Synopsis for "Chapter Two"
At the recommendation of Missouri Mosely, John and the kids leave Lawrence, Kansas and drive out to Tempe, Arizona to meet a man named Fletcher Grable. After awkward introductions are made, John shows Fletcher the fang that Missouri recovered in Kansas. Grable identifies it as belonging to a Black Shuck - an oversized breed of Hellhound. Black Shucks are known to occupy crypts and empty graveyards. He tells him that the last report he read about a Black Shuck sighting was a few months ago in Eureka, California. As John prepares to leave for Eureka, Fletcher gives him a blank journal. He encourages him to record everything he sees. Moments after John leaves, a mysterious stranger arrives at Grable's place asking about him.
After stocking up on ammunition, John takes the kids to a Motel 8 in Eureka. As John is readying the boys for bed, there is a knock at the door. It is John's brother-in-law Jacob. Jacob has followed them from Tempe and is increasingly concerned over the family's wellbeing. He doesn't understand what John has been doing, and he disapproves of his choice to drag his children all across the country with him. John doesn't reveal everything, but tells Jacob that he plans on scouting out a local cemetery. Jacob wants to keep an eye on him and elects to accompany him.
After leaving Sam and Dean in the care of the motel owner, the two men drive out to the cemetery. John sees a crypt bearing markings similar to those carved into the Black Shuck fang in his pocket. Jacob, unaware of what John has been hunting, enters the crypt. Before John can react, the Black Shuck leaps out and tears into Jacob. The animal then turns towards John, but a shot rings out and it falls to the ground dead. Holding a smoking double-barrel shotgun is another hunter. He doesn't introduce himself, but volunteers to help John out. John wants to help the dying Jacob, but the hunter tells him there is nothing they can do. Jacob dies minutes later. Reluctantly, John agrees with the stranger's recommendation to dispose of Jacob's body and the car. The man appears to know quite a bit about John Winchester and his family. He tells John that the creature he just killed is not the thing responsible for the death of his wife.
