Supernatural The Devil You Know S05E20 (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.

It looks like some demons were able to run Croatoan virus trials through some company.

The boys are masquerading as CDC agents. They are in a place where an epidemic of swine flu. Pestilence must have landed here. He’s hit 4 towns. However, he’s not deploying the Croatoan virus. Bobby tells them to head east, that’s the way that Pestilence is heading. Crowley arrives in the Impala. The Winchesters are pissed because he gave the Colt and knew it wouldn’t work against the Devil. He says that he can get them Pestilence. He knows all about the Horsemen rings as well. Crowley says that one of his servants planted a bug in the Impala. He wants in on their scheme. He knows the demon who knows where Pestilence is heading.

The stable boy is at the company that is trying to bring Croatan back. He just killed a man to talk with Pestilence.

Ever since Crowley has been back, Sam has been trying to kill him. So Crowley says that Sam isn’t invited. Dean goes with him alone while Sam stays in Crowley’s shack. Sam is talking to Bobby. He wants to use his body as a vessel and jump into the cage while the Devil is riding him.

Kid, it’s called possession for a reason.
Bobby

Crowley and Dean are at Niveus. Crowley kills some humans to get in. He sends Dean up to the 12th floor alone. Sounds like a setup to me.

The demon that Dean has come to see wants retribution for killing War and Famine. He manages to lure him down the elevator. Crowley puts the bag on the demon’s head and bashes him repeatedly. It’s some kind of hex bag. Dean learns that Sam’s got history with the demon. He makes Crowley tell him what it is. They bring the demon back to the house. The demon knows Sam. It’s Brady. He was watching Sam in high school. He introduced him to Jess.

Sam locks Dean in the bathroom and goes after the demon. Brady says that Azazel put the hit out on Jess, but he is the one who burned her on his ceiling.

Crowley comes back. He massacred some demons and let one live. He told him that he was in the league with Brady. Now Brady is one the torment list, not the death list. Brady was all happy that he was going to die one way or the other.

They hear hellhounds in the distance. Crowley finds a demon coin on him. The demons must have planted it. He lobs it to Dean and flicks away. The hellhound bursts in and Dean has only got a shotgun. Crowley comes back with his own hellhound. His hellhound kills the other one.

Brady tells them where Pestilence will be. Sam kills Brady.

Crowley comes to see Bobby. He wants to help get Death’s ring. He knows some kind of spell. He needs Bobby’s soul for the location of Death. Crowley says that he’ll give it right back.
