* DaylightHorror: Dean rises from his grave on a bright, sunny afternoon, all the better to showcase the obliterated trees, the shadow of his grave's cross and his isolation. The light is also clearly hurting his eyes.


Hellish screams are heard before Dean wakes up in his coffin. He shouts for help before clawing his way out of a scorched grave surrounded by dead trees. He walks to a gas station and breaks in. In the mirror, he sees that his scars are gone and he has an ominous-looking red handprint on his shoulder. As he robs the store for supplies, the tv and radio come on automatically. As Dean salts the door, he begins to hear a high-pitched ringing that smashes the windows.

As they drive to a psychic friend of Bobby's, Sam says that Lilith tired to kill him after Dean was dragged to hell, but she couldn’t.

Back at their motel, Sam ditches Dean and drives off in the Impala. Dean wakes up to the radio being on and the ringing he heard at the gas station, which causes his ears to bleed. Bobby arrives, and they decided to summon whatever it is that pulled Dean out of hell. Sam, meanwhile, goes to the diner and discovers all the demons with their eyes burned out. Flo attacks him. She says she saw ''it'' and cries that they are all dead before Sam sends her back to hell using his psychic powers. The girl from the hotel shows up, and it turns out she is Ruby. He asks what is going on, and she says she doesn’t know but it is cosmic. Later, Ruby encourages him to tell Dean he’s been using his psychic power and meeting her. She claims she doesn’t want to come between them. Sam says he doesn’t trust her but he’s stopping demons and wants to continue.

Meanwhile, Dean and Bobby surround themselves with every anti-hex, Devil’s trap and weapon they have before summoning Castiel. Bobby starts the summoning. They wait for awhile, then rumbling starts outside. Lights burst and the door opens to reveal [[IconicSequelCharacter a man in a suit and trench coat]]. He calmly walks through every trap, his eyes fixed on Dean. Dean and Bobby shoot him, and he does not react. Dean asks who he is, and Castiel says he’s the one who gripped him tight and raised him from perdition. Dean says thanks before stabbing him with Ruby’s knife. Castiel calmly pulls it from his chest. Bobby tries to behead him, but Castiel puts him to sleep. He says he needs to talk to Dean.

As Dean tends to Bobby, Castiel reveals he’s an Angel of the Lord, which Dean does not believe. Castiel replies that Dean’s problem is that he has no faith, and in shadow massive wings appear behind Castiel. Dean confronts him about Pamela, and Castiel expresses mild regret, saying his true form can be overwhelming. He explains he’s in the vessel of a devout man who prayed for this.
