Supernatural‘s showrunner Sera Gamble didn’t want fans to think the writers have forgotten about Death’s prophecy last season that it would force Dean into a deal. With the episode “Appointment in Samarra,” Death’s reappearance may in fact provide another linchpin for the turbulent season’s main conflict: Souls.

Supernatural was set to be that show, but alas pressures from CW executives caused the show to continue with a sixth season against Creator/Showrunner Eric Kripke’s wishes. Thus, Kripke stopped writing and directing episodes after season 5.

So of course, almost every SPN fan expected this season to fail, which is why I decided to give the season a shot anyway. Couldn’t hurt right? Not exactly: (Caution: Spoilers Ahead!)
