Now Dean and Sam are finally reunited with their father John Winchester, he explains to be on the trace of a powerful demon which attacks people with young children, causing fatal fires, as happened to their mother Mary and to Jessica; he also learned to read predictive signs, and they point to Salvation, Iowa, so they go there, looking for catalytic kids. Then they learn a priest has been murdered and another friend, Caleb, has his throat slid while dad is on the phone with Meg or whatever possesses her, demanded he travels to Lincoln to deliver the old demon-killing Colt or everyone they ever cared for or were helped by will die too. To the boys' horror dad accepts, but explains to them he'll bring an ordinary antique instead, to win time while they stay behind and kill the demon when he attacks the innocent family, but split up they'll all be in grave danger...

Strong penultimate episode
6 September 2019 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

As a game of cat and mouse this is delightful. Meg is given a chance to shine as the demon badass that she is. And ol' Yellow Eyes is given a wonderful introduction. The family dramatic bits read genuine and germane to the character archs. Unfortunately, the show never does pay off the notion of Yellow Eyes's demon kids to a satisfactory degree.

Of course this episode the tradition of "Carry ON my Wayward Son..." and it fits.
