Sam has a premonition in which a man is killed, but the murder is made to look like a suicide. Sam convinces Dean that they must investigate the case, but the two are puzzled when they fail to find anything that indicates that the death was supernatural in nature. That is, until they find out that Max, the reclusive son of the first victim, has been using his recently acquired power of telekinesis to kill the family members that once abused him. Sam also discovers Max's mother was killed by the same fiery demon that took his own mom. Written by Anonymous

Sam's Premonitions Taken to a New Level
23 May 2012 | by (Moncton, NB, Canada) – See all my reviews

For the past few episodes, it has been revealed that Sam has been experiencing these premonitions in which terrible things are about to happen to others. Sam had been keeping this from Dean, until "Home", when Sam finally admits that he has psychic abilities. Now, the younger Winchester has been experiencing more visions of people dying, but with seemingly no connections to the supernatural. Every time Sam and Dean rush to the rescue, however, they are too late. It turns out that the deaths are connected to a boy named Max, who has been abused by his family to the point that he is ready to kill anyone who has hurt him in his childhood. Here's the thing, though. Max is just like Sam. Needless to say, Sammy is worried that he is going to go "rogue" and Dean is lying to himself, trying to convince them both that Sam will never become a killer.

Though not the best episode of Supernatural, "Nightmare" is definitely a solid hour, entertaining me and providing the usual chills expected from earlier seasons. I especially enjoyed the episode's climax. Sam's latest vision is that of Max delivering a fatal head shot to Dean. Trapped in a closet with the door blocked by a heavy dresser, Sam realizes that if he does not do something soon, the latest fatality will be his brother. In fear for his brother's life, Sam uses a new power, telekinesis, to move the dresser and save Dean. It is a beautifully written moment for Jared Padalecki, who has had fewer emotional moments than his co-star. His confrontation with Max was also well done. Padalecki's delivery as he tries to convince Max that everything will be fine is stellar! Good episode, solid 8 out of 10
