Recap: Supernatural Episode 6.14 – Mannequin 3: The Reckoning

So, while Dean is driving to…uh…I can’t remember where the Braeden’s live. Michigan? Anyway, it’s a drive, that’s for sure. While he’s doing that, Sam interviews Isabelle the sister and finds out that they were very close. Rose was kind, giving, had a big heart. She was also shy and quiet and people gave her a hard time about that.

Isabelle: She did more for me than anyone ever could.

*sniff*

Sam sees a picture album on the coffee table and takes a look — he sees a big group photo that turned out to be a company Christmas party. Rose and Isabelle are both there…as is Dead Janitor and Dead Security Guard. Only, y’know, before they were dead.

It turns out the factory, Salzman & Sons, is the common link among the dead guys, even though that doesn’t solve the problem of why a ghost would hit someone at the college and at the factory when they’re in different towns. So, Sam goes to the factory and starts interviewing everyone about Rose in a montage-like fashion. We don’t hear anything that anyone says until he gets to this youngish guy with shoulder-length dark hair and a neatly trimmed beard. He’s acting shifty and suspicious about Sam’s “routine questions,” and flinches away from the picture of Rose Brown that Sam shows him.

Sam calls him Johnny — and the link was made. This was the guy that the Dead Security Guard called out to. Johnny says he saw Rose around but doesn’t know anything. Sam wants to know why he’s so nervous, which Johnny shiftily deflects. Sam lets him go, but gives him his card to call if he remembers anything. Which kinda cracks me up a bit that he has business cards. With a way to reach him. I guess they don’t have to worry about the police tracking them down or anything since they’re dead now about 3 times over, but it just seems a little dangerous (to me) for them to have business cards with fake names and real phone numbers floating around the country.

As Johnny leaves, Sam shifts his eyes in thought. I think I might have a little RoboSam hangover because there was something in his expression that harkened back to when it seemed like soul-free Sam was experiencing an emotion. It confused me back then because I thought he wasn’t supposed to feel anything (as he claimed) and this time it just struck me…I don’t know if I can put my finger on what it was. Just…struck me.
