Supernatural Frontierland S06E18 (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.

Warning: spoilers ahead.

So Cass is doing something secret that even other angels don’t seem to like in order to win his war against Raphael. Meanwhile, the boys go back in time to get the ashes of a phoenix. Idiotically though, they don’t take the Colt back with them to the present. Thankfully, Samuel Colt saved their asses.

This is a Supernatural episode that takes place in the past. There’s a showdown between Dean and some other guy. For some reason, Dean is the sheriff.

48 hours earlier, Sam, Dean, and Bobby were looking for the Campbell family library. They are looking for information on the Mother of all Monsters. The ashes of the phoenix can burn the Mother. Samuel Colt killed a phoenix in 1861. Dean wants to go back in time to get the phoenix. Dean invokes Cass, but some angel named Rachel arrives instead. She says that Cass is busy. When she gets entitled, Cass arrives to take over. They will have 24 hours in the past. Dean dresses up as a cowboy.

They arrive in town just in time to see the hanging of Elias Finch, who tells everyone that they will burn for this. Dean pretends that he’s a Marshal named Clint Eastwood. Sam is Walker, a Texas Ranger. Colt was seen last 4 years ago. He was building a railroad track stop in the middle of nowhere. Elias Finch appears and burns the judge into ashes. They decide to go with the Sheriff to get Finch. Dean sends Sam to get Colt or Colt’s gun while he gets ready to go with the posse. They realize that the phoenix might be Finch. Finch comes for the Sheriff and incinerates him.

Rachel confronts Cass about his dirty little secret. She tries to kill him with an angel dagger. He kills her instead. It looks like Castiel is hurt. He’s leaking. He goes to see Bobby. He collapses.

In the past, Dean looks like a real cowboy instead of a douche. Dean becomes the Sheriff when they discover the old Sheriff dead.

Demons come looking for Samuel Colt. They know that he’s built a Devil’s Gate. They want him to open it. He uses the Colt on them. They die. Sam arrives to see Colt. A cell phone convinces Colt that he’s from the future. Colt doesn’t want to come. He is supposed to shoot a phoenix in Sunrise in 3 hours. Sam tells him to give him the gun.

Cass wakes up. He painted a warding symbol in his own blood. He’s too weak to get the boys back. He tells Bobby that if he touches his soul, he might be able to power up enough to get them back. Bobby quickly arrives.

Dean put the last douche in jail. Finch is coming for him. Finch arrives. He’s vulnerable to iron. The douche killed his wife. They framed him for the murder of his wife. Finch grabs a gun and shoots the douche. Dean escapes through the window.

Sam arrives with the Colt. Finch comes out. It’s a showdown. In the present, Cass touches Bobby’s soul. The Colt kills the phoenix. It burns up. Dean drops the Colt when he goes for the ashes. They don’t get them and now they don’t have the Colt either. That was stupid. Double stupid.

Someone knocks at the door. It’s a messenger service. It’s a package for Sam Winchester. It’s from Samuel Colt. Inside the box, they find Sam’s phone, a letter, and the ashes.
