Rufus looks at the power cord of Bobby’s saw and teases him about dumpster diving—foreshadowing the fact that the frayed cord was going to come into play. Bobby, looking remorseful, stands on the opposite side of the table as Rufus plugs in the saw and says he needs to say something.
I will admit, I was anxious about Rufus and that saw. See how they played with my head?
Bobby: Omaha was my fault. I shoulda listened to you.
Rufus (half laughing): We’ve had this conversation.
Bobby: I never said I’m sorry. You lost her because of me.
Rufus (still laughing a little): I said we’ve had this conversation. (Dead serious) You can blab all day and it wouldn’t change a thing Bobby.
Bobby looks almost bereft.
Rufus: I will never forgive you for what happened. You got that? Never. So, change the subject.
Ouch. And…wow. Here’s an example of how it could have gone with Dean and Sam. Bobby and Rufus were partners. Trusted each other like brothers, it would seem. And Bobby made a mistake. And Rufus never forgave him. And they’ve been able to work together and give each other crap, but there’s a canyon between them that neither could ever cross or bridge.
Had Sam not apologized or had Dean not allowed it—had he not said immediately and often, “It wasn’t you,” they could have deteriorated into hunters who meet up when the fit hits the shan and nothing else. Instead, they’re back to having wordless conversations and watching each other’s backs. *whew*
Rufus begins to cut into Samuel’s forehead and suddenly Samuel’s EYES FREAKING OPEN!
He sits up and shoves both Rufus and Bobby away. He breaks the table and uses one of the legs to shove through the door as a lock. Outside, the boys hear the sound and turn to see Samuel standing, framed by the window. With twin wtf expressions, they gape as Rufus attacks Samuel, only to be thrown back again.
Dean cuts Sam loose from the make-shift cuffs and they go to work on the door. Bobby tries to grab Samuel and he gets thrown to the side. He grabs Samuel again and shoves him against the outlet with the frayed cored plugged in. Samuel gets electrocuted just as Dean is able to kick the door open. A totally disgusting, fat, black worm wriggles out of Samuel’s ear and slops onto the floor.
Dean goes to Rufus and Sam to Bobby and they help the older, rattled hunters to their feet. They try to figure out how Samuel got “double dead” and Dean tells them about seeing the worm—only now they don’t know who it’s in. Could be any of them. However, they do know that electricity “tickles” it. So, Sam rigs up a live wire plugged into the socket and one-by-one they allow themselves to get zapped.
