Supernatural season 12 finale spoilers below

A Farewell To The King Of Hell
Pure Fandom

The season 12 finale of "Supernatural" aired Thursday, May 18th and boy was it a kicker. First of all, I know I'm a little late to the party with this, but I just watched the episode, so here we are. This episode hit me harder than the season 2 finale of 90210 (and that's saying something because that episode shredded me. So many bad things...so many).

Supernatural's twelfth season concluded with many deaths (as per usual), but it seems like this time, some are going to stick. Before I get into that, I'm going to give you all a quick summery of what happened in this episode, in terms of deaths.

The first death we see is that of Rowena, and let me tell you, I am so angry about the way that went down. Rowena, Crowley's mother who happens to be a witch, was killed by Lucifer and all we got from the was seeing a burnt and shrived body on the ground that did not belong to actress Ruth Connell. Here's the thing about "Supernatural," death is something that doesn't stick very often, so there is a possibility that Rowena will come back. However, if this really was her end, she deserved a death that was at least shown on screen.

Then, later in the episode, a rift in time had opened a portal to another dimension where Bobby is still alive and kicking (I miss Bobby) and Sam and Dean were never even born. So, as a way to defeat Lucifer again, they decide to trap him in this alternate dimension where everything is already terrible, so how bad can adding Lucifer to the mix be? In order to do this, someone has to die so CROWLEY SACRIFICES HIMSELF. Ugh, more on that later. Then Lucifer ends up getting back into the regular dimension, kills Castiel (I'm not even worried), and stirs up more trouble. Mary (Sam and Dean's mother who has recently come back to life) then forces Lucifer back into the other dimension and the rift closes, trapping them both inside. Oh, and Lucifer's nephilim spawn in born as a full sized human and Kelly dies as well.

So let's start with who is most likely not staying dead. Castiel will be back no doubt. Misha Collins has signed on for season 13. Lucifer the character will probably come back in some form, even if he's not played by Mark Pellegrino. Mary Winchester will probably be back, even if it is just in flash backs. And Rowena is the big maybe. Now, let's go to who is definitely dead for good. Kelly is gone and I doubt anyone cares (sorry). She was only a relevant character while she was pregnant and now that the baby is out, there's no need for her. And lastly and sadly, Crowley is officially dead and gone, which brings me to my main point of this article/ rant.

Mark Sheppard officially announced that his character Crowley, the King of Hell, will never be returning. He tweeted "There are NO plans to have me return to SPN at ANY juncture." Crowley has been with us since season 5 of Supernatural and he will continue to be one of the most favored characters even though he is gone.

So, I would like to say goodbye and thank you to Mark Sheppard and to Crowley. Thank you for being a fantastic character with amazing depth and amazing sass. I will miss the humor and smartassery he brought to any situation he was in. Crowley was one of the best kinds of villains because he made himself likably bad. He may have gone a little soft by demon standards from time to time, but he made sure to remind us every now and then that he was remarkably bad ass. What l will miss the most never being able to here your trademark line of "Hello, boys" again.

Thank you for your weird relationship with the Winchesters and Castiel, thank you for your many schemes that never seemed to work out the exact way you wanted them to, and thank you for sticking with us for eight years.

Crowley, you will be missed.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
