 We get it. There are solely so many issues that may go bump on any explicit night time – Thursdays, for example. So within the SUPERNATURAL episode “A Most Holy Man,” Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki), together with brother Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), spends extra time making like Sam Spade than a monster hunter.

“A Most Holy Man” is SUPERNATURAL’s nod and wink to the basic movie noir THE MALTESE FALCON. The episode isn’t shy about this: the maguffin that everyone’s after is definitely from Malta, and a variety of characters are named after actors who had been within the 1941 film starring Humphrey Bogart and directed by John Huston, primarily based on Dashiell Hammett’s novel. (There was an earlier however much less well-known movie adaptation made in 1931, however we digress. However so does this episode.)

There are literally a number of maguffins right here. One is the cranium of Saint Peter, stolen from a nunnery in Malta on the episode’s begin. The opposite is the blood of “a most holy man.” Sam and Dean are nonetheless making an attempt to pay money for the final 4 elements for the spell that ought to open the doorway to the place their mother and Jack are trapped. With no thought of the right way to get the Seal of Solomon, no present location on Lucifer to get the grace of an archangel (fallen archangel nonetheless counts), and Castiel working round Syria to attempt to get the fruit of the Tree of Data, the boys decide on buying the blood.

Dean and Sam determine to interpret this as which means the blood of a Catholic saint. How they arrive to this conclusion, in any case their adventures with God and angels, is an effective query that goes unanswered. Nevertheless, when the Winchesters attempt to purchase saint’s blood from holy relics dealer Margaret Astor (Leanne Lapp), she flirts wildly with Sam. Then Astor sends them to a different supplier, Richard Greenstreet (Dominic Burgess). Greenstreet has saint’s blood, which he affords to change for the cranium, which he says has been stolen on behalf of mob boss Santino Scarpatti (Al Sapienza).

When Dean and Sam make it to the lodge room of the thief, somebody has clearly gotten there earlier than them, because the thief is lifeless and the cranium is gone. Scarpatti’s males decide the boys up. Scarpatti tells them that if they will recuperate the cranium for him, he’ll give them sufficient cash to purchase the blood from Greenstreet.

On a second go to to the lifeless thief’s lodge room for clues, Sam sees a bit of paper with a string of code on it. He’s then knocked out by a person who seems to be Father Lucca Camilleri (Massi Furlan). When Dean will get the drop of Camilleri, the priest explains he’s from the nunnery, hoping to purchase again the stolen cranium. It’s treasured to the congregation. Sam believes him. When Dean doesn’t fairly get it, Sam asks Dean what he’d do if somebody stole Child the Impala. Dean goes right into a reverie of the form of homicide – after which torture, after which extra homicide – he’d inflict on anybody who would dare do such a factor; it’s unclear if Sam ever makes his level. Nonetheless, they resolve to assist the priest recuperate the cranium.

By now, the Winchesters have a Scarpatti mob drawback. Previous to this, we surprise why they didn’t merely revise their notion of what “a most holy man” would possibly imply. They’ve received a Prophet of the Lord in a coma in a hospital – wouldn’t he depend? Now, even when they determine one other resolution to their blood scarcity, they nonetheless need to cope with Scarpatti’s wrath.

Then Father Camilleri has an epiphany and remembers the numbers on the scrap of paper Sam noticed. That is so handy that we turn out to be suspicious of Camilleri, however no, he’s simply received a very good reminiscence. Since neither our suspicions nor Camilleri’s mnemonic capabilities lead us wherever, it appears they may have simply as simply saved the scrap of paper and gotten the code off of that. Ah, nicely.

The code seems to be a monitoring quantity for a shipped bundle. Our guys present up simply in time to see corrupt cop Cromarty (Fulvio Cecere) accumulate the bundle. They observe him to a warehouse. The bundle is the cranium. Astor had the cranium stolen from the unique thief in order that she might stage an public sale between Greenstreet and Scarpatti.

Within the automobile, Camilleri explains that he doesn’t wish to steal the cranium again – he desires to purchase it again with a suitcase stuffed with donations from the congregation. Whereas Sam goes into the warehouse with the cash, Dean and Camilleri take time to have a dialog concerning the nature of religion. Camilleri has religion. Dean greater than believes in God, he is aware of God exists, however he doesn’t have religion. He tells Camilleri that God doesn’t care about both of them.

Okay, significantly, cease. If God didn’t care about Dean (and Sam), they’d each be lifeless a number of zillion occasions over. Yeah, Dean feels irritated and deserted. So does Lucifer. Each of you, snap out of it.

In the meantime, again within the warehouse, Sam affords the donations. He isn’t the very best bidder. Cromarty, irritated with Astor’s high-handed remedy of him, shoots his boss. Then there’s a shootout between Scarpatti’s gangsters and Greenstreet and the Winchesters. Camilleri is wounded within the crossfire. Scarpatti and his males are worn out, Greenstreet is arrested for the carnage and Sam and Dean slip away with the injured Camilleri and the cranium.

It seems that Camilleri has executed so many good works that he even received an viewers with the Pope, who known as him “a most holy man.” On listening to this, the boys not surprisingly ask for a bit of little bit of Camilleri’s blood. He’s pleased to assist them and heads again to Malta with the cranium.

It’s utterly potential that, throughout the warehouse scene, anyone defined why numerous characters discovered it helpful to ship Sam and Dean on a wild goose chase. Nevertheless, it’s exhausting to recollect precisely what will get stated (it’s not very memorable) or determine the reasoning behind it. By the point the cranium exhibits up within the warehouse, it doesn’t actually look like any of the visitor characters wanted the Winchesters for something.

The script by Andrew Dabb & Robert Singer has some good in-jokes, and each Padalecki and Ackles appear like they’re having a great time collaborating within the massive shootout sequence. However with no supernatural parts and no highly effective character moments, “A Most Holy Man” comes off as a light-weight standalone.
