Recap: Supernatural Episode 7.02, Hello Cruel World

At the hospital, Edgar and two LeviTeens hook up with LeviDoc and he reveals his plan: take over a hospital and use it as a smorgasbord. Edgar replies that this is, “exactly what the boss asked for.” Uh-oh.

Sam’s at Bobby’s–alone–and is timing himself reassembling guns. He hears a car and Dean suddenly bursts in, grabs Sam’s beer, says he followed the swimmers to town, needs Sam to “keep the engine running and wait at the back door.” And, well, keep Satan from messing with his presets. He’s moving too fast, speaking to cavalierly. I just…knew it wasn’t Dean the minute he grabbed the beer can. He was…off.

Bobby gets Sherriff Mills out of the hospital, smiling when she calls him her hero, but then goes back in to find her roomie in the morgue and see just what the heck is going on.

In the Impala, Dean’s grilling Sam, but his questions are harsh, quick, running sideways somehow. He says Sam should get help, but Sam doesn’t want a bunch of pills, saying they’ll figure something else out. Dean reminds him of Martin, and how he took a nosedive (I can’t remember…did we know Martin?). Sam’s like, I’m not Martin.

Dean: No, but you’re crazy. That don’t wash off. You get that, right? You’re never gonna be okay, Sam.

And then I knew for sure he wasn’t Dean. Which made me all kinds of nervous. The real Dean gets to Bobby’s finds it empty, and curses, the look son of a bitch, not now on his face plain as day.

Sam and Fake Dean show up at what looks like an office building, but the minute they step inside, it turns into an empty warehouse-looking place and Fake Dean, who was busy mocking Sam for ‘dealing’ turns into Hallucifer. My heart dropped to my toes, even though I knew it was coming.

Hallucifer: Your world is whatever I want it to be.

Sam is both horrified and terrified. He’s herrified. He starts shooting at Hallucifer, but of course, the image just pops away and shows up someplace else. Knowing that Dean would be looking for Sam, my stomach was in knots, afraid that Dean would walk in and Sam would shoot him not realizing it was Real Dean. Hallucifer tries to convince Sam that he needs to shoot himself….

And we shift back to Bobby who has found the roomie, realizing that her insides have been removed. LeviDoc shows up and tells Bobby he knows him.

LeviDoc: We saw you through the angel’s eyes.

Oh, man. What a horrible thought. Great line, horrible thought. *misses Cas*

Bobby shoots it and suddenly the thing’s mouth turns into a version of the Blade III vamps with the mega-teeth and the wide opening and the gah…. Bobby high-tails it outta there and we head to Real Dean as he’s using Sam’s GPS to find him. He gets to the warehouse thingy, muttering, “This can’t be good.”

I was curled up in a ball at this point, ya’ll. I even grabbed my pillow. Do you realize how long its been since I gripped my pillow while watching?

Dean shows up and at the same time, Hallucifer turns into Dean. Sam pulls the gun, pointing it at his brother.

I have goosebumps while thinking about this whole scene. Sam – tearful, confused, crazed, frantic. Dean – desperate, determined, heartbroken, pained. And they WENT THERE. They allowed Dean to bring up Hell. To recognize it, remember it, use it to bring Sam around. And the look in his eyes as he did…as he talked about torture and pain and as he fought to bring his brother back…. Good Lord. The way that guy uses his eyes. He makes you want to watch him even if he’s in shadow.

It was one of the best brother scenes we’ve had in a long time.
