OK, now that I've watched the last SPN episode about a zillion times (I think I'm up to 5? I can't remember the last time I watched an ep 5 times!) I have a question, or want to hear your opinion...

My question is...they made this whole big deal about how only an angel can kill another angel. But that can't be true, because:

1. If only an angel can kill another angel, you'd think the angels would know that and therefore wouldn't waste time trying to find out what *demon* was killing the angels, as they would have known from the get go that it was another angel.

2.In "Are You There God", Castiel tells Dean "Six of my brothers died in the field this week." Errr...how? If only an angel can kill an angel, does that mean Uriel's been ganking angels for longer than they thought? So why did they act like "ZOMG, all these angels dying is unheard of!" in this episode?

3. Even Alistar said he couldn't kill an angel, just send it back to Heaven. So is *that* what Cas is referring to when he's talking about his brothers dying in the field? Cause that doesn't really seem like dying to me. I mean, I'd assume the demons would then kill the host, and the angels would have to find another one, but unlike hell, where there's a vested interest to keep the demons there so they make it difficult to leave, I don't think God would be all, "Er, you got sent back to Heaven, now you can't leave." I'd kind of assume He would be more like, "Find a new vessel, get your asses back in there! We're fighting a war, ya know!"

So....someone wanna fanwank that plot hole into making some sense? Sometimes I think the writers really need fans on staff to proof the scripts beforehand, in order to say, "Er, back in this past ep, you said this, so how are you gonna get around that" before the scripts go into production.

ETA: And for the record, yes I am fast forwarding through the Ruby/Sam scenes on all of these rewatches! LOL!

babe, i love you! you are among few who just not "squee" about everything but really think and ask logical questions i totally agree with :D

I haven't rewatched yet, but you can bet I'll be fast forwarding through that junk, too! :)

I totally agree with you on all this. And the fact that they need to have a staff member that just keeps up with the coninuity factor.
I love this show and will faithfully watch and support til the end and beyond, but lately I am disappointed. :(

Yeah, it doesn't make any sense. Kripke is just going way over the top this season and I feel a lot of stuff in retrospect doesn't make sense, like you pointed out. It's funny, I was talking to my mom the other day on the phone and she watches the show too and is usually really laid back about stuff concerning TV. And she said she was so disgusted the other night by the Sam blood drinking and she was getting really fed up with the myth arc and that it was way over the top and how she couldn't wait until next week to get a break from it all. Makes me worry about next season and what's in store.
