I think the reason why we all hate Metratron so much…beyond the fact that he just fucked everything up…
When he was introduced, we saw a part of ourselves in him.
someones going to have to explain to me how “sexist…but fair” is not the most disgusting thing ever uttered like who wrote that and said “yeah people won’t riot against us about it” and how are people in the fandom actually ignoring that line
“Sometimes you get to kill a whore” is worse, though, especially when you consider who said which line and what their roles in the story are.
This show began with revenge, and it all escalated from there. Grief, guilt, anger, they all piled on top of each other, making each step of the journey heavier and more difficult. Those that carried that weight did their best to hoist that revenge on their shoulders and soldier on, gritting their teeth and trying to get to the top of that mountain. Some of them collapsed under the weight, and some helped others stand back up; but all of them kept moving forward, convincing themselves that if they can just take one more step they’d reach the end, and their burden would be lifted.
But the top of that mountain can never be reached, because it doesn’t exist. Those carrying that revenge with continue onwards forever, slowly rotting as the grief, guilt and anger seeps into their bones and makes them into the very monsters they’re trying to beat. They either collapse or become twisted; there is no in between.
Perfect reading is perfect.
I’d like to proudly report that my sister is now seriously hooked on Supernatural. (I get a toaster, right?) Tonight we watched “Devil’s Trap” and “In My Time of Dying” and she ended up shaking her fists at the closing credits. She said she understood now why I had marathoned this show.
She also described John Winchester as “an ass” when we were three quarters of the way through “Devil’s Trap” and as “whackadoodle” at about the same point in “In My Time of Dying” — the latter caused me to nearly suffocate myself from trying not to giggle my way through the climactic scenes.
And now I’m off to read the newest chapter of Anarchy in the U.K. (XMFC, Charles/Erik), which I expect will be at least as omg awesome as every previous installment, because Yahtzee is knocking this one out of the park, omg.
