This television drama is about the two Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, who were raised by their father, John, to hunt and kill all things that go "bump in the night" after his wife, Mary, was murdered by an evil supernatural being when the boys were young. 22 years later the brothers set out on a journey, fighting evil along the way, to find their recently missing father who, when they finally meet up with, reveals he knows what killed their mother, a demon, and has found a way to track and kill it. Meanwhile, Sam starts to develop frightening abilities that include death visions, visions of people dying before it actually happens. These visions are somehow connected to the demon who murdered his mother and its mysterious plans that seem to be all about Sam. When their father dies striking a deal with the very same devil that had killed his wife, the brothers, now alone and without their mentor, are determined to finish the crusade their father started. But disturbing revelations ... Written by

In season two, Linda Blair
guest-starred as a detective investigating the brothers. At the end of the episode, she said, "I need you two out there doing what you do best. I know I'll sleep better at night." This is clearly a nod to her role as Regan in The Exorcist
(1973), as she was possessed by a demon. As the brothers walk away Dean says, "Does she look familiar to you?" Then he exclaims that he is craving pea soup, which was what Blair projectile-vomited in The Exorcist (1973). See more
The show's rules say that the biggest flag for demonic possession is sulfur. We often see Sam and Dean sniff for it, or sniff a yellow powder suspected to be sulfur. Pure sulfur actually doesn't have the rotten-egg odor we associate with it - that's hydrogen sulfide, which is a gas. Pure sulfur is odorless. See more

Oh, come on.
It's killing me!
Let it go.
