This past year, fans of Supernatural have had a front-row seat to the end of the world. Finally, after months of living through all the terrors that the book of Revelation contains, it all comes down to tonight’s episode as Sam and Dean have to battle Heaven, Hell, angels and demons in order to rescue the civilization from impending doom.

With series creator Eric Kripke penning the script for tonight’s ethereal showdown, there’s no doubt that the fifth season finale of Supernatural, entitled “Swan Song,” will live up to fans expectations.

The entire season has been leading up to this showdown between good and evil.  With the Apocalypse looming, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) realize they are out of options and make heart-breaking decisions that will change their lives forever.  A beloved character is killed.

While I’m all for spoilers, I think maybe The CW was stepping over the line a tad when they revealing that a major character is going to be killed off. Although, perhaps in their cunning way, their eluding to the death of a “beloved character” could be but a mere drop in the demonic bucket compared to what’s to come.

That being said, I don’t think fans of the series will be happy to see any of their favorite characters in Supernatural killed off, even if a battle of epic proportion occurs – especially if it’s Castiel. Especially if it’s Castiel.

As you mull over who may, or may not, make it to the sixth season of Supernatural, take a look at the episodic photo gallery below.

From the looks of it, Sam and Dean have to quickly resolve whatever argument they’re having in the make-shift graveyard because the Devil, after drawing pitchforks on the windows, wants to have “a word” with Sam.

What word will it be? Perhaps “yes?”

I have to admit, the absence of every other Supernatural character from these photos has my mind racing. I do not want anyone to die. Considering Supernatural has one of the highest body-counts on television, I know that’s impossible.

But, for this one episode, can’t we all just get along?

What do you think will happen in the season finale of Supernatural? ? Who is the “beloved character” that’s going to die?

Tune into the fifth season finale of Supernatural tonight, @9pm, on The CW
