Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.05, Shut Up Dr. Phil

Meanwhile, The LeviHitman is on the road, listening to “See the Funny Little Clown,” by Bobby Goldsboro with its ironic, lyrics: They all think he’s laughing, But I know he’s really crying all the while, How his heart is aching, How his heart is breaking on the inside, But he keeps laughing on the outside, No one knows, no one knows….

Oblivious to the fact that the Levi’s are closing in on them, the boys head over to Don Stark’s house (at first I thought it was his office, but apparently his office is in his house). And here the Buffy fans get to see the first of their old alums in the episode. I haven’t seen anything James Marsters has been in since Angel ended, so seeing him without his bleached-blond hair and his cockney accent was interesting. It almost sounded as though his American accent was fake, which is hilarious considering the British accent was.

As they’re talking with Don, his pretty, blonde perky assistant Jenny Kline stops in all, I made you cupcakes. Dean’s both eying her and sizing up Don as Don winks at Jenny all, you’re too good to me. Jenny leaves, Sam makes an excuse to go to the restroom (giving him opportunity to scope out the rest of the house) and Dean continues to question Don. Sam finds a bedroom with a half empty (ginormous) closet and said closet, he finds a broken heel, a necklace and a box of oldish papers with Cyrillic symbols on it.

Arriving back in the office, Don is showing off his accolades (including an autograph from Donald Trump) to Dean saying, “Success breeds fierce competition, but in the end everyone respects and admires me.”

Humble, ain’tcha?

Sam interjects, “Including your wife?”

Dean glances at Sam, picks up the thread, not missing a beat. They tell Don they’d heard he and his wife were separated but Don tries to shrug it off. Sam wants to know how Don would describe their “issues.” Hemming and hawing, Don says it was one of those…vague…hard to define….

Dean: She caught you cheating, huh?

Don: I’m a people person. I admire dynamic, confident women.

Sam scoffs until Don admits to having a little “thing” with a business associate. Sarcastically the boys riff on the term, “thing,” as if it was like…a shoe. Or a waffle iron. Don admits it might have been more than a “thing.”

Dean: If we were to guess that the “business associate” was Wendy Goodman, would we win a weekend trip to Maui?

Don says the affair was over long before the accident. The boys aren’t sure it was an accident, but they are sure he needs to apologize to his wife. Grovel if necessary. As they leave, they notice that the plants are dead around the house as well.

Dean: Don admires Wendy, biblically. Wendy dies weird. Scorned wife is into the dark stuff. Don is in the dark…it’s like Bewitched. Don is Darrin only he doesn’t know it. Lotta laughs until you cheat on your wife.

Sam (with a totally amused grin): A Bewitched reference. Really?

Dean: Dude. Nicole Kidman was in the remake. Red head. Hellllo.

Hee. I always thought he’d be into red heads. *grins* Although…I coulda sworn Samantha was blonde, but…I never saw the remake.

Sam: If she’s strong enough, just being pissed off is enough to send some pretty bad vibes their way.

Dean: Kill off everything around them. Just by PMSing.. That’s not creepy at all.

Dean calls Bobby (with a funny interlude of It’s Dean….Winchester! Very funny.) and tells him that they’re dealing with a witch. Apparently Bobby schooled Dean in the ways of old sages and finding ways to deal with witches. *grins*
