Night has fallen by the time Sam wakes up to find himself zip-tied to a chair in Victor's house. Victor and Hoodie have been sitting there this whole time, politely waiting for him to regain consciousness. "We don't have much time," says the guy who just wasted all that time skulking around the woods before knocking Sam the hell out, and then waiting for his ass to wake up again. But wait! The idiocy has only just begun! Victor proceeds to carefully upend a side table and lamp. "Picture this," he Sophia Petrillos. "The kids arrive home victorious, only to find you dead in the living room. Seems that nest of vampires they were hunting took revenge and killed you, thus inspiring them to hunt even more." He turns over a coffee table for emphasis. Did he not do this while Sam was asleep because he didn't want to disturb him? It's all just so hilariously awful! Even Hoodie seems amused. Sam nods in his direction. "So, what's he get out of this? Free roaming rights?" Victor's all, "I don't have to explain myself to you," before he goes on to explain himself. They're at war, he says, and losing. "That Leviathan fiasco was a wake-up call," he says. Not for the writers, it wasn't. "We have to do what we can to survive. I wouldn't expect you to understand; you're not a father." He goes on and on about how he gets a second chance now that his kids are dead, to create the next generation of hunters. He goes on for so long, in fact, that Dean and the kids show up before he can finish explaining his evil plot.
The kids take a look around the state of the room, the grinning vampire, at Victor and his gun. Out of the three of them, only Aidan seems mildly upset. "What is going on here?" Josephine asks. "These two are not to be trusted," he says. "They're trying to destroy us!" Maybe he should bring the kids into the woods, knock them all out, drag them back to his house and then wait for them to wake up again before explaining further. "Do you know this vamp?" Aidan asks. "Of course he does -- they're working together," says Sam. Victor thinks for a long time before finally saying, "It's complicated." Dean says Victor and Hoodie have been working together to set up easy kills for the kids. Krissy realizes that the vampires they've been hunting didn't kill their families.
What follows is like a scene out of the cheesiest whodunnit, where the baddie, having been confronted by the truth, finally spills the beans about all his evil deeds. To sum up: he got the vamp to kill the kids' families in order to motivate them. "I know the deaths are tragic," he admits, "but think of all the future lives that will be saved because you are now together!" You'd think these teenaged ticking time bombs would explode, but they seem to be taking the news relatively well.
