Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.16 – Out With the Old

Next we see Bicklesbee and George trying once more to convince the hardware store man to sell – which he continues to resist because his store is his life. So, Bicklesbee kills him, revealing to us that they’re Levis and making George create a “died when his cigar set his bed on fire” scenario to cover up the man’s murder and not draw attention to them. Also we find out that she went through four assistants before George. She’s even awful for a Levi. It’s that bad.

She makes George go across town to get a very specific coffee order and he looks like he’s about to have an aneurism as he agrees.

Elsewhere, Dean is in a café looking up the real estate agency online and Sam is driving a pick-up across town toward him. Sam is not doing well at all. He is fighting falling asleep at the wheel, doing all the usual things — cold air, loud music. Dean calls him and tells him about the real estate deal and Sam’s out of it. Dean is like, dude…. Sam tells him that sleep deprivation is torture, then hangs up. Uh-oh. And also? I agree.

Dean – helpless to help Sam when he has no idea where he is – tries to get into the real estate website but is blocked by a firewall…so, he calls Frank.

Dean: Don’t mean to double-dip in your crazy sauce, but I think I found something.

Frank: My silence is your cue, Dean.

Me: *eyeroll* Really, Frank? Is it that important to be cantankerous about everything?

Dean tells him about the site and asks him to crack it. Meanwhile, Sam is falling asleep at the wheel, drifting across the dividing line, and almost getting himself smushed by another semi. Not cool. I mean, I’m all for pushing on and doing the job when you don’t have any other choice, but let’s not be stupid about it. When you haven’t slept for umpteen hours/days, driving at night alone is not a smart idea!

Meanwhile, George the put-upon Levi is trying to get Bicklesbitch her coffee at the Java hut and the barista puts two pumps in when he asked for one. He wants a new one cup. Barista says, “why don’t you eat me,” and George looks all-too intrigued by that idea. As he’s walking away, though, he hears Sam step up and order a “triple red-eye.”

So, he recognizes Sam by his voice. That’s…interesting.

George calls Bicklesbee and is all ‘yay, I get to eat a Winchester!’ She tells him to get back to the office where she lectures him on chain of command and says he’s one move away from a bibbing. Meanwhile, Frank calls Dean – giving Dean the chance to be sarcastic right back at him (touche!) – and tells him that the website, GeoThrive, is part of Dick Roman’s Empire.

Frank warns Dean to get the hell outta Dodge, but Dean’s like, people are dying here and can’t just leave, letting that happen. Sam pulls up and stumbles inside the café (literally, stumbles) where Dean is working. Dean tells him about the Leviathan problem and Sam’s vaguely like, man that sucks. He’s totally not engaged. *feels sorry for him*

Dean: You hearing me?

Sam (shaking himself): Yeah. Yeah, sorry.

Dean (worry bridging the gap between getting the job done and taking care of Sam): Enough of this insomnia crap. You need to crash. I’ll keep working. You find a motel and sleep.

Sam: Doesn’t matter where I go. Lucifer will not shut up.

Dean (frowning): Even now?

Sam: He’s singing “Stairway to Heaven” right now.

Dean (after a pause): Good song.

Sam (shaking his head, eyes looking bruised): Not 50 times in a row.

Just then Scott calls Sam, all panicked, saying he looked into one of his mom’s mirrors and now he wants to rip his face off. The boys are like, okay, okay, calm down, we’re on our way. Back at the antique store, though, we see that the evil real estate duo are with Scott, have forced him to make that call, and are now duct taping him to a chair while talking about exactly how to kill him. Bicklesbee decides that George should become Scott so that no one is the wiser and Dick Roman doesn’t get upset that they’re drawing attention to themselves.

  1. I’d like to see more of George in the future. Him helping Sam and Dean tells me that there’s a lot of drama within the ranks of the Leviathans. And that could be good story telling.

    • Well, the fact that we didn’t actually see them kill George leads to the possibility of his return when they truly are able to go after the Leviathans. That, or, the mere fact that there was dissidence within the ranks could resurface. I agree that it would be good storytelling to show that the Levis aren’t all Stepford and have some independent thinkers out there.

      Thanks for reading!
