Following coordinates left to them by their father, Sam and Dean wind up in the woods in Colorado with a group of hikers as they stumble across a [[Characters/SupernaturalMonstersAndSupernaturalBeings wendigo]]. Sam is still grieving for Jessica and [[BadDreams suffering nightmares]]. Dean teaches Sam that helping others and saving people can provide some relief for his anger, as they work to save [[Characters/SupernaturalOtherHumans Tommy Collins]] and get to know his sister and brother in the process. Dean seems [[FlirtingUnderFire very interested]] in getting to know his sister, Haley Collins. However, they do not find their father, and they realize their father left them the coordinates because [[TakeUpMySword he wanted them to continue hunting]] and [[ParentalAbandonment not to help them find him]]. While the wendigo kills the group's forest guide and kidnaps Dean and Haley, they and Tommy are successfully rescued and the wendigo is killed by Dean with a flare gun.
