Storyline

Sam is unable to sleep for many days with Lucifer disturbing him. When a car hits Sam, he goes to the hospital and the doctor in charge sends him to the psychiatric wing to help him to sleep, but Lucifer continues to drive him crazy. Sam befriends the patient Marin and helps her to get rid of the ghost of her brother. Meanwhile Dean calls Bobby's friends expecting to find someone that might help his brother. One hunter tells him about Emmanuel, a man apparently with healing power. When Dean meets Emmanuel, he recognizes his face. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Overstuffed
7 May 2020 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

Much of this episode is quite good. Cas coming back and taking on Sam's hellscars is a needed plot development. The plotting is a bit stiff on this point. Likewise, Sam slowly losing his mind because of hallucifer is also good. But the episode tacks on a pointless ghost story to pad out the run time. Overall this is a weaker episode that had too much going in it.
