Grief and Clown
9 June 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While grieving the death of their father John Winchester, each in his own way, Sam shows to Dean a message in John's answering machine of a woman called Ellen offering her help. They seek Ellen and arrive in the Harvelle Bar, in Medford, Wisconsin, a place where hunters like to gather themselves. Ellen introduces her daughter Jo and the former MIT student and genius Ash that asks for fifty-one hours to give a hint of the demon. While waiting for Ash, they become aware of an evil clown in the nearby Cooper Circus that is slaughtering families and they decide to investigate, meeting the Hindu creature Rakshasa that takes the human form to feed with human flesh and uses children to be invited to their homes.

In this good episode, Sam and Dean grieve the death of their father in different ways: Sam expresses his pain while Dean hides it while trying to fix his car. There are new characters – Ellen, Jo and Ash – that probably will participate in the show, and the demoniac clown is really creepy. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Todos Amam o Palhaço" ("Everybody Loves the Clown")
