    Right now I am watching Metamorphosis. I read an interesting fanfiction over the weekend (non-slash, I swear; I would never recommend anything else) called Ghosts of Future Past by etrix (over on AO3).

    Anyway, right after the confrontation with Sam/Ruby at the beginning of the episode Dean meets a ghost in the interim of Dean walking out on the warehouse scene. And the Ghost of Dean tells Season 4 Dean (he gets killed sometime in Season 6) that he has information that would help stop ‘it.’

    It really worked well with this episode.

    In the show, Dean is still dealing with his Hell-Trauma so gets physically aggressive with Sam (heck, he punches him out) and Ghost Dean imparts knowledge which helps Dean deal with Sam and bring him ‘back to the light.’ (And as an added bonus, he is acting so calm, Sam doesn’t notice him following him to a Ruby-assignation and Dean kills Ruby before Monster Movie (next episode) so for me it was a Plus Plus story.

    I really liked the episode last night and it was the first time nobody online (in my memory) had no issue with The Nepotism Twins and one of their scripts.

    The only thing was WHY didn’t anybody mention Michael.

    Are they going to make LUCIFER a good guy (it appears they are going to do so) like Metatron who got (I think) sent into The Empty for his attempt to save humanity? And boy was Amara pissed!

    Oh, how did Dean get back? She seemed kind of angry that he betrayed her by ‘talking’ to Chuck.

    Oh, I liked Donatello and am so glad Kevin got to go to Heaven. I would like them to bring Linda back though.

    Like I said, no problem with the script, just I wanted to hear ‘more’ about some things.

    Oh, for you and me, Paula, I was sorry to hear about Donatello’s cat.

    BEST thing on Legends of Tomorrow: Kendra has one minute beginning, one minute ending.

    Still don’t get why the Time Masters told Savage to kill Rip’s family. I mean, yeah, so he’d go in the past to kill Savage and manipulate ‘him’ to join with ‘them’ is dumb. IMO.

    WORST thing on LoT: No more Snart, robber of ATMs? NONONONONO

    1. Paula R. Stiles

      There’s a rumor about that Wentworth Miller wrote an apologetic letter to his fans saying he had to pull out of a con this summer because he was doing the Prison Break remake and then season two of LoT and it was too much to fit. So, make of that what you will.

        Can’t they find,a new Snart in the past. I think this show is a cluster f….

        ack! Dabb and Singer as showrunners. There goes any excitement for next year.

        1. evave2

          Have Dabb and Singer been named as showrunners for SPN? I thought Singer had pulled back from the show as EP.
