Regarding Dean was alright, that montage at the end had a nice song but was a pretty pointless inclusion. I really don't get what their goal was with that. It some what seemed like they were trying to make a point about the happiness Dean gained that was lost with his memories but if that was point then their crux should've of been the bull-riding from before he lost his memory. I kinda think it was just fluff, but then why intersperse them like that & with that song? That aside, I enjoyed it. Jensen is an incredible actor, nailing the comedy scenes & the mirror scene especially. Rowena's development was great too, guessing that mean she's getting the axe soon. Supernatural has a habit of killing off characters soon after their face turn (Henricksen way back in season 3, Metatron last season, that angel in season 9 that possessed Sam whose name escapes me), so it'll be interesting if she ends up dying. Calling it now.
The last episode however, was better. I wasn't the biggest fan of the framing device but it was the most interesting episode all season, a lot of huge stuff happened.
Supernatural's back from it's hiatus and meh, it was okay. Like Mick Davies well enough, Dean was top form with his Hotel reaction, and Sam's line "We're done" line is one of my favorite lines this season but ultimately nothing special. Next week seems to be a big episode though, hoping for good things.
Mick Davies remind me of Castiel a bit. Both were soldiers who had to follow the rules and not question it. Then both start to be human and see what's right and wrong from their side. Both were influenced by Winchester Brothers.
Unfortunately, Mick was killed off. Started to like the guy.
I forgot to comment on Supernatural. I do keep up with new episodes.
Let's see: this week's episode dealt with family. We see a loving family of hunters with witch power pretty much gone with one last survivor. Dean was like "we could have been like them" That was a chilling thing to think about. The Winchesters have gone through hell and split apart but yet, they manage to stay together with their incredible luck
Last week's episode was about Castiel and Kelly. Castiel who has suffer loss and defeat over and over. He's finally got back on the track after doubting himself and distancing himself from the Winchesters. Instead of killing Kelly and her unborn Nephilim child, Kelly has chosen him to be a protector and guide for her baby to be on the right path.
Feel bad Eileen was killed that way. Supernatural has a track of record of killing badass female characters which is ironic given the audience of Supernatural is predominantly women
While the Winchesters find out that Ketch and the British Men of Letters are killing American Hunters from Lady Bevil, Crowley loses his throne when Lucifer and one guy helped figured out how the security system work
Highlights: Lucifer making Crowley do Simon Says
Lady Bevil and Hess kept talking about Ketch's sex life. Lady Bevil shouldn't mention that in front of Sam and Dean about their mother and Ketch doing it. That was pretty insane
Next week is a 2 hour finale = which is rare to see. Is this the end of Supernatural?
I don't mind it but I hope it's a good ending for this long TV series which we had a couple of season finales that could have been the end of the TV show
There's a lot to unpack in the finale so I'll just say this, if Castiel doesn't 'return' to life that's bad writing whereas if Crowley doesn't stay dead that's bad writing. In terms of Cas' death, I actually think that was the Castiel from the alternate universe instead of our Cas but we'll see.
Another thing I'll say, is that if the next season is going to feature universe hopping like I suspect (they confirmed an animated Scooby Doo episode before the finale even aired iirc, I'm really looking forward to that episode), then I'm legitimately looking forward to the season, and it'd allow them to keep Crowley, Cas, Bobby, Rowena (who I can't say I care much for, but man was she giving such a casual death) etc. around in different variants without having to bring them back from the dead.
Universe hopping - I didn't think the season finale was a signal for something bigger for Supernatural
That's the hope for the next season anyway. With the fact that the last episode confirmed multiple universes and we got a Scooby Doo crossover confirmed, I feel pretty confident in saying next season will focusing on Universe hopping. I hope they go that route, the possibilities are pretty endless there.
Nice trivia: Jack was watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoon series. He like Ahsoka but not Anakin Skywalker. Bit of fun nod with Jack's character
While half of the episode was monster of the week: ShapeShifter, the other half dealt with Castiel who wakes up in this empty world where many creatures including angels and demons come laid and rest. It's not Purgatory. It's something new. I wish they explained a little more.
Given Castiel who has died and come back because of God, Castiel was able to fend and annoy the emptyness entity to let him go.
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.

Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.

Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.

Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.

Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.

CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys

Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.

Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
