A young woman comes forward and says it's okay. He calls her out by her name, Leah, and she announces dreamily it's Sam and Dean Winchester. A fan girl! She knows all about them. Dean is interested how with a flirty glare, until she mentions the word "angels." Suddenly he isn't impressed. She knows they can't see them there, the marks on their ribs hide them. Sam decides to clarify what they're hearing, just in case anyone is confused. "So you know all about us because the angels told you?" Yep. The angels told her the spell and where the demons are going to be before it happens. She's never been wrong and Daddy is proud.
Dean verifies that before she sees something, she gets a really bad migraine and sees flashing lights. Shouldn't Sam be asking that question since he's like, I don't know, HAD THESE VISIONS BEFORE? I guess Dean did have that one that Andy sent him. She wants to know how he knows. "You're not the first prophet we've met." Then he adds right in front of her preacher Dad, "but you are the cutest." Speak for yourself, I actually find Chuck kind of adorable. I like the geeky types though. Dad gives Dean the evil eye and he covers, saying he means that with respect. It doesn't work.
Next they're in a bar, and Sam among all that noise is trying to use a cell phone. Okay. The phone has gone to voice mail, and lady on the other end says "You have reached the voice mail of"¦ (beep)" and then Castiel is heard saying, "I don't understand, why do you want me to say my name?" Sam's contorted facial expressions while listening to all this is funny, and it's here too I notice his hair is running pretty long. Time to break out Dean's machete again. Better yet, I have some good updates for the Enigma of Sam Winchester's hair article. Interesting how Sam is doing the angel calling now. There are a bunch of beeps like numbers are being pressed and then the beep for the message goes off. Technically challenged angels. I love it.
Sam leaves a message they are in Blue Earth, Minnesota and need some help. Isn't that were Pastor Jim from season one was? Isn't that were Meg ganked him? Interesting. I wonder why there wasn't a few lines where someone remember him. This is a small town by the looks of it, someone has to remember. Sam gets the beers and the bartender, who is part of the militia, confesses that since The End started, it's been one long last call. Their actions at least earned a round on him. How neighborly.
Sam delivers the beers to Dean and tells him he left a message for Cas, he thinks. Dean has slipped into complacent jerk mode as they discuss theories as to why the demons are in town. Dean figures it's they're after the prophet. Sam is disgusted by the whole thing because these angels are sending the people to do their dirty work. Ah, you gotta feel the Winchester love for angels. Dean agrees but doesn't really care. "We're all gonna die Sam, in like a month, maybe two. I mean it. This is the end of the world. But these people aren't freaking out. In fact they're running to the exits in orderly fashion. I don't know that that's such a bad thing." Sam is not impressed and still remembers the saving people, hunting things motto. "Who says they're all gonna die. Whatever happened to us saving them?"
Dean kind of listens, but then the town bells ring so we don't get to hear his response. This is a shortfall of this episode. A lot of quick conversations in between some action that really never get off the ground. Everyone leaves and Sam asks Paul (I guess that's the bartender's name) what's going on. Leah has had another vision. Cue dramatic pause here. "Wanna go to church?" Sam asks. "You know me, I'm downright pious," Dean says finishing his beer. It's kind of interesting how that works out to be somewhat true later. Sort of, in a twisted Supernatural sort of way.
Pastor Gideon addresses the crowd, there are demons three miles, no five miles away. Is that a shout out to Monty Python and The Holy Grail? Probably not, but who knows. The demons are there and there are many. So break out the fire hose, what's the worry? He asks who's going to join him and what do you know, it's the militia and Sam and Dean. He offers a prayer and Sam and Dean do what most do in church, pretend to pray and then people watch. He says "Our father in Heaven," and Dean accurately says in a low voice, "Not so much." You've got the inside info there Dean! Paul does one better, pulls out a flask and drinks instead. Now that's my kind of church service.
Now for the raid and you know what, recapping an action sequence is no fun. That's because it's meant to be quick, frenzied, lots of really cool fighting, and me writing about it bit by bit is as dry as toast. So, how about just a bunch of screen shots instead? You fill in the blanks.
