Vampires and Sheriff Jody Mills both make a return in this week’s episode, with both the creatures and the Sheriff re-affirming why they’re such strong aspects of the show in an entertaining episode.
Castiel and Bartholomew have a meeting while the Winchesters get a request from an old friend in an enjoyable return from hiatus for the show.
One of the most intriguing aspects of Metatron’s spell to cast the angels out of heaven was the loss of Castiel’s grace in the process. While the angel had, at that point, already spent a lot of time around humans, it was nonetheless bound to be a big adjustment for him to be human. This week once again picks up on the thread of Castiel trying to survive on his own, in a gripping episode that manages to reveal another layer to the angels while once again revisiting the power struggle between Crowley and Abaddon.
