Meanwhile, suited-up Sam is heading into the police station when he’s arrested by the cop RoboSam had beat to a pulp a year ago. The cop throws him behind bars and demands to know where the bodies are—that families want to bury their loved ones. Sam’s all, I don’t know. The cop is all, whatever—you leave town soaked in blood and bash my brains in to do it and you expect me to believe that?
Sam says he doesn’t remember anything. The cop is like, sell that one to the judge.
Sam = freaked out. He sits on the bed in the jail and time passes. It’s night. And I couldn’t figure out where the hell Dean was, to be honest. Anyway, another dark-haired woman walks in and demands to know what happened to her husband—Roy Dobbs, the sheriff. Sam’s like, I don’t know.
The woman calls him “Sam” and says she knows what he does. With that he flashes to a moment where the woman is sitting next to an African American man in a sheriff’s uniform in a kitchen with Sam and Gramps. They are coming clean about the existence of monsters and the woman says that it’s impossible. RoboSam says—very coldly—that he wants to know what she has to do with any of this.
The sheriff says she’s his wife and whatever they say to him, they say to her.
Back with our Sam, he’s realizing who she is and she tells him that her husband vanished and then Sam vanished, so what was she supposed to think? Sam tells her something happened to him and he doesn’t remember anything.
Woman: What is this, Days of Our Lives?
Sam says he doesn’t know what happened, but if she knows him, then she knows he can find out. She introduces herself as Brenna Dobbs. (Brenna. Hee.) She trusts him (for some reason) and lets him out, telling him he’ll have to tie her up to make it look like a jailbreak.
Elsewhere, the Cougar Lady is drinking boxed wine like it’s going out of style, runs out, heads down to the basement to get more (where, of course, the light is out). She makes her way down the shadowed basement stairs and a hand shoots out, trips her, sending her tumbling head-first down the stairs. She rolls over, a shadow looms, and she screams. COMMERCIAL!
Sam is back at the abandoned house listening to a police scanner (which I guess he stole when he broke out of jail?) and looking at notes. He hears a noise outside, pulls is gun, hides behind the door. Dean comes in and Sam points his gun before he realizes it’s his brother.
Dean: How’s it feel to be a fugitive again? Hate to say I told you so.
Sam: You love to say I told you so.
Dean tells Sam that he and Nicole knew each other. In the biblical sense. They hear about another missing person on the scanner and Dean says he’ll go and tells Sam twice to stay put. Of course, the minute he hears the Impala roar off, Sam exits, stage left. Dean is at Cougar Lady’s house talking to her hubs and figures out that this whole hunt–the multiple text messages, the missing girls that all slept with RoboSam at one time or another, all of it–has been a trap for Sam. He calls his brother but gets voicemail. Grrr. Argh.
