Trivia

The title is a reference to an old Middle Eastern story: a Baghdad merchant sends his servant to the marketplace; the servants runs back home and explains that he was threatened by Death while at the market. The merchant sends the servant off to hide in Samarra, then goes to the market to talk to Death. Death explains that he had not threatened the servant - merely that Death was surprised to see the servant in Baghdad, "for we have an appointment tonight in Samarra." See more »

Goofs

At the end of the episode, Death greets Dean with bacon dogs and beer in Bobby's kitchen and is wearing the 'ring' he came back to get from Dean, but only for the first couple of seconds. When Death is offering Dean a bacon dog the ring is no longer on his finger. Then Dean pulls the ring out of his pocket and tells Death that he flunked the test. See more »

Quotes

Dean Winchester: What's the bet?
Death: Don't roll your eyes, Dean. It's impolite. Now when you fetch my ring, put it on.
Dean Winchester: What?
Death: I want you to be me for one day.
Dean Winchester: Are you serious?
Death: No, I'm being incredibly sarcastic.

The Natural Order
26 November 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dean goes to Dr. Robert to have a 3 minutes near-death experience to meet Death. They have a meeting and Death proposes Dean to wear his ring for 24 hours; in return, her would bring Sam's soul back and build a wall to isolate his traumatic period in Hell. Dean plays Death with Tessa and soon he learns that the natural order cannot be violated. Meanwhile Sam summons Balthazar to have a spell to avoid having his soul back and he needs to kill Bobby for the spell work.

"Appointment in Samarra" is one of the best episodes of Supernatural. Dean playing Death is great despite the problem he brings violating the natural order. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Encontro em Samarra" ("Meeting in Samarra")
