* AxCrazy: Whitman Van Ness is a sick bastard. He may hide it well at first glance, but the fact that he’s made a hobby out of killing people and trapping their ghosts in his house out of little more than pleasure, and the disconcerting SlasherSmile that he pulls when consuming O’Connell and while trying to kill Sam and Dean shows just how unhinged the man is.

Sam and Dean get a call from Annie Hawkins, an old hunter friend, asking for help on a case. When they arrive in town, they find out that Annie has disappeared. They trace her last whereabouts to an old abandoned house that is haunted by a powerful ghost. Unknown Unbeknownst to them, the ghost of Bobby is following them around, having tied himself to his old flask that they carry. He finds the house populated by mostly mindless ghosts and the spirit of Whitman Van Ness. Bobby discovers the ghost of Annie and the two try to solve the murders.



------------
* CallBack: Dean's line towards the end of the episode about how ''"everything has an end"'' stems from his day filling in for [[TheGrimReaper Death]] in the episode [[{{Recap/SupernaturalS06E11AppointmentInSamarra}} "Appointment in Samarra"]], where he learned to respect the natural order of life and death.
* CharacterDevelopment: Where Dean has previously resorted to resurrection and seances in past seasons, in this one he speaks to both Jo and Bobby's spirits about the natural order of things after death, likely due to learning just how such imbalances can hurt others last season when making his deal with [[TheGrimReaper Death]].
* DramaticIrony: Bobby tells Dean and Sam they didn't "know" Annie as well as he did. [[GetTheeToANunnery They did, actually,]] and they share an awkward look.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Bobby and Annie discover that, after time, ghosts develop a kind of Alzheimer's and eventually [[DeaderThanDead disintegrate into nothing]]. [[JumpScare Loudly.]]
* HauntedHouse: The Van Ness House.
* InsistentTerminology: ''Fancy lady.''
* InvisibleMainCharacter: Bobby hasn't managed to master the tricks to being a ghost, so he has difficulty alerting the Winchesters to his presence. This is particularly frustrating to him.
* OneSteveLimit: Annie, there was already more than one character named Anna.
