Gloria Jane, a TV news reporter, is conducting an interview with Dick Roman, questioning him about his company's acquisition of SucroCorp and how Americans will be helped to live longer and healthier lives through the use of sucrose. Afterwards, Dick orders Susan to have a Leviathan replace Gloria and become their representative in the media while he examines the Word of God tablet. He then goes to see Kevin Tran, who he's holding prisoner, and tries to get him to translate the Word. After his bribe with a letter of recommendation to Princeton doesn't work, Dick has Edgar threaten to kill Kevin's mom whom they have also kidnapped. Kevin gets to work—again.
Meanwhile, the Winchesters are back at the cabin trying to figure out the meaning of the tablet. In the bathroom, Bobby reappears and tells Dean that the other two ingredients they need, besides the blood of a fallen angel, are Crowley's blood and blood from an alpha monster. He gets a bit angry and even cracks the mirror and slams a laptop's lid shut, but insists he's okay. The brothers decide to summon Crowley. Back at SucroCorp, Kevin has finished translating the Word and Edgar orders for his mom to be released. Dick, however, does not let Kevin go, but tells Edgar to pay an old friend of his a visit.
At the cabin, Crowley agrees to give Dean and Sam his blood, but only when they've got all the other components for the Leviathan-killing weapon. His reason: he doesn't want his enemies to get their hands on his blood. He also mentions that obtaining blood from an angel will probably be the hardest to acquire, unaware that Castiel is alive and that he gave his blood to the brothers already. Crowley disappears, leaving behind the location of the very much alive Alpha Vampire: Hoople, ND. While on their way there, Sam and Dean stop at a gas station for some food. They begin to discuss Bobby's situation and start to notice that all of the people around them seem to be stoned. They realize that people are high from the corn syrup in the foods they're eating, just like the people who ate turducken sandwiches in 7.09 How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters. Dean starts to freak out, asking Sam what he's supposed to eat from now on and Sam shows him bananas and water.
They finally reach the Alpha Vampire's lair and Bobby goes inside to do a little recon. He tells the brothers there's something they need to see: the bodies of a few dead vampires with burnt mouths. They also find a secret room hidden behind a wall and a young girl inside it. Her name is Emily, and she's says she was taken by the Alpha Vampire 12 years ago from a playground and has been kept pure all this time for the Alpha Vampire to feed on as a delicacy. She explains how the vampires, except for one who is now hunting animals, in the lair all died: they fed on some humans who didn't even put up a fight. Sam reasons that the leviathan-tainted corn syrup is responsible. Emily also reveals that the vampires have another retreat and offers to take the brothers there. Later, the sole surviving vampire returns and discovers that Emily is gone. Edgar is there, however, and demands to know where the Alpha Vampire is. The vampire attacks Edgar, who easily subdues him and takes on his form and memories. Once he knows the alpha's location, Edgar kills the vampire.
The next day while the Winchesters are out shopping for fruits and veggies, Dean points out that they should get some contaminated blood from the people dosed by the corn syrup to use against the vampires rather than using dead man's blood which does not kill them. They take some blood with a syringe from a man on a bench and nobody, not even the man himself, really notices. Later that night, with some guidance from Emily, they find the alpha's hideout: a manor near a monastery. Vampires stand outside, guarding the place. Dean and Sam drop Emily off at a motel and leave Bobby's flask there as well, in a safe. When they open the door to leave, it slams shut. The brothers assure Emily that it was just the wind and leave, telling Bobby that they’ll be back soon. Once they're gone, Emily takes out a cell phone and calls the Alpha Vampire. She informs him that the Winchesters are coming for him and then leaves the room.
Sam and Dean arrive at the manor and attempt to get inside. Unfortunately, they're jumped by the vampires. Meanwhile, back at the motel room, Bobby becomes enraged, seeing Gloria's interview with Dick on the TV. He tries to open the safe and gets really frustrated when he can't, causing everything in the room to shake. The maid, Louise, comes in and Bobby possesses her. Realizing that the safe combination is his birthday, he manages to open it, taking the flask and leaving to go after Dick. At the manor, the brothers try to talk with the Alpha Vampire about the corn syrup that is capable of drugging humans and killing vampires that feed on them, but he says he is on good terms with the leviathans. Sam tries to get him to understand that the leviathans are not their friends and that they are making humans poisonous to vampires. A young boy named Allan comes in and tells the Alpha that Edgar is here to see him. He orders his vampires to lock the brothers up in the study without their weapons. Edgar shows up and immediately senses that the Winchester are there.
Sam figures that the Alpha is giving the leviathans the benefit of the doubt. Dean points out that Edgar will just most likely get rid of him. He also reveals that he has hidden a syringe of corn syrup tainted blood in his shoe and hands Sam a needle to pick the lock on the door. When they get out, they're attacked by a vampire, who they easily kill with the contaminated blood. In the meantime, Edgar tells the Alpha that his vampires being killed by the food additive was a mistake. The alpha wants to know why he hasn't seen Dick in a while and Edgar gives him the truth: the food additive will kill any monster that feeds on humans except for Leviathan, which is exactly what they want. The Alpha Vamp pushes Edgar, who pushes back, then throws borax in his face. Edgar, however, recovers, knocks the vampire to the floor, and tries to take all his blood. Just then, Dean arrives and distracts him long enough for Sam to sneak up behind and decapitate him. The Alpha Vampire gives the brothers his blood as thanks for stopping Edgar and even releases Allan, too. He taunts them, saying they hate to leave unfinished business, but Dean promises they'll meet up again and kill him.
They return Allan to his parents and go back to the motel to find out that Bobby is gone, along with his flask, with no idea how to track him down. Dean points out sadly, that they've got no allies now, save for Crowley. Unfortunately, however, Crowley is summoned into a devil's trap by Dick Roman.
