Not that bad
27 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

In this episode Sam and Dean meet with Adam, John's son, it explains exactly why their father was always missing. Sam and Dean gets a call from Adam and meet at a snack bar, dean gets jealous and thinks it's a trap, after a long chat they go to Adam's house and he reports his mother is missing, Dean finds out that she is probably dead. After talking to dean, Adam tells about experiences with his daddy that Dean never happened to have with John and that somehow burns the poor Dean. They decide let Adam join them in the investigation, and they find out that more people are missing and it is all connected to the grave robbery that happened and took place at the city few years ago which had John involved, so the brothers think it is a revenge. Dean goes to the grave yard and Sam is hit and tied up by Adam and his mother. Dean and Sammy find out that they are dealing with a ghoul. This episode is pretty boring in the beginning but it gets better in the end. The author caught us all by setting the ghoul there in the whole episode making the fool of us all
