I found #Supernatural during the darkest part of my life. To say it saved my life is an understatement. Not only did it begin an unhealthy obsession/ collection, but it gave me a new, beautiful family. I love you all so much. ❤️#SPNFamilyForever #ThankYouSupernatural pic.twitter.com/MgqTu1WGwY— mishacklecki (@mishackleckii) November 19, 2020
Some Twitterians took their time to prepare for this evening.
I love this show to pieces, ups and downs, and it's meant to much to me in a bunch of different ways. I've got several kleenex boxes ready for tonight as I get ready to say goodbye. ❤ Thank you most of all for Dean & Sam. #AKF #ThankYouSupernatural pic.twitter.com/ven1xMjh4P— carry on my wayward son || kim (@redrackham87) November 19, 2020

I found my earliest #SPN notes. The start of the road as we reach the end. But nothing really ends. We're dragon slayers & gunslingers & we'll take care of each other, #SPNFamilyForever. Thanks for riding along. Driver picks music, shotgun shuts his cake hole. Love & thanks. pic.twitter.com/qVjj2Oy45V— Eric Kripke (@therealKripke) November 19, 2020
