So, what did everyone think? I thought it was a pretty great episode. We and the boys both learned a lot and now have a lot of food for thought. It's a really interesting concept that at least some of the demons' actions are fueled by a religious faith. And poor Dean, he sounds so weary. It seems to me that he feels like he's been running his whole life and he's just ready to stop, to let go. It was great to see Bobby and I'm glad he's a regular this season. It was also interesting to see the colt back in action. I wonder what Ruby's motives are for helping Sam. I have some theories, but they're pretty far fetched, so I'll just keep them under my hat until we see a little more where this season is going.

I think Ruby wants to groom Sam to be the leader like lots of the demons want, but knows that the only way to do it, is if he doesn't know you're doing it. I liked them introducing the concept that demons are fueled by faith as well...I mean it stands to reason, if humans can be like that...why not demons? They're people too in a way. Dean does seem weary, and I was upset at Sam for killing off two demons who coulda possibly been on Sam's side...I mean they need all the allies they can get in this 'war'. It stands to reason the lines will get a bit blurry...and as long as they are helping...who cares? If their motives are awful you can always kill 'em later. I was happy to see the Colt put back together, but admittedly I'm suspicious since Ruby helped him. I mean, she didn't seem that bothered when Sam had it pointed at her...what if she put a safety mechanism so she could turn it off whenever she wants and the bullets turn back to regular bullets? Dean is tired, I think. He's had quite a full life, filled with frightening things. He's lost more than most people too..and he said he wasn't upset by the deal he made with the demon. That he was willing to go to hell. But then he thought prisons were fun...so maybe he thinks as bad as it'll be he might be able to rest there. I dunno. Anyway. I loved this episode, but I love all the episodes so..lol

I have this nagging idea that Ruby was perhaps meant to be Sam's "mate" or consort or something, and that's why she seems to have such an interest in him. This episode did introduce the idea that demons formed emotional attachments to one another, so it makes me wonder. A friend of mine wrote in her blog today that she felt the Richie character was there to emphasize the idea that Dean had had a life of his own while Sam was gone. I thought about it for a while, and I disagree. Maybe that was part of it, but I don't think that was the whole thing. I think that Richie, as well as the couple in the first ep, are meant to show that not all hunters look like bikers or Lynard Skynard fans. They're meant to broaden the world of the hunters, and let us see that there are hunters, easily able to blend into all sorts of groups or cultures. Oh, and another friend pointed out something *really* interesting. All angel's names end in -el, which means "of God". Lucifer's angel name was Samael. Coincidence?

If Ruby was meant to be with Sam, then that would explain how dominant she is...girl demons seem to really like control it seems. I heard she was gonna have a thing for Dean though...but I have no idea if that's true or not. I agree on your thoughts about Riche though, as briefly as we knew him, like the other hunter couple, he was there to show us that what we've seen so far from the Hunter's isn't a thing we should expect "as a rule". It might also be helping by saying, "The Winchester's allies may not always be who we expect them to be." As for the name Samael...well, if you've dabbled in studying demonology (which I have lol), you'll know alot of names end with El. Remember, Yellow Eyes's name was Azazael. And if we believe the christian mythology about it, all demons were more or less directly or indirectly made by God. But I see your thinkin'. 'Haps maybe the 'higher power' for good isn't really good...maybe he/it/whatever made them like that on purpose and had a really nasty plan in mind for our two favorite hunters. Which if that's the case, we'll be seeing more of Gordon's religious fanatic friend who believes he's being guided by God against Sam...believing Sam's the antichrist blah blah blah...what if it turns out Sam IS the antichrist, but the role is actually not completely evil like everyone thinks?

Azazel is an actual biblical character as well. I don't have enough posts to copy and paste yet, but you can look him up online, wikipedia seems to have a good entry.
