Oh Supernatural what a topsy turvey show you are. From the highest highs like seasons 2-5 (which I consider the greatest TV arch or all time) to a ho hum sixth season, terrible seventh and not to shabby eighth season. Suffice to say though season nine had a lot to live up to now that the show was back to being almost as good as it was with Kripke as a main guy on it.
So did this season fulfill what it was seemingly promising? Like much of Supernatural after Kripke it does and doesn’t. While we were promised an epic Angels VS Demons VS humans WAR what we got was interesting but FAR less grandiose and instead we get ANOTHER addiction story which season four did WAY better and more Sam and Dean whining.
ON THE OTHER HAND it did really spend time fleshing out the non Sam and Dean characters like Crowley, Metatron and Castiel (however as bad ass as she was I felt Abandon was a bit under developed) and ending an arch that I felt had gone on FAR too long. So let’s discuss how it all ended shall we?
Without giving away anything I loved the ending plot twist and how they resolved both the heaven sub plot as well as the brilliant way that Castiel out thought Metatron. I also loved the conclusion of Dean’s story line of the season and thought that they PERFECTLY left an amazing cliff hanger. As it obviously should be given the paramount nature of season finales it’s difficult to discuss it without giving away any spoilers HOWEVER I do highly recommend this finale if you’re sticking with the season you’ll be more then rewarded for a hohum season.
