i just found literally the greatest picture of my cat
SPN’s 8x19 did something that could end up being super important – it reminded me of The Amber Spyglass.
So in Taxi Driver – with which I had a lot of issues, let me tell you – Sam hops down to Purgatory, then pushes a rock away and waltzes into Hell and back out.
The way out of Hell stays open.
This has already been flagged as important by a good number of people (esp. considering that the shot lingered on Purgatory as seen coming out of Hell) but okay, onto the parallel.
In The Amber Spyglass, Lyra defeats death and restores balance to the universe/multiverse by, essentially, negating the “importance” of (what amounts to) Hades. Christianity (Catholicism, specifically) is vitally important to the whole series and Lyra destroys the threat of death (actually, the false promise of “heaven”) by leaving a window out of Hades/Death open into a peaceful world, where ghosts can be set free, and be at peace. She delivers souls unto Heaven, unto peace and final resting.
If there’s a doorway from Hell to Purgatory open, you bet your bottom fuckin’ dollar that souls are going to find it. I’m not sure what a Hell-soul (or demon) can do in Purgatory, but if there’s a way out for a human, then maybe the mostly-human souls can hitch a ride out to Earth.
The Purgatory part is the real kicker here, too. Hades/Death in The Amber Spyglass was a huge, open cavern where ghosts just… stayed. Upon the opening of the window, the harpies agreed to lead ghosts through Hades/Death to the window, in exchange for the stories of their lives. A difficult journey, a purging journey, in order to reach a final ending.
I’m just sayin’. I’m just sayin’.
