The Changeling
12 August 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When Dean reads the weird death of a man in Cicero, Indiana, on the news, he recalls his one night stand with the sexy Lisa Braeden eight years ago and heads with Sam to visit her. When he arrives at Morning Hill community where Lisa lives, she is giving a birthday party to her eight year-old son Ben and she invites Dean to join the party. Dean gets close to and feels a great connection with Ben, who behaves very similar to him. However, Dean and Sam discover that the community has recently had several mysterious deaths and that a Changeling is replacing the children by replicas to drain the spinal fluid of their mothers. Further, the mysterious blonde girl with a knife capable of killing demons that saved the life of Sam against the deadly sin demons visits Sam and raises an intriguing question about the fate of his mother's friends.

"The Kids Are Alright" is a spooky episode of "Supernatural". Despite the bad review that this episode would be another rip-off of Don Siegel's "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", it does not diminish the frightening caused by the images of the children disclosed in the mirrors. The possibility that Dean might have a son is the funny part of this episode, and the approach of the mysterious and sexy demon to Sam is intriguing. Who is this demon and what is her greatest objective will certainly be the mystery of this promising Third Season. I enjoyed also the beauty of the sexy actresses in this engaging show. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Tudo Bem com as Crianças" ("Everything All Right with the Children")
