SPN #12x19 The Future (episode review)  
Posting this later than usual as I was out at a business dinner meeting and got back pretty late. I don't have much to say about this, but I will caution that if you're a Cas fan and can't take any criticism, please turn back. I don't want any flames here.

First I am getting tired of Castiel's continuous "poor pitiful me, I need so badly to redeem myself" act. Yes, it's good that he is owning up to his carelessness in letting Kelly escape in the first place, but this is too much IMHO. I was glad that the boys confronted him about ignoring them all this time and it was nice to see Dean pissed off and not willing to let it slide (Sam too, though to a lesser extent I guess, as we've come to expect). Especially after Cas stole the Colt (but would Dean really be that careless to have it under his pillow??).

Kelly is delusional the way she kept going on about the baby and how wonderful everything will be if he's allowed to live. I guess he was brainwashing her and now Cas is as brainwashed and delusional. I was actually hoping the three of them would haul their asses up to Heaven and stay there. *grumbles*

And the way he left the boys out cold there in the end? Yeah, this is just crazy. Does this whole setup remind anyone else of the end of season 6 when he was also being very shifty? I wonder if something similar will happen here. Oh and isn't an interesting coincidence that Sam predicted the baby would be born on May 18th, the day the season finale is supposed to air? Or is that the 25th and maybe the baby will end up being a week late? I can't remember at the moment.

The only thing I appreciated about this ep was the eye candy (both boys looked yummy, especially Sam) and the Stargate geek in me thought it was cool that Amanda Tapping directed this one...though I wish she'd been given a better episode to be honest...oh well.

The finale is May 18, so yeah that's the birthday. I'm not a Cas fan and I've reached the point where any review that doesn't call Cas either 1) Dean's boyfriend or (even worse) 2) Dean's husband get a rousing cheer from me. So basically, Great Review!

Oh okay, thanks. For some reason I almost thought it was the 25th and 12x22 was on the 18th, but I now I remember they said they're airing both episodes on the 18th.

Hee, thanks! It's good to know I'm not alone. :)

This episode was too fan-service-y for me. Also, the baby brainwashed Kelly and then brainwashed Cas, and isn't that the whole Naomi thing from Season 8? Fitting that Amanda Tapping directed it.

Yes, that was another major beef I had with it (the mix tape? Puh-leeze). Oh that's a very good point. I think you might be on to something there.

The ep was a fan service peace of shit. And the Destiehellers are going to cream themselves over the mix tape and wall pushing.

Castiel continues the pity party and ONCE AGAIN lies to the boy's (yeah Castiel that's worked out so well for you all those other times.) and AGAIN fuck's them over and puts them in danger.

But we all fucking know he will get away with it again because "he's Castiel"!!!!!

The only way this fan service crap will be OK is if its because they are finally killing off this waste of screen time.

BTW since when did Castiel see himself as the boy's protector? What a joke. Sam and Dean can handle themselves so much better then Castiel.

Pissed that Kelly and the sprog are still alive. I bet this stupid baby is going to be in S13.

BTW Jensen looked so done during the Dean/Castiel scenes. You can tell he is so done/knows the crazies will make a big deal of their scenes.

And I hate when the boy's are OOC for a side character.

Shitty ep can't wait for next week

Agreed (and for that reason I dreaded seeing Berens name as writer) and I'm already seeing them on Tumblr doing so. I had to block this one idiot who kept insisting that giving someone a mix tape is shippy, and how anyone who dismisses that stupid scene in this ep "has a lame ship that doesn't feature giving mix tapes." Not joking, that's what this idiot said. And they posted it in the JARED tag...when the post has nothing to do with Jared. Either they really are this stupid or they're doing it to torment brothers fans.

It would be nice if he would finally get his comeuppance and have to answer for all he's done, but sadly that's not going to happen because he's the Golden Boy. *smh* I actually heard some speculation about the fate of one of the characters at the end of this season, something that doesn't sound too good and I nearly hoped it was him but it obviously isn't.

I seriously had to laugh at that whole thing, they really seem desperate with that protector stuff.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if you were right about that, especially the way Sam said the baby is expected to be born on the 18th which is the date of the finale.

I noticed that too, I bet he was rolling his eyes when he was doing those scenes.

Yeah, I'd think that next week's ep will be even a little bit better.
