Recap: Supernatural Episode 6.14 – Mannequin 3: The Reckoning

ANYWAY. The boys are once more suited up and apparently manage to smooth-talk and badge-flash their way into the crime scene as the coroner peeps are zipping up the body bag and local law is still milling about. The EMF starts humming around a collection of mannequin parts. Sam remembers it doing the same thing back in the science lab where Dean was “molesting the anatomy mannequin.”

Dean: What exactly are you accusing me of?

*grins*

Sam says he’s just pointing out that it’s big coincidence.

Dean: You’re kidding. You’re not kidding. Possessed dolls? Like Chucky? That’s just…(he eyes the faceless mannequin and his expression is adorable)…freakin’ creepy.

Sam argues that ghosts possess people, why can’t they possess mannequins? Dean’s like, yeah, but ghosts don’t jump county lines — why the lab and now the factory, huh? Sam’s like…you got me.

Dean: So…we dig. Over there. I don’t like the way Kim Cattrell is looking at me.

Hee!

So, while they’re digging, and finding out that the Security Guard was also squeaky clean, they find that the Factory where the guard was killed has a black mark on its past. A girl named Rose Brown went missing over a year ago and is presumed dead. She’s survived by her sister, Isabelle. So, they’re thinking vengeful spirit — though as I write this I find myself wondering why the spirit waited a year to seek revenge. I don’t think there was any catalyst for triggering the killings…unless I missed it.

Still, who says supernatural baddies have to be logical, right?

Anyway, Dean’s phone rings again and it’s Lisa. Sam orders him to answer it, which Dean does, reluctantly. Turns out it’s not Lisa — it’s Ben. He sounds so much older — he has that pseudo-rough voice of a kid around 13 or 14, and it kinda made me sad how grown-up-yet-little-boy he sounded. He tells Dean that something is wrong with his mom. That it’s bad. She won’t come to the phone and she barely gets out of bed.

Dean tells Ben he’ll call back in five minutes. He doesn’t want to leave Sam — says it’s life and death and he’s not talking about the vengeful spirit. Sam says he can handle it for 24 hours. He practically shoves Dean into the Impala and makes him go. Says he had to face his past over the last year, now Dean does, too.

*whimper*
