Editor's Note: This article was written on May 25, 2016, at the time "We Happy Few" first aired. Continuing our retrospective look at season 11, we are sharing this with you now, so you can relive the excitement, suspense and emotion of not knowing the season finale. So take a trip back in time to having just watched 11.22, and enjoy!

"In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins." — Ulysses S. Grant

In this last penultimate episode, many felt that all was lost, that many things had been ruined for them for different reasons.
I wish I could make them feel better simply by sharing how I see the show but it is not that simple. People look at things differently and my words are not enough in those parts they hold dear. From my side, I have faith things will be well and I eagerly wait for the stories that are yet to be told. The stories and the imagination behind them mean the most to me. Even though I am more of a Dean girl, I do hold the flag also for Sam, Castiel, Crowley and even those characters who do not make a good impression on me. I give them a chance to grow on me - but this is not an easy task because if people treat the characters or actors badly I feel I need to defend them. In the fandom, this very easily leads to conflicts.

I wrote before that Don't Call Me Shurley felt more like the real season finale for me. Jensen and Jared had also said that. There was turmoil and trouble behind the scenes and the three final episodes could have been better without that drama. I agree also that some things during the past year could have been better. I still have hope, though, because of the friendship between the cast and the crew. That gets me over the misshaps that happen. If you look at the premise of "We Happy Few" to be like an "Ocean's Eleven" teamup, I can see the alliance as a great idea. A team of special and contradictory individuals fighting against a common enemy. It would have just needed more episodes to be presented. The fan video I selected is pretty great and presents the sense of "Ocean's Eleven" well.

This is my last fan video article for season 11. I hope you join me again next season!

Enjoy!

This Is War by 30 Seconds To Mars

A warning to the people,
The good and the evil,
This is war.

To the soldier, the civilian,
The martyr, the victim,
This is war.

It's the moment of truth, and the moment to lie,
The moment to live and the moment to die,
The moment to fight, the moment to fight
To fight, to fight, to fight!

To the right, To the left
We will fight to the death!
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world
From the last to the first

To the right, To the left
We will fight to the death!
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world
It's a brave new world!

A warning to the prophet,
The liar, the honest,
This is war.

To the leader, the pariah,
The victor, the messiah,
This is war.

It's the moment of truth, and the moment to lie,
The moment to live and the moment to die,
The moment to fight, the moment to fight,
To fight, to fight, to fight!

To the right, To the left
We will fight to the death!
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world
From the last to the first

To the right, To the left
We will fight to the death!
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world
It's a brave new world
It's a brave new world!

I do believe in the light
Raise your hands into the sky
The fight is done, the war is won
Lift your hands toward the sun
Toward the sun
Toward the sun
Toward the sun
The war is won

To the right, To the left
We will fight to the death!
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world
From the last to the first

To the right, To the left
We will fight to the death!
To the edge of the earth
It's a brave new world
It's a brave new world
It's a brave new world!

A brave new world
The war is won
The war is won
A brave new world

30 Seconds To Mars, (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band consists of Jared Leto (lead vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards), Shannon Leto (drums, percussion) and Tomo Miličević (lead guitar, bass, violin, keyboards, other instruments).

The band's debut album, 30 Seconds to Mars (2002), was produced by Bob Ezrin and released to positive reviews but only to limited commercial success. The band achieved worldwide fame with the release of their second album A Beautiful Lie (2005), which received multiple certifications all over the world, including platinum in the United States. Their next release, This Is War (2009), showed a dramatic evolution in the band's musical style, as they incorporated experimental music as well as eclectic influences. The recording process of the album was marked by a legal dispute with record label EMI that eventually became the subject of the documentary film Artifact (2012). Thirty Seconds to Mars then moved to Universal Music and released the fourth album, Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams (2013), to critical and commercial success. As of September 2014, the band has sold over 15 million albums worldwide.

Thirty Seconds to Mars has consistently enjoyed sold out tours and numerous headlining festival slots. The band is noted for its energetic live performances and for fusing many music genres. They have been compared to the sounds of bands such as Pink Floyd, The Cure, Tool, and U2, for their philosophical and spiritual lyrics, concept albums and their use of experimental music. Thirty Seconds to Mars has received several awards and accolades throughout their career, including a Guinness World Record, and has been included in the Kerrang! list of best artists of the 2000s.
Quotes:

Dean: I tried to kill her. And it didn't work.
Chuck: Maybe it didn't work because you didn't want it to work. Maybe you didn't want to kill her.
Sam: You want God to kill Amara because you don't want Amara to be killed?
Dean: Yeah, maybe there's a part of me that just can't hurt her. But if she's already dead...
Sam: Then she's already dead. Right.
Sam: We talked about this. It's time to do the smart thing.
Dean: So, what am I supposed to do, just sit by and watch?
Sam: No. We're both in this fight. You're leading this army.
Dean: Oh, you mean babysitting the bad guys? Okay, Sam. Okay. God's plan.
Dean: Amara, what have you done?
Sam: He's dead. God's dead.
Amara: No. He's dying. My brother will dim... and fade away into nothing. But not until He sees what comes next. Not until He watches this world, everything He created, everything He loves turn to ash. Welcome to the end.
