Storyline

Sam and Dean try to save the life of architect Evan Hudson who sold his soul to a demon so that his wife could live a long and healthy life free of cancer. While Sam protects Evan from hell hounds, Dean is tempted by the demon, who tries to convince him to trade his soul for his father's life, who she claims did the same to save Dean and is now suffering in hell for it.

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

The picture of the black dog that Dean comments on is actually that of Fenrir, a monstrous wolf in Norse mythology, not a hell hound. His destructive powers were so feared that the gods had no choice but to imprison him. Also in the picture is the god Tyr, a deity noted for his courage and strength. See more »

A Very Good Episode!
19 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even though a lot of Supernatural's episodes are very similar, this one was very good and well put together. You learn a little background information and more about Dean's personality.

Dean gets frustrated with this week's demon because he believes that his father made a deal; his life for Dean's. Dean doesn't want that burden, and when he summons the demon of the week, he contemplates over whether or not to bring back his father in exchange for his life 10 years later.

One thing I didn't like about this episode was the acting from Dean's demon. She was so completely over the top and it threw up a huge "Over Acting" flag in front of my face. She got really annoying and she could have toned everything down a little bit.

Overall, great episode, guys! Can't wait for the next one!
