Warning!!!! If you haven't seen the latest episode of "Supernatural" and the preview for next week, do not read this! There is going to be plot-based speculation and discussion! You've been officially warned!
If everyone has recovered enough from the laughing and the laughing and then more laughing, there are a couple things I do want to talk about. Just a few, though, because we only got a few developments this week. Not that that's a bad thing, by any means. Right. Here goes.
The Loose Nukes Aren't So Loose Anymore
After an attempt on his life, Balthazar decided that crap was way too real and finally handed the weapons he stole over to Castiel. And in the process, he created a Trickster-esque diversion for Raphael. I think this was kind of big, actually. Sera Gamble has said in past interviews that Balthazar was the only angel who stood up for Cass when he got pulled back for Bible school back in season 4. So we know they've been friends and allies for a while. And this season, Balthazar has been a loose cannon. I'm not convinced he's still 100% behaving. In fact, I'm positive he's up to no good, and whatever he's doing probably has something to do with those souls he's been collecting. But it looks like the Civil War in heaven is starting to move toward its conclusion, and angels are choosing sides. I'm glad that Balthazar is helping Cass. And I'm super glad that Cass is such a super badass now that he has all those weapons. Take it to Raphael, Cass!
However, I, like Dean, am ready to know more about what exactly is going on in heaven. We know there's a civil war and we know the stakes are high. We've known that since episode three, so I'm ready for more information now.
Dean's Offer of a Better Life
Of course Dean would suggest to Sam that they stay in this world so that Sam can have a better life. I loved that he's still doing that for his brother, sacrificing his own happiness for Sam because it's basically what he's been doing forever, and it just showed me how much they're getting back on track. And Sam's reason for not staying, that they're not even brothers there, was so wonderful. He could have given a lot of reasons not to go back, but that's the one that mattered. I wanted to just hug them both after that.
What Was That Promo?
I haven't seen any spoilers or an episode description or anything for next week's episode, so I have no idea what is going on! But I like it! Rufus! Samuel better get his ass kicked! Strange things happening to people's brains! Was that Bryan Cranston, too? That guy is amazing! If he's on next week, I will be one happy fan. It's going to be an acting clinic, man.
That's all I've got for this one. Thoughts, theories, or comments? What was your favorite part of the episode? I love the part when Sam and Dean were trying to act, especially when Misha turned around and was like, "what the hell?"
