: Lucifer rose, the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse rode into town, the Winchesters split up and Cas left to find God.NOW
gets a little weird, with Dean and Cas teaming up on a wild and crazy adventure (including a trip to a whore house) while Sam spends some time in bed with his dead girlfriend (and another man).
This episode of Supernatural
starts off in the best way imaginable, with Sam in bed, shirtless. On behalf of women and gay men everywhere, thank you Supernatural
. In his sleep, he's visited by Jessica, who is very coy about whether she's a dream or not. She tries to explain to Sam that he's not normal, that he's always had darkness inside of him, and that from the moment they met, she was fated to die. Wow, Jessica is a real bummer.
Equally disappointing are Sam's sideburns. I asked our Supernatural Twitter fans if they were grossed out by his rather disturbing sideburns, and the consensus is that they are not a good look on him. This is strange because I would assume everything would be a good look on Jared Padalecki. But those sideburns need to go.
After the bedtime conversation, we flash back to one week earlier, just after the Winchester brothers separated. We get a pretty great montage contrasting their lives. Sam washes tables in his new job as a bartender, Dean washes the Impala. Sam cuts lemons, Dean uses a knife of his own to kill a vampire after telling him to "Eat it, Twilight
." That is the fourth best quote of the episode. We'll get to the other three.
To simplify matters, I'll start with Dean's story. He gets visited by Cas, who needs some help. It turns out Cas' best bet for finding God is to trap and interrogate the archangel who killed him, Raphael. This revelation prompts the third best quote of the episode when Dean responds, "You were wasted by a Teenage Mutant Ninja Angel?"
Dean agrees to help, but only if they can drive, because the last time Cas teleported him somewhere, he couldn't poop for a week. TMI, Deano. They drive up to Maine where Cas has a report that a local deputy saw Raphael's human vessel.(1) (2) (3) (4) NEXT>>
