The fan segues into a flashback, the sound of its clunking melding with the clunking of an old air conditioner in some Texas motel's office. Sam walks into the office with the dog he ran over. The pooch is walking under his own power now. Sam seems surprised to find a teenaged boy behind the desk. They talk about the kid's dad and his cancer treatments. They know each other's names and act like friends, so Sam's been at this particular motel for a stretch. He pays for another week in advance. He starts to say something about being between jobs, but gets distracted by the noisy air conditioner. The kid offers him a job if he knows how to fix it.
Back in the present, Sam fiddles with the bathroom fan and turns it back on. It runs smoothly. Sam smiles like, "Yeah, I still got it."
Eagle Harbor. The sky is clear and blue over the water, dark and ominous over the distant mountains. Dean pulls up along a beat-up old truck and checks the covered bed as if he knows exactly what he's looking for. He finds a small cooler inside filled with blood bags. On first watching, I found this very confusing. Like, what are the chances he'd find a cooler full of blood in the first truck he finds? Then I realized it's Benny's truck and he probably told Dean where to find his necessities. Although why, if Benny could crawl his way to a fuel barge, could he not crawl back to his truck? Also, there's zero ice in this cooler, so that blood's got to be pretty rank by now. Dean shakes his head like he can't quite believe he's doing this, but he's nothing if not a trooper of a friend. He climbs down into the barge and finds Benny propped up near the entryway, unconscious, covered in blood. Dean calls out to him, worried, and rushes to his side. "You're not looking good," Dean says. Benny stirs and laughs weakly. "Up yours." How lucky for Benny that Dean was just a state away and not in, say, Maine.
Benny takes a commercial break to get himself cleaned up. Dean has apparently dragged him into an office somewhere near the shipyard. Dean waits in the office with the cooler and half a dozen empty blood bags. When Benny comes out of the bathroom, he's changed into fresh clothes and looks none the worse for wear. Dean is impressed. "Wow. You look okay." To Benny, it's no big deal, but Dean can't get over it. "Dude. You were double hamstrung," he says. Benny tells him that most wounds short of amputation will heal up. "I'll be a hundred percent before you know it," he says. He gathers up his belongings and extends his hand to Dean in farewell. "Thank you, brother." Dean shakes his hand, but he's not content to leave his friend to whatever madness he's obviously trying to get himself into. He wants to know what's going on. It's sort of a repeat of Sam and Dean's earlier scene, but without all the shouting and accusations and prissy looks. "You and that whole 'friend' thing," Benny sighs.
