But never mind that, Season Three of TVD has been excellent so far and Damon still occupies far too many of my thoughts, yet... SPN felt old school, like Seasons Five and Six had never happened! Whee! Plus Osiris, being with Odin, one of my favourite gods, made an appearance I have been hoping to see for a long time and he didn't disappoint me like Odin did (for not having a big floppy hat). The thing is, I've missed the Dean angst and these stories where events are about the brothers themselves so, so much, that it feels like I have the show I fell for back again.
And because I'd thought Dean and his many issues had abandoned me forever and the show had annoyed me with crap angels fighting and being the excuse for silly meta episodes for so long, I allowed my head to be turned by a dark, broken Salvatore who can more than satiate my need for pretty manpain, but here Dean and his guilt and his big twinkly green eyes are again to sweep me back off my feet! This season of SPN is so much better now they've got rid of Castiel (not that I think for a minute that he (and the meta) won't be back, alas) and I'm engaged in the story again!
Watch out Damon, be ready to fight for me, because it looks like Dean's going to duke it out!
Now if things carry on the way they are going, this year's US TV season is going to be great! Now if only The Secret Circle could get its act together...
