Good God, Y'All

War: Save your protests for your brother. I can see inside your head, and man, it is one-track city in there: blood, blood, blood. Lust. For power. Same as always. You want to be strong again. But not just strong; stronger than everybody. Good intentions. Quick slide to hell, buddy-boy. You feel bad now? Wait 'till you're thigh-deep in warm corpses. 'Cause my friend, I'm just getting started. Showtime for the meatsuits.

Written by Sera Gamble.

Bobby is still in the hospital and quite bitter about being in a wheelchair. When Castiel arrives, Bobby orders him to heal him, but Castiel says he's been cut off from Heaven. He tells Dean that he wants to find God, the only one who can defeat Lucifer. Castiel borrows Dean's pendant, which has the ability to indicate God's presence by glowing brightly. Suddenly, Bobby receives a frantic call from his hunter friend Rufus, who is in a town swarming with demons. Sam and Dean go to the town and can't find Rufus, but instead find Ellen Harvelle. She and Jo have been hunting together and Jo has disappeared like Rufus. When they do find Jo and Rufus, they appear to be possessed by demons—but, strangely, they seem to think Sam, Dean, and the others are the ones possessed. In fact, there are no demons at all. They are instead hallucinations brought about by War, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Sam and Dean hunt him down and cut off his ring finger, because his ring controls the hallucinations. In the end, Sam tells Dean he thinks that they should go their separate ways, and they part.
