When he was going through his teen years, Sam often wondered why his parents never seemed to mind his slacking off, although they always pressured his kid brother Keith to excel.

When Satan pops in to explain that Sam is going to serve as his bounty hunter, tracking down escaped evil souls and returning them to hell, Sam’s first reaction is to tell Satan to go to, well, home, but it quickly dawns on him that breaking a deal with the devil is likely to have more serious consequences than getting grounded.
