    This week, it’s Sam and Dean versus the attack of the Disney Princess stripper. Actually, it’s a siren posing as a stripper, who uses names like Jasmine, Aurora, Ariel and Belle. The siren produces a hormone, oxytocin, that leads men to kill their wives, girlfriends, even their mothers. Whatever happened to the good old days of steering ships towards rocks?

    Dean starts out quite happy with the case, telling Sam, “Strippers, Sammy. Strippers. We are on an actual case involving strippers. Finally.” But like all things on Supernatural, it quickly turns sour. Federal Agent Nick Monroe shows up, which leads to a funny scene involving our dear Bobby. Say it with me: Yay, Bobby! So, a phone call is put in to Sam and Dean’s superior, to confirm their authority on the case and Bobby answers the call from home. Turns out Bobby has a wall of phones, one for each important department, FBI, CIA, you name it. The man’s a genius. Agent Nick bonds with Dean as Nick knows all about the Impala and Dean’s music. This would be a giant red flag to Dean, except he’s so happy that someone is interested in his opinion and his thoughts on anything since Sam is emotionally M.I.A.

    Speaking of Sam, he’s busy sneaking around, calling Ruby on the phone while Dean pretends he’s asleep. Sam is discovering new levels of sneaky as the weeks go on. He meets with Dr. Cara Roberts, who is analyzing the blood work involved in the case. Now Sam, meeting with her once is business, two times is shifty, more than two times is downright shady. Not surprisingly, Sam has sex with the good doctor Cara. What does surprise me is how much it annoyed me. I know we all love a Winchester sex scene but I consider that Winchester taken by Ruby. I also know we all have varying opinions on Ruby (mine is of the “I didn’t realize how much I liked old Ruby until we got new Ruby” variety) but I consider Sam and Ruby to be in a relationship, albeit a screwed up one. This would be Sam cheating on Ruby and I don’t know who this lying, cheating, cold Sam is anymore. Yeah, yeah, I know that’s a big running theme this season but it bothers me greatly.

    Dean’s bromance with Nick goes wrong when Dean forgets everything he’s learned in previous episodes of Supernatural (namely Dream a Little Dream of Me) and drinks a drink that Nick hands him. Dumb, Winchester. Dumb. Agent Nick is the siren, posing as what Dean needed most, a brother who looks up to him and one he could trust. Sam shows up at the motel where Dean and Nick are waiting and Dean quickly grabs Sam and holds a knife to his throat. You know, the really big, kill you dead knife he sometimes keeps under his pillow. Nick doses Sam with the same hormone and trouble ensues. Nick tells them he knows they’ve got a lot of things to get off their chests and encourages them to do so, which seems healthy, except for the part where only one will survive. Dean tells Sam that the Sam he knows is gone and Sam counters that Dean is too weak and is holding him back. Sam hits a nerve when he accuses Dean of whining about what he did in Hell and Dean throws the uber big, super deadly knife at Sam’s head. Sam ducks and the back and forth mutual face punching ensues. Sam throws Dean across the room, Dean tackles Sam through the motel door and then Dean grabs the in case of emergency ax hanging on the wall. Dean is about to hack Sam to bits when Bobby, good old Bobby, stabs Dean in the shoulder with a bronze knife and then hurls the knife at the fleeing siren, stabbing him in the back. The spell is broken and Bobby saves the day, again. He’s like a Powerpuff Girl.

    Yet again, the last few minutes are reserved for drinking (soda, this time) and angsty reflection. I’ve come to dread those last few minutes. Both say they didn’t mean the things they say but in a totally half-hearted way. Yeah, we’re not headed anywhere good this season.

    So, what did you think? Are you as worried about Sam and Dean as I am? I think last season’s finale is going to seem like a cakewalk when we’re done with this season. Share your TwoCents with me in the comments!
