Sam and Dean are running from demons when they are cornered. Suddenly, a bunch of hunters show up and exorcise them. They bring the brothers back to their town, which is full of hunters. It turns out that the preachers daughter, Leah, gets visions from the angels.

A group of them go to the house to kill the demons. A teenage boy, Dylan, stays behind with Sam and Dean after they finish killing the demons in the house. They missed one, though, and it pulls Dylan under the car and kills him before Dean can kill her first.

During Dylan’s funeral, Leah gets a vision and tells everyone that they will see Dylan again on Judgment Day. They have been chosen to have paradise on Earth. They just have to follow the angels commandments. One of the hunters, Paul, looks skeptical in the audience.

Dean goes to see Leah and see if she’s for real. She knows a lot about the brothers that she couldn’t know, including that they have the symbols on their ribs and that Dean is the vessel for Michael.

Sam comes back into their motel room after drinking with Paul and tells Dean about all the new rules, such as curfew and that all the cell towers have been shut down. Dean goes out for a walk and Sam calls Castiel, who shows up drunk. He tells Sam that Leah isn’t a prophet.

Meanwhile, Leah told the town that everyone isn’t following the angels rules, and a bunch of people try to run Paul out of town. When he won’t go, a woman shoots him. When Dean gets back to the motel, Castiel tells them it’s starting. Leah is the Whore of Babylon, a demon that rises and takes on human form. The real Leah probably died months ago. Castiel has a stake that can kill Leah, but it can only be used by a real servant of heaven, not Castiel or Dean, but someone else.

They tell the preacher about everything that has happened and give him the stake to kill the Whore. Meanwhile, the town has started burning people alive. Sam stops the people from actually lighting the fire and Dean ends up staking the Whore when she tries to strangle him. It works and kills her.

Sam notices that Dean was able to kill her and asks Dean if he plans on doing something really stupid, “like Michael stupid”. Dean tells him no and after getting Castiel and the preacher back to the motel room, Dean drives away, leaving Sam behind.

Dean goes to see Lisa before he agrees to being the vessel.

Character Development:

Sam is upset that Dean seems like he just doesn’t care about what’s happening. Dean used to be the one with the passion for the fight, but now it seems like all the fight has run out of him.

Dean feels like he has run out of options, and makes the decisions to be the vessel after all. He feels like it gives him a bargaining chip to protect Lisa and her son.
