NOW

EXT. – RAILWAY – NIGHT


Someone we can see only from the legs downwards is breathing heavily as they run slowly along the railway track. The person leaves the track and bumps into a MAN walking alongside it.


MAN
Hey! Dick!


The person who was running turns around and we see that it is SAM. SAM then starts to run again, goes through a gate, and walks along a heavily-graffitied alleyway. A woman is buying drugs from a DEALER. The woman leaves and SAM walks closer to the DEALER.


DEALER
Dude. Get the hell away from me.


SAM rubs a hand over his face. He looks exhausted.


DEALER
You speak friggin' English? Go away!


SAM
It's okay. No one's after me.


DEALER
Why are you running up in here like that?


SAM
Just... Just leave me alone.


SAM slides down to the ground with his back against a post.


DEALER
What the hell did you take, anyway?


SAM
Nothing.


DEALER
Shut up.


HALLUCIFER
No, he's telling the truth. Burned through that last beer hours ago. Right about the time Dean passed out. Come on, Sam. Tell the nice tweaker. You'd be sleeping by now if the devil would just leave you alone for five seconds. Stupid Satan. Chasing you all the way to... Where the hell are we?


SAM
[Holding his face in his hands] Gah! I just need some rest.


HALLUCIFER
Hey. Sam. Try the hand scar.


SAM
Ugh!


DEALER
How many days you been up, anyway?


HALLUCIFER
Four. Oh. Wait. [Looks at his watch] Scratch that. Five.


SAM gets to his feet and starts to walk away.


DEALER
Hey, hold up! Wait! Hold up!


SAM turns around.


DEALER
You want to knock out? I can knock you out.


CUT TO: SAM and the DEALER are asleep in the front seats of a car. Something shatters the windshield, spraying glass over SAM. SAM gets out. A bar is protruding through the shattered windshield, but when SAM looks again, the windshield is intact. HALLUCIFER appears behind SAM.


HALLUCIFER
[singing and making hand motions] Good morning to you, good morning to you…


SAM walks away.


HALLUCIFER
[singing and making hand motions] …our day is beginning, so good morning to you.

[calls after SAM] I thought you liked my singing!


CUT TO: HALLUCIFER walking just behind SAM. SAM is breathing heavily and blinking rapidly.


HALLUCIFER
Pills? You do get that you're just bringing free drugs to the party, right? I am inside you, Sam. Hey. Sam. What's the longest a normal human being has ever gone without sleep? 11 days. [chuckles] Hey. You always wanted to be normal, Sam!


CUT TO: SAM running away from HALLUCIFER.


HALLUCIFER
If you are, you'll be dead in a week!


SAM runs in front of a car, which hits him and sends him up onto the windshield, over the car and to the ground.


SUPERNATURAL (Title Card)


ACT ONE

INT. – HOSPITAL – DAY

A DOCTOR is working at his desk. DEAN opens the door and enters, followed by a nurse.


NURSE
Okay, sir? You can't just barge in here without an appointment!


DEAN
They said, "Talk to Kadinsky." You Kadinsky?


NURSE
You need to be scheduled!


DEAN
Well, then, schedule me! He was in a car crash. Why the hell can't I see him?


DR KADINSKY
You're Sam Smith's brother.


DEAN
Yeah, what's going on?


DR KADINSKY
[to the NURSE] I-it's fine. Thank you. Really.


The NURSE leaves.


DR KADINSKY
Sam was admitted. He was treated for a broken rib and lacerations.


DEAN
Okay. That's not too bad. And?


DR KADINSKY
And... he's on our locked psychiatric floor.


DEAN
I mean, he's had some trouble...


DR KADINSKY
So you're aware that Sam is experiencing a full-blown psychotic episode?


DEAN
Psychotic? Come on. I mean, the guy's... It's not like the guy's freakin' Norman Bates.


DR KADINSKY
No, I'm sure he isn't. We need to determine whether his state was brought on by the insomnia or whether the insomnia is a symptom of his condition. Do you understand? So that we can figure out how to treat him.


DEAN
Well, all I can say is that the sleep thing is – is kind of new.


DR KADINSKY
Right. Well... we've pumped him about as full of sedatives as we safely can. So far, he won't go under. I've never seen anything like it.


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 hallway.


CUT TO: SAM’s hospital room. HALLUCIFER is sitting on a desk, playing with a piece of string. SAM is on the bed, dressed in a white T-shirt and white hospital pants.


HALLUCIFER
I'm just sayin'. Back when you had no soul...


DR KADINSY and DEAN appear at the door.


HALLUCIFER
...you never had to sleep.


DEAN enters the room.


HALLUCIFER
Ah, Mr. Helpless. Pull up a six-pack, buddy.


DEAN
How are you feeling?


SAM
Maybe you should cancel my UFC fight.


HALLUCIFER
Yeah. Keep that sense of humor, Sam. It'll get you through this.


DEAN sits down on the end of SAM’s bed.


DEAN
Sam, I'm gonna find you help.


SAM exhales and looks away.


HALLUCIFER
Now, that sounded a little cynical.


SAM
I don't think it's out there, Dean.


DEAN
We don't know that.


SAM
We know better than most. It's all snake oil. Last faith healer we hooked up with had a reaper on a leash. Remember?


DEAN stands up.


DEAN
Yeah, Sam, I remember.


SAM
I'm just saying...


DEAN
What? That you don't want my help?


SAM
No, I'm just saying… don't do this to yourself.


DEAN
Sam, if I don't find something –


SAM
Then I'll die.


HALLUCIFER
Oh, you're upsetting me.


SAM
Dean, we knew this was coming.


DEAN
No.


SAM
When you put my soul back.


DEAN
No.


SAM
Cas warned you about all the crap it would –


DEAN
Screw Cas! Quit being Dalai frickin' Yoda about this, okay? [punches his hand with his fist] Get pissed!


SAM
[sighs] I'm too tired. This is what happens when you throw a soul into Lucifer's dog bowl. And you think there's just gonna be some cure out there?


SAM looks at DEAN sadly. DEAN nods and bites his lip.


HALLUCIFER
Oh, you guys are having a moment.


DEAN leaves the room.


INT. – HOUSE – DAY


DEAN is looking through a journal and talking on the phone.


DEAN (on phone)
I'm a friend of Bobby Singer's. I'm looking for some info. If you could, uh, call me back. 785-555-0128. Thanks.


He hangs up and crosses a name off a list.


INT. – HOSPITAL – DAY


The NURSE is taking SAM’s blood pressure and temperature as HALLUCIFER looks on.


INT. – HOUSE – DAY


DEAN (on phone)
[sarcastically] I am so sorry to have bothered you.


DEAN crosses another name off his list. Eight names are now crossed off.


INT. – HOSPITAL – DAY


HALLUCIFER is reading from a large book. SAM is sitting on the edge of the bed, facing away from HALLUCIFER.


HALLUCIFER
Narcissistic personality disorder. Okay, now, this one I could have.


The NURSE enters.


NURSE
Time for meds, Sam.


HALLUCIFER
Sets unrealistic goals. Check. But trouble keeping healthy relationships? Not so sure about that one. Thoughts?


INT. – HOUSE – DAY


DEAN (on phone)
Yeah. Thanks.


DEAN hangs up, crosses out another name, closes the journal and picks up a smaller journal. He tosses the smaller journal onto a table as he walks to the refrigerator. As he is taking out a can, the journal falls to the ground. DEAN picks it up. A business card for Mackey’s Taxidermy has fallen out. On the back is a cell phone number.


DEAN (on phone)
Yeah, hi. Uh... my name's Dean. I'm a friend of Bobby Singer's. I'm, uh, looking for some info. If you could call me back at 785-555-0128. Thanks.


DEAN hangs up.


INT. – HOSPITAL – DAY


SAM is sitting on the edge of his bed with his eyes closed. DR KADINSKY enters.


DR KADINSKY
Sam, how are we feeling today? Rib pain – scale of 1 to 10?


SAM
It's – it's not bad. Um [clears throat] Three.


DR KADINSKY
You don't have to lie, Sam.


SAM
I'm – I'm not.


DR KADINSKY
You've suffered terrible agony. I mean, your 10 must be astronomical.


SAM
Yeah. I-I guess I have a high threshold.


DR KADINSKY
Yeah. But the worst is knowing that there's always a new 10.


SAM
What are you talking about?


DR KADINSKY
Well, I'm talking about the truly elegant torture I have prepared for you today…


DR KADINSKY morphs into HALLUCIFER.


HALLUCIFER
…Sam.


SAM gets up and turns away from HALLUCIFER.


SAM
Just stay the hell away from me.


HALLUCIFER
But it's – it's so nice chatting. Sam, I hate these one-sided conversations. Come on, buddy. [raises fists] Engage. Sam? You... me... locked ward. Is it me, or is this just like the Cage?


EXT. – HOSPITAL – NIGHT


INT. – HOSPITAL – NIGHT


SAM is sitting on the bed, yawning. An orderly brings in a tray. SAM picks up a plate holding a sandwich and sits down on the bed again. He takes a bite, then looks down at the sandwich and sees that it is crawling with maggots. He drops the sandwich to the floor and moves further up the bed. A GIRL wearing white hospital clothes with a bandage on her neck is watching from the doorway.


INT. – HOUSE – NIGHT


DEAN is doing a search on the laptop. He brings up the “Amazing Grace Helping Friends” website. His phone rings. The scene alternates between DEAN in the house and MACKEY standing next to his truck.


DEAN
This is Dean.


MACKEY
Mackey. Calling you back. Hey. Real sorry about Bobby.


DEAN
Yeah, me too.


MACKEY
Look, what you called about – I might have something for you. There's this guy. He goes by "Emanuel." He kind of roams. First started hearing about him a couple of months back. How he was healing the sick, curing the crazy.


DEAN
Uh-huh.


MACKEY
Naturally, I think something in the milk ain't clean. Find this sucker, punch his clock. Right?


DEAN
Right.


MACKEY
Heard the best way to get to him is through his wife, Daphne, out in Colorado? So, I go. Tell her I'm going blind. It's true. My right eye's burnt out. She says, "Go home. He'll come." So, I go. I set every trap, every test in the book.


DEAN
That's what I would have done.


MACKEY
Emanuel shows. He passes every one. There ain't nothing weird about this guy. Except... he's the real deal.


DEAN
What do you mean?


MACKEY
He touched me, and my eye was fixed. Look – I don't believe in much that don't suck your blood. But I wouldn't call you on a maybe.


INT. – HOSPITAL – NIGHT


SAM is sitting on the edge of his bed, covering his ears and facing away from HALLUCIFER, who is talking through a loudspeaker.


HALLUCIFER
"Oh, my head hurts. Make it stop!"


GIRL
Hello?

The GIRL who watched SAM from the doorway earlier is standing in the room. She holds out a chocolate bar to SAM.


GIRL
You want this or not? I saw you yesterday.


SAM takes the chocolate bar.


GIRL
You didn't look too happy with your in-flight meal.


SAM
Thanks. Uh...


GIRL
Marin. No problem. Sam. Right?


The loudspeaker blares and SAM winces.


HALLUCIFER
"I'm Sam."


SAM covers his face and MARIN leaves.


HALLUCIFER
"Hello, Sam. Hi."


EXT. – HOUSE – DAY


DEAN walks up the stairs to the front door and knocks. A MAN opens the door.


DEAN
Hi. Uh, is this, uh, Daphne Allen's house? I'm looking for Emanuel.


MAN
Well, you found him. Daphne's resting. If you don't mind.


DEAN
Oh, yeah, sure.


EMANUEL steps outside and closes the door.


DEAN
Um… So, I was hoping, uh…


Through the window, DEAN sees a WOMAN who is bound to a chair and gagged. He looks back at EMANUEL, whose eyes turn black: he is a DEMON. The DEMON grabs DEAN and throws him against the door.


DEMON
You were saying, Dean?


DEAN
You know, I'd think twice. Or don't you know that your boss issued a hands-off memo?


DEMON
[laughs] Please. What have you done for him lately? Roman's head on a plate? No? Whatever Emanuel is, Crowley's gonna want him – a lot more than he wants you these days. So...


The DEMON starts towards DEAN, who stabs it with his knife. The DEMON yells and light flashes from his eyes and mouth as it dies. DEAN pushes the DEMON down the stairs as he withdraws his knife. A man is standing at the bottom of the stairs. DEAN stares: it is the body of Jimmy Novak, CASTIEL’s former vessel.


EMANUEL/CASTIEL
What was that?
