It's that they routinely kill off / traumatize / psychologically damage every single character yet because of the nature of the show, said changes cannot
A) be permanent
B) be as bad as they theoretically should be.
Agreed. The other two major problems that make me care a lot less than I used to:
1) Every monster has become declawed.
At some point, demons were scary. Now they are even allies. Remember when it was a big deal to work with Ruby. Do the writers even remember Jus in Bello?
At some point, angels were awesome, unkillable "monsters". Now we have "goon angels" that are about as scary as the demons.
I'm sure if this show goes to 10 seasons, we will have a leviathan ally.
2) Most consequences of their actions are no big deal anymore.
At some point, exorcising a demon had tremendous consequences for the host. Does anyone remember original Meg and her host? That whole issue went out the window.
It feels like there is attrition of drama. I guess that's what happens when a show runs too long.
