When Sam and Dean investigate the disappearance of a man who was looking into a tourist attraction known as "The Mystery Spot" -- where the laws of physics don't apply -- Sam is thrown into a repeating loop, living the same day over and over, and watching Dean die each time in a different way as Sam avoids the method that killed him the last time.

It's Groudhog day
20 February 2008 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

I love how 'Supernatural' can create a parody and turn it upside down. Sam, just like in the movie 'Ground Hog Day' is reliving the same Tuesday over and over. The episode 'Mystery Spot' pays many homages to the movie 'Ground Hog Day'. One example is Sam catching the Tobasco sauce bottle in the diner. The character Dean even uses a reference towards the movie 'Ground Hog Day'. A funny episode, watching Sam's frustration over the circumstance and how goofy and annoying Dean can be. There is some dark humor in this episode regarding what happens to Dean! A hug plot twist with a character from the past and what is going to happen in the future. 9 out of 10 Still the best show on TV. Better than Jericho.
