Hello, Dean. Miss me? You headed somewhere fun?
Dean: Well, we were headed to you, actually.
Sam: How'd you find us?
Amara: I smelled you from two states over. You have a very distinctive musk.
Dean: Thank you.
Amara: And I got wind of your friend Castiel's angelic APB. I knew you were looking for me.
Dean: We wanted to talk.
Amara: First, lunch.
You're hungry. I'm hungry. I like new earthly experiences and I have never had a Pennsylvania pierogi.
Castiel: My name is, um -- well, my name is not important. I do know what blind faith is. I used to just follow orders without question, and I did some pretty terrible things. I would never look beyond the plan. And then, of course, when it all came crashing down, I found myself lost. I didn't know what my purpose was anymore. And then one day, something changed, something amazing. I... I guess I found a family and I became a father. And in that, I rediscovered my faith. I rediscovered who I am.
Apologies, Dean, but you don't get anything. You see me sitting across from you. You see a woman. You see Chuck as a squirrley weirdo. But you can't imagine what we really are. We came into existence together. We are the same.
Sam: The former Death, he told us you were the firstborn.
Amara: Or he told you what you needed to hear. Chuck and I, we're twins. Creation and destruction, light and dark, balance. And when we split apart, all this was created.
Sam: The Big Bang? (Amara shrugs)
Dean: When you split? So, when... when he threw you in a cage. When he betrayed you, when he trapped you for an eternity.
You can't play on that, not with me. Maybe I'm a fool, but I believe caging me hurt him deeply. And I know for me to do that to him would be an agony. I'm sorry. I can't help you.
Amara: I told you Dean, he's my--
Dean: No, no. No. Why did you bring her back? You said that you wanted to show me something, that you wanted to, uh, to teach me something. I don't know if you were following along, but your little experiment, it came to a not-so happy ending. My mom is dead. So what exactly did you want to show me? What was the point?
Amara: I wanted two things for you, Dean. I wanted you to see that your mother was just a person, that the myth you'd held onto for so long of a better life, a life where she'd lived was just that, a myth. I wanted you to see that the real complicated Mary was better than your childhood dream because she was real. That now is always better than then. That you could finally start to accept your life.
Dean: And the second thing?
Amara: I thought having her back would release you, put that fire out. Your anger. But I guess we both know I failed at that.
Dean: You're damn right. Look at you. Just another cosmic dick rigging the game. You're just like your brother.
Amara: It was a gift, Dean, not a trial.
Dean: I'm not angry, Amara. I'm furious to know that all my life, I've been nothing but a hamster in a wheel stuck in a story. And you know whose fault that is? Chuck's. And it ain't just me. We're all trapped. Sam and Cass and Jack and even you. And you want to talk about the people that he's killing right now--
'Dean: Why? He's not stopping. And you're doing nothing to stop it. Think he gives a rat's ass about you? Well, now who's living in a dreamworld?
Amara: Can I... trust you?
Dean: I would never hurt you.
Then... I-I'll think about it.
Hey, Jack, when Pastor Joe asked you to speak, you were struggling. Was it, um, something -- something you were afraid to say? You know, what you're doing, you're shouldering a great burden. You don't have to do it alone.
Jack: Yes... I do. I've been lying to you.
Castiel: Lying about what?
Jack: I'm gonna die. When we -- when I kill Chuck and Amara, I'll die too.
Jack: Billie's spells have been turning me into some kind of bomb and when I go off, God and Amara will cease to exist. And... I won't survive. Don't tell Sam and Dean.
Castiel: Oh, yeah? Why not?
Jack: They won't understand. But I know... this is the only way they'll ever forgive me.
Castiel: No. I watched you die once and I will not do it again.
It's not your choice.
Cass? Hey, where you going? Where's Jack?
Castiel: He's in his room. We got back. We didn't want to wake you up.
Dean: Nah, I wasn't asleep. How'd the case go?
Castiel: Oh, it went. Uh, we solved it, saved some people. Amara?
Dean: Yeah. Yeah, we got her. I think she's on board.
Dean: Wait. What's happening? Where are you going?
Castiel: Going to look for another way. I have to.
Dean: What the hell are you talking about?
Dean, in case something goes wrong and I don't make it back, there's something you and Sam need to know.
