...some dark and deserted stretch of atmospheric nowhere, and as this episode's internal timeline no longer makes sense, I'll stop paying attention to it. "Good idea!" Thanks for backing me up, Raoul. "No problem!" So, the Impala grumbles through some dark and deserted stretch of atmospheric nowhere until it reaches a ramshackle house at the end of the road. Our Actual Heroes disembark, wonder loudly if they're in the right place, and eventually climb the hovel's broken front steps to rap on the door. There's no answer, so naturally, Sam and Dean just barge right on in and tippy-toe through the generalized gloom of the house's first floor until a chunky, grey-haired, middle-aged gent with questionable personal hygiene standards snaps on a light to menace them both with a very large gun. D'OH! "Well, well!" chuckles Frank Devereaux, for that is indeed whom Our Intrepid Idiots are now gaping at. "Spider caught some flies!" And that's a shitty, shitty line with which to end the first act, but end it there we must, for the METAL TEETH CHOMP! has arrived to drag us all into the commercial break.
Lunatic Jackass Estates. Immediate aftermath. Various amusing pleasantries are exchanged -- amusing and deeply, deeply paranoid pleasantries, at least as far as Frank's concerned -- and I'd detail the three-minute-long scene that follows, I'm sure, were it not for the fact that none of it -- none of it -- actually has any bearing on what follows in this episode, so long story short, Frank Devereaux specializes in constructing new identities for the gentleman on the run, and after he brusquely confiscates Our Intrepid Idiots' existing IDs and laptops, he sets to wiping all trace of their known aliases from the record. By the way, the actor who's quite entertainingly portraying Devereaux this evening boasts a lengthy list of credits in a huge number of critically acclaimed movies and TV shows stretching all the way from 1976's I, Claudius to this week's Downton Abbey, so I think it's safe to say he's slumming. "Atta girl!" Oh, be quiet, Raoul. "Hee!"
