The only thing that's really bugged me about the show of late is that I think last season and the start of this season, they over-played the "let's end the show with a Sam/Dean brother pity party" card.
I am interested in seeing just how far they take the brother-antagonism, though. Having it set up so that Dean is the vessel for the arch-angel and Sam, supposidly, is the vessel for satan does set up some interesting senarios: will they take it to an actual battle between the two, or will the two fight and resist to the end and still come out victorious. (or, I guess the third option: the world ends in a giant fireball...)
