"So," Sam the LYING LIAR WHO LIES continues in the present, "it would have been kinda hard for Dean to kill Tony, considering we weren't even in town at the time." "So tell me what happened next," Linda shrugs. Is her damn character ever going to get a name tonight? "Would it matter if it does?" Raoul wonders. "Linda Blair will always be the vomitous, foul-mouthed, head-spinning nightmare of a child who captured my heart oh, so many years ago with the most brilliant and accurate portrayal of human preadolescence ever immortalized on film, so why would one fight it?" I think I hate it when Raoul has a point. Anyway, back to Sam: "That's when we went to see Karen. She was barely holding it together, and we just wanted to be there for her, you know?"
Cut to Our Intrepid Duo, masquerading as insurance company representatives there to assure the grieving widow her financial due in this, her hour of need. Heh. The grieving widow, by the way, is played by Keegan Connor Tracy, an actress whose unusually waspish eyebrows I thought I recognized from something important, but it turns out it was only The 4400. Anyway, under the guise of conducting the separate, independent investigation mandated by the insurance company's guidelines, the boys mercilessly pump The Widow Giles for information on her husband's murder. Sam has, of course, donned his Captain Empathy costume for the proceedings, but he gets a really funny moment when he's forced to abandon the faÃ§ade for a few seconds to non-verbally scold Dean for being such a shitty interrogator of the grief-stricken. "Did Tony mention anything unusual to you in the days before his death?" Dean opens. "Unusual?" The Widow Giles repeats, confused. "Yeah!" Dean continues, over-enthusiastically. "Like, strange. You know, Karen: Weird! Weird noises! Visions! Anything like that." Sam pointedly clears his throat and shoots A Look at Dean. Karen turns her teary eyes to Sam, who immediately alters his expression to frown back at her commiseratively, with the full Super-Special Puppy-Dog Eyes treatment that vanishes the instant she's dropped her head so he might once more glare at his insensitive jackass of a brother. Hee. The Widow Giles eventually reveals her late husband had a nightmare the evening before he died, of a strange woman standing at the foot of their marital bed. When he blinked, the apparition disappeared. The boys shoot each other significant side-eyes. DUN! Dean unleashes some more of his shitty interrogation skills before Sam's present-day voice-over picks up with, "So, I gave Karen a hug and told her to call me if she needed anything..."
