Page 3 of 6Back to Sam, whose demon hunting researching ways won't leave him that easily. He's checking out Revelation online, or at least a scan of it in old world Latin. That must be the lesser know n version. Sam pulls out his phone, goes to Dean on the contact list, and then back up to Bobby. He calls, and we see Bobby back at home, in his wheelchair, looking pretty glum. Sam tells him where he is and yes, Bobby has been informed of the brotherly split. Sam points out the omens and Bobby rightfully wants to know why Sam is calling him. Sam hopes Bobby can "put a man on it." Bobby breaks out the sarcastic tone he's so good at . "Okay, let me see if I can think of the best hunter who might be in the immediate vicinity. Oh, that be you." Sam insists he's sitting this one out. Oh Sammy, you know this is going to backfire, right ? He hangs up before Bobby can give him one of his trademark verbal ass whoopings.
Dean has taken up shelter in an abandoned house this time, and Castiel appears from nowhere. I know that's a camera trick, but wouldn't it be so cool if I had the ability to do that? I'd freak the living crap out of everyone who knows me. Actually, I'd only use it at work as a show of dominance. That'll teach everyone to stop ignoring my emails. Muhwahaha! Anyway, Dean asks Cas where he's been. "Jerusalem." "Oh, how was it?" Dean asks with that hint of sarcasm one gives when a quick errand to Jerusalem is not something we mortals do. "Arid." Hee, for some reason I really love that answer.
Castiel has an old pitcher with some very special oil, very rare. "Great," Dean says, "so we're going to trap Raphael with a nice vinaigrette?" Oh come on Cas, laugh at that. It's funny! He doesn't. The ritual goes down at sunrise. "Isn't that kind of like trapping a hurricane with a butterfly net?" Dean asks. "No, it's harder," Castiel dryly replies. "Do we have any chances of surviving it?" You're only asking now Dean? Wouldn't have that been the first question? "You do," Castiel answers.
Dean's eating this up. "So odds are you're a dead man tomorrow." Considering Cas recently blew up and was resurrected, Dean knows that's likely not going to happen. He plays along, ask ing Castiel what he plans on doing on his last night on earth. "I just thought I'd sit here quietly." Dean is slight ly exasperated by that. He prods some more, asking if he does anything, booze, women, that sort of thing. Um Dean, angel. Nope. "You have been with a woman before, or an angel at least." Cas' uncomfortable adjust ment of his collar makes that a negatory. "You mean to tell me you've never been up there doing a little cloud seeding?" Castiel has never had occasion. Seriously? How old is he? I t doesn't matter, for Cas has opened the door. Dean stops himself from busting out laughing and man does he have a great reaction. I just can't describe it. Dean's taking on the mission to do something about th is . "Let me tell you something there are two things I know for certain. One, Bert and Ernie are gay. Two, you are not going to die a virgin, not on my watch." Oh no, this can't go well.
Sam on the other hand has bigger problems. He's doing his bus boy thing at the bar and someone shouts out "Sam!" He ignores them since his name is "Keith" but waitress Lindsay knows they're talking to him and points that out. Now its time for Sam to do some lame covering of his own. "That's my middle name." No, it isn't, but I'd love to know what his real middle name is. Dean's too. She finds the name Keith Sam to be odd, but one of the three men there , who we'll call hunter #1 says its really Samuel. Has anyone in this show ever called him Samuel? We only know it due to one glimpse on a monitor in "The Benders."
Anyway, these three guys know Sam because they hunted with his Dad. Of course Samuel is a decent hunter himself. "Oh, so you hunt deer and things?" Lindsay asks. "And things," hunter #1 clarifies. Awkward! It also should be noted Sam has his trademark white shirt on that only buttons half way with the weird paisley-like print and the red markings on the rolled up sleeves. That thing is really looking ropey by season five. I first remember that shirt in "A Very Supernatural Christmas," but I'm going to have to go back to see if it was worn earlier than that. Someone gets a huge prize of bragging rights if you find that out first.
Sam sits down with these guys, serving them all up beers. The hunters want to know why Sam isn't doing this hunt. "It's personal." Oh Sam, you know evasive answers invite trouble. H e hasn't learned his lesson. "What baggage is so heavy it can't be stowed away for the freaking apocalypse?" h unter #1 asks. Only if...never mind, you find out. Sam tries again to avoid the answer and I start pounding my head on a desk. Throw them a bone Sam, hunters don't respect privacy. This scene is where you deserve to have the snot kicked out of you, not later. The boys go on their merry, yet very suspicious ways and they say Sam's buying the beers when they get back. These guys are going out to what could be certain death and all they want from Sam is a beer? It better be damned good beer.
Lindsay is now more curious than ever. "So now your parents were drunk when they named you and you shoot Bambi?" Trust me, he wishes it was just Bambi. He goes for the "long story" cop out, but she's had enough of his "Kung Fu wandering the earth" thing as have I. She's buying him dinner and they're talking. Sam doesn't want to , but s he won't take no for an answer.
Dean and Castiel are in a place of "uncertain morals ." Dean smiles and has a beer while Castiel's freaked out expression is priceless! Dean tells him to relax. "This is a den of iniquity, I should not be here." Dean's logic gets somewhat twisted. "Dude, you full on rebelled against Heaven. Iniquity is one of the perks." A girl in a see through white nightie comes over and asks Castiel his name, which he can't answer. He's too nervous . Way to go Misha, you actually nail in one terrified look the absurd notion of a thousands year old angel being set up with a hooker. One named Chastity. Someone who abstains from sex on moral grounds? Funny Mr. Carver. What's also funny? Watching Castiel slam down a beer.
Chastity starts to drag Castiel to the back, but Dean stops him. He gives him a wad of cash and some instructions. "Take this. If she asks for a credit card, no. Just stick to the basics. Do not order off the menu. Go get her tiger, don't make me push you." Castiel grabs the money in fear and goes. I know, why is Cas listening to Dean? He won't listen to Dean when it comes to matters of God, why now? Who knows, but let's try to not over think it since this scene was meant for comic relief. Dean mingles a beautiful woman and there's a scream in the back. Dean investigates and Chastity is going off on Castiel, throwing things at him and telling him " screw you jerk. " Can't they bleep out harsher language and then leave in the real stuff on the DVD? No prostitute is going to go off without obscenities. She tells the same thing to Dean on the way out and continues her girky hissy fit while storming away.
