A totally not creepy man wants to check out an item from his safety deposit box in a bank. That item would be in box number 1 – so already very very old. Inside the box is a bone, a very old bone. Once he has his bone he turns to the nice helpful bank employee – there’s a scream and a classic Supernatural blood spatter. The monsters of Supernatural are so messy with their food.
With the Winchesters, Ken is worried about his mother having seen Channing killed by demons last episode. He’s worried that she’s not ok and could be in demon hands. Dean doesn’t want to go, it’s out of their way, it’s probably a trap, Crowley needs Ken’s mother alive for leverage and, of course, a trip to Purgatory has burned away several more layers of Dean’s empathy. Ken doesn’t give up and Dean agrees to the road trip.
At Ken’s mother’s he notices she’s ok – but sad. Dean notices 2 demons scoping out the place. After stabbing them both with the doom dagger (have they forgotten how to perform exorcisms?) they go in, slightly spoil the touching reunion by dousing Ken’s mother with holy water, and then stabbing her good friend, Eunice (they actually use an exorcism to stop the demon escaping them get with the stabbing – exorcism guys, at least try to leave people alive).
Ms. Tran takes a minute to absorb the vast amount of knowledge they drop on her in a very short period of time. She takes a breath – then decides to get with the programme and get to it, including packing a bag to come with them. They try to talk her out of it, but she’s not having it, she’s coming with. They set conditions, including that she and Kevin both need to get anti-demon tattoos, he seems reluctant, she says “like it’s my first tattoo” leaving Kevin a little poleaxed
They go to collect the Word of God where Kevin stashed it in a locker – but it’s been removed. There were a string of thefts from the lockers by the ex-guard who is now in gaol. They go to question him but while Sam is asking the questions, Dean gets a flashback to purgatory, questioning monsters to try and find where Castiel was. He grabs the prisoner and holds a knife to his throat – the prisoner tells them where the Tablet is.
They go to the pawn shop for the tablet and he isn’t answering questions. Dean starts to get menacing but Ms. Tran takes over and is much much better at it, threatening him with tax evasion over the car he has.
