Im pretty sure that a TITAN alone can wipe out Crowley's demon minions. so it wouldn't be that much of an epic final battle imo.
Also i want the character of DEATH to make an appearance at least once before this season is over !!.
Is it just me or are Sam and Dean gaining a whole lot of allies for the past few episodes? This episode Artemis, last episode James and Portia, a few episodes back Aaron and his Golem, and before that they find Charlie (again), not to mention Castiel, Kevin, and Garth. That is a whole lot of making allies if you ask me. Didn't they say that Crowley wasn't going to let them close the gates the of hell without a fight. What if in one of the last episodes the Winchesters call in for some reinforcements? Imagine that. A Witch and his familiar, a Golem, an Angel, a Titan and Garth, fighting it out against Crowley and his Demon army.
I'm calling this one here. One of the last episodes this season will be called "A Little Help From My Friends", and will have this plot.
And the last one I bet will be, "Sha na na na Goodbye".
I put a lot of thought into this
I look forward to this show every week.. My friends and I talk about it for das after..Love it..ope it does not end anytime soon.
You had me agreeing to everything until you stated that "Gods Must be Crazy" was a better episode than last weeks (MBFWB) I think the concept of greek gods "could" have been done WAY more interestingly than was portrayed. I was seriously underwhelmed. Zeus is much more of a badass than was shown and I really doubt that Artemis arrow could have done him in so easily. IDK, I love Greek gods, but I really think show dropped the ball and the story was lame. Prometheus & Artemis were really hot but Baby Mama had the worst acting skills Ive seen on show in a long time. I am still loving the Bat cave and all that it entails--the whole Legacy thing" I guess Im more impressed than the Gods were...lol. Sam REALLY really needs to come clean with Dean about the blood etc cause at this point (after everything they have been through) his whole silence is coming across as stupid at this point. Also, I would LOVE for show to focus more on the Men of Letters legacy--I know this would
I adore Brooke Langton (The Replacements). I didn't know it was she at first, I just thought What a drop dead gorgeous and talented actress. Then I saw her name, Googled it, and bingo! And the little fella was wonderful. The acting on Supernat is just so spot on. Jensen's final monologue prayer reduced me to tears. He's done that before. These two guys are just the best and why they have not been nominated for Emmys is beyond me. The episode itself: Interesting, not my favourite, but no Supernat episode can ever really disappoint.
I did not watch it this time. I was watching Law and Order SVU. I did flip to SPN to get a fill on what was going on. Although it felt strange not watching it I'm glad I did. Once they said they were going kill Zeus I had enough then. I just hate that I missed the prayer. Maybe I will watch online.
Remember at the Kevin Tran auction they referred to God as "capital G". So the show recognizes an "alpha" God, as it were: seemingly the God of the Abrahmic faiths is that God.
Otherwise, it's fairly normal for humans to refer to beings or elements that have more control and power than themselves as "gods". It doesn't just have to be entities, it can be concepts which have more control over our own lives than we do: Fate, Destiny, Life, Death, Time. Even with more powerful animals, those animals have been turned into near god-like beings in some cultures (wolves, lions, etc). This is one reason why the person of Jesus Christ was difficult for even the apostles to swallow ... if Jesus was a divine being, why didn't he overpower others ? It's easier to identify the one overpowering and killing everyone against their will in a room as a "god", but not so much the others.
Not the best episode ever. Not the worst either.
Artemis was a virgin goddess, it would had been nice to remember that, and the kid was so...off.
I wish Dean went back to his S1-2 self. I mean, his jokes are so dumb now, it makes me sad because he used to be a really funny, smart character. But at least he's noticed Sam is not okay, Sam hasn't needed to tell him, and they're not arguing on that (yet).
I loved the final scene. Sam praying to save his brother, about to cry...reminded me of one of the best scenes Dean has had, when Sam died in season 2. Good job there, Jensen.
The small domestic scenes where the brothers are together in the batcave are so cute.
@jrwt I hear ya cuz I'm missing the music too!

I loved this episode. I adore both brothers equally and wonder why they sometimes have Dean being "dumb" to the most basic things, but brilliant to some of the more difficult facts. Meh. Dean had me near tears with his sweet, desperate prayer to Castiel; all that was missing was him kneeling at the side of his bed. He knows Sam is in big trouble after only one of the trials and is appealing to his angel friend for help, but there is only silence and no Cas--which gives Dean another worry. As for the Prometheus/Zeus/Oliver story, I thought it unique and engrossing. When Oliver spoke to Sam--his first words in a long time!--I teared up. It was sad that Shane had to sacrifice himself for his son, but that's what parents do. Let's just hope that Sam doesn't have to die--again--when these trials are over. As for Sam becoming a god. . .I don't know about that. Could he still hang out with his brother if he became a god? -- Love, Robin
I don't think I will ever stop watching SPN because I love my boys, but there were parts of this episode where I was like whaaaa? I disliked Hayley and the kid. Annoying. I liked Prometheus and Zeus, they were cool. I hate that Sam is hiding things from Dean AGAIN. I liked Dean's prayer at the end. That about sums it up for me.
After 8 seasons people seem to forget what happened early in the series. A lot of the things people nitpick about have been explained, mentioned, or used to be every day occurances. Sam was always the smart one. He did the research while Dean...ate pie. I was a little surprised they took the people to the batcave at first but really it was the safest place. And they've burned bodies before, it's easier then trying to explain it. Prometheus wasn't a god jrwt, he was a titan. Why shouldn't he recieve a hunter's funeral? The hunters got it from the funeral pyres of the Vikings, Romans, and other religions. It's not something specific to hunters.
This episode sucked big time. I didnt care about the characters, the kid was weird and Dean gets dumber each episode. And now Sam has doubts about the trials. So, Dean was basically right all along.. when he said he should do the trails, not Sam. What the hell is going on with SPN? I am go glad all the characters I like are back on the 20th. In the meantime, I am going to watch the glory days of SPN on Netflix.
I love this show and most always support these "off" episodes because I have always thought they were fun and they need other things to do than just fight the big evil every single episode...b u t this one just didnt do it for me, yes Dean nailed it as always with the looks, onle liner and wise cracks but the story for me just was blah with to many holes...when the previews for next show were the best part, well thats not a good thing! that said tho the next episode looks like it will be rockin'!!!
I think zeus is dead even though he disappeared. Wasn't that just Artemis taking her father with her when she left?
Alright if everyone watch this show since day one they would know that the show did explain that the gods of asguard thor,odin or greek gods did exist at one time but when god and his angels cames they handed the planet over to them because they where stronger
What I find confusing and a little irritating. They introduce God, the Devil, Angels and Demons- This is from Christianity (with a little Judaism and Islam thrown in), then they introduce Thor, Krishna and the Greek Gods. I get they want them to exist but how can they call them Gods when they've already established that there is one God and he's the one behind Heaven and Angels and created mortals etc... Dit maak nie sinnie. It doesn't make sense.
the problem with introducing angels now is that they mysteriously disapear whenever they are really needed.
Also i love the greek gods and stuff but it really doesn't make any sense when they try to act like all religions are real at the same time.
Also all these other gods pale in comparison to the christian one right? So i'm not sure how they ever thought they would be ruling the world while they were still around.
What the h311 was that??? Ick. I agree with you jnwt. Just take random characters to the bat-cave with little or no proof of their identity? Prometheus just happens to look like Christian Bale's little brother from The Dark Knight series. What viewer's gave this such a high rating?? And NO ONE looked or sounded Greek! Anglo-American or British. *groan* No one schooled the mom on bluffing? Sheesh. Lame, lame, LAME episode.
The concept of this episode was good, I just think it was poorly executed. in my honest opinion there is no way Sam and Dean can take out Zeus that easily.He's the freaking god of gods for petes sake !!... same issue I had in that 1 episode a while back when Lucifer took out all of those other gods so easily,including The all father himself ODIN !!
other than that it was really kind of dull.. this was a poor episode to air prior to the show going on hiatus... something that should've left us on the edge of our seats should of occurred tonight.But insteasd we got dean praying to cass.
I really must be watching a different show from the reviewer because I am so mad at this garbage that I could pull my hair out. Disposal episode with disposal, cardboard characters. Once again writing that can's seem to hold my interest for five minutes. But my biggest problems are with the brothers. Now all of a sudden Sam know everything, Dean in a simpleton with bad hair. We know take random strangers to the batcave when Garth hasn't evern been there. We act like some woman we just met and a whiny, amnesic God should be granted a Hunters' funeral with Dean comforting the poor widow and Sam thinking some son of a God would want "ice cream". And Sam now has doubts after Dean told him that this wasn't going to be a walk in the park. Give me a break please. Thank God Cass, Meg and Crowley are back for the next episodes or I would just toss this season away. Does anyone else miss music as much as I do?
