Storyline

Sam and Dean are contacted by one Adam Milligan who claims to be John Winchester's son. The boys immediately suspect a demon trap and go to investigate. Adam turns out to legitimately be John's son and Dean is furious that John kept Adam's existence from them as well as sheltered Adam from the hunting life. Meanwhile other supernatural forces are at work, which lead to a tragic twist that neither Sam, Dean, or their new sibling could have guessed. Written by Livy

The Unknown Half-Brother
20 June 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Sam and Dean receive a phone call from Windom, Minnesota, from a teenager that wants to contact John Winchester. They drive to meet Adam Milligan that claims to be John's son and he tells that his mother has been missing for three days. The Winchester brothers discover that their father had traveled to Minnesota in 1990 to investigate a case of missing bodies and the two next pages of his journal are torn out. Further, there are three corpses missing in the cemetery and the police believe that hooligans are the responsible. The skeptic Dean is cautious with Adam while Sam trusts on Adam and teaches how to hunt supernatural creatures. Dean leaves Sam protecting Adam while he follows a lead in a crypt and sooner he discovers that they are chasing ghouls.

"Jump the Shark" is another diversion in the mainstream of the Fourth Season. However the story of the unknown half-brother and the orphan ghouls is creepy and entertaining. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Irmão" ("The Brother")
