A civil war in Heaven
16 December 2011 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

No matter how many times I see this episode, I still can't figure out how I truly feel about. I don't hate it but I'm not crazy about either.

Cas is back, he got the chance to deliver some funny moments and Sam's car is gone. The Charger was cool but she had to go. The brotherly teasing is always fun to watch. Dean is still a family man and it's good the brothers are working together again. Also we got to see some gory deaths again like good old Supernatural days. So what's wrong? Why can't I like it?

The Heavenly civil war is a stupid idea and the whole stolen Heavenly weapons story doesn't work for me. And the show seems to be inconsistent to me right now. First it's the Djinn and the Sam and Samuel resurrection, then it's the alpha shape shifter and now it's the war in Heaven. And what's the deal with angels buying human souls?

Sebastian Roché is charming as Balthazar, showing a new version of Angels. He is neither a dick like Zach and Uriel or nerd like Cas.

Finally, What's wrong with Sam? An episode after the other, he seems more and more remote and cold, and I wonder if he is really Sam or is it his way with dealing with his Hell experience, We have seen Robo Sam before on "Mystery Spot" may be it's the same attitude. But this is not our Sam, Sam would never hire a prostitute (he made that clear on "Lazarus rising"), Sam would never be OK with torturing a kid. And though I liked it when Sam stepped out and took the lead before but now he is too bossy and annoying.
