Supernatural Season 14 - 15: Hey God, It's me Jack
#1
Figured since no one actually created one for 14 I decided to combine it with the Season 15 thread since it's the last hurrah for Sam and Dean.

If tonight's cliffhanger is any indication I'd say the Winchesters will be facing the ultimate monster next season. Wow.

I binged 14 over the course of a few days and honestly, it's probably one of my favorite seasons post-5. The multiple Big Bad angle (Michael, then Nick, then Jack, then GOD) really worked for me and I thought this season had some of the strongest MOTW episodes in years (The zombie couple, the cannibal god, the Kohonta, JOHN WAYNE GACY). I was especially impressed by the practical effects for the Kohonta. One of my biggest complaints of the later seasons is that most of the "monsters" are just regular dudes with fangs. Not this thing. It looked disgusting in the best way possible. It actually would've made a good X-Files monster. I also really dug the black skeleton version of Lucifer, although it was pretty funny when Jack bitch-slapped him back into the Empty. Speaking of Jack, I don't think this is the last time we'll see him. I have a feeling he, Death and The Shadow will team up with Team Free Will to take on God.

That whole sequence at the end with all the past monsters they've killed coming back from Hell was so great. (BLOODY MARY!)

Going to be a wild ride next season!

I'm not sure exactly if the writers team knew next season would be the end when they came up with this season's finale, but it sure is a fitting one.  I dug the choice of Motorhead for the monster montage too.

And, yeah, this season was solid.  The quality varies year to year, but ramping up the stakes tends to help a lot.  The British Men of Letters stuff, for instance, was a bit of a snoozefest for me.  A big fight against God is much more interesting.

God (Chuck) doing a heel-turn and behaving impetuously at Sam and Dean's choice seemed really out of character. Amara must've been a really bad influence.

Yeah it's slightly odd. Like yes Sam is technically right and sums up many people's feelings about God but I never got the feeling that God was petty. Still having god be the last big bad of the series is fucking brilliant. I imagine Amara would have to factor into this now. Also this would be a GREAT time to bring back their poor half brother. Also Jesse really needs to make an appearance. Ya know....the original anti-Christ? That has been such a weird loose plot thread. You would imagine they would have found a way to do something with him during this whole Jack situation.

I always found it weird that Adam got an acknowledgement on Supernatural's 200th musical episode but then got nary a mention afterwards. Jesse would be a great get but with God being our new "big bad" , I somehow doubt that thread will be revisited. Now that I think about it, it would be humorous if the Winchesters converted their enemies to join their side because Chuck wanted to watch a TV show. Good way to get The Trickster back into the fray as well.

I mean, I sort of took the implication of the heel-turn of God as he was always playing them. Essentially he was just manufacturing these situations for his own entertainment and that's all this world is, just a great TV show for him.

That could also mean Amara was simply his creation as well, and an attempt for a cameo for himself in his own story.

As the great prophet Lemmy said at the end "God Was Never On Your Side".

But yes, great season, great cliffhanger. Look forward to the final run.

Right but the problem is that the show didn't play it that way, not really. Every time he showed up it was to help and then leave hoping the earth would right itself because he still had some faith in his creations. Like I know the writer thing was played up once but not like this. At the end of the day I don't care that much because A) it's super cool and B) this show has already retconned and rewrote it's own rules so many fucking times that something like this is far from the worst sin. Hell the fact that Nick was still around after Lucifer was killed is such a big break from the rules.
