Messy Pants

So I've been purposefully not thinking about SPN in an attempt to not paint a "this should happen" picture in my head so I don't have lofty expectations and get my hopes up in the likely chance--based on my tenuous, hot-and-cold relationship with this entire season--that I'll be massively disappointed and then grouchy and ranty when the credits roll at end of 8x23.  But the spoilers that have been trickling out have me literally messing my pants and thinking, "IS THIS FOR REAL?!" (the spoilers, not the messy pants).  I don't know if I should start fast clapping and screaming like a 10-year old at Harry Potter Land or if I should just stop. reading. spoilers. now. so I don't paint all sorts of elaborate "this should happen" pictures in my head only to be disappointed in the end.  Grawhahhh.  Why does it feel like SPN is the teenager I don't have: I simultaneously want and don't want to know what they're doing both for fear of what I'll find out and will and won't happen.  Show, you make me more insane than I already am.  *shakes fists*  BTW, I'm so glad you're coming back for S9, so you can prove to me you are responsible and trustworthy enough to have car privileges again.  *hugs and kisses*

Why does my mood theme not have an option for "insane"?!  Is that not a relevant state of mind?

Everything you said.

The writers have shown such a disrespect for past canon, such a lack of concern for continuity and consistent characterisation this season that I have doubts that S9 will be any better. :(

If a certain writing team keeps showing up next season as they did this season (or with for frequency) I will not be enthused. Them writing the occasional MotW episode in the past could be pretty much ignored, but this season trusting them with cornerstone episodes was a disaster literally. Insulting really. I started writing a ranty post about how there are very few writers (just Singer now) who have been with SPN since the start and how that's now affecting continuity/characterization and how that and such a long-running show with such a complex canon rules are making Show ball itself up in knots and trip over itself. If we don't have the writers, we don't have a Show. I feel that the effects of Carver's hiatus from SPN is starting to show and add to that the sad fact that he's not got time to actually write episodes being the showrunner. Let's clone Edlund, strap him to a computer, and force him to write the rest of the season's episodes.
