Last night was the fourth episode of Supernatural, entitled The End. Jensen Ackles as Dean must have had a tough time filming this episode since he was pulling double duty, being all twin-face. (There were two Dean’s in the episode.) There wasn’t much Sam in this episode, but when we did see Sam? Yea, he was freaky (or freak-kay!). After all, he was the devil!

In this episode, 2009 Dean gets sent to the future, and his future self isn’t really a ball of fun. I’ll tell you who was a big ball o’ fun – Castiel! Of course, that tends to happen when you’re no longer an angel, start doing drugs, and are having orgies! Ah! But man, he WAS relaxed, and it was fun to see Misha Collins stretch his acting legs since I’ve read his Misha Collins Twitter feed enough to know that he has a very witty personality. As Castiel, Collins doesn’t normally get to be footloose and fancy free.

The one surprise I had was that Dean had come to the conclusion that the brothers were stronger apart. Didn’t the events of the Supernatural season finale Lucifer Rising show him that they needed each other? I understand the whole ‘you’re a liability, they’ll use you against me’ thing, but it seems like less of a sticking point than Sam and Dean being the only people who can really help each other. The impression I got from a lot of fans was that this season would definitely show the brother’s working together as a strong and powerful unit because they’d learned that lesson. I guess it took a trip to the future for the lesson to really stick? What do you think?

Will Dean ever say ‘yes’ to Michael and be his vessel, or did Zachiarah only make Dean feel more confident in his decision?

The ‘Huh Moment’ of the episode: The Devil speaking through Sam, explaining why he was kicked down to hell. Is it possible we might feel some actual sympathy for the devil?

The ‘Snort Moment’ of the episode: Hearing that the future news said that Sarah Palin was president. President Palin? PLEASE DO NOT HAPPEN EVER! The headline was “President Palin defends bombing of Houston“. Oh, man.

The ‘Fun Fact’ of the episode: The End was filmed on The Watchmen set. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was in that movie, and he was also on Supernatural as John Winchester. According to The CW, “These sets are right next to each other so the boys and their “dad” had a nice reunion when Watchman was filming.: Voila!
