"Supernatural" Catch Up Marathon: 6x06
Updated: Jun 5, 2020
Season 6, Episode 06: You Can't Handle The Truth.
One lovers spat isn't enough, Cas. Not to teach Dean Winchester EMPATHY, anyhow.
Man, Gods are dropping like flies in this show. Soon there will be only ONE left ( and guess which one— Oh! Is that why this show will NEVER take a chance on having queer protagonists? >.< ).
But seriously! You would think that a 'God' would be a whole NEW level of difficulty, in league of their own, you know what I mean? At the VERY least, they would require more than ONE episode to defeat, right?! Hell, with all of the culturally diverse religions to choose from and the infinite creative possibilities for interpreting them in a modern setting, plus the fact that they've all been brought into the same 'universe' where they can interact with one another, the Gods of various mythos could have been a story arc ALL ON THEIR OWN!!!
But nooo.... Instead they have Lucifer kill a good chunk of them in ONE EPISODE—Hell, in less than a minute—and then they have the MORTAL Winchester boys pick off the rest, one per episode.
SAM: I'm me, Dean. Look, please, just let me explain.
DEAN: Why the hell should I believe anything you say?
SAM: Okay, okay. You want the truth? Here it is. Here it is. God's honest. She was right. There's something wrong with me, really wrong. I've known it for a while. I lied to you. Yeah. And...I let you get turned by that vamp. Because I knew there was a cure, Dean, and we needed in that nest! And I knew you could handle it!
DEAN: Handle it?! I could've died! I could've killed Ben.
Awe, Dean was only worried that he could have killed Ben. Poor Lisa.
