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

So, deciding they need to investigate Maggie, the wife, the brothers find out where she’s living, Sam playing lookout with the Impala on the side of the road next to a “sold” sign. He puts the hood up and stands out in the rain, waiting, while Dean sneaks into the house, checking out each room until he finds a Witchy Alter of Shame in the bedroom closet, sees all three of the dead peeps x’d out in blood, Jenny looking to be next. Muttering, “Don, keep it in your pants, man,” Dean grabs Jenny’s pic.

Just then, outside, a sports car (with Stark 2 vanity plates) pulls up into the driveway. Maggie gets out. Sam tries to call Dean, but the circuits are busy. Sam scurries over, flashes his badge and tries to stall her. Maggie barely glances at the badge, tells him of course she’ll talk to him, but come back in 30 mins because she’s in the middle of an emergency, and then she starts to head into the house. Sam is practically vibrating with nervousness and reaches out to jar the car, setting off the alarm. Inside, Dean hears, heads down the stairs. Maggie silences the alarm with an irritated look at Sam.

Sam: Uhhh…restless leg syndrome.

Dean hides, slipping out the door after Maggie gets inside. Joining up with Sam, he mutters, “Spoiler alert, Jenny’s next.”

They know it’s not going to take long for Maggie to realize the pic is missing, so they high-tail it over to Jenny…and the most inventive, gruesome almost-death yet. Maggie does find the missing pic, but that doesn’t stop her for long. She chants Romanian, pricks her fingers, smears it over a spare pic of Jenny that she apparently had…while Jenny is in cupcake making heaven. She must really love cupcakes, man. Or…perhaps I should say she loved them. Because when she blissfully bites into one iced confection, her lips are covered in blood and she looks that the little cake in her hand and sees a still beating tiny heart. I mean Oh. My. God. She begins to choke, then vomit blood into the sink just as the boys burst in.

Dean pulls her away from the sink while Sam looks frantically for the coin. Jenny is choking, Dean holding her, and I couldn’t help but wonder if he was having some flashbacks to the ‘knives inside me’ moment he’d had previously with witches when Ruby had to save him from the hex bag. I know I did…. Sam finds the coin, shoots it, and Jenny can breathe.

In the aftermath, Jenny is sitting, shell-shocked, on her couch while the boys watch her completely freak out.

Jenny: There were tiny hearts in my cupcakes. That’s never happened before. HEARTS IN MY CUPCAKES! HEARTS IN MY CUPCAKES!

I couldn’t help it. Maybe it was the lack of sleep. Maybe it was the pre-caffeine viewing. Maybe I just have a twisted sense of humor sometimes, but that made me laugh. Cackle, even.

Dean: Should I slug her?

Sam: Give it a sec.

BWAHHH! *ahem* Okay. I’m done.

Coming back to herself, Jenny wants to know what the hell just happened. They tell her she has someone really powerful and really pissed after her. And Dean tells her to cut things off with Don Stark. Jenny’s like, eww, he’s my boss. So…no affair with cupcake girl, then.

Maggie is busy setting up the art auction with her “best friend,” Sue, who loves Maggie a little too much. It’s…kinda creepy actually. Not hearts-in-cupcakes creepy. But still. Creepy. Don comes in and wants to talk to Maggie, but Sue tries to run interference until Maggie calls her off.
