Supernatural just came to an end today. Well, I can’t call it an end. It was the season finale, but season 11 will be out sometime in October or so, just in time for me to get back to watching the Walking Dead alongside it. 😀
Now, spoiler alert for everyone who hasn’t seen the finale, although I’m pretty much going to be throwing my thoughts out there. So if you’re a fan and you haven’t seen the last episode, don’t read any more. I warned you.
The darkness looks pretty much like a whole bunch of demons escaped hell. Crowley would take care of that, except he’s kind of in a conflict with Cast who’s been enchanted by Rowena to kill Crowley. If I remember correctly…since when has an angel blade do more than annoy Crowley? He’s the king of hell. He can’t be killed with one. That’s been proven in an episode sometime way in the past. My guess is that Castiel can’t kill Crowley and Crowley somehow breaks free of Rowena’s spell and heals Cast…although the spell eats them from the inside out, but being that Cast is an angel and his vessel is human, wouldn’t Cast still be okay, but it would be his vessel that is damaged? So will Cast be wearing a new vessel in Season 11? I have no idea so I will have to wait and see.
Crowley, on the other hand, I thought was supposed to kill Rowena because she tried to kill him. I guess he won’t, simply because he has some humanity in him from Sam pumping him up with human blood.
Sam and Dean somehow survives the darkness which doesn’t make it all that terrifying if they can survive black demon tornado winds which doesn’t seep in through the air and heat vents.
Death, I am surprised, is able to die from his own sickle. I remember Death in Chicago in that one episode eating pizza. Now, he did say that he could be killed, but he’d rather not die so he lent the ring to Dean who then later used it to lock Lucifer back in his cage. There’s something about Death dying that will totally upset the balance, I think. How would the reapers be able to complete their jobs when Death is gone? And seeing as how Death in the Supernatural series is supposedly as old as God or something, it would be an interesting 11th season to come.
Rowena would have a part to play since she now possesses the book of the damned, but in all honesty, if the darkness (that primordial evil force which supposedly existed before God in the series) is set lose, then what does it matter for Rowena to even own the book? Evil is there, in a semi quasi flesh, to speak of. So there’s no point for further use of the book of the damned since the darkness escaped its own prison and is set lose upon the world.
That also brings another question into mind: what happens to the rest of the world? Will the whole world be covered in darkness or just that small spot that seems to be rolling right over Sam and Dean? I feel like we’ll hit more meta stories, and see Chuck, who purportedly is supposed to be God, because he’s the only one that can save Sam and Dean. And is Chuck no longer writing the Supernatural stories whether he has them published or not? Last we saw of Chuck was in the 200th episode of Supernatural, at the end of the play where he picked up the ticket to Marie’s interpretation of Supernatural, a musical. Now, back in the days, shows like Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, would actually have the cast sing during their musical episode. In Supernatural, it was an all girls school which did a pretty wicked rendition of “Carry on my wayward son”, by Kansas, of which I like to listen to at times. The musical was pretty rocking musical. Back to the story though, Chuck could save Sam and Dean. And if he was still writing, couldn’t he have foreseen the events at least a few hours before they happened and called to give Sam and Dean a head’s up?
Adam, John Winchester’s bastard son (thanks, Game of Thrones, for making the word “bastard” popular), is still locked in the cage fighting Lucifer. He made an appearance during the 200th episode, in a way, maybe preparing fans for a big reveal in season 11. I think because Adam was brought back up, even in passing, he may return to the show. And who knows? Maybe the darkness set Lucifer and Adam, who is the vessel for the archangel Michael, free. It’s not too far fetch, because great darkness couldn’t be without Lucifer. Granted, Lucifer was created after the darkness and was corrupted because of the darkness, the darkness is still pretty much in Lucifer in a way, so why not stick all the darkness together? I have a hard time imaging the darkness to be anything less that absolute space: ever expanding and permeating. I do think season 11 might bring us back to Lucifer and Adam/Michael and how that is going on.
The darkness doesn’t seem to include demons or hell, which is why Crowley didn’t get a power boost when the darkness escaped. Crowley and everything else under him isn’t made by the darkness. The darkness is something altogether new that we shall have to wait and see.
I didn’t expect Dean to kill Sam, being controlled by the mark or not. If the shoes were on the other person, I did expect Sam t o kill Dean, only because Sam has been said to be the evil one from the beginning. He was Lucifer’s vessel, the rebellious younger brother, as Gabriel had put it.
And what about Bobby? Bobby makes an appearance now and again, like in the episode, Inside Man, where he lets Cast into heaven, or in the musical episode where he’s being played by a girl who does a good impersonation of his word, “idgit”. I’d like to see John Winchester, old John, but I don’t think we’d be seeing any more of him.
Sam and Dean really has no friends and no family now beyond Cast and Crowley. Regardless of their enthusiasm for wanting to kill Crowley, I don’t think they will because Crowley has always helped them, whether that help was later for Crowley’s own gain. Crowley inherently becomes one of the good guys. Sam and Dean has depended on Crowley a lot and as Dean always said, “blood isn’t family, it’s people who has been there for you and will be there for you” (or something to that extent). That’s Crowley. In the beginning seasons, sure, I can see them killing Crowley, but no, not now. Not even Cast will kill Crowley. He’s kind of become the black sheep of their family, the evil one that no one wants to talk about but still goes to for help because he can help them.
With all of that said, I can’t wait to see season 11!
