Back in the hotel, Sam manages to throw attack dog girl in the closet where she dies from the spell. He then arrives in the alley and comes up behind Cole, who is pointing a gun at Dean. Dean asks Sam to put down his weapon. Sam trusts Dean so lowers his gun. Dean empathizes with Cole's situation, and he understands how circumstances can blind someone and make them do things they normally wouldn't. The people that love Dean pulled him back from that dark edge. Dean thinks that he is past saving and that he will die by a gun or blade. Will Cole be the one to end it? Sam then reminds Cole about his family, and Cole hands the gun back to Dean.
