In this week’s episode of “Supernatural,“ we saw Sam take a pretty scary downward spiral as the damage from the trials continued its assault on his body. In next week’s episode, “Clip Show,” Sam’s still ailing, but despite his obvious illness, Dean remains completely sure that Sam will succeed in closing the gates of hell.
Sam and Dean seek information from a priest, who can’t help but notice how sick Sam is when he starts coughing up blood in the church. The priest is bewildered by the idea that Sam — in his condition — could take on the forces of hell.
Dean says, “Sammy’s gonna take whatever shredded your friend and every other black-eyed b**** out there, and he’s gonna get rid of them. For good. Father, over the past couple of months I’ve seen him do crap that I didn’t even think was possible. I mean, sure, he’s miserable and he’s hurting, but you know what, there’s not a doubt in my mind that he’s gonna cross that finish line. Not one.”
After a few seasons of tension between the brothers, it’s nice to see them in the same corner. Tune in Wednesday night at 9 p.m. EST.
