Notable Plot Moments:
Castiel goes to Dean to ask him to help find Rafael so they can trap him and interrogate him.
They go to Maine and interview a sheriff who witnessed an explosion at a gas station. He tells them about a man who acted strangely, looking like he was praying, at the scene. Dean and Castiel go to visit him in the hospital, but the angel has already left, and the man is in bad shape. Castiel tells Dean that it would be much worse for him.
Sam sees a hail storm followed by fire, and thinks it might be signs, so he calls Bobby to get other hunters to deal with it. The hunters find out about Sam and threaten to kill the woman that works in the bar if he doesn’t drink some demon blood and kill the demons that killed their friends. When he refuses, they physically force him to do it.
However, then Sam is strong and he gets the upper hand and threatens to kill them.
Castiel goes back to the hospital where the vessel is and summons Rafael. They leave and go back so a ramshackle house where Rafael shows up and threatens to bring Dean to Michael and/or torture him. Dean lights up the floor and the flames trap Rafael.
Rafael tells them that they brought on the apocalypse because god is gone and they’re tired. They want paradise.
Sam is having hallucinations of Jess throughout the episode, and then it turns out that it’s really Lucifer, and he tells Sam that he is his vessel.
As Sam and Dean have made their choices, we see them each going on with their new situations. Sam is working in a bar, and Dean is continuing hunting, the camera cutting between the two, as Dean stabs a vampire, Sam is slicing a lemon.
Dean finds out that Castiel is a virgin.
Dean confesses that he’s having more fun with Castiel than he has had in a long time with Sam, and Castiel isn’t even that much fun. Looking out for Sam really took a toll on Dean.
This is the episode where it is revealed that Sam is the vessel for Lucifer, the representation of evil, while we already know that Dean is the vessel for Michael, who is at least theoretically the representation of good. With the whole angel storyline, it’s a little Cain and Abel.
Castiel goes undercover with Dean.
Dean takes Castiel to a strip club.
