Oh my goodness, such an awesome episode.

Okay, so for all my talks of watching it on the EST livestream earlier - I actually totally forgot it was on and got distracted with visiting my mum... so, yeah, I then had to wait for it to download on my mum's slightly crappy internet connection... this is all to say that I haven't been drinking, but I'm exhausted, because it's 1am here. So, same difference?!

But seriously, who cares about my life when there's this awesome episode to talk about!!! Let's get to it...


Oh man... I just... I'm going to be writing about this episode for at least an hour, so strap in, I guess?!

We begin with Metatron and a dog - Metatron is still homeless and dumpster-diving for food, and he actually gives up his first find to the dog...which, well, who know Metatron has a bit of tenderheartedness left in him? But, man, I was not prepared for how far that would go... I'll rave about Robbie's choices about that later, probably... but yeah, I love Metatron as a more nuanced character than we've seen him in S9/S10.

Metatron gets frustrated trying to find food and yells "I give up!" and then suddenly finds himself in a bar - and not just any bar, as we discover... GOD'S BAR. But Metatron doesn't know that yet...

Metatron thinks that it's actually Carver Edlund (and interesting that he calls him by his pen name rather than his real name - the angels know all the prophets' names, so it makes me wonder if they knew him as Chuck or Carver.

Anyway, the hilarious thing here is of course that not even the angels knew Chuck was God - and Metatron just starts right in on putting down his work as hacky and melodramatic, etc. I love Chuck's response to this too, and I love it even more when you realize that Chuck didn't remember that Metatron couldn't "see" him and didn't  know he was God straight away. (If we take him at his word, anyway.)

I also love Chuck saying that Supernatural was "due for a reboot" - dude, it has to end before you can reboot it!!

Metatron sees the light (literally) and gets down on his knees - but God is having known of that and tells him to just call him "Chuck" - which, Metatron is less than impressed by - but really, Metatron went by Marv - it must run in the family. :P

Then we get to see Dean and Sam - but first, Dean is ironing! Yay domesticity! He's ironing with beer! (wouldn't that stain? - I am not going to try at home to find out, so someone else will have to.) Sam comes in with a potential soulless-case in Idaho and then it's off to Idaho! But first we find out that Dean was ironing Sam's shirt... awww.

Back to Chuck - who tells us - and here the audience is actually represented by Metatron, which is an interesting turn! - that he's been traveling, he started a blog, where he mostly posts cat pictures because they're so cute.... and he started a new series called Revolution but he doesn't think it's going anywhere (*snerk*). Metatron wonders if maybe titles just aren't Chuck's thing - Chuck doesn't argue. :P

Metatron wonders why God is Chuck - and Chuck says that he likes having a front row seat on the action, and also that acting is fun!

(Sidenote here: DAMN Rob Benedict is looking really good these days... like... he'll say it later, but he is SUPER CUTE.)

Metatron asks why the amulet didn't work, if he was God the whole time - again, Metatron is doing an amazing job of being the audience/us - Chuck, of course, uses the same excuse that I've headcanoned ever since it was confirmed canon that Chuck was God - ie: He's God, so he had the power to "turn it off".

Of course, while he explains this, he actually holds it up! Then he teases us by saying he should put it back - and that we'll never guess where it's been this entire time. And we MIGHT get our answer later!!! (I say might, because it all depends on the word "back" in that sentence and whether or not Chuck actually did that.)

Metatron then asks if God is there to destroy him, what because of all the evil he's done. Chuck doesn't answer, instead he sililoquies a bit about humanity's greatest creation - music! (and also nacho cheese)... music is magic...and... something something about it lead God to decide to write his autobiography - only, he needs an editor. Hence, this is where Metatron comes in.

I love when Metatron asks if this means God's going to make him an angel again, and God/Chuck is like "no, that's never going to happen." So, that's all she wrote for ANGEL Metatron.

(Also, sorry if I keep switching between God and Chuck as names - I was going to just use Chuck the whole way through, but I keep messing up, so I'll just use them interchangably unless they aren't interchangable in contest. )

Back with Sam and Dean! They're working the case! Sam sees autopsy photos of the victim and realizes that it's the Darkness!Infection - oh no!!

Meanwhile, Metatron has read the notes, and can't hide the fact that he thinks it's horrible. Chuck can tell by the look on his face, because it's the same look his last editor gave him when he handed in Bugs (*snerk* - poor Bugs/Kripke). Metatron points out that there is a glaring lack of detail - like the fact that God wasn't alone in the beginning. God does NOT TAKE KINDLY TO THIS REMINDER.

Then suddenly we're back on earth with Deputy Harris - and OH NO! THE FOG! HER CUTE FIANCE IS IN DANGER! Noooooooooooo!!! (is literally what my notes say)

Metatron tries to give God writing advice - God has gone on way too much about his time as Chuck, when the more interesting stuff is the God stuff. Chuck takes offence - he's had a lot of fun being Chuck and done a lot! He has a blog! He's dated - both girlfriend AND boyfriends (and I squeed - because I may be an atheist, and this God may be even more fictional than "actual" God, but having a God with the same sexuality as me still meant a heck of a lot.)

Metatron says that currently the autobiography makes God sound like a grounded likable person - but the problem is he's neither grounded NOR a person. "So you do admit I'm likable?" (Hahahaha)

Metatron wants the juicy stuff - he wants the details about the archangels, whom God hasn't talked about AT ALL, not even Lucifer, who was his favourite. Chuck denies that Lucifer was his favourite.... which I find very interesting...he's either lying because he's still mad about the rebellion thing, or he's telling the truth and my secret headcanon might be confirmed... we'll see?

There are two types of memoir - truth and fairytale... for there to be truth, there needs to be revelations and soul-bearing. God points out tha he doesn't have a soul  - Metatron points out that God INVENTED souls, so that shouldn't matter.  He then accusses God of "hiding" in Chuck - instead of being the badass that Metatron knows he is. The badass who has a lot to answer for. He has to hold up a mirror and see his true self - basically write for himself.

Sam and Dean having been woken up early in the morning to come out to the Deputy's house, where she has indeed killed her cute fiance and then taken off in her vehicle. Sad times.

Back in God's bar, Chuck is working on his second draft - this time, Metatron is loving it. It's "angry with a side of bitter". Since they're getting along, Metatron asks God why he created life in the first place. God says that he was lonely. Metatron brings up his sister again - but God points out that he's "being" and she's "nothingness".

So, my headcanon that SPN was a dualistic universe was technically correct, only instead of God and Death, it's God and "Darkness" - I kinda like Death better, but fair enough, given that you can't have Death without Life, but you CAN (theoretically) have Life without Death - so it makes more sense for God/Life's equal to be Darkness/Nothingness. Also, since God=Light in most monothiest mythologies, the opposite really would be Dark.

God wanted to show the Darkness "something better than us" - but every time he tried to create, she would destory his creations. So he locked her away so that his creations could live. He believes that nature is his greatest creation, because it creates on it's own - and it also wipes the slate clean on it's own when something goes wrong. Metatron realizes that the Darkness is dangerous because she doesn't wipe the slate clean, she DESTROYS the slate.

Meanwhile, back with Sam and Dean, the fog is rolling into town. The deputy pulls up - heavily infected with the Darkness - with a message for Dean - the Darkness is showing people the truth, that the light is a lie... and "he's not going to save them" and "it'll all be gone forever" but "not you, Dean." AND JEEEEEEEEZ... what fate is worse for Dean than being the sole survivor of ALL OF CREATION!?! I would argue NONE. That's a horrifying concept and Dean must be terrified.

Back with God and Metatron - God goes on to say that where nature is perfect, HUMAN-nature is toxic. Humans are constantly killing people in his name, and then praying to him as though he's responsible. God argues that he took responsibility by leaving - that no one likes a helicopter parent.  He's kind of pissed at Sam and Dean, because he loved them, but the world would still be okay with Demon!Dean on it, but since Sam couldn't live with that, the Darkness is now going to destory everything, and that's on Sam and Dean (... I don't know about that, I guess Demon!Dean might have been a case of wiping the slate clean, but he's still murder the world again and again and again...)

God mentions how many times he's helped them - saved them, rebulit Cas more times than he can remember (love it - mainly that God basically "gifted" the Winchesters and angel...whether he helps or hinders).

Metatron accuses him of hiding - that's he's hiding in the pathetic Chuck-disguise. Chuck argues that he's SUPER CUTE. (And he is correct!)

Metatron realizes that they're in the safest place ever created (the bar) because God is hiding there for it all to be over. Metatron pulls out the big guns then and says that while Metatron migh have been a crappy replacement for God, at least Metatron wasn't a COWARD.

Much like Marty McFly, God does not take kindly to being called a coward.

Metatron gets flinged through a door. He's thrilled that he's illicited God's wrath, because that might get God fired up about NOT being a coward. God, though, is just mad at Metatron and digs his thumbs in where it hurts - mainly that the only reason God chose Metatron as his scribe was because he was the closes angel to the door when God walked into the room.

God says he's not hiding, he's just done watching humanities failures. Metatron posits that it's not humanities failures - but rather his own.

Meanwhile, back in Idaho, Sam rescues a baby and it's the CUTEST - but for how long are they going to be rescued?! The fog rolls through town, taking everyone in it's path... Sam and Dean try to barricade a few survivors in the Sheriff's station - but it's sort of hard to make a reliable air-tight seal against semi-sentient fog with 3 seconds notice.

Sam soon gets infected, much to Dean's dismay. Dean hasn't changed that much from Croatoan and refuses to leave Sam - he barricades the survivors in another room and stays with Sam in the fog filled one.

Back with God, Metatron makes a last ditch effort to get through to God...when God asks Metatron why he tried to be God, Metatron admits that it was a cry for attention - attention from God. That even if Metatron was just the closest one to the door (and MAN, Curtis Armstrong is so good here, because you can see how God has crushed him by removing the belief that he may have been special in some way, trusted by God for reasons other than convenience)... that Metatron still got to sit in God's light and warmth, and then was abandoned, and left bereft.

God tells him that he left him (and humanity) because he was disappointed.

Metatron argues then on humanities behalf - that they are God's greatest creation because they're better than he is (which, is exactly what God wanted to show Amara). And they're better than he is because they never give up.

Speaking of never giving up, Sam is quickly dying of the fog and yet he is still trying to seal windows and save people. He collapses and immediately talks about how pointless it all is, and it's clear he's lost all hope - and MAN, it's so jarring to hear Sam talk like that - you really do realize that 9/10 times Sam is the optimist of the show.

What's even more heartwrenching than Sam being pessimistic is that Dean PURPOSEFULLY BREATHS IN - but he can't get infected! So he yells up at the heavens to "STOP THIS - YOU HEAR ME YOU DICK!" and I gotta think he's talking to God there, not Amara, or else he wouldn't have used a male-coded insult.

Then of course, just in case my heart wasn't broken enough - Dean starts telling a dying Sam that he's "right here" - again, not atypical behaviour and very in keeping with the "I'm not going to leave you" of Swan Song. Oh man, my heart.

Back at God's bar - he starts monologing to Metatron, who is not interested because HE'S disappointed in GOD. Chuck tells him how he lied about learning guitar - he actually just gave himself the ability, same as French... and then he encourages Metatron to read the new pages, while he starts to sing "Dink's Song (Fare Thee Well)" (which I looked up after the fact, because I'm not up on my centuries-old American folk songs apparently!

Metatron has such a look on his face - and again, with the choice of chorus of "fare thee well" - I was really concerned that whatever God was planning, it might be the destruction of himself (...and I mean, I could still be right?! Who knows!)

But the point is, back with Sam and Dean - Sam's pocket starts to glow, and then IT'S THE AMULET! IN SAM'S POCKET?!?! So, if God put it "back" - does that mean that it's been in Sam's pocke the whole time?! Or did God not put it "back" but instead plant it in the pocket?! Oh man... we'll probably never know, but I don't care.

The amulet is burning brightly, and everyone is miraculously okay!! Sam and Dean, dumbfounded, wander out into the street to see that the deputy is back alive and so is her fiance! And not only that, but there's Chuck, helping people up off the pavement. He turns around and sees them and says "We should probably talk"

And oh man, am I ever interested in the next 3 episodes!!!


Next week I'll still be in Ontario, but hopefully I'll remember to watch it on EST - mainly because it's NEARLY 3AM! Oh man... It's a good thing I'm still half-on Vancouver time. :P

As per usual, let me know what you thought in comments! Please forgive memory lapses and spelling mistakes!

Robbie Thompson is the new God.

I really couldn't see how they could make the character of Chuck believable as really being God...but damn, Robbie wrote it and Rob Benedict acted the hell out of it--when he throws Metatron through the doors--that was a God that you don't want to piss off!!! and yet I totally bought his nebbish I-just-wanted-to-have-some-fun persona too!

And how did it happen that by the end of the episode, Metatron, the villain I have hated the most out of every villain in 11 years, had me rooting for him?!?! Everything he said to God was in perfect character with the obnoxious, preening, supremely-pleased-with-himself-monologuing asshole that I've hated all along--except he was using his overconfidence to tell God the hard truth without worrying about the consequences to himself--as a motivational speaker he's a jerk and yet he shifted God's viewpoint--which saved Hope Springs and Sam and Dean and possibly the world...

Chuck had the amulet in his bar and when it showed up in Sam's pocket I thought Chuck transported it there when he decided to save the boys after all. I interpreted his 'you don't know where it's been' to indicate where he tracked it down after it was tossed in the trash. Really, how could Sam have physically still had it after being in the Cage? And if it had been left in his stuff after Swan Song, wouldn't Dean have found it then? Too many holes for me to believe it was in Sam's pocket all along...But I loved Chuck saying he was God so he could turn it off. Also loved his offhand comment about putting Cas back together repeatedly.

But that song at the end--that was a farewell song, and put that with the expression on Metatron's face when he read the last pages of the story, and I have a bad feeling about just who is going to end up being sacrificed at the end of the season...suddenly I care about Chuck as much as I do the boys after watching this episode...

I have no idea where this is going to go, and I salute everyone involved in making year 11 so amazing!!!

I know, Robbie is AMAZING - I didn't think I could ever like Metatron again once he turned evil, because I HATE villains - but man, suddenly he was both himself AND the audience surrogate AND it was all believable. It's just amazing - and Rob and Robbie (ha!) did such a fantastic job marrying Chuck's personality with the personality of GOD.

My only disappointment is that the writers of the next three episodes might not be as good?!!?

Like I said in my review, I'm only basing the idea that Sam had it the whole time on Chuck saying that he should put it "back" - but I like the way that Robbie wrote it so that (unless it's confirmed in the next three episodes) you can believe what you want about where it's been. Personally, I don't find it hard to believe that Sam had it SOMEWHERE the whole time - it didn't necessarily need to be in the coat that he wore into the cage, and it may very well have been put into storage (and judging by how much wardrobe from the early seasons Sam has, we know Dean probably didn't go through/get rid of his stuff. He probably couldn't bare to look at it... much like his leather jacket that he packed away too. So, yeah, to me, it's not far-fetched at all. But that's me, and... like I said, I like the fact that Robbie left room for us to make up our own minds and use our own headcanons.

I definitely agree about the fare well song...not to mention (I watched that scene again after I wrote my review) Chuck had tears in his eyes as he sang it. It'd be really interesting if Dean ended up living in a godless universe after all - he's always been my favourite atheist.

But I do care about Chuck just as much as the boys, and I don't want to see him go.

S11 has been so rad. I can't even imagine where they're going to go from here for S12. It boggles the mind.

My main thoughts watching were - "Wow, God's a dick, I see where the angels get it from" and "I can't believe it's Metatron as the one who is getting to call God on his bullshit" (ironic and yet perfect). Right up until the end of the episode...

Haha, no kidding - I think it was actually the ANGELS that were made in his "image" and then humans were made in the image of what he liked to believe himself to be. :P

It was a great episode. :)

Love everything
What an amazing episode, seriously and I said this on twitter, why Rob Thompson isn't the official writer of SPN? Isn't that possible?

I don't know if you're agree, but some reviews have pointed out, this episode was more focused on the conversation between Chuck/God and Metatron than on the Winchesters, and I agree. But I believe was necessary, because there were so many questions to answers. Is been SEASONS that Chuck was absent, and now he cameback and I wonder how thing will gonna be.

You know, this episode brings to my mind my that classic song What if God were one of us lol. And as what is been happening on SPN, made me told to a friend this series is writing its own version of the bible.

On a side note, what did you mean with is has to end before the reboot???

Re: Love everything
Robbie Thompson is amazing and I just want him to write everything. He has so many other projects though - like also writing Silk for Marvel, that I'm mostly just afraid of him leaving completely or writing less - I don't dare ask for more (though I desperately want it.)

I definitely agree that this episode was primarily about Chuck and Metatron - Sam and Dean were the B plot really, they were just there to illustrate the escalating situation. I don't think that was a bad thing though - like you say, after seasons without Chuck and seeminly centuries without God, they needed a whole episode to address the main questions.

This series is DEFINITELY writing it's own version of the bible - and I love it. It's always been a very humanist series - and this just continues the trend, by basically making God both divine and human.

On a side note, what did you mean with is has to end before the reboot???

You can't reboot something that's still happening. Like... they can't start an entirely new Arrow show with an entirely new cast while the first Arrow is still airing new episodes. The only reason they can reboot Ghostbusters with an entirely female cast this time is because there hasn't been a Ghostbusters movie with the old cast for over two decades. That's what I meant. That's defining "reboot" as "the same story, told again, or differently." But maybe Chuck meant "spin-off" or "expansion" in which case, you could totally do THAT before the original series ended.

Re: Love everything
Oh thanks for explaining what did you mean with reboot. Umm I'm not sure if I ever read about it, did Kripke ever said anything? Because is been said that Chuck is loosely based on him. So either in RL truly intended to do a reboot, or was just a "joke". I personally never read anything, so please if you enlighten me :)

I wouldn't mind to read the printed version of Supernatural's Gospel lol, and totally agree I love this more human point of view when it comes to divine creatures, mainly God.

Re: Love everything
I think it must have just been a joke and not been in reference to anything. Also, I realized after I wrote this review that it was Metatron who said that, when he was trying to suck up by lying and saying that he loved SPN - so, it probably was probably meant to be an offhand non-meaningful comment.

Last night’s episode was amazing. I have to admit, I was sort of ambivalent on explicit on-screen confirmation of Chuck being God up until then, but I do like how the show handled it!

Also, Metatron was actually not distasteful to me here! Giving him an adorable puppy helped, and him and Chuck playing off one another really worked for me.

I don’t think I have a whole lot to say about the episode, other than that, but we’ll see.

Agreed about the ironing domesticity moment being amazing. Especially with Sam yelling after him about the beer in a way that, at least to me, implied that this was not the first time Dean had done that…

I think one of the things I like best about this season is that, now that all the internal Drama from the past three seasons has been more or less shoved under the rug, the boys interacting is so sweet even when they’re deliberately annoying each other. That and the fact that the arc plot integration into even MotW episodes is approaching S5 levels of finesse. Two of my favorite aspects of the series are back in excellent form this season, which makes me very happy.

Re: the answer about the amulet…I’m with you, I think Sam could have held on to it the whole time somehow, but I somehow doubt it was in that specific pocket until Chuck put it there at the end of the episode.

I did really like the way the ‘are you going to make me an angel again’ question was handled. That was a nice little moment. I think maybe part of why Metatron is less making-me-want-to-punch-his-smug-face this episode is that he’s at a point where he’s acknowledged that pretty much everything he did since Sam and Dean shamed him out of retirement was pretty horrible…like, even when he started doing one of the things he does that annoys me most (i.e., stealing from other characters and not doing it as well as they did but somehow being more successful at it; this time he borrowed Gabriel’s last speech to Lucifer), it more amused me than annoyed me? So, yeah. Props to Curtis Armstrong and Robbie Thompson et all for making Metatron almost likeable.

To date, ‘Bugs’ is, I’m pretty sure, the only episode of SPN I’ve never actually seen? Not because of its legendary badness, but because I am terrified of bees and I started it once and the buzzing sounded like bees and I just noped on out of there, lol.

Yes, SO MUCH squee for the ‘dated some guys, dated some girls’ line.

You know, re: God’s favorite Archangel, I was discussing with…possibly Roommate, possibly someone else, I don’t recall, and we came to the conclusion that Gabriel was actually the favorite? Though I’m not sure how we managed that. We went back and forth for a while, though. The one thing we decided without any debate was that Raphael was the unfavorite. Poor Raph…

Agreed about the new spin on the duality of the universe. Though I still think Death is either just faking so Sam and Dean will quit calling him every season or two, or started the long, slow process of Dean ascending to replace him or something. Which would put a different spin on Amara’s fascination with him, possibly? IDK.

Also agreed about Amara’s plan for Dean being his absolute hell/worst nightmare.

And about Cas being God’s gift to the Winchesters (…thaaaat came out wrong) being great, the way it was stated/handled.

Sam extracting the tiny one from the car was nine kinds of adorable, at least.

Agreed about Curtis Armstrong really selling how crushed Metatron was.

Oh, man, Sam dying and Dean’s ‘I’m right here’ and then the room with the civilians behind them going ominously quiet in the background…man, that moment was incredible.

And then it ended amazingly, with God pushing a reset button, and I am pumped for the next three episodes, if a little bewildered where they can go for S12…

I felt the same about them confirming Chuck was God - but I like the way it turned out, definitely.

Yeah, the fact that Sam says "quit ironing my shirts with beer..." means that Dean's definitely done this before. Otherwise, Sam would be like "you can't iron shirts with beer!" or "Did you iron my shirt with beer?!" Instead he knows exactly what Dean's done. :P

the boys interacting is so sweet even when they’re deliberately annoying each other. That and the fact that the arc plot integration into even MotW episodes is approaching S5 levels of finesse. Two of my favorite aspects of the series are back in excellent form this season, which makes me very happy.

Same! I've been loving this season for those reasons.

To date, ‘Bugs’ is, I’m pretty sure, the only episode of SPN I’ve never actually seen? Not because of its legendary badness, but because I am terrified of bees and I started it once and the buzzing sounded like bees and I just noped on out of there, lol.

You aren't missing much. My favourite part of bugs is a scene where Sam is pulling the impala into a garage, and Dean is standing outside holding up the garage door for him - and as Sam passes by, he reaches out the driver's window and punches Dean in the crotch (or tries to). That's the highlight of the episode for me. :)

we came to the conclusion that Gabriel was actually the favorite? Though I’m not sure how we managed that. We went back and forth for a while, though. The one thing we decided without any debate was that Raphael was the unfavorite.

I have my own theory, but I don't want to say anything about it, because it MIGHT be confirmed?! I don't know, I guess I feel like I'd be jinxing it? Which is pretty stupid, since the episodes are already written. But yeah, of the archangels, I'd agree that either God didn't have ANY favourites, or Gabriel was his secret fave. ;)

Though I still think Death is either just faking so Sam and Dean will quit calling him every season or two, or started the long, slow process of Dean ascending to replace him or something. Which would put a different spin on Amara’s fascination with him, possibly? IDK.

Oooo interesting theory! I could get behind that, but only if Sam then ascended to the role of Creator, so that the duality was maintained in some way.

and I am pumped for the next three episodes, if a little bewildered where they can go for S12…

SAME! This feels so much like a series finale - I don't understand how there can be a season after this (and possibly a 13th as well - if Jared gets his wish of going 300 episodes.)

If I didn't address anything in your comment, it's because I agree with you!!

A good(ish) episode was long overdue! It's like the writers had been on a deadline to write more MOTW episodes!

Hey! My dog's name is Toto. Also Totoro. He's cool like that.

World's best dad mug!!!

Why the hell are the visual effects (?) different (and worse!) than the last time we saw the... black tree-like thingies on people?

And the fog is different too!

God Chuck is kind of a dick!

Never thought I'd like an episode with Metatron in it. The last Metatron episode I liked was when they introduced him. Fine, Meta Fiction was ok too.

And Dean Sam had the amulet on him all the time? Sam WAS the last one to leave the motel room, when Dean threw it away? No? Awwww...

I'm really getting tired of the clean Impala!

Re: Then we get to see Dean and Sam - but first, Dean is ironing!

Yes! Adorabable Dean! I liked the ironing scene so much more than the (meh) clean Impala scene.

Re: He's ironing with beer!

Oler people (like really really old people) know how to moisturuze the laundry they are ironing by spitting on it. It's really an amazing quality.

Re: Back to Chuck - who tells us [...] he started a new series called Revolution but he doesn't think it's going anywhere

Is it about the Revolution series https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolution_(TV_series)? Oh wow. I never thought it had more than one season.

Re: (Sidenote here: DAMN Rob Benedict is looking really good these days... like... he'll say it later, but he is SUPER CUTE.)

I concur!

Re: Meanwhile, Metatron has read the notes, and can't hide the fact that he thinks it's horrible. Chuck can tell by the look on his face, because it's the same look his last editor gave him when he handed in Bugs (*snerk* - poor Bugs/Kripke).

I actually like bugs! And I know a lot of people who like Wendigo, too.

I'm looking forward to the last episodes of this season!

It's like the writers had been on a deadline to write more MOTW episodes!

They have been. It's the same every year - there's always a whole run of MOTW between 11-19, with only 1 mytharc episode part way through. And yeah, every year, people get sick of the MOTW episodes. :P

I totally missed the World's Best Dad mug when I watched. :P

I wonder if VFX was running on a deadline? Or maybe TPTB ordered a change?

There's still argument about whether Sam had the amulet or not - since Fandom can never agree on anything. Some say (including Jim Michaels) that God put it in Sam's pocket and it wasn't already there... but I think that Sam DID pick it out of the trash in the motel room and had it the whole time, maybe not in that pocket, but SOMEWHERE.

And yes, they were referencing the Revolution series. :)

I also know people who liked Wendigo. And I like parts of Bugs, just not all of it. :)
