Not even close,
not even a little bit,
not even at all.
Jensen Ackles speaks onstage at the “Supernatural” panel during the El Rey Network portion of the 2014 Summer Television Critics Association
Bonus Pat on the Back from Jared:
One of the biggest problems with Supernatural ending… is that it will need to have an amazing ending… and I don’t know whether a satisfying ending to this story is even possible… :/
I was just talking about this with someone. Supernatural has been such a depressing show, that I really feel most fans need for it to end on a note of hope. Otherwise, the whole journey feels depressing and hopeless (and even pointless). Maybe Sam and Dean are never free of hunting or have families, but It could be an opened-ended ending so that everyone can imagine their own ideas about what became of Sam and Dean.
I know the boys think a Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid type ending is the only way (because a lot of men think its so cool and honorable to die in a blaze of glory), but I hope not—I would hate that kind of ending. I wish we could explain to them why that would be such a dissatisfying and even predictable ending (since that’s the one everyone talks about). I think that would make watching reruns and the DVDs hard, watching everything the boys have been through to know in the end they die bloody and sad (and even if that’s how you think they end, we don’t have to see it happen).
But, if it ended the way it began, w/the boys throwing their weapons in the trunk of the Impala and screen going black when the trunk shuts (or something similar), at least we can have some kind of hope and the freedom to envision it however we please. Personally, I like to envision them as the Bobbys of the Bunker. Helping out the young hunters that come along.
All I know is, I sincerely hope it does not end tragically or with them dying. I just don’t think I could go back and re-watch the show if that happens.
Dean: There’s no such thing as an honorable death. My corpse is going to rot in the ground and my family is going to die! (In My Time of Dying)
100% yes to all of the above!!!
