Supernatural: Episode 4.3 "In the Beginning" Recap
Supernatural: Episode 4.3 "In the Beginning" Recap
Dean Winchester is under a lot of stress these days.  First he goes to Hell and suffers horribly for four months, then he gets yanked out of the pit by a snappily-dressed angel, then he finds out that it's his job to stop demon leader Lilith from unleashing Lucifer upon the earth.  With all of those issues, it's probably best that Sam is keeping his newly honed demon-killing mojo to himself.

Tonight's episode of Supernatural finds Dean in yet another strange situation, as Castiel transports him back to 1973 to hang out with younger versions of his parents.  I'm betting it won't be a warm and fuzzy family reunion.

After two weeks dealing with angels and Lucifer, tonight's Supernatural finally gets back into the old Mary Winchester mythology.  The episode begins with Sam (Jared Padalecki) meeting up with Ruby 2.0, which is the perfect opportunity for Castiel to drop in on Dean.  The angel tells him that he has to "stop it," at which point he touches Dean's forehead and sends him back to Lawrence, Kansas circa 1973.  Dean heads into a local diner and chats up a young guy who just happens to be John Winchester.  Dean's mind is, of course, blown when he figures out what's going on.

Dean runs into Castiel as he follows his father around, and the angel once again cryptically tells him that he has to stop something.  Usually ghosts are the cryptic ones, but I guess on Supernatural it's the angels that are incapable of explaining themselves thoroughly.  Dean follows John to a car lot, where he suggests his father buy the '67 Chevy Impala instead of an old VW van.  That's certainly one of the smartest decisions John will ever make.  Dean introduces himself as Dean Van Halen and assures John that the car will still be bad-ass when it's 40.  Dean tries to get info about the mysterious event he has to stop, but John hasn't smelled any sulfur or noticed any strange happenings lately.
