What first began with the Winchester brothers, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) searching for their missing father has now become a way of life as they hunt demons and protect people from malevolent supernatural forces.

The brothers now face their toughest challenge yet in Season 5 as their relationship deteriorates following Sam’s walk on the dark side. With his actions opening Lucifer’s prison and setting him free, Sam knows how much he is responsible for, but Dean is not willing to let him off easily. As the tension between them grows, the brothers have to find a way to trust each other if they’re to save the world from Lucifer.

They also have the help of the angel Castiel (Misha Collins), their friend Bobby and a few others along the way who try their best to keep the brothers together and the world from going to Hell.

The season opener Sympathy for the Devil sees Lucifer trying to convince a human vessel (Mark Pellegrino) to surrender so that he can take over his body. Dean learns that he is a human vessel for Archangel Michael but refuses to be persuaded to accept his fate. Castiel comes up with a plan to find God to help them defeat Lucifer. Dean however thinks that God doesn’t care much for mankind but eventually agrees to the plan.

In the second episode Good God, Y’All the brothers travel to a town where people are being possessed by demons. When they get there they find their old friend Ellen Harvelle (Samantha Ferris) trying to keep the demon population at bay which also includes her daughter. It turns out that the possession is a trick perpetrated by one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, War, in an effort to turn people against each other.

When Dean and Sam agree to part ways, unable to work or be around each other, Sam gets a visit from Lucifer who informs him of some very bad news. In The End, Dean visits his future self when the Apocalypse is raging where he finds out that future Sam accepts what Lucifer has told him, thus participating in the end of the world. Lucifer tells him that no matter what choice he makes, he will always end up in the same place.

Season 5 deals heavily with the idea of Free Will as the brothers are toyed with by Angels and demons. As their ability to choose their own fate weakens and so to does their trust in each other. What makes the show so interesting is watching how they make these choices and what leads them there.

As the 13th Century philosopher and theologian St Thomas Aquinas said:

Choice is the distinguishing mark of free decision. For we are said to be free in a decision when we can adopt one course and reject another: this is to choose.
