They pull up outside the gorgeous and sprawling Cassity Farms, where Dean reminds Sam to keep an eye out for anybody who seems to be hallucinating. Because that's what people do when hellhounds are after them. Sam wouldn't remember this from the time his own brother was hunted down by hellhounds. Sigh. This show, sometimes. They've also apparently not discussed their plans in the hours and hours they've spent driving. "And if we find someone?" Sam asks. Dean waggles his demon knife and says, "You get 'em clear, I spike Fido, the crowd goes wild."
"Hey, pal, who runs this joint?" Dean asks a pair of legs sticking out from under a tractor. He and Sam both seem a bit surprised when the mechanic turns out to be a woman. "You're looking at her," she says. She clarifies that she doesn't own the place, but manages it. She assumes they're there for the job that conveniently needs filling. Sam and Dean seem surprised by their good luck, like what was their cover story going to be had this not dropped into their laps? A bearded man with ruddy cheeks joins them. "Ellie, who've we got here?" he asks the manager. The brothers introduce themselves and shake hands. The man is Carl Granville, whose wife owns the farm. "I'm just one of those trophy husbands," he jokes, patting his beer belly. Carl tells Ellie to hire the two strangers, based on... what? Who knows?
Ellie shows them to their room, which looks more or less like any number of rooms the Winchesters have occupied over the years. Dean, however, has developed a taste for finer things as of late. "I miss my room," he grumbles.
For their first job, the boys are sent off to clean the Augean stables. Sorry, no -- make that the Cassity stables. While they're scooping horse poop, they overhear Ellie arguing with a lady in fancy riding clothes. "Organic food is better for the cattle," Ellie says. "My land, my animals, my money, my way," says the fancy lady. "End of story!" She flounces off in a huff. Ellie joins the Winchesters. "She's a real piece of work, huh?" Dean says. Ellie sighs. "Alice Cassity is a piece of something, all right." After Ellie leaves, Sam and Dean discuss their crossroads options. Dean dismisses Ellie because she's "the help," and Sam says Carl doesn't seem the type. They both settle on Alice as being their likely candidate.
