She finds him a few rooms away, standing alone and scowling. Stalking up to him, she just belts out her question about Samuel really trying to kill him.
Dean: Yes. He didn’t even blink. That’s the guy you’re rolling with.
Gwen: He didn’t tell me. I didn’t know.
Dean: I know. There’s something I need to tell you, too.
And without warning—or, for that matter, blinking—he raises his gun and shoots her dead-center in the chest. BAM! I did not see that coming. I think my mind did a little fizz for a moment as I was like, is she not who we thought? How did he know she was bad? The fact that he was possessed didn’t occur to me until Sam said it because we didn’t see anything crawl into him like with TD. But then, I guess the moment with TD was Eve basically “giving birth” to the monster and from that point, how it got into and out of people was its prerogative.
The rest of them come running at the sound of the gunshot and Rufus immediately starts CPR on Gwen (with rather some heartbreaking imploring to “come on, girl!” as he compresses her chest). Dean’s gone; Sam immediately searches the room for him, returning to find out that Gwen is dead. He says that whatever got into those other guys must’ve gotten into Dean.
One leap I had is that no one thought that someone else could have been in the cannery—I mean, each of their hunting parties got in without the other knowing. They immediately went to it was Dean. Which is what they needed to think for the sake of the story, so…okay. But, still.
Bobby (to Samuel): I’m sorry. If you care.
Samuel: Screw you, I care.
Uh-huh. You sure sold me, man. *rolls eyes*
Bobby tells Rufus to help Samuel put Gwen somewhere while he and Sam lock down the place and look for Dean.
Bobby: We better find Dean before he finds us.
Sam (to Samuel): We’re gonna find him alive, Samuel. Or I’m gonna put a bullet in your head.
I loved that. Do not mess with my brother.
Samuel just glares at Sam. So, Sam and Bobby padlock the doors, cutting off escape routes. Rufus and Samuel put Gwen in an empty room and Samuel loads a gun with Rufus watching. Sam and Bobby search; Samuel and Rufus search. A rat scares the bejeezus out of Sam and Bobby, but no Dean. Sam pulls out his phone and scrolls down to Dean’s name—actually it’s just under “D” and for whatever weird fangirl reason, I thought that was endearing.
Rufus hears the phone (and it’s a regular ring—not a ringtone/song…not sure why). Dean rolls around the edge of a post and draws on Rufus.
Rufus: Dean! Put that damn thing down.
Samuel comes around the corner and points his gun at Dean. Dean shifts his aim to Samuel.
Dean: You’re the least of my worries right now, Rufus.
Sam and Bobby come in, pointing their guns—Bobby at Rufus, Sam at Samuel.
Sam (in an instinctive cry of whoa, wait, let’s think about what we’re doing here): Hey! Hey! Hey!
Dean: I am not in the mood! I just had a 12 inch herpy (or did he say harpy?) crawl out of my ear.
Dean (his face tense and a bit freaked out): I woke up on the ground in time to see a giant…Khan worm crawl out of my friggin’ ear and into a vent. You tell me what’s going on!
Samuel: You killed Gwen, that’s what’s going on.
