Recap: Supernatural Episode 6.14 – Mannequin 3: The Reckoning

Back in New Jersey, we see a place called McOwens Irish Pub with some shiny, happy people inside — including Isabelle. Love Hurts is playing on the jukebox. Johnny walks in, but instead of going into the pub, he heads upstairs to what appears to be his apartment.

And this is where creepy just becomes weird. I have to admit, I didn’t get the motivation for Johnny to have a mannequin in his apartment — in his bed, in sexy lingerie — that he talks to as if it were his girlfriend. That, honestly, felt like a contrived way to get a mannequin in place to kill Johnny. But, be that as it may, Johnny’s telling his mannequin girlfriend to “pack her things” (WTH??) because they’re leaving when the mannequin suddenly turns its head and looks at him.

So, Johnny is dead — strangled by a piece of the mannequin’s nightie — and Sam is at the apartment (with the cops) looking around. He sees the mannequin sitting demurely on the couch and calls Dean’s “other, other cell” and leaves a message that it’s not over. He goes to Isabelle’s house and is looking through what little bit of Rose’s stuff she had left, since she gave all Rose’s clothes to Goodwill. In talking to her and looking at the stuff, Sam realizes that Isabelle goes to school at Great Falls Jr. College. So, she was at the college, the factory, and the pub — making her the link to the ghost. Sam kinda freaks her out a bit by asking what she has of Rose’s that she’s wearing. She can’t think of anything at first, but then pauses.

When she was 16, Rose saved her life by giving her a kidney. Giving depth to her earlier statement that Rose did for her what no one else has.

Sam tells Isabelle to come with him and they meet Dean in a parking lot somewhere in town. It’s night, so no one is around. Dean gets out and meets Sam half-way, asking, “Is that the girl with the haunted kidney?”
