Storyline

Uriel and Castiel forcibly recruit Dean to torture the captive Alastair. They need to find how, who or what is killing angels as one of another 66 Seals in which both Dean and his former captor play mind games against each other to break one another down. Sam is forced to call upon Ruby to help him find Dean before he emotionally cracks, while the rouge angel, Anna Milton, also returns to ask Castiel where he stands on his position as an angel of the Lord - does he obey all heavenly rules without question?

Best. Episode. EVAH.
29 March 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had to do a little dance when it was over, I was so excited. This show has really come into it's own - season 1 was very "monster of the week", but since then, the backplots have been getting better and better. This episode significantly advances the angels' storyline, answering some maddening questions I've had this year. Astute (and obsessed!) fans will note that it answers some older questions as well. We see a side of Dean which many would prefer not to speculate about. The cinematography this season has been amazing, particularly when the angels are around. Some great examples of that this episode. The beautiful and talented Julie McNiven was back this week, kindling hopes that she will be around in the long run - hooray!
