Here, we scuttle forward a bit further in time to watch as Super-Awesome Soulless Sammy knocks the snot out of a hapless Rhode Island deputy sheriff, stands idly by while Dean gets vamped, and readies a dagger to eviscerate Bobby. Soulless Sammy kicked ass.
"Sometimes, we're lucky enough to be given a warning," Current Castiel's Voiceover observes as we scoot back again to the last scene of last season's finale. Flashback Zombie Sam glares in the general direction of Flashback Bendy Lisa's for a while until he finally spins around and stalks off into the night, and as My Flashback Baboo watches him go, Current Castiel's Voiceover sighs, "This should have been mine."
With that, we're back in Crowley's makeshift operating theater. The demon yanks that needle out of Dead Mommy's brain, just because, and he urges My Sweet Baboo to "just kill the Winchesters." Castiel, of course, refuses to do so, and they start bickering with each other again until Castiel finally exasperates, "Don't worry about them!" "'Don't worry about them'?" Crowley repeats, incredulously. "What, like Lucifer didn't worry? Or Michael? Or Lilith, or Alastair, or Azazel didn't worry?" By now, Crowley's practically howling with rage, and he wonders, both loudly and rhetorically, "Am I the only game piece on the board who doesn't underestimate those denim-wrapped nightmares?!" "Just find Purgatory," Castiel seethes by way of reply. "If you don't," he warns, "we will both die again and again until the end of time." Whatever the hell that's supposed to mean.
Deep within the lush coastal rainforests of southeastern South Dakota, Bobby's ensnared a demonically enhanced fellow hunter named "Red" in the Emporium study, and we enter the scene to find him interrogating his temporary houseguest with Darling Sammy at his side. Because this is apparently Castiel's night to bore me to death, however, I'll be keeping this brief. Long story short, Crowley's apparently taken to having his minions possess actual hunters, the better to continue receiving fresh supplies of Mother's various spawn. Red, however, refuses to divulge his boss's current coordinates, so Bobby jams The Knife That Can Kill Anything Except When It Usually Can't into the demonically enhanced hunter's leg and retires to the kitchen for a confab with Sam and the just-arriving Dean. The topic of conversation is, of course, My Sweet Baboo and his LYING ways, and we learn that Dean's earlier story about Sam tracking down a frigging genie was merely a fabrication to keep Castiel from discovering that they are, in fact, tracking down Castiel's new demonic friend. How unfortunate for them, then, that My Sweet Baboo's cloaked himself to flutter in entirely unnoticed and eavesdrop. D'OH! "He's our friend," Dean reminds Bobby and Sam. "So he burned the wrong bones!" Dean continues, making excuses for his otherworldly paramour. "So Crowley tricked him!" "He's an angel!" Bobby hisses, not buying it. "He is the Balki Bartokomus of Heaven!" Dean cries. "He can make a mistake!" The three natter on in this manner for a very long while until Bobby finally blurts that they could be dealing with "a Superman who's gone dark side." "Which means," he heatedly adds, "we've got to be cautious, we've got to be smart, and maybe stock up on some Kryptonite!"
