Quotes

Sam Winchester: I'm not evil, Dirk, I'm not. And neither were you. Trust me, I've seen real evil... We were scared and miserable, and we took it out on each other, us and everybody else. That's high school. But you duffer through that, and it gets better.

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")
