[Jill has been killed by Bloody Mary]
Charlie: [sobbing] ... And they found her on the bathroom floor, and h-h-her, her *eyes*... they were g-gone.
Sam Winchester: I'm sorry.
Charlie: And she said it! I heard her say it! But it couldn't be because of that. I'm insane, right?
Dean Winchester: No, you're not insane.
Charlie: [softly] Oh God, that makes me feel so much worse.
Sam Winchester: Look, we think something's happening here. Something that can't be explained.
Dean Winchester: And we're gonna stop it.

Brothers against Evil: Bloody Urban Mary!
23 March 2007 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

The fifth and arguably coolest episode of "Supernatural" thus far handles about one of the most common urban legends; "Bloody Mary". On their continuing search for their vanished father, the evil-fighting brothers Sam and Dean read a peculiar obituary in the local newspapers of Toledo, Ohio and promptly decide to stick around and investigate. Bloody Mary normally always appears when you say her name in front of a mirror three times, and she kills the person who summoned her by making their eyes explode. But in this case the victim himself didn't repeat her cursed name, but his teenage daughter did when she was playing "Truth or Dare" with a couple of girlfriends. Reasons enough for Sam and Dean to research the true origin of the macabre urban legend and discover the supernatural significance of ordinary mirrors. A second victim learns them that Bloody Mary exclusively kills people who're hiding a dark secret and Sam develops a plan to lure the restless ghost into a trap. This simple one-hour TV-episode of "Supernatural" is much better than all three "Urban Legends"-slashers combined, as it's definitely scarier and more involving. The brothers' methods to reveal the true origin behind ancient and naturalized folklore legends and urban legends is a lot more insightful and compelling than watching a horribly masked maniac stalking a bunch of yelling beauty-queens with a meat cleaver. This episode also gives a handful of 'educational' trivia details about the supernatural qualities of mirrors (how they're able to capture the soul of a deceased person and why the mirrors of a haunted house should always remain covered, etc…) and it effectively enlarges the mystery surrounding the death of Sam's girlfriend in episode one. The acting performances of Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles get better with each episode and "Bloody Mary" also contains some impressive special effects and uncanny jump-moments. "Bloody Mary" is a splendid entry in an even more splendid show.
