The Winchester brothers head out on a hunt that doesn’t turn out to be an easy case. Here’s everything that happened in Supernatural Season 15, Episode 5.
The Winchesters head out on a case that involves not-a-mountain-lion in Supernatural Season 15, Episode 5. The sheriff is sure that it’s a person and not an animal, which immediately makes the Winchester brothers’ ears pick up. A trip to speak to one of the only victims to survive, where Dean gets a description. He’s sure it’s a werewolf but is that really the case?
An easy werewolf case?

Sam is quick to point out that it wasn’t a full moon on the night some of the victims were attacked. As we, and Dean, know, that doesn’t matter. It could have been a purebred werewolf.
What’s even better is that the victim, Ashley, knew who the werewolves were. She’s able to lead the Winchesters to the two brothers. Of course, the were-brothers know they need to kill their victim.
Sam senses that something is off. The case is too easy. So, what is the catch?

Dean thinks about his job
While watching over Ashley, Dean talks to her about his job. Does he like hunting monsters? Despite all the bad, he admits that he does like it. This is where he’s supposed to be.
Ashley brings up the fact that she has no idea what she’s going to do with her life now that she’s graduated college. Wouldn’t it be great if it was all planned out and decided?
Dean knows how that feels. He doesn’t agree.
The case was initially easy, except the were-brothers take Ashley while Dean sleeps. These were-brothers aren’t exactly smart, taking Ashley back to their home. However, they are on their own ground, where they’re able to attack the Winchesters brothers.
A fight breaks out and one of the were-brothers gets Dean’s gun. He’s about to use it on Sammy but then he shoots his brother instead. This brother never wanted to kill humans, and he knew that killing his brother was the only way to stop things. After that, the were-brother turns the gun on himself and kills himself.
Is it over?
Not quite! Ashley tries to get away from everything and trips. She falls and lands on antlers that Dean had pulled off the wall during the fight.
Is Ashley dead? Well, yes and no. It’s not Ashley.
Yes, the white-eyed demon that Sam had killed, leading to Lucifer being released. Just how can she be back when she would have been sent to the Empty?
What Lilith wants
It turns out that God brought Lilith back, and now she wants The Equilizer. She does have to play by a few rules though. She knocks Sam out (poor Sammy again!) and has been told she isn’t allowed to kill them. Dean agrees to take her to get the gun to keep Sam safe.
Lilith doesn’t want to play by God’s rules, but she doesn’t have a choice. It’s not like she can hurt him. But she does point out that God still wants the world to end with one brother killing the other, the way all other worlds have ended.
Dean didn’t bring the gun, and Lilith is about to hurt Dean. However, Sam turns up and uses a devil’s trap bullet to the head to trap her. It doesn’t quite work, though. She only died because she let Sam kill her the first time and she’s able to force the bullet out of her head.
Lilith is able to get the Equalizer (it was in Baby all long) and melts it down to scrap metal. There’s no way of killing God now. With that, Lilith disappears.
The Winchesters deal with the reveal
To end the episode, the Winchesters deal with the fact that God is around after all. Rather than keep secrets, Dean admits that Lilith told him Chuck wants the brothers to kill each other.
Now Sam opens up about his dreams, sharing the link in each of the dreams. It’s clear that there’s a link between Sam and Chuck.
The God situation isn’t over, and that makes Dean angry and upset. Sam’s suggestion to fight God seems ridiculous. How are they supposed to do that? I guess that’s for the next 75% of the season.
This was certainly the strongest episode of the season so far, with a return that made a lot of sense and was a great surprise.
Odds and ends:
- The show continues with the food discussions. Dean doesn’t like ghost pepper jerky
- Sam has a vision of a world where he said yes to Lucifer. He later has a vision of where Deanmon attacks. All these visions have one thing in common. It’s brother against brother and one of them always dies.
- It doesn’t look like Sam knows why Castiel is gone.
- Lilith describes Chuck as a “low-rent Dean Koontz.”
