Recap: Supernatural, Episode 6.20 – The Man Who Would Be King

Okay, so I need to pause here. When Soulless Sam recounted his return to Dean, he said he woke up in the empty Stull Cemetery field, that he called for Cas, but Cas didn’t answer. Now we find out that Sam was returned by Cas to that moment we saw in Swan Song. Also, Cas said he’d spent the year Sam was soulless as a…wait, what was it? A multi-dimensional celestial wave of intent.

Looks like everyone might’ve been covering tracks and telling stories during the soulless time.

Back with Crowely and Cas, Crowley is begging Cas to just kill the Winchesters already. Cas says no. So, Crowley says he’ll do it himself. Cas says he’ll just bring them back.

Crowley: No you won’t. Not where I’ll put them.

Oooh, interesting. Cas can storm Hell and retrieve both of them—one from Lucifer’s friggin’ cage—and yet there’s some place Crowley thinks he can send them that Cas won’t be able to follow? I need to know more about this.

Cas says that Crowley shouldn’t worry about them.

Crowley: Don’t WORRY about them? Like Lucifer didn’t worry? Or Michael? Or Lilith? Or Azaezal didn’t worry? Am I the only game piece on the board who DOESN’T underestimate those DENIM WRAPPED NIGHTMARES.

(At least that’s what it sounded like—he was screaming. It was hard to tell.)

Yeah, that’s right, Crowley. Our boys are BAD ASS. And every single creature and/or being who has underestimated them—together or separate—has met their end. And the boys are still kicking. Sure, they’ve died and been brought back. But they have never quit.

Cas: Just find Purgatory. If you don’t we will both die again and again until the end of time.

Huh? Okay, I definitely need to know more about that. The “need to know” edict about this Season is pervasive until the end. I mean, even after seeing the whole thing and knowing about the deal and the reason they’re looking and all of that…what’s with this ‘dying again and again’ business? It sounds ominous and also potentially like motive and I hope they go somewhere with that in the last two episodes.

Cas: The Winchesters won’t get to you.

Crowley: Let ‘em get to me. I’LL TEAR THEIR FRIGGIN’ HEARTS OUT.

See? It was his episode to yell.
