I could be more useful to you. People underestimate a woman.
– Josie Sands, 9.17 Mother's Little Helper
Josie Sands is a young woman in training to become initiated to the Men of Letters. After taping Father Max Thompson's efforts to cure a demon, Josie became known to Abaddon who she encounters while investigating possible demonic possession at a convent in Milton, Illinois. Josie volunteers to be possessed to spare Henry Winchester and Abaddon uses her to find out more about the Men of Letters. Using Josie, Abaddon destroys the Men of Letters and travels to 2013 where she is trapped in Josie's body, cut up and buried. After being put back together and escaping, Abaddon is forced to flee Josie by being doused in holy fire. However, she simply gets a demon to restore Josie's body for her to possess once again as she launches a crusade to take over Hell.
Abaddon, using Josie as a meatsuit, she slaughters the Men of Letters and follows Henry Winchester through the portal to 2013. Josie is eventually dismembered with Abaddon still inside of her, tied to her body with a devil's trap bullet.
Sam and Dean discover a film made by Josie in the Bunker's archives of a new type of exorcism performed by two priests, Father Max Thompson and Father Simon aimed at curing a demon and making it human again. The attempt fails and the demon escapes while the old woman it was possessing dies horribly.
After finding out how to cure a demon, Sam and Dean put Abaddon, still possessing Josie, back together but leave off her hands. Abaddon reveals that she killed Father Thompson beasue it had become known that he was developing a way to cure a demon. She killed him and then used Josie to infiltrate and destroy them.
Abaddon has a demon perform a ritual that restores Josie's badly burned corpse, allowing her to take Josie as her meatsuit once again. However, it is unclear whether Josie was resurrected as well or if just her body was healed of its burns.
In 1958, Josie and Henry Winchester are sent on a field mission before their initiation to investigate possible demonic possession at a convent in Milton, Illinois. Josie poses as a nun and is disgruntled due to not liking nuns because of her previous Catholic School education. She comforts Henry about his doubts about being a member of the Men of Letters. While investigating the dead nun's room, Josie recognizes a symbol on the wall as meaning the Knights of Hell and asks Henry what it is. Later, tracking the four demons responsible, Josie and Henry burst in on them as they prepare their next victims and perform an exorcism. While two of the demons are exorcised, one proves to be immune and knocks out Henry. The demon reveals herself to be Abaddon, the demon responsible for what's going on. When Abaddon goes to possess Henry to learn about and infiltrate the Men of Letters, Josie volunteers herself instead. Abaddon says its because Josie is in love with Henry who Abaddon tells her only loves her as a sister. Abaddon accepts Josie's offer and possesses her. Abaddon pretends to still be Josie, telling Henry they defeated the demons while in reality she has ordered the remaining demon to play dead and continue their work. Henry leaves with Abaddon, unaware of the fact that she is not Josie.
In the present, Sam learns of what occurred with Henry and Josie from Julia Wilkinson who witnessed it all and knew Henry and Josie's true identities as members of the Men of Letters.
