After 15 years, Supernatural ends and with an era for a series and a fandom!
It has been 15 years since the debut of Supernatural. Both Sam and Dean Winchester’s journey of you know, saving people, hunting things. The family business.
This week’s two-hour wrap up was both enlightening and heartfelt as the cast and crew expressed their different experiences and details about each character and lore that was able to be explored to levels they couldn’t even fathom. It was interesting hearing how they each even talk about each other’s characters on what that person brought to the story and what roles they played involving pushing the narrative. Who I really wish we had a chance to hear from are Jeffrey Dean Morgan (John Winchester), Richard Speight Jr (Gabriel), and Mark Pellegrino (Lucifer). Mostly Pellegrino since he was active in the recent seasons. But I digress I was satisfied with this special.
Knowing that the last episode “Carry On” was the follow up I did not know what to expect other than to expect that this was going to be a “What Happens to the Boys now?”. And as usual, the boys went back to work on a case and a pie-eating contest. I won't give any more spoilers but the end got dear old Splyke here shedding that tear of a job well done and I will surely miss both actors as they pursue their new roles on other series. Jensen Ackles will be in Season 3 of The Boys and Jarod Padaleckle will be in the reimagined series Walker, which I look forward to watching also.
As a long time fan of the show I am both content and sad that this series has concluded. You can tell the amount of love, passion, and creativity that was poured into each episode for this every Thursday evening fantasy horror flick. Going above and beyond its meta just for fans cause the creators and writers know we love that good stuff. Thank you to the cast and crew for this long road trip of Supernatural. The nerds and nerdettes are satisfied.
