Supernatural The Third Man S06E03 (CW)

Supernatural Season 6 title card

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.

Castiel is back, but he brings grim tidings from Heaven. There is a civil war going on between the angels, and God has not yet returned. Things aren’t going well as some Heavenly weapons and artifacts have been stolen. One of them pops up on Earth.

Some cop is bleeding in the locker room. He basically explodes. Another cop dies. They are connected in some fashion.

Dean is on the road. Sam is with a hooker. Dean gives him a call. He’s in PA. He’s got a case.

The latest guy had an extreme allergic reaction. They go see the 1st guy’s partner. He’s acting all weird. He says that Christopher Birch is to blame. He says that Chris Birch is a kid with no face. Kolchek keels over dead. In his head, there are some locusts.

The three cops were involved with a shooting. Chris Birch was shot by them.

Dean prays to Cass to come down. Cass appears. Sam kept saying that Cass didn’t answer. Cass doesn’t know how he came out of the cage. Also, God is a no show. He says that the Staff of Moses is to plain. He says that it’s been chaos in Heaven. A number of weapons have been stolen.

Cass transports them to see Mr. Birch, the father. The kid has the Staff. He got the Staff from an angel. He bought the Staff with his soul. Cass wants to read the Brand on the child’s soul to see who is claiming it. It will be excruciating for him. It’s Balthazar. As soon as Castiel says his name, another angel appears with a knife. He says that they’ll make good use of this and attacks Castiel. He says that Raphael says hello. They fight and launch themselves out of the window. They land on Sam’s car. Castiel reveals that there is a civil war going on in Heaven. Raphael wants to put the Apocalypse back on schedule. Castiel and others don’t want this.

Castiel does a ritual to locate Balthazar. He finds a Balthazar in a mansion with Raphael’s soldier at his feet. Balthazar says that the fighting will never stop. They hear thunder. It’s Raphael. Balthazar blinks away. Raphael has arrived with two angels. Dean and Sam dispel one. Cass sends the other back. Raphael starts beating Cass. Balthazar appears with a crystal in his hand. He says look at my junk and Raphael turns to salt.

Balthazar is about to leave, but Dean traps him in Holy Fire. He wants Balthazar to clear Aaron’s soul. He clears it. Cass frees him to clear his debt. Cass winks away.

Dean asks Sam what is up with him. He didn’t say anything when Cass was torturing the kid. Something is different from before. Sounds like he left a piece of himself in the Pit.
