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

Funny dialog (especially Castiel) with a new unwilling hero.
6 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sam and Dean take 'the package' to some dingy room in South Chicago and start to hammer the stone. Each blow brings thunder and lightning. "That sound like somebody saying no, wait, stop to you?" (At this time you would think they would know better than to just start messing around with stuff they know nothing about!) "Yeah, Oh well" As they reveal the tablet inside the rock, poor Kevin Tran seems to get possessed. This action also wakes up Castiel, who has been under the watchful eye of Meg.

The boys don't recognize the writing on the tablet. Kevin is falling in out of whatever has possessed him. Sam and Dean go to see Cas. They find an angel who is not quite acting like himself (what's new about that?) "Pull my finger, what, my finger pull it". Meg has become Castiel's new best friend. Cas knows that the tablet is the hand writing of Metatron (the word of God).

As the boys bicker about Castiel's new attitude, Kevin steals the tablet. Kevin turns out to be a prophet who can read the tablet and translates it for the boys. Except for a couple angels trying to interfere unsuccessfully, that's about it. Oh yeah, turns out that, leviathans are more powerful than angels and Kevin is taken by one. The majority of this episode is enjoyable because of Castiel's bizarre behavior, and the comical dialog. "This looks like a sex torture dungeon, is this a sex torture dungeon?"
