I enjoyed this episode and I am enjoying the season. We did not see Jack, but that is okay as long as he did not get into trouble while the boys were gone. For a moment, when Sam was being so chipper and accommodating, I wondered if something had possessed him. No, he was trying to cheer Dean up.
The guys investigated a house where a psychotic ghost killed some boys. Although Dean felt they did not do enough to protect the boy, the real problem was that neither surviving friend told the truth about what happened. As soon as Sam got the information about the haunted house, they went into action and dispatched the ghost.
I was not thrilled with Dean’s willingness to kill himself to talk with the ghosts, but I enjoyed his conversation with Billie while he was in the veil. I even laughed when Billie said they knew to keep the scythe away from Dean. Ah, “you’ve got work to do” always takes me back to the beginning.
It was heartbreaking to see Dean had given up and was willing to let go and move on to the afterlife. Billie’s “pep talk” might sink in at some point, but when Dean came back, he still seemed despondent.
The call from Castiel pepped him up. I wonder what everyone thought of the end scene where Castiel stood there and he and the boys stared at each other. I really thought he was going to say “Hello, Dean”.
Random comment: Supernatural continues to make interesting twists to the lore. When Billie was killed, she was promoted to wear the Horseman ring for “Death”.

To be honest I didn't care much about the case, I felt sorry for the teenagers even though they were doing dumb stuff like going into a haunted house. ( they must not watch horror movies, or Supernatural)
But I did like Dean's interaction with the teen whom was left( alive and dead) I am glad Dean did try and help him out and was doing what he could so the ghosts would be released. It was a little odd to see Dean to be this low, we don't often see him that low, but after all his losses I do understand, and I am glad to see him finally admit it to Sam. I wish Sam had been a little better and cheering up Sean but it was funny to see him try, the strip club LOL, and brining him hard liquor at the hotel. I loved the cute little moment when Dean tried to get in the hotel and was waving his hands an didn't realize you had to pull it open. When he was eating the bacon and a little piece fell out and he looked around to see if anyone was watching and then stuck it back in his mouth LOL.
For all the funny moment the drama was better with Billie, I really enjoyed their talk and to see how she had realized that the Winchesters were more important than she gave them credit for. I was happy to see her back on the show.
But I loved that last moment when Dean got some hope back and we saw Cas. I hope we can see a little how death changed him this time, the other times were shorter, but since this one was longer, maybe it not only changed him but changes something for the guys as well?
I enjoyed the episode. While I was unsure about the return on Billie (since so many dead characters seem to turn up again), her transformation into Death was a brilliant stroke. I loved that she was standing in a library where all the shelves were labelled "W" and they all contained the various ways that Dean dies! It reminded me of "Mystery Spot."
Too bad Sean had to die. I thought he was going to get lucky and be the one left behind. His poor Mom. I think she needs Jody!
The one thing I found odd was that Dean seemed to have a syringe that would kill him and one that would bring him back. Really??? And Sam didn't seem to know about them. Not buying it. And it looks like the revive potion didn't work...it was Billie that sent him back.
Loved seeing drunk Dean. Wearing dark sunglasses and loading up on greasy bacon to fight his hangover was very funny to watch.
I'm a little doubtful about the next episode but will keep and open mind.
