Sam wheels around a corner back to the teens and tells them that, indeed, there is no way out of the asylum. Sam's cell phone rings and he hears Dean's voice saying, "Sam, it's me. I see it. It's coming at me. I'm in the basement. Hurry up!" How can it not occur to Sam that that might not really be Dean? He asks the teens if either of them can handle a shotgun, and Gayvin nearly pees his pants at the suggestion. J.V. decides to try out for Varsity when she says that she can. Sam hands her the gun and tells her that it is filled with rock salt, and that if she sees something she should shoot. She cocks the gun.
Downstairs, we get a shot of the "Boiler Room" door -- from the wrong side so it is spelled backwards, so okay, okay, REDRUM REDRUM, number freaking twelve -- that Officer Crazy went through just before going, well, crazy. Sam walks a little less slowly than usual, yelling for Dean. His flashlight flickers and he taps on it, rather than remembering what he said last week about flickering lights being a sign of malevolent spirits, as a door creaks open behind him. He creeps slowly into the room with his rock salt gun pointing out in front of him. He notices a shadow of a figure behind a curtain and creeps over to it to fling it back. Nothing there. As he turns back from the curtain, a zombie Doc Brown suddenly appears. He tells Sam, "Don't be afraid, I'm going to make you all better," as he grabs each side of his head and makes poor Sammy's face turn all blue and electrified with rage.Commercials. The teens kneel in a hallway. J.V. Almost Varsity tells Gayvin that if they make it out there alive, "we are so breaking up." They hear a crash and see a shadow coming toward them. J.V. Almost Varsity jumps up and fires off a shot of rock salt at, it turns out, Dean, who ducks and looks totally freaked out. Aw, I don't think she's gonna make varsity after all. He asks why they're still there and where Sam is. Wah wah wah! The Three's Company mix-up plot comes to light as the kids tell Dean that Sam got a cell phone call from somebody claiming to be Dean in the basement. Dean leaves the teens of plot contrivance to go check shit out.
Basement. Dean walks and calls his brother. Sam does that instantly appearing thing that we know is a bad sign and tells Dean that he's okay. Dean asks if he knows that it wasn't him that called Sam's cell phone, and Sam bluffs (a little more skillfully this time!), "Yeah, I know. I think something lured me down here." Dean tells Sam that he thinks that someone is Dr. Ellicott and that the spirits were trying to tell them that. He continues to tell Sam that he found Ellicott's log book and that "apparently he was experimenting on his patients. Awful stuff. Makes lobotomies look like a couple of aspirin." Sam asks, "But it was the patients who rioted?" and Dean replies, "Yeah, they were rioting against Dr. Ellicott. Dr. Feelgood was working on some sort of like extreme rage therapy. He thought if he could get his patients to vent their anger that they'd be cured of it. Instead it made them worse and worse." What an appropriate story line for Thanksgiving time! To express or not to express your familial rage. Dean has put it all together: Ellicott's spirit is doing the same thing to the people who've found their way into the South Wing over the years, "making them so angry they become homicidal." Dean tells Sam they have to find his bones and burn them. Sam, playing the role of the dumb rock in this scene, asks, "How? The police never found his body." Dean tells him that he found out about some secret room where the doctor would experiment on his patients, and displays a little familiarity with extreme rage himself by hypothesizing that if he were a patient, he'd drag Ellicott down to that room to do a little work on him himself. Sam is really starting to stonewall here, telling Dean that this plan sounds a bit "crazy."
