    Sam and Dean help a girl whose date became a victim of the "Hook Man," a famous urban legend that turns out to be real, in a small college town somewhere in Iowa. In order to save her and her father, the local minister, the brothers have to find the ghost's bones so they can destroy them. One tiny problem... they're in an unmarked grave.

    Another very good episode I thought. The cases seem to be very "safe". By "safe" I mean that it's hard to go bad when your storyline is about a "hook man". It didn't get too supernatural until the end of the episode, which is always good. We once again (common theme) see the inclusion of a female character to aid the fact that we don't have one. Not as deep as the episodes before it (hence the lower score) but still a very good episode on the whole.
