The Ghost Sickness
26 May 2010 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

Sam and Dean arrive in Rock Ridge, Colorado, pretending to be FBI agents to investigate the death of the marathon runner Frank O'Brien apparently by heart attack despite his good shape. After the autopsy and a couple of interviews, they discover that Frank was lately anxious and jumpy and has died scared to death. Sooner Bob advises Sam that the three victims in Rock Ridge have died of ghost sickness and Sam realizes that Dean has the symptoms of the disease with intense fear and paranoia. Bobby arrives in the town to help Sam to find the ghost of Luther garland that has spread the outbreak but the time to save Dean is running out.

"Yellow Fever" is a funny episode of Supernatural, with Jensen Ackles inspired performing a hilarious role. The conclusion with Bobby and Sam vanquishing the ghost is disappointing and this episode deserved a better ending. Nevertheless in the credits, Dean dubs the Survivor' song "Eye of the Tiger" from "Rocky III" and this attraction is a kind of compensation for the weak conclusion. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Febre Amarela" ("Yellow Fever")
