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

Pointless Episode!
1 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

This episode could have been better. It's pointless and an episode filler, nothing more.

Spoilers ahead! The brothers find out they have a half brother named Adam. The reason I found this episode pointless was why bother bringing in Adam only to kill him off at the end? It's just...nonsense. And I also found the episode predictable. i knew Adam was dead the moment I saw him. The writing is shoddy and I didn't like the actor who played him. They could have cast someone who actually looked like a bit of Dean or Sam. I just didn't see any family resemblance.

I'm surprised this episode got higher ratings than it deserved.
