Did You Know?


At the Halloween party, Dean introduces himself as FBI agent Seger, a possible nod to Bob Seger. Seger is an accomplished songwriter and rock legend inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. See more »


Samhain actually refers to a Celtic festival, and means 'Summer's end', not a mythological character called Samhain. There is a common misconception that Samhain referred to an ancient god of the dead. Also, "Samhain" is pronounced "SOW-in" (the first syllable rhyming with "cow") rather than "sam-hane," as it's pronounced in the episode. See more »


Sam Winchester: You know, my brother was right about you. You are dicks.
Uriel: The only reason you're still alive, Sam Winchester, is because you've been useful. But the moment that ceases to be true, the second you become more trouble than you're worth, one word, one, and I will turn you to dust.
Uriel: As for your brother, tell him that maybe he should climb off of that high horse of his. Ask Dean what he remembers from Hell.

It is pronounced "Sow Wan" not "Sam Hain"!!
12 January 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Please don't insult the Celtic Gods, I live in Ireland and will have the pay the price to our Pagan Lords!

Actually I am kinda surprised this is the first episode that make use of Celtic myths. We have tons of mystical characters that would make great stories. Most of them are mischievous.

Once again "Sam Hain" is wrong please do the research or just randomly phone ANY Irish person. We all speak Gaelic and can tell you how to pronounce it.

Do an episode about Sláine...he's a legendary warrior that slays demons...kinda Conan the Barbarian meets Dean Winchester!
