Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.06 – Slash Fiction

Frank tells them to stay out of view of the 200 million cameras the government has around the country – and while I don’t doubt there are many, this guy’s read 1984 a few too many times, you ask me. He breaks (read: completely shatters) Sam’s laptop, then hands him a new one – also gives them new, presumably untraceable, cell phones. Says they owe him $5,000. Cash. Either they had some of the dragon gold with them they could liquidate fast, or they signed an IOU because they left there and no money visibly changed hands. Plus, really highly doubt they had 5K just…on them.

He “blue steel”’s them some new IDs and ta-da! They’re off the grid. I heard before the season started that it was going to be Butch and Sundance-esque. I wasn’t sure how they were going to have that one play out. Obviously, now, the boys aren’t going to resort to robbing banks as Butch and Sundance did. But they are being pursued by relentless trackers who they can’t identify and are hard to incapacitate, impossible (it appears) to kill. When I get a new email, my computer plays the Butch soundbite, “Who are these guys?” That’s what I think the B&S theme is going to be for a bit. Who are they, what do they want, how do we elude them long enough to end them?

Meanwhile, back at the cabin, Bobby is trying to find a way to kill the LeviHitman.

Bobby: You can bleed, you can die.

LH: You’re stumped. I’m gonna really enjoy eating you.

Heh. I totally flashed to that quote from the movie The Rock, where Nic Cage mocks the bad solider, “I’m gonna enjoy guttin’ you, boy.”

Bobby’s all shut up, but the Levi just doesn’t know when to quit. He keeps at it until, frustrated, Bobby channels his inner McCloud and lops off the dude’s head with a big ol’ sword. Black ooze seeps out of the neck stump and Bobby stares in wonder.

Bobby: Hot damn! Well, that’s something.

Back at Frank’s, the old guy gives the boys new passports (that was wicked fast…wonder if he made them new fake FBI badges, too…or if we’ve seen the last of our boys showing suited up to a crime scene) and a map where he’s marked all the places the LeviWinchesters have hit. Can’t see a pattern, though. It looks random.

Frank: There’s no such thing as a random series of robber/murders by your evil twins. (Heh. I’ll keep that in mind.) Your doubles want to be on candid camera because they want you in the line of fire…at least have the common sense to ditch your car.

I may have yelped a bit.

Dean (looking stricken): What?!

Apparently the doubles have a double Impala. Okay, how…? I mean, it’s not like 1967 Impala’s are terribly easy to come by. How the heck did the clone the Impala?! *hand-wave*

Dean looks near tears as he glances at Sam. *sniff* Poor guy. This situation sucks out loud on various levels.

Back at Bobby’s—er, um, Rufus’ cabin—Bobby is getting some supplies and food out of a bag when there’s a knock at the door. Turns out, it’s Sheriff Jodi Mills.

Bobby: What the hell are you doing here?

Sheriff Mills: You’re all charm, Bobby.

Bobby: So my therapist keeps telling me.

Mills: I’m a cop, remember? (She holds up beer and snacks) Gonna invite me in?

Bobby warns her that he has one of the ‘big mouths’ downstairs so she’s like, I won’t go downstairs. Okay, let me just say this: I really like her. I like her with Bobby. While it might’ve been a little too easy for her to find Bobby in this supposedly totally off the grid random cabin of Rufus’, I like that she’s the one who finds the weakness (because if that’s what they’re going with, it makes total sense that a woman would be the one to accidentally stumble across it).

And if they kill her I will be very put out.

They (the writers) kill everyone who helps the boys – even the guest stars, these days. I get that they want them to be cut off, alone, on their own, desperate, but they’ve already put this particular character through way too much. Dead kid, zombie kid who eats husband, dead kid again…I mean, seriously. They better ultimately let her live. And that’s all I have to say about that.

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