I Shot the Sheriff
5 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While chasing Bella in Monument, Colorado, Dean and Sam are set up by the despicable blonde and arrested by FBI Agent Victor Henricksen with the support of four local policemen. They are arrested in a cell in the precinct while waiting for transportation to a maximum security facility. When FBI Deputy Director Steven Groves arrives in the helicopter with his men, he tries to kill the Winchester brothers; Sam finds that he is possessed and succeeds in exorcising the demon that kills the agents outside the building. Then the skeptical Agent Henricksen is also possessed by a demon and kills Sheriff Melvin Dodd with a shot in his head. However Sam again exorcises the demon saving the life of Henricksen. Now the three survivors believe in the words of the brothers and they realize that thirty locals are possessed and the police station is besieged. They prepare to defend the building against the demon attack with salt and pentagrams when out of the blue, Ruby arrives with a deadly solution to kill the demons including herself. But Dean does not accept the price to be paid.

"Jus in Bello" is definitely the best episode of this great Third Season so far. The screenplay is excellent, with many twists, and I personally loved the joke of Dean with Eric Clapton's song when Henricksen says that he has shot the sheriff. Dean learns that there is a price to be paid in a war and the creepy Lilith could not have a more innocent appearance. The brothers must eliminate the despicable Bella that is permanently jeopardizing their mission with her trickery. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Terror na Delegacia" ("Terror in the Precinct")
