Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.06 – Slash Fiction

Col. Tigh is like, The FBI is on their way. He agrees to do whatever he can to help them, especially if it means lying about everything he just saw. Heh. Dean asks if he could make them be dead…again. Col. Tigh agrees and Dean’s like, let’s get a mop.

Sam hangs back, still looking a bit gutted. Dean asks if he’s okay and Sam says he’s fine. Worried more about what just happened than the look on Sam’s face (which could easily be attributed to what just happened), Dean lets it go to get the bodies cleaned up.

Agents Morris and Valente arrive to get the Winchesters, and Col. Tigh (and the M.E., who turns out to be his daughter) becomes a lying liar who lies, telling the agents he shot and killed them, then sent their bodies to the funeral home to be cremated according to their living wills and religious preferences. Heh. Morris is sputtering at the fact that there aren’t any bodies, but Valente is like, no bodies = no paperwork = good. Which seemed a bit too easy, but…we soon find out why.

But first! Sheriff Mills is leaving and Bobby thanks her, looking for a brief moment as if he’s going to kiss her, but instead hands her a box telling her not to open it, no matter what. I had a brief flash to Se7en’s, “What’s in the box?” line. He tells her to drop it in the drink, that he has a body to bury in cement, then he gives her a friendly, chaste kiss on the cheek. Hrumph. I hope they bring her back.

Back in Ankeny, Col. Tigh and his daughter are angsting about the weird black blood and lying to the Feds when Valente comes back, catching them red-handed with the bodies. I should have – I really should have – seen this coming, but I didn’t. Especially because the scene with Dean in the cell telling the cop that he has to trust him or they were all going to die reminded me of Jus In Bello. But I was all la-la-la watching until the anvil dropped: Valente is actually a LeviFed. He goes all Big Mouth on them and bam! Dead Sheriff and M.E., who maybe could have helped the brothers down the road.

Have to keep the brothers cut off from help, right? Keep it so they only have each other (and Bobby) to depend on? Also have to show that the Leviathan’s are everywhere. So that’s why they’re so scary, I guess. They could be anyone. Even though their communication abilities are…various. So, while it was sad (and possibly a bit predictable…unless you’re me) that these two were the latest in a long line of Leviathan casualties, I saw a reason for it.

Valente calls the boss man, says their Levi friends are headless – so I guess that really does incapacitate them. It didn’t look like they could continue on rehabilitating their vessels w/out a head. But also doesn’t appear that they’re actually dead since they have to keep the heads separate. Wonder how they writers are going to find a solution for this one. I think Crowley might end up having something to do with it, ultimately, else the visit he pays the LeviBoss is totally random.

LeviBoss (who I’ve seen before elsewhere, but couldn’t place) tells Valente to go back to the FBI. They can’t bring Sam and Dean back from the dead again, because that would raise suspicions. So, they’re going to give the Winchester sitch “a good think.” Which means that we’ll probably have an episode or two break from Leviathan encounters while they’re thinking. Inside the Boss’s limo, Crowley appears bearing gluten-free muffins (and it sounded like he said something about them having been made from baby something, but I didn’t get it).

Crowley may not have a fiddle of gold, but he was looking to make a deal with a devlish being. Former King of the Crossroads and all. Boss man shuts him down hard with a, don’t rufie me and call it romance. Basically, to the Leviathans, demons are ugly, lazy, gold-digging whores who are less than humans and if he wasn’t busy with other things, the LeviBoss would wipe demons from the universe.

Crowley (looking 60% scared, 40% pissed): Keep the muffins.

Poof.

So. Either that means that Crowley will once more be looking to work with the brothers to jointly wipe out the Leviathans and/or return them to Purgatory (enemy of my enemy is my friend approach), or he’ll be working his own angle that will end up helping the brothers in the end, or that was really random. And while I adore Crowley, and I will go with whatever direction they take this because I’m enjoying watching this journey of my hero, I’m not sure how I feel about the concept of them working with the demon again. I hope that if the writers do go down the route of Crowley seeking them out, it’s done in a more imaginative way than making yet another deal.

*shrugs* Heck, maybe Crowley will help them get Cas back…. *ponders*

  1. I liked this episode, though I’m still not on board with Supernatural right now. Wish Kripke was still captain of the ship.
