Let us know your thoughts on this last EVER episode of Supernatural.


I haven't seen it yet, but have read comments on line. So I have an idea.

Come on guys add some comments below and have a good old rant!

What did you like, or didn't?
Was the ending you had dreamed about?
What were you most surprised about?
What were you least surprised about?
Does it leave an opening for a movie or mini series down the line?
Does this mean a death on this show is actually final?
Did this really feel like a finale episode?
Some are saying is was an ending as bad as Lost, do you agree?
Were you happy with 15 years of this show ending, in this way?

Well they stopped showing the final season here a while back but I've been following the show online and watching video clips and reading episode recaps so I can know what happens. I just saw the scene where Sam kills Dean and then dies as an old man with his son by his side.
My thoughts?
That was the OTHER Sam and Dean from the universe that Chuck destroyed on the bridge. They obviously returned from Reno and met up at the bridge. That was NOT Heaven, not by a long shot.

I watched it and the "Looking Back" special that preceded it. So, here's the thing with me that most of you might not agree with: I like to stay in my comfort zone with Supernatural. That is, I usually stay within the first six seasons when I binge watch. I know there are great episodes after S6 (Baby, Fan Fiction, etc) but those first six are so well done that I rarely stray away. So going into last night's series finale all I had to reference it with were those first six seasons and, well, I could see the passion and drive just wasn't there anymore. It looked like a series finale that needed to happen and maybe was a little past overdue. It sorta reminded me of The Office series finale where the actors had long since fleshed out their characters and were just kinda mailing it in.

As far as the overall conclusion to their story, I liked it. I feel like we've all watched them suffer and sacrifice for sooo long that they finally got the ending they deserved. It wasn't over complicated or contrived...just a nice simple ending for the boys. I did have some issues with the execution of the episode though. Dean's death felt too easy considering everything he's been through for 15 years. They just gave up and let him go. Sam's story, on the other hand, was a little more unconvincing. Apparently, he gave up hunting and had a family and grew old. Which is where I run up against it. Sam in a painfully obvious fake grey wig was a little too much. They just didn't put a lot of effort in making that segment more believable.

That being said, it doesn't really matter anyway because it's all about how their story ends. I'm happy with they way they ended it but the truth is Supernatural will always be on for me as long as I have a way to watch.

I was happy with the ending. And yes I cried.

Had a feeling Dean was going to be the first to go and was happy they got to say goodbye to each other. Am not sure that Sam truly left the business as his grown up son had the TAT on his arm. It was either just protecting him for any reprisals or he trained his son to be a hunter.

No I don't agree it was the same as Lost. I watched that show and the ending didn't make any sense as it left to many unanswered questions. Dean and Sam's did. Was kind of hoping to see other souls that would greet Dean but that might not have been able to happen either because of Covid or the availability of the actors.

Was hoping they would show someone taking over the bunker which could have foretold a movie or mini series but they just had Sam turn off the lights. So think it was actually a final. The one surprise I actually loved was the dog and it's one floppy ear. Loved it when Dean was washing the dishes he had the dog lick one of the plates. I did tape it but not sure I'll be able to watch it. So yes I'm happy with the ending.

What did you like, or didn't? I liked the idea of them having the heaven they deserve. I also liked Bobby came back. The rest I didn't like.
Was the ending you had dreamed about? I would have liked had they BOTH gone old blaze of glory style
What were you most/least surprised about? Nothing surprised me really. Well aside from the make up departments horrible attempt at aging Jared
Does it leave an opening for a movie or mini series down the line? Not really, and after that I don't want one.
Does this mean a death on this show is actually final? Yes
Did this really feel like a finale episode? yes. Not a good one, but yes.
Some are saying is was an ending as bad as Lost, do you agree? Lost I feel can never be surpassed as the worst ending. It was bad, but Lost was worse.
Were you happy with 15 years of this show ending, in this way? No.

It wasn't that the ending was bad, it was how it was made. ESPECIALLY that sappy version of Carry On My Wayward son in the end.

I had no issue with the ending other than the shitty looking back crap before it, not only did it mess up the mood for the real last episode, but they pissed away most of season 15 on what was already an extended looking back so what the fuck was the point?

reply

The show was amazing in the first few seasons. Right after angels showed up, it turned into garbage. Then it got better, then worse, then better, but never as great as the early seasons. It has been a long ride. They got away from the serious nature of the early seasons, which was unfortunate. The ending was alright, but borrowed WAY too much from the ending of Six Feet Under.

I liked the conclusion but the episode itself went by fast.It had no real story to it.Essentially the entire episode is watching how Sam and Dean die.It was a good emotional send off for the characters but a little meat to the story surrounding it would have been nice.I know the show started with the brothers and should end with them but the extended family they created over 15 years such as Castiel and Jack were missed.At least we got to see Bobby again.
