Supernatural Let it Bleed S06E21 (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.

Dean worst nightmares come true when Lisa and Ben are abducted by Crowley’s demons. He makes the ultimate sacrifice, but they are still a weakness that his enemies can exploit. Meanwhile, Cass finds how to open the door to Purgatory.

The story picks up on March 15, 1937 in Providence, Rhode Island. That’s pretty Lovecrafting. Actually, it is HP Lovecraft writing The Haunter of the Dark. Something bursts in through the window. He says that they didn’t know, they are sorry. Then it kills him.

Bobby says that Cass stopped in last night to steal Moishe Campbell’s diary. Bobby had already copied them all. It has to do with HP Lovecraft. Moishe paid Lovecraft a visit.

Meanwhile, Ben is reading Cthulhu Tales. A demon comes for Lisa and Ben. He calls Dean. He tells him that he has to jump out of the window. Any bones he breaks won’t compare to what those things will do to him. Crowley picks up the phone. He wants to have a chat. He is going to keep them hostage to guarantee that they won’t come after him. Sam and Dean invoke Balthazar. They tell him that Cass is Crowley’s butt buddy.

Bobby asks a specialist about 1937 and Lovecraft. Lovecraft had a dinner party on March 10th. They were co-worshippers in a black magic cult. They were going to open a door into another dimension. The letters have gone missing. Cass has been here. Every guest to the party was either dead or disappeared within a year. The maid had a 9-year old boy, who is still alive.

Dean is making inquiries into where Lisa and Ben are. Dean is torturing demons to get answers. Sam invokes Castiel, who appears invisible. He learns what Crowley did. He confronts Crowley, who won’t leave them alone.

Balthazar questions Cass about Crowley.

The witness says that the spell worked and the door opened. Something stepped through and went into his mother. It was invisible. He shows her a photo of his mother. Bobby realizes something. He goes to see an old flame. She was the maid from 1937. She has been trying to keep the door from Purgatory closed for 75 years. Bobby wants to know info, but she won’t tell. When he tells her he wants to protect her, she tells him that he’s just a man.

When a drunk Dean makes a mistake, Castiel comes to save him once again from a demon.

Balthazar comes to see Sam and tells him that he’s on their team. He asked Cass some questions, and he disliked the answers. Cass plans on being the vessel for those millions of souls from Purgatory. If something goes wrong, he’ll most likely blow and take half the planet with him. Balthazar says that he found Lisa and Ben. They are in an angel-proof building. Crowley doesn’t seem to trust Cass all that much. Balthazar brings them to where they are. Sam gets captured pretty quickly. Dean finds Lisa and Ben. Lisa has been possessed by a demon. She gets the knife as well. Dean gets Ben away and the knife as well. Dean tries to exorcise the demon. The demon stabs Lisa in the abdomen. Dean finishes the exorcism. Lisa collapses. Ben has to take the shotgun and help Dean while they carry Lisa out. They find Sam and get out.

Cass appears at the hospital. Lisa isn’t doing too well. She’s dying. Cass touches her and heals her. Dean asks him to do something else for him. He had their memories altered. They don’t remember him. That doesn’t change much. The bad guys know about them and Dean still cares about them, so they are still his Achilles Heel.

Cass finds Elle, the monster who stepped through from Purgatory.
