Notable Plot Moments:
Bobby is still in the wheelchair and very cranky about it. Castiel calls the brothers on a cell phone. He then tells Bobby that he is cut off from heaven and can’t heal him. Needless to say, Bobby is pissed off. Castiel then tells Dean that his plan to defeat Lucifer is terrible and they will lose. He suggests they find god to help them. Dean doesn’t react well.
Rufus calls Bobby from Colorado to tell him the town is over run with demons and he needs help. The brothers go to Colorado and find the only road into town, a bridge, is broken so there is no way in or out by car.
The whole town is empty, and then they run into Ellen, who immediately pulls a gun on them in case they are demons. She takes them back to a safe house where the remaining members of the town are staying. She also tells them that Jo is missing.
Dean says they will go get ammunition and look for Jo and Rufus. As they are leaving, Dean strongly suggests that Sam stay. Sam realizes that Dean doesn’t want him to go where he will be around demons. He insists on going.
Sam and Ellen find Jo and Rufus. They are possessed by demons. Ellen is able to escape, but Sam is caught.
Ellen and Dean find out about a shooting star and a polluted river that match a passage from Revelations that precedes the arrival of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The first one is War, who rides a red horse. Dean remembers a red car. They figure out that there aren’t any demons at all, just people thinking everyone else is a demon. War is one of the men from the safe house named Roger. He uses his ring to make people appear to be demons. When Dean argues with him that there are no demons, he uses the ring to make Dean and Jo appear as demons, forcing them to run.
The people from the safe house all leave in search of Dean and Ellen, thinking they may have been demons the entire time. Dean and Ellen show up at the house and convince Jo and Rufus of what’s going on, but the people from the safe house are already attacking.
After figuring out that War’s power comes from the ring, Sam and Dean cut his finger off, waking everyone up from their hallucinatory state.
Castiel tells them he needs an amulet that lights up in the presence of god. Bobby says they have anything like that, but Castiel indicates Dean’s pendant from Sam.
After killing two demons, Sam has a real recovering addict moment as he looks at the demon blood and looks like he’s considering licking it.
When Dean gives Castiel the pendant, he tells Castiel quite firmly not to lose it. He still cares that it was a gift from Sam.
Throughout the episode, Dean has reservations about Sam doing anything demon related on his own. At the end of the episode, Sam realizes he still has a problem and suggests they go their separate ways. Dean agrees that would be for the best. Super depressing closing scene.
When she first sees them, Ellen throws a glass of holy water in Dean’s face to make sure he isn’t a demon.
