...watching the suspiciously fuzzy and tracking-impaired video of the dead hunter's last moments. You'd think that tracking problem on a bit of digital video would set Dean's Spidey-sense to tingling due to the fact that he knows the mere presence of supernatural beasties tends to screw around with the functioning of electronic devices, but I suppose his concerns for Sam at the moment are blocking his better judgment. As the boys watch the action unfold on a flat-screen computer monitor -- Sam sitting at the desk, Dean leaning over Sam's remarkably broad shoulders -- Abusive Drunken Action Sammy kicks the soon-to-be-deceased around the room for a while before dragging his semi-conscious victim across the carpet to O.J. the guy's neck. Unfortunately for Raoul, the video footage goes particularly fuzzy right at the point where delirious gouts of blood should come shooting from the dead guy's neck, so he is denied. "Denied?!" Raoul shrieks. "Shamelessly cheated by the black-hearted miscreants in charge of this show is more like it!" The boys, gape-mouthed, continue to watch as Abusive Drunken Action Sammy slings the corpse to one side before rising to his feet to smear the gore from his hands onto his shirt. Dean pauses the playback on that final, blurry image and slowly straightens himself up to gaze down at Sam with growing horror. Sam immediately lowers his head with what we're meant to assume is a crushing sense of remorse, but the soft overhead light in the room is now hitting his forehead at such an angle that his eyes are entirely obscured in the darkness of their brows' shadow. "Evil!" cackles Raoul. "The darling boy is evil!" And with one final glance at the computer screen, we head into the first commercial break most woefully CHOMP!-less.
Dean furiously wipes away at the room's surfaces in an attempt to remove any and all fingerprints while Emo Action Sammy sits stilly at the desk, reading a hand-written letter apparently addressed to the deceased that includes the lines, "My roommate is very jealous of my waterproof pajamas! Where do you find such crazy things?" Hee. Sam, his eyes still lurking in the shadows of his brow, swallows tightly just as Dean barrels over on his stumpy little bow legs to point at the computer and demand, "How do you erase this?" Emo Action Sammy just starts moaning about the rapidly decaying corpse on the carpet, so Dean rather urgently notes, "Listen to me: Whoever this guy is, he's a hunter, which means that other hunters are gonna come looking for him, which means we gotta cover our tracks, okay?" During that little tirade, Sam's eyes have come partially into view, and dare I say it? He looks more annoyed than anything else. Though, of course, that annoyance could simply be his reaction to Dean's callous treatment of the deceased, for through gritted teeth, Sam replies to Dean's little tirade with, "His name was Steve Wandell." Dean halts in the midst of his single-minded mission to rid the place of any evidence that could link Sam to the murder to go, "Huh?" Sam waves the letter around and, his voice laden with emotion, announces it came from Steve's daughter. Dean's response? DEAN SMASH. Yep, he hauls the desktop's tower into the air and dashes it against the floorboards, where the crappily constructed thing instantly bursts open so Dean might then repeatedly stomp down on its innards with his boot. Emo Action Sammy, taken aback, flips The Super-Special Puppy-Dog Eyes Of Doom at his brother. "Do correct me if I'm wrong," Raoul interjects, "but I believe those eyes of his are saying, 'That's not going to erase the hard drive, you moron!'" Oh, you're probably right about that, my scaly friend. Once he's finished his Clockwork Orange routine with the computer, Dean slaps a washcloth down on the desk with a gruff, "Wipe your prints, then we go," before disappearing into the main hall. Emo Action Sammy gapes at him for a bit before lowering his head again so his eyes vanish once more into their shadows.
