Meanwhile, Meg finishes off the last of the HHs and is covered in gray blood (weird). She starts to head down the hall in the direction the guys ran off to only to be knocked down by Demon!Christian who takes the Angel Sword.
The guys are pacing around in their cells.
Dean: Sam? I’m standing in pee.
Sam: Consider yourself lucky.
Gramps opens the little window in Dean’s cell.
Dean: You want forgiveness find a priest.
Gramps: I just want you to understand.
Okay, so in retrospect, I do have to wonder what he was going to say here. I can understand the choice to bring your child back rather than your spouse, I can. And I also can understand the selfish need to not live with out them–it’s part of what drove Dean to make his deal. But it just seems like there might be something…more. Not sure what, exactly. Maybe I’m looking too deep. Again.
Dean: I understand that you’re a liar.
I’ve been SAYING!
Dean: You talk about putting blood first? You sound like my Dad. Difference is? He actually did.
You know that’s right.
Gramps: I am putting blood first. Mary’s my daughter. You sold out your own mother! It was her or Sam and you chose Sam, plain and simple.
How does he figure that, I wonder? What event is he talking about, exactly? Dean was never in a position to save Mary, not once. He was either four years old, or prevented by angel interference.
Dean: That is such crap. You want to know what happened? You chose a demon over your own grandsons.
Guess choosing demons over family runs in the family, too.
Gramps: I don’t even know what Sam is. And you’re a stranger. Tell me, who are you supposed to be to me?
Oh, that’s rich! Coming from the man who cornered Dean in Lisa’s kitchen and slathered on the “family comes first” guilt 14 layers thick.
And if I might have a shallow moment? Dean’s face framed in that cell window, with his jaw pulled tight and his eyes lit up with righteous fury looked four kinds of gorgeous.
Dean: I’ll tell you who I am. I’m the guy you never want to see again. ‘Cause I’ll make it out of here, trust me. Next time you see me, I’ll be there to kill you.
Gramps: Don’t think there’s gonna be a next time.
Dean: Whatever gets you through the night.
I couldn’t help but think about the fact that Sam can hear all of this. I wonder what he was thinking as he listened to his Grandfather accuse his brother of putting him first—over everyone, even their mother—and his brother promise (not threaten, promise) to kill his Grandfather. No amount of therapy would be enough were these real guys.
Gramps steps away and in moments two demons show up and haul Dean out of his cell, past Gramps, and down the hall. Elsewhere, Meg is strapped down, naked (with prudently placed leather straps) to a cross-shaped metal torture table and Demon!Christian is working her over, though he never really asks her any questions and she doesn’t tell him anything. The main thing we get is that she’s scared.
Sam is pacing in his cell, then he crouches against a wall, thinking…next thing you know, he bites his own wrist and I have to say I was totally confused as to what he was up to. Also? OUCH.
Dean gets tossed into what looks like a communal shower room for the eternally damned: bathtub filled with browned, dried blood and leftover intestines, blood all over the walls, a half-eaten body on the shower floor. Two ghouls are thrown in there with him and he makes a Shawshank Redemption quip before his face falls as he realizes he’s in Really Big Trouble.
