Cursed Rabbit Foot
12 August 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

During a visit in prison, Gordon convinces the fanatically religious hunter Kubrick that Sam is evil and opened the gate of hell; therefore he must die. While having an argument about the demon Ruby, Dean and Sam receive a phone call in their father cellular telling that his container stored outside of Buffalo has been broken in. The Winchester brothers head to Buffalo and track down the small time thieves Grossman and his partner. Meanwhile the thugs open a box that they have stolen and find a rabbit foot inside. When Dean and Sam break in the apartment, they have a strange fight with the criminals and they note that the rabbit foot is a lucky charm that gives good luck to anyone that touches it. They call Bobby Singer that tells them that that the foot is hoodoo prepared by a witch in Baton Rouge that gives good luck and fortune to the owner; however, if lost, the owner dies within a week. Sam and Dean decide to destroy the magic object, but they discover that they have been stolen by the greedy mercenary Bela Talbot. While Dean seeks out Bela in Queens, New York, the jinxed Sam is chased by Kubrick and his friend Creedy.

"Bad Day at Black Rock" is a funny episode of this show. The jokes are hilarious, there are good twists and Dean and Sam have a perfect timing and dialogs, supported by a witty screenplay; however, I prefer spooky episodes. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Dia Ruim em Black Rock" ("Bad Day at Black Rock")
