Now its room loaded with Supernatural the book series posters and a woman is at the computer writing some very squeamish fanfic. As in slash. As in Sam caressing Dean's, ewww, I'm not going there. LALALALALA!!!! I'm not hearing this !!! I uncover my ears when a message comes in from Carver Edlund. She answers and Chuck appears on screen. Woman flips out. "You got my letters and my marzipan!" "Yeah, yeah," Chuck replies, "Yummy." When I was at the Chicago con last year, a volunteer for Creation got on the elevator with me hauling a luggage cart with tons of food and candy. He said that when people give gifts to Jared and Jensen, they keep the other stuff but aren't allowed to keep the food. Apparently that gets hauled upstairs into the volunteer's room. Next time I'll have to see how much marzipan is there.
She's Chuck's number one fan. "I'm Samlicker81. Webmistress at morethanbrothers.net." Oh come on Kripke, gross! We aren't that bad, are we? Scratch that, we probably are. Chuck admits he's being watched and needs her help. Becky is thrilled. He tells her he needs to get a message to Sam and Dean. Becky looks at him gently offended, not appreciating being mocked. These are only books and she knows the difference between fantasy and reality. Suddenly I realize this is an exact recreation of one of my favorite scenes in Galaxy Quest. I know what's coming next! "Becky, it's all real." "I knew it!" she exclaims. Yep, the exact words and delivery. Awesome.
Sam and Dean are back at the hotel, and Dean is watching someone on TV ask an expert how he can explain an earthquake, a hurricane and multiple tornadoes all at the same time. He blames it on carbon emissions. "Yeah, right wavy gravy." Ooh, does Dean have a think against environmentalists. Not that is matters, because he knows the real truth . There's a knock on the door. Sam answers and it's Becky. Oh, this has got to be interesting. Yeah, she's a fan girl alright, a Sam fan girl. How funny! She melts at the site of him, but doesn't hesitate to feel up those pecs of steel. "You're so firm!" Oh man, how did Jared get through this? Plus you have to wonder how often he actually gets greeted like that. She dreamily says he's Sam Winchester, and you're (looking at Dean), "not what I pictured." Ooh, no he didn't! Kripke is dissing the Dean girls. And the Sam girls with this over the top fan mauling. Either way, I'm loving it. I'm willing to forgive this girl for being a sicko slash writer. No, I'm not.
She storms in without invitation and introduces herself as Becky. " I've read all about you and even written a few"¦ " she gets embarrassed. You should be! You have these two, oh I can't go there. She gets to the point; she's delivering a message from Mr. Edlund who's being watched. "Angels! Nice changeup to the mythology by the way. The demon stuff was getting kind of old." Oh, now Kripke is smacking down those that hate the angels. No one is safe. Next he's probably going to take a jab at bloggers that give up their entire livelihoods to write daily articles overanalyzing the show. (Please Kripke?)
Okay, back to story. Chuck's latest vision tells them to find Michael's sword and comes with the cryptic clue of " in a castle on a hill made with 42 dogs. " They ask if she got the message right and she said it didn't make sense, but that's what he said. Of course by this point she's gone back to Sam pec groping. A very uncomfortable Sam says, "Becky, uh, can you quit touching me?" With her eyes closed her quick reply is "no." She gasps some more. I wouldn't be gasping if that were me. I'd have already gone thud on the floor by now.
Outside the no tell motel and it's the Impala! Oh, how I missed her. I saw some others over the summer, but none compare to her beauty. It's Bobby! I missed him too. That's twice now he's gotten to drive the Impala.
He gives both boys a hug as he comes into the motel room and Dean asks if he was followed. "You mean by angels, demons, or Sam's new super fan ? " Sam gives him an embarrassed smile. Those three never hesitate at a chance at poking fun at one another, do they? Bobby has book in hand and t hey talk about how Michael is the toughest angel there is, which we pretty much know from other episodes. "The guy looks like Cate Blanchett," Dean jokes. Considering what we find out later, I wouldn't joke about Michael's looks Dean.
Michael, as most of us know from Sunday school, is the archangel that defeat ed Lucifer and had him imprisoned. They have plenty of books to go through to try a make sense of Chuck's message. Sam goes to get some books and stops, becoming somewhat emotional . Bobby asks if he's alright and Sam says no. Sam painfully admits what he did. Dean tries to stop him, but Sam is too overwhelmed by guilt to listen. He tells Bobby Lilith was the final seal, he killed her and he set Lucifer free. He didn't listen to them, and it's all his fault. Bobby does not take this well. Actually, he's really freaking harsh. He yells at Sam. He calls him reckless, selfish, and arrogant, and starting Armageddon is not forgivable. Yikes! Poor Sam pulls out his sad trademark puppy dog look , which now comes with 50% more puppy since he's not hopped up on demon blood. "If by some miracle we pull this off, I want you to lose my number, understand me?" After Bobby is done completely crushing Sam, he maintains his composure with broken voice and offers to research at a nearby church.
This exchange is interesting in so many ways! For one, this is so out of character for Bobby, which right away tells us something's not right. T here's also the distraction of Dean standing in the background watching this. He"˜s shocked but at the same time lets Bobby go on because he doesn't think he's wrong. Either that or he's still harboring too much resentment of his own. That's a switch for Dean, who's always stepping in the middle to protect Sam, like the times when Sam and John were fighting. Then poor Sam, who swallows it all for now because he has to fix his mistake , quietly crumbles inside as seen in the next shot of him leaving the motel. Bobby's words really stung. I don't see how Sam hasn't had a nervous breakdown by now. Who knows, maybe that's coming.
