Castiel: You misunderstand me Dean. I'm not like you think. I was praying that you would choose to save the town.
Dean Winchester: You were?
Castiel: These people, they're all my father's creations. They're works of art. And yet, even though you stopped Samhain the seal was broken and we are one step closer to Hell on Earth for all creation. And that's not an expression Dean. It's literal. You of all people should appreciate what that means. Can I tell you something if you promise not to tell another soul?
Dean Winchester: Okay.
Castiel: I'm not a hammer...

It is pronounced "Sow Wan" not "Sam Hain"!!
12 January 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Please don't insult the Celtic Gods, I live in Ireland and will have the pay the price to our Pagan Lords!

Actually I am kinda surprised this is the first episode that make use of Celtic myths. We have tons of mystical characters that would make great stories. Most of them are mischievous.

Once again "Sam Hain" is wrong please do the research or just randomly phone ANY Irish person. We all speak Gaelic and can tell you how to pronounce it.

Do an episode about Sláine...he's a legendary warrior that slays demons...kinda Conan the Barbarian meets Dean Winchester!
