Welcome back to Humor Nation. There is no show that has never committed a mistake. Making mistakes is a part of the learning process. When Supernatural first started, the show creators were unsure about the format of the show. In the beginning, the storyline mainly focused on the monster of the week while keeping the relationship of the brothers secondary. However, as the show progressed, the brothers’ dynamic became the main focus of the show. Surely, there were monsters and hunters, but it’s the theme of love, brotherhood, family between the brothers which became primary. A big credit to the success of the show goes to the writers who came up with refreshing and original content every week. But the same writers have to be blamed for committing certain grave mistakes which affected the show in the long run.
So Take A Look At 5 Biggest Mistakes The TV Show Supernatural Ever Did
5. DROPPING CERTAIN STORYLINES
There’s no doubt that the reason Supernatural kept its viewers hooked to the screen for 15 long years is because of its unique and entertaining storylines. The show reinvented itself time and time again while keeping its essence same. But one big criticism of the show is lack of following up on certain promising storylines. The writers came up with some really amazing story arcs, but they all were dropped abruptly and were never mentioned again. This inconsistency angered the fans who wanted to see more of a storyline, but the storyline was ended without an explanation.
In the early seasons, Azazel reveals his master plan of selecting a psychic child who will lead the demon army in the apocalypse for Lucifer. He even arranges a tournament where only one Psychic Child will make out alive. Even though Jack emerges victorious by killing Sam, but Sam is resurrected thanks to Dean’s deal. Azazel dies in a fight with the Winchesters and the demon army thing is never mentioned again. Also, thanks to Azazel, Sam Winchester has demonic powers which he utilizes pretty effectively against the demons early in the series, but all his powers suddenly vanish and he never utilizes them again in the later season. Speaking of demons and Lucifer, the Antichrist Jesse Turner was supposed to play a really big role in the apocalypse, but thanks to the Winchesters talk, the boy has a change of heart. But what’s surprising is we never hear any mention of Jesse Turner ever again. His reappearance later in the final seasons where Jack Kline, the Nephilim is present could have resulted in an entertaining dynamic.
