Despite his increasing weakness, which he ends up claiming to be purifying him from demonic ancestry, Sam convinces Dean they must go on with the triple trial. Crowley gets two demons to impersonate the Winchesters to lure paranoid prophet Kevin away, so he would betray the tablet secrets, but is up for a surprise too. Naomi tracks down Castiel despite a clever trick to hide in a fast-food chain, but he hid the tablet gruesomely well. Finding Kevin missing, apparently dead, the brothers start tracking the tablet's origin to an Amerind tribe, only to stumble upon the author, fallen angel 'scribe of God' Metatron.
