Crowley is back. After Gabriel, aka the Trickster, Crowley is my favourite bad guy.
He gets to utter some of the best lines – again.
“Where’s your moose?” He asks Dean, referring to Sam.
“I’ll wager you a thousand pounds my pup wins.” When he brings his own Hell Hound to deal with the Hell Hounds that are after them.
“When they’re getting their Grammys, they shouldn’t all be thanking God.” Telling Bobby just what he is actually capable of.
In this episode we begin to see just how far back the demon’s manipulation of Sam really goes. They went so far as to set him up with Jessica, just so they could kill her and get him back on the road with Dean.
This series has really bought a lot of seemingly lose ends together.
It is amazing how the writers have been building up to the climax of this season throughout the five years. So many small moments that now make sense.
Maybe that’s why I find this show so good. The planning that has gone into each series, each episode, when they probably had no idea that it would go on this long.
Or maybe they just took what came before and found a way to use it. Either way – damn good writing.
So the boys head off to track down Pestilence.
And Crowley goes off to visit with Bobby.
Hmmm…he’s after Bobby’s soul.
But will Bobby be stupid enough to agree?
