My Moose! Is that how anyone should start an article? Probably not, but when it comes to Supernatural it can’t be helped. Why? Because My. Moose. That’s why. No, but really, I’m not sure yelling this at the top of your lungs at 9:whatever at night is the best way to make friends. I’m also pretty sure that the cats were judging me on this one. After a week of torture, however, we finally got the conclusion to the stand off between Sam and Dean. And boy, was this episode everything I wanted it to be and more. Or less? I don’t know. We need to talk about a few things. But first! Let’s take a walk down memory lane and revisit last nights episode. Shall we?
It begins as many things in this show begin, with a cold hard slap of “what is going on?” and “Why is Sam dressed like a doctor?” No, really, that was my first thought. The first step in curing a demon is getting a lot of human blood; a lot of human blood that is blessed by a priest. Which explains why Sammy’s dressed as a doctor, and stealing a cooler full of the stuff. He was nice enough to at least get Dean’s blood type though. Which, as far as thoughtfulness goes, that’s pretty high up there! At least he knows Dean’s blood type. Seriously, I found out that a lot of people don’t even know their own, and that’s just a weird thought to me…I just assumed everyone knew, and that it was common to know your friends blood type too. But! Anyway! Sammy returns to the bunker to find an angry demon Dean. It seems that Dean doesn’t want to be cured. He doesn’t want to change. Which is fair, he did have a lot of fun as a demon…
Sam refuses to buy into the hateful things Dean says. And they are hateful. Like, I almost started to cry at one point, seriously…it was bad. And I also love this show…a little too much. Despite Dean blaming Sam for their mother’s death, (and generally just hating Sam’s existence) our younger Winchester presses on. With every injection of human blood, however, Dean seems to become sicker and sicker. This is really worrisome since that’s not supposed to happen. When Sam consults Castiel about it, the angel is less than helpful. Speaking of our Angel of the Lord, it seems he and Hannah hare having some sparks. Well, at least on Hannah’s end. Cas tries to explain to her that they shouldn’t get emotionally attached to one another…only it doesn’t go so well. While she’s learning to understand humans, she still doesn’t get his metaphors. As if it matters, she’s super hot and Castiel has to be stupid to not take interest in her. I mean, just my humble opinion on that one.
The two angels stop to get gas and are soon attacked. Remember the angels Cas and Hannah were hunting a few episodes back? Cas killed the guy and the chick ran off? (I know, I should really be better with their names, but this was an emotional episode!). It so happens that the girl has found them. Apart from nearly killing Castiel with little effort, she’s furious enough to take them both on, and torture Hannah for a bit. Its only Crowley showing up that saves either of them. Why is the King of Hell helping a couple of angels? Why, to slit our attacking angels throat and feed her grace to Castiel. Borrowed grace doesn’t last long, but it’s enough to heal him and give him enough power to not die soon. Crowley needs Castiel to stop Dean at whatever lengths necessary. The hunter turned demon was just too much for him to handle. And if Crowley can’t control him, he needs Dean out of the way.
Speaking of Dean, he’s had enough human blood to escape his bonds. Armed with a scary looking hammer, he goes hunting the Bunker for Sam. Sam tries to out smart him, but only succeeds in angering the demon more. Finally, the two face off. Sam armed with the demon blade and Dean with his hammer. Sam does get the blade to Dean’s neck, but can’t seem to do it. Deep down, he knows his brother is in there. Killing Dean is not an option, despite everything that’s happened. Dean, on the other hand, seems to have no qualms with killing Sam. Castiel show’s up seconds before Dean can follow through on his threats and stops him. Thanks to Cas’ well-timed rescue, they are able to finish the treatments. Finally, Dean is back to himself. Or, at least he’s human. For now, that’s good enough.
