After checking in with Cas about what simply occurred, the brothers have been interrupted by Billie (Lisa Berry), who knowledgeable the gang that the alternate Winchesters have been working from Chuck (Rob Benedict), who’s been destroying his different worlds one after the other. Rapidly altering the topic, she went on to clarify that Jack consuming angel hearts was simply step one in her plan to defeat God. It was time to maneuver onto section two, which meant discovering a strong object referred to as the Occultem.

Because the brothers researched the Occultem, Dean continued to query Billie’s plan. Jack is meant to kill Chuck, which might then go away Amara (Emily Swallow) alive and the universe out of steadiness. To counteract that, Dean steered that Jack additionally kill Amara to unravel their potential dilemma. It really works in principle, I suppose, however there was no time to delve into that additional since they nonetheless had work to do.

It turns that dreaming time and again about previous regrets whereas eternally resting was pure torture. Cas instructed her he’d assist her, which prompted Ruby to whisper the placement in his ear. Earlier than Cas might go away, nonetheless, he was stopped by the Empty who deliberate to torture him since Billie by no means specified that Cas was vital to finish her plan. Thank heaven for Jack, who pulled Cas out of the Empty earlier than he might be tortured to demise. Again on the bunker, Cas was greeted by Dean, who referred to as him an fool for going by with this dangerous plan.
