After fifteen years, three hundred twenty-seven episodes and more deaths and resurrections than I can count – Supernatural has ended.
Traditionally, I've ended every season finale with a brief summary but this one is special. Pitched many years ago by Eric Kripke to the WB Network, Supernatural was the back-up plan.
Don't fear the reaper.
As Chuck was the man behind the curtain pulling the strings all along, the plan is in pieces and Jack is a bomb of divine energy waiting to go off. The Winchesters and Castiel are running out of time with no way to contain the destruction when suddenly Billie appears. They explain how the plan was doomed to failure and she is none too pleased.
The end is nigh.
After seeing the signs of his return in the stars, Amara knows that Chuck is back. After arriving at the bunker, she tells Sam and Dean that the time is now. With one final ritual remaining, Jack and Dean hit the road but Sam stays behind.
Every motel has a sad story.
Travis John arrives at Rooster's Sunrise Motel late at night. He's tired, scared and wants to be anywhere else but there. Something deep inside pushes him to carry on and check into room 214. After settling in, he takes a swig of whiskey before something old, dark and violent slinks out of the closet.
The darkness returns.
At Patchwork, a community place or worship, the weary can take shelter within its walls because all are welcome, regardless or circumstance, faith or creed. While walking home from volunteering, Conner hears someone call his name in the alley for help but when moves closer to get a better view, he's attacked and taken.
Stand by for full power.
When more and more mechanical issues start creeping up in the bunker, Dean knows it's time to roll up their sleeves and fix the problem. After going into the boiler room, he and Sam notice that the power is noted to still be in standby mode.
There's always another rift in Supernatural.
After briefly crossing paths with some alternate reality versions of themselves in the armory, the Winchesters get a visit from none other than the head reaper herself, Billy. Step two of her plan is for the team to find a relic called the Occultum.
So God walks into a Radio Shed...
When browsing the latest selection of TVs and home theatre equipment, the sales associate shows Chuck all of the options that he has available. There's so many that Chuck realizes he doesn't need more – he needs less.
How the Winchesters got their groove back.
Desperate to get back to their old selves for the inevitable battle to end all battles with god, the Winchesters are off to Alaska on a quest to get their luck back. Back at the bunker, Castiel gets home but finds nothing but a note from Sam letting him know where they went. Moments later, the bunker gets a phone call.
What is the world without god?
After playing into Chuck's hands, Sam and Eileen find themselves tied to chairs inside a casino. Chuck has them right where he wants them and intends to sever the connection he shares with Sam. To do that, he needs to cut into Sam's wound with a scalpel.
