This is my take on what couldíve happened at the end of season 3, my very own season finale. My intention was to write this story in a way that it really would seem like an actual episode. I hope you guys like it. I intend to write an alternate season 4 if you guys like this story. All kinds of feedback are highly appreciated.TITLE

: Samuel Colt.STATUS
: With two days before Deanís deal comes due, Ruby shows up with an escape plan, which may represent a lost bigger than the gain.RATING
: Iím not sure about the exact letter that goes here, but the content, language and situations are on the same level that those on the actual TV show.DISCLAIMER

3.16 Whatís Dead Should Stay Dead
At Cold Oak, Jake thrusts a knife into Samís back. Dean runs towards Sam and holds him.
DEAN: NOOOO! SAM!
At the crossroad, Dean is talking to the Crossroad Demon.
CROSSROAD DEMON: Following in Daddy's footsteps. You wanna make a deal: little Sammy back from the dead, and--let me guess-- you're offering up your own soul?
DEAN: All you got to do is bring Sam back.
CROSSROAD DEMON: I'll give you one year, and one year only. But here's the thing: if you try and welch or weasel your way out, then the deal is off, Sam drops dead.
Dean grabs the demon and kisses her to seal the deal.
At the motel room, Samís eyes open wide as he comes back to life.
At the Devilís Gate in Wyoming, Yellow Eyes is holding Dean down.
YELLOW EYES DEMON: Demons can't resurrect people unless a deal is made. But thanks to you, Sammy's back in rotation. How certain are you that what you brought back, is 100% pure Sam? You of all people should know, that's what's dead, should stay dead. Anyway...thanks a bunch. I couldn't have done it without your pathetic, self-loathing, self-destructive desire to sacrifice yourself for your family.
Sam is at the crossroad pointing the Colt at the Crossroad Demon.
SAM: Let Dean out of his deal, right now.
CROSSROAD DEMON: Iíve got a boss like everybody.
SAM: Who holds the contract?
CROSSROAD DEMON: I canít tell you.
Sam shoots the Crossroad Demon.
Sam is at Tammiís house in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.
TAMMI: Thereís a new leader rising in the west. He doesnít like you very much.
At the police station in Monument, Colorado, Lillithís eyes go white as she rises her hand and blows up the place.
RUBY: [voiceover] Her name is Lillith.
At a motel room in Pennsylvania, Bela is crying over the phone.
BELA: I know about your deal, Dean.
Dean is driving the Impala with Sam next to him, heís on the phone.
DEAN: And who told you that?
BELA: [off] The demon that holds it. She holds mine too.
BELA: [off] Her name is Lillith.
Sam and Dean stop the Impala at a deserted road in Massachusetts. Ruby is standing in front of them.
DEAN: So this is Ruby, huh? Sheís a demon, Sam! They want us dead, we want them dead.
At a dinner in Cicero, Ruby and Sam are talking.
RUBY: Yellow eyes had some pretty big plans for you, Sam. You're special. In that Anthony Michael Hall E.S.P. visions kind of way.
SAM: No, that's stuff's not happening anymore.
Sam and Ruby argue at a motel room in Cicero.
RUBY: I want to help you from time to time.
SAM: What could you possiblyÖ?
RUBY: I can help you save your brother.
Sam is sitting in the Impala, talking on the phone, a book in his lap.
BOBBY: [off] You want to break Dean free of that demon deal, you ain't gonna find the answer in no book.
SAM: Then where, Bobby?
BOBBY: Kid, I wish I knew.
Sam and the Trickster a at a motel room.
TRICKSTER: There is a lesson here, that Iíve been trying to drill into that freakish Cro-Magnon skull of yours. This obsession to save Dean, the way you two keep sacrificing yourselves for each other, nothing good comes out of it. Deanís your weakness. The bad guys know it too. Itís gonna be the death of you, Sam.
Dean and Casey are trapped inside a basement in Ohio.
CASEY: I don't see how you and your god, have done such a bang-up job. It's our turn now, and we're gonna do it right this time.
DEAN: Speaking of downstairs... what's it like down there?
CASEY: it's a pit of despair. Why do you think we want to come here?
Dean and Ruby are talking outside a motel in Massachusetts.
DEAN: So all of them, every damn demon, they were all human once?
RUBY: Most of them have forgotten what it means, or even that they were. Thatís what hell is: forgetting who you are. And yes, same thing will happen to you.
DEAN: Thereís no way of saving me from the pit, is there?
On a deserted highway, Dean and Sam are standing by the Impala.
DEAN: I never should have come back, Sam. It wasn't natural. And now look what's come of it. I was dead. And I should have stayed dead.
In Cicero, Indiana, Lisa opens the door of her house.
LISA: If you want to stick around for a while, you're welcome to stay.
DEAN: Your life, this house and a kid, it's not my life. Never will be. Some stuff happened to me recently, and, uh... anyway, a guy in my situation -- you start to think, you know. I'm gonna be gone one day, and what am I leaving behind besides a car? I don't know.
Sam and Dean are at a motel room.
SAM: So you're the guy with nothing to lose now, huh? It's because you're already dead, right? I'm sick and tired of your kamikaze trip. You're scared, Dean. You're scared because your year is running out, and you're still going to Hell, and you're freaked. And this is exactly how you act when you're terrified.
Teaser: Last GoodbyesSam and Dean are staying at a motel room at night. Samís sleeping. Dean is tossing and turning awake, unable to sleep. He hears scratching outside the door. He gets up and cautiously checks outside. Thereís none there.
Dean wanders outside the motel. He keeps wandering until he finds himself at a crossroad. He looks around, looking a bit scared. He turns and finds a woman dressed in black. The same woman the Crossroad Demon possessed the first time he met her.CROSSROAD DEMON:
Hey there, Dean.Dean looks at the demon, with fear in his eyes. He hears a growl. The demon looks down, but thereís nothing there.CROSSROAD DEMON:
Timeís up, sugar.Dean turns around and runs, hearing angry barking sounds behind him. He runs along the empty road until he finds a new path. The demon is there. Heís back at the crossroad again. The dog goes silent. The demon smiles at Dean. Dean starts running again, and the barking resumes, but he ends up back at the crossroad. Once again, he runs, walking out of the road and into the field, trying turn after turn, but always coming back to the crossroad.CROSSROAD DEMON:
Thereís no running away from this, Dean.Finally the barking becomes louder and angrier, Dean turns around and gets knocked down. The barking sounds are replaced by chewing sounds. Dean screams.
Dean is sitting at a couch, looking serious.DEAN:
So thatís why I couldnít stay, I knew I wasnít going to be around much, so it was better if I left.After a moment of silence, Dean stares at the person heís talking to.DEAN:
Say something.The person heís talking to falls on the back of a couch opposite to Dean. Itís Lisa Braeden. Lisa sighs.LISA:
God. This is soÖ God.DEAN:
Your brother died, so you offered up your own soul in order to bring him back, and you got one year to live, which is coming due in a week.DEAN:
That pretty much sums it all up.LISA:
So, you came to say goodbye.DEAN:
It felt like the right thing to do.LISA:
Why did you stay here? Why spend two of your final days here instead of finding a way out of your deal?DEAN:
Iíve tried, Lisa, Iíve tried. But thereís no way out of it.LISA:
Iím gonna miss you, Dean. Benís gonna miss you.DEAN:
I know.Lisaís eyes water.DEAN:
Come on, no tears, alright?Lisa nods, still with watery eyes. Dean stands up.DEAN:
I have to go, or my brother will kill me before my time is up.Lisa chuckles bitterly and stands up too.LISA:
Goodbye, Dean. It was great to get to know you. And Iím glad you came back, even if it was just for a while.Dean and Lisa hug.LISA:
Youíve said goodbye to Ben?Dean nods.LISA:
Goodbye, then.Dean heads to the door, but after he opens it he stops. He turn around as Lisa jumps at him and kisses him.
Dean walks out of the house. Lisa is standing outside the door watching him leave. Dean gets inside the Impala and starts the car. He waves at Lisa. Lisa waves back at him. Suddenly her face distorts, her skin going gray and cracked, eyes empty. She moves her head from left to right and shows fangs and a horrifying face. Then she goes back to normal. Dean stares at her horrified, Lisa seems to notice. Dean smiles unconvincingly and waves again, then leaves. Lisa follows him with her eyes, concerned.
Dean drives for a while until he finds a girl standing right in the middle of the street. Dean stops the car and gets out. The girl looks like sheís in her twenties and is wearing a white, torn dress. She has long black, wet hair, some of it falling on her face and water dripping all over. Sheís standing with her head down but here eyes looking up at Dean. The girlís skin has a light shade of blue and her eyes are red, as if she had been crying for a while.DEAN:
Hey, are you okay?The girl doesnít respond. Dean gets closer.DEAN:
Hey!A car passes by and honks the horn at Dean.DRIVER:
Get out of the road, you idiot!Dean turns to look at the driver, then back at the girl. The girl is gone.
I hope you like it and Iím eager to read your feedback.

| Act I: A Way Out
Clinton, UtahSam walks into a motel room, a brown paper bag in his hand.DEAN:
One week later
Hey there, Sammy!Dean is sitting on the bed, grinning widely.SAM:
Glad to see you too, Sammy.SAM:
How was Cicero?DEAN:
Great, lovely weather.Sam rolls his eyes.SAM:
Was Bobby right? Were there any signs of demonic activity?DEAN:
All the way from Indiana. Looks like those demons are really worried Iím gonna make it out of this alive. [cocky] Guess they know who theyíre dealing with.SAM:
Do you think they followed you here?DEAN:
Nah. Donít think so. It would be a good thing, though, would be so much easier to kill that Lillith bitch if she just dropped by our doorstep.SAM:
Except we donít know how to fight her.DEAN:
Right.Dean falls silent and stares at the floor.SAM:
Hey. I know weíre running out of time, but weíll find a way.DEAN:
Itís two days before I kick it, I think running out of time is a but of an understatement.SAM:
Weíll find a way.DEAN:
Guess this is how you mustíve felt in college, huh? Known about the final paper the whole term and two days before the deadline youíre still in square one.Sam chuckles and sits on the bed besides Dean.SAM:
Glad youíre not letting it bring you down. You just have to keep it that way until we find a way to destroy Lillith.DEAN:
And a way to find her.
A group of nine to ten year old children are playing marbles at a suburban street. A little girl with light brown hair tosses a marble and wins. The girl rises her arms as a sign of victory.
GIRL: Yes! I won again!
The rest of the kids look bummed.
BOY: Not fair, you always win.
An adult couple walks a couple of feet behind the kids.
MOTHER: Sally, time to get back to the house.
GIRL: Yes, mummy.
The girl picks up all her marbles and runs towards the couple. The rest of the kids leave in different directions.
MOTHER: One of the brothers was in Cicero last week, but we lost track.
The couple looks down, ashamed and scared.
MOTHER: That Ruby bitch mustíve given them hex bags to keep me off their trail.
FATHER: Weíll keep looking.
GIRL: No. Youíll lose them again. Itís time we make them come to us.
The girl turns her back on the couple and looks at the street. The other children are heading to their respective houses. A woman comes out of one of them, a boy is heading towards her. The girlís eyes go white, suddenly, a vicious wind starts blowing on the street. The kids run towards their houses. The wind grows stronger, leaves and papers fly all over the street. A light pole is ripped off the ground and flies directly to the mother waiting at the door for her child, killing her.
BOY: [terrified] Mom!
The girl keeps standing in the middle of the street, her hair falling on her face, her eyes still white, the wind gets stronger.
Back in Clinton at night, Dean is at the motel room, packing. Sam walks in.
SAM: Going somewhere?
DEAN: Hey, just got a call from Bobby, looks like heís found Lillith.
SAM: Yeah, where?
DEAN: Malheur, Oregon. Freaky windstorm, three deaths. And according to Bobby, temperature fluctuations and electrical storms all over the county over the past three weeks. Lookís like sheís settled down.
SAM: So weíre just going to Oregon.
DEAN: Weíre not, I am.
SAM: Seriously. You actually expect me to sit here while youíre off to kill Lillith and wait for you to come home? Do you want me to have dinner ready for when you get back?
DEAN: This is my fight, Sam. I donít want you to get killed.
SAM: So, what exactly do you expect to do once you get there? We have no idea of how to kill her, and we have no Colt.
DEAN: Iíll figure something out.
SAM: Dammit, Dean, youíre doing it again, that crap you do whenever youíre scared.
SAM: Figured since youíve got nothing to lose, why not go and jump straight to Lillith, right?
DEAN: And what do you want me to do? Iím dead in two days anyways and Iím not just gonna sit there and wait for it. Dammit, Iím not going down without a fight!
Thereís a knock on the door. Sam gives Dean a this-isnít-over-yet look and heads to the door. Rubyís outside. She makes her way in as she talks.
RUBY: Hey, boys.
Ruby stops when she sees Deanís suitcase.
RUBY: Where are you going?
DEAN: None of your business.
RUBY: So I see youíve heard about Oregon.
The boys donít respond.
RUBY: And you, smart boys, think youíve got what it takes to go against Lillith.
DEAN: Like I said, none of your business.
RUBY: You know this is a trap, right? That Lillith wouldnít actually reveal herself that easily.
The brothers look at each other.
The brothers silence makes her snort in exasperation.
RUBY: You donít stand a chance against her.
DEAN: Like you care.
RUBY: I care!
SAM: If you care so much, why didnít you tell us Lillith holds Deanís contract?
RUBY: So you two could go running right towards her? Yeah, that wouldíve turned out well. Like I said, you donít stand a chance.
SAM: Maybe we do, if you come with us.
RUBY: Those demons know who I am. You can approach Lillith undetected if you keep with you the hex bags I gave you. Me, being with you would only give you guys away.
SAM: Then let us have your knife.
RUBY: A knife. You want to charge Lillith with a knife. Did you two morons grew even more stupid since the last time I saw you? Lillithís not a little girl, you know.
DEAN: Got a better idea there, princess?
RUBY: I may. I know a way out of your deal.
DEAN: Yeah? And how many virgins do we have to kill this time, huh?
RUBY: You need to make a new deal.
SAM: A new deal? With who?
DEAN: Doesnít matter who, noneís making anymore deals here.
RUBY: After I became a demon, after I made it clear which side I was on, a demon approached me. A big player.
SAM: Youíve been working for somebody else this whole time?
RUBY: This demon told me about the coming war, he recruited me.
DEAN: So youíre telling me there are good demons out there, who want to fight on our side.
RUBY: Not all demons want the same, Dean. Iím not trying to pretend weíre all good, or that weíre good at all. If weíre demons, thatís because were not. When he first met me, he didnít understand how I could still remember what itís like to be human, he couldnít, I donít think he understands now. It doesnít matter, whatís important is that heís fighting against Lillithís.
DEAN: Yeah? Why?
RUBY: He knows what will happen if demons take over. It is called hell for a reason, Dean. Up here, itís like heaven to us. If demons win this war, they will make hell on Earth. Most of demons donít see it that way. All they see is a lot of idiotic humans destroying the gift that was given to them, and theyíre not mistaken. But they think theyíll do it right, and thatís where theyíre wrong.
SAM: So this demon is willing to let Dean out of his deal why again?
RUBY: The war thatís coming, we need you alive for it. Both of you.
DEAN: Yeah? So Sam can become the Antichrist you always wanted him to be, am I right?
Sam gives Dean an angry look.
SAM: This deal, how does it work?
RUBY: I know a way you can escape from your deal, a loop in the contract that can get you out.
DEAN: And if I do, Sam dies.
RUBY: Thatís right.
Both brothers give panicked looks at Ruby.
DEAN: You want me to kill my brother so I can live?
RUBY: Then you make a new deal to bring him back.
SAM: But Lillith holds all contracts like this. She wants me dead, remember?
RUBY: Lillith doesnít hold all contracts. Ask your dad.
Sam and Dean look at each other uncomfortably.
RUBY: The demon you made your deal with worked for Lillith, I know someone who doesnít, sheíll give you a deal.
DEAN: And your boss will hold the contract?
RUBY: Heís not my boss, and yes.
SAM: So, what? Dean gets to live for ten more years. Ten years from now, weíll be right where we are now.
RUBY: No, he gets to live for as long as he wants. As long as he keeps hunting, that is. He quits, he dies.
The brothers look at each other again.
RUBY: Think about it, when you make your mind you let me know, but remember, the clockís ticking.
DEAN: Thereís nothing to think. Weíre not doing it.
DEAN: No, no ďDeanĒ. I am not putting my soul for sale again. But youíd love that, wouldnít you?
RUBY: When are you going to start to trust me?
DEAN: Never, because I know sooner or later youíll come to bite us in the ass like the backstabbing bitch you are.
RUBY: Dean, what took you so long? [to Sam] Talk to him. Iíve gotta go.
Ruby turns to the door and leaves. Sam stares at Dean for a long time.
DEAN: I know what youíre thinking, but no, we are not doing this.
SAM: Dean, would you think about it for a second? Itís a way out, itís what weíve been looking for this whole year.
DEAN: Weíre not taking any help from demons, Sam.
SAM: We canít do this by ourselves, if we could, everyone whoís ever made a deal would be still alive.
DEAN: It doesnít solve anything, Sam. You said it yourself: when my deal is due weíll be back where we are.
SAM: Do you plan quitting hunting anytime soon? Because youíve made it pretty clear to me over the past three years that youíre not quitting this life. Ever.
DEAN: Because I donít want to, not because I canít, thereís a difference.
Dean grabs his suitcase and heads to the door.
DEAN: I think Iíll stick with my way, Sammy, I gotta go now, Bobby is waiting for me at the Oregon-Idaho border.
SAM: So youíre taking Bobby with you but not me?
DEAN: Heís just gonna tell me what he knows, Iím going after that bitch alone. Like I said: this is my fight.
SAM: Like Bobby would let you. Or like I would. Weíre in this together, Dean, and youíre not facing Lillith without me.

| Act II: Seeing Things
Oregon-Idaho borderItís dawn. The Impala stops in the middle of an empty highway. Boobyís waiting for them standing outside his car, next to him is Ellen. The boys come out of the Impala.DEAN:
Hey there, boys.Ellen gives Dean a hug.SAM:
Itís nice to see you again, Ellen.ELLEN:
I think we havenít seen you sinceÖELLEN:
[to Bobby] So, Dean says you found Lillith.BOBBY:
Sheís in the suburbs. She has killed three people already: a woman, two children.SAM:
So how do we stop her?DEAN:
We are not doing anything. I am not putting you in harms way because of this.ELLEN:
Lillith has already killed three people. This is a hunt, just like any other.DEAN:
Sheís killed them to lure me to her, I give her what she wants and itís over.SAM:
So, of all times, this is when you decide to believe what Ruby says.ELLEN:
Whoís Ruby?The boys looks down.SAM:
She- Sheís a- Sheís a demon.ELLEN:
A demon you are familiar with, I see.SAM:
She has, ehm, helped us a couple of times. She helped Bobby fix the Colt.ELLEN:
Helping you? Does that mean sheís fighting on our side?DEAN:
Sheís not on anyoneís side, sheís just looking out for herself.SAM:
You donít know that.DEAN:
Yeah, Sam, I do, and so do you, youíre just too blind to see it.ELLEN:
This Ruby, did she tell you anything about what weíre up against?SAM:
Nothing, just that weíre out of our league.BOBBY:
Well, she ainít wrong about that.DEAN:
That might be right, but the fact is that weíre here, on our own, and we need to move fast, before she decides to kill more people just to get to me.ELLEN:
Are you sure this is wise? You just said this is just a trap and weíre walking right into it.DEAN:
What other choice do I have? After today Iím dead anyways.BOBBY:
We better get moving, then. Weíve got less than twenty hours to do this.Bobby and Ellen get inside Bobbyís Chevelle as the brothers head to the Impala. As Dean gets the keys out of his pocket and opens the car door, he glances at Sam. Heís face distorts, his skin going gray and cracked, eyes empty, just like Lisaís face distorted before.DEAN:
Hey, Sammy.Sam looks up.SAM:
Do you mind driving for a while? All this crap about the deal and Lillith is wearing me down.SAM:
[confused] Hum, sure. You would think that being your last day on Earth youíd like to spend some time with your girl.DEAN:
Ha! Very funny.Dean throws the car keys at Sam, who catches them skillfully.
Sam and Dean drive in the Impala following Bobbyís car. Dean is looking absently outside the window as they enter a small town.SAM:
You okay, man?DEAN:
Look, I know you donít want me to say this, but if- I mean if we donít.DEAN:
Whatever youíre going to say, donít say it.SAM:
You know what?DEAN:
What youíre gonna say, I already know.SAM:
Iím sorry, Dean.DEAN:
Donít apologize, none of this is your fault.SAM:
Of course it is.DEAN:
Why, because you died? Because turned out dad was right and I had to keep an eye on you all the time or else youíd get yourself killed? I know you think that, Sam, but youíre wrong. This isnít your fault, I made this decision on my own, and I donít regret it. If I had to go back and do it all over again, then Iíd do it again.SAM:
Maybe youíll have to.DEAN:
Weíve talked about this.SAM:
No, youíve talked about this. Dean, donít you see this is aÖDean suddenly gets alarmed about something he sees outside the window.DEAN:
Shut up.Dean gets his cellphone out of his jacket and dials.DEAN:
Hey, Bobby? Donít go any further, turn right and head to the first motel you see two miles from here, weíll follow.SAM:
Dean, what is it?DEAN:
The townís full of demons.SAM:
What? How do you evenÖDEAN:
Shut up and drive. Not too fast, we donít wanna draw to much attention.Sam speeds and turns left right behind Bobby.
The boys arrive outside a motel in a deserted highway. Bobby and Ellen are already waiting for them. Sam and Dean get out of the car.ELLEN:
What is it, Dean? What happened?DEAN:
Demons, theyíre all over town.ELLEN:
How did you know?DEAN:
I couldÖ I could see them. I could see the faces underneath the bodies.SAM:
How is that even possible?ELLEN:
It must have something to do with youíre deal, right?BOBBY:
Makes sense, youíre practically one of them now.SAM:
So the whole town is possessed?DEAN:
No, not everyone, but the more we drove the more of them I saw, there must be dozens of them surrounding Lillith.BOBBY:
And I bet that ainít the only thing youíve been seeing lately, is it?Sam is seriously concerned now, he looks at Dean with surprise and fear in his eyes, Dean notices.DEAN:
No, I- IíveÖ Some times, the faces, peopleís faces, distort, they look awful, I donít know how to explain it, likeÖ like they donít look human anymore.BOBBY:
Itís known to happen. The closer you get to your deadline, the more of the other side you get to see. Thereís hallucinations, voicesÖSAM:
For how long?DEAN:
A couple of weeks.SAM:
Youíve been seeing demons for two weeks now?DEAN:
No, not demons, Ruby looked normal to me last night. Just hallucinations: distorting faces andÖ and the girl.BOBBY:
I keep seeing this girl, like a ghost, she appears sometimes.SAM:
What does she look like?DEAN:
I donít know, thin, pale, like- like her:Dean points somewhere across the road. The girl Dean saw in Cicero is there, in her white, torn dress, her hair still wet. Just like before, sheís standing with her head down but here red eyes looking up at Dean.SAM:
Wait, I can see her. Is she a ghost?ELLEN:
I donít see anything.BOBBY:
Neither do I.ELLEN:
Boys, what exactly are you looking at?DEAN:
Looks like a ghost.SAM:
But it canít be, why only us can see her?A truck passes by blocking the view of the boys. When the truck is gone, so is the girl.SAM:
What the hell was that?SAM:
Do you know anything, Bobby? Is this supposed to happen when a deal is about to come due?BOBBY:
It canít be related, or else you wouldnít be able to see her too, Sam.DEAN:
So what is it, a case? Canít lost souls find someone else? This is my last day on Earth, damn it!SAM:
I donít think this is a case, you said youíve been seeing her for weeks.DEAN:
I donít know what t think now.ELLEN:
Doesnít matter. Whatís important now is that we need to get ready. If we want to stop Lillith, we better figure out a way to get past those demons.SAM:
Youíre right. Do you think they know weíre here?DEAN:
We drove across the townís main street, not exactly a inconspicuous way to go.BOBBY:
That means Lillithís probably gonna be waiting for us, we better be careful.They all head inside the motel.
Ruby is walking down a street of suburban houses. She looks around cautiously as she walks. Thereís none around. Ruby approaches the window of one of the houses and peeks inside. The house looks deserted.WOMAN:
What do you think youíre doing?Ruby turns around, panicked. A girl in her early twenties is there. She has long, brown, curly hair and blue eyes.RUBY:
I was justÖWOMAN:
She called, the brothers are here. Itís time.The woman turns around and rapidly walks along the street. Ruby follows.RUBY:
Youíre new around here, arenít you?WOMAN:
Whatís your name?WOMAN:
[muttering] BelaÖ? [to Bela] Wait! I know where you can find them.Sam and Dean are inside a motel room. A suitcase is open on the bed, filled with guns and knives. Sam is cleaning a gun while Dean is sharpening a machete.SAM:
You know none of this is gonna work against an army of demons, right?DEAN:
Weíve done it before, Sam.SAM:
Yeah, in a police station, with half a dozen other men. This is different.DEAN:
Hey, if you wanna back down, youíre free to do it.SAM:
Thatís not what Iím saying, Dean, and you know it.The door slams open. Bela is standing there. Sam and Dean jump in surprise. Bela coldly stares at the brothers as she slowly steps inside the room. Sam discretely reaches for a flask of holy water from the backpack on the desk beside him. Bela notices and sends Sam flying with a wave of her hand, pinning him to the wall. She turns at Dean and sends him towards the opposite wall. Bela approaches Sam and takes out a knife.RUBY:
Stop.Bela turns at the door. Ruby just walked in.BELA:
Why? Dead or alive, those were the orders.RUBY:
Then why did you lead me here if you donít wanna kill them?Sam and Dean exchange shocked looks.RUBY:
Just let me handle this.BELA:
Oh, I see, you wanna be the one who kills him, donít you? Looking for the reward on his heads.DEAN:
[smirking] Knew it: sooner or later.BELA:
You know them?RUBY:
Sorry, Bela, I guess the charadeís over.SAM:
Bela?!Ruby takes out a jar of holy water, opens it and splashes it all over Bela. Smoke starts coming out of her as Bela falls on her knees and screams. Sam and Dean are automatically released. Ruby splashes more holy water over Bela as the brothers get back on their feet. Ruby takes out her knife.RUBY:
Get out of here!Sam and Dean rush out of the motel room. Sam grabs his backpack before leaving.
Sam and Dean wait for Ruby outside the Impala parked in front of the motel.RUBY:
What kind of morons walk into a town full of demons and donít draw Devilís traps on the doors?SAM:
Did you just call her Bela?RUBY:
Bela? As inÖ as in Bela?RUBY:
As in the one who stole the Colt right under your noses? Yep, thatís her.DEAN:
How did she turn into a demon so fast? You said it could take centuries. On second thought, probably there wasnít much soul left to burn.SAM:
And how did you even know her?RUBY:
When you told me the Colt got stolen, looking for her was the first thing I did. Too bad she had already given it to Lillith by the time I got to her.SAM:
She acted like she didnít even know who we were, like we were just the guys Lillith ordered her to kill.DEAN:
Which we are.RUBY:
Thatís what hell is all about, SAM:
Speaking of hell, isnít she supposed to be rotting there?RUBY:
Thereís only one way a demon can get out of hell: if you summon him.SAM:
Who would summon Bela?RUBY:
Lillith. You know she owns her soul. A snap of her fingers and every demon she owns lines up in front of her within seconds.Ruby casts a meaningful glare at Dean, who realizes what Ruby is saying.SAM:
Why did you bring her here, Ruby?Ruby approaches Dean as she talks.RUBY:
Just to show Dean what heís getting into, whatís heís about to become. I just hope youíre ready to become Lillithís bitch.Dean looks annoyed and disgusted.RUBY:
Whatís the matter, Dean? You can see my face, canít you? You can smell the sulphur in my breath, am I right? Youíre almost there, Dean.Ruby looks down at Deanís watch.RUBY:
Only fourteen hours to go. Itís funny: how you wonít accept help from a demon when youíre so close to become one. What are you gonna do Dean? Hunt us? Pretend youíre still human when youíre eyes go all black? Eternity in denial, it can be a pain in the ass.DEAN:
Takes one to know, doesnít it?Ruby chuckles mockingly.RUBY:
Iím a freak of nature, Dean. No other demon has ever remembered what was like to be human. Some may remember their name, some may even remember they were humans way back when, but none could ever tell you what was it like. So I wouldnít get my hopes of being a ďgoodĒ demon too high if I were you.DEAN:
You think youíre good, Ruby?RUBY:
Iím not. But Iím as close as a demon can get, and thatís closer than youíll ever be.Ruby takes a moment to enjoy Deanís seriously concerned look.

| Act III: MalheurAt a suburban house, Lillithís staring out the window, her eyes white. The little girlís mother walks in.MOTHER:
Belaís dead.Lillithís eyes go back to normal.MOTHER:
The new one?LILLITH:
It wonít be long before they get here.MOTHER:
So it worked.LILLITH:
Be prepared, I know the brothers, Iíve studied them. If theyíre coming hat means theyíre not alone.MOTHER:
And more.The girlís mother walks out.
Back at the motel, Sam and Dean are loading the trunk. Sam stares at Dean the whole time.DEAN:
Quit looking at me like that, Sammy.SAM:
Dean, I know, I know you donít want to make a deal with a demon again, I know itís not the ideal, but if you think about it, itís safe: a deal is a deal, there is no way around it. If you keep your end of the deal so do they, whether they want it or not. So, as long as you keep hunting, you get to live.DEAN:
And what if I donít wanna hunt forever, huh? Have you ever thought of that?SAM:
Are you serious? I mean, would you actually consider quitting the hunting?DEAN:
I donít know, maybe, I could, you donít know that. MaybeÖ maybe if I really got to live, I would like to do something else. If thereís one thing this whole thing has made me realize is that lifeís too short.SAM:
You saw Bela back there, you saw what she has turned into. Itís been, what? Three weeks? She doesnít remember who she was, she doesnít even remember she was human.DEAN:
Thatís because she wasnít human even when se was alive, Sam. It probably took five minutes to cook that skankís poor excuse of a soul into a demon.SAM:
So what? As long as it takes over five minutes itís fine by you? What is it with you? One year ago you didnít even hesitate to throw yourself at the Crossroad Demon, whatís so different now?DEAN:
That Iíve learned, Sam. Nothing good comes out of making deals with those things. And I am not going to kill you, I am not going to watch you die again.SAM:
Youíll bring me back.DEAN:
Maybe thatís what Iím scared of!SAM:
WhÖ Dean, what are you talking about?DEAN:
Dean, what are you not telling me?Dean sighs.DEAN:
Back in Wyoming, when the Yellow Eyed Demon held me down, he told me something.SAM:
What did he tell you?DEAN:
That what came backÖ that you, may not be one hundred percent Sam.Sam snorts.SAM:
And you believed him?DEAN:
I donít know what to think, Sam. Youíve changed, youíre not the same you were one year ago. You used to get all pouty whenever we killed a demon, or even exorcised it. Now youíre colder, ruthless. Hell, you went all Schwarzenegger on Gordon and killed him with your bare hands.SAM:
I was just trying to be more like you, Dean. Look at me in the eye and tell me you wouldnítí have done the same. Hell, that demon in Massachusetts, the one that tricked all those witches, you stabbed her over five times before you decided she was dead. Itís a little hypocritical, donít you think? Whenever you go tough, youíre a good hunter, but whenever I do, Iím the Antichrist!Dean looks at Sam startled, unsure of what to say.SAM:
Nothingís going to happen to me, okay? Hey, Dean, look at me. Iím going to be okay.DEAN:
Of course you are, because weíre not making anymore deals.Dean steps away from Sam and heads to the Impala.DEAN:
Are you coming? Weíve got a demon to impale.Sam sighs in frustration and follows Dean into the Impala.
Deanís Impala drives into a suburban street, Bobbyís Chevelle behind him. Ruby is standing on the sidewalk, waiting for them. Both vehicles park in front of her. Dean, Sam, Bobby and Ellen step out of the cars. Ellen looks disapprovingly at Ruby.ELLEN:
I guess youíre Ruby.RUBY:
Goodie, now thereís five of usÖ against over two dozen demons.SAM:
If you want to help itís fine, but if youíre just gonna stay there bitching about everything, please just leave.RUBY:
Donít be stupid. You need me..DEAN:
I thought you said you couldnít come with us.RUBY:
She knows youíre here anyway. Now letís get moving, Lillithís a block from here.DEAN:
Does she know weíre this close?RUBY:
Not yet, but the minute we put so much of a foot on the street, she will. Sheís got demonís guarding both ends.SAM:
Everyone in the street is possessed?RUBY:
Not all of them, sheís got some hostages.DEAN:
Weíll leave the cars here, Iíll go at the front, if I identify anyone as a demon, Iíll strike himRUBY:
Strike him with what, exactly?SAM:
Palo santo, holy wood from Peru, itÖRUBY:
I know what palo santo is. It wonít kill them but it will paralyze them. Iíll go with you, I can see them too.SAM:
No, itís better if we split. We go on both ends of the street, Dean on one side, Ruby on the other. If you see a demonÖSam opens his backpack, showing a lot of pointed palo santo stakes inside.SAM:
Öyou stab him, and leave the stake inside them, so they stay put.ELLEN:
Then weíre killing all the hosts of the demons.Dean casts a see-my-point? look at Sam.SAM:
I know, but I donít see any other option.RUBY:
Neither do I. Letís go, Sam.DEAN:
Iím not leaving you alone with my brother.BOBBY:
Iíll go with them, you stay with Ellen.The group splits.
Itís getting dark. Dean and Ellen sneak behind a group of bushes. They see a couple of men smoking, chatting and laughing, like two friends who just bumped into each other on the street.ELLEN:
Yeah. They must be the guards Ruby talked about.ELLEN:
So whatís the deal with Ruby? She shows up, offers her help, what does she want?DEAN:
She says she wants to kill Lillith. Me? I think sheís just waiting for the right time to get our asses killed.ELLEN:
I know Bobby gave you a hard time for making that deal. I just want you to know I understand why you did it, I know how important is Sam to you, and if I had to do the same for JoÖDEAN:
What else is family for, right?ELLEN:
Right.Sam, Bobby and Ruby are on the opposite end of the street, hiding behind a truck parked on one side. They stare at two men guarding the street. The rest of the street is empty.SAM:
Where are the rest of the demons?RUBY:
Inside the houses.SAM:
[pointing] That big house right in the middle.SAM:
Does she have the hostages with her?RUBY:
Theyíre in that house over there.SAM:
So we move in now?RUBY:
Yes.Sam, Bobby and Ruby come out of their hiding place and run right towards the two demons standing in the middle of the street. The demons turn at them angry as their eyes go black. Sam, Bobby and Ruby jump at them, stakes and knife in hand.
Dean and Ellen look from the other end of the street. The demons guarding their side turn to look at the side where the others are fighting.DEAN:
Now!Dean and Ellen come out of the bushes and head to the demons. They move fast and barely give them time to react as they plunge the stakes right into their hearts.
On Samís side, Ruby has managed to kill both of the demons.RUBY:
The hostages are in that house.BOBBY:
Iíll take care of them.RUBY:
Sam should go. You know Lillith wants you dead, Sam, you canít just walk into her house.SAM:
Iím not leaving Dean alone.Bobby heads toward a house on one end of the street as Sam and Ruby head to the big house in the middle. As they run, they see the lights inside the houses going on, and people looking outside them, with black eyes.SAM:
How many of them are there inside the house?RUBY:
I have the feeling Lillith might be waiting for you alone.Sam and Ruby arrive at the big house at the same time Dean and Ellen do.DEAN:
Heís taking care of the hostages.ELLEN:
This is it. We might as well get in.They approach the house and Sam starts picking the lock. Dean, Ruby and Ellen look around. They see the demons coming out of their houses.DEAN:
Sammy, you better hurry up.Sam finally gets the door open and they all get inside.
Inside the house, everything is dark and silent.DEAN:
Where is everybody?RUBY:
You two go check upstairs, weíll stay in this floor.Dean and Ellen obey as Sam and Ruby walk across the living room and then head to the kitchen.RUBY:
Any luck convincing Dean?SAM:
Heís not doing it. Hey, tell me something: when you first told me you could save my brother, was this your plan all along?RUBY:
No, my plan was to get you to kill Lillith, but despite my best efforts I couldnít get you ready for it.SAM:
What exactly did you want me to do?RUBY:
I told you Sam, you are special, with just a tiny bit of training you couldíve gone from visions to full on explosive power. You couldíve taken Lillith out in the blink of an eye. But I needed you to be focused, and with your attention on anything but saving DeanÖSAM:
What did you expect? Heís my brother.RUBY:
I know, but still you have to let him go. Dammit, Sam, you just donít get it: you have to let him go. [she snorts] Iím deluding myself. Two hundred Tuesdays and three months without him and you still couldnít let him go.SAM:
How do youÖ Did you send the Trickster down on us?RUBY:
He was ready to kill you both the minute he spotted you, have you slaughtered by the angry spirits you hunt or something like that, you know his style. I convinced him there were better ways to have fun with you. Now I see it was all for nothing.SAM:
[furious] Do you have any idea what it was like to go through all those Tuesdays?RUBY:
[looking up] Shush!Sam looks up too.
Upstairs, Dean and Ellen walk stealthily along a small corridor. Deanís in the lead and they both have their stakes in front of them. They approach a door. After getting an approval look from Ellen, Dean kicks the door open. They look inside: itís a little girlís room. The walls are painted in pink and thereís a big bed right in the middle.
Lillith is sitting on a chair in front of a dresser, combing a doll. Lillith looks up to the mirror in front of her and sees Dean and Ellen standing at the door. Slowly, she turns around and looks at them, still brushing her dollís hair.LILLITH:
Dean.Dean and Ellen burst inside the room ready to stab Lillith. She flips her hand and sends Ellen flying against a wall, where she passes out. Lillith turns her sight on Dean.LILLITH:
I was wondering when youíd come.DEAN:
Yeah? Well, now you have me. Thatís what you wanted right? You can stop killing now, Iím not going anywhere.Lillith just laughs, still behaving like a little girl.LILLITH:
How cute, you thought I did all this just to lure you to me? Sweetheart, youíre already dead.As she speaks, she approaches Dean with her hand open and pointing at him. Dean is slowly pulled against a wall and lifted up.LILLITH:
Your brother, on the other handÖSam and Ruby rush up the stairs. As they get to the second floor, Sam stops Ruby.SAM:
Give me your knife.Ruby obeys without a word. They look at the light coming out of a room and head there.
Outside Lillithís house, all demons are waiting for orders standing by the front door.
At the hostageís house. Bobbyís getting everybody out through the back door.BOBBY:
[whispering] Donít make a sound and get the hell out of here.Bobby runs to the main entrance. He sees the demons outside Lillithís house. He stealthily gets out of the house with a backpack on his back. He takes out a bag of salt and spreads it on the street, making a line that divides the street.
Sam and Ruby walk in. Lillith smiles happily, like a child whoís just been handled an ice-cream.LILLITH:
Hey, Sam! We were just talking about you.SAM:
Let my brother go.LILLITH:
Relax, Iím not going to kill him. Heíll be dead in four hours anyways and I wouldnít want him to miss this.SAM:
Let him out of his deal.LILLITH:
Iím afraid I canít. But hey, donít worry, I know how much you care for each other, I wonít keep you apart for too long.Lillithís eyes go white as she lifts her hand and points it at Sam.LILLITH:
It was fun meeting you, Sam.

| Act IV: Weaseling OutThe whole room is filled with light. Dean looks away and narrows his eyes, Ruby and Sam look down and cover their eyes with their hands. Suddenly a high pitched sound fills the room, followed by a loud deep voice.BOBBY:
[off] Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus, omnis satanica potestas, omnis incursio infernalis adversarii, omnis legio, omnis congregatio et secta diabolica, in nomine et virtute Domini Nostri Jesu.Outside the house the glow from Lillithís room is coming out of the window. The demons turn their sights at Bobby, whoís standing behind them with a loudspeaker in his hand. The demons notice heís in between two lines of salt. Bobby continues the exorcism.BOBBY:
Christi, eradicare et effugare a Dei Ecclesia, ab animabus ad imaginem Dei conditis ac pretioso divini Agni sanguine redemptis. Non ultra audeas, serpens callidissime, decipere humanum genus, Dei Ecclesiam persequi, ac Dei electos excutere et cribrare sicut triticum.Back at Lillithís room, the bright lights goes out and Lillithís eyes go back to normal. Lillith holds her head as if she was having a headache. Dean is released from his grip and falls to the floor. Lillith makes a second attempt to attack as her eyes go white again. Sam jumps at Lillith with the knife but she sends it flying out of the window, smashing the glass. Lillithís pain seems to be increasing. Ruby is also suffering the effects form the exorcism.BOBBY:
[off] Imperat tibi Deus altissimus, cui in magna tua superbia te similem haberi adhuc prśsumis; qui omnes homines vult salvos fieri et ad agnitionem veritaris venire. Imperat tibi Deus Pater; imperat tibi Deus Filius; imperat tibi Deus Spiritus Sanctus.SAM:
We need to get out of here, now!Ruby, still in pain from the exorcism, heads towards Ellen and shakes her to wake her up. Ellen opens here eyes and sees Lillith on her knees holding her head.SAM:
Letís go.Ellen gets quickly back on her feet as Ruby helps her up. They all run outside.
Outside the house, all demons are on their knees holding their heads. They run past them and Ruby picks her knife up the ground.BOBBY:
Imperat tibi majestas Christi, śternum Dei Verbum, caro factum, qui pro salute generis nostri tua invidia perditi, humiliavit semetipsum facfus hobediens usque ad mortem; qui Ecclesiam suam śdificavit supra firmam petram, et portas inferi adversus eam nunquam esse prśvalituras edixit, cum ea ipse permansurus omnibus diebus usque ad consummationem sśculi. Imperat tibi sacramentum Crucis, omniumque christianś fidei Mysteriorum virtus.They all run towards Bobby and get behind the salt line. Ruby doesnít, she stands in pain on the other side of the line. Sam kicks some of the salt and lets her in, then he restores the line. A roaring sound comes out of Lillithís room. They all look up and see black smoke coming out of there. The demons outside the street leave their bodies too.DEAN:
We need to get out of here!They all run past the second salt line, Sam kicks it so Ruby can walk out and they all run away.
The five of them arrive at the street where they parked the cars.RUBY:
I know somewhere we can go. It is safe.SAM:
[to Bobby] Get you and Ellen to a safe place. Weíll go with Ruby.Bobby looks like he disagrees but a roaring sound nearby makes him react. He nods and gets inside his car with Ellen. Sam, Dean and Ruby head to the Impala.
Boise, IdahoSam, Dean and Ruby drive on the Impala. There are empty fields on both sides of the road. The wind attacks everything around them furiously. The sound of thunders fills the air. A tree branch hits the windshield.DEAN:
Do you know where weíre going?RUBY:
Is it safe?RUBY:
Just so weíre clear, weíre only coming with you for hiding, noneís making any deals.SAM:
I mean it, Sam.RUBY:
I get it! Youíre stubborn and stupid, and youíre gonna die in less than two hours. Are you happy now? Now, would you shut up and drive? Letís make sure at least one of two idiots make alive to tomorrow.They all drive for a while in awkward silence. After a while, Dean turns on the radio. Some weather report comes out of the speakers.WEATHER MAN:
[voiceover] What looked like a beautiful day this morning seems it was just the calm before the storm. Weíre expecting strong winds and heavy rains over the night, we recommend to stay inside of your houses and not come out unless absolutely necesseÖDean switches the station, AC/DCís ďStick AroundĒ is on. Dean smiles and beats the steering wheel at the rhythm of the music as he drives. After a while, the radio starts picking up some interference, going on and of and it finally goes off. Dean, Sam and Ruby look out the windows and at the clouded sky.SAM:
Looks like theyíre getting closer.RUBY:
Drive faster.Dean obeys without a word. After a while the landscape around them changes: theyíve left the abandoned field behind and the road enters some woods.RUBY:
Stop here.Dean stops the car, they all get out.RUBY:
This way.Dean turns to look at the Impala. A loud thunder strikes menacingly.RUBY:
Just leave the car here, letís go.Sam, Dean and Ruby run into the woods. The wind keeps getting stronger and stronger. A tree crashes down blocking their path. They stop right on time before it crushes them. The sky is suddenly filled with streams of black smoke. They keep running. Finally they reach an old cabin in the middle of the woods. Ruby knocks. A brunette woman dressed in black opens the door. The woman flashes her eyes, theyíre red.CROSSROAD DEMON:
Get in.They get inside. The cabin is small, there are two doors opposite to the one in the entrance. A grandfather clock is in a corner. Ruby throws a bag of salt at Sam and a spray paint canister to Dean.RUBY:
Start with the Devilís traps.Dean starts drawing the Devilís trap on the door while Sam sprinkles salt over the window ledges.DEAN:
What if the demons traps us here? What if we go boom like that police station back in Colorado?RUBY:
Thereís a hidden tunnel on the back, itíll get us out of here safely.Dean finishes drawing the Devilís trap, Sam tosses the empty salt bag on a corner.SAM:
So, how do we get Dean out of his deal?DEAN:
Shut up. Ruby?RUBY:
I know a spell, it will make us go forward in time.DEAN:
Deanís deal is due tonight at midnight of Saturday the 17th.SAM:
You want us to skip Saturday and go straight into Sunday.RUBY:
If Dean makes it alive to Sunday, heís out of his deal.RUBY:
And you die.Sam nods energetically.SAM:
Letís do it.DEAN:
Am I invisible or something? Being about to be a corpse suddenly makes me irrelevant? I said no.SAM:
Start the spell, Ruby.Ruby takes out a piece of chalk from her jacket and starts drawing symbols on the floor. Dean approaches her but Sam gets in the way.SAM:
Back off of me, Sam! I said weíre not gonna do it.SAM:
Damn it, Dean! Iím not gonna let you die!DEAN:
The hell you are!Dean makes another attempt of grabbing Ruby but Sam holds him by his jacket and pushes him against the wall.SAM:
No, Iím not!DEAN:
This is it, Sam, my timeís up. You need to let me go. Please, Sam, Iím begging you, just let me go.Sam shakes his head, tears in his eyes.DEAN:
Keep on with the hunting, kill Lillith, along with any other son of a bitch that comes in your way.SAM:
[crying] I canít.The grandfather clock ticks and begins to strike midnight. Dean and Sam turn to look at it.DEAN:
I guess this is it.SAM:
[crying] DeanÖRuby stands up.RUBY:
Everybody inside the circle.SAM:
Iím sorry, Dean.Sam shoves Dean into the circle drawn on the floor. The circle has all sorts of symbols in and out of it. Ruby and the Crossroad Demon get inside as well.SAM:
I cannot say goodbye to you.Sam gives Ruby an approving nod.RUBY:
Ventus tempus recolligo. Affero al aut propero meus via. Vado meus iter itineris protinus. Permissi cras essere hodie.The storm outside gets stronger, the clockís chime is still ringing, Sam looks at it. The hands are moving rapidly. After they circle the clock twice, the chime stops, so do the sounds of the storm. Everythingís in silence except for the clock ticking. The brothers look around, looking for any sign that anythingís changed.RUBY:
This is it: midnight of Sunday the 18th.Dean turns to look at Sam, his eyes widen in horror. Sam takes one hand to his back, then he looks at it; itís covered in blood.DEAN:
SamÖSam collapses to the floor, dead. Dean gets down to the floor and holds him. After a few moments staring at the dead body he stands up and turns at the Crossroad Demon.DEAN:
Alright, bring him back.Dean and the demon approach to kiss, but then a gunshot is heard. The demonís eyes and face light up in a bright, orange color. Smoke starts coming out of her body. The demon falls to her knees and dies. Dean and Ruby look in horror, then they turn their sights to the door. A little girl is standing there, with the Colt smoking in her hand.
