Supernatural Season 14, Episode 17 delivered plenty of twists and turns. One of the big questions we currently have is whether a certain character is really dead or not. Caution: There are spoilers!

We were certainly sent for a wild ride in Supernatural Season 14, Episode 17. The ending gave us all sorts of questions we’d need to wait at least a week for the answers. However, there are some that are worth speculating about.

One of those surrounds the very end and a potential death. For those who haven’t seen the episode yet, you’ll want to check it out first. There are spoilers in this post.

There were actually two potential deaths in Supernatural Season 14, Episode 17. The one we’re talking about here is the first one that may have happened — the one that seemed to happen on screen.

That’s right! It’s all about Nick.

At long last, we got to see Nick’s storyline come to the only end it could have. There was no way he was just going to stay locked in a jail cell somewhere. He was always going to be like Gordon Walker and would find a way to escape. Unlike Gordon, he didn’t have killing Sam Winchester in mind but resurrecting Lucifer.

That’s exactly what happened during the episode. Lucifer came back and it looked like we’d be dealing with the devilish archangel again. However, Jack saw to that. With his powers and his soulless state, he had no qualms about killing Nick, literally burning him through.

So, is this it? As much as I’m sad to say goodbye to Mark Pellegrino, I do hope it is. I mostly enjoyed Lucifer/Nick’s storyline but with next season being the last, I don’t want too much time spent on a storyline that didn’t seem to be going anywhere. If the writers could figure out something exciting and intriguing to do with Nick then sure, go ahead, but I didn’t feel like the ideas were there.

Besides, this was nephilim vs. human. If Nick isn’t dead after being broken into pieces and burned through by a nephilim then this wouldn’t be realistic, even for Supernatural. It would suggest that Jack isn’t the strongest, most dangerous being in the universe.

While it’s clear that Pellegrino isn’t gone (he appears in the next episode), it does look like Nick is gone. I get the feeling that this Nick is going to be a voice in Jack’s ear, like a devil on his shoulder.
