Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.18 – Party on, Garth

I had to pause the next few moments a couple of times because I was laughing. Dean drinking, knees bent to cushion the impact of the liquor on his system, gasping for breath and looking as if he could breathe fire as he finished the glass was hilarious. After a few glasses, they were pretty plastered, though they weren’t quite slurring. Yet.

Dean’s now sitting next to Sam and gestures for his brother to rewind the tape again. They watch Trevor steal the bottle of booze and see the Creepy Girl show up, then fade out and follow him from the room.

Sam (blinking with surprise): He must’ve let the…thing out of the box…and it followed him to the place with all the…thingies.

Interestingly enough, I followed that perfectly. *glances at bottle of Newcastle* Also? He sounds like me when I’m tired and literally can’t think of simple words like…chair.

Dean (eyes wide and slightly innocent looking): Yes. YES. That’s smart.

*BWAH!*

He slouches back and looks at his empty glass.

Dean (sounding slightly surprised): I’m actually kinda drunk. (Holds up circle bottle) What is this? Me likee. (Pours more) I miss these talks.

Aww. I liked that. Drunk talks with his brother. I know what you mean, Dean. Just as Dean takes another drink, Randy bursts into the office all, “What the hell?!” Dean spits the liquor back into his glass and I had to pause again so that I could blink away my laughter-tears. The look of oh, we’re so busted on his face was priceless.

Dean (to Sam): Oh, man. Turn it off turn it off turn it off.

*laughing*

Randy starts to call the cops and the boys try to stop him, reassure him, but they can’t get their words in the right order. Just then, ZAP! Garth saves the day with a taser and stuns Randy before he can say anything to the 911 operator. Yeah, that was a bit awesome. The whole scene. *is still grinning*

The boys take the box to what looks like the back of a sushi restaurant and manage to get one of the chefs to read the writing for them. They are both standing very still – the kind of still that says they’re working to not sway with the rotation of the earth – holding coffee as if it’s a lifeline, staring at the sushi chef. He’s reading the words in Japanese, then translates them to, “What you took will be taken from you…like eye for an eye….”

He glances up at them, frowning. “You with me?”

They nod in unison, but don’t speak. Looking doubtful, the chef continues to read, then suddenly shoves the box back into Sam’s arms asking where they got it from. They’re all why, what’s it say and he tells them that it talks about a Shojo – a Japanese alcohol spirit, not known for its friendliness.

Back at the hotel, Garth’s doing Tai Chi. Sorta. What I loved about this scene was that Dean saw Garth right away and stopped dead in his tracks. Sam came in and put the box down, then saw Dean, staring at him questioningly a moment before following his eye line and doing a double take at Garth. Hee.

They ask him where Randy is and Garth motions toward the hot tub. Which is good because when the boys were at the sushi restaurant I was all, whoa, wait, did they just leave that dude there? He’s going to come look for them! But…they covered their bases this time. Good writers.

Garth: He’s heavier than he looks, FYI.

Dean: You’ve got the CEO of the douchiest microbrewery in the world bound and gagged in your hot tub. Really think that’s going to end well?

Aside – Microsoft Word does not recognize the word ‘douchiest.’ Just so you know.

Also aside – the boys sobered up rather fast. Dean doesn’t surprise me, but I was impressed by Sam.
