Sam had flashbacks if you recall in this episode and he found evidence of souls being used on a mass scale. It was interesting to see a call back to the past and is this for a reason? Are the writers re-visiting old plots again to re-design them into something else entirely for Season 9?
Death said to Dean before he went back into retrieved Sam’s soul he firmly emphasized to Dean that it was all about ‘The SOULS’. Souls are untapped energy steeped in power at their disposal. This week the show re-visits this story line in a new twist. But what could this twist actually be. Sam released the souls into the atmosphere so they could be returned to their rightful owners. So what is Abaddon really up to under the surface? And could Abaddon and Crowley be working together as Cas and Crowley did during season 6. Cas wanted the souls for his own ego to defeat Raphael and be king of Heaven. Crowley isn’t befriending Dean out of the kindness of his soft nature, almost humanish heart. So if souls are the theme for this season, how does this tie up Abaddon, Crowley Cain and Dean’s involvement? Dean isn’t stupid, he’s aware something is bubbling under his radar but doesn’t know the full extent of Crowley’s wroth, so what is our King really up to with Dean?
Is the blade and killing Abbadon a smoke screen? As we’ve seen demon armies before on this show with Azazel and using Sam to do his bidding. So if the souls are the focus of this season into season 10 again, what are they ciphering that energy for? Is it more than just creating a demon Army. But why is Abaddon wanting to create that army. Are demons trying to take over Earth and rid it of humans for their own inhabitation? We saw also in season 7 that the Leviathan boss Dick wanted to use all humanity for his own power hungry games and push us humans out for his bigger picture? So what is really going on under the surface? We no this show likes to look back into its history, but how are these loose ends really all tying together?
So Bella would love to know how much you know about human souls, and why Abaddon is trying to multiply her asset and tap into human life, for what real gain? Is she working with Crowley, not trying to bring him down? If she is working with him as Cas clearly did in season 6, why would working with Crowley be of real benefit to her? Is she wiser than him, more in tune with her own crowd than Crowley ever was? But my biggest question has to be Dean’s use in all this saga, why has he been bought into this shady mix. He is the tool after all to defeat Abaddon. So is Crowley keeping Dean at arms length and keeping him as back up in case it all goes wrong with Abaddon. Or is Dean going to be part of their army in leading their powered up demons. But why?
