Last week’s Supernatural episode has been bashed all over the internet. Though I can see where some of the complains are coming from, boy, aren’t people such drama-queens: Parallels suck! Ghostfacers can’t act! Worst episode ever! Really? Worst. Episode. Ever? Here’s the thing: I loathe mindless negativity, rude comments, and overall trashing of something or someone just because one does not agree, or thinks he or she knows better.
People do have the right to their own opinion, just… be nice about it, because what’s the point of being mean? And there were some pretty mean things flying around. So I got a bit annoyed, and a bit sad, but to soothe the pain and gather the likes of those who actually enjoyed this episode (even if only to a certain extent), here’s a little food for thought, GIF style.
1 | The return of the Ghostfacers. It was once again a trip down Supernatural‘s memory lane, with the unforgettably hilarious Ghostfacers (I bet you’re singing it right now) back on screen to reach new levels of ridiculousness.
2 | Thinman himself. It was also another monster of the week episode, and though I was ready for some more Cain, I quickly forgot all about him when the freaky thing appeared: Thinman. A tribute to the internet monster Slender Man, this creature is a tall and slim disfigured man that patiently lurks in the background, stalking his apparently random victims… until he decides to kill them.
3 | A good jump scare. The episode begins with a teenage girl having a selfie session. Is that how people do it? When she’s going through the just taken photos, she notices that in one of them there’s a weird, manlike figure standing behind her. Boo! Thinman. Sounds silly? It freaked me out. I’m resisting the urge to look behind me right now. And that never, ever happened to me with this show. Ever.
6 | Stupid jokes that are Supernatural’s trademark. More here
7 | aaaand reactions.
8 | Dean killing an actual person, and not a supernatural monster. It’s been said that it could a side effect of the Cain mark… let’s hope so?
9 | Subsequent memes. #whenfandomscollide
10 | The gorgeous light work during the final scene. Dim the lights, queue tears.
So now let us eagerly await the brand new episode that airs on March 18th!
one for the road
