Did You Know?


After Jimmy is shot by Amelia (possessed by a demon), he falls to his knees and he is in the middle of the floor. however when Castiel (possessing Claire) kneels by his side and talks with him, he is leaning against a wall on the side of the room. He should still be in the middle of the floor unless he moved himself over (off screen) during the fight. See more »


In the very first scene as Dean sits on the deck, the tackle box at his feet is open with the lid resting on its propped handle. However, during the conversation with Castiel, the lid is flat on the deck, then goes back to its previous position once Castiel is gone. See more »

Misha is an incredible actor
6 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

This episode is one of my favourite Supernatural episodes EVER! It shows Misha's incredible acting ability as well as shedding some light on Castiel's vessel's back story.

I thought that Misha's acting was amazing, as he was able to create two totally different characters and could shift easily from one to the other when required. The ability of the actresses playing Jimmy's wife and daughter should not be underestimated either, nor should that of Jared and Jensen.

I would thoroughly recommend that you watch this episode, even if you are not a huge Supernatural fan. It is well worth the watch!
