In Omaha Nebraska a young woman, Deedee is closing up her shop. A man arrives at her door, and insists on seeing her. She explains that she can read auras and he invites her to read his. She reaches out her hands placing them either side of his head and is shocked by the wave of energy she sees as he reveals himself to be a wraith. She screams and he impales her outstretched hand to the table before getting up and killing her from behind with his spike.

At the bunker in his bedroom Dean is sitting on his bed drinking beer and listening to rock music with his headphones. In Jack’s bedroom, Sam and Jack are talking. Sam gives Jack a pen drive and explains that perhaps what he will see will help him to answer some of his questions. Jack sees the video his mother Kelly Kline made for him before her death and his birth. Sam leaves him to watch and as he is walking away he receives a call from the psychic Missouri Moseley asking desperately for help. Sam tells Dean about the tand that he has asked Jody Mills to investigate. Dean becomes angry and says he has no intention of putting Jody at risk to stay and look after Jack.

When Dean arrives at the scene of the crime, Jody is already with Missouri. After some discussion of the victim’s wounds, agree that the monster is likely a wraith. This is confirmed by a vision Missouri has while touching the doorknob and the table-she is able to see exactly what happened. In a second reddened vision she sees her son James seemingly in danger. Back at the bunker Sam is trying to train Jack to control his powers and says he needs to focus. He asks Jack to move a pencil with his mind but Jack isn’t able to move it.

Missouri calls her son and as she is trying to warn him about the wraith he hangs up on her. She chooses to stay behind and insists that Dean and Jody go and save her family. In the bunker Jack isn’t able to move the pencil and Sam becomes frustrated. In the end they decide to have a break and Sam goes to get some food for them both. Jack continues to try desperately to move the pencil.

Inside Deedee’s house Mosely is confronted by the wraith and she invites him to kill her saying that his killing her will guarantee his own death. He launches himself at her as she refuses to scream.

Patience, Missouri’s granddaughter meets up with a friend by their lockers as they chat about volleyball. As they part company, Patience finds herself alone in the corridor with flickering lights. She follows a blood trail and sees her grandmother slumped, bloody, against the wall just before she is attacked from behind. Patience wakes up sitting bolt upright in bed, breathing heavily. The alarm goes off and she gets up and goes down into the kitchen where her father James asks if she slept. He dismisses her when she tells him about her nightmare. Dean is in a service station buying beer when he hears of Missouri’s death over the radio. Out in the street he talks to Jody and they leave immediately in the Impala to save Missouri’s family as she had insisted. When they arrive at James house they explain who they are, and he tries to get rid of them. Finally they tell him about the death of his mother and that his family is being hunted by the same creature, a wraith.

Patience and her friend meanwhile are walking down the school corridor towards their lockers talking about boys. The same scene as in her dream is replayed and Patience sees a flickering vision of her grandmother again. As she goes to close her locker door she is confronted by the grinning wraith, spike exposed. He attacks her and she fights back. She manages to snap his spike and he screams, as they they fall on the floor. Dean and Jody arrive, and Dean shoots the wraith in the back. He flees outside. Dean loses him, and goes back to the school where he and Jody explain to Patience that the wraith is stalking psychics. She denies being a psychic saying that her grandmother was a fraud who abandoned her family. At the bunker Jack disappears from view on Sam’s PC. He finally finds Jack huddled in a corner, miserable and upset. Jack says he believes he must be evil because Dean thinks he is evil and Sam says he knows what it feels like to not fit in and have a darkness inside. He crouches in front of Jack and pulls him to his feet kindly saying that family, Dean and Cas helped him and now he wants to help Jack. They decide to leave training.

In James’ house, the truth is revealed to Patience about her grandmother. James tells Patience to go and pack. In her bedroom she takes a jewelled brooch from a box and sees her mother’s funeral and her grandmother’s farewell and promise of protection. She opens her wardrobe and finds herself face to face with the wraith. Jody, Dean and James race upstairs on hearing her screams but find only an open window on entering her room. Revealing himself capable of magic and divination James is able to trace the location of Patience. Patience finds herself tied to a chair in a dimly lit basement. The wraith explains how he wants to feed on her forever and just as he is about to attack when Dean Jody and James run in. One by one she sees her father, Dean and Jody killed.

Patience sees all their dead faces and is then back in the present. This time the scene begins to repeat itself but she is able to warn James, Jody and Dean before the wraith can kill them. Dean overpowers the wraith and stabs him. Everybody gets to their feet, injured but alive, and Patience finally admits that she is indeed a psychic. Jody and Dean lean against the boot of the Impala and congratulate Patience on what she did. They discuss whether she should ignore her gift or not and Dean advises her to grab a chance at normal whenever possible. Instead Jody advises her to do what she wants and gives her her card if she needs to talk. Dean and Jody get in the Impala and drive away. Dean arrives at the bunker and Sam says how sorry he is about Missouri. They speak about Jack and Sam confronts Dean about his behaviour towards the boy. Sam tries to draw a comparison between him drinking demon blood and Jack. Dean becomes angry and calls Jack a freak, which Jack overhears. Sam and Dean have a blazing row which finishes with Dean yelling and blaming Jack for Castiel’s death. As Jack listens he repeats Castiel’s name and his eyes glow yellow.

Castiel, fully clothed is lying face down in a black nothing. He wakes with a start when he hears his name being whispered and slowly sits up, looking around him perplexed.

Kelly: Jack, don't let anyone tell you who you are supposed to be. Because who you're supposed to be isn't fate, it isn't me, it isn't your father. You are who you choose to be. And I know you are going to be okay. God, you are going to be amazing. You have an angel watching over you.
Missouri: Oh honey, I'm sorry for your losses.
Dean: Leave it to a psychic to cut right through the small talk.
Wraith: Well then, I guess it's time to, you know, scream.
Missouri: No, there'll be none of that. I've seen how this turns out. I run, you catch me, I die. I stay, I die. But this way, my people, they're gonna murder your ass.
Patience: My grandma said she was psychic, but she's a fraud. She doesn't care about me, she ditched me -- me and Dad right after Mom died.
Dean: Okay, this woman you're describing that walked out on her family, that wasn't who Missouri was at all.
Sam: No. Jack, why do you think you're evil? Because when I look at you, that's not what I see.

Jack: Yeah, well, Dean sees it. That's why he says -- he said he'd kill me.
Sam: He what?
Jack: And maybe he should. Mom said I could be good, that I had the choice to be good, that it was up to me. But she's dead, because of me. I've only been on Earth for a few days, and I've already hurt people. I've already done bad things, and no matter how hard I try, I can't -- I can't do the one good stupid thing you want me to. So, I must be evil. Like Lucifer.

Sam: Jack, listen. Asmodeus tricking you, Dean... none of that is your fault. I think that, uh, everything that has happened, you are scared to use your power and me pressuring you certainly isn't helping.
Jack: Sam, why are you being so nice to me?
Sam: Because I know what it feels like to feel like you don't belong, to feel like there's this darkness inside of you, to be scared of who you are, what you can do. Dean, Cas -- my family helped me through that. So now I wanna help you, because you're not evil Jack.
Jody: The way you handled that wraith, you still got it.
Dean: You given any thought to what's next?

Patience: School's in an hour, so, I guess, calculus.
Jody: And your gift?
Patience: I talked to my Dad, and he thinks I should put it away. Dad says we should just get back to normal. Maybe he's right.

Dean: He is. This life, hunting monsters, there's no joy in it. There's nothing but pain, horror, and death. So, if you get a chance at normal. you take it.
Jody: Patience, wait. I may be out of line here, but you don't have to listen to him -- to either of them -- if that's what you really want. I had a daughter, I guess, Claire. And I asked her to stay in line, to defy who she really was, because I thought it would keep her safe. It didn't work. It never does. Your gift -- maybe you're right, maybe it will go away. But if it doesn't, you try to force it down to make someone else happy, you will only make yourself miserable. It's your choice. But if you ever need someone to talk to, some place to go, my door's always open.
Dean: I told him the truth. See, you think you can use this freak. But I know how this ends, and it ends bad.

Sam: I didn't.
Dean: What?
Sam: I didn't end bad. When I was the freak, when I was drinking demon blood.
Dean: Come on, man. That's totally different.
Sam: Was it? Because you could have put a bullet in me. Dad told you to put a bullet in me, but you didn't. You saved me! So help me save him!
Dean: You deserved to be saved. He doesn't!
Sam: Yes he does, Dean. Of course he does!
Dean: Look, I know you think you can use him as some sort of an inter-dimensional can opener, and that's fine. But don't act like you care about him. Because you only care about what he can do for you. So if you wanna pretend, that's fine. But me, I can hardly look at the kid. Because when I do all I see is everyone we lost.
Sam: Mom chose to take that shot at Lucifer. That is not on Jack
Dean: And what about Cas?
Sam: What about Cas?

Dean: He manipulated him. He made him promises, said paradise on Earth, and Cas bought it and you know what it got him? It got him dead. Now you may be able to forget about that but I cant!
