So I love Supernatural, BUT...
Did anyone else feel uncomfortable watching the scene with Metatron and Cas following the waitress/nephilim? (Did I spell that right, I don’t even know?)
Like, did anyone else see this as a couple of creepsters following a woman while she’s alone, in the dark? I mean, I was just watching this and thinking, “Okay, w2g Cas and Meta, you just became that scary feeling every woman gets when she has to walk by herself.”
And I was thinking that, and wondering why this was the route the writers chose when BAM. The creepsters following the woman suddenly become the victims.
I don’t see a strong woman standing up for herself in this scene because they straight up demonized her. They even used the same special effect/animation for the eyes (changed it from black to silver, but still) and I nearly lost it at my TV.
SPN writers, this is a legitimate fear women face every damn day. We shouldn’t have to, but fuck if we don’t, and I just really hate this scene. This shouldn’t have changed to Cas and Metatron suddenly defending themselves from a monster. They are the monsters in this moment.
Reading too much into this? Maybe. Did I legitimately feel this way while watching? Yes. I don’t know why this scene of all the scenes available in this show hit he like this, but it did. I’m a little disappoint, writers.
Blah! I don’t even know, but I needed to get this out so I can go on loving this addictive, feels-inducing, (occasionally problematic) show. You guys get it, right?
