Sam and Dean face off against an evil angel statue.

Cemetery - middle of the night
Four high school kids are sitting around a campfire, drinking and partying.

BOY 1
Yea! High school's over!

GIRL 1
I'll drink to that!

ALL
Yea!

One kid throws his beer into the fire. With a crash, the bottle explodes and a ball of fire erupts over the wood for a moment. Everyone cheers and laughs. All the kids are having a great time.

Suddenly, the kids hear another loud crash, this one from deeper in the woods.

Boy 2
What the hell was that?

BOY 1
Let's check it out.

GIRL 2
You guys, no! What if it's the cops or something?

GIRL 1
Yea, hide the beer, quick!

BOY 1
It's not the cops, no one is ever out here. C'mon.

The girls reluctantly follow. The kids reach a clearing in the cemetery. Everything is dark, except a black angel statue, seen perfectly in the moonlight. The statue is large and ominous, with the angel standing on a pedestal, looking downward and aiming her wings towards the earth, as if hovering over the grave site.

BOY 2
Woah, check it out.

BOY 1
Creepy, man. Who would make a statue like that?

The kids get closer and see that it is covered with a layer of black dirt. The boys scratch at the gunk and realize how old this statue must be.

BOY 2
Looks like it's ancient. Prolly hasn't been cleaned in forever.

BOY 1
I can take care of that!

Boy 1 turns to the statue and gets ready to piss on it. Boy 2 laughs as the girls complain.

GIRL 2
Billy, what the hell?! You're disgusting!

BILLY
haha!

GIRL 1
It's prolly cursed, too.

GIRL 2
(playfully)
Yea, it's gonna come after you now and kill you in your sleep or something!

BILLY
Ha! Bring it on, "Angel of Death"!

Boy 2 laughs while the girls try to ignore the situation. One of the girls begins to slowly head back to the fire.

GIRL 1
The fire's goin' out, we should probably head home.

BOY 2
Yea, we're out of beer anyway. C'mon Billy.

BILLY
Alright, let's go.

The kids begin walking towards their car, parked near the road. All four of them are stumbling along and laughing, clearly too drunk to drive.

BOY 2
Who's good to drive?

BILLY
I'm probably the least drunk here, so I probably should.

GIRL 1
Really, Bill?

Billy gets the keys from Girl 1, but drops them as he goes to unlock the door. The group laughs.

BILLY
(laughing at himself)
Hey, I'm still the LEAST drunk out of all of us, alright? Geeze!

The car pulls away from the cemetery. As the car reaches the road, we see the pedestal that held the statue is now empty.




EXT CAR - DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD
The car speeds down the road, going around dangerous corners at incredible speed. The vehicle shoots around a corner, flinging dust and stones into the air. The kids inside are still celebrating.

BILLY
Yea! I love it out here!

ALL
Woo! Speed up!

The car comes around a turn and slides into the opposite lane. Suddenly, another car appears driving right for the kids. They all scream, when Billy cuts the wheel and gets back to his lane just in time. Dust and Rocks fly across the road. The group is clearly shaken up by the event.

BILLY
Oh, crap that was close!

GIRL 1
Maybe we should slow down.

BOY 2
Yea, man, seriously.

BILLY
Yea, maybe you're right. I mean, I didn't even see that.....

Billy is interrupted when a boulder falls from the hillside onto the road right in front of the car. With no time to react, the car hits the rock, flips over and lands top down on the other side. The shattered car screeches across the road and comes to a stop. The car lays motionless on the road, with no movement from inside. We then see a winged figure standing on the cliff above the accident, and it flies out of view.




OPENING CREDITS


Sam and Dean are heading down a road in Virginia. They are on their way to look into a haunting.

DEAN
This next kill should be easy enough.

SAM
I hope so. Not like that last one.

DEAN
Aww, what are ya talking about, Sammy? That last one was fun!

SAM
Heh, maybe for you. You weren't covered in poltergeist slime after we thought it was just a ghost.

DEAN
Yea, but you still smell minty fresh, do ya?

Sam laughs it off as the brother continue talking.

DEAN
Well at least I'm here to save ya, Sammy.

SAM
Yea, but you won't always be.

DEAN
(beat) What's that supposed to mean?

SAM
I dunno, Dean. What we do everyday. It's not exactly the safest profession.

DEAN
I know that.

SAM
And someday, chances, are (beat) One of us won't make it. And if it's you, I gotta know that I'm ready to do this on my own.
DEAN

Don't worry, nothing is gonna happen to me, alright?

SAM
How can you be so confident, though? I mean (beat) everything we hunt wants us dead, but now so many of these things want you dead more than me.

DEAN
Yea, but I'm too good for them to get me.

SAM
And what if you're not? huh? Then what? Then I;' on my own and (beat) let's be honest, I'm not as perfect at this as you are.

DEAN
Don't worry, nothing's gonna happen, and if anything does, you'll be fine on your own.

SAM
I don't know, man, I wanna believe that, but (beat) AAAAAH!

DEAN
What? What is it?

Sam looks like he has a big headache and we see flashes of what he is seeing. He sees a car swerving to miss another. He sees a huge rock hit the ground, pushed by someone above the ridge. He then comes back to reality, shook up.

DEAN
What happened? Another vision?

SAM
Yea. I saw a car, it (beat) it swerved to miss another car. Then a boulder or something, falling from a cliff. It (beat) it was pushed.

DEAN
What do ya think it means?

SAM
I dunno. Maybe there's something in the area. Maybe we should drive around a bit and check things out around here.

DEAN
I don't think so, Sam. We got that case in Richmond to get to.

SAM
Yea, but that's not as big as this could be, Dean. I mean, something powerful enough to shove a rock into oncoming traffic? We gotta look into this.

DEAN
Alright, alright. If we find anything weird down the road, we'll look into it.




ROADWAY - DAYTIME
Cops and investigators swarm around the scene of the accident. The car is on its side now, with no bodies left inside. An officer directs traffic around the accident site. Police tapes surrounds the area.

Sam and Dean arrive.

SAM
Enough proof for ya?

DEAN
Grab the badges.

Sam
Good idea.

Sam reached for the glove compartment and pulls out two fake police badges. He hands one to his brother and put the other in his pocket.

SAM
Who are we this time?

Dean
How about (beat) agents Mulder and Scully. FBI.

SAM
And you don't think they'll recognize those names, Dean?

DEAN
Not out here. They probably don't even have TVs.


Sam and Dean exit their car and approach the police chief and begin asking questions.

DEAN
Who's in charge here?

POLICE CHIEF
I am. Police Chief Williams. And you two gentleman are?

DEAN
Agents Mulder and Scully from the FBI.

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
Oh really?

Sam looks away, embarrassed by Dean, who looks just as serious as before.

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
And why would this situation be of the FBI's concern?

Now Dean looks at a loss for words, while Sam steps up to save the situation.

SAM
Well... we have reason to believe that this car was stolen. We need to inspect the vehicle.

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
Oh, sure thing, follow me.

Dean looks at Sam, impressed. Sam looks back, proud of his save. They are both escorted to the crushed car by the chief.

DEAN
So how did this happen?

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
No one is really quite sure. It's a very quiet road, not a lot of traffic, even during the day.
Sam and Dean inspect the car while the chief continues to talk.

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
As far as we can tell, it was just a freak accident. Some kids were out here joyriding and a boulder fell from the cliff side right onto the road. They probably didn't see it in time and slammed right into it. The beer cans in the back seat probably didn't help the situation, either.

SAM
Interesting.

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
Luckily, this is the first time in years that we had any fallen rocks in this area, it's pretty rare.

DEAN
What else is down this road? Any bars? Places for kids to hang out?

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
Nothing down this road for a good 10 miles or so. I can't imagine what they were even doing out here.

SAM
Did anyone see anything?

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
One man did, but he's not exactly what we call a reliable source. You can talk to him if you really want.I can give ya his address.

DEAN
That'd be great.

The police Chief gets out a pen and paper and writes an address on it. He hands it to Dean.

POLICE CHIEF WILLIAMS
Claims he saw a UFO last night around this area, but he's also reported a sighting of big foot once at the Gorilla cage at the zoo.

DEAN
Sounds like just the kind of guy we wanna talk to.




EXT - WITNESS' HOUSE - LATER THAT DAY
Sam and Dean walk up the sidewalk of a small, old house in suburban North Carolina. There is garbage all over the porch and the lawn clearly hasn't been cut it weeks. They knock on the old wooden screen door. A small old man answers.

WITNESS
Who the hell are you two?

DEAN
We're with the FBI, sir, we have some questions.

WITNESS
What kind of questions? I told you already, I paid those taxes year ago!

SAM
No, it's nothing like that. We want to ask you about a UFO you reported last night.

WITNESS
I already told the town cops all I know.

DEAN
Please, if you don't mind, we would like to hear the story for ourselves.

WITNESS
Alright fine, come in.

The man opens the door and lets the brothers into the house.



INT HOUSE
The house is full of old junk and beer bottles. There are countless news articles and paper clippings about UFOs and alien sightings all around the place. The man takes Sam and Dean to the kitchen and all three sit at the table. In here, Sam notices some stones and water on the counter top near the sink, but thinks nothing of it.

SAM
So what did the UFO look like, exactly?

WITNESS
It looked just like an angel.

DEAN
Like, a religious thing? A statue of an angel?

WITNESS
Oh, there was nothing holy about this thing. It was about eight feet tall and dark black. Could barely see it up on the mountain until it took flight.

SAM
On the mountain?

WITNESS
Yes. It was above Pine road, on a cliff looking down. Just waiting there. Like it new something was coming.

Sam and Dean look at each other, realizing they may have a lead.

DEAN
Is there anything else out there on that road? Any places for people to hang out?

WITNESS
Well, no bars or anything, but some of the kids like to hang around the old cemetery.
Sam and Dean realize where they have to go.




EXT car - DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD
Sam and Dean are inside, talking about the case.

DEAN
So what kind of angel would be flying around a cliff side, killing people?

SAM
Not a good one, I can tell you that.

DEAN
Maybe Bobby knows more about this thing.

SAM
He never said anything about evil flying angels.

DEAN
No, but he does seem to know everything we don't.

SAM
Good point.

DEAN
We'll call 'em when we get back to the room.




INT - HOTEL ROOM
Sam looks online for more information about the angel while Dean paces through the room, talking to bobby on the phone. We cut back and forth between the hotel and Bobby's house.

DEAN
So what the hell is this thing, Bobby?

BOBBY
It could be a number of things, Dean. Poltergeist, witch, could just be a regular old demon.

DEAN
Well, how do we get it to show up again? Any spell that can pull in (beat) evil flying things?

BOBBY
Sorry, but I can't really help ya unless you get me more info.

DEAN
All we know is that apparently it pushed a rock off a cliff and killed some kids driving by a few nights ago. We were on our way to Richmond and Sam got a feeling something big was out this way and.....

BOBBY
Oh, crap. You're not in Carolina are ya?

DEAN
Yea. why?

BOBBY
Damn! I know exactly what it is. You're fighting the black angel. It's a cursed angel statue from a cemetery out there. Not sure which one, but the locals probably all have a Halloween story to tell ya about it if ya ask them.

DEAN
So what do we do when we find it?

BOBBY
I dunno, I'll have to look into it more. Just be careful, will ya? That thing is dangerous. Lots of hunters have gone after it and never came back.

DEAN
Sounds like our kinda challenge.

BOBBY
Good luck.

Dean finishes his conversation with Bobby and walks over to Sam on his laptop.

DEAN
Find anything?

SAM
Yea. Apparently, this lady, her husband and son were killed by a drunk driver. She had them buried in the Oakland cemetery just outside of town.

DEAN
Let me guess. Down the road from the accident?

SAM
Yep. She was overly protective of her family, too. She even requested that, when she dies, she be buried next to her husband and son and the cemetery be closed, not letting anyone else be buried there.

DEAN
And they really did it for her?

SAM
That's the thing. They ignored her, just blew her off. BUT, every time they tried to bury someone else in the cemetery, something went wrong. The ground was frozen, the gravediggers were scared off, always something.

DEAN
So she's protecting the whole place.

SAM
And she doesn't like visitors.

DEAN
Well, too bad for her, cos she has two more coming tomorrow.




PINE ROAD - THE NEXT DAY

DEAN
Damn this place is hidden. Sensing anything, Sammy?

SAM
Nothing yet.

DEAN
How can we even be sure that you've got a lead here? I mean, your psychic stuff never really led us to a demon or anything.

SAM
I'm sure of it, Dean. Didn't you see that wreck back there? That couldn't have been a coincidence.

DEAN
I hope you're right about this and we're not just wasting our time. We could be hunting real stuff right now if...

SAM
Wait! Here!

DEAN
Here? Where?

SAM
Slow down! There's something in this area. I can feel it!

Dean pulls over to a clearing on the side of the road. No one is around and there are no side roads to be seen.

DEAN
Sammy, there's nothing out here, the cop was right, this place is completely empty.

SAM
In the woods.

DEAN
In the... Sam, no! I'm not driving my baby into the forest to get scratched up and dented for a hunch you MIGHT have.

SAM
Fine, we'll walk then.

Sam gets out of the car and starts walking.

DEAN
Alright, fine.

Dean gets out and follows Sam into the woods, but first...

DEAN
(to the car)
Be safe, baby.

Sam rolls his eyes and keeps walking. Dean follows.




IN THE WOODS - MINUTES LATER
Sam and Dean are still walking. Nothing out of the ordinary is seen.

DEAN
Feeling anything else?

SAM
Not yet.... Wait. Over here!

Sam and Dean walk a little further, through some bushes and find an old abandon cemetery deep in the woods. The stones are covered in moss and the area is covered in trees. The brothers spot a fire pit with some beer cans and cigarettes littered around it.

SAM
Looks like somebody's been here recently.

Dean goes to pick up a can of beer from the ground.

DEAN
Yea... and they didn't even finish their beer.

Dean drinks the rest of the half full can and tosses it to the side. Sam looks on, disgusted.

DEAN
What? Can't let a good drink go to waste.

Sam and Dean continue into the cemetery and find many old grave monuments, one of which is a black angel statue. The head for it and inspect.

DEAN
Well what do ya know. A pitch black angel statue. How quaint.

SAM
So what do you suppose we do with it?

DEAN
Eh, it looks pretty harmless, to tell ya the truth.

SAM
Yea, that's because it doesn't kill anyone during the day.

Sam and Dean walk around the statue, inspecting it, trying to figure out what is so evil about this thing. They notice that the thumb on the right hand is missing, clearly being broken off, but think nothing of it.

DEAN
No cryptic lettering or anything.

SAM
Yea, no spells on the stone around it either.

DEAN
(beat)
Wanna hit it with holy water?

SAM
Really, Dean? A statue in a cemetery? It's probably already been blessed.

DEAN
Damn, you're right.

(beat)
How about a sledgehammer?
Sam looks over at Dean, confused.

SAM
Ya never know.

Sam rolls his eyes.




CEMETERY - MOMENTS LATER
Sam and Dean are trying various spells and sayings to summon any demons out of the statue. Sam pours something on the statue, but it does nothing. Dean says a few words in Latin and throws water on the statue. Nothing is working.

DEAN
Damn! There's gotta be something that'll work.

SAM
Maybe you're right. Maybe this isn't the one.

DEAN
Well, you're the psychic, you tell me.

SAM
I can only tell that it's in the area, but I can't be sure that this is it.

DEAN
Well, look around for another angel statue. I'll call Bobby.

Sam walks around the cemetery searching for another statue. Meanwhile, Dean calls Bobby for advice.

BOBBY
Hello?

DEAN
Bobby. It's Dean. We found the statue... we think. Can't figure out what to do with it tho.

BOBBY
Well, sorry to say, but I found more info on this thing and you can't kill it until it comes to life again.

DEAN
Damn. Well, when is that gonna be?

BOBBY
Well, it depends. Sometimes it's every night, sometimes once a week. Sometimes it comes to life just to kill some kids that are pissin' it off and then it won't bother anyone for years.

DEAN
So we just gotta piss it off.

BOBBY
Pretty much.

DEAN
I think we can handle that.

BOBBY
It's gotta be at night though, remember.

DEAN
Of course, as challenging as possible.

Sam returns and Dean finished his conversation.

SAM
Nothing else out here.

DEAN
Well, Bobby says we gotta get her angry, but only at night. SO we'll come back later.
Sam and Dean leave the woods to return to the city.




INT LOCAL CHURCH - DAYTIME
The church is dimly lit and empty, except for Sam, Dean and the pastor. All three men sit in the pews and discuss the black angel statue in the church's cemetery.

PRIEST
I've been telling people for years that the statue is cursed. It is! Once they put it there, no one else could be buried in the area. The soul of that crazy woman is still inside it!

DEAN
How do you know it's her?

PRIEST
I knew her before she died. She was insane then and her soul is even worse now. Her son and husband are buried there. When they died, she left society, never wanted to deal with people ever again. Just went up there at sat at the grave. Even back then, she would scare people off who just wanted to visit their own deceased family members. She kills almost everyone who goes out there!

SAM
So people who visit the cemetery keep dying? How do you know it's because of the statue?

PRIEST
Because. It always shows a sign. A few years back, a guy went out there and broke off the thumb of the angel. He was just asking for trouble. A few days later, he was found dead at his house, with one single thumb print on his throat. The next day, the thumb was back at the feet of the angel out in the cemetery.

Sam and Dean look at each other, figuring out what the deal was with the thumb earlier in the graveyard.

DEAN
So did anyone ever try to stop this thing?

PRIEST
Yes, of course. One of our own priests in fact. Father Robinson went out there one night, ready for an exorcism. Had incense, holy water, the whole deal.

DEAN
But it didn't work.

PRIEST
Oh no. There's no stopping this thing. No one knows exactly what happened that night, but he was found dead at the foot of the statue the next morning.

SAM
Anything else you can tell us about the black angel.

PRIEST
Yes. Do not try to stop it. Just let it go. We've learned to live with it here, that's why they made the road so far away from the graveyard.
The priest can tell that Sam and Dean aren't listening too closely, so he leans in and gets more serious.

PRIEST
If you value your lives, you will not go out there again!

DEAN
Oh don't worry, father. We have no intention of going back.

PRIEST
Good.

Sam and Dean get up to leave, but the priest stops them for one more comment.

PRIEST
Oh, one more thing.
Sam and Dean look back.

PRIEST
The Lord doesn't like liars.

The priest walks away. Sam and Dean look slightly offended, but they brush it off and continue out of the church. The brothers head for their car and return to the cemetery later that evening.




CEMETERY - LATE AT NIGHT
The brothers have returned to the cemetery, ready with a plan to get rid of the demon from within the statue. Dean draws a pagan circle around a nearby grave. After a little more preparation, Sam and Dean are ready for the battle.

SAM
Looks pretty good.

DEAN
(to the statue)
Well, tonight's the night. Ready to go back to hell? (beat) No? Aw well that's too bad, cos you don't really have a choice now do ya?

SAM
Is that all the stuff we need?

DEAN
Yep.

SAM
How about the cross?

DEAN
Right. In the car.

Sam and Dean go back to the car to get the cross.

SAM
Look, Dean, would ya mind if I take the lead this time?

DEAN
Nah, I got this one.

SAM
Dean, you know I can do this. Don't you trust me?

DEAN
I Trust you as my right hand man.

SAM
What if something happens, man. What if..

DEAN
No "What if's", Sammy. Nothing gonna happen.

SAM
Well if you're so sure, why do need to be such a control freak about this.

DEAN
Enough of this crap, we'll talk about this later!

SAM
Dean, you gotta....

DEAN
Enough, Sammy!

Dean walks off towards the woods. Sam is annoyed, but follows.
Sam and Dean return to the graveyard.

SAM
Uh... Dean?

DEAN
Yea?

SAM
The statue's gone.

Dean looks up and sees the empty pedestal.

DEAN
Son of a bitch!

Sam and Dean look around frantically near the grave site.

DEAN
Alright, if I were a possessed, two ton angel statue, where would I be?

SAM
It probably went into the woods.

DEAN
Right. Let's split up. You look over there, I'll look over here.

Sam and Dean split up and search for the black angel. Quietly, Dean walks through the woods, but does not find anything. Sam searches as well. For a moment, he thinks he sees something, but it turns out to be nothing. Dean hears a sound overheard and spots the angel flying by. He notices that it has Sam in it's sights and is ready to swoop down and attack.

DEAN
Sam!

Dean runs towards Sam to warn him. Sam notices nothing, but then hears the noise coming in from behind.

DEAN
Sammy!

Dean catches up to the angel and knocks Sam to the ground just as the angel swoops down. She instead, slams right into Dean, knocking him unconscious.

SAM
Dean? Dean!

Sam gets up and tries to revive Dean, but to no avail.




INT HOSPITAL - DAYTIME
Sam waits for Dean to get out of the emergency room after an overnight stay. Dean and the doctor come out of a room and he is released from the hospital.

DOCTOR
It's nothing too major, just a bad bump to the head. A few stitches and some ice is all he needed.

SAM
Good. Thanks, doc.

Sam and Dean leave the hospital and talk about the events of the past night.

SAM
Dean, what the hell? You could have been killed!

DEAN
Excuse me?! I thought a 'your welcome' was in order!

SAM
Look, I know you were trying to protect me, but don't do it if you end up in worse danger!

DEAN
That thing was gonna kill you, Sammy!

SAM
Oh and it wasn't gonna kill you?

DEAN
I knew what I was doin', alright?

SAM
No. You didn't, Dean. That's the thing! You gotta stop trying to be the hero all the time, alright? I know you feel like you need to watch out for me all the time, but you don't! I'm not a kid!

DEAN
Oh really?

SAM
No! I'm not a kid, Dean! I can handle myself.

DEAN
Yea, well ya didn't do too good a job last night, partner.

SAM
Alright, I admit it, you are a better hunter than I am. But thats the thing! If you die, I can't continue this!

DEAN
You would quit if I died?!?

SAM
I'd have to, Dean! You know why? Because you run the show everytime we hunt something! I don't know half the stuff you do about these things! I'm just playing follow the leader half the damn time!

DEAN
Where are you goin' with this?

SAM
You gotta watch out for yourself, Dean. The demons, they know. They know I'm your weakness.

DEAN
Bull. I don't have any weakness.

SAM
You gotta deal with this, Dean.

DEAN
No, we gotta go back to the hotel and re plan this thing for tonight.

Sam sees that Dean is falling back into the leader role again, but realizes that there is no getting through to his brother right now. He backs off and deals with it for now.

SAM
Alright (beat) fine. Let's plan it.

Sam and Dean get into the car and drive off.



INT CAR - MOMENTS LATER

DEAN
So, what's our plan, genius?

Sam doesn't reply.

DEAN
Sam? You still mad?

SAM
Huh? Oh. No, it's just...

DEAN
What?

SAM
That old guy we talked to. The one that saw the angel fly over the road that night.

DEAN
Yea, what about him?

SAM
I remember seeing some rocks and water on a shelf at his house.

DEAN
And?

SAM
I didn't think of it at the time, but those could have been brimstones and holy water. I mean, what kinda regular guy would have stuff like that, unless...

DEAN
You don't think he's a...

CUT TO : INT WITNESS' HOUSE - DAYTIME
Sam and Dean have returned to the house of the witness they spoke to earlier.

WITNESS
Well, hell, if I knew you boys were hunters before I would have helped you out right away.

DEAN
Always good to meet a fellow demon killer.

WITNESS
By the way, nice touch with the FBI cover. I used to claim CIA when I used to work a case.

Sam and Dean laugh a bit, but quickly get down to business.

SAM
Now, we have an idea. We figure the demon is in the black part of the statue, so we want to try and burn it off.

WITNESS
And what if you're wrong?

DEAN
Well, hopefully we're not.

WITNESS
You gotta be prepared, boys. If that doesn't work, you'll wish you melted the whole statue down.

SAM
But there's no way we could melt it down completely.(beat) Is there?

WITNESS
Follow me.

The brothers follow the old man into the basement where he shows them a can of ketchup.

DEAN
Ketchup? I don't think this bitch is hungry for human food, man.

The old man opens the can, revealing a clear liquid inside.

WITNESS
Pure sulfuric acid. One spark near this stuff and the whole can goes up instantly. Over 4000 degrees.

Sam and Dean looked stunned.

WITNESS
Used to put some drops in bullet shells when I hunted poltergeist back in the 70s. No real use for it now that I'm retired from hunting.

DEAN
So how much do we need?

WITNESS
I got 8 can. You can have all of them.

The old man hands a can to Sam and a can to Dean.




EXT - WITNESS' HOUSE - MOMENTS LATER
We see Sam, Dean and the old man outside, loading their trunk with the acid.

WITNESS
Well good luck. If this thing is as bad as you say she is, you'll need as much luck as you can get.

SAM
Thanks.

Sam gets in the car and Dean says goodbye to the old man.

DEAN
Enjoy retirement, man.

WITNESS
Sure will. Ya know, your brother there's got a good eye. Anyone else would have seen those brimstones on the counter and thought nothing of it, but he found 'em. Ya got some good help there.

Dean thinks about what the man says about his brother and realizes it's true.

DEAN
Yea. Yea, I know.



INT - HOTEL ROOM - LATER THAT DAY
Sam and Dean return to the hotel. Sam is looking online for more information on the black angel while Dean looks through some old spell books.

DEAN
Find anything else online?

SAM
Yea, check this out.

Dean, impresses, goes to see what Sam found. We see pictures and text on the topic on the computer screen as Sam explains what he found.

SAM
Remember how the priest said others have fought this thing before? Well, I found some info from the few people to lived to tell about it.

DEAN
Nice.

SAM
This one guy tried silver bullets and holy oil but neither worked. Another group of hunters tried some 15th century voodoo spell but that failed too. One other team in 1956 tried to speak a cleansing spell at the foot of its grave and it weakened it for a moment, only for it to gain full power right before it would be destroyed.

DEAN
So if we do that spell and go the whole way....

SAM
That should take care of it.

DEAN
I dunno, Sammy. I think we should still try the fire.

SAM
Yea, we know that'll work, but will it get to 4000 degrees to melt the statue?

DEAN
The acid we got definitely will.

SAM
Then when we catch her on fire, we can read this spell and send her back.

DEAN
Sounds good.

The guys pack up their hunting gear and head out for the cemetery once again.




EXT CEMETERY - NIGHT
The brothers arrive at the cemetery after midnight and again prepare to attack the angel before it attacks them. As they enter the graveyard, they can see the statue has already come to life.

DEAN
Oh great. Looks like tonight is starting off just as good as last time.

SAM
Let's hope it ends better this time around.

Sam and Dean head deeper into the woods to another nearby clearing, where the angel swooped down the other night. They set up some canisters, attached to trip wires, in preparation for the battle. Sam places the last canister by a tree and walks over to Dean.

SAM
You sure this is going to work, Dean?

DEAN
It better. If not, we're gonna have an angry 2 ton flaming statue on our ass.
Sam opens a spell book and begins to read in Latin to summon the angel. Suddenly, a howl is heard coming from nearby, in the woods. The brothers look at each other, knowing who it must be.

DEAN
Let's do this!

Sam nods and both guys take off running in opposite directions. The sounds continue and find Sam running through the woods. Sam spots the angel and looks worried. He darts in another direction and the shadowy figure above the trees follow him. After a few more moments of Sam avoiding the angel, he reaches the clearing again. He runs for his life while the angel swoops down for the kill. Just in time, Sam throws himself to the ground and the angel flies over him, inches away from his body. The angel slams right into an almost invisible web of wires, which launch the canisters of acid right at her. Sam rolls out of the way to avoid being hit. Dean reappears, just off to the side in the woods, and begins shooting at the statue, igniting the canisters and creating a magnificent ball of fire.

SAM
YES!

The angel shrieks loudly, struggling to get out of the fiery web in which she is trapped. Sam and Dean walk within 10 feet or so of the statue to watch their nemesis go up in flames.

Dean begins reading from the spell book when suddenly, the angel gathers enough strength to tear through the cords and throw the fire and canisters directly at Sam and Dean. The flaming canisters launch past them and into the woods.

SAM
Damn that was close!

DEAN
Son of a bitch!!!!

SAM
What do we do now?

DEAN
Plan B.

SAM
Plan B?

Dean runs off towards the grave site.

DEAN
PLAN B!

Sam is confused at Dean's news of a Plan B, while Dean heads for the grave. He starts desecrating the grave, kicking the other headstones, shooting at the ground and pouring beer all over the area. He taunts the statue while looking outward to the woods for a reaction.

DEAN
How do ya like that, huh bitch?! Want some more?

Dean shoots more bullets into the ground.

DEAN
Thought you were here to protect your family! Where are ya know?

Suddenly, the shrieking noise returns and flies towards Dean. This time, it does not try to kill him. Rather, it lands nearby and begins to speak.

BLACK ANGEL
Ah. Dean Winchester. I've hear so much about you. Now I get to finish the work so many of my friends have failed at!

DEAN
I doubt that. None of your pissant friends ever finished the job. What makes you so special?

BLACK ANGEL
What makes me special? Why, my vessel, of course. All the others that came after you did so inside a human. I, on the other hand, chose an unbreakable statue as my way of getting around.

DEAN
And you think that's gonna stop me?

BLACK ANGEL
You should be on my side, Dean. I'm just here to protect my family.

DEAN
These people weren't your family. You're a demon.

BLACK ANGEL
I wasn't always a demon. I only became one when people began desecrating my family's grave! Do you know what it's like to lose family before their time? Do you have any idea how much it hurts?

DEAN
Yea, I do.

BLACK ANGEL
Then you know how much you would do for them, no matter what it meant. ANYTHING to get them back!

DEAN
They're not coming back, they're dead.

BLACK ANGEL
Not unless you have the power to bring them back, Dean. Someday, I hope to work with the other demons and resurrect my family once and for all! It's possible and it can work for your father!

Dean thinks about what the black angels is saying, as if he can sympathize with the demon. But he shakes it off.

DEAN
How do you know about my father?

BLACK ANGEL
We know everything about you, Dean. About how your father died trying to save you. About your desire to keep Sam safe so you don't lose the last bit of family you have left! Join us, Dean, we can fix everything.

DEAN
You shut the hell up right now.

BLACK ANGEL
Holding in the truth doesn't make it false, Dean. I'm here to defend my family.

DEAN
No. No! You're not defending your family. You're killing innocent people!

BLACK ANGEL
Are they innocent? Really?

DEAN
They're more innocent than you. You're far too stupid to even begin to remember what it's like to be human!

BLACK ANGEL
I have far sharper wit than any other demon you have ever faced, Dean Winchester!!!

DEAN
Oh really? Than how do you explain this?

Dean points to the ground, showing that he has lured the black angel into a pagan circle. The angel looks shocked.

DEAN
Oh, yea. I am much smarter than you think I am. Now I'll admit. I wasn't 100 percent sure this would work, but I thought I'd take a chance, and (beat) by the looks of things, it's going pretty well.

BLACK ANGEL
Well you can't do anything to me unless you have a .....

DEAN
One of these?

Dean holds up a spell book. Again the angel is shocked and angered. Dean begins reading from the book.

The angel starts to shriek once again, as the blackness begins to peel off the sides of the statue. It tries to fight back and and almost breaks through the circle. Dean looks worried, until he hears Sam's voice, reading the same spell from another book. The brothers read together.

The black angel, now on the ground, shrieks once more and all the black pieces fall from the bronze statue and launch into the air, never to be seen again. The Beautiful bronze statue falls over onto the ground and is lifeless once again.



EXT HOTEL - THE NEXT DAY
Sam and Dean are packing up their car, getting ready to hit the road again. Sam has a look of concern on his face and speaks to Dean.

SAM
Dean. I heard what the demon said to you last night. About protecting family and doing anything to get them back.

DEAN
Yea?

SAM
That stuff didn't get to ya, did it?

Dean thinks for a moment, but denies his feelings.

DEAN
No, of course not. Just another kill in the books.

SAM
Dean, seriously.

DEAN
Seriously what, Sammy? Huh?! That I would kill to have dad back? That I would kill to make sure you don't die? Huh?!

SAM
Dean, if anything happened to me, I don't want you turning into that!

DEAN
Not gonna happen, don't worry about it alright?!

SAM
How do you know? That lady probably thought the same thing and when she died, she turned into a demon herself! How do you know, for a fact, that it won't happen to you?

DEAN
Because it won't!! I won't let it! It won't happen to me and it won't happen to you! Nothing is gonna kill us, ok?!?! Especially you!

SAM
We have to be ready if something happens to one of us, Dean. C'mon!
Dean looks like he agrees but does not want to admit it.

SAM
Give me a chance to save myself, alright?

Dean is slightly struck by the wording. Seeing as the last time he took a chance was the night before in the graveyard and it clearly paid off, he is willing to give Sam a shot.

DEAN
Alright. Fine.

Dean is clearly thinking about what has happened in the past few days.  Once again, he tries to brush it off and go back to living his life.

DEAN
C'mon, we got another case to look into.

The brothers get into the car and drive off to the next case.
