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? Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Chuck Shurley: So what's it all add up to? It's hard to say. But me, I'd say this was a test... for Sam and Dean. And I think they did all right. Up against, Good, Evil, angels, devils, Destiny, and God himself, they made their own choice. They chose family. And, well... isn't that kinda the whole point? No doubt - endings are hard. But then again... nothing ever really ends, does it?

Amazing
18 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am surprised at the number of comments that I have read online where people don't seem to understand that this episode was intended to be the series finale. The show was scheduled and planned to run for 5 years only. I'm thrilled that Supernatural will be back for a sixth season, but I can't imagine anyone writing another finale that will live up to this episode. The bar is now set very high. The writers did an amazing job putting it all together for us and coming up with a wrap up that is much more difficult than your average TV show. Most shows just have someone move, get married, die, or generally transition into a new chapter in their lives. Swan Song took care of all of those categories while tackling, ummm... Armageddon. Most of us can't say enough about how terrific this show was. With the exception of one classy genius who felt that the episode was too emotional and that Dean should end up with a skanky chick. Really? You didn't expect this to be emotional? You didn't pay attention to 5 years of the show. As for his other concern, you can see that most people disagree totally with his assessment. Like Chuck says- there will be some bitchy fan who just doesn't get what you were trying to say. Well, the rest of us did, and BRAVO!!
