Supernatural Hammer of the Gods S05E19 (CW)

Supernatural tells the story of Sam and Dean, who are hunters. They hunt demons. This is because their mom was killed by a demon. This season, the boys discover more about their past. In the last season finale, Dean was sent straight to hell by Lilith. He had sold his soul to save Sam.

The plot of the series has evolved over time, beginning initially with the Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, looking for their father throughout most of season one. Once they find him, the show becomes about killing Azazel, the yellow-eyed demon responsible for the death of their mother. This is accomplished, but not until after Azazel’s plans are completed and a door to Hell is opened, although only momentarily, releasing a horde of demons into the world. This event also sees the death of Sam, who is subsequently resurrected by Dean selling his soul at the end of season two. In the third season, the plot of the show focuses on trying to save Dean from his deal. Along the way, they meet a demon named Ruby, who has an interest in Sam and claims to be able to help save Dean, as well as Bela Talbot, an “acquirer” and seller of occult objects who is constantly a thorn in their side. The brothers eventually manage to track down the demon who holds Dean’s contract, a powerhouse named Lilith who also wants Sam dead. However, Sam and Ruby ultimately fail to save Dean, who is killed and sent to Hell. Season four begins with Dean, miraculously returning from Hell, awakening dazed and confused in a grave. He was apparently rescued by a supposed angel named Castiel on orders from God. Sam on the other hand, has further developed his abilities with the help of Ruby during the months that Dean has been dead. It is soon revealed that Dean was revived to help stop Lilith’s plan of breaking the 66 seals, which would let Lucifer walk free once again. As the series continues, Dean learns of Sam’s newfound ability to excercise demons using his psychic abilities. They have a heated argument, where Dean confesses to Sam: “Cas told me, if I dont stop you, he will. That means God does not want you doing what you are doing Sammy.” [From wiki]

I don’t really remember what made me stop watching this show, but a friend was extolling its virtues and I watched the fourth season premiere with her. Actually, I do remember. I really got tired of the repetitiveness of the episodes. This seems to have changed drastically since the last few seasons though. Supernatural has matured into a really good show, with its own flavor and great plots. The plot for season 4 is really good and I’m glad to see God involved.

I’ve watched and reviewed all of season 4, but I have yet to post it. If there is any interest, I will do so. There are a couple of shows which I have watched for which I haven’t posted anything yet. Those include Royal Pains and In Treatment season 2. I’m sure there are others.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

Season 5 started pretty much the same as when season 4 ended. Lilith and Ruby are dead. Sam hastened the Apocalypse and Dean couldn’t stop him. The season starter was a bit lowkey. Nothing big really happened. Oh, but then again, Lucifer is walking on Earth! It’s the End Times and Lucifer has to find a vessel. In the end of the episode he does so.

Sam has been angelically detoxed of his demon blood addiction. Things are resolved between him and Dean yet. Sam chose a demon over his brother, and Dean can’t deal with that. I thought this was a good episode. I was expecting to see Hell on Earth, but I guess that they will draw this whole thing out. It hasn’t been confirmed if this would be the last Supernatural season. There is a possibility of a sixth. My guess is that it all depends on how well this season does, which is why it was picked up for a 6th season.

A security guard is walking around an abandoned place. The place is repairing itself. Some guy in a tux tells him that he’s dinner. They are all arriving soon.

Sam and Dean step into the Elysian Fields Hotel. The concierge was the guy in a tux. In the kitchen, there is a severed hand. When they get up to their room, they see a couple necking and heading into their room, which is right next to theirs. They hear them going at it. Then, there is loud sound and something hits the wall. They check it out and only find a wedding ring. They go see the concierge and become suspicious. He’s got their blood. It’s all part of their plan. The concierge is Mercury. While Dean is going around the place, he sees an elephant. He comes back, and it’s a big dude.

They can’t leave. They explore the kitchen and find some people in a freezer, who are still alive. While trying to get them out, two dudes get them and bring them to the grand ballroom. They find Baron Samedi, Ganesh, Kali, and Odin waiting for them. This is like a scene out of American Gods. They are here for the Judeo-Christian Apocalypse. They have Michael and Lucifer’s vessels. The one with the golden tongue is Baldur. Gabriel arrives. He’s still parading as Loki. Gabriel tells them that he is here to bust them out. Otherwise, the Gods will dust them or use them as bargaining chips. One way or the other, they’re über-screwed. Sam and Dean want the people in the freezer to escape.

Sam and Dean are on a short leash. It’s a blood spell. Gabriel tries to seduce Kali again, but that doesn’t work well. She binds him to her with another blood spell.

There is this ad for GhostFacers. She’s known that Loki is actually Gabriel for a long time. Kali takes Gabriel’s blade. She kills Gabriel. Dean tells them that he will help them ice the Devil. Sam and Dean can get the Devil here.

Dean has them free the entrees. Gabriel isn’t dead. He wants Dean to get the blood. Gabriel didn’t give them the real blade. Gabriel says that he can’t kill his brother. The deal is up. He tells Kali that they don’t have the real blade.

Lucifer arrives. It looks like his vessel is breaking apart. He kills Mercury. Odin, Ganesh, and Baron Samedi are all dead. Lucifer kills Balder and is about to kill Kali when Gabriel appears. He gives Dean a DVD and tells him to guard this with his life. Sam, Dean, and Kali leave. Gabriel says that God loved him the best before the humans arrived. It’s all a big temper tantrum. Gabriel says that he is on their side, not Michael’s or Lucifer’s. Gabriel is killed.

Sam and Dean watch the DVD. He says that they can trap Lucifer. Maybe they can shove him back inside the cage. The key to the cage is out there. There are 4 keys to the cage. It’s the four rings of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

They’ve got War’s and Famine’s. They need Pestilence’s and Death’s. Death isn’t going to be easy.

We see Pestilence stopping at a rest stop. He’s disgusting.
