Caution: Spoiler ahead for Supernatural season 15

Supernatural season 15 has its say on the controversial final season of Game of Thrones, and its quite of a backhanded compliment. Despite suggestions that Game of Thrones had lost its way since surpassing George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels, there was still big publicity as the HBO series foreman into its final season. Unfortunately, the conclusion from supporters was principally negative, with Game of Thrones season 8 accused of rushing its plans, shaping moronic reference deflections, taking narrative dead end and, in some occurrences, only being too damn dark. The finale itself didn’t prove any less contentious, with a catch collect taking the throne and a strange sequence of reputation deaths.

Currently in its final season, Supernatural is going through the same process of wrapping up storylines and generating long-term character arcs to a close, all while trying to satisfy a crazed and passionate devotee basi. The Winchesters certainly haven’t skimped in the scoundrel posts for their final adventure, going up against the might of God, who has been revealed as the puppet-master of Sam and Dean‘s live and has triggered the cataclysm by opening every doorway to Hell.

Supernatural’s “Raising Hell” observes God’s reappearance since his villainous turn in the season 14 climax, and he’s suffering the effects of an Equalizer bullet from Sam. Far from full power and looking to run away from the world he’s in the process of destroying, God tours his sister, Amara, otherwise known as the Darkness. Trying to convince his sibling into helping him jaunt between natures, God begins becoming smalltalk and wreaks up that loathsome communication assassin – Game of Thrones’ final season. Apparently, the Lord Almighty was a big fan, claiming the ending was “pretty great” and, on the surface at least, this is surely a compliment to the fantasy series.

However, as all persons who watched God’s( or more specifically, Chuck’s) developing over such courses of Supernatural can attest, his appetite in narratives is not really a light affirmation. Not merely is God the prime rogue of the serial, but his primary motive is writing tales. God has been influencing the lives of Sam and Dean in order to entertain himself and when his machinations were found out, he childishly testified the end of the tale and tried to end the world. Not exactly the initiatives of a surmount storyteller.

Perhaps more damning is God’s career under the pseudonym of Chuck Shurley. Before revealing himself as the make of all things, Chuck was nothing more than a columnist who turned Sam and Dean’s undertakings into pulpy paperback stories. While the books do gather a reasonable worship following, they’re hardly best-sellers and are generally considered litter myth within the world of Supernatural. Since Chuck/ God is so often portrayed as the failed writer type, his acclaim for the final season of Game of Thrones is likely intended more as a rib than a compliment.

Of course, some might see this sly joke as a bit of a risk on Supernatural’s part, as it more is currently under pressure to deliver a satisfactory final season. Apparently, the writers must be confident in the ending they have in mind for Sam and Dean to crack a joke at Game of Thrones’ expense. In fairness, Game of Thrones’ biggest controversy in its final season was lacking the required amount of chapters to do the tale justice. Supernatural does not have that question, and there are more than fairly installments remaining to wrap up the streak in a proper manner.
