Public library. Sam hangs out on the microfiche machine. He calls Dean, who is at the hospital. Sam has found evidence of the shtriga showing up every 15-20 years in Fort Douglas, Ogdenville, North Haverbrook ("Where the monorail is king!"), and Brockway. The earliest mention Sam found is in Black River Falls in the 1890s. Sam flips through the microfiche from a paper in the 1890s when something catches his attention. One of the doctors is Dr. Hydecker. Luckily, Jensen Ackles does NOT take this opportunity to work on his Jack Nicholson in The Shining impression, and simply asks Sam if he is sure. Dean's gaze lands on Dr. Hydecker comforting Billabong Mom. The doc walks over to Dean, who has magically appeared one and a half feet away from the pair. Please note that Dean is fully wearing his leather jacket and jeans get-up and yet Dr. Hydecker still keeps up the CDC pretense.Back in the motel, the brothers are exasperated that they didn't think of the doctor before. Sam expresses surprise that Dean didn't shoot the doc just before. Dean reminds him that it isn't good form to "open fire in a pediatrics ward," and also that it wouldn't have killed him since he's invulnerable except when "chowing down on something." Then Dean provides a third reason why, but his locution is so confusing and involves "a clip" and "burn[ing] a hole in him" and I don't understand what he's saying. Sam tells his brother that he's getting wise in his old age. Then he turns to me and tells me I'm getting stupid in my tenure recapping this show. But Dean has an idea. He acts like a rocket scientist putting together, um, a rocket? when observing to Sam that Hollywood Boy is probably the next victim on the list. Why they wouldn't have put this together immediately is beyond me. Sam wants to get Hollywood Boy out of the motel, but Dean wants to use him as bait. Sam is sort of horrified at this suggestion. I am horrified at Sam's hair in this scene. The brothers fight, their voices get elevated, and finally, Dean dramatically turns away from Sam, faces the camera with Sam in the background, and loudly emotes to the side of the lens, "It's my fault! I'm the one who screwed up!" Alert the coast guard, I think we've got a thezzpian in the house!
