|prevep= 1.10 Asylum
|nextep= 1.12 Faith
The morning after the events at the [[1.10 Asylum|Roosevelt Asylum]], [[Dean]]'s cell rings, and [[Sam]] answers to hear his father’s voice. [[John]] expresses sympathy at the murder of [[Jess]], and for the first time reveals that he knows that what killed [[Mary]] and Jess was a [[demon]]. John tells Sam that he must stop looking for him and he starts to give Sam details of a new hunt, but Sam argues that he wants to help John hunt the demon. Dean grabs the phone and takes the details from John. Each year in the second week of April, a couple on a cross-country trip has gone missing near Burkittsville, Indiana.
As they head towards Burkittsville, Sam argues with Dean, and declares that he wants to go after John, who he knows from the phone call is in Sacramento. Sam stops the car, and gets out of the driver's seat. He argues with Dean that he's going to Sacramento. Dean threatens to leave and go on without him, but Sam is set on finding his father instead of following orders from him. Dean shuts the Impala's trunk, gets in the car, and drives away, as Sam walks off down the road. Whilst trying to hitch a ride, Sam comes across another hitchhiker -- [[Meg]]. They chat briefly before she manages to get a lift with an unsavory looking guy driving a van.
