Bobby tells Dean and Sam that Castiel has stolen the Moishe Campbell Diary, but he has a copy. They read the journal and discover that in 1937, H.P. Lovecraft had opened a gate to Purgatory with five worshipers of the devil. Meanwhile Crowley abducts Lisa and Ben to force Dean and Sam to step back. Sam summons Balthazar for help and the angel is surprised by the revelations of the partnership of Castiel with Crowley. While the boys seek out Lisa and Ben, Bobby investigates what happened on 10 March 1937 and discovers the truth about his friend Ellie. Balthazar brings the brothers to an angel-proofed warehouse where Lisa and Ben are held captive. When Dean reaches them, he discovers that Lisa is possessed by a demon.

The Lisa-Ben Story deserved a better send off
9 April 2020 | by CubsandCultureSee all my reviews

I might be alone in this regard but the Lisa-Ben story in season 6 is my favorite aspect of the season. It is Dean at his most different and uncomfortable, i.e. interesting. Overall, I think this storyline is worth telling. There is just something to seeing Dean trying to be a father and partner. (The writers clearly picked up on this given that they expand upon the father idea with Jack) But I don't like the ending of this story. The finality of the resolution is exceptionally harsh and while Ackles sells it well enough it feels like a regression of Dean's character. Moreover, this episode has a vibe of just going through the motions to wrap up a storyline that writers OR fans lost interest in. It is the big disappointment in the season.
