Supernatural s14e09 Episode Script

The Spear

1 Dean: I know what it's like to see monsters.
Time to slice and dice.
And I know that when they're gone [ Screams ] they never really go away.
[ Screams ] Me and my brother? we're the guys that stop the monsters.
[ Growls ] [ Casing clatters ] We're the guys that scare them.
Dean! [ Grunts ] [ Grunts, groans ] [ Strained voice ] We had a deal! Thanks for the suit.
No! [ Grunts ] Do you propose we wage a war on the humans? Michael: There are ways to enhance yourtalents.
[ Snarling ] Silver bullets aren't working! Sammy.
Rowena: When Jack's grace was taken from him, his being fell into chaos.
The cells are gobbling each other up.
Jack! Jack: Before my life is over, I want to live it.
And when it's all over die.
He's gone.
Castiel: Maybe we should start thinking about next steps.
Wake and a bonfire, Hunter style.
Sam: Michael wants the spear because he knows it can hurt him.
[ Screams ] [ Grunts ] Where is it?! You're no different than him.
I am nothing like him.
Get in the damn car! Castiel: You're the Empty.
[ Grunts ] I'm taking him.
Take me.
Deal.
When you finally give yourself permission to be happy, that's when I'll come.
[ Gasps ] [ Breathing heavily ] Ahhh-ahhh Ahhh-ah Rocking around the Christmas tree At the Christmas party hop Mistletoe hung where you can see Ev'ry couple tries to stop Rocking around the Christmas tree Let the Christmas spirit ring Later we'll have some pumpkin pie And we'll do some caroling You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear [ Glass shattering, woman screaming ] Voices singing, "Let's be jolly" [ Bones crunch, thud ] Man: Oh, my God, no! "Deck the halls with boughs of holly" Please, no! [ Panting ] Rocking around the Christmas tree Have a happy holiday Everyone's dancing merrily In the new old-fashioned way [ Choking ] [ Bones crack ] [ Thuds ] [ Music ends ] [ Thumping echoes ] That was the last of 'em.
Didn't feed, either.
Like you said, about tomorrow? Keeping my "appetite up.
" Michael? Why here? This building, this floor, cleaning it out [Chuckling] and killing everyone? I like the view.
Melanie.
These are the latest volunteers? Yes, sir -- the last ones.
Two wolves.
This one's a bit scrawny and a bit familiar.
I recognize you, Garth.
We've met? 'Cause I think I'd remember that.
Oh, I've spent some time in Dean Winchester's head -- his, um, memories.
You were his friend.
Still am.
Makes one of us.
But I've got a family now.
And there's a war coming -- your war.
And whether I like it or not, for my family -- for my little girl -- I gotta be on the winning side.
- And we're prepared otherwise? - We are.
Tomorrow night, Kansas City won't know what hit it.
Supernatural 14x09 The Spear [ Crunching ] [ Crunching ] [ Spoon clatters lightly ] [ Crunching ] [ Light switch clicks ] Don't tell Sam.
Jack, it's the middle of the night.
Ah, I know.
I couldn't wait till breakfast.
Sam says this stuff will rot your teeth, but - I like it.
- Jack.
If you can't sleep, that's understandable, given recent events.
You mean dying and coming back to life.
Yeah, we've all been through it.
It's something of a rite of passage around here.
That's not -- I've been thinking about Heaven.
My mother.
You think she's safe? Yeah, of course.
But how could the Empty get in? And I thought Heaven was supposed to be perfect.
No.
It's not.
Nothing's perfect, Jack.
But I know Naomi, and she's complicated, but there is nothing that she won't do to protect the souls that are in her charge.
Try not to worry, okay? - Okay.
- Okay.
[ Pats table ] Cass.
The deal you made why can't Sam and Dean know? [ Inhales deeply ] They can.
I I just don't I don't want them to.
They don't need that burden.
- You don't need that burden.
- Of course I do.
You did that for me.
You know, the Empty said that it wouldn't come for me until I had finally given myself permission to be happy, but with everything we have going on, with -- with Michael still out there, I don't see that happening anytime soon.
This life may be a lot of things, but it's rarely happy.
I'm sorry.
Hey.
At least we have Krunch Cookie Crunch.
Yeah.
[ Crunching ] We do.
Did you take the decoder ring out of the box? Maybe.
The secret password is "Cookietacular.
" Shh.
[ Both crunching ] Garth: Sam, that's not all.
They want me to "make the change," become one of them.
-When? -I don't know.
Soon, I think.
Guess that's what she meant by "volunteer.
" Well, did they say how it works? Uh, yeah.
Uh, we're supposed to drink blood mixed with Michael's grace.
Garth, y-you can't do that.
W-We don't know what that stuff does, you know? Look, Sam, I knew this was a risky one.
Besides, I'll just pull the old fake-swallow- and-spit-it-out-later cough-syrup trick.
- What? - Used to work on my mom.
- Garth -- - Well, most of the time.
This isn't your mom, Garth.
This is an archangel.
- Hey, dude! - [ Whispering ] Oh, got to go.
[ Cellphone beeps ] Where'd you go? No, Garth -- Garth? Hey, buddy.
They're ready for us.
[ Sighs ] Balls.
Garth, huh? He'll be okay.
He's fooled Michael this far, right? Dean, I pulled him out of retirement for an undercover mission.
If something happens to him, it's on me.
Okay.
Hey, look.
Naomi gave us Michael's location, okay? We got a spy on the inside -- for a change, we're a step ahead.
And given everything we've pulled off lately, I like our odds.
[ Footsteps approaching ] It's Ketch.
[ Footsteps depart ] Mm.
Valko's compound was a breeze, as it turned out.
Jammed the security system from the outside, sedated the guard dogs -- Rottweilers, naturally - Ketch.
- Hey.
You have it? Sam, Dean.
What, no "hellos", "how are yous"? - No time.
- The egg, Ketch.
And as I was just telling Jack, I did, in fact, manage to expropriate the egg from a certain Hungarian rare-weapons collector.
Yeah, uh, uh, Arpad Valko.
W-We got the messages, but so? Unfortunately, once I got back to Budapest, where I was intending to catch the red-eye back to the good ole U.
S.
of A.
, he unleashed a swarm of mercenaries upon me.
I was cornered, and so I was forced to, I'm afraid, drop the egg like well, to mix a metaphor, like a hot potato.
- Oh.
- You dropped it? Never you mind, boys.
I put it somewhere safe.
In fact, it should be arriving in Lebanon, Kansas, the day after tomorrow between, mm 2:00 and 6:00 p.
m.
You put the only weapon we have against Michael in the mail? Ah, not just any mail.
I paid extra.
Certified Priority Express.
He paid extra.
Look, I improvised.
It's not as if I have access to the top-shelf clandestine courier networks I did during my British Men of Letters days.
And really, so, whose fault is that, hmm? [ Breathes sharply ] Okay, K-Ketch, we're -- we're not mad, - W-We appreciate the effort.
- Do we? It's just that big Michael stuff is going down soon.
We -- We -- We kind of needed the eggnow.
[ Chuckles ] Oh.
Well, um Sorry, chaps.
[ Sighs ] [ Horn honks in distance ] [ Clicking tongue softly ] [ Sighs ] Buddy of mine, he "made the change.
" Says he's immune to silver now.
- Pretty cool, right? - Mm.
The only thing that can take him down now is the Full Ichabod.
- Khhht! - Oh.
Says he's never felt so great.
Called archangel grace, the ultimate powerup -- a real Chug Jug.
Dude, "Fortnite.
" [ Chuckling ] Oh, yeah.
[ Door opens ] Drink up.
[ Swallows ] [ Breathes sharply ] [ Exhales sharply ] You have nothing to fear.
Only about one in seven volunteers explode when they drink it.
[ Chuckles ] Russian roulette odds.
I like it.
Well, sláinte.
All gone? [ Swallows ] [ Gasps ] All gone.
She's been seen taking shelter at an abandoned recycling facility outside Omaha.
What would you like me to do? You feel that, buddy? My pulse is up a bit, and I'm a bit sweaty.
Send a team.
Kill her and destroy the spear.
I want it off the board before tomorrow night.
Damn.
I wish we could sneak off to the gym.
I can feel them drawing closer - Yeah, bro.
- each and every monster I've turned It's different than when I went wolf.
That was, like, white, hot energy, remember? taking their positions throughout the city waiting for my order.
- This? It's Oh, boy, I take it back.
- This is strong stuff.
Melanie: And your order what will it be? - Well? - It's not far.
It's being held at a hub facility in Joplin, Missouri.
Apparently, it would've made it to Lebanon if it weren't closed for the holiday.
Well, if they're closed Means we can get it.
How? We break in.
[ Cellphone vibrating ] Garth.
[ Cellphone beeps ] Hey.
Garth: Hey, Sam.
Michael's sending some guys aftersomeone.
They're headed to an old recycling plant north of Omaha.
Uh, says he wants them to get a weapon.
A spear? That mean anything to you? Uh, yeah.
I have an idea.
But what about you? How are you? Were you able to fake 'em out? Oh, yeah.
All good.
Uh, but -- But what? There's more.
I heard Michael's plan.
The whole damn town? It's gonna be a bloodbath.
All of Michael's monsters activating all at once, attacking, turning everyone in Kansas City? It's his army.
And all on a night when nobody's guard's up -- all nogged up, waiting for Santa.
- Merry freakin' Christmas.
- Yeah, well, Garth said Michael was gonna give the signal at midnight, so if we can get to him before he does Then we can stop this.
And with the spear still in play, that can hurt Michael.
Given as much trouble as he's gone through to find it, it might do worse.
Could be a shot at actually killing the son of a bitch.
And we may be able to trap him.
I mean, Bobby's been working on those angel cuffs.
They might be able to hold him.
Yeah, and -- and getting the egg? I mean, we have Rowena's spell.
We can put Michael back in the Cage.
It's literally a trip to the post office.
Okay, well, getting the spear is literally a trip to the Carter Lake recycling facilities.
I say we get both.
Me and Cass -- we'll go deal with Michael's monsters and get the spear.
You and Jack -- you do your mail run and get the egg.
We'll meet back at Hitomi Plaza with both weapons, and we'll hit him from both sides.
[ Tires screech ] [ Brakes squeal ] [ Engine rumbling ] [ Engine shuts off ] [ Car doors creak shut ] You seem good lately.
Happy, even.
You -- We have a broken tape deck, we drove this whole way without music, and you did not complain once.
[ Car door closes ] You know, I guess I'm just fired up.
I mean, look.
We got -- We got Jack back.
When was the last time we had a big, no-strings-attached win like that? But now we have Michael.
I know.
And, Dean we're taking a big risk going after the spear like this.
I know we are.
Listen to me.
Michael conned me.
Kept me trapped and drowning inside my own body.
Now, when you and Sam were possessed by Lucifer, I -- I thought I understood, but I didn't, not really.
So, yeah, if we get a chance to trap him, I'll take that, but I won't be truly happy until he is dead and I kill him.
And now I have a chance to do that, so, yeah, I'm good.
Let's go.
[ Gun cocks ] [ Door creaks ] [ Door creaks ] [ Electricity crackles ] [ Vehicles passing in distance ] Sam: All right.
That should take care of the security system.
May I? Oh.
Sure.
I used to be able to do this just by touching the handle.
[ Rattling lightly ] Who taught you how to pick a lock? I did.
And the Internet.
I justwanted to stay useful.
[ Rattling continues ] [ Lock clicks ] Nice work.
[ Clattering ] I don't think she's here.
Well, she was.
The food's still warm, so either she took a hike or she's hiding.
Dean, where are Michael's forces? We're going off their Intel, and they had a head start.
And a shorter drive.
Do you think they already got her? Well, there's no signs of a struggle.
The Dark Kaia I know? She wouldn't have gone out without a fight.
It's lighter than I expected.
Yeah, it'll do the job.
[ Door closes ] "Happy Holidays.
" [ Grunts ] [ Distorted grunting ] [ Distorted ] Sam! [ Distorted ] Jack! [ Grunting ] [ Van doors thud close ] Jack! [ Tires screech ] - Jack! - I wouldn't.
Hey, Sam.
Michael.
[ Chuckles ] Happy holidays.
[ Breathes sharply ] [ Chuckles ] [ Breathes sharply ] How'd you find us? What are you gonna do, Sam, hmm? You're gonna kill me, anyways.
[ Grunts ] [ Groans ] [ Coughs ] [ Breathing quickly ] No.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
[ Grunts ] [ Cellphone vibrating ] Still no answer? [ Cellphone rings ] [ Cellphone beeps ] No.
[ Sighs ] I -- Sam? [ Cellphone rings, beeps ] It's Garth.
[ Clears throat ] Hey, Garth.
Hey, Dean.
Uh, I tried to call Sam, but -- No answer.
Yeah.
Us, too.
Yeah.
Um, listen.
Michael left a few minutes ago.
I overheard him say he was going to back up his forces.
Oh, do you mean the "forces" that are supposed to be here at Omaha? Because they are definitely not.
What? Dean, I swear.
Michael said -- It's okay.
Justcall us if you hear anything, okay? Got it.
[ Cellphone beeps ] [ Gasps ] Garth.
Let's talk.
[ Footsteps ] - So, what, was this a setup? - I don't know.
Well, what do we do? Do we -- Do we go to Hitomi Plaza? - Do we go t-to Joplin, Missouri? - Dean! - Why are you here? - Hey.
What do you want? [ Quietly ] Cass.
Cass, no.
You know what we want.
You think you can take this from me? You've tried before.
Look, we didn't come to fight you for it.
I came to ask.
You should know by now I won't give it up.
Well, then, you should just kill me.
There are people that I care about -- my family -- and they're in danger.
Michael, the one who tortured me, the one who tortured you -- he's gonna hurt them and kill them.
And then, worse.
Thousands will die.
And the only thing in this world that will stop him is the spear in your hands.
So if you're not gonna give it to me, kill me.
[ Breathes sharply ] What'll you do for me? What do you want? I want to go back.
- To the Bad Place? - I call it home.
But you came to this world for a reason.
I came here to escape a life of running from monsters.
But here, it's no different, not for me.
Michael's monsters haven't stopped hunting me.
At least over there, I understood things -- the world, my place in it.
The magic I used to get here, magic from my home -- it doesn't work here.
To get back, I need help.
We'll do what we can.
The boy.
The special boy.
The one that used Kaia to open up the door? He can do it again, for me.
Yes, he can.
And he will, if How do I know you're telling the truth? You don't.
Just like we don't know you're telling the truth.
But we do know that you are hiding something.
Like Dean said, you came here for a reason, but if you're so desperate to return, you're so driven that you would consider giving up your spear well, that means you have a new reason, something you're not telling us.
You have people you feel bound to protect, to save.
So do I.
If you don't bring this back to me, I will find you and kill you.
- How will we track you down? - You've done it before.
Do it again.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Cass, hey.
[ Beeps ] Sam? It was Michael.
He knew where we were.
He got the drop on us and destroyed the egg, and, uh Dean, he's got Jack.
- Sam? - Hey.
It was Michael.
He knew where we were.
He got the drop on us and destroyed the egg, and, uh Dean, he's got Jack.
How did you escape? I didn't.
He knocked me out.
I I don't know why he didn't kill me.
- So, what -- is he playing us? - I don't know.
I mean, Garth's not answering my phone calls.
Best guess -- Jack's in Kansas City and that it's still game time for Michael there.
I -- I'm gonna head there now.
Okay.
Hey, we got the spear, so we'll meet you there.
- Great.
-And, Sam -Yeah? don't you go in there alone.
I know.
Drive fast.
[ Cellphone beeps ] [ Engine starts ] [ Doors thump shut ] Why am I here? Why didn't you just kill me? In your present, powerless condition? Why would I bother? Are you familiar with Kansas City -- the people, the terrain? Back in my world, I enlisted a garrison to invade it.
We leveled it.
Death from above.
But there was human resistance.
Things got messy.
I'm trying something different this time -- an insurgency from within.
My monster army turning every last man, woman, and child -- a wave of transformation.
Vampires or werewolves -- it won't matter which.
Everyone they turn will be mine.
No muss, no fuss.
Why would you think I want to hear any of this? I hate you.
Oh, but, Jack, we're family.
You know, in fact, we're the only kin each other has left in this world.
My uncle's in the Cage.
And you -- you're not family.
Well, not literally, no.
Our connection, our relation is more a matter of scale of power.
Haven't you learned yet? In this reality, monsters, humans, even angels -- they are insects, atoms compared to us.
But you [chuckles] -- you're just a child, a mere infant.
For you, the past two years -- the entirety of your existence -- feel like eons.
You don't even know what time is.
But you will.
Real time, the time that makes mountains, that wipes out species.
You'll see it all with me.
No.
Year by year, century by century, and as your power returns and grows, we'll only become more alike.
Oh, I know.
Your loyalty to Castiel, the Winchesters, the rest of humanity? It will fade.
And so will the minor differences -- angel armies versus monster armies, this Kansas City or that Kansas City, one world from another -- they'll fade, too.
Sam, Dean, and Castiel.
They'll come for me.
Mm.
[ Door thumps shut ] [ Elevator bell dings ] [ Festive light jazz music plays ] You have your coordinates? Uh, yes, sir.
The Cathedral on Oak Street -- embed myself in the Christmas mass, wait for Michael's signal.
All right.
You can go now.
[ Grunts ] [ Thuds ] [ Suspenseful music plays ] [ Button clicks ] [ Elevator bell dings ] [ Music continues ] [ Blade slices ] [ Thuds ] [ Sighs ] [ Music continues ] [ Door opens ] - Jack.
- Sam? Hey.
Where's Michael? Ahh.
I don't know.
Come on.
Let's go.
[ Grunts ] Wait, wait, wait, wait.
Shh, shh.
[ Footsteps approaching ] - Garth.
- Hey.
- You're okay.
- Yeah.
[ Exhales sharply ] Great.
Let's get out of here.
[ Elevator bell dings ] All right.
Dean and Cass are almost here.
They got the spear.
As soon as they get here, we regroup, go upstairs - Kick Michael's ass.
[ Groaning softly ] Yep.
[ Groaning ] Sam: Garth? [ Groaning ] [ Gagging ] [ Snarls ] Jack! [ Strained voice ] Oh, Sam.
He's in my head.
He won't stop.
He won't let me stop.
[ Growls ] [ Roars ] - Garth.
- I'm sorry.
[ Snarls ] [ Snarling ] Hey, don't do this.
You don't have to do this.
Garth.
[ Snarling ] [ Grunting ] You can fight this.
You can fight this one.
[ Groans ] Ohh! [ Grunting ] [ Snarling ] [ Grunting ] [ Straining ] Sorry, Garth.
[ Growls weakly ] I'm sorry.
[ Breathing heavily ] [ Thuds ] [ Panting ] Dean: Sleep tight, buddy.
[ Creaks ] Well, thanks for waiting for us.
I didn't have a choice.
He drank Michael's grace.
Why didn't he tell me? I don't know.
[ Breathes sharply ] When Garth turned, I think it gave Michael a window.
I think that's how Michael knew where we'd be, how he got the jump on us.
All right, well, Garth's on ice now.
You know, maybe if we kill Michael, it'll cure him.
Well, I-I called the other Hunters.
They're on their way.
Take care of the city, in case we don't win up there.
[ Festive light jazz music plays ] I wouldn't bet against us, you know? Hyah.
Hyah.
Ah! Whoa.
Ah! I got it.
It's cool.
It's good.
How we looking over there? Good as new.
[ Suspenseful music plays ] Jack.
He's up there, waiting for us.
You know, Michael's monsters are all over this city.
If he feared us in the least, he would've sent some our way.
Yeah, well, he could've killed me back at the shipping facility.
I think he wanted us to come here.
[ "Ode to Joy" plays ] We have to remember -- Michael will sense my approach.
So zero element of surprise.
Walking right into a trap.
Which is set by a full-power archangel.
[ Scoffs ] Impossible odds.
Feels like home.
Let's do it.
Freude, schoener Goetterfunken Tochter aus Elysium Wir betreten feuertrunken Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! [ Decanter thumps lightly ] Come on, fellas.
You're gonna miss the show.
[ Siren wailing in distance ] [ Horns honking in distance ] [ Sighs ] Mm.
There he is.
[ Singsong voice ] Castiel.
You do realize I can feel you in here.
There's really no need to be [ Grunts ] coy.
Michael.
[ Both grunting ] [ Clatters ] Tell me something, Cass.
Why'd you come alone? Advance scout? Strongest player first? [ Grunts ] [ Groaning ] [ Grunts ] Not that strong.
But, hey, if they want to miss all the festivities, well, then that's [ Grunting ] their loss.
[ Groans ] But I got a schedule to keep.
[ Grunts ] [ Grunting ] [ Grunting ] You got it.
I sure did.
[ Grunts ] [ Grunting ] [ Breathes sharply ] [ Choking ] I'm so glad you could make it tonight.
I know you hate me, Dean, but don't forget -- you let me in.
[ Grunts ] [ Grunts ] And now you get to see it -- everything your mistake will make possible -- all the bloodshed, all the death -- all on you.
Dean! [ Groans ] [ Breathing sharply ] [ Grunts ] Trust me.
That's gonna leave a scar.
[ Groaning lightly ] Kill him! [ Dramatic music plays ] Dean? [ Thuds ] Dean? [ Energy crackling ] No.
Yeah.
When I gave up Dean, you didn't think to question it, to ask why? Dean was resisting me.
He was too attached to you, to all of you.
He wouldn't stop squirming -- to get out, to get back.
So I left but not without leaving the door open just a crack.
Why wait? To break him, to crush and disappoint him so completely that, this time, he'll be nice and quiet for a change -- buried.
And he is.
He's gone.
And now I have a whole army out there, waiting, ready for my command, readyfor this.
[ Snapping fingers echo ]
