Trivia

The song performed at the beginning of the episode is a bluesy, acoustic version of Larry Davis "Texas Flood"; made famous by Stevie Ray Vaughan, going along with the show's classic rock theme. See more »

Goofs

Robert Johnson, the guitar player at the opening of the episode, can be seen smoking a filtered cigarette. Filtered cigarettes were not a standard until after 1954. As the opening scene takes place in rural Mississippi in 1938, it is highly unlikely filtered cigarettes would be available. See more »

A Great Tribute to Fans of Blues
2 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In August of 1938, a blues singer is chased by invisible hounds in Greenwood, Mississippi. Eight years before, Robert Johnson had made a deal with the devil in a crossroad in Rosedale. In the present days, after the death of an architect and a surgeon successful in their careers that had claimed to be haunted by hell hounds, Dean and Sam investigate and find that ten years ago they had made a deal with a demon in a bar to have success in their lives together with a third man. Their further investigation leads them to Evan, the third man that exchanged his soul to save his beloved wife that was dying with cancer. While Sam protects Evan from the invisible hounds, Dean summons the demon in the crossroad to trap and exorcise him. However, the demon tries to tempt Dean offering the life of his father that is suffering in hell.

"Crossroad Blues" is another great episode of this excellent Second Season of Supernatural. The story is based on the legend that Robert Johnson made a deal in a crossroad with the devil in the 30's and a wonderful tribute to fans of blues. The smart demon unravels the painful feelings that Dean has had since the death of his father, increasing his pain and doubts about the suffering of John Winchester in hell. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Blues da Encruzilhada" ("The Crossroad Blues")
