Goofs

When Sam pulls the rack away from the window to reveal the the name of the store as "Ashland Supplies" (Only Ashland Sup is fully visible as the sign has deteriorated). They turn around and see the name beaming on the wall. The way the sign was on the window was dark letters on a clear glass background so the letters on the wall should have been shadow letters on a sunlit background. It instead was sunlit letters on a shadow background. See more »

Death Omen
30 June 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Baltimore, Maryland, Sam and Dean are arrested by the local police while investigating the murders of the lawyer Tony Giles and his wife Karen by a spirit. Detective Peter Sheridan is convinced that Dean is guilty while his partner and lover Detective Diana Ballard is aware that they just have circumstantial evidences against the Winchester brothers. Dean decides to tell the truth about the case, i.e., that Tony had seen and was killed by a vengeful spirit that wants justice, but nobody believes on his words. However, when Det. Ballard also sees the ghost of a woman with a sliced throat, she wonders whether Sam and Dean might be telling the truth. Together with Sam, Det. Ballard identifies the ghost as the heroine addicted Claire Becker, and Sam realizes that she is a death omen.

"The Usual Suspects" is a great episode with the guest star Linda Blair in a sort of tribute to "The Exorcist". The beginning with Sam telling what happened while the flashbacks show what really happened is very funny. The story is engaging and reasonably resolved. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Os Suspeitos Habituais" ("The Usual Suspects")
