Back at the motel, Dean has just checked out the Impala. "Now we know what he meant by 'fix everything,'" he says. "He broke into the trunk, stole an angel feather." Why would he think the Winchesters even have an angel feather? Did he find a love note from Castiel in the journal? Why do the Winchesters have an angel feather? Why do angels even have corporeal feathers in the first place? I'm never going to get through this recap. Moving on. Sam and Dean fret about Henry trying to change the past, even though they've learned at least twice now that that can't be done. Sam gets online to look up where Henry might have turned for the other ingredients he needs. He also gets a police report about a murder at the comic book shop. Dean heads off to find Henry while Sam is tasked with meeting Larry Ganem.
The story that Sam gives Larry is that Henry died. Sam says he found his journal and wanted to know what happened that night. Larry's wife pours them some tea and listens quietly. Larry doesn't see the point of talking about it. "They're gone... we're gone," he grumps. "But Abaddon is not," Sam says. "Abaddon was a hired gun," Larry says. If it turns out that Crowley hired her, it's going to be kind of a letdown. It doesn't seem like one of Lucifer's elite would work for the self-appointed King of Hell. The conversation eventually turns to the box that Abaddon is hunting. "In the box," Larry says, "is the key to every object, scroll, spell ever collected for a thousand years, under one roof." Just imagine how many episodes it would take to cover all the sitting around and reading that would ensue. Sam's mind reels at the possibility. "It is the supernatural mother lode," Larry says.
Dean catches up to Henry as he's in the middle of another spell. He tries to talk some sense into Henry, pointing out he might not even survive the trip back. They get into an argument about who misses John more. They're lucky a black hole of angst doesn't open up in the middle of the shop. "I'm going back to give him the life he deserves, not the one he was forced to live," Henry says. "And what if it's not meant to be?" Dean asks. Alas, previous generations of Winchesters are no more rational when it comes to family than the current one, so Henry is determined to go back. He plans to arrive an hour earlier in the past to stop Abaddon.
