Storyline

Dean goes to Dr. Robert to have a 3 minutes near-death experience to meet Death. They have a meeting and Death proposes Dean wear his ring for 24 hours; in return, Death would retrieve Sam's soul, return it to Sam's body and put up a wall to isolate his traumatic period in Hell. Dean becomes Death for a day with the guidance of Tessa and soon he learns that the natural order cannot be violated. Meanwhile Sam summons Balthazar to help him find away to keep his soul from being put back, but he must kill Bobby to do it. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

When the heart-attack victim asks Dean what it all means, Dean quotes the Kansas song "Dust in the Wind" (1978), just like Ted does when "philosophizing" with Socrates in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989). See more »

Goofs

In "Frontierland" when Castile needs to heal himself by touching Bobby's soul he makes a point of saying he has to be very careful doing so or Bobby might explode. So it seems strange that both Michael & Lucifer are able to violently abuse Sam's soul in the cage without any such explosive consequences. See more »

Quotes

Death: This is hard for you, Dean. You throw away your life because you've come to assume that it'll bounce right back into your lap. The human soul is not a rubber ball. It's vulnerable, impermanent, but stronger than you know... and more valuable than you can imagine.

very interesting episode
1 August 2013 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

Unexpected, but definitely excellent episode.

Dean makes a wager with Death, to get Sam's soul back. Death agrees, but says that for that Dean must wear his ring for 24 hours. If he takes the ring off, he loses. Nice to see Tessa again. Of course soulless Sam decides, to stop Deans plan at any cost. It was truly horrible, how he was ready to kill Bobby. I mean I knew ever since he let Dean being turned into a vampire that he is dangerous, but this episode it was really portrayed how very dangerous. And how important it is to get Sam his soul back, because without his soul he is a monster.

It was an important episode, because Dean actually experienced what are the consequences for cheating death. Like he and Sam..actually his entire family has been doing for a long time. Family member gets killed, someone makes a deal (Mary to save John, John to save Dean, Dean to save Sam, Samuel to save Mary...) and that messes up natural order.

Episode ends with Death giving Sam his soul back.
