Storyline

Dean and Sam travel to Fairfax, Indiana, to investigate a murder case in the Truman High School where the teenager killer April Dawkins claims to be possessed in the moment she killed her schoolmate Taylor. While the Winchester brothers check the school and follow a wrong lead, they recall through flashbacks of their past in the same high-school. In 1997, Dean flirted with the sexy Amanda Heckerling and Sam befriended the bullied Barry Cook and defended him against the bully Dirk MacGregor. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

At San Diego Comic Con 2015, when asked if the Winchester brothers would defeat their new enemy, Jared Padalecki (Sam) replied "Yeah, because we're not the LOSEchesters," and in this episode, the bully who terrorized Sam and his friend Barry taunts Sam by saying "Come on LOSEchester!" See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the episode, in a flashback to high school, Dean receives a call from John on a modern cell phone that fit in teen-aged Dean's hand. Sam and Dean would have been in high school in the mid- to late- 90's, when cell phones were very large and bulky. See more »

Dean and Sam travel to Fairfax, Indiana, to investigate a murder case in the Truman High School where the teenager killer April Dawkins claims to be possessed in the moment she killed her schoolmate Taylor.

In 1997, Dean flirted with the sexy Amanda Heckerling and Sam befriended the bullied Barry Cook and defended him against the bully Dirk MacGregor.

"After School Special" is a nice and funny episode of Supernatural. The story of the young Dean and Sam helps to build both characters and the theme bullying could not be more updated. The actors Collin Ford and Brock Kelly have good performances and give credibility to the youthfulness of the Winchester brothers. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Especial: Depois da Escola" ("Special: After School")
