Could Sam and God’s matching bullet wounds in Supernatural eventually part the Winchester brothers and lead immediately to Sam becoming a villain? In Supernatural’s season 14 finale, God crafted the Equalizer gun as part of his manipulation of the Winchesters, egging them on to kill Jack. Since the youngster is a nephilim, the shoot was made to work against utterly any being, and this is where God’s plan disappeared awry. After Sam and Dean roared Chuck’s ruse, Sam filmed a missile at Earth’s Lord and Savior, making him firmly in the shoulder. Strangely, Sam recoiled and cowered as if he had been affect in exactly the same place.

The toll of that gash is now becoming clear, as both God and Sam Winchester struggle with their reflected wraps in Supernatural season 15. Sam is physically disturbed with the sorenes caused by the circular, blackened contusion and even the celestial spell of Castiel was unable to constitute things better. Instead, Castiel claimed to have never felt an vigor like it. While Sam may be hampered by a absces shoulder, God appears to be restricted to a far graver stretch. The Equalizer has chipped apart part of God’s powers, leaving him unable to traverse cosmoes at will. Trapped on Earth and not shooting on all cylinders, God is baffled, and a frustrated God is not good news for the Winchester brothers.

But what could these matching meanders want as Supernatural cannons towards its final ever bout? Showrunner, Andrew Dabb, has described the hurts as a “string” connecting the two tin cans that are God and Sam Winchester, while also hinting that the link will have both advantages and drawbacks for the brothers. The pros of the situation are clear – Sam and Dean have a direct line to their arch enemy if they can figure out how to use it. Nonetheless, it’s the drawbacks that could play into Supernatural’s finale and Sam’s taunted villain turn.

The Equalizer doesn’t really attack a person’s body but their soul, and Supernatural has explored previously how Sam turned freezing and heartless when lack access to the soul district. The gists might be slower and less drastic when exclusively a piece of Sam is missing, but it still opens the door for evil Sam, as glimpsed in various visions throughout season 15, to make an appearance. More speculatively, the wound’s black outline examines distinctly like some kind of virus. If the Equalizer’s damage can sap apart God’s power, and an angel’s power is directly connected to their spirit, Sam Winchester‘s spirit is likely to be gradually declining away with each incident. This would perhaps explain his evident anger at heedless civilians in “Atomic Monsters.”

Secondly, while the missile meander might have been the Winchesters with an penetration into what God has up his sleeve, it could also give the deity an opportunity to corrupt Sam. The misfortune account of Sam that appeared previously in a dream cycle appeared to possess incredible dominance, brought on by his demon-infused blood. Sam’s demonic clairvoyant abilities have been dormant for the better part of ten seasons, and even when the youngest Winchester lost his soul and honesty, he didn’t fall back into the habit of using demon abilities. Clearly, something or someone must act as a provoke to bring back Sam’s superpowers, and God has both the ability and opportunity to do so. Chuck’s desire to give the Winchesters a dark cease to their story provides the final part of the riddle – a motivation.

Arguably the biggest question encircling the Equalizer wounds is whether either God or Sam will be killed as a result. Certainly, God doesn’t seem too worried by his injury, and is more harassed by not being at full power. Similarly, Supernatural is unlikely to end with only one Winchester brother dying, since witness know that Dean will go to any lengths to resurrect his brother, and therefore the legend would remain inconclusive. The bullet meanders may be unlikely to spell the end of God or Sam, but they could result in a demise so bad for the Winchester brothers – Sam and Dean being forced to throw down in a fight to the death.
