Lazarus Rising Delivers

Whoa, after months of waiting for Supernatural's latest installment, it's finally here. Well, I got to watch it after a day of its premiere in the United States as I follow some American shows through various video streaming sites; links to these programs are usually posted the next day. We were left with Dean in Hell and screaming for Sam to help him last season. And I know every aficionado of this show probably asked the same thing back then: How will Dean escape his fate this time? Will there be any more soul deals between the two brothers?

This season's first episode, Lazarus Rising, answers that but not until you're near the end (don't worry, no spoilers here). It felt for me though like it was a little sacrilegious bringing a whole new character to the plot which was responsible for Dean's escape from the infernal abyss. No, I'm not talking about Cassiel. I'm referring to somebody omnipotent who commanded this Cassiel guy to save Dean. D'oh, I think I just gave it away. Hehe.

Lazarus Rising exceeds expectations, and it overshadows everything shown this Fall (for me at least). Boy, we're in for a great Supernatural season.
