Anyway, the boys attempt to bluff their way through various denials until Darling Sammy, armed as he is with his Super-Exclusive Soulless Spidey-Sense, realizes Meg and her henchdemons are absolutely terrified of Crowley, and have likely been on the run from him and his minions for the last year. Just go with it, because if you don't just go with it, we could be here all night ranting about it. "I'm going with it!" I knew I could count on you, friend of friends. "Hee!" "So, you know what you gotta do now?" Sam leads, of course addressing the sassy demonette. "Let me guess," Meg replies. "You're gonna tell me?" "Work with us," Sam insists, much to Dean's vocal dismay. "We'll hand you Crowley with a bow," Sam promises, "on one condition: We go with you, and you help us wring a little something out of him before you hack him to bits." "What?" Meg asks, obviously intrigued. "Doesn't matter," Sam snaps back, playing his cards close to his remarkably broad and healthy chest. "Question is," he continues, "can you get us what we need?" "I apprenticed under Alastair in Hell," she reminds him, "just like your brother." "So," she practically laughs, turning her attention from Sam to Dean, taunting the latter with her question, "can I make Crowley do whatever I want?" Dean drops his eyes to the ground for a very long moment, because he's still guilt-ridden and tormented and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, then lifts them again to stare Meg down as he confirms, "Yeah, she can." "It's a deal, then!" Meg giggles. "Hugs and puppies all around!" she adds, a sparkly little sarcastic twinkle in her eye, and God help me, but I'm kind of hoping she makes it through this episode alive, as she's currently the most entertaining person I've seen on this show in weeks. With that, Meg and her minions make to exit, leaving the boys still lashed to their chairs, but one of her underlings delays things a bit by stopping to glower over each of the brothers until Dean's forced to mutter something we're meant to find amusing, and Meg practically has to drag the guy out by his ear.
Moments later, Sam and Dean amble out into the shack's main room, likely because Sam finally remembered that his Super-Exclusive Soulless Spidey-Sense comes with Magical Knot-Picking Action, and Dean screams about Demons! and Ellen! and Trust Issues! for a very long time until Sam quite awesomely shuts his brother's yapping flap up to lay it all on the line: They can't afford to be emotional at the moment because, like it or not, Meg and the minions represent their best option at the moment if they really want to rid themselves of Crowley for good. Yes, Sam concedes, Meg's likely to double-cross them the first chance she gets, which is why they've got to double-cross her first, and to that end, Sam intends to bring along a little "insurance."
