Storyline

Sam and Dean investigate a small town in Wisconsin where children are falling into comas for no apparent reason. The brothers discover that a witch is creeping into the bedrooms of the children and stealing their "life force." While battling the witch, Dean recalls a past mistake that almost cost Sam his life at the hands of the very same witch, an event which has fueled Dean's protectiveness over Sam and his blind obedience to his father.

Trivia

Even though Fitchburg, WI (where the episode is set) is a real place, Fort Douglas, WI (where the flashbacks are set) does not actually exist. However, both Fort McCoy and Camp Douglas are located very close to each other and are often mistaken for each other by civilians and non-locals. See more »

Goofs

In the first scene, when the father turns out the light for the girl, there is a small gap between the overhead light turning off and the "night-time" lighting going on. See more »

Quotes

Sam Winchester: What're you saying, Dean? How is it your fault? Dean. You've been hiding something from the get-go. Since when does Dad bail on a hunt? Since when does he let something get away? Now talk to me, man! Tell me what's goin' on.
Dean Winchester: Fort Douglas Wisconsin. It was, it was the third night in this crap room and I was climbin' the walls, man, I needed to get some air.

Brothers against Evil: Wicked Witch of Wisconsin
10 May 2009 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Good old-fashioned spooky and atmospheric installment in the wondrously entertaining first season of the show "Supernatural", this episode "Something Wicked" revolves on a witch-like demon – called the Shtriga – that feeds on the vitality and life-force of children and wipes out the youthful community of a small American town every ten years. It looks as if the children are stricken with an outbreak of a pneumonia epidemic, but in reality they're slowly dying from the inside. It is Sam & Dean's own father who lead the brothers to the Shtriga's new playground in a small Wisconsin town, as he knows that Dean has an old and personal score to settle with this demonic creature. This episode finds the ideal balance between creepy monster mayhem and the fascinating background of the Winchester family. The Shtriga witch looks reasonably menacing, dressed in an ugly brown monk outfit and wrinkly skin, the ambiance is thoroughly sinister and the dialogs once again contain fantastic moments of black comedy.
