|"Steve" contributing to modern society.|
See, people have been apparently spontaneously exploding, though of course we know it must be some kind of angel wizardry because we see one of the people go kabluey in the opener thanks to an angel hand to the forehead. Only this time it blasts pink spray everywhere. That's a new one. The only thing that seems to be connecting these deaths is that all of the victims seem to have some sort of depression.
Dean's not an idiot, though, so he figures that if Cas knew about this stuff going down, then he's probably nearby. How he finds him at the particular gas-n-sip he's working at, I don't know, but then Dean's a hunter who specializes in such things, so...? But if Dean can find him that easily, he doesn't seem that well hidden. ANYway, Dean finds him and Cas basically is like ummm I'm just living my human life and that's fine and btw my boss asked me out on a date tonight so leave me alone. But Dean is having none of that and convinces him to go along on the case for at least a little bit, in case he knows anything helpful.
|The unlikely trio?|
Basically, he calls up Abaddon, only to find out that her new regime in Hell equals cashing in on all of his deals early, which Crowley is not exactly thrilled about. She is not one to be fearful of any of his bluster, so he's basically screwed for now since it doesn't seem like any demons are particularly on the hunt for him. He translates the spell stuff, only to find out that there is no way to reverse it. No getting the angels back in to Heaven. That is, if he's telling the truth.
|Let's be honest, this one is just for hotness factor.|
Dean goes to find the angel, only first he has to drop Cas off for his big date. Sadly, though, it turns out it wasn't a date after all. Rather, his boss was asking him to babysit while she goes on a date with someone else. While she's gone, of course, the bad angel killer shows up. He was able to find Cas due to his epic amounts of man pain about being human and not able to help his angel brethren anymore. Things do not look so good for Cas, but Dean figures out the angel is there and shows up just in time. Though he gets knocked down, he does throw an angel blade to Cas just in time to kill the Ephram dude.
In the end, Dean drops Cas back off at the gas-n-sip. Cas is wondering what he can do to help the angels, but Dean, having heard from Sam, knows there's no way to get them back to Heaven, so rather than tell Cas that bit of news, just says they'll take care of it and he can keep on his merry human way. Oh Dean, always with the lies.
Meanwhile, back at the bunker, Sam notices a missing needle and finds Crowley plunging more of Kevin's blood into himself. As we may remember, the human blood makes Crowley feel more human feelings, so basically he's wanting to feel them more by doing it to himself. Interesting...
- I totally thought when Sam was in the bathroom by himself cleaning that blood off that he was going to have some moment where he was like, something is not right here. Not about the blood, but about himself. Not quite yet, I guess!
- Do we really think there's no way to get the angels back to Heaven? There must be, just not by reversing the spell.
- Will Castiel ever get his grace back? It's actually kind of nice to see him doing the human thing. And honestly I don't miss the trenchcoat, though I'm sure others are in a tizzy.
- It was really sad when Cas was realizing that he wasn't there for a date but rather to babysit. Poor guy can't catch a break.
- What happens if Crowley keeps injecting himself? Does he become fully human, or just remembers more human emotions, or...? I do like the development that he's interested in doing it to himself, shows that it wasn't something that wore off, but rather had a lasting effect.
High School Girl: Why can't he dump me on Facebook like a normal person?
Dean: My dates usually end when I run out of singles.
Dean: Listen to me, always open the door for her, okay? Ask a lot of questions, they like that. And uh, and if she says she's happy to go Dutch, she's lying. Go get 'em tiger.
Crowley: I keep my agreements.
