The Hardy Boys Go Where Angels Fear to Tread

Now, where was I? Oh, yeah: Castiel politely admits he's considering disobedience, and Anna -- fallen angel that she once was -- finds this a spectacularly brilliant idea, like, duuuuuuh. Of course she would. "Good," she nods, and My Poor Little Sweet Baboo's forced to disagree. "No, it isn't -- for the first time, I feel..." He's unable to finish the sentence, but given the fact that tonight's secret word is apparently "doubt," I'd be willing to bet a few bucks that's where he was going with this. Anna confides that "it only gets worse" and that "choosing one's own course of action is confusing" and "terrifying," but Castiel doesn't want a lecture on free will -- he wants, quite simply, to be told what to do next. Awww. He's so simple and needy! "No," Anna flat-out refuses, for she is a bitch who will stop at nothing to hurt My Sweet Baboo's supposedly nonexistent feelings. "I'm sorry," she cruelly continues, "but it's time to think for yourself." And with that, she vanishes just as strangely as she'd arrived. Castiel, lost, stands alone on the frozen park walkway for a moment before the valve on a nearby water fountain catches his eye. He considers it for a moment before heading back to...

...The Abattoir, where he examines the broken trap, eyes the leaky pipe, and follows it all back to the source, which he shuts using a small bit of telekinetic energy just as Uriel materializes on the other side of the room. "Strange," Castiel ruminates, finally getting it, "how a leaky pipe can undo the work of angels, when we ourselves are supposed to be the agents of Fate." Uriel attempts a LIE -- and yes, even the angels are LYING LIARS WHO LIE on this show, because The Kripkeeper wants us all to kill ourselves by the end of the season finale -- but Castiel shuts him down immediately and, reminding his compatriot of their long history battling the forces of evil together, asks for the truth. "The truth is," Uriel replies, dropping the fa├žade, "the only thing that can kill an angel is another angel." With that, he lets a sharp silver blade drop into his hand from the sleeve of his jacket, and while the promotional slugs in advance of this episode's airing described it as "Lucifer's sword," no one in the episode itself describes it that way, so I'll leave it to you good people to debate its provenance on the forum boards. What we do know for certain, however, is that we enter the next commercial break both uneasily unsure of My Sweet Baboo's ultimate fate and utterly, completely, and most dishearteningly CHOMP!-less. "Woe! [Sob!]" Aw. Thanks for the commiseration, Raoul. "No problem!"
