This episode opens with a teenage girl taking selfies. While flipping through the photos she notices a faceless man behind her in multiple shots. She goes to hide in the closet while calling 911 but is murdered before the cops can get to her.
Dean finds the selfie posted online and tells Sam that he’s going on the hunt. Sam’s confused as to why Dean would go on a case without him but Dean tells him he doesn’t know what Sam wants anymore. He catches Sam up on the case and they head off to investigate.
They talk to the victim’s mother about the incident who mentions cold spots. When Sam and Dean ask her what she means, she admits she’s talked to supernaturalists about the death of her daughter. Which can only mean one thing: the Ghostfacers are in town.
Sam and Dean find Ed and Harry in a diner. After finding out what they know about the case, and their monster in question, they tell them to go home. But do the Ghostfacers ever listen to the Winchesters? Of course not.
While perusing the Ghostfacers’ website, Sam finds a book written by the two The Skinny on Thinman. Included are pictures of the illusive creature, which bears a striking resemblance to the man in the dead girl’s selfies. They go to the sheriff to get the girl’s phone and are given the evidence by an officer named Norwood. They discover the selfie was posted two hours after the girl’s murder, leading them to thinking that they are dealing with something non-paranormal.
Back at the girl’s home, Ed and Harry are setting up video equipment and recording for their show. Ed wants to leave the case to the Winchesters but Harry wants to continue with the case to show their haters that they were right.
Later that night, Thinman murders the diner manager and the whole thing is caught on film.
The Winchesters show up to the crime scene and who do they find already there? The Ghostfacers. Ed and Harry have brought EMF equipment but it doesn’t go off once at the scene meaning that what they’re looking for is definitely not a ghost. They also discovered the video was posted on the web.
Harry and Ed are driving when Harry decides that he wants to go into the woods to find Thinman. Ed, however, just wants to leave the case and let Sam and Dean handle it. Harry isn’t ready to give up yet and gets Ed to drop him off at the woods while he heads to the Winchesters motel. He tells the guys that he invented Thinman with the help of photoshop so Harry wouldn’t leave Ghostfacers but he had no idea it would go viral. They tell Ed he has to tell Harry before he gets himself in trouble.
