Did You Know?


Death's comment to Castiel is reminiscent of Senator Lloyd Bentsen's infamous quote during the 1988 Vice-Presidential debate. See more »


Bobby indicates that fulgurites are very rare, and created by lightning hitting sand and crystallizes into a perfect shape of its self. While the method of a fulgurite's creation is accurate, they are not necessarily rare, as one can make 'homemade' versions, using a lightning rod or rebar on a stormy night. Bobby also indicates that they need a large one. The length of the fulgurite used in the summoning spell was about 12 inches or so, but in reality, some of the largest that have been on display measured 13 to 16 feet long. See more »


Bobby Singer: But that door only opens in the eclipse, and that's over!
Death: [nonchalant] I'll make another... 3:59 Sunday morning, just before dawn. Be punctual! Don't thank me... clean up your mess.
[pauses without glancing back at them]
Death: Try to bind me again... you'll die before you start. Nice pickle chips, by the way!

Meet the New Boss
31 December 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Castiel is corrupted by his power of God and truly believes that he is the New God, destroying the false messengers of God and making a new deal with Crowley. Meanwhile Sam is tormented by his recollections of hell and tries to keep sane.

Dean, Sam and Bobby try to find a means of stopping Castiel and Dean uses a spell to chain the Death and force him to kill Castiel. However, the former angel releases the upset Death from his chains, but Death discloses dark secrets to Dean about Sam and the forces that have been released together with the souls from Purgatory.

"Meet the New Boss" is the conclusion of the Sixth Season of Supernatural and the promising beginning of this new season. Now the Winchester brothers will have to struggle against the dangerous Leviathans. My vote is nine.
