Summary: Lucifer is best at two things: Manipulation and Deceit. Castiel hasn't been Castiel for a very long time, and with nothing left to hold onto, Dean spirals down into a pit of torture and degradation. When the Devil kicks Castiel out of Jimmy's body, he weaves a world of lies around Dean's life that is so carefully interwoven with reality, no one is the wiser. Dean kills, thrills, and eventually strings himself out on Heaven's equivalent of crack cocaine, and at the end of this long journey of royally screwing himself over, Lucifer, in possession of Castiel's vessel, spirits Dean away for a little "quality time" together. Add in flashbacks of Lucifer's time in Heaven, the slow dissension between two angelic brothers, and The End Of The Apocalypse, and we've got ourselves a mighty fine time.
