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

Stull Cemetary, where Dean found Lucifer and Michael, is an actual place about five 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 and answer questions about your future.

Goofs

At the end Castiel says he is returning to Heaven because with Michael in the cage there is chaos up there since no one is left in charge, to which Dean replies "so you're the new sheriff in town eh". However the Archangel Rafael is still alive, so it stands to reason he is in command of Heaven now, which means Castiel would have to fight him for control. Even with the new powers given to him by God, Castiel is no match for an Archangel. See more »

Brilliant!
8 November 2014 | by daggersineyesSee all my reviews

LMAO at the reviewer who suggests this episode was bad and the show is out of new ideas and "starting to run out of steam" etc. Here we are another 5 seasons later and it's still going - stronger than ever so bet your face is red now mate! I've only just started watching this show and have been binge watching each season because it's so riveting. This episode was fantastic and I loved it's unpredictability. Yeah we all knew certain things were likely, I don't think the writers ever pretended otherwise - so they ran with it and still gave us many surprises. Other reviewers have covered some of the most magic moments of this finale so I wont. Suffice to say it was a deserving finish to what has been a stunning 5th season of this show. I can't praise this series enough. This episode gets 10 of 10 from me.
