Happy Friday TV fans! After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 1 season premiere, I realized that we’re coming to the end of the road for the Winchester brothers, but how will it all end? I mean, “What’s one more apocalypse, right?” Will Sam and Dean drive off into the sunset together or is there one final battle still coming? I can’t wait to find out! Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.
In last night’s episode, “Back and to the Future,” Sam, Dean, and Castiel face off against an overwhelmingly large group of the undead. The souls of hell have been freed and they are looking to inhabit the nearest bodies, but some of them seem to be pickier than others. Meanwhile, Sam and Dean are forced to work with a demon, as some familiar ghosts begin to wreak havoc in town. My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 1 season premiere are:
“Welcome to the end…what did that mean?”
An excellent question for sure, as we start off the season premiere exactly where we left off. Chuck/God is out and he leaves the Winchester brothers and Castiel to fight off the undead. Our favorite heroes are outnumbered for sure, but they are able to get to a nearby mausoleum, barricading the door. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they are out of the woods just yet though…
“It’s not Jack…”
For all of you Jack fans (me included), fear not! Even though Jack appears to be gone, a demon decides to set up shop in his body and even sports some nice new shades since Jack’s eyes were burned right out of him. Castiel is beyond upset and wants him to get out of Jack as quickly as possible, but the demon offers to help the Winchesters out, claiming that he likes hell the way it is.
While I’m not sure that he can be trusted, they hilariously refer to him as “Crowley Junior” and Jack’s got a new attitude, but it’s probably only a matter of time before he turns on Castiel and the Winchester brothers.
“If she’s back, then they’re all back…”
Sam and Dean run into quite a few familiar faces…only they’re ghosts and it looks like a lot of this season may involve them trying to eliminate past foes that they killed previously. A lot of these spirits will most likely have vengeance on their minds, but some of them just want to have fun, tormenting several people in town, which forces Sam and Dean to get creative about evacuating everyone.
This is only going to last for a little while; however, so they better come up with something else fast even though the demon’s spell seems to work for now, creating some kind of barrier, trapping the spirits where they are. Either way, I thought this was a fun and clever way to allow fans the chance to see the Winchesters face some of the more popular villains again and I can’t wait to see who else shows up!
“Did you fix it?”
As a reminder, a bullet did hit Sam in the fight against Chuck/God during the season 14 finale, but it looks like there is something strange going on with the wound. It has no exit and Castiel tries to heal him, but explains that there is some kind of energy he has never felt before surrounding it. What exactly does this mean for Sam’s fate? We’ll have to wait and see, but I’m hoping that they can figure out a way to heal him soon. We need you, Sam!
“You and me vs. every soul in hell. I like those odds.”
Toward the end of the episode, Dean feels frustrated and asks Sam what it all meant, feeling almost like a rat trapped in Chuck’s maze. Sam reminds him that they saved so many people and that it did matter. Dean doesn’t seem completely convinced, but Sam also explains that Chuck/God is gone and that “it’s just us.”
After they figure out everything and stop the newest apocalypse, they are basically free. Dean is on board and they say that they have work to do, but it will definitely be interesting to see where their last journey leads them.
Will the Winchesters be able to earn true freedom or is this the end of the road for them? It will be a bitter sweet ending for sure and I’m not sure that I’m ready to say goodbye just yet, but I’m looking forward to exploring the road ahead and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Stay tuned SPN family!

In spite of the frustration I felt when I first watched Angel’s series finale, I’ve since come to embrace how fitting it was. So there’s a part of me that feels like that’s how the Winchesters should go out. Ideally, though, I’d like to see them driving off into the sunset, heading off to whatever their next job is. It would be a nice payoff to know that things have finally stopped escalating for them year after year. As the series ends, we’re just left knowing that they’re gonna keep fighting the good fight… but it’s back to being the run-of-the-mill fight that they used to experience back when their dad was still in the driver’s seat. I guess that’s how I’d do it, anyway. Whatever the case, I look forward to seeing how it’ll all turn out.
Great point!!!! I’m curious to see what they do but yeah an Angel like ending wouldn’t be a bad idea!
