While fans may not be ready to say farewell to Supernatural this upcoming season, that hasn’t stopped the predictions from rolling in. Cliffhanger doesn’t even describe what happened in the last episode of season 14, and our boys are tasked with trying to save the world without the sporadic, detached intervention of Chuck.

As Sam and Dean hit this final stretch, Chuck is both the master orchestrator and enemy, setting the stage for a wild array of storylines. The stakes are the high for the Winchesters and the audience, but how will things play out?

Here are a few ideas that fans (and we) have about the direction of season 15 that have a good shot of happening.

Jack will be back

This means more than it sounds. If you remember, Billie paid a visit to Jack in the “Empty” or “Void,” which is where dead angels, demons, and Nephilim go. Jack had questions about why he was there, and Billie explained that she was there to discuss things with him. That was that in the final episode.

The Empty is older than God/Chuck and is a dimension that he doesn’t preside over. As Death, Billie can resurrect beings, and this leaves the possibility open that she’ll bring Jack back to Earth—or any other plane—to help restore balance. Chuck did no one any favors with his stunt.

Some fans think that not only will Jack be brought back, but he’ll somehow be taking Chuck’s place as the ruler of all things. Billie and that shadowy, cosmic entity could be helping this to manifest.

Alexander Calvert—who plays Jack—told TV Insider he’s not sure what’s next for his character since he’s in the void, but there is one thing he wants:

“Hard to say. Is Jack the yin or the yang? God or the Devil? No matter what side of the coin he ends up on, I just want Jack to experience the belonging he craves.”

Sam and Dean are going to die together

The mere thought of this makes me choke up, but we know that an epic end is in store for the Winchester brothers—and Castiel. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly last month, Jensen Ackles stated: 

“This is certainly going to feel right and it’s going to feel good. It should put a lot of people in a position to feel great about the journey they took with the Winchester brothers.”

How does that look? As hunters, peace is not something that is part of their lives. Mary Winchester found peace after her death, and John Winchester is fine in that department too. A number of Redditors and Supernatural stans everywhere believe that in the end, the Winchesters will all wind up together in the sweet afterlife (or another dimension) as a happy family.

As demonstrated in past seasons, sometimes death is the type of sacrifice that’s necessary to save everyone, and perhaps this time the brothers won’t choose to do it alone.

Amara will get involved and Chuck will die

It’s already been confirmed that a number of familiar faces will be returning for the swan song, but could Amara be one of them? It seems necessary that she would have to jump in at some point and either pledge loyalty to her brother, God/Chuck, or help out Team Winchester.

In Supernatural mythology, it’s said that she’s more powerful than God, and after the two left the scene a couple seasons back, they probably went to one of his hideouts. Therefore, she’s privy to his secrets.

Finding Chuck’s vulnerable spot will be key to killing him or trapping him forever, and Amara could help with that directly or indirectly. And let’s not ever forget that way back in season five, the original Death said that someday, even God would have to die too.

There’s still time to catch up on old seasons and reminisce over characters from the past before the countdown to the series finale. Supernatural returns to The CW on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. EST.
