Point of No Return

Notable Plot Moments:

Dean is writing a note to Bobby and folding his leather jacket and car keys into a box to mail to Bobby, as he’s decided to say yes to Michael. Sam shows up to stop him, and he’s brought Castiel, who takes them to Bobby’s. There, Dean and Bobby get into it. They are interrupted by Castiel getting a sudden headache, announcing something’s happening, and disappearing.

Castiel is in the woods and sees the ground moving. Before he can investigate, he is attacked by two men/angels/demons. After killing them, he looks back to the ground and it’s a person reaching out. Castiel pulls them out of the ground. He brings him back to Bobby’s house where Sam and Dean recognize the guy as their brother, Adam.

Adam tells them the angels chose him to be Michael’s vessel. Sam begs Adam to give them some time.

Sam and Dean have a conversation in the safe room where he implores Dean to change his mind. Dean feels that they’ve gotten so many people killed, it’s time to stop. Dean escapes. So does Adam. Dean goes to a questionably crazy guy on the street to try to get the angels attention, but only manages to grab the attention of Castiel, who attacks him. They have a fight and Castiel uses his angel powers to knock Dean out.

In heaven, Zachariah tells Adam that they tricked him and that he’s just the bait, not the one who is going to fight the devil.

Sam and Dean show up with a plan. Zachariah does get Dean to agree to be the vessel by trying to kill Sam and Adam, but Dean stabs him in the head. Sam and Dean escape but Adam gets trapped in the room and disappears. Meanwhile, Castiel escapes the angels by carving the angel teleportation symbol onto his own chest.

The defining moment of the season: Screw destiny…I say we take the fight to them.”

Character Development:

When Sam and Adam are talking, it is very evident that Adam and Dean are related.

When Sam and Dean talk, their positions are reversed. It’s now Sam arguing for them to stick together and fight as a family, and Dean who wants to go off on his own, because he has lost faith in Sam.

When Castiel and Dean are fighting, Castiel shows that he is finally getting his own sense of self. He’s mad at Dean because he gave up everything to help him, and the way he sees it, Dean is just giving up without considering that.

When Dean wakes up from his Cas-nap, Sam fills him in and tells Dean that they’re bringing him with them. Dean presents the evidence to him as to why it’s a bad idea and even tells him if the tables were turned that he would let Sam rot in there. Castiel and Bobby both think it’s a bad idea to bring Dean. As Dean points out, either it’s a trap to make him say yes, or it’s not a trap and he will say yes anyway, which he tells Sam he will. Sam just believes that Dean will do the right thing. This is a moment of real growth and trust for Sam. In a way, he’s extending an olive branch to Dean for the part he played in everything that has happened, not only with the world and the apocalypse, but in the relationship between Sam and Dean, and between them as brothers.
