Supernatural is heading into the home stretch of season 4. With only five episodes left, every minute counts as Sam and Dean Winchester race to stop Lilith from breaking the remaining 66 Seals and bringing Lucifer to Earth.
Unfortunately, fans may not get to see these final episodes uninterrupted. Early, unconfirmed reports suggest that more breaks are scheduled, and the scheduling of these final episodes might leave fans hanging for longer than they’d like. There are also recently released episode titles for all the remaining episodes, though they might give away more than you’d like.
SPOILER WARNING: Read no further if you don’t want to know what the final Supernatural episodes are called.
This Thursday brings the highly meta “The Monster at the End of This Book,” in which Sam and Dean discover a book series called Supernatural about themselves. That paradox will leave fans scratching their heads for three weeks, because Supernatural is taking yet another break.
The next batch of episodes return April 23 with “Jump the Shark,” and based on that title, fans could be in for a third straight “funny” episode. However, that paves the way for the final three very serious-sounding episodes.
April 30 brings “The Rapture.” This religious title certainly suggests that the angels will play a key role as Dean nears his ultimate destiny.
The penultimate episode of the season airs on May 7 and is called “When the Levees Break.” That bodes poorly for the Winchesters as it portends plenty of bad things ahead.
According to a blog post on Saving Faith’s Sandbox, the next week will be excruciating for Supernatural fans as the show will take yet another break on May 14. It’s not until the next week, May 21, that the Supernatural season 4 finale will air.
But it’s a big one, because the episode is called “Lucifer Rising.” Aside from being a brilliant companion title to the season premiere, “Lazarus Rising,” this episode promises to deliver what the whole season has been leading up to. Will Lucifer rise? Given this show’s history with season finales, I’d have to bet ‘Yes.”
Based on absolutely nothing but my own wild speculation, here’s my current theory: in the final moments of the season, Lucifer rises after the final Seal is broken. However, in order to walk the Earth, Lucifer must take a human body just like all the other demons. What body does he choose? Wile Sam might be the obvious guess, I’m leaning towards the even cooler possibility that Lucifer will take the form of John Winchester. I know the evil father is a bit of a cliche, but it could still be undeniable cool.
Do you think Lucifer will walk the Earth? And if so, whose body will he possess?
