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 "Crossroad Blues", from which this episode takes its title, is playing when Robert Johnson makes his deal with the demon at the crossroads. The version used is actually sung by the real Robert Johnson. It is the only recording ever made of him singing that song. 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 »

Quotes

Dean Winchester: [after crossroads demon kisses him] What the hell was that for?
Dean's Demon: Sealing the deal.
Dean Winchester: You know, I usually like to be warned before I'm violated by demon tongue.

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!
