Was it the butler in the kitchen with the knife? The husband in the hallway with the axe? Wait a minute, that’s not how we play Clue now is it? In Supernatural this week, things get a little weird…which is saying something since it’s a show about Hunters killing monsters. Well, the boys are struggling to find their next case, after that last one, and grasping at straws. In the mean time, Dean finds an old phone of Bobby’s and listens through the messages. It seems that a Ms. Bunny, a very wealthy heiress, has passed away and left something for Bobby. Surely it’s worth checking into, right? Getting there isn’t the problem, it’s dealing with the four siblings of the diseased that’s the problem.
Two sisters and two brothers, surely this won’t be terrible, will it? Turns out, maybe just a little. Not only does the family hate each other, they most certainly can’t stand the oldest brother’s young wife. Sam and Dean are unaware of what’s already been going on in the house; a maid died the morning before anyone showed up, having fallen from the second story into a glass table. Nobody knows what’s going on. The Butler gives Sam and Dean what was left to Bobby, and instructs them to leave.
The boys do, only to have the bejeweled cross charm appraised. Of course it’s worthless, well, with no value. But it is a key, and keys unlock doors right? Confused they head back to the house to figure it all out, mostly just to ask the butler. In their absence however, the older brother of the family had been decapitated. Supposedly by the ghost of Bunny’s late husband…when the boys arrive they’re met with not only the butler, but a police officer that plans to interrogate everyone. Now stuck in the house, they get the chance to look around.
Dean finds what the key unlocks first, a door to a secret room in the attic…where he finds a dead maid and one that is very much alive. She claims to have been locked in there by the butler because she wouldn’t talk to the detective for him. Dean goes to find the butler, while Same investigates the house….only to find said missing butler dead. But Dean is up talking to the butler? Well, something supernatural really is going on here. The butler Dean was talking to is really a Shifter. Finding silver seems to be the easy part, testing everyone in the house seems hard. By all counts, everyone has no reaction to the silver making it even harder to find who really is the shifter. The younger brother has had enough of the Winchester’s shenanigans and locks them in a room after they all find the detective dead. I really didn’t see this coming, but the maid gets the room's attention by grabbing the detectives gun and pointing it at the family. She reveals that she is Bunny’s daughter and, also, a Shifter. Seems Bunny’s husband wasn’t her real dad, and Bobby killed the Shifter father before he could get to her. Bunny swore she’d keep the girl locked away if Bobby spared her life. Upon her death, Bobby was contacted so he could take care of the girl, instead of killing her. The butler had known of her all along. He’d let her out of the attic thinking it was all right to have her be free…which backfired just a bit.
Sam and Dean finally get free of their room and Sam gets into a gunfight with the Shifter while Dean gets silver bullets from the car. While she spills her life story and nearly kills Sam, Dean shoots her…several times. Is the Mark affecting him again? Sam’s not sure, but he’s more than a little worried. They leave the family, and in typical Dean fashion, they don’t talk about the issue much. Dean’s denying the Mark is controlling him. Claiming he wanted to be sure he’d killed the Shifter. Maybe he was just protecting Sam? I can only hope!
