THEN: Dean cried when he learned he was responsible for breaking the first Seal.  Sam killed Alastair thanks to drinking some of Ruby's demon blood.  Anna killed Uriel and helped convince Castiel it was time to go rogue.

NOW: Dean wakes up, but this is not the Dean we know and love. He’s in a nice suit, drinks a soy latte, and drives off in his Prius while listening to NPR. He works in an office where his nameplate says Dean Smith. He eats salads and talks about diet plans and his love of Project Runway. The saddest part is that I could actually envision myself being friends with this Dean.

At the end of the day, he takes off and bumps into Sam in the elevator. Sam stares at Dean for a long time and asks if they know each other. Dean thinks this strange tall dude is flirting with him and he wants no part of it.

The next day, we see that Sam is actually Sam Wesson, a tech support guy in the office. Smith and Wesson, that’s pretty funny. Sam plays with a vampire bobblehead while fending off the creepiness of Ian, a co-worker who wants to sleep with a GMILF. If you don’t know what that is, you’re better off. Apparently Sam has freaky dreams about saving a grim reaper named Tessa. Ian dismisses him before getting an e-mail telling him to report to HR.

Sam and Dean bump into each other in the elevator once again, and after straightening out the fact that neither of them is into any gay stuff, Sam asks Dean if he believes in ghosts or vampires. Sam talks about his weird dreams and Dean tells him that he overshares.

Paul, another guy in tech support who recently came back from human resources, loses all his data on his computer and freaks out. He spends the whole night trying to recover it, but it doesn’t work. That night he takes a plastic fork, shoves it into the microwave and sticks his head in it, zapping his brains out.
