You know Supernatural, that show where the 2 brothers go around defending the world, saving lives from demons, angels and everything in between?
Now Jared Padalecki (Sam) and Jensen Ackles (Dean) have sat down and shared their thoughts on how the show might end (don’t worry, there are still plenty of seasons left).
Jensen: “If you’d asked me season 1, I would’ve thought that it would’ve been the apocalypse. But then again, you can’t end the TV show with the worst thing happening.”
That’s a bit ironic, since they kind of already survived the apocalypse. He goes on to say:
“As we’ve evolved, I think that there’s different roads that the show could certainly go down that would be interesting. I think we’ve taken some really good turns.”
Jared adds on: “It’s changed a lot over time. Part of me, loving Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, always thought it’d be great to see the boys against insurmountable odds and to freeze-frame on them and just hear stuff in the background. You don’t know if they die, you don’t know if they live, but you know that they’re going to go out in a blaze of glory.”
“And then I went back and watched a few of the episodes, I watched through ‘Swan Song’ and the scene of the boys laying on the hood of the Impala. I think that’d be a nice way to go out if we had to — watching the end of the world. Or looking up at us from the trunk and throwing the weapons in and saying we’ve got work to do. All of those kind of leave room for opinion and room for interpretation. I don’t think we should see the boys die or live, we should wonder.”
Maybe it’s wrong, but I don’t like to think how it will end. I’m sure these guys have thought endlessly about it, being the stars of the show that’s just signed on for a 12th season.
But as Jared goes on to say: “The boys can’t stop fighting. As long as they’re alive, they’re not going to stop fighting. We’re going to have to see them continue to do good together. I think that’s what’s the most important part.”
Having sat through and experience so many different endings to each season, it’s hard to know how it will all end.
As Jensen says: “It’s either going to end tragic or it’s going to end not tragic, and I can kind of make an argument for both. I don’t really know where it’s going to go. I always thought Dean would make the ultimate sacrifice for his brother. I guess if I had to choose something, that’s probably what I would choose”
Whatever happens, you can always re-live each season on Netflix but I don’t think any Supernatural fan can listen to Kansas’ “Carry On Wayward Son” without getting a little bit upset.
