The Dispatcher, who is Bobby Singer's demon counterpart, is named Elsworth. Elsworth was also the name of Jim Beaver's (Bobby) character in the TV Series Deadwood. A nice bit of symmetry. See more »

Quotes

Castiel: You know, I've been here for a very long time. And I remember many things. I remember being at a shoreline. Watching a little gray fish heave itself up on the beach, and an older brother saying, "Don't step on that fish, Castiel. Big plans for that fish." I remember the Tower of Babel, all 37 feet of it, which I suppose was impressive at the time. And when it fell, they howled divine wrath. But come on, dried dung can only be stacked so high.

Amazing episode
14 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just found Supernatural, thanks to my granddaughter. We've spent the last week catching up on the first 6 seasons. I cried at this episode. Misha Collins' performance was simply amazing and heart breaking. I won't say anymore about the plot, but this episode does give some answers as to the actions in previous episodes. I loved it and highly recommend it. All of the actors in this show are truly amazing and the show has become my new favorite. I am constantly amazed at the imagination the writers show in coming up with new ways to tell the stories of the Winchester "boys" as they are called-and I find myself loving the chemistry between Jensen, Jared, Jim Beaver and Misha Collins. I think all of us wish we had someone who loved us as much as Dean loves Sam. Can't wait to see what we have in store in season 8.
