The Boys Are Back in Town
(Probably Time To Flee)
The fourth step in a long journey through a season: not about creating new dramas or leaving us breathless with anxiety about what’s coming up. Instead, episode four has been oddly insightful through the years; not to mention the foreshadowing.

Matter of facts, revelations and declarations about who the Winchesters are, what they stand for and the overall attitudes of the season: the episode four themes. As a whole, the fourth episode is not one of dramatic twists or cliff-hanger moments; rather it’s an episode of catharsis for Sam or Dean or a tip of the hat to the audience, letting us know a mindset that’s key. So – what was the most revealing? Which played the biggest role later on? Any from the early days that you find ironic given where we’re at now?
