Demonic Virus
6 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sam has a vision of Dean killing a man with a scar on the forehead, and the Winchester brothers drive to the small town of Rivergrove, Oregon. They discover that the victim is Duane Tanner, a pacific local that lives with his family. Sooner they disclose that most of the dwellers are possessed by a demoniac virus transmitted by blood, and they believe that demons want to destroy Rivergrove with the virus and spread an outbreak to the other towns.

"Croatoan" is another great episode of this homogeneous Second Season of Supernatural composed of excellent shows. The story is a sort of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", with a demoniac possession of a small town by the contamination of blood of the victims. In the relationship of the Winchester brother, Dean seems that is going to tell to Sam what their father had whispered to him. The unexpected twist in the conclusion with Duane and Sarge is the promise of a great sequel of this wonderful series. My vote is eight.
