Dean returns from the afterlife in hell six feet under in a grave and he walks to a gas station in the middle of nowhere. He steals an old parked car and drives to meet the skeptic Bobby that believes first that he is a supernatural creature. Dean thinks that Sam had made a deal to release him and they drive to Illinois to meet Sam that tells that he had not succeeded in bringing Dean back. The trio drives to meet the psychic Pamela Barnes to seek the answer and she organizes a séance to conjure who saved Dean. He finds that a being named Castiel saved him, but Pam becomes blind when she sees him. Then Dean and Sam go to a dining where the waitress and the owner are demons. Dean discovers that they are scared and also do not know who saved him. During the night, Sam sneaks from the motel room to vanquish the demons and meet Ruby that is using another vessel. She tells that no demon took Dean from Hell. Meanwhile, Dean and Bobby conjure Castiel in a barn prepared with many supernatural traps. When the overwhelming Castiel appears, he tells to Dean that he is an angel of the Lord and God has a plan for him.

The beginning of the Fourth Season could not be better, with a stunning episode. The creepy return of Dean in the grave is impressive and the conclusion with the unexpected revelation of Castiel is totally surprising. Further, the unknown Traci Dinwiddie is a very sexy and beautiful woman and I hope to have the chance to see her again. Jen Halley is also a gorgeous woman in the role of a demon. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "A Ressurreição de Lázaro" ("The Ressurrection of Lazarus")
