Did anybody else feel a tad... disappointed by how easy this was? Spoilers ahead...
So yeah, Dean killed Abaddon, the last Knight of Hell, last night. And it felt kind of shrug-worthy. There was all this talk about how Abaddon was going to ravage the Earth, and she was creating a brand new demon army, yadda yadda... but in the end, she went down ridiculously easily. I have to assume there's a twist coming, like that army is still out there, but still. Buh?
It's not just a letdown because it was too easy, though — also, it makes this season feel even more aimless than it already did. There were two main plotlines: the Civil War in Hell and the angels fighting over Heaven. And you had to assume that at some point, they would maybe converge. But... apparently not. The whole thing with Abaddon and Crowley feels like a gigantic shaggy dog story at this point, and you have to think this show maybe loves Crowley a bit too much after all.
