HALLUCIFER lights a firecracker and tosses it to the floor.

''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 Emanuel 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 Emanuel. 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 EMANUEL/CASTIEL.
 
 
EMANUEL/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, EMANUEL/CASTIEL is in the passenger seat and MEG is in the back seat.
 
 
EMANUEL/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?
 
 
EMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
That must be difficult for you.
 
 
MEG<br />
Dean's making a joke, Emanuel.
 
 
EMANUEL/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?
 
The use small bottles 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 KARINSKY shining a flashlight in SAM’s face. HALLUCIFER is standing behind DR KARINSKY.
 
 
DR KARINSKY<br />
Sam? How you feeling now?
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
His soul is broken, Doc. Can you give him a pill?
 
 
DR KARINSKY<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 KARINSKY<br />
We need to talk about surgical solutions.
 
 
SAM<br />
Surgical?
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
Ooh. Lobotomy?
 
 
DR KARINSKY<br />
It's okay. We're not talking lobotomy here.
 
 
HALLUCIFER<br />
Darn.
 
 
DR KARINSKY<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 EMANUEL/CASTIEL and MEG.
 
 
EMANUEL/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.
 
 
EMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
How many of those knives do you have?
 
 
DEAN<br />
Just the one.
 
 
EMANUEL/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?
 
 
EMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
I gather we know each other.
 
 
MEG<br />
Just a dollop.
 
 
EMANUEL/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.
 
 
EMANUEL/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.
 
 
EMANUEL/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.
 
 
EMANUEL/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.
 
 
EMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
But I don't remember how.
 
 
DEAN<br />
It's in there. I'm sure it's just like riding a bike.
 
 
EMANUEL/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 EMANUEL/CASTIEL walks towards the hospital emergency entrance.
 
 
DEMON<br />
Hey, I know you. You're dead.
 
 
EMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
Yes, I've heard.
 
 
EMANUEL/CASTIEL puts a hand on the DEMON’s chest. Nothing happens. He then puts a hand on the DEMON’s head and the DEMON screams as white light streams from his face. EMANUEL/CASTIEL flashes back to his time as CASTIEL. In the present, EMANUEL/CASTIEL exorcises two demons simultaneously with a hand to each of their heads. His flashbacks continue.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
[in flashback from [[7.01 Meet The New Boss]] ] I'm sorry, Dean.
 
 
MEG<br />
That's my boy.
 
 
One of the demons tries to run away, but EMANUEL/CASTIEL appears right in front of him.
 
 
EMANUEL/CASTIEL<br />
I don't think running will save you.
 
 
EMANUEL/CASTIEL puts a hand to the demon’s head and exorcises him. DEAN and MEG walk up behind EMANUEL/CASTIEL.
 
 
MEG<br />
That was beautiful, Clarence.
 
 
DEAN<br />
Cas?
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
I remember you.
 
 
CASTIEL turns around to face DEAN.
 
 
CASTIEL<br />
I remember everything.
