SPN #12x16 Ladies Drink Free (episode review)  
Please make sure you read my disclaimer before flaming me, lol...

Disclaimer: Most people who know me know that I am NOT a fan of Claire, and I am not shy about expressing that. If that bothers you, please stop reading. Thanks.

Yes, I expected Claire to be saved. Yes, I was not thrilled about it. This character ticks me off because she's always come off as a snotty teenage brat. I have no patience for people like that. Also, to me she really doesn't have any redeeming qualities, except for her devotion to Jody and Alex, I guess. She's always come off as pretty Mary Sue-ish. I saw a BTS video with Dabb and Singer for this episode and they proclaimed her a "fan favorite." Okay, to each their own but I do have to wonder how many people are really huge fans of her...is it mainly the diehard Cas and/or Destiel fanatics? Maybe teenage fans who identify with her in some way? I'm genuinely curious. If you love this character I mean no disrespect, really...It's just that as someone who has tried to like her but can't, I'm curious as to why she appeals to people, that's all.

Okay, that rant's over, sorry about that... Anyway, I wonder what's going to happen with Mick now. He still does things differently from the way the boys do it, but I guess this was kind of a learning experience for him. He did decide not to kill Claire right away and instead at least restrain her..plus use that experimental blood cure on her. I wonder if there's going to be some conflict between him and the other British MOL or if he's going to eventually fall back into line with them and go up against the boys. I noted Dean's distrust of him throughout most of the ep (though I rolled my eyes when he described him as Sam's BFF or whatever it was when he was snarking to Claire about them), but it looks like he came around just a bit at the end there.

One more thing about Claire: I felt sorry for Sam having to be paired up with her. Calling him a "Skeezer", really?? And then whining about them treating her like a stupid kid...I actually yelled back at the screen "but you ARE a stupid kid", lol. She still wants to hunt alone and she drives off into the sunset alone...hmmm, anyone think there's a spinoff in the works? I hope so...not that crazy about seeing here on SPN.

That's about all I have. It wasn't the worst ep I've ever seen, but she really knocks it down quite a few notches for me. Oh, well, at least the boys were pretty. :)

Oh, one last thing: The werewolf guy with the cape and Scream-esque mask? Lame! Oh, and they're finally airing previews for the next episode again! Yay!!!

SO not a Claire fan!

I happened to catch the last ten minutes, with the full moon and onward. It was so bad I turned the sound off. Just going to delete it off the DVR.

Glad I'm not the only one!

I don't blame you. Not one I think I'll ever rewatch.

I don't t know, Claire to me feels a lot like a mix between Sam and Dean. Sam's brattiness, desire for independence, and Dean's use of false bravado to hide her insecurities

Now that you mention it, I think I could see that a little bit. I just don't know if she still comes off as a bit Mary-Sue-ish. Maybe it's just me though.

I hate Claire, I hate she as now been in two of Sam and Dean episode's when she is supposed to be there just to give Castiel a storyline.

Singer and Dabb called her a fan favorite.....fucking please.

Supernatural can't write teenage girls, they try and make them cool/badass and it's so forced. Also I LOVE hearing a hunter wannabe like Claire call Sam old.....yep 30's is old now. SPN is down with the kids.

So yeah I didn't actual watch the episode because I hate Claire (not as much as Charlie-sue but she's getting there.)

So for me SPN isn't back from it's break till next week.

Did you see the promo for next week?

Eileen is back!!! I hope she and Sam get some nice scenes and Mary sleeps with Ketch.....Really Mary

So glad there are more of us than I thought. I actually didn't mind Garth too much (well as much as I mind Claire), but I noticed they kind of phased him out after that s9 episode (when he was a vampire or werewolf, I actually don't remember now lol). It would be nice if they'd do the same with Claire but we know that's not going to happen. *sigh*

I almost choked when he said that.

Exactly. She almost comes off like a Mary Sue to me as well. LOL that was pathetic. I remember some young girl said the same thing to Dean back in the early seasons... I think it was the ep where Gordon turned into a vamp and then Sam killed him? Anyway this girl they were interrogating, they asked him about the vamp guy and she said "He was old...like 30" and Dean made a face. LOL I don't know why I remember that so much. I think it was because I was almost 30 and rolled my eyes.

I don't blame you hon. I almost didn't want to watch it but I ended up watching for Sam.

I know I'm replying late lol but I loved seeing Eileen back and I really hope they won't kill her off!
