DJ Qualls… that is all…
First off, I love the whole “Supernatural” book series thing. It was a great way to help bring the awesome Supernatural fans into the story. I loved the first Supernatural book episode, the second one and so on and so forth. I live for these episodes.
Now to the recap:
So Dean is at a strip club, pouring his heart out to some busty Hooters-esque type girl when he gets a call from Sam telling him to meet him at some church. Dean shows up and what’s going on? Oh nothing, just Sam marrying Becky (the girl who is obsessed with the ‘Supernatural’ books). Needless to say Dean is confused but Sam says it’s true love and they are headed back to Pine Creek, Delaware, Becky’s home town.
So when we arrive in Pine Creek, we find out that Becky’s high school reunion is coming up and she goes to sign up. Outside of the high school, Becky runs into a dear friend of hers named Guy. The two have a conversation that makes it very obvious that Guy is about to be our big baddie of the episode. He’s a wiccan, and he slips a vial filled with a mysterious liquid into Becky’s hand. And it’s free… and he’s too nice… and flags are going up and alarm bells are going off in my head.
Cut to a baseball field where a guy gets pummeled in the head with a bunch of baseballs during batting practice. Um, ow…
Back at Becky’s apartment, Becky has slipped into something a little less comfortable and little easier to rip off when it appears that Sam is snapping out of whatever kind of delusion that he’s in. Becky worms her way onto his lap to kiss him while sneakily placing the elixir into his drink. She forces him to drink it and it’s back to lovey dovey Sam again.
Hey! Now Dean’s in town! He soon realizes that there is a case in Pine Creek and goes to visit Sam with a peace offering: Waffle maker. When Dean enters the apartment he discovers that Sam and Becky are already on the case. They discover that people’s are starting to come true and then they die soon after. Sam basically gives Dean the brush off which prompts Dean to call Bobby, who hooks Dean up with a new partner: Garth (played by the awesome DJ Qualls).
Dean and Garth go to an office building where a man has recently been promoted to CEO and who do they run into? Sam and Becky. Sam/Becky say that the guy is clean but Dean/Garth want to go question him anyway. Dean and Garth find out that it actually wasn’t the guy’s dream to become a CEO but it was his wifes. Cut to the lobby where the wife is almost smashed by a chandelier (why is it always a chandelier?) but luckily Dean saves her. The two question her about how she got her husband made into the CEO and she tells him that she traded her soul for the promotion.
Back at Becky’s apartment… Sam is once again starting to come out of his daze and Becky realizes that she doesn’t have anymore of the elixir. So what does she do? She whacks Sam on the head with the waffle maker that Dean got them (and I was so hoping for a ‘Chocolat’ reference right her: “Who says I can’t cook?” (or something to that effect)). Sam wakes up to find himself strapped to a bed (kinky) at a cabin of Becky’s. She gags him and gets a hold of Guy, telling him that she needs more elixir. Sam overhears and says not to trust him but Becky gags him and is off.
Trusting Guy? Ya, not you’re brightest move here Becky. Turns out he wants something for the elixir this time. Her soul. Dun dun DUN! Guy is a crossroads demon! He says that he’ll make her an offer that he has never made anyone else: 25 years of Sam loving her in exchange for her never telling the Winchesters that he was there. She has to think about it. REALLY?! A big bad demon is telling you he wants your soul and you have to THINK about it?! I guess she’s really desperate…
Becky goes back to Sam and pours her heart out to him. Sam is still pissed (is she really surprised?!).
Cut back to the high school where Becky says she’ll take the deal, But it’s all a ruse! She manages to trap Guy into a symbol on the floor. But wait, Guy has an assistant. Chaos ensues, Guy gets out, he and his assistant pummel the Winchesters for a bit until Becky stabs the assistant with the demon killing dagger and Dean has a hold on Guy. Crowley (yay! Mark Sheppard!) pops out of nowhere and is pissed at the Demon Guy (haha, get it!) for cheating the system and the poor humans out of their deals. He plans on making an example out of him. Crowley also tells the boys that he’s been telling his demons to lay off of them. He wants the Winchesters to kill the Levianthons. He mega loathes them. Dean hands over Guy, they vanish.
Cut to the end. Becky signs annulment papers, her and Sam’s marriages has now been annulled. Garth gets hugged by Dean when Dean tells him that he actually doesn’t suck. Awes.
Garth: “He said you’d be surly and premenstrual working with me.”
Becky: “Honestly, the only place people understood me was the message boards. They were grumpy and overly literal, but at least we shared a common passion. And I’ll take it.”
Garth: “Blueberry vodka. The answer to all life’s problems.”
Crowley: “I only have one rule: make a deal, keep it. There’s a reason we don’t call our chits in early: consumer confidence. This isn’t Wall Street, this is Hell. We have a little something called integrity.”
Overall Grade: B. I love Meta Supernatural, I really do. But the whole Becky bit got old after a while. While it had its moments it just wasn’t working for me. And as much as I love DJ Qualls, he was a poor man’s substitute for Castiel (whom I still miss SO bad).
