Summary - AU in Season 9 - Sam feels great after the trials - a little too great maybe, because he gets hurt on a routine hunt and doesn't realize it. When he has to leave the hospital because the doctors can't figure out why he's healing so quickly, he starts putting together all the little things that haven't made sense over the past few weeks and comes to the wrong conclusion.
