Mid-Week Diary

OK, so the ending of Dark Side of the Moon still bothers me. And the more I think about the episode in general, the more it bothers me. I need therapy. You may not agree with me, but I just have to vent! So just let me do this..

I just think that perhaps my problems with this episode is that, it wasn't as well written as episodes written by the star writers such as Sera Gamble, Ben Edlund, Jeremy Carver, Julie Siege, Raelle Tucker, Cathryn Humphris, Nancy Weiner and Eric Kripke himself.

Note, the following episodes (including Dark Side of the Moon) were written by Daniel Loflin & Andrew Dabb.

Yellow Fever
It was fun, but the "Dean is a dick" thing sparked fans' anger. I mean, we love Dean, coz he is such a dick sometimes. Anyway, Eric Kripke had to come out and address it: "Dean is not a dick, he is a hero."

After School Special
It was probably one of the best episodes from Daniel Loflin and Andrew Dabb.

Jump the Shark
It was a good episode, however, the whole 3rd brother thing was good material wasted.

I Believe the Children Are Our Future
Great episode! I love Jessie. To me, it was a better episode by their standard.

Sam, Interrupted
Pudding! It was an ok episode, not the best I've seen, but it was ok.

Dark Side of the Moon
The inconsistency of this episode bothers me. The first half was great, if you read my review, I absolutely love some of the scenes (probably one of the best scenes of the show). But let me put it this way, I am 666% sure this episode would have been better if it was written by any of the star writers as listed above.

I think the story idea was there but the character stuff wasn't well executed. I get the whole angst, losing faith thing, perhaps
they have to write stuff that makes fans angry and then hopefully we can patch things up. I mean, somebody has to write the angry shit, right?!

But here is the thing, I personally feel that it was a bit of a try-hard from Daniel and Andrew. On one hand, they were sort of going for the epic-ness, but on the other hand, they didn't achieve it. The character stuff was a bit wonky. Is it just me?

I don't know which writer created the character God (for example Ben Edlund created Bela & the Ghostfacers, while Jeremy Carver created Castiel), so whoever created the character God, I pray and pray they don't screw it up.

Hammer of the Gods (Yet to be aired)
I wish to GOD, Daniel Loflin and Andrew Dabb don't fudge it up.

I am nervous when I know an episode is written by Daniel Loflin and Andrew Dabb. It's like they should just stick to the fillers and leave the characters stuff to other writers who would and could maintain and treat the characters with justice. Am I making sense? I just think that if the above episodes (including Dark Side of the Moon) were written by the star writers, the over quality would be much better and I am sure I'd be more satisfied.

Anyway, I don't mean to offend Daniel and Andrew or anyone, but that just happens to be how I feel about it. Still love you guys, but I wish things would've been written and treated better.


  1. I think I second that. It just didnt have that spark

  2. Hi ...hmmm I don't know. I loved the episode from start to finish.The final scene completely broke my heart, and I wish it could have been different but it was so very real to life. Dean in many ways is like a parent who sees his child grown up - thinking the child is not needing him, not wanting him around. Sam is one step closer to understanding how to express to Dean how he does want him around, as well as understanding that himself. I so hope he picked up the amulet and will find a moment - a way to communicate that all his need for independence was not about his feelings for Dean - that he did not always understand how he was affecting Dean. I think he always imagined Dean would just be there - always the same. This is actually about Sam learning. And at the same time Dean allowing Sam to grow up as hard as that is. I do think it is good storytelling when we hurt along with the characters. and ...remember Ash did drop the line about the soulmates sharing heaven - think Sam and Dean were supposed to hear that about themselves - but didn't - we did. And Castiel never doubted that Dean would find Sam..and it was revealed there are so many heavens and the rareness of sharing. Just some of my thoughts. Take care.... Jo

  3. Hey Jo! Yeah.. the writers are tearing our hearts apart while we see great drama unfold. Can't wait to see where it leads! I am so excited about the 100th episode and beyond!
