5 episodes to go! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG!
We're getting scary close to the end of the season and after last week's little reveal of Sam colluding with Rowena to decode the Book of the Damned, it all seems absolutely terrifying!
So what gut ache inducing things are we in store for us this week?
Charlie found the Book of the Damned
The Book of the Damned was gross and evil
Dean told Sam to destroy it because it wanted him to do bad, bad things
Sam did a two-card Monte and switched books
Cas got his grace back and met Charlie which was adorbz
Metatron absconded with the demon tablet
Everyone ate pizza
Sam made a deal with the Devil's mum
Yes, Sam pulled a swifty with the book. No-one knows but Rowena, because he went to her for help with the spell to cure Dean! Eeeep!
Dean is completely in the dark as to all the manoeuvring Sam's been doing over the last couple of weeks...but I have a feeling that won't last!
Let's check out the synopsis for this week's "The Werther Project"!
THE WERTHER PROJECT
Sam learns that former Men of Letters, Magnus, once built a magical box and Sam sets out to find it in the hopes it can cure Dean of the Mark of Cain. However, what he’s not prepared for is the deadly alarm system Magnus set up on the box. When Sam opens the box, he puts both his and Dean’s life in danger. Stefan Pleszczynski directed this episode written by Robert Berens.
This is Stefan Pleszczynski second Supernatural episode, his first one being "Alex Annie Alexis Ann". Bob Berens' last episode was the totally wonderful, "The Executioner's Song".
I'm so excited to revisit Magnus! Well, you know, not him, because Dean chopped his head off! But the legacy of him. Magnus was known in the Men of Letters as the keeper of spells. So he knew a hell of a lot of magic, we even saw him casting an incantation or two...which totally ties him in with the dodgy path Sam has stepped on to.
So what is this magical box that Magnus had, and what does it do? Pretty sure it does something that creates this!
BENNY! Even if he's not really real...which it looks like he's probably not by how it all plays out in the promo below... it's so cool to see him! I hope Dean and him can have a bit of closure. Even if he's not real!
That box sure does something tricky to ward off all comers!
Here's the promo
It's hard to tell in this choppy edit at the end, if Dean sees Sam with Rowena. I don't think so though. It doesn't look like it. Maybe Sam disappears when they open the box or try to crack open the box? It's alarm system looks like maybe it throws them somewhere else. Sam doesn't look well that's for sure. Is Rowena doing something to him, or is the box or the box alarm?
And who the hell is the little girl and the woman?
Eeeee! It's exciting!
Let's look at the Sneak Peek!
Rowena looks like me trying to find my phone in the morning after I've fallen asleep tweeting!
Sam wants to control the situation, wants to keep the upper hand. I don't think that will last. Whatever happens, Rowena ends up by his side at the box...so I think his plan doesn't go to plan!
This week, we have another preview from The Carver! I love these!
Even if Sam isn't telling Dean, Dean is certainly getting suspicious. He looks helluva suspicious in this clip. And Sam looks helluva guilty!
I hope that when Dean finally finds out/works out what's going on, he's not too pissed with Sam. I hope he remembers having been there and done that and is understanding! I HOPE!
So I'm pretty sure we're at the point of the season where all the bad stuff starts happening, or all the really. really, ridiculously bad stuff! Like really bad! And it feels totally mysterious, because we haven't been fighting one foe so we're not really sure where we're going. But we've got The Mark of Cain to deal with, Rowena, Metatron and the demon tablet - or that could be something we take into next season. What will be Crowley's role? What will be Cas' role? Will the Mark be cured (my bet is yep) and what will be the cost? To Sam, to Dean, to Sam and Dean, to anyone else! TO US?
I'm so looking forward to this episode. Bob Berens writes good stuff. There's Benny and Purgatory and the ramping up of the Sam dabbling with witchcraft thing, which we've all been predicting. I think it's going to be good! I think the end of this season is going to rock! And possibly break us...again!
