Episode(s) 5.04 The End



Future!Chuck represents Chuck Shurley five years into the future of 2009. During his era in 2014, Lucifer's minions re-release the Croatoan demon virus - in this post-apocalyptic world, most humans have been reduced to murderous zombies. Chuck is at Camp Chitaqua with Future!Dean, Future!Castiel and other survivors. Future!Chuck is in charge of supplies. Toilet paper, he informs Dean, is 'like gold'. A display on a dilapidated movie theatre advertises "Route 666" indicating that one of Chuck's "Supernatural" books was made into a movie. Future!Chuck's fate is unknown. Future!Dean leads an attack against Lucifer, in which he uses his team, including Future!Castiel and others, as a decoy. The team is presumed to have been killed, or turned, by "croats", and Future!Dean is killed by Lucifer. The survivors at the camp may be overrun following this disaster, but this is not shown.


  • There was mixed opinion amongst fans as to whether the future shown here is "real" or merely constructed by Zachariah to persuade Dean to become Michael's Vessel. In the commentary to the episode on the Season 5 DVD Eric Kripke and Ben Edlund describe how initially the episode was going to involve time travel, but the premise became so complicated (they descirbe drawing it on a whiteboard to explain to Bob Singer who retorted - "You going to do that for the veiwers?") that they changed it to an alternate universe model.
