''EXT. RAILWAY – NIGHT''
''INT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
A DOCTOR is working at his desk. DEAN opens the door and enters, followed by a nurseNURSE.
DR KADINSKY<br />
[to the NURSE] I-It – it's fine. Thank you. Really.
DR KADINSKY<br />
And... he's on our locked psychiatric floor.
 
 
DEAN looks surprised.
CUT TO: DR KADINSKY pushing a button to enter Ward D2. A sign on the wall and the door read “High Security Area”. He and DEAN walk down the hallwayin the ward.
SAM<br />
When you put my soul back...
SAM<br />
...Cas warned you about all the crap it would –

MACKEY<br />
Look, what you called about – I might have something for you. There's this guy. He goes by "EmanuelEmmanuel." He kind of roams. First started hearing about him a couple of months back. How he was healing the sick, curing the crazy.
MACKEY<br />
Emanuel Emmanuel shows. He passes every one. There ain't nothing weird about this guy. Except... he's the real deal.
''INT. HOSPITAL – NIGHT''
''EXT. HOUSE – DAY''
DEAN<br />
Hi. Uh, is this, uh, Daphne Allen's house? I'm looking for EmanuelEmmanuel.
EMANUEL EMMANUEL steps outside and closes the door.
Through the window, DEAN sees a WOMAN who is bound to a chair and gagged. He looks back at EMANUELEMMANUEL, whose eyes turn black: he is a DEMON. The DEMON grabs DEAN and throws him against the door.
DEMON<br />
[laughs] Please. What have you done for him lately? Roman's head on a plate? No? Whatever Emanuel Emmanuel is, Crowley's gonna want him – a lot more than he wants you these days. So...
EMANUELEMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
What was that?
== ACT TWO ==
 
 
''INT. DAPHNE ALLEN’S HOUSE – DAY''
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL is removing the gag and ropes binding DAPHNE.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
That creature hurt you.
 
 
DAPHNE<br />
I'm okay. But, Emmanuel... They were looking for you.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
It's okay.
 
[to DEAN] I'm Emmanuel.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL holds out his hand and DEAN shakes it.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Dean. I'm...Dean.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Thank you for protecting my wife.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Your wife. Right.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
I saw his face. His <i>real</i> face.
 
 
DEAN<br />
He was a demon.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
A demon walked the Earth.
 
 
DEAN<br />
<i>Demons.</i> Whackloads of them. You don't know about...?
 
 
DAPHNE<br />
[to EMMANUEL/CASTIEL] You saw the demon's true face.
 
[to DEAN] Emmanuel has very special gifts.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Yeah. I-I've heard that about... Emmanuel. That you can heal people up.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
I seem to be able to help to a certain degree. What's your issue?
 
 
DEAN<br />
My brother.
 
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
SAM is lying on the bed with his eyes closed. A firecracker pops and SAM starts. “Wake Up Little Susie” by the Everly Brothers plays.

HALLUCIFER lights a firecracker and tosses it to the floor.

HALLUCIFER<br />
You know, you're actually keeping it together better than I thought. Kind of... the way someone
pinned under a bus keeps it together.
 
 
SAM<br />
None of this is real.
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
And yet... you know what really sucks? [Tosses another firecracker] It doesn't really matter. [Turns off the music] Because I won. Your madness won. I mean, look at you. It's hard to believe you were the guy that saved the world once.
 
 
An ORDERLY, MARCUS brings in a tray of food.
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
Mmm! Sammy. What'll be today? Maggots again... Or, uh, tapeworm?
 
 
SAM<br />
Thanks.
 
 
MARCUS<br />
Yeah, no problem. How you doing?
 
 
SAM<br />
Uh... little better. That girl, uh, Marin...
 
 
MARCUS<br />
Look, I'm not really supposed to talk about it. Let's just say, unlike you, she didn't get here 'cause of no accident.
 
 
SAM lies back down on the bed. HALLUCIFER lights another firecracker and laughs as SAM flinches.
 
 
''CAR – NIGHT''
 
 
DEAN is driving with EMMANUEL/CASTIEL in the passenger seat.
 
 
DEAN<br />
So, Daphne – is that, uh, your wife?
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
She found me and cared for me.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Meaning?
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Oh, it's a...strange story. You may not like it.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Believe me, I will.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
A few months ago, she was hiking by the river, and I wandered into her path, drenched and confused, and... unclothed. I had no memory. She said... God wanted her to find me.
 
 
DEAN<br />
So who named you Emmanuel?
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Bouncybabynames.com.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Well, it's working for you. Must be weird not knowing who you are.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Well, it's my life. And it's a good life.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Yeah, well, what if you were some kind of... I don't know...bad guy?
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Oh, I... don't feel like a bad person.
 
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
SAM gets up from the bed and stands at the window in his room
 
 
MARIN<br />
Man, you must be really determined to wait out nap time.
 
 
MARIN holds up a chocolate bar.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Here.
 
 
She tosses the chocolate bar onto the bed and turns to leave.
 
 
SAM<br />
Wait. Uh... share this with me.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Thanks. I don't know why I'm thanking you for a candy bar I stole.
 
 
SAM tries to tear the wrapper and can’t.
 
 
SAM<br />
So, how long you been here?
 
 
MARIN<br />
Five weeks and counting. Going for the record.
 
 
SAM<br />
How come?
 
 
MARIN<br />
It doesn't matter.
 
 
SAM<br />
That's a lot of bandages for "it doesn't matter".
 
 
MARIN<br />
You want the doctor answer? I'm psychotically depressed to a suicidal ideation.
 
 
SAM<br />
And the not-doctor answer?
 
 
MARIN<br />
I feel like crap. I just... want it to be over.
 
 
SAM<br />
What?
 
 
MARIN<br />
Everything. Come on. Tell me I'm young and have everything to live for.
 
 
SAM<br />
Why would you believe me?
 
 
MARIN<br />
True. I heard you're here because the voices won't let you sleep.
 
 
SAM<br />
Just one, really.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Who is it? Like Charlie Manson or the devil?
 
 
SAM<br />
Kind of. Yeah.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Me too. I...hear a voice.
 
 
SAM<br />
Is that why you set the fire?
 
 
MARIN<br />
Who told you that?
 
 
SAM<br />
No one. The – they're burns, right?
 
 
MARIN<br />
I didn't set the fire, o– <i>he</i> did! You know what? I don't even know why I'm talking.
 
 
SAM<br />
Marin, it's okay.
 
 
MARIN<br />
No, it's not! You are crazier than I am! Charles Manson tells you what to do. At least it's my own brother –
 
 
SAM<br />
It's your brother?
 
 
MARIN<br />
Yes. It sucks... when it's your dead brother saying... kill yourself to be with him... or he'll do it for you.
 
 
MARIN leaves the room.
 
 
 
''CAR – NIGHT''
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
So, your brother...
 
 
DEAN<br />
Sam.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Sam. What's his diagnosis?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Well, it's not exactly medical.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
That should be fine. I can cure illness of a spiritual origin.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Spiritual? Okay. Someone did this to him.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
You're angry.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Well, yeah. Dude broke my brother's head.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
He betrayed you, this dude. He was your friend?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Yeah, well, he's gone.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Did you kill him? I sense that you kill a lot of people.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Honestly, I-I-I don't know if he is dead. I just know that this... whole thing couldn't be messier. You know, I used to be able to just shake this stuff off. You know, whatever it was. It might take me some time, but... I always could. What Cas did... I just can't – I don't know why.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Well, it doesn't matter why.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Of course it matters.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
No. You're not a machine, Dean. You're human. Your friend's name was Cas? That's an odd name.
 
 
 
''EXT. STREET – DAY''
 
 
DEAN parks the car and gets out.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Oh, hey, hey. Just, uh, sit tight. I'll be right out, okay?
 
 
 
''INT. CONVENIENCE STORE – DAY''
 
 
DEAN takes out his phone. He hears the door open, and looks up at a mirror to see a man walking towards him. He takes out his knife. The man shoves DEAN into a wall and DEAN pushes the man into a refrigerator, shattering its glass door. As the man stands up, DEAN stabs him with his knife. Light flashes from the man’s face as he dies. DEAN picks up his phone and sees that the screen is broken.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Oh, come on.
 
 
DEAN walks to the next aisle of the store and finds two more demons waiting for him. He raises the knife and swings at one of them, but the demon blocks his arm and the knife goes flying to the floor. DEAN punches the demon and it throws him into some shelves. While DEAN is still on the floor, someone stabs the demon from behind. Light flashes from its face. Black smoke pours from the mouth of the other demon as it leaves the body it was possessing.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Emmanuel, you son of a bitch.
 
 
The first demon falls to the ground, revealing MEG, who is holding DEAN’s knife.
 
 
MEG<br />
Emmanuel. Yeah, not so much.
 
DEAN<br />
Meg.
 
 
MEG<br />
Dean, Dean, Dean. You got some 'splainin' to do.
 
 
 
== ACT THREE ==
 
 
''INT. CONVENIENCE STORE – DAY''
 
 
DEAN turns the sign on the door around so it reads “Closed” and pulls down the blind.
 
 
MEG<br />
Rumors are really starting to fly about this Emmanuel fellow. My curiosity sure got revved up.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Just tell me what you want, Meg.
 
 
MEG<br />
Imagine my surprise when I track him down, and he's snuggled up with <i>you.</i> And he's the spitting image of poor, dead Castiel. So, Dean, what's poor, dead Castiel doing in that junker out there?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Christmas caroling.
 
 
MEG<br />
Fun. But how's he alive? Last I heard, he played God, went poof.
 
 
DEAN<br />
I don't know. And neither does he, so you got to keep it shut.
 
 
MEG<br />
Oh, I do?
 
 
DEAN<br />
He doesn't know he's Cas.
 
 
MEG<br />
I know. Been watching you for hours. So here's the deal. You might remember Crowley and me were frosty back in the day? Well, times haven't changed.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Good.
 
 
MEG<br />
That hurts my feelings. I've been good to you, Dean.
 
 
DEAN<br />
No, you've been good to <i>you,</i> sweetheart.
 
 
MEG<br />
Look. Right now…
 
 
DEAN takes some items from the shelves and puts them in his jacket.
 
 
MEG<br />
…rumors of this wandering healer are strictly low-level. But body count's getting high enough to change that. Folks start poking, they sniff angel dust.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Yeah, they start falling all over each other trying to tell Crowley.
 
 
MEG<br />
Now picture Crowley with his hands on harmless little amnesia-Cas. Don't get me wrong. I'm gonna burn that smarmy dick. My time's coming. But right about now, my army-of-one situation is not cutting it. It's cold out here, there's a price on my ass, and I need friends.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Yeah. I get that. But I ain't it.
 
 
MEG<br />
That's where you're wrong, Dean. 'Cause I'm here to help you, and that makes us friends.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Help, huh? You mean see if you can't turn harmless little Cas out there into an angel-sized weapon?
 
 
MEG<br />
Like you're taking him caroling. And by the way, you really want to keep going with no backup? Hey, I don't trust you, either. But I could really use Emmanuel. And he trusts you. So for now, it's in everyone's best interests to hold hands and cross the street together, okay?
 
 
DEAN<br />
We go straight to Sam. No detours.
 
 
MEG<br />
I love it.
 
 
DEAN<br />
And one more thing. My knife.
 
 
MEG holds up the bloody knife and DEAN takes it.
 
 
MEG<br />
You sure we wouldn't be safer traveling with a full-throttle angel? I could jog his memory. Kidding! We wouldn't want to upset the poor guy.
 
 
 
''EXT. STREET – DAY''
 
 
DEAN and MEG walk up to EMMANUEL/CASTIEL.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Her face! She's one of –
 
 
MEG<br />
It's okay. We come in different flavors.
 
 
DEAN<br />
She's, uh... a friend.
 
 
MEG<br />
Meg. Just here for moral support. I mean, after all, we go way back. Dean and me. Just met you, of course. But I think we're gonna be good friends, too.
 
 
DEAN<br />
All right. Can we go?
 
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
MARIN walks down the hallway. SAM comes to his doorway.
 
 
SAM<br />
Marin. Marin, hey. Hold on. Um...I'm sorry I upset you.
 
 
MARIN<br />
It's okay.
 
 
SAM<br />
Can I ask you something?
 
 
MARIN<br />
About?
 
 
SAM<br />
The fire.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Look. You mean well, but you have no idea –
 
 
SAM<br />
You said you didn't start it. I believe you. I can help you, Marin, before he tries to hurt you again.
 
 
They go into SAM’s room. HALLUCIFER is leaning against the wall.
 
 
MARIN<br />
You're worse. Your organs need sleep, you know. Your hair and nails are gonna fall out, and your kidneys are gonna shut down. I saw it in a movie. Sorry.
 
 
HALLUCIFER laughs.
 
 
SAM<br />
So, um, your brother – when did he pass?
 
 
MARIN<br />
Uh, last year.
 
 
SAM<br />
Do you see him?
 
 
MARIN shakes her head.
 
 
SAM<br />
So... he just talks to you. I bet at first it wasn't so bad. You must have missed him. Did you just hear him at the house?
 
 
MARIN<br />
Here too. Whenever I'm alone. I can always tell he's coming because I get these chills.
 
 
SAM<br />
You feel cold.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Yeah. I mean, you're right. At first it's like... I knew I was crazy, but... I didn't really care. I did miss him. But then... he started saying he was lonely. And he started to get mad. And one day he started yelling, and I tried to run but the door was locked. And when I turned around, the whole room was on fire. I barely got out. How can you help me?
 
 
SAM<br />
I can put your brother to rest. He's, um... He's stuck here.
 
 
MARIN<br />
For real? Like –
 
 
SAM<br />
Like he's a ghost.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Why should I trust you?
 
 
SAM<br />
Because it's your only shot.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Okay.
 
 
SAM<br />
Okay. So, your brother – was he cremated? Buried?
 
 
MARIN<br />
We cremated him.
 
 
SAM<br />
And do you have anything of his?
 
 
MARIN touches a bracelet she is wearing.
 
 
MARIN<br />
This. He made it for me. With a busted hand, too. Sliced it open doing stupid archery.
 
 
SAM<br />
He bled on it?
 
 
MARIN<br />
Probably.
 
 
SAM<br />
Good. That's – that's good.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Why is that good?
 
 
SAM<br />
One more question. Is there any chance in hell you got a lighter?
 
 
 
''CAR – NIGHT''
 
 
DEAN is driving, EMMANUEL/CASTIEL is in the passenger seat and MEG is in the back seat.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
This silence is very uncomfortable. Is there something I should know?
 
 
MEG<br />
I don't know. Dean?
 
 
DEAN<br />
No. Meg has that effect. Awkward. You know?
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
That must be difficult for you.
 
 
MEG<br />
Dean's making a joke, Emmanuel.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Oh.
 
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
MARIN comes into SAM’s room holding up a cigarette lighter.
 
 
SAM<br />
Nice. Where'd you score that?
 
 
MARIN<br />
Grabbed it out of Marcus' pocket. Being locked up is really turning me into a decent criminal.
 
 
SAM closes the door and barricades it with a chair.
 
 
SAM<br />
We're laying down a circle. Help me open these, okay?
 
 
They use small containers of salt to make a salt circle.
 
 
SAM looks up and sees HALLUCIFER blowing on the salt. SAM leans back against the wall.
 
 
SAM<br />
You're gonna have to do this on your own. It's okay. I'm okay. I'm just having a little...
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
Brown acid moment.
 
 
SAM<br />
Dizzy thing. It'll pass.
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
Definitely. When your heart stops.
 
 
SAM and MARIN are standing in a small salt circle.
 
 
SAM<br />
Great. Now, um... stay with me in the circle. No matter what. No matter what happens, okay?
 
 
MARIN<br />
What's gonna happen?
 
 
SAM<br />
Give me the bracelet.
 
 
The lights flicker and SAM and MARIN’s breath becomes visible. The GHOST of MARIN’s brother appears.
 
 
GHOST<br />
Marin, don't do this. <i>Please.</i>
 
 
SAM<br />
Marin, give me the bracelet.
 
 
MARIN<br />
I'm so sorry. I have to.
 
 
She breaks the bracelet from her wrist and gives it to SAM. The room shakes, the door flies open and the lights explode. SAM lights the bracelet and the GHOST burns up.
 
 
GHOST<br />
Noooo!
 
 
SAM<br />
Y-you got to go. Go.
 
 
MARIN<br />
Thank you.
 
 
MARIN leaves. Two orderlies enter and grab SAM. We see white light, which becomes DR KADINSKY shining a flashlight in SAM’s face. HALLUCIFER is standing behind DR KADINSKY.
 
 
DR KADINSKY<br />
Sam? How you feeling now?
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
His soul is broken, Doc. Can you give him a pill?
 
 
DR KADINSKY<br />
I can't give you any more medication. The potential for overdose is too great.
 
 
SAM looks at his fingernails, which are bloody.
 
 
DR KADINSKY<br />
We need to talk about surgical solutions.
 
 
SAM<br />
Surgical?
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
Ooh. Lobotomy?
 
 
DR KADINSKY<br />
It's okay. We're not talking lobotomy here.
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
Darn.
 
 
DR KADINSKY<br />
Sam. Are you with me? Sam?
 
 
We see nothing but white light again.
 
 
 
''EXT. HOSPITAL – NIGHT''
 
 
DEAN turns off the engine and gets out of the car. A number of people are standing around the emergency entrance to the hospital. DEAN walks around the car and joins EMMANUEL/CASTIEL and MEG.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Oh, gracious.
 
 
DEAN looks through binoculars at the people outside the emergency entrance.
 
 
MEG<br />
Damn it. Demons.
 
 
DEAN<br />
All of them?
 
 
MEG<br />
No grass growing under <i>your</i> feet.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
How many of those knives do you have?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Just the one.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Well, then, forgive me, but what do we do?
 
 
MEG<br />
Yeah, Dean. Got any other ideas how we could blast through that?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Excuse us. Meg?
 
 
MEG<br />
Oh, for the love of...
 
 
DEAN and MEG walk a short distance away.
 
 
MEG<br />
Sam's in there. I know you're enjoying the double dip with your old pal, but –
 
 
DEAN<br />
You think it's that cut and dry? Really? You know what he did. And you want to tell him and just hope that he takes it in stride? He could snap. He could... disappear. Who knows?
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
I gather we know each other.
 
 
MEG<br />
Just a dollop.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
You can tell me. I'll be fine.
 
 
DEAN<br />
How do you know? You just met yourself. I've known you for years.
 
 
MEG<br />
You're an angel.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
I'm sorry? Is that a flirtation?
 
 
MEG<br />
No, it's a species. A very powerful one.
 
 
DEAN<br />
She's not lying. Okay? That's why you heal people. You don't eat. I'm sure there's more.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Why wouldn't you tell me? Being an angel – it sounds pleasant.
 
 
DEAN<br />
It's not, trust me. It's bloody, it's corrupt. It's not pleasant.
 
 
MEG<br />
He would know. You used to fight together. Bestest friends, actually.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
We're... friends? Am I Cas? I-I had no idea. I don't remember you. I'm sorry.
 
 
MEG<br />
Look. You got the juice. You can smite every demon in that lot.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
But I don't remember how.
 
 
DEAN<br />
It's in there. I'm sure it's just like riding a bike.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
I don't know how to do that, either. [pause] All right, I'll try.
 
 
DEAN<br />
This ain't gonna go well.
 
 
MEG<br />
I don't know. I believe in the little tree topper.
 
 
Music plays as EMMANUEL/CASTIEL walks towards the hospital emergency entrance.
 
 
DEMON<br />
Hey, I know you. You're dead.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Yes, I've heard.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL grabs the DEMON by the front of his shirt. He then puts a hand on the DEMON’s head and the DEMON screams as white light streams from his face. EMMANUEL/CASTIEL flashes back to his time as CASTIEL in [[4.01 Lazarus Rising]]. In the present, EMMANUEL/CASTIEL smites two demons simultaneously with a hand to each of their faces. His flashbacks continue - of him helping DEAN in [[4.22 Lucifer Rising]], breaking the wall in SAM's head and being handed a jar of blood by CROWLEY in [[6.22 The Man Who Knew Too Much]].
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
[in flashback from [[7.01 Meet the New Boss]] ] I'm sorry, Dean. [the souls return to Purgatory]
 
 
MEG<br />
That's my boy.
 
 
One of the DEMONS tries to run away, but EMMANUEL/CASTIEL appears right in front of him.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
I don't think running will save you.
 
 
EMMANUEL/CASTIEL puts a hand to the DEMON’S head and smites him. DEAN and MEG walk up behind EMMANUEL/CASTIEL.
 
 
MEG<br />
That was beautiful, Clarence.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Cas?
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
I remember you.
 
 
CASTIEL turns to face DEAN.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
I remember everything.
 
 
 
== ACT FOUR ==
 
 
''EXT. HOSPITAL – NIGHT''
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
What I did. What I became. Why didn't you tell me?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Because Sam is dying in there.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
Because of me. Everything. All these people. I shouldn't be here.
 
 
CASTIEL walks away.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Cas. Cas!
 
 
[to MEG] You stay here.
 
 
[calls after CASTIEL] Cas!
 
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – NIGHT''
 
 
SAM is being wheeled down a hallway on a hospital bed by the orderly MARCUS. They enter a room.
 
 
SAM<br />
Where... Where – where are we?
 
 
MARCUS<br />
Electroshock therapy. Let's just get you settled. Don't be freaked. I've seen this help a lot of people.
 
 
SAM<br />
Umm, umm – my brother.
 
 
MARCUS puts a mouth guard in SAM’s mouth.
 
 
MARCUS<br />
Bite down.
 
 
MARCUS turns on the machine.
 
 
MARCUS<br />
Ordinarily, they keep this thing set on low. But I was thinking we could experiment a little. What do you say, Sam?
 
 
MARCUS puts the electrodes on SAM’s head.
 
 
MARCUS<br />
Let's get that head strapped in.
 
 
MARCUS' eyes turn black.
 
 
 
''EXT. HOSPITAL – NIGHT''
 
 
CASTIEL is walking away from the hospital, with DEAN close behind him.
 
 
DEAN<br />
If you remember, then you know you did the best you could at the time.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
Don't defend me. Do you have any idea the death toll in Heaven? On Earth?
 
 
CASTIEL stops and turns to face DEAN.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
We didn't part friends, Dean.
 
 
DEAN<br />
So what?
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
I <i>deserved</i> to die. Now, I can't possibly fix it... So why did I even walk out of that river?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Maybe to fix it. Wait.
 
 
DEAN opens the trunk of the car and takes out CASTIEL’s trenchcoat. He holds it out to CASTIEL.
 
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – NIGHT''
 
 
SAM is strapped to the bed and shaking from electric shocks.
 
 
MARCUS<br />
Amazing. You just take those lickin’s, don't you, kid? Well, if it's meat, you can cook it. You just got to turn up the heat.
 
 
MARCUS turns towards the electroshock machine, but CASTIEL is there. CASTIEL puts a hand on MARCUS' head to smite him. MARCUS falls to the ground with his eyes burnt out. CASTIEL turns off the electroshock machine and takes away the electrodes on SAM’s head and the mouth guard.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
I should never have broken your wall, Sam. I'm here to make it right.
 
 
CASTIEL touches SAM’s head, but SAM doesn’t look better. SAM sees HALLUCIFER in CASTIEL’s place.
 
 
SAM<br />
You're not real.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
Oh, Sam... I'm so sorry.
 
 
 
== ACT FIVE ==
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
HALLUCIFER is sitting in a chair next to SAM’s bed, holding the book “Three Little Pigs”.
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
I see that third little pig was smart. Went out and got some bricks.
 
 
DEAN and CASTIEL are standing in the room. The chair next to SAM’s bed is empty.
 
 
DEAN<br />
What the hell do you mean you <i>can't?</i>
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
I mean there's nothing left to rebuild.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Why not?
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
Because it crumbled. The pieces got crushed to dust by whatever's happening inside his head right now.
 
 
DEAN<br />
So you're saying there's nothing? That he's gonna be like this until his candle blows out?
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
I'm sorry. This isn't a problem I can make disappear. And you know that. [pause] But I may be able to shift it.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Shift?
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
Yeah, it would get Sam back on his feet.
 
 
CASTIEL sits on the bed close to SAM.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
It's better this way. I'll be fine.
 
 
SAM flinches.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Wait, Cas, what are you doing?
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
Now, Sam...
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
This may hurt. And if I can't tell you again...
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
...I'm sorry I ever did this to you.
 
 
CASTIEL puts a hand on SAM’s head. SAM groans in pain and his face and eyes glow red. The red travels up CASTIEL’s arm and face and his eyes turn red. SAM groans and gasps for breath.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Sam?
 
 
DEAN walks around the bed to the other side.
 
 
SAM<br />
Dean!
 
 
DEAN<br />
Sam!
 
 
SAM<br />
Cas? Cas, is that you?
 
 
CASTIEL sees HALLUCIFER on the bed in SAM’s place.
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
Hello... brother.
 
 
CASTIEL stands up and backs away in horror. SAM and DEAN look at each other. HALLUCIFER laughs.
 
 
 
''EXT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
SAM and DEAN leave the building.
 
 
SAM<br />
I don't know. I mean, we can't just leave him.
 
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
DEAN (V-O)<br />
Well, we can't bring him with us. Everything on the planet's out for us, okay?
 
 
CASTIEL is sitting sadly on the edge of a bed, dressed in white hospital clothes.
 
 
DEAN (V-O)<br />
Word gets out, we can't protect him. Not really.
 
 
 
''EXT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
DEAN<br />
This is safer.
 
 
DEAN and SAM stop at the driver’s and passenger doors of the car and talk over the car.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Every demon who knows about Cas is dead.
 
 
SAM<br />
Not everyone. Look, Dean, this whole "enemy of my enemy is my friend" thing feels kind of like a demon deal.
 
 
DEAN<br />
It's not a deal. It's –
 
 
SAM<br />
It's what?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Mutually assured destruction. Look, man, I get it. She's not our friend. We don't even have friends. All our friends are dead.
 
 
DEAN gets into the car.
 
 
 
''INT. HOSPITAL – DAY''
 
 
DR KADINSKY is sitting at his desk reading a piece of paper.
 
 
DR KADINSKY<br />
Well, you certainly have experience. I'm impressed. Tell me – why do you want to join our staff?
 
 
MEG<br />
I really just want to help the patients. Watch over them. Not to be immodest, but I feel like I'd make a great fit.
 
 
DR KADINSKY<br />
I can't argue with that.
 
 
DR KADINSKY stands up and offers MEG his hand.
 
 
DR KADINSKY<br />
Welcome to the team... Nurse Masters.
