Leaving home or headed home?

I, um... I came here to...
to bury a friend.

Yeah, I don't... I don't really
know where I belong anymore.

Give the schedule a look-see

Yeah. Thank you.

We're not supposed to meddle

You always said

I might as well be smart about it.

Yeah, that does sound about like me.

We're not even supposed to be here.

Come on, the letter was meant for him.

I just, uh, you know, gave it a nudge.

You keep an eye on things here.

I'm gonna get the damn cavalry.

I got no freaking idea.

One last hunt, huh?

One last hunt.

- Mary?

- What the hell is this?

It's good to see you, too, Dad.

So you're not going to KSU.
Does that mean...

No, I'm still leaving Hunting.

I just don't know if college
is what's next for me.

Well, before college
came into the picture,

you said you might leave town
when you finish hunting.

- Does that mean...
- No, it means what I just said.

I don't know what's next for me.


You're back, so that means
you clearly found something.


I got a lead on the guy
the Akrida are afraid of.

There's a Hunter named Joan

who says she spotted him weeks ago.

She knows where he is now.

I'm gonna meet her this
afternoon and get the details.

She was on the wire,
but I don't know her.

- So when do we meet her?

What does John think about this?

You haven't told him yet.

You're not the only one who's
been busy finding ways

to take out the Akrida.

And ours comes with the catch.

The catch is the crystal
only works once, so...

one chance to save the world.

Well, at least we got a sh*t.

If this works...

Mary's out of the game, isn't she?

What does that mean for the two of you?

Well, whoever this guy is,
he is ruggedly handsome.

He's not of this Earth
is all that matters, Carlos.

So any w*apon not of this
Earth can take out the Akrida.

Yes, which means
ruggedly handsome over here

can take out the Queen.

Finding him can't come soon enough.

Now that the planets have aligned,

the Akrida can open
the portal at any moment.


Death is imminent.

And what happens
if we can't find this guy?

Then that crystal is our only sh*t.

My family line ended

But you're not here to

You're here to talk about

His hands were tied.

I can assure you that he's not

What do you mean?

Well, there's this portal.

You see... I'm sure you've heard of it.

It's not quite up to code yet,

Who the hell are you?

Joan Hopkins, born June , .

I'm sorry... was that
a before the ?

The Hopkins family were hunting

- even before the Campbells.
- So what happened to her?

According to this, she
wanted out of Hunting,

so she turned on her own kind.

I lost my parents, my brother...

all my family to the cause.

And then...

I lost my William.

And no matter how hard I fought,

there was always another monster,

another death...

another apocalypse.

So you decided if you
couldn't b*at the monsters,

- you'd join them.
- No.

What I decided was that the monsters

weren't the problem, kid.

Mankind is the problem.

They always need saving.

And Hunters are the ones
who end up paying the price

with our lives.

And then what do these rescued humans do

with their precious
second chance at life?

They waste it...

k*ll each other, b*at each other down,

destroy our planet.

Monsters have it right.

Humans are nothing more than food.

Is that you talking?

Or is it the monster essence
that's powering you?

"The monster essence drove her mad.

She became so obsessed with making sure

that Hunters were protected,

and she believed the only way to do that

was to wipe out everyone
who needed saving".

- My God.
- "With no way to k*ll her,

Hunters teamed up
with the Men of Letters

and banished her from our world".

And that's all that's in here.

So how do the Akrida fit into all this?

And I could go on and on about...

how those magical little bugs
came into and changed my life.

But I think...

I think it'd be better
if I just showed you.

- Shh, shh, shh.

It's okay. It's okay.

Shh. It's okay.

Say good night, Lata.


All right, Lata is trapped
with the Queen.

We have to help her.

Yeah, but Joan is bunkered
down, and we're outnumbered.

Not to mention that spell
could cost you your soul.

The Queen is about
to sing her swan song.

We can't rewind this tape here.


What if we could rewind the tape?

Metaphysically speaking,
if you know what I mean.

On behalf of everyone,
I think I can assure you

when I say that we do not
know what you mean.

Okay, look... look, just bear
with me one second.

Now, was this idea inspired
by a drug-induced trip

I took a few years ago? Yes.

Are we judging me for that right now?

If it can keep Ada's soul
intact, absolutely not.

Thank you.

Now, when we used the Ostium,

it pushed the Akrida
out of this world, right?

Right. We used the rock
from the Akrida's world

to send them back to where they belong.

Okay, so the rock acted
as directions for the Ostium...

no, a one-way ticket out of here.

So what if there's
a one-way ticket back here?

I mean, the mystery man
we're looking for

is clearly not from this Earth,
which means neither...

Is this.

The journal is personal.
It's clearly connected.

Okay, but how do we reverse
the polarity of the Ostium?

Find my dad's lore on the Ostium
and bring it to Millie's.

Let's go to the clubhouse

How's it going in there?

- So much knowledge...
- Yeah.

How many Campbells and
Winchesters have to die?

The Men of Letters...

they thought they were ridding
the world of Joan,

so they cast her out to another planet,

and in doing so, they sent her to us...

and she gave us salvation.

What are you talking about?

The Akrida were made by an angry god.

Anything ever bested him,
he had us as a fail-safe.

We were designed to wipe out
all life in every universe.

she gave us meaning.

I have good news and bad news
in that department.

I feel like we could use the good news.

- I know how to hurt the Queen.
- And the bad news?

The Queen has all of her strength back.

She'll have the portal
completely opened by tonight.

Well, we know where
the portal is at least.

Your dad called...
he found a bunch of Akrida

down by what's left
of the warehouses on Prairie.

Please tell me you guys

found something
about how to use the Ostium.

Well, whatever you feed it

creates a portal
connected to that object.

So we fed it the rock, and it
was able to sh**t the Akrida

back to their world.

So, if we feed it the journal

and trace the sigils in reverse,

the Ostium can bring here

whatever was tied to the journal...

the Mystery Man, if he's even alive.

According to the lore we dug through,

you can only reverse
the polarity at midnight.

So we need to buy ourselves some time.

By fighting an immortal entity.

Can't k*ll her, but she is vulnerable.

Consuming monster essence
gave the Queen monster powers,

but it also gave her monster weakness.

I cut her with a silver blade.

Won't be enough to k*ll her, but...

It'll be enough to piss her off

until the clock strikes : .

Okay, you two still need
to recover, so stay here,

wait until the time is right,

Okay, look, I know that you're
