- Hot dog contest! Cheater hides dog in pocket, is attacked in his car and sucked of fat. Bacon makes everything better says his bumper sticker.
- Bunker – Dean pulls all nighter, hears of Stillwater death of a man going from 300 to 90 lbs. Dean assures Sam he doesn’t break that easy after their confessions of last week.
- Police station, guy suffered massive organ damage, hovered. Dean eats powdered donut messily. Competitive eater. Even deep fried butter. Slim Jim was in a contest at the time of Wayne’s death.
- Sam and Dean visit Jim. Wayne’s rival is eating lettuce in prep for a contest. His old lady is a gypsy. Sam asks to go to the bathroom, where Jim’s wife is showering. Picture of Bride in poofy pink. Hex bag? Sam flees. They leave their card with hubby. Putsi bag? She comes to their door to set the record straight–she loved Wayne and was having a years-long affair with him. Her hubby was skinny, and she enjoyed a little “give” sometimes. Pootsi bags are used for blessings, too. Wayne called her Princess Jasmine.
- Woman exercises to “Lift Us Up Where We Belong,” steps on scale to see a disappointing number. She is accosted by the fat-sucking monster, who crowns her with a barbell and sucks her down to a weight that would have made her much happier.
- Sam and Dean investigate the death and find a suction mark. Changeling? No, she’s not a child. Dean doesn’t want Sam to do the spa thing; he’s weird around girls. The blond Dean questions has a suction mark, too, but she’s alive. She went to the Canyon Valley Wellness Spa. They watch an online commercial–guaranteed weight loss results in one week.
- Sam and Dean go there, claiming to the beautiful male and female married owners to be certified trainers. Dean is fire and brimstone, Sam more gentle in outlining their talents as trainers. They hire Dean to manage in the kitchen, Sam as a trainer. Sam’s training yoga, he dated someone bendy. Dean’s wearing a hairnet and pushing tofu.
- A woman goes in for “cupping” with four innocuous glass bulb-like items and falls asleep, comfortable and happy. The pretty brunette monster opens her mouth and out pops a long tongue that attaches itself to the woman as well, a far less innocuous cup, sucking out her life.
- Kitchen – Dean is starving, but doesn’t want rabbit food. Dean spoons glop into cups and steals some.
- Sam teaches Yoga class! Orders downward dog for ten minutes, checks everyone for suction.
- Dean passes out from sampling the pudding.
- Sam is recognized as Agent Frehley by a girl in a wheelchair, a sheriff who knows them from a previous case. Dean calls Sam on his cell. “Sweet potatoes,” he gasps, barely conscious. Frantic, Sam runs to find him, finds him drugged, lying half-conscious against a sack of potatoes. Salty and sweet, the pudding was for the clients, mutters Dean. Sam attacks the guy who made the pudding, demands to know what’s in it. When Sam brings him the bottle, Dean recognizes it as roofies and is surprised Sam didn’t.
- The sheriff is thrilled she lost 10 pounds, her husband left her cuz of her weight. She guzzled her pain and wanted to feel pretty again. Sam and Dean are undercover for the murders in town. She has cupping in town. She ate the pudding and tells them who did her treatment.
- Sam and Dean have been made by the owners! They must get rid of the evidence.
- Sam finds one of the glass jars.
- A gun-wielding Dean finds Maritza, the Peruvian fat sucker, about to consume fat from a container in the fridge. When he accuses her of the murders, she explains that her brother, Alonso, has been killing people, not her. She wanted to help people slim down and satisfy her hunger–win-win.
- Alonso is ordered out by Maritza’s husband, who attacks and kills him. Sam finds the body, a bloody hole in his throat.
- Maritza tearfully explains how she tried to teach her brother “portion control,” but it didn’t work. Now three people are dead, including her husband. Dean and Sam insist Alonso must die. He’s in the basement, she says. They find another dead body down there. Alonso knocks a closet down on Sam, who escapes. They get into a brawl, and Alonso is just about to begin sucking Sam dry when Dean hacks off his ugly tongue, killing him.
- Psycho killer on the loose is what they tell the sheriff, and Sam objects when Dean wants to kill Maritza–she’s a monster. Would he have deserved to die when possessed by Gadreel? Sam asks him candidly. So, one-way ticket to Peru? Dean says, relenting.
- “I saved your hide in hospital, the church, back there, everywhere, I do the right thing.” “That’s the problem,” says Sam, “Kevin’s dead, what is the upside to me being alive. You and me, You saved me for you, not me.” “If the situation were reversed,” says Dean, “you’d do the same.” “No, I wouldn’t,” insists Sam. Dean is stunned.
1. Wow! Do you believe it? Would Sam let Dean die? Really? Is that why he didn’t search for him? My mind has been totally blown!
2. I don’t know if there’s an urban legend about a Peruvian fat sucker, but if one really exists, how man of you want to set up an appointment now?
3. Last week, Dean was willing to let a huge lot of werewolves live. This week, he gave Sam flak about allowing a woman who clearly had her situation under control and was even doing good in the world to live. Let’s see some character continuity, please.
4. Sam in training gear–yummy. Nuff said. Dean in a hair net. Still gorgeous.
5. There was a lot of humor in this episode, the opening with the eating contest, the cheater pocketing the hot dog, the weight loss craze with everyone wanting to lose as fast as possible (and wouldn’t it be great if you could just get it sucked out that quick and easy?), and Sam being recognized by the sheriff as Agent Frehley. (Odd that it doesn’t happen more often.)
6. The ending, however, was deadly serious. I think it hurt Dean terribly to hear that Sam wouldn’t go to the same extremes as he would to maintain his life. But I wonder, if put to a similar test, WHAT WOULD SAM DO? What do you think, Robin’s Ramble readers?
