I don't know, I don't know....

Having major angst about whether or not to watch the season finale until like maybe...October. Can anyone advise me?

Vague spoilers, if at all possible, although I think I've already spoiled myself aplenty!

Also, I've started a new resurrected!John story, so there is that.


I haven't watched last week's either. I've peeked into a few posts. The thing is that I want to stay in love with show, I want to spend my summer writing stories...Supernatural stories. I don't want to be disappointed, and I don't want to be in a dark funk about it either.

To anyone who has watched, is there anything about the finale that demands to be watched on this side of the hiatus? I'm choosing to put enormous faith in Jeremy Carver who I am confident (okay hand-wringingly hopeful) will fix all.

To watch or not to watch....somebody help me. :)

I've started a resurrected John story, where John and Dean break into that mental hospital and haul broken!Sammy out themselves. It's kind of my happy place right now. :)

IDK what to tell you...it leaves the boys in a cliffhanger that makes me look forward to how they get out of it.

That's actually nice to know. The looking forward part and all! :)

Glad you're still watching, btw! Are you writing at all? I haven't read much lately at all.

I'm 5 episodes behind so I haven't seen it either. I'm nervous. :|

Wow, 5 behind - that's more than me! I think I might be best off ignoring it for a while and just writing instead.

I think it sets up something that could be kind of awesome, but the episode itself was emotionally mostly pretty sterile. Not distressing, and it was overall, not just between Sam and Dean, but there isn't much in the way of feeling for an Spn finale.

Oh, actually this is good to know. Kind of flat then. I'm really hoping that it is the changing of the guard that has caused this creative malaise for the last several episodes.

what would make you disappointed or put you in a funk? Because there's angst coming for both brothers, danger for both, and even a possibility for something I consider fantastic, Sam-wise. There's also a possibility for something very unwelcome for SamandDean fans, but at this point, without future knowledge, it's hard to say if that will be a problem. I think I know something you'd hate very much and I'd like to reassure you it hasn't happened, but I can't be sure you'd appreciate even a vague warning.

Can I just say that I ♥ you! It's nice to know it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

I am such a wimp. I am not really sure how I've managed to survive this show up until now, but I do still love Sam and Dean so and want to stay that way.

I've JUST watched it, so I'm kind of all over the place. But I will tell you this, the cliffhanger is pretty epic. I'm definitely excited for next season. Cas and Dean fans (which, I am not into that ship) will have something to drool over particularly. I am pretty terrified, though. I don't know how I'll be able to wait. If I was strong enough - I wish I'd be able to put off watching the finale till like the week before season 8 starts - but I'm not that strong. And honestly, even though it's going to be torture - my advice would be to watch it. Because the premier of 8 will be that much sweeter if you've waited so long for it. Proceed responsibly.

Your response just made me smile! I am feeling more reassured. I have to admit that I'm a Sam&Dean girl all the way, which is where a lot of my angst has been coming from. But I can definitely be happy for those who have been waiting their turn. :)

I thought it was pretty fantastic. I laughed, I cried, I cheered, and I yelled at my TV repeatedly (as cliche as that sounds, it's all true). The cliffhanger is insane and really sets up the potential for something (or many somethings) awesome. Very, very excited to see where this goes come October.

Wow, I love all of you. Already feeling better! I was just so put out earlier in the season and haven't quite recovered. But this is my *heart* show and I want it to stay that way. :)

All I can say is that I really, really enjoyed it. I am about to get stuck into my review but yeah....I was left satisfied. :)))

Really????? Oh, you just made me feel so much better, and I will watch both episodes tomorrow when I have to myself. ♥

(and yes, it's more than a little ridiculous how slightly over-invested I am, but I figure we're all still in this together!)

I liked it, sweetie! It's a heck of a setup for next season , I think. :)

Let's just say during the whole summer is going to be a war between SamnDean fans and Dean/Castiel fans. Because the finale has wonderful potential of going either way. I'm firmly rooting for SamnDean of course.

Also, I'm pretty sure this finale also mean there MUST be a hug somewhere in Season 8!!

Definitely! A great big, Sam hugs the stuffing out of Dean, hug. :)

The finale by itself is unremarkable, but the setup at the end is unexpected and very exciting. Do watch! I think it has GREAT fanfic potential. :)

where John and Dean break into that mental hospital and haul broken!Sammy out themselves

Oooooh. \o/ Do share that happy place soon!

This is really, really good to know! I have really felt the writing has been lackluster for the last third of the season - with the exception of the glorious Charlie ep - don't remember the title!

I think bringing in Jeremy Carver will be a good thing for the show and I'm just so happy to get a new season.

The goal is to actually write today, so who knows...stranger things have happened! :)

Squeeee! about the promise of new fic!

I definitely recommend watching the rest of season 6. I did feel as though there wasn't the focus on the brothers' relationship with each other that we've had in other seasons - so for me it wasn't as emotionally intense as past years. But there was nothing that made me upset, and SO MUCH to look forward to next season. It sounds like you've decided to watch it, so I hope you do and join us in speculating where Jeremy Carver will take season 8!

Lol, because I haven't been reading SPN fanfic, I kind of assume that nobody is. It's good to know there are still readers!

And that is very, very good to know because you and I are so in sync when it comes to this show. I'm sure that's why I've been feeling meh. Because for me, it's all about Sam&Dean, all the time, and I know I am greedy that way. It think the fact they haven't been mad at each other has reduced that necessary aspect of our show. Be careful what you wish for and all that.

So glad we have S8 though and so glad Jeremy Carver will be on board!

Hey there
I am in the UK so I can't wait for season 7 to start over here! I want it back now. They always wait for eternity for it to come here! Is so sad right now!

TTYAL,

Re: Hey there
You are so patient! I could never wait that long. I adore the first half of season 7, so you know. :)

Honestly, of the 4 Sam girls that I chat with on a regular basis (phx, Geminigrl11 and Trasan) two of them didn't bother to watch. Phx and I were underwhelmed and rather disappointed. I hope that Jeremy can fix the show, but truthfully, I wish it would have just ended at season 5. I'm happy the boys and the crew are still working but there have been some pretty shotty storylines. I like that they tried to build up the relationship between the boys again but another season with Cas may just turn me off for good.

That said, I am apparently a masochist and will watch for now... sigh. I hope some good fic comes of it, but I feel it will be more Dean-centric, as it has been of late, so not too much for us poor Sam girls. :(

Stepping from downer soap box.

:D

Aw, sorry you've been so disappointed. In general, I've been happy with 6-7. LOVED the first half of season 7 in fact, Sam's wall and all. I am most happy when the boys are bottle clinking and enjoying each other, which is why I'm happy they didn't end at season 5.

(and also, then Sam would have been in Hell which would be a harsh series finale!)

But yeah, the last third of this season has been lackluster for me. And yet, I have hope, which may be unwarranted, but I believe the show has some stories left to tell.

♥ for you. Glad you're still around!

Glad you're writing a new story!

I enjoyed the last episode; the second-to-last not as much. There are some dangling plot-points that I had to decide not to worry about, but I'm looking forward to next season and anything anyone writes over the hiatus starting at the cliffhanger especially. I guess whether you should watch them or not depends on whether you generally find yourself pretty happy after watching an episode even when it's imperfect. If yes, then go for it! :)
