Contrary to what other trivia in this section says, this is the only Season finale to NOT feature the song "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas. Instead, that song originally played over the montage in season 1 episode 21 ("Salvation") and can be heard on the DVD. However when the series was made available on Netflix, Due to licencing issues, changes were made to the music used in season 1. "Carry On Wayward Son" was replaced in the original mintage of 1.21 by a song called "Penance/Murder" by composer Christopher Lennertz, who composes scores for Supernatural. See more »

The Key of Salomon
26 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While visiting their father's friend Bobby Singer to learn more about demons, Dean and Sam are visited by Meg, who wants the ancient colt. They trap her completely powerless in the protective circles of the Key of Salomon and Dean interrogates her while Sam exorcises the demon that had possessed Meg's body. Before dying, Meg tells them where John Winchester is. Dean and Sam have to use their abilities to rescue John.

"Devil's Trap" is another great episode of this series. Full of action, the last episode of the First Season is interrupted in its climax. In my opinion, this usual procedure of the producers of TV Series is shameful, since we fans have to wait until the release of the next box of DVD. I do not understand why these people that do not have any respect for the fans and only aims money do not conclude the episode in the end of the season. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "A Armadilha do Diabo" ("The Devil's Trap")
