Sam is beyond excited to talk to God, who prefers to go by Chuck, but Dean is much more withdrawn, not understanding how Chuck could just have left humanity to deal with everything by itself when he was really needed. Chuck says that he needed to let people find their own way. Being over involved was not helping anyone. Later that night, in the bunker, Dean is on the computer looking for any leads on Amara, when he has a vision of her inside the bunker, telling him that she misses him and that she knows her brother has resurfaced and that he should tell him that Lucifer (and his vessel) aren’t doing so well. The next morning, Sam finds out about another town that experienced the mysterious fog, where thousands of people died, everyone except for one person. They go to the town, where they talk to the survivor, [[Donatello Redfield]], and figure out that he is a prophet. Dean sees another vision of Amara, telling him that she needs to see him. They bring Donatello back to the bunker to see Chuck, then go off to meet Metatron at a bar, who tells them that Chuck has no intention of taking Amara down - he will sacrifice himself. Dean meets Chuck in a park and asks him why he’s giving up. Chuck plans to make a deal with Amara to have himself put in a cage as long as the world is unhurt. He tells Dean that if that doesn’t work, he and Sam will step up - it’s why he saved Dean - Dean is the firewall between the light and the darkness. Dean argues that it’s Chuck who must do it. Back in the Bunker, they agree to let Metatron in on their plan, as his knowledge may be useful. Dean meets up with Amara in a forest, and once again she asks him to join her. However, she quickly realizes that he has betrayed her - this meeting is a diversion to distract her while the others rescue Lucifer. She goes to try and stop them, leaving Dean unharmed.
