus enabling Sam to kill Lillith and break the final seal.

To end on a lighter note, I got a chuckle out of reason #2: Second, Misha and Jared really wanted an opportunity to riff on each other in good fun.--- I just hope Jared will go easy on Misha and let him do his coverage without too much interference, but I'm not holding my breath that Jared will behave. Am hoping for some gag-reel goodies from those scenes.

Not sure how I really feel about the latest ep. I mean I did like it a lot but maybe I'm still on a buzz that hellatus is over and our boys are back. It took me a long time to get my head around the case and who was doing the killing and why.

I was hoping/expecting for a lot more Sam related flashbacks. Was really hoping that TPTB would/will devote equal time and effort to both Dean and Sam's past year in flashback, and yeah it is only ep 3 but I already feel that the Sam reveals aren't going to be as 'meaty' & explanatory as the ones we've had for Dean so far. I know it's not a competition but I can see fandom comparing every flashback we get for length, quality and the type of information revealed about each of the boys. So far, we've gotten so much more info about Dean than we have for Sam and as a Samgirl that's making me a little jealous/annoyed. 1 little 45 second flashback right at the end of the ep that really didn't reveal much is way too little, IMO.

I was hoping we'd see something from right after Sam and Amelia met. I still want to know what drew Sam to her when she was such a bitch (IMO) to him in the season premiere, but I guess we're only going to get dripped-fed tiny amounts of story as the season progresses. Being so intrigued about Sam's past year, I guess I just want all the answers right now.

I still love and always will love Dean, but I'm finding it a little hard to really like him at the moment. He is totally dismissive of Sam's feelings and desire for a normal life outside of hunting. The vibe I get is that it's Dean's way (hunting non-stop 24/7) only. Anything else is to be ridiculed. I am glad that Sam isn't backing down on expressing what he wants and just stepping into line behind Big Brother. This is something that Sam has wanted ever since high school, so it's not like Dean had no idea about Sam wanting a normal life. Heck he even encouraged Sam to get out way back in Season 1 (Shadow, I think was the ep)

Things I did love: Sam being a fanboy and geeking out over the QB. It's really nice to finally find out someone Sam looked up to and idolised as a teenager who wasn't Dean.
Another Thor reference!!!!! I still want to believe that Thor's Hammer is in the Impala's trunk and we'll see it wielded by Sam in future eps.
Sam tearing up after the flashback. He's still so sad and depressed and I just want to reach into the screen and give him a big hug. And though I know it's probably not going to happen, I'd like to see Dean be more supportive of Sam's feelings even if he doesn't agree with them. There were times when I wanted to punch Dean for being so pig-headed.
Sam eating that apple and visibly enjoying it. Dean's love of food is second only to his love for Baby, so it's nice to see Sam eating for pleasure and getting to enjoy the good things.
Love the 'there's no such thing as too much fibre' convo and Sam's look at Dean and his 'Thankyou/ See' exchange.
Dean's glee at getting the translation app. It's nice to see that the simple things can still bring a smile to Dean's face.

SPN comes back Wed, October 3rd. That's Thursday, 4th Oct Aussie time, 14 weeks or 98 days. Was so worried we'd have to wait til late Oct to see our boys, but this ain't too bad and if it does mean less mini hellatuses later in the season, then that's only a good thing.

And there are now S8 spoliers around, esp for ep 3 which Jensen is about to direct. He's back at work and according to some tweets from Jerry Wanek, in fine form already.


Gonna try for another spoiler-free year. Doing okay so far but as the season gets closer, I know it will be harder to not click on the all the goddies.

And looks like Jared is making the most of his last few days of time-off:

Jared Padalecki@jarpad

Must admit as much as I love scruffy beard Jared, I'm looking forward to it getting shaved off and "Sam" returning.

In less than 24 hours I'll be watching the season finale with [livejournal.com profile] ash48 & [livejournal.com profile] zebra363 . I envision much squeeing and WTH and lots and lots of drooling over gorgeous guys and beautiful cars (well, 1 beautiful car who we have all missed so much) and cursing and WTF with the inevitable cliffhanger and then mad, crazy, passionate dissecting with what it all means and where it's all heading for season 8.

Coffee and apple pie and lots of other goodies will be on the menu, too.

Supernatural renewed for an 8th season with word from CW's persident, Mark Pedowitz, " “I’m not looking at season 8 as the final year in any way, shape or form.”

It will air on Wednesday nights  in the US (Thursday morning, Perth time-- so yay, I'll still be able to watch it before work.)


It won't return until sometime in October!!!!!!!!! :-( That means a HELLATUS OF OVER 4 MONTHS!!!!!!!!.  The only silver lining is apparently this should be mean fewer in-season breaks. Seems like we had way too many during season 7, especially during the last half.

and saving the best for last--- THE GORGEOUS:

And not to mention gracious:

Jared Padalecki@jarpad

Here in NYC, SO proud of CW's new lineup for next season! Happy, humbled, and grateful to be back for an eighth season of supernatural :)
