Fresh Blood

The episode opens with Bela somewhere in the woods. Gordon suddenly shows up behind her and demands, at gunpoint, to know where Sam is. Bela doesn’t take his demand too kindly, but after a banter-filled (on Bela’s end) conversation, they make a deal, and Bela calls Dean to find out their location.

Important Moments:
Sam and Dean are on the trail of a vampire. They find her and it turns out the girl has been dosed with vampire blood, and she is now an out of control vampire. Sam and Dean have to kill her.

Lucy’s victim ends up in the hospital. Gordon and his friend show up, posing as FBI agents, and interview him to find out if he’ll turn into a vampire. They find out that Sam and Dean are there.

Sam and Dean go to the club Lucy mentioned and see a guy walking away with a blonde. They save her, but Gordon and his friend show up and start shooting at them.

Gordon gets caught by the vampire, who knows who Gordon is. His presence doesn’t make the vampire happy. The vampire then decides to turn Gordon, who freaks out.

Meanwhile, Sam and Dean are discussing what to do about Gordon. Sam says they have to kill him, which surprises Dean, who expected Sam to argue that it was wrong. Bela calls Dean to tell him where Gordon is so that he doesn’t try to kill her.

Sam and Dean show up after Gordon has killed the girls the vampire was holding, attacked a person in a car outside and left. The vampire is having emotional issues because he will have to spend eternity alone. He starts talking about not giving a damn, and it feeling like being dead already. From the look on Dean’s face, the vampire’s words are resonating.

Gordon then goes to visit his friend. He tells him what happened and he knows he has to be killed. Gordon tells his friend to just let him do one last thing – kill Sam Winchester. His friend doesn’t want to do that and tries to kill him from behind, but Gordon hears his heartbeat speed up and turns around and kills him first.

Dean is about to go after Gordon on his own when Gordon calls Dean and has kidnapped a girl that he’s threatening to kill if they don’t show up.

Action Moments:

Sam and Dean do show up and are getting the girl out when Gordon drops a door behind Dean before Sam can get out, trapping Sam in the building. Gordon then shuts the lights down, and Sam puts up a serious knife. Gordon says he’s been turned into a bloodthirsty killer, and Sam argues that he has a choice, pointing out that Gordon didn’t kill the girl. Gordon agrees, but then says he did something much worse. The camera then cuts to Dean, still trying to get into the building, only now he’s unaware the girl he’s with is a vampire. She attacks him, taking him by surprise and kicking him down. He shoots her in the head, and it kills her as we realize he used the Colt.

Meanwhile, Gordon is just going on about his problem with Sam, entirely unaware that he sounds like a crazy lunatic. Gordon then jumps Sam, sending them both flying through the wall, where Dean can now help Sam. Unfortunately, Gordon is stronger than Dean and slams him against the wall. He’s about to bite Dean when Sam hits him. Then Gordon slams Sam’s head into a table multiple times, which looks very painful. Sam is then able to get his knife against Gordon’s throat and just keeps pushing really hard. It’s really disgusting and reminded me of Buffy’s story in the pilot episode where she tells Xander about the time she was fighting a vampire and all she had was an exact knife. Really gross mental picture. Anyway, Sam is able to cut Gordon’s head off and kill him. Both brothers limp away, Dean’s hand on his neck where Gordon bit him.

Best Moment:

In the last scene, Dean is explaining how to fix the car to Sam. A little slower than the audience, who likely already realized the reason, Sam asks Dean why he’s telling him all this. Dean tells him it’s time to learn because he’ll need to know for the future. Then he says what Sam wanted to hear, that it’s his job, because Sam’s his little brother and Dean is supposed to teach him the ropes.

Funniest Moments:

Dean realizes that Gordon knew where they were from Bela and calls her. She tells Dean she meant to call but got sidetracked. She manages to make it sound like Dean is being ridiculous for being upset because there are two of them. He informs her that there was someone with Gordon and threatens to kill her.

Latest Argument About Dean’s Condition:

This one made me tear up a little. Dean wants Sam to stay behind while he goes after Gordon. Sam calls him out for being “dead already” and says that he knows that Dean is scared, even if Dean won’t admit it. Dean tries to say that Sam is bluffing, but Sam tells him that he knows him better than anyone else in the world and he knows he’s terrified and he just wants Dean to be his brother again. Dean calms down and gets quiet, seeming to agree to Sam’s request.

Food Moment:

Impersonation of the Week:

Gordon and his friend impersonate FBI agents.

State of the Week:

New York – they have been in New York a lot lately.

“It’s true.” – Gordon

“Kill me. Good luck finding Sam and Dean.” – Bela

“I’ve been following you around my entire life. I mean, I’ve been looking up to you since I was four, Dean, studying you – trying to be just like my big brother. So yeah, I know you – better than anyone else in the entire world. And this – is exactly how you act when you’re terrified.” – Sam
