this episode was sort of disappointing and but had few surprises in it too.
23 January 2010 | by (U.S) – See all my reviews

Sam and Dean once again are at loggerheads.. of course i do not blame dean for it.. thanks to sam for messing it all up and bringing trouble at the doorstep as usual. it was fun to watch castiel in this episode though.. love the increasing proximity between dean and cas. they are finally entering the world of friendship,unknowingly though.. their bonding is clearly visible in few amusing moments at the bar and also during the confrontation of raphael. the bestpart was where dean advises cas to keep looking for his father (as he did.. he was speaking from his experience) because there is still hope as he did when he was looking for his father even though most of them told him he was dead. sam finally is being shown torn with guilt, which is actually perfect for him. After a long time or may be the first time dean admits he is tired of responsibility.. According to my opinion anybody would get tired if placed in his place.. every time he is the one pulling Sam out his dark paths. being a big brother does not mean he has to take all responsibilities.. sam says in one of the episode that one of the reasons he move away from him was he always protected him thinking he is still his lil brother..(lol for a time being he was in hell and not around to look after him..look where that pushed him and he says he does not need protection. also in last episode he let go of him and he released Lucifer.) dean's whole life has gone looking after him hence it is quite obvious of him to say that. Raphael on the other hand is definitely lying about Lucifer raising castiel and placing sam and dean on plane. well Lucifer has no reasons to save Castiel and Dean. in fact Dean is the biggest threat to him as he is Michael's vessel. as for castiel, he is not even on his side. moreover, i do not think Lucifer has the power to raise an angel from the dead. i conclude my review here by saying that as usual jensen is at his best and sam is also good. misha collins is really nice esp when he says that dialogue "today you are my little bitch" to raphael. dean is funny as usual
