While Dean, Sam and Bobby worry about 20 hunters killed or missing in the area, they themselves are each attacked by angry spirits who blame them for getting killed during demon-eliminations. Dean notices they carry a brand, actually the 'witness mark', a sign that the Apocalpse may be on hand. Bobby convinces the brothers they must all leave his ghost-proof safe-room to perform a spell which returns the spirits to their graves. After that works, Castiel appears again, assuring Dean there is a God, and warning the celestial army has greater concerns then a few demon hunters. In fact the witnesses are only one of 66 'seals' required to release Satan, as Lillith is attempting, and this battle is lost, despite the trio's survival. Written by KGF Vissers

Rising of the Witnesses
15 May 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The skeptical Dean tells Sam and Bobby about his encounter with Castiel and questions the existence of God and angels. Ruby meets Sam and she tells that she is scared with the presence of an angel on Earth. Bobby unsuccessfully tries to contact his hunter friend Olivia and the trio heads to her house. They find her slaughtered and they try to contact Jed and other hunters; they find that they have also been violently murdered. Sam is attacked by Victor Henricksen but he is saved by Dean; Dean is attacked by Meg Masters but Sam saves him; and Bobby is attacked by the ghost of the twin girls. Sooner they realize that the hunters are attacked by the spirit of people that they had not saved before. Bobby brings the Winchester brothers to a ghost proof panic room and he discovers that the phenomenon, called Rising of the Witnesses, is a milestone in Revelations and a sign of the apocalypse. Bobby prepares a spell to rest the souls of the witnesses and later Castiel tells Dean that several of the sixty-six seals that lock Lucifer have been broken by Lilith.

"Are You There, God? It's Me... Dean Winchester" is another great episode of the Fourth Season of Supernatural. In this episode, Dean, Sam and Bobby meet the angry spirits of those that they have not saved that uses the remorse to lower the defense of the hunters. Dean begins the show absolutely skeptic but the information of Castiel shake his beliefs (or disbeliefs). Bobby is presently another great attraction of Supernatural with his great culture and knowledge in demonology. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Deus Está? Sou Eu, Dean Winchester" ("Are You There, God? It's Me, Dean Winchester")
