Who else watched the season finale of Supernatural last night? Show creator Eric Kripke’s five-season long story-arc ended with the appropriately named episode, Swan Song. And it ended on a strong note.

The gravity of the situation was heavy throughout the episode, with the characters strongly emoting and reacting in ways that were heart-wrenching. It wasn’t just drama though; there were a few hilarious moments as well to ease the tension before hitting hard again. Interludes were woven into the finale, and some flashbacks that didn’t feel contrived helped bring a sense of nostalgia that served a great purpose. It was a very satisfying and bittersweet ending for the story-arc.

Another thing worth mentioning is that there was a lot less classic rock music this season, but Swan Song brought it back in full form. It was a nice touch for longtime fans.
