|There aren't many who can make Sam look small.|
Meanwhile, we flash back to war-torn Europe in World War II, where some Nazis are taken out by some big dude. One of them gets away, however, working some magic. There's also this ledger book that's apparently important that he doesn't take with him. This ledger has traveled through to present day, where an old Jewish dude has tracked it down to a library, only he knows he's got someone nefarious on his trail, so nefarious, in fact, that said bad dude causes the old guy to spontaneously combust. Well, that's a way to ruin your day.
|Golem? Necromancer? Neither sound too great.|
So, basically, the Judah Initiative created the Golem to take out this Thule Society of Nazis who were doing terrible magical, necromancer-style experiments on Jews, gypsies and the like. He managed to destroy the compound, as we saw, but there are still some of the Thule around in modern society, and they are looking for that ledger, as it has records of their experiments and who they managed to turn into necromancers. Aaron's grandpa hid the book in the library, so they go to find it, only to have one of the necromancers follow them. Lucky for them, they have a Golem on their team this time, and he easily dispatches the necromancers. Also lucky that they always salt and burn their bodies, as that's the only way to make sure a necromancer stays dead, apparently.
|Just doin' our thing, wearing some plaid, holdin' some guns.|
In other news, Golems are weird.
Anyway, there's some fighting and all of that, and in the end these particular members of Thule are dispatched. Now that Aaron has seen the importance of his grandfather's work, he decides he should follow in his footsteps after all, and writes his name on the Golem paper. So we can assume they go off to hunt themselves some Thule Nazi bastards.
The boys head back to their new bunker, which both seem to be enjoying rather a lot. Sam for the vast amounts of knowledge, Dean for the free booze and a safe place to sleep, though we must remember that the last Man of Letters told them to close it up forever, so clearly it's not going to be a forever home.
- OMG, that whole bar scene with Dean and Aaron... HILARIOUS. Mostly because of Jensen/Dean's reaction to the whole thing. The gay references on this show lately are getting more and more blatant.
- How long until some evil dudes find out about the secret bunker and either try to break in or successfully break in? Let's just say the Winchesters do not have the best luck when it comes to these things.
- Why was that ledger so important? It's possible I missed something, but it seemed sort of silly for them to care so much about it for the sake of secrecy.
- What if the Men of Letters had never gone defunct, John joined them, and Mary was working as one of their hunters, and they had this, like, forbidden romance? And then... ahem. Sorry. Sometimes I get carried away.
Dean: Sammy, I think we found the batcave.
Sam: You gonna take off the dead guy robe?
Dean: Okay... citizen... as you were.
Aaron: What, do two just break in wherever you go?
Dean: Our dad wanted us to have a solid career to fall back on, just in case this hunter thing didn't pan out.
