Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.06 – Slash Fiction

The LeviHitman is predictably taunting them – completely unafraid of them and willing to spill secrets because he’s sure they won’t be able to kill him. He tells them that Edgar walked away from the Chevy Smash Incident, which rattles Dean a bit. Dean pulls up a stool (pushing me to mutter too close…a little too close) and questions the LeviHitman on how it found them. Hitman tells him that it tracked their aliases using some algorithm (and a bunch of other words I totally didn’t understand).

Bobby: Great. Mensa-Monster.

Apparently the Leviathans all got a big Winchester download from “camp Cas” when they were inside the angel. So, they know all the boy’s aliases. Which is so not cool. And yet, really interesting at the same time. He mocks them, saying they must not have watched the news yet that morning.

These Leviathan’s must have a ‘hive mind’ or something – which wouldn’t explain the need to use cell phones to report in, but I can’t figure out how the LeviHitman knew it was that morning the killing spree was going to start. Because, as far as it knew, it was supposed to have killed them, right? So, how did the other Levi’s know it hadn’t finished the job? It’s not like Bobby let it have a phone call.

I’m just gonna hand-wave that unless ya’ll picked up on something I missed because I can’t for the life of me figure how the Hitman knew about the LeviWinchesters when it’d been zapped by a super-powered witch spell, dragged to Rufus’ old hide out, and chained in a basement after not killing the boys. Moving on.

Upstairs, the boys and Bobby are watching the news where they find out that Sam and Dean Winchester, who were presumed dead, are the subjects of a massive manhunt throughout CA. They see the footage of the bank killing. Bobby shuts it off in disgust.

Bobby: You boys have had a busy morning.

Dean: They Xeroxed us!

Sam: How?

Yeah, that’s exactly what I wanted to know. Thankfully, LeviHitman was feeling chatty. Guess it is good for something after all.

LH (yelling up through the ceiling from the basement below): It was some hair! From a motel shower drain!

Dean (looking at Bobby, who apparently he assumes has all the answers…which I find a little endearing, actually – Dean’s always needed a general): You can copy people like that? Awesome. What is their plan exactly?

While Bobby’s busy turning shrugging into an art form, Sam mutters, “Turn us into America’s Most Wanted.”

Sweetie, as far as fandom is concerned, you guys already are.

Dean wants to find ‘em and kill ‘em. Bobby doesn’t want them to stick their necks out – and reasonably so. They don’t know how to kill them or slow them down, and apparently, the Leviathan’s are smarter than the hunters (at least so far).Dean: This is personal.Sam: I’m with Dean.Good. Remember that, little brother.Bobby: If you’re gonna be stupid, you may as well be smart about it.Can’t argue with that logic. In fact, that might be my next Facebook status. He gives them an address and tells them to look up Frank Devereaux, says he owes Bobby one for Port Huron. Random references like that make me want to read the Bobby Singer Hunter’s Journal book thingy. I don’t read the tie-in novels (tried the first, it didn’t take…fanfic is just so much better, IMO), but I think I’d like to read this one to get a sense of Bobby’s back story.Bobby: I’ll keep working on Chatty Cathy. See if I can figure out what makes him die.

So, the boys head out and as they’re pulling into a random gas station, playing in the background is a variation of the Brother’s Guitar Riff (I have the original as my ringtone…hush) that I really liked. A little more dancing with the electric guitar chords.

Dean gasses up the car while Sam goes in for snacks (Dean wants his usual: Ding Dongs…only the box Sam puts down on the counter is of the “I’m in no way affiliated with Hostess” variety). Sam asks the clerk if he has any power bars and the look the clerk gives Sam when he glances up is pure, “oh, sh*t.” He tells Sam they’re in the back and gets up to go get them for him.

At this point, I kinda started talking to my TV. This continued throughout the rest of the episode. The hubs was in the room, working on some soccer stats or some other sporty boy thing and he kept tossing me amused glances. I ignored him and grumbled, “Oh, Sam, you dummy!” to the TV as Sam finally clued into the fact that the clerk was Acting Very Weird. He leans over the counter and see’s that the clerk had just seen “him” and “Dean” killing someone else in a different bank and was, in fact, calling the police at that moment. *shakes head at Sam*

Sam hurries back out at a super-quick walk muttering to Dean as he passes him, “Cashier just made me. Drive.” Obligingly, Dean detaches from the gas pump and peels out.

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