The cure proved true. Dean got splashed in the face with holy water and instead of a sizzle we only got his usual disgruntled look. It is here that we truly see the gift Jensen Ackles has an actor. Human Dean? Much softer and more kind. His small smile unthreatening. His shoulders down, not prepared to spring.
Flashback to Sam sitting in a bar talking to Lester, Dean's latest victim. Lester explains that he wishes he could get revenge on his wife for cheating and kicking him out. Sam offers to show him how he can get his revenge by having him summon a Crossroads Demon. Sam hides behind the bushes when the demon appears, but isn't able to get her in time to stop Lester from making a deal. Even though he captures the demon, he still used Lester to get info on Dean and Crowley, and it cost Lester his life and his soul. Sam is shown torturing the demon for info, even cutting her up with a knife, but she claims that Dean and Crowley are off the radar.
Sam goes into Dean's room, looking around at his belongings. Then he finds a few old family pictures of him and Dean, their parents, and even with them and Bobby. He smiles happily at these pictures. When he walks back downstairs to the dungeon, he finds the chair where Dean was tied up to is now empty.
It's now a game of Cat and Mouse with Dean hunting for Sam in the halls of the bunker. He looks behind several doors, while Sam finds a set of keys and heads towards the main power room. Dean yells out to Sam, taunting him.
When Sam looks around a corner, there's nothing there. He turns back around and Dean swings the hammer at his head. Sam quickly ducks and holds Ruby's knife to Dean's throat, but doesn't do anything. Dean continues to egg him on to do it, but Sam takes the knife away from Dean's throat. Dean smiles, flashes his black eyes and advances on Sam when Castiel comes up behind him, grabs him around his arms and holds him still. Then his eyes flash blue as he uses his angel powers to hold Dean back. Dean growls and yells in defeat, Cass telling him "it's over".
Dean begins to stir awake. Sam and Cass ready themselves, Castiel holding up an angel blade, and Sam carrying the flask of holy water. Dean wakes up, his eyes still black. But as Sam and Castiel watch, the black from Dean's eyes begins to wash away and we see his bright green eyes. They stand there waiting for him to do something. Dean, acting a little out of it, calmly says, "You look worried, fellas." Sam splashes some holy water on him again, and nothing happens. They now know that he has been cured. Sam and Cass smile in relief, while Dean looks at them still a little confused, but still clearly having remembered everything that happened.
