In This Episode…
Dean is drinking alone at a bar when Crowley shows up with a proposition. He wants to team up with Dean to kill Abaddon. Crowley claims there is something called the First Blade that can kill her, which he has been hunting for decades with no luck. Rumors persist that John Winchester had some info about it, so Dean, reluctantly, checks his dad’s journal and sure enough, there is an entry. This entry leads them to John’s storage locker, where Dean finds a file that refers to the First Blade when John and another hunter named Tara were interrogating a demon. They track down Tara, who is understandably suspicious that a Winchester is working with Crowley. John thought the First Blade was just a legend, but Tara believed it to be real.
