Ty Olsson (Benny) interview - spoilers

I seriously wonder what happened to the "not a nice guy"!Benny we were told about at the beginning of the season. That sounded interesting, but this sounds like your typical woobie!vampire struggling-to-live-in-a-world-of-humans character that's so popular these days.

I do like the spoilers, but yeah, that doesn't sound not-nice and threatening to me.

SPN likes to make fun of Twilight and they haven't noticed that now Benny is Edward Cullen a woobie. At least Jacob turns into a real werewolf and

Sounds like Sam will, indeed, be wrong not to trust Benny, and Benny, by contrast, will be the nice guy who doesn't want to come between Sam and Dean.

Seriously, are they doing anything at all this season that isn't designed to make Sam look bad by contrast to everyone else in Dean's life? And why do they think we want to spend large tracts of time exploring Benny involved in his own affairs rather than intersecting with Sam and Dean?

God damn this season.

I'm pretty sure things aren't as bad as you think they are.








God, not even I believe that.

well, Benny help Dean out of purgatory, what DID Sam do?

oh right! nothing!

OP

Just to expand what I meant -- I find the idea of Dean, Killer of All Things Evil, being caught between his loyalty to the guy who helped him survive in and escape Purgatory (with them both doing terrible things while there to make that possible) and that topside the guy seems really close the edge of unhinged and potentially threatening, though he hasn't actually hurt anyone (human at least) that Dean knows about, a more interesting internal conflict for Dean than him simply helping out a Lenore 2.0. This doesn't sound like a bad guy, so why is Dean even lying to Sam about him? Sam was all aboard the Save Lenore train, and he'd probably be even more willing to help out the guy who helped save his brother (or so I'd think).

Did you rally expect Dean to have made a bad choice in trusting a vamp? Will never happen. I called it right away.

Benny is going to be the bestest, most righteous vamp ever. It's Sam who befriends the evil ones. Amelia will probably turn out to have been possessed at some point before Dean offs her.

So Carver just transferred Being Human's Aidan onto SPN? Nice. Bobby can come back and be Sally and werewolf girl from 8.04 can come back as a major player and be Josh.

I never thought I'd have to worry about sitting through this vampire trope when it came to SPN.

If we have to do the monster that overcomes it's impulses and instincts to be a special best buddy and ally, why couldn't we have done this with Madison? WHY?!

Re: Ty Olsson (Benny) interview - spoilers

At this point I'm just wondering what relevancy Benny will have to the greater mytharc. From what Ty has to say it seems like there is none (up to 8.10?) that he knows of yet.

Re: Ty Olsson (Benny) interview - spoilers

Of course. Dean's arc was one of the few things I was going to be able to enjoy about the season from what we've heard. But if it's populated by another mopey, tedious supernatural being a'la the angels (plus, there's going to be so much more actual angel stuff on top of it, joy) and some faux-brother triangle between Dean, Castiel, and Benny while Sam sucks out loud, then...there goes any shred of good times for me.

I can't even begin to tell you, meme, how many fucks I do not give about Benny and his vampire mainpain and his ~issues~ and his ~struggles~.

I don't find the actor engaging. The vampire-struggles-to-integrate-into-society storyline is so fucking overdone. I don't think we need another white dude on this show. I don't care about PTSD unless it's Sam's or Dean's. I don't like the idea that Sam will be made to look like a dick yet again for not trusting Benny. I hate his stupid name. I wish he was Lenore or Madison instead. I am SO FUCKING TIRED OF FUCKING VAMPIRES.

/end rant.
