darkemeralds: Sam & Dean leaning on the Impala on a lonely highway, text "It's a long long road from which there is no return" (long long road)

I'll have to read a lot of meta before I get all the plot-bits straightened out in my mind. Very often, other people help me understand what I liked and didn't like about a given show. But I know I liked some things right off.

Spoilers below the cut

Dean's death and demonization struck me as true to the story--pretty much inevitable--and not some daemon-ex-machina the writers pulled out of their asses. I loved that they went there, that they didn't fall back on another crossroads deal, that Dean has gone evil as the unavoidable outcome of all his many choices--good, bad, and well-intentioned. I liked that a lot.

As most of Tumblr is saying tonight, it's now 100% canon that Cas basically tore down heaven out of his love for Dean. I liked that, too.

Thank you to the showrunners for using Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home," one of my all time favorite songs, during the laying-out scene. It added a lot of tears to my already snot-faced crying. Come down off your throne and leave your body alone. Somebody must change. They'd better pay to keep that in on the digital release, is all I'm saying.

I liked the lighting and coloring in this scene:

It seems to presage Dean's imminent transformation. It's like he's already a little bit on fire. Also, Jensen. Just... *trails off*

I don't care how many times Show has had Sam and Dean breaking up, getting back together, and mourning each other: Jared and Jensen really sold it in this episode. "I'm proud of us." Me too, Dean. Me too.

I feel like Show has dug in and found one more catlike life, and I'm surprised and very happy to be looking forward to a tenth season.

If tumblr is to be believed most people had figured out where this season was going long ago. I hadn't put together the Mark of Cain used by Cain (demon) = becoming demon thing. I had thought the season would end with Dean's death and his good deeds (killing Abaddon etc) would somehow turn him into an angel. That or it would result in God's (and/or Chuck's) return to bring him back to life.

Was there some way the boys had of taking a demon and turning them human again or something? I've seen a few mentions of it but have no recollection of it.

Ugh those scenes between Dean and Sam though when Dean dies. *sobs*

Yeah, him becoming an angel would make his being Michael's true vessel make so much more sense. But, I guess it's too much to assume the show would make sense and play back to something that happened seasons ago. *sigh*

The S5 finale is my ultimate favorite. I love Chuck's voiceover and all the comments about the Impala and the importance of the car in the boys' lives... *sigh* I may go watch that again.

OH! I saw this and just had to show you

Oh yeah, I vaguely remember him.....

Although if they were going to bring ANYONE back, I'd like it to be Adam.

I wonder if tptb even remembers that he exists.

That's something at least, I guess.
