The Good Ole Boys are back on Supernatural. In “Last Call” Dean (Jensen Ackles) reminisces with an old friend about their hunting days. And Sam (Jared Padalecki) has another brush with death after Castiel (Misha Collins) tries to heal his wound from Chuck (Rob Benedict).
The bunker is getting just a little crowded with Eileen (Shoshannah Stern) hanging out with Sam. Dean knows when he’s the third wheel. His only request is that Sam put a sock on the door if things get hot and heavy with him and Eileen. Dean decides to go for a drive instead. What he doesn’t tell Sam is that he found a case of a missing girl in Texas.
After Dean leaves, Sam and Eileen do some research and things get awkward. Just when Sam is about to make his move, Castiel arrives. He asks if they found any sign of Chuck. Of course they haven’t, they’ve been busy making eyes at each other.
Castiel has an idea of how to find Chuck. Through Sam’s gunshot wound in his shoulder. He believes that part of Sam is inside of Chuck, and not the other way around. Cas thinks if he can heal the wound, they will be able to find God. But when he tries, he throws Sam across the room, knocking him out.
Cas tries to call Dean, but Dean’s kind of busy. So the angel calls the next best thing…a shaman. Cas calls Sergei (Dimitri Vantis) for help and threatens to kill him if he doesn’t. If you recall Sergei gave Cas a vial of Gabriel’s grace to save Jack. It didn’t work, but Cas still owes Sergei a favor. Cas says Sergei needs to make up for his trickery.
Sergei shows up and uses his magic to find out what’s wrong with Sam. He’s dying. When Cas tried to heal him, it stretched his soul, but Sergei can’t see where. If Sam’s soul snaps, he dies. Sergei can help him, but he wants something first. The Key to Death. It’s hidden somewhere in the bunker.
Cas and Eileen both threaten Sergei if he doesn’t help. Cas knew he couldn’t trust Sergei, that’s why he had Bobby (Jim Beavers) watch Sergei’s daughter. One word from Cas and the girl is dead. Sergei brings Sam back, pulling his soul back together. He says Cas made an enemy of the shaman. But Sergei likes the new Angel, saying he seems more Russian.
Meanwhile Dean has a weird run in with the local Sheriff in Texoma, Texas who tells Dean that he has movie star looks. Dean found the story about the missing girl on the web. Her friend says the girl was raptured while the friend was drunk. He makes his way to a bar called Swayze’s and the owner is a former hunter, Lee Webb (Christian Kane). The two used to hunt together when Sam was in college. Now Lee owns the place.
They have a few beers, a few laughs and finally…we get to hear Dean sing the theme song to the Dukes of Hazzard, Waylon Jennings’ ‘Good Ol’ Boys.’ Lee knew John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) well. They toast the wrinkley old guy.
Lee asks about Dean’s case and decides to join him. They hear a commotion in the bar. Lee implemented the ‘no holds barred’ rules. Dean and Lee have to teach some guys a lesson when they start harrassing a young woman. Needless to say, Dean has the time of his life, throwing people out of the bar.
The young girl is the girl who’s best friend was raptured. She is very sure that her friend was raptured…and her car was too. Dean says he needs to find the car. Lee says it’s probably in the lake, but one of his waitresses says the car could be in the junk yard.
They split up and Dean finds the car and the body of the missing girl in the trunk. He hears someone walk up behind him with a gun. It’s Lee. Lee knows him out and takes him home. Lee stopped hunting after a job in Arizona. That’s where he came to the realizations that hunters couldn’t help humanity anymore.
Lee also found something in Arizona. A monster that feeds on human blood. Not a vampire, more like a merman/demon. As long as Lee feeds the monster, the monster gives him money. That’s why he’s so successful in Texas. Lee leaves Dean to be eaten by his cash cow.
Come y’all..it’s Dean. So of course he is able to get away from the monster and kill it. He has an old fashioned Texas shootout with Lee in the bar. Yes, there was a shotgun underneath the bar. The two old friends fight and Dean comes out on top. Before Lee dies, he asks why Dean cares. Someone has to.
Dean comes home and Sam is fine. He tells the group about seeing Chuck while he was knocked out. He knows that Chuck is weak. Sam can’t say way, but he knows it. And now Sam is more confident than ever that they can defeat God.
Well that was fun. Watching Dean get to live out his cowboy dreams. Something tells me that Jensen Ackles has actually had a night like that. Maybe not the shootout and killing your friend part, but the singing on stage and just chilling out with an old friend.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Christian Kane. If you’re not familiar with him, he played a popular villain on the WB series Angel. He’s kind of a big deal.
And! It’s about time that Dean got out of the bunker. I don’t understand why he wouldn’t tell Sam that he was going out on a case. Why doesn’t he want Sam to know he needs to hunt? See…it’s times like this…when the brothers aren’t really talking that bad things happen.
