  • Super

    I love meg, cass, and Crowley seeing that trio plus Winchester boys at their most badass was awesome
  • Castiel's back !

    At last we see our Castiel. Not the sel centered dick he's been since the beginning of this season, but the funy angel who whatchs porn and tries to understand it. To be honest, I really don't like this new season, but I'm watching it because of Castiel.
  • I learned that from the pizza man

    It was a terrific episode with some good laughs from castiel who finds a thrill in watching porn and dean mocks him for having a boner, altogether it was a really good episode with a surprise appearance from meg and a twist at the start where you wonder which person is the crowly. i rate this episode a ten out of ten, because it was funny and it had a great sense of suspence and it made you wonder what was up with castiel, with his odd makeout session with meg, keep up the great work writers of supernatural!moreless
  • The best

    This episode is, I believe, the best one of this season. The winter finale was awesome, but I think that this one topped it. If it had a problem, I believe that it was the manner in which the Alpha Shifter was killed off. This show seems to have started the fan-unfriendly habit of building up the hype and then killing it (in the most anti-climactic way possible) with one discussion or one five-minute scene (like how in season 5, Dean was played up as the true vesse, and in the end, Adam was made it in an offscene dialogue or how the Michael/Lucifer thing was made to be so important and in the end, it was solved by a discussion from Dean). No more war preparations for him, I suppose (though it would have been good to see what he looked like in reality for once). The demon alliance with Sam and Dean made for a very good episode and throwing an ANGEL in the mix and setting it in monster Gitmo was SPECTACULAR work on the part of the writers. The boys have the demon-killing knife back (though I don't recall how they happened to lost it). Several plot strides were made. Sammuel is revealed to be a self-serving butt who's willing to sacrifice his own grandsons for his daughter back. He's now out there somewhere (perhaps in hiding because of Dean's threat) and likely doesn't know that Crowley is dead and that the demon will never be able to make good on his deal to bring back Mary. Crowley is now officially dead (as is Christian [who I never really liked anyway], who Dean shanked in hilarious fashion), a move that I thought Bobby should have made the moment he had oqwnership of his soul back. And finally, Sam has made his decision regarding his soul- he doesn't want it back. It seems that because of the likelihood that its mutilated state will kill him (because of how Michael and Lucifer are hate-banging it out of frustration and boredom), Sam has made the executive decision that he no longer wants his soul.... And we know how good he is at protecting what he wants. Let's see how this plays out next episode.moreless
  • Back on track!

    I was so worried that Dean was going to start liking his Grandpa. I knew he was a bad guy from the first episode and I was hoping Dean saw that too! I loved when Dean told "Grandpa" that the next time he saw him that he would be dead. That is the old Dean the Hell defying rough neck that kicks a**, even his Grandpa's. Samuel will hopefully get his a** handed to him in one of the next few episodes. Then I will be fine with never seeing him or his nieces or nephews again. I was so happy that Dean and Sam's extend family are no longer going to be in the show. I hated the idea of Dean and Sam riding around, hunting with them. That would have sucked.moreless

    • Alpha Shapeshifter: It's Purgatory. All I know is that I go there when I die. It's not like I can draw you a map.
      Crowley: I happen to know you can.
      Alpha Shapeshifter: You're wrong.
      Crowley: My sources are unimpeachable. You're the father of your entire species. You're really not pulling off this dumb blonde act. I hope you appreciate how much effort I've gone to... to find something that can actually hurt you. Yeah, my tinkering has got several lesser shifters their lives. Iridium. Rarer than hell. Would have been cheaper to drop a castle on you, but I think we all agree, worth it. So... you start talking, or I start chopping off all the bits that stick out.

    • Dean: Where's Crowley?
      Crowley's Demon: Banging a hooker in a sweet spot called "none of your business."
      Dean: Whoa. Look at that, Sam. Demon trying to be funny.
      Sam: Oh, is that what just happened?
      Crowley's Demon: Goodnight, girls.
      Dean: Wait, wait, hold up. Are we ever going to see Crowley again, or he is just going to keep sending his demon extras to pick up his laundry?
      Crowley's Demon: I'm sorry. I know you're speaking, I see your lips moving, but I can't understand what you're saying because I don't understand Little Bitch!

    • Dean: What now?
      Sam: I think I know who you can ask.
      Dean: (as Meg comes in) Evil bitch.
      Meg: Keep sweet-talking me, this could go a whole new direction.

    • Sam: Cas, we found something. It's this--this gold box. Apparently Nazis were after it back in the day. Someone tried to open it and their face melted off. Think it's--ready for this? The Ark of the Covenant. Yeah. So...
      Castiel: I'm here, Sam. Where's the box?
      Sam: I can't believe you fell for that. That was the plot of Raiders, idiot.

    • Dean: Mom.
      Samuel: He's going to give her back to me.
      Dean: Crowley's going to bring Mom back from the dead?
      Samuel: You tell me you don't want her back. You know the one difference between us? You know how to live without her.

    • Castiel: (watching TV) It's very complex.
      Dean: Umm-hmm.
      Castiel: If the pizza man truly loves this babysitter... why does he keep slapping her rear? Perhaps she's done something wrong.
      Dean: You're watching porn? Why?
      Castiel: It was there.
      Dean: You don't watch porn in a room full of dudes. And you don't... talk about it. Just turn it off! (Castiel looks down) Now he's got a boner.

    • Samuel: This what you boys do, sit around watching porno with angels?
      Castiel: I'm not supposed to talk about it.

    • Meg: Remember me? I sure remember you, Clarence.
      Castiel: Why are we working with these... abominations?
      Meg: Keep talking dirty makes my meat suit all dewy.

    • Meg: (after Castiel kisses her) What was that?
      Castiel: I learned that from the pizza man.
      Meg: Well, A+ for you. I feel so... clean.

    • Dean: Sam?
      Sam: Yeah?
      Dean: I'm standing in pee.
      Sam: Consider yourself lucky.
      Dean: Yikes. That sucks.

    • Samuel: No, really, tell me. Exactly what are you supposed to be to me?
      Dean: I'll tell you who I am. I'm the guy you never want to see again. Because I'll make it out of here, trust me. The next time you see me, I'll be there to kill you.
      Samuel: Don't think there's going to be a next time.
      Dean: Whatever gets you through the night.

    • Title:
      Referencing the 1974 movie of the same name, written and directed by Jonathan Demme and produced by Roger Corman. It's a typical Corman exploitation film set in a women's prison, although Demme writes much of it as a satire.

    • Sam: Cas, we found something. It's this--this gold box. Apparently Nazis were after it back in the day. Someone tried to open it and their face melted off. Think it's--ready for this? The Ark of the Covenant.
      Referencing the 1981 movie Raiders of the Lost Ark featuring Indiana Jones, an archaeologist adventurer seeking the lost Ark of the Covenant. When archaeologist René Belloq opens the Ark, all of the Nazis witness it being opened die horribly, as does Belloq.

    • Meg: I sure remember you, Clarence.

      Referencing the 1946 movie It's a Wonderful Life, based on The Greatest Gift (1939) by Philip van Doren Stern. Clarence Odbody is the guardian angel assigned to George Bailey to show the man that his life is worth living. In return, Clarence receives his wings at the end of the movie.

    • Dean: I mean, the guy's a freakin' replicant.
      Referencing the 1982 movie Blade Runner, based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Replicants are biorobotic beings created as duplicate humans, but lack emotional responses. Blade Runners are special police officers assigned to track down the ones that escape.

    • Dean: Shawshank's a great flick, but let's skip the shower scene, okay.
      Referencing the 1994 movie The Shawshank Redemption based on Stephen King's 1982 novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption. In the movie and the novella, new prisoner Andy Dufresne is raped in the showers by a prison gang known as "The Sisters."
