Right, to be honest this is my first discussion on any board online, the past few days I have begun commenting on other peoples and putting a few of my ideas out there but so far that is all. Over the years I have read many different people's theories and views on Supernatural and where it is headed. The thing that I have loved so much is that everyone puts their predictions out there, but they are never one-hundred percent sure that any of it will come true. That right there, is what makes Supernatural and the writers/team Kripke so much better than most other shows out there, they continually twist things from what you believe will happen and shock you with something else. So anyway, onto my predictions for the rest of the season.
Is this the end? Is Sam and Dean's journey reaching its finale? Any chance of a sixth season? A movie? A Castiel spin-off? First of all I'm going to go with the latter as being a no, purely as I have just thrown that out there for a laugh. But the other questions, the end? Kripke always planned for there to be five seasons to wrap up the story entirely, this is no secret. I personally think he should stick to this original plan. Don't get me wrong I love the show, but I also used to love Smallville and One Tree Hill but, because of the ratings keeping the show going longer than originally planned they have become shells of what they once were. I would hate to see Supernatural end up like this. As great as it would be to see more of this fabulous show the team should quit while on a high and have the show go out with a bang.
I guess that kind of answers the question of Sam and Dean's journey reaching its climax. However, it doesn't completely answer the possibilities of a sixth season. As I'm sure many of you are aware there are talks of Supernatural revolving around different hunters and starting afresh. Alas, I feel there is every chance this would merely come out as a rehash of what the show once was. There is a chance it may be fantastic, but are they willing to take that chance? Origin stories maybe? There are sets of comic book out set around John Winchester and his early hunting days. Could they make a series out of these I wonder (having not had a chance to get them as comic book stores are scarce where I live I don't know for a fact how good they are). But this is a possible angle, but one I fear would also be weak as we already know where the Winchester story is heading. Bobby origins? We have been given hints into Bobby's past but have not been given the whole story, is this something we are going to see later on this series? Or a possible spin-off?
Finally a movie? I have been thinking, as I'm well aware many other fans have, about the possibility of a movie, to finish it all? Not for theatres (I'm from England so I would have to watch some seriously crap copy or wait an absurdly long time) but instead a made for T.V. movie, like an extra long finale? That would make more sense to me. Kind of like The Final Break with PB except make it relevant to the plot rather than a brand new tale.
Prediction time. I'm going to start with expressing the mixed feelings that have been shared by fans about episode 5 Fallen Idols. I have seen a lot of hate aimed at this episode, mostly due to Paris Hilton. She gave me what I wanted to see from her, a grizzly death and I enjoyed as much as I enjoyed her going down on that massive pole in that film. You know the one I'm talking about. And speaking of House of Wax, I loved the joke by Dean and Sam's face. People also didn't like it as they didn't see the relevance to the apocalypse. I think what the writers have done is written the storyline to an episode that could have easily been placed in the first season when Sam and Dean didn't have the apocalypse hanging over their heads. Then they put in the whole apocalypse theme into the background and it truly reflected the rift between the brothers and that, no matter how hard they try to be like the good old days, they won't be able to, too much has happened. Basically, in my opinion, they threw in a light hearted episode to truly reflect the fact they the brothers Winchester will never be the same but they are going to have to try in order to stop what they BOTH unknowingly started.
I hate to keep coming back to her appearance as well but I feel that Paris played a bigger part than we could possibly have imagined. Now in her monologue she says about how people worship celebrities nowadays and when you think about it, it give's reason for God's desertion. As Lucifer has said, God created man and told the angels to love men more than Him, Lucifer disobeyed was cast down to hell and so the story of "Good" vs. "Evil" began. Then there are the Ten Commandments with a specific one being to do with idolising false gods, i.e. celebrities in this day and age. So God sees man idolising all these celebs and decides that He has had enough and leaves heaven, cue all the events that lead to the apocalypse. Now God saves Castiel, Dean and Sam but is making it difficult for them to find Him because He doesn't want the world to be destroyed but He doesn't want man to go unpunished. This could be completely wrong as I'm not a religious man so I don't know all the in's and out's of the Bible just the basic stuff.
I have also read a theory on here that Sam is already possessed by Lucifer and is luring Dean into a false sense of security and gaining the upper hand. This is an interesting theory. But I think we have all come to expect bigger things from Kripke and the team over the years to know that when Lucifer finally "wear's Sam to the prom" (which we all know deep down will happen) there will be some big twists that lead up to it. For instance Sam walking in on Dean's phone call the other day, Dean isn't that two faced and so I don't believe he was talking about Sam. However, Sam's paranoia about Dean never trusting him and blaming him for the apocalypse was fed by this and although they seemed to resolve it slightly at the end this could be something Lucifer play's on. I also don't want Sam to be possessed already as we haven't seen nearly enough of Mark Pellegrino yet, he must have had a collective ten minutes of screen (screen time he OWNED) but it's not nearly enough.
The showdown? Sam vs. Dean? we all predicted at the end of season 4 that Sammy was Lucifer's meatsuit. We didn't predict that Dean was Archangel Michael's. The season premiere threw us with that revelation mixed with the fact that Lucifer was circling another vessel. No Dean vs. Sam? But it's all been leading up to the big showdown! And then the team said April Fools it is Sammy really and we all knew it was back on track. This does mean that both the lads will have to agree to possession. Or will Dean's stubbornness prevent him from saying yes? Will he try to take on Lucifer as a mere mortal, with the knowledge he learned from his holiday to 2014? Possibly the most troubling question of all, would we be happy with Lucifer winning? Would Kripke do that? Will it even be Sam vs. Dean?
It seems I may have opened up more questions than answered. I could be entirely wrong (and knowing the team I probably am). I could just be reading into Paris' monologue a bit too much I don't know, we will just have to see. But please discuss my predictions, poke holes in them, post your own whatever I'm very open for a discussion. Who knows, together we may be able to come up with a plausible list of predictions that turn out to be true. Like a Castiel spin-off.
