The famous American fantasy horror TV series had been throwing hints regarding Jensen Ackles’ new character for quite some time. However, the show had been teasing the events of the May 17 season 13 finale since as long as season five. The patience has undoubtedly paid off.
The Supernatural Season 13 finale finally answered some anticipated questions and left the fans with an expected cliffhanger. Now, the protagonist brothers have a huge problem to face in the coming season. After several days of sheer speculation has finally been confirmed who the Jensen’s second Supernatural character would be. It will be no one but Michael.
In order to defeat the stronger than ever Lucifer, Dean Winchester and Michael formed a group which seems set to have perilous end results.
The intriguing episode started off with Dean discussing potential retirement while enjoying digging his toes in the sand on the beach. He knew that it was a pipe dream, but he was smiling as he reflected about Jack being the protector of the world.
Although, they appear to have forgotten an important thing that Jack is too young. The one-year-old jack is an idealist who is easily manipulated. Since he wishes to see the best in the world, when Lucifer tells him everything he hopes to hear, he falls hook, line, and sinker for it.
Even though Sam, Castiel, and Dean have become like fathers to Jack, at that very moment, they could not replace Jack’s birth father. Jack learns the hard way that family is not restricted to blood. Michael breaks into the bunker while Lucifer leads Jack astray. Jack destroys Michael and wrecks him. After that, Jack forces Lucifer to reveal the truth to him, and thereby he learns what Lucifer exactly is. Jack tells him that he is not his father and calls him a monster.
Considering how conniving and evil Lucifer is, his dark side crops up and reminds everyone why he is the devil. He slashes Jack’s neck and takes his grace. This makes Lucifer an inconceivable machine. He grabs Jack and takes him away to a church while Sam gets stuck in the crossfire.
Dean defeats Lucifer by using the Sword of Michael and by becoming his true vessel. Michael thanks Dean for “the suit” and takes over Dean’s body to cause all kinds of destruction in the Main Universe.

As expected, fans reacted strongly to this enormous cliffhanger. Several fans praised Jensen for his fantastic acting.
Unpopular opinion but I kinda like this. We never saw this option in season 5. I’m interested in this plot wise. Seeing how this shows Sam Jack and Cas all helping Dean get rid of him, and I’m so excited for Jensen’s acting #Supernatural

The showrunner of supernatural, Andrew Dabb, had dropped hints at this twist of Michael taking over Dean previously this month. He had revealed that the new role of Jensen would be not only unexpected but also kind of a long time coming. He had added that in 13 years Jensen has become used to playing Dean and he does a stupendous job at it.
Fans will have to wait for the next season to find out for how long this duality will last. No exact date for Season 14 has been announced yet, but it is not expected to release until autumn.
