I've been trying to find words to express what this show means to me for an hour. Except... that's not quite right.

I've been trying to find the words since March 22 2019, when I woke the morning after my wedding & saw the news that S15 would be the last.

#ThankYouSupernatural
Since then, I've been actively repressing the feelings of loss and grief. I've forced myself to focus on being thankful that we ever got to have these characters at all.

But now, time is running out, and suddenly I can't repress it anymore.

#ThankYouSupernatural
The number of measurable, real-world, life-changing effects that this show has had on my life is frankly absurd.

But it's true.

#ThankYouSupernatural
Because of this show, I learned who I was. I grew as a writer. I met my wife. I met my best friends. I moved to a new country. I found so much more love than I could ever have anticipated. I have actual hope that I'll succeed in my life goals.

#ThankYouSupernatural
Honestly, I've cried so much in the past 24 hours that I'm worried I won't have anything left as the episode airs.

But I'll still be here when it's all said and done.

#ThankYouSupernatural
Because Supernatural is like a loveworn record. It doesn't matter how many times I listen to it, because even if it gets a little crackly it's something that I can look at and hold onto and say, this changed me, and it changed me for the better.

#ThankYouSupernatural
I don't know if that simile made a great deal of sense. Like I said, I'm still struggling to put this into words.

The point is, this is never going to go away.

#ThankYouSupernatural
I love the beautiful parts and the ugly parts and the way it felt to just be with these characters for 42 and a half minutes every week. Seeing into their world has changed mine, and I'm so damn grateful.

So.

#ThankYouSupernatural
Thank you @therealKripke, for creating these characters and the world they live in. For building a foundation on which fifteen incredible years could stand.

#ThankYouSupernatural
Thank you @serathegamble and Jeremy Carver, for believing in the story and giving it a road to continue along.

#ThankYouSupernatural
Thank you @andrewdabb, for bringing us all home.

For allowing these characters to grow and learn and change and become their truest selves. For caring about these characters as much as we do, and trusting the story to speak for itself.

#ThankYouSupernatural
Thank you @robertberens, @Merecuda, @davyperez, @SleepyPanda76, @megfitz89, & @spacekicker for all of your words--even the ones that hurt.

You've been a dream team, and we've been so lucky to have every single one of you for this past few seasons.

#ThankYouSupernatural
And finally, thank you, @jarpad, @JensenAckles, @mishacollins, and @Alex8Calvert for making Sam, Dean, Cas, & Jack so real that it hurts to say goodbye.

You've all created something truly incredible. I'll forever be thankful for what you've given us.

Just sorting out my thoughts. Feel free to ignore!

I think the main reason why I'm more or less satisfied with the ending is because the bones were what I wanted them to be, even if the flesh was thin.

And because I can see it, I'm focused on the skeleton.
On my first watch I sobbed the whole way through & only retained a few things: namely, that the toxic codependency cycle was finally broken, that Cas was out of the Empty, that Heaven was no longer the Matrix, & that they'd all have freedom in the world that Cas and Jack built.
So even though I noticed the rough patches--things that were missing, or unclear, or executed poorly--the fact that so many major things I'd always wanted had happened was my main focus.

I'm honestly shocked at how vitriolic the reaction to this episode has been. Sincerely.
I was expecting a few people to be disappointed, because I could see so many fans convincing themselves that Misha literally telling us that 18 was his last episode was part of some kind of elaborate cover up. So there was always going to be a hard comedown on that front.
But despite a few small things (most of which I'd guess were covid changes) this was pretty much a perfect ending to me. I had a handful of dream endings. This was damn close to one of them.

I'll explain why in this thread. It'll probably be about ten points long, we'll see.

I see a bunch of people are unhappy but... this was pretty much exactly what I'd wanted & expected. For the brothers to break the endless cycle of costly resurrections, for the Heaven matrix to be dismantled and replaced with an actual reward ๐Ÿ’œ

#SupernaturalFinale
Knowing that Cas is free from the Empty and helped Jack to create a better Heaven has really got me like ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’œ I wish we'd been able to see them again, though.

#Supernatural
I'm also kinda inclined to think that Sam's wife was meant to be Eileen but COVID changes meant using a local actor as a stand in for the out-of-focus porch shot... yes, no, maybe? I really hope they can share the original script and changes that had to be made...
