This episode summary is an official CW press release. It may contain errors.

Sam and Dean enlist the help of their pal Garth (guest star DJ Qualls) to gain inside information on what Michael may be planning. The brothers split up to each go after weapons that can aid in their fight against the Archangel, but this may be a fight our heroes cannot win.


The episode starts out with Michael, in a new female vessel, recruiting werewolves for his monster army. One of the werewolves is revealed to be Garth, who Michael notes of. Garth questions his familiarity with him, as Michael states he saw Garth from possessing Dean and mentions their friendship. Michael expresses doubt in his trustworthiness before Garth claims to be joining Michael to be on the "winning side" of the war for his wife and child.

Garth is revealed to be a spy for Sam and Dean and is relaying all the information he hears to Sam through phone calls. After the call, Castiel tells Sam and Dean that Ketch is face timing them, and Ketch tells them he was able to get the exorcizing-egg but had to put it in the mail after being cornered by monsters. Garth is then forced to drink blood mixed with Michael's grace, which gives him extra strength and makes him immune to silver. He overhears Michael planning an attack.

Sam and Jack go to retrieve the egg from the mailing facility it is being held at, while Dean and Cas head to an abandoned recycling facility, where Dark Kaia is hiding with the spear. Jack and Sam manage to retrieve the egg but are ambushed by Michael and two of his soldiers. Jack is kidnapped, Michael destroys the egg, and Sam is knocked unconscious. At the recycling facility, Dean and Cas manage to convince Dark Kaia to lend them her spear. Dean gets a call from Sam who tells him what happened.

Sam arrives at the building Michael is at before Dean and Cass, so he decides to go in and rescue Jack alone. He kills many of the monsters including a fleeing Melanie and others until he finds Jack also reunites with Garth but has to knock him unconscious after he is controlled by Michael and made to attempt to kill Sam and Jack. Dean and Cas arrive, and they set off to kill Michael, knowing they no longer have the advantage of surprise due to Michael being able to sense Castiel.

Michael repossesses Dean

Michael takes control of Dean again.

Dean manages to get the upper hand on Michael, but Michael possesses Dean once again and breaks the spear. Michael reveals he left a "backdoor" open in order to repossess Dean, and only left so he could crush Dean's spirit and make Dean less resistant next time he possessed him. The episode ends with Michael snapping his fingers, presumably to signal his monster army to start the attack on Kansas City.
