The Real Truth of the Yellow-Eyed Demon
9 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Get ready for a roller-coaster!

In The Beginning is one of the series' most important episodes. It shows us the lives of the brothers' parents when they were young, as well as giving us a plot point that goes back to the whole beginning of the show, one involving the Yellow-Eyed Demon from the first two seasons. The revelation is completely shocking, but one that makes sense and was carefully planned out. This episode stands as season four's best and one of the top 5 episodes of the entire series, one that is sure to mess with you head and emotions. By the way, the actress playing Mary Winchester is HOT!
