New York's North Brother Island holds a past that the world has forgotten, secrets long dead and atrocities buried deep; but for those who suffered, there is no forgetting. Rumored to be haunted, six college kids challenge her decayed remains, only to vanish without a trace. An acquaintance from their past calls the Winchesters to investigate, pushing the brothers into a world where death is merely a stumbling block and the past is just a gateway to a future with the promise of revenge. Still reeling from his time in Hell, Dean's own secrets plot to put him at odds with reality, leaving Sam to wonder if his brother is finally losing his mind.
An eight year old story of violence and blood shed resurfaces with clues enough to attract the attention of the Winchesters. However, in route to investigate, when illness sidelines the younger brother and a new victim is discovered, the trail becomes warm. Unable to wait, Dean is forced to begin the hunt alone, a path both brothers had agreed they would avoid at all costs. During routine questioning, Dean unwittingly draws the attention of the killer and soon, the price becomes too high as he is lured into a trap, one that will leave him fighting for his life, and that of the latest victim. The last child.
Then, in a race against time, the Winchesters embark on separate journeys: Dean to save the last child from a brutal ending; and Sam, to save Dean from becoming the next play thing at the hands of a monster neither of them is prepared for.
