I almost feel like you can tell how this season is going to go just by how little the cast has spoken about or even acknowledges this season on their social media stuff vs previous seasons. I think the one most hyped is Malarkey... The others seem more "Welp. It's here." In previous seasons we had stuff to speculate on just by BTS selfies on their instagram accts. Not this time. A bit telling, no?

Yeah, seems everyone is pretty much done with it. Especially Paul and Ian, their performances in the episode felt so hollow at a few points. (Also that one scene where Damon says “Brother” before or after like every sentence and I was like *twitch twitch* lol)

Also apparently they’re both producers this year. Wonder what that means re: their involvement in the creative choices?


If you do not have cable or can’t access a TV during the airing of tonight’s Supernatural episode, 

  • The episode should be there in as little as 8 hours after air time.
  • The episode you want to watch is titled “First Born" 9.11
  • For those doing the CW site thing, just leave your laptop streaming it for the entire duration of the episode. 
  • Watch? Lol, you don’t even have to watch!
    Simply leave your TV set to the CW from 9 pm to 10 PM EST, and you’ve done your part! 
    "But dude what time is 9pm Eastern where I’m at?”

Last but not least, we’d like to thank you for supporting our family through this most comical event, and let you know that you have our infinite gratitude for living up to the challenge. Should any of you need support in the future, I am sure many of our clan would be grateful enough to return the favor. Let’s show the world not just what Supernatural fans are capable of, but what all fandoms are made of:

pure raw power! 


It was easy to get me to do this TV show. All the roles I’ve ever gotten, you’ve seen the roles I’ve gotten. They’ve been wonderful but so many of them have been downtrodden. They’ve been women who are pretty much asexual, they haven’t been realized, they have careers but no names. And all of a sudden I was given this opportunity to play someone sexy, mysterious, someone complicated. And it was a chance to use my craft. It was a chance to transform. It was a chance to surprise myself and the public. And I took it. - Viola Davis

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that fandom will advocate the romantic sub-plot between two main characters, unless one character is portrayed by an actor who is a person of colour. This phenomenon within white fandom is called ‘why can’t they remain as friends, I feel a certain discomfort with a potential relationship between *insert ship*, for which the strength of this WOC will be threatened by any romantic subtext because every woman of colour is an island”. This phenomena or “discomfort” is commonly known as racism. 

I love those OTPs where half or both of them are just constantly reciting wedding vows to each other and the writers like to pretend that they’re 100% platonic.

To the people saying that we should stop complaining about Sleepy Hollow killing off Abbie because Nicole Beharie “wanted to leave”:

Nicole Beharie wanted to leave because the people behind the scenes treated her like crap. For god’s sake, the official twitter for Sleepy Hollow didn’t even follow Nicole Beharie’s account. They forgot to invite her to the recording of the audio commentary for the show she is supposed to be the co-lead on. No wonder she wanted to leave! Plus, they promised her a lead role in a network television show, one part of a dual-protagonist team, and then sidelined her. Constantly. For their male lead and his stories and relationships.

All this in spite of the fact that Abbie Mills and her partnership with Ichabod Crane was the reason why people were watching. Abbie was the audience connection, the “normal person” tossed into the supernatural weirdness of the plot. People weren’t connecting with Ichabod Crane’s fish-out-of-water story, or his time-spanning Purgatory marriage, or his demon son – you can’t relate to Ichabod Crane, not really, but you could relate to Abbie Mills.

And the show ignored all of this, ignored the wonderful character and the gifted actor that had fallen into their weirdo supernatural show, for absolutely no reason besides shortsightedness and an unwillingness to bend to the natural progression of the story.

But the fact that they killed Abbie off – didn’t trap her in Purgatory or Pandora’s Box but absolutely, with great finality, said “Abbie Mills is dead” – in a sci-fi/fantasy show like Sleepy Hollow? That’s the most ridiculous part of this. They closed the loopholes that this genre takes advantage of constantly, and they did that because they flat-out did not care about Abbie Mills.

So yeah, Nicole Beharie wanted to leave. Of course she did. Why would she stick around a job where she was clearly undervalued, when she could go on to do so much more?
