The Hardy Boys Get Déjà Vu All Over Again
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

A bloody colored THEN bursts onto the screen and fades to black. We see Sam carrying two children (possibly from "Home") down the stairs. In voice-over, Dean says, "Look Sam, we've saved a lot of people." Dean saves the little boy from Dead In The Water. "But we can't save them all." The victims include a pretty blonde I can no longer remember, wearing a white negligee and not much else except her own blood that drips down into her décolleté. She lies dead with her throat slashed. The opening guitar riff from Billy Squier's "Lonely Is The Night," blasts through the TV, so you know something badass is coming. We're on the other side of a door that's kicked in with great force and hooray! It's the fandom's favorite sassy blonde...

Jo! Just kidding. From "Scarecrow," Sassy introduces herself to Sam in a bus station. "I'm Meg." Next Meg's caught in the Devil's Trap. With a scream, she gives up the ghost and dies. Flash to Sam saying, "Ronald Resnick." A red laser beam shines on his back. A bullet tears right through him, exploding out his chest and he's gone. Bye bye, Ron. Whoosh Special Victor Henrickson announces his presence with great bluster. Then Lilith v.1 turns her creepy whited-out eyes upward, and a far less blustery Henrickson tries not to pee his pants as she white lights him to death...

Lonely is the night, when you find yourself alone. Sam says, "Dean, you're not going to go to hell." Ruby!Lilith says, "Sic him, boys." Dean is puppy chow. Ruby!Lilith tries to white light Sammy to death, to no avail. Dean's stuck in Hell. Dean copies Buffy and digs his own way out of his grave, but it's in broad daylight and nowhere as creepy and scary. All the windows blow in at Dean's first post-Hell pitstop. Sam and Dean are reunited. They hug. Dean kills a demon disguised as a cop. Sam exorcises the waitress demon with 100% less Latinizing and 100% more mojo. NuRuby comes out of the shadows and makes eyes at Sam. Bobby and Dean summon Castiel, who takes a bullet better than Superman, and has a better motto, too: "I'm the one who gripped you tight and raised you from perdition." Wings! Pointy teethed monsters. Decaying monsters. Blonde monsters. Sam driving! Dean driving! Dean with a flash light. Dean with a look. Sam looking broken. Dean fighting. Metallicar! Sam fighting. Someone shooting. Sam fighting badly. Dean shooting. Things burning. Red rooms. Big knives. Crashing through walls. Dean mouthing off to Castiel who brought him (back) into this world and can take him (back) out (again). Castiel speaking slowly and clearly like one might to a learning disabled child. "Because God commanded it. Because we have work for you." I have work to do too, which was hindered considerably by that long set of clips from prior episodes. Note to self: Send Craig Thomas and Carter Bays a thank you note for not including clips that run 1:45 before each episode of How I Met Your Mother.
