To all the writers of the show…
Forever disgusted that they used burning angel wings as the title card, leading the audience on to think this would totally be the season of angels, and then they completely dropped the ball on both the angel and Cas arcs, wasting a whole episode on bestiality jokes while most of the interesting angel shit goes happens offscreen.
They just fucking walked away from the angel story, Cas was human for like five minutes, nothing but bad things happen to him, he learns nothing nice about being human, completely separated from the Winchesters, can’t even get his own grace back (and the showrunner doesn’t even think that’s an issue, any old grace will do).
Forever disgusted that they used Misha’s status as regular to keep us all excitedly watching. It turns out Cas is in as many or LESS episodes than when he was a guest star.
And how did we find out?
A writing student said one of the writers, Buckner (the lovely one who gave us 9x03 and 9x09), said in front of a whole classroom Misha was signed for 11 episodes. Great PR, SPN. Great PR.
Why am I not surprised. It seems to me that quite a few of the writers and producers would like to see Cas go, and they can’t because they’d lose so many viewers on that. Someone made a chart/sheet/anything to see if there are writers/producers who consistently leave Cas out? (Glass?)
If I were Misha, I’d have walked out half a season ago instead of going to waste in a show that doesn’t seem to want him or his character in there.
You know, it’s the last paragraph that hurt the most. If only they had more respect for Misha and his fans…
Please, when did anyone have respect for Misha?
Ever since he came there, people and crew have wanted to cast him out. If he didn’t have such a strong fanbase, and those things we did last year to keep him, nothing would have happened. And you know Singer has been sweating on his neck all that damn time.
I love Jensen and Jared with everything I have, and some of the writers, God bless their heart, but sometimes, I wish they’d just try more on the situation with Mish.
But you know what is the thing that fucking bugs me to no end? It is the fact that all this bullshit happened when Edlund left. He was a strong voice on the final decisions (as a partial director, writer and consulting producer), that he was able to back up the importance of Castiel against the assholes who wished him dead. he did so for 4 seasons.
Everything, and I mean everything, from Jenny Klein’s episode to the god-awful 9x03, was a product of Edlund’s departure.
Because the show, without him, is falling apart.
