Best show for five years, best 5th final for five years
14 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For every hardcore Supernatural fan. For every lover of Sam and Dean. For every pleasured soul who has enjoyed watching this show since 2005, when all hell broke loose, then you'll love season 5's finale episode.

Eric Kripke, you should be proud of yourself. Cause your writing is the best damn thing, and it works. Robert Singer, your directing in this episode was brilliant. And Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Mischa Collins, Mark Pellegrino, Jake Abel and Rob Benedict your acting made us all cry, or made me cry. I feel like thanking, cause this episode was epic.

I'll not spoil anything for those who are reading this, cause you need to watch it with all of your heart. Everything was amazing in this final episode. It was tragic, emotional, exciting, brutal and heart-breaking. That's all I'm going to reveal. I could praise the actors/actress to the skies, and the writers, directors of this show and in this season. This season finale showed how accomplished this show is. The last five years Supernatural have been the most successful show, according to me. But this final episode also showed that it the most original show.

I cried my way through the last 15 minutes; I even had to put on a new layer of makeup.

Somehow it was almost like watching the series final episode. But I'm definitely looking forward to the 6th season.
