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.

Brothers against Evil: Man-controlled Grim Reaper
27 August 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

The twelfth episode of the terrific horror/thriller series "Supernatural" opens rather unusual since we meet up with Dean and Sam whilst their in the middle of battling a hideously large demonic werewolf type of creature. Normally, each episode slowly and mysteriously builds up towards a climatic battle against a certain type of evil, but it soon becomes clear that this demon won't be the star of this feature episode. Dean quickly defeats him but gets electrocuted in the process and picks up a heart affection of which the doctors think he'll die from within a month. That's only when the actual episode starts, as his loving brother Sam starts looking for a spiritual healer and finds one in the persona of Reverend Roy Le Grange. The blind and highly praised reverend miraculously cures Dean from his heart condition, but the two brothers almost instantly discover that the healing are based on black magic instead of Godly powers. Whenever the reverend heals someone, another poor and up-until-then healthy soul dies from the exact same condition that normally would have killed the believer. It's like the reverend actually instructs the grim reaper to go after someone else. "Faith" is another splendid entry in Eric Kripke's fantastic concept of two young brothers trying to exterminate various types of evil forces. The script of each and every single episode is solid and imaginative and the writers definitely know all the classic horror themed movies, TV-shows and even SONGS! The brilliance of this episode is particularly demonstrated during the scene where the reaper atmospherically chases a jogger through the woods guided by the rhythmic tunes of the legendary Blue Oyster Cult's song "Don't Fear The Reaper". That scene is just pure class and it shows how "Supernatural" is able to please different generations. The depiction of the reaper is quite creepy as well, since he's a sinister old man dressed in black and moving slow. I love this show and have the impression that it keeps getting better with every episode, though "Asylum" (number 10) remains my personal favorite so far.
