Dean, fed up, turns his face heavenward (if such a thing is possible in Purgatory) and groans, "You two are killing me!" The bickering children settle down for the moment. Castiel has to admit that he actually agrees with Benny. "The risk of crossing Purgatory with a seraph... it's less than strategic." He's also doubtful that he can even pass through the escape hatch. Benny loves hearing this. He explains to Dean that as a living human, he can pass through. Or, as he puts it, Purgatory wants to spit him out, which is what will power their escape. Benny himself was once human so he's pretty sure he can make it through somehow, too. But Castiel... "I don't think it will work for me," Castiel finishes for him. Benny starts to chime in with his agreement, but Dean cuts him off. "Listen to me, you undead blood junkie. I'm the one with the mojo, I'm the one with the plan." Benny falls silent. Dean turns to Castiel. "We're going to shove your ass back through the eye of that needle if it kills all three of us." He's getting his angels and camels mixed up, but his heart's in the right place.
That brings us back to the present in Eagle Harbor. "Good to know you're as dumb as ever," Benny says to Dean. "Yeah, well, some things never change," Dean says. He asks Benny why he's fighting with his own kind. Benny says the vampires he killed were from his old nest. He's going after the vampire who made him. Dean is surprised. "Well, don't get me wrong. I'm down with the hunting, but... why?" he asks. Benny answers, "Kill him before he kills me -- again." Dean gives him a long, considering look, like maybe he doesn't know if it's quite that simple, but he doesn't say anything.
Back to Sam in Oregon. He's taken his research outside, but gets distracted when he notices that the ice machine across the parking lot is out of order. This leads him to another of his weird Instagram flashbacks. He remembers fixing the ice machine at the Texas motel, with the adorable dog by his side. For his next job, the kid at the desk sends him to fix the backed-up sink in room 118. The room is empty when Sam gets to work, although strewn about the counters are signs of plentiful drinking. There are wine bottles, beer cans, shot glasses, tequila and a margarita glass. The door opens and the crabby lady vet walks in. She sees Sam under the sink and freaks out. "What the hell are you doing here?" Instead of letting him answer, she just keeps plowing on. "I knew there was something off about you, with your creepy Army/Navy and your sideburns!" I want to like her just for dissing Sam's sideburns, but instead I find her rude and off-putting. After all, we the viewers have had years to form an opinion about Sam's poor facial hair choices, whereas the vet is making a snap judgment. Sam finally explains that he's fixing the sink. She stares at him like he's crazy.
