Quick reaction to season 8 premiere ...

Popping in just for a quickie, here.

I really liked this episode. While Sam's behavior concerns me, I am absolutely confident that we still have a LOT to learn about what actually happened to him after the moment season 7 ended, and when we learn the whole, we'll realize that what was going on wasn't remotely a man being callous, selfish, or shallow. I will wait to see what happens.

I'll go into a lot more detail later, when I manage my episode write-up, but here's one quick piece for thought.

Collapse )

I loved war vet Dean, jumping out of his skin from the constant overstimulation of his combat reflexes by perfectly ordinary sounds and sights that have been made alien to him after a year in constant combat. I'm intrigued by Benny and want to see how his connection with Dean developed and led to their escape from Purgatory. And I'm dying to learn the fate of Castiel and to see where the whole quest for the Word goes.

Bring it, season 8!
