Recap: Supernatural S7 Finale, “Survival of the Fittest”

Now, here I wanted them to demand that he cut himself and bleed in front of them. I mean, they got the other two fresh from the source. But…they went a different direction.

Crowley: Certainly. (to Meg) Meg, I’m going to scoop you up, take you home, and roast you ‘till you’re jerky.

Meg looks terrified and Cas starts forward in protest.

Crowley: But…not yet. Cas can have you for now. Hilariously, it seems that he’d be upset for losing you and the boys need Cas to get Dick. Don’t they?

Cas (looking away): I don’t fight anymore.

Crowley: C’mon…given the particularities of your enemy, sadly, you’re vital.

He tosses the blood, which Sam thankfully catches, and is gone, leaving the foursome to stare at each other. Elsewhere, Housekeeper!Bobby is coming out of a hardware/key store with some wrapped up supplies – one that looks like a big knife. Under his/her arm is newspaper with a picture of Dick on the cover. He/She walks into a random hotel parking lot and looks in the back of a blue pick-up truck, then reaches for a tire iron. The minute he/she touches it, Bobby’s zapped out of the housekeeper’s body. Iron. Duh.

The woman begs Bobby’s ghost to let her go, but Bobby sees the picture of Dick on the cover of the paper with the headline “Man of the Year” and gets enraged again, then…”re-possesses” her. So…this is not boding well for Bobby.

Back at Sucracorp, Dick and Susan are walking down a hall, both with their iPhones out, talking about meetings and powerpoints and my brain started hurting because that’s what I do all day.

Dick: Susan, do I look like a fool?

Susan: Not in that particular body, no.

*laugh*

Dick rattles off his 3 rules for contract negotiation: bring breath mints, get it in writing, and have a plan for when they screw you. He tells her to go to the freezer for what she rightly guesses is “the arm.” Meanwhile, Kevin is still locked up in some random room in the building – no mention of if his mom is still alive and whole – and a guy in a lab coat opens the door and brings in a pretty, but rather stoned, blonde girl named Polly. She’s told to sit, so sit she does. And eats Twizzlers. Random.

Back at the cabin, the boys are reading through the comp book.

Dean: We only get one shot. This thing doesn’t have a reload.

Sam (holding a vial of blood): You think Crowley’s, uh….

Dean: Double-crossing us?

Sam: Yeah.

Dean: You gotta figure who he wants dead more – us or Dick.

Sam (grimly): Depends on what Dick offered.

Poor Canada. Or…actually lucky Canada, really.

Sam mixes the three bloods into a bowl and since there are no magic words or anything, Dean tells him to pour it over the bone – though I did wonder why they didn’t pour it over the pointy end…? They wait. And…nothing.

Dean: Where’s all the thunder and lightning?

Sam: Maybe it worked?

Dean: Awesome.

Just then Cas shows up and startles them both. He brings them sandwiches that he – quite literally – made from all natural resources. He hands one to Dean saying they need their strength.

Sam: Cas, why was Crowley so certain that you needed to come with us?

Cas: Crowley’s wrong. I’ll be waiting right here. Please, take this sandwich as a gesture of solidarity.

Sam takes the plate and Dean just looks at his sandwich. *sad*

Back at Sucracorp, Susan brings Dick “the arm” – a frozen piece of the real Dick Roman. Then she says the delegates are on their way and Dick tells her to send the security detail. Back in the random office room, Lab Guy brings a dress for Polly and tells her to get dressed. Which she stands up and immediately starts to do by unbuttoning the blouse she was currently wearing. Kevin’s all, wait, what, why? But she’s too out of it to care. He sees a bobby pin in the dress bag. Good eye, kid. The delegates show up and gather into a conference room.

Lab Guy comes to get Polly – who is now wearing a simple grey dress – and leaves a burger – probably a turducken – for Kevin…no dice there, though, because Kevin’s a vegan (which…does that mean he hasn’t eaten anything since he was taken? Yikes!).  Lab Guy and Polly leave and Kevin immediately starts to pick the lock with a bobby pin. In the conference room, Dick’s talking to the delegates, saying the last time they were all in the same room it was inside “that angel” and encourages them to eat up because the “sushi is made of fresh orphan.” Gah.

He reveals their Master Plan (insert evil laugh here) about sectioning up the country and eating away. Also, they’ve created Additive 3.0. Enter Polly who stands obediently, even taking off her dress to stand in her bra and underwear because he told her to and she’s too stoned to care. He injects her with the additive and she starts foaming at the mouth, then collapses and dies. The additive is designed to breed out the things they don’t want: low body mass, vertically challenged, hemophilia, IQ > 150…..

They’re putting it in non-dairy creamer and multi-vitamins and shipping to LA tomorrow. Not. Cool.

Kevin overhears and tries to get to an exit, but is stopped by Susan.

Susan: Why are you out of your cage, mouse?
