Crowley tells Lucifer that eventually his utter helplessness will wear him down and he'll call Crowley "master." The King of Hell says that his minions replicated the metal from the cage to create chains to bind Lucifer. As for capturing Lucifer, Crowley perverted Rowena's cell to send his essence back to Lucifer's discarded body where it was bound. Lucifer finally thanks him, pointing out that Crowley could have put him in the cage instead of imprisoning him in Hell.

Rowena gets out of a nearby car and says that Gavin looked just like her father. Sam introduces Gavin to her grandmother. They go to the museum and Gavin says that the other passengers were ordinary folk. One of them was a teacher, Mistress Alloway. He looks at the manifest and sees the locket, and explains that he bought it himself as a gift for his Fiona Duncan. The locket was added to the exhibit six months ago. Gavin tells them that Fiona insisted on coming to the New World with him. When he refused, Fiona smuggled herself aboard the ship and died when the Star went down. The brothers discover that the locket is gone from the exhibit.

She asks where he was, and Gavin says that he was sent somewhere else. Fiona explains that she hid on the Star, and the crew scorned and used her when they found her. The other passengers did nothing, and Alloway said that Fiona deserved it for throwing herself at Gavin. Furious, Fiona vows that other teachers will pay Alloway's debt.
Once Fiona disappears, Gavin tells the others what he learned. Sam says that there might be a way to ix everything by making sure Fiona isn't alone on the ship. Rowena objects but Dean points out that it's their only option. Gavin says that was thinking the same thing and can spare her the nightmare that Fiona is trapped in. Crowley appears and says that it will never happen, but Gavin says that he called him to say goodbye.

She finally tells her sons that she's been working with the British Men of Letters. Sam points out that they have a history with them, but Mary insists that they do good work and they can learn from them. Dean wonders where that leaves them, and Mary insists that it's the same as always: family. She asks her sons to hear her out.
Rowena is sipping coffee and sitting with Crowley. He says that what she did wasn't right, and figures that there's an evil reason why Rowena sent his son to his death.
