After being tricked by a fake SOS message from Becky, Sam and Dean rush unknowingly to a Supernatural convention. When they arrive they notice a whole of Impalas parked at the scene, but continue on. Sam and Dean approach Chuck asking whats wrong. Chuck is confused by this and why Sam and Dean are even here. Dean tells him that they got a text from him telling them to come. Chuck realizes that it was in fact Becky who had texted the boys. Becky appears telling them she is so glad they came, and tells Chuck she "borrowed" his phone from his pants. Someone calls for Chuck and tells him its time. Sam and Dean follow Chuck inside only to find that this is a Supernatural Convention. Not only that but people dresses up as 'characters' from the books. Even Sam and Dean look a-likes (not really, but they are dressed up as the boys) walk by doing a scene from Hunted.
Then the panel takes place, and Chuck is a guest speaker. Before Chuck speaks, they read off the schedule for the day, leaving Sam and Dean in disbelief. Chuck then comes onto the stage. After downing a bottle of water, he asks for questions. The first person asks where Chuck got the idea for Sam and Dean. "They just came to me." is his answer. The next question comes from "The Man with the Hook", asking why Sam and Dean don't keep their weapons on a bungee cord to prevent them from being knocked away in a fight. Before Chuch can answer the question, the same cosplayer asks why Sam doesn't realize that Ruby is evil, saying that it is obvious that she is manipulating him. Becky gets angry at this and tells him if he doesn't like it, then don't read the books. Chuck stops any more arguements, and asks for another question. The next question is "What happens next?" Chuck then announces plans to begin publishing again. This is met with applause from the crowd, and a very displeased Sam and Dean.
After the question panel, Sam and Dean approach Chuck about the reboot in publishing. They ask him to stop, but Chuck replies that he needs to make a living, and the only thing he can do is write. They are about to continue when they hear a scream, and rush upstairs. Once there, they find out it was actually fake and a game at the convention for fans to do, all of them being "Sam" and "Dean" The brothers leave and head to the bar for a drink. The scene moves to one of the pairs investigating the fake haunting, the fake Sam heading off into an empty study, only to be attacked by a real ghost. Now spooked, he wants to leave and tells his partner to leave too. Sam and Dean overhear this, and begin their own investigation. They question the hotel manager, who tells them that the "fake haunting" is actually true, with four children having been butchered in the attic.
Sam and Dean then head to the attic, unaware that some cosplayers overheard their conversation and decided to do the same. The cosplayers encounter a ghost, who they believe is an actor. The ghost points them to a picture on the wall, where they discover bloody handprints and a map. Sam and Dean find the cosplayers looking over the map in the lobby. The cosplayers are annoyed that Sam and Dean tried to take their map. After talking it over, the two parties agree to work together, the cosplayers getting to be "Sam" and "Dean"
"Sam", "Dean", "Rufus"(Sam), and "Bobby"(Dean) head to the graveyard. The cosplayers begin to roleplay a scene from Asylum, upsetting Dean. After demanding to know why the would choose to be these "characters", the cosplayers reply that it's because they are fans, just like them. Dean replies that he is not a fan, and thinks that the entire story is a bunch of crap that would send most people to a nuthouse. After the cosplayers say that they don't think that Sam and Dean would care, Dean says that they do care, and walks off. Sam attempts to cover this up by saying that Dean is really passionate about the the story.
The group approaches the grave, the cosplayers looking for "clues" and Sam and Dean planning to burn the bones. The cosplayers looking on in shock, Sam and Dean dig up the grave. The ghost attacks, sending Sam flying. While Dean prepares to burn the bones, the ghost goes after the cosplayers. The bones are burned, the ghost dissipating, and the cosplayers in shock.
The cosplayers are at the bar, drinking. Sam and Dean come and pay their drinks, then attempt to leave, only to discover that all of the exits are sealed. After talking to the ghost of Letisha's son, they find out that Letisha only killed the three boys after discovering that they scalped her son. The three ghosts corner a cosplayer, who they then kill. Sam and Dean inform Chuck of this development, then usher the hotel staff into the main hall, and convnice the actress who was playing Letisha to help them. The two cosplayers from earlier approach them and say that they want to help. After a few minutes of talking, Dean agrees to let them help.
Then Dean and the girl head upstairs to distract the ghosts, while Sam and the look a-likes get out. The girl manages to get the ghosts attention, and the look a-likes make it out. Then the girl's phones goes off and the ghosts realize they have been tricked and are not too happy. Dean steps out from behind and tells the girl to run. Dean and the ghosts engage in a fight and they manage to pin Dean down. Luckly Sam comes to Dean's rescue. Meanwhile, the look a-like are digging up the boys graves and collection the bones together. Back to the hotel, Sam and Dean are still fighting the spirits, but are overwhelmed. The look a-likes luckily set the bones on fire in time and save Sam and Dean.
Now with the spirits gone, the convention is over. They bring out the body of the hook man guy. The look a-likes and Dean talk. The look a-likes tell Dean what they do in real life and that the story of Sam and Dean is something they could never experience. They also say the story is also cool because who wouldn't want a brother who would die for you? Dean asks the two where they meet and they reply online in a Supernatural chatroom. Dean replies it must be great making friends like that, but they respond that they are more than that; they are partners. Dean is shocked, and leaves. On the other side of the building, Becky is breaking up with Sam, so she can be with Chuck. Sam pretends to be heart broken for her sake. Then Becky reveals to Sam where the Colt really is. That it is in fact not with Lilith, but with her right hand man, Crowley. Sam asks Becky to tell him everything.
So with this new information, Sam tells Dean something good actually came out of this adventure. They now know where the Colt is.
