 The whole "rogue reaper" thing makes no sense; their sole reason for existence is to transport the dead to wherever they're going.  

Of course, the show started with reapers looking like Pruneface from Dick Tracy, so they've been playing fast and loose with continuity for a while now and between being afterlife coyotes and now bounty hunters, it looks like reapers have become the go to guys for "we need a supernatural creature to do X" scenarios.

 I disagree to an extent, fenn...at least in this instance.  People can ward against demons and people can ward against angels...aside from demon deals, angel rescues or back woods doctors doing Frankenstein-like medical procedures to themselves, death is pretty much universal and final.  However, a ROGUE reaper was a bit of a stretch for me also...but it was something that hadn't been done before, at the very least.  As for the appearance of reapers, I don't feel the fast and loose that you talk about.  It was established at the very beginning of the second season that reapers can change their appearance and look like anybody.  Might that explain why so many near death experiencers report seeing past loved ones when they die?  That reaper told Dean that manipulating their appearance often helps the transition go more smoothly.  The reaper in season 1 was being controlled by an external force - I doubt the reaper was caring about appearance when it was being forced to hunt people down.

That has to be the most messed up thing Dean has ever done, telling Cas he has to leave after all he has been thru and after Dean told him to come to the bunker. The look on Castiel's face was heartbreaking. All the guy wanted was to enjoy his burrito.

 Actually rogue reapers were covered last season during the trials.  When Sam had to go into hell they had a Reaper take him.  That one got killed. But it's nothing that new.

 Good call, Bryzarro...I forgot about that.

I wish they would do more to establish exactly how Sam and Dean have the ability to buy things.  Fake credit cards alone simply cannot do the job.  They should be scrambling as much as Castiel does.  The electricity/water for their bunker isn't coming free, either; municipal utlities are not likely to overlook that.  It's also a little disconcerting that they operate out in the open as much as they do after their Leviathon doubles went on a killing spree.  Cops aren't likely to forget that.

I'll confess that these are probably deemed as lame criticisms by most, and it's overall still an outstanding show, but they still bother me.  I'll go back to my basement, now.

 Heh.  When I was getting back into the series I asked a friend if they eventually got real jobs or something.  Which, it seems, they don't.  I agree.  It's one of those "hand waving' things about the show.  Like how they allude back in season 3 or 4 that Sam should be able to use his "demon blood" abilities even without the need for feeding on blood.  They totally dropped that. 

I imagine a secret bunker like that has something worked out so that it is "covered" when it comes to utilities.  SOmething the order setup.  Also, it kinda looks like a dam, so maybe hydroelectric? Or Supernatural...

Well if we're going to nitpick, how about a universe where literally every male with dropped testicles (I'm looking at you Kevin) speaks with a 20-year whiskey voice.
