Storyline

Dean and Sam break the stone they took from Dick with a hammer and their action awakes Castiel; affects pregnant women; and somehow affects a sixteen year-old teenager called Kevin Tran that has visions. They find a carved tablet inside the stone and soon the senseless Castiel that is insane informs that they have the Word of God, but he can not read it and he breaks the tablet. Out of the blue, Kevin steals the pieces of the Word of God and his touch fixes the tablet. Further, he is able to read the tablet and tells that it is about the Leviathans. Soon the angels Hester and Inias appear and tell that Kevin is the prophet of God. However Dean uses a symbol to get rid off the angels to give time to Kevin to translate the tablet. When two angels bring Kevin back home, there is a surprise waiting for them. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When they go back to Rufus' cabin, while Dean is showing Kevin around the house one of the weapons on the table is Death's hand scythe. Death took it back from Dean when they met, so the weapon shouldn't be there. See more »

Quotes

Sam Winchester: Here. Leviathan cannot be slain but by a bone of a righteous mortal washed in the three bloods of the fallen. Uh... it says we need to start with the blood of a fallen angel.
Castiel: Well, you know me. I'm always happy to bleed for the Winchesters.
Dean Winchester: What are you gonna do, Cas?
Castiel: I don't know. Isn't that amazing?

Did't Understand 1 Thing though ?
12 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Been a Die hard Fan of Supernatural have observed one thing in this episode that made me confused like anything that is its end.As we all know in the previous episode when there was a Prophet and when his life is in danger the heavens most Furious Wrath will fall upon that evil or anyone who is trying to harm that prophet right ... So when this time the Prophet was in danger as Lavaithan came and killed angels and took that prophet ? what was that i still was thinking as the next episode shocked me...as threatening to Prophet was continued hope you guys will cover up this by nice explanation in upcoming episodes please keep this going and :| please don't mess up Supernatural Team, love your work till the end ;)
