Every Supernatural finale fills me with both joy and dread because even when the Winchesters succeed, things still end badly for them. Car crashes, Lucifer rising, getting trapped in Purgatory; Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) just can't catch a break when it comes to finales! With the stakes even higher this year, I get the feeling their sacrifice will be respectively dire (the fact that the episode is called "Sacrifice" doesn't bode too well, either).
With any details about the finale (Wednesday at 9/8c on The CW) on lockdown, it's up to us to theorize about what's to come. Here's are my predictions:

But on the other, there's Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell), his late brother's widow (and his former militia hostage) who shares in Miles' moral depravity.

In the post-apocalyptic adventure, villains using nanomachines have eliminated most of the world's electricity, leading to chaos and brutal oligarchies. Revolution has just been renewed for a second season, so Kripke answered our showrunner survey to explain why you should plug in.

12. Best Dynasty Homage: There's been a lot of death and violence on The Following, but until this week, the show had been seriously lacking one key dramatic television component: a catfight. Fortunately, we can check off that box after Claire confronts Emma, the Follower who posed as her nanny and kidnapped her son. Claire slams her against the wall in a chokehold and repeatedly insists, "I'm going to kill you." Just the kind of woman who might marry a serial killer, ay? We finally...
