They hear about another incident on the radio, but when they show up at the crime scene, no one is there. They walk into the warehouse and are suddenly in Dr. Sexy, M.D. When Sam asks the trickster for help, he tells them he’ll talk to them if they can survive the game for the next 24 hours.

Dean gets shot and Sam has to sew his bullet wound, which he does using dental floss. After Dean is okay, they are suddenly in a Japanese game show. Sam can’t answer the question because it’s in Japanese and then a ball hits him in the balls, repeatedly. Castiel shows up and is about to get them out when he disappears. Sam figures out that if they play along, they survive, so Dean hits the buzzer and magically can speak Japanese, though he doesn’t even seem to know what he’s saying.

They are then in a commercial for genital herpes.

After the commercial, they are in Supernatural, the sitcom. Castiel shows up again and tells them that the trickster has way more power than he should, and he might be someone else. The trickster then shows up again, and makes Castiel disappear, again, and tells the brothers that he wants them to play their roles for Lucifer and Michael. When Dean asks him whether he’s on the side of heaven or hell, he says neither and gets really offended when Dean says, “You’re somebody’s bitch.”

Then they are in CSI. Sam says to follow his lead and after making some very unfunny quips, Dean stabs the cop with a stake. While he’s dying, the trickster starts laughing, and then Sam comes up behind him and stabs him, finally getting them out of the game.

They go back to the motel, but then Sam disappears. Dean gets in the car to look for him, and Sam’s voice is in the radio. They realize they didn’t kill the trickster and they are in Knight Rider.

Dean calls the trickster and they trap him in holy fire. Dean tells him they figured out that he’s an angel, and he admits to being Gabriel.

Gabriel points out Sam and Dean’s similarities to Michael and Lucifer, explaining that’s why they’re the vessels.
