As is my usual M.O., I’ve not read any of the spoilers I’ve seen floating around about Season 6. I can’t guarantee I’ll remain strong throughout the looooong summer, but for now I want to go in prepared to be surprised. So, with that, if any of you have read those spoilers and I’m so far off the map I’m in a different country, feel free to point and laugh.
It’s not like I’m gonna know you’re doing it. *wink*
As I think about where they go from here, I am taking into account where they’ve been and who they are, and I’m hoping that the writers are inclined to proceed with as much continuity as possible. So, first, let’s take the state of the world. Yes, the Apocalypse was averted. Armageddon (aka the grudge match of the millennia) didn’t go down. However, two Archangels fell into Hell, trapped in the cage that had held Lucifer prisoner for centuries.
That’s gotta wreak havoc on a cosmic level.
We know Sam got out, but we don’t know how, and we don’t know if he left Adam/Michael back in there and we don’t know what happened to Lucifer. The sheer weight of what we don’t know is enough to squish my paltry little speculations.
But, I’m gonna give it a go anyway.
Here’s where I’m starting: God pulled Sam (our Sam; not Demon!Sam, not Ghost!Sam, flesh-and-blood Sam Winchester) out of the pit (as a reward, perhaps, or maybe just one of His Mysterious Ways). Lucifer and Michael are still in the cage. I’m not really sure about Adam, and right now can’t really be bothered to worry about him. He either got saved, too, and is in Heaven with his mom like he wanted to be (which, yay!) or he didn’t and it will be a S6 plot point to rescue him in some fashion.
But I’m also saying that God left Michael and Lucifer to spend some quality time together in that cage, perhaps as punishment for not behaving in the first place and for playing all of the chess pieces they could to almost bring His world to an end. Who knows?
The point is, if they’re both trapped down there, then the bad guys and are free to run amuck here on Earth and, as Cas told Dean before he boffed out of the Impala, there’s anarchy in Heaven, so there’s no one to really keep the bad guys in check. Cosmically speaking, anyway.
Evil doesn’t end, really. But! Neither does good. Which brings me first to Dean.
