Supernatural Season Six will begin the first of its final three episodes of the season this Friday, May 6th and episodes 21 and 22 will air in a two-hour finale that airs on the CW on Friday, May 20th at 8:00.
Here's what we know:
Episode 20: "The Man Who Would Be King" will address Castiel's connection to Crowley and the civil war in Heaven. Also, Dean's faith in Castiel will be tested as it rocks his trust to know that Cas and Crowley have been cohorts. Dean can forgive a lot but he runs into trouble when it's betrayal, so we'll have to see how that story arc plays itself out. The picture of Dean and Sam leads me to believe that Dean summons Castiel to question him and I'm guessing into a ring of holy fire, so he can't escape the interrogation. It's clear that Cas cares for the Winchesters and that was evident when the Mother of All bit Dean in the neck and Castiel called out Dean's name in concern. However, Cas has changed and the old saying rings true for the embroiled and troubled angel. There will be alot of ground to cover in this week's episode, so buckle up, it's gonna be a bumpty ride.
Episode 21: "Let it Bleed" will confront Dean with one of his biggest fears: family being put in danger because of him. In this episode Lisa and Ben are kidnapped by demons in order to get to him. Sam and Dean are forced to join with an unlikely ally to free them. I'm hoping that Sera Gamble who penned this episode does not kill them off, as it would come off too blah for me and un-original. I'd like to see the L&B story arc have some closure but not involve either of them dying. I'm curious to see how this goes and the ends meet at the end of the first hour of our 2-hour finale.
Episode 22: "The Man Who Knew Too Much" will surely be an angst-filled last hour to the finale as the Great Wall of Sam comes crashing down. The CW released the synopsis: the wall comes down in Sam's head and all hell breaks loose. Dean and Bobby, are, for once, at a total loss on how to help him and are forced to stand by and do nothing while Sam breaks. The battle for heaven comes to a head. Lots of questions: will Sam be the proverbial Humpty Dumpty? Will he even be conscious when the screen fades to black? What brings on the wall's destruction? Poor Dean and Bobby what will they be going through? Will Sam be Sam or left broken? What happens with the war in Heaven? Episode 22 was written by the show's creator/executive producer and former show runner Eric Kripke which usually means we're in for angst and a cliff hanger that will have every SPN fan tearing their hair out as they struggle through an entire summer speculating. I'll be one of them and I'm eager for season 7 to start in the fall.
I'm so eager for Season Seven as I fully believe that Supernatural still has a lot of potential to harvest, as the ground is still quite furtile. So, fellow SPNer's, be prepared for angst, maybe even some tears (yours and mine), yelling at the screen, and a hair ripping cliffhanger for the conclusion of Season Six.
