A year ago, Sam and Gramps figured out what the baddie was and that it was going after men in their mid-30’s. Sam was too young, Gramps too old, so Sam suggests they use Roy as bait, only they don’t tell Roy that’s what they’re doing. Gramps is totally not cool with it—it’s not how he’s used to working. RoboSam is basically, welcome to the future.
So, they call Roy, watch as he comes to the place they tell him, watch as the SpiderWoman attacks him, and completely miss the opportunity to catch and kill her, allowing her to drag Roy off. Gramps is panicked, but Sam is like, it’s cool, I tagged Roy’s GPS as a Plan B.
Gramps: You’re about as cold as they come.
So, y’know, if Gramps realized this a year ago…I gotta wonder why he didn’t seek out Dean on his own. He was obviously a little scared of his youngest grandson…did he not wonder what Dean was like? Why he wasn’t hunting? Did he simply accept whatever RoboSam told him? Seriously, made me wonder.
The other thing it had me thinking is that Gramps really never met Sam. Not the real Sam. So, because he chose poorly and decided to work with a demon, he missed out on knowing two amazing men and is now on Dean’s Hit List. That just basically sucks, as far as family goes.
Anyway, still in the flashback, Sam and Gramps head to that barn-like place from the beginning of the episode and find all of the missing men wrapped in webs. Roy is one of them and Sam pulls the web from his face, asking him where she is. The SpiderWoman attacks Sam—that’s when he cuts his arm—and then attacks Gramps. Sam cuts her head off. Done and done. Gramps is reassuring Roy that they’ll get help, but Sam coldly says not to bother—they’re all done for. He points his gun at Roy. Roy’s begging him not to do it, but Sam’s like, you’re a hero. BAM!
He systematically shoots the rest, then says that they can’t leave the bodies and tells Gramps to get the gasoline. Back once more in the now, our Sam is looking at Dean, horrified, and says he knows what happened. Dean looks significantly worried, but it’s unclear as to if he’s worried about what Sam’s going to tell him or the fact that he’s remembered so much.
