I wanted to say, I'm glad that SPN is back, I was looking forward to it. This time, after the first spoilers bubbled up, I decided to stay away from spoilers as much as possible - I'll look at promo pics, I'll watch the previews on the CW site, I'm fine with eps titles, but that's it. Thing is, without John Winchester...is not the same for me. I do love the boys, I do. But John Winchester is sorely missed, and his absence takes away part of my squee.
Tamara= lovely Brit actress, kicking ass hunter, why couldn't SHE be the recurring female hunter of the season, why WHY? She's been hunting for 8 years, loses her husband hunter, she's great looking and I hope to see her back.
The boys= in great shape, both of them :) Dean, daredevil, I'm-gonna-die Dean is too awesome for words. Sam, all controlled and then letting it go, facing Dean about his attitude, it's a great Sam too. I'm looking forward to see what they will do with Sam's half-demon blood, and I appreciate very much that TPTB didn't jump on it right away - it's also awesome that we got some inkling of Sam being known amongst the black eyed demons (they do have a Demons Mail newspaper, don't they? ;) although I hoped for a moment that Demon!Meg might be mentioned, or even John Winchester's time spent in Hell...*sighs*
Bobby= I like Bobby. Bobby rocks. Still, I hate the idea of him as a father figure. Okay? Don't mention it around him, I migh hiss at you. Easy to be all cuddly and helpful, it's not as if he's been looking after the boys all these years, is it? *growls*
the Plot= cool enough. the ep actually seemed to be very short, I may have liked a bit more ...something, I can't pinpoint it, really. I need to rewatch it. But I like the 7 Sins idea. My instinc would have been to have a couple of the Sins escape so to use them in another ep, but I guess there's enough meat on the fire already, what the Killing-Demons Blade, which brings me to...
New Female Hunter and recurring character= hair and make-up? all WRONG. Jo was MUCH better, more natural in appearance. Long hair in a fight? Big NO. It just IS NOT PRACTICAL and/or SAFE, dammit. Otherwise, intriguing character. Her one line was trite, imo, very Buffy/Veronica Mars like, but the delivery was good. I liked her following Sammy and disappearing at the right moment/occasion. Please, please, actress, PTB, SOMEONE! TELL THEM THAT LONG, PERFECTLY COIFFEURED HAIR ARE WRONG!
I miss John Winchester.
I won't stop saying it.
But the boys are baaaaaacck!!!!! :D
