Recap: Supernatural, Episode 7.06 – Slash Fiction

Before they can do anything else, though, the Ankeny Sheriff’s department pulls up and surrounds our brothers. The hubs called this before I could – the Sheriff was the actor who played Col. Saul Tigh from the new Battlestar Gallactica (one of our joint guilty pleasures, once upon a time). I never caught his real name, so I’m just going to go with Col. Tigh. Feel free to correct me. It’s not like we have to remember it long, anyway.

Bobby hears the boys get arrested over the phone, and the LeviWinchesters drive off, with LeviDean giving the boys a wicked grin (which was also oddly sexy…I swear there’s not much this guy can do that doesn’t get to me). Back in The Basement Of Endless Torture, LeviBobby is still trying to get under Bobby’s skin.

Bobby: Save it. I already know me, handsome.

LeviBobby: You’ve got the gruff thing down. Seen more death than an electric chair. (In his best John Wayne impression.) Ready to die with your boots on. You know deep down you still have hope. You’ve got a thing for that pretty lady upstairs. But you’re not getting any older than tomorrow.

Bobby pulls out the Highlander sword and quotes Browning at the thing, “A man’s reach should exceed his grasp.”

Just then, something drips down from the ceiling, burning the Levi’s arm, and then its face, like acid. Bobby rushes upstairs to find Sheriff Mills washing the floor, apologizing for a spill of something or other. Bobby rushes up to her and kisses her full on the mouth.

Mills: Wasn’t expecting that reaction.

I may have whispered to the hubs that I’d wash the kitchen floor every day if I got that reaction. Bobby asks her what’s in the bucket.

Meanwhile, in the Ankeny jail, Dean’s asking for a call, but Col. Tigh demands he be taken to cell #1 and Sam to the interview room, then gives the two cops the night off. Which was an interesting choice, I thought, since he had two mass murderers on his hands. But oh, well. The LeviWinchesters are outside the police station, watching from the LeviImpala. They quickly make themselves into the cops who were leaving, return to the station, and kill the night duty cop. Yikes.

While all that’s going on, Col. Tigh is talking to Dean and Dean is practically begging for his phone call, his voice shaking a bit as he tries once more to deny that he killed anyone. Something in his voice or face must’ve been convincing enough because Col. Tigh allows him the call – holding the phone, on speaker, outside of the cell (so he hears everything).

Bobby tells Dean that sodium borate – anything with Borax in it – will burn the Leviathans. How ’bout that. I grew up on a farm with a well, and we had to use Borax in our laundry to help with the rust in our water. We also used massive amounts of rock salt in the water softener. Guess we were pretty stocked up for demon and Leviathan attack. *grins*

Bobby tells him that the Borax burns them enough to slow them down, then he needs to chop off their heads and bury the head waaaaaay separate from the body. At that, Col. Tigh closes the phone all, you people are totally sick. Which, sure. I mean, what would any normal person think after hearing chemical burning and decapitation from someone suspected of being a serial killer? Dean tries to plea with him, saying if he doesn’t listen to him, they’ll all be dead – ala Jus In Bello.

But then, luckily (for the boys if not for him), Col. Tigh heads out just in time to see one of his officers eating another just as a third walks in, tells him they don’t have time for lunch, and the two still living cops morph into Sam and Dean. Col. Tigh goes back to Dean, clearly shaken up, all I don’t know what I just saw. Dean does, though, and makes him let him out, telling him to go get Borax and meet him back there. Good thing the station janitor’s closet has that as a cleaning agent.

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