Sam and Dean bring Crowley back to the Men of Letters' bunker in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebanon,_Kansas Lebanon, Kansas,]] to Kevin's discomfiture. Abaddon returns and enlists help at the [[http://www.cnic.navy.mil/regions/cnrsw/installations/navbase_coronado.html Naval base]] in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coronado,_California#Navy Coronado, California]] to take over hell. Abaddon then lures Sam and Dean to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene,_Oregon Eugene, Oregon.]]
------------
[[PreviouslyOn The Road So Far]] plays. THEN [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E12AsTimeGoesBy Henry Winchester says, "Abaddon. She's a demon..." Sam completes the statement by saying, "who, it turns out, is a Knight of Hell." Henry explains that Knights of Hell are hand-picked by Lucifer himself.]] [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E23TheSacrifice Crowley says, "I am your King". Abaddon challenges, "About that ..." She punches Crowley again and again until he topples over and then says,"right now you and I are gonna talk about regime change." Sam covers Abaddon in holy water and ignites her, but she smokes out of the burnt body of Josie Sands. Sam asks Dean, "How do I stop?" Dean answers, "Just let it go. We will figure it out." Sam collapses.]] [[Recap/SupernaturalS09E01IThinkImGonnaLikeItHere Dean explains, "Sammy's hurt - he's hurt real bad." Then Dean prays, "This one goes out to any angel with their ears on. This is Dean Winchester, and I need your help." Ezekiel says, "Easy there, brother" after stopping an angel who was beating Dean up. After Dean ends up saving Ezekiel, Ezekiel says, "I heard your prayer, and I am here to help." Dean surrounds Ezekiel in a ring of burning holy oil and says, "You want to help? Start with a name." Dean banishes the other angels at the hospital. Back in Sam's hospital room, Dean says, "No. We had a deal. I fight. You Save." Ezekiel says, "There is a chance I can fix your brother from the inside." Ezekiel explains he will heal Sam as he heals himself, and he will leave once Sam is healed. Ezekiel possesses Sam, and in Sam's body Ezekiel says, "There is no reason for Sam to know I'm in here at all. Without his acceptance, Sam can eject me at any time. And if Sam does eject me, he will die." Dean answers, "Then we keep it a secret for now."]]

NOW a man drags a black body bag across the floor of a rundown candlelit house, and opens the bag to reveal a badly charred body. Meanwhile in a sunlit park, Sam and Dean discuss [[Characters/SupernaturalAngels Castiel's]] loss of grace and the fallen angels while sitting on a picnic table. Sam asks Dean what happened to Crowley, and is surprised to find Dean still has [[Characters/SupernaturalDemons Crowley]] in the trunk of the Impala. Back in the bathroom of the rundown house, the man who is wearing mechanic coveralls takes a switchblade from his pocket, his eyes flash black after he cracks his neck, and he cuts his forearm while a cloud of black smoke swirls above his head. He drips his blood into the bath tub and a bright light bursts from the tub. The cloud of dark smoke descends into the tub. A hand with red fingernails grabs the side of the tub, and then [[Characters/SupernaturalDemons Abaddon]] stands up in the tub inhabiting the naked restored body of [[Characters/SupernaturalMenOfLetters Josie Sands]]. Abaddon smiles.

TheTeaser ends with a [[{{Sting}} burst]], and the TitleSequence plays with burning wings and high pitched whine.

Deans walks into the Men of Letters' bunker, and an arrow is shot through the air to lodge in the railing in front of the door. Dean looks down and sees [[Characters/SupernaturalProphets Kevin]] cowering behind an upturned table. Kevin explains that the last couple of days have been rough because the bunker went into lockdown after the sensors went crazy, and he thought the world was ending. Sam enters guiding Crowley who has a bag over his head and a pair of earphones over the bag. Crowley is taken to the dungeon where he is chained to a chair. Dean removes the duct tape over Crowley's mouth, but before Crowley can say more than "hello", Dean punches Crowley in the face. Crowley expects to be tortured, but instead Sam and Dean leave him alone. Kevin is very upset to have Crowley, who has claimed to murder Kevin's mother, [[Characters/SupernaturalOtherHumans Linda Tran]], staying in the bunker with them. Sam and Dean explain that they need Crowley to give them the name of all the demons on earth, and then they kill Crowley. Sam warns Kevin to stay away from Crowley. Dean tells Kevin to check the Angel tablet for information on the spell Metatron used to empty heaven of angels and tells Sam to check the internet for supernatural activity. Dean starts calling other hunters to fill them in on the fallen angels.

Abaddon, now dressed in black with a leather jacket, is addressing 4 demons in the abandoned house where she was resurrected. These demons include the demon who restored her vessel (who we find out is named [[Characters/SupernaturalDemons Jason]]), a blonde woman in a beige suit and pearl earrings, a man in a suit with a receding hairline, and an elderly woman in a sweater. Abaddon tells them that Crowley is dead and she will be Hell's new leader. She promises to conquer not only hell, but earth and the fallen angels, instead of making deals like Crowley. The eyes of the demon in the elderly woman flash red, revealing she is a crossroad demon, when Abaddon insults her choice of meat suit. The crossroad demon challenges Abaddon saying she needs to prove that Crowley is dead and goes on to add that she never thought much of the Knights of Hell. Abaddon grabs her by the neck, and the crossroad demon smokes out of the elderly woman. Abaddon tells the disappearing crossroad demon to go to Hell and tell them Abaddon is coming.

Dean is on the phone with [[Characters/SupernaturalHunters Irv Franklin]], a hunter and acquaintance of [[Characters/SupernaturalHunters Bobby Singer]]. Dean warns Irv about the fallen angels and tells him how to use burning holy oil against them. Irv seems to take the news of heaven's exiles in stride and reminds Dean that weird is nothing new, starting to tell Dean about hunting werewolf Siamese twins in Canada with Bobby.

Three Navy petty officers at the Navy Base in Coronado, California, are on a weekend pass and get on to a public bus. The other passengers already on the bus are Jason and the 2 other demons who Abaddon addressed. Their eyes flash black, and the bus fills with black smoke that exits their mouths and enters the mouths of the soldiers. The soldiers' eyes now flash black while the demons' previous meat suits are slumped over in their seats. The bus driver looks back at the passengers and is revealed to be Abaddon. She says, "Now that is more like it."

A young woman is bent over the motor of an old Volkswagen beetle on the side of a road, when a man in a white van pulls up beside her. The man offers her a lift, and as the woman grabs her backpack out of her car, the viewers see the man in the van expose the fangs of a vampire. After the woman gets into the van, the van starts to rock from side to side and sounds of a struggle are heard. Blood splatters on the windshield. The door to the van opens, and the beheaded body of the vampire falls out. The woman gets out of the van holding a knife covered in blood. Jason appears beside the van and tells the woman, "Nice hunting". Another demon possessing a blonde soldier sneaks up behind the woman and puts a bag over her head.

Sam and Dean detect odd weather patterns and cattle deaths surrounding Coronado, California. They arrive as the military police are investigating the abandoned bus with 3 bodies inside in front of the Navy base. Sam and Dean claim to be Agents Stark and Banner from the FBI. However, [[Characters/LawEnforcement Sergeant Miranda Bates]] is unimpressed as the FBI has no jurisdiction in a crime committed on a military base. When she insists on talking to their supervisor, Dean takes out his cell phone and dials Kevin. Kevin tries to pose as am FBI supervisor, but when he can tell this is not working, he starts typing on his computer. He find some embarrassing photos of the sergeant in Cabo last June and threatens to send them to her supervising officer if she does not cooperate with the agents. A chagrined Sergeant Bates relents. Sam and Dean examine the bodies on the bus and realize these are ex-meat suits, who have old fatal wounds they received while they were possessed. Sergeant Bates shows them the security footage of the soldiers leaving the bus. Sam pauses the video and zooms in on a figure whom they recognize as Abaddon.

On the outskirts of Eugene, Oregon, in a neighborhood evacuated after a chemical company spill, Jason is punching a hunter named [[Characters/SupernaturalHunters Pete]] while he asks Pete where the Winchesters are. Abaddon realizes this is getting them nowhere, so she places a noose around Pete's neck and continues the interrogation while he is dangling in the air. Back in the bunker, one of Dean's phones in a box of cell phones starts to ring. Kevin answers the phone, and when Abaddon asks who he is, he answers, "I'm nobody." Abaddon asks that he deliver a message to the Winchesters. A frantic Kevin calls Sam with the message, a set of coordinates ([[https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=44.053051,+-123.127860&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x54c11e7fa74d7551:0x2f16b62d36bca43c,44.053051,+-123.127860&gl=us&ei=ByNvUtGxK4v-4AOy8ICgBQ&ved=0CCsQ8gEwAA 44.053051 by -123.127860]]) and two names (Irv Franklin and [[Characters/SupernaturalHunters Tracy Bell]]). Dean defines Irv as a friend, but does not know who Tracy is. Sam finds the coordinates correspond to a spot in Eugene, Oregon. Kevin says that the lady told him that they were hunters and if Sam and Dean did not save them, she would kill them. Kevin asks who the lady was, and Dean says she is the bad guy. Dean then asks Kevin to start researching a way to kill a Knight of Hell. Sam and Dean realize this is a trap, but agree they have no choice but to try to rescue Irv and Tracy.

Crowley, sitting alone in the dungeon, starts to replay events from his attempted cure over and over in his mind until he starts hyperventilating. Crowley hears Kevin getting some files from the archives in room 7b. He calls out to Kevin, taunting Kevin until Kevin enters the dungeon. Kevin asks Crowley how to kill a Knight of Hell. Crowley offers to kill Abaddon if Kevin lets him go. Kevin does no fall for this, but then Crowley asks Kevin why he really came to the dungeon. Crowley goes on to ask Kevin how he knows his mother is really dead, and Kevin punches Crowley. When Crowley continues to mock Kevin, Kevin looks at a wall of the dungeon covered in blades and other weapons.

Sam and Dean find Irv and Tracy gagged and tied to chairs in a diner in the abandoned neighborhood in Eugene, Oregon. After making Irv and Tracy drink a shot of holy water, Sam and Dean untie them. Dean assesses the weapons they have while Sam notes that the demons are approaching the diner, and are carrying assault rifles. Irv asks Dean what the next play is, but before Dean answers the scene switches to show Jason and one of the other soldier demons walking up to the diner. They hear Dean's voice from inside the diner shout, "Come and get it, you dicks!". The demons burst into the diner with their guns ready and find a recording of Dean's voice playing on a smartphone propped against a napkin holder on a table littered with empty cans and beer bottles in the middle of the empty diner. Outside the diner, Dean says they need to flank the demons. He directs Sam and Tracy to go right, and Irv and he will go left. However, Tracy wants nothing to do with Sam because her parents were killed by a demon who was celebrating after [[Recap/SupernaturalS04E22LuciferRising Sam released Lucifer from his cage]]. Sam ends up going with Irv, and Dean is with Tracy.

In the dungeon of the bunker, Kevin drops a large bloodied hammer on the floor. Crowley has fresh blood running down his hands, but continues to bate Kevin by saying that Kevin's mother is still alive and is being horribly tortured. Crowley says that if Kevin let's him go, they can find Kevin's mother. When Kevin seems unmoved, Crowley tries to convince Kevin that the Winchester's are only using Kevin and do not care about him.

As Irv and Sam approach the diner, Irv asks Sam to give him Ruby's knife so that Irv can take on the demons alone while the others escape. Sam points out that this plan is suicidal, but Irv says it is what he deserves. Irv explains that Abaddon captured him while he was sloppy in a bar, and he ended up giving up Tracy and Pete when she tortured him. While a tearful Irv vows to take on the demons, a sniper on the roof of the diner shoots Irv through the heart. The sniper continues to fire on Sam who runs into the diner where Jason and one of the other demons overpower him. The demon who was firing from the roof comes down and also joins in the fight.

Tracy and Dean's approach to the diner is halted when Abaddon appears and punches Dean in the face. Tracy shoots Abaddon in the chest 6 times, but an unfazed Abaddon lifts her shirt to reveal a Kevlar vest protecting her from the Devil's Trapped bullets. Dean takes a flask from an inner pocket in his jacket and flings holy water in Abaddon's face. While Abaddon is distracted, Dean gives Tracy his keys and tells her to go to the Impala for more supplies. Dean tries to stab Abaddon with an angel blade, but Abaddon knocks the blade away and forces Dean to his knees. Abaddon explains that she wants Crowley or whatever is left of him. She promises to kill Dean quickly if he tells her where Crowley is, but says that if Dean does not tell her, she will possess Dean after peeling of his anti-possession tattoo.

Inside the diner, Jason slams Sam against the wall and knocks him out. Sam's eyes open glowing blue as [[Characters/SupernaturalAngels Ezekiel]] reveals himself. Ezekiel in Sam's body glows with a white light and the shadows of his somewhat straggly wings are seen. The light fills the diner along with a buzzing noise until it builds to an explosion that blows out the windows of the diner. Abaddon sees the explosion and is surprised to see an angel is present. She lifts Dean by his neck and throws him through the window of a department store before disappearing. Dean picks himself up and goes into the diner where he finds Ezekiel in Sam's body cutting the throat of an unconscious demon with Ruby's knife. Ezekiel explains that he was protecting Sam, and that Sam was knocked unconscious and would not remember what happened. He used the knife on the demons so Sam would not know an angel was involved. Dean admits the guilt he feels for the deaths caused by the demons who remain on earth [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E23TheSacrifice because he talked Sam out of closing the gates of Hell]]. Ezekiel tries to assure Dean that his actions were to protect his brother and were done out of love. Sam wakes up against the wall of the diner as Dean is packing up the duffel bag of demon hunting supplies. Dean lets Sam believe Dean killed all the demons himself. Tracy pulls up in the Impala, and the three of them drive off.

Sam and Dean get back to the bunker with a bucket of chicken and a bottle of prune juice. When Kevin doesn't answer their calls, Sam and Dean rush to the dungeon where they find Crowley with new wounds and more blood covering him. Crowley gives Sam and Dean the name of two demons, Martin Hayward and Brandon Favors, which he says is payment for the entertainment Kevin provided while they were gone. Dean finds Kevin leaving the bunker with a backpack. Kevin says Crowley told him that his mother is alive. Dean says Kevin can not trust Crowley and that it is too dangerous for Kevin outside the bunker. Kevin says Dean just wants him to stay because he is useful, but Dean tells Kevin that he wants him to stay because he is family and they would die for him. This convinces Kevin to stay. After Kevin goes to sleep in a back room, Dean joins Sam in the library as Sam is researching the two outed demons. Dean pours Sam and himself a drink of whiskey. When Sam mentions that Tracy was not wrong in her assessment of him, Dean tells him that he has helped more people than he has hurt. Dean says the past is gone, and toasts the present. He then asks Sam how he is feeling. Sam says he feels good and goes on to say he does not remember when he was as happy as he is now. Dean looks uncomfortably away from Sam as he agrees that things have never been better.

!Tropes appearing in this episode:

* ActionGirl: Tracy may be young, but she is already a bad ass hunter in cowboy boots.
* AmbiguousSyntax: While Dean seems to understand what Ezekiel means, there are multiple interpretations of the line "But it is why I said yes." Ezekiel may mean that it was the brothers' love that made Ezekiel say yes to helping to heal Sam. However, Ezekiel may have meant that Dean's love is why Sam said yes to ending the trials or why Sam said yes to allowing Dean help Sam when he was dying which resulted in Ezekiel possessing Sam. If Ezekiel uses "I" when discussing Sam's motivations, it also suggests there may be some interconnection which is forming between Ezekiel and Sam that goes beyond the healing and Ezekiel's access to Sam's memories.
* AndIMustScream: Abaddon tells Dean what it will be like when she takes him as a meat suit.
-->'''Abaddon:''' It can get worse. Trust me. 'Cause once I'm on top, [[ForcedToWatch I'll make you watch]]. And [[DemonicPossession I'll use your body]].

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: The officers investigating the bus crime scene are wearing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Army_Combat_Uniform Army Combat Uniforms (ACU),]] US Army patches, and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_Police_Corps_%28United_States_Army%29 Military Police (MP)]] armbands. There is also a black van at the scene with a label saying "Coroner" that says "US Navy Military Police" on the door. Only, the Navy does not have Military Police. Law enforcement on a Navy base is handled by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master-at-Arms#United_States_Navy masters-at-arms ([=MAs=]).]]

* AssShove[=/=]OrificeInvasion: Abaddon says that when she possesses Dean she will not enter through his mouth but instead will "blow smoke up [his] ass".

** There is another ad on the bus for [[http://www.tgifridays.com/ Biggerson's restaurant and bar.]] Biggerson's was [[RunningGag previously seen]] in [[Recap/SupernaturalS03E03BadDayAtBlackRock "Bad Day At Black Rock" (S03, Ep03)]], [[Recap/SupernaturalS05E14MyBloodyValentine "My Bloody Valentine" (S05, Ep14)]], [[Recap/SupernaturalS06E06YouCantHandleTheTruth "You Can't Handle The Truth" (S06, Ep06)]], [[Recap/SupernaturalS07E03TheGirlNextDoor "The Girl Next Door" (S07, Ep03)]], [[Recap/SupernaturalS07E09HowToWinFriendsAndInfluenceMonsters "How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters" (S07, Ep09)]], [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E19TaxiDriver "Taxi Driver" (S08, Ep19)]], and [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E21TheGreatEscapist "The Great Escapist" (S08, Ep21)]].
* BlatantLies: When Dean is confronted by Sergeant Bate's demand to talk to his supervisor, Dean hesitates for a second, pulls out his cell phone, and dials Kevin, hoping Kevin will pick up on what he needs to do. This almost doesn't work when the Sergeant realizes Kevin is JustAKid.
* BlindfoldedTrip: Sam and Dean put a black bag over Crowley's head and a pair of headphones over the bag before bringing him into the bunker.
* BloodMagic: Jason cuts his forearm and uses his blood to restore Abaddon's vessel.
* BodySurf: The demons following Abaddon upgrade from their previous meat suits to Navy soldiers.
* BoundAndGagged:
** Crowley has [[DuctTapeForEverything duct tape]] over his mouth, a locked collar with engraved hex work, and handcuffs on in the Impala's trunk, which has a Devil's Trap drawn on the lid. Once inside the dungeon in the bunker, the duct tape was removed, but he is shackled to a chair with chains between cuffs on his hands and his feet in the middle of a Devil's Trap.
** Tracy and Irv are gagged with their hands tied behind their backs.
* BrandX: Dean brings in a bucket of chicken from Sandy's Chicken. [[ContinuityNod Bobby brought Dean]] a bucket of Sandy's Chicken in [[Recap/SupernaturalS02E22AllHellBreaksLoosePartTwo "All Hell Breaks Loose, Part Two" (S02, Ep22)]].
* BreakThemByTalking: Crowley tries this with Kevin.
* BrickJoke: When Dean arrives at the bunker, Kevin tells Dean he is "pretty backed up". When Dean returns to the bunker at the end of the episode, he has a bottle of prune juice.
* BrokenAngel: Ezekiel's wings are not as full and majestic as Castiel's were, and there seem to be patches of missing feathers. This may be a consequence of Ezekiel's injury during the fall.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Dean explains Castiel's new state to Sam.
-->'''Sam:''' So, what Cas is human?
-->'''Dean:''' Ish. I mean he's got no grace, no wings, no harp, no whatever the hell else he had.
* BulletProofVest: Once the demons possessing soldiers are inside the evacuated city, they wear bullet proof vests over their uniforms, which seems odd since demons can only be killed by bullets from [[OneHitKill The]] [[CoolGuns Colt]] [[note]] and possibly bullets made from melted down angel blades[[/note]]. But, Abaddon must have warned them about the Devil's Trapped bullets.
-->'''Abaddon after being repeatedly shot in the chest by Tracy:''' Nice grouping. [Lifts shirt to reveal bulletproof vest.] Kevlar. [[KryptoniteProofSuit Beats magic bullets]]. I love the future.

* TheConfidant: Dean can not tell Sam about Ezekiel, and so instead he ends up confessing his doubts about his decision to Ezekiel.

* ConjoinedTwins[=/=]CreepyTwins: One werewolf is bad, but werewolf Siamese twins is just weird.
* TheConqueror: Abaddon's ideal for the ruler of hell, as opposed to Crowley who was a crossroad demon.
-->'''Abaddon:''' He's a salesman. A king fights. A king conquers. A king does more than sit around reading contracts.
* ContinuityNod:
** Sam and Dean discuss Castiel's loss of grace and the fallen angels from [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E23TheSacrifice "The Sacrifice" (S08, Ep23)]]. They also discuss Castiel's phone call from a payphone in Colorado and Dean keeping Crowley in the trunk of the Impala in [[Recap/SupernaturalS09E01IThinkImGonnaLikeItHere "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here" (S09, Ep01)]].
** Sam discusses Crowley breaking down during the cure in [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E23TheSacrifice "The Sacrifice" (S08, Ep23)]]. Crowley tries to blow this off, but seems to have been affected by these events and has {{flashback}}s of the cure.
** Dean recalls Sam lighting Abaddon's meat suit on fire in [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E23TheSacrifice "The Sacrifice" (S08, Ep23)]]. Dean also recalls beheading Abaddon in [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E12AsTimeGoesBy "As Time Goes By" (S08, Ep12)]].
** Abaddon sends coordinates in her message to Sam and Dean. John Winchester often communicated to his sons using coordinates, and Bobby's numbers that he wrote on Sam's hand while he was dying were a set of coordinates.
** Dean has bullets with Devil's traps carved into them to paralyze the demons. Henry Winchester showed his grandsons this technique in [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E12AsTimeGoesBy "As Time Goes By" (S08, Ep12)]].
** We see Dean's anti-possession tattoo which was first shown in [[Recap/SupernaturalS03E12JusInBello "Jus In Bello" (S03, Ep12)]] and is based on the symbol on the amulets Bobby gave the brothers in [[Recap/SupernaturalS02E14BornUnderABadSign "Born Under a Bad Sign" (S02, Ep14)]].
* CoolSword: Dean tries to stab Abaddon with an Angel blade.
* CosyCatastrophe: Despite the fallen angels and chaos in hell, Sam and Dean are more settled then we have ever seen them. Sam says he is happier then he has been for a long time, but Dean is uncomfortable with the situation.
-->'''Sam:''' Honestly, um, I feel better than I have in a long time. I mean, I realize it's crazy out there, and we have trouble coming for us, but I look around and I see friends, and family. I am happy with my life, for the first time in... forever. - I-I am, I really am. It's just, things are... things are good.
-->'''Dean:''' [[BadLiar Never better.]]
* CrazyPrepared: Dean came ready to fight demons. He has [[KillItWithWater holy water]], [[DepletedPhlebotinumShells bullets with Devil's traps]] carved into them, [[CoolSword angel swords]], and even an angel who can smite the demons.
-->'''Dean:''' Alright, we got Jesus juice, guns loaded with Devil's Trapped bullets—shoot a demon, you put 'em on lockdown. The angel blade works...
* CurbStompBattle: Ezekiel utterly obliterates ''three'' demons singlehandedly.
* CynicismCatalyst: Tracy [[ForcedToWatch watched]] a demon kill her parents.
* DealWithTheDevil: While Crowley was King of Hell, the emphasis was put on making deals.
-->'''Abaddon:''' And that's the problem. Deals. We're paying for what we should be taking.
* DeathSeeker[=/=]RedemptionEqualsDeath: Irv wants to die so the other hunters can escape as he feels guilty about breaking and giving Abaddon information, but he does not get the chance.
-->'''Irv:''' I'm going in there alone. I'll buy you as much time as I can.
-->'''Sam:''' Irv, that's death.
-->'''Irv:''' Yeah, well, it's what I've got coming. It's my fault, Sam. I was... in some dive and [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy I was sloppy]], and [[ButLiquorIsQuicker lonely]], and I met some girl. And next thing I know, I'm [[ChainedToABed strapped to some bed]], and she's [[TortureAlwaysWorks twisting things that ain't supposed to be twisted]].
* DecoyDamsel: Tracy pretends to be quite helpless with her car broken down by the side of the road so that the vampire would offer her a ride.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Tracy is cold to Sam when he helps rescue her because of Sam's role in freeing Lucifer. Over the course of the episode she seems to gain some respect for him as a fellow hunter.
* DestinationDefenestration: Abaddon throws Dean through the window of a department store containing two mannequins.

-->'''Dean:''' Look, you wanna be pissed off at Sam, that's fine, I get it. But if you wanna go after somebody, you make sure that they got black eyes. Gotta know who the real monsters are in this world, kid.
* DoingResearch: Kevin initially was studying the Angel Tablet to find out how to undo Metatron's spell, but then Dean asks him to find out what he can about the Knights of Hell. While Kevin is going through the files in the archives, he hears Crowley and can't resist going into the dungeon.
* DontComeAKnockin: Once Tracy gets into the van, the camera zooms in on a BumperSticker which says, [[CantYouReadTheSign "If this van's rockin', don't bother knockin]]". The van starts to rock on squeaking wheels as grunts and moans are heard. But this is a SubvertedTrope, as she is beheading the vampire instead of being sexually assaulted.
* DramaticDeadpan: When Dean tells Irv about the fallen angels, Irv responds with a flat "Huh. That's a wrinkle." When Dean tells him to torch the angels with holy oil, Irv says, "Okay. Criminy."

* FateWorseThanDeath: Crowley claims that Kevin's mother is suffering in this manner.

* FBIAgent: Sergeant Bates refers to the FBI as "feeb", which is derogatory term used for the FBI by other law enforcement agencies and is short for feeble minded.

-->'''Tracy:''' Being a hunter.
-->'''Dean:''' Being human.
* FirstLawOfResurrection: Abaddon could have easily come back in a new vessel, but [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0435509/ Alaina Huffman]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse as Abaddon]] has been [[PanderingToTheBase popular with the viewers]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Possibly, as Dean and Sam are keeping Crowley since he might [[ChekhovsGunman turn out to be useful later on.]]
* FreudianExcuse: Crowley tries this to gain Kevin's trust.
-->'''Crowley:''' What's on your mind, Kevin? You can tell me. We're friends!

* FriendOrFoe: Kevin shoots an arrow at Dean before he realizes who he is.

-->'''Ezekiel:''' I am. - But I suppose that is what a bad guy would say.

-->'''Crowley:''' Please. Your little plan to have me stew in my own delicious juices... pathetic.

They are wearing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniforms_of_the_United_States_Navy Navy Working Uniform]] with a gold service unit patch over their right pocket and are carrying black duffel bags, but walk by two officers in [[HelloSailor Summer White Service Uniforms]] carrying white briefcases. According to the collar insignia, Jason possesses a petty officer, second class. The other two possessed soldiers were a petty officer, first class and a petty officer, third class.
-->'''Soldier:''' So, this is your first weekend pass into town, right? So I set it all up. Jamie's waiting at the bar and has a thing for men in uniform.

* HandSignals:
** When Sam asks Dean what happened to Crowley, Sam says, "You, uh..." He then draws his finger across his neck and clicks his tongue to indicate killing Crowley.
** Later when Dean is on the phone with Kevin, Sam points at Dean then himself and then gives a thumbs up, silently asking Dean if they are good to go.
* HearingVoices: The {{flashback}} to the events in [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E23TheSacrifice "The Sacrifice" (S08, Ep23)]] starts with Crowley hearing the voices of Sam, Dean, and himself, but the dialogue runs over each other and may be whispered or have an [[FlashbackEffects echo effect]]. This is accompanied by dramatic music and [[PsychoStrings screeching strings]].

* HighAltitudeInterrogation: Abaddon hangs Pete by the neck from a rope to get information.

-->'''Sergeant:''' How old are you?
-->'''Kevin:''' Old enough. And I'm with the FBI, so you have to do what I say, or...
* ImpostorExposingTest: A shot of holy water.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Crowley is starting to be more pathetic than truly frightening although he is still extremely manipulative as Kevin finds out.
* {{Infodump}}: Sam asks [[MrExposition Dean]] about recent events as they sit on a picnic table in the teaser.
* InSeriesNickname:
** In Crowley's {{flashback}} to his cure in [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E23TheSacrifice "The Sacrifice" (S08, Ep23)]], he calls Sam "Moose".

* IShallTauntYou: Crowley goads Kevin into coming into the dungeon.
-->'''Crowley:''' That's right, run. It's what you do. I understand, I do. You're, what's the word? - Weak. -- Hiya, Kev.
* ItsAllMyFault: Dean blames himself for the evil perpetuated by the demons on earth, because he talked Sam out of closing the gates to Hell.
-->'''Dean:''' Yeah, it's just that, uh... this is on me. I was the one who talked Sam out of boarding up Hell. Okay? So every demon deal, every kill that they make... well, you're looking at the person who let it happen.
* ItsWhatIDo: Irv says weird is what hunters do.
-->'''Irv:''' Hell, Deano, weird's what we do.
* JurisdictionFriction: Dean and Sam run into trouble at the bus crime scene because even real FBI agents wouldn't have any sway in a military case, unless the military requested their help. Kevin gets around this by blatantly {{blackmail}}ing the military police officer who Dean calls a "local badge".
-->'''Sergeant Miranda Bates:''' Listen, kid, I don't have to do anything. And I don't take orders from the Feeb. So unless you can give me one good reason you got a couple of pretty-boy agents poking around my crime scene, I'm gonna put them in cuffs and spank your ass raw, understand?
* KeepingTheEnemyClose: Dean and Sam bring Crowley ''inside'' their elaborately warded bunker, which given Abaddon's plans may turn out being really lucky for Crowley
* KeepingSecretsSucks: Dean has trouble agreeing with Sam, when Sam tells him he is happy. Dean looks away from Sam. The camera pulls away to show Dean and Sam on different sides of the table with a column in the background dividing the shot of the two brothers, which emphasizes how Dean's deception has isolated him from his brother.

* KilledOffForReal: Dean asks Kevin to stop working on Metatron's spell and start trying to find a way to permanently kill a Knight of Hell.
* KillItWithFire: Dean advises Irv that if he meets an angel, he should "torch his ass with holy oil". Holy oil is a rare oil that Castiel brought from Jerusalem, and the brothers stored the oil in bottles in the Impala's trunk. The Winchesters [[ContinuityNod first learned]] about it from Castiel in [[Recap/SupernaturalS05E03FreeToBeYouAndMe "Free To Be You And Me" (S05, Ep03)]]. Since then it seems that holy oil has become less rare and more well known in the hunter community.

* KungFoley: The squeaking tires of the van sound like the standard squeaky spring sound effect used to indicate vigorous activity on a mattress. There are also the punching noises when the demon is torturing Pete and later when Dean and Sam fight Abaddon and the other demons.
* KungShui: Sam's fight with the demons in the diner breaks a lot of dishes and Sam's head splinters the wall. And that's before Ezekiel blows out all the windows.
* LetsSplitUpGang:
-->'''Dean:''' Alright. We gotta flank [[UsefulNotes/NavySeals SEAL team]] douche in there, so, uh, Irv, you and me will go left, and Sam, you and Tracy go right.

* ManipulativeBastard: After Kevin does not buy Crowley's offer to help kill Abaddon, Crowley starts to create doubt about whether Kevin's mother is dead and whether the Winchesters care about Kevin.
-->'''Kevin:''' You killed my mom!
-->'''Crowley:''' Did I? - I mean, are you sure? [[NeverFoundTheBody Did you ever see her body?]] I mean, how can you be sure she's dead?
* ManlyTears: Irv becomes tearful as he tells Sam about how he gave Abaddon the names of other hunters. Kevin has tears streaming down his face when Dean tells him he is family.
* MeatPuppet: Whether Josie Sands' consciousness was restored along with her body is not addressed. Abaddon may have possessed an EmptyShell as [[Recap/SupernaturalS04E09IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer Ruby did]] or Josie may still be [[FateWorseThanDeath trapped helplessly in her body]] unable to stop Abaddon.
* MetallicarSyndrome: The Impala is parked right in front of the entrance to the secret underground bunker.
* MetaphoricallyTrue: Dean may not have outright lied, but he certainly misrepresented his role in killing the demons to Sam.
-->'''Sam:''' You killed three demons? Alone?
-->'''Dean:''' I took 'em by surprise. [[NonAnswer Got a little messy, I got a little lucky.]] Oh, and, uh, [[BadassBoast I'm awesome]], so there's that.
-->'''Sam:''' Jeez. [[BigBrotherWorship You are pretty damn awesome.]]
* MilitariesAreUseless: The Navy soldiers saw the demons' eyes flash, but were helpless and easily possessed.
* MissingMissionControl: Dean does not call Garth and ask him to pass on the information about the fallen angels to the other hunters. Dean also does not call Garth when they need someone to impersonate their supervisor at the FBI. Garth was said to be missing in [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E21TheGreatEscapist "The Great Escapist" (S08, Ep21)]] and has [[PutOnABus not been heard of since]].
* MonochromePast: When Crowley sees himself yelling during the {{flashback}} to [[Recap/SupernaturalS08E23TheSacrifice "The Sacrifice" (S08, Ep23)]], the scenes are shown in black and white.

* MundaneSolution: Abaddon, a Knight of Hell, overcomes the Devil's Trapped bullets with a bullet proof vest.
* MyGreatestFailure: Sam still has not forgiven himself for releasing Lucifer, but Dean tells him [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre he has done more good than bad]].
-->'''Sam:''' It's just... what Tracy said about me, she wasn't wrong.
-->'''Dean:''' Sam, listen to me. You have helped a hell of a lot more people than you have hurt.
* NakedOnRevival: Abaddon emerges from the tub nude. There are a [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished few smudges of dirt on her hand and face]] but her [[WakeupMakeup makeup, nail polish, and hair are perfect]].
* NeckLift: Abaddon grabs the crossroad demon who possessed an old woman by the neck, but the crossroad demon smoked out of that meat suit. Later Abaddon lifts Dean by his neck and throws him through a window.
* NeverFoundTheBody: The Winchesters thought that Abaddon's vessel, Josie Sands' body, was done for when it was burnt in holy oil and Abaddon smoked out. But, they did not keep track of what happened to the body. The Grandma crossroad demon also points out to Abaddon that they are not sure Crowley is dead, and Crowley asks Kevin if he saw his mother's body.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: Dean interrupts Irv when he starts to talk about a case he worked with Bobby in Saskatoon. Evidently, Bobby told the same story every time he drank Labatt's.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Tracy blames Sam for her parents deaths, as the demon who killed them was celebrating Lucifer's freedom.
* TheNicknamer: Irv refers to the eldest Winchester as Deano. This nickname [[InSeriesNickname was also used]] by Meg in [[Recap/SupernaturalS05E10AbandonAllHope "Abandon All Hope..." (S05, Ep10)]]. This is also a FanNickname often used on ''Website/TelevisionWithoutPity''.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Bobby and Irv worked a case involving [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] [[ConjoinedTwins Siamese twins]].
* NominalImportance: When Dean addresses the hunter on the phone as Irv, GenreSavvy viewers may have realized [[TheLawOfConservationOfDetail Irv had a greater role to play]].

Irv met Tracy hunting a shifter in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacramento,_California Sacramento, California.]] Sergeant Bates did a body shot while wearing a sombrero off a a guy wearing nothing but a Luchador mask in [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabo_San_Lucas Cabo, Mexico.]]
* NoPeripheralVision: When Tracy gets out of the van, she turns and walks right into one demon and does not notice the other demon behind her.
* TheNthDoctor: SubvertedTrope. Even though Abaddon's previous vessel was assumed to be destroyed when she was doused in burning holy oil, Abaddon does not return in a new body.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Tracy uses this to hunt the vampire.
-->'''Vampire:''' Need some help?
-->'''Tracy:''' Um, yeah, I-I don't know, I think [[BuffySpeak the thingy]] broke.

* OrgasmicCombat: While Tracy is fighting and beheading the vampire in the van, we hear her grunting and moaning.
* OverrideCommand: Kevin proposes that opening the door to the bunker from the outside reset the system.

-->'''Dean:''' Yeah, okay. [[SureLetsGoWithThat Let's go with that.]]
* PartyScattering: Sam and Dean discuss the fact that Castiel landed in Colorado while they were in New York.
-->'''Sam:''' Where'd he crash land?
-->'''Dean:''' [[Recap/SupernaturalS09E01IThinkImGonnaLikeItHere Called me from a payphone in Longmont, Colorado.]] I told him just to make for the bunker.
-->'''Sam:''' You think he can handle a road trip like that?

* PercussiveTherapy:
** Dean lets out some of his frustration by punching Crowley in the face.
-->'''Dean after punching Crowley:''' Ah. Never get tired of doing that.

-->'''Crowley after Kevin put down a bloodied large hammer:''' There. Now that you've felt your feels, maybe we can talk.
* PortentOfDoom: Sam and Dean follow the signs of demon activity to the Naval base.
-->'''Dean:''' Between the stink, the [[AStormIsComing freak thunderstorms]], and [[AliensStealCattle every cow dead]] within three miles, I'll take demons for $1000, Alex.
* PossessionBurnOut: The 3 meat suits left on the bus die. They had received fatal wounds long ago while possessed by the demons.
-->'''Sam:''' Every one of these bodies has a fatal wound, or two, or three, but they're all old.
-->'''Dean:''' So we're looking at meatsuits? The bodies took a licking, and the demons inside kept them ticking.
* PowerGivesYouWings: When Ezekiel reveals himself to take on the demons, the shadows of his wings are visible.

* PrimalFear: When Dean finds out that the neighborhood they are in was contaminated by a chemical spill, he covers his crotch with his hand.
* ProductPlacement: There is prolonged close up on Dean's smartphone in a gray [[http://www.amazon.com/OtterBox-Defender-Series-Hybrid-Holster/dp/B008O5BHNW Otterbox Defender case.]] The phone appears to be a white [[EverythingIsAnIpodInTheFuture iPhone 4]], and the screen during the recording is [[YouWannaGetSued a variation on the screen]] for recording voice memos.

-->'''Crowley:''' Gonna make this simple, Kevin. Let me go, and I'll give you back your mother.
* ScopeSnipe: Sam fires 2 shots at the sniper on the roof with his handgun, managing to shatter the scope of the sniper's rifle.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: The crossroad demon who possessed an old woman is GenreSavvy enough to know that if you NeverFoundTheBody you can't assume they are dead and she decides to tell Abaddon what she really thinks of her and the [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Knights of Hell]].
-->'''Old Woman Demon:''' Uhuh. Well, no offense, honey, but we all thought you were dead until, like, a week ago. And what if Crowley does come back?

-->'''Abaddon:''' So maybe you can tell me what the hell happened to Hell. And demons, I mean, you call that a [[MeatPuppet meatsuit]]?

* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: Irv wants to take on the demons all by himself, but does not get the chance.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Crowley.
-->'''Crowley:''' Torture? Brilliant. Can't wait to see Sam in stilettos and a leather bustier really putting the S.A.M into S and M. Honestly boys, what are you going to do to me that I don't do to myself just for kicks every Friday night?

-->'''Abadddon:''' You give me Crowley's head, and I will snap your neck, quick and clean. You won't feel a thing, trust me.
-->'''Dean:''' And if I tell you to get bent?
-->'''Abadddon:''' Oh. Well... you know, I've loved this body since the moment I first saw it. You're the perfect vessel, Dean. You give a girl all sorts of nasty ideas. So go ahead and play hard to get, and I'll peel off this "no demons allowed" tattoo and blow smoke up your ass.
-->'''Dean:''' Oh, well, I gotta tell you, between you and me, it is a horror show up there.
* TrapIsTheOnlyOption: The coordinates Abaddon sends to the Winchesters.

* VillainessesWantHeroes: Abaddon appreciates Dean and wants him as a vessel. Once she has forced him down on his knees, she [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty runs her finger through his hair]] and then opens up his coat and shirt.
-->'''Abaddon:''' So appreciate [[AndYourLittleDogToo you boys coming when I call]]. I think that's what I like most about you Winchesters. You're so obedient. And [[HonorBeforeReason suicidally stupid]]. I like that, too.
-->'''Dean:''' Are we gonna fight or make out? 'Cause I'm getting some real [[BelligerentSexualTension mixed signals]] here.

* WeaponOfXSlaying: While fighting the demons, Sam is carrying [[Recap/SupernaturalS03E01TheMagnificentSeven Ruby's knife]]. This is an ancient demon-killing knife of the Kurds. Most demons die if they are stabbed by this knife, but Knights of Hell, such as Abaddon, are only injured and can survive being stabbed by the knife.

* WeHaveReserves: Crowley argues that the Winchesters do not care about Kevin because of the replaceable nature of Prophets.

-->'''Dean:''' Oh.
* WindowsOfTheSoul: Dean has trouble making eye contact with Ezekiel, showing how uncomfortable he is to have Ezekiel inside of Sam's body.

* WhoAreYou: Abaddon is surprised when someone else answers Dean's phone, but Kevin is happy to remain anonymous.

-->'''Dean:''' Nothing good.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: The Winchester's plans for Crowley.
-->'''Dean:''' He will break. When he does, we'll hold him down while you knife him and then we all go out for ice cream and strippers.
** In order to egg Kevin on, Crowley convinces Kevin that this trope will apply to ''him''. Dean convinces him otherwise, saying that the two of them, Sam and Castiel are "[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming the only family [they] have".]]

** Tracy wants nothing to do with Sam because she blames him for the death of her parents.
-->'''Tracy:''' I watched a demon slaughter my parents. And the whole time it talked about how it was celebrating. Some dumb kid let Lucifer out of his cage.
* YouLookFamiliar: [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0601003/ Carmen Moore,]] who plays Sgt. Miranda Bates, also played a doctor in [[Recap/SupernaturalS05E20TheDevilYouKnow "The Devil You Know" (S05, Ep20)]].
* YouWouldntShootMe: Crowley knows the Winchesters do not intend to cure or kill him.
-->'''Crowley:''' I'm not ''giving'' you anything. Why would I? You have no leverage, darlings. Your not gonna close the gates of hell because you didn't. You're not gonna kill me because you haven't. So, what's left?
