Storyline

When a fourth person vanishes in Elwood, Indiana, and the witnesses claim that they have been abducted by aliens, Dean and Sam head to the town to investigate the UFO sightings. They contact the father of the last victim, Mr. Brennan, who is a traditional watchmaker, and the Winchester brothers suspect that the man is hiding something. Dean and Sam interview people on the streets expecting to find a clue. Among the interviewees, they talk to UFO expert Wayne Whittaker Jr. and the apparently crazy Marion, who is an expert in fairies. While investigating the cornfield where the victims had disappeared, Dean is abducted by a bright light. Sam continues to investigate and forces Brennan to disclose that he had used a spell to summon fairies to help him in his store. Dean returns and now the only chance of the brothers is are the advices of Marion about the fairies. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Guest star Robert Picardo and Jensen Ackles both appeared on Smallville (2001). Ackles played the character of Jason Teague and Picardo played his father Edward Teague. The two actors never shared any scenes together on "Smallville" but they do in this episode of "Supernatural". See more »

Goofs

(at around 31 mins) In the alien followers camp, there's a woman looking through a telescope. This is a Newton telescope, which is a hollow tube with a concave mirror at one end. The eyepiece is located close to the open end of the tube, so the telescope shown is actually pointing downwards towards the ground. The six screws that can be seen in the "opening" of the tube that is pointing towards the sky are in fact the concave mirror mount and adjustment screws. See more »

Quotes

[while trying to banish the fairies to their realm, the Leprechaun, previously disguised as a UFO nut, appears and kills Brennan]
The Leprechaun: Sorry about the mess, but your friend here went back on his deal.
Sam: Well, you weren't very clear with him on the terms.
The Leprechaun: I told him there was a price. Once we come, we come to stay.
Sam: So you take firstborns and then what? You just sit back and watch while they cover the abductions for you with all that crazy UFO crap? Which you help encourage, naturally. Nice con. But, ...

Could have been better, could have been worse
11 January 2011 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

It was interesting to see Supernatural tackle fairy lore, which actually has a lot more horror potential than most people realize. If you look at old-school, traditional fairy lore, it's actually pretty dark, and includes some pretty nightmarish creatures. It was the Victorians who began to romanticize them, and then Disney made the cutesy image of the little sprite with wings universally known to the point where that's the only image of fairies that most people have these days. But if you read some of the older tales, or listen to still-current ones in rural Ireland or Scotland, fairies are anything but cute and harmless.

I liked that they touched on a little of that, with the presence of the Redcap who was stalking Dean (Redcaps are a particularly nasty sort of fairy from Scottish folklore, who are known for eating lost travellers, and dye their caps red with human blood), but I was a bit disappointed that they couldn't resist throwing in the Disney version of fairies as well - though I have to admit the fight scene with that one was hilarious, as was the way it was resolved.

The parallels between UFO and fairy abductions have actually been pointed out by quite a lot of people before this - I've seen that topic dealt with by everyone from folklorists to science fiction authors.

Overall, a pretty entertaining episode, though not one with a lot of substance. But someday I'd love to see a show that took full advantage of the horror-potential of traditional fairy lore, without feeling the need to include the stereotypical Disney image.
