Recap: Supernatural Episode 12 — Like a Virgin

They head out in the Impala, working the job. During the drive, with a smooth classic rock song that I can’t remember now and didn’t write down (bad Gaelic) playing in the background, Sam glances over and says to Dean, “You never even tried to have a life.” He reminds Dean of his promise.

Dean: “What makes you think I didn’t?”

Sam: “Look at you. You’re exactly the same.”

We only see Dean in profile, but a muscle jumps in his jaw and the skin around his eyes tightens. I know my heart thudded a bit painfully as he took in those words, knowing the Hell he’d been through and the Hell he couldn’t tell Sam about. He gets really quiet for a minute, then says, “I was with them for a year. Lisa and Ben.”

Sam asks what happened and Dean just tells him it didn’t work out. Then he turns the music up. Guh.

They reach Plane Girl Whose Name I Can’t Remember’s house all suited up. They want to ask Plane Girl’s sister some questions and she resists at first. But it’s OUR Sam now, remember? With genuine sincerity, he appeals to her and gets them in. Dean watches this, absorbing the difference with a small, happy grin tucked into the corner of his cheek.

They talk to Plane Girl’s sister about how she loved Stan and how she only went up in that plane because she didn’t want to seem uninterested. But now they didn’t even have a body to bury. Later, back at the motel, Dean brings in food from what looks like a burger joint and Sam is at the laptop researching other girls that also went missing.

I can’t remember how he knew there were other mysteriously missing girls—probably Bobby. But it doesn’t matter. It was enough to look like their kind of weird. Hence the hunt. Anyway, Sam tells Dean that the other two missing girls, “baked cookies for the Lord.”

Dean: “Is that code?”

HA! *wants to ruffle his adorable hair*

Sam tells him that the girls had Promise Rings, were in the church choir, had bake sales for the church, all of that. Dean says he has another way to get info and takes out Plane Girl’s diary.

Sam (incredulous): “Did you steal that from her room?!”

Dean: “I love that you even ask me that.”

*secret smile*

Dean has a theory about virgins—between the Promise Rings and 22-year-old Plane Girl’s pink bedroom with stuffed animals, he thinks that they’re all virgins. Sam’s doubtful, so Dean reads an excerpt from Plane Girl’s diary.

Dean: “I have decided I am going to give Stan my most precious gift.” *insert not-so-subtle arm flourish*

Sam (looking totally uncomfortable): “That sounded…really creepy coming out of your mouth.”

Dean: “I think I delivered it.”

HA!

Sam: “Who would want virgins?”

Dean: “You got me. I prefer ladies with experience.”

*smirk*
