"Free to Be You and Me"
Tonight's Supernatural rocked. Dean, certain Castiel will die (again) in their coming encounter with the Archangel Raphael, taking him to a whorehouse to get him laid (not wanting the former/quasi-Angel to die a virgin), was probably the highlight.
But we learned from Raphael that God has been gone for the entire 20th Century (off on some kind of vision quest or just deus absconditas). How else to explain the century's horrors, the archangel wants to know.
And at episode's end, Lucifer makes his first appearance--to Sam, informing him that the younger Winchester boy is his real vessel on Earth. Why the one he's in now, the Mark Pelligrino model, is in danger of spontaneously combusting: he needs the Padalecki meat suit.
This season is going to be a helluva ride.
