Most Overused Plot Device
Season Seven most of the time felt like “CSI: Supernatural” to me. This is no secret, since I did a whole article regarding this. It wasn’t just the suits and the fake FBI act. It was the constant repetitive MO, talking to the witnesses, visiting the coroner, investigating the crime scene, etc. It just so happened, every single one of these instances happened with the boys putting on the suits and flashing the FBI badge. Since when did the concept of “standalone” migrate to cop procedural?
Out of 23 episodes, this setup was used 13 times. However, the last five episodes of the season didn’t go with the FBI thing at all, so it was 13 times out of the first 18 episodes. Also, I didn’t count “Season 7: Time for A Wedding” which actually did follow the same investigation pattern, but they were reporters, not FBI agents.
I recommend starting season 8 with the FBI finally getting wise to hunters pretending to be their agents and start cracking down. That way, Sam and Dean could use other disguises like they did in the first three seasons. They can keep the suits, just as long as Sam loses the ugly grey one. It’s not his style.
That's a wrap on this year's awards! I hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I did putting them together. I can't wait to see the winners for season eight. Please share any awards that you would like to give in the comments.
