Okay, again, I've missed a few reviews and I greatly apologize.
This week, Crowley gets a special visit from a certain Knight of Hell he's been hunting. Abaddon is there to offer him a deal; help her kill the Winchesters' before they can betray them both, then they can focus on killing each other. To sweeten the deal, she brings in Crowley's son. Still filled with human emotions, Crowley isn't willing to watch Gavin be tortured, so he does, reluctantly, agree to help her. Of course, he tips the boys off first.
Before that, however, Sam and Dean are called in by Castiel to help him get information out of an Angel that supposedly was Metatron's "second in command." As it turns out, he was up for some position since Metatron was hand picking Angels for a secret mission. Or perhaps he's still on his plan for only letting a small handful of them in. Either way, the Angel in question didn't make the cut and was merely trying to sound cooler than he was in front of his brethren. Sam and Dean play on his inadequacies and find out that there is a portal to Heaven, only it's constantly moving. With this information, Castiel sets out to meet with Gadreel. Cas has decided to try and end this as peacefully as possible, in the hopes that they can put an end to this Angel on Angel violence. While he does that, Sam and Dean head off to meet Crowley, who is kind enough to tip them off on Abaddon's plan.
Never trust a Knight of Hell, because Abaddon shoots Crowley; a devil's trap carved into the bullet keeps him from being able to move, really. Dean sends Sam to the basement on some goosechase, while he goes to meet Crowley with the First Blade. It's here we see the true power it possesses. Abaddon almost has the upper hand, but Dean powers through. The blade seems to be changing him, as Sam later points out, and that is not a good thing. In the end, Abaddon is killed, and Sam stumbles upon the scene of Dean stabbing Abaddon repeatedly. They decide not to kill Crowley, but they are going to send his son back. Over the course of the episode, the two were finally forming a bond. Before they can find a way to send him back, Crowley wants to say goodbye. Only, to take Gavin and disappear, leaving the boy somewhere far from the Winchester's.
With Dean out of it, Sam worried, and Cas fighting Metatron, Crowley is the least of their worries. And where is Gabriel!? I refuse to believe he really is dead. I think he's alive and I think Metatron is controlling him. After all, our lovable trickster can't truly be dead!
Okay, as promised here is Mattie's reviews for the last two episodes!
