"Do every act of your life as though it were the very last act of your life.― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

How nice was it to come back after a LONG Hellatus and watch "Last Holiday", the episode of warmth and pending goodbyes?  And what an hour it was! It was lovely to see Sam, Dean and Jack celebrate the holidays and have fun. I think that was the best thing. Mrs. Butters, in the end, was not that bad either. She just wanted to protect her family (but in the wrong way). That was truly the last holiday we'd spend with Supernatural, so I found the above quote to be quite accurate. Now that the end has arrived, we can be grateful for Supernatural as we celebrate Thanksgiving!

Do you have a favorite teacher?  On the other hand, do you still remember a nightmare teacher, someone who crushed your spirit or treated you unfairly?  Teachers influence us all, for good or bad, and most of us have strong feelings about those who taught us.  Supernatural addressed this topic in the episode "After School Special."    

"After School Special" (4.13), which was primarily set in a high school in 2009, also gave us a look at the Winchesters' high school days back in 1997.  Upon realizing that, I was prepared to see the common characterization of an inflexible, petty, dictatorial teacher who tyrannizes and belittles students.  Instead, I found a compelling glimpse of an unsung hero - Mr. Wyatt.  Though the scenes with him were short, Mr. Wyatt demonstrated several attributes of a good teacher, and, in so doing, he provided Sam with life-changing inspiration.  If we consider why Mr. Wyatt had such a lasting impact on Sam, perhaps this model teacher's lessons can extend beyond his Supernatural classroom. 

Episodes 10 & 11 of Supernatural's season 15 have raised this question. What is a true hero? What does a true hero do? What defines them? Is it having heroes’ luck? Or is it more? 

In Supernatural 15.08, “Our Father Who Aren’t in Heaven,” Sam once again had to bravely face the massive trauma he suffered in The Cage. Though he never faltered, you could tell... it must have been hard on him.

"Everything has to come to an end, sometime.” ― L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land of Oz

This is it. The l**t first episode and season premiere. I have been feeling a lot of mixed emotions about the ending (easy word to connect to the article, isn't it?). I'm happy because of a few things but mostly I have been feeling sad. Denial is the key for me, or pretending nothing is happening. Of course, when the season starts, the finality of everything comes crushing in. I guess I have decided to enjoy the few episodes we still have left, to end things on a high note myself. Watching Supernatural and what has come from it - everything I have experienced - leaves me with many great memories - even these few articles I will still write about the show. 

What a long strange trip it has been. 

Enjoy the videos!
"You can fire me if you want, but sooner or later he's gonna come back home. And you know how he is with that whole wrath thing..” ― Joshua to Zachariah

Well, that season ender was a killer, wasn't it? As usual, some fans liked it and some didn't. There were also many who did not like the Chuck twist at all, but was it really a twist? Rob Benedict is a sweetheart, there is no doubt about it, but some might mix up the character with the actor, or their view as their God might get in the way. I mean, who would not want God to be the good guy? Except that this is Supernatural. Every Supernatural being in the series has been bad in general. They might have turned into an enemy later but general consensus is that supernatural things are bad. That also means Chuck.
"Sometimes in life, you're not always given a second chance, but if you do, take advantage of it, and go out with a bang! ― Aquaria

This episode had many second chances to their characters. Sam already had one when he was brought back by Lucifer. This time he had decided Lucifer would not be captured but go down one way or the other.The AU people with Bobby and Charlie got their second chance on life when Sam and Dean chose to bring them to their world. Mary also wanted to have a second chance with the people she met in AU world and she wanted to stay to help them. Even Lucifer got a second chance with his son, even though that was a mirage. Unfortunately Gabriel got his second chance to be the good guy but he died because of that. He wanted to help Sam and Dean so he put his life on the line to save them.

EPISODE TWENTY-THREE:

The finale episode, beginning in season seven, episode twenty-three is the big bang and the shocking reveal all while lining up a whole new set of problems – much like episode twenty-two. Really, if there is one thing Supernatural knows how to do, it’s a finale episode.

"The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection ― Thomas Paine

Round and round we go, where we stop, nobody knows! Sam and Lucifer have played quite the cat and mouse game for many years. You could say Lucifer is Sam's ultimate nemesis. In reflection of this and the videos, that is my topic for today. In a way Sam sees Lucifer as his reflection that he can't escape - always in Sam's mind, and present, like his own reflection on the surface of disturbed water. As a trivia bit of information, I have listed every episode in which Sam has died. It is always "funny" to think we have a show where even the main character has died multiple times.
