In some sort of ranger cabin or woodsy police station, the boys talk to a friendly old man who wants to know why Fish and Wildlife are interested in the drowning. Blue Tits, I told you! They tell the rangerpoliceman that Sophie the Whore's brother saw something drag her down. He replies that there aren't any "indigenous carnivores" in the lake. Last episode we had DANGEROUS!BACKCOUNTRY! This eppy we get INDIGENOUS!CARNIVORES! The Rangerpoliceman thinks The Malook is just traumatized, and reminds Sam and Dean that they dragged the lake and found nothing. Dean leans in closer and does some reminding of his own: "That's the third person this year." Rangerpoliceman sighs, "Well, it won't be a problem much longer." Dean and Sam are immediately little mice in a maze. Rangerpoliceman drops a few crumbs for them to follow: "Well, the dam, of course." Dean starts following the trail while Sam chews on his tail: "Of course, the dam...it...it...it's...sprung a leak." Nice work, little mousie. Come here and get in my pocket. Rangerpoliceman clarifies, telling us that the dam is falling apart and they can't get money to fix it, so they're slowly letting the lake drain out through the spillway. He makes a point of saying, "But as federal wildlife, you already knew that." Dean does this dramatic blink/nod move and luckily gets saved by the pecking of a sweet little chickadee.
A pretty brunette pokes her head in the office. Rangerpoliceman introduces her as his daughter. Dean is first in line to coo at the bird, shaking her hand. She tells him her name is Andrea Barr, and a little red-headed boy appears out from behind her. He looks about seven or eight, I'd guess. I love how Amy Acker is already totally Oldy McOld in Actress Land. She's... thirty. When Rangerpoliceman mentions that Dean and Sam are here about the lake, the little boy, Lucas, leaves the room and Andrea is all traumatized "oh." She follows her son, and Sam asks if Lucas is okay. Rangerpoliceman says they've all been through a lot. So there isn't really much left for the boys to do except go over to Andrea and harass her into walking them two blocks to a cheap motel. She agrees.
