Dean goes to Dr. Robert to have a 3 minutes near-death experience to meet Death. They have a meeting and Death proposes Dean wear his ring for 24 hours; in return, Death would retrieve Sam's soul, return it to Sam's body and put up a wall to isolate his traumatic period in Hell. Dean becomes Death for a day with the guidance of Tessa and soon he learns that the natural order cannot be violated. Meanwhile Sam summons Balthazar to help him find away to keep his soul from being put back, but he must kill Bobby to do it. Written by

Did You Know?
When the heart-attack victim asks Dean what it all means, Dean quotes the Kansas song "Dust in the Wind" (1978), just like Ted does when "philosophizing" with Socrates in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989). See more
In "Frontierland" when Castile needs to heal himself by touching Bobby's soul he makes a point of saying he has to be very careful doing so or Bobby might explode. So it seems strange that both Michael & Lucifer are able to violently abuse Sam's soul in the cage without any such explosive consequences. See more
This is hard for you, Dean. You throw away your life because you've come to assume that it'll bounce right back into your lap. The human soul is not a rubber ball. It's vulnerable, impermanent, but stronger than you know... and more valuable than you can imagine.
