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

Trivia

The expression "jump the shark" is a term commonly used to describe the point in which a TV show has clearly passed its peak, often by adding characters or having bizarre plot points. The term originated from a Happy Days (1974) episode in which Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli performs a stunt in which he literally jumps over a shark while water-skiing. When Sam and Dean enter the diner, a poster for the "Fonzarelli Water-Skiing Championship" can be seen on the wall. See more »

One of the better episodes.
27 April 2009 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

One of the better episode. The Winchester brothers found out dad had another family, and a half brother. The story asks is the brother really who he say he is? The viewer, with the sub plot, finds out how harden Sam has become. Sam has evolved into his father. The show keeps the viewer interested with the plot twist where Dean and Sam find out there half brother and dad's love interest are really replicants of ghouls. The ghouls hated the Winchesters and wanted revenge over the death of their father. One asks the questions should John Winchester have left the ghouls alone in the first place? A very messy ending. I give Jump the Shark an eight out of ten. Worth watching!
