Storyline

While on the road, Sam gets an e-mail from his old school friend Becky telling that her brother and also Sam's friend Zach is arrested, accused of murder of his girlfriend. Zach claims that he was in another place at the same time, but the surveillance camera had taped his image in the crime scene. Sam convinces Dean to drive to St. Louis, Missouri, to investigate the typical doppelganger case. Once there, they disclose that a mutant is killing and hurting people in the neighborhood. When the shape shifter takes the form of Dean, things get complicated for the Winchester brothers. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When Sam is reading the email from Rebecca, we can see that the email is dated Dec. 3, 2005. However, when Dean accesses info on the brothers in episode 15, Dean's alleged death date is given as Mar. 7, 2006. Since this episode only takes place over the course of about one week, one of these dates must be inaccurate. See more »

One of the more creepy, dark episodes. It's an easy view and goes more into the character of Dean which has pretty much just been the comedic relief till now. The cgi was bad tho.
