I had planned to include “Do You Believe in Miracles?” in the “Season/Series Finale-Palooza,” especially since I hadn’t covered the previous two episodes. But last night’s ending was so shocking, it must be addressed immediately and can’t be hidden underneath Grimm and Warehouse 13.
So, in a word…
Here’s the thing, though. I haven’t watched “Do You Believe in Miracles?” in its entirety yet. In a rare moment of impatience with this show, I fast-forwarded to the final 15-20 minutes. (I was simultaneously watching the overblown Dancing with the Stars finale because, although I’d sworn off the show, Charlie White danced two routines which required watching and gushing.)
Further thoughts on Supernatural’s season finale will be forthcoming, but first, allow me to rant.
I’ve been quite active in the DWTS forums at Previously TV (the replacement for the dying Television Without Pity). In a contentious season of questionable judging, opposing fan factions, and high passions, the conversations have remained civil, respectful, and even-keeled.
I had hoped, given a clean slate, Supernatural fans would set aside their petty differences and behave themselves in a less biased tone. But it was not to be. The rampant obsession for Dean and anyone he interacts with (other than Sam), along with the apathy, and even dislike, for Sam continues. What a shame.
I shall return later in the week discuss the season finale more thoroughly.
