Here's the official description for the March 19 episode, "On The Head Of A Pin," written by Ben Edlund:Wow. This seems to jibe with the promo I posted last week. Ben Edlund has written some of my favorite episodes, and he can definitely hit the twisted humor sweet spot *cough* giantsuicidalteddybear *cough*. But something tells me this epi is going to be longer on the angst than on the funny.
Someone found Lucifer's sword and is using it to kill angels. Castiel (Misha Collins) and Uriel (guest star Robert Wisdom) have captured Alastair (guest star Christopher Heyerdahl) and ask Dean (Jensen Ackles) to use the torturing skills he learned in Hell to extract information from him so they can stop the murders. Sam (Jared Padalecki) is concerned Dean can't handle the job but Dean agrees to do it. However, when Alastair reveals some shocking information, Dean's world is shattered.
And it goes without saying - SQUEE!
