Supernatural‘s “Unity” saw Dean being the legit worst as he fell into God’s miserable plan to destroy…well, everything. Destroy the universes, destroy the bonds between brothers, and to destroy each other as a means to make Team Free Will 2.0 do what God what he wants. And we’re tired of it. Someone help me figure out how to fast forward this where God gets taken out or put into his place like he so rightfully deserves. And don’t even get me started on Amara and how she was put “into place” by men who didn’t respect her or truly care for her.
Let’s dive into Supernatural‘s “Unity”!
Damn It Dean
First of all, how dare you? Second of all, HOW VERY DARE YOU!? Jack isn’t family? Since when? Because I’m pretty sure the adoption papers went through. He is your family and that’s the truth. And you know who doesn’t want you to see him as anything but a means to an end? God. That’s who!
Like, damn it, Dean. I understand your anger and your pain. And I’m not even talking about how Dean feels about Jack when he accidentally killed Mary. That’s a whole other thing that Dean has been slowly but surely working through. Dean’s anger and pain come from feeling like he’s been in a hamster wheel all this time and not Team Free Will like he thought.
The way that Dean treated Jack in “Unity” is completely unacceptable. Jack is family. Maybe not in the same way as Sam or Cas, but he’s part of them now. No take backsies or telling the kid thanks for sacrificing himself for the Winchesters. He’s the kid, they’re the adults, and it should be the opposite like Sam who is trying to protect his kid.
*deep breath because I’m hella angry*
But I’m willing to give Dean a chance because he saw with his own two eyes that this was all part of Gods plan to separate and weaken them. The only place to go from here is up and I’ve got to believe that Dean finally understands that they need to stop playing into the hands of others and live for themselves. And that right there includes Jack, every day of the week and twice on Sundays.
God Needs to Get Over Himself
Honestly, God is the most immature character that I’ve ever seen in my entire TV watching career. Correction. The most immature character I’ve ever seen in my life. *insert baby cry here* Your toys don’t to be part of your twisted game anymore? Suck it up, buttercup and get over yourself for the last and final time.
Life, which you created, is a wonderfully complex bag of good and bad. And you can’t just destroy EVERYTHING because you’re mad. Seriously, think about it, dear reader. God created humans to have free will and all that jazz. But apparently it was all a lie because the Winchesters finally stepping out of this rat race he created is something bad and that he wants to crush with an iron fist.
Every time his character appears on screen now, I hate him a little more. At least before it was a tiny bit of fun how he had written them to be the heroes of an epic series. The fandom went wild for that shit and ate it up. But now…well, now we’re tired and just want God (and the heavy hitter Billie) to stop using the Winchesters for their own petty reasons.
Amara Deserves Better
I know that the majority of this review is me complaining but I can’t help myself. There’s even more about this episode that pissed me off. Amara deserved better than being used by two men who are chomping at the bit to destroy each other. And we’re tired of this bullshit and what Supernatural does to its female characters when they’re not killing them or cancelling proposed spin-offs starring women.
God, her brother, trapped her for eons with not a care in the world. And when she gets free, which we don’t excuse anything that she did in her time of anger, and finally gets her shit together…he comes around to play her again? Seriously, as if that wasn’t bad enough, Dean used her as well and the story because all about the men of this story. Effectively, they fridged Amara as well.
And it sucks to be feeling this way about a show that I love to the moon and back. But again, I’m tired and will not deny the fact that this show has a history of screwing up women to advance the stories on others. And if the upcoming preview, which has Charlie in it, rings true…our girl is going to die too and I’m not here for it. Not one bit. But what can I do but watch and hope the Winchesters survive this nightmare long enough to set these characters free any continued torture?
Supernatural airs Thursdays at 8/7c on The CW.
