> So they brought her back and then killed her off again?
They wrote her back out after they realized it was a bad idea. An arm reaching to the sky for ideas in which they ran out. This (and other) shows should take some intelligence from Curb Your Enthusiasm and take a year off every now and then when you run out of good ideas.
> What did she do for the boys, pack their lunch each day before hunting?
Pretty much yes, it got to that point. Like they wanted to add in a "mom element" that other shows have or something. It was painful!
> You know what I miss? Angel. Season 2 Angel, specifically. They ruined the series

> That whole Spike whooping Angel's ass thing was bullshit, to!
In the latest Supernatural season it is a mess of bad ideas. At multiple points they have Nazi episodes. In one Hitler literally gets a new body and you sit through painful garbage and bad fake accents seemingly just to get to the end scene where they make a bad twitter joke that doesn't even hit, linking Trump to Hitler. It's sad. Then since last season they set up a king of hell/satan/god/angel battle that you think is going to end with a bang and it sizzles out in boredom. Worst season yet and that is coming from a big fan. I've seen every episode.
