Crackle, Crackle THE ROAD SO FAR! Again! Some more! Eh, it was better last week, so let's keep this brief, shall we? As The Kripkeeper recycles "Carry On My Wayward Son" from last season's "Salvation," we're reminded of a few things relevant to this evening's episode: The Fucking Colt That Can Kill Anything Except When It Can't; the fact that The Ceiling Demon is now in possession of said Fucking Colt; the existence of Crossroads Demons, who barter certain gifts in exchange for the eternal souls of those foolish enough to trade with them; the terms of last week's Demonic Miss America Pageant; and The Death Of The Sammy at G.I.
