[S5E19] Hammer Of The Gods
In a conference room, gods from many religions are gathered. Baldur sets some ground rules for their behavior, and he and Kali outline how they have gathered everyone together to address the fact that the Judeo-Christain Apocalypse as started by Lucifer threatens the Earth. They have captured Sam and Dean, who they know are vessels, to use as bargaining chips.
Gabriel explains to Sam and Dean he is there to save them, and that he once had a relationship with Kali, and doesn't want her or the other gods killed. Gabriel tells Sam and Dean that Kali has bound Sam and Dean to her with a blood spell. He goes to her room, pretending to be romantic in an attempt to retrieve the boys' blood, but she realizes his ruse and draws his blood, binding Gabriel to her.
In front of the other gods, Kali reveals that she has discovered that Gabriel is an archangel, and she uses what she thinks is an angel blade to kill him. Sam and Dean then agree they will help the gods call Lucifer, if the humans they are holding can be freed. While Dean is seeing the people to safety, he finds Gabriel hiding in the Impala - the blade Kali found was a fake. He tells Dean to get their blood from Kali so they can escape. Dean suspects he cares for the other gods, but Gabriel is unable or unwilling to use his blade to kill Lucifer.
Lucifer arrives and kills all of the gods, and is about to kill Kali when Gabriel intervenes, telling Lucifer that he has no legitimate grievance, being merely jealous that humanity replaced him in God's affections. Gabriel says he is not on Lucifer's side, or Michael's, but that he has come to agree with God: that humanity is better than them. Gabriel then tries to kill Lucifer with the angel blade, but Lucifer turns it on him and kills Gabriel.
Sam and Dean are kidnapped by a group of gods, including Kali (guest star Rekha Sharma), Ganesh (guest star Keith Blackman Dallas) and Bladur (guest star Adam Croasdell) and held hostage in a small hotel. The gods want to use Sam and Dean as bargaining chips to stop the Apocalypse, but Gabriel (guest star Richard Speight, Jr.) shows up and warns them that if Lucifer (guest star Mark Pellegrino) finds them he will kill them all. Unfortunately, one of the gods turns on the rest and Lucifer appears.
Mercury enters with a rolling cart upon which there is a covered platter surrounded by meat. "Dinner is served," he says, uncovering the platter to reveal a severed head covered in goo. The gods and spirits applaud, and a spotlight captures Sam and Dean. The man with Kali (Baldur) says, "Our guests of honor have arrived."
They seat Sam and Dean in front of the group, all of whom now sit at a long banquet table. Baldur calls the meeting to order by tapping his fork on a champagne glass. Baldur says he never thought he'd see this day, with so many gods under one roof. Baldur lays down a few ground rules. No slaughtering each other. Easy on the wrath. Oh, and try to leave the local virgins alone, they're trying to keep a low profile.
Downstairs, Sam and Dean sneak into the kitchen and are forced to hide and watch as Zao Shen and other gods sacrifice a human on the hotel's front desk. When they get to the kitchen, Sam is about to pick the lock in the freezer door when Zao Shen grabs him from behind and starts to strangle him with one hand. Dean appears behind Zao Shen and runs him through with a wood beam.
He points at Mercury and tells him they're worse than humans, they're worse than demons. And yet, Lucifer says, they claim to be gods. He leans his head to one side and twists his finger, twisting Mercury's neck at the same time. "And they call me prideful," Lucifer sneers.
The Winchesters take refuge in a motel that's way too swanky for its surroundings; turns out that the motel is a trap created by various gods (that's right, plural) who want to stop the Apocalypse by using Sam and Dean as bait.
For the series so far = At least 387 humans (of which 6 were witches), 61 demons, 33 ghosts, 19 zombies, 13 gods, 11 vampires, 10 angels, 9 hellhounds, 6 changelings, 3 shapeshifters, 2 ghouls, 2 werewolves, 2 dogs, 1 crocotta, 1 djinn, 1 rakshasa, 1 rawhead, 1 reaper, 1 rugaru, 1 shtriga, 1 siren, 1 wendigo, 1 whore of Babylon, and 1 wraith.
However, he is there with news: The Winchesters are in the hotel. Kali binds the Winchesters to them. When Gabriel tries to unbind them, Kali realizes and binds him to her, too. Kali learns that Gabriel is an archangel and reveals the truth to the other gods.
There are three Norse gods, two Hindu deities, one Vodun deity, one Chinese deity, and one Ancient Greek deity. The larger number of Scandinavian gods is probably a conscious decision given that they are more well known in the USA than the other deities. You could also argue that, given that the bulk of the show is in the MidWest, that the Scandinavian gods might even have more of a sway.
Zao Shen and Baron Samedi are the gods I know the least about, and are pretty irrelevant to the episode overall. Zao Shen, a Chinese deity, gets killed by the Winchesters, after all. Baron Samedi also gets killed by Lucifer. Neither of these two got to exhibit any cool abilities or even character development. Hermes displays some super speed, but turns out to betray the gods to Lucifer.

Another ''French Mistake'' fan, Pellegrino's second pick is our No. 24. In ''Hammer of the Gods,'' Sam and Dean find themselves at a hotel filled with gods (think Odin and Kali) who've gathered to discuss that pesky Judeo-Christian apocalypse. But the real kicker is the final showdown of the episode, when fan favorite Gabriel meets his demise at Lucifer's hands. Then again, is Gabriel really dead 59ce067264
