Do you want a reason to worry over a character’s possible future on “Supernatural” season 8, you’re going to get it courtesy of an upcoming episode title. Then again, maybe all hearing this will do to you is force you to picture Michael Scott reinvent the identically-titled song into “Goodbye, Toby.”
According to a report coming in via SpoilerTV, the episode that is coming up near the end of the season (as it is episode #17) will be carrying with it the ominous moniker of “Goodbye, Stranger.” What could this mean? There are a number of possibilities, and not all of them suggest that a character could be saying farewell to the show:
1. This could just be an allusion to a goodbye that actually happens within the episode. Isn’t that more than a little bit possible?
2. It may not have anything to do with someone leaving at all, and it could just be a reference to the aforementioned song.
3. We do end up losing a character that we already know, but given that the title includes the word “stranger,” how well could we really know them to begin with?
We’re hesitant at the moment to think that we could be on the cusp of seeing a big goodbye happen here on the show, if for no other reason than that it feels almost too obvious for the show to give an episode this title only to later pull the rug out from under viewers all over the country.
Do you think there is any specific representation going on with this title? We want to hear any and all theories below! If you want to hear some more news pertaining to what Misha Collins’ character of Castiel is going to be up to on the show moving forward, you can do so over at the link here.
