"ompletely depending on whether my hunch is right and they really are winding down the narrative" don't we already already know that that's not the case? They said the show isn't ending and many years left. Or is this refering to something else can you "wind down the narrative" without ending the show?
Hello lovely Nonny!
Okay, so, when it comes to what they’re saying I think they know and we know that anything can happen. And we know that they know that we know that we should take whatever they say with fistfuls of salt. And they know that we know… oh, my God, why did I start doing that? That’s just confusing.
They say they want to keep going for years? I say awesome!
I say I am in it for the long haul. No matter fucking what I will stand by my faith in the fact that these writers know what they’re doing. So they want to drag this sonofabitch out until doom’s day? FUCK. YES. Bring-it-on.
But that said, it’s also my absolute faith in them knowing what they’re doing that sort of underlines my belief that they’ve built this peak they’re breaching with the S12 finale and that they’ve built it for a reason.
12x22 and 12x23 provided a huge turning point for the narrative.
Each of our three main characters - and Dean may be our protagonist, but the narrative still circles three main characters - are standing on thresholds here:
- The brodependency has lapsed because Dean put his faith in Sam’s individual abilities to lead.
- Sam has stepped out of Dean’s shadow, out of the role of “follower” and into the role of Leader.
- Cas is… well, very dead. But is poised for rebirth, for transformation.
And why is this important?? WHAT THE FUCK DOES THIS MATTER?
Happy you ask. (you asked) (shut up)
The narrative up until 12x22 has been focused on what?
Well, mostly the focal point has been the brodependency, and with good reason, right? The show is about the brothers Winchester.
But let us never forget this —> Dean’s character growth is linked - without question - to his feelings for Cas.
