Summary: Sam and Dean are hunting a case in the cold Minnesota wilderness when an unexpected friend turns up. [read]
your honor may i approach the bench? thank you. your honor i would like to request that all the weird bro sex talk about poor dead possessed april be stricken from the record on the basis that shit like that would never come out of castiel’s mouth in a million goddamn fucking years
Damnit, guys. If you’re gonna bitch, at least get your facts straight. April was a REAPER. Reapers do NOT possess people. They are incorporeal spirits that can manifest into human appearances. April was a ROGUE Reaper hired by BARTHOLOMEW specifically to find Cas. She was never a human. The entire thing was an act. So yes, Cas was talking about the hot Reaper he banged. So what? I think he’s entitled to be maybe a slight bit disrespectful because she, I don’t know, tortured and KILLED him?
well, okay, but sources obviously disagree. the reaper herself talks about the “real” april kelly, and i’d argue we’re meant to believe we’re looking at her, possessed. no, reapers have never possessed anybody, not before this episode, and it’s a bizarre change. but i’m not making things up, the writers already did. incorporeal spirit or not, dean tortured another reaper in a human body earlier in the episode, and the guy did the characteristic “glowing eyes when stabbed” thing before he died, the same as possessing angels. if it wasn’t possession as we know it, the episode needed to do a much better job of explaining how it was different.
and there’s a subtle but fairly important difference between “disrespectful” and “sexually objectifying.” talking about how she was a jerk because she stabbed him is one thing. fantasizing about how hot she was is just… frankly, it was strange. honestly, and okay maybe it’s just me, but “cas talking about a hot reaper he banged” does not really feature on my internal landscape as far as “things i feel are comfortably within castiel’s established character.”
mr. mango just pulled a tupperware container out of the back of the fridge and stared at it for a long minute and then said to himself, thoughtfully, i have no memory of this place
it’s very similar to when you get edits back for an article and the comments are like “you should remove this vital piece of your argument because i don’t think i understand it” and you just sit there for the longest time wondering if there is water on mars and can you drink it and how soon can you get there
that moment when something so wrong appears reblogged under one of your posts and you sit there frozen wondering if you should a.) engage or b.) just fire yourself up in a rocket towards the moon
