The seventh season of “Supernatural” is coming to an end but the heated argument about how successful the year has been will last until the Fall. Coming off a season focused on monsters, angels, and Purgatory, season seven sought to give Sam and Dean Winchester a single group of Big Bads in the form of the Leviathan. But these aren’t your everyday villains: they’ve infiltrated the highest positions of power and are gunning for the Winchesters – who are struggling to find a way to fight back. One of the biggest subplots this season has focused on isolating the brothers, cutting them off from the lifelines they’ve relied on for seven years, and this move has gotten the fans up-in-arms about whether it was the best decision.
But the question lurking in the back of my mind is: in a show that is - and has always been - about two brothers, does anyone else matter?
