Warning: Spoiler Alert:

According to the current story-arc on The CW Network series “Supernatural,” lots went down in the universe before the Book Of Genesis takes place. In fact according to the show, one could make a comparison between the first book of the Five Books Of Moses and chapter four of Star Wars: A New Hope. Turns out that everything started in a highly competitive relationship between a brother and sister, the sister known as “The Darkness” and the brother known as “The Light.” The sibling rivalry got out of control and the brother with the help of his sons the Arch-Angels defeated the sister and locked her away for eternity and her name never mentioned again.

The brother took on the title of God and created the universe, while the sister’s name became the source of scary bedtime stories told to Angels and demons when they were children to make them behave. She stayed imprisoned due to the force of The Mark Of Cain, a symbol bestowed on the son of Adam and Eve by Lucifer when he killed his younger brother Abel.

The Mark Of Cain kept it’s owner alive throughout history, until he transferred the mark to Dean Winchester two years ago. Dean needed the mark in order to destroy the demon Abaddon and keep her from taking over as Ruler of Hell. Winchester won the battle but The Mark Of Cain started taking control of Dean turning him into a demon. His brother Sam with the help of a witch named Rowena and an Angel named Castiel and Rowena’s son Crowley The King Of Hell cast a spell that removed The Mark Of Cain from Dean’s arm. However it released “The Darkness” in the process and now everybody’s running scared.

Now Dean feels a bond with Amara the physical embodiment of “The Darkness,” she was an infant in October and grew really fast as she appeared as a ravishing woman in her mid-thirties in tonight’s episode. (Emily Swallow takes over the role from Samantha Isler.) Sam’s been getting these visions that he believes God’s sending him instructing him that he needs to go back to Lucifer’s Cage and get Lucifer to help them defeat Amara.

The final episode of 2015 opens in a park in front of a cherub themed fountain as some self-anointed preacher speaks to his followers on a bullhorn and they respond with words of agreement. The adult Amara interrupts the preacher and asks if he’s talking about God and does he really believe that God’s listening? The man’s face turns stern and he proclaims that God’s always listening and always watching and judging. Only the righteous and just will go to Heaven while the rest will burn in Hell.

She laughs derisively and says that God’s not even around and believe her she’s been looking. The man gets even more stern and says you best repent sister and ask forgiveness from God. Only he can create the terrible plagues that torment us. Amara sneers and says you mean like this, raises her hands and the water from the fountain turns into blood. She then lifts her arms over her head  and the sky goes from clear and blue to dark and threatening.

The man stutters and asks is that you, are you testing us? Amara smiles and says she’s not God. However she says he’s not the only game in town. She then raises her hands again and lightning bolts come down and fry each of the people standing around her, then the fountain starts pumping water again and the sky turns beautiful once again. She looks up at the sky raises her arms and asks well?

Sam wakes up and finds himself in Lucifer’s cage with Lucifer standing next to him. Lucifer strokes Sam’s face and smiles and suddenly Sam’s standing in a park in the middle of the day and birds are chirping. He shouts out is this the only answer is this what you want and we hear the sound of flames and a bush combusts. It seems a little hokey for God but Sam takes it as proof God’s communicating with him.

Dean’s totally against the idea and says there’s got to be alternatives, Sammy says he’s open to any suggestions but that seems to be the only plan. If they’re going to be dealing with Lucifer then Dean decides they need somebody that knows the Prince Of Darkness better than anybody. They have a meeting with Crowley and the King Of Hell says he believes they might be able to arrange a meeting between Sam and Lucifer but they’d need the Book Of The Damned to accomplish it. So Crowley arranges two of his minions to capture his mother Rowena.

We’re now in a Catholic Church and we watch a middle-aged Priest talk to his congregants as he walks up the main aisle. Amara’s sitting in one of the pews and when the Priest greets her she says she’d like to set up a meeting with God in an actual room. The Priest chuckles and says she’s in the right place that this church’s his house. She asks how she contacts God and he says just like these other people start praying. Amara tries it for less than 30-seconds and tells the Priest it’s not working and he tells her it is that God heard her. She asks how he knows that and the Priest responds because he promised. She says then you’ve met him and the clergyman chuckles again and says nobody has. At least nobody alive and she asks that’s enough for billions of you to believe in? He responds that’s what faith’s all about, she says that the Priest doesn’t know him and he corrects her and says he certainly does. He says he’s the light that vanquishes the darkness.

Rowena’s led into Crowley’s chamber in manacles with her head covered with a black bag. As if she’s not upset enough dealing with her estranged son she goes over the edge when Sammy and Dean show themselves. She hisses to Crowley they’re the enemy and Dean says we can go back to trying to kill each other after we save the world. They then fill her in on “The Darkness.” After they tell her the plan she asks what guarantee does she have that she can walk away after this and Crowley coldly says you don’t it’s a Devil’s Bargain.

The Catholic Church’s filled with death and blood as Amara devours the Priest’s soul and then flings his body against a marble pedestal. We see bloody corpses all throughout the sanctuary. Suddenly Amara looks at the ceiling and screams look what I’ve done, I’ve killed all your favorites your most devoted followers. She then looses it and screams at the top of her lungs show yourself.

A group of rank and file Angels hold a meeting in an auto-shop and the guy who organized the meeting says they all have to band together and to get past their differences so they can defeat “The Darkness.” One of his buddies laughs derisively and says you’ve never lead anybody in your life. The first Angel responds he’s spot-on none of them have but what good are their leaders doing, they just play the factions off each other and promote discord. He tells them all to spread the word they need to unite and work together now.

Sam’s in the Men Of Letters building with Rowena so she can utilize the codex and Charlie’s code-breaker to decipher the Book Of The Damned. Dean’s wearing his FBI suit and he’s checking out the carnage at the church. He tells Sam not to do anything without contacting him first and that he’s heading back there now. However suddenly Dean starts feeling spacey and things seem distorted as he stands in the park. He turns around and Amara’s standing behind him and grinning she says he sensed her presence and that’s why he’s there. She then teleports the two of them to a secluded spot in the woods for them to talk.

Rowena’s figured out the spell and tells Sam to contact Crowley which he does. He also tries calling Dean but his brother’s too under Amara’s spell to answer the phone. The three of them leave for Hell so Sam can meet with Lucifer. Rowena tells Sammy they don’t have time to wait for Dean.

Dean says to Amara that she’s all grown-up now and she smiles and he asks her if she’s the finished product and she says for today. He then asks her what she’s doing why did she kill so many people in the church and the park? She says she’s got no beef with any of her brother’s creations she’s just trying to get his attention. She then starts talking about the propaganda campaign he’s still waging against her. That he demonized her and made himself into a savior. She says it doesn’t have to be this way. That human’s can live without prayer or pain and feel the bliss that Dean feels whenever they’re together. He asks what she’d get out of this and she says only what she deserves, he asks her what’s that and she replies everything.

Rowena prepares a cage in limbo that will be able to contain Lucifer and then she invokes some spells. The symbols she put on the cage light-up and flames start shooting up from the ground all around the cage. Suddenly a figure appears in the cage and doesn’t look human at first, sporting green-skin glowing red eyes and pointed ears almost resembling the Gollum. However he soon appears as our old friend Mark Pellegrino reprises his role as the Prince Of Darkness. He smiles when he sees the King Of Hell and says my old friend Crowley. Crowley responds he’s just a devoted acolyte carrying the torch. Lucifer responds that Crowley’s being too kind, to himself. Suddenly Lucifer smiles in earnest when he sees Sam. He whispers Sam Winchester my old roomie. Want to hug it out?

Lucifer asks Sam why he’s come to visit him and Sam tells him about “The Darkness” and that he’s come seeking his help. Lucifer says he remembers it was tough defeating her eons ago and doesn’t know if he could do it again. He then asks where’s God while all this is going on and Sammy says it appears that God’s split and left no forwarding address. However he’s been sending Sam visions that have sent him looking for help from Lucifer. Lucifer says he’s willing to help if Sam becomes his vessel. Sam says that means he’d disappear while Lucifer would take over his body and wreak havoc topside and Lucifer nods, Winchester says it’s not happening.

Dean somehow summons the strength to try to defeat Amara and he takes out his Angel Blade and tries stabbing her in the abdomen but the blade shatters like glass. She chuckles and says he must have realized that wasn’t going to work. She says she knows that he’s a warrior and his natural instincts to resist but he can’t resist her. She then looks as if she’s going to devour Dean’s soul but instead she kisses him and he kisses her back.

He asks her what just happened and she said that’s a preview of the future and the culmination of the feelings they’ve both had since they met. She says they’ll soon be together and he says she’s way off base. She replies that he can deny it all she wants but they soon shall be one. Suddenly three of the Angels from the meeting appear and they tell her that they’re taking her into custody. The leader then says that if she kills them that every Angel in Heaven will then fire a bolt at her at the exact same time and even she won’t be able to survive that. She looks at them with contempt and then quickly takes them out.

The sky grows dark and lightning starts to appear. Dean asked her what she did and he says they will smote you, she says maybe I’ll finally get my brother’s attention. She teleports him back to the park just before a shaft of white light comes down from the sky and envelops her.

Lucifer apologizes to Sam but says desperate times call for desperate measures and Winchester responds it’s not desperate it’s certifiable. Lucifer laughs and tells Sam that he and Dean are working with Crowley, they passed certifiable three exits ago. Sam once again says he won’t give into Lucifer and there needs to be another solution. Suddenly the symbols on the cage stop glowing and the fire goes out. Crowley asks Rowena what’s happened to the protection spell and she tells him that it’s time to leave.

Suddenly Sam finds himself in the cage with Lucifer, which means he’s trapped. Lucifer asks if he wants the top or bottom bunk or would he rather share. The screen goes black and the story returns on January 20.

Warning: Spoiler Alert

An Angel approaches a demon in a bar, after each displayed threatening gestures towards the other guy they sit down together and share a drink.  Both express disdain at how ineffective their management’s been at combatting the Darkness. The demon says that the King Of Hell’s just dithering about doing who know what and the Angel complains that since Hannah died Heaven’s been a “Suck-Sandwich.” That succinctly sums up the state of affairs in the “Supernatural” universe in the third episode of season eleven. Because to borrow from Bob Dylan something is happening and you don’t know what it is, do you Mr. Crowley?

Once again the King Of Hell tries to exploit a situation only to see it become far too complicated for him to handle. Last season Crowley attempted to guide Dean Winchester when he went dark-side, before he realized he couldn’t control the man he claimed as his “Bestie.” As the series’ new campaign gets rolled out, Crowley’s trying to cultivate an alliance with Amara the little girl who embodies the Darkness. By the conclusion of this episode the King Of Hell’s starting to realize he’s dealing with a lot more than he bargained for.

We  start out the evening with the first appearance of Crowley’s mother and the self-proclaimed most powerful witch on the planet Rowena. She lights a candle and then dramatically says

“They shall know us far and wide and fear us and we’ll be known as the Mega-Coven”

The camera pans back to reveal three witches standing in front of her. She explains to the three women that she’s attempting to one-up the Grand-Coven that’s been stuck in neutral since their High Priestess disappeared last year. The other three witches are far from impressed by Rowena and she tries to dazzle them by saying she killed her own son the King Of Hell. The three women laugh and one says that a friend of hers struck a deal with Crowley the previous afternoon. Rowena’s furious when she hears the news.

The trio tell their hostess they don’t think much of her or her idea of a Mega-Coven and start to leave. Rowena recites an incantation and soon the women’s skin starts getting blotchy, they scream and then disintegrate.

We see Dean back in the Darkness with the adult version of Amara, it’s just a flashback as he thinks back to seeing the tiny Mark Of Cain on the baby and on the woman. He recalls her telling him that they’re bound together, he helps her and she helps him. Suddenly Sam’s voice brings him back to the present as they’re in the Men Of Letters Building talking about the Darkness with a manacled Castiel.

The spell that Rowena cast in last year’s season finale’s getting tougher and tougher for Cas to fight off, hence him being in chains. They’ve got two beings they’re trying to locate, Rowena so she removes the spell from the Angel and Metatron whom they hope has some knowledge of the Darkness as he was God’s scribe. Suddenly Castiel goes into a seizure and falls on the floor. He blacks out and he’s back in control when he comes to he says he felt like he was a tomato in a blender set to purée.

The King Of Hell’s informed by one of his minions that they’ve located Rowena and Crowley sends the lackey out to execute her. Amara’s sitting at a desk with a laptop, her nanny informs Crowley that the girl’s watching Hitler’s speeches translated into English. She says it’s remarkable how much she’s picked up considering she was in diapers a week before. Crowley asks the child if she wants anything and she says she just wants the King Of Hell to protect her from God. She says the last time he locked her away, when Crowley asks her how he did that she says she doesn’t want to talk about it. Crowley tells her as long as she’s with him she’s safe from God.

Rowena tries a recruiting lunch at a restaurant with two more witches from the Grand-Coven they’re just as unimpressed with her plans as the three other women were. Then Rowena asks if she mentioned she owns the Book Of The Damned and the codex? Their interest now piqued one woman asks if Megan-Coven members get use of the Book while the other asks if she could be an officer in the Mega-Coven? Rowena starts to smile but it’s short-lived as Crowley’s lackey dressed as a waiter slits one of the witches throats. Rowena utters an incantation then runs into the kitchen blocking the demon from following her by clogging it with tables and chairs and she escapes.

Little Amara stands in front of a full-length mirror and her adult self appears on the other  side. The grown-up Amara tells the youngster she must remain focused and that she represents what the child will become. She then tells the child that they’re mightier than God, Crowley walks into the room and just sees Amara staring at her reflection.

Dean and Sam read about Rowena’s incident at the Café Elta in Denver, and use their FBI  shields to interview the remaining witch that the police got in custody. Once they’re alone with her in the room they cut right to the chase, telling the woman they know she’s a witch that she’d been at lunch with Rowena and the King Of Hell’s looking to execute his mother. They coerce the woman to use a tracking spell to locate Rowena and she sees her packing her bags as she’s trying to flee town.

Crowley tells Amara that he’s got two gifts for her, the first’s a frilly pink party-dress in her size with a blood stain on the front. The other’s  a children’s pop-up book about a bunny, the child smiles and says she prefers the book she got from her Nanny. Dante’s Inferno in the original Italian.

Amara tells Crowley she’s hungry and the Nanny comes over with a pastry cart full of treats. The child gets up from her chair and holds out her arms to hug her Nanny and the young woman bends down to hug her when Amara sucks out the Nanny’s soul leaving her meat-suit lifeless on the floor.

Rowena’s wearing a platinum-blonde wig as she waits in the parking lot with her suitcases for a taxi. The cab arrives and the driver’s wearing a cap that’s pulled down but it doesn’t  take Rowena long to realize its Dean and she flicks her wrist and he’s thrown against a wall. Just then Sam arrives and puts witch-proof handcuffs on her, she says he knows these don’t hold her for long and he responds they’ll hold her long enough for their purposes.

Crowley’s trying to endear himself to Amara and keeps providing a series of demons for her to consume their souls. The King Of Hell sits next to her looking pleased and the child says that God created a world where people suffer and they die and asks why people would want to live like that? Crowley says that together they can reconstruct the world and turn everybody evil. Amara looks at him quizzically and asks if that’s what he really wants? Crowley contemplates that for a minute then says his greatest satisfaction’s watching greed and want turn people evil. Amara says it’s more than about Heaven and Hell and people and Crowley asks her what else is there? She says he’s missing the big picture and says she’s hungry again.

Rowena and “THE BOYS” arrive the Men Of Letters building and Dean tells Sam to grab Castiel so Rowena can break the spell. When Sam leaves the room the witch says to Dean that he forgot to thank her for removing the Mark Of Cain from his arm. Dean’s eyes get dark and she asks what’s troubling him so  and what did Dean Winchester unleash upon the world? We realize she’s clueless about the Darkness.

Sam returns saying that Cas escaped and the three of them get into the Impala and track the Angel via the GPS on his cellphone. Rowena says that if Sam kept his word that they wouldn’t be  on this ridiculous chase and Dean asks what she’s referring to. Always enjoying stirring up a hornet’s nest the witch tells Dean that Sam promised to kill Crowley if she rid Dean of the Mark. It looks like the brother’s are going to get into another argument about keeping secrets, when they locate Cas.

The Angel’s looking rough as he walks through an alley. We see a young woman walking through the same area and she turns around to see Castiel standing behind her and growling. The woman tries to flee but every door she sees is locked until she’s lucky enough to find a steel-reinforced door to  a warehouse unlocked and she hides in their and locks the door. Castiel soon realizes where she’s hiding and he’s able to bash down the door and get into the building.

The lackey that failed to kill Rowena’s now Amara’s new nanny complete with apron. Crowley tells him he’s doing a remarkable job, but the lackey tries to get reassigned. The King Of Hell says his choices are staying in his present position or roast on a spit for all of eternity. He then tells the nanny that they’re going to cut back  on Amara’s soul-intake as they don’t want her growing too fast. He tells the lackey that it’s his job to break the news to the child.

Sam Dean and Rowena are in the alley looking for Cas when they hear a repeating banging sound coming from one of the building’s and Dean takes off to investigate it telling Rowena and Sam to follow him. The witch says she can’t do any running in heels.

Castiel finds the woman and at this point the Angel’s lost  all  control and he’s like a raging animal. He grabs the young woman by the throat and starts choking her but Dean shows up a couple of seconds later and somehow talks Cas into letting the woman go. After she runs away Dean tries to calm the Angel down but Cas starts mercilessly pummeling Dean until we hear Rowena’s voice utter the first word of her incantation.

She stands there silently and Sam holds a pistol to her head saying the gun’s got witch-killing bullets in the chambers. She completes the recitation and Cas falls to the floor unconscious. As Dean rushes to his side Rowena makes her escape.

Back in the Men Of Letters Building Dean’s holding an ice-bag against his bruised and swollen face and trying to kill the pain with beer. Cas says that there aren’t words to express how sorry he is. Dean says none are needed as it was the spell that Rowena cast on him that made him attack Dean.

The final scene’s in Crowley’s throne-room as he walks in and sees the dead body of the nanny lying on the floor. He walks into Amara’s room and she’s morphed again this time into a teenager of about 13. She tells Crowley that she’s hungry and he says she’ll get fed soon, but first they need to talk. Amara glares at Crowley and repeats that she said she was hungry and the screen fades to black.

The Story Continues Next Wednesday Night at 9:00 pm on The CW.

Warning: Spoiler Alert

We have seen the “Darkness” and she is beautiful and deadly. Welcome to season 11 for the CW Network series “Supernatural,” as Sam and Dean Winchester take on a foe, that’s been locked away since before recorded time. In the season finale that aired in May, Rowena cast a spell that removed the Mark Of Cain from Dean’s arm. However that resulted in the creature known as the “Darkness,”  to escape from prison and walk the earth once again. As we witnessed in this season-opener the “Darkness” takes on many forms and has already started to infect humans.

After running a montage of clips from last season, as John Fogerty’s classic “Run Through The Jungle” played in the background. We then watch Dean standing alone in the darkness as the camera rapidly shows us different angles of his face. He looks behind him and sees a woman in a black cocktail dress standing with her back to him, Winchester calls out what the Hell’s going on and the woman turns her head to glance at him.

The scene switches to Sam passed out in the Impala as the horn blares finally waking him up. Sammy gets out of the car pops the hood and disconnects the wires for the horn, then he realizes that Dean’s not in sight. He starts calling for his older brother and then starts looking for him.

Dean’s passed out in a field about a mile from the car when Sam finds him. Dean can’t remember what happened for a few seconds, but then the events start flooding back into his head. He tells his brother she saved me, when Sam asks who he’s referring too Dean tells him the “Darkness.” Then he tells Sammy she also thanked him for setting him free. Sam asked if she said anything else and Dean said no she was strange. She had this energy and focus about her but she wasn’t much of a talker.

Castiel’s sitting in a barn, the bleeding from his eyes stopped but both eyes are very bloodshot. He’s thinking back to his attacking Crowley after Rowena cast a spell on the Angel. The King of Hell tries fighting back but Castiel knocks him to the ground and then sticks his blade deeply, in between Crowley’s shoulder blades. However after replaying the scene over in his head he realizes he didn’t kill Crowley. The demon left his meat-suit as a red gas through his mouth, before Castiel stabbed him.

A father and his two teenage sons are outside the barn carrying shotguns and the youngest son discovers Castiel in the barn. Cas yells to the young teen to run for his life as he can’t control his actions, but the kid aims his gun at the Angel. Castiel wrestles the gun away and knocks the kid to the floor as he runs the father and older brother fire shots at him.

Sam and Dean get the Impala out of the mud and drive to the outskirts of a Nebraskan town, when they see the road’s filled with dead bodies. A road-crew’s members are all over the ground and in a car next to them there’s a dead family, the parents and two young girls. Suddenly The Boys hear a noise behind them and a man infected by the “Darkness” starts walking toward them. He seems to be in a trance and there’s some dark-blue almost black veins protruding from his neck. Dean asks the guy to stop twice as the brothers have their guns aimed at him but he keeps walking. A shotgun blast rings through the air and the man falls face down on the ground. He got taken out by the young Deputy-Sheriff on the scene Jenna Nickerson.

Nickerson tells them that she responded to a 911 call from the family, as they drove by the road-crew stopped their car and started attacking them like rabid dogs. She said she knew the boys and that’s why she didn’t fire until they killed the family, she then shot them all dead and has a deep gash in her belly. Dean says they need to get her to a hospital to get her stitched up.

They get to the hospital and everybody’s dead there as well. Dean wheels Jenna into the hospital in a wheel-chair and Sam tells his brother to go stitch up Nickerson’s gash while he explores the hospital. Dean starts sewing up the deputy’s wounds and she says how terrible she feels having killed the road-crew. Winchester tells her they weren’t human any longer and she did the right thing.

Sam’s scoping out the hospital when he hears an infected man trying to break into the janitor’s closet. The guy’s denting the door but he can’t get in, suddenly Sam makes a noise and the monster starts heading towards Sammy. Winchester’s got his pistol ready, but just before he turns the corner there’s a cry from the janitor’s closet and he starts banging on the door again.

As Dean stitches up Jenna he goes back to being with the “Darkness” in his mind. We head back to Dean meeting with the “Darkness” and he asks her now that you thanked me what’s next? She replies she likes it there with him, she hasn’t felt this peaceful in a long time. Winchester responds he’s not interested in making her feel peaceful and tells her he knows who she is. The beautiful dark-haired woman smiles and says she’s been away so long, she didn’t think anyone would remember her. Winchester replies that Death painted a pretty detailed picture of her. She replies she’s never met Death, or he her. Dean asks if that means he shouldn’t kill her right away and she asks him why he’d want to?

The infected man collapses and dies, Sam approaches cautiously holding his pistol. When he’s convinced the guy’s dead he knocks on the janitor’s closet door and says hello, a man’s voice from the other side asks if he’s dead. Sam says the infected man’s dead and he’s with the FBI and slides his badge under the door. Sammy breathes deeply when the man opens the door, he’s a guy in his early twenties holding his newborn daughter. He asks Sam to please help them.

An attractive upscale middle-aged woman’s parking her car when the red smoke enters her mouth and takes over her meat-suit. She looks at herself in the mirror and says bollocks, then grabs a tire-iron out of the trunk and says it looks like it’ll be the old-fashioned way. When she enters her house, the woman’s husband tells her for a birthday present they and another couple are going to “change-partners.” Crowley puts down the tire-iron.

Back at the hospital the new father named Mike, tells them that his wife was expected to have a difficult delivery, but she delivered their daughter just fine. However shortly after giving birth, she started hemorrhaging and the doctors couldn’t save her. He then told them that other members of the road-crew drove up to the hospital and started attacking everybody like a pack of rabid dogs. He sais he grabbed his daughter and hid in the janitor’s closet. Dean says they’re getting out, but another car of infected people drives up to the hospital.

The five of them hide out, but Sam suddenly notices the dark-blue veins are showing up on Mike’s neck. Sam asks if one of the infected may have bled on him and he says he thinks Mike’s infected. Jenna says that Sam doesn’t know what he’s talking about, but Mike says he’s right. He just wants to know how long it’ll take until he turns like them? He then asks Jenna to raise his daughter, he says he’s watched her grow-up and knows she’s a good person. He says if she agrees to do that he’ll leave the hospital and wait things out by himself and Nickerson says she will.

Castiel’s in the woods with cruisers parked on the street looking for him and the Angel can’t control his emotions, so he calls out to his fellow Angels to keep him from doing something bad. He then calls Dean and tells him that Rowena stole the codex and The Book Of The Damned and Dean says the Hell with Rowena what about the “Darkness“? Castiel has no idea what he’s talking about and just then two Angels arrive holding blades and Cas says goodbye.

Two of Crowley’s minions arrive at the woman’s house and they find the woman’s husband and the other couple dead. Crowley asks if they transported his meat-suit back to his throne-room and they tell him they have. Crowley tells them to head back there and wait for him.

Dean wants to go on the offensive but Sam’s against the idea. He asks his brother when they forgot how to do it and instead of saving people their credo’s become kill first and ask questions later. Dean asks him what Sam proposes and he replies that the infected people have a short shelf-life and will die on their own. His brother responds they don’t know how long that’ll be and what if others show up? Sam says they can try to search for a cure and Dean responds they can’t find a cure if they’re dead. Sam then says he’ll play decoy for the infected people, so Dean can get Jenna and the infant to the Impala.

The three head to the car while Sam calls the infected people and starts running leading them on a chase through the hallways. Dean and Jenna get to the front doors when Mike walks in and the veins have spread all across his neck. He says the baby and Dean tells him he needs to leave the baby alone. Mike tells them the baby’s name’s Amara and then heads into the hospital and falls to the floor dead.

When Sam’s certain Dean’s left the parking lot he dives into the Janitors closet and locks the door, unfortunately this time there’s three people trying to open it. Sam steps back a bit and starts thinking about his options, when we realize there’s an infected nurse in there with him. She grabs a scalpel and tries to stab him, but he overpowers her and slits her throat. She dies instantly, but he’s covered with her blood.

The infected trio knocks down the door and start to attack Sam, but they stop and start sniffing him. They look at each other and they walk away. It seems that Sam’s now infected with the “Darkness.

The red smoke enters Crowley’s meat-suit’s mouth and he stands up and smiles and announces Daddy’s home. One of the minions tells him that he’s got a problem to deal with, there’s a large segment of Hell that believes the “Darkness” has gotten released. Crowley laughs derisively and says it’s just a fairy-tale, a story Demon fathers tell their children to make them behave. His lackey responds that many say they hear Michael or Lucifer screaming from the cage they’re trapped in about the “Darkness.

The two Angels take Castiel to a warehouse, they tell him the Gates to Heaven got moved after he broke Metatron out of Heaven’s jail. Cas tells him before they take him back to Heaven. they need to find a witch to remove the spell from him, but he soon realizes when they hang him by his hands on a hook they don’t plan to take him back.

Dean’s gotten Jenna and Amara to safety and so he goes back in his head to finish his experience with the “Darkness.” He asks her if she’s so dangerous why hasn’t she killed him and she tells Dean they have a bond. She shows him a tiny version of the Mark Of Cain on her upper chest. She says you help me and I’ve helped you, we watch out for each other. Although her name’s never mentioned in the episode, the IMDB page for the episode lists her name as Amara.

Dean calls Sam and asks how things went and Sam tells him he’s fine and he’s going to find a cure, his brother responds he’s sure he will. He then tells Sam that he’s got Jenna and the baby relocated to a town about 40-miles away with no signs of the outbreak. Sam says it’s likely just started in that area and Dean says he’ll see his brother soon. When Sammy hangs up we see his necks covered in the dark-blue veins.

Jenna’s changing Amara’s diaper and both the new mom and the infant are smiling. As she’s cleaning her new daughter up before putting back on her pajamas we see a tiny Mark Of Cain on the infant’s upper chest.

The Story Continues Next Wednesday Night at 9:00 pm on The CW.
