After Dean wakes up, he is able to track the GPS on Sam's phone to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duluth,_Minnesota Duluth, Minnesota.]] He arrives to find Sam holding a knife to [[Characters/SupernaturalHunters Jo Harvelle's]] throat. Sam asks Dean to kill him before he kills Jo. Dean lowers his gun and turns away, only to surprise Sam by dousing him in holy water and revealing that Sam is possessed by a demon. Dean chases demon-possessed Sam out on to a dock, where the demon shoots Dean, and Dean falls into Lake Superior. Demon-possessed Sam leaves, believing Dean dead, but Jo hears Dean's ringtone, drags Dean out of the lake, and patches up the gunshot wound.

Dean realizes that Sam probably went after the nearest hunter, [[Characters/SupernaturalHunters Bobby Singer]] in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sioux_Falls,_South_Dakota Sioux Falls, South Dakota.]] Bobby realizes that Sam is possessed when he chokes on a beer laced with holy water. Bobby knocks the possessed Sam out and binds him to a chair under a devil's trap. Dean arrives in time to help Bobby try to exorcise the demon, but they are unsuccessful due to a binding brand on Sam's arm. The demon uses an incantation to crack the ceiling and break the devil's trap. The demon then reveals that she is the same demon that possessed [[spoiler:[[Characters/SupernaturalDemons Meg]]]] and that she crawled her way out of Hell to be able to torture the Winchesters. While she is beating up Dean, Bobby manages to burn the binding brand on Sam's arm with a hot poker, and the demon leaves Sam's body.
