DO NOT CHANGE!
Jody Mills (guest star Kim Rhodes) reluctantly attends a mandatory sheriff's retreat and is partnered with an overeager sheriff named Donna (guest star Briana Buckmaster) who wants to bond. Just as Jody thinks things can't get any worse, a body with just strings of meat and skin hanging off the bones is discovered. While the local sheriffs blame an animal attack, Jody knows better and calls Sam and Dean.
Jody is forced to go to a sheriff's retreat in Hibbing, Minnesota by the mayor of Sioux Falls despite having Alex to look after and a lot of work to do. On her way in, she encounters a young beggar, Starr, who she gives some money to get lunch. Inside, she meets Sheriff Donna Hanscum and is disconcerted by Donna's overly-friendly attitude. However, she is annoyed by Sheriff Doug Kontos' rudeness to Donna, and Donna explains that Doug is her ex-husband.
After talking to Alex and trusting her not to throw a party while she's gone, Jody finds that she has to partner with Donna for the duration of the retreat. While seeing what activities there are to do at the retreat, Jody gets interested when another sheriff mentions that a body was found eaten nearly whole with no clues and the local police believing it to be an animal attack. Recognizing that it might be a monster, Jody excuses herself and calls Sam and Dean Winchester. The boys are researching the Mark of Cain, but have found nothing in the Men of Letters library or files. Jody is annoyed that Sam didn't tell her Dean was no longer missing. She tells Sam and Dean about the body, but refuses their help and says she'll call if she needs them. Despite this, they decide to come anyway.
Wanting to check out the body, Jody goes to the morgue but the coroner, Doctor Shelly Pierson refuses to let her in. However, Donna arrives and convinces her to let them see the body. While Donna examines the body, Jody asks for the man's personal effects and is surprised to find that his pants have no belt. After Donna tells her that she can't recognize the bite of what killed the man, Jody grows worried as she knows it must be a monster after all and not a wild animal. She finds the sheriff to try and gauge if he knows more about the attacks, Jody and Donna approach him, but he is unhelpful until his deputy pulls him away to tell him about another victim under the guise of telling him about a "raffle."
Jody doesn't believe him about the raffle and is disgusted at Doug's actions, telling Donna that he seems like a "dick." Donna tells her she still cares and then heads off to get away from the disgusting display. After Donna leaves, Jody confronts Len who admits that someone else turned up dead and he is trying to keep it quiet to not spoil everyone's good time. Afterwards, Jody calls Alex and is annoyed with her, especially when she hears firecrackers in the background. Donna arrives and points out how Jody's life isn't perfect either and then gets annoyed as Jody was leaving without her until Jody explains there was another attack and she was going to go check the morgue until she realized it was probably closed. Jody explains that she's grown frustrated with her inability to get through to Alex and Donna comforts her about it. While Donna suggests they hang out together, Jody decides to go to bed instead.
When Sam and Dean show up the next morning, Jody is at first annoyed to see them as she told them she could handle it. While she was planning to head to the morgue again, Sam informs her they just went and all the flesh was eaten off of the second victim too. When she finds out that the victim's wallet was missing, Jody tells the Winchesters about the missing belt on the first victim. When Sam and Dean recognize Donna, Jody is surprised. The brothers explain that Donna nearly blew a case for them. Jody explains that while Donna has been helpful, she's been trying to keep her from learning the truth to protect her and while annoyed, agrees to distract Donna for them. When Donna comes over, Jody gets her to go see the weapons that are on display to distract her. While there, Jody is unimpressed with the weapons the man shows them until Doug shows up to make fun of Donna again. Eventually Jody can't take anymore of it and tells Doug off which annoys Donna who tells her to keep quiet about her husband until Jody loses one of her own. This causes Jody to flashback to the death of her husband and Donna realizes that she did lose a husband. Though Jody forgives Donna for her mistake, she won't talk about it with her.
After the body of Sheriff Goodhill is found killed in an apparent animal attack, Dean asks Jody if she's seen Sheriff Len Cuse and she hasn't in awhile. She then asks about him as she heard about him going off on his own for a while. Dean assures her that its nothing he can't handle and she promises to listen if he ever needs someone to talk to. Like Dean, Jody is surprised to hear that the surveillance video of the first attack is deleted, but before she can question it further, Donna pulls her aside to talk. Jody is surprised to hear Donna's description of Len's teeth and realizing that he's a vampire, calls Sam and Dean. When Jody can't get them, she and Donna go to break into Len's room themselves. In the room, Jody promises to explain later about all of Len's sunscreen but before she can examine an address Donna finds, Sam and Dean arrive and Jody tells them Len is a vampire and is forced to explain the truth to Donna. The Winchesters also inform Donna of what occurred at the retreat, disappointing her on the supposed miracle treatment. After they figure out where to go from the address Donna found, Jody sticks up for Donna when she wants to go with them and the Winchesters reluctantly agree as a result.
At the farm, after the Winchesters are knocked out, Jody and Donna are taken prisoner by Catfish and the other vampire that was part of the nest besides Starr. The Winchesters wake up in the barn as Jody is annoyed that the vampires steal from their victims, as well as kill them and consume every part and that she gave Starr lunch money while Starr remarks she made it for dinner. Dean and Donna work on secretly trying to get free while Starr and Len explains that Len turned the nest and taught them to consume everything of their prey but then left after he grew a conscience and went on to protect people to try to make up for his evil past. Donna speaks up on finding him crouched him over a corpse but he states he found it though didn't bite. When Len agrees to join them, he is ordered to kill the hostages, Jody tells him that he doesn't have to hurt them and when his refusal leads to Starr killing him, everyone is horrified by the action. When Dean breaks free and attacks the vampires, Jody kicks Starr to the ground so she can't help the others. As a result, Starr goes after her but Donna appears behind and decapitates Starr before she can harm Jody. Dean congratulates Donna on her successful monster kill while she is pleased by the praise.
Afterwards, Jody tells Donna she did a great job on killing Starr and offers to help her learn how to fight monsters, something Donna gladly accepts. Dean and Sam talk with Dean remarking he felt like himself in the hunt rather than the Mark taking control, something that pleases Sam.
