I had thought about this for a while, and yesterday thought about putting this up on IMDb and someone else had beaten me to it. So I thought I no, my little angels would love to discuss this. So lets talk …. For along long time the word Canon threw me. I used to think was this an american term as UK shows have never I don’t think use this word. Other fandom words also throw me are Fanon and Ret-con, so little angels explain to Aunty B what these mean.
So has the show broken its own Canon in its story telling. Are there any area’s you know of which can/cannot be explained. Is this season deliberate in the fact that perception is at play. For example; the classic flaw this season, is Sam remembering their trip as children to the Grand Canyon and Dean also recalls the fun memory. Some say he was just pleasing Sam as he was having a turn due to the trials. Croatoan states back in Season 2 that Dean wanted them both to take a break. ‘Lets visit the Grand Canyon, Why Sam asks ‘Cause we’ve never been?’ So guys is it deliberate or have the writers not researched the shows history enough, or don’t really care about its past.
So the thought for the day is, can you share any hidden gems which others may not be aware of. That we can talk about as a group and may be discuss why the writers may not have thought this were not odd if its not deliberate. Or again, are they trying to be clever and fool us seeing if we do pick up on minute details. They do love to play with fans. So would they may be go back and visit those plots where a loop hole has slipped through the net, or forget it for all time. Are some writers in our team worse for breaking canon rules than others perhaps? Do we sense that canon is being regularly broken and we are not happy with these penned notes of history not being adhered to. What would there reason be if they had an incline that we knew. Is it inconsistent that the show breaks its own canon that it can fall flat on its face. Or does it not bother you that mistakes are being continuously made.
Bella continues to give her little angels a challenge, and awaits your views. So think on and re-visit some of those scenes in your minds and see if the writing is being kept to. Is season 8 full of canon that its spoilt the season and show for you, that the writing is up in the air. Can you really rely in our writing team to produce work that is true to its own canon. Type away guys and lets have a fun debate.
