Storyline

Ellen's daughter Jo proves to the Winchester brothers Ash taught her well to research a case file, notably on a Philadelphia apartment building where young blond female residents disappear since about 80 years, but after so many years the police never considered a serial killing. Dean reluctantly takes the case which seems genuine when Sam finds ectoplasm, but even covers for Jo when she follows them and quickly rents the room of the latest victim, understands when he finds she's hell-bent on 'hunting', even serving as bait, because it's her way to feel closer to her late dad, who once was a partner of pa Winchester. Ellen shows them the building is next to a former prison, the list of executed murderers includes the real name of H.H. Holmes, the first-ever American to be dubbed a serial (at the time 'multiple') killer. After searches for hidden rooms, like in Holmes' Chicago 'hell house' which had traps as well as dungeons for his sadistic slow murders, Sam figures out after Jo has ... Written by KGF Vissers

The Truth About the Relationship of John Winchester and Ellen
29 June 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Dean and Sam visit Ellen and Joanna Beth in the Harvelle Bar, and Jo shows her file about the disappearance of six blonde girls during the last eighty years in an apartment building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She tries to convince the Winchester brothers to bring her to investigate the case; but Dean refuses the request afraid of Ellen's reaction. They break-in the apartment of the last victim and when Sam finds ectoplasm, they realize that a fiend is hunting the location. When they leave the place, they meet Jo with the super and find that she had lied to Ellen telling that she was going to Las Vegas and had just rented the foregoing apartment. Their further investigation discloses that in the past, before the construction of the building, the field was next to a prison and used to execute criminals, including the serial killer H.H. Holmes. When Jo decides to search the last victim behind the walls, she is captured by the evil spirit, and Dean and Sam figures out how to rescue Jo and escape from the wrath of Ellen.

"No Exit" is and engaging but flawed episode of "Supernatural". The story has good moments, like the revelation of Ellen to Jo about her relationship with John Winchester, but I honestly believed Jo was actually sister of Dean and Sam. The greatest flaw of the story is the use of the sledge hammer in the walls of the apartment building does not bring the attention of the super or the dwellers. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Sem Saída" ("No Exit")
