Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.16 – Out With the Old

In the aftermath of the fight, Dean is moving slow, Sam’s still holding the sword, and George is healing form his Borax facial. Dean puts Bicklesbee’s head in a bag and puts the bag in the safe. Sam holds George at sword point. They tell Scott that Big Mouths don’t like to leave loose ends and caution him to run and not look back until he gets somewhere he doesn’t understand the language.

Poor Scott. All he did was open a safe.

The boys want to know why the heck George helped them. George? Wants to eat Bicklesbee. Um…eww. But also, let this be a lesson to all those bitchy bosses out there – karma may come back and eat you.

Dean: You want to…eat…your boss?

George: You got a better way to make her stay dead?

Good point, but…yeah, no. Not happening.

George (with an oh, by the way tone): You’re welcome for saving you. (looks at Dean) ‘Course she ripped into your ass like a Christmas present.

Dean just looks at him with what I call his “try it and see what happens” look. Where his face is blank and his eyes appear emotionless, but all around him danger is shimmering. *toe curl*

He demands to know what Dick is doing in Wisconsin (where Bobby’s coordinates were) and George tells him they’re freaking out about the wrong stuff. They need to look at the Big Picture. Tells them to get their heads down and stay down.

Dean: Listen to me you gooey son of a bitch. You’re gonne tell us what you’re building here, or I’m gonna wash your mouth out with soap.

George (nervous): I was hoping we could play nice. But if you must know, this is going to be a research center. We’re going to cure cancer. Because we’re only here to help.

Now, for dramatic effect and to allow the impact of what George just said to hit us, I get why we cut to commercial at that point. BUT. They never show us what the boys did with George. One has to assume they beheaded him – why leave a Big Mouth standing? But it was…loose. *frowns*

Next thing we see, Dean’s finishing packing up all the cursed stuff into the Uhaul muttering about monsters curing cancer.

And why is that? Well, we’re a food supply to them, right? Who wants to eat bad food? This is why (good) farmers and ranchers take care of the cows, pigs, and chickens. The Levis want to find out how to take care of us, heal us, keep us healthy, so they can eat us. Seems simple enough. Totally creepy and horrific, but simple.

They are heading to Frank’s and Dean tells Sam he’s going to sleep the whole way there. Sam’s doubtful, of course, but Dean says (with this adorable, big brother half-grin) that they’ll find a soft rock station; that always knocks Sam right out.

  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!
