Did You Know?


In Dean's recollection of Purgatory, Benny whistles slightly off-key, 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' from the opera 'Peer Gynt' by Edvard Grieg. This is the same tune whistled by Peter Lorre in the classic film "M". This film is loosely based on the murderer also called the Vampire of Dusseldorf. See more »


Sam Winchester: You did try to kill his mother.
Dean Winchester: I was trying to kill Crowley! Who just happened to be wearing Kevin's mother at the time.
[Sam gives annoyed look]
Dean Winchester: Well there's a difference!
Sam Winchester: Apparently not to Kevin. Maybe because, oh yea, it's his MOTHER!

So far, Definitely The Best Episode of Season 8
31 October 2012 | by Dejan KSee all my reviews

What can I say, the episode has everything: romance, bromance, drama, and action thrills to get your blood pumping. The episode had everything that originally hooked me to Supernatural. This episode is more like the Supernatural I have grown to love. What worked: -Loved the flashbacks to purgatory -Benny is awesome and very bad ass -A few good laughs What did not work: -How can Dean sneak up on vampires if they can hear a human's beating heart blocks away? It doesn't make sense in light of previous episodes. Still a 10/10! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Go Supernatural!
