I am beginning to feel a pattern when viewing later episodes, and going back and re-watching earlier episodes. I found myself moaning about the writers which I guess we are all guilty of at one time or another. I think the writers are really doing their home work and re-visiting the past and being true to our boys. I didn’t like to admit Sam’s anger and mood swings this season, I felt he was so strongly out of character as did many of us. But once I begin my rewind summer viewing schedule I was surprised at what I had forgotten about my beloved characters. As we get older our memories are not as clear as they once were. But saying this when you do watch that episode again you capture it like it was yesterday and its surprising what you don’t forget.
Now lines I am hopeless at remembering and no where near as good as I used to be, having to check stuff out frequently on you-tube for my safety net. But Sam’s anger has often reared its ugly head, which did shock me. Was Jeremy true to form with Sam this season. Was Sam right to be angry at Dean for being a hypocrite over Benny. And once again the old tiresome Sam not looking for Dean. But this is still out there as those earlier memories I clung too alter slightly with time. What you think is a perfect character isn’t always a perfect character until we see the story through to the bitter end. Sam always did what he thought was right, with good intentions even over the demon blood and Lilith he continued that bitter struggle with or without his brother. His yearning for a normal life has always stayed true to the character too, so at least they have balanced and have stuck to a stable routine. We have grown to love both boys and see them as our flawless heroes with hearts of gold. So what is in store on this road trip now. Where do we see it go as far as its history. Both boys have suffered and had angst chucked at them a mile high, so what else can they physically endure. What can the boys not cope with, under extreme Winchester, supernatural pressures?
The boys we sense are not the same as earlier seasons, so what can the writers do to improve this balance, and make their model leads work as a cohesive unit. Sam has broken down on more than one occasion in his life, and closely together too. Where does this leave Dean in his fight to keep his brother safe and out of danger? Can the writers change direction and over us something different but keeping on a similar path? And of course keep true to our heroes.
So Bella is returning to the past, in a hope of what the future might bring us. Collecting little thoughts along the way of what stories the past has bought us. As Metatron said, its all about the stories, and Supernatural sure no’s how to tell a story. What is out there now, and what can be learned from Sam’s cry for help, as that’s what we basically saw in the finale. A broken, defeated man at deaths door. Trying desperately to redeem himself and let it all go. So tell me little ones, seeing into the future what can we expect from this show, what paths do we think they might take?
