The Supernatural Season 7 finale is almost here, and their is one big question on everyone’s mind (especially mine).
What will be the ultimate fate of Bobby?
When Castiel vanished early on in the season, most fans agreed that Castiel would come back. After all, he’s an angel – despite being a fallen one. However, when Bobby died, there were only two things that could happen: Bobby would stay dead or through some supernatural story arc Bobby would return.
Sadly, Bobby returned as a ghost. Personally, I was hoping for a return similar to that of Sam when he returned from hell. At first, Bobby was just around to help Sam and Dean, while his spirit was bound to his old drinking flask. Now, Bobby is quickly becoming a vengeful spirit – seeking out Dick Roman’s death at all costs. He injured Charlie (Felicia Day) when going after Dick and now he’s causing Poltergeist-level chaos whenever the Winchesters don’t obey his orders.
Sam may be ready to put Bobby’s spirit to rest, but Dean is still hoping that Bobby can be saved. After all, Bobby is helping the Winchesters in their Leviathan hunt in his own angry-ghost sort of way. At the least, Dean doesn’t want to be the one to wipe Bobby from the WInchesters’ lives forever.
There’s going to be a major showdown in the Supernatural Season 7 finale, and potentially the Leviathans may finally be destroyed or sent back to some eternal prison. Of course, first Sam and Dean will have to get Crowley’s blood from Dick. Unfortunately, Dick has imprisoned Crowley. When Bobby does show up in the finale, he could be used as the diversion the Winchesters need to get Crowley’s blood. However, if they do manage to chop off the head of the Leviathans, they’ll then need to decide what to do with Bobby.
Remember, whenever Bobby gets closer to Dick his rage only increases. And, then he loses control. He’s already engaging in body possession, something I never imagined Bobby would do. The final showdown will no doubt push Bobby over the edge. Once the Leviathans are gone, it will be Sam and Dean vs Bobby. Sadly, the Winchesters won’t simply be able to burn Bobby’s flask since it’s now in the angry spirit’s possession.
Perhaps, this would be a good time for Castiel to step in and come up with a solution. Too bad, he’s turned into a hippie of sorts similar to the flash forward episode two seasons back of Sam dressed in white as a Lucifer who had won the war.
While the future may not be clear for the Winchesters or Bobby going into Supernatural Season 8, one thing is imminent. The Alpha will return.
In Episode 7.22, “There Will be Blood”, the Alpha says, “See you next season.” Dean replies, “Looking forward to it.” Needless to say, Dean may regret those words.
