--->'''-- Tessa to Dean'''

Dean goes to [[TheGrimReaper Death]] to make a deal to bring Sam's soul back. Death agrees, on the condition that Dean put on his ring and do his job for one day, under the guidance of the Reaper Tessa. At first, Dean does well, reaping a robber who got shot while holding up a convenience store and an overweight man who has a heart attack. But when his next victim is a [[LittlestCancerPatient twelve year-old girl with a heart defect,]] he refuses. By upsetting the natural order of things, Dean causes the death of a nurse. Her grief-stricken husband, driving home drunk, nearly crashes into a bus and causes more deaths, but Dean removes the ring in order to stop him. Even though he has already lost the bet, he returns to the hospital and reaps the girl in order to prevent more unnecessary deaths.

Meanwhile, Sam summons Balthazar and asks for his help in preventing Dean from returning his soul. Balthazar gives him a spell that requires the blood of Sam's father figure. So Sam [[AxCrazy attempts to kill Bobby,]] eventually tying him up in his own basement. Sam is just about to slash Bobby's throat when Dean returns and punches him out.

* ChessWithDeath: In exchange for bringing Sam's soul back to his body Dean has to do Death's job for a day. Dean ends up failing the test, but Death returns the soul anyway. Firstly because his real reason for the task was to show Dean what forces he was messing with by constantly resurrecting, and also because Sam and Dean's current investigation suited his purposes. He may have wanted a day off too.

* InfantImmortality: Dean invokes this, outright refusing to reap a little girl who is dying of a genetic heart defect because it's unfair (which admittedly, it is). It is subverted when this upheaval of the natural order results in the death of other people. Dean then corrects his mistake and kills her, agreeing with her after she dies that the natural order is stupid.

* ScrewDestiny: Dean tries to use his powers as Death to do good by letting a sick girl live in defiance of what Tessa calls 'the Natural Order', the established flow of life and death. Subverted when it causes more collateral damage than Dean had foreseen and he's forced to follow destiny anyway, even if it's unfair.
