Recap: Supernatural Episode 6.19 – Mommy Dearest

Sam: Why’d she let us in…or out?

Bobby: We just go in? We won’t know who’s human or who’s her!

Dean (looked stone-faced and determined): One way to draw her out. Me and Sam will go in.

Bobby: Dean!

Dean: We don’t get a shot off, you two better.

Sam is saying nothing, his silence voicing his agreement.

Bobby: That’s the plan?

Dean: Yeah. Pretty much.

The boys head in and Bobby and Cas glance at each other.

Bobby: Well, at least it ain’t complicated.

It struck me how often these four have been in a do-or-die, scare-the-pee-out-of-yourself situation. This moment wasn’t unlike Swan Song just before Sam drank 40 bagillion gallons of demon blood. These four are a good team, really. And my heart is already aching for what the previews showed us about next week, and what we found out this week about Cas. He’s not only going to crumble the foursome, he’s going to destroy his friend, shatter trust, and I don’t know what it’s going to do to him, personally. *rubs heart*

The boys sit down at the counter. Sam pulls out his video phone and subtly scans the room, whispering, “Crap. Crap. Crap.”

Dean: Starships?

Sam: Yep.

Dean: Is there anyone in this diner who is not a flesh eating monster?

Sam: Me and you.

Dean: Okay, well, let’s get out of here.

Sam: Shall we?

A waitress puts two plates full of fried stuff in front of them and Sam tries to wave it off until she calls him by name. They actually look at her for the first time and just…stop and stare for a moment.

Sam: Eve.

Eve: Pleasure.

Dean: Why don’t we step outside to chat?

Eve: Why? This is private.

A few Starships get up to close all of the blinds. Outside, Bobby and Cas are all uh-oh. Inside, one of the Starships takes the bag of guns and Eve checks it.

Eve: Phoenix ash. I’m impressed. Bet you had to go a long way for that.

Dean: You have no idea.

She tells her minion to destroy the weapon, then smiles that cool, creepy smile at the boys who look tense enough they could spit diamonds. She tells them she’s not here to fight.

Dean: No, just to rally every freak on the planet. Bring on Kahn worms and half-assed spidermen and dragons. Really, sister? Dragons?

Eve: So I dusted off some of the old classics. I needed help.

Sam: With what? Tearing apart the planet?

She leans across the counter toward Sam and Dean’s shoulders straighten in instinctive protection.

Eve: I never wanted that. Not at first. I liked the natural order. My children kill some of you; you kill some of them.

Dean: What changed?

Eve: My children started getting kidnapped and tortured. Even my first born. A mother defends her children.
