SOMEWHERE: Sam and Dean pull up to what appears to be
an abandon cabin. They go into the trunk and take out
guns. They go into the cabin and down to the basement.
Once down they find a cabinet with a brother and sister
inside. Sam asks "Is it still here?" The two
children nod their heads, yes. Sam then takes the children
upstairs while Dean searches around. A monster then attacks
Dean from behind and knocks his gun out of his hands.
It falls into a stream of water. Dean drives and gets
the gun and shoots the monster. The gun is actually a
taser, so the electricity traveled through the water and
ended up shocking Dean. Sam comes down to aid Dean.

blind man, The Healer, comes up to the podium and starts
to talk about everyday life and "The Lord."

it. He then calls up Dean to the front where he was
to be healed. Dean at first is a little hesitant but
Sam tells him to get up there. Once up there Dean explains
that he isn't a believer but Roy has no doubt that he
tells everyone to pray and then he puts he hand on Dean.
Dean then falls to his feet and Sam runs up to him.
Dean half awake now looks up and sees a "spirit"
hovering over the Healer.
Dean is being check out by a doctor who says that there
aren't any signs of his heart failing. She also mentions

out the Healer, Roy. In the meantime, Sam goes to check
out how the heart attack victim died.

why Roy chose him. Roy answers by saying that he saw
Dean as a man with a job and purpose that wasn't finished.
Sam talks to someone present when the young man had
the heart attack. Apparently, the guy ran around as
if he was being chased by something invisible before
he died. As he is leaving Sam notices a busted clock
on the wall that stopped at 4:17, the same time the
man died and Dean was healed.
