We’re several weeks into summer hellatus and information about “Supernatural” season 8 is light. That means, plenty of time for idle speculation!
In reading the volumes of interesting comments and discussions in the “A Deeper Look at Season Seven Dean Winchester” and “A Deeper Look at Season Seven Sam Winchester” articles, I got thinking. How will each brother evolve from their experiences in season seven? What direction can their characters go in season eight based on the progression we’ve been given so far?
Now granted characterization was a mess from a writing standpoint, but when looking at the forest from the trees there was an overall pattern with each brother. Dean struggled with depression and apathy for the job, Sam just tried his best to function every day given the entire mess going on in his head. Now that season seven is over, the assumption is that they will move on from this. Is that a true assumption? Exactly how do you think they will?
Here are the discussion questions:
What sort of Dean Winchester do you want to see in season 8? How would you like his trip to Purgatory to change him? Or not change him?
What sort of Sam Winchester do you want to see in season 8? Is the entire Hell wall ordeal over, or will there still be lingering side effects?
What sort of brotherly relationship would you like to see evolve from season seven?
What sort of role should secondary characters like Castiel play in their lives?
I’m very curious to see the responses, because I’m not sure myself how to answer these questions. Even in a few weeks when season eight information starts coming out at Comic Con, I don’t think we’re going to get a clear picture on characterization. Or maybe we will if I get to ask Jeremy Carver that question. :)
So speculate away! Feel free to even share your wish list vs. what you think is really going to happen. October is a long way away.
