Missed chances

seeing as how we're nearly at the endgame here, i doubt there's gonna be more small stories where the boys hunt down an evil clown that turns out to be a doll that happened to be made from a witch-doctors tombstone. i was wondering, that being the case, were there any one episode villains, plots, or spooky events that haven't happened yet that you were hoping to get on air before the apocalyptic shit hit the fan?


a few of my own:

-> "thing that goes bump in night" meats bigger "thing that goes bump" (like a really cocky ghost comes across a daemon by accident)

-> Sphinx (or some other riddle based mythical creature)

-> temperamental tools (something powerful like the colt, but picky on its user ... like excalibur and arthur, except, you know, modern)

-> re-occurring rivals (not ghost facers, but other hunters .... ones that aren't bobby, and don't die and don't become evil)

-> a neutral powerhouse (an entity with no preference on how things turn out, but is ridiculously powerful none the less. kinda like the trickster demigod guy, but much less excited about his own awesomeness)

-> 'government' hunters (i mean common, thousands of years of civilization and no-one in the history of politics noticed ghosts were real?)

death couldn't use its own powers as it saw fit. its a power house all right, but its not neutral, its got a job, rules, and restrictions on what it could do. i liked the trickster guy because he seemed to do whatever he felt like. i wanted to see another character like him (like a ancient god or something) that the angels and the daemons try to recruit, but he cant be bothered with the whole end of the world thing. the story in my head is like "one of the billion seals on satan, now useless with satan free, happens to be a conscious entity that now no longer had a purpose; and happens to know where god is, so cas sends dean to try and convince him to tell them... but so do the daemons" or something like that.

I don't think you could get "nuetral powerhouse" better than the trickster. Anybody has to care about something to be even remotely interesting so caring about his own ego (if you want to call it that) is perfectly fine by me. I could see the trickster shows up and tells them he knows where God is (but does he really?). It would be awesome to see cass and dean try to convince him to tell (especially if he was just joking around the whole time).
A sphinx would be very interesting. now that u mention it, I wish they included it at some point.
I think that if someone isnt evil, they aren't really rivals. also, what about Jo and her mom as recurring hunters (im sure we are going to see more of them later on).
Government hunters, tempermental tools, etc. could all still happen. Couldn't there be a gov agency that has been operating behind the scenes the whole time? Maybe Bobby's the leader?

well yea, in light of the whole endgame thing, rivals would be kinda silly, but thats what i meant by missed chances, things that should have happened already or little things that cant happen now. but yea, i keep forgetting about Jo and her mom. i was thrown last season on whether or not she quit the lifestyle. in that case i think they should do more with them, and i in-fact liked them in the War episode (incidentally, wouldn't 'pestilence' be the daemon croatian? it is a form of pestilence).
and while its entirely possible for there to be government hunters that sam, dean, bobby, and john never encountered, there is no way bobby is anything other then the hunter family friend of the winchesters. common, all the times hes been messed up, if he had any form of back up, he would have called it in. least thats my thinkn'. truthfully i had high hopes for the FBI agent, that got locked in sharif department with the boys during the daemon raid, starting a fringe government organization with the purpose of hunting, but then lillith blew him up.
