The finale of season 13 of Supernatural was anything but comforting. Three characters died and a lot was left unanswered. So where can the show possibly go from there? We have a few ideas.
1. Castiel comes back—but in a different way
Misha Collins confirmed that Cas is coming back. Cue us sighing a huge breath of relief. But obviously something big will change because he looked very dead when Lucifer stabbed him. So what will change? Will Castiel be human again? And how does he come back—will the nephilim have a role? There are so many different roads this could take. But we’re just happy our fave angel will return.
2. Chuck makes an appearance
3. Lucifer and Mary in the alternate world
When we last saw these two characters, they were trapped together in a different universe. Not ideal. So what will happen? Will Mary escape, or will she work *with* Lucifer to get out of there together? Whatever the case, we definitely have some interesting scenes coming up. Honestly, we’d be happy to see her punching the devil even more.
4. Lucifer’s kid grows up
This plot point is now very, very real. With Lucifer’s son born, the nephilim could change the tide of a lot of things in Supernatural. Especially since Luci is stuck in the alternate universe. So will someone try to take on the duty of “raising” the child? And will it turn out to be good or evil? It’s up in the air at this point but we’re interested to find out.
5. Other versions of characters
Another interesting thing about the alternate universe is the potential for characters. We already met Alternate Bobby: hardened and very much alive. Will we meet a different version of Cas—perhaps a high-and-mighty warrior for Heaven? And will we see other dead characters like Charlie, Kevin, Jo, or Helen again? We sure hope so.
6. Rowena’s return
7. Sam and Dean have a lot on their plate
As always, the Winchester brothers have a lot to deal with going into the next season. They have to figure out whether the nephilim is good or bad. Along with this, they might try to save Mary from the other universe. And they have to deal with Castiel’s death until he comes back. Long story short, they won’t be just saving people and hunting things. We’re already interested to see what happens!
