Recap: Supernatural Episode, 6.09: Clap Your Hands If You Believe

While Sam is getting the low-down on the faeries, Dean is speed-walking-while-trying-to-look-cool away from Red Cap. The dude is really freaking him out—Dean’s expressions are reminiscent of Yellow Fever. And I can’t say I blame him, really. I wanted him to turn and take the guy on, but he’s dealing with a total unknown and he was abducted by faeries and he’s totally off his game at the moment. He continues to try to keep ahead and get away from Red Cap, heading down an alley toward another cross street and just as he turns a corner, Red Cap vanishes and a true Little Person is there.

Dean doesn’t see this, though, and ducks behind a wall. When the Little Person emerges from the alley, Dean jumps him yelling, “I gotcha, faerie!” He wrestles the Little Person to the ground, only realizing that it’s not Red Cap when a little girl cries in horror, “Daddy!”

Dean lets him go and groans a heartfelt, “Oh, no,” before rolling over and grinning at the gathering crowd saying, “I’m just kidding!”

Sam and Brennan come out of the bar just in time to see Dean being pushed into a police car—hands cuffed behind him. Sam’s like, what do I do now??

Dean: Fight the faeries! You fight them! FIGHT THE FAERIES!

*cackles*

Oh, I love Freaked Out Desperate Dean, too.

At the tiny jail, the cop is trying to figure out what kind of a hate crime this was, exactly.

Cop: If he were a normal sized homosexual, would that have been a problem?

Dean: It’s not a hate crime. I don’t hate any-sized…gay guys.

Cop: As it happens, he’s not gay. He’s the Assistant District Attorney for Tipton County.

Fabulous. You sure can pick ‘em, Dean. Although, until the cop said that, I wasn’t sure if Red Cap had morphed into the Little Person or what…. I guess Red Cap just vanished??

Dean: Well, he did pretty good for himself considering…these tough economic times.

*cough* *cough*

Cop: Son, you are all kinds of messed up.

Cop leaves and the lights go out. Took me a moment to realize it wasn’t aahhh! Lights are out! But rather the jail just being closed down for the night.

Sam and Brennan enter Brennan’s office and Sam has a shotgun. Brennan can see the elves and says that they’re all down for the count—the cream hits the like tequila. Well…if that’s the case? Why did Brennan wait so long to slip them all a Mickey? Maybe he just needed the extra help? *shrugs*

Anyway, Brennan gets the book out of the safe and starts to read the reversal spell. Aside—wonder what language that was. Elvin? Sounded like it could have almost been Gaelic, actually.

Out of nowhere, someone stabs Brennan in the back, the weapon protruding from his chest and he falls down, dead. It’s Wayne! The UFO dude! I cannot believe I didn’t see that coming. Talk about being off your game. Wayne is the leprechaun that appeared to Brennan and he killed the watch maker because he was going back on his deal. Sam’s like, well, too bad for you—your cover’s blown.

Wayne begs to differ.

Wayne: Brennan’s dead. Your brother is marked—he belongs to us now. And you can only see me if I let you.

With that—poof—he’s gone. Sam’s like, bring it. You have to come at me eventually and I have good reflexes. Wayne appears again and says that Sam isn’t like the rest of them—he’s missing a certain center. The human soul gives off a perfume to his kind, and he can tell Sam’s is missing. He says he can get Sam’s soul back. Sam’s like, it’s in a cage…with the Devil.

Wayne: Your Devil, not mine.

Sam calls bullshit.

Sam: No freakin’ way a leprechaun can do what angels can’t.

Wayne mocks the angels—I missed what he said, exactly, but the gist was that he could get Sam’s soul back if Sam were willing to make a deal.

Sam: You’re my blue faerie? You can make me a real boy?

Wayne: If you wish upon a star.

Sam: I got a wish.

BLAM! He shoots the leprechaun point-blank.

Wayne: Iron. Painful. Not a deal breaker.

BLAM! Okay, now Wayne is pissed. And Sam gets the brunt of it.
