Supernatural Dissapointment...

Report
Now I've been a fan of Supernatural for many years now, and I have enjoyed all seasons up until now. Many people might disagree with me and send abusive messages towards me but I found season 7 really bad. With all the other seasons there was somehow a plot line. Like Season 1-- Sam and Dean were looking for their father. Season 2-- Trying to stop yellow eyes. Season 3-- Break Dean out of his demon deal. Season 4-- Try to stop Lilith from breaking the 66 seals. Season 5-- To stop the apocolpse. Season 6-- Get Sams soul back and stop cas and crowley opening pergatory. Season 7-- ?? i have no idea what the story line is. At first it was helping sam with his hell memories then it was to stop the levitins then bobby dies. Like i dont know what the hells going on anymore!!! So i say this... I think this season of supernatural was quite bad had hope next seasons much better!!

According to the ratings listing, The Secret Circle drew a greater overall audience from the 18-49 group. However, The Secret Circle was cancelled. The Secret Circle ranked at 139 and Supernatural was lower. Even this is getting much to political. Who can you believe?

@nataylor1947 TSC is a new show while SPN is in its 7th season going on 8, so there isn't much to compare concerning ratings. I believe TSC got the best lead-in on the CW and it got the promotion SPN never had. When Dawn was in charge, Jared and Jensen were never invited to those upfronts. Actually it was political, but now it is all about profit...

I agree that Supernatural is disjointed this season. They get the cranky guy to replace Bobby, then quickly kill him off. If you were a new viewer you would not have a clue to whats happening.

I want to bite off my fingers for typing this but Season 7...... floundered. The creators had a plan for 1-5 and it was seamless and season 6 kept us interested by giving the Angel's more screen time. Then came 7, there were a few crackers (Meet The New Boss & Time After Time) but even the build up of Castiel returning couldn't put the spark back into it. SO far all I've heard about Season 8 is the release date and a snippet about Sam's love life, oh and Jensen directing again. I'll watch it for that if nothing else. You never know, they've been handed a lifeline they may just use it to stay afloat. Or.....

I will agree that season 7 had more low points than up. I miss the days of the apocalyptic theme where they retitled with the idea if there was a god and all the build up towards swan song. I guess nothing could have lived up to that build up. With that said, I think the way season 7 ended they left the door wide open for season 8 to be really good if they follow through with expanding the show to purgatory. It would be a big let down if they again do what they did after season 4 when season 5 picked up 6 months later instead of at least showing the angels rescue him from hell, and then they did it again when they started season 6 1 year later, and they didn't go into detail as to what had happened with Sam in hell until almost the last episode.

I know I probably see things differently than most and I hope this is taken as my humble opinion but this is how I saw Season 7. By the way I loved Season 7, as I’ve loved Seasons 1 – 6. What can I say I love this show! Dean – at the end of Season 6 Dean loses his brother ‘again’ when Cas breaks Sam’s wall then Cas goes all ‘god’ on him and it’s a double betrayal in Dean’s eyes: Cas betrayed him twice, the ultimate betrayal was ‘breaking’ Sam’s wall after all it took for Dean to get Sam’s soul back especially with learning that it was Cas who resurrected Sam to begin with and in his arrogance did so without checking to be sure Sam was whole and intact. Many times in Season 6 especially Dean is heard to call Cas a child. Cas is now apparently mentally a child after ‘finally’ fixing Sam and ending up in the psyche ward until he and Dean ended up in purgatory after helping to send the leviathans back there. The second way that Cas betrayed Dean was in his friendship. Dean lost not only Sam’s wall and possibly Sam himself (he wasn’t sure at the time) but the best and only friend other than Bobby and Sam that he ever had when Cas teamed up with Crowley and brought purgatory into our world and then couldn’t get them all back and left the leviathan here to wreak havoc and take the next ‘loss’ Dean experienced. I see Season 6 into Season 7; as one long continuation of the pain started at Sam’s soulless self and Death’s Wall, and Cas’ betrayal and breaking the wall to Sam’s mental break to Bobby’s death to where we ended up in purgatory at the end of Season 7. Dean’s whole life has been a life of pain and angst and that is one half of what makes Supernatural the show we love. Even before we met Dean we learned as the years progressed that Dean’s whole life was filled with pain. Let’s take a look back before I move to how Sam’s pain filled years have made Sam the other half of why Supernatural is the show so many love for so many reasons. We met Dean as he picks up his younger brother at Stanford University and as the years unfold we see not only why Sam was at Stanford but why Dean left him there and what made him come for him; Dean lost his father. Long before John Winchester made that deal with Yellow Eyes Dean’s loss of his dad was clearly seen and felt; at least to this faithful fan. So not being able to find their dad Dean turns to the only other he can’t bear to lose to help him find their father and so the quest begins for the reunited 2 brothers and for us the fans as we meet these two brothers. As the years roll forward we see ‘all’ the ones Dean has lost so it was no wonder that we heard him declare to Sammy with Bobby fighting for his life and running from his reaper not a few feet away that they had lost enough. In Season 2 Dean loses his dad for real after finally finding him and before he died dad left Dean with a scary future that he might have to kill Sam but Dean being the big brother he is vows to save his brother at all costs. The end of Season 2 we see Dean’s pain as Sammy dies in his arms causing Dean to make a deal to get him back. Then in Season 3 it’s a race against time and fate and the ‘deal’ for Dean as he faces hell and also faces the pain of knowing Sammy will be left alone without him. In Season 4 we see Dean resurrected and a new friendship is slowing born for Dean with Cas as the Angel of the Lord that brought him back. But Dean’s pain is still there if not more so at finding Sammy lost in a world of darkness and blood drinking and demon killing on a quest of his own of revenge for the one that held Dean’s deal; Lilith. Season 4 ends with the killing of Lilith and the breaking of the final seal and added pain for Dean as Cas tells the brothers that Dean’s break in hell was the first seal and that the End of the World was at hand and that angels were fighting demons to stop the seals from breaking to no avail as we learned and sadly so did Sam and Dean. Season 5 was painful for Dean because of all he was learning about Sam yes but also about the fact that not only was his mother Mary a Hunter but she too made a deal which started Sammy on his path (more about that later) and then the season ends with Dean’s reluctant acceptance of Sam’s choice to stop Lucifer and Dean’s pain at watching his brother fall in the cage and to Dean at the time the cost was too high because he stopped the world from ending and at what a price, the death of his brother and this time no deal would bring his brother back. Season 6 shows a tortured and still in pain Dean trying to deal with life without Sam and life with Lisa and Ben (I know a lot of folks didn’t like this pairing) and then just when Dean thought life would be alright again with Sam alive he knows things are not right and finds that Sam was returned soulless and as the season (year) moves forward Dean learns his best friend Cas is not only behind soulless Sam but made a ‘deal’ with Crowley to find and open purgatory in an attempt to control Heaven. Dean’s pain at soulless Sammy mounts as he makes a deal with the Angel of Death to put his soul back with the condition of the wall that will keep Sam from going insane from memories of the cage but betrayal again strikes for Dean in the pain of watching Cas break Sam’s wall then take the souls of purgatory into himself for god like ability to control Heaven then as we go from Season 6 to Season 7 Cas breaks and what he couldn’t put back into purgatory, the worst of the worst in the leviathans, are now lose in the world and Dean’s pain and angst continues as he must now find them, kill them, and somehow put them back; all the while watching Sammy’s living hell as he struggles with the memories of hell and finally breaks himself. It’s no wonder that Season 7 is full of pain and angst for Dean as he says more than once that if the world wants to destroy itself why is he killing himself to save it. Not a quote but the meaning behind it I believe and then to lose Bobby, not once but twice. Dean has had a lot of pain and angst in his life and now he’s stuck in purgatory with an mentally defective angel who has disappeared on him, again. We also get the feeling from the limited spoilers that when he gets out of purgatory Sam has moved on an away from the only life Dean has ever really known. The pain and the angst continue for Dean I think in Season 8. Long explanation I know but to me Supernatural is about the pain and angst that not only Dean but Sam go through day in and day out, year in and year out and that is what makes the show for me. Do I need to see Dean’s purgatory time? That would be nice but I don’t need to see flash backs his face, his eyes, his words and his behavior (like his alcohol use) will tell me and more importantly I’ve been seeing his earthly purgatory for 7 years now. I know the pain and angst Dean’s been in and is still in and Season 8 I already know will be good because not only will the brothers will be back top side and together but unfortunately for Dean his pain and angst will continue so his earthly purgatory will continue. I just hope for more than 8 Seasons. Sam’s journey is long too over 7 years and full of pain and angst and earthly purgatory but I will share my thoughts on the second half of what makes this show great at a later time; if anyone is interested. Thanks for reading.

Part 2 - Sam Sam – at the end of Season 7 Sam was alone – again as he realized his brother had disappeared. Unlike the end of Season 3 he wasn’t sure where Dean had gone so I do think we will see the pain and angst that Sam experienced when Dean went to purgatory with Cas. Sam too is still grieving Bobby and now on top of that he’s grieving his brother, again, and though he may suspect they ended Season 7 without Sam knowing for certain what happened to his brother. He had Crowley’s mockery but nothing more. I am anxious to see if Sam really walked away from the life from day one or if he tried to find Dean or tried to get him out. I am sure he did though it may not be apparent until later in the season. Sam has also had 7 years of pain and angst and we’ve seen glimpses of his childhood and the reasons he hates Halloween and left his father and brother for Stanford. Sam has also been losing folks his whole life. From the mother he never knew, Dean had the memories of a 4 year old, to the father he never saw eye to eye with in almost everything but especially hunting, to watching his brother die, and go to hell, from a deal to keep him alive and then going on a demon killing spree and revenge path to kill the demon holding Dean’s contract. Sam’s lost the girl he was to marry, Jessica, to the same thing, Yellow Eyes and Brady, that killed the mother he never knew on the night of the six month after his birth. He’s lived with what he believes is the curse of Yellow Eyes, his psychic abilities, which I think may resurface again one day, the drinking demon blood, the starting of the apocalypse by killing Lilith and freeing Lucifer, putting Lucifer back in the cage, living with no soul and the painful restoration of his soul after Cas broke the wall, then his mental break down from the memories of the cage and the torture of Lucifer to losing Bobby, not once but twice (remember it was Sam who tried contacting him so IMHO it was Sam who was trying to find him to perhaps try to bring him back or just to talk to him), to watching Dean disappear on him and Crowley’s mocking words before stealing the latest Prophet and demon vanishing himself. Sam’s got a world of hurt too and his journey has led him down some very painful and traumatic roads. One that springs to mind is seeing his mother, as a young bride, and talking to his father, as a young man not much older than himself, and learning that both Sam and John had a difficult time dealing with their dads. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree so to speak. Yellow Eyes tried to make Sam his puppet and Lucifer tried to do that as well. Sam was stronger and has come a long way since his blood drinking days but his pain is still there and his angst I think will continue into Season 8. Not quite the lengthy explanation this time but I could have gone on and on. But both Sam and Dean live with pain and angst and I guess what I’m trying in an extended version to share is that although I love the demon hunting, ghost and monster killing and even the dealing with mischievous and downright rebellious angels this is the Sam and Dean Winchester story and seeing what they did in hell, the cage and purgatory is great but seeing them deal with their real world afterward is what I like to see. They work best together and with the Impala and when they are talking but have y’all noticed that they spend less and less time talking out their angst and more and more holding it in and in Dean’s case drinking it in. That is what makes this show the best show on TV at least for me. I like other shows like Once Upon a Time but Supernatural will always be #1 for me so I say bring on Season 8; how long til Oct now? I also say I want more Seasons after 8. Thanks for reading.
