Sam and Dean investigate a reclusive young author, named Chuck Shurley, who has written a series of books and graphic novels about their adventures since starting out back in 2005, and try to find an explanation why he knows so much about their lives, while trying to find out what lies in store for them when he has a vision about a meeting with the evil Lilith.

Did You Know?
This episode's title is from the eponymous 1971 "Sesame Street" book written by Jon Stone
and illustrated by Mike Smollin
. In the book, the muppet character Grover learns that he will encounter a monster at the end; he is terrified of the prospect and tries to prevent it, but finally learns that he himself is the monster of the title. Likewise, in this episode, The Winchester brothers learn that they are characters in a book series, and they are powerless to alter the prophesied events of those books. There is also the implication (expanded on in subsequent episodes) that like Grover, Sam is the "monster at the end of this" story. See more
When asked what Dean's favorite song is he says "It's a tie, between Zep's Ramblin' On and Travellin' Riverside Blues." The Led Zeppelin
song is actually called Ramble On, not Ramblin' On. See more

There's Sam Girls and Dean Girls and- What's a slash fan?
As in Sam-slash-Dean. Together.
Like "together" together?
They do know we're brothers, right?
Doesn't seem to matter.
Oh, come on, that... that's just sick.
Instead of the usual opening title sequence, the episode opens with a montage of the Supernatural book illustrations and the front cover of the first book. See more
