Sam and Dean investigate the murders of a lawyer and his wife who claimed to have seen a ghost right before they died. However, after local detectives Ballard and Sheridan uncover the Winchesters' records, they arrest the brothers for a double homicide before they are able to find the ghost. When the ghost begins to visit Ballard, she begins to wonder if the tale Sam and Dean are telling her could be true, and if she might be the next to die. Written by

Dean's lawyer mentions he could be facing the death penalty. However, Maryland does not have the death penalty, although Missouri (where the shape-shifter framed Dean for murder in the season 1 episode Skin) does and there are several mentions of the possibility of extradition, including the build-up to the final showdown at the end of the episode.

You murdered them in cold blood, just like that girl in St. Louis.
Oh, yeah. That wasn't me either. That was a shape-shifter type creature that only looked like me.
