The Hardy Boys Tell Lies, and I Got Proof

Meanwhile, out in some rain-drenched wilderness, Bobby walks up to the front porch of a log cabin, where he warily eyes the Enochian sigil painted on the cabin's door before knocking. Soon enough, a petite blonde answers, and it's Doctor Visyak, and I'm getting sick of looking up her name every time I have to type it, so you'll forgive me if I skip ahead to the part where she admits she's the Eleanor from The Elderly Gent's surprisingly shocking photograph. "You're forgiven!" Thanks, Raoul. "Don't mention it! [Slurp!]" Yep, Doctor "Ellie," as Bobby familiarly calls her, is actually a 900-year-old Purgatorial beastie who's been inhabiting the body of The Elderly Gent's mother since that fateful night in 1937. "So, what's your game, then?" Bobby grumbles. No game, Doc Ellie claims, and no grand design on the Earth's inhabitants, either. She simply much prefers her current existence as a professor of Medieval Studies at "San Francisco University" to her previous existence as one of Mother's tormented offspring. "I happen to like it here," she shrugs, "and I don't want to see this place turned into some bloody wasteland." "So," Bobby prompts, "you killed H. P. Lovecraft?" "Please," Eleanor eyerolls. "That guy couldn't even write 'hello.'" And that's not an answer to Bobby's question at all, but perhaps this is: "I have spent seventy-five years trying to keep Purgatory closed." So, yeah, I'm thinking she took out Lovecraft and all of his besties in the year following her release. "Atta girl! [Slurp!]" You really didn't like that guy, did you, hon'? "I most certainly did not! Feh!" Well, we'll leave it at that, then, shall we? "We shall indeed!" Good.

Now, where were we? Oh, yes: So, Bobby apparently buys Eleanor's story, warns her that Castiel's coming to find her for whatever mysterious reason, pleads with her to let him in on the secret to opening Purgatory's door, and offers to help hide her until this entire ungodly mess blows over. Eleanor thanks him for the heads-up, refuses to divulge what she knows, and declines his gallant offer of protection. "You're just a man," she points out, adding slyly, "I'm better off protecting myself." Bobby has nothing to say to that, so let's leap ahead with the camera as it scoots over to...

...The Emporium kitchen, where it finds Darling Sammy pouring himself a healthy shot of something soothing. "Atta girl! [Slurp!]" Barely has the glass touched his lips, however, when Belthazor flutters in unannounced to mock at him for whatever snide reason. "Party pooper! [Slurp!]" Chit-chat ensues, with Belthazor eventually announcing his decision to betray Castiel and, after Dean has joined them, he explains that he's still not convinced My Sweet Baboo can handle sucking up eighty or ninety million monster souls, so from now on, he's happy to function as Our Intrepid Heroes' "double agent." To that end, he's already located Bendy Lisa and The Brat, and while Crowley's angel-proofed their prison, thereby preventing him from rescuing them himself, he can flutter the boys over to that prison's general location. Sam and Dean are all, "Let's do this!" so the next thing we know, we've...
