"Meg kinda died — everyone on Supernatural kinda dies. [I] can’t speak specifically to Meg right now. I personally thought the send-off episode that Robbie Thompson wrote for her is really wonderful. I think myself and Bob [Singer] — like anyone involved in Supernatural — when someone dies, you want it to count a little bit. So there are no immediate plans to bring her back." —Jeremy Carver (x)
Excuse you, Mr. Carver, but we are not having any of your shit. Meg Masters had one of the greatest stories on the show, with amazing development. And you think the send off was good enough?
Yes, in your mind, a thrust with a knife and pushing her to the side was exactly the send-off that the longest-surviving repeated character deserved.
As for someone’s death counting, let’s review, shall we?
Sam died to save the entire world. He was supposed to stay dead, to show the sacrifice he was willing to make. But, even with Kripke gone, the writers decided that they couldn’t end the show there.
Gabriel’s death was important. It had meaning. He died helping humanity in a war that he initially wanted no part of. And yet, apparently he isn’t dead either?
Bobby singer died and his flask burned as a symbol of the need to let go of loved ones. But he’s returning too!
Not to mention all the times Cas came back.
No, apparently death is only permanent if you are a female. Did Jo come back? Ellen? Anna? Linda? Bella? Pamela?
I mean, seriously, they brought female characters back just to kill them!
So, Jeremy, fun, don’t you fucking dare excuse the unceremonious death of Meg Masters by saying that death is supposed to mean something. Because it seems to me that this is not the norm of the show, and you are just using it as a cop-out to excuse to cover up the blatant misogyny that even one of your stars recognizes.
I’d love to see her back. But my problem isn’t just that. It’s this piss-poor excuse you gave us for why she isn’t returning.
I agree. How much actual screen time did Meg have in her last episode? 10 - 15 minutes? No more than 20. That’s not a send off.
