I think a team of different writers wrote this episode because SPN hit it out of the park. This was one hell of an episode. It felt longer but then I realised why, it hit the ground running from the start. No punches were pulled. It really delivered. The showrunners built Michael into a good and dark villain. The cast gave some great performances, especially Jensen Ackles. Some good lines and moments in the show such as Dean now saying He is the cage. This was almost like a season finale where the villain has been locked up, so it will be interesting to see what follows but I have faith. To top it off, a mysterious ending is delivered with Dean given a chapter or version of his life from the reaper. Who knows what was in it?

8.5/10
