Supernatural Recap: Halt & Catch Fire
“Supernatural” Season 10 Episode 13 “Halt & Catch Fire” aired on Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. on The CW. The episode kicked off with a couple on the road. Billy uses his GPS on the phone, but it led them to a dead end. Then a voice instructed Janet to get out of the car. When the girl would not listen, the voice yelled. Terrified, both of them tried to get out of the car, but only Janet made it. The car locked the boy inside and moved toward the bridge, which was under reconstruction.
The Winchesters drove to Iowa to interview Janet about what happened. After learning about the details of what really transpired during that unfateful night, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) went to a vehicle impound to check on the dead boy’s pick-up truck. When they found the truck, they burned it.
Another incident involved a girl named Julie. She received a message from a “friend,” who called her a liar. When Julie asked what did she lie about, the friend answered with “810.” Julie, alarmed, tried to shut down her laptop but the 810 message would not stop appearing. The door closed when she tried to run. A plug came into life, choking her to death.
First, a possessed truck; now, a laptop. Dean thought that it was the same ghost, just jumping from one machine to the other. As Sam went through Julie’s laptop, he discovered the thread between Julie and a person named “PrincessElsa8.” The Winchesters tried to figure out what 810 meant, and the next scene revealed it was 810 Downs Drive. A woman went of the house, and Sam and Dean followed her. While gathering the sets of flowers, the two questioned the woman. She revealed that her husband, Andrew, died there because of a car accident. The Winchesters further asked if the woman felt something weird, a disturbance, after her husband died. Dean proceeded with his questioning if the woman has an idea who leaves the flowers in the pole. The woman said that it was a red-haired college girl.
While in Kyle’s room, Delilah was worried that the feds might find out their involvement with Andrew’s death. Kyle tried to shrug it off by saying that what happened to Julie and Billy is coincidence. When Delilah left, Kyle was killed by his loud music from the wireless speakers. It, as Dean put it, a death by decibel. The clock stopped at 8:10.
Delilah confessed what happened to Sam and Dean. While the four of them were on the road, they were all using their cell phones, including the driver Billy. They did not notice a car was approaching. The car then hit the pole. Delilah told Billy to call 911, but he refused. The car was on fire, and Andrew was not able to get out.
Billy drove as fast as he could and prevented Delilah from calling the cops as he had a suspended license and a record of DUI.
Sam and Dean explained to Delilah that it was a vengeful spirit, a ghost, that was hunting them. They placed Delilah inside the salt circle. The only problem was that they do not know yet how the ghost travels, judging from how he killed his previous victims. Sam went into the scene where Andrew died and realized that he was traveling through WiFi.
The only place that WiFi could not reach is the basement. Dean accompanied Delilah there when a phone suddenly rings. Lo and behold! Andrew was there. Dean managed to send a message to Sam, who was talking to Andrew’s wife. The wife called and begged Andrew to stop killing people. Just like that, Andrew disappeared.
The episode ended with Delilah going to Andrew’s wife’s house for some closure. Meanwhile, Dean told Sam that he will try to fight the Mark of Cain until he cannot fight it anymore.
