I don’t like how they’re using Castiel’s powers as a convenient plot device. Like ‘oh, we need to find someone we’ve hunted in the past for information’ - *Cas disappears, reappears a second later with Lenore* What the hell? I realize it would have taken far too much time for Sam and Dean to try to find someone on their own but it just seems too easy this way.
And then Cas goes and kills her without a second thought. While it was a really cool special effect …. no, just no. Another cool female character down the drain. Granted, Amber Benson’s acting in this episode was subpar but I really liked Lenore and it would have been cool to see her character developed.
Though I gotta admit, the parallel of a dangerous woman begging poor Sam to put her out of her misery so she couldn’t hurt anyone was intriguing. Madison in Heart, anyone?
But I’m just sick of the way this show uses and discards women. Especially if you’re going to put more emphasis on secondary characters like Bobby and Cas, why can’t you include some ladies?
Preferably ones that don’t die or turn evil or both. Just sayin’.
Am I alone here?
