Supernatural: The Rapture

Rapture.jpgDean's dreaming of fishing? At the lake from "Dead in the Water"?Seems out of character. Ah, Castiel is involved. And he's afraid someone is listening to Dean's dreams. He has something important to tell Dean, but it has to be where no one is listening. Interesting part to the mythology - they - demons? angels? - can listen to your dreams, but not your awake life.

They go to what looks like a disaster area. On the wall, there's a symbol painted, similar to the spell Anna used to send Castiel and Uriel away when they fought. They find Castiel, unconscious. Except it's not Cas, it's Jimmy Novak. Jimmy was Castiel's human host.

Hungry Jimmy

Angels don't eat, but Jimmy does. A lot, to make up for last time. He doesn't remember anything about what Cas did while he was possessed, and he doesn't remember what Cas was going to tell Dean. But he does remember having a family.

Sam and Dean argue over whether to send Jimmy home to his family. Sam wins. He convinces Dean that Jimmy and his family will be endangered if Jimmy goes home. Surely the demons will want to question Jimmy, just as the Winchesters do. Obviously, Jimmy isn't happy.

Sneaking a drink

Sam is on watch while Dean and Jimmy sleep. When he's sure they're asleep, Sam sneaks out. Oh, yuck, he's drinking bottled demon blood.

Unfortunately, he also isn't watching as Jimmy sneaks off to the bus station.

Dean is actually amused that Sam slipped up, and is in no hurry to chase down Jimmy. Sam claims he was getting a Coke at the time.

"Was it a refreshing Coke?" Dean asks.

On the bus, Jimmy remembers Castiel testing his faith by asking him to put his arm into a pot of boiling water. He removed it, unscathed, when his wife witnessed him doing it. He tried to explain, but she, rationally, thought he was nuts, and wanted to know who Castiel is.

Anna, looking good

Anna pops in for a chat while the brothers are driving to intercept Jimmy. Dean almost crashes, but recovers quickly, and notices that Anna is looking good.

"Yeah, Dean, not the most appropriate time," she says. Sam looks... different... to her, but she doesn't specify how. But there are more important things to discuss. She is upset that Jimmy escaped. Castiel was summoned back to Heaven, which is a painful, and very bad, event, because it means Castiel was summoned on the big carpet in the sky. She thinks Cas must have had vital info to get called back to Heaven. In fact, she's afraid Jimmy is dead already.

Jimmy's homecoming

Jimmy arrives at his house. For a moment, he stands outside remembering an argument with his wife.

She wanted him to take medicine, presumably to deal with his "delusions." He refused, explaining that Castiel had important work for him.

"You sell ad time for AM radio," she said. I thought he was an accountant?

"He says I'm special. It's in my blood," Jimmy replied.

"What does that mean, 'it's in your blood'?" she asked. Hmm, calling attention to this statement. What does it mean?

"I don't know," he admitted. "It's God's will, not really my place to question it."

Jimmy's wife was afraid. She threatened to go to her mother's, and take their daughter with her if Jimmy wouldn't get help.

Jimmy asked for guidance from Castiel. He would do what Cas asked, if Cas would promise that his family will be okay. Cas agreed, then possessed him.

Jimmy's daughter interrupted. But Cas said, "I am not your father." He walked off.

He's done remembering. Inside, he can see his wife and daughter. He rings the bell. His wife sees him through the door. She's upset. They thought he was dead.

Inside, his wife, Amelia, doesn't know what to do. It's been almost a year. Jimmy says he was in a psych clinic. Amelia is upset that he didn't write, he didn't call. Jimmy throws himself on her mercy, and says that he's better now. Amelia isn't sure he can come home. He asks to stay for dinner, and she agrees.

Demonic Roger

Cut to Sam on the phone, trying to reach Ruby. He's out of blood, and he needs it.

Jimmy sits to eat dinner with his family. He reaches for the food, and his daughter stops him. Isn't he going to say grace?

"No, honey, I don't think I am," he says, tears in his eyes.

The doorbell rings. It's the neighbor, Roger. Did he just see Jimmy? Amelia tells him it's not a good time, but Jimmy interrupts. Roger wants to know what happened to him, but Jimmy brushes him of, saying it's a long story. Roger wants to talk to him, alone. Amelia gets Roger a beer.

"So what happened, really?" he asks.

"Honestly, worst year of my life, you wouldn't believe a word of it, but it's all okay now, I swear," Jimmy says.

"No, it's not," Roger says.

"What do you mean?"

"Well, I mean I'm going to gut your daughter while you watch." Roger's eyes roll to black. Amelia brings Roger the beer, and in the distraction, Jimmy grabs something and starts beating Roger in the head.

Amelia screams, Jimmy yells that Roger is a demon and for her to run.

Not Jimmy, Roger!

Amelia, however, waits until the commercial break ends before grabbing their daughter and running to the laundry room. Except she's running away from Jimmy, not Roger. Jimmy tries to explain as he pours salt in the doorway, but she fights him, and escapes. The daughter gets away, Amelia close behind. But not close enough, as she nearly runs into a bloody Roger, standing with the daughter, a knife at her throat.

Jimmy begs him to let her go, but Roger says he can't. His wife has other ideas. And just at that moment, a demon-possessed woman begins pummelling Jimmy. Amelia leaps on her back. While they fight, Dean slices Roger's throat with Ruby's knife. Sam tries to use his psych powers, but they don't work. The demon laughs, and starts toward Sam, but when Dean threatens it with the knife, it belches out in a funnel of black smoke.

The Winchesters grab the Novaks, and they take off in Metallicar. Somewhere down the road, they stop. Sam and Dean explain again that Jimmy is endangering his family. He needs to leave them - forever. Jimmy reluctantly agrees, and while Sam boosts a car so Jimmy's wife and daughter can stay with out of town friends, he goes to break the news to his family.

The Winchesters leave, Amelia and the daughter watch. As soon as they're out of sight, Claire, the daughter, asks "Why is he leaving again?"

Amelia looks at Claire, then slaps her. Her eyes roll black.

"Guess it's just not my day, is it? You little bitch," she says.

The plan

A few minutes later, the Winchesters are talking about the fight with the demons. Dean wants to know why Sam's psychic powers didn't work. Sam seems punchy, tired. He says he got a little dizzy. Dean wants to know why his powers seem to come and go.

"I don't mean to take a bite of you, but you're scaring me, man," Dean says.

"I'm scaring myself," Sam says.

Sam gets a call on his cell phone from Amelia. The demons have Claire and Amelia. He's supposed to meet them, alone.

Of course, the Winchesters won't let him go alone. They arrive at an abandoned factory. They tell Jimmy to pretend to be alone. Jimmy leaves, asking for a minute before they go in. As soon as Jimmy is out of sight, Sam tells Dean that it's probably a trap, they're expecting the Winchesters.

"Yeah, I know, that's why I have a plan," Dean says.

Jimmy is praying. Or more accurately, shouting at Castiel. Cas promised that Jimmy's family would be safe. "You promised, Cas. Help me!" Jimmy shouts.

He goes inside to find Claire tied up and Amelia possessed. A moment later, the Winchesters are brought in by a couple of demons.

"Nice plan, Dean," Sam says.

"Yeah, well, nobody bats a thousand," Dean replies.

The demons have them, and the knife.

Return

"Now for the punch line. Everybody dies," Amelia says, and shoots Jimmy in the gut. "Waste the little girl," she tells one demon.

The demon walks up to Claire, and just as he's about to hit her with a pipe, she wakes up and puts her hand on his forehead. Light comes out of his eyes and mouth, and the demon is gone. Cas is in Claire.

The Winchesters take the cue, and surprise the demons holding them. They fight, Cas/Claire helping. Sam gets one on the ground and sees her throat. He resists for a moment, then nicks her throat, and starts sucking the blood. Cas/Claire and Dean are stunned. Sam stands and turns, his face blood smeared. He raises his hand toward them, and they flinch. But it's Amelia he's after. She was about to attack from behind. He easily pulls the demon from her, and she kneels on the floor.

Cas/Claire tells Jimmy that they keep her promises. Jimmy's work is done, and it's time for him to go home.

"Claire," he says, in pain.

"She's with me now. She's chosen. It's in her blood, as it was in hers," Cas/Claire says.

"Take me, take me, please," Jimmy says.

Cas/Claire tells him about Heaven, but Jimmy insists on trading places with Claire.

"As you wish," Cas/Claire says, and puts its hands on Jimmy. There's a bright light, and Claire is back, and Jimmy is now Cas.

Amelia runs to Claire, and Cas starts to walk away.

"Cas, wait," Dean says. "What were you going to tell me?"

"I learned my lesson while I was away, Dean. I serve Heaven, I don't serve man, and I certainly don't serve you." He walks away. Dean is ticked.

Trap

Dean and Sam are driving, in the dark, in the rain.

"All right, let me have it," Sam says. He knows Dean saw him, and he's waiting for the big fight.

"I'm not mad, Sam," Dean says.

"Come on, you're not mad. Right. At least let me explain myself."

"Don't. I don't care."

"You don't care."

"What do you want me to say, I'm disappointed? I am. But mostly, I'm just tired, man. I'm done. I'm just done."

Sam's phone rings. It's Bobby. He wants them at his house.

They drive all night to Bobby's. He leads them into the panic room.

"Now go on inside, I want to show you something," Bobby says.

"So what's the big demon problem?" Sam asks. He turns. Dean and Bobby are outside the door.

"This is for your own good," Bobby says, and shuts the door and locks it.

"Guys? Hey, this isn't funny. Guys!" Sam shouts.
