Castiel refuses to kill Metatron, telling him that Metatron was right about Castiel being tired of having his strings pulled and he won't let the former angel manipulate him into letting Metatron off easy. Castiel asks Metatron again about the Darkness and Metatron reveals the truth about it: I'm interested to hear your take on Metatron's wisdom in the comments. Sadly, despite reading countless thousands millions? The secretarial angel got to play the hero at just the right moment, grabbing Kevin from Crowley's clutches, but Kevin handled himself pretty well this episode without any assistance.
Not only was he wise to Crowley's scheme with his too-nice demons, he managed to lure them into a devil's trap, send a failsafe email to the Winchesters and grab the bottom half of the tablet to decipher the third trial even as Crowley was beating on him. You go, Kevin Tran! It was a tough week for Sam, between a fever, blurry vision and a pesky case of resonating, but that did mean that we got to hear the phrase "farty donkey," so it all seemed worthwhile.
Ignoring the continuity error that Dean has supposedly never been to the Grand Canyonthe idea that the trials might be "purifying" Sam's demonic blood is kind of beautiful, especially since that aspect of him has been a constant source of guilt and insecurity. That scene in particular was beautifully played by Padalecki and Ackles.
Despite apparent fan concern that Dean isn't being given enough to do something that was true in the decidedly mediocre "Taxi Driver" but was not the case here, in my view I still don't feel that Sam being the active participant in the trials means that Dean is doing nothing but "caretaking.
He had the pivotal "closing the gates of hell" conversation with Metatron and got the very ominous warning that "that's what this has all been about, the choices your kind make.
You're going to have to weigh that choice. What is it going to take to do this, and what will the world be like after it's done? In the first half of the season, Dean's storyline was more physical, thanks to his time in Purgatory, while Sam was passive thanks to his romantic flashbacks with Amelia. Both brothers are still solving problems independently as well as together, and have had numerous chances to kick ass and save each other this season, so the brother vs. Sam's demon blood and Azazel's plan for him have been the driving force of the narrative since the first scene of the pilot, so it makes sense that the writers want to bring some closure to that storyline, but it certainly hasn't hindered my enjoyment or engagement with Dean's stories for the past eight years.
Structurally, Sam's arc might be "Supernatural's" plot engine, but Dean and his unyielding love for his family have always been the show's heart for me, and I'm glad that the series hasn't lost sight of how important that emotional core is.
With Kevin seemingly left in Metatron's reliable care, and a bruised and battered Castiel choosing an inadvisable method of hitchhiking, the stage is certainly set for two powerful episodes to close the season.
