Previously - Meg made me love Ellen/Jo and squicked me out with Cas, shape shifters have a Daddy, Crowley lied through his teeth (probably) and made Dean and RoboSam his errand boys - yeah I find that one hard to process too.
Huh! One gigantor robot down. How did that happen without Dean hearing him hit the floor? (The Things that Confuse Me list makes its appearance.) Dean goes down too when a demon bashes him with a bat(?). Perhaps demons love baseball. The Winchesters awaken in bondage while Meg practically purrs at Dean's threats.
Meg: "Keep sweet talking me, this could go a whole other direction."
Dean: "Meg, I've been dying to see you again."
Meg: "Well here I am, Big Boy. What should we do know?"
Dean: "How about I rip you to shreds."
Meg: "Kinky, I like."
Me: Skanky - I need that shower.
Meg wants Crowley , but the Winchesters are just delivery boys. Meg gives Dean a lap dance but he's not giving tips. "Ok. Foreplay's officially over. Satisfy me or I please myself." I like Meg 2.0 better than the original but my squick meter's overflowing. RoboSam laughs, but Dean doesn't love the snuff film vibe. RoboSam: "She can't do jack squat; she's totally screwed." Crowley wants Meg dead. Dean wants them to nuke themselves but RoboSam wants to work together. Dean and I protest. "We'll hand you Crowley with a bow on one condition. We go with you and you help us wring a little something out of him before you hack him to bits." RoboSam questions if she can do it. Meg: "I apprenticed under Alastair in hell just like your brother. So Dean, can I make Crowley do whatever I want?" Dean: "Yeah she can." Nice work here by Jensen. His face shows how much he hates being reminded of torturing people in hell. Meg agrees to RoboSam's plan, while Meg's minion invades Dean's space. "Are you going to kiss me?"

Crowley's Pet Fun House is surprisingly easy to enter, which can only mean TRAP. What do you know? Djinn girl is here. Bet you regret messing with the Winchesters now! However, hellhounds are no surprise. They try to outrun them, and the 2 demon red shirts become chew toys. Why does salt effect hell hounds when it doesn't stop their demon owners? Why, if the demons died on the outside, is their blood running down the wall on the inside? Meg plans to leave her body and buy them a few seconds but Crowley is smarter than that. He's locked her inside her meat suit (hate that term), so she's stuck. Dean smirks, "Karma." What! RoboSam puzzles me by giving Meg back Ruby's knife. Nooo, we've been too long without it already. Meg double shocks me by refusing the knife and proceeding to suck face with Cas. How many knew she was heading for the angel sword? Yep, all of us. How many knew Cas was going to throw Meg against the wall and kiss her too? Yeah, me neither. We are in good company as the Winchesters are shocked too. Meg: "What was that?" Cas: "I learned that from the pizza man." The brothers are left speechless while I howl with laughter. Nice pacing writers - a little fun between action.
In a non-shock, Crowley lied. He can't get Sam's soul back, but he can snark under duress. "I meant can't you mop-headed lumberjack." Crowley still claims he got RoboSam out of hell but couldn't get his soul. Crowley, Meg, and Cas all agree that Sam's soul will leave him a "drooling mess". Dean hands Ruby's knife to Meg and I love how Crowley is surprised by this. She speechifies for Lucifer and of course, Crowley takes her down. Who knew? Sticking Ruby's knife in a devil's trap lets you out. But Cas saves the day. "Leave them alone." Crowley: "Castiel, haven't seen you all season. You the cavalry now?" Now that's my kind of meta. Score one for the writers. Crowley gloats that Raphael is winning the angel civil war. Seems it's getting nasty up there.
Next week - Dean becomes Death, RoboSam re-enacts The Shining, and Bobby may be screwed. Yikes!
