Goofs

After being turned to "ghosts", Sam and Dean are walking down the street. Their breath is visible as they talk and breathe. Ghosts wouldn't be able to expel hot air causing this. (This may also have to do with the phenomena seen in most episodes to alert us to ghostly presence) See more »

The Place Where Nobody Dies
13 June 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sam and Dean head to Greybull, Wyoming, after reading that a man terminal with cancer and another shot in the heart had not died; further nobody has died for a week and a half. They discover that a demon has kidnapped the local Reaper and intends to kill him to break one of the 66 seals to bring the Apocalypse to Earth. They summon the blind psychic Pamela Barnes to help them to make an astral projection to save The Reaper. While ghosts, they meet the boy Cole Griffith that was the last deceased person in Greybull and knows where Alistair is hidden and Tessa that was sent as the substitute for the local Reaper. When Tessa is also abducted, they find that Alistair is responsible for the abductions and the powerful demon needs two Reapers to break the seal.

"Death Takes a Holiday" is another great episode with the return of the war between demons and angels and Alistair trying to break another seal. The story is very well written, with many pop references (I loved "Feeling like Demi Moore") and alternating dramatic and funny moments. The relationship of the Winchester brothers is really shaken by the lack of trust. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "A Morte Tira Férias" ("The Death Takes Vacation")
