Sam and Eileen are faced with the brutal truth. Meanwhile Dean and Cass work together in the hopes of getting a step ahead of Chuck.

This was a great way to come back!

I sincerely hope that leviathan was lying about Benny.

I'm really happy that Dean forgave Castiel.  I knew it was going to happen, but that prayer scene... man, I shed a single man tear.

And then Castiel appears, and he tells Dean he heard his prayer... a couple more man tears.

Those glimpses into the future... wow, that's very, very, VERY dark.  The whole thing got harder and worse as each glimpse passed.  I do wonder, though, if they were real.  Could they have been illusions to trick Sam, sort of like what Dean went through in season 5's "THE END"?  Or maybe a memory from another universe?  A combination?

And Billie and Jack... what the hell?  I wonder if the reason Chuck wanted him dead was because he had the power to stop, trap, or kill Chuck.

A thought occurs to me... what if Jack traps Chuck, or kills him, and he takes his place and keeps the balance so the monsters don't win?

Remember back in season 5, "I BELIEVE THE CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE"?  A child born of a human and demon had ENORMOUS power over... well, anything and everything.  (Though it does make you wonder, since demons are basically human souls that have been turned and corrupted in hell.)  A child born from a human and an angel?  That has to be multiple levels higher.  I think Jack will be the new god.


Side note:  given dialogue from "THERE WILL BE BLOOD" in season 7, I always thought Eve was a sister or something of the leviathans.  But it turns out she was their mother?  Did I mishear or misread the captions?  Though it may be possible the leviathans simply hate her... plenty of examples of children ending up hating their patents, so that may explain the animosity laden dialogue that leviathan had with the Vampire Alpha.

By the way, I forget to mention one of my favorite bits of this episode.

Dean punching God. "You know I had to try."

I really smiled at that moment.

^^ Yeah, I liked that.  :D

Well, Cass has certainly come a long way since his naive bumpkin days-- he not only called out Dean, but bossed him around a couple of times in this one. So has Dean, for that matter.  That look of hopelessness on his face in Purgatory (foreshadowing Sam's predicament) was horrifying, and his plaintive apology-by-means-of-confession was heartbreaking. But Cass heard his prayer, and all is well in that corner of the Universe.

But not so well in the other Winchester corner.  Dark Chuck has really gone Old Testament on the boys.  I'm a little surprised that he was able to make Sam lose hope with his little not-so-wonderful life scenarios.  Chuck is obviously not above lying.  Another surprise is that they erased the magical connection between Sam and Chuck so soon.  It all seems pretty pointless now.

And for crying out loud, Eileen is gone. And on the "I have to after what I did" pretext.  Well, at least she's not dead again....

Another great moment was Dean's calm acceptance of Sam's failure to smite Chuck.  Sam said he believed the visions and "That's good enough for me."

And almost as if to balance Eileen's departure, Jack is finally back!  And Billie!  And... "It's time."  For what?   It actually would be pretty cool if Jack took over as the new God to keep the balance of the Universe, because he was basically raised by Sam and Dean-- it would, in essence, be their heroic nature that saved all existence.
