==TEASER==

[Late at night a young girl is seen leaving the Casey's Great Plains Diner carrying a to-go box. She locks the door behind her.

She walks around the corner and sets the to-go box next to a homeless man who is asleep leaning against the wall.]

GIRL
Nighty night, Slim.

[She walks down the sidewalk and then pauses as she hears a low breathing behind her. She walks quicker and then looks behind her again.

She rushes to her car and in her nervousness drops her keys. She crawls under her car to reach them. As she does she hears footsteps and decides to crawl all the way under. She pulls out her taser and turns it on. The electric light illuminates her frightened face. Suddenly the car is lifted up above her and a shadow of a person lights up in a hot blue fire.]

[The unconscious girl is seen being dragged across a dirty floor. A trap door is open and she is dropped in as the hatch is slammed behind her.]


==ACT ONE==

MEN OF LETTERS BUNKER -- KITCHEN

[SAM is fast asleep lying over the table. He is snoring. DEAN enters and pours himself coffee. He grabs a bowl and slams it on the table, waking SAM up.]


DEAN
Hey.

SAM
Hey.

DEAN
You okay?

SAM
Yeah...uh...yeah.
Just, uh...resting my head for a second.
Um, how's Kevin?
He, uh -- he find anything?

DEAN
Uh, Jack.
On about four days no sleep.
He looks worse than you.

SAM
Huh.
What about Crowley?
Um, do you think he might be lying about the whole, uh, "Metatron's spell being irreversible" thing?

DEAN
Oh, Crowley lie?
I do know one thing. Next time that junkie's jonesing for a hit of blood, we got leverage.

[SAM still looks half asleep and yawns loudly]

DEAN
Seriously, you want a pillow?

SAM
No, I'm fine.

DEAN
You're sick.

SAM
No, I'm not sick. I'm just, um -- I feel like my battery can't recharge.

[DEAN'S cell phone rings. He pulls it out of his pocket and answers.]

DEAN
Hello?

[Flashes to JODY MILLS in her sheriff's uniform]

JODY
Hey, Dean. Jody Mills.

[Back in the BUNKER]

DEAN
Sheriff Mills.

[puts the phone on speaker]

Hang on.
Sam's here, too.

SAM
Hey, Jody.

JODY
Hey, Sam.

JODY
Uh...I got a bit of an oddball to pitch your direction.

DEAN
Shoot.

JODY
A small town I cover outside of Sioux Falls -- only crime to speak of being the occasional cow tipping.
Then last week...four people go missing.

DEAN
All right, so, what makes you think this is our kind of weird?

JODY
I've got a witness who says he saw someone lift an S.U.V. to nab a girl last night.

[Wide shot of the IMPALA driving down a country road. The IMPALA pulls up to Casey's Great Plains Diner and parks next to Sheriff Mills truck. The boys get out and both hug the sheriff.]

DEAN
Sheriff.
Laying off the blind dates, I hope.

JODY
Yeah.
You bite your tongue, boy.

SAM
Hey.
So?

JODY
So.
Car was right over there, ass over teakettle. Now, normally, if somebody would tell me that one guy lifted an S.U.V., I'd tell him to take a flying leap, but after what I've seen...

SAM
Nothing's impossible.

JODY
Uh-huh.

DEAN
And this matches up with the other missing how?

JODY
Well, four abductions, strong evidence left at every scene -- literally.

SAM
So, first vic was a pastor?

JODY
Yeah.
Door of his study was punched in. And then, the next two -- an engaged couple.

DEAN
Locked bedroom window was ripped open.

JODY
Mm-hmm.
And then we have our waitress here with the topsy-turvy ride.

SAM
Any other connection among them?

JODY
Yeah.
They were all members of Good Faith church here.
My, uh, my church group back in Sioux Falls was in a tizzy over it.

DEAN
Hmm.

JODY
What?

DEAN
I didn't peg you for churchy.

JODY
Yeah.
You know...
Choking on the ladies' room floor 'cause of witchcraft kind of makes a higher power seem relevant.

DEAN
Jody, are you sure you're, uh, to jump back in the fray?

JODY
This wackadoo stuff keeps coming. More I know, better armed I'll be.

SAM
Okay, so, we have, uh, missing church folk and super strength. Maybe angels harvesting vessels?
Could be a Buddy Boyle type thing.

JODY
Wh-- angels?
You're joking.

DEAN
Don't get your pants on fire.
They suck.

SAM
You said there was a witness.

JODY
Yeah, well...more or less.

[SAM, DEAN are sitting at a restaurant booth and JODY and the homeless man SLIM join them.]

JODY
Okay, Slim.
My friends here want to talk to you about the missing girl.

SLIM
Honor.
Her name was Honor.
Nice girl.
Always left me meatloafs.

DEAN
Mm.

SAM
Slim, why don't you tell us what you saw that night?

SLIM
I heard a big noise, got woke, and there's somebody over there lifting a car up -- like this.

[SLIM lifts his hands above his head]

DEAN
And did you happen to see who it was?

SLIM
I was too far. But I saw a light go off.

SAM
A white light?

SLIM
Blue. Blue like fire.
But not.
Then she was -- she wasn't there.

DEAN
Could you think of anything else?

SLIM
No.

DEAN
Okay.
Well...Slim, thank you for your time.

[DEAN takes out his wallet and hands SLIM a $20 bill. SLIM takes the money and leaves.]

SAM
Okay. So, no white light.

DEAN
No angel.
Has anybody talked to the victims' families?

JODY
It's next on my list.

DEAN
Okay, and you said that they were all part of the same church?

JODY
Mm-hmm.

DEAN [to SAM]
Ready to get your worship on?

[Scene switches to a wide shot of a very tall and imposing white church with GOOD FAITH CHURCH in large letters on the front.]

[Camera switches to a lady, BONNIE FUTCHKO, sitting down at a large desk with DEAN and SAM on the other side.

BONNIE
We hope you enjoyed the tour.
Any questions before we get you boys registered?

SAM
Uh, yeah, uh, look, um, Ms. Futchko --

BONNIE
oh, please... Bonnie will do just fine.

SAM
Bonnie.
Okay, um, we...love the church. We do. But...Well, we've heard that a few
members have gone missing, and, to be honest...that kind of scares us.

BONNIE
Let me assure you, with our increased security, Good Faith has never been safer.
And those people who have gone missing, well, they are front and center in our prayers.

DEAN
What a relief.
Now, you must have been, uh, close to them.

BONNIE
Well, we do share the A.P.U. bond.

DEAN
"The A.P.U."?

BONNIE
Our chastity group... "Abstinence Purifies Us."

SAM
Oh.
W-wow.
You mind if we sit in on that, maybe see if it's for us?

BONNIE
I'm afraid it's members only.
I'm sorry, but it can get pretty personal.

SAM
Then count us in.

BONNIE
Well.
I'll be a squirrel in a skirt.
I'll be back in a jiff with the papers.

[BONNIE leaves and we see her outside the office pulling papers from a large filing cabinet. Camera pulls back to DEAN as he leans over to SAM.]

DEAN
A chastity group?

SAM
Dean, listen, if all the members were in A.P.U., then maybe whatever took them is stalking virgins.

DEAN
And that Slim guy said he thought he saw fire.
So, what are you thinking, dragons?

SAM
Mm. [SAM looks up to see BONNIE returning.] Shh.

BONNIE
All righty. [She hands both of the boys clipboards.]
You can just sign there, and your purification can begin.

SAM [reading]
"Purity pledge"?

BONNIE
It's a commitment to your virginity.

DEAN
I don't think we can really un-ring that bell.
You know what I mean?

BONNIE
[A little taken aback]
Oh.
I see.
Well...
If you just ask for God's forgiveness for your sins and make a new vow of chastity, well, then, you'll be born again as a virgin in his eyes.

DEAN
So, you just hit the "virginity do-over" button, and all is good with the man
upstairs?

BONNIE
[Looking shocked]
It's not a button.
And...this isn't just a piece of paper. I mean, this is your clean slate, your chance to be a virgin until marriage.

DEAN
Well, you had me at "clean slate""
Let's do this.

[DEAN and then SAM both sign their real names to the bottom of their purity pledges. They then hand them back to BONNIE.]

BONNIE
Congratulations, Sam and Dean Winchester.
You are both virgins.

SAM and DEAN
Ah.

[DEAN smiles sheepishly at SAM]

[Scene switches to a dark underground room with a few tiny candles burning high on ledges in the wall. Sounds of a girl crying. We hear the sound of a taser and HONOR's face lights up with the blue electric light.]

[HONOR walks around, limping, exploring her prison with the light of the taser. She sees a ledge with some Talcom Power and soap. She is then startled by movement behind her. She gasps in fright.]

HONOR
Please.
Stay away from me!

==ACT TWO==

GOOD FAITH CHURCH -- SUNDAY SCHOOL ROOM

[The A.P.U. group sitting in a room. It is a circle of six women and DEAN and SAM. The group leader, SUZY, welcomes everyone.]

SUZY
Good afternoon, everyone.
I'm Suzy.
I thought we'd begin with a silent prayer for our missing friends.

[Everyone closes their eyes in a silent prayer except for DEAN who is still watching everyone. SAM notices and clears his throat. DEAN quickly ducks his head.]

SUZY
Amen.
Now, does anyone have anything that they would like to share?

TAMMY
I wrote a new piece of verse.
It's called "Sex is a racket, and God's ball is in your court."

SUZY
And we would love to hear that, Tammy -- later.
Why don't we hear from our new friends?
Sam, what brought you here to reclaim your virginity?

SAM
Well, I guess because every woman I've...ever... had relations with, uh...it...hasn't ended well.

DEAN [chuckling]
He ain't lying.

SUZY
Thank you for being here, Sam.
Stay strong.
Stay pure.

ALL THE WOMEN
Stay strong.
Stay pure.

SUZY
And you, Dean?
What set you on the path away from sin?

DEAN
Uh, hard to say, exactly.
Yeah.
Sex has always felt -- I don't know -- good, you know? I mean, really, really good.

[DEAN realizes who he is talking to]

Uh...But, uh... Sometimes, it just makes you feel bad, you know?
You're drunk.
You shack up.

[DEAN smiles]

Then, it's the whole morning thing.
You know, "Hey, that was fun."
And then, "adios," you know?
Always the "adios."

[DEAN looks wistful.]

But, you know, when you get down to it, what's the big deal, right?
I mean, sure, there's the touching and the feeling all of each other,
my hands everywhere, tracing every inch of her body, the two of us moving together, pressing and pulling...
Grinding.

[All the women start shift uncomfortably.]

Then you hit that sweet spot, and everything just builds and builds and builds until it all just...

[DEAN makes a exploding noise. TAMMY crushes her paper with the written verse in her lap.]

[SAM gives DEAN the bitchface and clears his throat again.]

DEAN
Yeah.
Uh...But the whole thing was just a little too, uh...sticky.
So, uh, I got my "V" card back. [slaps his leg]
The end.

[Scene switches to the end of the meeting and all the women are putting up the chairs.]

SAM
Hm.
So, um... Wee bit of an over-share, Dean?

DEAN
I was purifying.
Hey, she look familiar to you?

[SAM turns around and see that DEAN is looking at SUZY.]

SAM
Suzy?

DEAN
Yeah.
Swear I know her from somewhere.

SAM [exasperated]
Oh, good, Dean. 'Cause that line never fails.

DEAN
Well, let's find out.

[DEAN leaves in pursuit of SUZY. BONNIE rushed up and taps SAM on the shoulder.]

SAM
Hey.

BONNIE
So?

SAM
So?

BONNIE
How did you like the meeting?

SAM
Oh, I-I-I-I loved it.
Yeah.
Um, you know, I-I couldn't help but think of those who weren't here.

BONNIE
Oh.
Honor.
She's my favorite.

[TAMMY overhears and gets angry. BONNIE notices another A.P.U. member stuffing cookies into a napkin for later.]

BONNIE
Would you excuse me?

TAMMY [approaching SAM]
Her favorite?
She has no idea what kind of girl Honor is.

SAM
You don't say.
Uh, Tammy, right? The poet?

TAMMY
Mm-hmm.

SAM
Tammy, why -- why don't, um, why don't you tell me what kind of girl Honor is?

[Camera switches to DEAN talking to SUZY]

DEAN
Are you sure we don't know each other?

SUZY
Yeah, I-I'm pretty sure we've never met, Dean.

DEAN
Hmm.

SUZY
Wait, you're -- you're new in town, right?

DEAN
Uh, yeah.
New to town.
New to this whole chastity thing.

SUZY
Well, I provide individual counseling.
If you ever need to talk --

DEAN
So, everybody in the group, they dish to you?

SUZY
They confide.
Abstinence is -- it's really rough without support and education.
Hey, you know what?
I have some great books on the vow that really helped me.
I-I live close. I'll just go grab them.

DEAN
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
With a, uh, with a kidnapper on the loose?

SUZY
No, I'll be fine.

DEAN
Tell you what -- why don't I walk with you just to be safe, okay?
Just give me one second.

[Camera switches back to SAM listening in exasperated silence to TAMMY rambling about HONOR...]

TAMMY
...And I bake real cookies for the bake sale. Honor just brings Oreos!

SAM
Oh. You know what? Excuse me.

DEAN [walking up *grinning*]
Guess who's taking the teacher home.
[gives a straight face] Research.

SAM
You really think you're gonna hit that?
Dean, she's the chastity counselor.

DEAN
Yeah, I know.
What about you?
Any luck?

SAM
You mean am I actually working?
As a matter of fact, yes, I am.

DEAN
All right, well, good luck with that.

[DEAN walks back to SUZY]

DEAN
Okay. Lead the way.

SUZY
Okay.

[SAM turns back to TAMMY with a resigned look.]

SAM
Hey. Sorry.
So, where were we?

TAMMY
Honor is going to hell.

[Scene switches to JODY in a hotel room typing on a laptop. SAM enters.]

SAM
Hey.

JODY
How was church?

SAM
Well, it turned into confessional. Apparently, two of our vics, Honor and Pastor Fred, did the dirty.

JODY
Oh, well.
They're not the only ones. Barb Blanton, our missing bride to be --

SAM
Yeah?

JODY
Her mom said she heard Barb and her fiancé in Barb's bedroom.

SAM
Going at it?

JODY
Well, she said she heard sex noises, then Barb crying, then Neil telling Barb it didn't count because it was under 30 seconds.

[SAM chuckles]

JODY
And then, two hours later, she heard a smash and saw a flash of light under the door.

SAM
Blue light?

JODY [nods]
You know, I'm thinking whatever this thing is, it's not going after virgins,
even born-again virgins.

SAM
It's taking virgins who break their chastity vow.
So dragons are off the list.

JODY
I'm sor-- dragons?
Those are a thing?

SAM
Yeah.
Too many things are things.

[Scene switches to SUZY and DEAN entering her apartment.]

SUZY
Make yourself comfortable.

[DEAN watches SUZY take off her hoodie leaving her just wearing a camisole. She sits down on her couch with her back to DEAN. His cell phone rings and we see it is SAM. DEAN silences the call.]

DEAN
Not now, Kato.

[DEAN approaches SUZY on the couch and notices that she is crying.]

SUZY
I can't stop thinking about my friends.
I'm so scared for them.
Will you pray with me, Dean?

DEAN [looking uncomfortable]
Sure.

[DEAN sits down next to SUZY]

[Scene switches to SAM in the hotel trying DEAN's other cell phone. He gets his voicemail.]

"This is Dean's other, other cell so you must know what to do."

[SAM leaves a message.]
Dean.
Come on, call me.

[JODY looks at SAM with a motherly face.]

JODY
You know, for being born again today, you sure look like crap.

SAM
Wait a second.
Did you...get --

JODY
Born again?

SAM
Yeah.

JODY
Oh, Sam.
I don't make promises I can't keep.
It's just...I enjoy church.
I mean, after...after Bobby, Crowley...I needed something that made sense to me -- you know, comfort, I guess.

SAM
Yeah, I guess we're all looking for that.

JODY
Except those that got it.

[SAM looks puzzled.]

JODY
Come on.
You and Dean?
That's something special, don't you think?

[SAM looks out the window and shrugs.]

[Scene switches back to DEAN and SUZY. SUZY is bending down to grab books off a shelf. Her shirt rids up baring her lower back. DEAN rolls his eyes and tries to look away. SUZY stands up and hands eight books to DEAN.]

SUZY
Okay.
So, why don't you breeze through these, and I'm gonna head to the little girls' room.

DEAN
Mm, yeah.

[SUZY leaves and DEAN walks over to the entertainment center and sets the books down as his cell phone rings. He hits the answer button but before he can lift the phone to his ear he notices a cracked drawer with some DVDs in it. He opens the drawer wider and in shock pulls out two CASA EROTICA DVDs. He stares at them as Sam tries to get his attention from the phone.]

SAM
Hey.
Dean?
Hey, Dean. Are you there?

[DEAN makes the connection that the naked girl on the front of the DVDs is SUZY.]

Hello?
Dean?
Dean?

[DEAN finally snaps out of his shock and raises his phone to his ear.]

DEAN
Sammy! Hey.

SAM
What's going on?

DEAN
I found something big.

SAM
Yeah. So did we.
So, get this -- it's not a dragon.

DEAN [still reading the CASA EROTICA DVDs]
Uh-huh. Uh-- ooh.

SAM
Dean?

DEAN
Copy that.

[DEAN quickly hangs up as he hears SUZY coming back. He tries to hide the DVDs behind his back as he swings around to face her.]

DEAN
Hey.
Or should I say... "Hola"?

SUZY [looking confused]
Uh, why?

DEAN
No reason.
No reason.

SUZY
A-are you okay?

DEAN
Me? Ah -- I'm great. Why?

SUZY
Uh, you seem... I-I don't know, nervous.

DEAN [Laughing nervously]
Nervous? No.
I'm not nervous... Carmelita.

SUZY [face falls in resignation]
So, you've seen my...work.
Listen, I don't blame you if you want to be assigned a new counselor.
I-I get it.

DEAN
No. No, no.
Are you -- are you kidding me?
I mean, you're -- you're a freaking legend.

SUZY [in a panic]
No! I-I am -- I'm not that girl anymore.
I moved here.
I changed my name. That girl was -- was horrible.
DEAN [interrupting her]
Listen, uh, Suzy,
I've seen a lot of awful things, stuff of nightmares, okay?
But you -- you're the good dreams.

[SUZY smiles slightly]

DEAN
And nobody in Hartford knows?

SUZY
Yeah, what am I supposed to say?
"Oh, yeah, hey, I used to be a porn star. Let's pray"?

DEAN
Well... They do not appreciate you.
I mean... the things you can do -- the scene with the tacos.

SUZY [smile getting wider]
Yeah.

DEAN
Made me want to join a mariachi band just to be near you.

SUZY [looking at DEAN enticingly]
Well, you are now.

DEAN [suddenly comprehending what she is saying]
I am, aren't I?

[SUZY moves in on DEAN]

SUZY
You're not like... the other guys in town, are you?
You're kind of a... a bad boy.

DEAN
I don't know.
Why don't you ask me that in Spanish?

SUZY
¿Eres un Chico malo?

DEAN


[SUZY quickly closes the gap between them and kisses DEAN passionately. He pulls her head in and hungrily kisses her back. He lift her up on to his hips while they are still kissing and together they slowly fall out of the camera view.]

[Scene switches to HONOR in the dark underground room. HONOR hears strange noises and is petrified. She finds a cupboard with matches and a lamp. She lights the lamp.]

HONOR
Aah! Oh.
[HONOR sees a body on the floor. She bends over it.]

HONOR
Pastor Fred.

[Pastor Fred's eyes fly open and it scares HONOR who jumps away right into the faces of two other people.]

HONOR
Aah!
Neil? Barb?
What happened to him?

NEIL
What do you think?
He's starving to death.
Just like we will if we don't get out of here.

HONOR
Why didn't you tell me who you were?
I was so scared.

BARB
We were scared!

[A loud creaking sound is heard above them. NEIL, BARB and HONOR hide as there is a bright flash of blue fire. When it ends, they crawl out to see that PASTER FRED is nowhere to be seen.]

HONOR [in a panic]
Where'd he go?

[Off in the distance above their heads they hear PASTOR FRED's bloodcurdling scream.]

[Scene switches to JODY typing on her laptop and she looks up to see SAM putting on his jacket.]

JODY
What's up?

SAM
This thing is taking people that break their vows, right?

JODY
Yeah.

SAM
Dean and Suzy -- been over an hour.

JODY [leaping up for her jacket]
Right.

[Camera switches to SUZY and DEAN walking to her door putting their clothes back on.]

SUZY
I got to say...
I really missed that.

DEAN
I miss it already.

[DEAN gently pulls her head toward him and kisses her again. SUZY wraps both arms around DEAN's neck and kisses him back. They pull away.]

DEAN
Okaaaay.

[DEAN turns to open the door and when he does both him and SUZY are thrown back in the apartment in a blinding flash of blue light. The camera fades to black from a shot of their unconscious bodies.]

==ACT THREE==

DARK UNDERGROUND ROOM

[BARB is dragging her broken and bleeding fingernails down the stone walls.]

HONOR
What are you doing?

BARB [crying]
I'm so thirsty.
So thirsty!
There has to be a way out!

[NEIL turns away and HONOR watches as BARB puts her bleeding fingers in her mouth to drink her own blood. They suddenly all hear the trap door being opened above them. They go to investigate. They see SUZY regaining consciousness next to a still unconscious DEAN.]

SUZY
Hey. Dean.
[she shakes him] Dean. Hey, come on.
Dean. Dean.

[DEAN jerks awake.]
DEAN
Where are we?

NEIL
Hell.

[Scene switches SAM in SUSY's apartment. He has found the CASA EROTICA DVD's and is starting to put things together. JODY walks into the apartment.]

SAM
Hey.

JODY
Hey.

SAM
Neighbors see anything?

JODY
Flash of blue.

SAM
Huh.

JODY
You sure Dean was here?

[SAM holds up the DVD's]

SAM
Oh, yeah.
And I think he crossed someone off his bucket list.

[Back in the dark underground room. DEAN is on the ladder trying to push open the tightly shut trap door.]

NEIL
We tried. There's no escape.

SUZY
Are we gonna run out of air?

NEIL
I don't think so.
Somebody wants us to die nice and slow.

HONOR
And then it's gonna take us, just like it took Pastor Fred.

DEAN
What took him?

HONOR
We couldn't see, exactly.
It -- it was so bright. I-it was like it was on fire.

[SAM and JODY back in the hotel room. JODY is back searching on the laptop.]

JODY
Hey.
Virgins, fire -- sound familiar?

SAM [reading over her shoulder]
"Vesta, Roman Goddess of the Hearth"

JODY
in ancient Rome, six virgins were dedicated to this chick every year.
Their main duty was to tend Vesta's hearth.

SAM
Wait, so, fire is connected to virginity?

JODY
Yeah, the girls had to be pure because fire is the symbol of purity.

SAM
Huh.
Okay, as long as Vesta's fire was kept lit, Rome received a good harvest.

JODY
The virgins had to stay celibate for 30 years. If they broke their vows,
they were buried alive.

[Back in the dark underground room. DEAN tries once more to heave the trap door open but to no avail.]

DEAN
Son of a bitch.

[DEAN climbs down the ladder.]

SUZY
Dean.
Maybe God wants us down here -- because of what we did.

DEAN
Trust me -- this is not God's work.

DEAN
Son of a --

[DEAN is franticly checking his pockets.]

SUZY
What's wrong?

DEAN
They took my phone.
Luckily...

[DEAN pulls out a second phone.]

I keep a spare.

[DEAN holds the phone over his head.]

Come on, bars.

[HONOR watches DEAN attempt to use his phone and then catches NEIL staring at her suspiciously.]

[Camera switches to JODY and SAM in the hotel room.]

JODY [still reading from the laptop]
Vesta was often enveloped in a blue halo of light, which she could control at will to disorient, to maim --
ohh -- or to kill.

SAM
Okay, what about some way to kill her? A-a weapon or -- or something.

[JODY goes back to typing but is interrupted as SAM's phone rings loudly. SAM answers.]

SAM
Dean?

DEAN
Sam! Sammy!

SAM
Dean.
Hey.

DEAN [his voice full of static]
Hey, listen to me. I'm --

SAM
Dean, wh--

DEAN
underground.

SAM
Say it again. I can't hear you.

DEAN
We're --
Some kind of --

SAM
Dean!
I lost him.

JODY
What?

SAM
Listen, is there some kind of train station around here or something?
I-I could have sworn I heard a whistle.

[Back in the dark underground room. BARB and NEIL are whispering in the corner.]

BARB
Don't, Neil. Please, don't.

NEIL
Shh. Shh.

DEAN [overhearing them]
Don't what, Neil?

NEIL
Just mind your beeswax, pal.

DEAN [marching over to NEIL]
Hey. Hey!
Listen, we're all stuck down here together. So, you got something to say, you say it.

NEIL
Okay, look, whatever that fireball thing was, it's taking the weakest, and I am not gonna be next.
So, the way I see it, her leg's busted anyway. [NEIL motions to HONOR.]
We serve her up. It could buy us some time.

HONOR
Screw you, Neil.

[DEAN shoves NEIL to the wall.]

DEAN
Busted leg?
Try a sprained ankle, okay?
Nobody's serving anybody up!

NEIL
We are under the gallows, all of us.
Give it Honor. It might save the rest of our necks, unless you have a better plan.

DEAN
Maybe I do.
Maybe we'll give him you.
Oh, what, you don't like that idea?
Then shut up!

[Back in the hotel room. SAM finds the train information on his laptop.]

SAM
Here we go. 8:00 p.m. train out of Sioux Falls. 79 miles an hour.
What's five miles east of Hartford -- anything?

JODY
Uh...
Pasture mostly.
No -- the old Wimmer farm.

[They both jump up to leave.]

SAM
Wait, anything on a weapon?

JODY [checking her laptop]
Oak stained in virgin blood.
Where are we gonna get a virgin?

SAM [suddenly realizing something]
I'm a virgin!

JODY [smiling]
I think we need the real McCoy here, Sam.

[Scene changes to TAMMY at a food bank looking at SAM and JODY in horror.]

TAMMY
You need what?

SAM
Your blood.

JODY
Just a dab.

TAMMY
But... Pagans use blood.
Are you pagans?

SAM
What? Pagan?
No, look, it's for a weapon that --

TAMMY
You are in a House of God.
Your psycho rituals aren't gonna fly here.

SAM
Okay, we don't have time for this.

TAMMY
I don't have time for devil worshippers!
I'm calling the cops.

[JODY punches TAMMY]

JODY
I am the cops.

TAMMY [tries to stop her bleeding nose.]
What the fudge, lady?!

[JODY wipes some blood off Tammy's face]

JODY
Wipe your nose, dear.

[The IMPALA drives toward a country farm. Nighttime.]

[SAM and JODY walk into an abandoned barn with flashlights. They glance around.]

SAM [whispers]
Jody.

[He motions her to go one way while he goes the other.]

[Camera switches to the underground room. HONOR and SUZY are sitting together. SUZY is spinning her purity ring on the table.]

HONOR
You broke, too, huh?

SUZY
Guess I'm not as strong as I thought I was.

[SAM is still looking in the barn. He sees the trap door and starts to clear the dirt and hay off of it.]

HONOR [laying her hand on SUZY's]
God forgives.
You told me that yourself.

[There is banging above DEAN's head]

NEIL [freaking out]
Told you. It's back for one of us.
What are you gonna do now?
Right, you should have listened to me --

DEAN
Shh! Shut up.

SAM
Jody!

JODY
Sam?

SAM
Dean! We're here!
We're gonna get you out!

Jody, I found it!

DEAN [hears SAM's voice and climbs the ladder to the trap door. He bangs in the door.]
Sammy? Sammy! Sammy!

SAM
Hey, Dean, we're here.
We're gonna get you out.

[SAM tries to pry open the door but is suddenly flung away by an invisible force.

DEAN
Sammy, are you still there?!

JODY [rushes in to see SAM unconscious on the floor of a stall.]
Sam!

[JODY is grabbed by a shadow and it turns out to be BONNIE. BONNIE shoves JODY up against a post and yanks her left glove off her hand with her teeth.]

BONNIE
Now, now.
Shh.

[BONNIE's left pointer finger lights up a brilliant blue.]

==ACT FOUR==

THE OLD WIMMER FARM

JODY
Really? This is how a goddess acts?

BONNIE(VESTA)
What?

JODY
I'm sort of new to this, but, you know, a Roman deity burying people alive in a barn?
Sort of pathetic, don't you think?

VESTA [punches JODY]
It only got pathetic when I started having to do it myself. Because of that hippie from Bethlehem -- before him, they practically threw virgins at me.
And now --

JODY
they let your fire go out. They forgot about you.
Yeah, I know. Sucks to be Lindsay Lohan, doesn't it?

[VESTA punches JODY again]

VESTA
Actually, I figured if you can't beat them, join them.
That's right. [VESTA throws a tarp off a slaughter table covered in blood.]
I adapted!
Now I chew on the cud of prayer.
Heck... I even got a sweater set.

[Underground. DEAN is running his fingers over the trap door. He finds a rusty screw.]

DEAN
Screwdriver, anybody?

HONOR [finds scissors in the first-aid kit]
Hey.
From the first-aid kit.

[VESTA throws JODY onto the slaughter table and harshly starts tying her down.]

JODY
Aah!

VESTA
They used to beg to stay pure for me.
And now I have to drag them kicking and screaming.
And they're not even real virgins. They're born-again.
You want to talk about pathetic?

JODY
Yeah. You're a real charity case.

VESTA
Oh, no, sweetheart. This isn't charity. I take what I deserve.

[DEAN works on screwing out the rusty screws in the trapdoor.]

When those trollops are about to die soaked in their juicy fear, I...eat...their...livers! Because that's the only part of them still working to purify the body that they've trashed. Now, normally, I like them weaker,
but let's just call this a hunter's exception, shall we?

JODY
Sure.

[JODY pulls out the oak stake dipped in virgin's blood. She tries to stab VESTA but VESTA pulls in out of her hands and holds it over JODY.

VESTA
This is how a goddess acts!

[SAM attacks VESTA from behind and VESTA falls forward stabbing JODY in the chest. VESTA flings SAM back into the stall.]

DEAN [still working on the trap door's screws.]
Come on, come on,
come on, come on.

[VESTA powers up her blue finger and presses it to SAM's stomach. In the background, JODY painfully pulls the stake out of her chest/shoulder.]

SAM
Aah!

VESTA
What's wrong with you?

SAM [worried and surprised]
What?

VESTA
Your liver.
It's -- it's no good.
Dear boy, you're all duct tape and safety pins inside.
How are you alive?

[JODY stabs VESTA with the virgin blooded oak stake from behind. VESTA evaporates in a brilliant blue light. SAM gets to his feet as DEAN finally pops the trap door open.]

DEAN [looking around]
What did I miss?

==ACT FIVE==

HOTEL

[JODY's arm is in a sling as she packs up her things.]

JODY
Aah.

SAM
Heading out?

JODY
Yeah.
I'd tell you boys to stay out of trouble, but what's the point?

[SAM hugs JODY and squeezes her bad shoulder.]

JODY
Ow.

DEAN [hugging JODY]
Thanks for bailing me out.

JODY
Oh, what can I say? I'm getting the hang of this.

SAM
Drive safe.

JODY
Thanks.
[Headed out the door]
Don't get the door for me or anything.

[SAM sighs heavily and sits on the bed.]

DEAN
What's up?

SAM
What if there is something wrong with me -- something...really wrong?

DEAN
You're just crapped out, man.
You need some rest.

SAM
Oh, it's more than that. I mean, Vesta said I was practically dead inside.

DEAN
Oh, and she's in the circle of trust now?

SAM
Why would she lie?

DEAN
It's probably the trials, okay? Probably some sort of a, you know, aftereffect.
It's not like you're bouncing back from the flu here.
I mean, you were glowing with freaking trial juice.

SAM
I don't know.

DEAN
Well, what else would it be?

SAM
Why does it have to be something else?
It's always something else. We're always scraping to find some other explanation when maybe it is... just me.

DEAN
Oh, come on, Sam.

SAM
I'm a mess, Dean. You know it. And sometimes, I feel like maybe I'm never gonna actually be all right.

DEAN
You will.
All right, 'cause whatever it is, we'll figure it out.

SAM
Or this is... just the way I am.

[DEAN closes his eyes in resignation. He shakes his head and goes to sit next to his brother.]

DEAN
I can't. I can't let you put this on yourself.
Listen to me.
It's not you, Sam.

[SAM's eyes glow bright blue and EZEKIEL starts to speak.]

EZEKIEL
I wouldn't do that, Dean.

DEAN
He deserves to know.

EZEKIEL
Your brother is not ready. If he ejects me, he will not make it.

DEAN
Damn it, Zeke! How much longer we got to keep playing this?

EZEKIEL
Not much longer.
I promise you that.

[EZEKIEL's eyes glow blue again and he is gone.]

SAM
What?

DEAN [looking guilty and exhausted]
What?

SAM
What?
What -- what's not me?

DEAN
Nothing. I just -- I-I meant that...if there is something wrong...it's not your fault. We'll deal with it.
But you got to have a little faith, Sammy.

[DEAN stands up and starts packing. SAM wearily picks up his bags and slowly walks out the door. DEAN's sad and guilty eyes watch him go.]
