Finding his opening to push for a series of truths, Dean pushed Cas a little further: “How did you get out of Purgatory, Cas? Just tell me how you got out of purgatory. Be honest with me for the first time since you’ve been back and this is yours,” he said.
Castiel argued with Naomi — both in his brain and in front of a very confused Dean — and tried to resist her prompting to kill Dean. But he lost that battle. In order to pry it from Dean’s hands, Castiel had to beat Dean to a pulp, as Naomi had trained him to. Then punch by awful punch, he turned Dean’s
beautiful face into a bloody mess.
And just before Cas was about to deliver the final — probably life-ending blow — Dean said probably the only thing that could have gotten him out of the situation. “This isn’t you,” he told Cas. “Cas, I know you’re in there. I know you can hear me. Cas, it’s me. We’re family. We need you; I need you.”
With that, Cas broke the bond with Naomi, dropped the knife, picked up the Angel Tablet, and bolted. (He fixed Dean, too.) According to Cas, he had to protect the Angel Tablet from Naomi — and Dean.
Crisis was averted inside, but outside, things went to you-know-where when the King of Hell arrived. Luckily, Meg has been stationed outside with Sam, so she was able to put up a fight. But in the end, she got a knife to the gut for her actions. Sniff. Bye, Meg.
So tell me, gang, were you sad to see Meg go? Did you enjoy the Megstiel scenes? Did you enjoy the semi-bonding moments between Meg and Sam? Where do you think Castiel is going? What do you think Cas meant when he said Sam was hurt in “ways he can’t heal”? (That’s concerning.) Did you have trouble watching the beating scene like I did? And what the heck is going on between Naomi and Crowley now?
“Would it kill these ass-hats to label things in something other than hieroglyphics?” — Dean
“Hey Doc Holliday, you alright over there.” — Dean
“What kind of flowers says, ‘Thanks for killing demons’?” — Dean
“You know, I can hear you both. I am a celestial being.” — Castiel
“So I have to ask — what’s up with the hair?” — Dean to Meg
“You know, I get why Crowley calls you Moose now.” — Meg
“Do I look like Google for you?” — Meg
“I still don’t know who Clarence is.” — Cas
Meg: “You remember everything?”
Cas: “If you’re referring to the pizza man, yes I remember the pizza man. And it’s a good memory.”
“You really think we can trust Megstiel?” — Dean
“I miss the simplicity [of the apocalypse] — I was bad, you were good, life was easier. Now it’s all so messy. I’m kinda good, which sucks. You’re kinda bad, which is kind of all manner of hot. We survive this, I’m gonna order some pizza and we’re gonna move some furniture around. You understand?” — Meg to Castiel
“Wait, that’s how you spent your last year? With a chick?! Lame.” — Meg
Dean: “I may not be able to carry the burden that comes along with these trials, but I can carry you.”
Sam: You realized you just kinda quoted Lord of the Rings, right?
Dean: C’mon, man. But it was the Rudy hobbit! Rudy Hobbit always gets a pass.
Dean: Shut up.
