Episode(s) 14.15 Peace of Mind

Well, I like to think of myself as a 'kind of good' samaritan. You know, I've always been lucky. I've always had an intuition about what people were gonna do or say. Made me the king of poker night. But then, the mill shut down. And this town, the town I love, it started to die. And my sweet wife, she passed away. And the world kept getting worse. And they called it 'modernization.' And no matter what I did, people would turn to drink or drugs. They'd move away. They just weren't happy. Things kept getting worse and I started to hear noises. Voices. And I screamed at these voices! I said "Just make things better!" And you know what happened next? [...] The very next day, I thought - I just thought, "I wish there was more people in the soda shop." And I came in here that day and it was packed. And that's when I figured it out. I can make people do whatever I want.

14.15 Peace of Mind

Sam and Castiel meet Chip at Harrington's, where he reveals himself to be the mayor of Charming Acres. They ask him about Conrad Martin but Chip feigns ignorance, telling them he can only point them to where Conrad was staying in town.

When Castiel confronts Sunny Harrington about being a witch and brainwashing Sam into believing he is Justin Smith, they are interrupted by Chip, flanked by two other men and Sam. Chip takes a seat and begins to explain to Castiel his abilities and how he used them to change the town and make it a better place. He says he gave everyone in the town new names and new lives, making them happy, except for the ones like Conrad Martin and Justin Smith whose heads he caused to explode. Chip attempts to use his powers on Castiel, but they don't work due to him not being human, so he has Sam and his men attack while he confronts his daughter outside the shoppe.

Chip tries to blame Sunny for staying in town and not trying to stop him. When Sam and Castiel come outside, Chip flings Castiel into a bench with his powers and tries to make Sam’s head explode, but Sunny stops her father with her powers, leaving him trapped in a happy place inside his own mind.
