With only three episodes left in the season, every one counts. Post your thoughts on tonight’s big episode which introduces the Scribe of God, Metatron (an episode written by the one and only Ben Edlund). Keep reading for my quick thoughts or click here for my full recap.
There seemed to be a whole lot of plot in this episode, probably to set up the final two hours of season 8. The result was a whole bunch of great stuff.
Kevin’s back with Sam and Dean after standing his ground against Crowley and the fake Sam and Dean (how great were all those scnes of Crowley directing?). Though, if I’m being honest, they didn’t really NEED Kevin since Metatron already knew the third trial.
Also, I can’t decide if all the random Garth references this season are just for the sake of plot, or because his whereabouts will be important. Probably the former.
Kevin’s video message to Sam and Dean really stood out for me. I loved watching him be angry about the fact that he’s probably dead, but still recognize that the mission is important.
Every time the show references Biggersons, it makes me smile. Especially since they have an item that is “Heart Smart, Beer-Battered.” That’s just funny.
What’s cooler, bullets with a Devil’s Trap carved on them or bullets made out of angel-killing swords? Cuz they’re both kinda bad-ass.
Finally, can we all agree that the “Sam is becoming God” theory is the best way to explain what’s happening to him? He’s being “purified” (cleanliness is next to Godliness), he can hear Metatron’s frequency and he has a crystal clear memory about things that happened when he was very, very young, almost like he’s becoming omniscient (at least about his own history).
All signs point to Sam becoming God, even Metatron, who literally used the phrase “becoming God” in the episode to describe writing a book.
