When the Levee Breaks

Important Moments:
Misha Collins, Castiel, Supernatural
Dean calls Castiel for help, who tells him that Sam could do it, but the amount of demon blood he would need to consume would change him irreparably. Castiel also tells Dean that the powers that be believe that Dean, not Sam, will be the one to kill Lilith. Castiel then gets Dean to turn himself over to heaven in order to save Sam.

While Sam is going through his withdrawal, his handcuffs open and the door opens, letting him out, but there’s no one there. After he leaves, the camera shows Castiel was the one to let him out.

Ruby reveals that Lilith was the first demon created by Lucifer.

Later, when they are determining which car Sam stole, Bobby assumes he stole the anonymous Honda. Dean agrees, because the other car is a white Escalade, and Sam would never steal that, which is exactly why he did.

Notable Plot Moments:

Bobby points out that it might not be the best time to have this argument with Sam. He questions if what they’re doing is because they love him too much.

Meanwhile, Sam’s next hallucination is of his mother, with a giant blood spot on her torso. She gives him an argument about why he should use his demonic powers for good. Sam’s next hallucination is of Dean telling him that God chose him over Sam. Hallucination Dean then tells Sam that he’s a monster.

After being broken out, Sam goes straight to Ruby for more demon blood.

Character Development:

Bobby thinks they are killing Sam by leaving him tied up. He thinks the withdrawal is killing him. Dean still refuses to give Sam any demon blood, saying that if he dies, at least he dies human.

Dean has finally reached his breaking point, telling sam, “If you walk out that door, don’t ever come back.” Sam leaves, and the titular levee, otherwise known as the brothers relationship, is broken. At least for now.
