Did you miss me as much as I missed you? Here is my full on Supernatural review of “Shut Up, Dr. Phil”.
Ok Supernatural fans we are stepping into episode 7.05, “Shut Up, Dr. Phil”, in a high dollar hair salon where a conceited woman named Wendy is on her cell phone. It is ok because she does not last very long after getting under the hair dryer and has a freak accident. Ever notice how hot it is under one of those things? Sorry, I had to ask.
She starts getting really hot and for some reason, cannot get out from under it. She yells, but no one can hear her over all of the hair dryers and other noise. The foils in her hair start sparking and smoke is coming out from under the dryer. Gross!!! Her male stylist comes to check on her and knows something is wrong because of the smoke and her body is limp in the chair. There were chunks of meat and hair stuck to the inside of the dryer. Burn!!! Bye bye conceited priss! I thought it was hilarious how her stylist screamed being a man and all.
Dean is sleeping and dreaming, more like having a nightmare in bits. He sees Castiel (Misha Collins) walking into the water, then the dream flashes to Sam in the warehouse losing sanity because of Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino), then he relives the killing Amy (Jewel Staite) experience. He awakens and notices Sam is not in his bed.
I was so excited about the next scene where Dean is researching and Sam comes in from running. Why was I so excited you might ask? I will tell you why. Jared Padalecki (Sam), tweeted raw footage of this scene the day before it aired from his official twitter account, @jarpad, and it was hysterical! I was cackling at my desk. The footage he sent must be from the gag reel because most of it was cut out. I would attach the link, but it was since removed. Continuing on…
Dean is on the computer researching the next possible job. He sees Sam running outside and it looks like it bothers him for some reason. Sam comes in from his run and Dean says, “Somebody better be chasing you!” Dean tells Sam about the woman that was fried under the hair dryer and about a man that was boiled in a hot tub in Prosperity, Indiana within the last two weeks. They know it is worth checking into because of how odd those incidents are. Dean is acting somewhat strange and Sam asks him about it. Dean says that he is the same Dean, but Sam is the new person.
Briefly, Chet (Sean Owen Roberts) the Leviathan is shown on the phone and it is obvious that it is with one of his bosses. He is gaining on the Winchester brothers. He is only about a day and a half behind them now. He needed some refueling so he will feed on the dead man in his trunk. It will not be much longer before he catches up with Sam and Dean.
The guys have made it to Prosperity, Indiana to investigate the bizarre deaths. Sam is interviewing Wendy’s sister as FBI Agent Sambora. She explains that Wendy had no enemies and in fact, everyone loved her. Meanwhile, Dean checks out the salon to look for clues as to what caused this freak hair dryer accident. He finds a peculiar coin that is not American. The brothers talk on the phone, as usual, and need to get together to figure it all out.
At a construction site in town a worker heads into a portable bathroom and begins to hear the sound of a compressor. He knew there were no generators around and nothing was plugged in. When he opens the door, there is a nail gun hovering only a few feet in front of him. He just knows this in not going to end well. It loads him up and down with nails including one right through the cheek. He is pinned by the nails to the wall of the portable bathroom. The nail gun is not done with him yet and he knows it. Two more shots!!! Talk about getting nailed. Bye bye construction man!
Sam and Dean show up on the scene to check things out. Guess what Dean finds on the floor of the porta-potty? That is right, a weird coin. Law enforcement tells Dean that this man was a pillar of the community. Sam finds that all of the victims are connected because they had been working on a shopping center project together. The only person still alive that is connected is the developer, Don Stark (James Marsters).
Dean and Sam go to the art auction house where they may find Don Stark. Bobby emails Sam with information on the coins Dean found. The writing on the coins is Romanian Cyrillic used only in the mid 15th to the 19th centuries. Dean asks Don some questions about his business. He notices how Don looks at his assistant, Jenny Klein, with a little more admiration than he would like to admit. Sam asks for the restroom, but we know that just means he wants to sneak off to take a look around. Sam observes that almost all of Don’s wife, Maggie’s (Charisma Carpenter) clothing is gone and does not appear she would be returning any time soon. He also found some “hex junk in her stuff”.
Now the guys know that Maggie is a witch. They are piecing together that she is scorned because Don had an affair with Wendy, and she is killing the people that Don was recently connected to. They go to Maggie’s new house to see if they find anymore incriminating items. She is not at home, so Dean goes inside and Sam keeps watch outside.
Dean discovers pictures of each victim with blood, symbols, etc. in one of the bedroom closets. Jenny Klein, Don’s assistant, is next to be killed. Uh oh…Maggie is pulling in the driveway and Sam has to think fast. He tells her he needs to speak with her, she blows him off and she starts walking to the front door. He knows Dean is still inside and not knowing what else to do he shakes her car so the alarm goes off to alert him. Dean is able to hide and then make it out without her noticing. Phew!!!
Dean tells Sam that Jenny is next on Maggie’s hit list. They rush over to Jenny’s house to try to save her. Maggie is saying a spell to take Jenny out. Jenny is at home baking some cupcakes. She looks like she loves baking with her apron and all. She takes a nice bite out of one of her scrumptious cupcakes only to find blood dripping down her arm. She looks and sees a small heart beating in the cupcake. Eewww! She is choking and is spitting up blood. Dean kicks the door open. Sam is looking for the Romanian coin that must be in the kitchen somewhere. He finds it on top of a cabinet and shoots it to destroy it. Jenny can breathe now. Another life saved!
Jenny is completely freaking out about the hearts in her cupcakes. (See funny quotes section below) Sam tells her she was hexed and she needs to get out of town. Sam also tells her she may want to cool things down between her and Don. She is shocked and says that he is her boss and nothing more.
Now back at the art auction house, Maggie is preparing for an event. Sue (Meredith McGeachie), Maggie’s friend, is the one that told her that Don was cheating on her. There is definitely something strange about Sue. Don comes in wanting to speak with Maggie and Sue sees him. He tells her that he knows she has told Maggie lies about him because of the one mistake he made.
Don tells Maggie that enough is enough. He knows she is the one responsible for the deaths. Don feels Maggie was too busy for him between the art, the charity, and her evil friend Sue. Maggie feels there are three involved in their marriage, her, Don and Don’s ego. Don mentions the two FBI agents that came and asked questions. She said she knows they are hunters, not agents and she will handle it.
Don tells her everything needs to stop. He walks outside and sees the statue of his face shakes and cracks. The brothers pull up just in time to see it happen. Bobby calls to tell the boys what he thinks will kill Maggie.
While Maggie is practicing her speech for the art auction, her creepy friend Sue tells her how perfect everything is and touches her arm in a ‘I might dig you kind of way’. Maggie remembers to check on some food.
Dean is sitting down in the motel room about to gob into some pie. My SPN family knows that Dean loves him some pie and it is his absolute favorite food. Sam walks in and throws a nasty, stank bag of chicken feet next to Dean’s pie. This is one of the ingredients needed to complete the recipe that can kill Maggie. Sam has ruined pie for Dean, yet again!!!
Don is having a little witch fun of his own. Maggie hands Sue a drink with an olive and they toast. Sue pulls the toothpick with the olive out to eat it and sees a human eyeball. Bahahahaha! She kind of deserved that. Maggie knows Don is responsible and sees all of the paintings running and being ruined.
Sue assures Maggie that she will get through this because she has people who love her and Don cannot take that away. She spoke too soon. A silver platter floats in the air then flies toward her neck and decapitates her. She was really creepy and may have deserved that too.
Dean and Sam show up to the auction house and see that something bloody has occurred. They realize they are not dealing with one witch, but two. They know Don is a witch too. Dean refers to this as “full on War of the Roses”. They know what they have to do. Chet has caught up with Sam and Dean. We see him watch them drive off from the auction house.
Sam and Dean are outside of Maggie’s house and they know they need both she and Don in the same place at the same time. He is already there and they see her drive up. She wants to have it out with Don over what happened at the auction house. Dean starts saying the spell and Sam throws the match in the dish. A bunch of smoke rises, but nothing happens. Maggie knows what they used and knows the chicken feet must not have been chilled. Remember the stinky chicken feet. They were putrid because they were not cold.
Don lets the brothers know they are going to die. Both he and Maggie start sprouting off a spell. Sam says it is a domestic dispute and if they cannot kill them they should counsel them. Although Dean knows he is not good at that, he tries to be therapeutic. Sam does too and I am laughing like crazy now because they look ridiculous trying this.
The episode should have been called “Shut up, Dr.’s Winchester”. Maggie and Don are throwing them around. She is mad they are defending Don and he is mad they are sucking up to Maggie. In between pain the brothers are making sense to Maggie and Don. She learns that Don did not have an affair with Jenny and that Wendy meant nothing to him. She was a mistake. They realize they could never kill each other because of how much they love one another. They kiss and the boys live to fight another day.
Dean and Sam arrive back to their motel. Guess who is there to welcome them? Yes, it is Chet, the Leviathan. He knocks Dean across the room and now lifts Sam up by the throat. Chet is not a large man by any means. Moose has got to be almost two times his size. All this tells us is that these Leviathans are full on stout!!! Something shocks Chet from behind. Wow, Don Stark saves the brothers from annihilation. He tells them to put him in a bottomless pit because the spell only lasts a couple of days. Don actually went there because Maggie had a hex on them in their room. A Romanian coin was under each of their mattresses. Don went there to save them from death and he did just that…two times over!
The brothers have Chet ready to transport to wherever Bobby is. Sam tries to talk to Dean again about what he is feeling, but Dean full on refuses.
When will Dean break down and be vulnerable with his Sam? When will Dean be honest about being eaten up with guilt, maybe not for killing Amy, but about lying to Sam about it? I feel the tears are coming and soon. Let us face the facts, these men cry beautifully.
The Impala’s license plate was shown, but not zoomed in on in this episode.
Funny quotes from this episode:
Sam: “Alright pick me up.”
Dean: “Why don’t you just run home Lance?”
Dean: “Yeah, I’ll be there in a minute.”
Jenny Klein: “There were tiny beating hearts in my cupcakes. There were hearts in my cupcakes. Hearts in my cupcakes! That’s never happened before. Hearts in my cupcakes!”
Dean: “Should I slug her?”
Sam: “Give it a second.”
Dean: “Somebody wanna call these things off? Scuse me?”
In case you are wondering, I will admit that I am a Samgirl! Please post your comments. I look forward to reading them. #SPNfamily
