Dean goes first, exposing his arm, tensing up, groaning low as the charge burns his arm.
Dean: Son of a…. Awesome.
Sam burns himself next, then leans on the post with one hand to catch his breath and his balance as Dean takes the wire and moves to Rufus. Rufus tries to call time out—revealing he has a pace maker—but Dean’s like, no outs. He burns Rufus’ arm while the hunter mutters, “dammit, dammit, dammit!”
It’s not in Rufus. So, Rufus takes the wire and moves for Bobby—who backs up. Bobby’s like, “It’s not in me, so go ahead.” Rufus counters with, “Then stop backing up, whatever you are.”
Bobby: I’m Bobby!
Rufus: Bobby my ass.
And without warning—not!Bobby stabs Rufus in the chest. I knew it was going to happen and I still gasped. It was just so—gah! Y’know? One of those, no, wait, maybe if I rewind it can un-happen! I was really very bummed that Rufus died. I get that they did it for story impact, and to complete the flow of the theme, but I wish there’d been another way. I’m tired of them losing people close to them. *is sad*
Sam cries out Bobby’s name and catches Rufus. Dean moves around to flank Bobby. Sam says that there are two of them and one of him and they’re able to grab Bobby and knock him out. They duct tape him to a chair and for the first time, the creepy thing inside of him takes over and speaks up. Until this moment, it seemed like the possessed people were basically themselves—with the exception that they’d gone buckets of crazy. They talked in their normal voice, knew the facts they should know, all of it.
But as Dean worked over the creature inside Bobby—zapping him once in awhile to keep it in line—it turned downright creepy.
Dean (bending over taped up Bobby): Hey there, you little herpy.
Sam (leaning against a table off to the side): Why do you keep talking about herpes? (See that’s why I thought he said ‘herpy’ and not ‘harpy’—but I can’t be sure.)
Dean (glancing at his brother, distracted and disturbed): What? I don’t. Shut up. (pause) Shut up.
Creepy!Bobby Monster Thing claims that they can’t kill it without killing Bobby, too, and it knows how much they love this guy. Dean wants to know what it is, but the thing says there’s no name for it—it’s new (chalk one up for Bobby, there). Apparently Eve made it herself. Then he goes all, “by the time she’s done with you there will be more creatures than humans and you’ll be living in cages and we’ll eat your young and blah blah blah.”
Sam: So what’s your deal in all of this?
Creepy!Bobby: She has a message for you. You’re all gonna die. She’s here and she’s pissed and there’s nothing but pain from here on out.
Dean’s like, here’s my response: ZAP.
Because, seriously. Does this Eve chick think words like that are really going to freak them out? They’ve dealt with Lucifer for crying out loud. They’ve been to Hell and seen atrocities people should never see. They’ve battled the first demon and the yellow-eyed-demon and juuuuuust about every monster Eve ever made. If she wanted to scare them, she chose the wrong tactic. All she did was cut into them by taking a friend and make them mad.
And a mad Winchester is a dangerous Winchester.
