Next week’s episode of NBC’s Parenthood will be their first ever season finale, so this week’s show focused on continuing some storylines while building up to the possible cliffhangers that are to come.

So far, the only cliffhanger I seen deals with Crosby, Jasmine, and Jabbar. Now living together in a semi-serious relationship, Jasmine and Crosby share a bed. After she pulled a muscle in her back because of the new sleeping arrangements, Jasmine was nursed back to health by Crosby. Through serving her tea that contained seahorses and giving her a foot massage, he learned that she is going to audition for a job in far-away New York. Taking a page from Flashdance, the former stripper seemed to ace her rhythmic dancing routine, which made Crosby wonder about their future.

As other season finales of “Supernatural” have begun in the past, tonight’s episode of “Supernatural” opened to the sound of Kansas’ “Carry On Wayward Son” during a montage of previous events. That unusually led to Chuck the prophet narrating the history of the Winchesters’ car, a 1967 Impala. An alcoholic Bible-thumper named Sal owned it until a young John Winchester bought it from a used car dealer. This led us to the present day, where Dean told Sam that he approves of his plan to catch Lucifer by accepting him. Saying, “You’re not a kid anymore, Sam, and I can’t keep treating you like one”, this was just the beginning of the fine acting that was to be seen on behalf of the show’s cast.

Later on, as Sam, Castiel, and Dean load gallons of demon blood into the Impala’s trunk, Bobby searches the newspaper headlines to guess where Lucifer is. However, it is Dean who notices the abnormally low temperatures in Detroit and remembers Lucifer hinting, “It would all go down in Detroit”. During the car ride, Sam makes Dean promise not to bring him back from Satan’s cage and to go off and live a “normal, apple pie life” without him.

Since it premiered on the WB (now the CW) in 2005, Supernatural has been largely a cult favorite. Despite the fact that it is one of the network’s highest rated shows, it has consistently been beaten in the ratings by its Thursday night competition. However, everything from comic books, novels, calendars, trading cards, shot glasses, and a fantasy role-player game has been created for its devoted fanbase. The love of its fans has even been controversially parodied by the show in reference to the fictional Carver Edlund’s Supernatural book series featured in recent episodes.

Series creator and current show-runner Eric Kripke has said in the past that he intended this current season to be Supernatural’s last, and the show dealt with the storyline that the apocalypse is approaching. However, ratings for the show are up, so it was announced that the CW is renewing Supernatural for a sixth season this fall.

But how will the show continue? Writer Sera Gamble revealed to the Chicago Tribune that the apocalypse plot would end this season, so that storyline won’t be dragged out any longer. Not to mention that Entertainment Weekly broke the news that Kripke is leaving his show-runner status to Gamble, possibly changing the show for better or worse. Meanwhile the show’s fans seem to be divided into two camps, those who feel that the show has run out of ideas and “jumped the shark” (as a recent episode was sarcastically named), and those who feel that the show is at its creative peak, thanks in part to the addition of new characters.

Whatever happens, some interesting television is ahead when Supernatural returns from a hiatus on March 25.
