This Week's Motel Room. Dean finally gets around to changing The Fresh Infant's diaper, and successfully manages to put the kid down for a nap. Sam, who'd spent this entire time making mocking noises from across the room, is unduly impressed with Dean's parenting skills. This leads to a discussion regarding Dean's home life with Bendy Lisa and The Brat, which leads to a discussion regarding their worthless bastard of a so-called father and their near-Dickensian upbringing thanks to same, which leads to a discussion regarding Dean's hopes for a better life for The Brat, even though The Brat isn't actually his child. Well, okay, it's not so much "a discussion" as it is "a monologue from Dean, who has downed several shots of whiskey by this point and is therefore feeling just a wee bit loquacious," but whatever. Sam ponders over everything Dean's said for a moment, then announces that it doesn't seem like Dashing El Deano's doing a much better job than the worst father in the history of the planet, Sucky John himself. Dean's constantly moving Bendy Lisa and The Brat around, and when they do settle in one place for longer than fifteen minutes, Dean puts them in lockdown, and how is any of that different from the way Shut Up Daddy raised them? This depressing conversation ends with the conclusion that Dean is turning into his father. "I'm bored!" Not to worry, friend of friends. There's plenty of excitement coming up in a couple of minutes. "Whee!"
First, though, we must watch as Sam returns to his research, only to discover a major clue he'd somehow overlooked until this very moment. Seems one of the slaughtered gentlemen of Lansing was not the natural father of the infant who ended up missing, and the natural father of the infant in question is still alive. Sam suggests they head back to Lansing for a chat, and Dean's all eager to go until he remembers they've got a six-month-old on their hands, so he agrees to remain at this week's motel room while Sam shimmies back into his FBI drag and hits the road. The instant Sam's gone, The Fresh Infant begins to fuss, so Dean wets a finger with some of the whiskey he'd been drinking and pops it into the kid's mouth. Atta boy.
