SPN thoughts

I am still uncertain about how I feel about Smallville getting a 9th season, but I am super-excited that Supernatural got the early renewal as well, because it makes it (somewhat) less likely that Kripke will kill off both Sam and Dean in a grisly apocalyptic standoff this season. Next season, maybe, but probably not this season.

And speaking of speculation about the future, I have a question. It *is* slightly spoilery--specifically, it's based on a spoiler Ausiello gave about the source of Sam's powers, but it's not spoilery beyond that, only speculative, and I'd ask people not to spoil me beyond that specific spoiler:

So Ausiello said something about Sam getting addicted to demon blood. And most of the people I've seen talking about this are assuming that means Sam is drinking Ruby's blood. I guess there's some precedence for that, since Azazel fed Sam his blood to infect him in the first place.

But isn't there a serious logical problem with that? It's not really demon blood, since the demon (in both cases, presumably) is possessing a human host, right? If mere possession turns human blood into demon blood, doesn't that mean that anyone who's ever been possessed by a demon and lived has demon blood, and thus theoretically access to the same powers Sam has? (Of course, that might explain precisely why the angels don't seem to give a damn about saving the life of the humans demons are possessing, if they all potentially have access to dangerous powers, and make Sam's quest to save the possessed even more dangerous). What do people think about this? Does mere possession tranform the blood? And if it does, why don't all formerly possessed people have demon blood?

As for the demon blood that Sam got infected with in the first place, I'd always just assumed - and I could be *way* off - that either Azazel was powerful enough to actually manifest in human form

That's pretty much what I thought, too, but most of the speculation surrounding the "demon blood addiction" seems to center around Sam drinking Ruby's blood. I guess we'll know for sure eventually.

I thought the "addicted to demon blood" was just a metaphor and that it was meant to be taken as more of a sexual connotation - that he was getting addicted to being with Ruby and giving in to his darker side.

I initially thought that, too, but an awful lot of people discussing that spoiler seem to think he's literally drinking Ruby's blood.
