6.22 The Man Who Knew Too Much
Dr. Eleanor Visyak is a creature from Purgatory who is over 900 years old (and therefore not a leviathan, as they are much older). She was released from there on March 10, 1937 by a spell performed by H.P. Lovecraft. She possessed the body of his maid, Eleanor, who had a 9-year-old son (Westborough). She has been living as a professor of medieval studies at San Francisco University. She has a romantic past with Bobby Singer.
At Bobby's suggestion, Dean visits Dr. Visyak to gain information about dragons and how to kill them. She has a dragon killing sword - the Sword of Bruncvik (or Braunschweig) - in her basement, which is stuck in a large rock. Dean extracts it using plastic explosives, breaking the sword in the process.
While visiting Westborough who saw his mother Eleanor possessed by a creature from Purgatory in 1937, Bobby sees a photo of the woman and realizes that it is the woman he knows as Eleanor Visyak. He finds her in a cabin - one of her 'safe houses' - and tells her he knows who she really is. She confirms his suspicions, but denies that she killed H.P. Lovecraft. Bobby warns her that Castiel is looking for her, and asks for the information about how to open a door to Purgatory. She refuses to tell him, and also rejects his offer of protection. As she leaves the cabin, Castiel appears and takes her.
Bobby, Sam and Dean find Eleanor in an alley, fatally wounded. She tells them she was tortured by Crowley and then Castiel, and that she finally revealed the spell to access to Purgatory, which involves the blood of a virgin, the blood of a creature from Purgatory which are used to draw a collection of sigils. A spell is then recited. Eleanor dies before she can reveal where Crowley and Castiel are.
