Supernatural 5x22  

    I guess that's where this story begins. And here is where it ends.

    Way to say goodbye, Kripke, you evil genius. I remember, pretty early on he talked about having a five-year plan and how he likes to give a beginning, a middle and an end to a story. And he delivered. Although they found a somewhat open ending that'll leave me to agonize over how the story will continue, I feel sated and pleased with how this part of the myth arc was wrapped up.

    It's the little things in particular, that made me alternate between joy and tears. The simple emphasis on family. The toy soldier, the legos, THE CARVED INITIALS, the dated tape deck, the classic rock, the hustling pool, the Ozzy concerts, the stargazing - the freedom and choice of each other's company. It's funny how they make demons, the devil - hell the apocalypse - seem unimportant in comparison to that freedom.

    And let's not forget her. If any object ever deserved a gender assignment and a name, it's the Metallicar. Now I just hope I won't have to see Dean drive around with it with a gaping hole where Sam used to sit.

    While it took me a second to get into the narrative, it really made the big surprise at the end go off with an even bigger bang. The prophet Chuck is really just God in bathrobes disguise? I kind of like that.

    Assuming it was all Sam and no Lucifer or the like in that very last scene, I do get why Sam would give Dean that shot at a normal, apple pie life but is it really what Dean wants? I honestly don't think Dean's ever going to be able to live a truly happy life thinking his brother's burning in the pit. I totally see him looking for ways to get Sam back, and even if it's only so much as a thought in the back of his mind.

    However, I am looking forward to seeing what lives they'd lead if they stayed apart. But what I'm really excited for is the reunion. Think of the possibilities. *bounces* Yes, I need season 6 like yesterday.

    As for Lucifer, I'm kind of sad to see him go. They made him to think so big yet with a naively twisted vulnerability to everybody family. He goes berserk when Cas molotoved his brother but is about to kill him by his own hand.

    This episode also made me sob and cry like a real champ. I think it was Dean's it's okay, I'm here. I'm not going to leave you speech followed by that muted fast-cut sequence that finally did me in. Right under my skin. Brilliance on their part certainly was the choice for no music except for that howling wind. It really made time freeze and brace you for that storm that is sure to follow the silence. Nice.

For me this even beat the season one finale, and that's saying something. Gosh, I love this show. Now for the summer hiatus? I'm in denial. Thank Chuck for fanfiction which will most likely be the only thing that's going to keep me sane till fall.

I loved like every single little moment of it and it felt like a film in it's EPICNESS.

It did feel like so much more than a 45-min episode, that's for sure. Gosh, I can't wait for season 6.

*laughs* Thank CHUCK for fanfiction. I'm gonna start saying that now.


I couldn't have put it better if i tried.

I'm really sad to see it end but i can't wait to for season 6.. i wonder if they're gonna skip some time?

I bet they are cause it can't just pick up from there. we have to see what Dean has been thru and if that is Sam, what he's been doing on his own but i don't think he'll be alone cause Bobby tends to keep his ear to the ground so he'll most likely find him first if not Dean :D

I love that Bobby is so their dad now cause they care so much about him.. Dean.. Sam.

I cried and i was sad to see Sam just standing there until i thought about it.. Sam is like the big brother now.. he sacrificed himself for Dean to be normal.. or to have a chance at him and CHUCK, did you notice how much he's grown as an actor? It impresses me every time i watch it.

Those two boys have grown so much over the last 5 seasons and it's just amazing to see them play off eachother so naturally.

Also, Dean getting beat to hell and SAM Evil.. It was epic :D

I so have to watch it again to see the magic.

Also, Cas making that face when he's all "Oh, you want me to lie" *laughs* OM CHUCk Too cute :D

I think i should stop rambling now.. sorry :D

Haha, I like!

Since Chuck said something about that it would be a long time until Dean and Bobby see each other again, I assume they are going to skip some time. I do like that idea, though. It's going to make the reunion so much harder since all of them will have moved on with their lives. At least more than if they met again a week after all this.

Bobby sure has been their surrogate father. And I absolutely adore how, despite the old age when it comes to the hunter's world, he's got the boys' backs.

Those two boys have grown so much over the last 5 seasons and it's just amazing to see them play off eachother so naturally.

You mean Chuck or Rob has grown as an actor? Because they both acted. Anyway, I think it goes for the both of them ^^

Is it fall yet?

Wow! Very coherent thoughts!
I agree with all of what you've said, though I'm still numb.

I still don't think Chuck is God as in the show's universe's god, the one Castiel was searching for. I think he is the author of the story, which basically means Kripke. So, a god in a way because the whole universe is his creation but a god outside of this universe.

I'm very happy that, despite season 6, Kripke gave us a closure and I think you can really decide for yourself if you want the story to end there - or leave it there, because like Chuck/Kripke said: Nothing ever really ends - or if you want to start a new chapter.

I think it's pretty clear that Chuck stood in for Kripke - the storyteller who's initial story ends here and who the fans repeatedly called God ;P. It is very possible that the vanishing act at the end simply tried to say, his (Chuck/Kripke) job's done and that why he's leaving. However, I like the idea that Chuck was also God in the show's sense. Several small things hint that way, too. There's the Misstress Magda (Maria Magdalena?) thing, the fact that Chuck wrote the story (he moved the pieces on the chess board as everything he did write down came true). And I do like the idea that God would chose to live among the humans like Chuck did. Talk about making fun of yourself. Also, as Chuck, he did help them save the world. But then again, didn't Death say something about reaping God? I think you can't really know for sure which keeps up the suspense if you ask me. But maybe it's all just a number of plot holes leaving many possible interpretations open. It's what Chuck said in the end, that there's always going to be mistakes and maybe it also means that it's not all that important. What's life without mysteries, eh?

I saw someone call this the end and season 6 the epilogue. I kind of like that.

I'm thinking that maybe they deliberately left the whole thing with Chuck open. After all, it's a very delicate topic they are dealing with, religion, faith. And this way, everyone can make up their own mind, interpret it the way it fits for them

I think I'm going to decide on season 6 when I've seen it. Right now I basically look at it as a new show. But that might change. Epilogue sounds like a possibility.

I'm in denial as well. I feel kind of like a chicken with it's head cut off. I don't know what to do or what to expect at all. Every season they had somewhere to go from here and now? I don't know. I loved this but it's going to be a long long summer and I will take any spoilers or interviews about season six that I can get.
