Jimmy and his family are rescued, but Jimmy realizes that he needs to go with Sam and Dean and keep his family safe by making them hide.  Unfortunately, a demon possesses Jimmy's wife and has other plans.  She calls him up and demands he come back or she'll kill Jimmy's daughter.

They arrive at the meeting place and Jimmy goes outside to yell up at Castiel that he was promised his family would be safe.  Jimmy goes inside and is taken by his demon wife, who also snatched up the Winchesters.  Then Demon Wife shoots Jimmy in the stomach and orders her minions to kill the daughter.  And that's when things get crazy.

Castiel makes his return, only this time it's in Jimmy's daughter's body.  Little Girl Cas immediately starts killing demons and kicking ass.  I guess her awesomeness helps offset the creepiness of Lilith.  During the melee, Sam takes one of the demons, cuts her open, and starts drinking the demon blood to get his fix.  The rest of the action stops as Dean and Little Girl Cas just stare at the disturbing image of Sam feeding on a demon.

Luckily, however, this newfound demon blood energizes him enough to kill the demon inside Jimmy's wife without injuring her.  It's a lot like when people claim that they drive better when they're drunk.  Dean is all-around disgusted.

Little Girl Cas looks in on the dying Jimmy, who demands that Castiel not ruin his daughter's life.  He begs for Castiel to re-enter his body, but he's warned that this time it would be permanent and he'd never get to be Jimmy again.

He's OK with it, because he's willing to sacrifice his own life to protect his daughter from the pain of being an angel's vessel.  He's a much better parent than Eloise Hawking, that's for damn sure.

With Cas back in his proper vessel, Dean asks what was so important that he wanted to tell him.  Cas, however, refuses, stating that when he was called back to Heaven, he learned his lesson and is no back on the righteous path, obeying Heaven and not man.
