Continuing on from 4.09 I Know What You Did Last Summer...
Castiel and Uriel appear and demand that Sam and Dean hand over Anna, with Castiel announcing, "We're here for Anna... she has to die." Uriel states that Anna is not as innocent as she appears. The boys protest but the angels attack. Suddenly a bright light engulfs them and the angels are repelled and disappear. The boys go to the room where Anna was hiding, and find that she has used her blood to draw Angel Banishing Sigils on a mirror and use some spell against the angels.
Sam, Dean, Ruby and Anna take refuge at Bobby's place, although Bobby is away on a job in the Caribbean, putting Anna in Bobby's Panic Room.
Sam discovers that when Anna was a child, she claimed she had another father, who was mad at her. She claims to remember nothing of this, so Dean brings Pamela Barnes to try and unlock her memories. Anna remembers, and reveals that she is an angel who chose to fall to Earth and become human, relinquishing her Grace.
Sam tracks Anna's grace, which was mistaken for a meteor when she fell, to Kentucky, where an oak tree grew on the place where it landed. Sam, Dean, Ruby and Anna travel there only to find it gone. Anna then overhears the angels talking. She reports that if she is not handed over to them, Dean will be returned to Hell. Later, Anna tells Dean she knows what he did in Hell, and that he should forgive himself. She kisses him, and they make love in the back of the Impala.
Ruby goes to a crossroads and reveals herself to Alastair. She offers to give up Anna, if Alastair will let her and the Winchesters go. He captures and tortures her with her knife. She won't reveal Anna's location verbally, but she will take him there.
Uriel appears to Dean in a dream, taunting him, and reveals that he holds Anna's grace in a necklace. He demands Anna, saying he knows Dean's weak spot, and offers him a choice.
Uriel and Castiel appear to take Anna. Dean's choice is revealed: either Anna dies - or Sam. As the angels are about to take her, an injured Ruby appears with Alastair. The demons and angels confront each other and another fight ensues, during which Anna steals her Grace from Uriel and becomes an angel again. During the process, Alastair disappears. Uriel and Castiel leave, and we find out that it was Sam's plan all along to bring the demons and angels together to get them to fight each other.
On the side of the road, Dean and Sam have a beer and Dean starts to talk about his time in Hell. He reveals that the time was more like forty years than four months and that he underwent excruciating torture, and that each day, Alastair would offer to let him off the rack, if Dean would become the torturer himself. Dean weeps as he admits to Sam that after 30 years, he broke and took up tormenting other souls.
