I'm hoping to watch the last two again tonight so I can do my Tart stuff, but ]I agree with Sarah's observation, and I don't know so much about the 'quality' of the souls being an issue, but more the quantity. HOWEVER, I can't help but wonder if Mother is in there somewhere, and how much influence she might exert. I, too, am peeved at Dean for being a hypocrite when it comes to behavior. I think he's spinning out of control in his own way at this point -- killing the Phoenix (there had to be another way; think about what the myth is!), mindwiping Lisa and Ben, ultimatums with Cas (because that worked SO WELL with Sam -- I get that he was betrayed and hacked off, but to tell Cas to stop "just because" with no other rationale or options given: dumb, Dean). And balls! I liked Balthazar!
