Anyway, Kevin says Crowley is after him to translate the tablet so he can take over the universe. Dean and Sam tell Mama Tran that they're going to close the gates of Hell forever. She takes this all in, then gives her boy a long, considering look. "Prophet of the Lord, huh? That does have a nice ring to it." Yeah, but it's no Princeton. She invites herself along for the trip over the Winchesters' protestations. Sam describes all the horrible things that Crowley could do to her. He could take her soul, torture her, make her watch the last two seasons of this show. Mama understands the risks, but she can't be persuaded to let them take her to a safe house. She crosses her arms and gives the Winchesters a defiant look. Dean tries to get Kevin to talk to his mom, but he's more scared of her than he ever was of Crowley. Dean can't help but be just a little bit impressed with Mama Tran and finally agrees to take her along on their road trip. Still, he takes some delight in telling her she's going to have to get an anti-demon tattoo first. Sam pulls aside the neck of his shirt to show off his ink. Dean smiles as if expects this to be a deal breaker for Mama Tran, but she's cool with it. "Like it's my first tattoo," she scoffs. Kevin gapes at his mom. He's been abducted Leviathans, demons, and angels, but the thought of his mom being kind of cool may be the most shocking thing he's ever faced.
Cut to Ye Olde Tattoo Emporium, where the Trans get their arms inked in adjacent chairs. Kevin whimpers and writhes and huffs while Mama Tran remains utterly calm. She even has a little smile on her face. She reaches over to hold her baby's hand. Dean and Sam watch the whole thing with amusement. "You smell that, Sammy?" Dean asks. "Burning flesh?" Sam guesses. "Revenge," Dean tells him. Presumably he means revenge against Crowley and not against Kevin for being a whiny little wiener, but both are applicable. While they're waiting, Dean asks Sam how he did the reverse exorcism on Eunice. Sam says he just said the verse backwards. Dean is impressed, but Sam acts like it's no big. Kevin has moved on from whimpering to full-on screeching. Shut up, Kevin. At least it's a fairly cool tattoo. What if the symbol to keep demons out was a picture of a baboon's inflamed ass or something?
