Storyline

Going with Dean to Lucifer's place, Sam--expecting to lure the cunning being and trap him with the Four Horsemen's ring--agrees to be His vessel. However, Lucifer is smarter and uses his son's vessel instead to fight against Michael, who is using Adam's vessel. Dean and Chuck discover the place of the final battle--an old cemetery in Lawrence--and Dean heads there in his Impala with Bobby and Castiel. Will they be able to avoid the inevitable?

Trivia

Was supposed to be the series finale. Eric Kripke initially planned for Supernatural to be 5 seasons long. That is exactly why the episode is named "Swan Song" (goodbye)with a voice over and flashbacks. But Sera Gamble, the new show-runner, took over penning it from season 6 and on. See more »

Quotes

Chuck Shurley: The Impala, of course, has all the things other cars have. And a few things they don't. But none of that stuff is important. This is the stuff that's important: the army man that Sam crammed into the ashtray, it's still stuck there. The Legos that Dean shoved into the vents, to this day, he comes on, they can hear them rattle. These are the things that make the car theirs, really theirs. Even when dean rebuilt it from the ground up, he made sure all these little things stayed. 'Cause its the ...

By Far The Best Season Finale Tet!
13 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Those who have kept up, and are hard core Supernatural fans will be please with the season finale of Supernatural Season 5 Swan Song. The episode from the beginning to end will not only keep you off your seats but will tear away at your every bitter emotion, as well leaving you shocked with twists that you never saw coming. The leading actors of Jared, And Jenson was nothing more then brilliant!. Supporting actors Misha, and JimB were fantastic hats of to you.

Review: I don't want to spoil anything for you guys, therefore i will make this spoiler free. When season finale 3 ended I thought it was the most heart wrenching finale i had ever seen, the fact that dean went to hell, for making a deal to bring his brother back was just heart wrenching. However i don't think i have ever seen a better season finally until this episode. I could not stop standing, for an hour! i stood waiting for the damn commericals to end. The acting was just amazing as i said before! Everything was superb, music, visuals, everything!. However! Nothing! AND I MEAN NOTHING! Compares to the last 15-20 minutes of the finale. Especially the last 10 minutes. Last 10 minutes was not only brilliant, but i believe in my heart that this season final was the best season finale i have ever seen!.

Finally: This episode had no faults. I could not pick anything wrong with it. I give it a perfect 10. And its rare, to find a series that averages a 9+ rating in almost every episode! I just hope that they do not milk the series, like they have in smallville, and buffy the vampire slayer, i think 1 or 2 more seasons should be good. I thought this would be a perfect series finale the way it ended. However that wont be the case and im happy because i want more supernatural!
