Without Chuck, there are fewer monsters. Sam has time to take Dean to a
The brothers have one last monster fight. A couple with two young sons
gets attacked by unnamed monsters in mime masks. The husband is killed;
the wife's tongue is cut out. The two children are taken.
Sam and Dean announce to the local cops that they are Agents Kripke and
Dean recognizes it as one of their father's cases, and hauls out their
father's notebook, which we haven't seen for a very long time.
They kill the nest of monsters and rescue the boys. Jenny shows up, whom
I don't recall at all; Sam kills her.
During the fight, Dean is shoved against a menancing piece of rebar
sticking out from a wooden post holding up the barn. It has no reason to
Dean dies slowly. For once, he talks Sam out of resurrecting him and
just begs him to accept his death. He tells same he needs to hear him
say that he can let go of life.
Dean really never got to live a life that hadn't been orchestrated by
Chuck. Fighting monsters with his brother was his life, and I guess the
lesson is he would have lived that life anyway. Dean died a hero's death.
We don't see Jack and Cass, but Heaven for Dean is no longer individual
cells. Everyone from Dean's life is nearby. Bobby receives him, having
been released from Heaven's prison. He tells Dean that, before Jack
went, he fixed Heaven as guided by Cass.
There are no angels.
A version of Baby is there, and Dean goes for a drive that lasts till
the end of Sam's life. Turning on the radio, of course "Wayward Son" is
playing, in the familiar version by Kansas.
Check out the comments, all about Sam and Dean anticipating the
Back at the bunker, Sam answers one of Dean's cell phones (there never
has been an explanation for how they are always charged up) and goes off
on a case. I think he takes the fluffy dog.
Sam lives a long life and isn't killed by monsters. Baby has survived the
decades, mostly kept under a tarp. He has a son, whom he names Dean of
course. We don't see the woman he married; it's just an extra out of focus
in background. At the end, Sam's son Dean tells his father he can let go.
Dean's drive reaches its destination. He's reunited with Sam, once again
in his mid 30s. It's a bridge over a picturesque stream somewhere near
Jensen and Jared say goodbye to the television audience, then the camera
pulls back to show us the entire crew standing on the bridge as well.
