S5 DVD - I really hope there's Kripke-commentary to the final episode (I'm sure there will be), and in it, I hope Kripke tells us how it would have ended if there'd been no S6. The production person said on twitter that there WERE rewrites once S6 was announced, but she can't tell us what they were. I'd love to know.
Because it occurred to me yesterday that Kripke's arc was indeed a tragedy. I remember reading a meta in the past year that pointed out that Supernatural was following the basic rules of a classic tragedy - and at the time, I thought "Nooooo" because although my favorite play is Hamlet, I don't actually like the fact that everybody dies in tragedies. I like it when people dog-sled off into the sunset to find the Hand of Franklin.
That being said, I don't mind that Kripke's arc was a tragedy, and that really illustrates how awesome Supernatural is, because here are some facts about me:
1)I don't like one hour dramas.
2)I don't like horror
3)I don't like it when my favorite characters die (and they mostly always do, because I tend to fall for the expendable crew member.)
Yet: My favorite show is Supernatural.
Anyway...I got off track there...let's talk about S6 spoilers:
1)There will be a time-jump
-You know, a lot of people are freaking out about this and I don't know why. I think it'd be way worse if Sam were to just show up after only a week or 2 months or 4 months - it would totally diminish the sacrifice he made, and it would also diminish the loyalty Dean is showing to him by trying with Lisa even though he wants to die or get Sam back.
2)Jensen will direct an episode.
YAY! That's awesome. I can't wait. Also, if Jensen is directing, I'm assuming that it'll mostly be a Sam episode - because dude, Jensen is overworked as it is! So, that'll be neat.
Alright, well there isn't much point to this post, I'm just bored. So I'll go now.
