As the Winchesters head back to the Impala, Dean gets a news update on his phone about the latest victim. Mrs. Holmes watches them leave from a window. As she turns away, she comes face to face with Randa. "What are you doing here, Randa?" she asks. "You know I like to stay close to the mothership," Randa says. She also wants to make sure Mrs. Holmes isn't saying anything to anyone about their crazy, heart-eating secret. "Brick's heart beats inside here now," she says, touching her chest. She says it's why she moved to Boulder and promises to "watch out" for Mrs. Holmes just like Brick did. Mrs. Holmes doesn't seem very happy about that.
Sam and Dean finally manage to find themselves a decent motel room with a partition made out of cowboy cutouts. Sam gets a call from Dr. Morrison and passes along the news to Dean. "First, it was a dead language: ancient Mayan... so what Arthur was saying was 'the divine god, Cacao, is born.'" Sam goes onto explain that Cacao was the corn god of the Maya. As posters in the forums pointed out, Cacao was most definitely not the corn god of the Maya. Perhaps there was a typo in the research Dr. Morrison read and it was supposed to say "corny god." Dean says someone is due to die in Phoenix if they don't stop whatever the hell Cacao is doing.
While Dean is emailing the Phoenix police to give them a heads up he comes across an email for Sam. It's from some university, answering Sam's query about admissions. They very nearly get into another boring ass argument about normal life when Sam wisely changes the subject to the case at hand. "So what, do we just got to Phoenix and chase our tails until this guy shows his face?" Don't be silly, Sam. Y'all never go anywhere sunny. "Brick Holmes is the way into this," Dean says. "Eleanor Holmes was doing her damnedest not to tell us anything. Nice job changing the subject, though." He says the last as he flounces out of the room. All right, maybe he doesn't actually flounce, but he might as well with the way the writing is going on this.
They sneak back into the Holmes house while Eleanor is away at her dedication ceremony. They head for the master bedroom. Sam and Dean each take a closet. Dean finds Brick's clothes in one, along with a stash of blond hair dye. Sam pokes around in the other closet and finds Eleanor's clothes. He and Dean come to the conclusion that there may have been some mother-son hanky-panky going on. They shudder and soldier on. Dean finds a secret room hidden behind Brick's closet, which is chock full of sports memorabilia going back hundreds of years. Sam takes it all to mean that Brick was some kind of fanboy collector. Then Dean finds a box of letters, all written to someone named Betsy while he was on the road. One letter from the 1940s mentions an upcoming boxing match with Sugar Ray Robinson. Another letter promises to be home after playing against the Red Sox. The letters go on like that, all signed with a vague "Love, Me," and detailing different sports events from different eras. They all sound happy until the newest letter. Sam reads the opening lines: "Dearest Betsy. So tired of it all..."
