Recap: Supernatural – Episode 7.21, Reading is Fundamental

Later, a healed Cas is standing next to Anias.

Anias: These are strange times.

Cas: I think they’ve always been.

Anias wants Cas to come with them, but Cas declines. He doesn’t belong there,he says. Kevin finishes translating the tablet and Dean checks on him.

Dean: You doing all right, Chosen One?

He says he is and Anias tells the henchmen angels to take Kevin back to his house; they can watch him there. I know he was being nice and all, but did anyone else think that was a Really Bad Idea before it was proven to be a Really Bad Idea?

Dean tells Cas and Sam that he couldn’t find Meg. Cas says that Meg likes to lay low. I’m not sure what I think about her being part of the tribe. Trusting demons – no matter their cause – has never worked out. They’ve double crossed the boys Every. Single. Time. Why should this be different? And Dean was always so adamant about his demon hate – it was a constant for him. And he’s acquiescing to her arguments and logic a bit more than I’d like…it makes me nervous.

But at the same time, there’s something about her and Cas…I’m not sure what, but…something. Something with the potential for tragedy and possibly good storytelling. Plus, once I got used to her way of talking and could understand her better, I didn’t hate her quite as much. Bottom line, the jury’s still out for me on Meg being included.

Sam is reading Kevin’s translation of the tablet and finds what they’re looking for: “Leviathan cannot be slain but by the bone of a righteous mortal washed in the [something] of the fallen.”

They realize they have to start with the blood of a fallen angel…which Cas just so happens to have readily available in a vial he hands to Dean.

Cas (grinning): You know me. Always happy to bleed for the Winchesters.

Dean takes it and looks…conflicted. And grateful.

Dean: What are you gonna do, Cas?

Cas: I don’t know. Isn’t that amazing?

And whoosh, he’s gone.

Dean pauses for a moment, then looks down at Sam saying, let’s get to work. Okay, I know you know what I’m going to say next…I sooooo want the “righteous mortal” to be Dean. He was called out as the righteous man, right? And he’s never gotten over breaking in Hell. The only thing I have to wonder, though, is all that talk about how Sam doesn’t feel bad about what he did anymore – how he left it behind. If he’s released his guilt, would he be considered more righteous than Dean? Or will it be either of them? Will they have to just get some…random priest or something? *more pondering*

ANYWAY, back at Kevin’s oh-so-safe house, his mother is wigging out and is being semi-comforted by the most wooden cop in the history of ever. That should have been the dead give-away right there. Just then, Kevin shows up in the middle of the room, flanked by two angels. He hugs his mom, saying he’s okay, and is holding the tablet. But…the cop is a Levi.

He walks over to the angels, shoves his hand through this chests saying, “Rick beats scissors, Leviathan beats angel.” They die with black goo oozing out of their mouths and eyes and just…uck. Now, did I miss something? Have we seen Levi’s kill angels before, like back in the first episodes of the season? I was thinking that only angels could kill other angels, but then Meg killed Hester with the sword, so…maybe I’m just wrong. Which is okay. I can be wrong.

Anyway, the cop morphs back into Edgar.

So now the Levi’s have the prophet and the tablet. Even though the boys have the translation, that can’t be good. And for some reason, all I can think about is the Harry Potter prophecy, “Neither can live while the other survives.” Eeep!

The previews just threw a lot of OMG-type images my way…I’m looking forward to seeing how they wrap this up. Will we get Levi closure? Will Dick get taken out? If so, who will do the honors? Will Bobby finish his unfinished business? Will he go vengeful? Will the boys have to end him as well? Will Cas be back to be part of the fray? Will Dean forgive him? Can Dean’s heart be healed as surely as Sam’s head was healed?

And most importantly – WILL WE SEE THE IMPALA?!?!

Tune in next week, when you’ll hear Gaelic say…. Well, you’ll have to tune in next week to find out. *grins*

Slainte!
