On tonight’s “Supernatural” season 9, episode 11: “First Born,” looking to reclaim his place as King of Hell, Crowley asks Dean for help finding “The First Blade,” the only blade that can kill Abbadon. Knowing he owes Crowley a favor for helping Sam, and also wanting Abaddon dead himself, Dean reluctantly agrees and the two set off on a road trip. However, Dean and Crowley are completely unprepared when they find out who has the blade – Cain, the first son. Meanwhile, Sam is back at the bunker with Castiel who notices there is some leftover grace inside Sam. If they can extract it, they can use the grace to track Gadreel. The only problem is the procedure may do permanent damage to Sam.
“Supernatural” follows Sam and Dean Winchester, two brothers bound by tragedy and blood to the one thing that runs through both their veins – hunting monsters. This past season, Dean and Sam faced insurmountable obstacles: Sam returned from Hell without his soul, and Dean risked everything to get it back for him. The power struggle between good and evil raged on, with the new King of Hell, Crowley, ultimately emerging as their adversary. Shockingly, Crowley had made a secret deal with Sam and Dean’s closest friend, the angel Castiel, who is now a desperate freedom fighter on the losing side of a post-apocalyptic civil war in heaven. Together, the uneasy allies sought to open a door to purgatory, where a great untapped well of souls lies waiting to be used as the ultimate form of military power.
“Supernatural” season 9, episode 11: “First Born” airs Jan. 21, 9:00 p.m. ET on The CW. Spoiler video below:
