|SAM AND DEAN INVESTIGATE MONSTER FAMILIES IN CHICAGO — Dean and Sam investigate a case in Chicago, where they discover that various mafia-esque monster families are, unknown to humans, running the underbelly of Chicago. One is a family of shape-shifters run by Margo Lassiter, whose leadership is thrown into question when her brother, David, returns home. The other reigning family in town is made up of werewolves, lead by Julian Duval. While in Chicago, Sam and Dean meet Ennis, a man with a personal vendetta against the monsters. The Winchesters warn Ennis about heading into the hunter lifestyle, but Ennis refuses to listen and starts down a dangerous path...|
- Sal (to Julian) - "You werewolves, you think you’re so special, when really you’re just sons of b**ches.”
- Sam (to Ennis) - "My name is Sam Winchester, that’s my brother Dean. We kill vampires. And werewolves and demons and basically we chase down evil and we cut its head off.”
- David - "My name is David Lassiter. I’m a shapeshifter."
Ennis - “You’re a what?"
David - “We shift our shape. It’s kind of all there in the name."
- Dean (to David) - " So you’re telling me there are five monster families that run Chicago? What is this, Godfather with fangs?”
- Dean - "You're with me, Romeo."
David - "Sounds good, Buffy."
- Will Chicago continue to be ruled by the 5 monster families?
- Will Dean and Sam return or send other Hunters to help Ennis?
- Will Ennis survive as a rookie Hunter with no backup?
- Five Monster families run Chicago and other monster families have nests in New York and maybe other cities across the U.S.
- This episode was intended to be the pilot episode for a Supernatural series spinoff. As of this writing, the show has not been picked up
- The five monster families that run Chicago are werewolves, shapeshifters, djinn, ghouls, and sirens (which are not mentioned in this episode)
- Several cast members from this episode have appeared previously in Supernatural: Melissa Rogers, the actress who plays Violet, played Lila Taylor (Kronos' girlfriend) in Time After Time (season 7); Gardiner Miller, who plays a bodyguard, also played the deadly sin Wrath in The Magnificent Seven (season 3); and Michael Rogers, who played Irv, was the deadly sin Gluttony in The Magnificent Seven
- Dean introduces himself and Sam as "Agents Bonham and Peart, FBI," referencing drummers John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) and Neil Peart (Rush), who are two of the best rock drummers of the 20th century.
- Julian says he wants to eat Taylor Swift's heart. Taylor Swift is an American pop singer
- Dean says, "What is this, The Godfather with fangs?" ?This references the 1972 movie based on Mario Puzo's novel The Godfather, which chronicles the trials and tribulations of the Corleone family as they battle the other New York City Mafia families for control of the crime empire.
- Dean says, "From what you told us, uh, this thing sounds new... or Freddy Krueger," referencing the famous dream killer played by Robert Englund in the Nightmare on Elm Street movie series since 1984, known for the clawed glove that he wears.
- Dean calls David "Romeo", referring to Romeo Montague from William Shakespeare's 1597 tragedy Romeo and Juliet. In commentary about the Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet are often referred to as "star-crossed lovers", meaning destiny will never allow them to be together, so they are destined for tragedy. In many ways, David and Violet are star-crossed lovers, because their families will likely never allow them to be together, just like Romeo Montague's family and Juliet Capulet's family from the Shakespeare play
- David says, "Sounds good, Buffy" to Dean. This refer to the 1992 movie and subsequent TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which features the adventures of a teenage girl, Buffy Summers, the "Chosen One," who is gifted with special abilities that allow her to fight vampires, demons, and other monsters
- Sal calls one of the werewolves "Old Yeller" referring to the 1957 drama about a dog
- Ennis calls David a "transformer" referring to the fictional characters from The Transformers comic books (1984 - present) and sci-fi/action film franchise (2004 - present). Transformers are robots from outer space that can turn into cars, trucks, or flying machines to obscure their true identities in our world.
- "Somehow" - by Caught a Ghost (plays during Ennis and Tamara's date)
- "Little Black Submarines" - by The Black Keys (plays when Ennis returns home and searches through his father's things)
- "Looking Glass" - by ERAAS (plays when Sal and Marv enter the secret club)

Part I of october57rain Review
Ok! All you Supernatural fans
I feel the CW and Kripke himself chose our show to introduce the new series Bloodlines because they know we are devoted fans. I also feel they believe we have an open mind to new adventures and the series Bloodlines is a new adventure.
I watched the Supernatural episode Bloodlines on the CW.com site again and after my second viewing I give it a thumbs up with four stars.
It is laced with Drama, Suspense, Romance and most of all super natural beings.
