Sam and Dean visit the Pierpont Inn, a creepy old mansion turned failing hotel. They meet the owner, Susan, and her daughter Tyler, who are packing to move after they sell the hotel. Tyler is playing with a little girl named Maggie. The brothers notice strange items around the hotel, including an urn with a familiar pattern, dolls with their heads backwards and Susan's mother, who looks vacant and beyond terrified. When Susan finds them in her mother's room trying to talk to her, she throws them out and threatens to call the cops. Written by Drifa Baljet (corrected by Samantha Sharpe)

Sam Winchester: Well, you are kinda butch, but I just think you're overcompensating.

A Funny Ghost Story
7 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While searching Ava, Sam and Dean read about two freak accidents in the old Pierpont Inn that was sold and will sooner end the activities and close. The brothers are welcomed by the owner and manager Susan and they see her daughter Tyler and Maggie. While investigating, they find Hudu symbols and believe that the place is cursed by Susan's mother Rose. However, they discover that the hotel is haunted by a spirit that can not move from the place and Rose was actually protecting the inn with Hudu.

This ghost story has a very funny moment, when Susan believes that Sam and Dean are gays, and a great plot point with the identity of Maggie. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Brinquedos" ("Toys")
