Since its the holidays, and I’ve run dry for season 8 topics and since I get the majority seem to enjoy a Sam topic. How did we really feel about soulless Sam? Did he do it for you. Did you prefer him this way. Was his persona as you would expect Sam without a soul to be? Where the writers brave in embracing Sam without a soul? Could we see what the writers were trying to put across, with a different side of Sam that we might not have seen? Did this story live up to its full potential. Could it have been delivered any differently?
Even looking back, I sense the plot was drawn out, and longed almost at the time for it to be over. It filled me with dread, actually. Even now when I think how long it took Dean to really register there was something very wrong with his brother, the story still dragged. Could I have shouted at Dean, yes. Why did the writers drag and milk it for all it was worth? Did soulless Sam really prove anything. Could the show have done without the inclusion of soulless Sam, and did it really do Sam any favors in the long run?
Did being without a soul really affect Sam later on, had that soul actually been so damaged that its causing him problems now in the present day. Could this be why Sam is acting out of character. His place mentally can’t be that sound at present, and the way he’s been behaving has had a number of fans wound up. So what is really behind Sam acting the way he is now. Could his past be catching up with him, and rearing its ugly head again.
Aunty Bella would love to know how you really feel about Sam without his soul, and how he must have suffered, and how he coped without a soul. Did it really affect him physiologically? Could past events have really altered his personality in the present?
