[pullquote]”I remember the fire. The heat. Then I carried you out the front door.”[/pullquote] We’re jumping forward a few episodes and heading to Lawrence, Kansas. In the past few episodes Sam and Dean have faced off against killer bugs, a shape shifter and the urban legend of a hook man. A woman is unpacking her […]

“We’re not going to save everybody.”
“Saving people, hunting things. . . the family business.” Just a heads up, if we ever go camping together and an unseen evil drags you off into the dark woods, I will not try to save you. I will not poke my head out of the tent flap and say, “Brad? I heard screaming. Is […]
