I have to say Amelia was disappointing as a character and story for Sam. She basically served as a push for him to want a normal life and he really didn't need her for that. He wanted a normal life anyway. Sam is like a temporary recruit to the army mainly for the incentives and Dean is like a career soldier immersed in the life. Bottom line the Amelia story arc was just disappointing. I kept waiting for the twist to come and it never did. Ugh
Carla -favourite scene from episode - "when Amelia showed up to see Sam??? She provided happiness and brightness??" What happiness and brightness? He was fixing sinks in a motel! Amelia was rude and nasty to him in the beginning. Most boring romance ever shown on television. Glad her story seems to have ended. It was totally irrelevant to the show, and it dragged on. Her script was ghastly, which didn't help. The episode was the better out of an unsatisfactory S8, and surely an exciting scene was when Crowley discovered the existence of an angel tablet, or when Naomi was shown to have implanted something into Cas. It's SPN, not Days of Our Lives.
IMHO I am hoping never to see Amelia again.....the chemistry just wasn't there....on the other hand I definately hope to see Bennie again.... I am hoping he shows up in the future just in time to save Sam's life..... It would be pleasent to see Sam aknowledge the good in Bennie....
I see their decisions as difficult, but not as 'choosing unhappiness'. I don't think they could be either happy if they had to live a life apart for one another , something that would probbaly happen, seeing how black and white these guys see their lives. I think that's what ckicked in Sam'smind after Dean's visit. Also, let's be honest, I doubt Sam could ever have a honest relationship with Amelia, as she didn't know a thing about Sam. He knew a life with her was meant to be lying about the first 3 decades of his life.
About Dean, I had no doubt he'd choose Sam, but I still wonder why Sam never gave Benny a chance.
I'm really eager to see the next episodes, and how they're gonna work on their relationship. When things are on the floor, they can only go up, right?
I think Benny will definitely be back and Amelia won't. The producers look at fan reaction and for the most part the character of Amelia was a failure and Benny was a success. Plus, there is unfinished business with Benny as to whether or not he stays on the wagon, which I think he won't. I also think that the ending was great in the fact that it was realistic and mature. No one is happy, but in the end they know they need to try to fix yet another monumental problem.
