Supernatural The Man Who Knew too Much S06E22 (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.

Well, the boys end up being too late to stop Castiel from becoming God. At least, that’s what he says at the end of the episode. Since Supernatural works with an absentee God, I wonder how this will play out in the next season.

* * * * *

Sam is running from the cops. He barges into a closed bar. He says that he doesn’t remember his name.

The barmaid gives him a beer. He says that he was sleeping on a park bench and was bothered by some cops. He knocked them both out. He finds the HP Lovecraft book The Haunter in the Dark in her library. He remembers a hotel named the Nite Owl two towns over. They find a lot of hunter research on the walls. He remembers something about Elle, the creature that took over the maid at the shindig HP Lovecraft threw.

Dean, Sam and Bobby find her dying. She says that the demon and angel worked her over. She told them how to get to the door to Purgatory open. They need virgin blood, the blood of a Purgatory native, and work the ritual during the lunar eclipse. Cass pops in. He wants them to stop. Dean tells him to go screw himself. Cass says that he will save Sam, but only if he stays down. Cass touches Sam’s head. He must have taken down the blocks from his time in the cage.

Sam remembers Bobby’s name and finds his address. He wants to head to South Dakota. The girl wants to go home, and Sam thanks her. Someone takes a pot shot at them. Sam thinks he sees himself shooting.

I was with a male model and an older guy.
Sam talking about Dean and Bobby

In the past, Sam was in Bobby’s angel-proof bunker, unconscious. Both Dean and Bobby know that the dam has been popped. Sam is dreaming what is happening.

Sam is driving with the girl. Dean shines a light into his eye and Sam is blinded in his dream. It’s day. He tells the girl to get into the car. He finds the hunter arsenal in the trunk. There’s something in the woods. It’s the other Sam. He disarms him and tells himself that the wall has been shattered by Cass. He broke into a million pieces. It’s the Sam without a soul who’s talking to him. Sam-no-soul tries to kill Sam-with-soul. Now they both have guns.

It’s kind of strange to have an episode like this for the season finale. I’d expect this to happen somewhat before the end. There isn’t much time to deal with what Cass is up to with Crowley. Sam-with-soul manages to shoot Sam-without-soul. Before dying, he tells him that there is another one out there. A light comes out of the other Sam. He comes back and tells the girl that he remembers her. Sam-with-no-soul shot her to get at a monster. She says that’s he’ll be very sorry soon.

Balthazar finally shows up. He gives Dean Cass and Crowley’s location. Then, he disappears.

Cass tells Crowley that he’s not getting any souls from Purgatory. Cass tells him to flee or die. Crowley disappears.

Sam-with-soul finds the other Sam. He’s the one that remembers Hell. Sam has to remember what happened in the cage so that he can get back to the real world. This Sam lets the other Sam kill him. He tells him that he’ll need luck.

Dean leaves him the address of where they are going before he leaves.

Cass invokes Balthazar. Cass knows that he betrayed him. Cass knows that Dean is on his way. Cass kills Balthazar. Dean and Bobby arrive. Bobby counts a dozen angels guarding Cass. They hear a drumming. Something big is coming. It’s demons and they aren’t happy. Cass tries to smite Crowley but he can’t. He partnered up with Raphael. They give him the same choice that he gave Crowley earlier. Cass flees. Crowley and Raphael do the ritual. Dean and Bobby wake up in their overturned car. The demons flipped it over on their way in.

Sammy arrives near the car. He remembers everything, but managed to get here.

The ritual didn’t do anything. Cass appears. He has the real blood. They’ve been working with dog blood. Cass’ jar is empty. Cass is powered up. He lets Crowley go and destroys Raphael. Cass is acting strange. Cass plans on punishing Raphael’s followers. Dean tells him to let the souls back into Purgatory. Sam arrives and plunges an angel dagger into Cass’ back. He takes it out. It didn’t work. Cass is no longer an angel, he says that he is their new god.
