Supernatural An Appointment In Samarra S06E11 (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.

Dean has to spend a day as Death in order for Death to grant him a favor. He used Tessa, the Reaper, to get him a sit down.

Dean goes to see someone in the back of a Chinatown shop. It’s Dr. Robert, who stitched up his dad more times that he can count. He’s got a goth as an assistant. I guess they are inducing death. The doc says that Dean has got 3 minutes. He invokes Tessa, a reaper. He wants to talk to her boss, Death. He wants her to invoke him. She says that it isn’t possible. While they argue, Death appears. He tells Dean to talk fast.

Dean wants both of his brothers out of the cage. Death tells him to pick one. He says Sam. Death says that the soul is flayed. Death says that he can put it behind a wall. Tessa says that the wall isn’t permanent. This is Dean’s prize for the wager. Death tells him to put on his ring for one day.

Sam wakes up. He’s been away for 7 minutes. Sam isn’t happy about this. Dean tells Bobby to watch him. Dean puts on the ring. He ends up next to Tessa. He has to kill people. He has to touch them, Tessa reaps them, and they die.

Meanwhile, Sam is getting busy on his own. He invokes the angel Balthazar. He wants a way to keep his soul out forever.

Mike and Lucy are hate-banging it as we speak.
Balthazar

Balthazar says that he will do it for free. Balthazar says that he will need to commit patricide, so that his soul won’t want to inhabit its body. The vessel needs to be scarred. Bobby knows that something is up. Sam is trying to kill him. Bobby is smart and his ploy doesn’t work.

Death’s job isn’t easy. Dean tries to save a girl, but there are consequences. It was just a vision but enough to make Dean kill the girl. Every time he tried to save the nurse or her husband, Dean wrecks the natural order of things.

Dean comes back just in time. Sam was about to kill Bobby.

Dean meets Death again. They have a little chat. Dean thinks that he flunked, but he learned something and Death is glad for it. While both Sam and Dean are an affront to the natural order of things, the do serve a purpose. He tells Dean to keep digging. Death tells him that it’s all about the souls. Death goes to Hell to get Sam’s soul. Death comes back and puts the soul into Sam. I like Death.
