By the time we've returned from the commercial break, the Impala's grumbled up the main drive of Doctor Visyak's impressive San Francisco estate and Dean, upon disembarking, buzzes the good doctor's bell. "Yes?" comes a female voice through the security system's intercom. Dean introduces himself, and receives rather a frosty reply until he notes that Bobby Singer sent him. After a moment, the good doctor herself appears at the door to let him in, and long story short, she's this show's version of an upper-class intellectual, which basically means she wears a lot of satin and drinks like a fish. So, you know, aside from the satin, she's pretty much like everyone else. Dean follows her back to her art-bedecked study and, after getting a bit of entirely unnecessary backstory from her involving the passionate affair she conducted with Bobby at some point in the not-so-distant past, he asks about dragons. During the lengthy and vaguely flirtatious conversation that follows, we learn that dragons were once plentiful upon the face of the earth, but the last of the breed was supposedly slaughtered seven hundred years ago, so the good doctor's quite surprised to hear one's been spotted stateside. The only way to kill them, according to this show, is by running them through with a sword forged with the creatures' own blood, and unfortunately, no more than five or six such weapons still exist. Fortunately, the good Doctor Visyak happens to have one of the relics down in her basement, so the two head downstairs as she reveals that "finding it took two decades, countless hours, and some really bad sex with an Eastern European ambassador." Um. Ha?
In any event, they eventually make it all the way down to the sword's secret chamber, and wouldn't you know it? The thing's embedded in a giant rock, just like Excalibur, as "binding" special swords to stone was evidently "all the rage" back in the day, the better to protect them. And, like Excalibur, Doctor Visyak's "Sword Of Brunsvik" can only be removed from its stone by "a brave knight," so Dashing El Deano, naturally, steps up to give it a try. There follows a very long, extremely embarrassing slapstick sequence in which Dean tries and fails repeatedly to yank the sword from the stone, and when it's all over, he retreats to the good doctor's side to announce, "Well, I have another idea." "What?" the good doctor prompts. "You're not gonna like it," Dean warns. This should suck. You know, even more than the crap I just sat through.
