Storyline

Sam insists to visit ma Mary's grave, although empty and meaningless to Dean, who is however intrigued in the cemetery by the perfect circle of dead vegetation around the three days old grave of local college student Angela Mason who died in a car accident, suspecting the ground is desecrated, Sam thinks it's another diversion not to have to think about either deceased Winchester parent. Her roommate Lindsey says Angela's grieving boyfriend Matt Harrison just slit his throat, all plants in his place are also dead. Another student, Neil Levine, tells Matt blamed himself because Angela caught him with another girl the night of her accident, the boys find her grave empty except for a necromantic spell in Ancient Greek. Dean accuses Angela's pa, Dr. Mason, but Sam notices healthy plants and fears for his brother's sanity. Angela was actually resurrected by Neil, her still enamored ex, alas as a zombie who kills for revenge. Next target is Lindsey, the one she caught with Matt, but the ... Written by KGF Vissers

What Is Dead Should Stay Dead
16 June 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After an argument with her boyfriend Matt, who cheated her with their common friend Lindsey, the heartbroken teenager Angela visits her friend Neil that has a crush on her. However, Matt arrives in Neil's place and Angela escapes driving her car through the road in a rainy night, crashing and dying in the car accident. Three days later, Sam and Dean are traveling and Sam decides to visit his mother's grave. Dean becomes intrigued with the perfect circle around Angela's grave and decides to investigate the cause. He finds that the girl has been resurrected by an ancient Greek ritual of necromancy, and returned an evil zombie.

This great episode is homage to Bob Clark's "Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things" and also to the classic "Pet Sematary". In the conclusion, Dean sees himself in the same situation as Angela, since he feels that his father had exchanged his own life and the Colt for his life, and he concludes that what is dead should stay dead. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things" ("Crianças Não Devem Brincar com Coisas Mortas")
