What Has Happened in the Purgatory?
14 January 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

One year after his disappearance with Castiel, Dean returns from Purgatory bringing the demon Benny in his arm and releases the demon in a grave with his bones. Then he seeks out Sam and learns that his brother is not hunting anymore. Dean listens to the telephone messages and they track Kevin that is hidden from Crowley. When they find Kevin, he tells that the Word of God will allow vanquishing all demons and locking them in Hell forever.

"We Need to Talk About Kevin" begins without explanation about what has happened in the Purgatory with Dean and Castiel. The friendship of Dean with Benny is weird since Dean has always been radical in this regard. I am looking forward to see the sequence of this story. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Precisamos Falar Sobre o Kevin" ("We Need to Talk about Kevin")
