“Supernatural” Season 9 Episode 22 “Stairway to Heaven” aired on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. on The CW. Tessa the Reaper came back! What did she do now? Read on to learn more about MNG’s “Supernatural” recap of Season 9 Episode 22 “Stairway to Heaven.”
Previously on “Supernatural” (“Stairway” to Heaven” Season 9 Episode 22), Sam (Jared Padelecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) went to the ice cream shop to investigate about an angel suicide bomber who did it using Castiel’s name. Just a little rewind, we saw Sam and Dean arguing whether Dean should bring the First Blade or not. Sam was worried about it and the Mark of Cain’s effects on his brother. Both caused him to kill without reason.
The three had only one goal, and that is to kill Metatron (Curtis Armstrong). Gadreel (Tahmoh Penikett) confronted Metatron about the angels gone crazy, exploding themselves. Though we were expecting a direct answer from Metatron, he tried to change topics into telling Gadreel that he knew about his meeting with Cas. Then, the two went on their way to find Tyrus, an angel leader.
The trio found a footage about one of the angels’ bombings. The angel had a sigil on his chest, atomizing another angel which belongs to Metatron. Cas was sickened with what he saw. In the angel’s HQ, Hannah (Erica Carroll) informed them that Josiah was missing in his rank. They suspected him as the mole in the group. Sam and Cas traveled to find him, while Dean took care of interviewing those related to the bombing incident. Dean, by threatening an angel, managed to solicit information about the two others: Tessa (Lindsey McKeon) and Constantine.
We saw Dean interviewing an old buddy in the HQ. Dean planned on torturing Tessa to gain information. Hannah stopped him, saying that the only one allowed to castigate them was Cas. Tessa confessed to Dean that she was working under the orders of Cas. Dean saw the same sigil mark on Tessa. Moreover, there were a lot more like her. Tessa, of course, did not name names, which lead to Dean pulling out the First Blade. When Tessa saw it, she pushed herself towards it, killing herself. The other angels saw Tessa dead, and you know what this may mean for Dean.
Back with Sam and Cas, in the search for Josiah they were lead into what they believed wasa portal to Heaven, but it was a set up. They found Josiah in bad shape at the lounge. He refused to take Cas’ help and died. The two went back in the HQ to find the tied Dean. Metatron then called them and offered amnesty to the other angels who would recognise him as God. Tyler was dead because of the attack in the bowling alley caused by Constantine. Hannah wanted Cas to prove himself by punishing Dean. Of course, he did not. This left the angels without a choice but to join Metatron.
Meanwhile, Gadreel learned that Metatron built that army. He now went to the bunker where the trio was staying to offer them helpful information on how they could take down Metatron. Dean approached Gadreel and offered a handshake. Then, he pulled out the First Blade and slashed him through the chest. Will Gadreel survive? The only way to find out is to watch the next episode (“Supernatural” Season 9 Episode 23 “Do You Believe in Miracles”), which airs on Tuesday, May 20, 2014.
