Alright, there we have it. The finale is behind us. I enjoyed it, if that is the right word for it, and now we have again "Hellatus" as the fans of Supernatural call it. I had some trouble deciding what to pick as a video of the week but after searching for a bit I found two possibilities. Both videos are in black and white, which I thought was fitting because of the "new bad" we got in the form of "the Darkness". So I decided to make this week special and chose both.
The first video is focused on Death and the Reapers. Have I mentioned how I hate them killing long lived quest characters? I mean, usually a new character only survives one episode. This is Supernatural after all but enough already! Death was a character who belonged to the top of the chart of my favorite characters. Julian Richings was so good portraying him. I can't even imagine how they can fix what happened in the finale nor speculate what happens now when Death is dead. I actually hope he isn't dead, like probably all the other 10+ characters they have killed.
The second video is also dark and focuses on Sam and Dean. The video shows how tough their lives are. Unfortunately, given what happened in the season 10 finale, their lives aren't going to get better any time soon. At least now they will again be united against the greatest evil there has ever been.
Sorry about the dark theme this week, but these videos pay a grim homage to both losing Death and being introduced to the ancient "Darkness". Maybe in Hellatus I can find some lighter videos for you to enjoy!

"O Death" by Jen Titus
Oh, Death, оh Death, oh Death,
Won't you spare me over til another year
But what is this, that I cant see
with ice cold hands taking hold of me
When God is gone and the Devil takes hold,
who will have mercy on your soul
Oh, Death, оh Death, oh Death,
No wealth, no ruin, no silver, no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul
Well I am Death, none can excel,
I'll open the door to heaven or hell.
Oh, Death, оh Death,
my name is Death and the end is here...
"O Death" — also known as "O, Death, Oh Death" and "Conversations with Death" — is a traditional American folk song. Country blues banjo player Moran Lee "Dock" Boggs (1898-1971) recorded the song in the late 1920s. A recording from the 1938 National Folk Festival held in Washington, D.C. is on file with the Library of Congress. Various folk music artists included Oh, Death on a variety of musical collections throughout the 1970s and '80s.
Indiana University Press' The Journal of Folklore Research features articles in an 2004 issue asserting that "O, Death" is Lloyd Chandler's song "A Conversation with Death", which he performed for several years while preaching in Appalachia."

"Shell Shock" by Clint Mansell
"This composition "Shell Shock" contains no lyrics and is fully instrumental.
Melody was included in original CD album Smokin Aces from official Movie soundtrack in 2007 year."
"Clinton Darryl "Clint" Mansell (born 7 January 1963) is an English musician, composer, and former lead singer of the band Pop Will Eat Itself. After Pop Will Eat Itself disbanded in 1996, Mansell was introduced to film scoring when director Darren Aronofsky hired him to score his debut film, Pi. Mansell then wrote the score for Aronofsky's next film, Requiem for a Dream, which has been well received. The film's primary composition "Lux Æterna" has become extremely popular, appearing in a variety of advertisements, film trailers and YouTube clips."
What do you think of my choices? Have you found other videos that you think reflect the finale? Am I alone in hating that they killed Death?
