Who lived? Who died? Who has bigger issues? Supernatural’s season finale had it all as the brothers take on Lucifer and Michael.

Team Free Will has a problem on their hands in the Supernatural Season 13 finale.

The Supernatural season finale answered some questions and left us with a huge cliffhanger as we expected. Now, the brothers have a big problem come next season .

If you haven’t watched the season finale of Supernatural yet – stop here! SPOILERS AHEAD!

The episode started with Dean talking about potential retirement, digging his toes in the sand while enjoying life on the beach. It was a pipe dream, and he knew that too, but there was a smile on his face as he thought about Jack being the world’s protector.

However, one thing they seem to forget is Jack is young. He just turned 1! Jack is easily manipulated and an idealist. He wants to see the best in the world and when Lucifer shows up saying everything Jack wanted to hear, he falls for it.

As much as Sam, Dean and Castiel have all become father figures to Jack, in that moment, they couldn’t replace his real father. Jack had to learn the hard way that family doesn’t end with blood.

While he was led astray by Lucifer, Michael broke into the bunker. He planned to kill Dean, telling him he would be the first sinner he would purge from this world. Sam prayed to Jack, who heard him, and Jack headed back to save them. Jack wrecked Michael, destroying him from the inside out, making Michael’s vessel unusable.

Jack compelled Lucifer to tell him the truth and learned exactly what Lucifer is.

“You’re not my father, you’re a monster,” Jack said.

That’s when things got interesting.

As personable as Lucifer has been – and he has a way of getting people on his side – his evil side popped up, reminding everyone why he is the devil. He cut Jack’s neck and stole his grace, making Lucifer an incredible machine. Lucifer grabbed Jack and flew him away to a church with Sam getting caught in the crossfire.

Lucifer – in true sadistic fashion – told Jack and Sam they would have to fight to death in order for one of them to leave. But – in true Winchester fashion – each wanted to sacrifice themselves for the other. Jack decides it’s going to be him because he thinks Sam has a better shot at killing Lucifer, and tells Sam, “I love you. I love you all.”

It was a touching moment between the two. Sam was the one who believed in Jack from the beginning, being more of a father figure than Dean. But we didn’t get enough of these two as Jack was trapped in the alternate universe for the second half of the season.

Meanwhile, back in the bunker, Dean considered what it would take to save Sam from Lucifer. As he stared at Michael, he offered his own vessel, which is Michael’s sword.

Dean made a deal telling Michael he would stay in control of the body while Michael used it to defeat Lucifer. The fact that Dean even thought this was going to happen is silly. Michael is not good. He might be an archangel, but he has his own agenda and wants to rid the world of sinning humans.

It doesn’t make him much better than Lucifer.

But Dean agreed to allow Michael in – and the two for the price of one – went to Lucifer to save Sam and Jack. Dean showed up in glorious fashion with angel wings unfurled behind him.

We’ve been waiting so many seasons for this epic fight, and it was completely rushed through. Lucifer and Dean punched and kicked each other a few times. Then they flew in the air at each other. It looked as though Lucifer was about to win, but Sam threw Dean the archangel blade, which he managed to use just in time before Lucifer killed him.

All their years of fighting culminated in this one moment where Dean/Michael stabbed Lucifer – lasting all of about a minute. Supernatural fans deserved more.

Lucifer is dead. I’ll be sad to see Mark Pellegrino go. He was an amazing Lucifer.

Just as Sam and Dean celebrate their victory with smiles, Dean doubles over in pain. When he stands back up, his face is blank and he stares ahead.

“Thanks for the suit,” he says and flies off.

Michael is in control of Dean. In case it wasn’t obvious, Supernatural ends with Dean walking down the street in a three-piece suit and newsboy hat. His eyes glow light blue – and it freeze frames on him. Kind of a cheesy ending.

Next: When will Supernatural season 13 stream on Netflix?

Michael taking over Dean’s vessel was a bit obvious even if I kept trying to think of something else happening. Michael will be an issue into Season 14 with Sam, Jack, Mary and Bobby (hopefully), trying to figure out how to get him back.

Thirteen seasons later and Team Free Will has lost one of their members … for now.
