"What do you want?" Benny asks. "I want your head on a stake," Martin says as he whips out a machete with his free hand. Benny gives a nod of acceptance. He trudges over to the counter, leans over and rests his cheek on it. Elizabeth may not understand much of what's going on, but she understands what's about to happen. "Roy, no," she sobs. Benny looks at her with tear-filled eyes and whispers, "I'm sorry." Martin advances on Benny and swings the machete up in preparation for the killing blow. Elizabeth screams.
Instead of finding out what happens to Benny, we cut to Kermit, Texas, where Sam has just arrived at the house he once shared with Amelia. He readies his gun and sneaks up to the front window. He peers inside, but nothing could have prepared him for the horror that he's witnessing. There, before his eyes, are Amelia and Don... cuddling together on the couch. They also appear to be sharing a beer. Won't somebody think of the children?!
Meanwhile, Dean is back on the road, singing along a little bit to Steve Earle's "Feel Alright." Before things can break into a full-on musical number, he gets a call. It's Elizabeth. "You told me to call if I saw... him," she says, unsure of what name to use now. Her hands and the entire front of her dress are soaked with blood. "What do you mean?" Dean asks. "Roy? Is he there right now?" Elizabeth seems to be staring down at someone or something on the floor, but we are not privy to what she sees. Please don't be Benny. Please don't be Benny. Please don't be... "Just come?" she asks. Dean whips the Impala around and heads back for Carencro.
When he gets to the cafe, he finds Elizabeth sitting on the front stoop. Unable to speak, she can only point a trembling hand behind her. Dean, seeing her wounds, presses a handkerchief to her neck before heading inside. There, he follows a trail of blood through upended chairs and tables to a body lying on the floor. Dean steels himself. I steel myself. Please don't be Benny. And the dead man is.... Martin! THANK GOODNESS. Sorry, but he had it coming. His neck looks like raw hamburger and he's surrounded by a pool of blood. I know some online speculation has been that the amount of blood left behind means Benny may not have fed on Martin, but it could just as easily be a matter of the show simply being generous with the gore. Dean gives Martin's body a look like, "You poor, dumb, crazy bastard."
