After the title card, we’re at Bobby’s. The boys are standing in front of his desk while Bobby is pointing at locations on a map and telling them he’s been getting blasts from hunters all week.
– Nest of vamps
– Werewolf dance party
– Shifters (where two hunters were killed)
– Ghouls, ghouls
– Ghoul/wraith smorgasbord
Dean notices the path is running down I-80.
Dean: It’s like a Sherman’s March Monster Mash.
Sam: Where to?”
Bobby circles a point on the map where TD beat his family to death. It is always interesting to me when these types of things stand out to them like “their kind of weird.” Horrible things happen like that all the time, all over the world. People are capable of unimaginable cruelty just as they are capable of inconceivable love and forgiveness. But…that’s what kinda led me to the possessed-serial-killers-story idea. Not that I think that’s actually possible, but after nearly six years of immersion into the make-believe world of the supernatural where our heroes see a man going ballistic and killing his family as a potential trigger for their kind of weird…it just gets me thinking.
So, Dean, Sam, and Bobby suit up and head to the jail to talk to TD. The man is completely distraught, his face haggard, his eyes haunted. He doesn’t remember a thing—he woke up in his truck at work (Starlight Cannery) and didn’t know how he got there. He went home and found his worst nightmare. *rubs heart* Poor guy. Last thing he remembered was giving a kid a ride from the truck stop, but figured she took off at some point.
The guys manage to bluff their way into using a police computer (which, if they can do that, one wonders why they were so awful acting like actors acting like them last week…maybe it was camera fear…*grins*) and Sam starts looking up film footage from the truck stop security cameras from the night of the murders.
Dean: Demon possession or ghosts? I thought this was a monster thing.
Sam finds TD, then they see the girl. Dean’s all, “Hello!” until she turns to face the camera for a brief moment and her face goes all gnarly and the video gets creases across it. It wasn’t much worse than the wraith in Sam, Interrupted or the changelings in The Kids Are Alright, but it creeps them out.
Dean: What the hell is that?
Sam (nervously): Bobby?
Bobby: Maybe the vamps and ghouls are coming in for Mother’s Day.
Dean moves around the desk to face the other two saying they have zero intel on how to gank the MoA.
Dean: What do we do, throw salt and hope?
Bobby: No, we turn tail and run! We’re in over our heads.
Dean says they need real info if they should run into this gal, but before they can go any farther down this line of thinking, the cops in the station are on the move. Turns out some guy went postal down at the cannery—same place TD worked. Bobby says he’ll go check it out and tells the boys to finish up there.
