Well, yeah, Holy Crap indeed. I've been looking forward to Chuck's expected return, but I wasn't expecting anything like this. But you know what they say: Chuck answers all prayers, but sometimes the answer is "Zombie Apocalypse."

One of the things that's always intriguing about Chuck's appearances is the suggestion of limitations to his powers. Apparently he can't just restore Jack's soul with a snap of his fingers like he can restore the world. And he seemed to admit that he was nervous about Jack because Jack has "Chuck-level" powers. Or was he lying? Is it really all just about the story, about Chuck's favorite show? Are they really suggesting that all the pain and misery in the world is just because God is nothing but a writer? You know, I'm really offended and outraged at the negative portrayal of writers on this show. Writers contribute a lot to society. We deserve better representation and agency. Or at least better agents. Anyway, it seemed very odd that all-knowing Chuck could be surprised by Dean's actions-- and it seemed even weirder that he tried to bribe Dean by offering to resurrect Mary. Not to mention that he was able to fry Jack so easily after saying that he couldn't. I kept thinking that everything that was happening was some kind of test-- or temptation-- to see how the boys and Cass performed. And I still don't think that that is necessarily off the table.

But for all appearances, as we head into the final season, we've got the actual Biblical Apocalypse when the graves give up their dead and stuff, however that goes. I find this intriguing, because for a long time I've thought of Supernatural as the Third Testament, and that the Winchesters would be game changers in the state of the world and its relationship to Heaven and Hell. Perhaps that will actually happen. It could be that Chuck is testing humanity by means of the Winchesters or it could be that he will be the Big Bad of the final chapter. Maybe one or both of the Winchesters will replace him. Assuming they aren't both consumed by cannibalistic Zombies and that the final season isn't set in the Squirrelverse.

And what about Jack, out there in the Big Empty? Was that wiggly black thing the Big Empty Curator or Lucifer? And there was Billy, telling Jack that they have to talk-- the assumption would be that she wants to talk to him about being dead, but I think there's something more to it than that, especially after she came up in conversation between Dean and Chuck.

Looks like next season is going to be a mighty weird finale. I can't wait. :D

You beat me to the punch. WOW, indeed. :eek: When Chuck happened along, I figured he was going to lend guidance to the Winchesters, et. al. I had no idea he was going to end up being a twisted jerk who is the final "big bad" the Winchesters must defeat. My theory about Jack being possessed by Lucifer was obviously wrong; however, I'm not surprised the box couldn't contain Jack since he's not an archangel.

I got a kick out of Chuck putting Dean in his place when Dean initially demanded answers. Dean's not accustomed to people pushing back, so that was very humorous (to me). Overall, Chuck was probably lying about not being able to restore Jack's soul. He presented Jack as quite the opponent, stating he himself could not use his ultimate weapon to kill Jack due to the universal constant of balance. As the scene played out in the cemetery, he demonstrated how he was hoping "the story" would play out. He wanted old fashioned Abraham and Isaac, yet the rest of the group refused to play along. We now have his ire invoked and the statement that it's 'The Ending'.

Looking back, he had some harsh comments about Billie. He preferred the previous Death because she interferes too much or interprets the rules differently. I am also curious who or what that black being is. I'm thinking Billie is involved because things aren't right, so she's going to ensure they are.

One of the best season endings for a show. I hope the final season isn't a slog, but yields a reasonable and satisfying ending. :thumbsup:

Definitely the best cliffhanger they've had on this show. I'm excited and scared for next season.

Chuck's behavior still seems off to me, but he is, after all, the Christian God. We've seen him go from benign to wrathful in a nanosecond before.....
