As they are leaving, he gives Sam the clapp. The three of them argue about Sam playing the witch. Bobby wants to do it. Sam insists there has to be another way. Patrick’s partner, Lia, shows up and gives them a reversal spell.

With no other options, Dean and Bobby go to work on the spell while Sam goes to play poker. He gets DNA from Patrick, but it turns out to be fake. Patrick starts to strangle Sam, but Lia stops him and tells him that she gave the Winchesters the spell.
