Did You Know?


Stull Cemetary, where Dean found Lucifer and Michael, is an actual place about 5 miles west of Lawrence, KS. It has been rumored that in the past black masses were performed in the chapel ruins and that on Halloween night, a demon or devil sat in a tree inside the cemetery. It would supposedly answer questions about your future. See more »


Lucifer: Sorry if it's a bit chilly. Most people think I burn hot, it's actually quite the opposite.
Dean Winchester: Well, I'll alert the media.

The End of the Weakest Season
3 May 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sam goes with Dean to Lucifer's place and accepts to be his vessel, expecting to lure the cunning being and trap him with the four Horsemen's ring. However Lucifer is smarter and uses son's vessel instead to fight against Michael that is using Adam's vessel. Dean discovers the place of the final battle with Chuck in an old cemetery in Lawrence and he heads to the place in his Impala with Bobby and Castiel. Will Dean be able to avoid the inevitable?

This weak and silly Fifth Season ends with a terrible episode. The Fourth Season ended in the climax with the break of the 66th seal releasing Lucifer, but unfortunately the Fifth Season begins with a disappointing episode with Dean and Sam awaking on board of a plane without any explanations in "Sympathy for the Devil". This conclusion with the silly connection of Sam to the Impala shows that everything that begins bad, ends badly. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "A Canção do Cisne" ("The Swan Song")
