Back to the arsenal of joy, aka the church basement, and the manipulation Sam just warned about continues! Leah comes in all teary. The angels are angry. They said they can't go to paradise. Don't worry people, it's overrated anyway. This gets Jane in a tizzy since she's fixed on seeing her dead son again. Leah says the angels gave clear commandments but some people aren't listening. Sounds like another red shirt is about to get it.
Sam is back at the motel reading a book. He puts that in his bag, picks up another and as the shot moves back up, Castiel is there! He's at the refrigerator. "I got your message." I love these stealth entrances. Castiel goes on. "It's long your message. I find the sound of your voice grating." Sam knows something is wrong. "Are you"¦drunk?" "No," Castiel answers while staggering forward. "Yes." We get the patented Sam Winchester stare of disbelief. "What the Hell happened to you?" "I found a liquor store," Cas answers. "And?" "And I drank it." Ha! Best angel humor ever. Angsty angels are fun.
Castiel steps forward and stumbles a bit, so Sam catches him and asks if he's okay. Castiel motions him closer. He whispers in Sam's ear. "Don't ask stupid questions." Ha! It's about time someone tells Sam that! He's been asking that a lot lately when the answer is so obvious. Castiel moves onto what Sam wants. There have been tons of demons attacks in the town"¦Castiel cuts him off, asking if there's been any sign of angels. Sort of, a prophet. Castiel wants to know who. Leah Gideon. Nope, not a prophet. Sam is pretty sure she is. Castiel is not only drunk, but quite grumpy. "The names of all the prophets, they're seared into my brain. Leah Gideon is not one of them." So what is she? More coming on that.
Dean is walking by Paul's bar and hears a scuffle. Michael Shanks and Paul are fighting. I guess they're trying to drive Paul out of town. You know, cause he's immoral and all. Pastor Gideon is trying to referee. Paul tells Dean his friends are trying to run him out of town and he's not taking this well. Michael Shanks claims it's not their choice and he has to go for everyone's sake. Paul points out the sad fact that they grew up together and that he stood up in his wedding. Jane, in full bitch mode now, says that was then and now he's standing against the flock. This is a town of believers and he's not one of them. Oh, just wait until you get your comeuppance bitch.
Paul won't leave. They'll have to drag him out. Michael Shanks goes to do that but Dean steps in. They don't want to do that. He tries anyway so Dean punches him. During the mayhem a gun goes off and Paul sinks to the ground. Jane, that bitch, has shot him. That's it, she's banished from the red head club! "No one's going to stop me from seeing my son again." You better hope he's in Hell lady, cause that's the only way you're seeing him. Dean and Pastor Gideon tend to Paul, but it's too late. Um, shouldn't this bitch be going to jail or something for this?
You know what, the 90210 ads are really irritating too. I've seen lately how that show can't even crack 1.5 million viewers on original episodes. You think there's a reason for that? Hmm? Now I want to see Damon Salvatore sink his vampire teeth into these white bred rich kids' necks. All while a bloody Chuck Bass is running by screaming being chased by Sam and Dean. The tagline, CW Thursdays Kick Everyone's Ass!
Ahem. Nah, one more time. Bwahhhhhhhh! Okay, its daylight. A stunned Dean enters the room. A worried Sam gets up saying that they went looking for him and he notices the blood on his hands. Dean tells the story. It's not his blood. Paul is dead because Jane shot him. "It's starting," Castiel says sitting on the couch. Dean wants to know what's starting and where the Hell Castiel has been. Oh, now you care Dean? "On a bender," Cas says angrily. Still grumpy I see. Dean repeats that incredulously, but Sam confirms. "Yeah, he's still pretty smashed." Cas does his not of "import" line and wants to talk about what's happening. Dean's ready to listen.
Sam starts while Dean FINALLY decides to wash the blood from his hands. Leah is not a real prophet. I'm trying to figure out if that's a cow's head on the red leather couch Sam and Castiel are sitting on. In Minnesota? Shouldn't it be a Loon or something like that? Anyway, so what is Leah? "The whore," Castiel answers. A little harsh for the preacher's daughter don't you think? Castiel though is talking about a real being, someone who rises when Lucifer walks the earth. The Whore of Babylon. Oh, that makes sense. Especially since she comes bearing false prophecy. That bitch, I mean whore. She has the power to take form of a human, read minds, all that jazz.
Leah was likely killed months ago. The demons in the town are under her control. What about the Enochian exorcism? Good thing you've got the angel to translate! "It actually means you breed with the mouth of a goat." Castiel laughs, Sam and Dean give him blank stares. "It's funnier in Enochian." So the demons smoking is a con, just so innocent blood can be spilled in God's name. I'm taking that's a bit FU to the man upstairs. Who's not upstairs.
Her goal is to condemn as many souls to Hell as possible. "She's well on her way to dragging this whole town into the pit," Castiel says. I liked it better when he was telling Enochian jokes. Dean suddenly shows some fighting spirit. "Okay, so how do we go all "˜Pimp of Babylon' all over this bitch?" Leave it up to Dean to always find the right thing to say. Castiel and Sam look at each other. I don't think they got that far.
Whore, I mean Leah, is in the preacher's office listening to Jane break down in tears while Michael Shanks sits next to her. She's worried that she made it worse, she made the angels angry. Leah assures he she didn't and even Pastor Gideon, who's listening nearby, knows something is really off. She assures Jane that Paul was a sinner, would have taken them all down and she saved them. Jane is buying all this crap, but Pastor Gideon can't hold back anymore. He asks how that can be okay. Murder is a pretty big sin. He tries to argue further and Leah pulls the faith crap. Oh, you are so going down bitch.
Castiel puts a stick on top of the Whore of Babylon book. The whore can be killed with that. It's a stake made from a Cypress tree in Babylon. Dean's ready to kill her and Sam takes to stick to look at its impressiveness. Ah, that young Samuel is always the curious one. Killing her won't be that easy, Cas reveals. "The Whore can only be killed to a true servant of Heaven." "Servant like?" Dean asks. "Not you, or me. Sam of course is an abomination." Cue bitchface. Ha! Comedic timing is always so good on this show. They'll have to find someone else. So naturally, next shot is on Pastor Gideon.
The flock is gathering again and now Leah is REALLY evil. The Pastor looks at her with disturbance. Leah goes on about the big plan at midnight. They knew the day would come and it's there, the final judgment. Lots of people are smiling. They need to do this right. The angels say they aren't ready and a few elements need to be taken care of. Sinners. Now some people don't understand, like Jane. You're the biggest of them all babe! Pastor Gideon tries to calm everyone down and says in a low voice she's scaring everyone. She goes on with names but when the Pastor tries to stop her, she warns to let her go or the next sinner she names is him. I'd call that a big fat warning sign.
