Plus with Jared and Jensen being at the Upfronts earlier this week and at Asylum, they dropped a few hints for this next episode.
SUPERNATURAL’s @jarpad says finale has “the best last 5 seconds” of any season to date. Does it change the landscape? “Oh God, yes!” He also said “Something happens in the finale that is a first we’ll see,”
From Just Jared
Jared told JJ on the carpet. “I’d say don’t miss the last 30 seconds of the finale.
Misha told us, “I can say that the fans are going to freak out. I think it’s very chilling and disturbing. When I read the script for the finale, I was definitely shocked. I thought, ‘Can they do this?’
The last five seconds!” “I’m going to one up [Jared and Misha] and say its the last second,” Jensen said. “The moment the screen goes to black. The last second. There are multiple characters involved. There’s a predicament now.”
So what will happen? Theories abound. With the Mark of Cain, the Cain/Abel theme and Sam’s declaration earlier this this season that there are things he won’t do to save Dean, is one or both of the brothers in danger of dying. will Dean kill Sam? Will Sam kill Dean to save him from becoming something demonic like a Knight of Hell? Although it is true we have never had one brother kill the other, Sam and Dean have both died before so killing one of them doesn’t seem that shocking. Will the Mark of Cain turn Dean into a living demon? Dean was on the road to demonhood after season three, but he never went totally demonic, so that would be new. Will Sam pull Dean back from the edge? I really hope so, because I personally want Sam to get a win, but I have a feeling that Dean may not be saved this season.
Then there are the seemingly unending angel wars. Heaven has been under siege since season six and was involved in trying to bring about the Apocalypse in seasons four and five. Will we finally see the heavenly wars come to an end? Will Metatron be defeated? We know Misha is coming back next year, presumably as Cas. Will Cas lose his angelic powers again? If he does, how long until he regains them, again. Will he be part of reopening heaven? If so will he end up being barred from heaven because of his actions during this war? I mean, personally, I think slaughtering half of your family on a power trip would mean the rest of your family would never trust you again, but the angels keep taking him back, so why would stealing grace be worse than what Cas has done before?
There is also the battle for the control of Hell. Will Crowley simply waltz back in as King, now that Abaddon is dead? Will Dean be a contender for the throne of Hell because of the Mark of Cain? Will the demons throw up their hands and vote Sam in as King because they don’t like either Crowley or Dean?
I honestly don’t have a good feeling for how this is going to end. I’d love to hear other theories while we wait for the answers. The one thing I do know is our Wayward Sons will continue to Carry On.
