After 15 seasons and years of hard work, filthy fictions and arguments of colleagues, Supernatural finally made canon Destiel.
Of course, Destiel is the couple of Dean Winchester and the angel Castiel. They have long (like, really long) become fan favorites, something even teased and hinted at many times throughout. Supernatural’s run. But it’s also controversial, with a lot of debate in places like Tumblr about the true intentions of the show’s writers.
The prank is also often referred to as queerbaiting – a term meant to alleviate the little weirdness for LGBTQ fans, but never fully commit to not making anyone else sad.
Now, as the show nears the end of the series on November 15, it gives fans what they want. Well, something like that.
On episode five, Castiel tearfully proclaimed his love for Dean in a scene was actually a punch in the gut of Destiel lovers.
“Ever since I pulled you out of hell, I know you’ve changed me. Because I care, I care. I care about you, I care Sam, I care about Jack. But I care about the world.” for you. changed me, Dean, “Castiel told Dean.
Then, when Dean asks why it seems Castiel is saying goodbye, Castiel says, “Because it is. I love you. Goodbye, Dean.”
He is then dragged into a hell but worse dimension and dies, leaving Dean sobbing on the floor.
But even though this is a declaration of love, many people are completely dissatisfied.
First, there is the fact that Dean did not react to Castiel’s statement, making the whole thing flattering, and is typical of Dean’s very straightforward masculine brand.
Sadly, Castiel was immediately killed after his confession, in a great example of “burying your homosexuals”.
Out of all the gay ships to ship to ship this one is quite disappointing.
But no matter how you feel about it, you can’t deny that there’s a certain Tumblr vibe — around 2012 right now.
And the moment is truly one serious problem to anyone deep in the fandom.
And frankly, a lot of things to deal with overnight are inherently stressful.
And then, to make all of this even more bizarre, people started joking about Destiel and a report that Vladimir Putin would resign. (The Kremlin has rejected that report.)
It was just weird. Everything is so strange.
Supernatural There are two more episodes, including the two-hour finale, so there’s still a chance for the show to change. But, you know, don’t hold your breath.
