â€œNo, I didnâ€™t catch it. It killed three of my people. I shot it through of elephant tranquilizer and it chuckled.â€ Um, Samuel, who are you talking to on the phone? Why would anyone you know care? â€œTo be honest Iâ€™m not sure I want to find it. But yeah, weâ€™ll find a way to catch it.â€ Interesting that the director here chose to do a closeup on Samuelâ€™s eyes. Not sure what that means. â€œYeah sure, Iâ€™ll bring it right to you, gift wrapped.â€ Samuel hangs up the phone. Great, another deep Campbell mystery to speculate.
Dean comes into the kitchen where Lisa is doing dishes. He asks where Ben is. â€œBike ride.â€ That worries Dean, a lot. Lisa gets disgusted and wants to know whatâ€™s up, so Dean finally comes clean. He doesnâ€™t know what to do. If he knew what the safest thing was, heâ€™d do it. â€œStay here and look after you guys, or get as far away as I possibly can. I donâ€™t know.â€ He gets what heâ€™s doing, the yelling and everything. â€œActing like a prison guard, thatâ€™s not me.â€ Then Dean goes for the major self pity statement. â€œYou tell yourself youâ€™re not going to be something you know, but my dad was exactly like this, all the time. It scared the hell out of me.â€ Ooh, Dean knows heâ€™s not doing something right when he pulls a John.
Lisa asks if she can be honest. When are you not Lisa? Dean needs this. Maybe theyâ€™re safer with Dean there, maybe they arenâ€™t. But Lisa knows heâ€™s not a construction worker. Heâ€™s a hunter. â€œAnd now you know your brother is out there things are different. You donâ€™t want to be here Dean.â€ He says he does. She looks at him earnestly and realizes heâ€™s telling the truth. â€œOkay, okay but you also want to be there. I get it. Youâ€™re white knuckling it living like this. Like what you are is some bad awful thing. But youâ€™re not.â€ Dean takes this all in, so now Lisa can lay down the rules. â€œBut Iâ€™m not going to have this discussion every time you leave. This is just going to keep happening, so I need you to go.â€
This doesnâ€™t make Dean happy, because he doesnâ€™t want to lose Lisa and Ben. She tells him thatâ€™s not what she said. He clarifies, sheâ€™s saying hit the road. â€œDean, if thereâ€™s some rule that says this has to be either or, how about we break it.â€ Dean canâ€™t believe what heâ€™s hearing. â€œMe and Ben will be here and you come when you can. Just come in one piece.â€ Dean asks her if they can pull something off like that. Lisa thinks itâ€™s worth a shot, and gives him that trademark pearly white smile.
â€œSmoke on the water, a fire in the sky...â€ Final shot on one cool yet happy Dean and the sound of the wheels spinning as a car takes off. Theyâ€™re back! Wow oh wow! Best ending in way so long. Is it next week yet???
Thank you Adam Glass. You rule.
