Dean says that he dreams of the people he couldn't say, and Jack says that he saw many other people on Apocalypse World die despite his efforts. Jack figures that he wasn't strong enough, and Dean tells him that no matter how bad it was, Jack came through because he's strong.

Mary asks Sam how they'll stop Lucifer if they find him. Sam talks to Maggie and asks if she's okay. He asks her if she remembers anything about the person who killed her. Maggie wonders what difference it makes, and Sam tells her that it matters to him. The woman says that she didn't see her killer's face but she saw his eyes.
Jack and Lucifer look up at the night sky and agree that it's magnificent.
Dean and Castiel come up with nothing, and Castiel says that the angels aren't talking. The bunker lights flicker, and something stars pounding on the door. Dean and Sam tell Maggie, Mary, and Bobby to get out through the door while they buy them some time. Michael finally smashes through the door, and the Winchesters open fire on him.

Lucifer says that he's not the bad guy, and Sam tells the others that Maggie saw Lucifer's glowing red eyes. Jack demands the truth and he enchants Lucifer to tell the truth, and Lucifer says that Maggie saw him when he was scouting the bunker so he crushed her skull.
Jack tells Lucifer that he's a monster, and Lucifer unleashes an unholy scream on them. Jack ignores it, and Lucifer says that humans don't matter. Jack tells him that he's also a human, and Lucifer tells him that Jack is too much like his mother. He wonders if Jack will handle him, and says that they could have been better gods than God. He cuts Jack's throat and takes his grace, then heals the wound. Sam runs to the stunned Jack, and is teleported away with Jack as Lucifer takes them away. Michael says that the devil won.
Sam finds himself lying on a floor in a church. Lucifer lets Jack drop to the floor and kicks Sam in the face.
Michael tells Dean and Castiel that Lucifer is super-charged and will kill Jack and Sam, and could end the universe if he wants. Michael says that he's too weak to defeat Lucifer again, and it's the end of everything. Dean asks Michael if he could defeat Lucifer if he has his sword.
Lucifer chokes Sam, and Jack gets to his feet and tells Lucifer to stop. He appeals to Lucifer as his father, and Lucifer beats him and then knocks Sam down when he tries to fight. Lucifer says that Jack has killed lots of people, and Sam says that he doesn't care because Jack is family. Disgusted, Lucifer says that his father left him and his brothers tried to kill him. He says that Jack will kill Sam and drops an angel blade on the floor.

Lucifer gets the upper hand, and Sam grabs the blade and tosses it to Dean/Michael. Dean/Michael stabs Lucifer and falls back, screaming, as Lucifer's life force leaves his body.
