Supernatural fans, get your tissues ready because, from the looks of “Run Baby Run,” the extended trailer for Supernatural‘s final seven episodes, the rest of the season 15 is going to be a tearjerker. Let’s break down the information overload this teaser trailer gave us.
In the opening scene, Billie says, “I just watched a whole planet burn alive” as we flashback to 15×12 to see an asteroid hurtling through the sky with two moons in the backdrop — Chuck destroying the other Earths.
In the next clip, Sam and Dean are on high alert with some sort of spellbook in hand, as well as the bunker’s alarm system going off and smoke starting to fill the room they are in.
Billie continues, “God, he’ll be back. Soon. Could be today could be tomorrow. But when he comes, there won’t be a moment to waste.” “What else is new?” Dean snarks back.
A montage begins: we see Dean turning the key to start Baby up, Billie swinging her scythe, Sam and Dean breaking into what appears to be an abandoned shed or farmhouse, a flashback of Jack in Eden, and finally, what appears to be a young Dean’s ghost (characterized by the classic Winchester shirt layering and the Samulet) flickering into existence looking murderous. Is this suggesting some type of Chuck-induced alternate timelines or time travel?
Jack’s voice is heard saying, “I’m supposed to kill God, but I need to complete a final ritual.” During this audio bit, scenarios shown are a mangled body lying chained to a bed with the letters “LVST” written in blood on the wall, a flashback to Billie gathering Jack from the empty, and some sigils appearing on the walls of the bunker.
Directly after, Dean is seen on the bunker floor during a red alert, saying, “that’s why we’re here.”
Chuck is seen sidling down the hallway steps of the bunker bragging, “I control space and time. They think they can kill me?” A flashback to Dark Kaia’s world getting destroyed by the sweeping wave of fog is seen.
Two boys, presumably a young Sam and Dean, are seen standing outside of a chain-link fence staring mournfully at something out of frame.
Sam narrates, “My entire life, you’ve kept me safe. It’s you and me. Our last chance, our one-shot”. Scenes shown during this voiceover are Sam and Dean are seen breaking down a door aiming guns at someone off-screen, a teary-eyed Sam in the bunker, and Dean determinedly staring down the road as he drives Baby to an unknown location.
Cas is seen in front of a pickup truck with Jack in the back, wielding his angel blade at an unseen assailant off-frame. Jack seems to be wearing dress clothes – very Castiel-like in style. That better not be a crossroads!
Dean is seen crying sitting on the floor of the bunker (uh-oh) as Cas voices over, “You’re shouldering a great burden.” You can see the single tear that is about to fall.
Sam and Dean are seen entering the aforementioned abandoned farmhouse/shed as Dean says, “We don’t have a choice.” Also, I guess we will see Dean use the grenade launcher again.
We then see Jack using his powers on someone (who looks like they have red hair… Charlie?) as his eyes light up in his patented Nephilim yellow. The look on Jack’s face is a mix of concern and worry. What does he have to do?
Dean narrates, “The whole mission is saving the world. ” Bobby, though it’s unknown if it’s a resurrected Bobby or an apocalypse-world Bobby, is seen looking visibly shocked.
What appears to be Sam’s hand is seen blasting a banishing sigil. We flashback to the angels falling in the season 8 finale. Chuck is shown smiling at someone whose back is turned to the camera and snapping.
Jack’s voice is heard saying, “This is where it ends.” Sam is seen looking distressed. Sam, Dean, and Cas are shown getting blasted back by something (or someone) in the bunker while under red alert.
Billie is seen ominously banging on one of the bunker doors, scythe in hand looking impatient.
Cas urgently but determinedly carries an injured Dean down the bunker hallway.
Another flashback of Jack in Eden is seen with him screaming, his hands over his ears. Finally, Dean is seen sitting in Baby staring at someone off-screen and gravely saying, “It’s time.”
The final title screen credit is shown and the fandom cries.
While no one knows how Supernatural will bring an end to its fantastic 15-season run, these trailers indicate that it will be a wild ride. Supernatural‘s final episodes will begin airing October 8. The cast is currently in Vancouver filming the final episode.
