Supernatural Season 7, Episode 8 saw Sam walk down the aisle. Here’s a look back at the events of Season Seven, Time for a Wedding!
We’re getting into one of my least favorite episodes of all of Supernatural now, but it’s a Season 7 look back and we need to include it. Episode 8 saw Sam walk down the aisle, but what could possibly make him want to marry Becky?
I won’t get into why I dislike this episode so much, but it is on a similar level to why I dislike “Mystery Spot” so much. There’s a questionable topic used for comedic value, and it just rubs me the wrong way. But it’s all about the episode.
Sam gets married

The two head to Las Vegas, where Sam decides to camp in the desert alone and Dean do what Dean does best, head to all the strip clubs. One night, he gets a message from Sam to get into his suit and meet him at a chapel. Naturally, Dean expects a case, but instead, he finds out that Sam is getting married.
And Sam isn’t getting married to just anyone. It’s to Becky Rosen, the fangirl from Supernatural Season 4.
After the ceremony, Sam explains how he and Becky met up and fell in love. Dean is sure that something strange is going on, but can’t quite figure out what it is.

What’s going on with Becky?
We soon learn something. When Becky and Sam head to the location of the 10-year high school reunion, Becky meets up with a friend called Guy, who slips her a vial of something purple when Sam isn’t looking. Becky makes a comment about how everyone should keep a Wiccan in their pocket.
At the apartment they’re staying in, Sam starts to get a headache and wonders what’s going on. Becky quickly pours the purple liquid in a glass of champagne and gets him to drink it. Now dosed up, Sam is calmer and back in love with Becky.
Dean has followed Sam and Becky but doesn’t see the vial exchange but he does notice something interesting in the local paper about a man killed in a freak accident after winning the lottery. Knowing something is wrong, Dean decides to pay Sam a visit and pretend that he’s being supportive. There’s a case here.
The lottery winner isn’t the only crazy thing. Someone who made it to the majors was shot by and killed by a pitching machine. It turns out Sam and Becky are currently on the case, which they thought was a crossroads demon at first but the victims don’t make it to 10 years, so maybe it’s a cursed object.
Dean knows that Becky is up to something, but he doesn’t know what. However, Sam thinks that Dean is upset about being alone.
As much as I dislike the episode, the saving grace is Garth’s introduction, someone Bobby brings in on the case to help. It’s a great introduction and necessary comedic moments for the episode. Dean’s surprise when he meets Garth is a picture, but you just knew that Garth was going to turn out to be a loyal friend.
Dean and Garth work the case, while Sam and Becky work it from their side. It’s soon clear that this is a crossroad demon but with a twist. Dean is sure that Sam and Becky are involved somehow.
Meanwhile, Sam gets another headache and Becky is out of purple liquid. In a panic, Becky hits Sam over the head and knocks him out before tying him to the bed. When Sam wakes, he accuses her of drugging him with a love potion, but she tries to blame her friend, Guy, and that he’s the reason for all the deaths and deals.
It turns out Guy was involved. He’s a crossroad demon and now he wants Becky’s soul. He’ll even offer Becky 25 years with Sam as a loving husband and that there won’t be any accidents in the meantime.
Becky eventually pretends to agree to the deal, but instead traps the demon in a devil’s trap. She even turned to Dean and Garth, who used blueberry vodka to create the devil’s trap and got to Sam. This leads to Guy explaining how he gets away with negating on his deal: accidents happen.
Crowley appears in the end, unhappy with Guy’s actions. Sticking to deals is essential to get souls in the future. Crowley will even fix Guy’s deals as long as the Winchesters had over the demon. In fact, Crowley will cancel all of Guy’s deals, and that’s exactly what he does.
With the case over, Becky and Sam sign the annulment papers necessary with Garth and Dean as witnesses. That’s that relationship over with!
