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

Dean: Obviously you two are capable of wiping each other out. But you haven’t, right? Which means, you still value whatever it is you’ve got. And you want to keep it going.

For not being his thing, he’s doing pretty good up to that point. But then, being Dean, he falls into the “…sick, messed up, erotic, kinky, clamps and feathers…” territory of what the Starks have and Sam steps in to rescue him.

Sam (with Dean nodding vigorously in the background): What he’s trying to say is that whatever you have, you’re bonded.

Maggie: He cheated on me. Humiliated me.

Sam: We’re not saying what Don did was right. But when a relationship cracks, usually both parties have a hand in it.

Maggie: You’re defending him?

She power-punches Sam in the gut, sending him to the floor and Dean surges forward calling out, “Okay! Okay, nobody can defend Don! We get that. You feel betrayed because you were.”

Don power shoves Dean across the room through a glass door. Maggie turns to Don and tells him why she killed all the peeps. Sam struggles to his feet and gasps out that Don “regrets the whole Wendy thing.”

Whoops.

Maggie takes exception to the “thing” and pulls Sam’s feet out from under him. With the boys writhing on the floor, the Starks have it out with a hilarious argument bringing up LITERALLY everything for the last 800 years – including a dalliance with Columbus in 1492. Don says Maggie’s always been jealous, but nothing happened with Jenny. Dean tries to echo, coming to Don’s defense, but Maggie knocks him back down.

Don is contrite, sincere and Sam struggles up again.

Sam: See? Guys? You’re talking! All these years you’ve buried your anger, your disappointment ‘till it tore you apart and all you needed to do was talk.

*rubs heart* Aww, Sammy.

Dean struggles upright and says something I didn’t catch…sounded like…nuking? I don’t know. Anyway, whatever it was, Maggie slams him against the wall and Don surrounds him with bees. Dean swallows one, then spits it out. Maggie chuckles and Don smiles at her. They admit they could never kill each other and it’s a witch make out session.

Okay, so, I get they were dealing with Really Powerful Witches. Who could kill them. But it just seemed a bit…odd, I guess, that they let them go after they’d killed four people. The whole reason Dean killed Amy was because he knew she would kill again. So…I’ll let this go because of the Really Powerful part, but this is one of those instances where continuity in writing would go a long way. Even if all it is is a comment about choice, about compromise, about why they had to let them go when they knew they’d kill again.

But I guess they can’t do that, can they, since Sam doesn’t know about Amy. So…for Sam, letting them go was just par for the course. ‘Course, there’s something to be said that they are alive, I suppose. *laughs at self* Ah, well.
