Recap: Supernatural Episode 6.13, Unforgiven

Meanwhile, Brenna is walking into her house with groceries and Sam scares the bejeezus out of her. She demands to know what happened to Cougar Lady and Sam is all, Cougar Lady is missing? Brenna is staring at him like he’s evil…and yet she allows him to stay in the house and agrees to help him with files from the case a year ago. I honestly don’t get why she trusted him so much. I think they could have done a little better job selling us on that point.

Anyway, not important. While she’s upstairs getting the files Sam asked for, Sam has another flashback of he and Gramps sitting in the Dobbs’ living room talking about the life of a hunter. Gramps has had enough beers to wax sentimental and says that when Mary came along, the constant travel became impossible, but Mary was worth it. He goes to the garage to get more beer and Brenna says that it’s nice Sam has his Grandpa.

Sam says with that cold-eye Robo glare that he and Gramps have more of a business relationship and that family only slows you down. And ouch.

Back in the now, Brenna returns and catches Sam mid-memory, having to call his name a couple of times to get him to snap out of it. They start to look into the box of evidence and Sam flashes to a creepy-looking woman he’s fighting, and then again to he and Gramps figuring out that some evidence was web-like material from something called an Arachni (I think).

Basically, I got the impression it was a humanoid version of Shelob, spinning its web around its prey to immobilize, incapacitate, and paralyze so that it could feed (or in this case, mate) later.

Brenna tells Sam that Roy was a good man. “I’ve made peace that he’s dead. I just want to know what happened.”

Sam answers rather helplessly, “I’m sure he died a hero.”

He asks to borrow the evidence and leaves the house, pausing on the porch to check his voice mail. He hears Dean’s message and sees off to the side of the porch a big glob of cobwebs. He sets the box down and goes to investigate, peering at the web with trepidation. A hand touches his shoulder and he whirls around pulling his gun. It’s Dean.

Sam: I almost shot you! Again! What the hell!

Dean figured he’d come and talk to Brenna and is pissed because he told Sam to stay home. He grabs the box of evidence and they leave.
