Storyline

Sam is unable to sleep for many days with Lucifer disturbing him. When a car hits Sam, he goes to the hospital and the doctor in charge sends him to the psychiatric wing to help him to sleep, but Lucifer continues to drive him crazy. Sam befriends the patient Marin and helps her to get rid of the ghost of her brother. Meanwhile Dean calls Bobby's friends expecting to find someone that might help his brother. One hunter tells him about Emmanuel, a man apparently with healing power. When Dean meets Emmanuel, he recognizes his face. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Supernatural is starting to stall as a show!
24 March 2012 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Supernatural is starting to stall as a show! The script writers are starting to run out of ideas. The Born-Again Identity recycles an old character, and uses the same idea of spiritual weapons. I will not ruin the episode by giving too much away. The episode has Sam relapsing with the Devil tormenting him again. This episode's plot has more of the same plot devices. The Born-Again Identity is a bridge episode for a new storyline which, I think, will be like last season. I think the series could have a repeating storyline all season. Nothing special with viewing this episode. I give this segment a six out of ten viewing stars. However, the show is still well acted and directed.
