There, there, Aanya! That's one hell of an analysis. I haven't read anything from you before. I read this analysis and realized that my friend here has to be one helluva writer. I don't promise on reading your AR and ArHi fan fictions but if you continue writing essays on Supernatural episodes like such, you keep getting back essays from me accordingly.
The episode was cryptic and the plot has potential, like it always does. The supernatural quotient of of the show is always labyrinth-like and I cannot possibly doubt the magnitude of twists and turns we're gonna be getting. However, it's emotion that they failed to hit me with in the first episode.
I mean, Supernatural has been super emotion to me in its entirety. I miss the original Supernatural when I watch this episode, and I miss it terribly. For one, it was an integrated sort of boulevard of human behavior and emotion. Dean and Sam appealed to me with that edge of a specific theme they had for every episode. Now it's episodic and still feels like a runny piece of continuous confusion. And I am not judging Sam for not looking for Dean but I would have liked it better if he hadn't considered Dean to be straight dead. Dean happened to tug at me but only halfway so, mainly because I saw these streaks of Bobby Singer in Dean Winchester today. He's more a hunter now than he ever was before. And that's got me hoping that I will not have to be so critical on the show's arse after watching the next few episodes. I mean, I love Supernatural, period. It's just that I think that I will take time to decode this season.
I thought that Sam is the gentler one at first. With time, we realized that Sam can be course when he likes and it never hit me hard before. I did not like at all how he did not respond to Kevin's messages. Kevin to me seemed just as appealing as a potential boss hunter as he did to you, by the way. Benny too, we got mutual thoughts there as well. I admire Sam Winchester, though. So I obviously know that I will shut up about once his story starts to unfold, with respect to Amelia and the previous one year.
J2 are magnificent. They are just getting better with time. I doubt anybody can pull off you-are-back-from-the-dead better than they can. But I still found their reunion bland because I did not start crying. I blame that on the story, which I am sure is developing. Supernatural simply doesn't let you down. (:
PS. Bobby Singer and Castiel are very, very missed.
PPS. An eloquent inauguration to this place, indeed.
