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

Sam stabs HellSam and braces himself for the white light to hit him. When it does, Sam in the Panic Room does this weird…hip thrust maneuver as he writhes on the cot. Alone. Next to a gun. I was worried for a moment.

Back in Autopsy 101 – which is apparently somewhere in Kansas – Cas is holding the blood jar. Balty shows up, answering his call. Cas tells him they have a problem – Dean Winchester is on his way there. Something in me grins whenever they refer to Dean as a “problem.” Balty tries to play the I had no idea card, but he lies even worse than Cas.

Cas says they have a Judas in their midst and Balty, trying for the snark he’s been known for, guesses it’s Cupid. Cas stands with a look of sad realization as the fact that his friend is lying to him – and was the one to betray him – sinks in. Balty asks what he wants him to do with Dean and Cas says he’ll handle him. He turns away, worrying Balty with his strange, calm behavior.

Cas: First Sam and Dean and now this? I’m doing my best in impossible circumstances. My friends…they abandon me. Plot against me. It’s…difficult to understand.

Yeah, I’d imagine it would be. Because no one is being clear with each other – no one. No one is saying, this is why I’m doing this they’re just saying trust me because I know I’m right. It’s so frustrating the way they’ve written this. It’s very dramatic, yes, but sometimes drama is just…well, too dramatic. *smiles*

Balty tells Cas that he’ll always have “little ol’ me.” But by that time, Cas has already made his decision. He’s blinks behind Balty and stabs him with an angle sword whispering, “I’ll always have you,” in Balty’s ear as the irreverent angel dies.

I’m going to miss that guy. I really am.

We move from Balty and Cas’ tragic last embrace to see the Impala rumble up to a stop a ways away from the building. The hunters get out and Bobby is looking through binoculars, telling Dean that he sees a dozen angels, maybe more.

Dean: How the hell are we gonna take out that many angels?

Bobby: We don’t. We’ll ninja our way in.

Dean: Awesome. Until they hear your knee squeak.

Bobby: Shut up.

Dean: What, now you have thin skin?

Bobby: No, shut up!

Hee – I liked that little normal exchange. It helped remind me that these were two guys who are really familiar with each other, have been fighting together a long time and it felt, well, real.
