Synopsis

Gordon Walker has escaped from prison, and tracks down Bela after he finds out she had been working with the Winchesters. Although he threatens to shoot her, she only reveals their whereabouts when Gordon gives her a priceless mojo bag.

Sam and Dean are hunting a vampire who has killed two people. They find a third victim still alive, and Dean captures the vampire and subdues her by injecting her with dead man's blood. When Sam and Dean interrogate the vampire, Lucy, they find out she was picked up in a club by a guy called Dixon who spiked her drink with vampire’s blood. He took her back to his place, but she escaped and started killing people to feed. She is unaware of what's happened - she thinks she is on a drug high and can't come down. Seeing no alternative, and with Sam's approval, Dean kills her.

Meanwhile, Gordon and Kubrick interview Lucy's third victim in the hospital and find out that the Winchesters were the ones who saved him. Sam and Dean visit the club where Lucy had her drink spiked. They see a man who fits Lucy's description leaving with a woman and they intervene as the man is about to feed her vampire blood. Just as Sam and Dean start to fight Dixon, Gordon and Kubrick appear and start shooting at the boys. While Dean draws their fire to give Sam a chance to escape, Dixon knocks Gordon out and kidnaps him.

Gordon wakes up to find himself bound to a bed frame. Nearby two young women are restrained – Dixon is turning them into vampires. Dixon explains to Gordon that hunters killed his nest, including his daughter. Dixon had been planning on using Gordon to feed the girls he is converting, but as Gordon continues to taunt him, Dixon snaps and instead cuts Gordon and bleeds onto the wound.

Dean has worked out that Bela betrayed them to Gordon and he calls her, threatening to kill her next time they meet. In order to placate him, Bela uses a Ouija board to contact a spirit and find out where Gordon is. She passes the information onto the boys, along with the spirit's warning that the boys should stay away from Gordon.

When Sam and Dean arrive at Dixon’s place, they find Gordon gone and Dixon distraught. The two young women are dead, their heads ripped off by Gordon – now a vampire. Gordon visits Kubrick, revealing he is now a vampire. He tells Kubrick to let him live long enough to use his new improved strength and senses to kill Sam. Nevertheless, Kubrick attempts to kill him and so Gordon rips his heart out.

Dean and Sam search for Gordon to no avail. Dean declares he will go after Gordon on his own but Sam protests and confronts Dean about his attitude since he made the deal with the crossroads demon. Dean denies he is scared but Sam persists, saying that what he really wants is to feel like Dean is his brother again. Dean agrees that he will stay, and they prepare to wait out the night.

Gordon calls the boys and tells them he has a young woman he will kill if they don’t meet him. When Sam and Dean arrive they rescue the woman, but as they are leaving, a roller door closes, separating them. Trapped in the darkness, Sam is at a disadvantage to Gordon's enhanced sight. Outside Dean fails to open the door, and then has to use the Colt, as the young woman they rescued turns out to be a vampire and attacks him.

Dean locates where Sam and Gordon are fighting, but Gordon throws him aside and then starts to bite him. Sam pulls Gordon from Dean and manages to grab some barbed wire which he wraps around Gordon’s neck. Sam garrotes Gordon until he is decapitated. Later, on the side of the road, the boys have a beer while Dean works on the Impala. He starts to explain to Sam what’s wrong with the engine, and asks him to try fixing it. When Sam asks why, Dean replies that he is doing what a brother should do – showing his little brother the ropes.

Quotes

Gordon: Sam Winchester's the Antichrist.

Bela: Mmm. I'd heard something about that...
Gordon: It's true.
Bela: ...from my good friend, the Easter Bunny, who'd heard it from the Tooth Fairy. Are you off your meds?

Gordon: The world hangs in the balance. So you go ahead and be a smart-ass, but tell me where they are, or I shoot.
Gordon: This woman has a very dangerous virus.

Man: What? She bit me in the neck!
Kubrick: The bite doesn't matter. You have to actually ingest the blood to be infected.

Gordon: Good thing, too. We'd have had to kill you.
Dean: That bitch. Hi, Bela.

Bela: Hello, Dean.
Dean: Question for you. When you called me yesterday, it wasn't to thank me for saving your ass, was it?

Bela: No. Gordon Walker paid me to tell him where you were.
Dean: Bela, if we make it out of this alive, the first thing I'm gonna do is kill you.

Bela: You're not serious.

Dean: Listen to my voice and tell me if I'm serious.
Sam: Yeah, I know. We've got to kill him.

Dean: Really? Just like that? I thought you would have been like, 'No, we can't, he's human, it's wrong.'

Sam: No, I'm done. I mean, Gordon's not gonna stop until we're dead... or till he is.
Dixon: I was desperate! You ever felt desperate? I've lost everyone I ever loved. I'm staring down eternity alone. Can you think of a worse hell?
Dean: Well, there's Hell.
Gordon: You have to let me do one last thing first.

Kubrick: What?
Gordon: Kill Sam Winchester.
Kubrick: Gordon...

Gordon: It's the only... it is the one good thing to come out of this nightmare. I'm stronger, I'm faster – I can finish him.
Sam: You know what, man? I'm sick and tired of your kamikaze trip

Dean: Whoa, whoa, kamikaze? I'm more like a ninja.
Sam: That's not funny.

Dean: It's a little funny.
Sam: Yeah, I've been following you around my entire life! I mean, I've been looking up to you since I was four, Dean. Studying you, trying to be just like my big brother. So yeah, I know you. Better than anyone else in the entire world. And this is exactly how you act when you're terrified. And, I mean, I can't blame you. It's just...

Dean: What?

Sam: I wish you would drop the show and be my brother again. 'Cause... just 'cause.
Sam: What's with the auto shop? What, you don't mean you want—

Dean: Yeah, I do. You fix it.
Sam: Dean, you barely let me drive this thing.

Dean: Well, it's time. You should know how to fix it. You're gonna need to know these things for the future. And besides, that's my job, right? Show my little brother the ropes? Put your shoulder into it.

Trivia & References

"Fresh Blood" is the title of a song by Alice Cooper from the album DaDa.
Dean: All right, listen, Wavy Gravy. It's not going to stop. You've already killed two people, almost three.
Wavy Gravy was a hippie and peace activist, as well as "official" clown for the Grateful Dead.
In Bram Stoker's Dracula, Lucy Westenra was an unknowing victim of the vampire, Dracula. Likewise, the Lucy in this episode is an unknowing victim of Dixon.
The showdown between Sam and Gordon after Gordon turns off the lights is reminiscent of a similar scene involving Clarice Starling and Buffalo Bill during the climax of The Silence of the Lambs.

Minutiae

Mercedes McNab played schoolgirl-turned-vampire Harmony in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and later Angel.
Dixon's hunting ground was the "Spider" bar, on Jefferson St.
The neon sign outside the warehouse where the vampire is holed up says "Trade Co."
The factory where the final fight takes place is "on Riverside, off the turnpike."
When the fight is over with Gordon, Dean stands next to a sign that says "183 Days" - possibly a reference to how long he has left on his deal.
