Point Of No Return

Written by Jeremy Carver.

Directed by Philip Sgriccia.

Air Date: April 15, 2010.

Sam and Dean's half-brother Adam has been resurrected by the angels, who have told him that he is going to be Michael's vessel and save the world. Sam, Cas, and Bobby hold Adam at Bobby's house, along with Dean, who has lost all hope and intends to say yes to Michael as soon as he can. Dean is locked in the panic room, but he manages to escape. He goes to the nearest missionary and tries to call Zachariah, but Cas finds him first. Furious, he gives Dean a good smackdown before taking him back to Bobby's.

Meanwhile, Adam has spoken to Zachariah in a dream and has been zapped away to the angelic green room. Zachariah explains that Adam is nothing but bait for the other two brothers, who he expects will put aside their differences for the rescue. Sam and Dean do exactly that. Dean is skeptical and warns Sam that he will say yes, but Sam says that he trusts Dean will do the right thing. Cas tells them there are five angels there along with Adam, and goes in first to take out the four guards. He carves the angel-banishing sigil into his chest with a box cutter, kills the first guard, and banishes the other three, taking himself with them. The way clear, Sam and Dean break into the green room, and Zachariah begins killing Sam and Adam to force Dean to say yes. Dean does, but then tells Zachariah that one of his conditions is that Michael kill Zachariah first. In the resulting confusion, Dean stabs Zachariah and kills him. Sam and Dean escape, but Adam gets left behind as Michael arrives and the room falls apart.
