The Hardy Boys Get Snuggly, Hugly, Mean and Ugly

Subplot Of Suck. One of Sam's redneck friends arrives at the bar after hours, beaten to within an inch of his life. "Something you want to tell me, Sam?" the redneck asks, and I can tell you right now what just happened off screen without watching to the end of this godawful scene: A demon told the hunters that Sam set Lucifer free. Am I right? Oh, I don't know why I'm bothering to ask. Of course I'm right. "Of course! [Hic!]" Shhhh! Yeah, there's a tiny bit more to it than that, like the fact that one of the rednecks got his damn fool self killed, and the fact that the other surviving redneck -- who is actually A Redneck Of Color, if that's at all possible -- has just now barged into the bar dragging Lascivious Lindsay by her hair while threatening her with a knife, and probably some other things I'm either too bored or too aggravated to notice at the moment, but I'd rather get back to Maine at this point, and to do that, I must first brave yet another commercial break most woefully CHOMP!-less, and that's really more than enough for one person to bear, don't you think? "[Hic!]" Thanks for that vote of support, Raoul. "[Hic!]"

Maine. "There's no other explanation," Raphael preaches, "He's gone for good," and hoo-boy, maybe I don't want to be back in Maine after all. Sigh. And because Raphael's basic theological theory here was presented in far more compelling a manner at the climax of a rather well-known Pulitzer-Prize-winning play nearly twenty years ago, I'll keep it brief: The horrors of the last century could not have taken place were God truly in charge of this planet, so He must be dead. Or, you know, simply incommunicado for whatever damned reason, but the upshot is the same: He abandoned His creation, leaving the angels to run things on their own with no instruction, and now Raphael and his brethren just want it all over with already. "We just want Paradise," Raphael explains, beginning to weep, and I have to admit, despite the problems I have with this sequence, Demore Barnes is doing a hell of a job as Raphael, and I hope this is not the last we'll be seeing of him this season. Well, just as long as his next appearance is attached to a better script. Dean, of course, begins to rage his stumpy little self-righteous bow-legged self around the hovel, and when Raphael's had enough of his ranting, he implodes the hovel's remaining windows in a show of his still-extant power, hurling all of us back to...
