‘Supernatural’ season 8, ‘Arrow’ finales to have same title

SupernaturalHere’s to some brand continuity: there’s no guarantee that it will stay this way (given that episode titles can change, and that they are not always reportedly accurately), but for now The CW’s Wednesday-night lineup on May 15 is going to be two episodes with the same name: “Sacrifice.”

You may have heard recently that this is the title for a certain episode of “Supernatural” season 8, and now we can confirm that the “Arrow” finale is also going to have the same name attached to it. What does this mean? The answer is pretty simple: some of these characters are going to have to give up what is valuable to them in order to get what they want. Does this mean death? When you consider the shows that we are talking about here, that’s always a possibility.

When it comes to “Supernatural,” the real candidates are all of the recurring characters, given that the show has killed off so many before / sent them to various other worlds. One person, save for Sam and Dean of course, who we know is safe is Misha Collins, who was promoted recently to series regular for season 9 as Castiel.

As for the “Arrow” finale, the list of suspects is much larger. Considering that Emily Bett Rickards was recently promoted to series regular for season 2, she along with another new series regular in Colton Haynes (Roy Harper) are not dying, and it’s fair to say that both Oliver and Laurel are also safe. However, nearly everyone else is in some danger, and we worry constantly about Moira and Diggle, with the latter being in jeopardy simply because he is a new character to the universe who is not in the comics.

Let’s get away from this finale speculation for now; if you want to have a fun sort of “Where’s Waldo?” game with the “Supernatural” cast photo, you can do so over at the link here.
