In the battle for control of Dean's body, Michael will use his most devastating angel ability yet – guilt.
Michael may have pulled a fast one on the Winchesters but it was Sam and Castiel that came prepared with special angels cuffs that would neutralize the powers of an archangel.

After finding Dean in his room, binging Hatchet Man horror movies and eating pizza he knows that he has just the case to get his brother out of his funk. Fortunately enough, Sam just found something in Salem, Ohio where a man was attacked by a Panthero action figure.
A trip to Sioux Falls for the Winchesters always has two things: Jody Mills and dead bodies.

Monsters don't always come from below.
After finding a tip on the Michael's possible location, Sam, Bobby and Mary are off to Duluth while Castiel stays back to babysit Jack and Nick.
