Then: Five long weeks ago, Supernatural aired its last new episode.  Sam and Dean both said they were OK when they clearly weren't after engaging in an epic fight with words and weapons thanks to a Man Siren.

Now: A mugging at a bar goes awry when the victim gets shot int the chest. The mugger flees, and the victim gets up, perfectly fine. The Winchesters are called in to investigate people not dying. Sam (Jared Padalecki) tries to go, but Dean acts like a passive aggressive tool and wonders if Sam really wants him to come even though he's not as good of a hunter as his little brother. I guess things aren't OK after all.

Sam and Dean show in the the small Wyoming town posing as bloggers for (save your time, because I already checked and, sadly, it's not a real website). Sam wonders if the mugging victim visited any crossroads or encountered any red-eyed people lately.

Some computer research reveals the last person in town to die was a little kid named Cole. Sam thinks maybe the reaper is gone for some reason, so he decides to hold a seance and talk to the dead kid.

Dean (Jensen Ackles) has issues with this, because if they do bring the reaper back, a lot of good people could die. Sam says that's the natural order of things, and Dean points out the hypocrisy of two formerly dead brothers talking about the natural order of things.

However, these two brothers are far from normal, since one has demon blood and the other was saved from Hell by an angel. As Sam points out, they're not exactly Joe the Plumber, which forces Dean to add “Joe the Plumber was a douche.” Agreed.

Their seance is cut short when a creepy guy shows up to threaten them, Dean senses that this is Alastair in a different meatsuit, and Alastair flings Dean to one side. Unfortunately for him, Sam has been training hard on his dark arts, so he manhandles Alastair like a ragdoll before the Black Smoke Demon runs away.
