Did You Know?


The cat familiar that Dean is introduced to in the witch bar is named Philippe Lechat, which means "the cat" in French. This is a shout out to the Belgian comic Lechat by Philippe Geluck. See more »


This episode is set in "East St. Louis" and not St. Louis according to the opening descriptor. East St. Louis is located in the State of Illinois while St. Louis is located in the State of Missouri. The states are separated by a major river.

While the boys are supposed to meet their witch cop friend in his precinct in East St. Louis, the station has a few references to the State of Missouri instead of the State of Illinois. For example, the Missouri state flag is on the outside of the station .... East St. Louis flies Illinois flags - not Missouri. See more »

Mediocre episode of a totally different show?
5 January 2014 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

...because it was a truly awful one of Supernatural. If I didn't know the writers credited for this episode have credits on episodes dating all the way back to the first season (including some I really liked), I'd accuse them of never having watched the show before. The "witch community" featured in the episode a) comes out of nowhere, and b) isn't consistent with what we've seen of witches on Supernatural at any point in the preceding 7.5 seasons... was this a script for a different show where witches do hang out in an underground bar and sling lightning bolts around?

And even if that were the case, putting it back into its "native habitat" wouldn't erase some highly troubling things pertaining to the character Portia.

If I were advising a friend who was starting the show from the beginning, I'd probably point out a few other episodes that fell a little flat and could probably be skipped. This is the one I'd tell them outright not to waste 40 minutes on. It gets a 3 based on "production wasn't too bad", but I kind of want my time back.
