Supernatural The Man Who Would Be King S06E20 (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.

Cass has been working with Crowley all of this time to get the souls in Purgatory for his civil war in Heaven. Dean tells him not to do this, but Cass won’t listen.

Someone created 50,000 new souls for Castiel’s war machine. That’s what Rachel accused Castiel of before he killed her.

Castiel is reminiscing about the past then he tells his story.

Cass comes to see Dean. He tells Dean that he can’t believe that Crowley is still alive. Sam is in Omaha tracking a djinn.

Cass visits Crowley, who’s experimenting on Eve’s body. She’s still laying eggs. Crowley isn’t happy that Cass let the Winchesters kill her. Crowley wants them dead. Cass still considers himself their guardians.

After they averted Armageddon, Cass went to Harrow Hell to raise Sam out of Lucifer’s Cage. He wasn’t completely successful.

In his story, Cass says that after bringing back Sam he went to Heaven. Each soul generates its own Heaven. He met Rachel. Rachel believes that it was God. Castiel says that it was the Winchesters who brought him back. He told them that God wanted them to have freedom.

Explaining freedom to angels was like teaching poetry to fish.
Castiel

Cass met with Raphael. Raphael wanted to be the next one in charge. Raphael wanted the Apocalypse to start up again.

Crowley met with Castiel when he was watching over Dean. Crowley wanted to help him beat Raphael. He brought him to Hell. Crowley proposed to start a civil war in Heaven. He’s basically asking him to be the next Lucifer. Crowley appeals to Cass’ vanity. He tells him about Purgatory: 30 to 40 million souls waiting to be tapped. Crowley says that Samuel Winchester can get the monsters, the monsters can get them to Purgatory. All that Crowley asks for is half. Crowley loans him 50,000 souls for his war in Heaven, souls from the Pit.

Cass went to see Raphael and he showed off his power.

Sam and Bobby are interrogating some of Crowley’s new hunters. Bobby, Sam, and Dean are talking about Cass. Cass is spying on them. Dean is the most conflicted. Cass sees this. The hunter says that they deal with Elsworth, the demon dispatcher. He’s Bobby’s counterpart. Cass appears and smites them all. That way, neither the demons nor Elsworth can lead them back to Crowley.

Dean wants to call Cass. Cass didn’t come because the Winchesters would have questions that he couldn’t answer. Crowley sent his best hunters. Cass appears and smites the demons. He tells them that Crowley is alive. Bobby and Sam apologize. Castiel makes a reference to Superman turning to the dark side. The only way he could have known about this is if he had been spying on the Winchesters. Dean knows immediately what has been going on. Castiel has been working with Crowley all of this time.

Dean invokes Castiel. They capture him in a circle of angel fire. They get the truth out of him. Something is happening. Demons are coming. Cass tells them to run. Crowley appears and frees him.

Cass comes to see Dean. The angel-proofing that Bobby put up on the house isn’t completely right. Dean asks Cass not to do this.

Cass was praying to God to get guidance. God didn’t answer.
