Sam and Dean are investigating robberies of a jewelry store and a bank in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which appear to be committed by long term trusted employees who then killed themselves right after the robberies. The brothers question [[Characters/SupernaturalOtherHumans Ronald Resnick]], a security guard who was beaten unconscious by the teller who robbed the bank. They find out that Ron believes a "half-man, half-robot" which he terms "mandroid" is taking other people's forms, killing them, and committing the robberies. He points out glowing eyes on the bank security tapes, which he believes are laser eyes, as evidence that the robber was a "mandroid".
