Season Nine’s “Character Development” and “Multi-Layered Storytelling”
In case it’s unclear, that title involves use of
So let’s talk for a moment about Season 9 of Supernatural.
Going into the season, we were promised great things:
Regarding the “broken landscape” that season 8 left behind, we were told by Jeremy Carver to expect “A lot of players this year and a lot of players for the throne of who’s going to rise to the fore here, and there’s a lot of really juicy options that we’re going to be introducing, so we’re excited.”
What we have seen, though, is a broken king of Hell in a bunker cell and the trunk of a car, posturing with a rarely-seen Abbadon. We’ve seen Bartholomew once, and he was flat and generally uninteresting. We’ve seen Malachi once. We’ve seen Metatron once, same episode. None of these interactions really made a massive impact on the viewers, save Metatron outing Ezekiel/Gadreel. For the most part, the plot of the season has been put by the wayside in favor of one-off “funny” episodes.
And as for these new, individual angels… “I think the angels that have fallen are not a monolithic force, in that we treat them for the most part as individuals. And in that way, we’re really able to dig deeply into these individual characters, who are these angels.”
Well, I don’t feel I’ve gotten to know any of them particularly; and the ones we do are killed rather quickly, before we can truly care.
We had Carver telling us that we’re going to be getting a new look at these characters, a fresh understanding of them, in interviews saying “I think, especially after nine years, we all tend to put our brothers and the various supporting characters into certain boxes that we tick off: “This is who they are, this is how they would act,” and I think any time we can find a piece of the past that maybe makes us look twice at our characters, and maybe adds a couple extra layers of complexity, is always fun.”
What we’ve seen though isn’t development of these characters, it’s either regression or out of character. New layers implies that they build upon past ones, not slather over them to blot out what we already know. It’s one thing to think outside of that ‘box,’ and another thing to take these characters we love and render them unrecognizable.
And there’s the perpetual commentary about how character driven the season is:
Carver: “So we’re always trying to turn over a new dimension and new sides to our characters. I think we’re all really excited about taking a really strong character approach.”
Singer: “We left so many balls in the air and we have so many great characters that we haven’t paid off that we’re kind of telling a … I hesitate to say ‘soap opera,’ but that kind of character-driven, multilayered storytelling.”
But what have we seen of our characters this season so far?
I think this perfectly portrays all the little, but meaningful, reasons why I stopped watching the show at the beginning of the season. The characters aren’t themselves. They aren’t the characters I came to love. They’re twisted, repetitive versions that aren’t ‘different’ but painfully flattened and watered down for no reason. Blockades for Castiel (powers) obviously don’t apply to Zeke (Gad, bad guy, backstabber) which makes the effort to put off a deux la machina seem pretty insignificant in earlier seasons. The reasoning has me lost and that’s what makes me put down the show. I never got emotionally attached to the new badguys (I didn’t even feel a bit of fear or anger. Even Raphael I disliked for being a tyrant. And Naomi I disliked for twisting Cas’ mind and actions). I just don’t care about them. All I’ve come to expect is more pain and I’m not so much a masochist.
I honestly think the writers have beaten the SPN horse for a little too long and they’re allowing fans’ mixed view points run the show. What they’re doing now is just annoying and I really can’t stand to watch it anymore. I will continue to value what I’ve seen, but putting myself through season 9 just puts too much stress on me and I’ll enjoy the gif sets from afar on tumblr.
no but rly sam’s face whenever cas does something cute
he’s not judging or annoyed or mocking, he’s genuinely fond of the big old dork that cas is HE jUST THINKS HE’S SO ADORABLE HE SMILES AND THE LITTLE FURROW IN HIS BROW MELTS AWAY
HE JUST THINKS CAS IS ADORABLE
And this has been true since their first episode together. <3
THE ONLY PLACE WHERE ANY SPN CHARACTER CAN BE HAPPY:
Is in fluffy fanfiction and pretty fan art.
