INT. MOTEL ROOM
SAM There's a cop car outside.
DEAN V.O. You think it's for us?
SAM I don't know.
DEAN I don't see how. I mean we ditched the plates, the credit cards.
INT SAM AND DEAN'S MOTEL ROOM
We see the cop car drive away.
SAM (breathes out) They're leaving. False alarm.
DEAN You see. Nothing to worry about.
SAM Yeah, being fugitives? Freaking dance party.
DEAN Hey man, chicks dig the danger vibe.
INT SAM AND DEAN'S MOTEL ROOM
We see the books SAM is standing in front of. They're all about a specific demon called Djinn, and on top of them is JOHN's journal, open on the same subject.
SAM So, you got anything yet?
DEAN Are you kidding me? How could I? You got me sifting through like 50 square miles of real estate here.
INT MOTEL ROOM
SAM Well, that's where all the victims disappeared.
DEAN Yeah well, I get at least squat. What about you?
INT MOTEL ROOM
SAM Just one thing. I'm pretty sure of it now. (pulls one book closer) We're hunting a Djinn.
DEAN A freaking genie?
DEAN What? You think these suckers can really grant wishes?
INT MOTEL ROOM
SAM I don't know. I guess they're powerful enough. But not exactly like Barbara Eden and the harem pants. I mean, Djinn have been feeding off people for centuries. They're all over the Koran.
DEAN My God. Barbara Eden was hot, wasn't she? Way hotter than that Bewitched chick.
INT MOTEL ROOM
SAM Are you even listening to me?
DEAN Yeah. So uh, what do the Djinns lair at?
INT MOTEL ROOM
SAM Ruins usually. Uh. Bigger the better, more places to hide.
DEAN Yeah, I think I saw a place couple miles back. I'm gonna go check it out.
INT SAM AND DEAN'S MOTEL ROOM
SAM No, no, no, no. Come pick me up first.
DEAN No. I'm sure it's nothing. I just wanna take a look around.
He hangs up the phone.
INT MOTEL ROOM
SAM lowers his hand with the phone in it and sighs.
We see the Impala pull up and almost come to a stop.
We see that it's empty. DEAN looks back and forth in it a few times, and then starts walking back the same direction he came from but this time in the hall. On his right among all the old things and such we see how he passes the figure, which can now be concluded is a DJINN. DEAN doesn't see it and walks on. Suddenly it attacks him, pinning him against the window wall. He drops the flashlight and the DJINN hold his other hand that contains the knife up against the wall, slams it a few times and DEAN drops the knife. The DJINN opens its left hand and it begins to glow in blue, his eyes do the same. It puts its glowing hand on DEAN's forehead and DEAN's eyes rolls up as they become washed-out blue.
INT BEDROOM - NIGHT
A TV showing an old black and white movie. DEAN wakes up and sees a woman lying next to him.
INT APARTMENT - NIGHT
SAM What's going on?
DEAN I don't know. I don't know where I am.
SAM What? What happened?
DEAN The uh, the Djinn. It attacked me.
SAM The gin? You're... drinking gin?
DEAN No, asshat. The Djinn. The uh, scary creature. Remember? It put its hand on me and I woke up next to some hot chick...
SAM Who? Carmen?
SAM Dean, you're drunk. You're drunk-dialing me.
DEAN I'm not drunk. Quit screwing around!
SAM Look, it's late. Alright, just get some sleep and I'll... see you tomorrow. OK?
DEAN Wait, Sam! Sam!
INT LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
DEAN picks up an envelope addressed to:
CARMEN PORTER 53 BARKER AVE LAWRENCE, KS 66044
The next two envelopes are addressed to Dean, same address as Carmen's.
DEAN What the hell?
CARMEN Honey? What are you doing up?
DEAN Hey. Carmen. Carmen, uh, I just uh...
CARMEN Aw, you can't sleep, huh?
CARMEN Well, why don't you come back to bed and let's see if I can do anything to help.
DEAN Sure. Yeah. In a minute. You - you go ahead.
CARMEN (smiling) OK. Don't stay up too long.
Dean picks up a photo. He looks shocked, and drops it.
EXT THE WINCHESTER HOUSE - NIGHT
DEAN drives up in the Impala across the street. He shuts off the engine and goes over and we see that it's the old Winchester house from his childhood.
DEAN banging on the door. He rings the bell two times as well. The porch light turns on and the door opens.
DEAN just stares at her a few seconds, not believing his eyes. His voice is broken when he talks to her, on the verge of crying.
MARY What are you doing here? Are you alright?
DEAN I don't know.
MARY Well... come inside.
INT WINCHESTER HOUSE - NIGHT
DEAN comes in and MARY closes the door. He can't take his eyes of her.
MARY (cont'd) Carmen just called and said you just took off all of a sudden.
DEAN Carmen? Right... Let me ask you a question. When I was a kid, what did you always tell me when you put me to bed?
MARY Dean, I don't understand -
DEAN (hard) Just answer the question.
MARY I told you angels are watching over you.
DEAN I don't believe it.
He walks over and hugs her real tight.
MARY Honey, you're scaring me. (DEAN backs off) Now just tell me what's going on.
DEAN You don't think that wishes can, can really...
DEAN Forget it. (He hugs her again) I get it. I'm just uh... I'm happy to see you, that's all.
He almost starts crying but pulls it together and releases the hug, looking down on MARY.
DEAN (cont'd) You're beautiful. (laughs a little)
MARY (smiling) What?
DEAN Hey, when I was uh... When I was young was there ever a fire here? (walking towards the wall, looking at the books and pictures)
MARY No. Never.
DEAN I thought there was.
We see a picture of JOHN and MARY smiling with DEAN and SAM as little kids in front of them.
DEAN (cont'd) I guess I was wrong.
We see another picture of DEAN in a cap, looking cool into the camera. Another picture of DEAN and his prom date, clearly taken at prom. Another of SAM as a graduate. DEAN picks up another picture. It's in black and white and shows JOHN, dressed in baseball clothes with a cap and a baseball bat in his hand, ready to swing, smiling at the camera.
DEAN (to himself) Dad's on a softball team. (he turns around, MARY looking at his serious) Dad's... Dad's softball team. It's... That's funny to me.
MARY He loved that stupid team.
DEAN Dad's dead? And the thing that killed him was a...
MARY A stroke. He died in his sleep, you know that.
DEAN That's great.
MARY Excuse me?
DEAN That - that's great. That he went peacefully, I mean. That... that sure beats the alternative.
MARY You've been drinking.
DEAN No, I haven't. Mom.
MARY Just gonna call Carmen and have her come pick you up, OK?
DEAN Wait. No, no!
He puts his hand over MARY'S which is over the phone about to pick it up.
DEAN (cont'd) Don't - don't do that. Don't do that. I wanna stay here.
DEAN Because I-I miss the place. It's OK, you - you go to bed. OK?
He goes over to the couch, sits down and looks around a bit. MARY walks up to him, strokes his face.
MARY Are you sure you're alright?
DEAN I think so.
She bends down and kisses his forehead, like all mothers do. She starts out the room, stops by the door.
MARY (cont'd) Get some rest. I love you.
DEAN Me too.
She smiles and then goes to bed. DEAN stays on the couch, looking perplexed. We see a picture of SAM as a graduate with MARY and JOHN smiling proudly next to him.
INT WINCHESTER HOUSE - DAY
DEAN wakes up on the couch to the sound of birds singing outside. When his eyes focus we see it's on a picture of the whole family, the boys as kids and JOHN is wearing a Santa hat, looking very happy. DEAN opens his eyes completely, sitting up, confused. He dials his phone.
SAM'S MACHINE V.O Hey, it's me. I can't come to the pho-
DEAN hangs up.
INT PROFESSOR'S OFFICE
PROFESSOR But I don't think I've seen you in my class before.
DEAN You kiddin' me? I love your lectures. You... You make learning fun.
PROFESSOR So, what can I do for you?
DEAN What can you tell me about Djinns?
DEAN and the PROFESSOR standing over a bunch of books.
PROFESSOR A lot of Muslims believed the Djinn are very real. They're mentioned in the Koran.
DEAN Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. Get to the wish part.
PROFESSOR What about it?
DEAN Do you think they could really do it?
PROFESSOR Um... Uh, no. No, I don't think they can really do it. You understand these are mythic creatures?
DEAN Yeah, I know. I-I-I know. I know. But uh... I mean in the stories. You know. Say you had a wish uh. But you never even said it out loud. You know, like that ah... that a loved one never died. Or that ah, something awful never happened.
PROFESSOR Supposedly, yes. I mean they have Godlike power. They can alter reality however they want. Past. Present. Future.
DEAN Why would the Djinn do it? It was self-defense? Or maybe it's not really evil.
PROFESSOR You been drinking?
DEAN Everybody keeps asking me that. But uh... No.
EXT THE CAMPUS
DEAN opens the trunk to the Impala and we see only old magazines and paper cups and a rag in there, no guns or what have you.
DEAN (laughs) Who'd a thought, baby. We're civilians.
He closes the trunk, and looks over at the building. We see a girl standing in a white shirt, skirt and shoes, staring at him. DEAN looks at her for a little while and then starts to cross the street, walking towards her. Suddenly a car screeches to a halt as it avoids running into DEAN. The driver hits the horn and DEAN holds out his hand as he looks at the car. When he turns back towards the girl to start walking to her again, she's gone.
INT WINCHESTER HOUSE
DEAN takes a bite out of a big sandwich, grunting 'cause of the goodness.
DEAN (calling out, mouth full) This is the best sandwich, ever!
MARY Thank you.
DEAN (still calling) I tried to get hold of Sam earlier. Where - where - where is he?
MARY Oh. He'll be here soon.
DEAN Good. Dying to see him.
MARY Sweetie, I... Don't get me wrong. I am thrilled you are... hanging out here... all of a sudden. (she quickly strokes DEAN's chin) But uh... shouldn't you be at work?
MARY At the garage.
DEAN Right. The garage. It's where I work, yeah. No, I-I've got the day off. (snickers) Good thing.
He takes another bite, again with the grunting of goodness. He looks to the window.
DEAN looking out the window.
DEAN That lawn looks like it could use some mowing.
MARY You wanna mow the lawn?
DEAN You kidding? I'd love to mow the law.
MARY Knock yourself out. Could think you never mowed a lawn in your life.
DEAN looks all kinds of happy about this.
EXT WINCHESTER HOUSE
DEAN starts the lawnmower. He starts to mow the lawn, looking really happy, enjoying it. He sees the neighbor across the street putting out the garbage. He waves to him like a regular guy does in this regular world. He waves back and then DEAN continues the mowing.
DEAN sitting on the steps to the front porch, drinking a beer, feeling happy about his work on the lawn. A car drives up outside the yard.
DEAN I don't believe it
He gets up to go greet SAM and JESSICA who are getting out of the car. DEAN attacks JESSICA with a hug while SAM takes out the luggage from the trunk.
JESSICA You're, uh... Good to see you too, Dean. (DEAN laughs) Can't breathe. (he lets go)
DEAN (smiling big) Look at you. You're with Jessica, it's - I don't believe it. (laughs)
DEAN Where'd you guys come from?
SAM We just flew in from... Califor–
DEAN California! Stanford. Huh? Law school, I bet.
SAM (motioning to the beer in DEAN's hand) I see you started off Mom's birthday with a bang as usual
DEAN Wait. Mom's birthday, that's today?
SAM Yeah. Yeah, Dean. That's today. That's why we're here. Don't tell me you forgot.
They're all sitting at a round table. DEAN gets served a plate.
DEAN Wow, that... looks awesome.
SAM Alright. To Mom. (raises glass) Happy birthday.
JESSICA Happy birthday.
MARY Thank you.
They all clink their glasses in a cheer.
DEAN To mom.
As DEAN watches, SAM and JESSICA kiss. He smiles.
CARMEN (to DEAN) I was really worried about you last night.
DEAN Oh I'm... I'm good. I'm really good.
CARMEN OK. What do you say, later we get you a cheeseburger?
DEAN Oh God, yes. (she smiles) How did I end up with such a cool chick?
CARMEN Just got low standards.
He laughs and kisses her.
SAM Alright. Jess and I actually have another surprise for mom's birthday. Ah... You wanna tell 'em?
JESSICA They're your family.
MARY (smiling) What? Tell me what?
SAM hold up JESSICA's left hand and we see an engagement ring on her finger. MARY laughs happily.
MARY (happy) Oh my God! That's so wonderful.
She gets up and hugs JESSICA, who's also gotten up. We see SAM and CARMEN getting up as well, while DEAN still sits.
CARMEN (to JESSICA) Congratulations.
JESSICA Thank you.
SAM Thank you.
MARY walks over and hugs SAM.
MARY I just wish your dad was here.
SAM Yeah. Me too.
MARY Jessica, let me see that ring.
DEAN Congratulations Sammy.
DEAN I'm really glad you're happy.
We see over SAM's shoulder, the girl who DEAN saw on campus earlier, when he was almost hit by a car. She looks much filthier this time. DEAN sees her, brushes past SAM and walks over. SAM turns around when DEAN hits his shoulder while passing by. DEAN passes a lot of people and when he passes the last one, the girl is gone.
DEAN turns around and looks at his family, as they stand looking at him, wondering what's up.
INT WINCHESTER HOUSE
We hear the door open as the start with the camera on a picture of JOHN holding a very very big fish in his hands, looking happy. The women laugh as they enter.
SAM So, Dean, what was uh... what was all that back at the restaurant?
DEAN Ah... I-I thought I saw someone. Sure it's nothing.
MARY Well, I had a lovely birthday. Thank you. Good night.
JESSICA and CARMEN Good night.
DEAN Good night.
SAM Night, Mom. (to the others) Yeah, well I'm beat. (to JESSICA) Ready to turn in?
SAM Alright. Good night guys.
DEAN Wait a second. Wait a second. Come on, it's not even nine o'clock yet. Let's uh... Let's go have a drink or something.
SAM Yeah, maybe another time.
DEAN Come on, man. Look at us. Huh? We both have beautiful women on our arms. You're engaged. Let’s go celebrate.
SAM (to JESSICA and CARMEN) Guys, can you excuse us? I just want to talk to my brother for a sec.
JESSICA Come on, Carmen.
The girls leave the room and SAM turns to DEAN.
SAM Come here. (he walks to the other side of the living room)
DEAN What? (follows)
SAM OK. What's gotten into you?
DEAN What do you mean?
SAM I mean this whole warm, fuzzy ecstasy trip thing.
DEAN I'm just happy for you, Sammy.
SAM Yeah, right. That's another thing. Since when do you call me Sammy? (beat) Dean, come on. We don't talk outside of holidays.
DEAN We don't? Well, we should. I mean, you're my brother.
SAM "You're my brother"?
DEAN (laughing) Yeah.
SAM You know, that's what you said when you snaked my ATM card, or when you bailed on my graduation, or when you hooked up with Rachel Nave.
SAM Uh, my prom date. On prom night.
DEAN Yeah, that does kinda sound like me. Whoa, hey man, I'm sorry about all that. (walks towards SAM)
SAM (backs away) No that, look, that's alright man, I-I just... You know I'm not asking you to change. I-I just I... I don't know, I... guess we just don't really have anything in common. You know?
SAM starts to walk away.
DEAN Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Yes we do. Yes we do. (laughs)
SAM Hunting? I've never been hunting in my life, Dean.
DEAN Yeah, well. We should go at it sometime. I... I think you'd be great at it.
SAM starts to walk away again.
SAM (turns around) Get some rest.
He walks away and leaves DEAN in the living room.
INT DEAN'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
DEAN is sitting on the sofa, thinking, furrowed brow. CARMEN offers him a beer.
DEAN My favorite. I guess you know me pretty well.
CARMEN 'Fraid so. You alright?
DEAN Sammy and I... You know we don't get along.
CARMEN Well, you don't spend a lot of time together. I mean, I just think you don't know each other all that well.
CARMEN For the record: He doesn't know what he's missing.
DEAN I can fix things with Sam. I can make it up to him. To everyone.
CARMEN Ok. What's gotten into you lately?
DEAN This isn't gonna make a lick of sense to you. But I kind of feel like I've been given a second chance. And I don't wanna waste it.
CARMEN You're right, that doesn't make any sense.
DEAN leans in and kisses her.
DEAN You know, I get it.
CARMEN Get what?
DEAN Why you're the one.
CARMEN Well. (he kisses her again) Whatever's gotten into you... I like it. (they begin to kiss) Ohhh... come on. Don't do this to me now. I've gotta get ready for work. (gets off the couch, leaving DEAN sitting with his hands as if she was still between them)
DEAN Go to work now?
CARMEN Yeah, I told you. I've got the night shifts on Thursday.
DEAN (getting up) You work nights at the, uh...
INT DEAN'S BEDROOM
CARMEN is standing by the closet, taking out scrubs. DEAN stands in the doorway.
DEAN (cont'd) …hospital. (to himself) I'm dating a nurse. That is so... respectable.
CARMEN smiles at his words. DEAN looks at her... well butt probably, and takes a sip of beer.
INT DEAN'S LIVING ROOM
DEAN is on the couch, putting his feet on the table, drinking beer and watching TV.
WOMAN The olive-oil must have a purpose here.
MAN I'll take the olive oil and we'll just put a, just a touch of olive oil, OK? That's all.
MAN Can't make any mistakes with this machine. Now, the liquid. I could use water but I'm gonna use a little spinach -
DEAN changed the channel to the stock market, cartoon and then the news. We see a land plane and hear a reporter:
REPORTER And today marks the anniversary of the crash of United Britannia Flight 424.
This gets DEAN's attention and he leans forward as he continues to watch.
REPORTER (cont'd) Indianapolis residents held a candlelight vigil in memory of the hundred people who lost their lives...
DEAN No, no. I stopped that crash.
DEAN in front of his laptop reading headlines that relate to cases he has solved.
INT DEAN'S BEDROOM
EXT GRAVEYARD NIGHT
DEAN is standing by JOHN's grave. We see during the scene that it is written on it:
JOHN E. WINCHESTER 1954-2006 LOVING HUSBAND & FATHER REMEMBERED FOREVER
DEAN All of them. Everyone that you saved, everyone Sammy and I saved. They're all dead. And there's this woman that's haunting me. I don't know why. I don't know what the connection is, not yet anyway. It's like my old life is coming after me or something. Like it like it doesn't want me to be happy. Course I know what you'd say. Well, not the you that played softball but... So go hunt the Djinn. He put you here, it can put you back. Your happiness for all those people's lives, no contest. Right? But why? Why is it my job to save these people? Why do I have to be some kind of hero? (begins to cry while talking) What about us, huh? Mom's not supposed to live her life. Sammy's not supposed to get married. Why do we have to sacrifice everything, dad? (pause) It's... (Silence. We hear the sky rumbling. Tears begins to falls on DEAN's cheek.) Yeah...
He turns around and walks away as the camera goes higher and we see him further and further up from the sky.
INT WINCHESTER HOUSE; SAM AND JESSICA'S ROOM - NIGHT
We hear a car outside. A dog barks. Then we hear a noise downstairs. SAM wakes.
INT WINCHESTER HOUSE
SAM comes down the stairs, quietly, with a bat in his hand.
INT LIVING ROOM
SAM stops in the doorway, leaning looking into the living room. He sees the window open and under it, someone is in one of the cabinets. SAM goes in, swinging. The person gets up and counterattacks, throwing him on the floor. We see that it's DEAN.
DEAN (breathes) That's was so easy, I'm embarrassed for you.
SAM Dean? What the hell are you doing here?
DEAN gets up, letting SAM get up off the floor. They stand in front of the window � much like the first scene between them in the pilot when DEAN breaks into SAM's apartment.
DEAN I was looking for a beer.
SAM In the china cabinet?
SAM goes to turn on the light and we see the box with their parents silverware on the floor, open.
SAM That's mom's silver.
SAM What, you... broke into the house... to steal Mom's silver?
DEAN It's not what it looks like. OK, I didn't have a choice.
SAM Oh really? Why? What's so damn important you gotta steal from your own mother?
DEAN You want the truth?
SAM Yeah, yeah I do.
DEAN (shrugs) I owe somebody money.
DEAN A bookie. I lost big on a game, I gotta bring him the cash tonight.
SAM I can't believe we're even related.
DEAN Sam, I'm sorry.
SAM (quietly) Yeah.
DEAN I'm sorry we don't get along. And I wish to hell I could stay and fix it. But I gotta do this. People’s lives depend on it.
He turns around and take a knife from the box.
SAM What are you talking about, Dean?
DEAN Nothing. Forget it. Just uh... hey, tell Mom I love her.
SAM frowns, seeing that something is up. DEAN goes for the door.
DEAN (turns around) I'll see you, Sammy.
He walks out the door, one last look at SAM. SAM stands in the living room where DEAN left him, confused. We hear the Impala's engine start.
EXT WINCHESTER HOUSE; THE IMPALA - NIGHT
DEAN is sitting in the car, engine going, thinking. Suddenly the passenger door opens and SAM gets in the car.
DEAN Get out of the car.
SAM I'm going with you.
DEAN You're just gonna slow me down.
DEAN This is dangerous and you could get hurt.
SAM Yeah, and so could you Dean.
SAM Look, whatever stupid thing you're about to do, you're not doing it alone. And that's that.
DEAN I don't understand. Why you doing this?
SAM (sighs) Because you're still my brother.
SAM What are you calling me a bitch for?
DEAN You're supposed to say jerk.
DEAN Never mind.
He puts the Impala in gear and they drive off.
EXT ROAD - NIGHT
The Impala comes down the road towards the camera
The Impala's license plate, which is now RMD 5H2 - Kansas plates. The camera goes up to SAM and DEAN.
INT IMPALA - NIGHT
SAM looks down on a bag on the seat between them.
SAM What's in the bag?
DEAN Yeah, nothin'.
SAM Fine (grabs the bag and begins to open it)
DEAN You don't wanna do that.
SAM Oh really?
He takes out what was in the bag. It's a container of blood.
SAM (cont'd) (looking at the container) What the hell is this?
SAM (upset) Yeah, I can see that it's blood, Dean! What the hell is it doing in here?
DEAN You don't really wanna know.
SAM No I-I do really wanna know. I really, really, do.
DEAN Yeah, well you're gonna find out sooner or later. I needed a silver knife dipped in lambs blood.
SAM You needed a silver knife dipped in lambs blood, why?
DEAN Because there's this creature. A Djinn. And I have to hunt it.
SAM OK. Um... stop the car.
DEAN I know how it sounds.
SAM Great. Just... stop the car.
DEAN It's the truth, Sam. Alright, there are things out there in the dark. There – there – there are bad things. There are nightmare things. And people have to be saved and if we don't save them, then nobody will.
SAM Look, I wanna help you, alright. I-I really really do, but you're having some kind of psychotic breakdown so... just –
DEAN I wish.
SAM picks up his phone and starts dialing a number. DEAN rolls down his window, grabs SAM's phone and throws it out and then rolls it up again.
SAM What the hell was that, Dean? That was my phone!
DEAN I'm not going to a rubber room, Sammy. And we've got work to do.
SAM What? I was just trying to help you out, Dean. I don't I don't want you to get yourself hurt.
DEAN What? You protect me?
DEAN (laughs) That's hilarious. Why don't you just sit tight and try not to get us both killed.
DEAN starts the radio and music blares out.
EXT OLD FACTORY BUILDINGS
The same shot of the Impala driving up between the building shows, as we saw in the teaser. The car stops while we still hear the music blaring.
DEAN looks over at SAM who is asleep. He picks up his flashlight and shines it on SAM's face. SAM wakes with a start.
SAM Where are we?
DEAN Well, we're not in Kansas anymore. (he smiles at SAM. When there's no reaction the smile dies) Illinois.
SAM And you think something's in there?
DEAN I know it is.
INT OLD FACTORY BUILDING
We're back in the room with the glass wall to our right. DEAN and SAM comes walking in, flashlight in hand.
SAM See? There's nothing here, Dean.
DEAN starts walking down the hallway, same way as last time when he got attacked. SAM closely follows behind.
SAM Look, Carmen's gotta be worried sick about you, Dean. Come on, let- Let's just go.
We hear sounds and SAM finally starts to take it serious.
SAM What the hell is that?
DEAN Stay behind me and keep your mouth shut.
INT BIG ROOM
DEAN and SAM approaches and while the camera moves backwards we see bodies hanging from the ceiling appearing before them. It's the same bodies DEAN saw in his closet earlier.
FLASH TO THE CLOSET
INT BIG ROOM
We see a drained blood bag hanging next to one of the bodies.
SAM What the hell?
DEAN looks further to the right, and we see the woman DEAN has been seeing all through the episode, hanging like the bodies. They approach her and we see another blood bag next to her, filled with blood. Her eyes are open and she looks pretty dead. We flash a few times to her in front of the campus building earlier.
DEAN It's her.
SAM looks at the bag and at her writs that are tied, just like the others. She begins to make sounds.
SAM Dean, what's going on?
DEAN (grabs him) Shh!
We see what DEAN saw: the Djinn is coming out. When it comes out from behind a wall and walks up behind the woman, the guys are gone.
WOMAN (sobbing) Where's my dad? I wonder how... (looking at the Djinn) Don't. (she moves her feet away from the Djinn while we see that DEAN and SAM has hidden. She's crying) Where's my dad.
The DJINN touches her face.
We see some blue flares go over her cheek as he strokes her. His eyes glow bright blue.
DJINN (cont'd) Sleep.
Her head falls forward, eyes still open and her feet relaxes, falling forward again. The DJINN rests his face against her arms, touching her right arm and breathing heavily, eyes closed. He then goes for the blood bag, pulls out one straw and puts it to his mouth, drinking her blood.
SAM sees this and coughs in disgust. The DJINN turns around right away, eyes flash blue and he begins to move towards their hiding place. When he gets there, the guys are gone.
The DJINN walks up some creaky steps and we see SAM and DEAN standing below them, looking up, following his steps. When a door closes in the background SAM begins to breath loudly.
SAM This is real? You're not crazy?
DEAN She didn't know where she was. She thought she was with her father.
DEAN and SAM walk up to the woman again.
DEAN What if that's what the Djinn does? It doesn't grant you a wish, it just makes you think it has.
SAM Look man. That thing could come back, alright?
DEAN walks past SAM in the opposite direction of the woman. He looks up at a light bulb and it starts to flicker in brighter light. We begin to get flashes of DEAN, hanging like the woman. DEAN gets a little trouble breathing, probably shock for starting to realize what's going on.
SAM Dean, please.
DEAN (breathing heavily) What if I'm like her? What if I'm tied up here someplace? What if all this is in my head? (he walks up to the woman) I mean it could, you know, maybe it gives us some kind of supernatural acid, and then just feeds on us slow.
SAM No. Dean, that doesn't make sense. OK?
DEAN What if that's why she keeps appearing to me? She's not a spirit. It's - it's like more and more like I'm catching flashes of reality. You know, like I'm in here somewhere. I'm - I'm catatonic, and I'm taking all this stuff in but I, but I can't snap out of it.
SAM Yeah, OK, look. Yeah, yeah, yeah, you're right. I was wrong. You're not crazy but we – we – we need to get out of here. Fast.
He starts to pull DEAN with him. DEAN pulls his arm loose from SAM. SAM looks at him and throws his arms out like �what?�.
DEAN I don't think you're real.
SAM (agitated, sucks in a breath) Dude, you feel that? (he's grabbing DEAN by the arms) You feel this? I'm real. This is not an acid trip. I'm real, and that thing is gonna come down here and kill us for real. No please.
DEAN There's one way to be sure. (he pulls out the silver knife)
SAM (backing off) Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you doing?
DEAN It's an old wives' tale. If you're about to die in a dream, you wake up.
SAM No, no, no, no, no, no, no. That's crazy. Alright?
DEAN (with a determined look) Maybe.
SAM (start walking towards DEAN) You're gonna kill yourself- (DEAN holds out the knife and his other hand to stop him) OK.
DEAN Or I'm gonna wake up. One or the other.
SAM OK. This isn't a dream, alright. I'm here, with you, now. And you're about to kill yourself, Dean.
DEAN No, I'm pretty sure. Like, 90% sure. But I'm sure enough.
He turns the knife on himself, takes both his hands to the handle, ready to thrust it into himself.
Suddenly MARY walks up next to DEAN, in the same nightgown as she died in. Behind SAM, CARMEN appears.
SAM Why'd you have to keep digging?
DEAN looks back at MARY. We see JESSICA appearing on his right side.
SAM (cont'd) Why couldn't you have left well enough alone? (DEAN looks around) You were happy.
MARY comes up in front of DEAN.
MARY Put the knife down, honey.
DEAN You're not real. (tears in his eyes) None of it is.
MARY It doesn't matter. It's still better than anything you had.
MARY It's everything you want. We're a family again. Let’s go home.
DEAN (shaking his head) I'll die. (voice breaking) The Djinn'll... drain the life out of me in a couple of days.
MARY But in here, with us. It'll feel like years. Like a lifetime. (DEAN looks over at SAM who half-smiles and nods to him) I promise. (She takes his chin in her hand, he looks down on her) No more pain. (strokes his cheek) Or fear. Just love and comfort. And safety. Dean, stay with us. (strokes his other cheek and he leans into her hand, closing his eyes) Get some rest.
JESSICA You don't have to worry about Sam anymore. (DEAN looks over at her) You get to watch him live a full life.
MARY steps away, and CARMEN walks up to him, taking his face in her hands, kissing him.
CARMEN We can have a future together. Have our own family. I love you, Dean. Please.
SAM walks up to him
SAM "Why is it our job to save everyone? Haven't we done enough?" I'm begging you. (breathes in) Give me the knife.
DEAN looks at CARMEN, SAM and MARY with tears in his eyes. Then he backs away looking at the floor. He raises his head, looking at SAM.
DEAN (whisper) I'm sorry.
He thrusts the knife into himself, blood immediately comes out of his mouth.
SAM DEAN! DEAN! Dean.
SAM walks up to DEAN and we see now that the SAM saying "DEAN" is the real SAM. DEAN is hanging from the ceiling like the other woman, eyes open. A blood bag hangs next to him.
SAM Oh God. Come on. (shaking him) Hey. Wake up. Wake up, damn it!
DEAN grunts a little. His eyes begin to focus on SAM.
SAM Hey. Hey.
DEAN Ahh... Auntie Em. There's no place like home.
SAM Thank God. Thought I lost you for a second. (he pulls out the tube in DEAN's throat)
DEAN You almost did.
SAM Oh god. (breathing heavily) Let's get you down.
SAM reaches up and starts to cut through the rope as DEAN winces over the pain and grunts a little. We see two bright blue eyes next to SAM in the shadows, and the DJINN comes out.
DEAN (seeing the DJINN) SAM!
SAM turns around, going to the DJINN with the knife. The DJINN has SAM for a moment, gets him to drop the knife. DEAN tries to pull himself loose where SAM had started cutting through the rope before. The DJINN gets the upper hand on SAM and has him by the throat and moves his hand to his forehead, but SAM has a hold of his wrist, trying to stop him. The DJINN opens his fist and blue light begins to appear around his hand, like it did when it got DEAN.
When its hand is almost at SAM's forehead DEAN thrusts the knife into the back of the DJINN, turns it and we see the blue light go out of its eyes. It closes its eyes, its head rolls down and when DEAN pulls out the knife, it falls to the ground dead.
SAM breathes heavily from being strangled and DEAN doesn't look too good.
DEAN walks up to the girl. We see a tear roll down one cheek. He puts his hand to her neck, feeling for a pulse.
DEAN She's still alive. (handing the knife over to SAM) Sam...
DEAN pulls out the tube in her neck as SAM cuts her rope. DEAN catches her as she goes down.
DEAN (SAM watches) I gotcha. I gotcha. We're gonna get you out of here, OK? I gotcha. (She makes small wheezing sounds) I got you.
INT SAM AND DEAN'S MOTEL ROOM
DEAN is on the bed.
SAM (on the phone) OK, uh, thank you so much for the update. OK, bye. (he hangs up) That was the hospital. Girl's been stabilized. Good chance she's gonna pull through.
DEAN That's good.
SAM Yeah. How 'bout you? You alright?
DEAN (clears throat) Yeah, I'm alright. (pause) Should have seen it, Sam. Our lives. You were such a wozzie.
SAM (smiles) So we didn't get along then, huh?
SAM Yeah... I thought it was supposed to, to be this perfect fantasy.
DEAN It wasn't. Was just a wish. I wished for mom to live. That mom never died, we never went hunting and you and me just never uh... You know.
Yeah. Well, I'm glad we do. And I'm glad you dug yourself out, Dean. Most people wouldn't have the strength, would have just stayed.
DEAN Yeah... Lucky me. I gotta tell you though, man. You know, you had Jess. Mom was gonna have grandkids...
SAM Yeah, but... Dean... wasn't real.
DEAN I know. But I wanted to stay. I wanted to stay so bad. I mean, ever since Dad... all I can think about is how much this job's cost us. We've lost so much. We've... sacrificed so much.
SAM But people are alive because of you. It's worth it, Dean. It is. It's not fair, and... you know, it hurts like hell, but... it's worth it.
