Now that nearly every show that I enjoy has aired their respective season finales, I must admit that Supernatural‘s had the most profound effect on me. Boasting one of the series’ best cliffhangers to date, “Moriah” saw God/Chuck revealed as the ultimate villain, as he’s quite literally bringing about the apocalypse. Sam and Dean Winchester may have averted such things before, sure, but the sh!t’s never hit the fan to this degree.
After traveling on “The Road So Far” for 14 seasons, some folks may wonder how the Winchesters’ final stop may differ from other offerings. If what was stated above doesn’t convince you, know that every soul has been freed from Hell and the dead now walk the Earth. And if that weren’t enough, every threat the boys had previously put down is now back in play – even those dating as far back as the Woman in White and Bloody Mary.
Painting a better picture of what’s to come is this official synopsis released at The CW’s fall upfronts:
“The epic journey of the Winchester brothers come to a close as Supernatural enters its final season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have battled demons and angels, mythical creatures and monsters, in a seemingly unending quest to save the world. But in the final battle of the show’s 14th season, they face off against God Himself (Rob Benedict), refusing to kill their surrogate nephilim son Jack (Alexander Calvert), and thus bringing about God’s decision to end this reality once and for all… Supernatural is from Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Robert Singer (Midnight Caller), Andrew Dabb, Robert Berens (The Ringer) and Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman).”
Never would I ever have thought for Chuck to become the big bad, but I have to tip my hat to showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer for going in an unexpected direction. I have a feeling that everything will have come full circle when we’re talking about this a year from now, so let’s hope most fans are satisfied by the ending.
Supernatural returns for its fifteenth and final season on Thursday nights this fall on The CW. But if you’d like to relive season 14, make a note of how encore presentations begin on Sunday nights as of May 26th.
