Storyline

When Dean is accidentally electrocuted fighting a monster, he permanently damages his heart. When he's diagnosed as only having a month, at most, to live, Sam searches for a means to save him and finds Roy Le Grange, a faith healer who may actually be the real deal. After Le Grange heals Dean, the brothers discover that Le Grange is using black magic to bind a "Reaper" to do his bidding... and each healing comes with a terrible price of someone else's life.

Rich in drama and faith...
8 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Faith remains the best episode of the first season, simply because it goes from the basics of the show to provide a dark, more realistic look to the life lived on faith. Jensen Ackles gives it his best, as does the guest star Julie Benz, who can really act drama! The episode is deeper than most Supernatural episodes of the first season, an in that respect, it also creates a dread and gloom that is present in the direction and cinematography, which are both superb. The episode was criminally overlooked in the Emmys, but of course, why would the Emmys look at a supernatural show like this (seeing as how Buffy was snubbed madly as well).
