THIS IS THE EMERGENCY SPOILER ALERT SYSTEM...YOU ARE ADVISED TO READ AT YOUR RISK...
Last week in my own separatist reality—I mean--Supernatural we learned some key life lessons. Like, don’t trust Crowley’s mom; Metatron is still a massive tool bag; and possibly my favorite, Castiel makes an okay-father-substitute. Not really, he’s terrible at it, but that’s all right. He tried really hard, and that’s all that matters. Really though, let’s focus on Rowena. Seriously, I’m more irritated at Crowley for even thinking he can trust her! She turned out exactly like I thought she would, which is both sad and amusing. I’m not entirely sure what Crowley’s childhood was like, but from this episode, I have a pretty good guess. I feel the majority of it involved a lot of resignation. Maybe Rowena and John Winchester should compete for “Show’s Worst Parent Award”. Though, Chuck (Who totally is God, and yes I just said totally, because there is no question in my mind about it!) might just be winning…
Well, the Mark of Cain is proving to be annoying and Dean really wants rid of it, so Castiel calls in a favor and borrows Metatron from Angel-jail to try and help out. There really isn’t any helping out though, because even if Metatron knows how to remove the Mark, he’s not saying a thing. But, he gives the boys a hint as to how to remove it. And by hint, he says the one thing Sam didn’t want to hear. According to the Scribe, they’re going to need the First Blade. Nothing is ever easy in the Winchester Life, but one phone call to Crowley, and the King of Hell decides he might help out. Maybe. He’s pretty sure this is a bad idea…but, you know, he does have a soft spot for Moose and Squirrel. As he goes to retrieve the blade, however, he finds that someone else has already gotten to it. By Crowley’s very own right hand man was tricked into getting the blade first by Rowena. Sadly, he doesn’t get to plead his case as he’s killed by the witch. Crowley stumbles upon the scene and falls for her twisted lies! Come on Crowley! How can you not know she’s playing you! Really!?
All the while Castiel is trying to make things right with Claire, and that’s just not happening. Dean even attempts to reach out to her, but that ends badly. Especially when she has her new friends try to kill him. Talk about being indecisive, before they can get the jump on him, Claire decides she doesn’t really want the older Winchester dead. Dean doesn’t kill the friends, but he scares them off and breaks a bench in a display of awesome. All ends well, somewhat, because Dean storms off to have some private words with Metatron, and Claire and Castiel get their “I don’t hate you, but leave me alone” closure.
The following torture scene of the world's douchiest angel is pretty spectacular. It’s a bit deserved and not as bad as it could have been. Metatron is lucky he didn’t hurt Sam, or well, there’s no telling what Dean would have done. The Scribe was responsible for a lot of things though, like killing Kevin, and that just won’t fly. Metatron finally tells Dean that the whole thing ends at the beginning. Beginning of what? Who knows! But Sam and Cas break in before Dean does any more damage and the little twit is taken back to heaven. Sam tries to tell Dean that maybe he just needs to learn to live with the Mark, annnnd, well, that’s not happening. At least tonight we get to see an old face, and I’m seriously concerned as to what happened to our little Charlie!
