Okay so I am back after being poorly and typing to you on my bed from my laptop. A very bad bout of the winter vomiting bug. I have been disturbed lately by the Sam hate that appears to be spreading since the mini hellatus break. Many are very depressed over the outcome of Sam’s words to Dean. But since coming back to the forum after three days away, I found it was even more depressing than I had feared. I still feel depressed as many report that they feel the relationship between the brothers now doesn’t exist and hasn’t really since season 4. But Sam’s words put the nail in the coffin! So how do you guys really feel. Even though I think I may have mastered it with my early assumptions. Is the relationship broken like a glass once its broken it can’t be fixed as it will never be the same as what it once was. Am I digging myself into a corner here for no reason, as it is really depressing me as I don’t want to believe it. Are these boys so far gone down the road that it can’t ever be that good again? Do the writers really enjoy hurting this relationship to its very core, its heart, its foundation … Both of them have been really hurt in this ordeal and both are suffering but how far are they prepared to go?
Are the writers royally screwing the brothers, and using their angst as plot devices? Do we sense this to be true? Yes we know the story telling is heading some where. But this show was primarily about two brothers who love each other, unconditionally and new what the other was thinking, has this road trip all been for nothing. Do the lives they save mean nothing any more? Laying it on the line, did Sam really mean it, or was he just lashing out? We ask ourselves time and time again, have the writers gone too far. Is it just too much? Or are you okay with it all in the backs of your minds that you’ve thought more about it, and its full steam ahead ….
I hate it when the fandom appears so divided, and that the story line has tended to make Sam look the underdog. Dean has done wrong, but did the writers really need to get Sam to kick Dean where it really hurt. Where’s the logic, what’s behind it all? Some think including me its relating to Cain’s mark, which if it is I will be happy once again as its a supernatural influence, but if the season comes to an end without a pin point I will think WTF were they playing at.
I would love to hear your views now we’ve all had a chance to calm down and rationalize it a bit more. Is your mind any clearer do share ….
