Supernatural will be getting a two-hour time slot to air its final two episodes this season at 8PM on May 20 on CW 11 in Queens, due to the fact that Smallville is taking over the network the previous Friday, May 13, for its series finale.
But those final two Supernatural season 6 episodes won’t be a two-parter. They each stand alone, as the show brings together the ends of all the loose ends of the season. According to Sera Gamble,
“We heard pretty early that we should be prepared for them to air on the same night. We had so many threads to tie up this season, we didn’t end up telling one story that stretches over two episodes. Instead, they work as companion pieces and separate episodes.”
These final two episodes, numbers 21 and 22, “are brother-centric and ‘very much about Sam and Dean coming together,'” but the first episode, ‘Let It Bleed,’ will be more Dean-centric, and Gamble says,
“He started this season completely out of the hunting life, and he has a lot of fears about the worst version of himself in that situation – who he could turn into and the bad he could do to other people. There’s a reason he has so few people in his life, and it’s because he has a lot of fears about what he could bring into their lives – what he could do to them. He has to face that in this episode.”
“We look at those issues through a Supernatural lens, which is fun because then they get really bloody.”
Lisa and Ben are due back in that episode. They were last seen in ‘Mannequin 3: The Reckoning,’ and it had seemed like that was going to be it for them, as Dean left them once again, this time with a montage as he drove away. A return from them in the middle of everything going on can’t be good news. With spoilers of deaths coming before the season ends, could one or both of them get in the crosshairs and wind up on the list of fatalities?
The second episode, the season finale, ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much,’ focuses on Sam. Based on that title alone, it seems safe to say that it’s going to deal with that wall breaking. Will the final scene of the season, which is ending on a cliffhanger, show just that? Sebastian Roche, who plays Balthazar, has tweeted photos of him, Jared Padalecki, and Jensen Ackles, in the panic room. That doesn’t seem like it means good news for Sam.
With three story lines needing to be wrapped up – Sam’s wall, Castiel’s war in heaven, and Eve – it’s no surprise these final episodes are going to be dark. Supernatural is new tonight with the Old West episode, ‘Frontierland,’ at 9PM on CW 11 in Queens as the brothers go back in time to try to find a way to defeat Eve. Meanwhile, Castiel is on his own path with his war in heaven, and more of his story line will be revealed in episode 20, ‘The Man Who Would Be King.’ Which of the remaining episodes are you looking forward to the most?
