As Dean and Crowley enters her shop, Tara is reading "Welcome to Lovecraft", the first part of the "Locke & key" fantasy/horror graphic novels series. See more »


While the viewer could have easily assumed the First Blade would be found somewhere in the contiguous 48 US states since that's where the show takes place for scenes on Earth (barring one scene in season 6 that took place in Scotland), the characters could not have known for certain it would be in the US at all, so when they used the locating spell they should have used a world atlas, as opposed to the map of the US they used, because it would have been a waste of spell ingredients and time had the blade turned out to be anywhere outside the US.

Brilliant and new

Wow, the opening scene tells me this will be a good one. Cain is awesome, the actor is great, the first blade story is gripping. At long last an episode that truly captures the imagination and well worth watching. Not a big fan of Crowley but he is great in this episode. Dean and Crowley do the friend/enemy thing really well. Very promising for the future.
