Sam and Dean are visiting Bobby, who is catatonic after learning that he will be paraplegic, and Castiel comes to his room. Bobby asks Castiel to heal him, but the angel tells that he lost his powers and he needs Dean's amulet to locate God. Bobby receives a phone call from Rufus asking to help since he is in River Pass, Colorado, under siege of demons. The Winchester brother heads to the small town and they meet Ellen, who tells that her daughter Jo is missing and the town is crowded of demon. Sooner Sam and Dean discover that there are no demons in River Pass, but the people are under the spell of War, who is one of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

After Sam and Dean's talk at the end, Sam starts to get up and swings his right leg over the bench. When Dean starts talking again, Sam stops, responds, then swings his right leg over the bench again as he continues getting up. See more »


Castiel: I don't have much time, we need to talk.
Dean Winchester: Okay.
Castiel: Your plan, to kill Lucifer.
Dean Winchester: Yeah, you wanna help?
Castiel: No. It's foolish. It can't be done.
Dean Winchester: Oh, well thanks for the support.
Castiel: But I believe I have the solution. There is someone besides Michael, strong enough to take on Lucifer. Strong enough to stop the Apocalypse.
Sam Winchester: Who's that?
Castiel: The one who resurrected me and put you on that airplane. The one who began everything. God.
[pause, the brothers look at him in disbelief]

Good intentions, quick slide to Hell buddy boy.
2 December 2011 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

The hardest thing about addiction is that you don't only have to fight the physical cravings but the psychological ones too. Sam might have been healed physically, no fever no shivers, but he still wanted the power the daemon blood had given him. At first he dismisses the idea and wants to be professional not letting that stand in his way but when he had to kill two teenage boys he thought they were possessed and saw the blood dripping from the knife, he knew he has been lying to himself. When Dean talks to him, Sam expresses his desire to save people not killing them as he did to those boys but Dean slaps him with the painful truth and says "if he means when he was hopped up on demon blood" and later when Dean talks him against going out again with Ellen and asks him if he really had learned his lesson. Sam shoves Dean against the wall but he is not angry with his brother he is angry with himself. Things get worse, Sam is captured and War confronts him with the painful truth. Even after the situation gets resolved Sam has to stop lying to himself, he tells Dean how messed up he is, how much he still desires the power the daemon blood had given him, how much he is scared and how much he doesn't trust himself. He says he is in no shape to be hunting and that they have to go separate ways. Sam's confession is the first step towards healing, he abandoned his denial and we can see he began to act more mature and began to regain his humanity. (so his soul wasn't gone after all)

On the other hand, Dean clearly still cares about his brother but he can't trust him either. He is reluctant to giving Cas his amulet, his most cherished possession besides the Impala and the sign of how much he valued his brother, he spends most of the time in this episode worrying about keeping Sam away from daemons and hence from the temptation of daemon blood. When he walked in the convenience store right after Sam killed those boys, he saw how stressed out Sam was and how hard he was fighting against his inner daemons. Dean realized how distracted he became, he spends more time worrying about his brother than worrying about doing the job right and as a result it took him very long to figure out the real threat in town. He knew he had to let his brother go and he even offered him the Impala but letting go still was a hard thing for him. He couldn't look his brother in the eye and his eyes kept lingering with him as he went away.

Titus Welliver gave a very nice portrayal of War and I loved the sweet cherry mustang. Good to have Rufus and Ellen back, can't say the same about Jo unless the writers try to do the character right and stop messing her up.

I enjoyed the Ellen reunion with the boys. Holly water in the face then taking them out of harms way, a heart warming motherly hug (Dean needed that at the moment, but I wish she gave Sam one too) and then a slap for not even caring to assure her Dean was alive. All in all, don't miss this episode.
