Dean suggests that maybe the bugs are being controlled by someone. Sam says, " You mean like Willard?" "Willard" was a 1971 horror film about a social misfit who befriended and then trained a group of rats to do his bidding. See more »

Sam Winchester: [about Larry with his son] Remind you of somebody?
[Dean looks at them, confused]
Sam Winchester: Dad?
Dean Winchester: [surprised] Dad never treated us like that.
Sam Winchester: [laughs] Well Dad never treated YOU like that, you were perfect. He was all over my case.
[Dean thinks about it, shakes his head]
Sam Winchester: You don't remember.
Dean Winchester: Well, maybe he had to raise his voice, but sometimes you were out of line!
Sam Winchester: [sarcastic] Right, right, like when I said I'd rather play soccer than learn bow-hunting.
Dean Winchester: Bow-hunting's an important skill!

Cursed Land
6 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Oklahoma, a gas company employee is killed by insects in the housing development Oasis Plans. Dean and Sam decide to drive to the compound to investigate the event. They go to a open barbecue in the house of the owner of the lands, Larry, and meet a real state agent, pretending they were interested in buying a house. Sam becomes close to Larry's son Matt, who collects bugs. When the agent dies with spider bites in her bathroom, Dean and Sam discloses that the area is a land cursed by Indians many years ago, when they were annihilated by the American soldiers. The two brothers try to convince Larry to leave the place to save the life of his wife and Matt.

"Bugs" uses the idea of the biblical locust plague, but as a curse of Indians. In this episode, Sam shows a great identification with Matt, because of his troubled relationship with his father. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Insetos" ("Insects")
