SPN viewers must be singlehandedly keeping the rock salt industry afloat, and I'm guessing poor Kripke's face must be awfully sore by now ;)
No more deals, just no.
Amen! But, given that this is IMO one of the most ridiculously repetitive shows ever (same themes/storylines, same supporting character 'types', same primary character issues, same tired conversations...), I'm thinking we should keep that rock salt handy.
Dean is not restored to the badass, sarcastic, compassionate character he was before he was moved to Planet Woobie and made holier-than-thou.
I know, right?! The days when I found this character amazingly compelling, entertaining and just plain awesome feel like a distant memory. It's genuinely hard to transform a character as initially complex and vibrant as Dean Winchester into a boring, ridiculously saintly, unrelatable and generic marytyr, but somehow Kripke et al. have accomplished this feat.
Also, just for good measure: I will shoot Kripke in the face with rock salt if...
...he doesn't either make Sam deliciously evil OR genuinely likable again rather than making him this perpetually sulky, arrogant, quasi-'dark' yet utterly dull killjoy.
...he doesn't give us more female characters who DON'T fit his usual, utterly tired, weirdly idealized 'super sassy-but-underlyingly vulnerable, snappy, quasi-tough, 'one of the beer guzzling, down-to-earth guys despite being---of course---impossibly sexy' mode. (Er, sorry for the double negative, but hopefully you guys get the gist!)
