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.
