Boring and Overrated Episode
10 December 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Castiel recalls that he would never defeat the powerful Raphael and why he has associated to Crowley to get more power. Meanwhile, Sam and Bobby suspect of Castiel, but Dean refuses to believe that his friend might have betrayed them.

"The Man Who Would Be King" is a boring and overrated episode, certainly the worst so far in this Sixth Season, with existentialist crisis of Castiel and an excessive melodrama of Dean. In the end, Castiel has become a Machiavellian politician, selling his soul to the demon to make arrangements and get more power exactly like in real life. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "O Homem Que Queria Ser Rei" ("The Man Who Wanted to Be King")
