This was ok, I liked certain elements of the episode, at least we know what Dean saw in the book.
I knew as soon Dean hugged Sam, something was up, I don't think we have ever seen Dean hug Sam like that. Sam knew it as well, and pretty much everyone Dean came into contact with Mary and Donna knew also. I think Dean really needs to think this thru a little more there are other ways he could do this, I can think of other ways he can at least weaken Michael. taking some angel grace? put Michael into his old vessel? ask God to do something with him?
I liked seeing Donna though I was worried Nick would kill her, glad he didn't , I am tired of them always killing off people that we grow to like. is it wrong to say I like Donna more than Mary? well I do, Mary was more tolerable this time, but I don't think she can ever really redeem herself to me, but we will see.
Good old Sam not waiting to be called in and coming because he knew things weren't right.
So Nick knows the story now, what will happen to him now?

November, I feel the same way. I was afraid Nick would kill Donna because he had become so coldblooded. It was logical that Lucifer set everything in motion to trick Nick into saying "Yes". But Nick was willing to let everyone die in order to achieve his goal, so I do not feel empathy for him. Based on the million supernatural movies/shows I have watched, I did not think anyone could drill a hole in an Enochian box like that, but we have to go along with it.
I enjoy seeing Donna and I am glad she is staying around. Speaking of Mary, I did not get the impression that she misses her sons. Since Bobby was away, Mary could have come back to spend a little time with the guys. That relationship is really weird.
I hate the solution Billie gave Dean because that sounds like a living hell for all eternity. Plus Michael would be clanging away in Dean's head. Maybe I did not interpret Dean's plan correctly. Perhaps he intended to kill himself after he and Michael are trapped in the box. I do not know what to think about all of that.
Sam will always have Dean's back, but I cannot imagine him going along with Dean's lock-me-in-the-box plan.
I enjoyed the episode. But one thing confused me....when did AU Bobby have a son? How could I have missed that.
Dean thanking Sam for "trying" and then hugging him before he left was a huge indicator about what he was going to do.
Loved seeing Dean and Donna eat messy sandwiches and Donna knowing that Dean was trying to hide from her questions.
Why did Dean have to drive to Mary? Why hasn't she driven "home" to be with her sons? Is she still so fixated on the missing time with John and her boys growing up from children to adults?
Loved the "Winchester Mess" that Dean wanted her to make. But I thought she must have driven an awful lot of miles to/from the grocery store for Dean to have completed his box.
This was a good ending for Nick's character. Obviously he's not going to become Lucifer, he's dead, but he sure was brutal in the treatment of those he blamed for his family's death even after the demon told him he was just a chance picking by Lucifer, Nick was no one special. Glad Sam told him off.
So Dean wants to be sealed in the box and dropped into the Pacific Ocean with Michael inside his head. What would happen to Michael after Dean dies? I guess he would just be trapped in the box. But we all know someone would find him, so to me, that isn't even a good plan.
