This episode was slightly better, but I still finished the (approximate) hour off feeling cheated. One thing I forgot to mention from the season premiere is that when Cas comes back from the dead he laid his hands on the boys and left them with runes engraved on their ribs. The runes hide them from angels and you will see why I mention this shortly.
I really don't know how the writers could justify this episode as the season premiere. I waited all summer for this? I hope it gets better because I really enjoy(ed) the escapades of Sam and Dean. I cannot even waste my time writing my usual in-depth analysis, so the bare bones version it is.
We left the boys with a dead Ruby and with Lucifer rising.
I am a little behind in recapping (ok, a lot), so I am going to give just the basics...well, as much as I am actually capable of doing that. I was really dreading watching this episode. All the hype told me that there was going to be a third Winchester brother introduced; apparently John let one slip though in the years of hard hunting that followed his wife's death.
I am a little slow with the posting of the recaps sometimes, but this time I am on the job! I had high expectations for this episode and I was NOT disappointed! The premise: Sam and Dean find out that there is an author out there who is writing their lives into detailed comic books!
