Supernatural – Season 1 – Episode 3 – Dead In the Water

Dean Winchester, Jensen Ackles, Supernatural

Supernatural – Season 1 – Episode 3 – Dead In the Water

Dean comes upon a story about people who have disappeared in a lake and the families have buried empty coffins for closure because the bodies were never found.  They think it could be a case so they head to Wisconsin.

Important Moments:

Sam and Dean go to visit the family of the most recent drowning, the Carlton’s, and the drowning victim’s brother tells them that his sister didn’t drown, but was dragged under. She was a varsity swimmer and the brother insists that there is no way she would have drowned.

Looking at old newspaper accounts of the lake drownings, the brothers find that the sheriff’s daughter, Andrea, has a son named Lucas who saw his father drown in the lake, making him the only eye-witness they know of regarding whatever is happening in the lake. They go to talk to Lucas and after Dean talks to him, Lucas gives Dean a drawing.

Will Carlton, the brother of the girl who drowned in the beginning of the episode, dies by drowning in the kitchen sink and the brothers realize that whatever is in the water can go through the pipes, which means it can get to anyone, anywhere.  They also realize most of the recent victims have a connection to Bill Carlton.  As the brothers are leaving the Carlton house, Dean realizes the front of the house matches the drawing that Lucas gave him. <!–more–>

“Losing him, it’s worse than dying” is said by Bill Carlton and then by another woman who had a son, Peter, who also disappeared.  Peter turns out to have been friends with Bill Carlton.

Bill Carlton is talking to the lake, saying he thinks he finally knows what “you want.” Sam and Dean think Peter might be trying to get revenge for something that Bill Carlton did.  They go to his house and find him out on a boat.  They try to get him to come back to shore, but his boat just goes flying into the air and Bill completely disappears.

The brothers leave town under threat of arrest from the sheriff, but Dean decides to turn around to make sure Lucas is okay.  During that time, Andrea decides to take a bath and the lake monster pulls her under. The brothers arrive at the house just in time to pull her out of the bathtub.

Sam and Dean find an old photo of a Boy Scout troop and both Bill Carlton and Sheriff Jake Barr are in the picture.  Lucas then looks outside as if something is there.  He goes out the door and Sam, Dean and Andrea follow him.  He stops at a spot in the grass.  Sam and Dean dig it up, figuring that’s where Peter is buried, but instead they find Peter’s bike.  Sheriff Jake Barr shows up and pulls a gun on them.  After an argument, he confesses that Peter was killed accidentally when they were playing (dangerously!) and pretending to drown Peter and accidentally held him under water for too long.

Lucas goes near the lake and is pulled in.  Sam and Dean jump in but can’t find him.  Jake walks into the lake, asking Peter to take him instead of Lucas.  Jake is then pulled under by the creepy dead boy, and then Dean finds Lucas, who is unconscious, but alive.

Best Moments:

In the last scene, Dean is talking to Lucas and he tells him that if he’s going to be talking again, there’s a very important phrase.  Dean asks Lucas to repeat it back to him and he says, “Zepplin rules!”

Dean’s Family Moments:

Dean and Sam get into it about the search for their father from their very first scene, where Sam is concerned they aren’t doing enough to find their father, and Dean gets mad at him for saying it, bringing up the time Sam had spent at college while Dean had been with their father.

After hearing what Dean said to Lucas about losing his mother as a child, Sam says Dean never told him that and they have a bonding moment.

Great Performance:

Jensen Ackles gives a great performance in the scenes where he talks to the little boy.  He basically has to carry relatively emotional scenes all on his own, and he does a great job with just vocal inflection and facial expressions.

Ghost Story of the Week:

A creature is pulling people underwater in a lake, drowning them.  The bodies are never found.

Super Creepy Moment:

 

 

 

 

Lucas goes to get a toy action figure out of the lake and a hand grabs him and pulls him under.  Jake Barr runs toward the lake with everyone else, and the dead boy, Peter, surfaces to look at Jake, who killed him.  Very creepy!

State of the Week:

Wisconsin

Notable Guest Stars:

Amy Acker, from Angel, Person of Interest, and The Gifted, appears as Andrea.

Notable Music Moments:

Movin’ On by Bad Company plays as Sam and Dean drive away.

Best Lines:

“We will find Dad, but until then, we’re gonna kill everything bad between here and there.” – Dean

“It must be hard, with your sense of direction, never being able to find your way to a decent pick up line.” – Andrea

“Oh God, we’re not going to have to hug or anything, are we?” – Dean

Supernatural – Season 4 – Episode 20

The Rapture

Important Moments:

Sam is starting to show signs of addiction to demon blood, and is also demonstrating a reliance on it when he fights, which doesn’t work out so well.

Near the end of the fight with the demons that kidnapped Jimmy’s family, Sam has a knife and a demon, and he drinks a little blood from the neck of the demon to be able to use his powers. However, when he looks up, Dean and Castiel and just looking at him. Talk about looks of disappointment. Also, mixed with a little WTF?

Jimmy is dying, and Castiel will be possessing Claire instead. Castiel tells him to take him back and let Claire go, to which Castiel agrees. As Castiel is leaving, Dean asks him what he was going to tell him, and Castiel says that he learned his lesson, that he serves heaven, not man, and certainly not Dean. Continue reading

Supernatural Rewatch Recap – Season 4 – Episode 6 – Yellow Fever

Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, SupernaturalSupernatural – Season 4 – Episode 6

Yellow Fever

Plot Summary:

The episode opens with a funny scene that shows Dean is far from over the psychological trauma of going to Hell.
Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
Sam and Dean are in Colorado to investigate the deaths of people that should have been perfectly healthy dropping dead of seemingly natural causes. They ask the coroner to do an autopsy of a man that died of a heart attack. However, when the doctor opens him up, he finds that the man’s heart doesn’t have any blockages and looks healthy.

They talk to the Sheriff about the death of Frank, the man with the heart attack, and find that Frank was frightened of something before he died.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Supernatural
As they are discussing the case, Dean shows his first sign of being jittery when he avoids teenagers that are just standing there, doing nothing. Then, when they are interviewing Mark Hutchence, Frank’s neighbor, Dean seems overly freaked out by the animals in the house, and not just the snake and spider, but also the frogs. Dean then freaks out when Sam opens the car door. As they are driving, even Dean realizes he’s acting weird, and then the EMF scanner goes off. Dean is causing it.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
Dean wakes up with the same marks on his arm as the other dead people. Sam talks to Bobby and they figured out that Dean has ghost sickness. They figure out that to stop the ghost sickness, they have to kill the ghost that started it.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
Dean starts having hallucinations and then coughs up a wood chip. The brothers go to an old abandoned lumber mill and find a wedding ring that turns out to belong to Frank, the dead guy from the first scene. Dean then finds a painting of Frank’s dead wife. When he picks it up, it turns on the saws, which freaks Dean out. Then Dean sees a man behind Sam. At the look on Dean’s face, Sam turns around. It is, unsurprisingly, a ghost. It comes after Sam, who shoots it. Dean, meanwhile, has already gone running from the lumber mill to the car, where he is downing bourbon.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Supernatural
The brothers go to the Sheriff’s station and get the file for Luther Garlands, the ID Sam found at the lumber mill and presumably the ghost. After they leave, the camera cuts to the sheriff, frantically rubbing at his wrist. He also has ghost sickness.

The brothers go to visit Garland’s brother, who is living in an institution. He tells the Winchesters that Frank killed Luther Garlands after his wife, Jessie, went missing. He also tells the brothers that he used to hate Frank, but he doesn’t anymore because he just did it out of fear, which “spreads and spreads.”

Dean realizes that the scratches he has are road rash. Dean is experiencing Luther’s death in slow motion. Dean then proceeds to have an epic freakout.

Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
Bobby shows up to help Sam, while Dean is “home sick”. Dean is having hallucinations while Sam and Bobby try to scare the ghost to death, so to speak.
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Supernatural
The Sheriff shows up at the hotel room, freaking out with hallucinations of his own, and then dies right on the floor in front of Dean. Dean continues freaking out as Lilith shows up and tells him he’s going back to hell.

Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Jim Beaver, Bobby Singer, Supernatural
Meanwhile, Sam and Bobby are enacting Sam’s plan, which is to get the chain around the ghost’s neck and for Bobby to drive as fast as he can, putting the ghost through his own death again, scaring him, and it works.

Story & Character Analysis:
Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Supernatural
This episode plays for laughs much more than usual, and that means a little less character development. However, there are still a few issues that arise.

Dean’s fears about Sam are personified in Dean’s hallucination of Sam as Yellow Eyes. This is emphasized at the end of the episode, when Dean is theoretically better and no longer infected by ghost sickness, and yet he briefly sees Sam’s eyes turn yellow.

Additionally, when Dean has a hallucination of Lilith at the end of the episode, she brings up his time in Hell, and it leaves the implication that Dean has a secret he isn’t telling Sam or Bobby.

Funny Moments:

The scary killer dog.

The scary killer dog.


Dean is running from a dog in terror. He passes a homeless man and warns him that the dog will kill him. Then the dog runs into the light and it’s a tiny cute dog with a bow on its head. Dean keeps running anyway, clearly still scared.

Jensen Ackles, Dean Winchester, Supernatural
Dean is basically comedic relief the entire episode. However, Dean’s ridiculous screaming at the cat in the locker is a highlight.

Supernatural Rewatch Recap – Season 2 – Episode 4 – Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things

Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester, SupernaturalSupernatural

Season 2 – Episode 4 – Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things

This episode delves into the theme of life and death and letting things go when it’s their time. Dean sees himself as not belonging and we learn he blames himself for their father’s death. This is echoed in the case of the week, about a zombie, a girl brought back to life by her friend who was in love with her.

The episode opens with a man trying to comfort a woman, Angela, who is suffering from a broken heart because her boyfriend cheated on her. Her ex-boyfriend, Matt, shows up at the door and he seems angry. She gets in the car and drives away. He calls her while she’s driving and they get into a fight. While they are fighting, Angela has a car accident and is killed.

Important Moments:
Dean Winchester
The brothers are at the cemetery, visiting their mother’s grave, apparently located in Illinois, which is explained away by saying their uncle had her buried there. While Sam is at the gravesite, Dean is wandering around the cemetery looking all kinds of uncomfortable. He sees a really gnarly (and gnarled) looking tree and realizes that the area he’s standing in has everything dead in it in a perfect circle around the grave of a woman named Angela Mason, the girl in the car accident in the teaser.

The episode opens in Montana, where a girl is running through the woods, clearly terrified. She stops and turns around when something with a sickle beheads her.

The brothers interview the police where the murders have been taking place and ask him if there is a connection between the cows being mutilated and the murders. The policeman laughs at them and says there is not such thing as cow mutilation.

The brothers go to the morgue to look at the severed heads and find a set of retractable vampire fangs in the woman’s head.

They go to a local bar and ask the bartender if there were any new people that moved to the area in the last six months, saying they would be rowdy and like to drink a lot. The bartender says a nearby farm was recently rented out and the camera pans to a man smoking a cigarette that seems to be paying close attention to Sam and Dean. The man then follows them out of the bar. Continue reading
