The local sheriff laughs at Sam and Dean's idea that a cult is behind it, claiming it happens naturally in the sun. But when Sam and Dean sneak into the morgue under false pretenses, they find a victim that has retractable vampire fangs. They catch demon hunter Gordon Walker, who claims to be a friend of their late father and having made both kills after six months of vampire chasing started years before to avenge his sister who was killed by a vampire. Dean confesses to him he misses his seemingly unstoppable dad desperately. The boys are just in time to save Gordon from another vampire, but Ellen Harvelle warns Sam that Gordon is capable, but too dangerous to work with. Returning to the motel, Sam is knocked down and kidnapped by the vampires led by Eli and Lenore, who claim their ... Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


During the filming of this episode Jared Padalecki (Sam) injured his hand when he fell badly during a stunt. He thought it was merely sprained and went straight into filming the next episode (2.04 "Children Shouldn't Play With Death Things") without having it checked. But it got more and more painful and finally he went to the doctor and discovered that his hand was, in fact, broken. Because he had already begun filming, he couldn't bandage the hand until filming for that episode was finished. The writers ended up writing in an accident for Sam and his line "I think she broke my hand" to explain the fact that for the following few episodes he would be wearing a cast. See more »


After Gordon cuts Sam's arm, two drops of blood fall onto Lenore's face. When Sam later helps her up, his blood is gone from her face. See more »

Life In Shades of Gray
9 June 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dean and Sam read in the newspaper about mutilated cattle and two decapitated persons in Red Lodge, Montana, and they head to the location in Dean's new car expecting to find a satanic cult. They lure the morgue attendant and check the head of one of the victims, finding vampire fangs. They go to a bar seeking information, where they meet the hunter Gordon Walker that tells them that he killed two vampires and is now seeking their nest. Later they rescue Gordon from a strong vampire and while Dean and Gordon celebrate, Sam goes to the motel. However, Ellen advises Sam that Gordon is a dangerous man and Sam is kidnapped by a group of vampires leaded by Lenore, who tells Sam that they do not harm human beings, being fed by the blood of cattle, changing his perspective. But Gordon is chasing the nest alone.

"Bloodlust" is a great episode of Supernatural, where Sam and Dean learn that in life, the gray does exist and not only the black and white. In this case, the vampires are not evil and the hunter proves to be a sadistic hunter. Sam shows to be a sensitive young man and the tougher Dean shows that is fair, accepting when he is wrong. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Sede de Sangue" ("Thirsty of Blood")
