so since cas can so easily rip out another angel’s grace and swallow it
does that mean that dean could hypothetically do it too?
LET’S JUST MAKE SAM AND DEAN AND CAS ALL ANGELS YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH *TAKES BONG HIT*
can i be a writer for spn now
because ideas like these seem to be the only requirement
People who think Moffat ruined seasons 1-4 and Nines arc really REEAAALLLYYYYY didn’t pick up on anything in the whole ending of the episode. Hating Moffat for no reason it seems. Shame.
That’s just it, though. He did, in retrospect, completely abolish Nine’s entire arc. After all, he was the regeneration that either saw the entire Time War or was there for the final moment. The Big Decision that ultimately changed the Doctor and set him on this new course.
However, you bring up a very good point: The ending. The ending where all 13 (clever thing there Moffat. Literally eliminating the possibility for there to be more Doctors after Capaldi’s 12/13. Although not clever at all. Arrogant and disrespectful) move Galfirey—I don’t even know why this was a thing that was allowed. Are there no more rules in changing fixed points in time and parallel universes, paradoxes, and just going back in the past to change an event anymore? Apparently not.
So basically, what he did was change the entire history of the New Who, eliminating the biggest plot point by shifting Galifrey into another parallel plane instead of destroying it. And then, basically saying that neither the War Doctor (seriously, as shitty as this plot was, it would have made much more sense to ask Paul back because he is lovely. But I am actually glad Paul was not involved in this train wreck).
And then, he used the biggest cop-out and lazy writing technique ever: Making all of them forget what just happened. This technique (just a dream, a vision, or a memory eraser of sorts) rarely works in a way that allows character development. All it does is give you an “exciting” story and then at the end, negates all of the development the characters went through.
You’re right, that technically Nine and Ten’s arc are still intact since Ten won’t remember and neither will the War Doctor who randomly regenerated with no real explanation.
Literally all he did was force his Doctor to the forefront as The Most Important Doctor In The Entire Universe because he’s the only one to remember. That’s just one reason I hated this episode.
Others reasons include but are not limited to:
-Bad Wolf Girl taking Rose Tyler’s form
-Having a secret regeneration of the Doctor
-No Other Doctors
-Vague or no explanations
-Ultimately crappy plot
So no, “we” (using that term loosely cause I do not want to speak for everyone) are not just hating on Moffat for no reason at all. We have many reasons, valid reasons.
I love how people on my dash are talking about gay subtext in Supernatural or Teen Wolf…
… and then comes Merlin and outgays everything.
i’mmmm just so emotional thinking about how Castiel went his own way to get himself a proper suit because he wanted to go investigate and he remembers the things Dean and Sam always do and even if Dean told him not to worry any of it but then how could he not? and maybe the part that resonated more in his mind was when he said he didn’t have his powers, Dean’s answer was quick and simple; so? he had never had any.
can we all just make a deal and pretend that this episode never happened?
a deal isn’t good enough, you’re going to have to take a purity pledge, you need to be a born again viewer, one who hasn’t suffered through 9x08.
So apparently now, after over a season and a half of not being interested in sex basically at all, Dean puts sex before people’s lives
That was… really insensitive, Dean.
She was trying to get away from her past, and you just… kept bringing it back up.
That was a dick move.
Fucking this! Her being a sex worker doesn’t mean her experiences were good.Her being a sex worker does not make her instantly available for sex.
She should have told him ‘go fuck yourself get out of my house.’
dude seriously we see dean talk about how much he resents “the adios” and then literally 10 minutes later watch him have meaningless sex with a stranger he’ll never see again ??? ??
i mean yay consensual sex, yay dean breaking his dry spell but did they REALLY have to tell that story at the expense of a sex worker’s life choices
she was tired of and probably at least mildly traumatised by her old life based on her dialogue but apparently all it took was one prettyboy chomping at the bit to bang a real live porn star to toss her decisions out the window
this is so stupid it has me defending cultists’ culty crap jesus fuck
"I’m calling the cops!"
”I am the cops.”
new doctor ladies and gents
