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

Trivia

The crew of _Supernatural_ inherited the dead tree seen in the cemetery in season 2's episode "Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things" from The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005) production. It's also the same dead tree that played prominently in the season 1 episode "Scarecrow". See more »

Goofs

When Dean first walks up to the dead tree in the cemetery, he's only wearing the pendant that Sam gave him. As he bends down to investigate the marker, he has a second chain around his neck but as he's walking away talking to Sam about the area, he only has the pendant on again. See more »

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.
