Recap: Supernatural Episode 7.07 – The Mentalists

Dean tries to flick his lighter to life, but nothing – just like with Jo. I guess he hadn’t refueled it since he almost died…. Sam, thinking fast, lights a match and throws it into the grave, lighting the bones just as Kate’s ghost rushes Dean. Her bones burn and she flames up, for one brief moment engulfing Dean in fire. When she’s gone, the boys stare at each other, breathing hard.

Dean: Nice timing.

He calls Mel and tells her that the ghost is done. Mel is with Camille and tells her she can go home, but Camille is understandably scared, so Mel invites her over. They head back to Camille’s to grab a few things…of course it happens to be right around 2am. And as any of us could have guessed, Camille’s vision starts to play out. Mel calls Dean back, who tries to calm and reassure her first. Sam grabs the phone from Dean and tells him to just drive as he barks orders at Mel.

With a voice not to be argued with (reminding me very much of his father, actually), Sam orders her to go to the kitchen and get salt. As she does, the ghost shows up – obviously it’s Margaret – and she throws the salt at the ghost. But then the ghost shows up behind Camille and Sam tells her to find some iron. She grabs an andiron from the fireplace, whacks it through the ghost, but the ghost won’t be thwarted. She shoves some dresser thing at Mel, pinning her to the wall, then proceeds to kill Camille in front of Mel. There’s a distinct sound of breaking bones. Ack.

As the boys pull up to Camille’s house (which…Mel never actually told them where she was, so…*hand wave*), Melanie is stumbling outside, crying. Dean hurries forward and kind of enfolds her in his arms. That’s pretty much where I’d want to be if I’d just seen what she had. Inside Mel’s house, the boys are waiting for her to clean up and Dean is agitated, pacing, ticked off that they’d fallen for the good sis/bad sis crap and that Kate was just trying to warn people about her “evil bitch sister.”

Sam, trying to calm him, says, “All we can do now is go stop her.”

But for Dean, that’s not enough. Mel comes down, says she’s been better, and says she needs them to leave. They’re a bit surprised by this, but understand. Mel says that the biggest thing she remembered about the ghost was that she was dead-set on Camille…and she looked like she enjoyed killing her.

The boys head to Margaret’s grave, Dean saying he felt naked digging up the grave in the daylight. Uh, yeah. I would, too. Jeeze. Sam prepares to break open the box and Dean is all, “All right, Mags. My lighter is juiced this time.”

But as Sam breaks open the box…no. body. As Dean says, they were Geraldo’d. They realize that if someone has Margaret’s bones, that’s serious binding magic.

Sam: We need to find the bones.

Dean: And the bone head.

Heh.

As they’re putting the shovels in the trunk of the Charger, Dean notices the flier for the Psychic Festival and realizes that all the lead acts are gone. If they’re all dead…who stands to gain. He heads to Mel’s house, points this fact out to her and they both realize that she would be next in line to replace her grandmother. So, Sam goes to Jimmy’s shop to find out who would have bought an ashwood altar recently (since he figures they wouldn’t be available at the Gas ‘n Sip).
