The final episode of Supernatural has aired, and the cast of the show have shared messages and photos with fans to say their goodbye.

It was long in the works due to delays with the ongoing health crisis, but the finale of Supernatural has finally hit people’s screens in the US.

The show’s great success saw it span across 15 years and provide fans with both laughs and tears, as they followed the Winchester brothers’ story.

Now that it’s come to an end, it’s time to look back at the show’s highlights.

What are the cast’s best memories?

Before the finale aired on The CW, an hour special, looking back at the previous 15 seasons, was also shown to celebrate how far it had come.

However, some of the cast took to social media to share their personal memories from the show and say their own goodbyes to Supernatural and the fans.

Jensen Ackles

In the lead up to the show airing, Jensen Ackles gave fans a glimpse at him dressing up as Dean Winchester for the final time.

“Alright, it’s my last time dressing up as Dean Winchester while filming Supernatural… at least for now,” he said. “Lace these boots up one last time before I retire them.”

Ackles had previously said that he hadn’t figured out how he’d handle the finale airing, but confirmed it was “gonna be messy”.

Jared Padalecki

Jared Padalecki, on the other hand, kept relatively quiet about the episode, with Sam and Dean’s fate about to be sealed. That being said, when the time finally came, he shared a post showing a united front with fans, saying “I’m here with y’all”.

Misha Collins

Popular angel Castiel graced fans’ screens for the first time in Season 4, and has grown to be a firm fan favorite.

Misha Collins, who played the character, shared a behind the scenes image with Ackles the day before the finale aired, explaining the difficulty he had filming some of his last scenes on set.

He also showed the before and after effect of the show to fans on Instagram. His children joined him for the first time to watch a whole episode – probably not the best way to start – with the actor himself saying he would have “a lot of explaining to do”.

However, it was the after picture that got fans even more emotional about saying goodbye to the show, with the star showing red eyes. He tagged both Ackles and Padalecki in the caption, ending it with: “Love you guys.”

Alexander Calvert

Having taken on the role of Jack from season 12, Alexander Calvert soon became a part of Supernatural’s main cast. After his final episode of season 15, Calvert tweeted a message to fans, saying thank you “for embracing Jack from episode one and loving him for who he was trying to be all along”.

That wasn’t all for the actor though, as he took to Instagram before the show’s finale, reposting memories to his story. Most of these were from cinematographer Brad Creasser, who also shared more behind the scenes content of the group.

Though it’s yet to air in other countries, support from the cast and fans hasn’t gone unnoticed, showing just how big the show has been.

While it may have come to an end, it’s clear the legacy of Supernatural will carry on for many more years.

Spider-Verse producer wants Spider-Man: Miles Morales glitches in sequel

The transformational glitches in Spider-Man: Miles Morales are pretty hilarious. So hilarious, in fact, that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s producer, screenplay and story writer, Phil Lord, wants to use them in the hit movie’s sequel.

Lord and his filmmaking duo, Christopher Miller, are no strangers to animation or comedy. With titles like Spider-Verse, Lego Movie, and 21 Jump Street under their shared filmmaking belt, it’s no wonder that the two are unafraid of getting a little weird with the animated Spider-Man flick’s sequel.

And if you want inspiration for red and blue weirdness, look no further than the Miles Morales game. Playable on PS4 and PS5, the title has apparently been a massive success, with 97 percent of Google users enjoying it. While people are typically annoyed with launch day bugs, the issues with this one are just too funny to chastise. 

With weird, viral videos of players transforming into various inanimate objects, it was actually a transformation of a patio heater that caught Lord’s eye. Now, it appears that “Heater Parker” could become a reality in Spider-Verse 2.

Since the original Spider-Verse movie was chock-full of absurdities and goofy odes to different genres or pop-culture references, invoking a video game’s glitch should be no problem. And, as far as content goes, few things evoke comedic surrealism as much as a patio heater using a web to swing from building to building in New York City.

For Lord, at least, the randomized development mistake appears too funny to ignore as film inspiration: “We’re putting this in Spider-Verse 2 if we have any self-respect at all.”

Hopefully, he and Miller have as much self-respect as the title’s developers, Insomniac Games, have humility. In response to Lord’s tweet, which has since gone viral, the game’s makers couldn’t help but acknowledge their imperfections with a pun.

While we were under the impression that patio heaters were meant to heat patios, not hearts, the Insomniac reflection remains accurate: this silly, inanimate object glitch is “equally as embarrassing as it is heartwarming.”

But, above all else, they’re just funny. It could legitimately be one of gaming and cinema’s greatest, most randomly inspired crossovers if Spider-Verse 2 involves an alternate dimensional Heater Parker.
