'Supernatural' recap: The Hardy Boys Shoot Rainbows Out Of Their Ass
Fortunately, it takes very little time for Sam and Dean to link all three murders to the dreadful kiddies-only restaurant from which this episode takes its title, and here's where things really start to go south for poor Darling Sammy. As you'll no doubt recall, the dear lad suffers from an intense case of coulrophobia, and as Plucky Pennywhistle's relies rather heavily on the clown-themed amusements to keep its customer base satisfied, Darling Sammy is of course rendered nearly paralytic with fear the instant he sets foot in the wretched place. Luckily, Dashing El Deano's there to handle most of the investigative heavy lifting this week, and what he eventually discovers is this: A Plucky employee by the name of Howard has taken it upon himself to rid the world of lousy parents (and interfering janitors) by having children's worst fears come to life through the magic of hoodoo. In fact, Howard's about to set a robot with laser beams shooting out of its eyes on yet another sucky dad when Our Intrepid Heroes interfere with his nefarious plan, so Howard first sends a team of demonic clowns to slaughter Darling Sammy, after which he attempts to talk Dashing El Deano to death. Dean, of course, has long since grown impervious to such nonsense, and eventually hoists Howard with the latter's own mojo by summoning the ginger nerd's own worst fear at an especially crucial moment in this evening's action.
And in the end, Our Intrepid Heroes chit-chat about their goddamned feelings -- again, some more -- for the better part of two and a half minutes. I'd tell you what they said to each other, but seriously: I'd fallen asleep by that point. Besides, does anyone really care anymore?
