Dean went to hell for four months while Sam stayed on earth.  But what about heaven?  What is it like?  Who’s up there?  What goes on there while Dean and Sam fight against the Apocalypse?  Dean and Sam find out the hard way when two hunters shoot them dead in their beds.

Dean finds himself reliving some of his best memories in what he believes is a dream.  He wakes up in his car listening to “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” on the radio.  He finds a young version of Sam lighting fireworks, interacting with him as if Dean is also a kid again.

Castiel soon contacts Dean and tells him that he is in fact dead and must find Sam.  Their mission is to find Joshua in heaven’s garden, the one angel who talks to God.

Both Dean and Sam travel their way through old memories, finding out that one man’s heaven is another man’s hell, as the promo for the show goes.  Sam’s greatest memories are Dean’s childhood nightmares. 

Zachariah is after them and eventually finds and corners them in one of Dean’s memories of his mother.  They are saved by Joshua, the angel that they were looking for.

Unfortunately, Joshua has bad news.  He tells the boys that God doesn’t care about them or the Apocalypse and to stop looking for him.  After hearing this shocking news they are returned to earth, alive again.  Castiel takes the news badly, looking up and calling God a son of a bitch.  He gives Dean is amulet back.  It was an amulet given to him by Sam long ago.  Dean looks at Sam,  then tosses the amulet in the trash, signifying how Dean’s memories were meaningless to Sam. 

This episode left me with mixed feelings.  I find it hard to believe that God himself wouldn’t care about the Apocalypse.  After all, it’s in the Book of Revelations.  The episode leaves you with a feeling of loneliness and the inescapable truth that Dean and Sam are truly alone in their mission to save the world.  This sad truth is written all over Castiel’s angry and saddened face.  Sam is the only character that seems to have any hope, trying fruitlessly to rally Castiel and Dean together with him.

Misha Collins

I was watching a Charmed rerun and the character of the episode looked so familiar.  Then I started to look at his eyes and facial features.  I realized it was Misha Collins.  I love when I see an actor in his prime before he becomes more famous.  Collins plays a thin blond young man trying to save his father from warlocks.  It seems that he’s been dodging demons for atleast 10 years since the Charmed episode in 1999. 

Even though he may artificially deepen his voice to play Castielle, his voice is still much deeper now than it was then.  He was also thinner and seems to put on muscle since his Charmed days.

Misha has also played short roles on ER, Nip/Tuck, and Without a Trace.
