It is not Supernatural anymore. It's Super Soap. Hey Carver, change the title cards to big soapy bubbles, why don't you, and stop misleading the viewers.
Good to see that there's clear thinking individuals that are not pretending to like this soapy crap just to be "good fans."
Let's hope Carver gets the messages and fixes the damage he's caused. I doubt it though. He just cares about the soap now, not the supernatural. He is going to drag the Samelia crap on and on and on.............

@Jon. You are entitled to enjoy S8, as everyone is entitled to their opinion. IMO S8 is not good. Team Fee Will was Dean, Sam, Cas & Bobby. It is only Dean & Cas now. Sam is NOT showing Free Will IMO, he is badly written and is having a boring non-relationship with a woman who doesn't suit him.(This is reality TV, fixing sinks). They could have paired him up with someone interesting if they wanted a romance. He is not "doing what he wants", he just looks bored! Also, he was uninterested when Dean returned from purgatory. IMO Kevin & Garth are awful, and nothing has happened yet! BTW I DETEST reality TV!!!!

Supernatural would be heading for cancelation if it had not been changed to Wednesday. Arrow is the ONLY thing responsible for increased ratings, and if Arrow begins to suck, Supernatural is finished. I don't think I care much at this point. Season 8 sucks. There is so much wrong with it. Team Free Will where? Don't talk crap. EVERYONE is written out of character, yeah, even Cas. Sam and Dean are being dicks to each other, this is NOT character development. It's a sign of Carver just faffing about. Stop sucking up. Carver. DOES NOT deserve praise for this mess. If you don't criticize, this show won't improve. Just saying. Probably too late to fix up this mess anyway. Pity. This show was fantastic once. Not anymore.

@Guzzball again
Team free will?
That's exactly what were watching. Sam decided to do what he wants. (Not Dean wants). Genius...

Well believe it or not, I like this season. If don't like it, easy...stop watching. Season 8 ratings have rise..season 7 ratings were so low..this season is not perfect, but none season has been perfect. If you're looking for something perfect, go watch reality TV.

H8 Season H8. H8 Amelia. Also, what happened to the Archangels? Cas only killed Raphael, so there are others left. Why wasn't Kevin saved by them when Crowley caught him and the future prophets? H8 Kevin so I hope they wrap up his story ASAP. H8 the way Bobby has been replaced by Garth. They ruined Bobby's exit by turning him into a ghost in S7. H8 the whole tiresome Amelia story. Bring back Sam & Dean's bond. Stop the Amelia, Kevin and Garth crap. "Bitten" was unwatchable. Bring back Gabriel, Lucifer, and demons. H8 the way Sam didn't look for Dean, and that he just changed lightbulbs.

S8 is far from gr8. It is failing to keep me interested, which is sad as it is my favourite show. The Trans and Amelia have ruined it. The prophet should have been older, and intriguing. There was no need for a mom character. The very uninteresting romance between Sam and Amelia has put me off. The fill in characters such as Amelia's dad, husband and the motel clerk should never have been in the show. That money could even be used to do more special effects. I liked Cas's wings and bright eyes. They should show Crowley's horns, and when angels fight we should see wings. The show has lost its excitement. We need hunters and monsters.

It seems the only good thing in this episode is that Samandriel gets rescued. As for Sam's choice, it shouldn't have come to this. Amelia is married (and crap storyline about her husband being killed in the war, then she got a phone call from him saying he's alive). Sam's choice should be to hunt things and save lives. Hope his choice is over and done with quickly and we never see boring Amelia again. Sam could get a hunter girlfriend who is dynamic and has something in common with him. In S8 he doesn't care for Dean, and even wanted to kill Benny, when in canon he was "the freak" who gave monsters a chance.

I agree - worst season ever. Agree that the Trans are terrible, and Amelia is boring. Where is the magic spark between her and Sam - I can't see it. A very boring "romance". She and Sam have nothing in common. I too hate to see Sam fixing sinks and working at a motel. I agree that "Bitten" was the worst episode. I like the way Cas and Dean are friends again, but I think they overdid the evil Cas thing in S7. Cas needs a good storyline because he is an interesting character. Hate the way they killed off Bobby. They need to save Supernatural - bring back the brotherly relationship.

S8 is the worst season. What on earth was "Bitten"? That was abyssmal. Kevin is whiny, and his mom annoying. The writers have no respect for the fans' intelligence. How did mom get the large demon into the boot of her car? Respect the fans and keep the stories sensible. No more water-pistols. A few comedic episodes are nice, but the bulk should be serious. The brothers' relationship is gone - Sam "wanted a normal life when Dean is missing?" Get real. "Normal" means fixing lightbulbs and getting the most boring girl friend ever? Cas and Dean are good, but bring back the brotherly banter.
