Were they the monsters we loved to hate? At the time I wondered were they a cheap gimmick that wasn’t thought out as well as they could have been. Did they last the test of time considering they are the eldest of all monsters. God had created purgatory after all to keep his untamed beasts in. So were they ones to be scared of, and feared the most? I think on mass they were a commodity that were used to gain world denomination. But sadly lacked the mustard to pack a punch. Dick Roman considering a lavish name didn’t live up to his own expectations, even though he cloned himself. He also sent Dean and Cas into the back of beyond and gave our boys a year from hell. So was he the devil in disguise? Did he pack a mean punch when he needed too to escape them?
I think Dean knew how to handle our Dick, considering Dean thought Dick was a dick at the best of times lol! We thought masterful Dean got one over on him just to suffer terrible consequences himself. Dean so desperately wanted to bring Dick down, and vowed to end his world for killing faithful Bobby and Castiel. The boys were also cloned and went on a killing spree to make it look like them and take a number of lives in the process. The boys were once again hunted men at large. The poor Impala was placed undercover to keep the annoying pesky Levi off their trail. So the Leviathan had made their mark on our heroes. Was Dean more fulled than ever to get Roman of their backs. Had the hunt turned ten times worse by the end of the season, to find that mass production was on the cards. Even faithful Bobby tried his damnedest to get a message back to the boys about Dicks plans and what he saw on the desk that eventful day. Bobby delivered and found himself facing a reaper to get the goods back home. So were the Levi a real threat?
At first I thought they were a bit gimmicky and laughable, but the more I researched into the Levi, I did enjoy what they bought. But Dick Roman to this day whether or not it was the actor at fault. Dick lacked a certain something to be the ring leader of such a cooperate clientele. He appeared on the surface too slimy, and not as direct as some one like Crowley would have been in his position. But both Dick and Crowley together were evil sons of bitches to gain power for their own ends, even resulting in getting one over on the other. I found world domination a tad under developed and just a tad repetitive. The other aspect I enjoyed were the Levi in purgatory, the black goo effect as they came up from ground level was rather impressive and well planned.
So up to now have your own thoughts changed about the Levi, how did you feel about them at the time? Were they a crazy big bad, that felt like a big baddy. Or did you not find them as inviting. Did Dick as a leader pull you in, and create a cooperate bad guy image. Was he one for our heroes to get rid of easily. Was he really that much of a threat? Were the Leviathan as a race of creatures particularly on mass, such a threat to world domination?
