Supernatural season 7 continues with episode 19, "Of Grave Importance." Everything's changing, but at least the tacos Sam and Dean have picked up for dinner never do. After planning to meet Sam and Dean for lunch, Annie drives up to the Van Ness house. Teenagers stop kissing on the couch and go to leave, only for a man to run at them. Annie finds their bodies, and the door closes behind her.
Dean reads that Dick's funding another archaeological dig, but it doesn't say what for. It turns out Bobby, Dean, and (soulless) Sam all had "things" with Annie, who's not answering her phone. Speaking of Bobby, the flask rocks on the table and he's hanging in the backseat of the car. While Dean wishes they could see him again, he knows they shouldn't. It's a good thing he can't pack it up just yet.
In Annie's motel room, they go over her research. The Van Ness house is on one of those most haunted houses lists. Bobby keeps trying to reach out, but it's no use. At least Dean returns for his jacket (and the flask) when they head out. In the Van Ness house, Bobby can see all the ghosts and awkwardly introduces himself. While Dean calls Annie and they follow the sound of her phone, Bobby sees one ghost scolding Dexter for what he didÂ—and he sees Annie. After clueing her in on what happened to her, he finds out she hasn't seen a reaper and she finds out he ran from his. He argues he has unfinished business. So does sheÂ—the teenagers who wander around aimlessly.
Dean plays a message from Annie's phone from a phone number of asterisks. When they see a ghost move a chair, Bobby and Annie try to reach out, and after Bobby falls through a trunk, Crane tells them they have to calm down and tell the object what to do to move itÂ—or use "explosive anger." Bobby keeps trying, but he's not getting anywhere. Sam and Dean still haven't found anything and head out to do more research. Annie and Bobby notice a ghost looking their way, and she introduces herself as Victoria, a "fancy lady." She left the message on Annie's phone for her help. Bobby disappears and reappears in the backseat as Dean drinks from the flask in the car.
Sam and Dean get the history of the house from Quentin: Dexter, the groundskeeper, apparently killed Whitman Van Ness' fiancÃ©e. Quentin talked to Annie and told her to stay awayÂ—just like he tells them. Back in the motel, as Dean showers, Sam reads that Dexter killed hookers, returned to the house, and was found shot to death. Why did he go back to the house? Speaking of the house, two guys enter it with a camera looking for their friends.
After Dean gets dressed, he calls Sam in to show him the message in the steam on the mirror: "Annie trapped in house." Bobby then writes his name. Meanwhile, those two guys encounter Dexter and Whitman, and it's Whitman who kills them. Annie watches as it's revealed that Dexter tried to warn them away, which Whitman did not like. He reaches inside him, and Dexter disappears in a bright light.
A Supernatural Reunion
Victoria tells Annie that they don't interfere with Whitman's work. He drained Dexter; the ghosts are "food to him" and make him so strong. He framed Dexter. Annie has her grab the camera since she can't, and they quickly hide before Whitman returns and drags the bodies off. When Sam and Dean return to the house, Bobby takes the flask and puts it in a drawer. The camera slides out in front of Dean, and they see Annie captured on film. Since Victoria's the only one who can appear to them, Annie makes her do just that. Victoria tells them Annie's there and begins telling them they're in danger from Whitman, but then she burns in front of them. Whitman got to her. As the Winchesters head out, Whitman slips something into Sam's jacket, tagging along.
Bobby's stuck in the house since he stashed the flask, but that means they can do some investigating with Whitman gone. They head to his room, where a fire's going. That's how he took care of Victoria. Bobby finds a secret room behind the bookcase, and that's where all the bodiesÂ—including Annie'sÂ—are. She tells him she wants a hunter's funeral because she's ready for peace. While he had the boys, all she had was work. She's done.
Whitman takes control of the car, leaving Dean to wrestle with him. When they pull over, Sam finds what Whitman put in his pocket, and Dean takes care of it, sending Whitman back to the house. Whitman finds Bobby and Annie and reaches inside of Bobby, but fortunately Sam and Dean burn his bones in time. Bobby collapses, and he comes to moments before Sam and Dean walk inÂ—and see him.
Bobby tells them Annie's there too and shows them the flask when Sam asks how he stayed there. He realizes that he never was able to make contact since Dean always had the flask on him. Bobby explains he wanted to stay and needs to help. After they take care of the bodies and give Annie her hunter's funeral, they pack up the car. Dean points out that he could be in heaven, drinking at Harvelle's. Bobby says they still have work today, and when Dean says it's not right, Bobby flashes out. Dean puts the flask in the trunk.
Sam asks Dean what they should do and if they can make it work. They did what they should do, and this is new territory. This isn't part of the natural order. Dean just points out, "What are the odds this ends well?" Bobby rides along in the backseat.
