Supernatural - How Supernatural Can Kill Sam and Dean Still Gives Them Happy Ending

Welcome Back NationTV, Since Supernatural Season 14, Sam and Dean Winchester have had their horns locked with one of, if not the Most Powerful Being In The Supernatural Universe ( God Himself ), as his schleppy human guise goes by.  CW series is now midway through its 15 and the final season, this turn of events feels, for fans who watched this amazing show from the beginning, sort of a cosmically dramatic
yet inevitable thanks to bringing the curtain down on the hunter brothers' epic journey.
Ahead of Season 15's return to our screens following its winter hiatus, the show has released a trailer for the season's last half. Set to an original song from Jensen Ackles, the teaser, "Drowning," has Dean declaring: "We lost." If that wasn't enough, we get this equally Debbie Downer line from Chuck, "All goodies must come to an end." The trailer even hints at the death of Sam's new love interest. After many times they were close to Death, it seems, well and truly has Sam and Dean's number.

However, the closing line of the trailer -- also from Chuck -- is surprisingly optimistic, or a minimum of, pacifying: "No doubt, endings are hard. on the other hand, again, nothing ever really ends." The sentiment is ripe for all types of interpretations, and because the series is currently still shooting, there is no guarantee that what's shown during this sobering teaser is any indication of how Supernatural will end. However, it's hard not to dwell on the possibilities the line opens up.
If we take it literally, the declaration speaks to a really real coping mechanism for handling death: the comforting concept nothing is ever really gone if it's enshrined in memory. But it also speaks to a cyclical, open-ended way of viewing time, which is sensible seeing as we're talking a few fantasy series that dabbles in sci-fi. brooding about what we all know of the show, it's perfectly possible that Supernatural could have its mournful cake and eat it, too -- giving Sam and Dean an ending that's both heroically tragic and happy.

How? Easy: create another timeline.

Well, easy if you are the literal god that Chuck is, someone who can will things in and out of existence with a snap of his fingers. Time travel is hardly something new the Supernatural canon, though. Sam and Dean are zapped everywhere history by mere angels multiple times, and into other dimensions, too. Unless Sam and Dean permanently cage or de-power Chuck -- which could not be satisfyingly conclusive -- their only option is to slay him like they are doing the other monster. Except that, and it is a big exception, Chuck's life is tied to the universe's existence. Killing him will end up the whole Universe, which is too conclusive, and also not satisfying.
It's possible, then, that Sam and Dean could lose the ultimate battle against Chuck and go down within the blazing Butch and Sundance glory that Sam references within the trailer, but ultimately win the war by changing Chuck's feelings, and thus, his mind. Chuck is, after all, a really emotionally volatile deity. After being shot by the Equalizer gun within the Season 14 finale, he spent a variety of episodes at the beginning of Season 15 simply moping around before forcing an ex-girlfriend to become his hostage/therapist for each day. Chuck's fragile ego makes him both deadly and weak. He often acts out of spite instead of godly wisdom.
While Sam and Dean could lose their lives fighting Chuck, ending their story, there is a chance a regretful God could still give them a happier one by resetting things back to the instant they became destined to travel down the destructive monster-hunting path -- the instant that their mother, Mary Winchester, made an affect Azazel.

Born into a hunting family in 1954, Mary was highly skilled at removing evil creatures from a young age but reluctant to measure the "Life." Instead, she longed for monster-free normalcy, very similar to a college-aged Sam. In 1983, her life was changed when she meet The Demon Azazel, The Demon who has Yellow-Eye and The Prince of Hell. Mary had already encountered a time-displaced Dean ten years prior, who begged the younger version of his mother to not leave the house on the night of November 2. But, knowing Azazel had his sights assail a lover of hers, Mary disobeyed him.
Possessing her father, Azazel murdered John -- Sam and Dean's father -- and made Mary form a affect him in exchange for restoring his life. A decade later, Azazel returned to form well on this deal -- and murdered Mary ahead of an infant Sam. This act galvanized John to become a hunter so as to avenge his wife's death, and he raised his sons to follow in his footsteps. Removing Azazel from the equation would go away the Winchester family free to live life the traditional, peaceful life Mary always dreamed of.
Supernatural has always painted a reasonably bleak view of heroism -- one during which the sole reward for the Winchesters et al. like them is to easily not die while saving innocent lives. Yet, whenever Sam and Dean are allowed to offer up the hunting life, they've struggled to; it's in their blood to stay fighting. Putting these world-weary iterations of the brothers to rest while serving within the line of duty would be a fitting ending for them.

At an equivalent time, creating another timeline where we will see them get an attempt at true happiness would honor Chuck's "nothing ever really ends" line, without feeling sort of a cop-out. Either way, there will still be some beers on the Impala and many tears all around The Fans,
Legend of Seven Prince of Hell
