Anonymous asked: Well I told ppl that if Kevin dies I'm just not watching the show anymore, so there's that. And I guess I'm glad that metatron considers him enough of a threat to make sure he's killed. But it was much too fast and sudden, and I knew this was coming from last week but Kevin managed to trick CROWLEY. He went from being completely unprepared for the lifestyle to doing really well and he saw light and happiness at the end, a life of his own. (1/2)
(2/2) I was mad because the show is just killing people for shock value now, but then I also noticed that there aren’t any people of color or females left in the recurring cast (Jody mills only comes by maybe once a season so she doesn’t count) and I really just hate what they’re doing to my favorite show.
Ok… well first of all, if you wanna stop watching, then stop watching. It’s just a tv show. What’s the point if it’s no longer entertaining for you, right? I stopped watching Glee a long time ago, best decision ever.
A few things though.
1) The show has ALWAYS killed everybody off for shock value. What was the point of Pamela’s death, exactly? The Roadhouse? Jo and Ellen, while dramatic and drawn out, didn’t have any real long term impact. Kevin DOES. They’re short a prophet now, and even if they get the tablets back they won’t be able to translate them. Sam is never gonna forgive Dean (and maybe Dean doesn’t deserve to be forgiven, *grumble grumble*). Cas, re-angelified and all, is probably not gonna forgive Dean so easily either. It also underlines how much of an unscrupulous, power-hungry dick Metatron is, and how Zeke/gadriel?/gadreel? is a reluctant follower.
2) Oh man, please don’t make it a racial issue. Exempting Kevin from death just because of his skin colour is pretty condescending, As an actual Asian turtle, I demand the right to have our characters get the shit killed out of them just like everyone else, instead of being kept on for the sole purpose of being a fucking diversity hire. Just no. I think there are loads of valid reasons to be pissed at Kevin’s death, but please don’t use race as a justification for your anger, especially when EVERYBODY dies and it’s practically a rite of passage. Kevin is more than that. I’m sure you have good intentions and all, but… just… just no.
(…No females left in the recurring cast? Charlie? Jody? Abaddon?… And Linda is probably gonna come back as a demon or something. *fingers crossed* Also the alpha vampire is still kicking somewhere around.)
3) See, when Bobby “died” at the end of s7, I was very frustrated. “How could you do that to Bobby? What the hell is this anti-climactic bullshit? Why didn’t you just let him die in Death’s Door? Fucking boring waste of time.” But I think the difference is, I get the feeling that the fandom imploding and threatening to take arms against the writers and raging impotently and hating the show for wasting Kevin’s potential when he still had so much to offer… for better or for worse, I think that’s what they were going for. I think it’s exactly what they wanted. Sadistic bastards.
4) And… are you really gonna give up on this season? Not on season seven? It’s hard to watch it live, though, I get that. Though I don’t know about you, but I want Zeke/Galadriel’s goddamn head on a plate. And Metatron. And, to a certain extent, Dean Winchester. Do you not wish for revenge, anon? Do you not want to see Metatron and Galadriel get what’s coming to them? Because them bastards killed our fuckin’ prophet, and TFW ain’t gonna let that go. So if you want to see Kevin motherfucking Solo be avenged, then take my hand and keep watching with me.
KEVIN TRAN ADVANCED PLACEMENT! KEVIN TRAN ADVANCED PLACEMENT! FUCK YOU METATRON!
