Interview with Jeremy Carver [x]
You’re so full of shit, Carver. This is just your paper thin excuse for how you don’t have an explanation for why Sam and Dean have been so OOC this season. Even Bobby was like “why the fuck are you and your brother acting so weird?” in 8.19. Maybe if, aside from this one thing, season 8 had made a modicum of sense, not butchered previously established characterization and canon, and carried an actual emotional storyline for more than 2 episodes (Dean’s PTSD, anyone?), I could believe you, but season 8 has just been one long exercise in shoddy-ass writing.
Remember how a whole garrison of angels was needed to rescue Dean from hell, yet a little holy water, a demon, and a reaper was all it took for Sam to get to not only hell, but also purgatory? Remember when Castiel and Crowley spent all of season 6 looking for purgatory but it was just a taxi ride away all along? Remember when killing a reaper was such a difficult thing, it was one of the 66 seals and you had to have Death’s Scythe to be able to do it? Remember how you fucking wrote that episode (4.15), Carver?
You not only don’t have a logical reason for why Sam didn’t look for Dean, why his character has been dumbed down to “I want to get out of the hunting life” when he got over that schtick seasons ago, you rubbed salt in the wound by making it embarrassingly easy to get to purgatory and hell.
