Supernatural 10×02 ‘Reichenbach’ : “That’s exactly what a psycho-liar would say.”

Soooo…I noticed that Supernatural’s intro finishes with the logo including a pentagram, which suggests witchcraft and the occult.   This episode included angels as well as demons, but the story line seemed more dark and in depth than all of last season.  I think we’re going to delve into The Mark of Cain this season and all its meanings as well as get into the characters deeper than we did last season.

In this episode, I felt like three things were happening : angel story line, cole story line, and demon/Dean story line.  We see Crowley, no surprise, and he’s trying to increase the demon numbers for hell.  Why?  I don’t know.  It’s an ongoing struggle, I guess.  He and Dean have a little fight and Crowley bails.  I wonder where this is going.  Is Dean integral to Crowley’s version of hell?  Why does Crowley need Dean other than, they appear to be besties?

Castiel is having issues, because lack of grace equals dying.  So I guess that’s a thing that’s happening.  But then we have Hannah.  I wasn’t into her at all last season.  It appears she’s going to be an important part of this season.  She’s having a similar experience to Castiel’s early days on Earth, which I think is interesting.  It appears her compassion and understanding of humans is growing as well as her loyalty to Cas.  Going so far as to attempting a bargain with Metatron makes me think she’s going to be around for a while and have some character development…mistakes, growth, etc.  As for Metatron, I guess we’re still dealing with him.  I wonder what his straight jacket is made of.

Cole appeared to have a moment in this episode.  He had the whole torture scene with Sam and then the fight with Dean.  I’m not sure how he’s going to play into all this.  I think we’re going to have to learn more about why Dean killed his father.  Since Cole is going to start researching demons, I wonder if he’ll become a hunter.  Can he work with Sam?  I’m interested in seeing what his deal is…although, I’d have really loved it if Cole were a female character. Supernatural is still a big sausage fest, really.

Finally, there’s Sam and Dean.  Sam is staying a very stubborn Moose, just wanting to trap and fix Dean.  Dean, on the other hand, seems really complicated right now.  Because Crowley and Sam both thought they saw mercy in Dean’s actions, but then Dean explained that he was being super manipulative, I wonder where this is going.  Is this going to be the struggle between Good and Evil within Dean?  Will we have to learn even more about Dean to see what he’s going through or will this be a bunch of Christian Mythology?  Is Sam going to be the most shallow character this season with his one-track mind set on fixing Dean?

I really like this episode and felt like it gave us a lot to chew on.  I was finding myself really getting into it instead of feeling annoyed, like I felt for almost all of last season.  How are you feeling?  Are you into Dean and his demon side?  Are you hoping Metatron breaks out?  Do you think they’d ever kill off Cas?  Do you care about Crowley’s vision for hell?  Let me know in the comments!
