And I have to give credit to Katie Cassidy, here, because when Lilith drops her Ruby act once she's got the guys pinned, Cassidy convincingly ratchets her voice up a mincing, sing-songy, childlike octave and similarly alters everything about the way she moves, switching from a pattern that had been rather butch, frankly, to something altogether more lithe and coquettish -- and therefore, in this context, altogether more disturbing. After casually mentioning how easily she rid the earth of her host body's previous occupant, Lilith swivels over to Sam and simpers, "I've wanted to meet you for a very long time!" right before she hikes her tongue down his remarkably broad throat. I don't know about you, but I'm thinking the possessed have breath issues. "It's positively beastly, I'm sure!" Raoul agrees. Once Sam's free to breathe again, he attempts to barter his own soul for Dean's, but alas! "If you want to bargain, you have to have something I want!" Lilith perks. Unfortunately, Sam doesn't, so Lilith releases the hounds. "VIOLENCE!" Oh, Raoul. You disappoint me. "You object to my glee for some reason?!" Only because you're so easy to please -- this is some of the fakest gore-work I've ever seen on this show. And that's saying something. A lot, in fact. "Oh, do stop being such a pill and let me have my fun!" Sigh. As you wish, my scaly friend. So, the hellhounds first drag Dean to the floor by digging their claws into his legs and yanking. "WANTON ACTS OF UNREPENTANT VIOLENCE!" And then they flip his floppy little body back and forth until geysering founts of blood erupt from every square inch of exposed skin. "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE!" Well, you know. Except his face, 'cause that's just too pretty to claw. "GOOOOOO...ooops! NOT THE FACE! DEATH TO THE HELLHOUND WHO SCRATCHES THE FACE!" Meanwhile, Sam's hanging from the wall, screaming, "Noooooooooooo!" "Yesssssssssssss!" hisses Lilith, and she raises her Super-Special Death-Ray Hand into the air to shoot Darling Sammy into the final METAL TEETH CHOMP! of the season upon a stream of horribly brilliant white light.
