The family reunion gets bigger when Dean meets his and Sam's maternal grandparents, Samuel Mitch Pileggi and Deanna Campbell Allison Hossack , who are hunters who have brought Mary up in the life, thus making Mary a hunter as well. However, there is even more to this than Dean had imagined, as Mary had made a desperate deal with Azazel that resulted in his appearance the night she died.
Dean also finds out that Azazel had fed Sam his blood that night as part of a plan that Azazel hints is even bigger than previously thought. Dean fails to kill Azazel or save his family, and when Castiel returns him to his rightful time, he admits that there was no changing that because it was meant to happen.
Castiel and the angels only wanted Dean to find out what Azazel was up to for himself. Castiel then sends Dean to find Sam, warning him to stop Sam from going down the dark path he is on, or Castiel will, indicating that he will kill Sam if necessary. Cathryn Humphris. After watching Sam harness his powers and realizing that the woman he is with is Ruby, Dean angrily confronts his brother.
Distance and tension is put between the two brothers as Dean realizes that Sam is tapping into the demonic blood inside him with Ruby's help and lying to him about it. Sam argues that he is able to save people and exorcise demons at the same time, but Dean reveals to Sam what Castiel had said. A hunter who has known the Winchesters for years calls on Sam and Dean for help in a case in Carthage, Missouri involving a man who is going through a metamorphosis into a Rugaru —a monstrous creature that consumes human flesh.
During the hunt, Sam lashes out on Dean, saying he is tired of how Dean looks at him like a freak. Tension mounts between them even further as they disagree on how to deal with the man, with Sam advocating that they try reasoning with him so that he can try to control himself and Dean believing that the man can't help but give into his monstrous nature. Despite attempting to prevent it, the man completes his transformation when Sam and Dean's friend tries to kill both him and his pregnant wife and he can't overcome his instincts anymore.
He kills the hunter, but retains enough control to spare his wife. When the man tries to kill Dean, Sam is forced to kill him by burning him alive. Seeing what the man went through, Sam decides to stop using his powers. Robert Singer. The Winchester brothers find themselves at a local Oktoberfest celebration in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania , investigating a series of suspicious murders being perpetrated by what locals describe and are seen by the viewer in campy scenes filmed in black and white as monsters from classic s horror movies.
They soon discover this is the work of a shapeshifter Todd Stashwick obsessed with monster movies. The shapeshifter has become infatuated with the local bartender Jamie Melinda Sward whom it got close to in an alternate identity as a friend and co-worker Holly Dignard. Jealous of Dean's budding romance with Jamie, it captures them both with plans to kill Dean and make Jamie its bride.
Sam finds and frees Dean; while they battle the shapeshifter Stashwick , Jamie kills it by shooting it with Sam's silver-loaded gun, which it deems a fitting end to its own "movie. Charles Beeson. A few days before Halloween, Sam and Dean launch an investigation into two mysterious deaths in a small town. The brothers find hex bags and deduce that a witch is sacrificing people to summon a dangerous demon named Samhain.
Castiel arrives in town and tells Sam and Dean that the freeing of Samhain is one of the seals that will lead to freeing Lucifer. To protect the seal by killing the witch, Castiel brings a specialist angel named Uriel Robert Wisdom to smite the entire town to be sure of killing the witch, but is convinced by Dean not to and to give the Winchesters a chance to stop the witch.
Samhain is freed despite their best efforts; after Ruby's knife is knocked out of his hands, Sam is forced to use his powers to exorcise the demon, stopping the rise of the ghosts and demons he was causing. However, the seal is still broken. Uriel warns Sam against using his demonic powers and says that he will kill Sam as soon as Sam ceases to be useful to the angels. Still annoyed by Dean stopping him from smiting the town, Uriel tells Sam to ask Dean what he remembers from Hell, implying that Dean does, in fact, remember what happened to him there.
Meanwhile, Castiel reveals to Dean that his true orders were always to follow Dean's orders to test his leadership under battlefield conditions, though even he does not know if Dean passed the test. He confesses that he does not know what the "right" choice would be and that he has his own doubts, though he does not show them. Lastly, Castiel warns that hard times are ahead and says that he doesn't envy Dean for what is to come. Sam and Dean investigate Concrete, Washington , a small town where the wishing well really works. A teddy bear comes to life, a boy who is always bullied gets super strength, someone wins the lottery, and the town geek gets a hot girlfriend.
The brothers realize that while everyone is happy now, the end result will be disastrous because the magic will inevitably go wrong. The boys find that the origin is a magic coin that causes a fountain to become a wishing well, being that the coin's power is drawn from the goddess Tiamat. The only way to reverse the wishes is for the person who put the coin there to remove it. It turns out to be the geek and he is reluctant to do so, but after one of the wishes results in Sam's death, he removes the coin, reversing all the wishes.
Sam melts the coin down. At the same time, Dean helps the kid who was bullied keep up his new image of strength to prevent bullying in the future. With Sam having asked about what Uriel had meant by what Dean remembers of Hell, Dean finally admits to Sam that he does remember everything that happened in Hell, but refuses to tell him anything else, as Sam wouldn't be able to understand.
Ruby returns to give Sam and Dean a lead: other demons are searching for an escaped mental patient named Anna Milton Julie McNiven , who was locked up after she went into hysterics because she heard angels talking in her head about the upcoming Apocalypse and needed to be restrained after trying to warn people. Sam and Dean investigate and find that Ruby was telling the truth and that Anna's claims about the Apocalypse are uncannily accurate. After finding her parents dead at her home, Sam and Dean track Anna to her father's church, where Ruby arrives to warn them that one of the "heavy-hitter" demons looking for Anna has been following them since Anna's house.
They are unable to escape before the demon attacks them. It is then revealed that the new demon, whose name is Alastair Mark Rolston , knows Dean from his time in Hell. Sam recovers and stabs Alastair with Ruby's knife; while it doesn't kill him, it gives the Winchesters the chance to flee to safety. Believing they were set up by Ruby, Dean lashes out at Sam for trusting her, so Sam tells him what happened during the months Dean was in Hell. Sam's account is depicted in flashbacks, which show that he encountered Ruby Anna Williams again for the first time since Dean's death, while drunk and trying in vain to bring Dean back.
Though Ruby had been tortured and eventually released from Hell by Lilith on the condition that she kill Sam, she had only agreed to it to trick Lilith into setting her free, as she still wanted to help Sam. However, Sam rejected her because she couldn't save Dean from Hell, and demanded that she leave her host body to spare the host.
Ruby acquiesced and possessed the body of a brain-dead coma patient Cortese whose life support had just been cut so that she would not be usurping someone else's life.
The Supernaturals by David L. Golemon
She then returned to Sam, and he agreed to let her teach him how to use his powers to kill Lilith and avenge Dean. In the meantime, she made him quit drinking and provided him with some physical comfort when she seduced him. She finally earned his trust when she came after him and saved him from a trap Lilith had prepared for him, even though he had threatened to kill her if she tried to intervene. After the last flashback, Ruby briefly takes a different host Michelle-Hewitt Williams to find the Winchesters and give them Anna's location.
There, Dean extends an olive branch of sorts to Ruby Cortese due to his appreciation of how she helped Sam in his absence, and Sam is forced to break the news to a devastated Anna that her parents are dead. The episode ends on a cliffhanger, with Castiel and Uriel appearing and demanding to be taken to Anna so that they can kill her. Miller Tobin. Anna banishes Castiel and Uriel by cutting her wrists and drawing a mysterious symbol in her blood, though she doesn't know how she knew to do it. Wanting answers, Dean and Sam call upon Pamela, who uses hypnosis on Anna to unlock her memories of her mysterious early years.
Doing so restores Anna's memories of what she truly is: a fallen angel who had become human by ripping out her Grace which she describes as being like an energy that is intrinsic to angels. Sam manages to track down her Grace, which would turn her back into an angel and restore all her powers, but when the group goes to retrieve it, they find that it has already been taken. Anna receives an ultimatum from the angels, that she is to be given to them or else Dean will be sent back to Hell. The group seems to be at a loss for a plan. That night, Anna approaches Dean and tries to broach the subject of what happened in Hell.
Although he can't talk about it, she offers him reassurance and kisses him, which culminates in them having sex in the Impala on her last night on Earth. Meanwhile, Ruby goes to Alastair with the proposition of her handing over Anna if he will let her and the Winchesters go. He instead captures and tortures her with her own knife for the others' location. At the same time, Dean is forced to give their location away to Uriel, who has invaded his dreams and is revealed to be the one who took Anna's Grace, under threat to Sam.
The demons and angels arrive and battle each other.
During the confusion, Anna retrieves her Grace from Uriel. In a flash of light, she becomes an angel again and she and Alastair vanish. Castiel and Uriel, too, leave, in pursuit of Anna. It is revealed that Ruby and Dean betraying the others was all part of Sam's plan to get the angels and demons to fight it out to give them the opportunity they needed. In the episode's ending, Dean confides in Sam that it was forty years in Hell instead of four months and that every day, Alastair tortured him and then offered him release from the torture if he tortured souls himself.
After thirty years, Dean finally gave in, but is now haunted by his actions. Since the previous episode, Sam and Dean have been hunting non-stop at Dean's insistence. This episode has them investigate a murderous young female spirit inside the walls of a suspected haunted house in Stratton, Nebraska. Complications ensue when a family of five moves in, and the "spirit" turns out to be two humans, a young pair of sibling feral children who are the product of incest and years of abuse and who are willing to kill to protect their home. The brothers fail to get the family to leave, but when the son is kidnapped through the walls, they look to Sam and Dean to rescue the boy.
Dean manages to rescue the son, but is forced to shoot the feral brother dead in self-defense while the father of the family is forced to stab the girl to death to protect his wife and daughter. In the ending, Dean reflects on the children with pity, sympathizing with them on what they had become after a lifetime of abuse because of how he himself had tortured souls in Hell after being tortured to the breaking point. He believes that he is even worse than the feral children because they hadn't understood what they were doing and took no pleasure in it, whereas he had in Hell, having relished the opportunity to inflict pain on others after having endured so much himself.
Sam and Dean attend a magician 's convention in Sioux City, Iowa where it seems that real magic is being performed. Their investigation leads them to Charlie John Rubinstein , Jay Barry Bostwick and Vernon Richard Libertini , three friends who were famous magicians in their day but have now been replaced by flashier, younger magicians. Jay's despair over this drives him to perform numerous tricks on-stage that should have killed him and yet he comes out unscathed, while magicians who had irritated the three older magicians die of mysterious wounds reflective of the trick at the same time.
Sam and Dean suspect that Jay is a witch and go after him, but he is innocent. After Charlie is the next victim of his death tricks, Jay realizes that Vernon must be the one responsible and agrees to help Sam and Dean flush him out. However, Vernon is also innocent; the real witch is Charlie, who has faked his death and restored his youth.
He had been protecting Jay because he regards Jay and Vernon as true friends, and offers to grant them both eternal youth and immortality as well. Jay refuses the offer and uses a trick to kill him for good in order to save Sam and Dean's lives. However, with Charlie dead and Vernon refusing to speak to him, he is left sad, bitter, and alone. Seeing this, Sam finally agrees to a proposition Ruby had made earlier in the episode to rejoin her in hunting Lilith and practicing his powers, despite the fact that he has strong reservations against one of the unrevealed methods they are using because he doesn't want to spend the rest of his life hunting.

The extraordinary abilities of these women showed resistance to traditional gender roles while the super women experienced infringements on their abilities in ways super powered men did not.

The Rising has a comic-book feel that really pulls the reader along. Primary characters are fleshed out fairly well and easily relatable.
And the writer takes his time to describe the settings well. The plot takes a little while to build, but moves very quickly and maintains a good pace. Location settings were done very well and I enjoyed moving from place to place. I felt the different locations really helped the mood. The high-school camaraderie was excellent. I laughed quite a bit during the second half of the book. Fans of the series might take offense. All in all, I enjoyed reading this. The ending is wide open for a sequel, which I would definitely consider reading.
