Dean soon addresses Metatron who assures him that God never actually cared about humans and discarded them. He says that he worries about humanity, and would be a righteous God. Dean brings out the First Blade, and condemns Metatron for Kevin’s death, the robbery of Castiel’s grace, and every additional bad thing to have befallen to them. Metatron aggravates him further. He knows that he cannot be hurt, and Castiel and Gadreel have been securely locked away. Dean strikes Metatron, but the latter’s link to the Angel Tablet demonstrates to be stronger then he thought. This reminds me of my friend’s pressure cleaner experience, that left his house’s exterior looking worse then when he started cleaning it. Continue reading

Dean arrives at Bobby’s place. It’s in shambles. He finds Bobby’s wheelchair tilted over with bloody bullet holes in it. He moves to the secret hiding place of Bobby’s account and finds a picture of some men with shotguns, Bobby and Cas are among them, posing beside the welcome sign to Camp Chitaqua. He travels to the camp under cover of darkness and alludes the guards at the gate. He recognizes his dumped out Baby among the vehicles brought by towing a car into the compound and swoops in to inspect the damage to her. While he does, a figure advances from behind and hits him unconscious with one blow. Continue reading
Dean later wakes up in a trashed-out hotel room, confused. He looks out the shattered window and sees that Kansas City has been put to waste. There are no other people around. He leaves the hotel on foot to investigate the rest of the city, finding no one until he comes across a little girl cringing in an alley. He addresses her slowly, questioning if she’s lost or hurt, but she quickly growls and jumps at him waving a chard of glass. Dean reflexively swings and knocks her unconscious. He then turns aorund and sees the word “Croatoan” drawn in red on a brick wall. Dread comes over his face , when a tiny army of Croatoan-infected people come around the curve and begin to pursue him through the destroyed city. He finally runs into a dead end, with little hope of climbing the barbed wire fence in time. Just before they stumble upon him, a heavily armed military unit arrives and opens fire, barely missing Dean, but giving him time to escape into an alley.
Night falls, and he emerges from his hiding place and breaks through a fence. He looks back to view the No Entry sign on the fence designating Kansas City as a Croatoan Virus Hot Zone. It was dated August 1st, 2014. He is confused. He hotwires a deserted car and speeds off. As he tries to find a cell signal or even a radio station, Zachariah teleports into the car, much to Dean’s dismay. “I thought I smelled you stink on this Back To the Future crap,” Dean grumbles. Zachariah has appeared with a newspaper and nonchalantly begins reading the horrible headlines loudly: Croatoan Pandemic Reaches Australia; President Palin Supports the Bombing of Houston; there are no more sports because what’s left of Parliament has revoked the right of Public Assembly. Dean wants to know how he found him (he has an Enochian sigil etched into his ribcage). Zachariah mockingly deplores that they’ve had to resort to the unorthodox manner of using of human informants; the angels have made “inspirational visits,” concluded with Dean’s image, to some parts of the “fringier Christian groups.” Dean then recalls the sidewalk missionary that approached him as he started to walk into the hotel. Dean demands that he hurl him back to 2009, but Zachariah replies he wants him to remain in the future for at least three days, because needs to see the state the world will be in if he proceeds to refuse to be Michael’s vessel. Zachariah vanishes.
The episode starts as Dean parks his car in front of a hotel in Kansas City, as a sidewalk preacher attempts to communicate with passersby. As Dean enters the hotel, the man approaches him and questions him if he’s considered that “God’s plan” for him. “Too freakin’ much, pal.”, he responds and pushes past him. Inside his room, he talks with Castiel on the phone about how the demons holding the Colt which makes no sense; they should have melted it down by now. But, Castiel is sure that it is about, and that getting ahold of it is the only way they can destroy Lucifer, if they are still intent upon the insane task of trying to do so. Castiel asks for Dean’s location and then says his on way to meet immediately, but Dean states he requires at least 4 hours of sleep and the ability to eat, as he’s just driven for 16 hours straight and needs the rest. Cas, standing on a roadside, yields and says he’ll wait till morning.
Later that night, Dean’s phone hums and he decided to pick up assuming it to be an eager Castiel. Instead, it’s a panicked Sam. He tells him that Lucifer had approached him and announced that his the vessel his waiting for all these years. Sam wants to recommence hunting with Dean so that they can track Lucifer together. Still, Dean is unhappily settled with the fact that they make better hunters individually than they do when working together. Especially now that it’s unveiled that they are “the Fire and the Oil of the Armageddon,” the chosen but resistant vessels of Heaven and Hell, they should probably pick different hemispheres to exist in. He reminds Sam that the players in power will always use their devotion to each other against them in a position to reach their own ends. Sam begs him to reconsider, insisting they can defeat them. But, Dean tearfully regrets saying no and hangs up on him.
