|Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate a small town in Wisconsin where children are falling into comas for no apparent reason. The brothers discover that a Shtriga is creeping into the bedrooms of the children and stealing their "life force." While battling the Shtriga, Dean recalls a past mistake that almost cost Sam his life at the hands of the very same witch, an event which has fueled Dean's protectiveness over Sam and his blind obedience to his father (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).|
- Sam: Dude, dude, I'm not using this ID!
Dean: Why not?
Sam: Because it says "bikini inspector" on it!
- Sam: You know, I know I've given you a lot of crap for always following Dad's orders. But I know why you do it.
- Did John send the boys on this hunt so that Dean could finish the shtriga that almost took Sam?
- Dean tells Sam that this is not the first time they have encountered this shtriga.
- Sam get a new respect for why Dean always follows their father's orders.
- The credit card Dean uses for the guys' motel room is a MasterCard bearing the name of Kris Warren.
- The old woman in the hospital incorrectly calls the cross a crucifix. Crosses are only crucifixes when Jesus is on it, otherwise it is a cross.
- When Sam and Dean go to investigate the old woman in the hospital, the number of her room is 237. This is the same room number used in the movie The Shining. The same room number is used in Playthings.
- UFO - "Rock Bottom"
- Ozzy Osbourne - "Road to Nowhere"
- Title: Something Wicked this Way Comes is a 1962 story written by Ray Bradbury involving children involved with the supernatural. Bradbury was inspired by the line "By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes," from Shakespeare's MacBeth. Bradbury's novel was made into a movie in 1983, starring Jason Robards and Jonathan Pryce.
A portrait of a long-dead family is amazingly lifelike. Maybe that's because one of the likenesses is alive... and lethal.
