Supernatural Point of No Return S05E18 (CW)

Season 5 title card, image via Wikipedia

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.

Zach is complaining to some mortal about getting the pink slip. Michael talks with him. The mortals eyes burst into flames and they collapse. Zach is happy. He’s back in business.

It looks like Dean is getting his affairs in order. He’s sending a letter and a parcel. Sam finds him. He brought Cass. They take him away. They go and see Bobby. Something is happening. Cass winces. Wind blows. Two angels come for Cass, but he manages to dispatch them. Cass pulls someone out of the ground. Cass brings him back. It’s their brother, Adam. Cass hides him from the angels by inscribing Enochian seals on his ribs. He wakes up. The angels warned him about the Winchesters.

He was dead and in Heaven. Angels popped out of nowhere and they told him that he was chosen to be Michael’s vessel. Cass says that the angels might be moving on from Dean. Sam tries to convince Adam that the angels are full of crap. Adam doesn’t believe him.

They are locking Dean in the angel-proof chamber. Sam tells him that they aren’t going let him do it. Dean says that he doesn’t believe in Sam anymore. The demons will find a way to turn him because he’s angry and self-righteous. Dean smokes Cass and escapes.

Zach talks with Adam. He tells him that the Winchesters are liars and that he can’t trust them. If he wants to see his mom again, he needs to leave.

Cass finds Dean and stops him from surrendering to the angels. Cass beats the living crap out of him. He takes him back. The angels took Adam. Adam must have tipped him in a dream.

Adam is in the Waiting Room. Zach tells Adam that they aren’t going to go with him. He was only the bait. Adam yaps a bit, Zach starts to punish him.

Dean wakes up cuffed to a cot in the angel-proof room. Sam tells Dean that they need his help. They can’t get to the Waiting Room without him. Cass and Bobby think that this is a bad idea. Sam believes in his big brother.

Cass takes them to Van Nuys. The Waiting Room is inside a warehouse. Cass takes a knife out. He says that he’s sorry, but he hasn’t got Sam’s faith in Dean.

Cass gets in and smokes an angel. He’s got 4 left. He has inscribed an Enochian seal on his chest with Dean’s blood. He smites them all. Dean and Sam go inside. They find Adam. Zach starts killing Dean’s brothers. Dean says that he’ll do it. When Zach calls Michael, Dean winks at Sam. Michael is coming. Dean says that in order to get him, Michael needs to smite Zach. Dean smites Zach.

Dean gets Sam out, but it’s too late for Adam. Michael comes and takes him. He’s got his vessel now, an imperfect one, but a vessel nonetheless.
