In any event, just as Sam's about to plunge The Knife That Can Kill Anything into the daughter's throat, Doomed El Deano lunges up from behind to stay Sam's arm, shouting, "Don't! It's not in the girl anymore!" It's also, apparently, not in the mother, either. Hmmm. I wonder where Lilith could be? Oh, hello, Princess Sparkle, just arriving from points unknown to join the boys as they slide into the next commercial break most woefully CHOMP!-less! "Any fool can see the foul fiend has found a new hostess in that silly little blonde woman!" Oh, hello, Raoul. I didn't hear you toddle back from your den. And how were Marion Cotillard's eyebrows? "As gruesome as they've ever been!" Indeed? "I know! I keep waiting and waiting and waiting for the delightfully unnerving effect to wear off, and if anything, the upper half of her head only seems to get even more grotesque with each additional viewing!" I'm so pleased you were able to enjoy yourself. "Quand il me prend dans ses bras!" Oh, Lord. "Il me parle tout bas! Je vois LA VIE EN ROOOOH-ZAH!
Aftermath. Bobby's still trapped in the hideout across the way. From his perspective, the bad news is it's getting awfully close to midnight. The good news, however, is that the line of holy water sprinklers continues to hold, so the Fremonts' demonic fiends and neighbors remain harmless. For the moment. Meanwhile, Our Intrepid Heroes plus Ruby hustle Daughter-In-Law Of Dead Pat into the basement, where Dean instructs her to remain with her lousy wimp of a husband and their now-depossessed brat of a daughter, no matter what dire sounds emanate from the floor above. Once the civilians have been safely stowed away, Our Intrepid Heroes start screaming at each other, with Desperate Action Sammy pleading with Princess Sparkle to tell him what he needs to do to access his long-dormant powers, and Doomed El Deano refusing to allow that to happen, no matter what. It goes on like that until the Fremonts' expensive-looking mantel clock hits midnight, and as the chimes slowly sound, Our Intrepid Heroes get all teary-eyed and snot-streaked while still offering each other valiant Buck Up, Little Camper smiles. No sooner has the last of the chimes echoed through the room when the baying of the hellhounds kicks in from somewhere outdoors, with a subsequent low growling almost instantly arising from the floor at Dean's back. He turns, slowly, and can see it lurking in the dining room, and as he warily backs away from the thing, the shot cuts immediately over to Hellhound-Cam, and the Camera Dog pounces. The boys plus Ruby scamper away into a nearby room, where they slam the doors behind them so Dean might hastily lay down a few lines of graveyard dirt mixed with snakeskin, ash, powdered sulfur, salt, red and black pepper, powdered bones, powdered insect chitin, herbs, and iron filings. The howling and the battering of the hellhounds against the door presently halts, and once it does, Ruby wheels on Sam and demands he turn over The Knife That Can Kill Anything, Up To And Including Hellhounds, Apparently so she can try to fight the beasts off. One problem: "Sam, that's not Ruby!" dazed El Deano whispers, once he's finally -- after that whole entire previous scene that lasted a full two minutes -- gotten a good look at her face. Sam, horrified, tries to plunge The Knife into Lilith's chest, but Lilith telekinetically backhands him up against the wall while flattening Dean across a table in much the same fashion.
