It was also a bit strange to see nearly the entire final hour take place in Sam's head.
On a positive note, Cas having "plans for Crowley" sounds ominous, and Crowley being alive means more Mark Sheppard, which is never a bad thing. But all-in-all, that finale left me feeling largely unfulfilled, like it's part 2 of a 3 parter, instead of a season finale.
Season 7 should be interesting though. Some changed dynamics and a lot of issues left to deal with, from Sam remembering the pit to Dean beating himself up endlessly over Lisa and Ben (and Cas), to seeing how the brothers deal with Cas (and Crowley).
I guess, though, I expected to be blown away a little bit more.
FINALLY finished the season.
I was underwhelmed by the finale, as well. Dark/all-powerful Cas just doesn't seem to fit. The key, I think, is Sam, and what knowledge he retained from the pit (aside from the obvious misery/suffering part). And, when does the original "God" show up? I'm thinking he's going to be a bit miffed about another creature trying to lay claim to the "all-powerful" title. I like that Crowley survived, and what he may bring to the table.
A bit disappointed in the finale, but the show is still better than most others.....
