'No rest for the Wicked'

Apparently Mr. Kripke (aka master of the Supernatural land=) had wanted 'No rest for the wicked' as a tag line for the show from the very start.

Personally I think that'd have rocked. And a small selfish part of me keep thinking that if the CW had only caved on that (instead of 'ghosts just got sexy') we might not have had to endure the finale of season three. Because, you know, sure it was a mind blowing, beautiful (cinematography and dialogue and story wise), fast paced, classic SPN, dark, and cliffy episode. BUT it left millions of fans out there shell shocked and muttering words that held no meaning. CLIFFHANGER MUCH?

Don't worry, won't leave any spoilers here... Just saying. It was cruel and evil and plotted, and positively genious.

Course, they knew they'd been renewed. More importantly perhaps Eric's got a plan. A five year plan. And he knows where to take the show, thank whoever's watching, and we are not risking to fall into a tragic grey's pattern of back and forth and nothingness.

As for cast updates (look away if you're not up to date post 3.15) Bela Talbot has bowed out of the show for the last time. The character that didn't really bring much of anything that brought the storyline forward to the show got a graceful and, honestly, quite wicked ending. From the add-on that stirred such dramz in the fan circles, Bela is now running the chance of being remembered quite fondly as the antagonist and evil bitch lord that... well... you know. Hell hath no fury and all that. Furthermore Lauren Cohan did a great job throughout the season despite being thrown a role that wasn't even supposed to be re-occuring, and is headed for a great career... Looking forward to seeing her (in other settings).

As for Ruby and Bobby, they're both staying on. Katie and Jim have both put in nice performances over the year, and will continue to be re-occuring in season four.

All in all, the latter part (post 3.7 ish) of the third season had Supernatural steadily heading back to the cult classic's roots and by the very end we were back to the good ol' school Kripke ways of intensity, lore, and darkness, and of course the brothers. As one of the few shows actually heading in a steady direction ever since the pilot, the next two years of the five year plan promise to be just as addictive and high class.

Not to mention, will someone be giving Jensen Ackles an emmy, or a film role with Oscar promise, anytime soon? The man is underrated in the awards circles. Seriously, give him something big screen to chew on!
