There were some  sparks of life in the season finale, but did anything really happen?

Crowley: This is desperate, and stupid.
Dean: Well, desperate and stupid is pretty much all we got right now.

Carry on, wayward sons! It’s nice to see that no matter how much Supernatural changes throughout the years, one thing doesn’t, and that’s the spectacularly edited end-of-season montage set to the Kansas classic, “Carry on Wayward Son”. Perhaps this year, the song’s especially appropriate, considering that’s exactly what this week’s episode dealt with: carrying on.

The show serves  up an Avengers-esque character round-up, but the plot is powerless.

For a show on the lowliest broadcast network with next to no coverage in the mainstream entertainment press, Supernatural has attained its status of an epic cult hit because of its exceedingly memorable characters. Looking beyond the core cast of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester, Castiel (Misha Collins), and Crowley (Mark Sheppard), the show built an universe full of lovable helpers (hunters, angels, prophets, etc.) and distinctive, occasionally likable villains (demons, monsters, gods, and witches). It’s an actor’s dream, where even guest stars that appear in a handful of episodes end up with their own fanbase and Funko Pop figurines.

As the season  11 finale looms, Supernatural seems to be subtextually analyzing its relationship with its fans.

“We’re not asking you to believe that this is true, just act like you do. People do it all the time.”
—Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) to Donatello Redfield (Keith Szarabajka)

That quote pretty much sums up this week’s episode of Supernatural, as the show’s fans have been separated into two distinct groups since last week’s possibly series-changing reveal that Chuck (Rob Benedict) is God. Some fans loved the twist, believing that casting the most supreme being in the universe as a relatable human dork is clever and in keeping with Supernatural‘s overall aesthetic. Others think that God should be more God-like, played by someone with a more serious, commanding presence.

"Don't Call Me  Shurley" offers significant plot developments coupled with a huge reveal, so why wasn't it a better episode?

In Supernatural fandom, there are several widely-held theories that fans believe and discuss, and either love or hate. Does the series have to end with Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) deaths? Is Ben (Nicholas Elia) Dean’s son? Is “Destial” actually a thing? Is Chuck (Rob Benedict) God?

Well, one of those questions was answered in this week’s episode, as Chuck Shurley, formerly known as a “hack writer”/unknowing prophet, revealed Himself to Metatron (Curtis Anderson), one of the series’ most unlikable angels.

Another stand-alone episode , but there's still plenty to discuss in the Supernatural world.

At the conclusion of the last episode of Supernatural, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester unsuccessfully attempted to both exorcise Lucifer out of Castiel (Misha Collins) and kill Amara (Emily Swallow), only to see her abduct Castiel/Lucifer, whom she referred to as “God’s favorite son”.
