Supernatural Unforgiven S06E13 (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.

Against everyone’s advice, Sam visits a town that he went to last year with Samuel. He ended up doing a lot of bad things there. Slowly, Sam starts to remember them and they start pulling down the wall that Death built around parts of his memory. At the end of the episode, they break down completely. It was predictable that this would happen. Sam was extremely stubborn and wouldn’t listen to what Dean had to say. Also, since Dean is living with having spent some time in Hell, I guess that Sam doesn’t think it’s a big deal. The problem is that Dean didn’t get tortured by Lucifer himself and a really pissed off Archangel Michael.

If you wanted to kill your brother, you should have done it outright.
Cass to Dean

A year ago, Sam is firing his gun. His grandpa is there. This was back when Sam didn’t have a soul. It looked like he was firing at something. On their way back, they get stopped by the cops. Sam ends up killing the deputy by beating him to a pulp.

In the present, Sam gets a text that leads them to Bristol, Rhode Island. That’s where Sam killed the deputy last year. Three women disappeared this last week. On their way there, Sam starts having flashbacks of what happened.

In a diner, Sam gets recognized as an FBI agent. They mention that he’s back in town because the disappearances have started again. This happens when Dean is in the bathroom. Dean spots some photos of Sam eating at the diner. When she touches Sam, he remembers having sex with her.

Sam, she just cougar-eyed you!

Sam realizes that they worked a case here with Samuel. Sam isn’t taking the wall and what Death said seriously. He’s being an idiot. He doesn’t realize that if the wall falls, he’ll be a drooling idiot at best. Dean wants to leave, but Sam wants to stay.

Dean questions the people left behind. Dean realizes that Sam was questioning one of the girls. He realizes that she was screwing Sam. At the same time, the married woman that Sam screwed gets attacked by a monster.

Sam gets arrested by the deputy whom he assaulted last time. The wife of the Sheriff that they told about being hunters has gone missing as well. She lets him out of the cell so that he can find answers.

Dean realizes that all of the missing girls screwed Sam. Dean thinks that it’s a trap for Sam. Sam isn’t answering his phone.

Sam goes to see the Brenna Dobbs, the Sheriff’s widow. He is starting to remember what happened the last time. He’s scratching at the wall. Samuel thought that it was an Arachne, some kind of Greek monster that hasn’t been seen in 2,000 years.

On his way out, Sam sees some spider webbing. He also gets Dean’s message about the trap being for him. Something is waiting for him. Dean arrives.

Dean wants to take him away, but Sam isn’t listening. He wants to make things right. He starts remembering more and more. He thinks that he did something bad here. It turns out that Sam decided to use Roy as bait for the Arachne. Samuel didn’t even think that this was right. It was too fast and it got Roy. Sam says that he turned Roy’s GPS on, so that they can track the Arachne to its lair. They arrived at the lair and find the men covered in spider webs. They are still alive. It came for them and it was strong. Sam ended beheading it. Sam told his grandpa that the men are probably dead men walking. He decided to put them out of their misery and shot them all. That was callous. After this, they torched the place.

Zombie Roy comes looking for Greta. Sam phones and Greta tells him to swing by. Sam knows that she’s in trouble. He comes with Dean. They find Brenna in the shed. She knows about what he did to Roy. Zombie Roy attacks him.

Zombie Roy is the Arachne. The Arachne bit him to turn them into Arachnes. By the time Sam pulled the trigger, he wasn’t human anymore. The Arachne was trying to breed. He says that he turned the other girls into monsters just like him. Dean tries to escape. Roy is on him. Brenna frees Sam. Sam beheads Roy.

At the end of the episode, the wall that Death put up finally breaks down and Sam remembers his time in the pit with Lucifer and Michael.
