Recap: Supernatural, Episode 6.22 – The Man Who Knew Too Much

They go to the lot and he immediately spies the Impala, knowing for sure that it’s his. She tells him that she doesn’t feel right about him leaving like this and that she has a bad feeling that whatever he’s looking for he’s not going to like what he finds. As she’s talking, Sam hears or senses something and glances to his right. In a flash he knocks the girl to the ground just before a bullet shatters the passenger side window of the Impala.

The girl is like, what the hell?!

Sam stands up and sees…himself. Looking like RoboSam. Holding a gun on them. Staring in horror at himself, he hears the girl’s voice calling Sam! Sammy! and in another series of flashes we are pulled from Sam’s consciousness to see Dean sitting next to the cot in the middle of the Panic Room at Bobby’s house, calling him Sammy, trying to get him to wake up.

The Panic Room is now painted with angel protection charms. How sad is it that they’re in a room that protects them from both angels and demons. Tattoos against possession, ribs branded to keep from being tracked…they are well and truly alone. No allies except Bobby. Thank goodness they still have Bobby.

Dean: Sammy, snap out of it. Please.

He looks exhausted. On the radio, the Rolling Stones are singing about “Playing with Fire.” He gets up and starts to pace. Bobby comes in and asks if there’s been any change.

Dean: Can’t just sit here, Bobby. I’ve got to help him. Dreamscape his noggin’…SOMETHING.

Bobby: You know what Cas did. The dam inside your brother is gone and all hell is spilling loose. We don’t know what’s going on in there.

Dean: I don’t care! We have got to do SOMETHING.

I kinda wish they had dreamscaped his noggin. I liked that Sam had to put himself back together again so that we could close the rather messy chapter they started with that whole wall notion in the first place, but it would have been interesting to see the brothers working together. But, that’s not how it went.

Bobby: And we will! But right now we’ve got 16 hours until they pop Purgatory. I’m down one man, I don’t want to be down two.

Dean: We’ve got no line on Crowley, no line on Cas, Balty’s MIA…. All we’ve got is Sam going through…whatever the Hell this is.

As a total materialistic aside? I love Dean in that shirt. It’s my favorite of his limited wardrobe.

Bobby (pouring Dean a drink): This is exactly what Cas wants – for you to fall to pieces. Let’s try to think of what Sam would want.

Dean takes the drink and says, “Find Cas, Bobby. Find him now.”
