The Message from The Death
22 April 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dean and Sam travel to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, that is Bobby's hometown, to investigate a murder that a witness tells that had been committed by a man that died five years ago.

Sooner the Winchester brothers discover that the dead are resurrecting and returning to their families. Further, Bobby's beloved wife Karen is one of the zombies and Bobby asks the brothers to leave the town. Five days later, the undead turn to evil zombies starved for human flesh and Bobby receives a message from The Death.

"Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid" is an episode where the third Horseman of Apocalypse shows his evilness, bringing back to life the beloved relatives and friends from a small town and then he makes them grieve their losses again. Bobby has a strange attitude for a man used to fight against evil creatures, despite his love for his wife. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Os Mortos Pedem Vingança" ("The Dead Ask for Revenge")
