The Rapture

Important Moments:

Sam is starting to show signs of addiction to demon blood, and is also demonstrating a reliance on it when he fights, which doesn’t work out so well.

Near the end of the fight with the demons that kidnapped Jimmy’s family, Sam has a knife and a demon, and he drinks a little blood from the neck of the demon to be able to use his powers. However, when he looks up, Dean and Castiel and just looking at him. Talk about looks of disappointment. Also, mixed with a little WTF?

Jimmy is dying, and Castiel will be possessing Claire instead. Castiel tells him to take him back and let Claire go, to which Castiel agrees. As Castiel is leaving, Dean asks him what he was going to tell him, and Castiel says that he learned his lesson, that he serves heaven, not man, and certainly not Dean.

Funny Moments:

It’s so weird to hear Misha Collins talk in his normal voice as Jimmy.

Notable Plot Moments:
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Misha Collins, Castiel, Supernatural
Castiel visits Dean is his dream, where Dean is fishing. He tells Dean to meet him because it isn’t safe to talk there (inside his head!) because someone might be listening. Sam and Dean show up at the location and find a symbol that may have been used to expel angels. They then find Castiel on the floor, but it turns out Castiel isn’t home. It’s Jimmy, the man Castiel was possessing as a vessel.

Sam and Dean won’t let Jimmy return home because they think the demons may want to interrogate him. When Sam thinks Dean and Jimmy are sleeping, he goes outside to drink demon blood. (Why does he look like it’s so good? Just his desperation? Powers or not, that’s pretty gross.) While Dean is still sleeping and Sam is licking his hand like a junkie, Jimmy sneaks out of the motel room to go home.

Anna shows up in the back seat of the Impala as Dean is driving to find Jimmy. She tells them that Castiel was dragged back home, so something huge must have happened.

Jimmy’s friends come over, but it turns out that they’re demons, and they try to kill Jimmy and his family. Sam and Dean show up and save them and they all drive off in the Impala.

After explaining to Jimmy, who explains what happened to his family, Sam hot wires a car for Jimmy’s family to leave, and they drive off with Jimmy. After they are all out of sight, Jimmy’s daughter asks why he’s leaving again, and his wife slaps her across the face. It turns out his wife is possessed by a demon.

Jimmy’s wife calls and they go to meet her. Sam and Dean realize it is likely a trap. Inside, Jimmy’s wife knows he isn’t alone, and two demons walk in with Sam and Dean, who say something, but obviously intended to get caught. The wife shoots Jimmy and tells one of the demons to kill the daughter. As he is about to, the daughter looks up and is an angel. Castiel has possessed her. She kills the demons, other than the wife. Sam is fighting another demon, and after drinking some blood, he is able to exorcise the demon from Jimmy’s wife.

Bobby calls them and tells them to come over to his place because the apocalypse is happening. When they show up, Bobby and Dean trick Sam into walking into Bobby’s safe room, where they lock Sam in for his own protection.

Character Development:
Misha Collins, Castiel, Supernatural
In flashbacks, we see how Castiel approached Jimmy, and how Jimmy ended up becoming the vessel, including a demonstration of faith that involved Jimmy soaking his arm in a pot of boiling water.

Sam calls Ruby like a crazed junkie, jonsing for a fix.

Food Moment:
