History

Pastor David Gideon and his daughter, Leah, live in Blue Earth, Minnesota. Leah claims she is a prophet and that she is communicating with angels to help the townspeople in Blue Earth fight demons, and the pastor takes up arms in the fight. He organizes the citizens as they combat the demon attacks on their town, but he begins to question Leah's visions when she advocates extreme measures. Castiel reveals that Leah is being impersonated by the Whore of Babylon. He says that only a true servant of Heaven can kill the Whore using a stake of cypress from Babylon. It is decided the only worthy person is Pastor Gideon. Castiel transports him to Sam and Dean, who explain the situation. Pastor Gideon is reluctant, but agrees to kill the Whore. He is unsuccessful in his attempt, so Dean completes the act.
