After Janie gave birth, she began hemorrhaging, unfortunately the doctors couldn't stop the bleeding, and she passed. As Mike went outside to collect himself, he sees a truck load of rabid road workers arrive at the hospital and start attacking everyone in sight. He runs back inside the hospital and seeks refuge with his newborn daughter in a supply closet, but not before he becomes infected with the Darkness.


11.01 Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire

As Sam goes searching the abandoned hospital, he comes across a rabid road worker furiously banging a cart against a supply closet door. As the rabid begins approaching where Sam is taking cover, a cry comes from the supply closet, and the rabid continues trying to break through the door, until it drops dead. Sam tells Mike the rabid is dead and shows him his FBI badge to show him it is safe. Mike relates what happened to the Winchesters and Deputy Jenna Nickerson, revealing that he was attacked and can feel himself changing. Sam and Dean argue whether to kill Mike or just let whatever is affecting him run its course and kill him, or try and find a cure. Mike tells them he's not looking for a cure, he knows what is going to happen to him and just wants to save his daughter. He hands his daughter to Jenna and goes off on his own to wait out the sickness.

When another truckload of rabids arrive at the hospital, Sam offers to act as a distraction while Dean and Jenna make their escape from the hospital. As they reach the exit Mike confronts them having fully succumbed to the Darkness, and begins asking for the baby. With his last ounce of energy, he names his daughter Amara before he begins choking and eventually dies.
