Supernatural s08e01 Episode Script

We Need to Talk About Kevin

I think dad wants us to pick up where he left off.
Saving people, hunting things the family business.
There are things much older than souls in purgatory.
In the shuffling madness Leviathan! Of the locomotive breath Dick is coming.
Runs the all-time loser A shark's got to eat.
Headlong to his death Bobby! He picks up Gideon's Bible open at page one When it's your time Thank God go.
And the train, it won't stop going no way to slow down What the hell are you? He's a Prophet of the Lord.
And that's the word of God? Yes.
It's about Leviathan.
Does it say anything about how to kill them? When we freaks die, where do we go? It's like the backside of your worst nightmares.
It's all blood and bone and darkness.
Purgatory.
Cut off the head, and the body will flounder.
Prophet's mine.
You are well and truly on your own.
We're in Purgatory? Cass, I think we better g-- Cass? Will, get up.
Something just happened.
Go.
Go do something.
W-what am I supposed to Hello? Hello? It was a deer.
I don't know.
It was like -- it was a deer or some-- Oh! Where am I? What? W-- hey, hey.
Where's the road? [ Styx's "Man in the Wilderness" plays .]
Another year has passed me by still I look at myself and cry what kind of man have I become? all of the years I've spent in search of myself and I'm still in the dark 'cause I can't seem to find the light alone sometimes I feel like a man in the wilderness I'm a lonely soldier off to war sent away to die never quite knowing why sometimes it makes no sense at all it makes no sense at all This better be you, you son of a bitch.
Hold on, you bastard.
Hold on! Anima corpori fuerit corpus totem resurgent.
Wow.
Wow.
That was fast.
No thanks to you.
The hell took you so long? You're welcome.
Everything working? Good enough.
So What now? Like we talked about, I guess.
Then this is goodbye.
Keep your nose clean, Benny.
You hear me? We made it, brother.
I can't believe it.
You and me both.
Oh! Dean?! What the -- I'm not a demon.
Or a Leviathan.
What -- Or a shifter.
Good.
My turn.
Come on.
Let's go.
I don't need to.
I know it's you.
Damn it, Sammy! Come on! No! Dean, can I just say hello? All right.
Well let's do this.
I don't know whether to give you a hug or take a shower.
Come here.
Dude You'refreakin' alive.
I mean, what the hell happened? Well, I guess standing too close to exploding Dick sends your ass straight to Purgatory.
You were in Purgatory? For the whole year? Yeah, time flies when you're running for your life.
Well, how'd you get out? I guess whoever built that box didn't want me in there any more than I did.
What does that mean? I'm here, okay? What about Cass? Was he there? Yeah, Cass didn't make it.
What exactly does that mean? Something happened to him down there.
Things got pretty hairy towards the end, and hejust let go.
So Cass is dead? You saw him die? I saw enough.
So, then what, you're not sure? I said I saw enough, Sam.
Right.
Dean, I'm sorry.
Me too.
So you -- I can't believe you're actually here.
You know that half your numbers are out of service? Felt like I was leaving messages in the wind.
Yeah, I-I-I didn't get your messages.
How come? Probably because I ditched the phones.
Because? I guess, um I guess something happened to me this year, too.
I don't hunt anymore.
Yeah.
And Sasha Grey's gone legit.
What? Nothing.
Um, she did a Soderbergh movie.
What? She did a Soderbergh -- No.
You, Sam.
You quit? Yeah.
Yeah, I -- you were goneDean.
Cass was gone, Bobby was dead.
I mean, Crowley even shipped off Kevin and Meg to parts unknown.
So you turned tail on the family business.
Nothing says "family" quite like the whole family being dead.
I wasn't dead.
In fact, I was knee-deep in God's armpit killing monsters, which, I thought, is what we actually do.
Yes, Dean.
And far as I knew, what we do is the thing that got every single member of my family killed.
I had no one -- no one.
And for the first time in my life, I was completely alone.
And, honestly, I didn't exactly have a roadmap.
So, yeah, I fixed up the Impala, and I justdrove.
After you looked for me.
Did you look for me, Sam? Good.
That's good.
Now, we -- wealways told each other not to look for each other.
That's smart.
Good for you.
Of course, we always ignored that because of our deep, abiding love for each another, but not this time, right, Sammy? Look, I'm still the same guy, Dean.
Well, bully for you.
I'm not.
Welcome back.
You want some dinner? Pass.
Okay.
What? Sam Winchester, it's Kevin Tran.
Crowley had me in this warehouse, and I just escaped.
I don't know where I am.
And I don't know if he or -- or any other demons are still after me.
I need your help.
Call me back.
It's Kevin Tran.
When was that? Sam Winchester.
It's Kevin Tran.
I called you a week ago.
Call me, please.
I don't know what the hell I'm doing out here, man.
Okay.
I get it.
So, what, you want to strategize or something? Sam, it's Kevin.
I'm good.
Whoo! I'm so good.
Is hedrunk? 3 months since you ditched my ass.
Haven't slept for more than four hours a night.
It's all good in the hood.
Uh, if you're still alive, eat me.
Eat me.
Sam, it's been 6 months.
I can only assume you're dead.
If not, don't try and reach me.
You won't be able to.
I won't be calling this number anymore.
He was our responsibility.
And you couldn't answer the damn phone.
All right, listen to this -- Kevin's last message.
Listen to the background.
If not, don't try and reach me.
You won't be able to.
I won't be calling this number anymore.
Hear that? What is it? I think he was on a bus.
Listen again.
If not, don't try and reach me.
Last stop -- Centreville.
won't be calling this number -- Centreville? Centreville, where? Michigan.
And why would Kevin be in Centreville, Michigan? Because his high-school girlfriend goes to college there.
That's thin.
It's the best lead we got.
"We"? You were right.
He was our responsibility.
Solet's find him, okay? Hey.
Well No visible signs of douchery -- I'll give you that.
Smell like dog to you? In the car? You tell me.
Hmm.
Aah! Take a breath.
Calm down.
Where's the angel? You're him.
The human.
Where's the angel? I don't know.
Aah! You okay? Yeah.
Yeah, hey, what do you say we blow this joint, hit the road? Now? Yeah, Kevin's not getting any more found.
The kid survived a year without us.
He'll be okay for another Besides, when's the last time you slept? Hmm.
What? Nothing.
Is that, uh, that how you rationalized taking a year off? People will be okay? People were okay, Dean.
You're okay.
Wow.
Look, I did what we promised we'd do.
I moved on.
I lived my life.
Yeah, no, I'm getting that.
Look, it wasn't like I wasjust oblivious.
I mean, I read the paper every day.
I saw theweird stories, the kind of stuff we used to chase.
And you said what? "Not my problem"? Yes.
And you know what? The world went on.
People died, Sam.
People will always die, Dean.
Or maybe another hunter took care of it.
I don't know, but the point is, for the first time, I realized that it wasn't only up to me to stop it.
Hmm.
So what was it, hmm? What could possibly make you stop just like that? A girl? Was there a girl? The girl had nothing to do with it.
There was a girl.
Yeah.
There was.
And then there wasn't.
Any more questions? Listen, I know this is gonna sound crazy to you.
I don't even necessarily need you to understand.
Butyou need to know.
I didn't just drop out, Dean.
I found something.
Something I'venever had all my life.
What was her name? Amelia.
So, what, you, uh, you dropped your peanut butter in her chocolate? How'd it happen? I hit a dog.
I knew I smelled dog.
And I knew you'd throw a bitch fit.
Hey, the rules are simple, Sam.
You don't take a joint from a guy named Don, and there's no dogs in the car! All right, what about you? What about me? Look at you.
You've still got that look.
You're shaky.
You're on edge.
What was it like? You wouldn't believe me if I told you.
Try me.
It was bloody.
Messy.
of bottom-dwelling nasties.
Hell, most days felt like But there was something about being there.
Felt pure.
What? No thanks for saving your hide? Sure.
I won't shove this up your ass.
Mm.
Awful strange way to punch your meal ticket, friend.
I got something you need.
Yeah, what's that? A way out.
Even a dentaenapocalypse like you knows there's no such thing.
There is if you're human.
God has made it so.
At least, that's the rumor.
Bull.
Suit yourself.
Maybe you've gone native.
Maybe you like being man meat for every Tom, Dick, and Harry.
Prove it.
Nah.
You're either in or you're out.
So you just want to guide me out of Purgatory out of the goodness of your undead heart? More or less.
What's in it for you? I'm hopping a ride.
What? It's a human portal, jackass.
Only humans can pass through.
I show you the door, you hump my soul to the other side.
So you're looking for a soul train.
Sure.
If that's what you're into.
And how do I know this isn't a set-up? How do I know I ain't gonna end up like your friend over there? He was my friend.
Now you are.
First rule of Purgatory, kid.
You can't trust nobody.
You just asked me to trust you.
You see? You're getting it now.
First we find the angel.
Mm, three's a crowd, chief.
Well, hey.
Either you're in or you're out.
The last time I saw Kevin was, like, a year ago.
When he disappeared? Mm-hmm.
He stole his mother's car because he thought he was on a mission from God or something? It was crazy.
Shut up! My friend Adam -- who got addicted to Adderall but got a perfs on his S.
A.
T.
s, so it was totally worth it -- same thing.
Shut up! Seerse.
Mission from God.
Look, Channing, we know Kevin was here.
No, he wasn't.
And we understand if you're trying to protect him.
But nobody can protect Kevin better than we can.
I hate Kevin.
I wouldn't protect him.
I thought you two had a thing.
Yeah, when he was going to Princeton.
Wow.
Just like that? Mm-hmm.
So why would Kevin come sniffing around here if not to see her? No idea.
Maybe we should split up, ask around, see if anybody's seen him? Yeah, Asian kid, yea high, at a university.
That should be easy.
Okay.
Are you ready to forget all about what's-his-name? Okay, this guy's name is Kyle, he's Jewish, um, I'm pretty sure he has an Asian thing.
Perfs, right? Shut up, bitch.
Inferni clamavi ad te regem sermonos meos.
The Prophet still has not yet shown his face to me.
But you should know Dean Winchester is back.
Help.
I need help.
The dog needs help.
That way! He just -- he just came out of nowhere, right in front of my car.
We need a doctor.
Are you a doctor? The doctor's coming, sir.
But I'm not sure -- You're not sure what? This is an animal hospital.
You save animals.
Sir.
Save this animal! Roberta, can you escort this gentleman out, please? Yes.
I did this.
Come on.
Don't judge me.
I got bubkes.
Well And here you go.
Ah, thank you.
Sweet mother of God.
It's for me? Seriously? Check this out.
So, I went through campus security archives around the time Kevin should have been here.
Anyone look familiar? Dude.
It's a burger.
It's treasure.
All right, so, what, Kevin comes all the way to campus and doesn't see his girlfriend? I don't know but I went to the computer lab and found the computer he was on.
And? And I found the website he was visiting, found his account username, hacked in to the website, found when else this username logged in, and then I reverse-tracked the I.
P.
address back to the original user, Kevin, who has apparently been using the same wireless router for the past two months.
That is spectacular work.
Any chance I can get that in English? Yeah.
I think he's in Iowa -- at a coffee shop.
A church? You sure this is right? Barista at the coffee shop swears he's seen Kevin ducking in here for the past few months.
Kevin.
It's Sam and Dean Winchester.
Open up.
Stop! Stop! Not Leviathans.
It's us.
What the hell happened to you guys? Cliff Notes? I went to Purgatory.
Sam hit a dog.
For real? You want some towels? Who taught you all this? I guessGod.
God taught you how to trap demons? Technically, yeah.
Wait, wait, hold on.
Crowley kidnapped you.
I saw that.
But then you left a message saying you escaped.
How? Well first, he took me to a warehouse.
Look at you.
Haircut, manicure, pedicure.
Like a new penny.
- Will there be torture now? - Torture? Heavens, no.
No.
Quite the opposite, my young prince.
Sky's the limit for you and I.
There was a tablet there, like the last one.
There we go.
Now, remember -- feel like a winner, be a winner.
Okay? Interpret.
Wait, there's another tablet? So another word of God.
Yes.
How many words of God are there? I just became a Prophet, like, a year ago.
Well, did this tablet have a name? "Demons.
" What about demons? As far as I could tell everything.
What are we looking at? It's all just fragments.
Bits and pieces.
This is hard.
Throw me a bone here, Kev.
Wait Yes? I'm sorry.
Is it just me, or is it hot in here? Is it? Our mistake.
Okay.
I see something.
Hell Gates.
Talk to me.
What about Hell Gates? There's one in Wisconsin.
The tablet told me how to open it.
There were ingredients for a spell.
Right away.
Mr.
Crowley would like you to proceed.
Where is Mr.
Crowley? Where do you think, dumbass? Wisconsin.
Go.
You showed the king of Hell how to open a Hell Gate? So that all the demons in Hell could come out all at the same time? What? No.
Men? Kevin? Kevin? I told Crowley I was opening a Hell Gate, but I was reading from another chapter -- how to destroy demons.
You son of a bitch.
Wait.
Kevin? Where's the tablet now? Safe.
Safe where? Hey.
As long as it's safe, okay? Were you able to read anything else off the tablet before you stashed it? Only the stuff about closing the gates of Hell.
Forever.
Come again? Banish all demons off the face of the Earth, lock them away forever.
That could be important, right? Closing the gates of Hell forever? Yeah.
Yeah, that could be important.
Okay, if this kid is right, he's sitting on a bombshell.
Hell, he is the bombshell.
What? That.
I mean, there's no way that Kevin's getting out of this intact, is there? Well, I think he's doing pretty well for himself so far.
Yeah, he got out.
And now he's in it whether he likes it or not.
Sofree will, that's only for you? I can't believe what I'm hearing.
Sam, we have an opportunity to wipe the slate clean.
We take Kevin to the tablet, he tells us the spell, we send every demon back to hell -- forever.
Every single bastard that destroyed our lives, killed our mother, killed Jess.
And you're not sure? Kevin, I, uh I owe you an apology.
Um look, when you disappeared and Dean disappeared, Ineeded to clear my head, andI'm thinking maybe you were one of the pieces that I should have been there to pick up.
You've been a hunter since you were a kid, right? Yeah, mostly.
Yeah.
Ever since I realized I was a Prophet It's just hard to believe this is actually my life.
Yeah.
It sucks right now.
I know that.
Um, it might suck for a lot longer, buttrust me on this -- it gets better.
You know I'm not gay, right? If we can do this, get the tablet, get you everything you need to close the gates of Hell, there's a world out there where nobody -- not Crowley, no demon -- is chasing you anymore.
I guess I just don't see how I get from here to there.
I used to not be able to see it, either.
But there is a way.
Just give me He's sustained some serious internal bleeding.
There's at least two leg fractures that I can see right now.
But with some TLC, he should pull through for you.
Thanks, Doctor.
You're gonna take the dog? Look, I-I would.
He'snot mine.
He's not anybody's.
I-I spend a lot of the time on the road.
Don't you think you're responsible? Why do you think I brought him here? Roberta, could you hand this man his trophy on his way out, please? Well, maybe if you were such an upstanding guy, you wouldn't have hit him in the first place? Fine.
I'll take him.
There's my hero.
We got company.
Sam.
What the hell is that? It's Purgatory.
Dean Winchester.
Back from Purgatory.
Spanky the demon.
Yeah, I heard about you.
The one who uses too much teeth, right? Dean! Hello, boys.
Dean.
You're looking well, let's just say Purgatory didn't do you any favors.
Where's your angel? Ask your mother.
There's that grade-school zip.
Missed it.
I really did.
Moose.
Still with the pork chops.
I admire that.
Let Channing go.
That's not Channing, Kevin.
Not anymore.
What an awful thing to say to the boy.
Of course it's Channing.
Kev.
Last time we danced, you stole my tablet and killed my men.
Tell you what.
Come with me now, bygones.
And I'll let the girl go back toWhat's-the-Point U.
He's lying.
You won't get Channing back.
She's probably dead already.
Will you please stop saying that? Let the girl speak.
Kevin? Channing? What's going on? There's a demon in you, and you're going to your safety school.
What?! But it's gonna be okay.
I-I-I-I just -- I can't.
No, no, wait.
Okay.
I'll do it.
Kevin.
Myself for the girl.
But this ends.
All right? No fighting, no nothing.
It ends.
Can't let you do that, buddy.
Or what? You'll kill me? I'll grab my stuff.
Chin up, gentlemen.
I'm a professional.
This ain't over by a long shot, Crowley.
Really, Dean, who writes your stuff? A marshmallow? Come on, Kevin.
Chop, chop.
Kevin? Aah! Really, boys? Kevin! Kevin.
Sam, Dean, run! Find another meatsuit.
Hello? Wrong number.
Automated jackass.
All right, anybody want anything? I'm good.
Kevin? How you holding up? Awesome.
The king of Hell just snapped my girlfriend's neck.
How 'bout you? All right, listen to me.
I'm sorry about your girlfriend, okay? I am.
But the sooner you get this, the better.
You're in it now whether you like it or not.
That means you do what you got to do.
I'm hitting the head.
There he is.
How did you get a phone? Would you believe they sell these things in convenience stores now? A lot's changed in 50 years.
Must be a hell of a lot to take in.
Mostly it's the choices, you know? So many choices.
Yeah, I hear that.
Listen, Benny, not to beat a dead horse.
What we did down there is what we had to do.
Now, I don't regret it for a second.
Butyou know, maybe until we both adjust, it's best we don't talk for a while.
There it is.
One day at a time, just like we talked about, right? I think you had it right, bud.
What's that? Purgatory was pure.
I'm kind of wishin' I had appreciated it more.
You know? Like you.
Listen, you got an emergency, you call me, you understand? I hear you.
You keep your nose clean, too, brother.
Yeah.
