Supernatural s13e07 Episode Script

War of the Worlds

1 [ Grunting .]
[ Gasps .]
Aah! Mom? Mom! [ Thunderclap .]
No, no.
No! No! Demon: Who'd you say you were? I am Asmodeus.
Fourth Prince of Hell.
There's a new Sheriff in town.
No trace of Lucifer.
At this point, we must focus on the son.
There's no sign of him either, Sir.
With Lucifer gone, I want him found and trained to rule, with me as his humble advisor, of course.
[ Explosions .]
You should be dead.
And who are you? Don't you know me, brother? Michael? [ Grunting .]
[ Crunch .]
What are you gonna do? Kill me? Maybe I need you.
[ Groans .]
Every time I try and do something good, people get hurt.
[ Gunshot .]
[ Whoosh .]
[ Thud, crack .]
[ Grunts .]
I don't know what I am.
Maybe I'm just another monster.
I can't make the world a better place, not like this.
And I know that if I stay, I'm gonna hurt you.
Jack, listen I have to go.
No, Jack.
[ All shout, grunt .]
I'm so sorry.
[ Thunderclap .]
I got plenty of gripes with the old man.
His self-righteous narcissism, his “my way or the highway” quirk.
I gotta hand it to him.
He had a couple of great seconds when he banged out the universe.
[ Thunderclap .]
Guy had creative chops.
And optimism.
I'll give him that.
And despite his pissiness and his massive lack of irony, he did give mankind a good turn at bat and a chance to live in paradise.
[ Thunderclap .]
He ruled.
He smote.
He parted waters.
Worshipped by creatures who made God in man's image.
And then, he got disappointed.
Or worse, bored.
Picked up all his toys and left.
What was that? Hitched a ride on your temporal lobe.
Saw your world.
That paradise you left behind? Believe I'll take up residence, lend my guiding hand.
Ah, of course.
'Cause you've done such wonders with this place.
[ Metal creaking .]
While I was in your head, I saw what you're afraid of -- being locked up again, like you were in the Cage.
So after I'm done, you'll be left here, alone, in agony, forever.
[ Thunderclap .]
Okay, bro, could you do me a favor? Hmm? Eat me.
[ Metal clicking .]
[ Squish .]
Aah! [ Screaming .]
[ Screaming continues .]
[ Grunting .]
[ Thunderclap .]
[ Groans .]
[ Screams .]
Supernatural 13x07 War of the Worlds [ Typing .]
Anything? No.
[ Sighs .]
Not yet.
I put out an APB to every single Hunter we know.
ButJack's off the grid.
Kid was pretty spun out.
We'll find him.
I mean, there's gotta be a sign at some point, right? Yeah.
Kid can cause a tsunami with a hiccup.
I don't know.
Maybe he's covering his tracks.
Or this apparent dearth of evidence is, in fact, the evidence.
The evidence of Of some horrific misadventure that's befallen him, like being dragged down to Hell by Asmodeus.
Or [ Sighs .]
I don't know, possibly worse, being hijacked to Heaven by angels.
Yeah, but isn't he too fast and furious for angels? Maybe.
Maybe not.
That's what I'm gonna find out.
Find out from who? From -- from the angels? Yes.
All right.
Well, let's go.
Dean, you can't accompany me.
My contact is already anxious about meeting and won't speak in the presence of a stranger.
So introduce me.
Then I'm not a stranger.
I'll bring a six-pack.
Dean, I swore I would protect this boy.
Let me do this.
Don't do anything stupid.
All right.
I guess we're stuck in idle.
[ Door opens .]
So [ Scoffs .]
[ Door closes .]
What do we do? Just -- just sit around here and wait? Well, we could work a case.
We got three murders here a couple hundred miles apart, same M.
They were all horribly tortured before having their throat slit.
Look at the body.
Next to it.
She's a witch.
Were they all witches? Looking like.
These aren't Hunter kills.
[ Sighs .]
They're -- they're more ritualistic, like a sacrament or something.
Plus, all their places were ransacked, which means somebody was looking for something.
Jack Jack Jack Lord Asmodeus.
Does no one think of knockin'? I have news of The Jack.
What is it? There is no news of The Jack.
We've exhausted all our resources.
How is this possible? This is an entity of immense power, and yet, I detect nothing.
The Winchesters are doing a masterful job of cloaking him.
I doubt that, since they don't have The Jack anymore, either.
Say what? We have a Hunter on the payroll who says the Winchesters themselves are in a panic to find him.
Well, if they're not protecting the nephilim, then who is? [ Thunderclap .]
[ Groans .]
Hey, hey, hey.
I got an idea.
Why don't you wail on Mary Winchester for a while? I'll go get a latte, okay? Or not.
Look at you.
You claim to be a god in your world.
Here, you're pathetic.
[ Laughing .]
Hey, you try interdimensional travel sometime, pal.
Definitely no frills.
And just to be clear, I never claimed to be God.
Or a god, okay? Where I come from, God is a paradox.
He's everywhere, in your mind.
In reality, he's nowhere.
He left.
I, on the other hand, am the real deal.
I am everything humanity thinks I am and worse.
That's who you're dealing with, pal.
But, hey, congratulations to you for being king of the hill of this dead rock.
Unlike you, I'll be trading up.
Oh, you mean to the Earth? Sort of need that pesky little rift to pull that trade off, right? And it'soh.
For now.
I consider myself a man with a plan.
Alternate universes? Not news.
We've been exploring the idea.
“We”? Bring him in.
The greatest minds on this “dead rock,” including [ Thunderclap .]
Our Prophet of the Lord.
Kevin? [ Thunderclap .]
[ Door closes .]
Kevin Tran? Have we met? Uh, we had one of you in our world.
The other you is dead.
Don't care.
What do you have for me? I I've assembled all the elements annotated in the angel tablets.
Of course, I haven't done this before -- no one here has -- and any predictions are only predictive, not declarative probabilities being what they are or could be.
Or not.
But a fly in the ointment exists.
The key ingredient -- archangel grace, which you have refused to donate.
Don't screw with me, Worm.
I'm a vertebrate, neither an annelid nor a nematode.
I don't need to waste my grace.
And there's plenty in the cupboard.
Oh, touch me, and I'll -- [ Groans .]
Don't worry.
I won't take it all.
Save some for a rainy day.
[ Grunts .]
Say “ah.
” [ Inhales sharply, groans .]
[ High-pitched ringing .]
[ Gags .]
[ Ringing stops .]
[ Thunderclap .]
[ Siren wailing in distance .]
Yeah, Jody.
No, I mean, we don't know what's going on.
We just know that they're all witches.
[ Police radio chatter .]
All right.
Will do.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
All right, check this out.
This is the surveillance footage of the last victim before she was kidnapped and killed.
She turned down an alley, and that's when she got grabbed.
Wait, stop.
Stop, stop.
-Stop? -There.
Blow that up.
Is that Ketch.
How is that possible? It's not possible.
That -- that can't be Ketch.
Mom shot him clean through the head.
So that can't be Ketch.
What? Are you kidding me? You think I forget the face of the guy who tried to kill me? Twice? That's him.
[ Car door closes .]
And he's 30 feet away from the girl who got tortured and murdered.
I say case solved.
Say it is Ketch, which I still don't understand.
Why -- why is he -- Sam and Dean Winchester? Do we know you? [ Siren wailing .]
No, but I know you.
In my profession, it pays to know the enemy.
My name is Daniela.
I'm a witch.
And I know you don't like witches, but I also know you help people who are in trouble.
[ Thunderclap .]
It's ready.
Kevin, what are you doing, getting mixed up with Michael? I don't have a choice.
[ Door closes .]
I'm a prophet, so I serve God, but there's no God to serve, so I serve the ranking deity, which is Michael, because I don't have a choice because I'm a prophet.
Can't you see Michael is a monster? Pure evil? Okay, I'm confused.
Aren't you Satan? Which would make you the evil monster? And besides, Michael's taking me with him to paradise world so I can meet hot women.
I'm sorry.
What? [ Door bangs opens .]
This better work.
Okay, disclaimer? What I'm making is a synthetically generated megaforce [ Door closes .]
which has not been tested, and I've never done it before.
And it should be enough to open the rift, but I can't promise 100%.
Just do it.
Kevin don't do it.
[ High-pitched ringing .]
Mah ray, fay doh, em lah.
[ Ringing continues .]
Kah day, em lah! Kah day, em lah! [ Whoosh .]
[ Guards grunt, cough .]
[ Whoosh .]
[ Panting .]
What just happened?! Clearly, the science wasn't perfect! And wow! The spell's designed to admit one person at a time.
Who saw that coming?! [ Laughs .]
Fix this.
[ Grunts .]
[ Siren wailing .]
[ Sighs .]
[ Indistinct conversations .]
[ Horn honks, traffic passing .]
What is this? Cincinnati? Excuse me, could you tell me where I am? Just a moment of your time, sir, 'cause I-I don't know where Oh, my God.
When are they ever gonna get those people off the street? Excuse me? “Those people?” No eye contact, Beverly.
You have no idea who you're talking to, lady.
And don't go spending it on drugs now.
I'm Lucifer.
[ Snaps fingers .]
Ha! Huh! Honey, you're not Lucifer.
My ex-husband's Lucifer.
Ah! [ Groans .]
Aah! [ Cries .]
Ow! I don't know anything! Don't know anything about what? A-anything at all.
I-I'm a motel clerk from a nowhere town where nothing happens to anyone, okay? Well, then how do you explain how Jack, the infamous nephilim, along with the Brothers Winchester, all stayed in your No-Tell Motel? What are you talking about?! [ Gasps .]
What miracles did you witness? What? Where they going next? The people in Room 26, they were FBI agents, okay? They -- they paid the bill in cash and they left.
I swear to God, I don't know anything.
You're just beating a dead horse.
Not quite.
Wait, wait, wait.
I [ Squish .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Thud .]
Clean this up.
Sir? What is it? I'm sensing something.
Not the nephilim.
Something else.
More like [ Chuckling .]
[ Birds chirping .]
[ Door creaks .]
[ Door creaks .]
You live here? It's a safe house some of us use when we're in hiding.
[ Keys jangle .]
From Hunters, for instance.
It's almost impossible to find.
Yeah, we noticed.
All right, so here's the deal.
Uh, we trust you about as much as you trust us, but we followed you here.
So what's going on? What's going on is, I survived.
He had me, the serial killer you're looking for.
Well, no one he's grabbed has lived.
So why should we believe you? This is how he tortures you, slow cuts with a red-hot knife.
While he was doing it, I managed to get a hand free enough to touch him and whisper a spell, to disable him just long enough to get away.
What did he want? He kept asking the same thing over and over again -- “Where is Rowena MacLeod?” Rowena? Rowena's dead.
That's what I told him.
That's what everybody's been telling him.
That's why he'll keep doing this until he hears what he wants.
Did he happen to have a British accent? [ Cellphone beeps .]
Why? Do you -- Is this him? Yes.
You have to find him.
He has to be looking for me.
He knows I can identify him.
Yeah, we want him, too.
You can't tell anyone that you spoke to me.
Until he's caught, no one can know where I am.
Well, about that I was thinking just the opposite.
[ Owl hooting .]
[ Clocks chiming .]
[ Insects chirping .]
[ Floorboard creaks .]
[ Floorboard creaks .]
[ Clattering .]
[ Canister hissing .]
Oh! [ Gasping .]
[ Rapid gunfire .]
[ Breathing heavily .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Gasping .]
[ Thud .]
[ Coughs .]
I got ya.
I got ya.
All right.
[ Coughs .]
[ Daniela gasping .]
One more time.
How are you not dead? One more time.
Why should I be? Because we killed you.
Apparently not.
Oh! [ Coughs .]
[ Grunts .]
Don't mess with us, okay? You already killed Mick.
You tried to kill us.
You messed our mom right up.
We're already pissed off.
So I wouldn't do that.
[ Crunches .]
Aah! [ Groans .]
Oh, look at that.
You got [ Inhales sharply .]
rid of your tattoo.
Was that a stick-on? It was a stick-on, wasn't it? Yeah.
What? Tattoo? I would never g-- Oh.
I think I know what's going on here.
Really? You have me confused with my brother.
Your brother? Arthur.
I'm Alexander, his twin.
Do I look stupid to you? Is that a trick question? Uhh! Oh! Whoo! So you're seriously gonna sit there with a straight face and tell us that you have an evil twin? If reducing things to that black and white level helps you, fine.
Arthur was the family success story.
Theheadliner, our Donny Osmond.
All right, Marie.
What's your story? [ Sighs .]
Arthur and I attended a feeder school for the British Men of Letters.
We know all about it.
Just get to the point.
When it came time to initiate into the organization, Ifled.
It wasn't for me.
And if they were to find me I'd be dead.
It's really funny because, you know, your name never came up.
Well, no doubt.
Arthur felt I brought shame to the family and to the Men of Letters.
He had to work twice as hard to make up for my public failure.
And I had to work thrice as hard to disappear, live in the shadows.
Do my work.
What work? Killing monsters.
All over the world, for a fee.
A Hunter.
A mercenary.
A man with my sort of training has limited options.
The witches -- who's bankrolling their deaths? I-I'm doing that pro Bono.
Why do you keep asking for Rowena MacLeod? She's a witch, isn't she? Isn't that what we Hunters do? Kill the bad thing? So I've dug up a pretty hefty paper trail on Alexander Ketch.
Birth certificate, U.
visa and passport, academic records from Kendricks for Arthur and Alexander.
Sam Dean, I went into the hard drive I took from the Brits' U.
There are academic initiation papers drawn up for both Ketches with Alexander's remaining incomplete.
Okay, I don't care how good this story looks.
I ain't buying it.
All right.
For argument's sake, we know Mom shot Arthur, and we know we dumped his corpse into the waste canal.
So even if this is weird, yes, it's weird, but we eat weird every day.
Yeah, but there's “Ripley's Believe It or Not!” weird, and then there's weird that's just straight up bull.
Now I'm thinking that Ketch weird is door number two.
[ Laptop closes .]
[ Sighs .]
So even though you and your brother both saw my brother, Arthur, shot point-blank, you still question is demise? Yeah.
It -- it's probably smart to question everything about Arthur Ketch.
Probably, yeah.
I know I'm still trying to figure him out.
[ Chuckles .]
The Arthur Ketch we knew was sadistic.
Amoral, predatory.
Loyal to no one.
You're wrong there.
Not amoral, and actually, loyal to a fault.
What you witnessed was an incredibly good company man.
Not an easy job.
Sounds like it would be easier to be “Alexander” than to be Arthur, yeah? To a degree.
No glory, yes, but no burdens either.
You admire him.
Maybe, uh, wanted to be like him.
Like you, I understood my brother's issues and why he did what he did.
I suspect, if he were here, he'd admit regret to some of the things he did to your family.
Dumah, thank you for agreeing to meet with me.
This is a matter of -- of great urgency.
It's imperative that I locate Jack.
You mean the nephilim.
Do the angels have him? No.
Okay, you're certain that he's not maybe sitting in -- in Metatron's old cell or -- If we had him, he wouldn't be imprisoned.
He would be put to work.
What do you mean? Castiel, the angels Our numbers were greatly diminished after the fall.
No one's made new angels since the dawn of creation.
We're going extinct.
You would need a powerful force to make more of us.
You mean Jack.
Even if he had that power, what makes you think he'd cooperate? He may not have a choice.
So you're planning to enslave him for some kind of experiment? Castiel, he's not your pet.
He belongs to all of us.
You did well, Dumah.
You delivered him as promised.
We hear you have influence with the nephilim.
He'll listen to you.
I will not help you.
Ever the renegade.
Castiel, please, come with us.
[ Grunting .]
Drop the blade, Dumah.
[ Breathing heavily .]
You hesitate? This isn't gonna one of those “make my day” moments, is it? Okay.
[ Coughing .]
[ Hacking coughs .]
What are you doing back in this world? What are you doing alive? It's complicated.
Same here.
Obviously, getting here took its toll.
You're weak.
Yeah, I'm clearly not myself.
But, oh, cowboy, I'm not that weak.
And you and I need to talk.
I have no interest in talking to you.
And if this is about your son -- Okay, I get it, I get it.
Custody of my son is a non-starter.
But if you can please just shelve the eternal enemies thing for a second, we have a situation.
And by “we,” I mean everything alive.
We're sortaall gonna die.
Everything I am telling you is true.
You were there, man.
You saw what that place was like.
The Michael I just described to you is responsible for that.
What? What? What? What? Will you -- will you do me a favor and stop looking at the door every five seconds like you wanna get outta here? You'll forgive me if I'm a little on edge.
The last time we were together, you killed me.
Well, last time we were together, you stabbed me.
I'm sorry.
You wanna dwell on the past? I don't.
I'm not myself anyway.
What am I gonna do? Okay? Look, it's time to save the world.
Be the heroic Castiel instead of the butt of Heaven's joke.
I am not the b-- I'm, you know, just sayin'.
How do I save the world? We.
Oh, no.
Yeah, yeah.
Look, you protected my son.
He trusts you.
If you can convince him to be on our team, I think the combined power of the three of us can drive Michael back.
I'm telling you, this guy is not the same Michael that we knew.
He's much more powerful.
Okay, if this Michael comes -- Not if.
The guy's on a mission.
Well, you would seem to be the weak link on this team.
Okay, that hurt.
Thatwas unnecessary.
I'm gonna let it go.
Yes, my grace is a little bit depleted, but give me time, man.
Work this out with me.
Hypothetically, um, let's say you're lying, and I help you find your son, and then you kill me again.
Cut me a little bit of slack.
Please? That unhinged thing and that meth head Kevin Tran are about to bust through that door.
God isn't here! It's just us.
[ Sighs deeply .]
We're all we got, in case you hadn't noticed.
Well, I-I-I have to talk to Sam and Dean.
[ Groaning .]
Why, why, why, why, why, with all their second guessing and their whining? This is an emergency, Castiel, and all they're gonna wanna do is -- is put me back in the Cage.
That's all I want.
But right now, you need me, I need you, and we both need my son.
Look, not changing the subject, but we'll get back to it.
I just wanna ask you, how did you hide him so well? I mean, I tried to get a bead on him, and no bueno.
Your son's name is Jack.
[ Clicks tongue .]
[ Bell jingles .]
Is he [ Chuckles .]
awesome? I mean, is he a chip off the old block? Thankfully, no.
No, he seems to favor the mother.
All right, that's nothing that we can't fix.
But seriously, I mean, why can't I you know, detect a presence? I don't know.
He He is okay, though, right? Oh, I'm sure he's fine.
Well, you don't sound sure.
Is he -- is he nearby? No.
Somewhere more distant? Yes, more that.
Oh, my Dad.
You have no idea where he is.
[ Pool balls clack .]
[ Cellphone rings .]
[ Ring .]
[ Beep .]
Hello? Yes, this is Agent Russell.
I did give you my card, yeah.
Really? What kind of questions? Okay, and when was this? What did he look like? Yeah, no, we will check into it.
Thank you very much.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
What was that all about? That was a manager at the Stampede Motel, place we stayed in-- in Dodge City.
Guess his front desk clerk went missing right after some dude showed up asking questions about Jack.
You get a name? Nope.
But from his description? Evil Colonel Sanders.
Tracking Jack.
Yeah, which means he's two steps behind him, which means we need to find him fast.
I should say.
What the hell is this? He's in chains.
There's no bathroom in the armory.
And he hadn't eaten in, like, a day and a half.
Do I look like I care? Judging by your rage, my brother must've behaved very badly.
I understand your mother is the one who killed him? And he had it coming, after what he did to her.
And how is she now? She's good.
Would you put him back? Hmm? [ Clears throat, sighs .]
[ Dialing, beep .]
[ Line rings .]
Cass, any news on Jack? We need to find him fast.
Nothing yet, but interesting things are happening.
We What? Yes, I would like to see you, too, the sooner the better.
[ Beep, call disconnects .]
Cass? You know, smooth was never your strong suit.
[ Bell jingles .]
Hey! [ Cellphone beeps .]
What's up? Something didn't seem right.
I'll track his phone.
Let's go.
Yes, let's.
No, you are not a part of “let's”" M-- [ Engine revving .]
[ Beeping .]
Man, I hate the idea of Ketch on his own in the bunker.
He's locked up tight.
Not going anywhere.
How we looking? You still got a lock on Cass' signal? Sure do.
I nailed down his location.
He's not much further, so Don't worry.
You did tell him not to do anything stupid.
When's the last time that's worked? It's bad enough the Winchesters were babysitting my son, but then they managed to lose him? With Heaven, Hell, and everything in between hunting him down? In their defense, they were doing their best to educate him.
About what?! What could they possibly know about an entity like Jack? About his potential? Well, having seen it firsthand, they know that his potential needs to be carefully channeled.
Really? Stephen Emil Dudas: And my blues keep Kid's a bruiser, huh? [ Laughs .]
Come on, man, let me have this a little bit.
Just -- just tell me one thing.
[ Sighs .]
Did he hurt 'em? Did they suffer just a little bit? I [ Thunder rumbling .]
Hey, man.
“Lord Lucifer.
” [ Door closes .]
Lil' Asmodeus.
My onetime stooge.
Runt of the litter.
Uh, dimmest bulb in the string, et cetera, et cetera.
I see you must've taken over Crowley's spot? Yeah.
That's okay.
You can stand down now.
[ Clears throat .]
Skipper's back.
[ Pounds bar .]
Well, here's the thing, Lou.
I'm real satisfied with my current position.
Hell is humming along quite nicely, thank you.
But I do hope you and your little lap angel will pay me a visit.
Yes, well see, that's the thing.
We're all booked up, buddy.
Oh, I won't take “no” for an answer.
Now you know better than to screw with me, Asmodeus.
Oh, I knew better than to screw with the old you.
But this new version seems a little more screwable.
[ Inhales deeply .]
[ Whispers .]
So help me.
Aw, please.
[ Thud .]
[ Electricity crackles .]
[ Door thuds .]
There's nobody here.
Aah! [ Grunting .]
[ Gunshots .]
[ Slices .]
Ah! [ Screams .]
Aah! Aah! [ Electricity crackling .]
[ Screams .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Breathing heavily .]
H-how did you get out of the armory? Y-y-youchains Lock pick.
If you'd done the prescribed cavity search, as you should've, you'd have found it.
I, uh, grabbed some weapons from your toy box and a motorcycle from your garage, et voilà.
What's become of your angel? [ Gun cocks .]
Not sure.
But I am sure about you, Arthur.
You know, I gotta hand it to you.
That paper trail you cooked up, pretty impressive.
But my gut told me it was baloney.
Looks like my gut was right.
See, I've been in it with you, Arthur.
I've seen your moves.
We've gone toe-to-toe.
And I saw that look in your eye when you asked about our mom.
So why don't you cut the crap? Actually, everything I told you is true.
Well, except for the, uh, twin brother thing.
I am separated from the British Men of Letters, lying low because they will kill me for desertion.
I make a rather good living as a sort of soldier of fortune, deep underground, for a certain sort of clientele who appreciate my skill set.
And I do use the name “Alexander”" How is it you're still alive? I believe you're familiar with the witch Rowena MacLeod? So? She was captured by the British Men of Letters some years back.
I discovered she'd sewn a powerful charm into her body that could bring her back should she be killed.
I struck a deal wherein she did the same for me in return for allowing her to escape.
So after we dumped your body, you -- Good as new.
Only problem is, one the device is used, it needs to be recharged.
Which is why you're hunting for Rowena.
Well, sorry.
Lucifer burned her up.
She's dead.
Is she? Why'd you come here? You could've run.
Did it ever occur to you, Dean, that I might actually be one of the good guys? No.
Not even once.
You and I were soldiers in opposing armies who were at war.
Well, the thing about war is, one side wins.
I suppose you're right.
[ Explosion .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Coughs .]
[ Gunshot .]
[ Squish .]
[ Loud clank .]
[ Grunts .]
[ Clank .]
[ Engine revs .]
[ Groans .]
[ Sighs .]
[ Ring .]
[ Ring, beep .]
Hello, Dean.
Cass? Hey.
Are you okay? We -- we -- we tried to track you down, but you were gone.
We ran into a bunch of demons.
What's -- what's happening? I'm sorry.
I'm fine.
I tried to call and warn you, but couldn't get a signal.
Okay, well, what's going on? I'm following a very interesting lead.
I'll fill you in when I know more.
See you soon, Dean.
[ Cellphone beeps .]
[ Normal voice .]
As I was sayin', I'm a collector.
I like to be prepared.
Lucifer could be useful.
Castiel is a card to play if the Winchesters get out of line.
And if there's any truth to the story that a new version of Michael is comin', I will definitely need that nephilim.
You really needn't worry.
