Supernatural (2005–…): Season 8, Episode 1 - We Need to Talk About Kevin - full transcript

Dean returns from Purgatory, one year after the fight with the Leviathans. After reuniting with Sam, they find out that Kevin escaped Crowley with another Word of God that may hold the key to closing the gates of Hell forever.

I think Dad wants us
to pick up where he left off.

Saving people, hunting things,
the family business.

There are things much older
than souls in Purgatory.


Dick is coming.

If you wanna win, then you gotta be
the shark, and a shark's gotta eat.


- When it's your time...


What are you?
He's a prophet of the Lord.

That's the Word of God?

It's about Leviathan.

Does it say how to kill them?

When we freaks die, where do we go?

Like the backside of your worst
nightmare, all blood and bone and darkness.


Cut off the head
and the body will flounder.

Prophet's mine.
You are well and truly on your own.

We're in Purgatory?

Cass, I think we better...
Cass? Cass?

Will, get up. Something just happened.

- Go. Go do something.
- What are we supposed to...?



It was a deer.

I don't know.
It was like a deer or something. Oh!

- Where am I?
- What?

Hey, hey, hey.

- Where's the road?
- Twelve miles that way.

This better be you, you son of a bitch.

All right.


Hold on, you bastard.

Hold on.


Oh, that was fast.

No thanks to you.

- What the hell took you so long?
- Un.

You're welcome.

- Everything working?
- Good enough.


...what now?

Like we talked about, I guess.

Then this is goodbye.

Keep your nose clean, Benny.
You hear me?

We made it, brother. I can't believe it.

You and me both.

Hey, buddy.

Dean. What...? I'm not a demon.

Or a Leviathan. What...?

Or a shifter. Good.

- My turn. Come on, let's go.
- I don't need to. I know it's you.

Damn it, Sammy.

- Come on.
- No, Dean. Can I just say hello?

All right.

Heh. Well...

...let's do this.

I don't know whether to give you a hug
or take a shower.

Heh-heh. Come here.

Dude, you're freaking alive.

I mean, what the hell happened?

I guess standing too close to exploding Dick
sends your ass straight to Purgatory.

You were in Purgatory?

For the whole year?

Yeah, time flies
when you're running for your life.

How did you get out?

Whoever built that box
didn't want me in there any more than I did.

- What does that mean?
- I'm here, okay?

What about Cass? Was he there?

Yeah, Cass didn't make it.

What exactly does that mean?

Something happened to him down there.

Things got pretty hairy towards the end
and he just let go.

So Cass is dead? You saw him die?

I saw enough.

- So then what, you're not sure?
- I said I saw enough, Sam.


Dean, I'm sorry.

Me too.

So you...
I can't believe you're actually here.

You know that, uh, half your numbers
are out of service.

Felt like I was leaving messages
in the wind.

Yeah, I didn't read your messages.

How come?

- Probably because I ditched the phones.
- Because?

I guess, um... I guess something
happened to me this year too.

I don't hunt anymore.

Yeah, and Sasha Grey has gone legit.

- What?
- Nothing.

- Um, she did a Soderbergh movie.
- What?

- She did a Soderbergh...
- No, you, Sam. You quit?

Yeah, yeah. You were gone, Dean.
Cass was gone, Bobby was dead.

I mean, Crowley even shipped off...

...Kevin and Meg to parts unknown.
- So you turned tail on the family business.

Nothing says family
like the whole family being dead.

I wasrt dead.

In fact, I was knee-deep
in God's armpit killing monsters...

...which I thought is what we actually do.

Yes, Dean. And as far as I knew,
what we do is the thing...

...that got every single member
of my family killed.

I had no one. No one. And for the first time
in my life, I was completely alone.

And honestly,
I didn't exactly have a roadmap.

So, yeah, I fixed up the Impala
and I just drove.

After you looked for me.

Did you look for me, Sam?

Good. That's good. No, we... We always
told each other not to look for each other.

That's smart. Good for you.

Of course, we always ignored that...

...because of our deep, abiding love for
each other, but not this time. Right, Sammy?

- I'm still the same guy, Dean.
- Well, bully for you. I'm not.

Welcome back.

You want some dinner?

I'll pass.



Sam Winchester, it's Kevin Tran.

Crowley had me in this warehouse
and I just escaped. I don't know where I am.

I don't know if he or any other demons
are still after me.

I need your help. Call me back.
It's Kevin Tran.

When was that?

Sam Winchester. It's Kevin Tran.

I called you a week ago. Call me, please.

I don't know what the hell
I'm doing out here, man.


I get it.

So, what,
you wanna strategize or something?

Sam, it's Kevin. I'm good.

- Whoo! I'm so good.
- Is he drunk?

Three months since you ditched my ass.

Havert slept
for more than four hours a night...

... but it's all good in the 'hood. Mm.

Uh, if you're still alive, eat me.

Eat me.

Sam, it's been six months.

I can only assume you're dead.

If not, don't try to reach me,
you won't be able to.

I won't be calling this number anymore.

He was our responsibility.

And you couldn't answer
the damn phone.

Hey. Listen to this. Kevirs last message.
Listen to the background. Ahem.

If not, don't try to reach me,
you won't be able to.

- I won't be calling this number anymore.
- Hear that?

- What is it?
- I think he was on a bus.

Listen again.

Last stop. Centreville.


- Centreville where?
- Michigan.

Why would Kevin be
in Centreville, Michigan?

Because his high school girlfriend
goes to college there.

- That's thin.
- It's the best lead we got.


You were right.

He was our responsibility,
so let's find him, okay?


Well, no visible signs of douchery,
I'll give you that.

Smell like dog to you?

In the car?

You tell me.


- Come on, I got you.
No way.

Dude, you're dead.
No way, I'm not dead at all.


Take a breath. Calm down.

- Where's the angel?
- You're him.

- The human.
- Where's the angel?

I don't know.

- You okay?
- Yeah.

Yeah. What you say
we blow this joint, hit the road?

- Now?
- Yeah. Kevirs not getting any more found.

The kid survived a year without us,
he'll be okay for another 12 hours.

- Besides, whers the last time you slept?
- Hm.

- What?
- Nothing.

Is that how you rationalized
taking a year off?

- People will be okay.
- People were okay, Dean. You're okay.

Wow. Heh.

Look, I did what we promised we'd do.
I moved on. I lived my life.

Yeah. I'm getting that.

Look, it wasrt like I was just oblivious.
I mean, I read the paper every day.

I saw the weird stories,
the kind of stuff we used to chase.

- And you said what? "Not my problem"?
- Yes.

- And you know what? The world went on.
- People died.

People will always die, Dean.

Or maybe another hunter took care of it.
I don't know.

The point is, for the first time I realized
that it wasrt only up to me to stop it.


So, what was it? Hm?

What could possibly make you stop
just like that?

A girl?

Was there a girl?

- The girl had nothing to do with it.
- There was a girl.

Yeah, there was.

And then there wasrt.

Any more questions?

Listen, I know
this is gonna sound crazy to you.

I don't even necessarily need you
to understand, but you need to know.

I didn't just drop out, Dean.
I found something.

Something I've never had all my life.

Yeah. What was her name?


So, what, you dropped your peanut butter
in her chocolate? How did it happen?

I hit a dog.

- I knew I smelled dog.
- I knew you'd throw a bitch fit.

Hey, the rules are simple, Sam.

Don't take ajoint from a guy named Don,
and no dogs in the car.

- What about you?
- What about me?

Look at you. You've still got that look.
You're shaky, you're on edge.

What was it like?

You wouldn't believe me if I told you.

Try me.

It was bloody.


Thirty-one flavors
of bottom-dwelling nasties.

Hell, most days felt like
360-degree combat.

But there was something
about being there.

It felt pure.


No thanks for saving your hide?

Sure. I won't shove this up your ass.

Mm. Awful strange way
to punch your meal ticket, friend.

- I got something you need.
- Yeah? What's that?

A way out.

Even a dental apocalypse like you
knows there's no such thing.

There is if you're human.

God has made it so,
at least that's the rumor.

- Bull.
- Suit yourself.

Maybe you've gone native.

Maybe you like being man-meat
for every Tom, Dick and Harry.

- Prove it.
- No. Heh.

You're either in or you're out.

So you just wanna guide me
out of Purgatory...

...out of the goodness of your undead heart.
- More or less.

- What's in it for you?
- I'm hopping a ride.

- What?
- It's a human portal, jackass.

Only humans can pass through.

I show you the door,
you hump my soul to the other side.

- So you're looking for a soul train.
- Sure, if that's what you're into.

How do I know this isn't a setup?

How do I know I ain't gonna end up
like your friend over there?

He was my friend. Now you are.

First rule of Purgatory, kid.

- You can't trust nobody.
- You just asked me to trust you.

You see? You're getting it now.

- First we find the angel.
- Mm, three's a crowd, chief.

Buddy, either you're in or you're out.

The last time I saw Kevin
was like a year ago.

When he disappeared?
- Mm-hm. He stole his mother's car...

...because he thought
he was on a mission from God.

- He was crazy.
Shut up.

My friend Adam got addicted to Adderall
but got a perfs on his SATs...

...same thing.
Shut up.

- Serious. Mission from God.

- Look, Channing, we know Kevin was here.
- No, he wasrt.

We understand if you're trying to protect him,
but nobody can protect him better than we can.

- I hate Kevin. I wouldn't protect him.
- I thought you two had a thing.

Heh. Yeah, when he was going to Princeton.

Wow. Just like that.

- Yeah.

Why would Kevin come sniffing
around here if not to see her?

No idea. Maybe we should split up,
ask around. See if anybody has seen him.

Yeah, Asian kid, yay high, at a university.

That should be easy.

Okay, are you ready
to forget all about what's-his-name?

Okay, this guy's name is Kyle, he's Jewish.
Um, I'm pretty sure he has an Asian thing.

Perfs, right?

Shut up, bitch.


The prophet has not yet
shown his face to me.

But you should know,
Dean Winchester is back.

- Help. I need help. The dog needs help.
- That way.

He just came out of nowhere
in front of my car.

- We need a doctor. You a doctor?
- The doctor is coming.

- But I'm not sure...
- You're not sure what?

This is an animal hospital.
You save animals.

- Sir...
- Save this animal!

Roberta, escort this gentleman out, please.

- Yes.
- I did this.

Come on.

Don't judge me, I got bubkes.


Here you go.
- Ah, thank you.

Sweet mother of God.

It's for me? Seriously?

Check this out.
I went through campus security archives...

...around the time Kevin should have
been here. Anyone look familiar?

- Mm-mm-mm.
- Dude, it's a burger.

It's treasure.

Kevin comes all the way to campus
and doesn't see his girlfriend?

I went to the computer lab,
found the computer he was on.

- And?
- And I found the website he was visiting.

Found his username, hacked the website,
found when else this username logged in...

...then I reverse-tracked the IP address
back to the original user, Kevin...

...who is apparently been using the same
wireless router for the past two months.

That is spectacular work.

- Any chance I can get that in English?
- Yeah. I think he's in Iowa, at a coffee shop.

A church? Sure this is right?

Barista at the coffee shop swears he's seen
Kevin ducking in here the past few months.


It's Sam and Dean Winchester. Open up.

No! Stop! Stop!

- Not Leviathans. It's us.
- What the hell happened to you guys?

Cliff Notes?
I went to Purgatory, Sam hit a dog.

For real?

You want some towels?

- Who taught you all this?
- I guess God.

- God taught you how to trap demons.
- Technically, yeah.

Wait, wait. Hold on.
Crowley kidnapped you, I saw that.

But then you left a message
saying you escaped. How?


First he took me to a warehouse.

Look at you. Haircut, manicure, pedicure.

- Like a new penny.
- Will there be torture now?

Torture? Heavens, no. No.
Quite the opposite, my young prince.

Sky's the limit for you and I.

There was a tablet there, like the last one.

Here we go.

Now remember,
feel like a winner, be a winner.

Okay? Interpret.

Wait, there's another tablet?
So another Word of God.

- Yes.
- How many Words of God are there?

I just became a prophet like a year ago.

- Well, did this tablet have a name?
- Demons.

- What about demons?
- As far as I could tell, everything.

- What are we looking at?
- It's all just fragments, bits and pieces.

- This is hard.
- Throw me a bone here, Kev.



I'm sorry.
Is it just me or is it hot in here?

Is it? Our mistake.

Turn it up.

Okay, I see something.

Hell gates.

Talk to me.

- What about hell gates?
- There's one in Wisconsin.

The tablet told me how to open it.

There were ingredients for a spell.

Right away.

- Mr. Crowley would like you to proceed.
- Where is Mr. Crowley?

Where do you think, dumbass?


You showed the king of hell
how to open a hell gate?

So that all the demons in hell
could come out all at the same time?

What? No.




I told Crowley I was opening a hell gate,
but I was reading from another chapter.

How to destroy demons.

You son of a bitch.

Wait, Kevin.

Where's the tablet now?

- Safe.
- Safe where?

Hey, as long as it's safe, okay?

Were you able to read anything else
off the tablet before you stashed it?

Only the stuff about
closing the gates of hell. Forever.

- Come again?
- Banish all demons off the face of the earth.

Lock them away forever.
That could be important, right?

Closing the gates of hell forever?

Yeah. Yeah, that could be important.

Okay, if this kid is right,
he's sitting on a bombshell.

Hell, he is the bombshell.



There's no way
that Kevirs getting out of this intact.

Well, I think he's doing pretty well
for himself so far.

Yeah, he got out.

And now he's in it,
whether he likes it or not.

So free will, that's only for you?

I can't believe what I'm hearing.

Sam, we have an opportunity
to wipe the slate clean.

We take Kevin to the tablet, he tells us
the spell, we send every demon back to hell...


Every single bastard
that destroyed our lives...

...killed our mother, killed Jess.

And you're not sure?

Kevin, I, uh...

I owe you an apology.


Look, when you disappeared and Dean
disappeared, I needed to clear my head...

...and I'm thinking maybe
you were one of the pieces...

...that I should have been there
to pick up.

You've been a hunter
since you were a kid, right?

Yeah, mostly. Yeah.

You know,
ever since I realized I was a prophet...'s just hard to believe
this is actually my life.

Yeah. It sucks right now. I know that.


It might suck for a lot longer,
but trust me on this, it gets better.

You know I'm not gay, right?

If we can do this, get the tablet...

...get you everything you need to close
the gates of hell, there's a world out there...

...where nobody, not Crowley,
no demon, is chasing you anymore.

I guess I just don't see
how I get from here to there.

I used to not be able to see it either...

...but there is a way.

Just give me five minutes.

He sustained some serious
internal bleeding.

There's two leg fractures
I can see now.

But with some TLC,
he should pull through for you.

Thanks, doctor.

You're gonna take the dog?

- Look, I would, he's not mine.
- He's not anybody's.

- I spend a lot of time on the road.
- Don't you think you're responsible?

Why do you think I brought him here?

Roberta, could you hand this man
his trophy on his way out, please?

Maybe if you were such an upstanding guy
you wouldn't have hit him in the first place.

Fine. I'll take him.

There's my hero.

We got company.


- What the hell is that?
- It's Purgatory.

Dean Winchester. Back from Purgatory.

Spanky the Demon.
Yeah, I heard about you.

You're the one
who uses too much teeth, right?


Hello, boys.

Dean. You're looking...

Well, let's just say
Purgatory didn't do you any favors.

- Where's your angel?
- Ask your mother.

There's that grade-school zip.
Missed it, I really did.

Moose. Still with the pork chops.
I admire that.

- Let Channing go.
- That's not Channing, Kevin, not anymore.

What an awful thing to say to the boy.
Of course it's Channing. Kev...

...last time we danced,
you stole my tablet and killed my men.

Tell you what,
come with me now, bygones.

And I'll let the girl go back
to What's-The-Point U.

He's lying.

You won't get Channing back.
She's probably dead already.

Will you please stop saying that?

Let the girl speak.

- Kevin?
- Channing?

- What's going on?
- There's a demon in you...

...and you're going to your safety school.
- What?

- But it's gonna be okay.
- I just... I cant...

No, no. Wait.

Okay. I'll do it.

- Kevin.
- Myself for the girl.

But this ends, all right?
No fighting, no nothing. It ends.

Can't let you do that, buddy.

Or what, you'll kill me?

I'll grab my stuff.

- Chin up, gentlemen. I'm a professional.
- This ain't over by a long shot, Crowley.

Really, Dean, who writes your stuff,
a marshmallow?

Come on, Kevin. Chop, chop.


Really, boys?



- Aah!
- Sam, Dean, run!

Find another meat suit.


Wrong number.

Automated jackass.
All right, anybody want anything?

I'm good.


How you holding up?


The king of hell just snapped
my girlfriend's neck. How about you?

All right, listen to me.
I'm sorry about your girlfriend. I am.

But the sooner you get this, the better.
You're in it now, like it or not.

That means you do what you gotta do.
I'm hitting the head.

There he is.
- How did you get a phone?

Would you believe they sell these things
in convenience stores now?

A lot's changed in 50 years.

- Must be a hell of a lot to take in.
- Mostly it's the choices, you know?

So many choices.

Yeah, I hear that.

Listen, Benny,
not to beat a dead horse...

...what we did down there is what we had
to do. Now, I don't regret it for a second.

But, you know, maybe until we both adjust,
it's best we don't talk for a while.

There it is.

One day at a time,
just like we talked about.

- I think you had it right, bud.
- What's that?

Purgatory was pure.

I'm kind of wishing I had appreciated it more,
you know? Like you.

You got an emergency,
you call me, you understand?

I hear you.

You keep your nose clean too, brother.
