• ‘Supernatural’ 810, The angels are under threat in ‘Torn and Frayed’: Meanwhile, Castiel is still looking to repent for his sins with small acts of kindness, but he’s quickly dragged back into the war between angels and demons against his will by Naomi. It’s revealed that Crowley (Mark Sheppard) and his goons are subjecting captured angel Samandriel (Tyler Johnston) to brutal torture. Samandriel’s subconscious splits open under duress and dangerous tablet talk starts spilling out – music to Crowley’s ears. Cas recruits Dean to save the endangered angel, unaware that his motives are being moulded by his fellow angels. With the Winchesters torn asunder, we get plenty of Dean and Cas time this week – a rare treat in these days of Misha Collins only playing a part-time Supernatural role.
