Supernatural Meet the New Boss S07E01 (CW)

Supernatural Season 7 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 is supposed to be the last season of Supernatural, and they are dealing with the fallout of Cass absorbing all of Purgatory’s souls and trying to become God.

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.

The shit hits the fan as Cass starts exerting his godly new powers. It’s not all fun and games though, as cracks have started to appear in Cass. Sam isn’t doing well either. The cracks have started to appear and he’s seeing Lucifer all around.

The action picks up right after it stopped last time. Bobby kneels and Dean is about to kneel, but Cass tells them to stop. If they don’t mean it, it’s nothing. They just fear him. Sam is experiencing total recall about what happened in the cage.

Castiel delivers a speech to his angels, after having slain a few. Then, Cass makes appearances all over the place, killing church leaders who are hypocritical in front of their flocks, telling them that he’s their new God. The KKK is disbanded and there have been hits on the Aryan Nation. Then motivational speakers are killed.

Sam isn’t doing better. He’s haunted. They are like hallucinations and nightmares.

Cass heals leper colonies in India and then finds Crowley. He wants Crowley to return to his post as King of Hell, but he runs it under his thumb. Hell is being down-sized and Cass is keeping the lion’s share of souls for himself. Something is happening to Cass. He’s hearing strange voices and his hand is burning up. It’s the souls inside of him. They want to get out. It’s getting worse.

Dean is rebuilding his car.

They invoke Crowley. They want a spell that will bind Death. He agrees to help because he doesn’t like Cass. They go hunting for spell components.

They invoke Death right then and there. Death arrives. He’s bound and annoyed. He tells them that he can’t do anything about Sam’s hallucinations. They get one wall per customer. They ask him to commit deicide. Cass appears. Death instantly recognizes him as a mutated angel, not God. He says that his vessel is melting. There are things much older than souls in Purgatory and Cass gulped them up too. Long before God created angels and man, he created the first beasts, the leviathans. He locked them away in Purgatory. He’s the one thin membrane between them and the clever things inside. Death calls them the Old Ones.

Death says that he knows God and that Cass is not Him. Cass breaks the binding spell. Death is free. He was about to kill Cass. Cass is gone.

Death says that their only hope is to return it all to Purgatory, quickly. They need to compel Cass to return the souls. Death says that he’ll make another eclipse on Sunday, at 3:59.

Cass is at some senator’s campaign office. He wants to do something but ends up killing everyone. The footage of the attack is on the web.

Sam tries to invoke Castiel. He actually comes after a while. Cass says that he needs help.

Sam goes missing. He’s hallucinating Lucifer.

They open the door to Purgatory and case lets the souls out of him. Cass looks dead but then comes back to life. Cass says that leviathans held on inside of him. Cass is taken over. They say that Cass is dead. They throw Bobby and Dean around.
