THIS IS THE EMERGENCY SPOILER ALERT SYSTEM...YOU ARE ADVISED TO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK...
Generally when watching this show I have at least one person watch it with. And by watch with another person, I really mean texting them violently about the various emotions this show puts me through. To this episode…I say, My Moose. And by say, I really just yelled that various times throughout the entire hour of this episode. Yes, yelled. Sadly, the only beings here to put up with me were the cats. I’m pretty sure I just annoyed them for the majority of the evening, but their love can be bought with food and toys. Sometimes, the emotional trauma of this show is just that; pure unadulterated pain.
With Supernatural comes an understanding that some form of emotional abuse will happen during any episode, at any time, and there may be tears. This episode is no different. It seems Dean and Crowley are still friends, but there is a building tension between the two. As Dean is still in the “I do what I want” phase. And Crowley is trying desperately to get Dean on his side…by nearly any means. Finally, Crowley convinces Dean to take a ‘hit’ for him. A man has bargained his soul for the murder of his cheating soon to be ex-wife. Dean decides to play along, mostly because that sounds fun, and really the Mark of Cain has him craving murder. However, the bloodlust isn’t so easily sated. Before he can kill the woman, the husband shows up to watch. After a few heated words, Dean decides to just stab him instead. That’s bad for business. After all, a dead client with an incomplete deal means no soul and that makes the King of Hell very angry. When Crowley confronts Dean, the newly born Demon decides to challenge the King. Crowley values his life enough to not rise to Dean’s threats. Instead, he lets the oldest Winchester go.
Never let it be said that Crowley doesn’t hold a grudge. Because of that, the King goes to find Moose. Speaking of Sammy, what’s he been up to so far? When last we left our Moose was tied to a chair, in a barn by some crazy dude looking for Dean. It seems Dean is a very popular guy this season. Of course, our bad guy, who probably isn’t all that bad, but has been beating up my Sammy, so I instantly hate him. I also refuse to learn his name. I’m pretty sure they gave it to us, but again, he’s not important enough for me to learn it. In the midst of everything happening, Sammy is still tied to a chair getting beat up. He manages to escape when the guy takes a call from his family. Sam gets back to his search for Dean, and this time, he’s being followed.
Castiel and Hannah are still hanging together. Sam calls Cas in to help find Dean. Which would be fine, if Cas weren’t barely holding it together. When the Angel of the Lord passes out while driving the car, and crashes it into a tree, Hannah takes matters into her own hands and heads up to Heaven to talk to a special prisoner. Metatron is just as dangerous as Crowley when it comes to making deals. He offers her Castiel’s grace in exchange for his freedom. Hannah nearly accepts, but Castiel makes it up there in time to stop her from making any rash decisions. Metatron swears he will escape, and when he does, he’ll kill everyone. Castiel doesn’t take the bait, and walks away. Having accepted his fate, Cas has made peace with the idea of dying. Especially in his own way. I, however, refuse to believe this. Nope, nobody else can die on this show, because my tiny little heart cannot take anymore character death.
As if sensing that, Sam finally meets up with Dean. The older Winchester doesn’t run this time, choosing to meet his brother head on. Sam’s come prepared, and Dean is in no mood to play along. Here, our out-for-vengeance-baddie, shows up and attacks Dean. Of course, the guy loses; this is Demon Dean, after all, he doesn’t fight fair. With some small miracle, Dean lets the guy live. A poor choice since this gives Sam the chance he needs to get Dean locked down. Getting the information on Dean’s whereabouts comes with a price. Sam, reluctantly, hands Crowley the First Blade. Separating Dean and the blade seems like a great idea…Dean is beyond livid, and already voiced his plans to get back at Sam…
In all this I only have one question…Where is Gabriel!? Seriously! I refuse to believe he’s dead. That Archangel of Justice better get his feathery butt down to earth and give some help, and I mean now. Well, next week it looks like Dean doesn’t stay contained for long…
