they had mjolnior?!!?
In the week-before-last's ep, there was an auction of supernatural items (held by Plutus, god of wealth). One was Mjolnir. It was bought by a guy (he offered one of Ymir's fingers, was turned down, he threw in 5/8th of a virgin [holding up a bloody sack], offer accepted), and later the guy, Sam & Dean were facing down some demons. Mjolnir was knocked from guy's hands, Sam picked it up, smote demons, then asked the guy where he got 5/8th of a virgin from. Guy smiled and shrugged, and Sam smote him with Mjolnir. Next time we saw Sam, he was not holding the hammer, it was nowhere to be seen.
(The whole "only wielded by someone worthy" restriction on Mjolnir was created by Marvel comics; in the original myths, Mjolnir's just an exceptional weapon forged by dwarves and its handle was shortened by Loki.)
According to the Supernatural wiki, the guy who bought Mjolnir was Vili, one of Odin's brothers. Vili was portrayed by Alex Diakun
Aside from the "Pagan gods are all bloody murderers/monsters" thing, the ep was also insulting when Crowley bid the Moon for another Tablet with The Word of God on it.
Dean: You're bidding the moon?
Crowley: Yeah, I claimed it for Hell. You think a man named "Buzz" gets to go into space without making a deal?
(This Tablet's the MacGuffin for the season: it's all about demons, including how to open gates to hell, and how to close them. All of them. Permanently.)
