XII : Winchester Brothers Report : “Either you get good fast or you get dead faster.”

Supernatural “Ladies Drink Free” (12.16) | air date March 30, 2017.
The Winchester brothers hunt down a werewolf. Mick Davies tags along.

Overall grade : 6/10

This is the obligatory Claire episode of the season and I didn’t have high expectations for it. A good chunk of the episode focuses on Claire Novak. Her journey as a budding hunter, her fear of disappointing Jody, yet another instance of her being assaulted by males, her growth as a young woman and her realization that yes, people will show up for her, the traumatized and abandoned orphan girl who’s been alone too long. All this is fine and dandy, but ultimately of little interest to me, when it revolves around a character as off-putting as Claire Novak. Well, that’s it for the star of this episode. Moving on to the top-billed of this record breaking American sci-fi series!

The Winchesters, individually and as a team, had good moments, like Dean expressing his love for the three-star life, Sam geeking out about ancient lore, or kicking butt in a nice action sequence with the werewolf. Things became dicey whenever the brothers’ allegiance to the BMOL was thrown into the mix.

I noticed a general theme of opposites and compromises. The episode played a lot on Sam and Dean as opposites. It put Dean against Mick, and also, Sam and Dean against Mick. Each character had to soften their stance in order to reach a compromise with the others, a compromise that did not strike me as organic, a term I’ve used before to describe the Winchesters’ puzzling decisions when it comes to the British Men of Letters.

Hedonistic Hunter versus Geek Men of Letters : “Wow. Those three stars are wasted on you.”

Just as I anticipated, Dean doesn’t enjoy working for the British Men of Letters. He also didn’t miss an opportunity to tear Mick down. I found his jabs personal, hitting below the belt, and not even England was spared. Dean clearly had a problem with Mick. The way he chose to grieve his fallen colleagues: “Well that is some world class repression. You are British.” His personality: “Downtown Abbey boring”. Like the late Wally, Dean Winchester doesn’t respect a man who fights monsters from behind a desk instead of on the field, an “amateur hour” and a“dead weight”, in need of a baby sitter. Again, like Wally, with whom he had a few things in common as I noticed in “Stuck In the Middle”, Dean sees Mick is a “limey” son of a bitch, too delicate (“Your Lordship”) to withstand the rigors of the field.

Dean was also quick to reject the BMOLs’ innovations. “Fancy crap”, to which he prefers the silver bullets John taught him how to use. Even when Mick did something right, book a suite in a nice hotel where Dean slept like a baby, enjoyed  complimentary chocolates and a dip in the pool, Dean flat out refused to “give him the satisfaction”: “I had better night’s sleep in my Baby”. Ouch.

Sam on the hand, has more experience with Mick. They’ve worked together before, experienced the terror of being under siege and survived to tell the tale. They’ve been in communication with each other, while Dean was being kept out of the loop, and as fellow research buffs, they have a few things in common. It explains why Sam was more comfortable and open with Mick. They had a friendly conversation about Mick’s academic background and even shared a Harry Potter reference. They listened to podcasts together and Sam spent the night devouring Mick’s books on post-medieval lore.

It’s no wonder Mick becomes a brief source of tension between Sam and Dean. Dean doesn’t approve of their little friendship: “It’s Sam’s best friend. They’re like nerd soulmates.” and he argues with Sam about what to do when Mick wants to tag along because he doesn’t want him around. During the course of the episode, Dean manhandles Mick to force the truth out of him and threatens to kill him if fails to protect Claire.

The American hunting tradition versus the British innovation: “What we do you can’t learn this crap in a book.”

At times, it seemed that Dean’s pride in the profession he sacrificed, bled and died for, was presented as stubbornness and a resistance to change. All of the sudden, our legendary hunter is set up to represent some sort conservative Old Guard because he’s not salivating at the thought of the toys, contraptions and assorted gizmos the BMOLs developed across the pond. Dean places great value on field experience and buddy, he’s one the best. He also has good instincts, and he proved it again by seeing through Mick’s charade and getting him to admit that he killed the teenage girl who was bitten by the werewolf.

Sam had to face yet another ugly truth about the BMOLs. They succeed in wiping out entire races of monsters in part because they don’t make exceptions. It’s their “code”, and it goes against what Sam stands for. We’ve seen Sam fight for the ‘good monster’ since the beginning of the show. Lenore, in “Bloodlust”. Madison, in “Heart”, and many others, including himself, and his brother when they each turned. At the beginning of season 11, he renewed his commitment to saving first and killing second. I wonder when Sam is going to find out what really happened to Magda.

I wonder if Garth is safe, now that the brothers have mentioned him, and I wonder why Sam continues to work for an organization founded on the belief that all monsters must go. It brings me to the realization that Sam’s dream of a monster-less world is incompatible with his philosophy of hunting. Some of those monsters he spared might reproduce, create monsters they can’t control (see the werewolf from “Bitten” who couldn’t get a handle on her sister’s hunger in “Paper Moon”), or end up falling off the wagon anyway, like Lenore. There will always be, monsters.

Compromise or Contrivance? “We’ll give you a second chance.”

Boys, please. Don’t talk about it. Be about it.

“I had orders.” By the end of the episode, Mick is questioning his beliefs after witnessing the “walking miracle” of a monster he cured himself. It seems the goal of the episode was to win Mick over to the idea that, contrary to what the BMOL code states, some monsters deserve a chance. Another goal was to soften Dean’s stance against Mick, a symbol of an organization Dean doesn’t trust. And finally, bring the brothers to a point where, they inexplicably choose the BMOLs all over again, after learning that the organization operates in accordance with rules that go against their beliefs.

Contrivance.

Sam’s decision to enlist after being privy to the incompetence of the BMOLs didn’t make sense in “The Raid”. Neither did his repeated statements that the Alpha Vamp was dead because of them. Dean made it clear in “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell” that he had one condition: if something stinks, we bounce. Where is the logic in Dean sticking around, when Mick smelled like a three-day old basket of rotten fish and lies throughout the episode. Sam and Dean were big and bad, barking at Mick that they were DONE, and then they decided to give him another chance.

Sure Sam was right, Mick had valuable knowledge, the werewolf cure. And? The Campbells and the Winchesters have the vampire cure. Mick was useful, he pulled his weight, helped track the infected victim, kill the sire, collect his blood, administer the cure. Okay, nice. That’s what he’s supposed to do if he fancies himself part of the monster killing business. That’s what the Winchesters do all day. I still don’t understand this alliance and I don’t feel the characters choices are making sense. Dean’s especially.

The way the narrative keeps twisting these independent, experienced hunters, into Play Doh puppets who cosign a storyline that turns them into hired guns, doesn’t sit right with me. Wake up Sam and Dean! At least when you sold yourselves in the past, it was to save each other. What are you doing, now? This wobbly BMOL storyline is limping ahead, at the cost of the lead characters’ integrity.

The BMOL prison: “Getting jobs from these dicks is one thing but I didn’t sign up for this reporting for duty crap.”

The minute I heard Mick’s pitch about “A new world, a better world.” I thought the BMOL sounded like a prison for hunters. Sure, a nice looking one, but a loss of freedom nonetheless, and it looks like Dean is already feeling constricted. “I didn’t sign for this reporting for duty crap.” Yet, look at him going back to his bunk for the nightly inmate count. I look at these two in this claustrophobic space made of four grey walls closing in on them as they’re “reporting for duty” and shake my head.

In what universe does Dean Winchester REPORT FOR DUTY. He hasn’t done this since John died and I hate to him see backslide and give up his freedom to follow an organization he doesn’t respect, like or agree with. “Good dogs”. That’s how Ketch describes the people who work for the BMOLs.” “The code.” Mick describes the American way of hunting and making executive decisions about monsters as a “luxury”, and yet John Winchester’s sons are signing up for the British camp like sheep! Johnny, if there was ever a time those two needed you to talk some sense into them… Look what your wife’s gotten them into.

Best Dean moments

Dean’s “You get good fast or get dead faster”.
This one doubles as Best quote, a perfect way to summarize young Dean. He got good. Fast. And then he got great.

“Three stars.” My Dean, he likes the finer things and he isn’t ashamed of it. I love his zest for life, his enthusiasm because he’s getting a nice hotel suite with complimentary chocolates and “baby shampoos” that he will be bringing back to the bunker. He’s also raiding the candy bowl. “I’m ruined, Sam. These limey sons of bitches ruined me.” I know he ordered some Casa Erotica Pay-per-view on Mick’s dime too.

Dean treating Claire to a nice meal. Not only is Dean enjoying the good life on Mick’s dime, he’s sharing the wealth, Mick’s wealth. He looks so pleased with himself. Adorable.

Dean’s reaction to the podcast. This is the face of a man who’s trapped in Post-medieval lore podcast Hell, and has to drive at night to the Sounds of Boredom. An extra pair of chocolates on your pillow, baby. You earned it.

Best Sam moments

Sam’s adorable reaction to finding out he and Dean get separate rooms. Aww, even if they each have their rooms in the bunker, they still rent one room every time they’re on the road and Sam doesn’t know how to react to the change. My babies.

Hero Sam to the rescue. Loved the way he swooped in. It reminded me of that time he rushed toward Charlie after she was injured from Cain!Dean beating up her Dark Double. Gentle giant…
On another note, are Sam and Dean sharing clothes because I swear Dean has this shirt too.

Sam enjoying his “educational” podcast and looking unbothered when he knows he’s driving Dean up the wall. That’s cruel, Sam, and funny, and probably the reason why Dean tossed those keys in your face when he finally reached the hotel.

Note to Dean. The tall guy’s not the valet, but how cute is Sam in that scene. Ugh, I can’t deal with how much I love these two.

Best broment

“You brought a swimsuit?” And Sam’s preoccupation with Dean’s undergarments continues. Now help me out, friends. Does this means Dean recycled one of his briefs into a swimsuit? Or are we to understand he went into the water in his birthday suit? Either way, I’m going to need the camera footage, of Dean, in that pool.

Funniest moments

Sam geeking out and Dean giving him the mother of all side eyes. A moment that captures the boys’ relationship with Mick Davies perfectly. Sam’s open to learning more about Mick and Dean judging Sam, hard, for connecting with Mick on a nerd level. Any level really. Mercy. Jensen’s face. He’s just so good at The Face. All The Faces.

“I’ve had better night’s sleep in my baby.” Dean being petty and hilarious as he refuses to give Mick the satisfaction. He’s a tough customer and just won’t give an inch. Ha!

Final verdict: “Don’t tell me how to do my job.”

There’s much I enjoyed about “Ladies Drink Free”. It’s one of those episodes that would have worked well for me without the supporting cast. Claire brought the grade down and while I’ve always liked Mick and enjoyed him in this episode, something in the writing of the BMOL plot and the way the brothers relate to it is simply not working for me.

So… the Winchesters are signing up for the “Terrible Life”.
The open road, the fight, the freedom to make decisions about their cases.
That’s the DNA of the show, and its history, written in blood, sweat, tears, and death.

I love the Hunter. The Hunter Winchester and everything he used to stand for and I don’t care about the British Men of Letters so called “better way”. I don’t like that the “librarians” (hey Cuthbert!) are trying to absorb symbols of American hunting into their silver cage of gizmos and regimented cases.

I find the Winchester way more admirable, messier sure, but so much more interesting, and I’m disappointed (not shocked but still) that the narrative is making Dean go back on his own word to continue to drink the BMOL Kool-aid. I want the brothers hunting renegade-style, not reporting to some dude who didn’t know which way was up, when a handful of vampires came a-knocking.

“You put on a flannel, you pick up a gun, you go out there. Either you get good fast or you get dead faster.”

That’s beautiful Dean. And that’s hunting. And you didn’t need overseers to stop apocalypses 1 through 15, so why start now?

I’m going hunting. I’m the hunter.

Merci,

Vee

  1. I rated “Ladies Drink for Free” a bit higher than you did simply because of the Dean/Sam dialogues that show the relationship we all seem to buy into for the show. It is the heart beat of the show. Even tossing the keys to Sam or telling him to get the bags is so Dean. And Sam geeking out on technology/lore is so Sam. The action scenes are well done
    Clearly, Mick is going to be found out by the Winchesters as to his clean up activities with Mr. Ketch and the following orders from the BMOL which will not sit well with either hunter brother. Are the BMOL not monsters of a sort? Sam is being seduced by the scholarly aspect and like Mary can envision a world without monsters- this is something he could accept. Dean reminded me of the time he and Sam had to work for Samuel in season 6 and he hated waited and taking orders from Grandpa Cambell so that is very much in his DNA.
    It is a monster of the week episode, but here Claire is the central victim. Obviously, she has decided the hunting life is for her despite attempts to go to school- echo Sam here. It did strike me odd that she goes off alone after a tiff with Sam- to be attacked by the werewolf who clearly is looking for companionship. And Sam lets her go only to sort of save her, but she really is not in danger of dying, just changing. Is this the way characters grow/change? Charlie surely did as time when on and look what happened to her with Sam sort of making her continue her search for the Grimoire. Echo.
    It is nice to hear Garth mentioned and know he is still controlling his lycanthropy… or is he? But the sudden “cure” for Claire does show the BMOL do have some valuable knowledge. Too bad it wasn’t found in time to save Garth( or Madison). But show must was in its infancy then and Garth’s disappearance needed to be explained. Seems as if being truthful is a trope this season.
    I think Dean’s put downs of Mick were a bit too much at times. Be-rating the BMOL is one thing, but taking on England, come on now. And if Dean only knew what Mick and Ketch have been up to. And he will. And yes it is contrived that Dean and Sam give Mick another chance…otherwise where would this whole BMOL theme go? It shows how Dean and Sam are still willing to give “second chances” and in his own way Mick is a type of monster. Good intentions echo again. Dean and Sam have been known to make a few misjudgements in the past. Here they pick the wrong dude as the monster and rectify it. Having given Mick a second chance… will be rectified I believe as well. Dean references shades of grey in hunting- another echo- he has changed his pov as well over the years.Flannel will prevail, I believe. And this episode acts as a bridge to set up the last part of season 12 as well as set the table for season 13.
    The pacing is swift in this episode. The action scenes well choreographed. Eating the heart scene-perfect for the genre.
    Like how the first victim references horror movies and noises in the woods. Claire seems to be making her choice and does finally belong to a family. Is that the point of the episode? Sam and Dean are family. Claire is bonded to them as well as Jodi and Alex.
    I did not seem to miss Crowley,Lucifer, or Castiel so much in this episode as it is werewolf centered and those are not usually angel/demon episodes anyway.
    Take aways… Sam is getting old according to Claire( as Dean was for Krissy). Echo.
    Dean can enjoy the better side of life but Baby is his well go to.
    I do not think Sam is tracking Dean’s underwear but security camera footage of that dip in the pool would be nice to have. Why did the werewolf bartender wear a scream mask?
    So closer to an 7.5-8 on my scale. The episode entertains, reveals, and moves ahead. Anyone think that Claire is part of a spin off project as she drives down the road in a closing scene echoing the WInchesters and Baby for so many episodes?

    1. “I rated “Ladies Drink for Free” a bit higher than you did simply because of the Dean/Sam dialogues that show the relationship we all seem to buy into for the show.

      Couldn’t agree more that Sam and Dean and their bond is the heart of the show. The episode would have received a higher grade if it were a regular MOTW. Sam and Dean’s presence in an episode usually guarantees a 5 (unless they’re written completely OOC). Them being as awesome as they were would have taken the episode to at least an 8. Unfortunately, they weren’t alone and I subtract points for elements that diminish my enjoyment: Claire eating up screen time and the boys being written like puppets to make the BMOL plot ‘work’ (it’s still not working though lol).

      “Clearly, Mick is going to be found out by the Winchesters as to his clean up activities with Mr. Ketch and the following orders from the BMOL which will not sit well with either hunter brother.”

      I don’t trust these new versions of Sam and Dean to do a thing about it. If their actions were to make sense, they would have never agreed to work with the BMOL to begin with but since Dabb wants to force the Librarians on them, he has them hand wave every single shady thing they find out about the BMOL.

      “Are the BMOL not monsters of a sort? Sam is being seduced by the scholarly aspect and like Mary can envision a world without monsters- this is something he could accept.”

      I don’t think the BMOL are monsters as a rule, save for the killing of the humans (soldiers), which I wonder if it’s part of their code, or Ketch taking initiative. I never bought wholesale into Sam’s idea that monsters needed to be saved. It’s a paradox, I know. because Sam and Dean should have been killed a long time ago but when I buy into a show, I buy into its premise.

      Sam and Dean hunt monsters. They’re the exception in the sense that they can’t be killed when they turn into monsters themselves. Everybody else is fair game, kinda. I’m one of those who didn’t flinch when Ketch killed Magda. Lenore turned. Kate infected her sister who left a trail of bodies in her wake before Kate finally put her down.

      Eh. I was fine with Gordon’s black and white view of things. Are you monster killers or not? Okay, Sam wants to be a monster killer who makes exceptions. Cool. But as much as I love him, he comes across extremely naive when he claims to fight for a world without monsters. Which is it?

      Either be about it like the BMOL, or accept that some of your exceptions are GOING to fall off the wagon, start feeding, start killing and making MORE monsters. Back to square one, and then some. In conclusion, every monster Sam lets go is a ticking time bomb and by letting them go, he’s actively working to make sure the world is never truly rid of monsters.

      “Dean reminded me of the time he and Sam had to work for Samuel in season 6 and he hated waited and taking orders from Grandpa Cambell so that is very much in his DNA.”

      It reminded me of that too. Or when Crowley was blackmailing him, forcing him to hunt Alphas in exchange for Sam’s soul.

      “It is a monster of the week episode, but here Claire is the central victim. Obviously, she has decided the hunting life is for her despite attempts to go to school- echo Sam here. It did strike me odd that she goes off alone after a tiff with Sam- to be attacked by the werewolf who clearly is looking for companionship. And Sam lets her go only to sort of save her, but she really is not in danger of dying, just changing.”

      What could Sam have done? Claire is not a child and he can’t physically restrain her and force her to stay with him for her safety. He went to her rescue because he heard her scream. Changing is a bigger danger than dying in a way. At least with dying the pain is over. With the change, Claire’s life is forever turned upside down, she’s officially a monster and a danger to every living human. Again, I don’t believe every monster with good intentions is capable of reigning in their true nature. For some of them, those instincts and urges are stronger than willpower. I will never forget Sam bargaining with the rugaru. It’s not who you are, it’s what you do. I was shaking my head so hard. That poor man was no longer in control of himself once the beast took over and no amount of pep talk was going to change that. Some monsters can’t be helped.

      “It is nice to hear Garth mentioned and know he is still controlling his lycanthropy… or is he?”

      I was happy to hear from him too and he’s one of those raaaaare exceptions I would bet on controlling the disease, for a time (he semi hulked out when his wife was threatened in Sharp Teeth, proof that the monster is never far). Garth as a human cultivated calm, serenity and a positive outlook on life. He could manage to hold on to that ingrained part of his human self as a wolf.

      And that’s one thing I appreciated about Claire. She knows she’s not in control as a human. There isn’t a chance in Hell she would be as a beast. I would bet on Garth controlling his wolf, as long as he isn’t exposed to external stressors (and frankly, life doesn’t allow you to go stress-free forever). Claire wouldn’t last a full moon. There’s too much anger and helplessness in her original make up for her to have the means to control an angry wolf violently taking her over a couple nights a month for the rest of her life.

      “But the sudden “cure” for Claire does show the BMOL do have some valuable knowledge. Too bad it wasn’t found in time to save Garth( or Madison). But show must was in its infancy then and Garth’s disappearance needed to be explained. Seems as if being truthful is a trope this season.”

      It’s like the vampire cure that was only ‘discovered’ when Dean was turned in season 6. This tells me Claire is an important character to the writers.

      “I think Dean’s put downs of Mick were a bit too much at times.”

      Me too. He was over-the-top with it. It’s like, buddy, if you’re so annoyed to be working with the Brits, quit. You enlisted, no need to abuse Mick because you’re feeling ambivalent about your decision. I had no problem with him getting tough on Mick when Mick was lying but at time he came across like a tyrant. He’s my fave but I know he’s far from perfect.

      “Be-rating the BMOL is one thing, but taking on England, come on now.”

      To borrow the words of the only Ruby I can stand (I don’t count the maid), “don’t be such a racist” lol.

      “And if Dean only knew what Mick and Ketch have been up to. And he will. And yes it is contrived that Dean and Sam give Mick another chance…otherwise where would this whole BMOL theme go?”

      Yep. Twisting the Winchesters into pretzels to keep a shadowy organization plotline on life support. The “Bloodlines” way.

      “It shows how Dean and Sam are still willing to give “second chances” and in his own way Mick is a type of monster. Good intentions echo again. Dean and Sam have been known to make a few misjudgements in the past.”

      They most certainly have, and in accordance with my theory on monsters, I never begrudged Gordon and Anna for trying to kill Sam. If you’re in the monster killer, kill monsters. Speaking of Sam and Dean’s questionable methods in choosing exceptions, I was so mad at them for forcing the pishtaco lady to shut down her spa by basically deporting her (“one-way ticket to Peru”).

      Here you have a monster who’s found THE way to feed, not only not hurting, but HELPING people, and your solution is to punish her for her brother’s (who is no longer a threat) actions, take the chance that she’ll go hungry (is she supposed to rebuild a luxury spa from scratch) and have to start killing the old school way. My boys. Love them but sometimes… they do act like the “functioning morons” Crowley loves to make fun of.

      “Here they pick the wrong dude as the monster and rectify it. Having given Mick a second chance… will be rectified I believe as well.”

      I hope so 🙂

      “Dean references shades of grey in hunting- another echo- he has changed his pov as well over the years.Flannel will prevail, I believe. And this episode acts as a bridge to set up the last part of season 12 as well as set the table for season 13.”

      Flannel will prevail!!!! Love this so much, Deb! :DDDD

      “The pacing is swift in this episode. The action scenes well choreographed. Eating the heart scene-perfect for the genre. Like how the first victim references horror movies and noises in the woods.”

      Yes to all of this.

      “Claire seems to be making her choice and does finally belong to a family. Is that the point of the episode? Sam and Dean are family. Claire is bonded to them as well as Jodi and Alex.”

      The point of this season is to show that everybody’s family to the Winchesters.

      “Take aways… Sam is getting old according to Claire( as Dean was for Krissy). Echo.”

      Yep, and I can’t wait for the day Claire joins Krissy in the land of disappeared rude teenagers.

      “I do not think Sam is tracking Dean’s underwear”

      I beg to differ lol: “You’ve been wearing the same pair of boxers for four days.”, but I’ll agree to disagree ❤

      “but security camera footage of that dip in the pool would be nice to have.”

      Fingers crossed for the gag reel. Last season, we did get to see Dean in his “Baby” shorts.

      “Why did the werewolf bartender wear a scream mask?”

      So we wouldn’t know he was the culprit when Dean interrogated him. It also fit nicely with the teen horror theme they had going on. “Hello, Sidney…'” I mean “Hello, Claire…” 😉

      “So closer to an 7.5-8 on my scale. The episode entertains, reveals, and moves ahead. Anyone think that Claire is part of a spin off project as she drives down the road in a closing scene echoing the WInchesters and Baby for so many episodes?”

      The episode had a lot going for itself. I also love that echo you mentioned of Claire driving away like the Winchesters. Some fans have been campaigning hard for a Wayward Daughters spin off that would involve Claire, Alex and Jody. CW boss said he wasn’t giving up on the idea of a spin off for SPN. I’m biased because I don’t believe a spin off with Claire has a chance at succeeding as she’s not that popular and the Winchester family is the draw for a significant portion of the viewership but I won’t stand in anyone’s way and be happy for them if it takes off.

      Loved reading your thoughts, Debbab.

  2. I enjoyed the episode. I liked Dean being his old snarky self and not taking any guff from Mick. I didn’t mind Claire-shes one of those characters I could take or leave. I enjoyed Sams talk with her though and I like when the boys show feelings for someone other than their brother. Its sweet to watch them around her. I think Mick is going to come clean to the Winchesters -he seems disenchanted with their rules. Need to watch again w/o commercials.

    Best part of the episode-imagining Dean swimming w/o swim trunks 🙂

    1. I liked the brothers in the episode too. I preferred their dynamic with Charlie and I’m sad that she’s gone and now replaced by Claire in the role of the little sister. I hope the guys get smart and find out what Ketch is doing on their own. That way they could dump both Mick and the BMOL.
      We need to find that footage, Barb lmao!
