Comic-Con is almost here and it’s when fans will get a sneak peek at season 6 of Supernatural, but for now we’ll have to settle for the swag bag Warner Brothers will be giving away at the studio’s booth for Supernatural this year.
BuddyTV will be at Comic-Con with all the updates, so check out the full schedule for details.
Exclusively available to Comic-Con attendees, the bag is for both Smallville and Supernatural, but it’s the Supernatural half that deserves scrutiny. Here’s a bigger image of the logo:
The End Begins.
I thought the apocalypse was the end, but I guess it wasn’t. This is a creepy and disturbing tagline for season 6 because, when combined with the image, it looks like it might refer to the end of Sam and Dean.
Sam, Dean and the Blood
The image is incredibly creepy, with a long drop of blood splitting Sam and Dean apart. Blood has always played an important role on the show, from the demon blood Sam drank to get his power to the fact that the Winchester bloodline is what made Dean the perfect vessel for Michael. It seems as though blood may come between the brothers again.
The saddest part of the bag, if we’re interpreting it literally, is the clear division of Sam and Dean. Sam’s “death” at the end of season 5 was confusing, and if Dean was skeptical the first time he came back, this should be much worse. Will they be able to get back into the swing of things or will Sam’s shocking return be met with hostility? While fans hate it when the brothers fight, I would guess that getting Sam and Dean happily together again will take some time.
What do you think of the bag? Am I reading too much into it or not enough?
