Storyline

Dean has an argument with Sam that wants to say "yes" to Lucifer to trap him. However, they go to the Serenity Valley Convalescent Home where Pestilence is and they are defeated by the Horseman. Out of the blue, Castiel appears and gets his ring. Bobby sells his soul to Crowley to get the information of where Death is. Crowley recovers Bobby and makes him walk. Dean, Sam, Bobby, Castiel and Crowley head to Chicago to meet Death. Bobby, Castiel and Sam find that Niveus Pharmaceuticals will supply vaccines with the Croaton virus. When Dean sees Death in a pizzeria, the Horseman surprisingly proposes a deal to Dean; in return, he gives his ring to Dean. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Many Supernatural episodes share a title with a Rock or Metal song. 'Two Minutes to Midnight' is one of these. It is the first single track from an album released by Iron Maiden in 1984. The song, the literal title of which is '2 Minutes to Midnight' refers to the closest approach to midnight ever of The Doomsday Clock in 1953. See more »

[Very slowly, afraid it might be poisoned... or worse, Dean takes a bite]
Death: Good. Isn't it?
[Dean looks at him, then down as his eyebrows briefly go up in surprise because, yes, it is good]

The Entrance of Death
10 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second-to-last episode of the fifth season is one that bares all to let us know that the end is almost here, and it does so with some great scenes.

Pestilence, I thought, was way too messy, yet very much what one would expect in the show. The episode transitions from Pestilence to the known arrival of Death, the fourth and final Horsemen to make an appearance. Death's arrival in the city is done in an amazing slow-motion, very carefully edited scene that is perhaps one of the best scenes of the entire show. It is really brilliant, as is Death's conversation with Dean. It brings up a great point, as how death is neutral to everything.

Overall, this is a great episode and one of the best of the season. Much to look forward to.
