Previously, Sam discovered that Dean was not in fact dead but a demon and on the road with Crowley. On his way to find his brother, Sam was waylaid by Cole, a man who claimed Dean killed his father.
Meanwhile, Crowley offered Dean the chance to sate the Mark by killing for a demon deal, only Dean killed the client rather than the intended victim. Crowley was furious, but Dean broke up their partnership. In return, Crowley sold Dean out to Sam — in exchange for the First Blade.
After Sam’s escape, Cole tracked Sam and interrupted the brothers’ reunion, only for Dean to complete beat him. While Dean left him alive, Sam used the chance to spray Dean with holy water, handcuff him, and bring him back to the bunker.
