Whatever happens in Purgatory–stays in Purgatory.
Supernatural, (Season 8 ep 2) we are two episodes deep in the new season and looks as if things are starting to heat up. Castiel (Misha Collins) was in tonight’s episode! Although he wasn’t front and center in the action as I would have liked–but we learned that he fled in order to protect Dean. That’s all well and fine–if only he can help out with this tablet situation. What happened in Purgatory? Dean’s flashbacks revealed a bit more of what happened, but his methods for extracting information have taken a colder turn. The hardening of his morality will come into conflict with Sam, and if and when Castiel appears on Earth again looks as if he will have to regain the trust of the group.
Mrs. Tran (Lauren Tom), Kevin’s (Osric Chau) Mom was a great edition to the episode. Looks like she is a match in wits–Dean’s type of personality. However, the show doesn’t have a very good track record when it comes to female lead characters, so I’m not holding out hope that she will make it through to the end of the season.
Tonight’s episode featured an auction hosted by the God of Greed, Plutus, where the Word of God tablet was stored to be sold to the highest bidder. Just when the Winchesters thought they were one step closer to sealing the fiery gates, Crowley (Mark Sheppard) demon tricks to steal it from them. He advises Kevin to distance himself from Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) due to the high body count they leave behind. Looks like Kevin took Crowley’s advice because Dean and Sam must try and locate him, again–before both he and his mother find themselves in deeper trouble.
Curious though–Crowley gave a hint as to the dark nature of Kevin’s real father’s identity. Could it be that Kevin’s father may be a demon? Or a fallen angel? I’m willing to guess that his parentage may have something to do with his prophet status, and potentially be a significant slow-burning conflict as we delve into the season. Benny (Ty Olsson) eventually has to be explained, and perhaps his true motive for helping Dean out of Purgatory will be revealed.
Just a hunch–he could be working with Crowley or Kevin’s real father, or maybe strictly for his own personal gain. He seemed insistent on creating a rift between Dean and Castiel in Purgatory, and that to me wasn’t a very good indicator of being the “good guy.” While season eight still simmers, it is off to a pretty good start. A little slow on the exciting end of things. I have to be content that this is only the second episode of an interesting season.
