Two pieces of new caught my eye on IMDb today. The first being the figure in the premier whom we all thought was so mysterious and something other worldly or supernatural. Jim Michael’s has revealed on Twitter today that it was wait for it, drum roll ‘DON’ oh well, thanks writers for yet another suspicion and poor plot reveal out of the way. Its taken what a whole season and a bit to reveal.
Mysterious Figure watching Sam in 8×01-Mystery SOLVED.
The other bit of new is,
Lets face it–Sam simply did NOT look for Dean
As JM reaffirms it was Amelia’s husband who was looking from outside at Sam in 8.01. It was no grand conspiracy that made Sam not look for Dean–Carver has said the same in the past.
I take it as the show has said and played it–Sam was devastated, burned out and without a clue…so he gave up. So get over it–Sam is human, he blew it and now even Dean is largely past it.
That said the show should have portrayed Sam’s devastation better and more explicitly–But that’s it…Sam is flawed like everyone else and that is what he did(or didn’t do).
So folks, I am not going to loose any more sleep over this, even though it deep down has really upset my emotions and how lazy writing it was. As we no he would have looked. After all our conversations, nothing usual has come from it. Was I surprised to learn that it was DON’ outside Sam’s not really as we had suspicions that it could have been him all along. So what do you think guys, about Sam and Don. Is it disappointing that our show has damaged a character or does this add more flaws to his character. Does this mature Sam, and what does this mean for Sam now, that he is uncaring, couldn’t care less and is rather selfish to boot. I hate to think this of him, but this but is this what were meant to see. Have there been bad plot holes during season 8, will this go down in history as one of those controversial grey area’s that fans will talk for ever about. Can I move on, yes finally its not ideal but have that confirmation which allows your brain to process it. I hope within the next two years they might redeem Sam, and help him through this, and show us he is reformed. And come to a conclusion about his actions. He apologized to Kevin, but Dean’s apology is brushed aside.
What do you all think, I no we have talked at length, but have you found it poor writing, or perfectly acceptable that they can change course. Bella would love to no…. Was it late in revealing this information or part of the course. Do we expect anything to change very much. Was Samelia really all worth the heartache it bought. Was it the best thing that Carver could have thought of since he was singing its praises. Please writers no more love interests for season 9. I could not bear another Amelia. So Sam, what are we to learn from this any further input before this story is finally put to bed.
