"The holy man, though he be distressed, does not eat food mixed with wickedness. The lion, though hungry, will not eat what is unclean”. Sakya Pandita

No, you are not seeing things. It is not the finale article, but still I have chosen “Carry On Wayward Son” as the focus of this article. It is not a coincidence if you read this quote from Father Lucca: “It's not about luck, son. It's about effort. All the time, I hear people saying the world's not perfect. And they're right. It's not. But do you use that as an excuse? Do you use it to excuse your own sins? Your failings and your laziness? Do you use it to give a bad man power, because the world's not perfect? Or do you work? Do you try and improve things in whatever way you can? Guys, the world will never be perfect, but if good men do good things, it can be better. Every day can get better. I-I'm sorry. I know I talk too much. I just... I just wanna go home.”  Now, isn’t that a cheer to “Carry On” for the boys?

He continues later: “I'm sorry. I didn't mean God would reach down and protect us. Of course that's not going to happen. But I believe all good things are God's things. And what your brother's doing, it's a good thing.”  Sam and Dean do a lot of good things and I think that is the biggest reason they keep doing what they do - the people that they have saved. That is why it was easy for Crowley to blackmail them by killing those people they had saved in the end of season eight. "Most Holy Man" repeated this part of what the show has been all about – “Saving people, hunting things, the family business.”

These videos are also special. They all have the same song Carry On Wayward Son". Most of the time I have only had fan videos made by fans. There are lot of talented people out there but these videos are different. How about fans making an adaption from “Carry On” with pretty Supernatural filming locations and clothes? Or the whole song interpreted by sign language?

Enjoy the videos!

Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas

 

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

 

Ah

 

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high

 

Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming,
I can hear them say

 

Carry on my wayward son,
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

 

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man,
Well, it surely means that I don't know

 

On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about, I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune,
But I hear the voices say

 

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more no!

 

Carry on,
You will always remember
Carry on,
Nothing equals the splendor
Now your life's no longer empty
Surely heaven waits for you

 

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry,
Don't you cry no more,

 

No more!

 

Kansas is an American rock band that became popular in the 1970s initially on album-oriented rock charts and later with hit singles such as "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind". The band has produced nine gold albums, three multi-platinum albums (Leftoverture 6x, Point of Know Return 4x, The Best of Kansas 4x), one other platinum studio album (Monolith), one platinum live double album (Two for the Show), and a million-selling single, "Dust in the Wind". Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for over 200 weeks throughout the 1970s and 1980s and played to sold-out arenas and stadiums throughout North America, Europe and Japan. "Carry On Wayward Son" was the second-most-played track on US classic rock radio in 1995 and No. 1 in 1997.

 

Quotes

 

Dean: Great. So we got Cas in Syria dodging bullets, trying to find fruit from the Tree of Life. We don't know where Lucifer is, so we can't get grace from an archangel. And what's the, uh, last ingredient of this spell we're never gonna find?

Sam: Blood of a most holy man.

Dean: A most holy man. What -- what - what does that mean?

Sam: No idea. I've been thinking maybe, uh, blood of a saint?

 

Father Lucca: You're not a believer.

Dean: Oh, I believe. Hell, I know. God? He doesn't give a damn about you or me or anyone else. So if you're expecting some sort of a-a miracle to happen, well... good luck.

Father Lucca: I'm sorry. I didn't mean God would reach down and protect us. Of course that's not going to happen. But I believe all good things are God's things. And what your brother's doing, it's a good thing.

Dean: Yeah, or a stupid thing.

Father Lucca: Or both. Many times, they can be the same.

 

Dean: What? Come on. I know that look. What's on your mind?

Sam: I don't know. Nothing. I mean -- I mean, you know... You ever feel like we're -- we're doing nothing but playing defense? You know, bouncing from one apocalypse to the next?

Dean: Well, it's not exactly our call.

Sam: I know that, and I'm not saying we don't do good. But -- but no matter how many people we save, there will always be more people that need saving. No matter how many monsters we kill--

Dean: There's always gonna be another one around the corner.

Sam: Exactly.

Dean: Mm-hmm.

Sam: You think we could ever change things? I mean, really change things? You know, stop all the monsters, all the bad?

Dean: That would be nice.

Sam: Yeah. So what are you thinkin'? Think that'll work?

Dean: I have faith.

Trivia and Minutiae

 

In the pre-broadcast video Inside: A Most Holy Man, Andrew Dabb and Bob Singer described the episode as an homage to 1940's noir movies. Two of the characters, Richard Greenstreet and Margaret Astor, are named after famous actors of the era: Sydney Greenstreet and Mary Astor.

 

Sam and Dean use the aliases "Sam and Dean Vaughn", possibly a reference to musician brothers Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan, although the name is spelled differently in the closed captions.

 

Sam: And what kind of item is it that we're talking about?

Greenstreet: The skull of St. Peter.

Saint Peter was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus in the Christian tradition and is considered by Roman Catholics to have been the first Pope.

When Dean is in the cafe and he flirts with the girl reading the book on demons, this is referencing a scene in the 1946 noir film The Big Sleep where Humphrey Bogart is in a bookshop and flirts with a girl wearing glasses.
