This is it for Supernatural. In “Carry On,” the Winchesters adjust to life after Chuck (Rob Benedict). 

THEN

When Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) found out that Chuck, aka God was writing their story, they declared war on him. The brothers wanted free will. They wanted to make their own life decisions. And Chuck was determined to have his epic Supernatural ending. The war cost the Winchesters everything. Their parents, their friends, and their angel Castiel (Misha Collins). But they found a way to defeat Chuck with the help of the nephilim, Jack (Alexander Calvert). Jack is God’s grandson and he found a way to absorb enough celestial power to drain Chuck of his power. Jack became God and Chuck became human. The Winchesters won their freedom.

NOW

It’s a new day for the Winchester brothers as they start their new life Chuck-Free! Dean wakes up at eight o’clock on the dot. Sam got up early to go for a run. He returns to the bunker to make breakfast for Dean. 

Their days are ordinary. Sam makes his bed. Dean attempts to do the same. Sam reads while doing laundry. Dean cleans his gun. All of this is done before 10 A. M. They convene in the library to look for anything weird in the world. Dean finds something, so they jump in the car and drive.

Dean found a pie fest. It’s Dean’s destiny. It’s so beautiful that Dean tears up. While Dean gets as much pie as he can carry, Sam sits on a bench, sad. He’s thinking of Cas and Jack. Dean thinks of them too, but tells Sam to cheer up. The one thing that cheers up Sam is being able to put Dean’s face in a slice of pie. He’s wanted to do that forever.

TROUBLE
Dean battles vampires in the Supernatural series finale.

Late one night, a young family gets ready for bed when someone rings the doorbell. The husband answers, but no one is there. But someone shows up and kills the man. The wife and her two boys run upstairs. The killers are wearing masks. They catch the woman and she screams. The two boys hide before the killers enter their bedroom. They find the boys under the bed.

Agents Singer and Kripke, (lol) Sam and Dean arrive at the house to investigate the scene. The killers cut out the woman’s tongue but she was able to draw a picture of the mask. Sam and Dean recognize the mask and go over the evidence. Dean determines that the killers are mimes. Or vampires. Or vampire mimes. These people target families who live outside of town and take kids between ages five and ten. 

The mime vampires find their next target, but the winchesters are already there to stop them. They kill one and capture another to question him. Sam has to threaten the guy with a spoon to get him to talk. These guys are vampires and they have a nest nearby. They take kids, fatten them up and then eat the kids.  

THROWING STARS

The brothers get to the nest and go through their weapons. Dean really wants to use his throwing stars, but Sam says no. They find the boys and are about to run away, but four vampires show up. Sam and Dean kill two of the vampires with ease. But there’s this one big vampire that knocks out Sam and pins down Dean. 

A woman walks up, smiling at Dean. Dean recognizes her. Her name is Jenny (Christine Chatelain). The brothers tried to save her from a vampire nest, but didn’t know she was already turned at the time. This is when they were looking for the Colt. She escaped and now she’s here to eat Dean. Luckily Sam wakes up and kills her. Sam kills one of the two remaining vampires. The other vampire, the big vampire fights with Dean. He picks up Dean and smashes him against a rail. Dean makes a weird face as Sam comes up from behind and kills the big vampire.

Sam is ready to go, but Dean says he can’t move. There’s something in his back and he feels like it went through him. Sam tries to help Dean move, but the nail in his back is the only thing holding Dean together. Sam says he will go for help, but a scared Dean Winchester asks him to stay.

IT’S OKAY

Dean knows this is the end. And he has something he needs Sam to hear. First he says it was always supposed to end like this. Sam doesn’t want to accept that, but Dean says it’s okay. Sam wants to find another way, but Dean tells him not to bring him back to life. It always ends up bad. 

Dean says he’s proud of Sam. He’s always looked up to him. Sam has always been stronger than him. The night he came for Sam, he was scared that Sam would tell him to get lost. He didn’t know what he would do without his little brother. It was always him and Sam.

Sam asks Dean not to leave him. He can’t go on without him, but Dean says he can. Sam doesn’t want to though. Dean tells him to keep fighting and he will be with him every step of the way. Dean didn’t think this would be the day, but it is. He needs to hear Sam say it’s okay. They both cry as Sam barely gets out the words ‘it’s okay.’ Dean dies. 

RIP Dean Winchester

CARRY ON
Sam enjoys his new life on the Supernatural series finale.

Sam builds a pyre for Dean, but hesitates to burn his body. Afterward he goes back to the bunker. He continues his ordinary life, but it’s much quieter. Sam wanders around the bunker and ends up in Dean’s room. He and the dog are both sad, knowing Dean isn’t coming back. 

Sam hears a phone ringing and searches for it. It’s in a drawer full of Dean’s cell phones. He finds the one phone ringing and answers. The voice on the other end asks for Agent Bon Jovi. He’s calling from Austin. They found a bunch of bodies without hearts. He says Donna Hanscum (Briana Buckmaster) referred to him.

Sam packs a bag and slowly walks to the door. When he gets upstairs, he turns around to look at the bunker. It’s clear that he’s never coming back. Sam and the dog leave the bunker for good.

JUST LIKE HEAVEN

Dean wakes up in the mountains. Bobby (Jim Beaver) calls to him from a cabin. Dean thinks it’s a dream because Bobby is supposed to be locked up in Hell. Bobby reveals that Jack let him go. In fact, Jack tore down all of the walls in Heaven. And with some help from Castiel, they changed a lot of things. Practically everyone Dean knows is there. Bobby even lives close to Mary (Samantha Smith) and John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). It’s not just Heaven, it’s the Heaven that Dean deserves. 

Bobby opens a couple of beers and hands one to Dean. Dean says it’s almost perfect. Bobby promises that Sam will be along soon. Time is different in Heaven. Dean has everything he needs, wants and dreams.  So what is Dean going to do? He sees Baby nearby. Dean is going for a drive. As soon as he gets in the car, Dean says hello to Baby. He starts the car and “Carry On” by Kansas is on the radio.

LEGACY

Meanwhile, Sam is still on Earth. Some time has passed. Sam walks in the part with a little boy named Dean. He teaches his son how to play catch years later. As time goes on, Sam and his son Dean remain close. When Sam’s hair is gray, he walks out to the garage. He uncovers Baby and sits inside, crying. Sam got his normal life and it was a long life. And in his last days, his son Dean (Spencer Borgeson) comes to him and tells him it’s okay. He can go now. Sam lets go and passes on.

RIP Sam Winchester.

Dean is still driving in Heaven. He comes upon a bridge and stops to get out. He walks to the center of the bridge and looks at the river. Dean smiles and says hello to Sam. He turns around and Sam stands there, looking as young as ever. The Winchester brothers are reunited in Heaven.

FAREWELL
Dean takes Baby for a ride on the Supernatural series finale.
