Page 6 of 6Itâ€™s raining (shocker!) and the Impala pulls up in Garyâ€™s driveway. Gary isnâ€™t at all pleased to get home. So Sam goes into some strange speech. â€œGary, take it from someone who knows, shut up man, your life ainâ€™t that bad.â€ Gary points out Sam met his parents. â€œYeah, so what? Itâ€™s your life. If you donâ€™t their plan for you, tell them to cram it. Rebel a little bit in a healthy non-satanic way of course.â€ Gary looks at Nora, who just wants to go inside because itâ€™s raining and everyoneâ€™s getting wet. Oh, but Samâ€™s not done yet. â€œBy the way, you want to know why Noraâ€™s into witchcraft? She doesnâ€™t like Satan you moron she likes you.â€ I can buy that. Boys often need to just be flat out told these things. Gary doesnâ€™t believe it, but Sam says he knows. Yeah, Sam and every other person on the planet. Itâ€™s pretty obvious.
â€œTrust me kid, I wish I had your life.â€ Oh, this is just wrong. Sam Winchester giving advice to a teenager on how to control his life. Yeah Sam, how did that go for you? How is the fact that you rebelled against your dad and he died before you had a chance to set things right go for you? Gary asks if he does and Sam nods. Oh, Sam is so lying. I know that face. Gary smiles and goes inside finally. Dean, who is giving Sam that look as if his brother still isnâ€™t there, tells Sam that was a nice thing to say. â€œI totally lied. Kidâ€™s life sucked ass.â€ You see, this is where Dean should be laughing or something. Instead, heâ€™s really bothered again. Gee Dean, you didnâ€™t like Sam different and now you donâ€™t like Sam normal? Bazinga!
They climb into the Impala. â€œAll that apple pie family crap, itâ€™s stressful, trust me. We didnâ€™t miss a damned thing.â€ â€œOr we donâ€™t know what weâ€™re missing,â€ Dean says. Okay, so we go full circle. Sam doesnâ€™t want a family, Dean does. Second verse, same as the first. Dean starts the car and Bob Seger comes on again. Sam winces and tells him to turn it down. So the music wasnâ€™t blaring when they got there? Maybe Sam was humoring Gary and Dean on the way. â€œWelcome back Kotter,â€ Dean says, not exactly sure if heâ€™s pleased Sam is back. They pull away and roll credits.
Huh, thatâ€™s pretty disappointing. Way too sunny an ending for what just happened. For one, Gary got off too easy. After all, he just caused the death of his really stupid friend not to mention almost got Sam and Dean killed. Anyone devastated, or even remember the fact that Trevor is lying in a pool of his own blood in the basement? Anyone getting upset over whatâ€™s going to happen when his parents get home? Bazinga!
Now that this poorly done parallel of normal vs. abnormal family life is done, can we get to the freaking teenage free apocalypse? Pretty please?
