This is dedicated to my #SPNFamily.
Fifteen seasons, over 300 episodes, and a lifetime full of memories. My heart has so much it wants to say, but my brain can’t seem to find any of those words. There are many emotions that come with this post. Sadness, happiness, denial, anxiousness. Probably more, but I can’t think of those at the moment, but these are the main four.
Only a crazy person can be this emotional over a tv show ending right? Well in that case, color me crazy.
Supernatural is more than “just a show.”
It’s a family.
We have been on such an emotional rollercoaster with the Winchesters and their friends, that it almost feels like we have actually met them. As if they were real people. They may just be fictional characters, but for 15 years we’ve been on their journey that has been full of laughs, hugs, tears, and a whole lot of ass kicking.
Now, there aren’t many shows that have lasted an immensely long time. You can probably count on both hands the amount of shows that have lasted and been on air for more than 8 seasons, and even better…lasted for 14-15 years.
I mean go ahead; you can count. I’ll wait.
Not many. Right?
It’s amazing to have a show last that long and still be able to produce some kind of new content each week.
But as most of us know, all good things must come to an end. So just like that, after 15 seasons, Supernatural is ending. The two little words every Supernatural fan has feared and dreaded since they became hooked on the show.
For the longest time I have purposely avoided thinking about the final episode but now it’s time to face that classic rock music and face the end with Sam and Dean. So many things are running through my mind right now and I can’t seem to put it to a stop.
I’ve become so overwhelmed with the amount of love and sadness I feel with tonight being the series finale of Supernatural. It’s the last time I’m going to be surprised by what Sam and Dean are able to pull off.
It’s the last time of something new from the Winchesters.
It’s simply the last time.
It’s so hard to put into words how I feel. It’s hard to put into words what this show means to me right now. I think that’s mainly because I just don’t want to admit that it’s finally here. The last one.
There is so much love and appreciation and gratitude going around for this show for the last couple of months and it makes it that much more real.
For all of us this show was our escape.
Escape from our personal lives, from work…the world.
I know personally it helped me with so much. From choosing what I wanted to do with my life, and what career I want to go for, to helping me crawl out of the dark cracks I fell into throughout the years.
Supernatural was always there.
And now with it ending, I guess it just feels like my safety net is holding on by the last string, and once we get to the end, it will just break. Much like me.
Sam and Dean have taught us so much in their journey, and it’s our job to keep those lessons alive and live them out just as Sam and Dean would.
It’s our job to Always Keep Fighting.
I don’t think a “thank you” does justice to what Jared Padalecki , Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins and Alexander Calvert have done for me and everyone involved.
But it’s all I have right now.
So, thank you.
Thank you for always being there. Thank you for being my big brothers in my time of need.
Thank you for being my rocks when I felt like I had no one to lean on.
Thank you for making me laugh when I wanted to cry.
Thank you for showing me that we all have the power to make our lives better.
Thank you for making me cry when I needed to let it out.
Thank you for making me believe in myself.
Just, thank you.
To my Supernatural Family, the fans that made it possible to have our boys on tv this long. Thank you. Thank you for being my family in times of need. We don’t know each other personally, but in a weird way we do.
Thank you for always sticking up for me and helping me realize I’m not alone.
We will never be alone.
So, let’s power through this world always kicking it in the ass, and remember to Always Keep Fighting. Just because Supernatural has come to an end, doesn’t mean we have too.
We got work to do.
