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!
