Top Supernatural Series Ending Theories
Sam and Dean have been fighting monsters for 11 seasons now. They have both died, came back, and died again. However, as the saying goes, every story must end. How exactly will this one end though? Right now there are no answers from the powers that be, but we can find plenty of theories elsewhere.
Dean Will Hit the Road Alone
This theory comes from Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean Winchester in the show. Apparently, he got the idea for this theory from a dream he had. In the dream, Sam had died (for good this time), and Dean was left alone with no way of bringing his brother back. Without his brother, Dean no longer needed his beloved Impala, so he traded it for a motorcycle which signaled that he was now alone.
For anyone who knows Dean, this might be the most depressing way to end the show. Dean would give anything for his brother, including his own life, which he's actually done before. It might be a heavy burden to carry, but Dean will always put Sam first. So with everything that Dean has been through, let's hope the writers give the elder Winchester a more optimistic ending.
Jared Padalecki plays Sam Winchester, and he has his own theory on how he wants the series to end. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Padalecki says he would like to see the show end as "the boys" come face to face with overwhelming odds (an army of demons, vampires, werewolves, ghosts), and the viewers don't see if they succeed or die but know they are going to go out fighting.
The CW pulled a similar ending when they put the final touches on the series Angel, so the network has history with these endings. It would also be relevant for the story if the show ended like this, as the brothers have said they will go out swinging.
Dean is Dead and Sam is Lucifer
Okay, so this theory caters to the nostalgia that fans have for the first five seasons of the show. The theory says that Dean has died after season five, and Lucifer successfully took over Sam's vessel and controls the world. Every season after season five is part of Dean's version of Heaven. He simply can't live without hunting or his brother.
I have to say that I will be disappointed if everything after season five is a dream, even those really bad storylines (think season 7). With all the work put in, these actors and the crew deserve to have a better send off than that.
The Show Will Never End
Buddy TV put together responses from fans on how the fans want the show to end. One fan writes that they don't want the show to ever end and hopes that the two actors along with their characters will grow old on the show.
With this theory, we can only hope.
