Then we fade out and come back into focus with Becky sitting at one of the reunion tables, the party long-since over, sipping whiskey and telling Guy – who is approaching from behind – that it’s been a weird night, and she’s “in.” *SCREECHES TO A HALT*
FLAG ON THE WRITING PLAY. Don’t throw things at me for this, but this is where I have to say, seriously, writers? It’s not so much that we miss The Plan, but we get this dramatic moment where Becky is about to dose Sam again and then…next thing we know the gang’s all here? We don’t see her let him go? Or see if Dean got to the cabin to find him tied up? Or any of that? I get that they only have like 45 mins or whatever to tell the story and the big deal of the whole episode, it seemed to me, was what happened in the last 15 minutes, but still. They expected us to take a giant leap there and while I like a good demon double-cross surprise as much as the next guy, this manner of scene-jumping was a cop out in my book. *exhales* Okay. Moving on.
Becky stands, facing Guy, asking if they have to seal the deal with a kiss and Guy’s like pucker up. Instead, Becky flicks on Dean’s lighter, drops it and traps Guy in the center of a Devil’s Trap. As he stares, dumbfounded that she got him, Dean, Garth, and Sam emerge from the shadows and Becky practically dances over to Sam, ecstatically proclaiming, “I did it! Just like we said! I am awesome! I’ll…be just over here.”
Sam gives her a stay still, stay quiet look as Dean advances on Guy – who turns into a fandemon for a moment, asking for Dean’s autograph. It’s honestly hard to tell if he’s sarcastic or serious, but Dean offers to carve it on his spleen. He’s such a giver, our boy. Without much provocation, Guy spills the beans about there being a loophole in the 10 year deal. He doesn’t get his hands dirty, of course, but that’s why it pays to have a good intern.
Hoodie Man suddenly shows up and power-shoves all three guys hard across the room, knocking the knife out of Dean’s hand. Hoodie Man breaks the Devil’s Trap while Guy is yelling, what time did I ask you to be here?! Dean brings his head up painfully. Sam’s out. Garth is – who knows. Dean struggles upright, and suddenly Guy is right there. Dean splashes Holy Water in his face, scalding him, and tries to start an exorcism, but Guy grabs him by the throat and slams him against the wall, strangling him.
