‘Supernatural’ Penultimate Episode: Here’s Who Is Probably at That Church

Take time to digest the heartbreaking details of Supernatural’s latest episode before considering how the rest of this apocalypse will play out. Only TWO more episodes of the series remain before fans bid farewell to the Winchester clan. It’s officially time to break out the tissues.

After episode 18 aired, a brief trailer showed where the brothers are headed next. They are not giving up this fight with Chuck. Who’s on their side? Here’s one theory about who is waiting for the boys in the penultimate episode.

‘Supernatural’ episode 19 trailer showed church scene

At this point, viewers know that people have been wiped off the planet thanks to Chuck’s diabolical Thanos-like moves. Save for a dog, it doesn’t seem like there’s any life anywhere else. Hopefully, the dog isn’t Chuck in disguise.

In the preview for episode 19, the Winchesters and Jack are shown approaching a church. There are lights on inside and it’s obvious there will be someone from the past. Is the church a refuge or a workshop? Whoever it is, they are coming to help the gang beat Chuck.

It’s likely an angel coming in to help

Remember when Sam and Dean had that awkward, emotional reunion with their other brother, Adam Milligan?

It was eons ago (January to be exact), but Adam, who’s a vessel for archangel Michael, was conflicted about his place in the world and in the Winchesters’ lives. Michael also had deep-seated daddy issues that needed to be addressed.

No one knows if the archangel ever spoke to God or if he decided he’s now Team Winchester because of all the destruction. The last time fans saw Michael/Adam, he opened the portal to Purgatory so Dean and Cas could retrieve a Leviathan blossom.

Although Chuck could be directly responsible for Michael’s return earlier this season, there’s also the fact that Dean is his vessel too. These factors may spell trouble for Chuckie.

To back this theory up, Jake Abel—the actor who plays Adam—said during an interview with TV Insider that he felt his character had unfinished business.

“It felt so incomplete, and for me, that says that the story isn’t complete yet. I don’t know where they go or what they do, but if there’s one thing we know about Supernatural, it’s life tends to intervene in characters’ lives, even if they want to get away from something,” said Abel.

More tears are guaranteed

There’s a feeling that the Winchesters will see Bobby, Donna, and Charlie before the series signs off for good because this apocalypse isn’t exactly set in stone. Someone must repopulate Earth, right?

Though it is unlikely that viewers will see old fan favorites like Crowley, Rowena, Gabriel, or the ill-fated Kevin Tran again, it is a given that the last two episodes of Supernatural will hit where it hurts.

We just saw that in “Despair,” but the reality of finality makes it different this time. Tune in for the penultimate episode on Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. EST.
