The mid-season finale of Supernatural
may have been incredibly
depressing and without hope
, but one single line caused fans' minds to
start racing at the speed of light. After Lucifer got up after being
shot by the Colt, he said that he is one of only five creations that
are immune to the Colt's killing ability.Read More About the Origins of the Colt>>
This comment caused my mind to race with a thousand different
questions. Does he mean him specifically or angels in general? What
are the other four? Why would Samuel Colt do this? It's enough to
fans in a daze of theories and possibilities.
For the sake of my own sanity, I'm going to assume he was referring to himself and not all angels. Creations can refer to an entire class of beings or individual creations, and I choose to believe it's the latter. With that in mind, what are the other four?
Since Lucifer is immune, it's a pretty safe bet that God is also immune. A gun that can kill God but not Lucifer seems a little unrealistic, even for a show that featured Paris Hilton.
I'm also inclined to assume Michael is the third creation. He and Lucifer are the two primary rivals, and they seem like they're equals on the battlefield, so it would be logical to assume that Michael is also safe.
But who else could it be? Possibly Sam and Dean are immune, since they seem unbelievably important, but that might be too easy. Are there other major players we haven't met yet? Angels like Castiel aren't important enough in the grand scheme of things to fall under this incredibly limited exception to the Colt's awesome power.
Another popular theory is that God and Michael aren't immune, and that the other four creations are the Horseman of the Apocalypse. If this is true, it would essentially mean that Samuel Colt was a Devil worshipper, because there's no other reason to invent a gun that can kill anything except for Lucifer and the Four Horsemen.
If Lucifer actually did mean that all angels are immune, then that means there are four other kinds of creatures that aren't. We know it kills demons and humans, so what else is left? God? Horsemen? Unicorns?
My brain is already starting to fry a little bit, so I actually appreciate the long hiatus before the next new episode of Supernatural
, because it gives us time to think. But I have no doubt that Supernatural
will come back to this. You don't casually drop in line about being one of four creations immune to the Colt without any intention of exploring the other four. Eric Kripke might be crazy, but he's not that crazy.
So who else do you think is immune from the ultimate killing power of the Colt? Am I even remotely close or way off base?
