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:
Supernatural fans proved their power yet again by helping star Misha Collins win a Shorty Award during Monday night's ceremony.
The Shorty Awards honor the best content producers on social media. Collins, who has more than 790,000 Twitter followers, was voted Best Actor in Social Media. Tara Strong, who voices Twilight Sparkle on My Little Pony, won Best Actress.
ABC Family's hit series Pretty Little Liars won Best TV Show, which recognizes the program with the best Twitter presence. The show's official handle boasts 1.2 million followers. Married to Jonas came in second, with The Vampire Diaries in third. Jonas star Kevin Jonas came in first in the Reality Star category.
Justin Bieber won the Celebrity Shorty Award.
Before I say anything, I'd like to preface with this: I love Castiel. I can't imagine Supernatural without him. When Cas didn't escape Purgatory with Dean, I couldn't wait for him to return. But right when we got Cas back, Naomi took him away.
He's still Cas, of course — eccentricities and all — but he's also Heaven's pawn. Though Cas is no longer an unquestioning servant to...
Castiel fans, rejoice! Misha Collins is being re-promoted to...
The remainder of Supernatural's eighth season — which resumes Wednesday at 9/8c on The CW — with the focus on Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki), who are on their quest to finish translating the "Word of God" tablet, which will allow them to shut the gates of Hell and trap demons there forever. But the Winchesters won't be alone in that pursuit. "Everyone's going to have some skin in the game," says exec producer Jeremy Carver, especially King of Hell Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard).
