An airport, a private jet, a package being picked up by Levi’s and the boys standing at the trunk of a…Pinto? Sam says, “Now what?” And it looks like they’re too late because Dick Roman is opening a case in his office looking gleeful. Until his glee changes to horror and then to anger as he sees a Borax bomb triggered by a cell phone timer aaannnddd BOOM!
Two hours earlier, we see that what Dean actually asked of Charlie when he said he needed one more thing from her was more time. So Charlie sends a ‘package is delayed’ email to the Levi courier peeps and the boys pull an Ocean’s Eleven caper dressing up in airport duds, swapping out the real case with their case (however, I did have to wonder a bit at their case matching the Levi case…I mean, how in the world would they have known what the Levi case looked like? Ah, well. *hand wave*)
Case appearances aside, I loved them getting into “costumes” (as Frank called them once) and playing a role, working together seamlessly as they had in seasons before. These are our brothers. *grins* Love it.
When Sam says, “Now what?” Dean responds by seeing what they ‘won’ and opening the case. It…looks like a piece of red clay, but only because they don’t have time to explore further, worried about why Charlie hasn’t shown up.
Well, Charlie hasn’t shown up because Dick Roman is at her desk asking her to show him what she found on the hard drive and she’s doing her best to play off the big “nothing” that’s now on the hard drive after she wiped it clean. Dick is impressed that she was able to break the unbreakable and she comments that “nothing is safe if you poke it long enough.” Dick is pissed (but smoothly so) that she can’t be cloned and then he gets his call that the package has arrived.
Charlie high-tails it out of there, but Dick isn’t taken out by the Borax bomb and manages to lock down the building before she makes it to the front door. Bobby is in the lobby when Dick and Charlie’s Monster Boss show up. He ghost-cracks the front doors, weakening the glass, and then turns, throwing the Monster Boss out of the way as he makes his way toward Dick.
Unfortunately – and purely unintentionally – his toss of Monster Boss sends the Levi directly into Charlie, crashing her against the wall and breaking her arm. Bobby doesn’t notice, though. His focus is solely on Dick. The boys show back up at the office, front-rolling through the weakened glass (pretty cool stunt, that) and pause as they both see Dick.
Charlie yells to Dean that Monster Boss is one of them and Dean throws Borax on him. Sam picks up Charlie and they both pause again, staring with utter hatred at Dick – who is trying to pick himself up off the floor from Bobby’s hit.
Dick (to Charlie): You’re hanging with the wrong crowd, kiddo.
Bobby throws Dick again and Dick laughs, roaring a challenge to Bobby to show himself. Bobby holds him down and Dean and Sam get away with Charlie in the…Pinto.
Dean: Charlie? Talk to us. You okay?
Charlie: No. Why didn’t you kill him?
Sam: We can’t. Yet. But we will.
Charlie: The really evil ones always need a special sword.
She passes out then, but that got me thinking about whatever that red clay thingy was…could that be the “special sword” that could defeat Levi’s? Dick was really, really pissed when he found out the boys had it. Mad enough to um, well…eat the messenger.
And then I got to thinking – and I know this is TOTALLY implausible and won’t happen – but wouldn’t it be cool if the “special sword” (assuming that potentially throw-away line has any special meaning) was Michael’s Sword? Just…y’know. Sayin’.
