In a forest in South Carolina, a distressed Eileen is being chased by a hellhound. When she reaches a small clearing she steadies her weapon and begins blindly and fruitlessly firing into the open. After she is mauled by the hellhound, Mr. Ketch calls it off of Eileen's lifeless body.
Entering a motel room, Sam and Dean search for Mary in her last known location. Concluding from her absence that she must be with the British Men of Letters, Dean makes a phone call to Ketch inquiring as to her whereabouts; Ketch denies knowing her location. Sam then gets a phone call from Sheriff Jody Mills, in which she informs him of Eileen’s brutal demise. The brothers realize something twisted must be occurring since so many American hunters are being killed and they begin to worry for their mother.
In South Carolina, Sam and Dean identify Eileen’s body, and piece together that her death was by a hellhound, suggesting that a demon must be to blame. Their worry grows for Mary and other hunters and they become angry at not having an answer to the problem. At his palace, Crowley directs tumultuous orders to a demon to find Kelly Kline for him. The demon reports that Dagon, Kelly’s captor and Prince of Hell, is dead and that Lucifer’s son is almost due, to which Crowley suggests this should only make the demon’s job of finding Kelly easier.
A hunter named Rick arrives home to find Mary sitting in his living room chair. Having previously worked together, they begin to shoot the breeze but as he goes to grab a beer for her, he notices Mary sneaking up behind him to attack. He tries to defend himself, but she cuts his throat. Mary awakens covered in sweat in a British Men of Letters locked room. Lady Bevell waltzes in, and through the proceeding questioning from her to Bevell, Mary realizes she is being brainwashed. Elsewhere at the BMOL compound, Crowley appears before Dr. Hess, attempting to update his current negotiations, ensuring they have the same deal in the US as they do in the UK regarding Crowley's operations. All goes smoothly until she asks him to give up the Winchester brothers, a request which leaves him looking conflicted.
Drexel sneaks into Lucifer's holding room, where he tells Lucifer it won’t be much longer until he is freed. Crowley, back from his meeting with Hess, is discussing hellhounds with Sam, assuring him no demons have been using them to attack hunters. Walking into Lucifer’s cell, he begins to taunt Lucifer by informing him of Dagon’s death, Kelly being under the protection of Castiel, and Crowley’s goal to raise Lucifer’s child himself.
Outside of a post office, Dean opens a letter written by Eileen to the brothers. From the letter’s contents, Sam and Dean realize the British Men of Letters are to blame for her death as well as the other mysterious hunter deaths. Back at the Bunker, the boys search for bugs planted and find one beneath the grand map table. Acting unaware, Sam and Dean give fake knowledge and a location for the next night in hopes of discovering their enemies.
As Drexel attempts to shut down the warding imprisoning Lucifer in his vessel, he soon realizes that powering down the spell work has caused the polarity to shift, giving Lucifer control over Crowley, much to Lucifer's delight.
Back at the BMOL headquarters, Bevell and Ketch discuss an advanced ranking job opening with each other and realize they are both competing for the position. Ketch is told to see Mary; upon entering her room, Mary seems wrecked. She approaches him slowly as she asks him questions about their control over her. Still approaching him, she grabs his gun and fires a shot at the wall behind him; he regains control over his firearm, and she is left in the room sobbing with her knees on the floor.
Bevell pulls up to the location Sam and Dean convinced British Men of Letters to arrive at; Sam is seen entering the building with agents following. Trapping the BMOL members inside, the brothers then stop Lady Bevell, who was watching from comfort of her car, at gunpoint. Crowley enters Lucifer’s holding room and the tables get turned. Lucifer mocks Crowley by making faces when he talks, which escalates to Lucifer standing up and demonstrating his new power over Crowley, making him hop on one foot. Lady Bevell is shown being transported by Sam and Dean, seated in the back of Baby. She tells them their loved ones, including Claire and Jody, will soon be killed. Now freed, Lucifer throws Crowley around his his throne room and cuts him with an angel blade before throwing him down and stabbing him in the chest. Right before being stabbed, however, Crowley stealthily possesses the body of a nearby rat, saving himself from certain death.
Sam, Dean, and Lady Bevell walk down the Bunker steps where a few British Men of Letters agents await them. A gunfight ensues and Sam and Dean are able to subdue the Brits. While holding Ketch at gunpoint, Mary appears. The boys assume she will help them but instead she fires a warning shot at Dean, proving her loyalties are with the British Men of Letters. As he is leaving the Bunker, Ketch betrays Lady Bevell and makes her stay with Sam and Dean. He informs them of having triggered the Bunker locks, shut off the water, and trapped them with limited oxygen. Driving back to the compound, Ketch assures Mary that in time it will become easier to kill the ones she loves.
Finally freed, Lucifer stands atop a mountain, arms outstretched, smiling.
