On the one hand, “Caged Heat” is a perfectly acceptable episode of Supernatural. Given the season we’ve had so far, I would happy to let perfectly acceptable see me through the season. On the other hand, it raises a couple of confusing questions. Metaphysical ones, to be sure, given Soulless Sammy, but also other, less spiritual questions like, “Can someone wash Dean’s mouth out with soap?”
Iridium Does an Alpha Bad
Crowley’s chained to a chair, being interrogating by . . . Soulless Sammy and Dean? Nope, Crowley. Seems he bagged himself an alpha. Alpha Shifter doesn’t know where purgatory is and doesn’t care if Crowley flays a nursery of his children to get the information he doesn’t have. Though iridium (not silver) works on him, even that’s not getting Crowley anywhere. So Crowley chops the alpha’s head off with a machete. Bye, Alpha!
