|Shouldn't we be better at detecting liars by now? No?|
Anyway! Basically, this semi-dorky kid Brian has this semi-charismatic friend Michael who ends up dating this girl Kate that Brian is not-so-secretly in love with. Brian wants to be a filmmaker of some kind, which apparently means just filming himself and his buds in search of a story. Things are just run of the mill college-y until one night when Michael finds himself running away from this bully type Scott in the woods, and ends up getting bitten by something.
Magically, the bite heals, and Michael now seems to have superpowers. He's all strong and whatnot. Meanwhile, though, this other kid was killed, and Sam and Dean have come to town to investigate whether it's their type of case. You know, clawed and missing a heart and semi-eaten and all that. This worries Michael and Kate because they don't really know what's going on with him, but Brian is just like dude, it's cool, bite me too so I can be a mutant misanthrope rather than just this pining person who likes filming stuff.
|Those kids filming us aren't suspicious at all, nope!|
Michael's not so into that, especially not after he has a particular night craving for human hearts, and ends up killing Scott, that bully frat douche from earlier. By this point, they've eavesdropped on the Winchesters enough to figure out that Michael is a werewolf who was probably bitten by an alpha that's in town, who was previously just feasting on animal hearts, but went off the wagon, so to speak. Brian ends up figuring out the alpha is actually one of their college professors, because he was able to spot a pin that was rather conspicuously displayed on said professor's chest earlier in the footage of Michael being attacked.
So what does our ole buddy Brian do? He goes to confront el profesor, of course, because he wants the bite too. He gets it, all right, and gets out of there just before Sam and Dean have tracked down the same professor, and kill him, hunter style.
Brian hurries back to tell his friends the "good" news, but of course they're not so into it. Michael and Brian get into fisticuffs, which ends with Brian stabbing his bff in the belly with a silver knife. Definitely the best way to end an argument, for sure. Kate's freakin' out, but Brian is all "let me bite you so we can be together!" Because that will erase the fact you just killed her boyfriend, yeah. Not so much. It will just give her the super strength to kill your very own ass, Brian. Which she does. I'm amazed how fast these transformations apparently take. Like, instantaneous. Bite, heal, SPAZZ!
Kate edits Brian's videos down into a movie for the Winchesters to watch, pleading that they don't come after her, because she's not going to kill anyone, she promises, pinky swears even. I am a little bit weirded out that Dean is okay with letting her go. On the one hand, since he is friends with the vampire Benny, sure, but on the other, he seems to be all crazy gung ho hunter guy, so...?
No random thoughts this week, really, due to the one off nature of the episode. Also my laziness, perhaps. Anything's possible.
Michael: Is it just me, or are you getting a workplace romance vibe from those two?
Dean: Clear eyes, clogged arteries, can't lose.
Kate: I'm pretty sure FBI agents don't say awesome that much.
