Supernatural Season 15: Why the “happy” ending is always bittersweet
On October 10, 2019, The CW premiered the fifteenth and final season of Supernatural, an American dark fantasy television series produced by Eric Kripke. Supernatural just aired its latest episode, but fans aren’t happy with the long-awaited conclusion
Sadly, following the long-awaited final episode, Supernatural is the recipient of that fervor. Supernatural Season 15 was heralded as the final season of the Winchesters in a touching announcement video, and the premiere kicked off the season in style.
After Chuck opened the gates of Hell, Sam and Dean were confronted with a slew of old enemies, and once the Satanic orifice was completely closed, a cataclysmic war against the Almighty awaited. Supernatural season 15 was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic , but it resumed in October 2020 for a final series of episodes.
Due to the death of the main character and a relatively easy fight against Chuck, the preparation for Supernatural’s finale had already proven to be controversial. The final episode, titled “Carry On”, will follow the same divisive path. Fans reacted to Supernatural’s conclusion with a combination of bitter disappointment and lukewarm indifference.

There are bright spots to be found (especially in the performances of Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, as you might expect), but “Carry On” receives more criticism than praise. Here are the hottest debates among fans. While many fans believe Supernatural’s finale deserved a more elaborate storyline, the episode also left a frustrating amount of detail to the imagination.
The death of the two Winchester brothers, the fate of the earth, paradise is getting a makeover, etc. Only a few final episodes (such as Lost) manage to answer all the unanswered questions, but Supernatural skips several of the essentials.
For example, what happens to the Bunker? Supernatural should have included an emotional scene in which the keys to the Bunker are passed on to a new generation of hunters in a passing torch moment, assuring viewers that the world will be taken care of without Sam and Dean.

To many audiences, the conclusion seemed rushed, incorrect, and illogical. The cast and crew of “Supernatural” have spent the past 15 years entertaining their fans with meta-crossover moments, secret trivia eggs, inside jokes, and other special features. The final episode, on the other hand, seemed like an afterthought – just a checkbox before “moving on” to other companies.
