Everyone is entitled to their opinion! To me, they were equally unnecessary. The other young versions of Sam and Dean were so much better imo and I didn’t feel the connection with these new ones. Obviously, it would have been impossible to get the others since they went with the age range they did but still.
There were other things that annoyed me but I suppose I’m just not excited by much this season. There have been some good moments but overall I’m finding it lackluster especially for being the final season.
I agree wholeheartedly; Dean always needs all the hugs!!
