Prophet Kevin has deciphered enough of the tablet to set the next next to enable closing the gates of hell: to rescue a soul from hell, and their choice falls on hunt mentor Bobby. Dean wants to take over from weakening Sam; who insists it must fall to the same person and starts believing to be destined. The brothers summon and trap a crossroads demon and torture him till he discloses that reapers can be bribed to smuggle one out of hell or in this case in. Ajay accepts, but Crowley comes after him once Sam is delivered in purgatory with a portal appointment. Dean gets his demonic mate Benny, who can't get used to honest life anyway, to set up a plan B, which proves desperately needed. Crowley prepares a grim surprise, but gets one from Naomi too.

Back to Normal

Back to the excellence that I have come to expect from Supernatural. Just main story line, not a side adventure, with Sam going to hell to free Bobby (awesome) and send him to his rightful place in heaven. Something that bugged me a bit about this is that they couldn't figure out how to get in or out of purgatory for half a season, and then they figured it out twice in an episode with the freelancing reaper and then bailing Sam back out. Crowley caught Kevin finally, so that could be the very end of him thankfully, but has put a stop on the trial train that Sam is on. Further, I don't think this trial thing is going to work, as they would never put the kabosh on Crowley, as he's like the second best character in the series behind Dean at this point.
