Eric Kripke is the creator of the American dark fantasy television series, Supernatural. It premiered on The WB on September 13, 2005, and was later picked up by its successor,
The CW. Featuring Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester and Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, the show follows the Winchester brothers as they go on the prowl for supernatural creatures.
Warner Bros. Television and Wonderland Sound and Vision produced the series. In addition to Kripke, executive producers for the film include McG, Robert Singer, Phil Sgriccia and Adam Glass.
During the fourth season’s filming, former executive producer and director Kim Manners passed away from lung cancer.
The Meaning of The Supernatural Finale: Keep Going, Wayward Son!
Since Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) first started saving people and chasing monsters in their ’67 Chevy Impala, it has been fifteen years since their adventures began.
They slayed vampires and werewolves, fought Lucifer, and faced up against God himself in a titanic struggle for survival. The long-running series finally ended in late 2020, bringing a stop to Sam and Dean’s adventure after what seemed like a lifetime.
For a program that has been killing off its key characters year after year, the “Supernatural” finale really knew how to drown us in tears. I don’t know if I liked it or not. As though this were the end of an era, it was this time.
In Other Words, How Did Supernatural Come to A Close?
The conclusion jumps ahead five years, and we find Sam and Dean going about their daily routines (or adapting to it). It appears that Dean and Miracle, the dog he found earlier, are doing well together.
Season 15 would have been incomplete if the Winchesters hadn’t been involved in yet another intriguing case, and so they are. One of their father’s old cases from the 1980s comes to light when the Winchester brothers investigate a peculiar murder and kidnapping involving masked vampires.
Dean and Sam are able to locate the vampire nest thanks to a pattern set by their father John. While hunting, they come across a group of vampires and discover that one of them is Jenny, a vampire they met on their first hunt 19 years prior!
Dean is stabbed on a metal spike by one of the vampires, but the Winchesters manage to kill them all. Dean and Sam share an emotional farewell, during which Dean expresses his admiration for his younger brother.
Sam, meanwhile, continues to live out his days in a new and improved heaven while Dean finds a new place to call home. After hearing the song “Carry On Wayward Son,” we see Sam and Dean reunited in heaven. In the end, the brothers’ trip came to a close on a bridge, completing the story’s arc.
How Did Dean End up Here?
In a matter of seconds, it had already happened. Before Sam could intervene, Dean was slammed into a wooden beam as he fought a large, burly vampire. A few seconds later would have been ideal. Dean’s body was immobilized after the vamp had been killed. Literally.
Dean begged Sam to stay with him while he was impaled on some projecting rebar. After 15 seasons, Dean has been brought back to life numerous times. He requested Sam to let him leave this time.
Dean, not Chuck, was the one who made this decision, so it’s important to acknowledge that. He had envisioned this as the way he wanted to conclude his story.
And so started the emotional farewell that we had foreseen but had never expected to arrive. Dean confided in Sam that the show has always been about him, concluding that the younger Winchester sibling is the heart of the series for the first time.
It was Sam’s way of giving Dean permission to let go and eventually have Sam move into his own solo power that allowed Dean to die.
