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.

The worst episode till now
9 February 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Awwww, this is such a pity. Supernatural started as such a promising serial. Every episode with another horror story led by two solid characters, with not to much flaws in personality.

Then this episode came. Despite their hunting history together all of a sudden Sam stops trusting on Deans hunters instinct even though the prove of something going on is right in front of him. Dean suddenly starts to confront people that do not know what he is talking about. That's really strange because last season he was actually very good at knowing when someone was lying or not. This kind of mistakes really ruins it for me, I'd like to see the characters in whom I invest a lot of time to grow, get stronger, get smarter, learn. Not to see them change into some empty puppets who just follow some poor script.

For now I will still keep watching this serial, but I'm not really buying it anymore.
