Summary: The fun and comedic episode was penned by Nicole Snyder and Eric Charmelo. It’s a classic locked room mystery and finds much inspiration in the movie Clue. And I have to say, I loved it. It was old school Supernatural and yeah I’ve missed that. Thank you, Charmelo and Snyder!
The episode begins with a rich mansion with a butler and two maids preparing for a funeral of Bunny LaCroix. One maid is picking clothes out and we see her try on a necklace. A ghost, it seems, appears and kills her.
The boys are at motel when Dean shows Sam a phone – Bobby’s phone. He’s been left something by Bunny and they head to the LaCroix mansion where the LaCroix family is. The women hit on Dean and Sam while the butler warns them to leave and gives them what Bunny left Bobby, so they don’t have to stay. They find a necklace, which turns out to be a key….so of course they go back to find a lock.
Meanwhile one of the LaCroix family, Stanton, is killed by what appears to be the ghost of Bunny’s husband, Lance. When the boys get back they are detained for questioning as everyone in the house are now murder suspects. While Sam stays and talks to the youngest, Dash, Dean tries to check for clues in the case.
Dean finds Olivia and comes back to find Sam playing cards with the women. They think that Bunny and Lance are ghosts. They think the butler did something. Dean goes to find Phillip, the butler, while Sam investigates and tries to avoid the advances of an older LaCroix woman. While Dean is talking to Phillip, Sam finds Phillip’s dead body. He texts Dean who is then knocked down by his “Phillip” and finds left behind flesh….it’s a shapeshifter!
Dean discovers Dash and Amber are having an affair while Sam distracts the older LaCroix women with his large hands. They all gather together and find the police detective dead and then the fun of accusation begins! The family accuses Sam and Dean of being the murderers…..and then they see the video camera and they realize the maid is holding the family hostage. And the maid is Bunny’s daughter!
Sam and Dean get out of the locked room and Sam engages Olivia while Dean goes to get the silver bullets. Sam finds out that Bunny had an affair with a shapeshifter and Olivia was the child of that affair. Bobby killed Olivia’s father and spared her life but required Bunny to lock Olivia away for her own good, so Bunny kept her in the attic. Just as she is about to kill Sam, Dean kills her and then keeps shooting as a stunned Sam looks on.
The episode ends with the boys telling Dash to forget they were there and then a serious conversation in the car between them where Sam asks Dean about the extra shots. Sam wants to know if it’s demon residue or the mark but Dean dismisses it as the first kill and then turns up the radio to Bob Seger.
That was pretty fun, right?
So do you think Dean’s exuberance about the Olivia kill was what he said, just the first kill back? Or is Sam right to be concerned?
