To all the writers of the show…
Forever disgusted that they used burning angel wings as the title card, leading the audience on to think this would totally be the season of angels, and then they completely dropped the ball on both the angel and Cas arcs, wasting a whole episode on bestiality jokes while most of the interesting angel shit goes happens offscreen.
They just fucking walked away from the angel story, Cas was human for like five minutes, nothing but bad things happen to him, he learns nothing nice about being human, completely separated from the Winchesters, can’t even get his own grace back (and the showrunner doesn’t even think that’s an issue, any old grace will do).
Forever disgusted that they used Misha’s status as regular to keep us all excitedly watching. It turns out Cas is in as many or LESS episodes than when he was a guest star.
And how did we find out?
A writing student said one of the writers, Buckner (the lovely one who gave us 9x03 and 9x09), said in front of a whole classroom Misha was signed for 11 episodes. Great PR, SPN. Great PR.
Why am I not surprised. It seems to me that quite a few of the writers and producers would like to see Cas go, and they can’t because they’d lose so many viewers on that. Someone made a chart/sheet/anything to see if there are writers/producers who consistently leave Cas out? (Glass?)
If I were Misha, I’d have walked out half a season ago instead of going to waste in a show that doesn’t seem to want him or his character in there.
You know, it’s the last paragraph that hurt the most. If only they had more respect for Misha and his fans…
Please, when did anyone have respect for Misha?
Ever since he came there, people and crew have wanted to cast him out. If he didn’t have such a strong fanbase, and those things we did last year to keep him, nothing would have happened. And you know Singer has been sweating on his neck all that damn time.
I love Jensen and Jared with everything I have, and some of the writers, God bless their heart, but sometimes, I wish they’d just try more on the situation with Mish.
But you know what is the thing that fucking bugs me to no end? It is the fact that all this bullshit happened when Edlund left. He was a strong voice on the final decisions (as a partial director, writer and consulting producer), that he was able to back up the importance of Castiel against the assholes who wished him dead. he did so for 4 seasons.
Everything, and I mean everything, from Jenny Klein’s episode to the god-awful 9x03, was a product of Edlund’s departure.
Because the show, without him, is falling apart.
Everything about this post hurt! I mean they have the basis for an amazing and interesting storyline but they don’t seize it! They know what we want to see and they know how passionate the fans are, so why don’t they use it? If they are out of ideas there are a lot of intelligent fans out there who might help. I hate how they treat Misha. I mean by now he is already part of the whole team and should be treated like this. Please dear producers and directors, do something interesting with your potential and for fuck’s sake keep Castiel!
I’m a huge Supernatural fan, but if the writers/producers don’t get their act together and quit with the never-ending character assassinations, I don’t know how much longer I’m going to last. I love Sam, I love Dean, and I love Cas. But this season they’ve turned Sam into a real asshole, they’ve cast Dean as really skeevy in some of these episodes and they’ve completely neglected Cas when they weren’t wasting time with empty hookups. Look, I’m gonna be completely honest here—a lot of what kept me going through s7 was the hope that Cas would come back, and what kept me going through s8 was Dean & Cas’s relationship. Now they seem to be dismissing both of those things, and I’m tired of it. Let’s handle all of these characters with a little dignity, hmmm? *eyes entire production staff*
^THISSS ALL OF THIS. THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS GOD DAMN SHOW.
