Recap: Supernatural, Episode 6.22 – The Man Who Knew Too Much

Dean and Bobby gape in shock at Cas.

Cas looks over at them, his expression, his voice, everything a very scary-calm.

Cas: So you see, I saved you.

Dean approaches carefully, holding his arm very still, wincing a bit. He looks like there are a few things broken inside him. He talks to Cas as if he’s talking to someone holding a loaded weapon, or a bomb trigger. Slowly, gently, trying to talk him off a ledge.

Dean: You sure did, Cas. Thank you.

Cas: You doubted me. Fought against me. But I was right all along.

Dean: You were. We’re sorry. Now…let’s just diffuse you, okay?

Cas (looking at Dean): What do you mean?

Dean: You’re fulla nuke. It’s not safe. So, before the eclipse ends, let’s get the souls back to where they belong.

Cas (with that scary calm still in place): Oh, they belong with me.

Oh, Cas. Where did you go? They didn’t kill him, but they may as well have. Our “Balki Bartakomous” of Heaven is gone. And it just…it’s sad. I know, I know…continue the story, change it up, make it so that the side players stay side players and it focuses on Sam and Dean. But the hell the writers put these boys through – making someone a part of their lives (and ours), making the boys care for them, sacrifice for them and then…take them away.

It does make for good drama, but man, does it hurt. Especially because these characters are so real to me – to so many of us.

Dean: No, Cas. It’s scrambling your brain.

Cas: I’m not finished yet. Raphael had many followers and I must punish them all severely.

Gah – on a bit of a power trip there.

Dean (advancing slowly, painfully): Listen to me. I know there’s a lot of bad water under the bridge. But we were family once. I woulda died for you. Almost did a few times. So if that means anything to you, please… (his voice cracks) I’ve lost Lisa and Ben…Sam. Don’t make me lose you, too.
