Cut to a musical montage of the boys scaling the fence of the auction house with plenty of grunting and kick-ass guitar licks. Dudes really know how to bring out the Hessian in me. And in a strange turn of real time events, I just turned to my husband, curious about where the term "Hessian" to describe metalheads comes from and found out that while he doesn't know, he did once subscribe to a 'zine titled "Hessian Obsession." TWoP: Bringing Married Couples Together Through Bizarre Pop Cultural References.* ["We always called them 'heshers.'" -- Sars] So the guitars wail, and a handheld camera takes us through the boys breaking in to the auction house. I think this show does surprisingly well with these music-video-type sequences (I'm thinking of "Skin" [recap coming, I promise!] and "Faith" in particular). Sam disarms the alarm while Dean picks the lock; the boys make their way through the darkened warehouse with their flashlights in total tough guy jazz hands position. They spot the painting, run over to it, Dean slices the canvas out of the frame, and then we fade to the boys outside setting it on fire. Cut back inside the warehouse, where the painting regenerates in its frame while the boys watch it burn outside. Metal Teeth Chomp.
*He wants you to know that HIS 'zine was titled "Beat Up the Poor," a title taken from a Baudelaire poem and so confirming once and for all that I am actually married to that goober I described above, sitting in a dark bar, reading French poetry, and glaring.
Commercials. The next day Dean stalks through the motel room declaring that he can't find his wallet and that he thinks he might have dropped it in the warehouse last night. Sam can't believe it. Dean, our own little Emmy-oriented Eva Longoria in this scene, spits out his lines: "I mean, it's got my prints, my ID, well, my fake ID anyway, we gotta get it before somebody else finds it. Come on." Wacky Transition Percussion takes us back to the warehouse, where the boys sort of sneak around peeking under stuff. Sarah walks by and sees them. She's dressed in the Art Professional's Uniform -- black turtleneck -- and she seems pleased to see them. Sam starts stuttering to her that they're leaving town and came to say goodbye. Sarah's face falls, but Dean interrupts just in time, asking Sam what he's talking about since they're staying for a few more days. Dean continues, taking his wallet out of his pocket and pointedly saying that he wants to give Sam the twenty bucks he owes him. Smooth! Sam's mouth hangs open, catching a crowd of flies, which then proceed to enjoy partying inside the prime, empty real estate. Dean says he has to "go do something...somewhere" and leaves Sarah and Sam alone. Well, along with all the flies in Sam's mouth. Sarah suggests that maybe they go out again sometime, but Sam is numb from the waist down and tells her that they really are leaving today. Just then, a worker walks by carrying the haunted portrait and Sam shouts, "OH MY GOD!" and then tries to cover when Sarah asks him what he's yelling about, "The...that painting...looks soooo good." Hee.
