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 too 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 the 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 badass as she was I felt Abandon was a bit underdeveloped) 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 subplot as well as the brilliant way that Castiel outthought Metatron. I also loved the conclusion of Dean’s storyline of the season and thought that they PERFECTLY left an amazing cliffhanger. 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 than rewarded for a ho-hum season.
