Free To Be You And Me

Written by Jeremy Carver.

Air Date: September 24, 2009.

Not sure he trusts himself anymore, Sam decides to give up hunting and live a "normal" life. At night, his dead girlfriend Jessica visits him and tells him that people can never change despite their efforts. Dean, intent on stopping the Apocalypse, continues hunting on his own and teams up with Castiel to find the archangel Raphael, as Castiel believes Raphael knows God's location. They find Raphael's vessel and lure him out, but are no closer to finding God, as Raphael believes God is dead. After fighting off fellow hunters who wanted him to drink demon blood in order to exorcise some demons, Sam gets another late-night visit from Jessica, who turns out to be Lucifer disguised as Sam's deceased girlfriend. He says that Nick's body was just Plan B, and that his True Vessel is Sam. He is convinced that, eventually, without any trickery or lies, Sam will agree to be his vessel, although Sam adamantly disagrees.
