The countdown to the series finale of Supernatural is on, and the build to the final battle between God and the Winchesters is only getting more complicated. Amara's return to the show added another very powerful variable to the situation, but God's twin sister refused to commit to one side or the other even when reminded of everything God had done to her. Actress Emily Swallow spoke with CinemaBlend about Amara in Supernatural Season 15, including the relationship with her brother and dynamic with Dean.
Emily Swallow, who also starred in Haunting of the Mary Celeste just in time for Halloween, shared how she views the relationship between God and Amara, saying:
Since Amara debuted as a destructive entity known as "The Darkness" who opposed God, it's not altogether surprising that she came across as a villain. That said, Season 15 revealed that Amara and God are not only siblings, but twins, and she feels a natural allegiance to him. Who could really judge her for that in the grand scheme of the show, considering everything else we've seen siblings do for each other over the years on Supernatural?
Supernatural has pretty clearly painted God as the bad guy ever since the end of Season 14, but Dean managed to get through to Amara when they reunited just a few episodes ago. Unfortunately, Dean also lied and told Amara that he could never hurt her, despite the fact that his plan is to kill both Amara and God. Lying to Amara about something so huge is a gamble that really relies on her dying before the truth comes out, and gambles haven't been working so well for the Winchesters.
Emily Swallow went on to explain Amara's allegiance to Dean in Season 15 after they had a heavy conversation (and some pierogies):
Having to choose between her twin brother who nonetheless abandoned her for eons and the human who listened when the stakes are so high can't be an easy decision even for a being as powerful as Amara, and it may come down to the little variables that decide how her story goes and ends in these final episodes of Supernatural. The importance of family has been a key element of the show from the very beginning, but found family has been a theme as well, particularly once Castiel joined the team.
As for the final episodes of the series, we already know a couple of key actors who unfortunately won't be back before the end, and Supernatural actually had to cut something from the series finale due to COVID-19. There are still stories that need to be resolved, not the least of which is Castiel's deal with The Empty. Here's hoping that Supernatural doesn't resolve that one by killing him off again, and keeping him dead!
