You hear that screaming and wailing in the distance? It’s me losing it over EVERY. SINGLE. MOMENT. of Supernatural‘s “The Scar.” I thought I felt robbed before when The CW didn’t pick up Wayward Sisters. The revelation that Claire is a queer character and that we were about to get some beautiful queer goodness with her and Kaia, makes me equal parts angry and robbed.
Mix it all together with Dean blaming himself for Michael’s actions and our nougat son Jack coughing up blood, and you’ve got an episode that makes me want to rant for 45 years. But I won’t. I’ll just rant for a little bit and hope you stick around to talk about Supernatural’s “The Scar.”
IT IS NOT ALL ON YOU DEAN, IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT
You listen and you listen well, Dean Winchester. It is not your fault that Michael is hopping around and hurting people. You know whose fault it is? Michael’s! That bag of assholes is the creature/angel/person with sole responsibiliites for HIS actions. What you did, allowing Michael into your body, was born out of love. You were trying to save your brother (Sam), your friend (Cas), and your new little shadow aka Jack.
*deep breath* Ok, rant over. For now.
Sam is never going to blame Dean for what happened. If anything, he’s going to stick by Dean even more so he doesn’t throw himself into something stupid because he thinks it’s all his fault. Dean is not in this alone. He’s got family and people that want to help him. He best remember that before he does something truly stupid like try to take on Michael all on his own. Dean will be destroyed and all it will do is hurt Sam, Cas, Mary, and Jack.
Plus, it’s been 14 seasons. You’d think that in all that time Dean would’ve learned that going solo is not the answer. So here I am, hoping and praying, that Dean Winchester sticks around and lets his family take on some of the burden of what he’s going through. Sam, Cas, Mary, and Jack love him and there’s no doubt in my mind that they’ll be there to carry the weight of what burdens Dean.
That’s what family does and these people are his family, no matter if they’re angel or resurrected after 30+ years.
NO QUEER WAYWARD SISTERS? I FEEL ROBBED.
The CW, you mean to tell me that you passed on Wayward Sisters and deprived me of the queer goodness that I deserve in my life? IS THAT WHAT YOU’RE TELLING ME?! I knew there was something between Claire and Kaia. From the first looks to the first touch, I knew there was a spark between these two young women. Yes, it was a spark of friendship, but it was also a spark of romantic interest.
“The Scar” confirmed what I always thought about Claire and Kaia. THEY WERE QUEER. And personally I feel like I was robbed of QUEER HUNTER GOODNESS! Months after the decision to let Wayward Sisters go and not make it a show of it’s own, I’m still rooting for it. I want it, I need it, and after “The Scar” I want to find every possible way to support Wayward Sisters, no matter how small.
Because honestly, it’s not enough to have Jody, Claire, Kaia, Donna, Alex, or Patience mentioned when the Supernatural story needs them. They have the power, the characters, and the storyline of their own to launch a whole show of badass female goodness, especially if some of that goodness is queer! So stop being cowards, The CW. Take a chance and give Wayward Sisters another chance to shine on it’s own.
Give Wayward Sisters a show of their own!
I SWEAR TO GOD, JACK BETTER BE OK
*deep breath in* I SWEAR ON EVERYTHING HOLY IN THIS WORLD, IF OUR NOUGAT SON DIES, I WILL DESTROY THINGS, STUFF, AND PEOPLE. I DON’T KNOW THE SPECIFICS YET, BUT THEIR WILL BE WRATH FOR OUR SWEET SUMMER CHILD. *deep breath out*
*clears throat* Ok, back to business.
Ever since losing his powers, Jack has been lost. And for a moment there, we thought that Jack was going to follow in his dad’s footsteps and run away to find himself. But he didn’t. He stayed to help a young woman and proved to himself and Castiel that he has a hunter’s mind. So what if his fighting skills aren’t up to par. He has a hunter’s mind and a kind heart. That’s enough.
In true Supernatural fashion, I thought everything was ok. I thought everything was fine and that Jack had learned that there is more to saving people than having powers. Then Jack had to go and lie to his dad and cough up blood in a napkin. We’ve seen Sam suffer through this in season 8 and it’s kind of scary, sad, and heartbreaking that Jack is going through the same thing and hiding it from his family.
This powered down nephilim has gone through so much pain in his short life. Please don’t kill him, Supernatural. Give him a chance to survive, thrive, and make us all proud. He deserves a chance at a good life, even if that life he chooses is one of a hunter.
Favorite Moment from “The Scar”:
JACK KLINE SEES SAM, DEAN, AND CASTIEL AS HIS DAD’S. MY HEART. IT’S GROWING. SEND. HELP. PLEASE.
Food for Thought aka I Can’t Believe I’m Seeing This Now:
One, how did I not get a hug between Dean and Cas?! Two, there might be something to what Destiel shippers are talking about. Like, come on. Look at this. Look at Dean. Look at Cas. I see it there and I CAN’T BELIEVE IT TOOK ME 14 SEASONS TO SEE IT! *stares off wistfully into the sun wondering what else I’ve missed*
For clarifications sake, and those who are going to flip out at the mention of any Destiel, this isn’t me turning into a Destiel fangirl. (There would be nothing wrong if I did so anyway.) This is me saying that I see that spark that might’ve launched a thousand fics.
