Which leaves the boys in something of a fog for a bit, that is until they get, or rather Dean gets, obsessed with figuring out just what the number be scrawled on Sam's hand means. 45489. It's not a locker, a zip code, or a bank number. They just can't figure it out. Which makes sense, since it's missing a number. Only they don't know that, so they send it off to Frank, who we met some episodes back. The conspiracy theorist type who helped changed their identities, remember? Yep. They haven't heard from him in a while, and Dean wants to check in on him, but then Sam gets a call on Bobby's line from a girl looking for help from Bobby. Not wanting to leave a young girl high and dry, Sam goes off to help her while Dean goes off to find Frank.
|Sam does not look amused, Sally.|
Meanwhile, Dean has tracked down Frank, and after convincing each other that neither of them are leviathans, they get to work. Frank tells Dean that he figured out Bobby probably wasn't able to write down all of the numbers, and after running some kind of number thingamajig, comes up with coordinates that lead them to a field in Wisconsin. They check out the field, but right now it's pretty empty. Which would be harmless enough, except there's surveillance everywhere, and some people surveying the area, clearly getting ready to build something. What? We don't know, and we don't find out yet, because that's when Dean finds out that Sam's in trouble.
Krissy calls up Dean after not hearing from Sam for a couple days, and he goes off to find him. Only this time around, Krissy fesses up that she knows what's what, and wants to go with Dean to find Sam and her dad. Dean tries to leave her behind, but she's a crafty one. Once they arrive at whatever abandoned warehouse they're hiding out in, Dean handcuffs Krissy inside the car and goes in alone.
At first it looks like it's going to be Dean to the rescue, but then Krissy runs in and gets caught by Sally, the sexy vetala. Guess those handcuffs were not foolproof (bobby pins are so versatile!). Dean gets a bit deer in the headlights when they threaten Krissy, and in the end it's Krissy herself who ends up stabbing and killing Sally, with Sam taking out the other one while Dean distracts her. They'll live to fight another day.
Except that Dean apparently seems to convince Krissy and her dad that they should give up the hunting life and go for a normal one. Maybe she could go to even, say, Stanford, like a certain ginormo little brother did.
Alas, it is too late for the brothers Winchester to get out of the hunting life now. Particularly when they've got their sights set on Dick Roman. Just what he's up to, we'll find out later. Probably not next week, though, as it looks to be a time travel episode.
- Did you know that Meghan Ory, the girl who played Sally the sexy vetala, also guest starred in Dark Angel with Jensen Ackles? She was Rachel Berrisford in The Berrisford Agenda episode, one of the best episodes of that series ever, actually. I knew she looked familiar!
- Madison McLaughlin, who played Krissy, really knocked it out of the park, I thought.
- Frank basically tells Dean to fake it til you make it. To live week to week, putting a smile on his face, masking the pain beneath. Dean attempts to do just that at the end of the episode, but he's not the most successful. Dean, Dean. You're really not good at masking your emotions, dude. It never ends well. Just saying.
- We had not just one but two songs in the episode tonight! What! That's crazy. Crazy awesome.
- Every time Frank said Dean looked like crap, I couldn't help but think - not really. Maybe it's just too hard to make Jensen look crappy? Probably.
- The previously made a big deal about Lucifer still being around in Sam's head. We going to see more of that manifest?
- The disappearing beer. Speculation seems to be either Cas or ghost Bobby. Honestly at the time I just thought it was Dean losing track of his beer because he's kind of an alcoholic, but who knows.
Frank: Oh yeah. Dick Roman's not a leviathan. Gwyneth Paltrow's not a leviathan.
Frank: Trust me.
"Costume. What?" - Dean
Krissy: Bad actress, huh?
Dean: I take it back.
