Torn and Frayed, Jenny Klein’s first solo scrip for the show, not only brings the brothers’ ongoing conflict to a (temporary and uneasy) conclusion, but also seems to mark the end of Sam’s storyline with Amelia, at least for the time being. Additionally, the episode advances the mytharc by looking into Crowley and Naomi’s activities, and as was to be expected, they are up to no good. Overall, the episode suffers from the same problems as most other episodes this season, so I do not feel particularly enthusiastic about it, and I guess my review reflects that lack of enthusiasm. Sorry.

I’m just tired of all the fighting. )

So, here’s the thing, folks: Over the course of the past ten episodes, watching (and reviewing) Supernatural has become somewhat of a chore, and I often find myself putting it off, because I don’t want to spend my weekend miserable and in rant-mode. At the moment, I hardly recognise the characters I loved so unconditionally these past seven years, and if S8 does not improve quickly, I may have to let the show go, if only to preserve my love for Sam and Dean before this season is able to annihilate it. So, I will see how it goes the next couple of episodes, but it is possible that, at some point, I will not continue to review this season. Let’s hope it doesn’t get that far, but I thought you should know, just in case my reviews suddenly stop coming.
