Dear My Friends

How come Sam could pick up Thor's hammer? was that ever explained? How about him holding the club doors against Lucifer's push? And other things like that? Does this give us license to write Sam with powers? I think the writers just forgot about Powers Sam again, lazy s-o-bs.

DEFINITELY writing Sam with powers! These are CANON instances, and there are others (Sam's psychic abilities never completely went away, so I choose to believe they're just dormant).

I also choose to believe they're dormant. They made too big a deal of them to drop them like that. They should have written a whole season around Sam's reawakened powers and what the consequences were.

Sometimes I wonder who they're writing for, and why they think we're all eagerly wanting more angel stuff.

This is a "LOL continuity" moment. I think there were two possible elements to Sam picking up Thor's hammer: 1) just a joke about how much of a brute Sam/Jared is, not intended to have real meaning, or 2) a nod to fandom's propensity to equate Sam/Jared with Thor, something I've seen oddly frequently in fic and art.

I'm always fine with giving Sam ALL the strength/powers, though. <3

I want this too!

I like the idea that Sam is as strong as Thor. I want the Winchesters to have powers and abilities on par with, let's say, demi-gods. Something like that. I can't believe that TPTB are trying to ignore that the Winchesters just aren't human at this point, not fully. I wish their writers were able to have as much fun with the idea as we fanfic writers can.

It's also something of an in joke, since the main reason for Jared bulking up the way he did in S4-5 was to audition for things like Conan and Thor. And when someone at the Nerd HQ mentioned Captain America, Jared sniffed, "Chris. Shoulda been Jensen," and at a con panel Jensen said to Jared, "I don't care how long Hemsworth's hair is, you'll always be my Thor." These were roles SPN fans expected they might be up for, and Jensen said at the time he couldn't get time off production to audition. So I suspect these were sly ways of referring to roles they might have played, had circumstances been different.

Or, you know, could all be in my head.

I love that they didn't mind throwing shade for each other, lol! It makes sense in that way, though. 'Course, the Cap story went through a few different versions back then, so who knows what's what with that whole thing.

In my mind, I'll always believe Sam was able to pick up the hammer because that's just how much of a Win-chester he is. ;D

Only the Worthy can pick up Thor's hammer.  Sam is certainly Worthy.       m.   ;)

The writers are either lazy or seriously forgetful. That's why *we* get stuck writing things to fix everything.

The writers are both. Time has gone by and they've gotten very lazy. Much as I love the show and the boys, we've reached Smallville level of lame writing, with the occasional gem to keep me hooked like a hooked thing. ;D

I don't know about Supernatural's version of Mjolnir, but the "Only the worthy" bit is from Marvel, not mythology. In fact, Mjolnir was stolen once, by the giant Thrym, and Thor had to dress in drag to get it back. Yeah, that was Loki's idea, and I can totally see Gabriel coming up with that plan on Supernatural. :)

As for Lucifer, when was this? If it was in Season 5, he may have been soft-pedaling in an attempt to get Sam to "Yes."

I woukld pay cash money to see Sam steal Thor's hammer while tricked out in drag.

That ep was when Lucifer was possessing Vince.

Chuck assists and gives Sam powers when he wants him to have them :D Also, probably Thor's hammer doesn't have the limitations that they have in our universe.

Chuck really needs to pick one set of rules for the boys and stick to them--well, at least if they're rules that i want. ;D


I *know* that Dean's holding a rabbit's foot in your icon...but my goofy brain always wants to see it as a mouse, like he's in some reboot of V or something, lol!!

YES hell yes it does. If the lazy buggers can't be assed to explain themselves properly then we can certainly do it for them and utilise his demon blood soaked system (however, did the ritual to cure Crowley cleanse him of his demon blood? That's always bugged me?!)

I always thought the Trials did that, so his blood would be pure enough for the ritual. But then, immediately after, he was infected with angel grace, which Castiel wasn't completely able to remove, so Sam's blood's still tainted - only with angel grace now instead of demon blood.

Sometimes I think they like to quietly imply, without saying it outright, that Sam is something more special than anyone gives him credit for - himself most of all.

I still think he would have been able to pull the Sword of Brunswick out of the stone, in tact.

We definitely think that's true. Sam has something in him that has nothing to do with the demon blood poison. I think that's why he always had the capacity for deep faith.

Powers!Sam is my fave, so dude - write the fuck out of it. :)

I think we should all write him that way from now on! :D

I think we definitely have enough to give us a basis to WRITE Sam with powers, for sure :P

I thought they might be going to go back there, around the time they introduced that psychic girl, Magda, that Ketch murdered :/ But they seem to have forgotten about his powers again... I think they are still there, dormant. LOVE the idea of their coming back <3

Yes, and I want that to be an acknowledged part of canon! Is that so wrong? ;D
