The chance that "Supernatural" will end next season is getting bigger but also slimmer at the same time. Creator Eric Kripke told EW over the weekend that he never expected the show to survive five years but won't conclude that it will be the end of the Winchester brothers' saga.
"I did set out [to] tell a five-season storyline," Kripke said. "Quite frankly, I never expected [the show] to make it to five years. But now that we're in our fifth year, I have every intention of ending the story with a bang and not drawing it out or watering it down."
He continued, "That having been said, I'm looking at this season as the last chapter in this particular story. That doesn't mean there can't be a new story. Buffy did it. The X-Files did it. You close a chapter on a big mythology storyline and then you begin a new one."
He added that all the answers will be given in the fifth season and should they get a sixth season then there will be a set of new questions. The CW itself is still limiting the order up to the fifth which will premiere on September 10.
Meanwhile, the synopses of the first two episodes of fifth season have been released. [Spoiler Alert] In 5.01 titled "Sympathy for the Devil", Dean and Sam watch as the Devil emerges from Hell. The brothers and Bobby deal with the aftermath of Lucifer rising and the stunning news from Chuck the Prophet that Castiel was blown to bits by the archangels.
In 5.02 titled "Good God, Y'All", Castiel tells Sam and Dean that he is going to search for God, who will be able to defeat Lucifer. Bobby's old hunter friend, Rufus, is panicked about demons attacking his town, and begs Bobby for help. Sam and Dean arrive at the town and realize there is a spell over the townspeople, making them hallucinate that they are demons and causing them to kill one another.
