Supernatural – Season 2 – Episode 21
All Hell Breaks Loose: Part 1
We have reached part one of the finale, a really creepy messed up Hunger Games situation, before there was a Hunger Games.
The episode opens with Sam and Dean outside a diner. Dean waits in the car while Sam goes in to get them some food to go. While Sam is inside, the radio gets all staticky and Dean realizes something is wrong in the diner. He goes inside and finds everyone is dead and Sam is gone. The back door has sulfur on it.
Meanwhile, Sam wakes up in an old west ghost town that looks (ironically?) like the movie set from a western. He starts walking around and hears a noise. He grabs a wooden plank and is about to hit the person around the corner when he sees…it’s Andy, the guy who make people do things with his thoughts.
They hear a scream and run towards it. They open the door to the house and Ava was trapped inside. Ava is freaking out and Sam is still ignorant to the fact that she’s faking it.
They hear another voice calling out. They meet Jake and Lily.
After Sam, Andy, and Lily tell the other two about their abilities, Lily says her ability is that when she touches people, their hearts stop.
Meanwhile, Dean has gone to Bobby for help. Bobby tells him that there hasn’t been any demonic activity for the last month – nothing. Ash calls and tells Dean that he hasn’t found anything on Sam, but he found something huge. He’s very secretive and says he can’t tell Dean over the phone, but it will definitely help Dean find Sam.
After Sam tells them everything about the demon, Jake says he’s better off on his own and walks off by himself.
Sam figures out they are in Cold Oak, South Dakota, a town so haunted that all of the towns residents have fled.
Dean and Bobby get to the Roadhouse to find it has burned down. Dean and Bobby look through the bodies and don’t see Ellen, but they find Ash, who is, unfortunately, ash. (Sorry.)
Andy finds two large bags of salt, but Lily is missing. They go to look for her and find her hanging from a windmill in the town.
Andy says he can try to use his ability to communicate with Dean. All Sam has is a gas receipt. Andy uses his ability…
…Dean gets a massive headache and sees the bell in Cold Oak. Then it happens again and Dean sees both the bell and Sam. When he describes it to Bobby, he knows where Sam is.
Jake reveals that his ability is super strength.
Sam falls asleep and the yellow-eyed demon shows up in his dream and wants to take a walk. He tells Sam he’s trying to help him because Sam is the one he’s rooting for. This is where the yellow-eyed demon reveals the plan. He doesn’t need soldiers, he just needs a soldier. Only one of the people with special abilities will make it out alive. The demon tells Sam that he’s his favorite. The demon also says his mother was just bad luck, that she walked in on them at the wrong time.
When Sam wakes up, Ava is missing. Sam and Jake go to look for her, but she’s just hiding next to the house. After they leave, she lets the demon in to kill Andy and then starts screaming and says she just found him like that. Then Sam sees the broken line in the salt and he realizes it had to be Ava. She also is the only one with five months unaccounted for. It turns out Ava’s been there the entire time, and kids have shown up in batches of three and four, and she has killed them all. She can control demons and is about to do to Sam what she did to Andy, but Jake walks up behind her and breaks her neck.
…Meanwhile, Dean and Bobby arrive at the edge of Cold Oak and load up with weapons, having to walk the rest of the way on foot.
Sam and Dean’s reunion at the end of the episode is both a best and saddest moment. Even though I know what happens, it still makes me cry as Dean is holding Sam and telling him that he’ll take care of him. Especially because as we will see in the next episode, he’s not kidding. Oh my god…and Dean’s face when he realizes he’s dead….
Jake finds a room that looks like an old, abandoned classroom, and he hears children laughing. Always creepy. Then ‘I will not kill’ appears on the blackboard and a demon that looks like a little girl shows up. Sam comes it and hits it with an iron poker and it turns into a puff of black smoke and goes out the door.
The yellow-eyed demon shows Sam what really happened the night his mother died. He sees the yellow-eyed demon leaning over his crib. He cuts his wrist and drips blood into Sam’s mouth. When his mother comes in the room and sees the demon, she says, “It’s you.” She clearly knew him, or at least what he was. She came at him and that was when he killed her.
Jake realizes that they can’t both live, and obviously, he wants to live. Sam tries to convince him that they can fight the demon together and that he shouldn’t listen to the demon, but Jake doesn’t know Sam and isn’t convinced. And Sam, in his naive and stupid optimism, puts his knife on the ground to show Jake that he’s unarmed. Jake does the same, but then uses his strength to punch Sam and send him flying. They then have a fight that really exemplifies the term ‘knock down, drag out’ fight. Sam gets the upper hand, but defying predictions of evil, he can’t kill Jake. And that’s when he hears Dean calling him. Dean calls for Sam to look out behind him but it’s too late and Jake stabs Sam in the back, non-figuratively, and twists the knife.
Andy starts telling everyone that he’s been practicing and can now project images. He makes a guy who he doesn’t like see gay porn all the time.
Andy sees the receipt Dean signed as D. Hasselhoff and scoffs at it a bit. Understandably.
Sam is talking to Jake and he expresses his fear that Dean really isn’t going to be able to help him this time.
Sam goes into a diner. Dean requests onion rings and pie.
This week there is a big reveal about Mary Winchester, when we learn that she knows about demons. Prior to this, even the brothers were led to believe that John began hunting after Mary was killed, but now we see that there is much more to it than that.
