Creepily lit hallway of Supernatural Theorizing. Dean declares that "spirits and demons don't have to unlock doors if they want inside, they just go through the walls." Sam responds, "So it's probably something else, something corporeal." Dean turns to him: "Corporeal? Excuse me, Professor." Drunken Bee sighs over the sad state of language instruction that has made "corporeal" into a ten-dollar word. Sam asks Dean what he thinks it is, and in doing so acts pretty cutely little-brotherish. Dean says, "The claws, the speed that it moves, could be a skin-walker. Maybe a black dog." Oh. My. God. My already tenuous coolness rating just plummeted from having to type that shit. Dean is psyched because whatever it is, it's a creature, which means they can kill it.
Outside, Dean opens the Metallicar's trunk. He looks behind him a bit suspiciously for a second and then props the trunk open with a rifle. And though it pains me to say this, that rifle is set right next to a dream catcher. My theory that these two are really a pair of fourteen-year-old girls is beginning to seem more and more likely. As the camera close-ups on Dean selecting, like, omigod, his most favoritest guns ever!, a shadow passes over his back. But it's just Sam, rushing in with alarm over having to prevent Hailey from going out to Blackwater Ridge. Dean tells Sam that Hailey isn't going to "just sit this one out" because they come squawking about some big mystical monster. Sam is pretty dense and tells him that instead, "We go with her. We protect her. Then we play Tune in Tokyo with her." Well, maybe he didn't say that last part. Sam gets pissed: "So finding Dad's not enough? Now we've gotta baby-sit, too?" and slams the trunk shut. Dean fixes him with one hell of a "You disgust me!" stare, chucks the bag o' weapons at him, and walks away.Establishing shot of a supremely manicured DANGEROUS! NATURE! area. Some dude loads some sort of major gun and says, "I'll tell you again, I don't think Ben should come." Hailey walks up to him in order to tell us his name: "Roy." Thanks, Hailey! Roy says, "Look, you're paying me good money to keep everybody safe. I think Ben's safest at home." Meanwhile, the Metallicar pulls up to Hailey, Roy, and Ben. Sam and Dean get out and ask if there's room for them, and Hailey tells Roy that the two are "all the park service could muster up." She snots at Dean, "You're hiking out in biker boots and jeans?" but he's ready for it: "Well, sweetheart, I don't do shorts." Hee. Roy gets all Smokey the Bear: "You think this is funny? It's dangerous backcountry out there. Her brother might be hurt." DANGEROUS! BACKCOUNTRY! God.
