She looks at them both with a smile and comments how much they've grown. Especially Dean, who was one goofy looking kid. If anyone saw what Jensen looked like in Days of Our Lives, she's right. I know hardcore Dean fans took huge offense to Missouri constantly picking on Dean in this episode, but I think it serves a purpose. It means to show she can see through his tough exterior and isn't buying the act. She is seeing the real sides of both boys and acting accordingly. I don't think she means it as disrespect at all. If anything, she's showing Dean she isn't going to fall for his crap.
Sam grabs Sam's hand and her face falls. "Oh Sam, I'm so sorry about your girlfriend. And your father, he's missing?" Sam asks how she knew that, and she says he was thinking it. Dean asks where John is. She doesn't know. "You don't know? You're supposed to be a psychic, right?" "Boy, do you see me sawing some bony tramp in half, you think I'm a magician? I may be able to read thoughts and sense some energies in a room but I just can't pull facts out of thin air."
Missouri tells them sit, but warns Dean not to put his foot on her coffee table or she's going to whack him with a spoon. "I didn't do anything." "You were thinking it." Sam actually smiles over her picking on Dean and then asks about John, and she mentions he visited her a few days after the fire. She told him what was out there in the dark. "I guess you could say, I pulled back the curtains for him." Dean asks if she knows what killed their mom. No. She went to the house and whatever killed Mary was long gone, but it was evil.
Back to Jenny, who's feeling bad about the plumber, but not enough to be held liable since she hardly has money to pay for that. Shouldn't the guy have workers insurance? Anyway, Jenny leaves the Ritchie alone for a minute. Uh oh. Back to Missouri, who doesn't understand why they think something bad in back in the house. She's been keeping an eye on the place since the fire, and nothing has happened. Why is it happening now? Sam postulates Jessica's death, Dad missing and what's happening at the house is a sign that something is starting. You are so right about that Sammy!
Back to Ritchie in the playpen, and something unknown unlatches it. Then it unlatches and opens the refrigerator. Come on guys, picking on young children is not cool. I think you see what's coming. Boy goes to refrigerator, sees juice in the back of it, climbs in and the door slams shut, latching him in. Bastards. Mom comes back, sees boy missing and frantically searches. Luckily, it's only a minute before she sees milk pouring out from the fridge. She opens it and pulls out the now freaked out kid. Great, he'll never be able to open a refrigerator again.
There's a knock on the door and she answers with boy still clinging to her in her arms. It's Sam, Dean and Missouri. Dean says they want to show Missouri the old place, but Jenny tells them it's not a good time. No, I can't imagine it is. Dean tries to talk but Missouri cuffs him in the back of the head. "Give the poor girl a break, can't you tell she's upset?" Missouri tells Jenny Dean means well but isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. Well I don't know about that. No, I'm not making any suggestive sharp tool comments. She addresses Jenny's fears, pointing out she knows something's in that house that wants to hurt her family. She says they are people that can help, but she's going to have to trust them. That gets them in the door.
They search little girl's room and Missouri mentions that if there's any activity it would be there. Sam asks why. Oh come on Sam, you haven't figured it out? It's your old nursery dummy. Missouri feels around while Dean pulls out his homemade EMF reader. Oh, do you remember the days of the EMF reader? I'm getting nostalgic. Missouri calls Dean an amateur (ha!) and then says whatever is there didn't kill their mother. Then she goes in the closet and stumbles on something else. There are two spirits there.
Missouri mentions the problem. Real evil visited that house, and it left wounds. Sometimes wounds get infected. The place is a magnet for paranormal energy. It's attracted a poltergeist, and it's a nasty one. It won't rest until Jenny and her family is dead. Duh, duh, dun! Sam asks about the second spirit. Missouri can't make out the second one. Wait until they find out what it is! Dean proclaims no one is dying in that house ever again. How do they stop it?
Next at Missouri's place they're putting together what looks like hex bags. She rattles off ingredients, plus "few other odds and ends." In other words, they don't want you trying this at home. The plan sounds simple enough. They're going to put them in the north, south, east, and west corners on each floor of the house. Dean mentions Jenny won't like the fact that they're making holes in the wall. "She'll live," Missouri wisely points out. These bags will purify the house completely. They'll each take a floor but have to work fast, for the spirits will figure out what they're doing. It'll get bad. Don't worry Missouri, danger is their middle names.
Next is the really intense part! Missouri sends Jenny and the kids off to the movies. Understandably so, Jenny doesn't like the idea of leaving strangers alone in her house. What do you think they're going to steal? You aren't exactly a Rockefeller. They go anyway after Missouri assures her.
Sam takes upstairs and man does he look like a pup in this episode. He's really manned up since then. He has his hammer and starts tapping a hole in the wall. Uh Sam, Missouri said fast. Start pounding! Too late, for the electrical chord for the lamp starts slithering its way behind him. Dean gets the kitchen, and does the same casual tapping. Missouri looks around in the basement, finds a corner, throws the bag in and suddenly gets pinned by a fast sliding desk. Dean hears something in the kitchen and ducks just in time to escape a flying knife. Then in quick thinking he shields himself with the kitchen table right when a whole drawer full of knives come flying at him. Cool!
Sam isn't so swift though, as the chord wraps tightly around his neck, and he can't loosen it. Sam chokes and struggles to get the bag in the wall but can't, losing the battle. Uh, anyone notice while Sam gasps his shirt has rode up enough where we can see some bare belly and he's wearing button fly jeans? No, I didn't catch that either, for I don't pay attention to such trivial stuff. No, I'm not drooling, why do you ask?
