Episode 11×08 AKA “Why’d it have to be a clown?”
Well, the hellatus is over and Darkness is unleashed on the Earth in the form of a little girl. Crowley has become a guardian to Teh Dark Preteen; Sammy was infected by the rage monster virus, and Castiel has been cured of his curse by Rowena. I’m guessing the Winchesters won’t be getting sunshine and puppies anytime soon…Warning there be spoilers ahead.
P.S. I’m not sorry for the format of this episode’s recap.
CASE DAY 1
1:14 a.m. Woke up. Another glimpse of the cage. Not sure if a vision or a nightmare. Dean thinks the latter.
2:52 a.m. No luck researching the Darkness. Castiel’s Gaza intel gives no clue about Amara or other prehistoric evils.
8:17 a.m. Phone call from Sheriff Donna. Killer bunny on the loose. Suspects it could be supernatural in origin. Dean thinks someone watched “Donnie Darko” too many times. Approximately 12 hour drive to Minnesota so will have plenty of time for Dean’s rabbit jokes.
CASE DAY 2
10:14 a.m. Perp is unidentified male in a rabbit mask. Mask is unable to be removed and perp is unresponsive to questioning. Unresponsive to holy water, but supernaturally strong. And apparently Dean still watches cartoons, judging by the number of Bugs Bunny references he’s able to shove into this case.
1:38 p.m. Identified the perp’s girlfriend from a tattoo on his wrist. She claims the perp had no prior acquaintance with victim. Also claims that the perp acted out of character as soon as he put the mask on.
1:57 p.m. Evil rabbit attacked Sheriff Donna. Dean is now certain that this is a case of watching Donnie Darko too many time. (Has he even seen the film?)
11:58 p.m. Burned the body. Will head back to bunker in the morning. Still no leads on Amara. Dean unwilling to discuss visions. Hope to discuss with Cas when we get back.
CASE DAY 3
2:14 a.m. There’s been another murder.
3:27 a.m. It’s the court jester. EMF reader went crazy. Dean shot it with a shotgun. Kid was possessed by a ghost. Thinks it’s linked to the mask.
9:03 a.m. Tracked the costumes to a local woman. Belonged to her brother who committed suicide. Looks more likely this is a vengeful spirit.
12:21 p.m. A third murder.
1:07 p.m. I hate clowns.
1:15 p.m. I’m burning Dean’s copy of “It.”
4:33 p.m. Definitely a case of vengeful spirit. Parents accuse children’s performer of unsavory behavior, then performer commits suicide. Spirit angry over wrongful accusation?
5:17 p.m. Should’ve stuck with Cas to research the Darkness. Darkness doesn’t have damn clowns, just evil teenagers.
6:29 p.m. Wasn’t a suicide. Need to burn the costumes ASAP. Starting with the damn clown.
7:57 p.m. Costumes burned. Spirit at rest. Said goodbye to Donna. Case closed. Time to get back to the real threat, and convincing Dean that the Cage is a big part of whatever this is.
11:16 p.m. Dean stuck a picture of Bozo the clown in my bag. Maybe I’ll throw him in the Cage.
