I did something similar to this with The Walking Dead earlier this month in preparation for The Walking Dead season six premier. So why am I doing it again, especially since Supernatural premiered a couple weeks ago?
I’m doing a Supernatural countdown to celebrate reaching 100 chapters on my SPN fanfiction, “All You Did Was Save My Life”.
This is the longest fanfiction I’ve written thus far and it’s not even close to being done yet. I absolutely love this story and I am so excited to be celebrating 100 chapters.
For the next eleven days I will counting my Top 11 favourite episodes of Supernatural with number one being posted on Wednesday the 28th. The same day Chapter 100 will be going up.
Why eleven days? Because Supernatural is on season eleven of course!
Now, enough explaining, let’s start this countdown with season five, episode four: “The End”.
This episode is both amazing and emotional all at the same time.
In “The End” Dean ends up in the year 2014 where the Croatoan virus has spread and killed a good portion of the population. Some survivors have gathered in a camp with 2014 Dean as their leader. In this future, Castiel has lost his angel powers and is now a hippie of sorts while Sam has been possessed by Lucifer. Past Dean must help Future Dean and the others in their plan to defeat Lucifer.
This episode is amazing because we get to see different sides to the characters. One of the things about Supernatural is that each actor can end up playing a bunch of different characters and it’s a cool experience to see how each actor interprets their new character.
I really have to praise all the actors for playing their future selves because it was amazing how only an episode or so ago they were playing these characters one way and now they have to play them as if four years has passed and they all did phenomenal.
However, I especially have to talk about Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins because their characters were so different! Jensen had to play Past and Future Dean, Jared had to play Sam as Lucifer, and Misha suddenly went from being the most serious and confused angel to a guy without shoes having orgies. What?! And they all pulled it off spectacularly, I can’t even describe in just a few words how amazing they all were.
I said this is episode is emotional which is definitely true (at least I found it to be) because it is exactly what it sounds like, it’s the end. Not of the show, not even close, but it shows what the end of the world and humanity could be like if Dean and Sam didn’t change it.
Sam is Lucifer and he kills Dean, Cas, Chuck, and all the rest and Past Dean is there to see it all happen. And he promises Past Dean that they will always end up there, no matter what happens or what Past Dean and Sam try to do, Lucifer will always win.
This promise seemed pretty creepy and worrying when I first watched the episode, but now going back and watching it again after I know what happens in future episodes it’s so emotional because you know what he said was true! I know his promise didn’t last for long, but still, can the Winchester boys never get a break?
Alright, so I’ve officially kicked off this countdown with a great, yet kind of depressing, episode. #10 will be up tomorrow so many sure to check it out and check out my fanfiction “All You Did Was Save My Life” by clicking on my fanfiction page up at the top! Chapter 100 will be up soon!
