The fast and furious version of “Girls, Girls, Girls”! I loved it!
Running woman. . .man chasing her. . .his name is Raul and he’s not a man. She stabs him in the eye with the heel of her shoe. He breaks her neck, stating there’s plenty more where she came from.
Dean and Sam eat in a diner. Yummy Porterhouse steak. Dean’s got himself a dating APP. He’s Impala67 and the girl is Shaylene and hot. Is she a prostitute? Too good to be true? “She may not even be a girl”, teases Sam. Shaylene shows up–she’s all girl.
They detoured just so Dean could get laid.
Cas and Hannah have found most of their flock of angels. They must find them all, insists Cas. Hannah strips down in front of Cas. He’s uncomfortable. She’s taking a shower, even though they don’t need to. She grins at his embarrassment.
Shaylene wants Dean to pay for the sex–with his SOUL! “No cash for ass”, says Dean. “I just sign over my life?” She loves her job. Dean sees no love here. He’s pissed off.
Hannah runs into her vessel’s husband. Uh oh.
Sam and Dean set a trap for Shaylene’s pimp, who recognizes them as Winchesters. This guy is a demon from hell. There’s a whole brothel of girls involved, reveals Shay. When he calls her a ho, Shay grabs Dean’s DKK and stabs him to death. Luckily, they find a card with the address of the brothel on it in the pimp’s pocket.
At the brothel, a new girl is to be killed for refusing to wear the clothes Raul ordered her to wear. Before that happens, the redheaded witch enters. Raul insults her age and she kills him, leaving him with black goo falling from his mouth. His henchman demon leaves his body. The witch invites the two girls to come with her. They go, eagerly.
Hannah convinces Caroline’s husband, Joe, she’s in love with Cas by giving him a passionate kiss. She and Cas leave Joe, who is devastated.
Dean and Sam find the dead Raul. Pure demon, says Sam. What could kill a demon like this? They find a hex bag–a witch.
The witch, Rowena, has taken the hookers to a fancy restaurant for a meal. The girls don’t belong there. A waiter agrees. The witch performs a spell which soon has waiters bringing them food and drink–for free.
Crowley learns Gerald opened a whore house in the king of Hell’s name, through Raul. They hoped to get up the number of souls sold. Tacky, says Crowley. Some witch knocked out the operation easily, and he possessed the nearest meat suit ASAP, to let Crowley know.
The brothers track the spell used on Raul to the one witch who created it–Rowena.
Rowena informs the girls that she is one of those witches born with the gift of powers. The coven threw Rowena out for being too extreme, but she’s going to teach the two of them anyway. The headwaiter drops his plates in slo-mo and his head explodes from the inside. Rowena urges the girls to leave.
Cole is torturing a demon to get info on Dean.
Hannah feels guilty about her vessel’s husband. Cas recalls how he had to take Jimmy Novak from his family–twice. It was hard but necessary. The mission comes first–always.
Sam and Dean get the story of the headwaiter’s weird death. They learn the witch was there, with two friends. The witch has been murdering at five star hotels in the area. They will investigate.
Hannah is done. She is going to let her meat suit go, and the mission, too. Humans were their original mission. She’s felt passions, hungers, working with Cas. All of that was nothing like she felt when she felt Caroline screaming for her husband. It’s time to step aside. She kisses Cas’ cheeks and says goodbye.
Her grace flies away and Caroline falls against Cas. She knows Cas.
The girls are ready for their first spell. It’s demons who gag Rowena. They run into Sam and Dean. There’s a fight. Stabbing. Rowena turns one girl into a beast, who attacks Sam and Dean. Rowena runs away with the other girl. Sam sends Dean after Rowena and the other girl. The other girl is upset her friend is going to die. She punches Rowena. Dean aims a gun at Rowena. Cole aims a gun at Dean. Dean is forced to drop the gun and let the witch escape. Dean tries to tell Cole he isn’t a demon. Holy water elicits no smoke. Dean isn’t a demon and wasn’t when he killed Cole’s father, who was a liver eating creature when Dean killed him years ago. They beat the crap out of each other, but with Dean being human, it’s a fairer fight. Dean wins again. He explains to Cole exactly what he is, a monster-hunter, and that Cole’s father was a monster. Dean gives Cole the option of killing him after he hears the story. The father could have killed Cole or his mother; that was NOT his father anymore.
Sam tries to get the other prostitute to fight being an animal, but she can’t. She dies with boiled brains, like the others. Sam goes to Dean and is all set to kill Cole, but Dean orders Sam to put down the gun. Sam finally does.
Dean says the people who love him pulled him back from the edge, that darkness, but it never goes away. “I’m past saving.” I know how my story ends–barrel of a gun or the edge of a knife–is it going to be today? Sam reminds Cole that he has a family–they need him to come back, and come back whole. Cole is in tears as he hands Dean back his gun. It’s a powerful scene. Does Dean really believe this?
Caroline returns to her husband, who welcomes her back joyfully as Cas watches from the car.
He goes on a laptop computer and looks up Jimmy Novak, who comes up missing.
Cole drives away. He’s going home. Rowena is in the wind. Sam asks Dean about what he said earlier about being past saving. Did he mean it? “No, I was just telling Cole what he needed to hear”, insists Dean. Sam doesn’t look entirely sure he believes his brother.
Gerald proudly reports to Crowley that they captured Rowena and have been torturing her. They can finish her off, if he wants. Crowley is pissed off–does he want a medal for cleaning up the mess HE made??? Everyone working for him is an incompetent infant! He enters his dungeon to see Rowena, who is hanging up, blood dripping down her lip. She opens her eyes. “The king at last!” she taunts upon seeing him–“the king of what?–Lilliput?–I heard you were short, but. . . ” They stare at each other, Crowley completely flummoxed. “Well?” she demands–“get to it–time for the coup de grace!–sweet boy, somethin’ the matter with ya?–cat got your tongue, hm?–meow!”.
“Mother?” says Crowley.
1. OMG! Rowena is Crowley’s mother? What do you all think of that? The accent should have given it away, right?
2. So now we know why Dean killed Cole’s father. Liver eating monster, huh? Gross! Do you think we’ll be seeing Cole again? Maybe he’ll want to take up the hunting life.
3. So Hannah left Cas. Will she take on a new meatsuit? What do you think? Was she just feeling sorry for Caroline? Will she return to heaven?
4. What about Cas and Jimmy? Will he give second thoughts to his meatsuit?
5. Do you think Dean means what he said to Cole? Was he lying to Sam? The scene made me so sad.
I liked this ep very much, and give it a 9. How about you?
