Summary: Still shaky from the events of 1x12 "Faith," Sam and Dean take one too many cases in quick succession and find themselves stranded, with Dean injured and Sam struggling to stand his ground against the insanities of grief, exhaustion, and what seems increasingly like the intractable oblivion of hunting. When a hunter turns up dead at their motel--because of course one does--they find themselves at an uncomfortable crossroads: Just trying to survive the job itself is probably going to kill them before their monster can.

They'll need each other more than ever, but need is a complicated thing; and Sam and Dean are either the best thing for each other or the very worst. It's time to find out which.
