    Summary

    Los Angeles, November, 2019
    "I know you came to find retiring skinjobs...distasteful, but there has never been anyone better at this job than you. Think about it. One last job, then you can do whatever the hell you want. Join Sam in Stanford. Go Offworld, start yourself a nice little family. Open that classic car shop you’ve been dreaming about, or even start a damn farm. This is your big break, boys. And if you won’t do it for the money, do it for old time’s sake. Do it for John’s sake. Come on. It’s the family business. You’ll be saving people by hunting these things.”
    Sam and Dean looked at each other. They both knew the decision had already been made for them.

    One last job: kill things that need killing.

    Not really so simple though, is it?

     

    Note: Major Character Death isn't any member of Team Free Will, just FYI.
