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.

When the doctor opens the apartment door you can see the apartment number is 4. In Japan four is considered unlucky because the word for 4 in Japanese "shi" sounds similar to the word for death "shin". See more
At the end of the episode, Death greets Dean with bacon dogs and beer in Bobby's kitchen and is wearing the 'ring' he came back to get from Dean, but only for the first couple of seconds. When Death is offering Dean a bacon dog the ring is no longer on his finger. Then Dean pulls the ring out of his pocket and tells Death that he flunked the test. 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.
