Supernatural Family Matters S06E07 (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.

Grandpa Samuel is working for Crowley, the new King of Hell. Things aren’t going well, as they try to capture alpha-level creatures to placate Crowley.

Sam wakes up to find Dean and Cass looming over him. Sam says that he doesn’t sleep since he got back. Sam has got no feelings anymore. Cass punches his hand into Sam. It looks like he’s inspecting his soul. Sam has got no soul. When Sam was resurrected, it was without his soul. His soul must still be in the cage with Michael and Lucifer. Sam gets out of his bonds. Without his soul, he’s just a mind in a body. They need to find who yanked him out of the cage.

They go see their grandfather. Cass is with them.

Recap this for our wingman.
Dean about Castiel

Cass checks Samuel’s soul. He has a soul. Samuel suspected that something was wrong with Sam. Cass has to leave. The civil war is calling him.

Samuel has got a lead on the alpha vamp. He didn’t call Sam because of Dean. Samuel doesn’t want them part of the hunt because he doesn’t know Dean.

Dean tells Sam that he doesn’t trust Samuel. Something is up and he’s not telling them the truth.

The next day, Dean gets told to hang back with Gwen while the others go ahead. Dean leaves his spot when he hears gunfire. The gates of the property remind him of the telepathic transmission the alpha vamp gave out when he was in the nest. It looks like the hunters are getting slaughtered inside.

He sees his grandfather capture the alpha vamp. Sam is with them. He sneaks back. They lie about what they did. What is the plan?

Dean stops on the way home. Sam says that Samuel grills them first. Sam says that it was his decision not to tell Dean.

Sam tells Samuel that Dean left. He tells Samuel that he wants in. Samuel says that until his soul thing is resolved, he is sidelined from the real action. Sam had a backup plan. He planted a GPS and they track the old man to where they keep the alpha.

The old man wants to find something. The alpha isn’t feeling much pain. Dean and Sam go to see it. It knows Dean because it was a child of his.

It says that they all of their mothers, even him. It says that they are going to war. It asks them where the freaks go when they die. Sam says that they go to Purgatory. It says that Samuel wants to find out where Purgatory is. Samuel does as he is told. Before the alpha tells them, Samuel arrives with his goons. They disarm the Winchesters. Gwen arrives. The alpha gets loose and kills one of the hunters. They’ve got about an hour.

The alpha was about to take out Sam, when Christian appears. He’s got blacked out eyes, and takes the alpha away. Crowley appears. He knows Samuel intimately. Samuel is Crowley’s bitch. He has a demon riding Christian. Crowley wants Purgatory, it’s Hell-adjacent. Samuel says that Crowley pulled them both out. Crowley is king of Hell.

Dean stops Sam from putting a bullet in Samuel’s brain.
