Wow. Now THAT’S an episode of Supernatural, and if this is a sign of the endgame, the last two episodes are going to be terrific.
I loved so many things about this episode, from the comedy to the darkness to a major character being killed.
Let’s start with the death. Abaddon is finally gone, but she went out in style. The actual death scene, with her raised in the air as Dean impaled her with the First Blade, was beautiful and a fittingly epic ending for a long-time villain.
And everything that led up to it? So now the Mark of Cain gives Dean super, maybe even demonic, powers. The look of dread in Abaddon’s eyes when Dean somehow faught back against her was fantastic. I’m sticking with my “Dean is becoming a demon” theory (like a reversal of Crowley becoming human),
All of the scenes between Crowley, Abaddon and his son, Gavin, were hilarious. The moment when Gavin guessed that they were both angels and Crowley and Abaddon, in unison, responded with “Wow” made me laugh harder than anything this season.
My big question is this: Sam said that altering with the past can have major time ripples in the future. Since Gavin is sticking around in the 21st century, does this mean big problems ahead? I feel like the ramifications of that event might be a set-up for the big story arc of season 10.
Then there’s “Commander Cas.” I hope I’m not alone in thinking that Cas staged the assassin attack himself just so he could blame it on Metatron and trick Gadreel into working with him. Given all the double-crossing and triple-crossing Crowley did, it made me suspicious.
Overall, this was a superb episode and a great way to lead us into the final arc of season 9. Now that Hell is dealt with, we can focus on Heaven.
