They walk into the sheriff’s office and Dean introduces himself to the Sheriff, Deputy, and Judge as Marshall Eastwood (complete with silver badge). Clint Eastwood. The theme to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly plays in the background as he says this. And he says it with as much weight as Marty McFly in Back to the Future III, but just like in that movie, he’s met with a trio of blank stares. Hee.
He then introduces Sam as, “Walker. He’s a…Texas Ranger.”
HA! Sam gives him A Look, then says that they’re looking for a man. The Sheriff taunts them about their clothes being too clean.
Dean (still pouting a bit): It’s dirtier than it looks.
Sam tells them they need to find Samuel Colt. The Sheriff tells them to ask Elkins over at the saloon—who has been there long than God.
HA! Elkins! I loved it! *grins at Show*
Dean steps into the saloon with a big grin that very quickly fades as he looks around at the old man passed out on a table, the tired-looking saloon girls sitting on or near a silent piano, and the lone bartender wiping down a tiny bar.
Dean: This is not awesome.
Aw, Dean. *pets him*
Sam’s lips fold down into a consoling frown and he pats his brother on the back before moving them toward the bartender. The bartender played “Un-Bob” in the (rather short-lived) TV Show Lonesome Dove. Hey, I told you I watched a lot of westerns.
Dean: I’ll have your top shelf whiskey.
Bartender: I only got one shelf.
Dean: That’ll do fine. He’ll have a sarsaparilla.
Sam = *eye-roll*
Turns out the bartender is Elkins. HA! Still love it. He tells the boys that Samuel Colt passed through there about four years ago and was building a railroad stop in the middle of nowhere. The boys have a quick aside determining that it’s the Devils Gate. Just then, a female voice yoo-hoo’s them and they turn to see a blonde saloon girl, who Elkins introduces as Darla, his best girl. Darla approaches Dean and we see that she’s sporting some rather unfortunate rotting teeth and an absolutely horrible sore along the whole right side of her mouth.
Talk about authenticity.
As Dean is doing his best to disappear into the floor, the Judge comes up and calls Darla off as he has a standing date with her. Lucky man.
Dean: It’s more germier than I pictured.
He slings his whiskey back and very nearly implodes, gasping, “It’s like gasoline!” Sam just grins and sips his drink saying, “Sarsaparilla ain’t half bad.” HA! Atta boy, Sammy.
Upstairs, Darla and the judge are…well…you know and out of nowhere, a man in black appears, laying his hand on the judge as Darla scrambles free, screaming. His hand lights the judge on fire and then immediately burns him up and turns him to ash. For a moment I completely forgot we were looking for a Phoenix and wondered if this guy was an Angel – since we’d seen angels do that same thing in episodes past.
But, I should have figured the Phoenix would have been human. It worked better in this case, but it’s also standard Supernatural M.O. Silly Gaelic.
The boys burst into the room seeing Darla cowering in the corner and the ashes on the bed and are all buzzzahh….
