'Supernatural' recap: I Want To Rip My Face Off
So, Sam and Dean spend the first half of the episode racing from one end of the city to the other, scooping up evil tea kettles and nefarious gramophones and deeply wicked gentlemen's magazines and whatnot, until their focus somehow shifts from the cursed objects themselves to that rapacious real estate broker, and it turns out Richard Roman's sent a couple of his toothy minions to buy up a significant portion of Portland's main commercial district. Why? Well, according to one of the minions, The Leviathans plan to establish a research facility on the site, with the ultimate goal of eradicating cancer from the planet's human population. And because Our Intrepid Heroes just buy that explanation and motor on off towards their next adventure with nary a peep of protest or disbelief, I guess we have to, as well. They even leave the more helpful of the minions alive, which is just asinine, but whatever. We'll just assume it'll all become clear later in the season, I suppose.
In other news, Lucifer's apparently still nattering away in Darling Sammy's remarkably healthy ear, but because Mark Pellegrino is nowhere to be seen in this episode, that whole subplot ends up being about as exciting as watching Jared Padalecki fall asleep -- which we actually have to do for a minute or two, believe it or not. Oh, and Frank Devereaux might have been whacked after making too many connections between too many of The Leviathans' other earthly projects. Try not to let your grief over this last development overwhelm you. After all, we still have seven episodes left before this season finally ends.
