Supernatural (2005–…): Season 1, Episode 16 - Supernatural - full transcript

While looking into a mysterious murder in Illinois, Sam and Dean come across Meg, an old 'friend' of Sam's, who may be far worse than they ever thought possible and who plans to use the brothers as bait to trap their father, John.

NARRATOR: Previously on Supernatural: -Dad.
This is bigger than you think. They're everywhere.
He wants us to pick up where he left off. Saving people.
Hunting things. The family business.
I don't understand the blind faith you have in the man.
You're a selfish bastard, you know that? You just do whatever you want.
Hey, I'm taking off. I will leave your ass, you hear me?
SAM: That's what l want you to do. -l'm Meg.
Sam. So where you headed?
No way l'm telling you.
-Why not? -You could be some kind of freak.
It makes no sense. Hell, I could've taken them both.
Why let them go?
-Great. FEMALE VOlCE: Meredith.
FEMALE VOlCE: Meredith.
WOMAN'S VOICE [ON lNTERCOM]: System disarmed.
System armed.
WOMAN'S VOICE [ON MACHlNE]: Hey, Meredith, it's Kristen.
You have to tell me what happened last night. Call me.
MAN'S VOlCE [ON MACHINE]: Hey, Meredith. It's Derrick. Where you been?
I've been trying to get ahold of you. I got somebody who wants to meet.
The only way to find out who... by calling me back. lf you wanna solve that mystery, call me.
All right? bye.
WOMAN'S VOICE [ON MACHlNE]: Hey, Meredith.
Listen, don't say I don't got your back.
I know that guy ripped your heart out last time, but this one....
All right, Dean.
-This is the place. -l gotta say...
...Dad and me did just fine without these stupid costumes.
I feel like a high school drama dork.
What was that play that you did? That-- What was it? Our Town.
Yeah. You were good. It was cute.
You wanna pull this off, or not?
I'm saying these outfits cost hard-earned money, okay?
-Whose? -Ours. You think credit-card fraud's easy?
Thanks for letting us look around.
Well, police said they were done with the place, so....
You guys said you're with the alarm company?
That's right.
Well, no offense, but your alarm's about as useful as boobs on a man.
Well, that's why we're here.
See what went wrong, stop it from happening again.
-Now, ma'am, you found the body? -Yeah.
SAM: Right after it happened. -No.
Few days later. Meredith's work called, she hadn't showed up.
WOMAN: I knocked on her door.
That's when I noticed the smell.
Any windows open? Any sign of break-in?
No, windows were locked. Door was bolted.
Chain was on the door. We had to cut it.
-And the alarm was still on? -Like I said...
-...bang-up job your company's doing. -Mm-hm.
You see any overturned furniture? Broken glass? Struggle?
Everything was in perfect condition.
Except Meredith.
-And what condition was Meredith in? -Meredith was all over.
In pieces.
WOMAN: The guy who killed her must have been a wack job.
But, I'll tell you, if I didn't know any better, l'd have said a wild animal did it.
Ma'am, you mind if we take some time, give this place a once-over?
Go right ahead. Knock yourself out.
So the killer walks in and out of the apartment.
-No weapons, no prints. -l'm telling you...
...the minute I found that article, I knew this was our kind of gig.
I think I agree with you.
You say you talked to the cops?
Uh, yeah. Spoke to Amy, a charming, perky officer of the law.
-Yeah? What did you find out? -Well, she's a Sagittarius.
She loves tequila. l mean....
-Oh, and she's got this tattoo, right-- -Dean.
What? Yeah. Nothing we don't already know.
Except for one thing they're keeping out of the papers.
-Hm? -Meredith's heart was missing.
-Her heart? -Yeah, her heart.
So, what do you think did it?
The landlady said it looked like an animal attack. Maybe it was.
-Werewolf? -Not a werewolf.
The lunar cycle's not right.
Plus, if it was a creature, it would've left some kind of trace.
It's probably a spirit.
See if you can find any masking tape around.
Ever see that symbol before?
DEAN: Never.
Me neither.
Really? You were a gymnast for five years?
-Well.... -Well....
WOMAN: Help here at the bar. -Awesome.
-Talked to the bartender. -You get anything?
-Besides her number. -Dude.
I'm a professional. I'm offended that you would think that.
All right.
You mind doing a little bit of thinking with your upstairs brain, Dean?
Huh? There's nothing. Meredith worked here. She waited tables.
Everyone here is her friend. They say she's normal.
She didn't do or say anything weird before she died. So....
What about that symbol? Anything?
Nothing. It wasn't in Dad's journal or any of the usual books.
So l'll just have to dig a little deeper, I guess.
-There was a victim before Meredith? -Right, yeah. His name was....
His name was Ben Swardstrom.
He was mutilated. Same deal, the door was locked, the alarm was on.
-ls there any connection between them? -Nothing l can tell. l mean, not yet.
Ben was a banker, Meredith was a waitress.
They never met, never knew anyone in common. From different worlds.
So the only successful intel we've scored so far is the bartender's phone number.
-Meg. -Sam.
Sam, is that you? Oh, my gosh.
-What are you doing here? -l'm just in town visiting friends.
-Where are they? -Well, they're not here right now.
But what about you, Meg? You were going to California.
I did. l came, I saw, l conquered.
Oh, and I met what's-his-name, something Michael Murray, at a bar.
-Who? -lt doesn't matter.
Anyway, the whole scene got old. So l'm living here for a while.
-You're from Chicago? -No. Massachusetts.
Andover. Gosh, Sam, what are the odds we'd run into each other?
Yeah, l know. l thought I'd never see you again.
Well, l'm glad you were wrong.
Dude. Cover your mouth.
Yeah, l'm sorry, Meg. This is.... This is my brother, Dean.
-This is Dean? -Yeah.
-So you've heard of me? -Oh, yeah.
I've heard of you. Nice, the way you treat your brother like luggage.
-Sorry? -Let him do what he wants to do.
Stop dragging him over God's green earth.
Meg. lt's all right.
Okay. Awkward.
I'm gonna get a drink now.
Sam, l'm sorry.
It's just the way you told me he treats you....
-lf it were me, l'd kill him. -lt's all right. He means well.
-We should hook up while you're in town. -Yeah.
-Show you a hell of a time. -That's great. Why don't you--
Why don't you give me your number.
-You know, l never got your last name. -Masters.
-Masters? -So you better call.
Scout's honor.
I hope to see you around, Sam.
-Who the hell was she? -l don't really know.
I only met her once.
Meeting up with her again....
I don't know, man, it's weird.
Well, what was she saying? I treat you like luggage?
What, were you bitching about me to a chick?
I'm sorry. It was when we had that fight...
...when I was in that bus stop in Indiana. lt's not important.
Any truth to it? Am l keeping you against your will?
No, of course not. Now, would you listen?
-There's something strange going on. -Tell me about it.
-She wasn't that into me. -No, man.
I mean our kind of strange. Maybe even a lead.
-Why do you say that? -l met Meg weeks ago...
...on the side of the road. Now l run into her in some Chicago bar?
The bar where a waitress was slaughtered by something supernatural.
-Think that's weird? -Coincidence. It happens.
Well, yeah, it happens. But not to us.
I could be wrong, but there's something about her...
-...that l can't quite put my finger on. -l bet you'd like to.
Maybe she's not a suspect. You got a thing for her, huh?
Maybe you're thinking a little too much with the upstairs brain. Huh?
Do me a favor. Check if there's really a Meg Masters...
...from Andover. See if you can dig anything up...
-...on that symbol on Meredith's floor. -What are you gonna do?
-l'm gonna watch Meg. -You are.
-l wanna see what's what. Better safe. -You little pervert.
-Dude. -l'm going, l'm going.
-Hey. -You're lurking outside her apartment?
-Yes. -Funny way of showing your affection.
-You find anything on her or what? -She checks out.
There's a Masters in the phone book. I pulled up her high school photo.
Why don't you go knock on her door...
...and invite her to a poetry reading or whatever it is you do?
-What about the symbol? Any luck? DEAN [ON PHONE]: I did have some luck.
It's.... Turns out it's Zoroastrian.
Very, very old school, like 2000 years before Christ.
It's a sigil for a Daeva.
-What's a Daeva? -Translates to "demon of darkness."
Zoroastrian demons. And they're savage, animalistic.
You know, nasty attitudes. Kind of like demonic pit bulls.
-How'd you figure that out? -Give me credit.
-l can chase paper too. -Oh, yeah?
Name the last book you read.
I called Caleb, he told me, all right?
-Yeah. -Here's the thing, Daevas...
...they have to be summoned, conjured.
-So someone's controlling it? -Yeah, that's what l'm saying.
From what l gather, it's pretty risky too.
They tend to bite the hand that feeds them.
-And the arms and torsos. -So, what do they look like?
Nobody's seen them for a couple of millennia.
Summoning a demon that ancient, someone really knows their stuff.
I think we got a major player in town.
Why don't you give that girl a private strip-o-gram.
-Bite me. -Bite her.
Don't leave teeth marks. Just enough to where-- Sam? You--
-No, no. I'm-- l'm just-- -Pervert.
I don't think you should come.
Because the brothers, they're in town. l didn't know that--
Yes, sir.
MEG: Yes. l'll be here...
...waiting for you.
What the hell?
[IN UNlSON] Dude, I gotta talk to you.
So hot little Meg is summoning the Daeva?
Looks like she was using that black altar to control the thing.
So Sammy's got a thing for the bad girl?
What's the deal with that bowl?
She talked into it, the way witches used to scry into crystal balls or entrails.
She was communicating.
-With the Daeva? -No. You said those things were savages.
No, this was someone different.
Someone who's giving her orders. Someone...
...who's coming to that warehouse.
Holy crap.
-What? -What I was gonna tell you earlier.
I pulled a favor with my friend Amy over at the police department.
The complete records of the two victims. We missed something the first time.
The first victim, the old man, he spent his whole life in Chicago...
...but he wasn't born here. Look where he was born.
-Lawrence, Kansas. -Mm-hm.
And Meredith, the second victim?
Turns out she was adopted. Guess where she's from.
-Holy crap. -Yeah.
It is where the demon killed Mom.
It's where everything started. You think Meg's tied up with the demon?
-lt's a definite possibility. -What's the significance of Lawrence?
-And how do these Daeva things fit in? -Beats me.
I say we trash that black altar, grab Meg and have an interrogation.
No. We can't. We shouldn't tip her off.
We gotta stake out that warehouse. We gotta see who...
-...or what is showing up to meet her. -l'll tell you one thing...
...l don't think we should do this alone.
We think we got a serious lead on the thing that killed Mom.
So.... This warehouse, it's 1435 West Erie.
Dad, if you get this, get to Chicago as soon as you can.
-Voice mail? -Yeah.
Jeez. What'd you get?
I ransacked that trunk. Holy water, every weapon that I could think of.
Exorcism rituals from about a half-dozen religions.
I'm not sure what to expect, so l guess we should just expect everything, huh?
-Big night. -Yeah.
No. No. Are you?
No. No way.
Could you imagine if we actually found that damn thing? That demon?
-Let's not get ahead of ourselves. -l know. l'm just saying...
...what if we did?
What if this whole thing was over tonight?
Man, l'd sleep for a month.
Go back to school.
Just be a person again.
-You wanna go back to school? -Yeah, once we're done hunting it.
-ls there something wrong with that? -No. No.
It's great. Good for you.
I mean....
-What are you gonna do when it's over? -lt's never gonna be over.
There's gonna be others. There's gonna be something to hunt.
There's gotta be something you want for yourself.
Yeah, l don't want you to leave the second this thing's over, Sam.
Dude, what's your problem?
Why do you think I drag you everywhere? Huh?
Why do you think l came...
-...and got you at Stanford? -Because Dad was in trouble.
-You wanted to find what killed Mom. -Yes, that, but it's more than that, man.
You and me and Dad.
I mean, l want us to be together again.
I want us to be a family again.
Dean, we are a family.
I'd do anything for you.
But things will never be the way they were before.
Could be.
I don't want them to be.
I'm not gonna live this life forever.
Dean, when this is all over...'re gonna have to let me go my own way.
MEG: Guys.
Hiding's a little bit childish, don't you think?
Well, that didn't work out like l'd planned.
Why don't you come out.
...l have to say, this puts a real crimp in our relationship.
Yeah, tell me about it.
-So where's your little Daeva friend? -Around.
-The shotgun's not gonna do much good. DEAN: Well, don't worry, sweetheart.
Shotgun's not for the demon.
So who is it, Meg?
Who's coming? Who are you waiting for?
Hey, Sam?
Don't take this the wrong way, but your girlfriend... a bitch.
SAM: This....
The whole thing was a trap.
Running into you at the bar.
SAM: Following you here...
...hearing what you had to say.
It was all a setup, wasn't it?
-That the victims were from Lawrence? MEG: Doesn't mean anything.
-lt was just to draw you in. -You killed those two people for nothing.
Baby, l've killed a lot more for a lot less.
DEAN: You trapped us.
Good for you.
It's Miller time. Why don't you kill us already?
Not very quick on the uptake, are we?
This trap isn't for you.
It's a trap for Dad.
Well, sweetheart, you're dumber than you look.
Because even if Dad was in town, which he is not...
...he wouldn't walk into this. He's too good.
He is pretty good, I'll give you that.
But you see...
-...he has one weakness. -What's that?
He lets his guard down around his boys.
Lets his emotions cloud his judgments.
I happen to know he is in town.
And he'll come and try to save you.
And then the Daevas will kill everybody...
...nice and slow and messy.
DEAN: Well, l got news for you.
It's gonna take a lot more than some shadow to kill him.
MEG: Oh, the Daevas are in the room here. They're invisible.
Their shadows are the only part you can see.
SAM: Why you doing this, Meg?
What kind of deal you got worked out here, huh?
-And with who? -l'm doing this...
...for the same reasons you do what you do.
Like the love you have for Mommy.
-And Jess. -Go to hell.
Baby, l'm already there.
Come on, Sam.
There's no need to be nasty.
I think we both know... you really feel about me.
You know...
...l saw you watching me...
...changing in my apartment.
It turned you on, didn't it?
-Get a room, you two. -l didn't mind.
I liked that you were watching me.
Come on, Sammy.
You and I can still have a little dirty fun.
You wanna have fun? Go ahead then.
I'm a little tied up right now.
Now, were you just trying to distract me while your brother cuts free?
It was because I have a knife of my own.
-Aah! -Sam. Get the altar.
MEG: No. No.
So l guess the Daevas didn't like being bossed around.
I guess not.
-Hey, Sam? -Hm?
Next time you wanna get laid...
...find a girl that's not so buckets of crazy, huh?
Why didn't you just leave that stuff in the car?
I said it before and I'll say it again: Better safe than sorry.
-Dad? -Hey, boys.
-Hi, Sam. -Hey, Dad.
Dad, it was a trap.
I didn't know. l'm sorry.
It's all right. I thought it might have been.
-Were you there? JOHN: Yeah.
I got there just in time to see the girl take the swan dive.
She was the bad guy, right?
[IN UNlSON]: Yes, sir. -Good.
Well, it doesn't surprise me. It's tried to stop me before.
-The demon has? JOHN: It knows l'm close.
It knows l'm gonna kill it.
JOHN: Not just exorcise it or send it back to hell.
Actually kill it.
I'm working on that.
Well, let us come with you. We'll help.
No, Sam.
Not yet. Listen, try to understand...
...this demon is a scary son of a bitch.
I don't want you in the crossfire. I don't want you hurt.
-Dad, you don't have to worry about us. JOHN: Of course I do.
I'm your father.
Listen, Sammy, last time we were together we had one hell of a fight.
Yes, sir.
It's good to see you again.
It's been a long time.
Too long.
Shut your eyes.
These things are shadow demons.
So let's light them up.
-Dad. SAM: Over here.
All right. Come on. We don't have much time.
Soon as the flare's out, they'll be back.
No, wait. Wait.
Sam, wait.
-Dad, you can't come with us. -What?
What are you talking about?
-You boys.... You're beat to hell. -We'll be all right.
Dean, we should stick together.
-We'll go after this demon together. -Sam, listen to me.
We almost got Dad killed in there.
Don't you understand? They're not gonna stop.
They're gonna try again. They're gonna use us to get to him.
I mean, Meg was right.
Dad's vulnerable when he's with us.
He's stronger without us around.
After everything.
After all the time we've spent looking for you.... Please.
-l gotta be a part of this fight. -Sammy, this fight is just starting.
And we are all gonna have a part to play.
For now, you gotta trust me, son.
Okay? You gotta let me go.
Be careful, boys.
Come on.
