Sam vanishes and Dean tracks his brother through the cell phone, and finds Sam in a hotel in Twin Lake with amnesia and blood traces. They try to follows the last steps of Sam and they discover that Sam has killed a hunter in his cabin. Sam hits Dean and escapes to Duluth, Minnesota, where he meets and attacks Jo Harvelle. However Dean arrives and saves her but Sam escapes again. Dean finds Sam in South Dakota in the house of Bobby Singer, when they discover that Sam is possessed by a powerful demon.

"Born Under a Bad Sign" is another great episode, with a top-notch performance of Jared Padalecki that changes his behavior many times along the story. I found hilarious the scene when the demon is exorcised and Dean punches Sam on his face. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Nascido Num Signo Ruim" ("Born Under a Bad Sign")
