Castiel makes a comeback in this week’s episode and let’s say Dean has a mixture of emotions going on. He’s definitely glad that Castiel is back, but he is quite suspicious on how Castiel got out of Purgatory in the first place. Fortunately for us, we didn’t have to wait long to find out how Castiel got out. By the closure of the episode, we learn that an angel named Naomi had an army of Angels rescue Castiel from Purgatory. As a compromise, Castiel will report the actions of Sam and Dean to her. Castiel of course refuses, but is told that he won’t have any recollection of these check-ins afterwards (he doesn’t even know he’s checking in).
Aside from Castiel’s return, Kevin and his mother Mrs. Tran also reappear on the Winchester’s radar. Crowley would have not been able to snatch Kevin and bring him back to his lair if Mrs. Tran did not try to pay a witch into making a bomb. The witch ends up double crossing Kevin and Mrs. Tran, causing Mrs. Tran to turn to Sam and Dean for help.
Sam and Dean along with Castiel were able to locate Crowley and the trio head off to save Kevin. After taking Kevin hostage, Crowley tortures Kevin into translating the tablet aloud to him. Kevin did not read far because the trio arrives and interrupts Crowley’s interrogation. Amidst the struggle, Castiel uses his angel powers to break the tablet in half, with Crowley fleeing with half of one.
Dean has been feeling super guilty about leaving Castiel in Purgatory since the beginning of this season, but this episode reveals that it was Castiel’s decision to stay there. This comes as a shock to Dean, but I feel that he will be better in time. He just needs to come to terms with everything that just happened. Also, now that the Winchesters know that there are other tablets out there, are they going to go searching for them like Indiana Jones would? I’m glad that the episode is focusing once more on the story at large. Are there any thoughts on this episode?
