Their next stop is the station to question Lance. He looks like what would happen if Garth could somehow make a baby with Jack McBrayer. Lance bursts into tears. "I can't believe Ed's dead!" His performance is so ridiculously over-the-top that you might think Sam and Dean would decide he's faking. But no! It's a "funny" episode, remember? Even the characters know this, so they've tossed all the regular rules out the window. Lance sobs and wails and boohoos while the Winchesters look on, clearly uncomfortable. Dean asks him about the texts. Lance insists they weren't from him, but from his alter ego. "Those texts were from Greyfox the Mystic to Thargrim the Difficult," he says. "Our characters in MoonDoor," he explains when Dean gives him a blank look. That just gets him another blank look, so he tells them that Moondor is a game and that he and Ed are LARPers. Dean remembers that time he and Sam met the gay couple version of themselves. He says they play every other weekend at Heritage Park. There are pictures on the website that will prove he was at the feast the night before, instead of off killing his fellow nerd. "He was Lancelot to my Merlin," Lance says, near to bursting into tears again. Dean wonders about the threatening texts. The exposition is this: Lance and Ed were named to the Queen's honor guard for the upcoming "Battle of Kingdoms." Lance thought Ed was cheating and called to confront him about it. Lance wails and turns his eyes heavenward. "Oh, ye gods! Thargrim the Difficult is fallen!" He boohoos some more. Sam and Dean slip out before he can start rending his garments.
