Synopsis

Sam is dead and Bobby suggests that it's time they bury him and leave to prepare for whatever is to come next. Dean is furious at the idea and tells Bobby to leave.

Meanwhile, the Yellow-Eyed Demon appears to Jake and tells him that he is the strongest and has to do something for him.

Dean is unable to decide what to do next and is heartbroken at the thought of letting everyone in his life down. In a fit of despair, he drives to the nearest crossroads and summons a demon. The demon, however, will not agree to grant Dean the return of his brother and ten years of life. The demon offers Dean one year, and one year only, promising that if he tries to get out of the deal, Sam will drop dead straight away. Dean agrees.

Sam wakes up in pain but is largely healed. Because his brother is unaware that he has been resurrected from the dead, Dean lies and tells Sam he was only wounded. Sam fills Dean in on what happened previously (2.21 All Hell Breaks Loose: Part One) and wants to recommence hunting immediately. Dean, reluctant but unable to deter Sam, drives them over to Bobby's place.

Bobby sees Sam and knows immediately what Dean has done, but plays along, and privately reproaches Dean. So far Bobby has found nothing but demonic omens appearing in the state of Wyoming, except for one particular area. Ellen appears at Bobby's and, after Bobby gets her to drink holy water to confirm that she is not possessed, she produces a map of Wyoming that Ash left. On the map, five locations have been marked with Xs. Each X marks an abandoned frontier church, all mid-19th century, built by Samuel Colt. A set of iron railway lines connecting each church forms a pentagram, making a hundred square mile devil's trap.

Within the devil's trap is an old cowboy cemetery, which Dean suggests could contain something that Samuel Colt wanted to imprison, rather than trying to keep demons out. They know the devil's trap is still unbroken because of the lack of demonic omens in the area and Bobby says that full-blooded demons would not be able to enter. Remembering his dream from last episode, Sam understands the purpose of the Special Children.

Jake arrives in Wyoming and the Yellow-Eyed Demon gives him instructions to open a crypt with the Colt as the key. On arrival at the cemetery, Dean, Sam, Bobby and Ellen ambush Jake but are overpowered by his psychic powers. Jake unlocks the crypt and is shot dead multiple times by Sam. Dean removes the Colt and they dive for cover as the doors are flung open and a tremor ripples out from the crypt, breaking the railway line and thus the devil's trap. Hundreds of demons and ghosts fly out of the crypt, which is actually a Devil's Gate, an entrance to Hell, and enter the world.

Bobby, Ellen and Sam run to shut the doors of the Devil's Gate. The Yellow-Eyed Demon steps into the cemetery, snatches the Colt from Dean and flings him against a headstone. He thanks Dean for bringing Sam back into the game and prepares to kill him. Suddenly, the spirit of John appears and wrestles the Demon out of his physical body, giving Dean enough time to grab the Colt and shoot the Demon when he re-enters the body, killing him. Ellen and Bobby then manage to close the Devil's Gate.

John shares an emotional moment with his sons then moves on and disappears. Sam finds out the truth about his death and what Dean did to save him. In an emotional moment of brotherly love, Sam swears that he will get Dean out of his deal. Even though the Yellow-Eyed Demon died, an army of demons was unleashed; the war has just begun.

Quotes

Bobby: Something big is going down, end of the world big.

Dean: Well then LET IT END!
Bobby: You don't mean that.

Dean: You don't think so? Huh? You don't think I've given enough? You don't think I've paid enough? I'm done with it, all of it. If you know what's good for you, you turn around and get the hell out of here. GO!
Jake: Go to Hell.
The Yellow-Eyed Demon: Been there, done that.
Dean: When you were little, couldn't have been more than five, you just started asking questions. How come we didn't have a mom? Why did we always have to move around? Where's Dad? I remember I begged you: "Quit asking, Sammy. You don't want to know." I just wanted you to be a kid, just for a little while longer. Always tried to protect you. Keep you safe. Dad didn't even have to tell me. It was just always my responsibility, you know? It's like I had one job. I had one job, and I screwed it up. I blew it, and for that, I'm sorry. I guess that’s what I do. I let down the people I love. You know, I let Dad down, and now I guess I’m just supposed to let you down, too. How can I? How am I supposed to live with that? What am I supposed to do? Sammy? What am I supposed to do?
Crossroads Demon: Make sure you bury Sam before he starts stinking up the joint.

Dean: Wait!

Crossroads Demon: It's a fire sale and everything must go.
Bobby: I could throttle you!
Dean: And send me downstairs ahead of schedule?
Jake: What are you going to do, kill me?

Sam: It's a thought.
Jake: You had your chance, you couldn't.

Sam: I won't make that mistake twice.
The Yellow-Eyed Demon: You saw what your brother just did to Jake. That was pretty cold, wasn't it? How certain are you that what you brought back is 100 percent pure Sam? You of all people should know what's dead should stay dead.
Sam: I kinda can't believe it, Dean. I mean our whole lives, everything has been prepping for this and now I... I kinda don't know what to say.
Dean: I do. That was for our mom, you son of a bitch.
Sam: You've saved my life over and over. I mean, you sacrifice everything for me. Don't you think I'd do the same for you? You're my big brother. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you. And I don't care what it takes, I'm gonna get you out of this. Guess I gotta save your ass for a change.
The Yellow-Eyed Demon: (to Dean about his deal to bring Sam back) You of all people should know "what's dead should stay dead.
The Yellow-Eyed Demon: (to Dean) Anyway, thanks a bunch, I knew I kept you alive for some reason. Until now anyway. I couldn't have done it without your pathetic self-loathing, self-destructive desire to sacrifice yourself for your family!
[As The Yellow-Eyed Demon goes to shoot Dean, John pulls him from his body for a moment allowing Dean to grab the Colt and shoot Azazel dead when he reenters his body]
