Have to catch up Supernatural? Read our review of last week's penultimate episode here.
The previous road has come to a devastating end: Supernatural ended its 15-season run on Thursday with a series finale in which Dean died during a hunt and said goodbye early to his long-life brother Sammy.
The episode begins with a leisurely, ordinary morning with breakfast, jogging, making beds, doing laundry, and cleaning guns for Dean and Sam. (The dog is there too!) Sam can't find anything strange over the wire, but Dean has something: Pie Fest! It's his fate, he says excitedly as they trigger the event. However, his brother has a "sad Samface", notes Dean. Sam admits that he thinks of Cas and Jack and wishes they could be with them.
"I think about her too," replies Dean. "This pain won't go away. But if we don't go on living, all this sacrifice will be in vain. So stop being a damn Eeyore." With that, Dean begins digging cakes in his big box and Sam pushes one of the pieces in Dean's face which makes him feel better.
Shortly thereafter, Dean and Sam finally find a case: men in skull masks have kidnapped a father, torn out his wife's tongue and taken their children with them. The agents Kripke and Singer (nice!) Appear on site and immediately recognize the drawing of the suspect from John's diary. Dean and Sam track down the vampires in their nest and shoot one of them with a bullet soaked in blood from the dead. After that, the man admits that every few years they kidnap children for a harvest. After Dean beheads some of the bad guys, he recognizes their leader as Jenny from an early episode.
They successfully defeat Jenny and her group, but during the fight something pierces Dean's back and leaves him unable to move from the post he is up against. "Please stay with me," he asks Sam. "You knew it would always end like this for me … It's okay. That's good. We had a hell of a trip, man."
Sam swears to find another way, but Dean replies, "No, take me back. You know it always ends badly. "It fades pretty quickly, so Dean tells Sam he needs to know two things:" I'm so proud of you Sam. You know that? I've always looked up to you … you're stronger than me. That was You always have been. "Then he admits that the night he came to Stanford to get Sam he stood outside his dorm for hours because he didn't know what Sam was going to say. He was afraid Sam would tell him he should get lost and he didn't know what he would have done if he hadn't had Sam. "It was always you and me. You and I always were," adds Dean.
"Dean, don't leave me. I can't do this alone," asks a tearful Sam.
"Yes, you can," replies Dean, to which Sam says, "Well, I don't want to."
And if you are not yet destroyed, Dean puts his hand on Sam's chest and says, "I am not leaving you. I will be right here with you, every day, every day that you live and you fight because you keep on going." fighting … I love you so much. My little brother. " Then he makes Sam promise that it will be okay, so Sam puts his hand on Deans and says, "It's okay. You can go now."
"Goodbye, Sam" are Dean's last words when his hand falls and a tear rolls down his cheek
Dean then makes it to Heaven, where he is greeted by Bobby, who explains that Jack has set up some things right up there. Heaven is no longer just about reliving memories. It should always have been like this: everyone happy and together. (John and Mary have a seat nearby!) "It's heaven you deserve," insists Bobby. Dean is surprised that Jack did all that, to which Bobby replies that Cas helped. And now that he's got all the time, what is Dean going to do with it? Take a ride with baby to the sounds of "Carry On Wayward Son", of course.
Meanwhile, a grieving Sam buries Dean before picking up a new case and continuing to fight as he promised his brother. If we jump through time we see that Sam has a son named Dean, then an older Sam takes the sheet from the Impala and gets in, slowly putting his hands on the steering wheel. Finally, Sam's son (who has an anti-possession symbol) stands over his father on his deathbed and tells him, "Dad, it's all right. You can go now," as the haunting cover of "Carry On Wayward Son" appears starts playing and Sam takes his last breath.
Cut to the sky where Dean stops in Baby on a bridge and gets out. As he stands at the railing, he feels something behind him and smiles. "Hey, Sammy," he says, turning to find his little brother. The two hug happily as the camera pans.
