Devin burns Kevin's body on the traditional hunter's funeral pyre. He calls Castiel, who arrives dressed again in a suit and trenchcoat. A stricken Dean explains about Gadreel's possession of Sam, and Kevin's death. Dean knows he needs to kill Gadreel, but not how to do it without killing Sam. Castiel suggests there is a way to bypass the angel's mind and get to Sam - but they will need Crowley's help.

Gadreel is backstage at a rock concert. The pop idol Corey is actually possessed by the angel Thaddeus who tortured Gadreel and another angel called Abner while they were imprisoned in Heaven. Gadreel kills him with an angel sword.

At the bunker, Dean and Castiel approach Crowley. Despite not wanting to bargain, Dean sees no alternative and agrees to take Crowley to visit someone in return for his assistance.

Gadreel meets with Metatron in a br, where coincidentally the man who was his original vessel works. He reports that he killed Kevin, and Thaddeus, and Metatron gives him his next target. Gadreel is reluctant but Mteatron says he demands it as a test of loyalty.

(plays over Dean's opening montage)


Cecily: I mean human Castiel - meh. But feathered Castiel - phwoar!
Crowley: Your phallus on wheels just ran a red light in Somerset, Pennsylvania ten minutes ago.
Gadreel: I have Sam locked away in a dream right now. As far as he's concerned you're working a case. Something to do with ghouls and cheerleaders.
Dean: So you saying we're both a couple of dumbasses?
Castiel: I prefer the word trusting. Less dumb. Less ass.
Dean: This doesn't make us square. I see you again...
Crowley: I'm dead. Yes, I know. I love you too.
Crowley: The demons have a choice. Take orders from the world's angriest ginger, and that's saying something. Or join my team where everyone gets a say, a virgin, and all the entrails they can eat.
Dean: Alright, let me hear it.

Sam: What do you want me to say? I’m pissed? Okay I am, I’m pissed. You lied to me - again.
Dean: I didn't have a choice.
Sam: I was ready to die Dean.
Dean: I know. But I wouldn't let you, because that’s not in me.
Sam: So what, you decide to trick me into being possessed by some...psycho angel?
Dean: He saved your life.
Sam: So what. I was willing to die. And now...Kevin.
Dean: No, that is not on you. Kevin’s blood is on my hands. And that ain’t ever getting clean. I’ll burn for that. I will. But I’ll find Gadreel and I will end that son of a bitch. But I’ll do it alone.
Sam: What’s that supposed to mean?
Dean: Come on man, can’t you see, I’m poison. People get close to me they get killed, or worse. I tell myself I help more people than I hurt and I tell myself that I’m doing it all for the right reasons and I believe that. But I can’t -- I won’t drag anyone anybody into the muck with me - not anymore.
Sam: Go. I’m not going to stop you. But don’t go thinking that’s the problem because it’s not.
Dean: What’s that supposed to mean?

Sam: Just go.
