Dean's a little smarter than that, knowing they have nothing. Sam's look downward glance confirms that. Sam's not giving up though. "You know I have to stop you." Dean starts feeling a little confident, challenging Sam to try. "Just remember, you're not all hopped up on demon blood this time." That's an obvious reference to when Sam kicked his ass in "When The Levee Breaks." Sam knows. "But I brought help." Dean hears wings flapping behind him and turns just in time to see one livid Castiel press the those fingers of angel zapping to his forehead. Everything goes white.
Next scene is at Bobby's and everyone is there! All four of them in a room together. Has that happened in recent memory? Um, ever? Bobby and Sam are at the desk pouring through books, Castiel is standing against the door jam looking angry with arms folded and Dean is pacing around obviously in a difficult mood. "No, this is good really. Eight months of turning pages and screwing pooches but tonight, tonight's when the magic happens." Bobby doesn't appreciate the lack of help so Dean tells him to let him get out of his hair. Bobby asks what happened to him. A total breakdown in faith, why do you ask? Dean blames it on reality. That works too.
Dean is now pitching that Michael can ice the devil and save a boat load of people. Bobby reminds him not all of them and they've got to think of something else. Sam listens to this brooding. Castiel listens to this brooding. Dean is now thinking if Lucifer burns the earth down and he could have done something about it, that's on him. "You can't give up son," Bobby says. Dean scoffs. "You're not my father. And you ain't in my shoes." I could shout out to Dean "You major dick!" right now but I don't need to. Sam's expression says it all for us. He then shakes his head at Dean to remind him that mean people suck.
You think Bobby is going to let this go? Hell no. Bobby pulls out his gun from the desk drawer and puts it on the desk. Dean and Sam both watch with curiosity. Then he pulls out a silver bullet from his shirt pocket. Dean asks "What is that?" Okay, you asked. "That's the round I mean to put in my skull. (puts it down on desk.) Every morning I look at it I think 'maybe today is the day I turn the lights out.' But I don't do it. I never do it. You know why? BECAUSE I PROMISED YOU I WOULDN'T GIVE UP!" Dean listens with the shame he should. Everyone pauses in awkward silence but it only lasts a second or two, but now Castiel gets his plot time.
Cas grabs his head in pain. Sam asks if he's okay. Remember Cas telling you not to ask stupid questions last week? The answer is obvious, no. "Something's happening." Dean asks where but there's a sound of flapping wings and papers go flying. Cas isn't sticking around to explain. The others share worried glances and then Castiel is examining carnage in a forest. Tree carnage anyway, for a similar phenomenon that happened in "Lazarus Rising" is happening here. Trees are down and there's an explosion center at ground zero. He comes to the center and something is slowly popping out of the ground. Cas goes to examine, but his spidy sense kicks in just in time to thwart an attack from another angel.
If there's improvement in Castiel at all this season, this angel has been kicking all kinds of butt compared to last year where he lost just about every fight he was in. Even with a sneak attack, Castiel still manages to wrestle away an angel-killing sword from the guy (he had two!) and exchange a lot of swipes when another angel comes up from behind. Castiel swerves left and the other angel plunges his sword into the first angel. He goes zap. This of course gives Cas his chance to overpower the other angel, knock him to the ground and plunge the angel-killing sword right through his heart. Cas BTW does this with such scary malice. Don't mess with this angel on the edge! Now that the minor annoyances are gone Cas goes back to that hole in the ground. A filthy hand pops out so Cas pulls out the body with it with one fell swoop. Those powerful angels. He plonks the body on the ground. Interesting.
Back at Bobby's house and Sam is reading a book in front of the refrigerator. Dean comes over, but Sam won't budge. Dean wants a beer. They exchange glares of annoyance, but Sam does move. No chance for that beer though, for Castiel arrives with the body he just pulled out of the ground. He practically drops the person on Bobby's bed. I love the POV from the bed just so we can see Sam and Dean's stunned faces. Bobby pulls up to the bed and asks who it is. "That's our brother," Sam answers, both he and Dean trying to prevent their jaws from falling to the floor. Now we see a dirty Adam on the bed. Cool! It's another Dead Winchester family reunion! We've been getting so many of those lately.
Adam remains unconscious on the bed while all of Team Freewill stares at him. He's going to feel awkward when he wakes up. It all clicks for Bobby. "What a minute, your brother, Adam?" Yeah, I do believe they only have one brother. That they know of. Dean asks Cas "What the Hell?" and while Cas puts down two clean angel swords on the desk (he washed them off in between?) he gives the answer. Angels. Sam is shocked by that. Why? Because they're evil! No, Cas doesn't answer and instead does the rib carving with his touch trick on Adam. They need to hide him, now. Good thinking!
Of course Cas' touch is jarring enough where Adam wakes. He shoots up and in understandably freaked out over being in this room of strangers. Sam assures him he's save. Naturally, Adam wants to know who the Hell he is. Don't you see the family resemblance? "You're going to find this a littleâ€¦a lot crazy, but we're actually your brothers," Dean says. Sam tries to back Dean up, explaining John Winchester was their father too, just in case Adam was confused that over the half siblings his mother had and hid from him. He says he's Sam and - "Yeah, I'm sure that's Dean." Everyone's a little surprised Adam knows that. He was warned about them. From the angels of course. "Where the Hell is Zachariah?" Adam asks. Honest kid, you don't want to know.
Off screen Adam is given a chance to clean up and is given one of Dean's outfits. He certainly isn't Sam's size. Then he's back on the bed and is getting stared down by the other four interrogation style. Dean asks for the story from the beginning. I should note before going further they get the continuity from "Jump The Shark" dead on right, down to the horrible ghoulish detail. They know us fans are keeping tabs. "Well, I was dead, in Heaven. Except it kind of looked like my prom. Uh, I was making out with this girl, her name was Kristin McGee." Dean says it sounds like Heaven and did he get to third base? Sam clears his throat and gives Dean a variation of the Sam Winchester bitchface, this one a little more subdued but still agitated.
