Season Six: Ups and downs, relationships new and old and full of unexpected appearances, trips and reveals. Let’s look at what worked and what should have been left alone…
Why? This is a nitpick really – but why did a full year have to pass for all these things to fall into place? It wasn’t a necessary time jump, not really.
Creepy can work sometimes – but it didn’t here, it was so, so bad. This felt like an unneeded branch off in the shift mythology and not a well executed one at that.
Truly, the entirety of “My Heart Will Go On” is a hit with me. It’s full of endearing moments with Ellen and humour with Balthazar too.
Definite potential and even using her as the Red Herring major villain was okay – hell, even the concept of her taking Mary’s form, all good. The problem? For a grand villainess of ancient days yore, she lacked flare, style and even mass production ability. Alpha Vamp exuded his age, wisdom, technique and authority where Eve had only some menace and had a shortfall in other areas.
A delightful mischief-maker to step in where we lack Gabriel. Balthazar was not only great fun but went out a hero ultimately too.
Much like the Phoenix, and other aged baddies, these were largely underwhelming. In fact, we didn’t see them do much. If they are truly so old, I expect less humanoid and more….awe-inspiring power demonstrations.
Unexpected, diabolical and truly paved by good intentions, Cas became a big-bad that was a surprise. And a good one in that-terrifying, dramatic, cliffhanger end, too.
Really, this is a nitpick. There seemed such fuss about Samuel, such effort involved to fit him into the story and then….his death is more or less uneventful (by Supernatural standards) and serves no plot purpose. Nobody really mentions or notices, making the whole of the efforts surrounding his incorporation into the previous story arc a wasted effort. At least other characters died for a reason.
This is a hit because as heart breaking as it is – it’s just so touching: I’m the guy who hit you…I lost control for a minute.” It gets me every single time – particularly when coupled with Dean’s expression leaving in the hall. You can almost pinpoint the moment his heart breaks. It’s simply tragic and beautiful.
