Sam breaks into Jeffrey’s room and after a quick frown noting that Dean wasn’t where he’d left him, he starts poking around. Meanwhile, Luci’s following him around with a running monologue.
Luci: Regular interaction. I miss that! The rapier wit, the wittier rape. C’mon. I’ll be good. I’ll even help you solve your little Nancy Drew mystery.
Sam rifles through drawers, picks a lock on a desk and pulls out a box that looks like a modem.
Luci: Cell phone scrambler. But, Luci, those are illegal.
Swear to Pete, he actually calls himself ‘Luci’ – awesome! *laugh*
Luci: Maybe that has something to do with Dean’s phone black out.
Sam searches through more drawers, finds a hidden panel under some T-shirts and in there finds a metal box with some papers containing Latin translations. He leaves Jeffrey’s apartment, Lucifer tagging along, and is walking down the street looking at the papers…and talking with Luci. It’s almost as if he’s so engrossed in his search for Dean, in getting to the bottom of this demon/Jeffrey thing, that he’s forgotten that Lucifer isn’t actually there. Or, more to the point, is a piece of Sam himself.
Sam: I’ve never seen this spell before.
Luci: But you’ve seen this type of demon-summoning spell before.
Luci: Why? To summon a demon, jackass. Start looking at who.
Sam (finally stops walking and turns to face Luci): What do you mean?
Luci: Look at the page.
Luci & Sam at the same time: I know this handwriting.
Sam goes to Nora’s shop and at first it seems that there’s no one but Luci there…until Nora brains Sam with some kind of … lamp or statue thingy, knocking him down, but not out.
Luci (grabbing his head and looking at Sam): Ay carrumba mi cabasa! (And yes, I’m aware I just botched the hell out of the Spanish language…apologies.)
Sam demands to know why Jeffrey has a demon summoning spell in Nora’s handwriting and Nora sits on the couch in the office kinda losing it as she rambles about how it’s all happening just like Jeffrey planned, he can’t change it.
Luci: Hit her.
*bites cheek to not smirk*
Sam (to Nora): Tell me what’s going on.
Nora = silent.
Luci: Shake her up. She knows what happened to Dean! Get this stupid cow to focus, will ya?
Sam (on knees in front of Nora): Nora, listen to me! I am two inches from you and I can make you talk, you understand me?
Yikes, Sammy! Also? You bet your bippy she does, having seen what they did to Jeffrey four years ago. Also? This moment feeds into my theory that Luci is part of Sam – a version of soulless Sam, who would do whatever it took to get what he needed.
So, Nora tells Sam that Jeffrey has her son hostage.
Back at the warehouse, Dean wakes up, groggy, blurry, and tied to a chair next to the guy he was trying to rescue (whom we now know is Nora’s son). He’s trying to piece together what the hell just happened to him and is watching as Jeffrey hauls a table with spell stuff on it across the room to rest in front of Dean.
Jeff: I never asked you to save me. Did you ever think I might’ve loved being possessed? The connection, the power. And I loved him. He was the love of my life.
Dean: You gotta be kidding me.
So…there was no demon. Just Jeffrey the Copy Cat Killer trying to draw the attention of the boys so that he could get them there. Dean tries for the “mommy didn’t love you enough” distraction as he starts to work on his ropes.
Jeffrey: You shouldn’t trivialize other people’s pain.
Dean connects the dots that Jeffrey had that ‘spark’ but, in Jeffrey’s words, was too scared to “live up to his potential” so the demon set up camp in his skull and taught him how to kill. The list was his list, not the demon’s. Jeffrey says the demon saved him…and then Dean sent the demon to Hell. Whoops.
