Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.18 – Party on, Garth

The camera shots in this scene were playing with my head. Each time they showed Garth, I was all tense that Creepy Girl was going to show up in the background because it was a wide shot with Garth off to the right rather than centered. They did that a few times, actually, and I was tense every time. SPN has made me suspicious of friggin’ camera angles. *laugh*

Garth (giggling): You want to hear a joke?

Sam (at the same time): This is something interesting….

Garth is full-on laughing and the boys are looking at him, incredulous and…slightly irritated, in Dean’s case.

Sam: Are you drunk?!

Garth: I just drank a whole beer. Of course I’m drunk.

Well, the dude weighs like 80 pounds soaken wet. He probably gets drunk rinsing with mouthwash. He asks for another beer, but Dean shoots him down.

Dean: No. Coffee for you, Tara Reid.

Hee.

Garth: Coffee with Kahlua?

Ha!

That earns him a Dean glare and the boys continue to talk through the case – musing that maybe Dale is an angry spirit because he was forced out of the business. After all, his wife is suing the company so…? Just then, the police scanner calls all units to the McMann house. Oops. Garth pushes back from the counter, slip-falling from his stool.

Garth: Let’s go check it!

Sam: You two go. I’m gonna visit the widow.

Dean = glare

Sam = cute lil’bro grin

Me = *giggle*

At the McMann house, Garth tells Dean that he didn’t get any EMF reading around the house – and he used both his and Dean’s since his was broken. Dean frowns at that, then says he thinks the little girl – Tessa – knows something but she isn’t talking. Garth says he’ll “take a run at her” because his “special lady” has twins. Dean follows behind muttering a perplexed, “Special lady?”

Garth sits down in front of Tessa (after they ask Jim and Marie if they can talk with her…not sure if she was Jim’s daughter or granddaughter) and asks if she will tell him what happened. She shakes her head. So, Garth pulls out…a sock puppet. Named Mr. Fizzles. I thought Dean was going to implode right there. He can barely keep himself from grabbing Mr. Fizzles and losing it in the drier.

The funniest part of this scene was how the camera focused on Mr. Fizzles as Garth talked for it – and not on Garth – and the fact that every time Dean protested, Mr. Fizzles would look over at Garth. The sock puppet worked, and they find out from Tessa that not only did a ‘monster with sharp claws’ fill the blonde woman (who may or may not have been her mother), but that Tessa ‘drank a grown up drink’ with alcohol in it and was terrified she was going to be arrested.

And there’s your alcohol safety lesson for the night, kids.
