Teaser

INT. HOSPITAL - DAY

A young girl is sitting in a hospital bed in a contemplative way like she's listening some distant whispering.

PSYCHOLOGIST

Anna? Do you know where you are? You're at the Connor Beverly Behavioral Medicine Center. [ Anna looks at her hospital's wristband ]Do you know why you're here? [ Anna shrugs ]Do you remember what you did? [ Anna nods ]You were hysterical. It took four people to restrain you.

Anna: I was trying to warn them.

PSYCHOLOGIST

Warn who?

Anna: Everyone. Forget it. It was stupid.

PSYCHOLOGIST

What were you trying to warn them about?

Anna: Look... I get it. You think I'm nuts. If I were you, I'd think I was nuts. But it's all true.

PSYCHOLOGIST

It's okay. You can tell me. I'm here to listen.

Anna: The end... is coming. The apocalypse.

PSYCHOLOGIST

The apocalypse. Like in the Bible?

Anna: Kind of. I mean, Same bottom line. This demon, Lilith, is trying to break the 66 seals to free Lucifer from Hell. Lucifer... Will bring the apocalypse. So... Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Anna turns her head and listens to a distant whispering.

PSYCHOLOGIST

Anna?

Anna: Sorry.

PSYCHOLOGIST

What were you doing?

Anna: Nothing. Just listening.

PSYCHOLOGIST

So, you were saying that there are, uh, 66 of these seals in the world?

Anna: No. No. There are about 600 possible seals, and Lilith only has to break 66 of them, and no one knows which 66 she's gonna break.

PSYCHOLOGIST

I see.

Anna: That's why it's nearly impossible to stop her. And that's why the angels are losing. That's why we're all gonna die.

An hospital attendant enters Anna's room.

ATTENDANT

Time for your meds, Anna. Anna?

Anna turns around and looks horrified when she notices the attendant.

ATTENDANT

What's the matter, sweetie?

Anna: Your face -- what happened to your face?

ATTENDANT

I know.

The ATTENDANT's eyes turn black, revealing he's possessed by a demon.

ATTENDANT

I'm downright kissable. Shh.

Anna uses her mind to push a chest of drawers against the ATTENDANT and knock him unconscious.

ACT ONE

INT. BAR

Sam appears to be drunk and is playing pool with a man from the bar.

Sam: Brian, come on, man, just one more. Just -- just give me a chance to win it back.

BRIAN

It's your cash.

Dean: Excuse me. My brother's a little sauced to be making bets.

BRIAN

He insisted.

Dean: Yeah, but you've already taken, what, two bills off him? I'm just saying.

Sam: Hey, shut up, Dean. I'm fine.

Dean: No, you're not fine. You're drunk!

Sam: Let's make it five hundred.

Dean: Five hundred?

BRIAN

Sure.

Sam puts the money down on the pool table.

BRIAN

Five hundred. Your break.

While BRIAN is looking down, Sam raises his eyebrows at Dean. For a second there's no trace of drunkenness. Dean raises his eyebrows at Sam. Sam breaks, sinking several balls, then sees Ruby across the bar.

Sam: Keep the money.

Sam puts his cue down on the pool table and walks towards Ruby.

Dean: Keep the money? What --

After a moment, Dean follows Sam.

Sam: Hey.

Dean: Well, you got a lot of nerve showing up anywhere near me.

Ruby: I just have some info, and then I'm gone.

Sam: What is it?

Ruby: I'm hearing a few whispers.

Dean: Ooh, great, demon whisperers -- that's reliable.

Ruby: Girl named Anna Milton escaped from a locked ward yesterday. The demons seem pretty keen on finding her. Apparently, some real heavy hitters turned out for the Easter-egg hunt.

Sam: Why? Who is she?

Ruby: No idea.

Ruby: But I'm thinking that she's important, 'cause the order is to capture her alive. I just figured that whatever the deal is, you might want to find this girl before the demons do.

Sam: Look, maybe we should check it out.

Dean: Actually, we're working a case, but thanks.

Ruby: What case?

Dean: Uh, we've got leads, big leads.

Ruby: Sounds dangerous.

Dean: Yeah, well, it sure ain't goose-chasing after some chick who, for all we know, doesn't even exist, just because you say she's important.

Ruby: I'm just delivering the news. You can do whatever you want with it. Far as I'm concerned, I told you, I'm done.

Sam: Wait, wait, wait. This hospital Anna escaped from -- it got a name?

EXT. Impala – NIGHT

Dean is driving and Sam is speaking on the phone.

Sam: Can I get a copy of the missing persons report? Great. Okay. Thanks.

Sam hangs up.

Sam: Well, Anna Milton's definitely real.

Dean: Don't mean the case is real. And this hospital's a three-day drive.

Sam: We've driven further for less, Dean. [ Dean shakes his head ]You got something to say, say it.

Dean: Oh, I'm saying it -- this sucks.

Sam: You're not pissed we're going after the girl. You're pissed Ruby threw us the tip.

Dean: Right. 'Cause as far as you're concerned, the hell-bitch is practically family. Yeah, boy, something major must've happened while I downstairs, 'cause I come back, and -- and you're BFF with a demon?

Sam: I told you, Dean, she helped me go after Lilith.

Dean: Well, thanks for the thumbnail -- real vivid. You want to fill in a little detail?

Sam: Sure, Dean, let's trade stories. You first. How was Hell? Don't spare the details.

Six Months Earlier

EXT. CROSSROAD - NIGHT

Sam is burying a box in a crossroad to summon a CROSSROAD Demon. He is drunk.

Sam: Come on! Where the hell are you?

CROSSROAD Demon

I was wondering whether to come or not. I mean, you shot one of my co-workers. Don't take this the wrong way, Sam, but you don't look so hot, buddy. I guess burying your brother didn't agree with you.

Sam: Well?

CROSSROAD Demon

Well, let's see that special little knife of yours first.

Sam takes out the knife and slams it down on an outdoor table.

Sam: No devil's traps, either. I'm not here to play games.

CROSSROAD Demon

Well, let me guess. You want to make a deal. And 'round and 'round the Winchesters go. I'm sorry, Sam. That's not gonna happen.

Sam stabs the knife into the CROSSROAD Demon's hand.

Sam: I don't want ten years. I don't want one year. I don't want candy! I want to trade places with Dean.

CROSSROAD Demon

No.

Sam: Just take me! It's a fair trade!

CROSSROAD Demon

No!

Sam: Why not? Lilith wants me dead. Just let Dean go, and she can have me.

CROSSROAD Demon

Don't you understand, Sam? It's not about your soul. Dean's in Hell, right where we want him. We've got everything exactly the way we want it. You want to kill me? Go ahead. I've made peace with my lord.

EXT. Impala - NIGHT

Back to present

INT. HOSPITAL - DAY

PSYCHOLOGIST

[ out of sign ]Of course I want to help however I can.

Sam: Now, the orderly has no recollection of Anna's escape?

PSYCHOLOGIST

Apparently, she knocked him unconscious. The blow caused some amnesia. He doesn't even remember coming into her room.

Dean: That's a hell of a right hook to knock out a guy that's got 80 pounds on her.

PSYCHOLOGIST

We think she may have planned this, waited behind the door.

Sam: Right. Uh, you mentioned Anna's illness was recent.

PSYCHOLOGIST

Two months ago, she was happy, well-adjusted, journalism major, lots of friends -- Bright future.

Dean: So, what happened -- she just... flipped?

PSYCHOLOGIST

Well, that's the tragedy of schizophrenia. Within weeks, Anna was overtaken by delusions.

Sam: What kind of delusions?

PSYCHOLOGIST

She thought demons were everywhere. [ Gives a sketch book to Sam ]

Dean: Interesting.

PSYCHOLOGIST

It's not uncommon for our patients to believe that monsters are real.

Dean: Well, that -- that's just batty.

Sam turns the pages and they see some meaningful sketches and the text 'Raising of the Witnesses' and in the next page 'samhain the next seal is broken'.

Dean: That's Revelations.

PSYCHOLOGIST

Since when does the Book of Revelations have jack-o'-lanterns?

Dean: It's a, uh, it's a little-known translation.

PSYCHOLOGIST

Well, Anna's father was a church deacon. When she became ill, her paranoia took on religious overtones. She was convinced the devil was about to rise up and end the world. I hope you find her. It's dangerous for her to be out there alone right now.

EXT. MILTON HOME - DAY

Dean knocks on the front door.

Dean: Maybe they're not home.

Sam: Both cars in the driveway.

Dean tries the door. It's unlocked and they enter the house.

INT. MILTON HOME - DAY

Dean: Mr. And Mrs. Milton?

Sam: We're from the Sheriff's department. We just wanted to ask you a couple of questions.

There are two dead bodies lying in the floor. Their throats have been cut.

ACT TWO

INT. MILTON HOME - DAY

Sam checks some powder on the floor near the dead bodies.

Sam: Sulfur. The demons beat us here. Whatever the deal is with this Anna girl --

Dean: Yeah, they want her. They're not screwing around. All right, so, I'm "Girl, Interrupted," [ Dean picks up some addressed envelopes ]and I know the score of the apocalypse, just busted out of the nut-box... Possibly using superpowers, by the way. Where do I go?

Sam looks at family photographs and picks one up.

Sam: Hey, you got those sketches from Anna's notebook?

Dean: Yeah.

Sam: Let me see 'em. Check this out. [ Sam picks out a drawing of a stained-glass window ]

Dean: She was drawing the window of her church.

Sam: Over and over. If you were religious, scared, and had demons on your ass, where would you go to feel safe?

EXT. CHURCH - DAY

The Impala is parked in front of the church. Through a window, two figures can be seen going upstairs.

INT. CHURCH's ATTIC - DAY

Sam and Dean enter the attic with their guns drawn.

Sam: Dean. [ Sam points with his gun towards a person hiding ]Anna? [ They put away their guns ]We're not gonna hurt you. We're here to help. My name is Sam. This is my brother, Dean.

Anna: Sam? Not Sam Winchester?

Sam: Uh, yeah.

Anna: And you're Dean. The Dean?

Dean: Well, yeah. The Dean, I guess.

Anna: It's really you. Oh, my god. The angels talk about you. You were in Hell, but Castiel pulled you out, and some of them think you can help save us. And some of them don't like you at all. They talk about you all the time lately. I feel like I know you.

Dean: So, you talk to angels?

Anna: Oh, no. No, no way. Um, they probably don't even know I exist. I just kind of... overhear them.

Sam: You overhear them?

Anna: Yeah, they talk, and sometimes I just... hear them in my head.

Dean: Like... right now?

Anna: Not right this second, but a lot. And I can't shut them out, there are so many of them.

Dean: So, they lock you up with a case of the crazies when really you were just... tuning in to angel radio?

Anna: Yes. Thank you.

Sam: Anna, when did the voices start? Do you remember?

Anna: I can tell you exactly -- September 18th.

Dean: The day I got out of Hell.

Anna: First words I heard, clear as a bell -- "Dean Winchester is saved."

Dean: What do you think?

Sam: It's above my pay grade, man.

Dean: Well, at least now we know why the demons want you so bad. They get a hold of you, they can hear everything the other side's cooking. You're 1-900-angel.

Anna: Hey, um, do you know -- are my parents okay? I -- I didn't go home. I was afraid.

Ruby enters into the attic in a rush.

Ruby: You got the girl. Good, let's go.

Anna: Her face!

Sam: It's okay. She's here to help.

Dean: Yeah, don't be so sure.

Ruby: We have to hurry.

Dean: Why?

Ruby: Because a demon's coming -- big-timer. We can fight later, Dean.

Dean: Well, that's pretty convenient -- showing up right when we find the girl with some bigwig on your tail?

Ruby: I didn't bring him here. You did.

Dean: What?

Ruby: He followed you from the girl's house. We got to go now.

Sam: Dean.

Sam points to a statue that's bleeding from the eyes.

Ruby: It's too late. He's here.

Sam takes Anna by the arm and hides her in a closet.

Sam: Okay. Stay in there. Don't move.

Anna: Okay.

Sam takes out a flask of holy water.

Ruby: No, Sam, you got to pull him right away.

Dean: Whoa, hold on a sec.

Ruby: Now's not the time to bellyache about Sam going darkside. He does his thing, he exorcises that demon, or we die.

Sam puts the flask away again. The demon enters and Sam tries to exorcise him, but it doesn't work.

ALASTAIR

That tickles. You don't have the juice to take me on, Sam.

ALASTAIR throws Sam downstairs. Dean attacks him with Ruby's knife, but ALASTAIR wins their fight.

ALASTAIR

Hello again, Dean.

Anna screams as Ruby pulls her from the closet.

ALASTAIR

Come on, Dean. Don't you recognize me? Oh, I forgot -- I'm wearing a pediatrician. But we were so close... in Hell.

Dean: Alastair.

Sam stabs ALASTAIR with Ruby's knife.

ALASTAIR

You're gonna have to try a whole lot harder than that, son.

Sam grabs Dean and they look at a large stained-glass window. As ALASTAIR pulls out the knife, Sam and Dean jump through the window.

INT. MOTEL ROOM

Sam is sewing a cut in his left arm while Dean is in the bathroom.

Dean: Are you almost done?

Sam: I'm going as fast as I can.

Dean: Good, 'cause you know I got a dislocated shoulder over here.

Dean picks up a whiskey bottle and drinks from it.

Sam: Yeah. I'll pop it back when I'm finished.

Sam: Gimme that.

Sam gestures for the bottle and pours whiskey over his wound.

Dean: So, you lost the magic knife, huh?

Sam: Yeah, saving your ass. Who the hell was that demon?

Dean: No one good. We got to find Anna.

Sam: Ruby's got her. I'm sure she's okay. All right. Come on. On three. One...

Sam forces Dean's shoulder back into place.

Dean: You sure about Ruby? 'Cause I think it's just as likely she used us to find radio girl and then brought that demon in to kill us.

Sam: No, she took Anna to keep her safe.

Dean: Yeah. Well, why hasn't she called to tell us where she is?

Sam: Because that demon is probably watching us right now, waiting to follow us right back to Anna again. That's why he let us go.

Dean: You call this letting us go?

Sam: Yeah, I do. Look, killing us would've been no problem to that thing. That's why, for now, we just got to lay low and wait for Ruby to contact us.

Dean: How's she gonna do that? [ pause ]Why do you trust her so much?

Sam: I told you.

Dean: You got to do better than that. Hey, and I'm not trying to pick a fight here. I mean, I really want to understand. But I need to know more. I mean, I deserve to know more.

Sam: Because... she saved my life.

Six Months Earlier

INT. MOTEL ROOM - NIGHT

Sam is drunk, and after he enters the room a man and a women attack him. The woman takes Ruby's knife.

Woman: Thanks for keeping this warm for me, Sam.

Sam: Ruby.

Ruby: It's nice to be back. Where I was, even for Hell, it was nasty. I guess I really pissed Lilith off. Imagine my relief when she gave me one last chance to take it topside. And all I had to do was find you and kill you.

Sam: Fine. Go ahead! Do it.

Ruby stabs the other demon instead of Sam.

Ruby: Grab your keys. We got to go. Now!


ACT THREE

Six Months Earlier

INT. Impala - NIGHT

Ruby: You know what sounds good? French fries. I'm starving. I just escaped Hell. I deserve a treat. You know, a "thank you" would be nice.

Sam: Who asked for your help?

Ruby: You have no idea what I've been through. When Lilith gets pissed, she gets creative. You want to hear about the corners of Hell I've seen, Sam?

Sam: No, I don't.

Ruby: And the things I had to do to convince her I was sorry? That I could be trusted?

Sam: Well, this'll definitely get you a fat Christmas bonus.

Ruby: Very funny. I'm a fugitive... For you, Sam. I took all of this risk to get back to you, so, yeah, I deserve a damn "thank you."

Sam: Who asked you to save me?

Ruby: I'm just trying to help.

Sam: Can you help me save Dean?

Ruby: No. Nothing I know of is powerful enough to do that.

Sam stops the car by the roadside.

Sam: Then I have no use for you.

Ruby: What?

Sam: Get out.

Ruby: Sam: Sam: Whose body are you riding, Ruby?

Ruby: What do you care? You've never asked me that before.

Sam: I'm asking now.

Ruby: Some secretary.

Sam: Let her go.

Ruby: Sam...

Sam: Or I send you right back to Hell.

INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - NIGHT

A woman lies in coma on an hospital bed with the name "Doe, Jane" on it.

Doctor: All right, pull it.

The machine begins to beep as the woman dies, but she sits up as she is possessed.

Ruby: Who do I have to kill to get some French fries around here?

INT. ABANDONED HOUSE - DAY

Sam is cleaning a gun. Someone knocks on the door. Sam grabs a shotgun and opens the door, revealing Ruby possessing the coma girl. She holds up a piece of paper.

Ruby: Proof. This body is 100% socially conscious. I recycle. Al Gore would be proud.

Sam: You grabbed a coma patient?

Ruby: You didn't want me to take a body with someone in it, and I made sure that the spirit was gone. Apartment was empty. You happy?

Sam: Why are you here?

Ruby: I can't bring Dean back. But I can get you something else that you want.

Sam: And, uh... what's that?

Ruby: Lilith.

Sam: You want me to use my psychic whatever.

Ruby: Look, I know that it spooks you --

Sam: Skip the speech. I'm ready. Let's go.

Ruby: Slow down there, cowboy.

Sam: Just tell me what I have to do.

Ruby: Look, Lilith is one scary bitch. When I was in the Pit, there was talk. She's cooking up something big -- apocalyptic big.

Sam: So let's kill her.

Ruby: You want to go in there and half-ass it like before? We have the time to get it right. Let's get it right.

Sam: Okay. What do you want from me?

Ruby: Well, a little patience... and sobriety. Promise me that... and I will teach you everything I know.

INT. MOTEL ROOM - NIGHT

We are back to the present.

Dean: So? What'd she teach you?

Sam: Well, the first thing I learned... I'm a crappy student.

INT. ABANDONED HOUSE - DAY

Sam is trying to exorcise a demon tied to a chair in a devil's trap, but can't. Some black smoke comes out of the demon's mouth, but then it goes back in. Sam holds his head in pain. As the demon begins to laugh, Ruby kills him with her knife.

Ruby: Not funny.

Ruby: Just give it time, Sam. It'll get better.

Sam: What? I need more practice?

Ruby: I'm not talking about pulling demons. I know losing Dean was --

Sam: Hey! I don't want to talk about it. You know what? Where do you get off slapping me with that greeting-card, time-heals crap? What the hell do you know?

Ruby: I used to be human. And I still remember what it feels like to lose someone. I'm sorry.

Ruby puts a hand on Sam's shoulder.

Sam: Uhn-huh. Don't. I can't.

Ruby: Sam, you're not alone.

Ruby kisses Sam. He stands up and walks away from her.

Sam: What are you doing?

Ruby: Sam, it's okay!

Sam: No, that is anything but okay!

Ruby: What's wrong?

Sam: What's wrong? Where do I start?

Ruby: Is it because of the body? Because I told you -- it's all me inside of here. There is no one else. And it's nice inside this body, Sam. Soft and warm.

Sam: What are you doing?

Ruby: Isn't it 'cause you're really scared to go there with a demon? Because it's wrong and it's bad and we shouldn't?

Ruby and Sam begin to have s*x.

INT. MOTEL ROOM - NIGHT

We are back to the present.

Dean: Sam?

Sam: Yeah?

Dean: Too much information.

Sam: Hey, I told you I was coming clean.

Dean: Yeah, but now I feel dirty. Okay, well, uh, brain-stabbing imagery aside... So far, all you've told me about is a manipulative bitch who, uh, screwed you, played mind games with you, and did everything in the book to get you to go bad.

Sam: Yeah, well, there's more to the story.

Dean: Just... skip the nudity, please.

Sam: Pretty soon after... that, um... I put together some signs... Omens.

Dean: Saying what?

Sam: Lilith was in town. And I wanted to strike her first.

Five Months Earlier

INT. ABANDONED HOUSE - DAY

Ruby: You're not ready yet.

Sam: It's now or never.

Ruby: No, we got to wait until you get it right. You haven't been too successful.

Sam: All right, I'll use this.

Ruby: Stop. You can't just fly in there reckless, Sam. We need you to take the bitch out.

Sam: Oh, I'll take her out all right.

Ruby: You get one shot, and you're it. You're the only one who can do it, Sam. So if she kills you first...

Sam: What?

Ruby: You don't want to survive this.

Sam: Come on.

Ruby: It's a kamikaze attack. You want to die fighting Lilith.

Sam: That's stupid.

Ruby: No, it's the truth, because if you kill her and you survive this, then you have to go on without your brother! This isn't what Dean would've wanted. This isn't what he died for.

Ruby try to stop him, getting in his way in front of the door.

Sam: Get out of my way.

Ruby: No, Sam. This is suicide!

Sam puts Ruby aside with her knife on her throat and walks out through the door.

ACT FOUR

Five Months Earlier

EXT. SUBURBAN HOUSE - DAY

Sam sees a little girl in a house, who is sitting in a table full of cakes and candies.

INT. SUBURBAN HOUSE - DAY

Sam sneaks into the house with Ruby's knife ready to kill the Lilith.

Girl: Please, I want to go home.

Two demons attack Sam from behind and Sam loses the knife.

Demon: Lilith sends her regrets. She couldn't make it.

Ruby takes the knife from the floor and kills one of the demons.

Ruby: Take the girl and run!

The Demon beats Ruby and she loses the knife.

Demon: Ruby, you're in so much trouble. When we get you down in the basement -- the things we're gonna do to you.

Sam comes back and exorcises the Demon with his mind.

Ruby: Sam.

Sam: I'm okay. Thanks.

INT. MOTEL ROOM - NIGHT

We are back to the present.

Sam: Ruby came back for me. Whatever you have to say, she saved me. More than that, she got through to me. What she said to me... It's what you would've said. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be here.

Maid: Housekeeping.

Dean: Not now!

Maid: Sir, I've got clean towels.

Dean opens the door and the MAID enters.

Dean: Couldn't you just leave 'em at the door?

Maid: I'm at this address.

Sam: I'm sorry. What?

Maid: Go now. Go through the bathroom window, don't stop, don't take your car, don't pass go. There are demons in the hallway and in the parking lot.

Sam: Ruby?

Maid: Okay, yes, so I'm possessing this maid for a hot minute. Sue me.

Sam: What about --

Maid: Coma girl? Slowly rotting on the floor back at the cabin with Anna, so I've got to hurry back. See you when you get there. Go!

INT. CABIN - NIGHT

Ruby: Glad you could make it.

Sam: Yeah, thanks.

Sam: Anna, are you okay?

Anna: Yeah. I think so. Ruby's not like other demons. She saved my life.

Dean: Yeah, I hear she does that. I guess I... You know.

Ruby: What?

Dean: I guess I owe you for... Sam. And I just wanted... you know...

Ruby: Don't strain yourself.

Dean: Okay, then. Is the moment over? [ Ruby nods ]Good, 'cause that was awkward.

Anna: Hey, Sam, you think it'd be safe to make a quick call, just to tell my parents I'm okay? They must be completely freaked.

Sam: Uh...

Anna: What?

Sam: Anna, um... Your parents...

Anna: What about them?

Sam: Look, I'm sorry.

Anna: No, they're not...

Sam: Anna, I'm sorry.

Anna: Why is this happening to me?

Sam: I don't know.

Anna: They're coming.

Dean: Back room.

Sam takes Anna to the back room, then comes back.

Ruby: Where's the knife?

Dean: Uh... about that...

Ruby: You're kidding.

Dean: Hey, don't look at me.

Sam: Thanks a lot.

Ruby: Great. Just peachy. Impeccable timing, guys, really.

The door rattles violently and bursts open.

ACT FIVE

INT. CABIN - NIGHT

Castiel and URIEL enter.

Dean: Please tell me you're here to help. We've been having demon issues all day.

URIEL

Well, I can see that. You want to explain why you have that stain in the room?

Castiel: We're here for Anna.

Dean: Here for her like... here for her?

URIEL

Stop talking. Give her to us.

Sam: Are you gonna help her?

Castiel: No, she has to die.

TO BE CONTINUED...
