Back with Sam, Nora’s rambling out the whole story – how she kept tabs on Jeffrey, but then how Jeffrey wanted her to give him a spell to summon the demon and then kidnapped her son.
Luci: Boy, you really knocked the cork out of her pie hole.
She gave Jeffrey everything he needed to summon a demon in hopes of getting her son back, but the spell didn’t work, so Jeffrey cut off her son’s ear and sent it to her in a box. Sam’s like, well, yeah, he gave up state secrets, not gonna be easy to get him back.
Nora said that she found a spell that would work for sure – but it required the blood of the exorcist…in this case, Dean. *gulp*
Sam: New plan. Tracking spell. Egyptian, Bavarian, I don’t care. Dealer’s choice. (plunks box of ear down on the spell book) Flesh of the body to find a body…and Dean. Do you want the ear or the kid?
Luci: You’re giving me chills.
Back at the warehouse, Jeffrey’s cutting Dean’s arm (pretty deep) to drain blood into a bowl. One last smidge of pickiness…we never see anyone bind that cut, so one would think it kept bleeding while he was tied up…only we never see any blood or any effects of blood loss. Just saying, if they were going to make ‘blood of the exorcist’ be a big deal, then the blood should stay a big deal until the wound is cared for. That’s how I’d have written it. Moving on!
Jeffrey says he knows Dean, after watching them work over the demon. That they showed a lot of their character.
Jeffrey: You were so desperate to fix the world back then. It kills you that people keep getting hurt and you just can’t stop it.
Dean: Screw you.
Jeffrey: Hey, I was there. And then I was depressed because he was gone. I was an emotional shell. A drunk. I was suicidal.
Hmmmm….. I’m not going to take that thought to fruition, but I bet you know what I’m thinking.
Dean (trying to get his hands free): I don’t usually endorse suicide, but what stopped you?
Jeffrey says it was his rehab therapist – he benefited from the whole program. “A life well lived comes from the structured pursuit of meaningful happiness.” Um, okay…? Anyway, he realized he was nothing without ‘his demon’ and found a purpose. As he’s talking, he leads the dog out of the room.
Dean: No…. (sounds of Jeffrey killing the dog) Oh, you sick son of a bitch.
I can’t believe he killed the dog. The dog always lives. *sniff* Apparently he not only killed it, he cut out its heart. Gah! He starts the ritual. The building shakes, dust falls, Dean ducks and looks around…then silence. Suddenly, Nora’s son, who’d been out of it all this time, lifts his head and breaks his bonds. Guess the demon wanted some new duds. He stands up, all black-eyed, and greets both Jeffrey and Dean.
