(summary of first installment) When the dust settles, there’s still Dean, and there’s still Sam, and there’s a tired man in a well-worn coat, all staring blankly at each other.
They’re wondering what the hell to do next.
Heaven’s boarded up their windows, purgatory’s locked up for good, and hell’s gate has been slammed shut and sealed up tight. And yeah, there are still monsters, still ghosts, even demons still walking the earth, but when Dean sticks Ruby’s knife in their guts, they head back home and they stay put.
And life goes on.

Six weeks later, he’s still married to one of the strangest, most genuine and definitely most dangerously lov— likable guys he’s ever known.
