Recap: Supernatural Episode 7.08 – Season 7, Time For A Wedding

At the gym where their High School Reunion is to take place, Becky shows up and Guy has her sitting down. Offers her a drink, and wants to talk price before he gives her the elixir.

Becky: But…I thought we were besties.

Guy: You’re so pathetic it actually loops back around again to cute.

She offers to pay with a personal check, but he’s actually more interested in her soul. His eyes flash red and she’s all, gulp, crossroads demon. Guy’s like, got it in one. Ah-ha, so that was the reason for the flinch when he met Sam. It wasn’t attraction or jealousy, it was fear. Because Becky’s new hubs was Sam Freakin’ Winchester who, Becky rightly points out, would gank his ass if he knew Guy was a CRD sitting at this little ol’ table with little ol’ Becky.

Becky: YOU killed those people.

Guy: For legal reasons, let’s just say they had unfortunate accidents.

Becky: So, what, I hand over my soul and the next day a piano falls on my head?

Guy says he wouldn’t do that and that she’s special – so special, in fact, Guy’s willing to offer her 25 years in exchange for her soul and Sam will love her for the rest of her life. Becky asks for the drink he offered earlier.

Back at Becky’s, Dean and Garth break in, only to realize the place is deserted. Garth finds her most recent Tweet about the romantic honeymoon, and Dean, who is scoping out the place and glaring at wedding pictures, finds a pic of younger Becky in front of a hunting cabin, holding up her first big fish. Garth helpfully tells Dean he doesn’t like fish – dead eyes. Dean gives him a um, okay, thanks for that glance. At this point, we’re basically left to deduce that Dean figures out this is where they are, but I’ll get to that in a sec.

Becky returns to the cabin and Sam is still gagged. (Seriously? He couldn’t have shoved that out with his tongue?) Lying down next to him on the bed, putting her head on his chest, Becky starts talking. Throughout it, Sam is grunting through the gag, but there’s no telling what he’s saying.

Becky: This is not how I planned to spend my reunion. I was going to show you off. Not that anyone knows who you are. Supernatural’s not exactly popular. (*laugh!* Okay, that was funny.) But you’re tall…and nice…and they’d all think I was happy.

Oh, Becky. You make me sad, girl.

Becky: I know you don’t love me. I’m a loser. I think that’s why I love you. (Sam grunts something there, and that we can pretty much figure out is a what?) Not that you’re a loser, but you have that whole character arch about being a freak and I can relate. (*laugh* OMG, this is just funny and sad at the same time…I think I probably said a good, oh, 12-14 times in responses to my last ramble how much I could relate to Dean {which equals the funn part}…but at the same time, her utter loss at confessing this unreality is really just…sad.) The only place people understood me was the message boards. They were grumpy and over-literal, but we shared a common bond.

Okay, was that last bit written by Sera? I both appreciate the good natured poking fun and tire of the 4th wall being stepped through. I’ll just whine for a teensy bit and then let it go, but…I watch to escape. Not to be reminded that I’m watching a TV Show and it’s not real. I know that, thanks. Supernatural is pretty unique in this respect, and that’s fine. Most TV Shows seem to understand that they’re out there for escape and allow you to indulge. I mean, you don’t ever see the The Walking Dead do anything like this, y’know? And /rant.

Her speech was actually a bit more sad and poignant of her character’s predicament than it was annoying that she was drawing attention to our reality. But I still had that reaction, so…there you go.

Anyway, Chuck dumped her, she’s feeling adrift, and she just wants someone to love her for her. *rubs heart* Sam mumbles something and she finally removes his gag so that he can tell her that if she wants someone to love her for her, she should try not drugging them. She pulls out the elixir and says that she wants him and this was the only way. Sam, looking slightly panicked rather than just annoyed, says that she’s better than this and Becky’s not so sure.
