Supernatural RECAP 11/5/13: Season 9 Episode 5 “Dog Dean Afternoon”

SUPERNATURAL continues on the CW tonight with a new episode called, “Dog Dean Afternoon.”  On tonight’s episode the guys look up a spell that could let Dean “communicate” with the dog.  Did you watch last week’s season 9 episode 4?  We did and we recapped it right here for you.

On last week’s show Sam and Dean discovered that the table in the Men of Letters house (the one that lit up like a Christmas Tree when the angels fell), has an ancient computer attached to it. They figure if they could get the computer on, they could track the angels.  Who better to call for help than the best IT girl there was, Charlie? While moving the massive computer, they dislodged a hidden hexbag that unleashed a magical green-webbed wall. Sam and Dean broke through it and discovered the one and only Dorothy from Oz.  She had trapped herself and the wicked witch in the web years ago to stop the witch from finding the key that could open the gate that connected their world with Oz. With the wall broken, a massive and magical fight ensued that threatened to destroy the Men of Letters house.

On tonight’s show while investigating two bizarre murders, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) realize there is an eyewitness to both gruesome deaths – a German Sheppard. Anxious to find out if they are dealing with a witch, a skinwalker or other supernatural monster, the guys look up a spell that could let Dean “communicate” with the dog. Unfortunately, the spell comes with side effects that no one saw coming.

Tonight’s episode looks like it is going to be great and you won’t want to miss it, so be sure to tune in for our live coverage of CW’s Supernatural at 9:00 PM EST! While you wait for our recap hit the comments and let us know what you thought of last week’s episode?

Tonight’s episode begins now – Refresh Page for Updates

A dog trots into the workshop where his owner is working on a taxidermy project and listening to the football game. The dog whines and then there’s a crash. He barks and growls. The man picks up his shotgun and goes to investigate. He calls out to see if anyone is there. A stuffed bear startles him and says it gets him every time. The dog won’t stop barking and then suddenly there’s a man in a cowboy hat there with a forked tongue. He chokes the man to death. He actually breaks him completely in half.

Dean says he’s trying to cure Kevin’s hangover and Sam wants to know how long his hangover is going to last. Sam says he’s found them a case and Dean asks if he’s ready for it. Sam says he’s had lots of sleep and is ready. Dean reminds him about the trials and says he just wants him back to his old self. Sam describes the taxidermist that was crushed, every joint broken and his whole body crushed. He’s in Enid, Oklahoma – a couple of hours ago.

They pull up at the shop and see graffiti that says “die scum” and there’s a triangle with a paw print in it. They come in and flash their fake badges and talk to the local cop. He brings them into the crime scene. A guy who picks up entrails from Max (the victim) was the one who found the body. He says Max saved the guts for him and he says that it was weird that the entrails are missing today.

The cop says the register still has the cash and nothing else is missing. They tell the brothers that no one was there but the colonel – the dog. Dean and Sam discuss that they have a pagan symbol and missing guts and that it sounds witchy. Dean wants to leave because he doesn’t like the way the stuffed owl is looking at him. They head back to the hotel.

Sam says the symbol isn’t wiccan – it belongs to SNART, a local animal rights group. Sam wonders if SNART are hippies or witches and Dean asks what’s the difference. They come into a restaurant and Dean says he always knew he’d always find the source of all evil in a vegan bakery. They notice that the servers are wearing sunglasses and Dean says only blind people and douchebags wear sunglasses inside.

They ask the couple about SNART and tell them they’re investigating Max’s death. He asks if they knew him and tell him the SNART logo was found at the crime scene. The pair sits down and tell them Max’s business is fronted by hunters and that hunters are selfish dicks who define themselves by the things they kill. Dean and Sam look like they are taking that remark personally…

The woman says SNART doesn’t tolerate violence and would never have hurt him. She says when they were tagging his shop last night they heard a noise and went into the alley and they were attacked and maced. They said that’s why they’re wearing their sunglasses inside and looking like douchebags.

Sam does some research and says the wounds around their eyes are from venom not mace. Dean asks if it’s a freaky ass snake monster and Sam says snakes either use venom or constrict, but not both. They are perplexed. Dean says for him to call Kevin and have him do research.

The hatted killer comes in to the animal shelter and slips the kid at the disk a $100. He heads inside and the dogs all go nuts. He comes to the cage where the colonel is but then bypasses it. He has a bag and grabs out a couple of cats and takes them to go. The kid ignores the howls from the cats and plays on his phone. He decides to have one as a snack right then and his swallowing it down when the stupid kid comes to investigate and sees him swallowing the last of a cat down. He says he thought he was from a perfume company. The guy flashes slit eyes, grows claws and chases down the kid and makes a bloody mess of him.

Dean and Sam come into the shelter to investigate the death and see the colonel there. They think it’s odd that he’s been at both crime scenes. Dean thinks maybe it could be a shapeshifter or skinwalker. Dean says there’s one way to find out. He pulls out a silver coin and touches it to the dog. Sam says they can rule out killer.

When the cop walks up the dog goes nuts. Dean has a thought and asks to borrow his hat. He puts it on and the colonel goes nuts. They figure out they’re looking for a culprit in a hat! The cop says – good luck finding someone to adopt him. A dog that doesn’t like a hat in Oklahoma could be a liability…

Dean talks to the dog and asks if he speaks sign language. Sam says that’s monkeys. Sam calls Kevin and asks how they can talk to a dog.

Back at the hotel, they’ve got the colonel and discuss that Kevin told them there’s an Inuit spell that can do what they need. Sam is mixing up the potion and says Kevin says it’s like a human-animal mind meld and will let them read the dog’s thoughts. Dean says he’ll do it because Sam has enough on his plate. He tells him Sam’s got a sensitive stomach so that’s another issue. Dean guzzles the potion and says it’s really bad. He reads off the spell to complete the meld. He tells the dog to tell him everything he knows and the dog yawns and then barks.

Later they eat and Dean tells him to call Kevin and tell him the spell tastes like ass and doesn’t work. The radio is playing Foreigner and the dog stands up and looks at Dean and demands that he change the radio station. Dean is stunned the spell is working. The colonel says he can’t believe what passes for classic rock and says they may as well be playing Styx and Dennis DeYoung! Dean argues with him about Dennis DeYoung and then gets back to the murder.

The colonel tells him the guy reaked of red meat and soap and other stuff. Sam throws a wad of paper in the trash and Dean retrieves it and throws it back. He’s playing fetch! The dog starts barking and Dean sees the mailman. Dean yells at the mailman too and is scratching and barking at him. Sam says the mind meld worked too well. Dean says ru-roh!

Sam tells Dean the spell has some side effects after a call with Kevin. He says the mind meld can cause you to exhibit animal behaviors. The dog teases him about wanting to sniff butts and Dean denies he has the urge. Dean breaks into some chocolate and the dog tells him not to do it. Dean spits it out rudely. The colonel asks where they’re going and Dean says back to the shelter. The dog asks if they are doing more investigation.

A pigeon poops on their car and Dean yells at the bird and the bird calls him a douchebag. He realizes he can hear all animals since the colonel tells him they share a universal language. The bird tells him he’s getting ready to drop a bigger load and Dean goes nuts.

They stop and Sam wants to leave the colonel in the car and says the windows are down. Dean says that’s not what they like and lets him out. Then he sees a cute poodle and Dean starts to check her out. Then the colonel does too. Sam has to snap him out of it. Dean goes around asking all the other animals about the killer. The dogs are begging him for adoption and treats. Dean didn’t get any clues – just complaints.

One of the dogs calls him over and says he saw everything and will tell him everything if he gets a belly rub. He wants a rub from the big one and looks to Sam. Sam holds the dog and rubs him and tells him he brought a sack for the cats and took them all except for the one he ate. He says there was something written on the sack.

The dog stops talking because Sam stopped rubbing and Dean has to tell him to start petting again. The sack had a restaurant’s name on it. Sam puts the dog back in the cage and he begs for adoption. He really likes Sam and says it was the best belly rub he ever had. On his way out, Dean unlocks all of the cages.

The boys park out back of the restaurant and then break in and head in. They find a picture of Chef Leo and wonder if he’s their guy (he is) but they don’t know that yet. They find a drawer full of painkillers including methadone. Dean hears voices calling for help and says it sounds like little kids. They say if he doesn’t save them the chef will eat them. The mice tell him to look in the fried. There are all kinds of animal body parts and a spell book on shamanism.

Owl parts give you higher IQ. Bear heart gives you strength. He asks the mice why he wanted to eat them and they tell him they’ve got collapsible spines. Sam finds notes cards and they figure out the chef has been making up animal part recipes to get combined and enhanced effects. The boys hear noise in the kitchen and they find some chefs cooking. They tell them they’re health inspectors.

They tell them the chef is having a private party and the brothers tell them they’re in violation and it’s shut down. They send the guys home and prepare to hunt down their killer chef. Sam hears a noise and heads out back. He walks right past the chef who was using chameleon ability to hide against the wall. He slices Sam across the carotid as he tells him that chameleons taste like chicken.

Sam’s eyes glow blue and the wound heals. The chef demands to know how he did it and Sam of course has no idea how he did. The chef knocks him out and says – screw sharktopus, you’re going to be my main dish!

Sam is out cold on the floor and the chef is sharpening his knives. Dean sneaks in and the chef asks why it smells like dog. He says the smell is coming from Dean. Dean shoots and the dude dodges the bullet! He throws a knife at Sam but he dodges it. He beats Dean up and says all dogs should be leashed. He ties Dean to a pole. Dean asks what he’s done to his brother and the chef asks what their mom was smoking when she was pregnant with them.

Chef tells him that he’s going to eat Sam’s heart. Dean sniffs him and realizes he has late stage cancer. Turns out that’s why the chef got with a shaman and started experimenting. He says that the people who got in his way were collateral damage. He says that eating so many predators has turned him into one.

He tells him that taking power from animals doesn’t give him any real power of his own. The chef wonders what he needs to eat to be able to take Dean down. He says he’s going to eat Dean and then eat Sam. He says he doesn’t know what Sam is but with his healing powers, he can cure his cancer. Chef pulls out a wolf heart so he can go dog eat dog on Dean. He holds the heart and chants a spell.

Dean gets his ties undone and leaps at the chef with a cleaver. He fends Dean off and then sprouts dog fangs. He runs into the alley and corners Dean and says wolf trumps dog and Dean says maybe, but not a whole pack. He whistles and all the dogs he let loose come running. They corner the chef and with the colonel leading the way they attack and rip the homicidal chef to pieces.

Dean rushes back in to Sam on the floor. He tries to revive him and then finally calls for Zeke and asks where he is. He tells Sam not to make him lick his face. Sam finally gasps back to consciousness.

Dean brings the colonel to the SNART lunatics and they are thrilled. The dog tells Dean he’ll be pooping wheatgrass with those freaks. Dean says she wishes they could take him on the road with them but they just can’t. The colonel says he gets carsick and didn’t tell him but he barfed in his back seat earlier. Dean isn’t happy.

The colonel tells Dean that dogs aren’t really man’s best friend. He says dogs were really put there to… and then he barks and Dean can’t understand because the spell wore off!

Dean tells Sam the bad news is that he’ll miss the fleabag and the good news is that the spell has worn off. Sam can’t stop obsessing about why the chef asked him “what” he was. Dean says the chef was jacked up on drugs and animal parts and that you can’t reason with crazy. Sam’s not sure but Dean tells him he has nothing to worry about.

They get in the car and drive away.
