Things are about to get even more heavy as we countdown the days for the epic battle between heaven and hell, also known as Supernatural's season 5 finale. This week, however, it's all about putting Sam and Dean's master plan in motion in preparation to trap Lucifer.
Last Week's Recap: Hotel of the Gods
If you recall last week, Gabriel mentioned another way to take down Lucifer which gave Sam and Dean, as well as the viewers, a glimmer of hope. The new plan is to collect all four rings of the Four Horsemen so that they can lock in Lucifer in the cage where he came from. Since they already have the rings of Famine and War, they just need to get the rings of Pestilence and Death, which they attempt to do in tonight's episode "The Devil You Know."Videos: Sneak Peek at "The Devil You Know"
To locate the Horsemen, Sam and Dean are forced to seek the help of Demon Crowley, whose real intentions are still questionable at this point if you ask me. I'm still a bit burned by Ruby's deception last season so even though Crowley has already helped the Winchesters by handing them the Colt and supporting them in their fight against Lucifer previously, I'm not sure if he can really be trusted.

Unfortunately, Sam and Dean, who also remain doubtful of the demon, have no choice. Crowley leads them to Brady (guest star Eric Johnson), the Handler for Pestilence (guest star Matt Frewer) and Death. The only problem is instead of giving the Horsemen's locations, Brady sets Pestilence after the Winchesters.(Image courtesy of The CW)
