Storyline

While in a motel, Sam and Dean receive a call from their father, asking them to give up trying to find him and to take note of the names of three young couples that had disappeared in Indiana along the last three years, always on the second week of April. Sam decides to go after his father in California and leaves Dean, who arrives in the small town of Burkitsville for investigation of the missing couples. Sam meets the drifter Meg, who is also hitchhiking to California on the road, and stays with her waiting for a bus in the bus station. Dean discloses that a pagan god is demanding sacrifices in a fertility ritual in the annual cycle of killings with the support of the locals and a creepy scarecrow. When Dean and a local girl are offered to the scarecrow, Sam returns to help them. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Sam Winchester: [on cell] The scarecrow climbed off its cross?
Dean Winchester: Yeah I'm tellin' you. Burkettsville Indiana. Fun little town.
Sam Winchester: It didn't kill the couple, did it?
Dean Winchester: No. No, I *can* cope without you, you know.
Sam Winchester: So something must be animating it. A spirit.
Dean Winchester: No, it's more than a spirit. It's a god. A pagan god, anyway.
Sam Winchester: What makes you say that?
Dean Winchester: The annual cycle of its killings, and the fact that the victims are always a man and a woman, like some kind of fertility rite. And you should see the locals. The way they treated ...

Family Is Above Everything

While in a motel, Sam and Dean receive a call from their father, asking them to give up trying to find him and to take note of the names of three young couples that had disappeared in Indiana along the last three years, always on the second week of April. Sam decides to go after his father in California and leaves Dean, who arrives in the small town of Burkitsville for investigation of the missing couples.

Dean discloses that a pagan god is demanding sacrifices in a fertility ritual in the annual cycle of killings with the support of the locals and a creepy scarecrow. When Dean and a local girl are offered to the scarecrow, Sam returns to help them.

"Scarecrow" is another great episode of "Supernatural", where the brothers face the menace of an invincible scarecrow possessed by a god and learns that family is above everything. The intriguing character of Meg shows in the last scene that will certainly meet Dean and Sam in the next episodes. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Espantalho" ("Scarecrow")
