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.

Dean is dreaming about strippers. Anna appears. She is looking for Dean. She can’t find Dean. Anna has been in the prison in Heaven. Cass turned her in. She wants to meet him. She broke out for a short while. They are after him.

She disappears and appears in the past. Cass wants to hunt for her. She will keep coming until Sam is dead. She’s in 1978. She’s there to kill Sam’s parents. Without the power of Heaven, it will be very hard to travel to the past with passengers. It will weaken Cass if he does so. Cass sends them back. They find Cass coughing blood. He’s unconscious.
They meet their parents. Sam is spooked. John is called into work. He doesn’t know that Anna is taking the voice of his boss. They see that John has left. John finds his boss with his eyes burnt out, typical angel modus operandi. Dean arrives with his mom and Sam. His mom goes hand to hand long enough for Sam to write an Enochian seal to banish her.
-Wow, awkward family roadtrip.
Sam and Dean with their parents in the car
Anna calls Uriel. She wants him to kill some people, who will kill him in the future. She is his boss.
Dean tells Mary that he is her son. Sam tells her that if she leaves John, they will never be born and the world’s problems will be over. She says that it’s already too late. She’s preggers.
Uriel and Anna arrive. Anna stabs Sam in the gut with a pipe. The Archangel Michael arrives and takes over John’s body He kills Anna before she can kill Mary.
Michael says that being the true vessel is in his bloodline. It stretches back to Cain and Abel. Michael says that he doesn’t want to kill Lucifer. He raised him. He has to kill him because God said so. He knew that this would happen.
Free will is an illusion.
The Archangel Michael
